Hi, first off let me say what a great forum this look :) ok I have just installed STBC for the 1st time but from looking through this forum it looks like the game would be 10x better with mods - however.... I have no idea what mods to get or how to install them or in what order and do they only improve the game when doing battles or does it also improve SP mode? so if there is anyone out there who is willing to help me I would be very greatful. P.S - I have installed the BC patch 1.1 already Thank you in advance. Neutron

First off this should be in the help forum, but i forgive you.
You need to install BCMI 4.4 or whatever the new version is, you need to get WinRar or something like that....
oh, just try this instead: http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/info/mod_install_tut
oh shoud it? sorry i didnt see a help bit oops. ok i did what that tutorial said but now what? - is there anything else i shoud install so it makes the game better - i mean 2 ships cant be all there is lol
NO there si quit a bit of ships but once you learn how to use BCMI and BCMP the are very easy to install. GO to downloads and ships at bcfiles.com . Umm I recemend getting the mod http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/BC_Expansion_Deluxe_Compiled_Version;25575 because it is being played more often online and requires no skills to install. It is well rounded with alot of ships any way just download any ship you want and add them into game. P.S. once you add any ship you cant play on the 1.1 servers. Anyway FEDHELL out.
ok i get that - but is there more than just ships? i mean is there missons etc i can get etc
you can get missions together with the new QuickBattle 2.3 also avaible on bcfiles. Download it and then look through the files area here: http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/files/ Keep looking for new ships and also ships/mods in the top ten, there are a lot custom scripts and game enhancements as well as new ships, bridges (even totally new ones) and other stuff like sounds and backgrounds, textures...I hope you have a bit time, there is so much to explore here...
Lol pille i never knew you still played BC. Ok let me think of something so i am not "spamming" Umm yes that mod I linked you to changed some things eg new shields. It is very cool and u can usually find an online game in it. Ok FEDHELLL out
Moved to help forum.
There are mods to change almost everything - bridge crew textures/bodies/voices, bridge textures/models/ships, sound/special fx, ship textures/weapons/types/hardpoints/models, maps, backgrounds, starfields, special abilities. There are things added in that recode the general environment of the game - mutators, mutator scrollers, menu additions, ship classification submenus, ATP dimensions will go further by the looks of things. And lots more I can't be bothered to even think of at the moment! Quite a few new missions were posted recently.
ok thank you for all your help - ive been exploring and getting the ones i like - :D - so i think thats it for now :D
