I've been playing SoA2 and just noticed that my fleet supply size doesn't seem to change whether I choose "Small, Medium, or Large Fleet Size" in the options menu. I currently have my settings on Large Fleet Size. However, the maximum supply that I have is only 2000. Shouldn't it be at 2500? Because of this I tried another map on Small Fleet Size and checked the Fleet Research and saw that the maximum supply is also set at 2000. Is this because of the SoA2 mod?
I would like to play with more capital ships and larger fleet sizes. I tried changing the FleetSupplyData in the GameInfo/Gameplay.constants but it doesn't seem to do anything. Anyone here know what files I can modify to change this?
Sure. You just need to modify the "RESEARCHSUBJECT_MAXSHIPSLOTSPSI0" entities, where is says "ShipMaxSlots" change the perLevelValue to which ever number suits you, as this indicates how many ship slots will be added to the next upgrade. Adding 50 for example to each research level for a race will give you a max fleet capacity of 2400. If you've got the machine to handle such numbers add as much as you like. Incidentally all the races are used for the Star Trek mod i.e. Psi represents Dominion and Federation, Tech is Klingon and Phase is Romulan so you'd need to update all 8 enitities for each race, numbered 0-7, to keep things even for all races. You would use the same method for the capital ship research grouped together above the entities just mentioned. Of course you would probably need to be more conservative with the number increase here To modify these binary entities I recommend using this excellent sins editor

Hey Shimmer, had a good go with the new update and I'm finding the Dominion alot more formidable , also that's an evil little ship you put in the pirates base there. Was too distracted with the borg cube to realise what was really popping my ships left, right and center . However, I was wondering if you were thinking of changing the Enslaver ship stats still. Only because I tend to think that this ship is more like a titan rather than your average capital . It's just that for it's size it doesn't feel like a MoFo capital like it should. I do realise though that every race has to have one uber battleship including the dominion (although they have both the Devastator and the Enslaver) otherwise there will be balancing problems.
Anyway's, looking forward to your next news update. All the best.
