Ucce 2.0 - Engstrom Carrier Cannot Launch Probes

Recommended Posts

At first I must say that after installing UCCE I patched it to 2.0 using upgrade patch.

Then I saw a couple of problems :

1. There is no engstrom carrier in appendix, looking at creation dates of files in this folder I saw that it isn't updated at all - all docs are from release 1.x.x.

2. When I started a new commander career (roam) with Engstrom carrier I noticed that I cant launch probes at all. I must say that Launch Control was On-line, and all officers were on-station, and probes were loaded in proper slots at CC (they were marked with green at tacops, and there was "launch" option when I clicked right mouse button at them at tacops). I tried to launch probes (1 to 6) at two locations - Earth and Mars with no success.

I noticed also that this problem does not exist when I play commander career with Battlecriuser MK3 carrier.

I don't know if there are planned new patches for UCCE 2.0 or this is last, final patch, but I have hope that it isn't last patch, because I really would like play Engstrom carrier with full funcionality as other carriers in this version. :)

Confirmed, you can't launch probes using the Engstrom.

The model didn't have the tags. Since that model originated from GCES-SE which does not have player controlled cap ships, that tag was not needed. Download this KB090808 update, extract into the game install folder, overwriting the pre-existing version when prompted. Let me know if that works. If it does I'll add to the online KB.

Just tested it, works like a charm. Thanks Derek!
