Thanks Thunderchero,

I am using UCW large

It seems the romulans are invincible.
Their star bases destroy any size fleet in auto battle mode and manual unless H select Harry.
when i try to attack a system the population does not change on bombardment at all. the orbital batterys get destroyed though.
I have tried to edit the romulan buildings but UE gives me an error.

I do not have the same issues with other empires in the same game.

I did not have these issues in 1.0.1 that is whay i was hoping to go back to that.

thanks for your time.

as for editing you must use Edifice Patcher before and after editing due to the extended tech levels.

as for bombardment issues you had same issues before.

as for Romulan starbase stats are basically the same as other races starbases, romulans bases have weaker hull than most races.

UCW had so little interest it was never completed or even tested much and I have no plans to do any further editing.

the patcher will not work for me. it says error unzipping.

i did have the bobardment issues before. i think its some building giving crazy modifiers or something. that is why I was hoping to edit it.

i never nticed the starbase issue before.

i never had any of this on 1.0.1

thanks for your efforts. i will just try another mod.

when do you get error extracting files or when running patcher?

you need to select install path of mod you intend to edit then just select patch button

patcher is setup to change selections automatically.

for editing with UE it will have "reset to tech levels 0 - 10 (for UE)" selected
and for game play it will have "allow building structures at level" the tech level will set correctly automatically

note; you must close Edifice Patcher before editing with UE then re-open it to re-set

hi Team,

just wondering what happened to "TOOLS" with the All In One Installer?

under Component Install, it shows DxWnd followed by each of the various mods

but I guess the Tools pack, including Ultimate Editor, etc would need to be separately installed?

Recently downloaded, and then uninstalled because I didn't like 1920x1020 for it's HUD or 1024x768 because the display appears stretched on fullscreen. I reinstalled every mod for 1366x768 which I liked, but clicking was unresponsive and I obviously I couldn't play. At that resolution it never true fullscreen and behaved like a window.

I never messed with any of the Dxwnd settings so i have no clue why it work. Any ideas?

It sounds like your system/video card dose not support 1366 x 768 (not surprised)

here is how to check if your system support 1366 x 768

other option is to run 1366 x 768 in windowed mode.
