EXCERPT FROM THE MODDING NEWS - Today at dawn Interpol agents raided a warehouse inside a small Southwest Asian country. Inside the warehouse were fifty people. They were chained to computer desks and all had laptops which were networked to a server farm also located inside the warehouse. All of the laptops had an old PC game which was Star Trek based on them. The owner of the warehouse claimed he leased it to a company known as Insta-Mod. He was detained by the police and questioned until they ascertained he had no knowledge useful or relavant to the investigation. There are no records about this Insta-Mod anywheres on the servers, which intiated a cascading HDD overwrite program upon the Interpol agents attempting to access them without the password protocols. Interpol's Cybercrime unit continues to investigate and follow up leads on the case. More information will be available later as The Modding News follows these breaking events.
tldr kthnxbai :)
Say wha? O.o

Something whispers me that thunderfoot just lost his mind - or he's about to do something great :D

Yo, buddy! You are assuming (wrongfully) I ever had a mind to lose in the first place. Surely by now we all know better. :lol: As to doing something great, nope. I'm the wrong guy to count on for greatness. "Barely adequate" I can do with ease. I leave greatness to those who can do so. Such as yourself. Not ever gonna be in the same league as you, modding wise, and there is no shame at all in admitting it publicly.
This was intended as a joke. I was watching one of those damnable Billy Mays infomercials and the post sorta happened. I realize now that it has fallen a little flat and isn't nearly as funny as I thought originally. Although the thought of you thinking I've ever been sane is outrageously hilarious. :rofl:

Ah, see.... there's the problem. You didn't use the word "MIGHTY" anywhere, nor did you scream at us for the entire length of the post!
:Puzzled: Mod-WOW, you'll be saying WOW every time. Are you following me, camera guy?
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha lol lol lol lol lol lol lol ;) ;)
This will help me so much, I'm just started using Mods and its still very hard to me. I want to make a new map for the game but don't know how to go about it see, my posting in ST: A2 Mapping for more information. Will this also allow for getting the AI to play the ships that I add to the other races in a campaign (one player) mission?
