File Description

This is the replacement for the SFC3_RDescription: This mod makes the AI ships more challenging, making battle more tactical. Shields are better, and you can mount more weapons. Other subtle changes to add to the realism. This is in zip form, so you'll want a program like WinZip, or WinRar. Windows XP/2000 can extract zip files as well.

What this does and why I did it: It makes all four of the major races have better ships, more true to the TV series. All shields are stronger, regenerate a little faster, and item mass settings have been tweaked. I found it foolish that most ships would have many of their weapon hardpoints empty. Why would Starfleet not equip phasers on all the emitters? Why would Klingons not want more firepower on their ships? Why would Romulans equip Warbirds with type 2 cloaks and Level 3 armor? That's just asking someone "please squash me like an insect once I cloak" Nonsense! I fixed this, and changed the default loadouts of all the ships. Thus making the AI more challenging without having to make variants for all the ships and reselecting them after every skirmish, and resupplying your ships with marines and shuttles.. One word. Tedious. All ships now start fully supplied with mine/marines/shuttles. You can get a weapon in every hardpoint, provided you don't choose the best weapon and put it everywhere, of course. Making battles more fun, and more tactical. Subtle changes in weapon damages and warp core power output, alot of little things here and there to make it all more realistic. Cloaking ships aren't so ignorant in their cloak usage. I noticed they would often cloak right in front of me, letting me hold my torpedoes until that moment. Made them dreadfully simple to defeat. They are much better about that now.ealism_Mod2 there was a problem with it and this is the replacement

Starfleet Command III Realism Mod by Shane Withers

Release #2a

Description: This mod makes the AI ships more challenging, making battle more tactical. Shields are better, and you can mount more weapons. Other subtle changes to add to the realism. This is in zip form, so you'll want a program like WinZip, or WinRar. Windows XP/2000 can extract zip files as well.

All shields are stronger, regenerate a little faster, and item mass settings have been tweaked. I found it foolish that most ships would have 
many of their weapon hardpoints empty. Why would Starfleet not equip phasers on all the emitters? Why would Klingons not want more firepower 
on their ships? Why would Romulans equip Warbirds with type 2 cloaks and Level 3 armor? That's just asking someone "please squash me like an insect once I cloak" Nonsense! I fixed this, and changed the default loadouts of all the ships. Thus making the AI more challenging without having to make variants for all
the ships and reselecting them after every skirmish, and resupplying your ships with marines and shuttles.. One word. Tedious. All ships now start fully supplied with mine/marines/shuttles. You can get a weapon in every hardpoint, provided you don't choose the best weapon and put it everywhere, of course. Making battles more fun, and more tactical.

Requirements: Unmodded Beta Patch 1.01 (this will most likely NOT be compatible with any other mod)


--MAKE A BACKUP OF THE ORIGINALS BEFORE OVERWRITING THEM!--
Make a backup of all files in your Sfc3\Assets\CommonSetting and Sfc3\Assets\Specs folders.
I just make a folder called Backup and copy-paste them there. Works fine.
If you are copying over my first release of this, then go ahead and overwrite them. There will be no problems. (Just don't accidently overwrite your originals by backing up release 1 files) 


Note: Any savegames saved without this mod (an earlier release, or the original game) will not reflect the changes this mod creates.
I have not tested this mod with the single player campaign, while I forsee now problems - it will likely be more challenging.



Installation: Simply extract the zip into your Sfc3 directory with use folder names and overwrite existing files on. It should put all the files where they belong. If you don't have Winzip (and you don't feel like going to www.winzip.com to download it) and are just using the generic zip viewer with windows, I don't know if it'll do the pathing for you. In any case, here is where each file goes.

It's very simple, there is only seven files you need to mess with. 


All files that have the extension .gf (should be five of them) go in to Sfc3\Assets\CommonSettings
All files that have the extension .txt (should be two of them) go in to Sfc3\Assets\Specs


To "uninstall" this mod, simply copy the originals over them. And everything be fine.


Although I can see no possible way, I will not be responsible for any damages, directly or indirectly, as a result of you using this mod.
If you have any questions, reccomendations, or bug reports please E-Mail me at: BoogieMan1980@yahoo.com
I would like to hear any feedback you have, and about your experiences with this mod.


If you downloaded this file from anywhere other than www.SFC3Files.com please E-mail me and let me know. The reason for this is that I will
continue working on this mod and I don't want to track down all the places this is available to submit the update. If you want to host this on your site simply E-mail me. Also do not include this on any form of compilation to be distributed without E-Mailing me first. If you don't do this, you might get stuck with an outdated version. Please do not modify this file or any files contained within the zip in any way. Please don't use or distribute my e-mail address for spamming and other unsolicited E-mail. This address is for gaming related E-mails. Nothing else. Less than a day after creating this E-mail account I received junk mail. And I hadn't even gave it out to anyone yet. I really don't want any more.
