BoP is a great mod, but I am noticing one thing that seems a bit strange. In vanilla it seemed to me that the AI's were pretty good at conquering the minor races. But so far in my game as the Feds, I'm finding minor races all over the place that are still independent. In some cases they are totally...

Ah, great, that sounds like it will work. Thanks for the suggestion.

Sorry but you misunderstand. I am not trying to combine two different mods. I am trying to have two different installs of BOTF, each running a different mod. Please go back and reread my post. However, I have gone back and tried to clarify things since you didn't understand - I have two different in...

Multiple Mods Installation Question (BoP and UDM)

Ok, I've got something strange going on here. I wanted to try both Balance of Power and the Ultimate Dominion mod. So I installed the game, calling it "Birth of the Federation" and then installed Balance of Power. Played that some, everything was fine. Then I installed the game again, this time call...

Point taken....... I still prefer that minors can hold on to their autonomy for longer as seems to happen in BoP. Some players may not like this oddity as it did`nt usually occur in the vanilla version of the game. :) The problem is that it unbalances the game. Because so many minors stay independe...

I agree that some of the lesser minors would have had to submit to become members of one of the major powers or have been conquered...

In addition, the other four powers seem to better compete with the Alliance's ability to gobble up minor races (although the Feds & Ferengi still definitely have the advantage in this area). I'm not finding this to be true. I'm hoping Gowron can take another look at this. I'm finding minor races al...

I like most everything about this mod, other than the gigantic number of ships you can build. I understand what the designer was going for, but the game doesn't handle it well. Battles stall out in the tactical mode, and aren't easy to control due to the large number of ships. And managing multiple ...

I did find many minors in this latest game of mine had not been co-opted and had huge ground defences and loads of orbitals. In my opinion thats the way it would be in a galaxy at war unless you believe the Feds apple pie propaganda. Nope, most of these minors would have been conquered or have join...

Hmm, I'll also add that now that the ship building problem has been fixed, I'm free to focus on other problems with the game :( The diplomatic AI is horrible. The game seems programmed for all the AI's to eventually declare war on you no matter what. They break treaties at random, even if you do not...

Hmm, I didn't find it to be true in UDM. I just played a session today and all the empires had several minor races under their control. But there defnitely seems to be an issue with BoP.

However, by "slimming down" the shiplist(s), it essentially forces the AI to construct their best vessels -- you no longer see the other empires fielding fleets consisting of only destroyers and light cruisers. I'll happily admit that for me at least, that's worth sacrificing the more varied ship r...
