Hello all! First off, i must say that i'm a total noob with the BC modding community, and bridge commander as well for that matter. I have much experience with modding other games, but just picked this one up today and have been throwing in all sorts of pretty cool modifications since this morning. So far i'm running 1.1 with KM1.0 and Nanofx among others. I have searched the forums for quite some time and have failed to come up with anything definate. Basically my question is this: is it possible to change the bridge for the singleplayer campaign? specifically to viper's awesome Enterprise-A bridge. I know that with some mods out there, one can easily change the bridge for the quick battles, and not only that i've been successful at changing the actual ship for the singleplayer campaign (using the singleplayer customizer mod). But i am still unable to change the actual interior/bridge for singleplayer campaign mode. So far i've tried renaming the the enterpriseA bridge script files to the "galaxybridge.py/.pyc" script files, but it didnt quite work. i noticed the crew positions were changed slightly, but it was still the galaxy bridge. Any help/answers regarding this would be greatly appreciated! -Thanks!

you really wont be able to change the bridge for the SP campaign... well, with alot of scripting you could i suppose... but it wont quite work and would crash because the SP scripts have specific animations for the galaxy and sovereign bridges that wouldnt work on other bridges... think about it - if you use the Ent-A bridge, there would be no place for Picard, Data, the Vulcan Ambassador, etc to sit... and in the very beginning, when Saffi and Picard walk onto the Galaxy Bridge, it wouldnt work on any other bridge... so it will crash quite frequently... also, when Korbus walks onto the bridge to the tactical console, when Brex goes to Engineering, etc - all those are specifically written animations that only work on the bridges they were written for... i suppose someone could write up all new animations and all new scripts for the SP campaign, but such a project would be too large a task and too much to even try to do... thats prolly why in BC's 6 year history no one has bothered to - it would be too large a task, really...

so for SP, youre stuck with the Gal and Sov bridges only... any others will cause problems...

Thanks for the response Jimmy! and hmm, that certainly is a good point that I seemed to have failed to think of... If it were a matter of simple glitchy character position errors throughout the campaign on the different bridge. i could definately cope; but the more i tinker and more i think about it, it seems like it would result in hard crashes as you say. I suppose life would be better off with somekind of TMP campaign instead, this way there would be matching ships and the constitution wouldnt be so outclassed...smells like a project! :) Ah well, i was just wondering if the whole different bridge for SP has been done before, and I think you've answered my question pretty well. Thanks again!
