I just remembered something cool. You can change the ships you start with when playing an instant action game. Open the odf files and select "other". Then, choose a race file (fed, kling, rom, borg, I don't know for card and 8472) and use Wordpad to open it. then, near the bottom is a list of ships you start with in standard unit mode, fed looks like this:

standardUnits1 = "fconst.odf" // federation construction ship standardUnits2 = "fconst.odf" // federation construction ship standardUnits3 = "fbase.odf" // starbase standardUnits4 = "fscout.odf" // venture class *

* or something like that, I don't remember

just type in the number and the name and the kind of ship for example if you want to add the Enterprise-E type it so it looks like:

standardUnits1 = "fconst.odf" // federation construction ship standardUnits2 = "fconst.odf" // federation construction ship standardUnits3 = "fbase.odf" // starbase standardUnits4 = "fscout.odf" // venture class standardUnits5 = "fente.odf" // USS Enterprise-E

NOTE: The "//" 's MUST be lined up and you cannot exceed 9 units!

I don't know if some of you know this, but It's up there anyway, so there! :lol:

P.S. I use ArMod II and I edited the Akira class to fire quantums instead of photons and Akira class ships no longer have names! Help! :(

No offence, but this is common knowledge. :uhm:

Ah, doesn't matter. What if we didn't know? You could've been of great help. It's good you gave it a shot. If you keep being informative, no matter how 'obsolete' it may sound to experienced modders, there are always people who don't know. So... er.. Keep it up! all info is welcome! (except the things you already told of course ;) )
