You know, when you have a ship without crew in game, ferengi scavengers will come and take it away, the same if you have trading station, ferengi trading ship will appear. It is possible to make more kind of ships appear simmilary? I was thinking about some kind of pirate ship that will randomly appear and dissapear.

Ultimately this would depend on what you are after. If you are after other Scavengers (to come and 'capture' derelict ships), or other cargo ships (to come and trade with you) then this is more than possible, yes. If however, you are looking to add map ships to the game, of which will appear, attack random targets, and then (if not destroyed first), would disappear from the game map, then I don't know if that is possible.

Tell me, is it possible to add ships that will go after derilict ships? I know, that I can change sod file etc, but if it is possible to add more of them. You know, that three different ships will be aproaching derilict ships or so.

You simply create the odfs and sods for these ships and then you have to place these on the margins of the map in the mad editor...

^^ Slightly more complicated than that :lol: You'd need to make sure you (unless you create a new race) have the race labelled as 'Ferengi'. Ultimately you'd be best off copying the Marauder .odf files to a new folder, renaming and editing the contents of it, and then (as EAS has said) create the new .sod etc, and then impliment it into the game. Build Buttons, Wireframes, Admirals Log image etc are all up to you though. They aren't a nessecity, but do 'complete the package'.
