You should probably do that with your whole A2 main folder, too. Most people are annoyed when things like that happen while doing a quick TT or sprite modification. ;)

yeah cheers mate yeah i tried on sfc3 lastnite and was wondering i couldn't work it out. so il have a go at that aswell cant wait to get a nice selection armada.

one last question is there a limit of ships you can build in a particular shipyard for instance you can originally build aegian,nebula,sovereign and galaxy in your advance shipyard. is there a limit how many you build in each ship yard could i for instance have up2 15 different ships i could build from one shipyard?

Actually, fourteen. I'm pretty sure that's the maximum.

...this question seems a lil confusing to me so i'll try my best to answer

IF you mean is there a unit limit to the number of ships already built then the answer is no (unless you have the FLOPS patch installed then you can set a limit) if you want you can spam defiants to your hearts content

IF you mean the number of ships built from a shipyard (i.e. build slots) then yes there is a limit to the amount buildable...somewhere in the lower teens i believe (13??) for A2 and ... 10 for A1

hope this helped
