I don't think there is. Some other people have asked this question, and others like it. When it comes to things like how many ships in skirmish mode can there be, or if it's possible to import weapons, that stuff is hard coded into the game's program itself. Then again I could be wrong. If you don't get an answer here, try asking on the Taldren forums. If there is a way, you'll have better chances finding it there.

I think there is; in MetaAssets\ServerProfiles\SinglePlayer\MissionMatching.gf, there is an entry as follows:

[INDENT][EngagementMisc] MaxPlayersInEngagement = 6 // Max # of players that can engage each other at one time (will change to 8)[/INDENT] If this can be increased to say, 12, or even 24, then you might be able to bring full-size fleets into battle. I haven't tried it myself yet, though, so I can give you no guarantees.

N.B. I believe weapons are hardcoded so you can't import new ones but you can modify existing ones.

That doesnt work, changing [EngagementMisc] MaxPlayersInEngagement = 6 // Max # of players that can engage each other at one time (will change to 8)

As I thought its hardcodec into the program, the game was never intended to have large fleet battles.
