Hi Everyone,

The 20th Anniversary of the release of Birth of the Federation is now less than 2 months away "May 25 2019" it is gratuitous that it also falls on Saturday.

I propose we gather on GameRanger for quick multi-player games and reminiscing about our favorite game.

I will try to be on GameRanger as much as I can that day and night and hope to see you there.

Re: Supremacy new release

Been awhile since I played. How are you handling terraforming? Had this idea: So colony ships create small-capacity colonies on other planets, So regardless, a system without an M-class can be colonised (important for the next bit) Then in the system screen, you 'build' a terraforming/expansion proj...

I managed to make it delete individual files, as opposed to all of them :up:
Haha, when you say "all of them", is that "everything on the C: drive" ?

favoured outpost/starbase deployment

okay, so on NBUL's large galaxy, the galaxy is 77x39... Now, I like to have a starbase as 'region headquarters', with outposts built around it, but with this 77x39, the spacings not exactly squared. This is my 'outline' of how I place my starbases and outpost - to note, that's 16 outposts, and 1 sta...

Re: Ultimate Editor

Not a programmer (any hex editing I did in the past was basically following instructions here) so I dont know how to say properly, but is there <something> that the patcher does that renders UE unable to create a new exe or whatever it is its trying to do when it...

Re: Ultimate Editor

It's not read only, and don't have "run as admin" option for UE. Edit: other trek.exe's work, but its doing it when trying to modify the exe for the No Building Upgrade mod Large - normal NBU is fine. (tested via just adjusting a galaxy generation value so UE will try to save. It's the trek.tmp file...

Re: Help! Losing an enormous amount of credits per turn

Hit a number value limit? Like if upgrade costs are above a certain amount the game sees a negative value?
