You can name fleets!
« on: February 19, 2003, 09:19:33 am »

This may fall under your "well duh" category, but if in super-melee you use the arrow keys to highlight the name of your fleet, then press return, you can enter a new fleet name.  It only took me 2 months of daily play to figure this out.   Embarrassed

Well duuuuuuuh.   Roll Eyes

I miss the clever names of the teams that came with the original SC2 PC game.  I think there were names like "Fred's Crew" or something like that, obviously a preferred battle group for his holiness, or just a group of guys given that name for fun.  I enjoy making new, unique battle fleets in SC2... and I think giving them names is one of the most gratifying parts in that whole process.  I especially love facing my Mizfits against the Behemoth Zenith...

Hey, now that I think about it... any really clever battle fleets anyone wants to share with us?  This might be a cool direction for this "duh"-filled post.

Ford's Fighters
Leyland's Lashers
The Gregorizers 200
Zenith of the Behemoths
Little Dudes with Attitudes

I think that was the total of the "special" teams from the original game Tongue

How do you delete fleets?
I accidentally saved an experimental fleet with a stupid name ("balanced fleet #2")

Just delete the file in which the fleet is saved. It should be called fleet name.mle. The fleet files are stored in different places on different systems. On my Linux installation, the fleets are in ~/.uqm/teams/.

As an additional clarification, on Windows, the fleets are stored in the directory uqm\teams in your settings directory. This is (quoted from the UQM manual):
Code:

- "C:\Windows\Application Data\"
 (Windows 95, 98, SE without seperate users)
- "C:\Windows\Profiles\YourName\Application Data\"
 (Windows 95/98/SE with seperate users)
- "C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Application Data\"
 (Windows NT/XP)
