Docking Capital Ship

Hi everyone,

I found a mod that allows me to start the game with Trent wearing various outfits, up to 250,000 credits, and of course, any ship that I want. I've experimented with Bretonian Cruisers, Kusari Cruisers and gunboats, and right now I have a LIberty Cruiser. One problem tho...I can't get past the first mission. The docking ring on Planet Pittsburg won't let me land, saying "Acknowledged, your request to land is denied. We cannot service ships of your size." And that's where i'm at. Can someone please let me know if there's a way to land my ship and continue with the game?

Post Wed Jul 28, 2004 12:38 pm

Ummm...the name of the mod is "Chip's Storyline mod (with choices)"

I tried the mooring fixture, but it said "Cannot Dock". Any other suggestions?

You will have to look in the MSgames/data/ships.ini file to find the ship that is yours and make a change. Sample below
ids_name = 237035
ids_info = 66573
ids_info1 = 66574
ids_info2 = 66608
ids_info3 = 66575
ship_class = 2
nickname = li_freighter
LODranges = 0, 80, 120, 200, 300, 1200
msg_id_prefix = gcs_refer_shiparch_Libf
mission_property = can_use_large_moors ; change to this can_use_berths
DA_archetype = ships\liberty\li_freighter\li_freighter.cmp
material_library = ships\liberty\li_playerships.mat
material_library = fx\envmapbasic.mat
envmap_material = envmapbasic
cockpit = cockpits\liberty\l_freighter.ini
pilot_mesh = generic_pilot
nanobot_limit = 12
shield_battery_limit = 12
mass = 300.000000
linear_drag = 1.000000
hold_size = 80
fuse = intermed_damage_smallship01, 0.000000, 400
fuse = intermed_damage_smallship02, 0.000000, 200
fuse = intermed_damage_smallship03, 0.000000, 100
max_bank_angle = 15
camera_offset = 8, 45
camera_angular_acceleration = 0.035000
camera_horizontal_turn_angle = 20
camera_vertical_turn_up_angle = 5
camera_vertical_turn_down_angle = 20
camera_turn_look_ahead_slerp_amount = 1.000000
hit_pts = 1600

If your not into modding the info, remeber, not all moors are for large ships.

I am guessing by now some other person has already answeared ur question but just in case.
If you have the freelancer mod manager activate the ghost docking mod (it should be there already as it is a default) This just means all space stations and docking rings accept u in but when the docking clip starts with a station u may need to press escape.

I hope this helps

hmm...for some reason none of the posted suggestions have worked...i would have thought the ghost docking ring would have taken care of it, but even that's not working....

get a new ship, problem solved

Post Wed Aug 04, 2004 8:36 am

You may have to be content with docking with a moor instead.

How do I dock my Osiris with other battleships? I tell it to dock and it kinda circles it untill i fail the mission for not docking.
