I was wondering if anyone could give me advice on how to increase a ship's tactical strength on Bridge Commander.

I just downloaded Kobyashi Maru, and it's a fantastic mod! In my opinion, some of the ships are under-rated. The most being the Galaxy. I got my butt whopped by a Dominion Battlecruiser, and the Defiant nearly gave me a run for my money.:eek: The Galaxy class is ALOT stronger than that. It is on the same level as as the Sovereign.

The Galaxy in the mod is REALLY weak.

uhh no its not.... the Galaxy is the way it should be.

A Galaxy class, can't fight the big dom ships one on one... you need a fleet of at least 3 ships. The defiant well it's the defiant with its pulse phasers it can eat through the shields of almost any ship. And no the Galaxy is not as powerful as a sov.

If you edit your HP's for the ships you would never be able to play MP games. But if you don't want to play MP games just use the MPE to edit the ship hp in scripts\ships\hardpoints.

Model Property Editor. download "BCSDK" from BCfiles and take a look at other mods, so you can have an idea about how it works A MPE tutorial is such a post and shouldn't be treated here. Browse the forums for it.

BTW, Neb if I copy my actual BC install over a clean BC in another computer, can I play MP?

LATER IDEA SPARK: If I make a dedicated server with just one modded copy of BC, and redirect the shortcuts in each computer to the server? should it work?

no, you have to have EXACTLY the same hp etc, cuz if your sovvie would have hull hitpoints 99999999999999999 for ex. and someone elses 3000 that would'nt be fair so the game does not allow it:(

but BC has the option to set a dedicated server (i think) may be if I initiate the shorcut in the server, say: "Target": "\\server\c\programfiles\bcroot\bc.exe" "Start in": "\\server\c\programfiles\bcroot\" Dunno, just dreaming awake....
