Also, all the tools you need for modding are listed in the FAQ at the top of the Modding forum.

How Do I Save A Edit Ship To My Game.

you don't really 'save' it, you have to script it in.

And Also Can I Use The Ships I Edit On The Mutiplayer.

only if the host has 'exactly' the same modded ships as you.

And What Things Can I Edit On My Ships

anything if you get the right programs.

Okay Chancel, heres a quick reply to help ya out. In order to begin modding any ship you will first need the following. (Found on bcfiles.com)

1.1 Official Patch SDK Latest Foundation (download BCMP & BCMI, these are vital programs to have, they also contain the latest foundation)

The SDK is the main thing since it has a program called Model Property Editor (MPE) with it, thisallows you to load and edit any vessel, station, asteroid etc.

Anything can be changed, from impulse, shield strength and color, phaser strength/color, warp core power etc. The list goes on. There are various guides available that can help you out with modding, it would take too long to list everything that can be done. Have a look on bcfiles for the guide on how to edit using MPE.

Also I would like to describe a small thing that caused me to have problems when I 1st began to edit ships. If you look inside the "scripts/ships/hardpoints" folder you will notice a series of files that will probably have a .py or .pyc extention. (e.g. sovereign.py).

.py files are the ones that can be editied using MPE. .pyc files are the format that that the py files are converted into to allow Bridge Commander to use them in game. Therefore when you want to do any editing its a good idea to back up any files you dont want to lose. I wouldn't think you can easily edit ships 1st time round, you will always encounter small problems, but hopefully in time you will get the hang of it. Read the readme files also that come with the SDK for information on how to use MPE.

Good Luck

Dragon

thats one thing you can't do yet, you'll have to stick with the bubble shields.
