I have tried to use BCMP to add ships I have followed directions over and over but then again I have found more than one set of directions just in this forun alone, the point is that every time I do it my game becomes un playable. when I start it I get a black screen that goes no where after trying to load a ship with BCMP. also I can't figure out how to edit ships that have a PY file and add replace the hardpoints in the game, every time I do the ship won't work can anyone help
To be honest it's easier to use notepad, as long as the ship you downloaded has a hardpoint file that is. Then all you do is copy a file so lets say galaxy.py in scripts/custom/ships. Then you open it and change everything that says galaxy to "yourship name" although if you dont have the ship's file in scripts/ships then that wont work. sorry i can install ships just explaining it is very hard.
John: try this ------------------------ BCMP\pluggins ------------------------------- by using BCMP you can make a Plugin for the ship. to make plugin Just start BCMP , click on the Icon (uptop) says 'GAME TOOLS' look a little to your right and down little (see the name.py) find the correct one for the ship example::: merchantman.py Click on it To the right is an item called QB Menu (click on it) Choose the QB Menu placement you want your ship to be in the game. (maybe "other ships" , or "Federation" , just where ever you want) example::: choose Other ship (MENU) for this (ship) Near the bottom is a button labeled MAKE PLUGGIN click it and there you go ======================================================================

never ever use BCMP's File Checker or Menus options! they will surely cause problems...
that did it thank you so much John H.
