Fix for Bigger Galaxy creates Smaller Map

Post by Gul Sea » Fri Nov 17, 2017 6:05 pm

Hey hope someone can help me with this.

I used UE to make the vanilla galaxy a little bigger but that had the result of making the galaxy grid map view very small.

I searched through the forum and tried using the QD resolution patcher but it didn't work. (I suspect I'm missing something)

I'd appreciate if someone would outline a step by step on how to fix this. Thanks.

Apologies if this bump is against BOTF etiquette, but some help would be gratefully received.

Thanks Thunderchero

I first tried the following:
1) installed vanilla using the all in 1 installer
2) patched with Flocke's mpr++ installer
3) went to c drive and extracted the stbof.res to a folder
4) launched bofrespatch-20111119-w32, selected he stbof.res folder and ran the patch
5) launched UE and amended the galaxy dimensions
6) launched game - bigger galaxy but small map.

I then uninstalled vanilla and tried a second time
1) installed error correction mod 1366 (my laptop supports 1366)
2) went to c drive and extracted the stbof.res to a folder
3) launched bofrespatch-20111119-w32, selected he stbof.res folder and ran the patch
4) launched UE and amended the galaxy dimensions
5) launched game - bigger galaxy but small map.

I prefer to play vanilla with the bof patcher's patches and bug fixes applied, along with Flocke's mpr++ and some tweaks to ship stats.

If you need anymore info let me know.

try this order

1) installed vanilla using the all in 1 installer (the resolution you want)
2) launched UE and amended the galaxy dimensions
3) went to c drive and extracted the stbof.res to a folder
4) launched bofrespatch-20111119-w32, selected the stbof.res folder and select trek.exe (enter resolution you installed by all in one) run the patch
5) patched with Flocke's mpr++ installer (800 x 600 version)

It worked! Thanks Thunderchero for your help. It's amazing to finally have a bigger galaxy to play with.

I noticed a few others over the years have posted with the same problem as me. Perhaps you could add an extra section on the bigger galaxy tutorial page? https://www.armadafleetcommand.com/botf ... ial-for-ue
