The following procedure allows you to raise the number of race points you get when customizing a race at the beginning of a game and requires a program such as WinZip or WinRAR. Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. Open the "Common" folder in the game directory. Example: "c:\program files\infogrames interactive\master of orion 3\gamedatasets\classic_01\gamedata\common". Make a back up of the "spreadsheets.mob" file. Open "spreadsheets.mob" with a .ZIP utility such as WinZip or WinRAR. Find and extract the "racemodifiers.txt" file from the list. Right click the unzipped file, select "Properties", and uncheck the read only box. Open the file with a text editor. Scroll down to the second table named "RacePickPoints". You will see a list of races followed by three columns. Avoid changing the first two columns, as they determine species and race. The third column is the number of pick points you originally have to available during the customization of your race at the beginning of the game. Changing the value from whatever it is set at to 1000 gives you more than enough to get whatever you want. After editing the values, save the file and recheck the read only box under preferences. Create a folder titled "spreadsheets" where the "spreadsheets.mob" file is located, and put the "racemodifiers.txt" there. You can now run the game and your changes will take effect. Also, some races cannot have certain skill levels. For example, Humans cannot have "Superior Toughness". You can however scroll down to "RaceToughness" in the "racemodifiers.txt" file and replace the "X" in the Superior column, Human row with a value. Now during race customization, you can change "Human Toughness" to "Superior". You can change any value in these tables.
