Just a suggestion, please make the capital ship's name in the entity file to CAPTIALSHIP_(ship name)
You know Mooster, you have amazing timing. I didn't see this post before I started working on it, but when I went to post my "tweaks" I saw your suggestion right there asking for something like what I was submitting (call it lucky timing I guess).
nice, but what is in the gameinfo file?
The gameinfo file contains all of the changes I made to the indiviual races, (instructions for where they draw their ship names and their AInames from). Without these all the changes I made to the english STR file (i.e. the new ship names and the AI names for the races), would be useless, because the original mod riles for the player races don't point them to the right strings.
Hope that makes sense.
