my next question would be have you tried to reinstall. did you close any command prompt during install? if any command prompt is closed before it completes will cause errors.

Reinstallation is a success. It allows me to start and play the game. I have to wait to proceed (click my mouse) until cinematics load, though. Otherwise, I get a blinking overlay of, say, the Microprose loading screen on every further screen I see.

Thanks for your quick reply and help :)

edit the stbof.ini (this would need to be done to each install)

MOVIEON=ON
to
MOVIEON=OFF

this will skip video and should help.

Hi folks! I've just discovered this mod pack and it is in danger of taking over my and my friend's lives. Looking forward to having a crack at multiplayer with said friend once he's more familiar with the new buildings and ships.

In the meantime, I've been kicking names and taking butts as the Klingons. I've just had the Xepolites sign up to the winning team, but I've encountered the same bug that's been mentioned a few times. I came here looking for a solution.

I also noticed this, to correct this you need to replace model to correct phaser slot.

I'm afraid I'm not familiar enough with the mods to follow this advice. Could a technically-minded forum member kindly walk me through this (or direct me to a page with instructions)? Do I need to download anything extra to be able to replace models? Thanks very much in advance,

-Nick

first thing download UE (Ultimate editor)

next review basic ship replacement from Here

next download this UDM ship pack

if you understood the tutorial you should be able to import the Xepolite Scout "M14" (in ship pack Xindi aquatic ship "I71")

good luck

with team play you work together to take control of 75% of the map?

When I build more ships than I have dilithium none of my ships build. i.e. not like the vanilla game where 1 of you ships would build while the others are delayed a turn.

But in UM5 no system produces a ship, I had to manually remove ships from the build queue to get something built.

Is this how it supposed to be or is it a bug?

more than likely Dafedz applied the Phantom-Dilithium Bug (fix)

One small suggestion: Improve the stats to the Daystrom Institute to make it useful. As it is currently, there's no real reason to build it.


Consider that Subatomic Simulators give you 7% boost to research, cost only 750 industry to build, requires only 80 energy to run, and can be built in any system. In contrast, the Daystrom Institute bestows only a 6% research boost, costs 3450 industry to build, requires 100 energy to run, and can be built only once. When you look at the numbers, it just doesn't make much sense to build the latter.

Perhaps the DI could return to something closer to its vanilla version, where it bestows a large bonus to computer research (and maybe a small morale bonus to the system in which it's constructed)? I don't know. It needs to be improved in some way, though, as otherwise it's pretty much a useless structure on the Feds' building roster.

hi Martok,

I would think the Subatomic Simulators would be % local research (8), while Daystrom Institute would be % empire wide research (9). Both are set to % research empire-wide (9)

but not sure if Dafedz added code to fix for Extending Edifbnft.bst (new building types/bonuses) for proper local and other types
