Re: new modem, all ports open... Win7 does not work, Vista d

I don't know the answer, but something somewhat similar to has been happening to me - drives me crazy. The guys I play with and I with have 6 different computers that we use to play BOTF over lan - 3 of them (running vista) can join with each other and another (running XP). The other two (XP and W7)...

Re: Commands in tactical combat

This is simply fantastic, great work! I was wondering though, is it possible to make it so ships using the solo hold command can target an enemy ship, rather than using the ai to decide the target? Thanks! is it possible to make it so ships using the solo hold command can target an enemy ship, rathe...

Yeah, if a race's worlds have 0 pop, the race dies after the first turn.

Great for mulitplayer when you don't want the pesky (=crappy) ai meddling.

Too bad :(. Like you say, with bigger galaxies it would be nice to have larger influence. Especially since intercept is so important for forcing engagements.

Sphere of Influence

I have two questions that hopefully someone can answer: I was wondering if anyone ever figured out how to increase the sphere of influence generated by planets and outposts? I couldn't find it in the general modding index, so I'm guessing not - but hey, you never know! Also, is it possible to deacti...

this only applies to vanilla models and he suggested that all (a,b,c gifs) be 256 any way as joker recommended, maybe on different post? thunderchero Ok, makes sense. Could the few 128x128 textures be a problem then, or is the 256x256 limit the only consideration? As for noting the crashes - the us...

i am quite sure udm3 is not compatible with hades. i haven't checked it's textures to be sure, but just by examining other ppl posts and general info about the mod, i guess it simply wasn't made with respect to 256x256 hades limit. bop has the same issue - there are a few textures that require scal...

Tethys/Peter - I think you misunderstood me. The issue wasn't making the changes to the edifice file, but rather somehow UE kept reverting back to the non-hex edited version of the file. Not a big deal though, I switched computers and the issue was resolved. I do have another issue now though. When ...

Something strange..

Ok, this is a great discovery and I am eager to implement it, but I have a strange problem. I followed the directions you gave, Peter and the first time everything went fine when I added 5 more wind turbines, using UDM III as a base. They showed up as expected in UE and I could edit them. However, e...

Fantastic, it worked perfectly! Thank you very much for your help! Being able to make changes like these really helps breath new life into an old game. You've already been a big help, but if you don't mind, I am curious how the operation works. Is it dividing the industry by three or something like ...
