Excellent gamestarts there.

Just a question though, i assume the ATF Captain / Admiral gamestarts have no way of gaining new ATF ships since the gamestarts dont come with a ATF shipyard?

Appart from Capping them, no. (Although there is a mod for ATF shipyard).
These are just gamestarts rather than scipts to change the game style... that can be done with other mods/scripts

I am having trouble getting my computer to extract the file from the zipped form. I am sure it is operator error but i have vista and i am not sure that i have a program that will work. :? :(

This is my first mod i have ever tried to install so thanks in advance for your patience.

Thanks!
John

Go into windows explorer.
Click on the directory you put the zip in.
click the [-] next to the directory name to expand the directory.
click on the zip name.
the contents show on the right of the screen
pull the contents of the right side to where it needs to go on the left.

Thanks Apricotslice, I don't have Vista and never seen it in action so all I could suggest was "right-click and extract" or d/l something like Winrar/7-zip...

XP's windows explorer works much the same way. The contents of a zip is viewable and extractable as if the zip was a subdirectory. You just need to know how to use explorer.

Personally I use winzip, as that allows me to zip up packages so that they unzip without any other attention. Rar doesnt store the pathnames, or create directories as it unpacks.

The secret to zipping up game mods/packs, is to use a usbstick, copy the directories to the stick, then zip off the stick, with the subdirectory include option ticked. This packs everything ready to be unpacked into the TC directory, and on unzipping, creates any sub directories that dont already exist. Everything then goes straight into its correct place. Saves the user with no pc knowledge a lot of trouble.

The link for this file is apparently dead. Is there another link?

I've uploaded it to my download site.

Edit :
The file name is slightly changed, with X3TC-Snowship on the front.

Also, its merged into the merge mod.

Awesome, just what I needed.

Do bounty hunters come after you in any of these starts? I've never known if this was something based on the start or not, as even when you're on bad terms with Paranid in "Unholy Traitor", no bounty hunters come after you.
