File Description

This mod adds the Ferengi as a playable race :)

Clever story also:

Ever wonder what happened to all those ships the Ferengi have stolen? Well The Ferengi Salvage Team has been re-building them. They have waited in the shadows , Now with their fleet and some of the Armada ships. They have launched an Attack on the rest of the Armada World...and they didn't come to play...they came to destroy. The ferengi will never be looked at the same way again.

Excellent idea, and definetl y worth a download :)

I    Introduction

1) Storyline

Ever wonder what happened to all those ships the Ferengi have stolen? 
Well The Ferengi Salvage Team has been re-building them. They have 
waited in the shadows , Now with their fleet and some of the Armada 
ships. They have launched an Attack on the rest of the Armada 
World...and they didn't come to play...they came to destroy. 
The ferengi will never be looked at the same way again.

2) My story

I personally like this Mod more then the Andromeda Mod. I started to 
learn how to build buttons and wireframes on this Mod , so please 
tolerate the 'inperfect' artwork. The last time I check this Mod 
was 9Mb unzipped (it may grow as I piece together missing files 
in my final test). The reason why this 'complete' add-on Mod is 
small is because half of the ships in the Ferengi force are
stolen from the other races...which means you already have them.

This Mod of course will be compatable with the Dominion Mod
(from Dominion's Clan's Mod v 1.1) and my Andromeda Conversion Mod. I 
will have a few options so it won't matter if you do or don't have them. 
I can't guarantee the game will work if you mix it with other Mods. 
I heard about an automatic Mod loader. I don't know anything about this. 
Since I have options in this Mod I personally would advise against 
using it or use it at your own risk.


II     Installation Instructions

NOTE: Because this Mod has options , everyone (even Modders) will need to 
pay close attention here. I will have the standard folders that will 
have to be copied and pasted no matter what option you choose. 
Then you will have choose what option you want to finish and complete 
your installation.


1) Standard folders

a) Open all the odf, Ai , Sod , Sprites , techtree , bitmaps , sound , 
misc and tga folders until you come to the files , copy and paste them 
to your game in the same places. If it asks you to overwrite...it's ok , 
click yes(this is for all files in this mod. I had to re-write the other 
ferengi in the game).

Note: I used the old Klingon Battle Cry theme for the ferengi Mod ( it was an
option in the Andromeda Mod). I didn't have time to find anything else and it
seemed to go really well with it.

b) Copy events and dynamic_localized_strings
(in the main folder to the main folder).

*********************************************

2) The Optional folders


Note: you must choose one

a) I will list what the name of these folders are (just below). When 
you choose your folder you will open them until you get to the files, 
you must them copy and paste them to your odf/other folder (inside).

1) The WODWOA folder means: without Dominion and without Andromeda.
Choose this folder if you don't have them.

2) The WDWOA  folder means with Dominion and without Andromeda.
Choose this folder if you have Dominion but don't have Andromeda.

3) The WODWA folder means without Dominion and with Andromeda.
Choose this folder if you don't have Dominion but have Andromeda.

4) The WDWA folder means with the Dominion and with the Andromeda.
Choose this folder if you have both the Dominion and Andromeda.

Please be careful when selecting , they all look similar. The game may crash
upon loading if you choose the wrong one. Also they need to be used in the
above order. (ex. you can't choose with the Dominion ,then load mine then
later download the Dominion...unless you know how to edit certain files)


b) This one is purely optional , if your tired of the officier limit ,
copy and paste the RTS_CFG to your main folder. I set the officier
limit to 9999.  If not... Don't copy it.  

III      Misc. Information

Known bugs

1) The race icon in Admiral's log is not working . I held off 
releasing this Mod in the hopes that someone would help me with 
this problem , but nobody would or could help me  :( 
2) The Ferengi wireframes may not show damage to the ships. I'm still 
learning wireframes (sorry).

Here's some that are not bugs

1) The second shipyard 'builds' the ships outside. I thought it looked ugly 
having them come out of a solid shipyard...and these are suppose to be 
rebuilt ships not from scratch.
2) There is not many voices for the Ferengi. I decided they seem more evil 
with laughing most of the time. Plus I couldn't find good Ferengi sounds.
3) Not all the stolen ships are used. Sorry , from my point of view I 
didn't want to have 30+ ships on the Ferengi roster. The Ferengi's 
view point was the smaller ships would cost to much to fix so they 
used and sold them to fix the battleships.
4) I have 2 Federation ships and no species 8472 ships. Sorry , You 
can't beam aboard a species 8472 ship. At first I was going to say 
mind control , but I decided against it.
5) No research on the special weapons. Sorry , I've never been big on 
researching weapons. 
6) Some of the stolen ships don't have any special weapons. The 
Ferengi are not smart enough to get all the special weapons working. 


A final Note on running this Mod: It will not work with options such 
as free tech or capture the flag. Only standard tech in Instant Action.
(the basic)...and please restart your computer before running this Mod 
so everything settles in better.
