Default Adding Ships

I see a number of ship files in the downloads section. Can these be installed to show up randomly in the existing game? Or do missions/careers have to be built to include them? I'd love to see some fat juicy targets show up out of the blue, but I can't say I have the ambition to set up a career just to do it. Still love the game after all these years!

Depends on what the files call for, what mod etc. Most traffic in campaign is random generated, so will randomly pick ships from those on the roster unless otherwise specified. Example..in my update for TMO, most convoys are random generated, so if spawn will have different make ups each time. However, some specifically added per history , spawn once and have specific types of ships i.e. tankers, etc.

In single missions the specific ship has to be added.
