I liked the first 1 but not the others but this is set in TNG Universe so it should be better then the others but what do you think?

If it's in the TNG time, then I would think it would be better than the first two. I would suggest you check out some screenshots and maybe even a demo if there is one before you decide.

I'm getting it, I own SFC1 and SFC2, I dont play them that often but I think they are really fun. SFC3 is, well, different, it just is. The screenshots look great, and the weapon and crew system I think seems really good.

I was wondering about the release date because Carlos already made a mod for it and I was wondering how on earth he did it since it's not out yet, but that's one of those different release dates for different continents things.

BTW, Happy 2500th post Scooter

first, I looked for anything I could edit
then I found a file called
DefaultCore.txt
which is where you can edit the amount of mass available for each system
I opened it as a delimited text file using tabs (opened in Microsoft Excel)
and edited it
and thats how I made my mod
you can get my mod here

I'm sure you'll get some arguments from a couple of people here who think that BC isn't easy to mod. I havent had any trouble getting used to modding SFC1+2, I hope (once I've completed the whole game), I'll get people's mods working fine.
