yes, me again- i was just going to go 'off topic' in my other thread, but why not spam up the server, i think it was either on the bridge commander forums or here that there was a thread dedicated to spam.. and there were quite a few pages of it. anyway, this time i'd like to be able to add more than 1 station the construstion ship build list of a single race in a2. the build list only supports 14 stations, and there's 13 to begin with. the thing that annoys me the most about this is that i know i've had this same problem before with a total conversion or race mod a long time ago, and i remember being able to fix it, but of course i cant remember how. i've looked for mods that expand the build lists but, as my luck goes, i found none. shipyards arent really as much of a problem, but it would be nice to be able to expand their build lists a little bit too.

The only solution I know of is to create a second const ship, as the game won't allow more than 14 items per.

The Only Thing I Can Thing Of Bar What kel333 Has Already Sed Is Two Use Some Stations As Buildable Stations And Others As Ones You Get When You Start The Game Creatable In Map Editor

a good midway in armada 2 is to have the constuctor able to "refit" into an advanced one using the fusion weapon.

thats a good idea achilles, it makes more sence then just throwing the 2ond construstion ship onto the starbase's build list. still, i coulda sworn that somewhere along the line i had this same problem and was able to download something that expanded the build lists by just 2 or 3 items.. but oh well, i'll just rig up a construstion-ship version of the fusion for now. :uhoh:

Going along the same way as Achilles has with his idea, how about another alternative? For those of you that have played the FO3 Beta, and have played as the Dominion, you will notice that the Construction Ship can turn into a Freighter, and then the Freighter can turn back into a Construction Ship. What I propose, is having two odf files (for two construction ships) and to make them swap over. Thus, you'd have a Construction Ship that could build Tier #1 Structures, then another that could build Tier #2 Construction ships and such. I'm working on something like this for Zero Hour, though it isn't all working correctly yet. But still, it would be a pretty neat way of having it work. :)

That is a good idea, I may try something like that for my armada 2 rerelease. The Norway as an advanced construction ship doesn't float my boat...

Yeah, I guess it is... Anyhow I am going to try this morphing construction ship thing later this week hopefully.
