I've been wanting to add a ship to STBC and I downloaded the modpackager and a ship to try..now it's my understanding I take the files from the ship, but them in the STBC main directory..then go into the modpackager...game tools, then I see the ship listed..select it.. then do the checker, and if it's all ok then click "make plugin" (selecting federation ships ect to put it in) It then says the ship has been created..I go to play, and it's not there? What am I doing wrong? I did a clean re-install of BC and the 1.1 patch after before doing..? any help appreciated! Thanks.. Cam

You are doing 2 things wrong. 1. You are not defining what the ship is called in the TGL section of BCMP. 2. You are using File Checker. Do not use File Checker!!! It doesnt work properly and disables most things in the game. Same goes with the 'Menu' option of BCMP. Repeat: DO NOT USE FILE CHECKER IN BCMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any other experienced player will tell you the same thing.

I'll take a stab at it. I'm not the expert on BCMP, but I do know how to add ships. First, you have to copy and paste the files into the Bridge Commander directory, just like you're installing other ships that don't use any mod pakagers. Then, open BCMP and click "Game Tools." "Ship Plugin" should be default, if it isn't, then click it. After that, scroll through the right-hand scroll thingy and find the ship you extracted into the BC directory and click it. Information shoudl appear when you click the .py file. Then, click the arrow in "Species" and select the one that the ship is for. Finally, click "Make Plugin" and a message should come up telling you the ship was added. If it ends up not being added, then that's over my head.
