This is a modification of the original game Star Trek:Bridge Commander by 
Totally Games and Activision. Neither party has authorized this mod, and therefore 
bear no responsibility to any affect it may have on the game.  Buyer Beware!

This particular set is to install the new systems as new locations in QuickBattle 
mode.  They are high-end designs, so low-end users may need to tweak their 
configurations for best results.  These new systems are very small files, so future 
SystemPacks will include updated version of previous systems.

This Mod has two parts:
1) Installing New Systems; 
2) Adding to QuickBattle

IMPORTANT NOTE: Part 2 has two different ways of doing it. People who just 
want to install the system and move on, may use Option A. People who are 
comfortable editing Python scripts may use Option B.

=========================================

1) INSTALLING NEW SYSTEMS

1.1) Find your Bridge Commander directory, usually in Program Files / Activision

1.2) Find this folder:  Bridge Commander / scripts / Systems / 

1.3) Unzip all the new files into this folder. It should create new folders for the new systems.


========================================

2) ADDING TO QUICKBATTLE

####################
Option A (The Easy Way):
   2.A.1) Find this folder:  Bridge Commander / scripts / System / NewQuick

   2.A.2) Find this folder:  Bridge Commander / scripts / QuickBattle / 

   2.A.3) Copy the file "QuickBattle.py" from the NewQuick folder into the QuickBattle folder


########################
Option B (Programmers Only): (this uses Banzai system as its example; repeat for all new systems)
   2.B.1) Find this folder:  Bridge Commander / scripts / QuickBattle / 

   2.B.2) Edit this file "QuickBattle.py" 
   (If its not there, copy it from the NewQuick folder into the QuickBattle folder)
   
   2.B.3) Down by  line 264 (right after "Yiles"), add this after the final System entry in Group 2:
BANZAI			= 0x00000008

   2.B.4) Down by line 1893, add this before Beol's entry (include tabs, and should look like other entries):
		if iRegionsUnlocked1 & BANZAI:
			pChangeRegionMenu.AddChild(CreateRegionMenuButton("Banzai", ET_SELECT_REGION_TYPE, "Banzai1", g_pXO))


========================================

To play in any new system, simply start up Bridge Commander, and start a 
new Quick Battle. In the available systems, there should now be all new 
systems in the list.

SYSTEM NOTES
Bear in mind that there are huge distances between the planets, so it will 
take a while to get in-system. Even so, this is still "tiny" to what people 
may want for realism. Also, all the planets are aligned in their orbits, which 
doesn't happen very often, but makes it easier to get around! ;)

I have left the Pythons uncompiled, so others can use this as a template to 
modify.  More advanced systems are forthcoming, including orbiting 
stations, etc. 
Have fun!
