Hello new guy here on the board.

After years of playing and loving BOTF, I have decided to try some of the mods. So I downloaded the all in one. Per instructions, I deleted my old BOTF, and tried doing and Install. However, It is telling my I already have all of the Mods in the "All in One" installed. Yet I have never downloaded any sort of download prior to this attempt. Right now I am re downloading the file, thinking I might have had a corrupt download. If this does not work, does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you very much.
Woah, is this THE rowskid86? 31stSquad.com/WVPS rowskid? Dude! We should play some BoTF sometime. Mike and I are actually resurrecting 31st

Hello, after years of BOTF, I discovered that the mods work with Win10 and I´m overjoyous :D Thank you for keeping one of my favorite games alive!

I have a question in regards to large space battles in tactical mode.
I play on a large irregular map, Romulans and the AI Dom is attacking with 500 ships, I have half that much and every time I want to switch to the tactical view, the game crashes. Screen switches back to desktop and the game ends.It works fine when I just click on "auto". My PC should be fast enough - 32gb ram, nvidia GeForce GTX 980 ti. I experimented with the GPU settings but it doesn´t get better than default. How can I get this to work?

Other than that, I´m loving the mod. It´s my first game since 2014 and I already have 120 planets, work on 3 mio credits and want to build 1000 Reman Warbirds. Even the AI is not that stupid. Feds have many Cruisers and Dreadnoughts that seem very strong against my Heavy Battlebirds II. Dom still builds many escort ships but the sheer size of their fleets is awe inspiring.

Is there a way to make huge battles in tactical mode work?

Hey man, glad you're enjoying the mod.

I may consider reinstalling for a game actually, I had a notification in my email about your post.

Aye, unfortunate that the battle you want to do just seems too big, system specs won't matter I think it's just the age of the game... Maybe thunderchero can shed some insight though !

Thanks for the fast reply! This mod with it´s huge maps and changes to the vanilla game, really enables giant empires with hundreds or thousands of ships. I´m 300 turns in and I´m sure that battles with 1k-2k ships are possible. It´s like a wet dream, tbh :)

I´m glad that almost everything works (just this one crash) and am a little bit afraid of reinstalling it.

I think I may have to install it later today

How is the AI behaving ? Is it a challenge?

I remember I just used to stomp all over the AI

Perhaps I should start lower tech than them 👍

Aye I got an instant notification in email that you posted haha

unfortunately there is nothing that can be done. the largest combat I have ever completed was something like 300 vs 300 and that is rare.

btw Hi Dissy, and I doubt if you will like the updated version, slightly smaller maps and starting system come fully loaded with structures.

Hi guys, good to know that I don´t have to reinstall. Battles on auto are working fine. The AI on impossible is ok. It´s ability to build enormous amounts of ships is much higher than it´s tactical capabilities though. I´m always starting on tech 5 for everyone and I could have won at turn 150 but that´s not my goal. I want to build a huge empire, explore the behavior of the AI and generate some interesting storyline (in my head^^). The most clever seem to be the Fed because they don´t rush in with small ships like the Dom and can challange my fleet for pure battle strength. Sadly the AI doesn´t really know what to do with it´s fleets and underestimates it´s strength. Atm Dom and Fed have an alliance and can´t decide between war and peace with me. I could get the Fed to it´s knees with sabotage but restrain myself. All other races (except for minors) are extinct. I have half of the map colonized and want to stay there and let the AI build it´s part of the map until some huge battle when everything is maxed out.

That is the main thing is to "have fun"

if you have another big battle upload the saved game and I will take a look at it (zip file first), but doubt if there is any thing that I will be able to do

Here is the save game, thunderecho and thanks for taking a look :) It´s no zip file though, should I do something else?

I am now at turn 350 and the game runs stable but didn´t have any more major battles yet.

Hm, it should be the right save game file, turn 319 right before the big battle. Save game 11 is the one that I have to load ingame, so I thought it should be the right file. What do you get with that file? Thanks again for your help :)

I did not test it, from your reply I thought it was later in game.

I will take a look at it.
