First off, I would like to thank everyone for their previous help, and I apologize to those that I did not reply back to. Time does not always permit! Okay, so, I have some new questions for me current mod: Shipyards... I'm still having issues adding a 3rd yard. I tried to copy and rename files of fyard2, as I had read according to another post... the game crashed! I would like to ask if ANYONE out there has created Wireframes, Buildbuttons and odf's for the X Yard (or any other Fed Shipyard that is missing these things,) that they could share. Every attemp to add the 3rd yard has failed, and I'm at the end of my fuse! I also really wanted to add the new Monarch Class Refit... again, no build buttons or wireframes. My game (for whatever reason cashes without these items) Also, I have noticed on some of the ships I have added that they have descriptions when you place the mouse over the build button or ship, but others don't. Can/How do I add descriptions for the ships that don't have any? Finally... I'm having some confussion on what order I would like to place my Starships in my ship yards. I want the order to reflect the class (Fighter/Cruiser/BattleShip), but can't find info on some of the vessels, so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great. The ships are: Venture/Serpant/Oberth/Saber/Defiant/Norway/Centuar/Akira/Miranda/Intrepid/ Curry/Iwo Jima/Steamrunner/Ares/Ambassador/Ageian/Arcadia/Renaissance/ Galaxy/Cheyenne/New Orleans/Nebula/Endeavour/Poseidon/Sovereign/ Prometheus/Nelson/Trafalgar/Tempest/Titan/Andromeda/Eximus/Excalibur/ Sigma/Midway/Monarch/Luna Thank you All, your help means sso much, Sincerely Bernice:beer:
Are you sure that you added the yard to your techtree. What position is the yard in on the construction ship, because if it is builditem12 it won't build.
As for descriptions, they are controlled in the ships .odf file. Here is the "description" of the Caddebostan.
tooltip = "Nebula Class - Gemini Effect, Engineering Team, Shield Disruptor & Point Defense Phaser." verboseTooltip = "Nebula-class starships have been refitted for combat since the Dominion War. With an extensive array of multi-purpose weaponry and new technology at its disposal, the Nebula is a great complement to the Federation fleet."
The order you build the ships is up to you, how many yards do you have, 3?
I also see that you got my Luna class :) Hope it isn't causing you any problems, I submitted a buildbutton but haven't seen it posted yet.
Lord Trekie - I placed the Yard in buildItem14, since I already have a thee Headquaters Base in the 13 spot. I thought 14 was the max? I'm considering just starting from the begining in a minute! LOL! I'm trying one more time and then I'm gonna go back to my previous settings to see if the game still crashes!

Well unfortunatly for you I think the highest number is 11 because it starts at 0, so those extra stations etc need a new construction ship to build from, there are a few you can download. 14 may be the max but that would mean that the station in buildItem13 would be the last one that you see. Hope this helps.
oh dear... you are so right... I totally forgot that! Anywho... seems there may have been another problem cause the game was crashing reguardless! Guess I'm starting from the beginning. Argh! Edit: Lord Trekie, Just to let you know... I hadn't yet Tried out the Luna Class, but can't wait! I am hoping to have 3 ship yards... but now I am starting over! Just need to figure out the class ored for the ships! LOL!
Good luck. It is possible you just have to be carefull. Even though the stuff you are doing is relativly simple you should check out Westworlds Big book of modding. Just to give you an idea of what can be acomplished, I have 5 shipyards for the federation building around 50-56 different ships including one yard for hero units (NX Ent-Ent F, Voy, Defiant, and a few others). Your errors sound relativly simple yet hard to catch. it is a good idea to add ships one or a few at a time, that way you know where you screwed up. Again, good luck.
I Have Read The "Big Book" ... Or most of it... some of it is confusing to me. I usually save every mod I do (one mod or shipat a time)... and once I know it works, then go on. but I think I'm gonna save more than one back mod from now one.! But I do all my mod's to be played in the single player missions, not Instant Action. I'm starting to wonder if that is the problem... are my mods conflicting with the Single Player Programming? I'm looking into it now, but I do thank you for the help... and still can't wait to try out the Luna Class!
I know I asked about techtrees before, but there is a seperate techtree for each mission, a2_fed01 - a2_fed10, you may have to do a lot of copying and pasting from the techtree that you edited to these, assuming that you didnt already.
Erm, is this for A1 or A2?? A1 has 11 build spaces available (0-10) and A2 has 14 (0-13).
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

Finally... I'm having some confussion on what order I would like to place my Starships in my ship yards. I want the order to reflect the class (Fighter/Cruiser/BattleShip), but can't find info on some of the vessels, so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great. The ships are: Venture/Serpant/Oberth/Saber/Defiant/Norway/Centuar/Akira/Miranda/Intrepid/ Curry/Iwo Jima/Steamrunner/Ares/Ambassador/Ageian/Arcadia/Renaissance/ Galaxy/Cheyenne/New Orleans/Nebula/Endeavour/Poseidon/Sovereign/ Prometheus/Nelson/Trafalgar/Tempest/Titan/Andromeda/Eximus/Excalibur/ Sigma/Midway/Monarch/Luna
Fighter - Venture Scout - Oberth Advanced Scout - Serpant Destroyer/Escort - Saber, Miranda, Nelson Frigate - Aegian, Curry, Light Cruiser - (Intrepid), Centuar, Norway, Iwo Jima, Arcadia, Midway Medium Cruiser - (Intrepid), Steamrunner, Ares, Renaissance, Cheyenne, New Orleans, Heavy Cruiser - Akira, Ambassador, Nebula, Poseidon, Andromeda, Sigma Battleship - Defiant, Prometheus, Trafalgar, Eximus Dreadnaught - Galaxy, Sovereign, Titan, Excalibur, Monarch, Luna Unknowns - Endeavour, Tempest Note, that's just personally how I would have it. Others might have it differently. Anyhow, I suggest you get access to ships in that order (if you're doing it in strength increments). The Intrepid is down in brackets because really, it could fit in any however, I would have it more on the Light Cruiser side of things, rather then the Medium Cruiser.
