Recently I started going through all the torpedo files I have cause I didn't like some of the ones some of my ships used. I've been going through each one and making notes and ratings on color, accuracy, speed, and dammage. I was just doing this for my own personal use but figured some other people might find a use for it. I have over 150 torpedo files and even though I've only gone through about 30 of them I should be done in like 2 or 3 weeks depending on how much time I have. I downloaded all my ships from here and Dream-Arts Production so I problay have about 90% of the torpedo's from each site since I have almost 300 ships (yes I am insane). Was just wondering if when I'm done you guys would like me to post it or if somone already did somthing like this so I can save myself alot of time?

I have to say, I have never done a thing like that, I only clear up my ships (saving hard drive space). And I have to say (no offense meant), you are insane! I have to admit that I am also insane, who else would already have 4 school courses out of 13 finnished for this year (no I am not kidding, I all did that on school)?

it sounds like a cool thing to do. I was going to make a Cannon Torpedo mod, i might still do that.(and that sounds like me, i'm supost to have 12 chapters of business math done at end of term, but i've not even finished the first chapter and i've only got 12 days of school left(guess who hates math))

Now to have thoughed of it more, it would be handy. I hate making torpedoes, I mostly modify existing torpedoes for my cause.

PS

@ Borg121: Only 12 chapters? That little? My record is 1.5 chapters of math, each has 8 paragrahps, with each 8 pages, a day (guess who loves math and physics and chemistry).

i also alter torpedos for my own personal use, i forget what torpedo, i gave it to the Defiaint, and made toned the torp down to 100 damage, and made it as pulse fire as possible, and REALLY fast, i gave it 3 extra zeros at the end. It's fun.(and i'm only in the 9th grade, so it is only 12 chapters.)

Good to see there is atleast some interest. Main reason I started this is because my Sovy's torpes tracked like rocks and looked fugly and one of my Klingon ships had torps that 4-6 of them would make the Borg Cube that you get from the 1.2 patch into spacedust. Once I'm done and have posted them anyone who has stock torps available to download from BCFiles (or any other popular mod site) that I may have missed can tell me about them and I'll update it. Figured since the BC modding community has greatly extended the life of this game for me it's only right to give somthing back to the comunity. Since I just started modding this was the best I could think of.

Edit: If you think making up this database and having this many torps and ships is insane after I finish up with the database I'm going to start making all the ships cannon to each other. I actualy already started and have 5 ships set up to test and compare the rest with but thats when I ran into the torpedo problem and I'm off on a tangent doing this database now.

btw, anyone have sugestions on how to balance out TOS and Enterprise series ships with TNG era and later ships? I know there torps and other weps should be weaker and slower firing/recharge rate but what about hull strength, shield strength, and shield recharge?

I'm also trying to balance StarWars ships in there also. So far I've only done some fighters and I've given them weak shields but a recharge rate of 25-35 so a single beam won't kill them unless you keep it on them but multiple beams or torps and there toast. I also made them pretty damned fast so they could avoid torps and pulse weaps. Any ideas from others who have been able to balance SW with ST would be apreciated.

Damn that was one long edit. :P
