You can get into the prog just using C++ pro - you just need to accept that you can only view one facet of the program at a time. I can't remember off the top of my head the route in but will dig through my notes and let you know when I get a chance...

For interest: weapons stats are in assets/common settings/weapon items

you can rename weapons and make description changes in assets/specs/strings (not neccessary in the assets/strings/strings)

To rename a weapon just look about the first (has to be only changed THERE) announcement for weapons in the strings file: there are the weapons listed row for row...

... Phaser XIIIF Pulse Phaser Disruptor I (klingon) Disruptor IF Disruptor II Disruptor IIF ... Disruptor I (romulan) ...

simply change for example this way and it will appear in battle screening:

... Phaser XIIIF Pulse Phaser Pulse Disruptor I (klingon) ... Disruptor Beam I (romulan) ...

The changings are only visible in the battle screening but not in the shipmodification screen. If I found out about how the last one works I'll tell you!

To alter the description of any eqipment (including weapons) just go down in the strings file and you'll see the original one's. Simply change it!

Enjoy!

And please: Anyone tell ME which file is necessary to change weapon effects aso - I mean that most weapons had to be a much lower reload time!

I believe that is hardcoded

The only things you can change are... Cost, Mass, Health, Energy, Damage, and Race
