at legacy.filefront, there were mods like ass. galaxy, sov. and voyager and other borg incoporated ships. logically speaking, shouldn't these ships be in the borg section? can anyone tell me how to transfer ships assim. fed. or other ships to the borg section? thx ppl

just to make it clearer, i would like to know how to put ships into different races

ex. assim. galaxy from feds to borg

thx

in addition, does anyone know how to change designated ship types? for example, there was this intrepid mod called the borg-destroyer. in the game, it also had the title borg-destroyer. does anyone know how to change that as well> thx ppl and have a nice day

Nick, what you want to do is simple, and there's a quickndirty way to doing this. Open up the odf file of the ship you wanna change. In this case I'll open a file called "Constitution 3." (Personally, it's a favorite of mine.) :) At the top or near the top, you should see something called "General Stuff." //********************************************************************** // GENERAL STUFF... //********************************************************************** // Name of Ship class in Ship Display window & in edit mode & tooltip unitName = "Constitution 3" // Tooltips tooltip = "constitutionclass_refit" verboseTooltip = "constitutionclass_refit_v" // Race which can build ship & starting race of ship race = "federation" If I can call your attention to the part that says, race = "federation" Simply change that line to whatever you want the race to be, in this case, the Borg. It would read as such: race = "borg" MAKE SURE THE RACENAME IS IN lowercase!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or else the ship won't show up ingame, which is a very bad thing. Hope this helps, and happy "modding."

Not correct you do what he says and the game will give you an error. The biggest problem with making non borg ships is that the physics of non borg races cannot be assigned to a borg ship, at least for now. I say for now because the game does it but how it does I don't know because the ODFs for the assimilated klingon ships is not very helpful.

thx ppl for your help. i think i get it, but... ludwig, u said that all i have to do was change the designated race in that file, but jrumann59 stated that the physics of the selected race won't work? kind of lost there (but i have a vague understanding of wht's been presented). JBessinger00, just to clarify, did u just give me the method to change the ship designations in the game and how to select ship races> kind of confused on that...sry, not a brilliant modder. i need some help on a few more issues, so pplz, if u have some spare time, could u contact me @ [email]NicholasNg1992@homtail.com[/email]? thx ppl, realli appreciate it/

The ship physics files don't have anything to do with the ship ODF itself. I've got an entire dominion alliance side that uses edited stock federation ship odfs as their base
