Star Trek Starfleet Command III Hints, Tips
- Repair Your Hull For Free
- This works in either Campaign Mode or Conquest Mode. You do not have to edit any gaming files to get this to work.
When you take hull damage during a mission, as soon as you are done with the mission go to a starbase/planet. Instead of going to Supply Dock to repair the hull, go to Refit. After you are on the Refit screen don't do anything, just click the ''Accept'' button on the bottom of the screen. This will take you back to the hex map, and your hull will be repaired! This is a good way to save prestige, especially on the harder difficulty modes.
- Extra prestige in single player.
- WARNING THIS CODE INVOLES THE EDITING OF GAME FILES! BACK UP FILES BEFORE USING THIS!
Step 1: Open up the sfc3 folder.
Step 2: Open up the Metaassets folder.
Step 3: Open up the ServerProfiles folder.
Step 4: Open up the singleplayer folder.
Step 5: Open up the Character file in word pad.
Step 6: Find the following lines.
// This is a character's starting prestige
StartingPrestige = 200
StartingPrestige = 100
StartingPrestige = 50
[Create/0] is the amount of funds you start with in Commander mode.
[Create/1] is the amount of fumds you start with in Captain mode.
[Create/2] is the amount of funds you start with in hard mode.
Select one of the lines and change the number to 999999.
Now save the file and start up the game.
Start a new single player game and select the mode you edited.
- Make all Items cheaper
- This method involves editing game files. Please make backups before you attempt.
To Make All items cheaper You need to open up C:/Program Files/Activision/SFC3/Assets/Common Settings You will see several files in this folder. ''BridgeItems.gf'' and so fourth Now use a text editer preferably notepad to open these .gf files you will see something similar to this inside.
Description = ''F-COMPUTER-I''
Cost = 500
Mass = 100
AntiCloak = 0
AntiCloakRating = 0
RangeIndex = 1
LockBonus = 0
Health = 10
Race = ''F''
Now you see where it says cost? Edit that and make it the price you want. Also you can edit the mass so your ship can hold more.
''F'' Stands for Federation ''K'' Stands for Klingon ''B'' Stands for Borg ''R'' stands for Romulan Edit the correct races files for desirable Results.
- Make Officers level up faster.
- BACK UP YOUR FILES BEFORE DOING THIS!
Open up the score file in your sfc3metaassetssingleplayer folder.

[SpecializedLevelUp] // The odds that an officer will level-up in a skill in his area after a mission is completed.
Basic = 1.0

- Start with any ship
- WARNING!!! This method requires the altering of game files!
Make a backup copy of the files mentioned before editing!!!
open your SFC3 folder, then MetaAssets folder, then ServerProfiles, then SinglePlayer, then open the ''character'' file with notepad. Scroll to the bottom, there you will see these
// Starting ships for players (sorted by RACE)
0 = ''Norway''
1 = ''K'Vort''

3 = ''Diamond''
Then edit the name of the ship, (ect. ''Galaxy'', ''Akira'', ''Cube'') Then save, when you start a new campaign, you will recieve whatever ship you typed in.
- Cloaks on FEDERATION ships
- This cheat involves editing game files, so BACKUP before using.
go to your SFC3 directory and go to assets/common settings/bridge items and find the line that reads
Description = ''R-CLOAK-V''
Cost = 2500
Mass = 50
CloakRating = 500
CloakCost = 10
Health = 50
Race = ''R''
Now just change the bit that says Race = ''R''
to read Race = ''FR''
Now you will be able to buy the best romulan cloak for any of your federation ships at the in-game refit screen, or add it to your default load out for the ship that you choose (but this is for advanced users only)
