Im trying to add some to a map but they dont show up during play. I add them as team 8, and only play with 4 teams. The ships have 0 crew and should be able to be captured. Any advice?
I have had this problem before, can't think have I solved it. Try adding them in either as Team 0, or as Team 1 - 4 (randomly). See if that helps. :)

IIRC if you add them to a team that's not in the game then they don't get placed if that player is not in the game. Team 0 is the best for this, as its always in the game and it dosen't give any particular team an advantage by showing them where ships are placed.

I have had that problem and I think the solution is here : if the map is a #player map the derelict object must be assigned as a #+1 team than it will appear in game.
eh? team 0 doesnt let me control it.

Hence the problem with Team 0. Team 0 is the same team the Ferengi and Planets use. It isn't controllable. If you beam onto a ship that is Team 0, you will simply add to that teams crew, and the ship will attack you. If you have Team 0 ships on a game with full crew, then they will attack any who come into proximity to them. My only other suggestion, is to have all the ships as Team 1. You are always going to have at least one player on a game, and generally, you will be the only Human player, thus you'd know where the derelict ships are placed anyway.
I didn't make it!
They are map units if their not on the map to start they won't show up at all. Second if you are going to have 4 teams the dealicts need to be team 5 and crewless at mission start. This is how I add dealict ships. In truth though it doesn't matter what team they start on (1 - 5) as long as they have 0 crew.
If it doesn't matter what team they are put on, then why did his team 8 ships not show?
When set to team 1, they dont show either. I added them to the map in the map editor and set the crue to 0. Is this right?
