I think IGard has about 150...
I confess to starting out with a few more.
I have resorted to having characters only with primary races... the Republic, CIS, HUTTS, criminals...
I am actually preparing to test again in a couple of minutes... I have another question I want to put out though...

After doing a search through the forums, Erik confirmed that there was no limit on characters or character images. I saw where you were trying to assign characters to the non-playable races, and I'd be willing to bet that is what caused the issue.


No, I did not do that; I was warned not to, so I did not try that.
It is time to try the old tried and true method... add one character file at a time and see where it blows up.



Typo maybe? And with all those characters in the list, it could be very hard to find. That's what usually happens to me.

Yup, that is probably it. And I am thinking that it is it...

Well, since I have found the errors to my character files, I am probably going to add a couple of more.

But I still do not know what I will do about the ship files...
I have many from IGard, a couple from Haree and Lord Xorn, and a couple that I modified from some others...
What I am thinking about doing is taking all the ships I personally was involved in and putting them into a file for other people to use as they wish... I do not want to step on toes...
I do not particularly care for SW ships, not as cool looking as ST ships...

Anyway, I should have something for you all soon.

Ahem! Who needs cool when you can vaporize the surface of a planet with one ship? I'll take my huge, well armed Star Destroyers thank you.

On a side note through, you would probably like the Marauder Corvette, it has a ST look to it....that is it looks a lot like a Ferengi Marauder.

TJ, if you need to use any of my ships, don't hesitate. If you want them to look different, you can always play around with colours. Or do some cut and paste (move wings, engines etc).

IGard, now I see why you clustered all your characters early. I have been trying to test, but the [enemy] characters really have not been showing up.
Darth Maul stopped by but failed to get whatever he was after from my empire, and a bounty hunter managed to steal a territory map from me... but I have not really seen any character activity so far. I need to tweak their appearance.
And if they are not assassinated, the characters do seem to live a long time... and that is good.

The bad thing about clustering them from the start is the governor problem I mentioned in the main forum. They tend to stay put, so if you give 4 governors at start, you end up with 4 governors on the AI homeworld.

Spies, Admirals and Generals tend to fair a bit better though.

That's a good point Shark. I don't think I clustered anymore than 1 governor at the start, but I might have to check on that. After playing the Picard mod for a short time, I came to realise that it needed certain characters to make it feel more Trek. And that's probably the case with most mods that have lots of iconic characters. These guys have to be in there early or else they might never make an appearance in shorter games.

However, there has to also be enough characters to last the player deep into long running games. Still not sure if I've got it right!

I have not messed with governors a lot. I have a few in the Empire, but not many otherwise.
I did give a few to Black Sun (as it was a crime syndicate, and I wanted the governors to be sort of like Vigos (or mafia fathers).

I take it that you heard that Disney bought LucasFilm... a 4 Billion dollar purchase...

And they did promise a new film...

I need to check out one or two more things and then I can upload.
I still have not figured out how I am going to do it yet... I am thinking I will just upload the ships I created, this way I do not step on anyone's toes

Now I'd like a Thrawn Trilogy mod...also an Old Republic (Sith Wars) mod too.

I just want them to finish Clone Wars up WELL, not leave us hanging...

Old Republic MMMO game looks pretty sharp... a little violent, but a reasonable story line from what I can see.

From left to right...

Republic Frigate --- CIS Destroyer --- a bomber for a home made race -- a frieghter
Cobbled together carrier --- Asteroid small base --- Arc Hammer --- Cobbled together carrier 2

The frieghter is the hull of a DW frieghter and Harees BSG frieghter
Cobbled together Carrier 2 belongs to someone elses mod, but that ship was asymetric. I made a ship by pasting two symmetric parts together...






Hehe, I spy an Avro Vulcan.

Do like the asteroid base though, its quite interesting. In fact would be quite interesting to set that as the default pirate base...hmmm. I feel the need to mod again.

I have two asteroid bases; you are welcome to both of them. PM me and I will send you both.

Sorry, I do love the Vulcan Bomber. There was a very cool video on the last Vulcan mission during the Falkland Islands war. I think that Vulcan bomber is a really cool bird. I wish Harpoon had modelled that instead of the Victor tanker.

As you can see there is a little Lord Xorn, some IGard, some Ed, and a couple of other folks who had some nice stuff.

As I have a ministry that keeps me busy, I cannot work on it as quick as or as often as I would like. I could just throw it out there and anyone who wants some SW stuff can use it as they wish...
If the Community would like that.

For a guy who is no expert, you are SPOT ON.

Some of them are just made up characters.
Some of the are Old Republic to fill out the gaps...

The Rebels are the Mechnoids, and when the Shakturi/Empire shows up later in the game, I kind of hold that as the Fall of the Republic and the Beginning of the Empire, and I set the bias tables so that these two ahve a very high affinity so they in effect become one.

So you are right!

These are all my original ships.
I cannot guarentee they are all ones I personally hunted for, but I think they are.
You will find ships modified, specifically several IGard, and there is another carrier that is a mod from another person's ship.

You will find a mix of Classic BSG, SW, SW CW, ST, and some home grown stuff.
If you want to know where a specific ship came from OR what faction OR want me to zip up a whole set, let me know.
I have many Romulan ships as well, but there are in the 'other' folder.

For those of you looking for SW character images:

http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3253685

I should have put them in my own thread.
If I knew of an easy way to do so, I woud...
Anyway: enjoy...
