Hey, guys

I have installed countless ships, each working fine and operating beautifully in battle.

The downside?

One of these vessels has brought into the game a very annoying breed of torpedo. These 'DucatPhotons' (named after the Cardassian, perhaps?) are damned annoying, horribly square-shaped and soundless. Sure, they pack a punch, but seeing them come from every stock ship, modified, retextured or standard, is just plain frustrating!

I know people who have complained about these weapons. Does anyone know how to remove them, e.g. modifying the weapons folder?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Gridley out.

go into your Scripts/tactical/projectiles folder scroll down till you find the torpedos named:

PhotonTorpedo2.py PhotonTorpedo2.pyc

delete these.

Then copy any other photon torpedo py and pyc in this folder and paste it to your desktop.

then rename these to the ones you just deleted and drop these back in the projectiles folder.

Awesome!

Thanks svinyl, the problem's fixed. I have the CG Sovereign photons on all stock ship classes now. Latinum wouldn't express my thanks enough.

I had that problem when I first installed the game and tried some new ships. The problem went away only after I removed those ships, so I suggest that when you add ships, you make a record of the files you added, add one ship at a time, and backup the files you replace. That makes it easier to return to your former configuration. It seemed to me that almost every ship I added changed something unexpectedly, so I just added the Enemies of Life expansion packs and nothing else and I have not noticed any more square torpedoes.
