I wold like to fly the Scimitar in singleplayer missions instat of the Sovereign, but the ship only looks like the Scimitar and it doesn'thave the Scimitars weapons. I think my problem is, that i only replacet some files of models instat of editing the missions pyc-files because, i don't know how to open and to edit them.

try renaming them and placing them where the original files were. you can delete the pyc files if you have the py files as the game will remake the pyc files in the right place(as long as you put the py files iin the right place)
ps before you tamper with anything MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR DIRECTORY so if anything goes pear shaped you can just replace it
i#ve got a backup, but my problem is i can only fly a Fake-scimitar, the ship only looks like a Scimitar and for this reason i thought i should open files that say what kind of ship the player flies in singleplayer-missions. And so i thought that someone has a tool to open such files to edit them.
I'm too cool to Post

I know how to do it but remember: PLEASE MAKE A BACKUP. if u don't u still can get the files back from ur bc disk
Here is how to do it: go to scripts/ships lets say u change the galaxy into a scimitar. Make backup of ur galaxy pyc and py file then delete them. Now copy the scimitar py and pyc file and paste them in the ships directory. rename the 2 files to galaxy py and pyc. Now go to scripts/ships/hardpints do the same thing u did previously Make backup of ur galaxy pyc and py file then delete them. Now copy the scimitar py and pyc file and paste them in the ships/harpoints directory. rename the 2 files to galaxy py and pyc. Now start bc and have fun!:D
PS: The scimitar is from the nemesis pack.:cya:
Thank you, i was able to fix the problem.:D : the saved games created always the ship in its condition before the changes. Now i've got a Galaxy looking like a Warbird withe the Hybrid's weapons and a Sovereign thats only called "Sovereign". I also made some crazy textures for the Scimitar.
