I just have afew questions about modding really... like how do I get the SOD importer/exporter to work with milk shape 3d? Does anyone have a hard point map for any of the Schimitar class ships? Is there and ODF command or an ODF editor that will allow me to chage the overall hull strength of ships? These are my questions fel free to comment, and please give accurate answers. Thank you Sincerely Tyler Veinot P.S. I don't think I have anything to post, other then my questions at this time.

1) The SOD importer/exporter for MS3d only works with the stock (models that shipped with the game) models. It will not import any 3rd party models without editing the program (and this version is retained by a bare handful of people). The reason that this was done was to stop mesh theft. 2) Currently, the best bet would be to contact the original person who converted the scimitar. If anything is likely then its them to have the necessary hardpoint map. 3) Changing the strengths of ships is easy:

// Hitpoints shieldGeneratorHitPoints = 57 enginesHitPoints = 57 weaponsHitPoints = 57 lifeSupportHitPoints = 57 sensorsHitPoints = 57

This section of the ODF deals with actual critical hardpoint hitpoints. The higher the number the theoretical longer time the ship should last.

//Max Shield Strength & Begining Shield Strength <500 maxHealth = 285 //Rate at which shield recharges (points per second... we think) shieldRate = 0.9

These two lines represent the current shield amount the ship/station has. Again increasing these should increase the length of time the ship can survive.

Also in future if you have any questions to get complete answer you need to specify which of the armada games you want to edit. Without knowing this its more difficult.

Thank you, sorry its armda 2 I'm editing, I'm trying to remove all sheilds off the borg ships and make them all hull impacts only. removing the sheilds and the sheild hp's from the .odf files and increasing the overall sysyem hitpoints should accomplish this. Thank you for your help Sincerely Tyler Veinot
