Lock Re: Help with mod please.

First off, I got it working. The game crashed from having too many allies being made available.

-- Well first off, I am just some regular shmoe with no modding experience. Having said that, I am making the scale a lot bigger. I have added about 40 generic ships so far, about 20 unique (were allies until this error) ships. A bunch of planets. Several quests that I always thought about when I was playing other sci-fi games.

I am a terrible artist, so I use a lot of the games resources with little tweaks like hue and what not.

The biggest thing I have done is all statistical. I felt like battle were over a lot quicker than they needed to be, and that some races, like the Tan-ru, weren't as deadly as I think they would actually be. I have tweaked every item/ship in the game in addition to adding all my own. I have big plans for it, but it's really just for my own satisfaction.

I came across that site on google a couple days ago and it pointed me in the right direction but it could be a lot more specific. Thank you though.
