Sorry guys, my sense of humor is a bit off at 5 am or so after being up for 24 hours strait. To much coffee and no sleep make Atrocities a bit cynical.

Regarding the computer using extra components despite the restrictions. Well I would rather it used SIF than have an extra engine or two. The AI has to fill up space I guess to I will make the SIF have a tonage of 5 instead of 0. That should fix the problem if not, oh well, an issue for another time.

Thanks TNZ t hat is very helpful info. Very helpful.

Thanks TNZ, but when I tried this simular idea for the AST mod, it caused a lot of problems. One could not research other colony technology and was stuck with what they started the game with. But I will give it a shot.

I have completed the 8472 and Borg facilities.

I added the DefaultDesignTypes and DefaultColonyTypes from the FQM 2.4 to the Data folder.
I would like to add the latest Version of the USM to the mod as well. *DONE*
I have also added the latest Version of CNC Star Trek Systems names to the mod.

I also replaced the Carrier and Fighters types in the VehicleSize.txt file. They are under Advanced Ship Construction. I reduce the size of the fighters and tweaked the carriers a bit. The light carrier is smaller and faster, while the other two slow down as the size increases and hold a little bit more. I re-included them because some players like this options, although I do not, and I will make the Advanced Ship Construction a removeable technology. It will include Fighters and Carriers.

I have added both the Definant Escort and the Klingon BOP (Bird Of Pray) mounts to thw CompEnhancment.txt file.

The rest of the file will remain as defualt for now. We can always add more mounts later.

I have finished the Dominion, Federation and Ferengi facilities.

I have only the Klingon, Romulan, and Tholian left to do.

I will take on the research.txt's again and try and get them to work better.

Hey AT,

I tried doing a "STNG" interface for SEIV awhile back, but gave up for sheer frustration (the way the game screen uses and divides up the display frame BMPs is enough to give one nightmares ). However, one thing I did manage to do is change the graphic for the race/planet data buttons from SEIV font to STNG Monitor font. Interested?

A lot of people care. It's just that we are so anxiously awaiting this mod that we do not wish to bother you very much because this mean you would reply and when you reply you aren't doing the mod which in turn means we have to wait longer to kick some Borg circuits.
So by acting like we do not care we show that we care

(damn i should have become a lawyer )

[de-lurk]

I'm looking forward to the mod my friend. I was willing to put up cash to help the great and magnanamous Kwok out on that Hard Drive problem, and must say that I'm downright tickled that someone else is willing and able to step in and work with him on an updated ST mod considering the heartache of the lost work. Cheers, my hat's off to you.

Secondly, before I re-lurk... would it be possible to make a special weapon and/or mount just for the Galaxy Class? I remember that the Collameter (sp) ring phaser was able to track while firing and split up it's beam to shoot at multiple targets, etc. I was just wondering if the special weapon/mount could be called a "collameter section". Putting several of these sections together would allow the weapon to fire "multiple times". Also, I think it would be cool if the weapon had the PDF ability (but not necessarily the targetting bonus) versus all ship and unit types (basically against all incoming objects... including ships).

Just my thoughts
