I read Green's guide and I did all the DC and DLO stuff and the ship won't appear (it also removes the Stock Negh'Var from being selected)!! (Spec File included, I had to write them from scratch...) It already has a model, I made the HPs but no glow textures, and other missing stuff....

Don't PM them, post them so other noobs can see and learn...... The errors I see are: Two Tabs between Klingon-cruiser2 andSuq'Jagh in the DefaultCore. Two tabs between Klingon and Klingon-cruiser2 in the DefaultLoadOut. Missing a third tab between SuQ'Jagh and DISRUPTOR-IIIF:1 in the DefaultLoadOut. The rest of the DefaultLoadOut is riddled with double tabs (Only one tab is needed to divide two items!).

I started to post them, but I thought it would be insulting.

I don't think so. There's nothing to be ashamed of. It's really easy for someone, even someone who knows what he's doing, to make mistakes in the specs. I'm sure that you and greenvalv have felt the same way I have before trying to find those stupid little mistakes when things don't go right.

I had to buy a new keyboard because my other one was too dented from me banging my head against it.

I've had plenty of those times. I remember not a month ago I thought I ruined my game adding in Species 8472. I typed something similar to this, :1:0:360, you can probably tell what's wrong with it right off, but try to find that bug in a whole shlew of arcs!

That's probably the single most common error made when typing in specs. I know I've done it more times than I can count.

I'm lucky I never banged my head on the keyboard...or I would have to pay my dad $3500 in damages to his laptop (thats where I run SFC 3)...it doesn't have Excel unless Wordpad can do lining up the lines good.......I usualy use Notepad (how stupid of me....), the zip file that came with the ship was bare minimum to mod with....so I decided to make the ship run in SFC 3, but I need permission to make the file public for SFC3files....how do I do that?...

Word Pad does line everything up in colums until you get to the weapon arcs, but it's pretty easy to keep things straight at that point. All of the information for one ship shows up on one line. It's not wrapped to the next line like in Notepad, which makes the specs a lot more organized. Did the zip file include a readme? If so, it probably had the author's email address. You can contact the author and ask for permission to post it. Who is the author anyway?
