Hello people.
So I've been modding armada 2, and ran into trouble when modding the borg.
I'm trying to make the borg cube be able to build things, but can't get it to work.
I'm using ArMod 2 to change things.
I can make the ships have any weapon I want and even make them bigger or smaller, but I can't make the cube able to build things! Others have, so how do I do so?

You need to edit the Borg Cube ODF File, I'm going to assume you're modding Armada II "proper" and not FleetOps for modding that is harder.

You're going to want to include the const.odf file instead of battle.odf but this will make the Borg Cube a pure construction ship and not a battleship anymore.

You can do this as well:

Under Tara Additions For Context Sensitive Menus add:
builder_ship = 1 (this opens up the access to the build menu)

There's some more to it though, like you could copy the building coding from the bconst.odf file. I'm not near my computer right now but if you want you can state what you want the Cube to build and I could set up the ODF file for you and test it later tonight and send you it.

Yeah, I'm modding just star trek armada 2.
Actually I tried modding fleet operations, and found it much harder to mod!
I'm not very good with coding, I just use an editor I found.
I am very good with moving files around and using tools that others have made, just can't make them myself.
Now, I downloaded a borg cube mod where not only does it have all it's weapons, but it can build things as well!
I was hoping to create my own version like that.
