i am trying to make a mini war map. species 8472 defending fluidic space from the borg. i want it to be an instant action map.I want to make it so i can use the units i build into the map. for example. i made a bunch of ships for species 8472 and when i load the map they are not there at all. in the edit mode i have made it a two player map and i have team 1 as borg and team 2 as species 8472. the start positions are start position 1 forced as team 1 and position 2 forced as team 2. i dont understand what i am doing wrong. can some please help me?

Have you added these additional ships to the map editior, if not it will have a problem with intergrating them with your map

You (as said above) need to edit the map files in the odf - others folder. There should be various .odf files. I can't remember them name from name without looking, but find the "species 8472" one, and simply add the names of your ships to it. :)

no what i mean is that i am using the map editor and placing standard ships and stations where i want them. so when you play the map you dont have to build everything its already there and you can use it.
