I've made a map for my game on which the Cardassians have territory, but every time I use that map for a conquest campaign I get the attached message. I have a freighter, frigate, destroyer, light cruiser, heavy cruiser, battlecruiser, and dreadnaught installed on the game for them, as well as starbases, planets, shipyards, etc. Any help would be appreciated

found your problem.. it's quite easy to fix, but it will require you to remake the map from scratch. In the Definations text file, you have Cardassians listed as the race name. Take the S off the end, as the game will only recognize Cardassian as a race name. The defination file is embedded into the map when you save it, so it will require you to make a new map with the fixed definations and all shall be fixed.

Don't remake the map!! I've had maps work when I edited the race name in there, open the map in wordpad and search for Cardassians, then change it accordingly....

now that's just getting out of hand. you know how bad you can screw it up if you do that without using the editor?

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try both of them as I've got nothing else to do for the next three weeks, while I recover from surgery. But I bow to the both of you and your modding skills.:bows::bows:

Never had a problem..... I've only ever changed the Race name manually....
