Im having trouble finding the file for the ships.. the one that tells the ships how to move and what not.. if there is even one.. its kinda hard to explain.. basicly i wanna change the physics of the game itself... any idea where i might be able to start????

If your trying to change what i think you are, about the ships impulse movement and such, you can't, i'm pretty sure thats all part of the .exe file, which we are forbidden to mod in anyway.

the physics are hard coded in the stbc.exe which is illegal to mod its self. But you can change the mass of ships which depending on thrust and wut not, will change the roll and acelleration of the ship. those are usually under the hull property of the hardpoint

you can also change the acceleration of ships by increasing the Max accel, and Max angular accel under the impulse engine property. the mass and rotation are not under the hull property, it's under the ship property, there are two lines that look like this:

Ambassador.SetMass(100.000000) Ambassador.SetRotationalInertia(10000.000000)

that's what changes how quick the ship rotates and how hard it's is to stop after you are already rotating.
