well after a while you just know the files off by heart, but it's easier to find if you go by ship classes. for example the soveriegn

this is a federation starship, all fed ships/stations start with "F" this is a battle ship, largest and stongest. all battle ships have "battle" in the name.

so the soveriegn is fbattle.odf

another easy way is to look for the yard odf's that they are built from, remember what number along the button is to build it. so the soverign I beleive is the first unit buildable from fyard2.odf

heter. Open one of the main phaser ODF files using notepad (such as fbphas which belongs to either the federation starbase or the sovereign class) and look at the very top of the file. There you'll see a line which looks like this:

#include="odf file name"

where the odf file name is the next in the odf structure. Open this file, again with notepad and look for the entry which reads:

//The base amount of damage which the ordinance does with each hit damageBase = 80

the number is the value that can be changed. This command and value (varies from odf to odf) can be changed to reflect any value you like.

Ok I think i need to rephrase my question. I want to know how to find what specific phaser file in the phaser folder belongs to a specific ship in the ships folder. Like if i wanted to find the borg cubes phasers, how would I know which one belongs to it?

look at the weapon name in the weapon list in that ship/station ex. // Photon torpedos weapon4 = "fc1phot" weaponHardpoints4 = "hp01" "hp04"

you see the "fc1phot" part well that word in the quote which is fc1phot is the name of the phaser- so you look in the phasers folder and look for that name and edit whatever you want

*** IMPORTANT NOTE this example is using a PHOTON EXAMPLE it should be the same with the phaser prob. hoe that helps:-)
