Ah--it does require modding. Thanks guys...that does clear it up. I thought you could simply add the Star Base Constructor and Envoy ship in like any other with a map template.
I created a campaign style map with vanilla Sins and halfway through it, Entrenchment came out. So I retooled and then Diplomacy was released. As a result, I added to player positions for the AI so that Diplomatic considerations would be in play--but I didn't want two AI's butting in militarily into what is meant as a two player campaign.
So the AIs have no ship building capability. They have pre-poistioned fleets and structures at dead asteroids and no colonizers. I wanted to allow them a ship to create a Star Base and a flet of Envoys.
My goal is to make a mod but I first wanted a stand alone map that can be played in any mod or version. if people like the map scenario, then they can jump to the mod if they want.
