I want to install a few of the ships. I am currently attempting to install the Steamrunner class but not sure how to do it. I followed the Read Me file instructions (which are pretty vague), but not sure exactly where to paste the selected files in (Specs) once I get into defaultcore.txt and defaultloadout.txt. I pasted the appropriate files after [begin], saved the file changes and attempted to play the game, but the game freezes once it begins to load. I had to remove those files for the gam e to work again. Can anyone e-mail me specific step-by-step instructions for installing a new ship download into my game? I presume other files other than the before mentioned need adjusted for the game to accept any new input. I would really appreciate it Thank you Jim Belongie [EMAIL="dragonwitch@comcast.net"]dragonwitch@comcast.net[/EMAIL] USA-Mountain Time PS Nemesis patch was recently installed and is working fine, but it did everything automatically. Also, do you have any information for beefing up current default ships in game so I can make the ships a little faster, better weapons, shields, etc..

Make sure you put the file in the right place. As you know there are diff. classes in the game. friget up to battleship. Look at the file you have and see if class matchs any of other ships in the game. If not change it to match what is closest to it. For the steamrunner I would use Fed-Crusier3. You should already have a Fed-Crusier and Fed-Crusier2, if not then use 2 in place of 3. Now in the defaultcore find Fed-crusier2. Go to the beginning of the next line and press enter. Now copy your defaultcore data for your ship. Make sure to change the class (it helps when your trying to give the ship names) and go down to the begining of the next line. Hit backspace one time to get rid of the blank line. Now go into defautloadout and put the data in for your ship again, but make sure it is in the same order, and have the same class type.
