The purpose of this mod:

1. Make the scanner module (newly rust colored) easier to identify vs. the sensor module (standard gray color).

2. Make the visual (3D) sensor and scanner modules different from the shield modules on the ship. I went with the same yellow hue which matches several other default Gal Civ 2 modules.

3. I wanted to make the scanner module rsut colored just like the thumbnail I created, but currently the game does not seem to accept separate custom 3D scanner data.

Make sure you back up your files first! These go into your game directory as indicated by the folder name. For example the files in the "GalCiv2-Gfx-Models" folder goes into your C:Program Files\GalCiv2\Gfx\Models directory. The dashes separate folder names. Make sure you put these in the game directory. Unless you put them in the correct game directories they will not function.

Please leave comments on coloring as I'm open to adjusting the coloring and shading.

How would change the color of the sensor?

Nevermind my earlier post :) seems I had missed the change in my own GCTypes.xml :)

The reason it doesn't seem to accept custom scanner data I think is because it (the survey module) uses the same model as the sensor modules. Change it in either GCTypes.xml or create an identical survey module in the mods-folder and tell it to use the "Scanner0" model instead. It works great for me and looks nice too! :)

Usefull. I like it. I'll wait until the Mods folder works before using it though.
