i've done it to fed mission 4 (along the neutral zone) and it works just fine in the map editor, but it makes my game CTD. any advice?

Plenty, but i'd like to make sure its relevant.
What in particular were you changing?
im working on a mod to change the single player missions (see my post under mdding and editing, "New Fed Campaign?") and i've moved everything around, but deleted no paths. i also changed the romulan ships to federation, while changing the fed's team to 6, keeping them in place of the romulan team. i used nebula specific to Midnight universe and also gave the borg a transwarp portal.
i also have a Team 1 for the actual player, thats not changed at all.
I didn't make it!
Did you adjust the mission specific techtree files to reflect your changes? That must be done as well. CTD events because of inaccurate or incomplete techtree files has been a common problem throughout ImpSPCam.

I suspect that changing the race on the federation caused it, there are scripts for mission objectives in more or less every mission that I suspect might fail if you change the team of the federation to something else.

The key to mission/cmapaign modding is to make sure you have kept all the "tags" in place, so you have say you have changed the roms for the feds, but did you change to the designations in the mao editor?
yeah, the romulans were origonaly team 6, i deleted the rom stations and ships and replaced them with fed versions, now the default team on newly placed objects is team 1 i therefore changed the new feds to team 6 via double click to open the object edit window no techtree or any other file was changed besides the .bzn

Did you delete or edit a hero ship in the campaign? Like the USS Inverness? Changing the actual ship odf identity tag in the ship's properties or deleting it will cause a CTD aswell especially if the ship triggers an event.
no, i did not touch any of the original ships, (2 scouts, 2 construction ships, an arkia, and the enterprise)
