Ships are very nice in looks with this mod. It also feels somewhat more consistent. Fortunately you seem to have cut the crashes As well. There are, however, a some things which I find to be serious turn-offs: 1. Massive battery defenses for systems. After you fight your way through the opponen't fl...

Ultimate Mod 4

:D This is a great mod. It is the most stable incarnation of the game yet (least crashes, patched vanilla included). It is a lot of fun, with opponent empires performing reasonably on hard setting. They gather realistic forces before commiting an attack. So far, ship balance is fine. Yet, I edited s...

And is it supposed to be unpatched or patche with Joker's? With Hades or is it within? With multipack or is it irrelevant? With official patch or with nothing? After a second attempt with the official patch (first was with Joker's) it still crashes. No pint in trying more. I'll check out the simpler...

The only thing I can say is the game with this mod crashes as soon as I start looking at ships in research. With either the second or third ship I click on. I have a quite competent computer and I believe the game crashes quite rarely in classic mode or with Ultimate Mod 2, for example. Ultimate mod...

I've only played for 2 hours, but also spent 3-4 hours playing with the mod/reading/thinking/editing. Pros: -more realism than vanilla, deeper feel; unfortuately can't get over the cons; but you are still working on it -ironically, powerful and especially resistant battleships are a pro as well as a...

I've often wondered what "builds special ships" means.

Hey.. does UDM3 require Standard for Modders? If so, how do you install it, because it has no readme. Place files in botf folder or stbof?

Actually, what is the optimum install? Joker english patch 1.02 + UDM3e + hotfix_f ?

Thanks for the attention :) I think you might try to encourage a new BOTF game and find a way to take part in creating the official game. It could be much better than modding (since I am looking at this, it is still very interesting as is). It would certainly become stable and ulock many things. For...

The game is running great now. I chose to play a game with cardassians. The Battleship is huge !(started with maximum tech) I can see that you used the points well, first ships were below the vanilla settings even before I made 50%. I also doubled ship build and maintenance for the playable races. I...

Unfortunately for me the game crashes in the ship list with or without editing the stats. I had barely entered to check out the ships and it crashed. Crash rate is 30 percent per ship select!!! Am I doing something wrong? The vanilla or UM3 only crashed in battles and with as many as 25 ships. Since...

I have a suggestion for the modders: try to scale down all the stats, including weapon numbers and damage. Test it. See the difference. I'm sure it has to be there somewhere :D Then do the same thing for ship costs & maintanance, fleets will be back to normal in case you now get 10 times the ships. ...

Wow, thanks for the large reply, matress_of_evil . I think I used some version of botFED in the past. Thanks for the links and the edit. I think I'll play a little with the editors just because it's fun. I'll be able to see all stats and think about them. While I'm at it, I think I'll triple ship co...

You should really scale down all stats proportionately to at least the general level of stats in vanilla BOTF. I strongly disagree. The larger stats seems to have no effect on me, and it makes battles last longer... A battle that would normally take 4 or 5 turns in vanilla now takes like 10 turns i...

I can see a fault!! Seeing the sovereign with 4800 shields reminds me of using the ship editor. The bigger the stats, the bigger the lag. You should really scale down all stats proportionately to at least the general level of stats in vanilla BOTF. That makes a huge impact on performace. You could e...

game crash, particularly in MP. most stable in MP is vanilla, i.e. unmodded. There is no mod that will is as stable in mp as vanilla. I was given the impression that hades, for example, was meant to improve stability and enhance graphics. I think I'll play UDM 3 which includes hades right after I f...
