i put sheilds armor 3 phasers and 2 photone tubes and it can go over 100 and turn over 1.03 but it will still fast i did it for the gen at war mod.
Cool! Now you can actually use them for support (ie fighters), much like in Dominion Wars! You should also make them playable. Do you know how to do that? Open up DefaultCore.txt that's located in (your Game Directory)/Assets/Specs, and find the line for shuttles. Change the SH to FF and the game will read them as Frigates (don't worry, you will still be able to use them as shuttles), and they should all be playable! You can also do this for frieghters, Bases, anything! Now, one more instruction: Have Fun!
yes i do and i do use them i had a fleet of shuttels setting out shuttels:D
The best way to make shuttles last longer is to change the class from SH to FF - then you can increase the BaseWeight - which will make the hull much stronger.
It's been in use in the Dominion Wars Mod for months now, was discovered by Cueball I think, near the end of '03.
It's fun to just play as a shuttle, without changing anything. Hellahard, though.
