[COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]I've isolated a number of ships I like. I want to create custom categories so I can access a team of my favorite ships easily.

But I don't know how to do this.

Here is a list of how I plan to organize the ships. [/COLOR] Alliance Faction:[COLOR=Black] Type 8 Armed Shuttle (Fed). Type 9 Armed Shuttle (Fed). Type 10 Armed Shuttle (Fed). Type 11 Armed Shuttle (Fed). Type 18 Armed Shuttle (Fed). Danube Refit Class (Fed). Delta Flyer (Fed). 8472 Bioship. [/COLOR][/COLOR][COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]DanielJackson class (Asgard)[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]Valhalla class (Asgard)[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]Beliskner class (Asgard)[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]O┬┤Neill class (Asgard)[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]Aurora class (Ancient)[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]Ancient Warship (Ancient)[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=Black] Borg Enhanced Voyager (Fed). Intrepid Class II (Fed). Borg Killer Voyager (Fed).[/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black] [COLOR=Red]Klingon:[/COLOR] B'Rel class. Raptor Refit. K-18. K-32. K'Vort class. Vor'Cha Class. Negh'Var. Quv class. And any other cool Klingon vessels. Borg Faction An assortment of Borg vessels, but only the sphere from Trek Battles II. [COLOR=DarkOrange]Cardassian:[/COLOR] Hideki Telcar Kimal Galor Hutet Dominion: Bugship or Attack Ship Attack Cruiser Battlecruiser Battleship Goa'Uld: [COLOR=Red]Deathglider (doesn't exist).[/COLOR] Alkesh Anubis Flagship (I may remove this from the List) A Hatak, haven't chosen which one yet.

Wraith: [COLOR=Red]Wraith Dart (doesn't exist). Wraith Cruiser (doesn't exist). [/COLOR]Hiveship. [/COLOR][/COLOR][COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black] Ori: Ori Warship.[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black]I'm not sure what the Basestar is, so don't know where to place it.[/COLOR][/COLOR] [COLOR=DeepSkyBlue][COLOR=Black] Also, I wish to modify certain aspects of the existing ships.

I want to add the shields of O'Neill 1.1 to the 8472 Bioship.

I also want to add the Ori Beam weapon to the Ancient Warship. And I still want the "drones" to be available. Can this be done? Is it possible to have two beam weapons?

I would also replace the shields of the Ancient ships with the O'Neill 1.1 shields. I would also transfer them to the newer types of Asgard vessel.

But how do I do any of this?

[COLOR=Red]I haven't found any tutorials on how to do any of this![/COLOR] [/COLOR][/COLOR]

Have you merged Trek Battles 2 and Alliance with some other mods on Legacy Files? Lol..you just installed Trek Battles on Alliance? The weapons should work, because I kept the sprites from Alliance in TB, but the races in Trek Battles use different names than in Alliance. The easiest way to do this is probably this one: Open the file Dynamic_Localized_Strings_EN.xml in your Legacy Install and search for this: BORG COLLECTIVEVULCANVULCANFEDERATIONKLINGONUninhabitedROMULANDOMINIONTERRANCARDASSIANMISCELLANEOUSBREEN Then change >BORG COLLECTIVE<, >VULCAN<, ETC. to whatever you want. and edit the ships race correctly. eg.: If you want the Type 11 shuttle to be a part of the >Alliance Fraction< you do not have to change anything, if you changed FEDERATION to Alliance Fraction because the game thinks it is the federation, but displays it as Alliance Fraction. If your ship shall be a part of the Goa'Uld and you changed ROMULAN to Goa'Uld you have to edit the Goa'Uld ship's odf: race = romulan You can also create a new race, but that's difficult to do and even more difficult to explain.

Thanks for telling me.

Actually, I want to put my favorite Star Trek and Stargate Ships together in a group of their own, for easy access.

Then I was going to put the enemies in seperate categories, so I could test various combinations of ships against specific enemies (Asgard vs Goa'Uld for example).

Okay, I've been playing around with creating a new "race" for my Alliance ships.

I think I've done everything necessary, but I'm still don't see my "new" race appearring ingame.

It still lists the four standard ones. If what I did worked, I should see five, the new one being my list (well, at the moment, there's only one vessel in there) of favorite ships.

No matter how hard it is, I want to learn how to create these custom lists. Once I learn how it's done, it should be easy to implement the rest of the categories I need.

For the sake of my "experiment", I created a category called AJBships.

So far, it only contains the 8472 bioship.

I'll try to list the files I modified: Dynamic_Localized_Strings_EN.xml odf\other\8472.odf (not sure if I modded this one) odf\other\AJBShips.odf (added this file as a modified version of misc.odf-which contained the bioship). odf\other\races.odf (added AJBships as 7 =) odf\ships\Bioship.odf (added powerful shields).

I must be missing something if my new category is not appearing.

Thanks again for helping me out.
