Hi All

I just downloaded the USS Premonition from sfc3files and have tried to install it but it isn't in the game. :( Please Help as the Premonition is my Favorite ship :)

PS: I copied the sovereigns lines in defaultcore.txt & defaultloadout.txt and changed the ship to Premonition but still no luck :mad:

When you copied the Sovereign's lines and changed the ship to Premonition, did you also change the part where it says Fed-Dreadnaught2 to something else like Fed-Cruiser3 or Fed-Dreadnaught3 or even Fed-Premonition in both the defaultcore and defaultloadout files?

Hmmm.....in the ship folder, the .mod files for both the ship and the break model must be exactly the same as the name of the ship. This also goes for the .gf file that contains the hardpoints, the text file that gives the ship description, and also the TI. VL, and BS images. You probably already know this, but can you confirm this is the case? If this is the case, then you might have to delete the ship folder from your game and delete the specs and start over again from scratch with the ship. Also, make sure the Prometheus is working in the game still.

I think I may have discovered a spec of gold, when I tried to start a single player skirmish the game crashed. I think this might be due to an error in the federation parts in the specs files which means that the game might be finding the ship partially! I need to try a few more things before I am sure. Any suggestions would be Helpful

PS: I'd try to put I in a campaign but when I install any new ship it doesn't load the campaign

Ok I got it working! But now I can't select any other races in a skirmish without the game crashing, Also In the Wolf359 scenario there are no borg! I have fixed this before with the Prometheus but I can't remember how to do it but I'll try a few things anyhow
