Hi, im brand new to Fleet Ops; i have tried changing a few of the maps on the game, and have managed to get the derelict ships on the map that i want, and transport my crew onboard, however i am unable to control, move or do anything with these ships?

Can anyone help me?

Thanks

That sounds like those derelicts belong to Team 0 - Team 0 ships are neutral, owned by the map, and cannot be captured. Try using a team that is one higher than the last playable team (i.e. if there are 5 spots on the map, derelicts should belong to team 6).  :thumbsup:

Worked a treat, im so so pleased with this game!!! i think that it is everything that Armada 2 wasn't!! Im looking and giving a donation as soon as my work bonus comes through! At first i thought i was going to not like this as much as it had no warp feature, however i think that this adds to the authenticity of the game!! I also was at first alittle disappointed that when capturing a construction ship or station the designs for that unit are not  accessable to the player; but after reflection realised that the crew or captain would most likely wipe the database to stop their technology from falling into the wrong hands. However the Borg want and like being able to assimilate the technology of other races.

it's not in game yet. it is planned for a future version.

these are the current fed mixed tech units. the okinawa may possibly join them.

the guide reference to the okinawa is in the background section, which details the fleetops storyline stuff.

Cool sorry to ask so many questions, lol what about the campaign i have read about on the FO Guide? is this for later versions?

Much later, there's still a lot of plans for multiplayer to get through before it's started.

feel free to ask as many questions as you want, new players don't become good if they lurk in silence. :)

With the adding of Derelict ships on maps, i've got it to work, except for 8 player maps? you cant set the player of the derelict to 9?

Team 0 is the 9th slot.

I thought that the Team 0 belong to the map? this hasn't worked for me in the past?

they are, but that's your only option on an 8 player map. so you cant have an 8 player map where derelicts can be stolen by players.

i'm pretty sure if you put a unit on a team that has a player, then when the game starts it will get wiped.

Yeah, the first problem i had was that the ships disappeared when the map loaded, then when i sorted that i could board the ships and stations (they were set to 0 at this point) and my crew was on them, however i had no control over them what so ever! LOL Also the Unity One station, i can not use its Special Abilities, even though i have Given it Energy for its specials?
