We have ALL these ships in Star Trek that have what are OBVIOUSLY phaser cannons (I.E the Soyuz Class Miranda Refit) and yet MY game says that they only have ONE phaser bank? WTF? am I the only one who's noticed?

the number of "Phaser Banks" that the ship menu says it has is actually the number of primary weapons the ship can fire at once

So even though it's got three cannons, it can only fire one phaser at once? that sucks.

If You'll add "fireAllBanks = 1" to the weapon odf file , that weapon will fire from all assigned hardpoints even if in the game You'll see that the ship has "only one phser"

For example. You want two phasers working as one. In the odf file of Your ship You'll find something like this: (example from stock miranda) // roll-bar front phasers weapon[COLOR=seagreen]2[/COLOR] = "[COLOR=blue]fed_tos_phaser_2beam[/COLOR]" weaponHardpoints[COLOR=seagreen]2[/COLOR] = "hp06" // roll-bar front phasers weapon[COLOR=seagreen]3[/COLOR] = "[COLOR=blue]fed_tos_phaser_2beam[/COLOR]" weaponHardpoints[COLOR=seagreen]3[/COLOR] = "hp07" Remove the second weapon but add the "hp07" to the first one. After that it should look like this: // roll-bar front phasers weapon[COLOR=seagreen]2[/COLOR] = "[COLOR=blue]fed_tos_phaser_2beam[/COLOR]" weaponHardpoints[COLOR=seagreen]2[/COLOR] = "hp06" "hp07" [COLOR=red]Don't forget to change the nubers of the next systems. (those marked green)[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Now , as You can see this weapon will use two hardpoints but to make that wor You'll have to do something more.[/COLOR] The weapon uses [COLOR=blue]fed_tos_phaser_2beam.odf [/COLOR]placed in odf/weapons/Phasers folder. You should open that file and at the end add this line. [COLOR=blue]fireAllBanks = 1[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]This will tell the game that the weapon controlled by this odf file uses all available hardpoints at the same time. [/COLOR][COLOR=blue][COLOR=black]Normally Miranda uses two phaser banks (stock game) After this change the ship will still be firing from two weapons at once but one of them will be using two hardpoints. So in the menu the ship will still use two phasers but in the game it will be able to use three of them.[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]One more thing. If any other ship is using that file (fed_tos_phaser_2beam.odf) it will also be firing from all available hardpoints , so it's a good thing to copy/paste the file and change it's name. But You'll also have to change that name in the ships odf file.[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]I hope that now You'll know what to do.[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Sorry for my english.[/COLOR] [/COLOR]
