I was wondering if anyone had made a ship which could research and the things it researched be rather then techs that let you build new ships but techs that do nothing. The tech pods would however have weapons on them.
Example-you build a sovereign it has normally one phaser and one Q. Torpedo now this research would be named "One Q. Torpedo tube" it would have a single "fbattlephot". So this research would give the sovereign an additional torpedo tube.
Second part- refits - now you can have an akira without the chainreaction pulsar I believe so, could you make it so you could have a ship that when initially built didn't get all its weapons and when you research a tech it get additional weapons.
Example-you build a sovereign (it has one phaser and one Q. Torpedo); at your research station you research a tech called "alliance with the romulans" it will then activate 2 romulan pulsars that were always on the sovereign just not enabled.
I know my punctuation is nonexistent :)

It is possible to do the second and although not entirely difficult, it is time consuming and can get complex when making files etc. The first one, I beleive is also possible but I would not be the one to ask. PM Elrond, eh know's a good bit about using pods.
id like somthing like birth of the federation or somthing where you have say a tos Constitution and you send it to a repair facility and it takes say twice as long as it does to make them and it refits to the TMP 1-3 Constitution an then the connie 4-6 same with Excelcior class and so on you know new engines and such
The concept sounds a bit tedious during a game for just one ship. Stick the weapons on there and go at it is my motto.
For one ship, i agree it is rather pointless. Yet however, if he has wider ideas there after, then it would be good to get into.
it sonds abit involved. while it is a good concept, i don't really like it. doesn't mean other don't though, i'm just being honest.
the 2nd is quite simple you could just treat it as a fusion that fuses with itself and adds weapons
Yeah i use the Evolve function to refit ships, as it's not possible to do it at shipyards.
