Hey, if you copy-paste the part of the .odf that you've edited into here, maybe we could see the problem and give you a hand

Change the weapons to the following (you could copy/paste this if necessary):

//Corbimite Refractor weapon3 = "hcorbom" weaponHardpoints3 = "hp34" "hp35" "hp36"

// Towing Beam weapon4 = "gtracbm" weaponhardpoints4 = "hp12"

// Slipstream Drive weapon5 = "slipstream" weaponHardpoints5 = "hp04" "hp05"

With weapons of any sort the weapon number and weaponHardpoints number must be consecutive, i.e the first weapon should be 1, the second should be 2, third 3 and so on.

// phaser weapon1 = "fbphas" weaponHardpoints1 = "hp01" "hp02" "hp03" "hp04" "hp05" "hp26" "hp27" "hp28"[/i]

Ill explain this

// phaser - This explains to the editor that this weapon is a phaser

weapon1 - This tells the game that this is the 1st weapon that the ship will use for more weapons you will change this to: weapon2 - For weapon number 2 weapon3 - For weapon number 3 etc

"fbphas" - This tells the game which phaser odf to use, you must include " " for it to work

= - Tells the game which item to use

weaponHardpoints1 - Tells the game for this weapon ( Number 1 ) it will use the following hardpoints "hp01" "hp02" "hp03" "hp04" "hp05" "hp26" "hp27" "hp28"

Depending on the weapon u will need to change it for each ( example shown below )

//phaser weapon1 = "fbphas" weaponHardpoints1 = "hp01" "hp02" //photon torpedoe weapon2 = "fbphot" weaponHardpoints2 = "hp03" "hp04"

The Hardpoints are the areas on the SOD file where it will use this item.

If you do not know which hardpoints the ship has then if it was created by someone else ask them, if you want to add hardpoints, u should download Ulta Trek Model Viewer which can be found at ASSIMSOFT - but u need to have experience to use this software or ask someone who knows how to use it to add the hardpoints.

Hope that helps :)
