go to your odf files (I think its in 'other') and look for a file named 'const' and change the detail in there, it will have a section about warp.

all righ. In your "const" odf in the odf's/ships section you will see a thing called physics parameters. physicsFile = "constructionrigphys" or something like that. Change this to a physics file you want that any other ship has. In my new mod I did this with the const file and now every const ship in the game can warp. simple really

I believe the physics file used in the freight.odf file specifies a physics file to use. For the cargo ship, it's "cargo.odf". For either of these change the command to make them. "physicsFile = "sconstphys.odf."" change this to a physics file of your choice. As to make them autowarp to cover long distances I am not sure this is possible.

You can change the impulse speed to something really, really fast. Easily.

But why? Construction ships are supposed to be slow. It's like using cheat codes.

I wouldn't go that far to say it's cheating if you make the construction ship have a purpose that recquires being very fast. But the challenge to construction ships is supposed to be that they are slow and must be protected. But if you had a reason for changing this it wouldn't. I.E. making it have no shields to keep the game balance. Having super fast construction ships permanenlty would make the game too easy. That's just my personal opinion.
