Slightly cooler than a n00b
12th December 2005
I'm playing the tng mega mod and have - to my absolute amazement! - noticed this: one time I was setting up my ships to play the wolf 359 in sp, but I've accidentally chose starbase assault instead, which I hadn't noticed until the mission has loaded up.
So what I did was choose all 6 possible ships to fed ships on my own side.
What happened when the miision loaded was that in the distance I saw the fed starbase I was supposed to assault, but in front of it there were 6 borg assimilators arrayed in a drawn out battle line!!!
I was gonna fight a 6 on 6 battle for the first time ever in sp skirmish in sfc3, I couldn't believe that it was happening! ince then I've experimented a little and had nother mission where some rakellian and dominion frigates / light cruisers appeared instead of the borg.
What I'd like to know is: - does this appear in vanilla sfc3, - is it possible to mod heavier or even better random class and model enemy ships to appear - and could this effect be used in any way to figure out how to unlock the 3 ship limit, to get more ships in your and enemy fleets in sp campaigns.
That is if anyone is still modding sfc3 at all...
