Renaming Camarasaurus

Unread postby ChrisTom » Sun, 1st Aug 2010 5:36

Hello everybody. I have recently learned about the wonders of modding (which I am rather enjoying!!), but I have a question which will seem very noobish...

I am hoping to rename Camarasaurus to the more common name of Apatosaurus. I already know where to find the files (Locales English was where I was told) and how to change them (simply open up notepad and retype Apatosaurus in it's place).

My problem is that I simply cannot find it's "row". Like this:

Unit_allo "Allosaurus";
Unit_spino "Spinosaurus";
Unit_trex "Tyrannosaurus";
Unit_galli "Gallimimus";
Unit_raptor "Velociraptor";
Unit_cerato "Ceratosaurus";
Unit_dilopho "Dilophosaurus";
Unit_alio "Alioramus";
Unit_dein "Deinonychus";
Unit_bary "Baryonyx";
Unit_orni "Ornithomimus";
Unit_acro "Acrocanthosaurus";
Unit_alberto "Albertosaurus";
Unit_yangchu "Yangchuanosaurus";
Unit_diplo "Diplodocus";
Unit_steg "Stegosaurus";
Unit_anky "Ankylosaurus";
Unit_para "Parasaurolophus";
Unit_tricera "Triceratops";
Unit_brach "Brachiosaurus";
Unit_apato "Apatosaurus";
Unit_iguan "Iguanodon";
Unit_homalo "Homalocephale";
Unit_maias "Maiasaura";
Unit_edmont "Edmontosaurus";
Unit_cory "Corythosaurus";
Unit_pachy "Pachycephalosaurus";
Unit_styrac "Styracosaurus";
Unit_toro "Torosaurus";
Unit_dryo "Dryosaurus";
Unit_kentro "Kentrosaurus";
Unit_pano "Panoplosaurus";
Unit_thes "Thescelosaurus";
Unit_ourano "Ouranosaurus";
Unit_tenon "Tenontosaurus";
Unit_wuer "Wuerhosaurus";


These were all the files I could find with Dinosaur names. Am I missing something? Could somebody please point me in the direction? I'm rather embarassed I have to ask this but I can't find any other source.

Thank you very much for your patience and time.

With all regards,

It`s down a little further :facepalm: Where else would it be?
And you can hit control+f in the locals\eng.txt folder, and type in "camara" in the little box,click "find next" and it wil find camara.
LOL to the Maximum. :P

Thank you so much! I will be honest, I never even knew what the command Ctrl + F was for until you told me. This will come in handy when wanting to edit things, so I appreciate it!

With all regards,

What do you mean you can't find Apatosaurus in the list? It's right there in your quote, between Brachiosaurus and Iguanadon. :hehee:

Just find the following line in Canara.ini;
Code: Select all
    ScreenName=$Unit_camara;
And replace it with this line:
Code: Select all
    ScreenName=$Unit_apato;

You don't even need to look in the language file unless you want to add a dinosaur name or if you want to check to see if it exists already.

What do you mean by "more common name of Apatosaurus"? Camarasaurus and Apatosaurus are completely different. Brontosaurus on the other hand was an Apatosaurus with a Camarasaurus' skull.
