There has got to be somebody out there who has found out how to change one of the files in order to get more than six ships in skirmish mode, right? Because I mean, come on, I'd really like to battle more than five other ships.
Yeah, we all would. But, as far as we know, there IS NO WAY. there have been a ton of threads demanding a way to get more than 6 vessels in Skirmish. But, the general consensus is that this is impossible.
One more thing: try the "fleetpick" utility at SFC3files.com. It is under the utilties section.
well if u want it so bad u can pay a coder to do it but it will be a wast. in my view.

Never could figure that thing out, but I'll try tinkering with it. Thanks guys!:D
I'll post back if I figure anything else out. Probably won't, but it can't hurt to try (unless I screw up my game, and have to reinstall,[with all the mods I combined into one BIG mod], I would not be happy). Then it actually would hurt.
A funny thing happened when I played the "starbase assault" in skirmish mode last night. I chose 6 ships to be on the same side and attack the base en-mass so to speak. What happened was when I got to the "battle-map" was there were 6 ships defending the starbase! This was a surprise to say the least, and I must say that the 6 vs 6 + starbase was a blast!!!! I destroyed the starbase before my last ship was lost though, so that was good. :)
I have no idea if this was a fluke or a undiscovered feture to the game, but maybe the fact that I am using the latest of "the dominion wars" mods has something to do with it. All 6 defending ships seemed to random choices made by the game itself as I didn't choose them thats for sure, and looked to made up of the "dominion" race (sice the mod replaces the borg race with them) as there was two orion pirate ships, a dominion battleship, and a species 8472 warship in the mix (I can't remember what the other ships were though). I am going to try again tonight, but I thought you all might want to know about this possible feature to the game (IE: Choose 1-6 ships to be on one team, and perhaps the game will give you random oponents to fight against). I'm wondering also if this does work, will it only work in "starbase assault" mode?
Wish me luck, and peace...........................

First, don't! Make a separate install, and mess up that one. Second, tell us how you made them all one BIG mod.:D
I simply installed Dominion Wars to the game like normal, but I also installed the Neutral Zone, X-pack, Project Armada 2, and an SFC2 TOS mod to dummy locations. I copied the models I wanted to my game location from the dummy locations (With DOMWars), and copied thier spec lines from the dummy location into my game spec files. Then I simply deleted what was left in the dummy places. Simple. Takes a long time to load, but seems well worth it. This method should work with any combination of mods.
Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to get more than 6 vessels in Skirmish :(
Well that's basically what I'm doin' with my Generations at War mod.:D Hey! How about each of us send an email to Activision asking them for a patch that would update this feature.:deal: It's alot better than just sittin' here doing dittaly-squat. Anybody know how their email address? It's worth a try.:D
