As the title of this thread is asking, has anyone managed this yet?? I've been hunting through some of the file in an attempt to find a file which controls the campaign ship additions. It was thought that the construction build dates may have had something to do with it, but after adding to ships using almost completely stock ODF files neither ship appears. Anyway, the question stands although I'm going to keep looking.

That is not quite what he meant, the mod you have mentioned is a registry alteration, with a new odf.

What exactly do you mean? Adding ships to the player selection screen or for the AI to use?

Adding ships to the selection screen. I checked that suggested mod, but after adding my ship to it and changing the starting date it had no effect.

You have to remove your db.pak file or rebuild it. It has all of the odf files in it so any changes you make won't work.

You've probably done that already though??

Information from Armada II .odf files seem to not make ships seen even when you put the key information in. It is best to copy an existing ship from Legacy and add the relevant information in... like ship name etc.

The only thing I can think of is that you have not recompiled the db.pak or that you have missed this from the odfs, which I doubt;

// Race which can build ship & starting race of ship race = "federation"

You can also set where in the selection list your ship appears, say for example its an Excelsior Dominion War Refit, automatically that would come in near to the Galaxy Class, you could set it to appear next to the Nova for example. In the odf/other folder there is a file called "ef_tng_comba" which controls the order ships appear in.

The e files are relevant to the editor. The order of the ships is defined by class and then command points.

You could be correct, but it also altered the order of my ships.
