The only thing I have an issue with in this mod, is the replacement GUI for the federation.
I don't know what it is, but all the gradiented buttons and interface bit are odd looking, the old ones were superior to the ones with UDM
Other than that, it's a great mod.

It takes some getting used to but I like it now, makes the game feel a little more modernized!
Don't let your reach exceed your grasp! :mad:

I had the same issue and we're not alone as others have said same.

It's fairly easy to resolve if you want to return to original Federation GUI.

You need to extract all Fed graphic files from a Vanilla STBOF.RES and copy them into the UDM3 STBOF.RES.

Ship stats are taking longer than I thought, but are almost ready. But still need to make many adjustment after that.

I like the Vor'cha and Dominion fighter. Does this mean we'll see future ship models? Perhaps a new vanilla BOTF with new Ferengi ship models?

Also, I cloned a Galaxy Class in UDM III to make a Command Cruiser II but it will crash the game unless I delete another ship. Is the shiplist maxed out in UDM III? Can it be extended even more?

there is only one ferengi ship in UDMIII so no new ships for ferengi.

not sure how you "cloned" ship file. But UE does this without error. You might want to check UE settings to make sure you are editing correct stbof.res and trek.exe. And copy ship in shipstats. and save if asked save trek.exe.

"shiplist" yes max is 255 I think. And at current version is 150 now (next version 180) :wink:
"phaser slots" 3 slot left. after that only way would be with sharing slots can more models be added.
"palettes" not maxed out but only 6-7 left This could be edited with combining palettes.

not sure how you "cloned" ship file.
When I say cloned, I mean I selected the ship and then clicked on the "create a copy" button.

This is great news! You've really kept BOTF alive. There we're some days I never imagined this was possible but I always had hope! :D

I agree, UDM is definitely the thing that brought me back to BOFT after many, many years.
However I am a little surprised there will be even more ships in this mod.
Won't this overcrowd the shiplist of the "big five "even further?

You can never have too many ships IMO.

In fact, I just downloaded and tried out All The Ages. Very nice mod with some very nice ship models. Maybe some of those models such as the original Constitution Class and new Galaxy-X model could me incorporated into UDM III.

We will soon start testing the new UDM version MrD, and I pray hope it won't overcrowd the shiplist. Keep tuned friends, the way is already paved.

I remember when BOTF first came out I said to myself, great game but GD who forgot the Excelsior, Miranda Class, and half the other ships out there rofl.

But now we have the UDM crew to thank for saving BOTF!
