Cheat codes

Invincibility

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "config.cfg" file in the "\bethesda softworks\star trek legacy"directory. Locate the "cfg_SPPlayerDamageModifier" line and change its value to "0.00". Your Campaign mode fleet will no longer take damage from enemies or objects.

Extra command points

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "config.cfg" file in the "\bethesda softworks\star trek legacy"directory. Locate the "cfg_COMMAND_POINTS_MULTIPLIER_FOR_DECOMMISSIONING_SHIP" line and change its value to a number greater than 1.0. This will multiply the amount of command points you receive for a ship when it is decommissioned.

God Mode

There is a way to get God Mode by editing the config.cfg file and changing the following entry:

cfg_SPPlayerDamageModifier = 0.35

to this:

cfg_SPPlayerDamageModifier = 0.00

Note that this will only work in the Campaign mode, and remember to make a backup of the file in case you don't want to be in God Mode any more. When doing this ships under your command will not take any hull/shield damage.

Money Cheat

If you are brave enough to follow the God mode, you can change the config.cfg file further.

cfg_COMMAND_POINTS_MULTIPLIER_FOR_DECOMMISSIONING_SHIP = 0.5

This command changes the amount of Command Points you get back for selling the ship. As you can see, it is currently set so that you get back half the command points you originally paid for a ship. By changing the .5 to, say, 2.0, you can get twice the money back. I have tried it up to 5.0, and it seems to work fine.

Better Transporters

In certain cases you might need to toggle off the READ ONLY attribute first. Using your text editor alter the "rts_cfg.h" file in the game directory. Change the value in the "TRANSPORTER_MAX = 5" line to a higher number to transport more people.

Unlock All Missions

Find "art_cfg.h" file in the game directory. Change the "0" in the "GIVE_ALL_MISSIONS" line to "1".

U.S.S. Legacy

Successfully complete the game. Load the cleared saved game. When you purchase three Sovereign class ships the U.S.S. Legacy will be the final ship.

U.S.S. Voyager

Use the following trick to get the U.S.S Voyager as a usable ship during Campaign mode. Buy three Intrepid class ships. Notice that none of them are named Voyager. Sell the last ship you bought then re-buy it. More than likely, it will be named with the same name. Do this about four to five times quickly and you will find the U.S.S Voyager. This is the only way to get it as a usable ship in Campaign mode. For it to actually have Kate Mulgrew as its Captain's voice, you must have luck.

Faster Transporters

In certain cases you might need to toggle off the READ ONLY attribute first. Using your text editor alter the "rts_cfg.h" file in the game directory. Change the value in the "float TRANSPORTER_DELAY" entry to "0.0" (or "0.1").

Better Sensor Arrays

In certain cases you might need to toggle off the READ ONLY attribute first. Using your text editor alter the "rangeScan =" to "32000.0f".

Start with More Cash

In the config.cfg file, apply the following change: // Starting balance cfg_InitialCommandPoints = 9999999
