Ok....out of the many problems I'm having with installing the Intrepid mod....the one that seems most important right now is the fact that I need something called "Bridge Commander Mod Package". Can someone please tell me where I can download this and possibly continue with my attempt to put Voyager in BC. Thanks alot. ;)

ok thing first thing i can tell you is u dont need the mod package to install them, alot of poeple say that and i dont know y, the best way to install mods is as follows

uninstall BC then go to the dir where u had it and check there are no files there (if there are delete them) reinstall bc v1.0 (dont not install the patch) find and install the lastest foundation plugins (they can be found here at bcfiles.com just click on search and type plugins) dl whatever mods you want and unzip the files to whereever u want, then copy and paste those files into the bc directory,(they should already appear on the list in qiuckbattle) if not go to they plugin.py file (should be in C:/bridgecommander/scripts/plugins) open it with notepad and type import Intrepid (this is if u were importing the intrepid model and remember the ship name must be the same as the ship files ie: if its in caps the name must also be in caps)

if this dont work then i dunno what u have done wrong cause i have done this and i have about 20 diff mods goin

Agreed. As long as you have the latest Foundation program. installation is easy. Once you install this in the main BC directory. Everything else will fall into place. I had the same problem about a month ago. Now I have picked up 36 ships and a modified Quick Battle 2.2 file that allows you to warp to any system in the known BC verse.

Good Luck :)

Oh, and keep in mind. The module ship files are " case " sensitive. If this is not done correctly. The game will crash if the ship(s) are chosen.

Ok........now this pretty much sucks. :mad:

I did your step 1, I uninstalled BC. Then I checked for extra files and deleted all that I found. After that I reinstalled the game and didn't DL the patch. I downloaded the file from BlackRook32 and the Foundation was put into my personal file. I already had the Mods DLed and set in a seperate file ready to go but after that I don't know what to do! In the instructions, it says that all I must do to put Voyager into BC is transer the unzipped folder into the the main root folder (which is at C:\Program Files\Activision\Bridge Commander) and from there it will put the correct files where they belong. I have done that many times and when I play the game in QB mode, Voyager never shows up. Is there something specific I must do with that Foundation folder? I am real sorry to irritate you but I'm not really technical when it comes these sorta things......I'm just a common computer guy. If someone helps me, please be somewhat specific. I really want Voyager in my game and I'll try anything to get it. Thanks again.

ok i think i know where ur goin wrong, once you unzip the ship mod go to where you unziped it, there should be 3 files data,stx,scripts u should be able to copy and paste these 3 files into ur bc directory it will ask you if u want to replace files just click yes to all once this is done it should work.

I did exactly what you said dude...but it didn't work. One thing though....you said that I should transfer all 3 files.......but the only 2 that are there to begin with are Scripts and Data. SFX is not there. Is there something I maybe have to do with the Foundation Folder? I'm not sure...just guessing. Oh....one other question: Is the Voyager under the list of Federation ships in Quick Battle Mode? I was curious and wanted to know. Thanks and I look forward to any responses. ;)

Can someone give me a link to where I can download the Bridge Commander Mod Package. Many people keep referring to this and maybe if I install this "thing".........I'll finally be able to put the coolest ship in the Federation fleet.......Voyager into my game. Thanks a bunch and if you have any useful info..please post it. I'm desperate to get this ship! (lol) :D
