Right, long story short, i would like to know if there is a way to increase the amount of ships available in a fleet.

Now currently the amount you can have is 16 in one fleet. I would like to increase that.

I doubt this can be done but there is no harm in asking. Also, which files would be the ones to edit, my guess is it would be the RTS_CFG file.

Thanks in advance guys. :)

Short answer: No. Long answer: Nope. It's hard-coded into the game (if I remember from last discussion over this) so it can't be changed. A nice idea though, everytime it's brought up, because I don't consider 16 ships to be a fleet, but ah well.

I guess that sums it up then, i guess i can't do it. I do however agree with you about not considering 16 ships as a fleet.

Looking at the fleet's in some of the DS9 episodes, there were definately more than 16 ships in those.:p

This is why you can assign fleets to a group. :)

Most of my battles tend to involve way more than a hundred ships, in fact I would go so far as to guess that many battles are as big as anything in the dominion war.

Yeh.

Select all of the ships you want to add to a fleet, and press CTRL and 1. When you want another group, select the required ships and press CTRL and 2, etc.

If you want to add new ships to group 1, select it and press CTRL, SHIFT and 1, the same with 2 and 3 etc.

If you wish to remove ships from groups, select them and press CTRL and -. :)

Does the original game or manual refer to them as fleets, by the way? Far as i've seen, it's just a term that the players have came up with to describe the group structure... Just a thought. I prefer to think of the groups as "Task Force"s anyway, not fleets.

I alredy knew about that, I thought you meant you could group the groups of 16 together, which as far as I am awhere is impossible.

Atlantis: I thought that the tutorial refered to groups of ships as fleets?

Yes, the manual repeatedly uses the term fleets

In Star Trek: Armada 2, ships can be grouped into fleets which will then respond as a group to the orders you give them. To create a fleet, left-click and drag or Shift-select a number of units (up to 16) that you want in a fleet. Once selected, press Ctrl-(number) (the Ctrl button plus one of the number keys at the top of the keyboard), and those units will reflect that they are now in that fleet—the number of the fleet will appear next to the ship when selected. To select the fleet, simply press the number key for that fleet.

A ship can be added to a fleet by selecting it and hitting Ctrl-Shift and the number of the fleet. To remove a unit from a fleet, select the unit and hit Ctrl–(minus key on the top of the keyboard). To quickly move to the location of a fleet, a double-tap on the fleet number will bring you to that fleet's location.

A few things to note about fleets:
• Ships can only belong to one fleet at a time • A construction facility can belong to a fleet, and every ship produced by that facility will automatically join that fleet (until the 16 slots are filled) • If a fleet is selected, any AI orders given become the default for that fleet. Changing AI orders will affect the entire fleet.
