thanks much gene

Do you mean, how do you install it?

If so, please could you provide a link to which mod it is, so we could have a look?

no, i have downloaded a few ships and most of them just come with instructions on where to place the files (IE sod, textures,sounds,odf). my grandson is not very good at doing this manually so i wanted to try and make an .exe file for these ships so all you have to do is click and install......

First, welcome to the Community. We're glad you're here! I think it is really cool your grandson is interested in Star Trek and you are helping with this. I play Armada 2 with my son. Not as regularly as I like but still it is something we do together.

You are looking for a way to allow your grandson to point, click, and install some ships into A2 with a generic installer or some type of mod manager, correct? Because he is not very good at installing them manually? I do not think there is a generic auto installer available, but I am unsure. I do not know if the following will help any but it is something I did a very long time ago to try and explain how to place a custom ship into A2. I tried to write it so someone who is not comfortable with adding files to a game could read it and at least understand the process. I hope it helps. Minor Mod Tutorial

also if you have winrar that can be used to create basic to complex install files... i'm not sure how, i've never done it, but once again, google holds the key

thanks for the post!! i have looked into it. what you are talking about is creating an sfx archive. right now im looking into creating a batch file, looks like it could be promising but ALOT of work. what i was hoping to find was a simple install builder but i haven't located one yet so for now ill see what i can do by creating a batch file to see what happens or does not happen LOL.

thanks again gene
