what do i edit to change a ship like the USS Venture from single player into another class such as the C2 Venture galaxy
what you do for one ship does for all of them. if you replace the galaxy modle with a p81 galaxy, all galaxy class ships are now now that p81 modle. so install the venture modle files into the galaxy file and rename the hardpoint. and your done. but it makes the galaxy you had before c2x's unplayable

a better way to do this is to edit the mission scripts to change which ship is loaded,
i've tried that once, tried changeing it to akira, i messed my game up pretty badly.

Or, since most ingame ships have their own py's, edit that. Search for it and you will find. For example, where there's two galaxy's, the Dauntless and B for example, there will be a galaxy.py with the dauntless' model and a B.py which calls the galaxy model, but adds new textures. Some ships have the same models, some different. For those that use stock models, you do have to alter either the mission or the map scripts.
thats somethin that eluded me then. i've never found single player hardpoints unless its for a specific mission like the e2m2 warbird with the enhanced tractors. the rest just share pyc files. but i think if you use the MPE you can assign different modles different hardpoints. like the nemesis pack enterprise.
