I've got 2 Mods on my computer for Armada 1 the mods are installed on seperate armada files. But one of the mods, while making the borg incredible take away abilities from the races. whereas the other mod has great abilities for all the other races but has things on the borg i dont like. so my solution is simple, alter the ODF files of the borg in Armada Xtreme to have the transwarp and other abilities of the Borg from Borg Incursion. theres just one problem. I'm a total amature at coding and when i tried to alter the files myself the whole game crashed after i altered the abilities of a simple borg cube. so i'm looking for a Modder who can do the job for me when i gather a list of the files to be modded. or an ODF Editer program for armada 1 anybody think they can help?

STAUM 2.0, Star Trek: Armada 2 Downloads, Star Trek: Armada 2 ODF Editors contains both an A1 and A2 version odf editor. as for the odf. Best way to learn is to do, i'll help but i wont DO it for you.

Thanks, the program has been very useful to me and an idea occured to me last night which i've since tried and it works i got the original odf files from filefront and i transfered them into the borg incursion folder. and today i used the program you sent a link for to make some other alterations to the fedaration and the borg and i've also discovered the wonders of a superslide game, cause one of the first things i always did was build some ships and go steal a fedaration constructor. with super slide, while it's a little more expensive in the long run, i no longer need to. its too bad tho that armada 2 doesnt have superslide but i'll figure out how to get a fedaration contructor as the borg eventually

Well thank you thats why i released the program :D to help people learn to mod and to ease people's lives a bit maybe move the modding process along in bigger mods at a quicker pace.

As for the fed/borg its rather simple open up the the borg.odf in the other file and look around it should have the starting units for the game in there at the end just add fconst.odf and it should be fine.

yeah i did that recently and it went pretty well, i started off with a borg construction ship along with 2 fedaration (this was playing as the fedaration btw) and i did the same on the borg and in the odf files of the different versions of armada 1 that i have and i'm ready to play. I was just thinking of making some alterations to another mod i've got installed but it's not worth the hassle when i can just copy abilites from other ships and stick them into the odf files i want to alter
