For more details on what is changed, please read below. Notes: The upgrade will work for the Microsoft Windows 95/98/2000/ME versions of Armada II (US, UK, and German). Saved games from Version 1.0 of Armada II will not work with Version 1.1. [b]New Changes:[/b]Adjusted the power of Borg Cubes for better balance Health bars of ships in the ship display now display the color of the ship's shields: green for full health, red for almost depleted and blue for no shields. Added a metal cost to creating a fusion cube. It will now cost 750 metal to form the fusion cube. It will cost 1500 metal to form the Tactical Fusion cube. Increased max zoom-out in strategic view from 1500 to 2200. Added 'F' as hotkey to bring up Formations menu. Added a left-click interface mode. Left click will give orders and select, while right click will be to deselect. Species 8472 fleets using the bio-pulse conduit now share damage (e.g. 50 points of damage to one ship gets dealt out as 10 points to each of 5 ships in the fleet) when the frigate is targeted.[b]Multiplayer/Instant Action Enhancements:[/b] Improved the game's Artificial Intelligence with numerous tweaks. Added an option to disallow map downloads, or only download after asking. Minimaps will display immediately after map download. You can recrew a station while life support is down. To save a multiplayer game, press CTRL+S. To load a saved game, you can choose it from the map selection screen in multiplayer. Added a slider for ship (not station) build times. Added a slider for global unit cost. Added a slider for map depth. Added a Slower Physics button. This will cause larger ships to turn and accelerate more slowly, more in line with the physics of ships seen in Star Trek shows and movies. This will affect Federation, Cardassian, Romulan, and Klingon vessels. Per fan requests, added an "Early Upgrade" techtree, which allows the ship upgrade facility to be built immediately after the first research facility is built. [b]New Fixes:[/b] Eliminate the warp jumpiness of the AI. Your own ships will not attack your fleet. Fixed fireball explosions. Fixed Radeon 8500 performance issue by disabling vertex buffer flushing for Radeon Optimizations for path planning system. For a complete list of changes, please see the Armada II 1.1 Patch Readme at the end of the patch installation. The readme will be available in the root directory of the Armada II folder after installation.

For new ships and stations click [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/files/Armada_2;16index"][b]HERE[/b][/url] For total modifications (completely remove all ships and stations that were in armada 2 and add new sides such as the Dominion or Star Wars) click [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/info/MODProfiles"][b]HERE[/url] or [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/info/MODUpgrades"]HERE[/url][/b], or look at our mod centre on the right hand sidebar. For our forums, where you can meet other fans and the people that made these mods click [url="http://forums.filefront.com/forumdisplay.php?f=136"][b]HERE.[/b][/url] At the heart of Star Trek Armada II are the most exciting elements from the Star Trek episodes and movies: leading fleets of starships into combat, exploring new planetary systems throughout the Alpha and Delta Quadrants, and carefully treading the delicate balance between peace and war among six different races. As in Star Trek Armada, the player has the ability to command large numbers of ships in a top down interactive environment. Star Trek Armada II takes the concept to it's logical conclusion by allowing the player to also experience the game in a full 3D mode, so the battles and elements of space conquest and exploration take on the vividness of the best of Star Trek. With over 45 new ship classes, 22 new special weapons, over 30 new stations, building a devastating armada has been taken to a new level. This demo allows you to play either as the the Federation or the Borg, and includes multiplayer and Instant Action, aswell as playing online. You can also play the first federation mission in single player.

10 Creativity: 8 Installation Instructions: 7 Overall Rating: 8.4 - lewrbmm69 ----------------------------------- "The year is 2160...and the Shadows are completely destroying us!!" Okay, so it's not 'quite' how it went, but it's also accurate and entirely true to this mod. Think of everything fantastic that was in Babylon 5 and this mod becomes literally a direct portrayal of the series in stunning form. There truly is nothing left of Star Trek here, from the opening video displaying some nice battles, mostly involving the Shadows gliding through the night and destroying anything they come across, to the completely changed main menu, with a certain B5 feel to it. This is all of course before you get into the game where, words cannot say enough, the mod comes into its own and makes it one of the best mods available to the game. Where to start? Well, each of the many B5 races (from the Humans to the Vorlons) have respective race fighters and whilst obviously not powerful separately, you can build them up to become very powerful forces, though that isn't to say that that the higher end battleships (or lower classes if you're playing as the mighty Vorlons or Shadows) can take on a good wing of them, although sustaining damage in the mean-time. What you also have to love is the attention to pure detail. Obviously there are plenty of ships to bolster your races fight for victory (or in most cases survival) from the canon ones as seen on the show to totally made up designs which fit in seamlessly and you wish were used on the show. Even to this date, so long after the mods release, the designs and textures hold up, but that's another point. Visually, this mod is stunning. With rotating station sections, accurate weapons and lots of them to go with some eye-boggling colour exchanges in fleet versus fleet action, the mod will whip you away into a world of its own, bolstering everything included in it. Even the huge Babylon 5 (part of the Alliance of races) still looks amazing, regardless of newer models, including those on the visually better games such as Bridge Commander. This is a hard to believe fact, considering the game is a strategy and technically shouldn't be enforcing these high quality graphics and yet, somehow, it does, with absolutely no problem to quality of gaming. Expect in this mod also everything you find in the 'real' Babylon 5. Huge jump-gates that allow the mass movement of ships to enemy quarters (think of the Borg's transwarp portal from stock, but much better graphics, also the seen blue and orange hue that is seen on the show). Specials that fit in too, such as the anti-Shadow ships (did someone just scream 'Whitestar' because good people, it's in here!) and telepaths to up the game (literally). Whilst the mod has no single player, understandably so with all the hard work it must've taken, the instant action is the pinnacle of the fun that you can have with this mod. Although 1 vs. 1 does make for some fun skirmishes, there is no way you can beat an all out multi-player slug-fest with either lots of Ai, who fight supremely hard for the map, sometimes more than you or other humans (best arrange that one) who have a vice-like command of their armada, from resource collecting (see the shuttles fly back and forth between sources for resources and their mother-ship freighters) to shipyard selection to the inevitable management of the clash between the fleets. The year might only be 2007, but Babylon 5 isn't the last best hope for peace...you are! - Joelteon7 (17/05/07) ------- Patch 1.01 can be found [url="http://www.armada2files.com/file.info?ID=20943"]here[/url].

[url="http://www.fleetops.net/download/Download/FleetOperations3.0/MultimediaPack2/"]FleetOps website[/url]. Please visit the official [url="http://www.fleetops.net/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,3/"]FleetOps forums[/url] to report bugs & balancing issues and to obtain technical support. The latest patch (3.02) reactivating the [b]save function[/b] can be found [file="97926"]here[/file]. After more than 2 years since the last release and about 8 years (!) of development beginning with Armada 1 in 2000 here is the first final version of the highly anticipated [b]Fleet Operations[/b] modification for Armada 2, running great on Vista machines and including full widescreen support. FleetOps V3 comes with 5 playable and unique races: the Federation, Klingons, Romulans and the Borg, already known from stock Armada 1 & 2. The newcomer race is the [b]Dominion[/b], coming with its own voice set and soundtrack (which is included in the new Multimedia pack for FleetOps). The mod is also known for its [b]radical changes of the stock Armada 2 gameplay[/b]. It ends up with having no warp, no planets to colonize and collect metal from and the removal of 3D space. Overall FleetOps is also much slower that the original game's one and the ships & stations can take a lot more damage. But we already know those changes from past versions, so what's new here? The first thing most people will notice are the [b]redone and improved menus[/b]. The main menu has no animations left like those of Armada 1 & 2 or old versions of FleetOps. Buttons are clearly aligned and easy to find now, but it does not look as great as the old one due to the missing animations - a matter of taste. The option menus received some useful additions though, for example anti-aliasing in the graphics menu and a much more detailed map selection screen in the game setup. For the first time ever seen in a Armada game there is a [b]rank system[/b] for ships. Destroying enemy forces results in being promoted up to 4 times. Promoted ships have enhanced offensive and defensive values - this causes you to take much more care of your "improved" vessels. [b]Sound and graphics[/b] are just stunning, especially if consider that this the Armada engine we are talking about. Objects in space like planets (only serving as background object though), suns, asteroid belts and most nebula types look fantastic. Also the ships and stations are very well done (although some textures could have gotten a higher resolution). And then the explosions - what a fest to the eye! The team has even added a "screen rumbling effect" to the those. And of course the shuttle traffic between your stations from the last version is still there. Last but not least comes the [b]enhanced map editor[/b], which has many improved and more detailed windows & options and is directly accessable from the FleetOps main menu. Sadly, the amount of changes resulted in a [b]defective save function[/b], which had to be disabled. The team promised to work on this problem and to reactivate saving in a future patch. So what are you waiting for? Download ASAP! :rock: - [b]TParis[/b]

than likely your favourite ship from the humans is in here. It's an amazing pack, through and through. Downloading this is guaranteeing some fun time with it, but it does have a few issues (although easily outweighed by the advantages). So lets get those out of the way. Teching up to get to your favourite high-end ships takes a good long time, with build times at that point being on the more frustrating side of long. That's not to say early on you don't have variety, as upon building the first shipyard, you are granted with the weakest ships the Federation has to offer, but also some fighters which are quite potent, which is the emphasis of this point; I don't think I could truthfully say this mod is too balanced. Sure, building is balanced and you need one hell of an economy to get everything you want, but why bother teching up to Excaliburs and Prometheus' when a fleet of fighters at the beginning of the game will do the job? It also lacks balance against any other race; fantastic as this compilation is, it has no counterpart in no other race, meaning it kind of sticks out like a sore thumb. Further issues come in the fact that whilst the tech tree is also long, it also seems a bit odd in places, which ships becoming buildable at times when you'd have thought they should've been some time back, but becoming redundant through newer, better ships whilst also not being needed because you simply have too much choice and that might seem odd for this type of game, but I can honestly say this mod perhaps charges you with too much choice. But, that's all the bad stuff I have to say. The rest is golden bars all the way. Most of the ships stand the test of time to now, being the best available for their respective ship, although unfortunately some are outdated (but easily replaced with enough looking for such ships). Those remaining from stock, particularly the planets, get a nice little buildbutton/wireframe uplift, making all content seem new, even when it is not, an ability few, if any, other mods can boast about being able to do. Whilst choice is plentiful, it's the kind of choice that no other mod can simply offer you, unless you threw a load of ships into your personal installation, but then you'd have to balance them with each other yarda yarda yarda. The fact the mod is fully campaign compatible makes it a bit more fun, although missions will take longer as you have to endure the overlong tech tree. Ships are given specials that relate to them, such as Excelsiors, being the backbone of your fleet at one stage, offers the Aegean's task in stock to restore shields, but another varient gives it the ability to transwarp, like it was supposed to. The loading screen, whilst seemingly thought of with little regard, has been updated to a very cool new shot, seemingly worthy of wallpaper for your desktop and the list goes on and on. The plethora of ships and stations to go through is simply phenomenal and once again, I stress that no other mod offers such variety. You're even give a starting unit of the Enterprise and as your tech progresses, you can 'upgrade' your Enterprise through the time line until you get to the recent powerhouse of the Sovereign version, which can be brought alongside a hero Defiant and Voyager, complete with authentic sounds. As much as possible, this mod does everything right and is literally perfect for Federation fans. And so a summary has to come. Whilst less 'Armada' and more build-one-ship-of-each-class-because-it's-fun-to-do might not win you the war, it's certainly a good peageant. And, actually going against what I said, it will win the war. The majority of ships have a purpose and those that don't look cool, so you admire them for that. You'll seldom find yourself running out of things to do with this mod, but in the end, its excellence needs another excellent compilation pack to rival the Federation's brute strength. Even if you don't like the Federation, this is a mod to show all others just how to get the job done and it does it fantastically. Thumbs up, 5 stars and all that jazz. Download a classic.
as the Dominion race, but seperately used for the Breen).
ships and stations are stronger, however it dosent overpower the other races that much. The dominion have there own transporter effects, the science ship is equipped with new weapons: Dominion Transcoherent Phasers, Dominion Sensor Jamming Systems(different color effect) and KETRACEL-WHITE Boost Enhancer! This file has alot of cool updates for this already fine mod, and is certainly worth the time to download!
bugs you find in the comments or to Draconis, there is a reason they make Beta versions ;) There are a few things you should follow, as noted in the readme, when installing this mod. And also it is a beta so theres the small chance it may mess one or three things up, or not work quite as it should, thats the nature of beta's, so dont expect perfection here, that said this mod is for checking out! To play the entire mod you will also need to download the Textures, [url=http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Star_Trek_Armada_25_Beta_Textures_Pack;36078]Wich you can find here[/url]
for a patch to be made that will incorporate all mods from the ‘Torpedo/Bomber ship’ up to 1.3.1 patches. After many ‘discussions’, confusion and STUBBORNEST of ‘learning the good old’ regular way, I have come to some half-way agreement for all to make this COMPLETE patch to please BOTH types of gamers(especially those who just \'can\'t do it\'). You should be able to play the Dominion and Breen races COMPLETELY and CRASH FREE with this mod now! [/quote]

series, Space Battleship Yamato I, II & III, UchÅ« Senkan Yamato?). Star Blazers was first broadcast in the United States in 1979. Significantly, it was the first popular English-translated anime that had an over-arching plot and storyline that required the episodes to be shown in order. It dealt with somewhat more mature themes than other productions aimed at the same target audience at the time. As a result, it paved the way for future arc-based, plot-driven anime translations. it should be noted the Movie will be released in DEC 2010.Nishizaki retains legal rights to trademark..

Please visit the official FleetOps forums to report bugs & balancing issues and to obtain technical support. Grab the latest FleetOps patch 3.12 from [file="113371"]HERE[/file]. [quote]I guess some of you have been waiting some time for this - the patch with the longest development span since the release of Fleet Operations 3.0 is now available for download. You thought this would be 3.0.8? You are wrong. We have decided to make it 3.1.0 instead. This major sub-release of version 3.0 does includes a number of important features and gives us the foundation for some exiting future content we have in development for you. Despite the changelog speaks mostly for itself i'd like to highlight some of the additions with this patch. The good old ingame interface, which has been largely untouched since Fleet Operations 1.0 was released in 2003 now finally got it's deserved update. The new interface is not just a new "skin" but also has gotten some technical updates. It is now possible to select up to 30 vessels at a time instead of the previous 16 limit. We have also taken on the inflexible cloaking system that Armada 2 provided us. Instead of having just one level of cloak that is always detectable by any sensor station, we now have different stages of cloak. That is quite comparable what you find in the shows where some races have cloaking devices which can be detected far more easily than for example the ones being used by the Romulans. 3.1.0 features also some important balancing changes. We have dug through a lot of input regarding balancing that you have made in our forums and combined some of the best of your ideas in this patch. Thanks for all your input, enjoy 3.1.0. Map Makers: Please note that there have been changes to the bzn file format. That means, previously made maps can currently not be used with 3.1.0. That does not mean your work is lost. Your maps created for 3.0.7 have to be patched. Info on how to do that will be updated here soon. 3.1.0 is a full install. A previous installation of Fleet Operations or Armada II is NOT required. An incremental patch from version 3.0.7 is not available. [- DOCa Cola][/quote]
dominion destroyer texture problem.
Republic, the Imperial Remnant, and revamped Federation and Klingon sides. You start with 4 construction ships, a starbase, and a "Hero" ship. For the Federation, its the U.S.S. Enterprise-E, for the Klingons it's a revamped Martok's Neghvar. For the New Republic its Home One, Ackbar's ship, and for the Imperial Remnant, it's a random Imperial class star destroyer. What I Like: -Pretty much everything in the New Republic and Imperial Remnant - TIE Squadrons :D What I Don't like: -How you have to research 500 things just to build ships, and the risk is there that if someone destroys your reasearch station, you're more than 10 minutes behind the enemy in research. -How the Dreadnought was included on the imperial side, but the exact same ship is unable to build on the republic side -How 2500 crew (An ISD's amount) Is gone within a matter of seconds, so 1/2 of my base is just a junkyard of used ships -How You can't colonize (Which was an error anyways, but still...) These gripes aside, the mod is an excellent addition, and is definetly worth downloading, even if you're on 56k.
have enough Mods yet. Of course I'm used to doing my own Mods for myself , this time I decided I could convert the Andromeda race over to A2 for the public. Most(not all) of the ships are cannon, however the stations are not. Since I don't make ships or stations myself. This proved to be a little hard on me. Most of the stations were stolen from the Federation. I still had missing wireframes and buttons (sorry). On the ships rather then have missing wireframes , I just copied the same one over (better then none) , plus they all almost look the same. If anyone wants to improve this Mod and re-release it...go for it. I don't claim this to be the best Mod nor did I try for it to be. I just wanted to introduce Andromeda into A2. Although I don't mind helpful comments or even minor complaints , please refrain from whinning. [/quote] The ships look like the ones from series. Good Job Wraith! You can discuss the mod [URL=http://forums.filesnetwork.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5807]Here[/URL]

three. So, what is The Twillight? Well lets go over each new feature. [b]New appealing interfaces including buttons and menus[/b] Now, Just take a look at the screenshots below and you can see that indeed, alot of detail has gone into the HUD and it really brings the feel of the game up to the next level for me, especialy for Species 8472. The interface really is appealing. [b]Edited missions which follow a new storyline which brings in ships from all eras of Star Trek.[/b] This is always a plus for any mod, it is always good and well to go and re-do all the missions you've done already in some new ships, but when a new story line comes along that really gives a truely great mod its momentum. An overview of the storyline is in the readme. [b]New ships and stations added, the best around the galaxy (old and new )[/b] Now this beta only cntains Species 8472 and The Borg, however there are some really nice ships and stations in this little package and it only adds to the feel already established by the new storyline and interface. [b]New canon weapon balancing to clearly show the advancements in technology a race makes.[/b] Some sides say that each race should have an even keel with different strengths and different weeknesses, and some say that it should be a case of who has most gets most. I prefer the latter, as life never deals a fair hand, so its good to see that the side with the most advanced technology gets the advantage they deserve from that. This makes the game realistic and adds to the gameplay experience in my view. [b]New timeline and refit system to show the progession of ship technology and upgrades.[/b] Now this is an intresting idea. Your ship is upgraded and refitted, to keep it up to the latest technology available, so you don't need to throw away all those old ships to build some new ones with even wooshier weapons, why not re-fit the ships you have? It's a neat concept. Add to all this the fact it comes in its own neat little installer, and you have yourself a mod well worth downloading and checking out, even if it is getting towards the painful side of 50mb's. Download now :)
because in actual fact, the Sovereign kicked my ass...which isn't the whole truth, as Oberths kicked my ass, but no matter how many times and no matter how many ships were sent at me, I kept on playing until my base was completely overrun by Dominion and Federation forces that turned my once proud Metathran Celestial fortress into rubble. And it was all fantastic fun. You see, the thing about AoW is that it throws away pretty much every tactic in the book and replaces it with just two; mine as much as you can from as many sources as you can, whilst building as much of everything as humanly possible. Humanly being the operative word there as even on medium Ai difficulty it can be quite difficult to keep up with Ai enemy or allies. You simply don't have the co-ordination or speed to maintain such manic building as having fifty Dominion bug ships building on the go, which the Ai spams however, this isn't about the Dominion or the Romulans, although being spit-shined for a glossy finish, as they featured the first part to this mod. No, this is the turn of the big guns of the averagely average Federation and the new race to the block, the deadly loyalists of the Metathran. As we've seen in the development process, the Metathran are completely new off the block and boast some of the most fantastic original designs in Armada, which is equalled only by their dominance late game. Whilst their early ships can barely tote a cannon of any sort, their big guns mean to do business and relay this by firing streams of torpedoes and rail beams that have been beautifully crafted, giving this mod an extra layer of graphical supremecy. Their ships both look bold and efficient, similarly to the Borg, whilst keeping their uniform look that means in battle, of which you will be swarmed in an almost neverending conflict from the minute the first phaser is fired, you'll never lose track of them. Granted, you'd argue that it's hard to lose a Hutet or Dominion dreadnought in battle, but you'll be surprised how little you'll pay direct attention to them when you've got a mass of a hundred other ships to control. Gameplay mechanics are drastically changed, along with the interfaces. It might seem odd in Armada to not look up to see your resources, but after only five minutes, I found my self instinctively looking to their new position almost as if they had always been there. On the bad side, the general interface buttons on the right hand side (camera, tooltiips etc.) doesn't seem to work quite as well, but unless you're seriously using them, there shouldn't be that much need to worry about them. Whilst I'm also on the more negative side of things, the Metathran seemed to have a few bugs. Whilst none of them inherently effected gameplay (certainly no crashes and that goes for all 4 races when up against each other, making this not only a brilliant mod to play, but a reliable one in terms of not crashing) some were quite frustrating; the unusual, but cool, mining freighters seemed to have problems when docking at the respective station when I was playing as them, but the Ai seemed to have no trouble in terms of getting them into dock, suggesting some sort of pathing problem. Indeed, one of a few, such as when the Metathran freighters are in a queue, they'll slip inside one another, or the Federation HQ Starbase, which builds its ships far to the north of the actual model. Other than pathing, the Metathran super weapon which I was looking forward to detonating didn't quite want to cause any sort of explosion, meaning it and a few resources were lost along with it when it went dumbly up against the enemy fleet. The Metathran also lack much in the way of select sounds, ie. when you select a starbase, you won't hear anything. Perhaps not so much of a problem, but some sounds would've been nice and with the possible non-entrance from 8472 (although cameoing their Frigates with the Kulinor's stolen special weapon) perhaps stealing their voices would be appropriate, given the Species almost fanatical devotion to purging the galaxy, of which there would seem to be a similar prospect with the Metathran. On the same point as similarity, there's nothing really new to the Federation. Seemingly every ship has a special weapon, most of which just fire extra torpedoes or extra phasers here and there that boost fleet prowess. In this mod, Starfleet does offer a comprehensive line-up of ships, so there's no real need to build one of each ship, as you can pretty much pick and chose the ships you like the look of, with most ships at a particular tech level being pretty similar in terms of defense and offensive value as each other. What truly makes this mod though are the little things. There are defnitely plenty of them, from the animations on every small structure of the Metathran, to the mining beams and docking manuvers; it seems everything in this universe is living and I think that really helps to make the mod stand out. One of the reasons for this review taking so long is indeed because the mod is so ingrossing, it'll stop you from doing other things, whilst seemingly you'll never really achieve quite a lot in it. The way the mod plays, as I mentioned above, has the races duke it out on an intergalactic battlefield that never really ends. It's almost as if you're in a perpetual state of conflict with no end in sight. Many will love this, as you just get to progressively build bigger and bigger ships until either you, the Ai or a human opponent (this mod would just be lovely to play online against someone) finds some sort of weakness and exploits it, ending the conflict usually pretty suddenly after that point. It'd take an awfully long time to make a list of all the features, so I'll let you discover them for yourselves, but I thought the maps warranted a comment. Although not essentially required, there have been a few maps created, purpose built to sustain the raging conflict of AoW. Though there aren't too many of them which isn't a huge problem as the mod comes with a map maker and everything is in check for you to create a new map, or edit a stock one so it is more playable for the style of AoW, which if you haven't tweaked from now is, "Build big. Blow up anything and everything". If I had to say one truly disheartening comment, it'd be that with the mass of ships (that can easily break 1000 in one small area with 3-4 players) the action can become a bit too much and the game really starts to slow down, although not for long as in that lag, it is highly likely that your fleet has been decimated. For those with weaker PCs, I'd recommend either going on a stock map that doesn't have much dilithium on it (being solo with crew as the only resources in game) or a smaller AoW map with less teams. Don't worry, you won't be missing out, as there are plenty of explosions to go around. I guess though it's time for a conclusion. Even though there are a few negative points, the ends truly justify the means and make this an utterly fantastic mod that is worthy of every player's hard drive. I'd almost go to say you'd be a fool not to download it. I haven't had this much fun in Armada 2 with a mod since Babylon 5 and I'd dare say that this is the best mod to hit Armada 2...until part 3 comes out, which features the Klingons (cry havoc and lets spam the Birds of war!) and the Borg (oh my God! The Spheres! The Spheres!) and is currently titled "Resistance is Fun!". 11 out of 10.

This unique combination allows the torpedo to phase through a target\'s shields and deliver a massive explosion on the targets hull. The result is that the target\'s shields are not weakened at all by this weapon, but it\'s hull integrity is massively reduced, so that a target can be destroyed even while it\'s shields are at 100%. These weapons are also able to pass through the corbomite reflector and point defense phaser. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Regenerative Shields: Regenerative shielding uses the main deflector to route power directly from the warp core to recharge the shield array. This allows the ship\'s shield recharge rate to be exceptionally high. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Self-Regenerating Ablative Armor: This technology is implemented by plating the hull with a heavy plating of a carbon-neutronium alloy, then installing a long-range replicator in the ship to automatically repair any damaged section of the armor; allowing a ship to survive in combat long after it\'s shields drop. This technology is the only known practical defence against temporal phase torpedoes. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Quantum Slipstream Drive: This technology is based on an alien device observed in the delta quadrant. It opens a quantum singularity to any point up to 40000 meters allowing the vessel to instantly travel to that point. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Temporal Gate: This device opens a wormhole to any explored point in space, allowing the vessel to travel instantly to any explored region. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Temporal Shift Device: This device shifts the vessel\'s temporal phase, causing the vessel to disappear from the current space-time continuum. So since the vessel technically does not exist, it can pass undetected through objects such as asteroid fields, nebulas, and weapons without harm. However because of the unique sub-space properties of tachyons, a ship under temporal shift can still be detected by tachyon-based sensors. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Isokinetic Cannon: This weapon fires a phased plasma projectile that is capable of passing through targets with even the heaviest shielding, and delivering heavy damage directly to the target\'s hull. All federation intrepid class vessels have been outfitted with this weapon. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Stealth Device: This device is similar to the effect of a cloak, except it can engage and disengage much faster, and it does not require any special energy. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Modifications --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- All borg combat vessels have been enhanced, and they cost more now too. All race\'s torpedo turrets have been upgraded as well. The intrepid class vessels have been outfitted with isokinetic cannons. [/quote] Excellent work.
(Cardassians/Dominion) [u][b]Upcoming Races:[/b][/u] - Federation - Klingons - Borg This mod is coming with tons of new ships & stations, new special weapons, new button art, improved special effects and - most important - huge gameplay changes for Armada 2. It feels much more like Armada 1 now, with a few adjustments: no metal to collect, no officers needed to build ships, no planets to colonize (crew is needed though) and no warp! The ship's physics have changed aswell. They maneuver a lot slower now and can take loads of damage. Ships keep moving most of the time while fighting the enemy, which makes the battles much more exciting. :rock: Whoever liked [file="47309 "]'STA1: Alliances'[/file] will love this baby! :mepimp: Download this NOW!

all involved :) This patch updates some textures, changes the next generation pulse weapons to something more accurate, and basicly bugs and glitches that have been reported so far. Download this to fix your problems with the 2.5 beta now!
work into one easily installed file. State of the art graphics, new physics so the ships turn and bank instead of spin and a devastating new campaign AI; it's all here.
Klingon Academy for even more realism. NEW SHIPS! Such as the new Tholian Ultility Vessels, the USS Excelsior, IKS Kronos 1 and more. NEW TEXTURES! Textures taken from KA to make weapons fire more realistic. NEW SINGLE PLAYER Rebalanced Single Player makes the Single Player game into another dimension to the mod. UNPLAYABLE MISSIONS: Grey Eminance (Known as the Romulan Connection) Assimilation (Known as Intergration) Twilight Hour (Known as The Final Hour) Once and Again (Known as A time and Again) Alpha and Omega Part I (Known as The Last Best Chance Part I) Alpha and Omega Part II (Known as The Last Best Chance Part II) These should be fixed by 2.5 Theres a whole lot of new tweaks and rebalancing in the new V.2 so KA:TC becomes more polished and faithful to KA Canon. Future Plans V.2.5 New ship SODs (planned for V.2 but delayed) New Missions (All single player fully working) New Weapons (Genesis Device and such) Looks like a great mod, can't wait to try it out!
player in the middle of the Dominion War, either on the Federation or the Dominion, and place units smartly to survive. My goal was to put the “S” back in RTS. Too many people are playing A2 the way it wasn’t meant to be played: Building QehRals/Galaxies/Venators/Fusion Cubes/Etc as fast as they can, then obliterating the enemy base. Did the Federation assemble 50 galaxy class starships, and then blow Cardassia to pieces? I think not. I’ve made A2 a thinking man’s game, like the developers intended it to be: Build Times are longer, Costs are higher, and ships are way better balanced. This may be the most canon mod to date :D . I want the player to use his units wisely, to think before he sends ships into combat, to guard what is most important with the most ships…you get the idea ;) . There are a few big changes though, the main ones being the taking away of the Tachyon Detection grid and the ability to colonize planets. I took these away because A) Cloaking was used a lot in DS9 episodes, and there were hardly, if any at all, uses of TDGs. B) When you are at war, why colonize a new planet near the enemy? You are almost sentencing those poor colonists to death… Unfortunately, there may be a few bugs still. One that I know about is that the Instant Action menu displays all races, but this mod is meant to have only the Federation and Cardassian (Dominion). If I can fix it, look for it in the 1.1 patch. If you play with either Feds or Dom. vs another race, it would be terribly unbalanced... Those Probems aside, I think this is my best work, and I would highly recommend downloading it. You won't be dissaponted :D Here are some pictures of In-Game Action: [img]http://www.gamingfiles.com/screenshots/16/files_extra/fpic1.JPG[/img] [b]The Rotarran and Defiant cloaked in enemy territory [img]http://www.gamingfiles.com/screenshots/16/files_extra/fpic2.JPG[/img] The Defiant overseeing the construction of a new Miranda class starship [img]http://www.gamingfiles.com/screenshots/16/files_extra/pic1.JPG[/img] A Galor class starship under attack by two Galaxy classes [img]http://www.gamingfiles.com/screenshots/16/files_extra/pic2.JPG[/img] Gul Dukat and Weyoun plotting their next move[/b]
races are miles as the Borg really on a low number of high power ships and the Klingons rush you with spammed BoPs... Anyone who followed my threads on the development will know the Klingons contain a lot of new content, the Borg are equally done but really, who cares about borg models? Lots of small things have been changed in this part (I hope it's a continual improvement) and a few cool things like carriers and ship refits (awesome fun). The old races have been improved with new units to keep them interesting and I have worked on the AI to make it easier bewteen levels but still solid on hard. There were more things I wanted to do, unfortunately I start a new job in London soon so have to move, I'll get back to it when I set up properly. In the mean time have fun! **Any content I made in this or other mods is free to be reused, redistributed and edited so long as credit is given.** [b]Please note:[/b] [i]In order to play the mod, you need to install BOTH [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Star_Trek_Armada_2_Art_Of_War_Part_1;83619"]Art of War part 1[/url] and [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Art_of_War_Holy_Wars;85917"]Art of War part 2[/url].
six hundred maps is not really that much. No, this pack has more than two thousand maps. Yes, thats 2000, not 200, not 20 and not a typo. This contains, as one might expect quite an impressive number of maps. I might suggest that if your worried about disc space that you unzip it to a different folder before dropping it into your /bzn folder! It should be noted that the majority of these maps have been unavailable to anybody that has not spent years in online gaming. The gaming community shares maps through the ingame downloads system, so there is a fairly Darwinian process for maps, lots of the ones here are not likely to have been seen to much my the majority of the gaming community let alone the modding community that visits the site. Indeed, one problem is that two [i]thousand[/i] maps is quite a lot. Luckily, having throught of everything there is also a "lite" pack on the site already which contains a sensible number (thats only a hundred and something) of the most popular maps, as played by the online gaming community. You really ought to be downloading one or the other, possibly the other first and then this once you get fed up with the hundred or so "best" maps.
all of you who don\'t have it. Thanks to Sweldon for the file.
of the new features and fixes, from the readme: [quote]fixes makes the Karemma Frieghter need resources to be built Fixes the Orbital Processor bug Fixes the Dom AI problem Fixes the crashing problem There is a better icon for the Dominion race, it now changes with your team color The Dominion Destroyer now has a Ramming Speed weapon instead of the poleron torpedo[/quote]
races in this mod, it is purely Imperial vs New Republic. The mod is specifically designed to work with the ST: Armada 2 Demo, but it will work with the Full version as well. [/quote] I\'d have to say the best part of this mod is its ability to be used in the ST: ARmada 2 demo. Even people WITHOUT the game can enjoy this mod!!!! EXCELLENT work ST vs SW team!
Warp Flash, When stuff Blows Up it blows Up! shockwaves damage near by objects Stunning Effects from the BC Mod known as NanoFX, a Must download for any Explosion lover!
Mesh rather than a Mod I decided to park this in the 3D Mesh Directory on here because it doesn\'t contain a playable mod and it is more relevant to a mesh rather than the Stargate Mods. Obviously it doesn\'t have instant playability but you could, provided you have the skills, make this into a very quality mod if you are willing to work on it!. The Model itself is a good replica. It\'s not as detailed as some other instances of the Atlantis model I\'ve seen for other games but it does look extremely promising. Again, because it is not the finished product it is hard to guage exactly what it will look like ingame but I will definitely give it the benefit of the doubt. This model is from the [url=\"http://armada2.filefront.com/info/MOD-A2SGP\"]Stargate Project[/url] which was mothballed recently.....[url=\"http://armada2.filefront.com/news/Stargate_Project;36839\"]info here[/url] No readme came with the file but [b]ColdDarkParanoia[/b] stated via email that it has a free usage policy, therefore you can work away on this and release it for Armada or Armada 2 granted you still give credit to CDP. This is one for the Stargate fans - [b]IKS[/b]
say try it out its awesome :rock:
new ship balance requiring new fleet formations, and the removal of warp speeds from the combat-- Tactical Assault combines a quantum leap in overall programming with the killer graphics that Yacuzza provides. An incredible amount of work went into this mod, and the sheer love of the game shows through in this demo. Be advised of the following before you download, however: Single player missions are NOT SUPPORTED in this mod. If you like the single player campaign, install Tactical Assault on a separate download using the truly awesome self-installing executable file (and enjoy the video, too). This mod includes only the Borg, Cardassian Union, Dominion, and Romulan Star Empire. So Starfleet kids such as myself will have to wait for the full version. This is a demo of a total conversion for Armada II. It may take you several hours (or years, depending on your connection speed) in order to get it all downloaded. Your patience with FileFront\'s servers is appreciated. Also, this is still only a demo. So if you encounter any bugs, please advise Yacuzza of them using our forums. Comments on this page may or may not be dealt with directly. Comments in the forums are far more effective. That said, what are you waiting for? Get out there and play. - the Kid :cool:

need for latinum to build planetary shields I have been able to fix the sound problem!!!!!! Now you can use the Dominion in Early tech games, no super weapons games and no science ship games. The Dominion also mines faster and produces crew faster (thats why the Dominion Comp wouldn\'t do anything, it was trying to build breen destroyers that need 350 crew....) The Dominion Build list has also been changed[/quote] Note that this patch has all the changes for the first Patch, so you don\'t have to download the first to be able to use this one.

whether or not you want to "take the second star to the left" in a Constitution class, "journey into the new frontier" in your advanced Excelsior class, "be one big happy family" in a Miranda or simply explore the scientific sites of the Alpha quadrant in your Oberth, you have a wide choice in numerous ships and cleverly done kit-bashes. The textures are great and so to are the models, so re-live those good all days with some brilliant ships. Hunt for those cloaked ships and try your best at warp 8, engage the download! Here is the link to some missing texture files, most definitely recommended for maximum playing fun. http://armada2.filefront.com/file/TMP_Federation_Ship_Pack_Missing_Textures;57751
successfully defended Sector 001 against another borg threat. Since that time the alpha quadrant has been a little quiet in general following the end of the war with the Dominion. The Alpha quadrant has seen minor skirmishes between the Klingon Empire and it's various foes because of it's undying need for violence and death, the war between the Borg and Species 8472 did soften for a while after Admiral Janeway returned from the past to recover Voyager and to detroy the Borg's central command functions. But since then the borg re-formed with a new leader, rampaging through the delta quadrant, discovering new technologies that were previously unknown to them, they have become even more powerful, with the same central idea as before - perfection - at any cost. The Domion retreated to the Gamma quadrant for a few year, while they rebuilt their ships. Then in 2380 they entered the Alpha quadrant again through the wormhole guarded by the Deep Space 9 station. DS9 was destroyed and the Dominion fleet managed to get behind Cardassian borders where they met up with the Breen and the Cardassians, before engaging in a trade agreement with the Ferengi. ultimately this created the Dominion, Breen, Ferengi and Cardassian Alliance. In recent years the Federation and Starfleet have managed to rebuild their fleet to its entirety, introducing new and improved starships, derived from technologies gained from the Delta quadrant and from the Gamma quadrant, to deal with the threat of other malicious species in the Galaxy. The invention of Slipstream drive has meant that the Federation has expanded to cover more than one third of the milky way, and that it has managed to recover new types of metal and technologies. Their new fleet includes the Eximus Class - a destroyer, the Prometheus Class - which while older than a few other ships, is still the most powerful ship in the fleet armed with shield destroying torpedoes, a Slipstream drive and multi quantum torpedo launchers and phasor banks, as well as the introduction of ablative armor on the intrepid class of vessel. There were attempts made by Starfleet to adapt the armor for other classes of ship, but it proved to be impracticable on other classes of vessels. Since then the Borg have attempted many times to assimilate technology that has originated from another quadrant or from the future, but each time they have failed. But in the immediate past the Federation and it's ships have noticed phases in and out of our time, space and continuum, or universe. Theorists have thought of many ideas about why this is happening, such as Parrallel universes, Q, even Voyager was examined, but her Captain's older self's was not to blame. The Federation are becoming more desperate to find out why, where and to who else this might be happening to. Recently, and most seriously a Romulan warbird was phased out of time and space and it re-appeared inside of a soverign class vessel, destroying both ships. So as a result of this and other factors Starfleet, the Klingon Empire, the Borg and all the other major powers in Alpha and Beta quadrants have been ordered by their governments to investigate this problem, by firstly travelling to the source of the time-space shifting, on the fringes of the galaxy.[/quote]
it. I add new build button\'s for federation and borg.[/quote]
their respective assimilation textures. The Aegean looks sweet, it has clearer and more defined textures while still maintaining it's spartan combat-orientated design. The Defiant retexture is a bit on the wild side with purple armour plates dotted on the main part of the hull. The Venture class scout is quite interesting too especially it's contrasting hull textures which look cool- white dorsal hull and metallic grey ventral hull. The Nebula's textures (notably it's saucer) look similar to a New Orleans rather than a direct Galaxy copy which makes the Nebula a bit more unique. The Iwo-Jima has a strange but cool gold NX type hull. Even the non-combat support ships have recieved a total makeover with the Repair and Construction ships looking the best of that bunch. The planets are also included in this pack and they are really something else. The retextures of these planets are impressive. All in all, it's a very craftly done retexture job for the Federation and if you are indeed an online combatant or a fan of the A2 Upgrade project then this is a must have download!! Excellent job Curtis! [b]- IKS[/b]

in all that time there wasn’t established new collective because Borg started to act different. Little ships that are left to Borg managed to come to border of Delta and Gamma quadrant and they conquered few systems. After only several years Borg didn’t used assimilation as tool for increasing their strength because they developed new methods of cloning so they started massive production on new forces. In few years Borg restored himself like he was before destruction of collective, but every Borg was individual. That gave Borg new dimension of existence. In that time life in Alpha quadrant flows pretty normal for situation in there. Cardassians are restoring from all wars that happened in last few years, but one their military experiment didn’t go well, and it set them few years back. When they before 5 years started testing temporal weaponry, they didn’t know what disaster expects them Before 3 years experiment on new temporal bomb went wrong, from unknown reasons power of explosion was thousand times stronger then they expected which led to disappearance of 25% Cardassian space in time and continuum. Because of complex of experiment itself and explosion, those planets and systems weren’t destroyed; they were moved in another galaxy. There, on foundations of Cardassian Empire, grow new race- Temporal Empire. Temporal Empire tried to reach their ancestors Cardassians who are not aware of them because to them only few years passed, but to Temporal Empire few centuries passed. They opened gate between 2 galaxies, but unfortunately gate appeared in middle of new Borg society in Delta quadrant. Then Borg attacked Temporal Empire. Romulans spend those years in taking care about internal problems with empire and fighting Reman rebellion. Neutral zone still exist which means that relationships with them and Federation are still not better. Federation and Klingons are on the end of signing new historical treaty about joining new Klingon Republic to United Federation of Planets. Specie 8472 goes to more often to Alpha quadrant to better meet new species that already live there, however they did not shown and hostile attentions.
DragonMaster's utrla fusion cube? You'll just have to download to find out. ;)
like his reference.
1 issue resolved * Mission 5 issue resolved And much more ........
definitely want this. As far as I can see, the textures have been improved, but I still think they could do with a little more work to cover a few more prominent spots. It also has extra towers or little features as well as the "spike" underneath the city, seen on the rise of the city. So in the canon sense, it's a little bit closer. Armed with deadly drones and the ability to launch Puddle Jumpers, this is a pretty neat station, similarly to the previous version. To get the Puddle Jumper, you'll need [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Puddle_Jumper;57622"]this[/url] and [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/file/;57856"]this[/url].
the game, but in different color effects. Have fun :)
considering that the much smaller version 1.01 of this mod was released just a week ago. More than doubled in size (from about 40MB to 90MB) this pack brings visuals of your Armada 2 installation to a new level, featuring: [b]- new planet and moon models - new map backgrounds - new asteroid fields - comets - new map editor assistant - and much more. [/b] What I don't like about it is the loss of online compatibility to stock 1.1 installations and the quite confusing installer, which could need some tweaking. But it's still must-have for all the other players out there :rock: . [b]- TParis[/b] [b]Note:[/b] It's recommended to install this on a clean 1.1 version of A2. Those who are already using 1.0 or 1.01 of Midnight Universe have to remove these versions before installing this in order to make it work properly.
(new sprite effect included) even though it might seem slightly...well very dwarfed compared to one (look at the pics if you don\'t believe me). Still, she looks very nice with some very crisp textures on a model which does a very good job of replicating the CGI version seen on the show. In terms of the mod itself, it comes with a nice full complement. It contains a good looking admiral\'s pic, a wireframe and a defined build button. She will most likely be balanced to other Stargate ships and/or be very powerful, so don\'t underestimate the power of this ship, but don\'t overestimate it either -it\'s a cruiser, not a battleship. Regardless, this will be good for recreations and is a must have for Stargate (Atlantis) fans.
these weapons are origional and unique, and the pack is worth a download. Take a look at the Readme for more details on what\'s included, and then downolad.
each other or any of the stock races, to which this is balanced to. Don't let the term balance believe that a Sovereign can go toe-to-toe with one of these battleships...because it can't. They're huge. Kilometres long kinda large. Yeah, Sovereign doesn't sound so tough now does it? Not with flak cannons, shield-piercing beam weapons and other such blistering traits that come from the Freespace 2 universe. So, what is Freespace 2 (FS2)? It was a hit simulator game that was developed by the same people who made Klingon Academy and sufficed to say, the awesomeness from the latter was carried onto the former. A very sharp and agile game that went free-ware, the FS2 universe is littered with races all vying for power (isn't that the way) over the other, or at the least, trying to survive. Tough life, eh? The two races bring new game-play techniques to the plate as well. The fighters for each race provide you with early defence, along with the defensive turret you can build for each race whilst later on providing fleet support for your un-shielded capital's. Don't expect fighters to do too much though in terms of offensive power, unless you have 100 of them in which case the enemy Ai, which I've been subject to it's err 'niceness', will likely have the same power to match and then some...plus a few capital's on the side. Ship wise, models and textures and very close to their real FS2 counter-parts, so make sure you go starship spotting early on. Each of the two races does have a small supply of ships to build, including a couple of fighters on each side, but along with the stations, there isn't too much variety. There is enough for what you need and the difference does certainly play nicely into tech and resource management with lots of things doubling up, but this led me to a bit of confusion when beta'ing the Shivans. Don't let this throw you down as it is merely the first gauntlet of the mod. Overcome this and all you need to do is overcome the enemy Ai's fleet, no easy task I tell you. Of course, one of those points is especially important. Resource management is pivotal. These ships are not cheap to build (why would be when they're double the length of a Romulan Warbird?) and if you lose focus of this, you'll be grinding your fleet to a steady halt. However, get control of the doubling-up function of certain ships and learn capital ship role's quickly and you'll be fighting the enemy Ai just as heavily as in the actual game itself. As a mod itself though, it is fundamentally fun, which should be your main priority. The new things it adds to the plate certainly provide a fresh out-look on the game, while giving you a chance to pick a stock race and see how a few Klingon Bird fo Prey's can handle a Shivan destroyer. Content isn't missing either. Each race comes with a fully implemented interface, build button's, wireframes plus a new multi-player set-up window that is more akin to FS2's set-up. All in all, this is a recommend download for those who played and loved FS2, those who want a challenge against some hard, but perfectly balanced ships and those who want to slug it out in huge ships. There's enough here for everyone...if only I could find my Sathanas to blow the enemy up with...
the Borg are controlled from. From this location, the Borg Queen oversees all Borg activities. Borg Unicomplex is designed for maximum efficiency consisting of millions of integrated sub-structures populated by trillions of Borg drones. [/quote] This is a very cool station by Yacuzza, very large, very stong and very powerful, I like it :D it comes with an installer so back up your files! DOWNLOAD NOW! please.
sure enough, here it is. And oh hell is it ever awesome. Not only are there roughly ten times the Cardassian ships that actual Star Trek ever showed. Somehow they fought a whole war with two classes of ship, and a kitbash. This mod ALSO includes some of the most truly awesome weapons effects seen for the Cardassians (just take a look at the pic below) and a full set of everything you need in order to install. And of course, being as extremely thorough as he is, Dan also includes a fully comprehensive holy-crap-it's-long set of installation instructions. You just can't go wrong. (note: you can, but it's very difficult) A mod like this doesn't come along regularly for A2Files, but when it does, it's something to celebrate. And download. Get it right now. :cool:
downloading this. I called the previous version of A2PP the Final version. I thought I had done everything which really could be done with the Armada II physics and weapons files. While I watched a TNG episode (Season 1 Finale and right after the Season 2 opener) one evening, I realized there was still a great deal more which needed to be done. The grand old lady deserved much I had not given her yet. In A2PP Final, I did a spot review of the files rather than comprehensively examine and test all of them. This was a mistake. Errors were overlooked. Contradictions with the intent behind A2PP were ignored. In short, I did a very poor version of my signature mod. Consider these mistakes rectified with this version. Everything has been checked. The movement files have been tested to destruction. Anything which did not conform to the original ideas I had in mind has been ruthlessly adjusted towards where it should be. Or ruthlessly purged. Weapons ranges have been adjusted yet again to take advantage of the new movement and a few other things. Now, your ships will move like they should have in the first place when I began all of this so long ago. This plays and looks very differently from what you have grown accustomed to. Line for line, I think this is the best version of A2 Physics Project I have yet produced. As some of you are aware of, I began a thread in the Forums concerning starfighters and starfighter combat in A2. I had some ideas about this and I wanted to see what other ideas all of you had. Those of you who participated in the discussion, thank you. Your ideas allowed me to really think about how I wanted fighters to act in Armada II. Included in this package is a complete set of physics and weapons files for fighters and fighterbombers. They use Dan1025 s Peregrine and Javelin Fighter mods as a basis. They do what I think fighters should be capable of in Armada II. These are a good start point for future A2 fighter projects. I am quite sure someone will take these and improve them. So, here it is. The latest version of the, ahem, "simple little ODF mod" I am justifiably proud of. As usual, lots of high-powered talent gave me help, advice, and guidance. Mostly, I sat and listened to them and tried to make their ideas work. All of the really good ideas included herein are theirs, of course. All of the mistakes are mine.[/quote] Note that this version corrects the previously uploaded version. Congratulations to thunderfoot006!
implementation of a new sound engine. Enjoy! [u][b]IMPORTANT:[/b] [/u]The [b]multimedia pack[/b], including all the music for the mod, can be downloaded from the [url="http://www.fleetops.net/download/Download/FleetOperations3.0/MultimediaPack2/"]FleetOps website[/url]. Please visit the official FleetOps forums to report bugs & balancing issues and to obtain technical support. [b]- TParis[/b] [quote]We are happy to announce that we have a new patch ready for public release - 3.1.4. The newest patch for Fleet Operations can be seen as a foundation for a future patch. We decided to release 3.1.4 early on and pulled some bigger features we initially planned for this release, we'd like to invest more time into before giving them to you. Croesus, who did a outstanding job for Fleet Operations in the past as voice actor now joined us as a full staff member. Some of his latest work can be heard in this patch in the form of new voice sets. On the subject of audio..have you heard the name FMOD Ex? No? I am sure you still have heard of it already. FMOD Ex is the sound engine being used in games like Starcraft II, Bioshock, Crysis and many others. Thanks to it's developers making FMOD Ex available to non-commercial projects, Fleet Operations now uses the very same engine as replacement for the flawed and now outdated sound system that Armada 2 came with. That is not all. The fighter ship AI has been vastly improved. Fighters do now directly support their fighter carriers. Fighter stay much closer to their carriers and attack what their carrier attacks. Also many new interesting balancing changes are part of this patch including a lot of new officer abilities or repair ship usage. I can only recommend you read in the changelog below for some details. [- DOCa Cola][/quote]
mesh that is befitting of them. It really will help now for any re-enactments you wish to do from the series. My suggestion, for those who have and want, is to get this building Wraith Darts. That way you could have a fully fledged battle, providing of course you chuck in some F-302\'s. The possibilities are huge. In fact, this mod is so good, the only thing it doesn\'t come with is an admiral\'s pic, which is ludicrously easy to make. What really will get the user though are the nice details. The very good looking blue pulses seen in the screenshot ARE included in this pack. There\'s a buildbutton, scaled to fit and a wireframe that takes it that step further with perhaps a literal approach to \"wire\". In terms of an overall mod package, this is one of the best I\'ve seen for a while, combining details, content and sheer good looks. Stargate fans, beware. A big bad ship has come to wipe out Atlantis. Think you can take this on?
to mentions ships and things that are in season 9 and 10 thanks.[/quote]So don't you people say you haven't been warned. ;) Anyhow, a lovely ship here (much the same as the one that was uploaded yesterday, though in a pack with three others) - This one however appears to have better textures (though usually down to a matter of taste). Anyhow, enjoy ;) - SSA
Armada 2 to give 'em a whole new look :) . I recommend using this pack together with the prior A2U packs ([file="75535"]1.40[/file] and [file="80894"]1.51[/file]) So, you stock A2 single- and multiplayer gamers, what are you waiting for? Resistance is futile :borg: . - TParis
re-building them. They have waited in the shadows , Now with their fleet and some of the Armada ships. They have launched an Attack on the rest of the Armada World...and they didn\'t come to play...they came to destroy. The ferengi will never be looked at the same way again.[/quote] Excellent idea, and definetl y worth a download :)
thing we didn't include were the worlds themselves. And some textures and .ODF entries, but we'll make sure they get in the next version. Sorry about that. :( We're very proud of what we have accomplished and we hope to have version 1.1 available very soon.

collection. So, a low-down. Who, or what, exactly are the Tholians? They are a xenophobic and somewhat mysterious race in the Alpha Quadrant. They rarely are seen and so not too much is known about them. As well as that, their ships are rarely seen in combat, but, they would alledgedly be powerful. So that's that. The bad stuff: -No new sounds. -No "new" textures (my understanding was re-used/applied old ones). -No admiral pic's. The good stuff: -...THE THOLIANS AS A FULL RACE -Tholian Web special web. -Specific tech tree and construction list (aimed more for defensive purposes). -Extensive list of ships and stations (25/14). -Fusion? I think this must be the smaller ships creating bigger versions, which is a nice idea, seen as the shapes would allow for it. -Much, much more. As to back me up, check out the screenshots below. Failing that, you could just trust me and download 2.5mb, which is not much, even for you 56kers. Naturally, I could tempt you with the fact it's in an auto-installer.
ship which saw heavy action in the battle of Antartica against the Goa\'uld whilst SG-1 were on their wild goose chase to find the lost city. Apart from the history, this ship will be useful in re-enacting scenes from the hit series with it\'s own custom weapons odf! There are a few things to point out though before download. The texture quality seems quite \"wishy-washy\" (best description, I really did try) and whilst it is perfectly useable, I would recommend against trying to get some good quality pictures/PoTD shots with it. Also, the model seems fairly low poly but I don\'t have any issue with this as the game is called Armada, so you can build more of these and have your own fleet of X303\'s! Also note, this is the first ship to properly go into the new Stargate category added to the ships races section, so well done there. Finally, mentioned with the 304 in mind, please do not talk about the plot here. It could severely ruin it for people who want to see but haven\'t yet. Thank you.
simply stunning :rock: . But consider yourself by viewing the screenshot... A must download for stock A2 players! :mepimp: - TParis
Prometheus perfectly. A very nice ship thats worth a download :) - Mr. Greg -------------------------------------------- There's something to be said for the most downloaded ship (and one of the most downloaded anythings) on this site. You obviously can't obtain that status without having several key qualities. The obvious one is looks. It looks fantastic. Deemon's hard work pays off in a low-poly spectacular design that incorporates every major feature of the USS Prometheus, as seen in 'Message in A Bottle'. Due to its creation, it also doesn't cause slow-down when playing, making it a versatile fleet piece in the fleet. With its incessant speed, obliterating weaponry and strong defence, it brings the stock Federation up to 'Red Alert', whilst the enemy ships will likely be doing the same. Of course, that's not to say this isn't balanced, which it is. Whilst it comes at quite a resource cost (bar crew and officers) it maintains the need for a large amount of them, but controls the amount...slightly. That being said, leave the enemy to ponder and make a fleet of them (ie. 16) then, well, you're screwed, really. Whilst it might seem a bit bias to say that this is [i]the[/i] best ship on the site, it certainly is way high up there and with such grace as well. This is a must download for any Armada 2 player. - Joelteon7
GOOD) by moddifying odf's into something they wish more desireable. It is basically bigger and better then last time, fixing 3 out of 4 reported bugs (those mentioned in the beneath readme, whilst the fourth isn't such a big problem) and generally enhances it. I like the nice touch of having the buttons with ships or stations on from the game, really brings it into the Star Trek/Armada spirit of things, all this of course in a tidy .exe. My opinion: Get it, it's very good, look's nice and seem's to work really quite well. Well done!
like to construct it//
races for the Dominion!
this ship in the game looks really awsome imo and the mod is well done, almost definatly worth a download. ;)
for maps, this is simply the ultimate collection.
something on this kinda of scale. Precisely, 14 month's worth of idea's. Think about that while you're downloading this mod (56kers, get your coffee on standby, stat)! 14 month's of effort in this case equals a heck of a lot of 0's and 1's. To what effect you ask? Every stock race has been thrown upside down, ripped apart and built again from scratch. Species 8472 have been waved goodbye, but with more ships and stations and Dominion ships added to the Cardassian side, quite honestly, who need's 'em? The latest models available to us, so standby, because I can tell you, I don't remember the last time I was this excited about a modification for A2! Scrolling through the admrial pic's, you can see, right from them, the quality we're talking about, which should be discussed a little bit. -Tech-tree's have been reformatted to allow for a bit more thought. What do you want researching? What do you NEED researching? What wins first? -The newest designs, as mentioned above. We're talking about poly-reduced versions of favourite Bridge Commander and Starfleet Command 3 ships and stations. Remember as well, the old favourite's still being in there: Sovereign, Defiant, Warbird (two of 'em!), Negh'Var and a nasty looking Borg Cube surely set for assimilation. Jupiter station, classified Romulan bases, collossal Borg shipyards. -Ai that's been tested most recently, allowing for brilliant combat modes and some of the best action you can get, without even going online! There are of course things people might not like. For example, scouting through the odf's, the Courageous, heavy escort (Federation), requires 448 seconds to be built. Well, in minutes, that's about 7 and a half. But at the cost of time we have balance, something which is thoroughly important. The new tech-tree's people may find too complicated or perhaps a little bit over the top. Again, these people I ask you to think about the hard-work that has been put into this. Additionally, low-resolution textures can be obtained from here, http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Borg_incursion_Vital_Responses_Low_Resolution_Textures;53797 if you want/need them. Also, please report any bugs/glitches/problems in this thread on gamingforums: http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?p=2534903#post2534903 The 1.1 patch which fixes reported bugs and glitches can also be found here, http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Borg_incursion_Vital_Responses11_Patch;55378 So, without further adue, I present to you the biggest mod, this side of 2006! Happy New Year, with this, I'm sure it'll be "out-of-this-frontier!" (For your information, all credits are found after installation and they're pretty damn thorough!)

uses some unique texture ;) . But Curt also decided to redo his Species 8472 textures and put them into this pack along with the Klingons. The ships haven't got any 'armor scheme' on their hulls and use more canon colors (at least those you could see in Voyager). You can still use the old [file="81861"]Species 8472 pack[/file] if you don't like this one.

battleship. Designed to be one of the Anti-Borg ships (such other ships include the New Orleans and Cheyenne that fought in Wolf 359 and the later ships that proved to be more successful, including the Akira and Defiant) but wasn't ready in time for the Wolf 359 battle. Flagship of the fleet with its power alone (never mess with a ship that has torpedo tubes going into 2 digits and fires quantum torpedoes)...so it's apt that it is blessed with a great model in this game. Admiral's Sovereign is a real beauty. You don't need me to tell you that though, the screenshots below really do not do it justice. Low in poly (just above the stock Sovereign, in fact) its textures allow it to shine through (of which there are two sets, one shown below and a darker one for those who perhaps want the more militaristic feel to it). This isn't limited to the ship itself. The texture for the Corbomite Reflector has also been edited and is a lot more clear-cut and defined....and generally cooler. That pretty much sums up this mod; it's better. Just so much better. The only erk with it and I believe it to be a valid one, is that with its new weapons it can become slightly un-balanced (as in Borg killer un-balanced) but what's a Battleship without the ability to kick some ass? This is a [b]must-have[/b] for [b]anyone[/b] who plays this game.
Unfortunatly, this file, like the rest, does not include Multi Vector Assault Mode :'( But its still well worth the download!
editor. I had actually split out the ODF\'s from the main ODF directory for my own usage, so you\'ll find there are additional files in the zip which are for my mod.[/quote]
to download a big mod to do it. How, you ask? Well here it is. A sized down version of the transwarp hub as seen on T.V.(Endgame, Pt.II) It builds hubs like a research station bulids pods. I think it\'s worth its size in download.
that are the Ori Invasion craft that crippled an assembled fleet of Milky Way galaxy ships very quickly and taking little to no damage. The term unstoppable comes to mind in fact. Expect these ships to pack an almighty wallop. Having seen the episode, \"Crusade\", I was curious to look at what had been done to the odfs of the ships and the weapons...these make the stock Fusion Cubes look like cannon fodder. They are immensely powerful in terms of amounts of weapons and the power of them. The only advantage you\'ll have is to hit them incredibly hard, incredibly quickly but be prepared to lose half your fleet in the process. In terms of the rest of the mod, it\'s all great. The model is very accurate with some real sterling textures to go with it. Build button, wireframe and admirals pic now as standard in these mod packs along with all essential details required to get the mod going and beating up everything. My only thoughts are now to what Greathor will produce next...what is there left in the Stargate universe to do?? Stargate fans, you\'ll want this for re-creating the infamous \"Crusade\" scene. Non-Stargate fans, you\'ll want this for a challenge.
also be from Legacy) - it doesn't state in the ReadMe. Regardless, this package is something that everyone needs, it is without a doubt a stunning piece of work. My only fault for the whole thing are the Dilithium Moons, I simply don't like them (not to my taste, and the glows are too much). However, I am unable to fault the rest. So kudos to the folks that made Legacy, and to Yacuzza for putting this together for us. A brilliant and much required addition for any Armada II player ;) - SSA

Included in this version are five missons called \"All New Things\", \"A Price Too High\", \"Aftermath\", \"Warcry\" and \"Onslaught\". All of these mission\'s are rather basic and easy to complete. I hope future versions of this will provide alot more detail and perhaps allow you to almost \"Re-enact\" entire episodes of TNG.
first class, explaining how to install these ships easily for people with no knowledge of modding (simply cut and paste the files provided) and instructions for adding these ships to a modded installation. In fact, this is a perfect example of what a submitted file should look like. Everybody should download this, not only for the contents but for the object demonstration of how to design a user friendly mod that everybody can use.

command if you look near earth =) I am am still shocked in the qualit of this planet/map mod.
intresting placements. Good stuff. ;)
One at the least to a new level (and does well compared to Armada Two). The teaser below, in that download button, will make you think how far the game can be pushed with a full-on effort into mod production and with release due to be some point later this year, we can only wait but the fact that it just seems to get better and better the more you hear about it definitely helps. The other thing I will say, from information provided to me from one of the head developers, is that, the shipyard workers must over-work with the multi-ship production capabilities being able to build offensive, defensive and scientific Nebula class variants at the same time! Trust me, I've had to bite my tongue as to what to say in terms of capabilities, just be excited. Whilst that isn't shown in the teaser though, it does show what can be expected in the opening of the mod in the opening video. No screenshots for this one, just trust me and download it, then look for your nearest copy of Armada 1 and wait, patiently.

Those of you that have been paying attention on the Forums will have seen this ship before, in the thread I created about poly reducing, and then re-releasing her. Everything should be in order with this one, at least, everything I've done. You will need to add it to the Tech Tree & AI Files etc if you expect it to work fully, though for what I've provided, it'll work fairly well with. Again, a ship that I may have in Zero Hour (along with the Achilles), though that is still undecided. I trust those of you that download and use this will get your enjoyment out of it. ;) - Ash
and enter your controlled space. With 6 torpedo launchers and some good defences, you\'re going to need to pack a whollop to take her down. Her textures are very clean along with the model itself and an animation allowing the turrets to actually rotate (a nice feature you\'ll find). The model itself is pretty flawless, so no complaints there. The mod as a package is complete. This means a build button, wireframe, admirals pic etc. For that sake, I believe it is a worthy addition. The station itself is also balanced for play and whilst she is multi-targeting, it has longer reload times than the stock torpedo turret, costs more to build and drains resources. However, you\'re not likely to find better defence in turret terms, so for those who don\'t like to use precious ships defending their base, this one is for you.
you want to make maps, DOWNLOAD! :)
Definatlely makes the feel of the game better, worth a download. (Maybe unless you can\'t be bothered to wait for the large filesize!!)
in the README, if there are any problems contact: firstname.lastname@example.org[/quote]Well, going by the screenshots and what we have in the ReadMe this is (as it stands) an Excelsior Class with the voices of Sulu. Using the model & texture from who I believe is Captian Fingers / Darth Spankey, this should make a nice addition to the TMP hero section ;) - SSA
http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Puddle_Jumper;57622 http://armada2.filefront.com/file/;57856 This version is based on Dkealt and Dave975's [url="http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/Ancient_Alteran_Puddle_Jumper;60863"]Ancient Alteran Puddle Jumper[/url] from Bridge Commander however the Poly count has been drastically reduced to suit Armada2's gameplay. This model stands at a reasonable 1,000 polys instead of the massive 24,711 poly count of the BC version. Even for the poly count reduction the model is very detailed and looks great ingame. For those of you who are not Stargate fans but like the look of this vessel then I suggest using it as a Romulan shuttlecraft. It is fast and highly manoeuvrable so it would fit in nicely as a spybot or drone for covering enemy territory. This vessel would definately look the part alongside a Talon during "cloak and dagger" missions. :) (although the 3 Atlantians in the cockpit isn't very Romulan, so maybe not then :p) [b]- IKS[/b]

DS9 - Dominion Wars. I found that game quite crap to be honest, though some of the ships within were fairly good, this being one of them. Again, if you\'ve enjoyed previous versions of this ship, or liked the DS9 game, then this one would be one to download for your sakes ;) - Ash
started including a model that the tutorial refers to. If your having problems in texturing then this is for you!

a local network site where I live. It has been extensively reworked and adjusted to provide a more challenging, more satisfying AI opponent. This version includes all three Single Player campaigns. In addition, I have reworked the Instant Action AIPs and buildlists as well. No part of the Campaigns was overlooked in the effort to make the missions more rewarding to play. Nothing was left undone to make the Instant Action AI opponents equally challenging. Oh, yeah. Just one more thing. I hope you have as much fun playing this as I did making it. - thunderfoot

mod, for several reasons. Actual canon Species 8472 shots are hard to come by, only Voyager being the real source of 8472 designs. Most of the other 8472 sources are either conceptual or indeed from Armada 2 or Mods of other games, so these upgrades are totally brand new. Initially when I saw the screenshot and the targa's in Adobe I thought this would be the most "inferior" of the A2 upgrades but after playing with them, I WAS PROVEN WRONG.. this is 8472 with a twist - the twist being an armoured-bio fleet which makes the "lined" textures more plausible. The battleship, Frigate, and cruiser stand out as really quality retextures - With the dark grey/black textures on the Battleship and Frigate you could say both of them got "Venom-ed" :p Both are menacing looking and are the "best" of this mod imho. The Launcher, destroyer and scout following the same colour schemes as the stock but are vastly improved, as do the non-combat ships and stations. The Mothership is now a blue texture but I honestly think the "bio-amour" texture doesn't suit it or indeed the Behemoth, but that is only my opinion. It also includes a excellent Splash screen! In totality, this is well worth the download and is a definate improvement on the bland stock texturing.. for pure creativity and what it brings to the table this is probably one of the best of the A2 upgrade packs. About time we got more 8472 mods around this place ;) Get's a :thumbsup: from me [b]- IKS[/b]
inspired space fighter for the Humans, carried by the cruisers and on facilities on Earth and the numerous support stations across the galaxy. Whilst obviously, they lack the sheer power, as a single unit, to take out a large target, when massed, they can cause heavy damage to the target, even if it is a huge Ha\'tak (though probably not Asguard and certainly not the Ori). These would now be ideal to be added to one of the cruisers, say the Prometheus or Odyssey and launched from their hangar bays. In terms of overall mod quality, the model and textures look very close to the originals seen on-screen and do look god, even if you would need a magnifying class to spot the finer details. She comes equipped with a wireframe and a very nice buildbutton but an admiral\'s pic you\'ll have to make (let\'s be honest, it\'s hardly difficult). Generally though, she is certainly a nice ship to have equipped and would be perfect for Stargate fans. Download now.
weapons! Now though, you can simulate the battle from the episode that could ear-mark the end of the galaxy as they know it, or just kick some butt! These ships, even though low poly, look incredibly close to their TV counter-parts and, with higher resoultion textures, I believe will almost look the same. Whilst their design is certainly unique, I would, if I had to put them into a stock race, put them into the Federation. Their weapons look like the Federation deflector dish's and they would just seem to fit, but their weapons, well, no doubt who would win then. Suggested tactics against it would be to knock out her weapons and then pummel her with as much firepower as you can as her hull is strong. Tactics when using, pretty much just build, sit back and relax. Download now for pure galaxy destruction! [b]Do note, spoilers will not be tolerated[/b]
time. Looking at the Enterprise J briefly seen in the Enterprise episode in which is starred, I'd say this is a close resemblance, or at least a very god one concerning the issue of limitations of quality due to this being Armada and not Bridge Commander, for example. It still looks good, especially as an Enterprise. Part of the Monarch set, the "Monarch Class", "Enterprise J" and "Monarch Refit", all three ships can be in your game at the same time (though you might want to change the odf for this ship to include the line about it being a hero, so it stands out a little more) which I think allows for more versatile gameplay. In terms of the performance of the three craft though, all are very powerful but this one against the Monarch refit would be very close. Whilst the J loses on other aspects, she is strong in others including system hitpoints. So, whilst she might not have as much hull life, if the J got a lucky strike into the Monarch Refit's systems, she would win. The only way to really try this out would be to put them against each other...which you can only do if you've downloaded them!

much less powerfull than the Asgard and Ori warships, both of which are much further advanced. As you can see from the screenshots below this model has been done to a very high standard.

the moment. [b]- TParis[/b]
the second Earth ship with it's primary mission to go to the Pegasus galaxy to assist the Atlantis team, be it scientific or military. The model, whilst converted, look's pretty good and the textures do appear to be a little accurate but wouldn't hurt by being slightly higher in resolution to 512*512 instead of the 256*256 it currently stands at. The rail gun weapons are also modified Federation pulse phasers but I doubt it will matter too much to affect your game play. I thoroughly recommend downloading this if you have the other various Stargate craft there are on this site, then put them into the special Stargate maps we have (it's what I'd probabaly do!) and then fly your goodies into combat against the baddies whilst listening to your S-G1 soundtrack. Anyhow, I think this is a good ship but doesn't seem, in my eyes, as good as CDP's other creations. Nevertheless, still worthy of a download, which I suggest you do now. A texture upgrade can now be found at this location: http://armada2.filefront.com/file/;58283 [b][u][i]With the mention of ships in the readme (of the BC-304 series), please do not reveal any plot devices that could ruin it for viewers who either do not live in America, don't have sky or anything else and are forced to wait for their Stargate good-ness. Thank you for this consideration.[/u][/b][/i]
is missing a significant amount of Bitmaps. However, overall this seems like a worthy package. The developers (or at least one of them) to my knowlege is away for a while, so when we get the official release is unknown, though it\'s sure to be something spectacular. My only fault without actually playing it is the fact \"Peaceful Generations\" doesn\'t really go well with an RTS game based upon War Still, a nice package, plenty of ships (I notice a Romulan / Klingon starbase merge from I think it be Bridge Commander has been included). Anyway, one to download for sure Important Notice: [quote]In the readme above it says something about a 2nd installer i forgot to make the installer for the base so you will have to cut and paste the fbase.sod into the sod folder. I would make a installer for it but since im in Hawaii my time is limited and it took me 1 hour and 30 mintues to upload to my server for some reason. Well anyway placed the sod file in in the sod folder is easy enough 8p[/quote] - SSA
just don\'t expect one of these to go toe-to-toe with one of them because it\'ll be simply obliterated. That would obviously be a shame for such a finely done ship here by Greathor. It\'s set-up for being a scout with a quick build time, few resources and low defence rating but do not underestimate these in groups as like any swarm, they can be absolutely deadly. Talking about the quality of the mod, it certainly looks good and is a decent replica of the on-screen CGI version. It comes with a build button, wireframe and admiral\'s pic which also up-hold its quality. There isn\'t that much more to say on this. It\'s good, by all means, but perhaps just lacking that \"wow\" factor to make it really stand out. Regardless, for Stargate fans, this\'ll be a must have and for non-Stargate fans...if you want a cargo ship to blow-up...you\'ll be wanting this.
commander, and the same goes for A2. A very nice, detailed ship this is.
built at the advanced Klingon construction yard and the Fighter is built by the Ogla.
outside your enemy's base and building your attack fleet from there :)). I guess when the going gets tough you can always move the shipyard to a safer location or as I stated above use it as a mobile frontline repair base and a staging grounds for attacks (It can build a nice range of ships including the Sovereign). The model itself is quite impressive especially the animiation physics . The shipyard compresses itself when ordered to move location morphing itself into a very cool ship - kinda looks like a capital gunship when in this mode. It's combat speed and impulse speed are comparable to the normal speeds for a battleship thus it can move quite sharply so it is quite balanced. As for the model's quality, the textures and the detail are superb. This is one of the best mods i've seen in a while , without a doubt. Definately worth having this in your game. :) [b]- IKS[/b]

Nice premice, and definetly worth a download :)
new version promises new levels of thoroughness, logically. Major changes from the version 1.0 release include the following: - Readme now includes an instruction step detailing how to avoid the race number/instantActionSlot problem. - Freighters will now mine latinum. - Shipyard and Advanced Shipyard now have different build costs. - A cargo ship has been added. - A trading station has been added. - An upgrade research station has been added. - A colony ship (with pod) has been added. - Research station(s) will no longer have the spider box in is centre. - Pulse phaser texture now included. - Hardpoint error causing ships to be built outside of yards now fixed. - Special weapons now assigned to ships. Download this one even if you have yet to discover the awesomeness of this mod. :cool:
at the mysterious race, - the terrifying Scimitar, enemy dreadnought, - the first time Romulans have fought WITH Starfleet since, well, possibly ever. Nobody\'s touched the Scimitar in a good long time, with the exception of the recent Reman Rebellion full race addon (which is really, really good). Now k_merse gives us both the Scimitar and the Norexan class Imperial Romulan Warbird Valdore, both seen in Nemesis. And has he ever done both Shinzon and Commander Donatra proud. The results are pretty spectacular, and totally worth the otherwise outsize download. Most of the size of what you get (in a fancy self-extractor) is new sound files for the Scimitar AND for the Valdore. All that in addition to all the normal stuff you\'d expect in a mod like this, like wireframes and admiral\'s log pics. The Star Empire should be proud. The only downside? No new special weapons. Both the Valdore and Scimitar rely exclusively on stock weapons. And the Scimitar hits well below the belt compared to what you might expect from the Enterprise-E\'s technical readouts in the film. She\'s a predator, all right. Get this one today. :cool:
(respectively). It's been incredibly well re-created with some brilliant textures (look really closely and you can actually see people inside the front window!) and a nicely done mesh. Whilst not being overloaded with weapons (or any type of shield for that matter), she can survive a light attack before submitting to defeat. Do not under estimate her though, she is of Ancient design afterall. Recommended use would be as a scout ship, or a sceince ship for whichever race you put it in for. Honestly, it makes sense to put it with the Federation and more human race, however those of you with customized game's including possibly an SG-1 Human or Ancient/Atlantian side, this will be ideal for you. It even comes complete with an admiral's pic and build button. Again, good job, download now. You can download a small odf fix from here: http://armada2.filefront.com/file/;57856
design! This design uses the stock Federation cargo textures, which do \"seem\" enhanced from what I can tell. The design is creative whilst keeping low poly (already a thumbs up) and just generally does the Asguard justice. She\'s been equipped with Asguard weaponary, so she shouldn\'t go down without a fair fight and a half. She\'s also been assigned to the Species 8472 side, as, Cylon cleverly pointed out in the email, \"i made it species 8472 as they only have 1 piolet like asgaurd and sound a bit like them\" So, why wait for Stargate filled action battles now? Download this and fire away!
unintentionally travels 90 years to the future. Basically based on the stock Miranda from SFC with a few alterations and additions. Quite a nice ship.
with a very angry ODF. The downside is the lack of alpha maps on the otherwise excellent model. I reccomend a download for anyone that likes Voyager.
carry some fighters and bombers needed to fight off Goa'uld and such like? Well, obviously it's this! Whilst I can't immediately tell if it's a kitbash, this new Human (Stargate) design looks pretty decent and look's to be a suitable carrier, well, to quote CDP, "in the stargate mod that is currently being produce, this will lunch f-302's and a bomber type fighter, however, i dnt wana give away too much. lol" The design works for me well, as it actually looks like a carrier and when the mod is out, will obviously act as one, so I guess you could call this a teaser of the mod. Anyhow, the textures are the standard we have seen on the other capital ships and she is in scale with them. Her weapons are from what I can tell the same, so she'll be pretty compatible with your other Stargate ships. In addition to this, it even comes with a nicely done buildbutton and comprehensive installation instructions. All in all, as expected good job. Kudo's to you CDP!
moons). I’ve used this earlier in the week due to having access of it through Yacuzza, and I can tell you from personal use, it is something breathtakingly good ;) – If we had more people who had this kind of talent, Armada II would be something of the future Anyhow, download is a must! - SSA
StarfleetKid has said most of what could have been said in the Firefly\'s description but I have to say this is one of my favourite mods for Armada 2, I think he did incredible justice to the Firefly with an extremely well detailed and high quality model with superbly realistic textures. Now due to Wildcard\'s good spirit you can work on the Firefly mesh yourself with this Mesh pack. This pack includes the MS3D meshes used for the Firefly Class Transport so you can kitbash, merge, weld, rip..etc to your hearts content. A nice present for those out there who may want to get into modelling. :rock: - [b]IKS[/b]
by BookBurner) is that I\'ve only heard of it right before I was about to upload this file, but will be sorted in a later small hotfix. Screenshot aren\'t included as you\'ll know what the mod looks like as there\'s screenshots already in the main V1.0 release. I apologise for all the hassle this may cause but at least you will have a better game. :)[/quote] Anything that makes a great full-race mod even better is awesome as far as I\'m concerned. It\'s like roller skates on a grizzly bear. Or, more famously, \"sharks..... with FRICKIN\' LASER BEAMS!\" Download this if you\'ve got the Reman Rebellion goin\' down already. Otherwise we\'ve got nothin\' for you. ;) :cool:
what we already have in Armada. Yes they're high poly and have big textures, but my gosh do they look like they're going to tear through some Cardassians! Whilst the download size might be daunting, it's explainable as you're not downloading 2 ships, but 5! You have the standard Galaxy class ala TNG alongside the phaser nacelle variant seen in DS9. The Nebula's get it better though as you have the Melbourne warp nacelle variant, the weapons pod of the Sutherland and the sensor pod of the Phoenix. I actually think the Nebula's look that bit better than the Galaxy's, but that's not to say the dreadnaughts don't look nice, because they really do. Balance is also not an issue. Whilst it might be taxing on the very weakest of PC's, these ships fit perfectly in to the stock game however the additions do lack wireframes, and Ai script, there are plenty available to already get a hold of. Also, stock weapons are still the same, along with every other statistic, special weapons have been distributed. Now, the Nebula's play less of an over-view special weapons ship and require more management. The Galaxy's are given the Engineering team special, whilst each of the Nebula's has the other 3 specials catered to their unique design. Add to that canon names for all the ships, you really do have a great mod. This is certainly recommendable. [i](Note, also includes admiral's pic images for the previously released Cardassian Galor and Keldon classes)[/i] -J7
is just me. Overall a nice ship and worth downloading ;)
when you play it ;) Enjoy. This Replaces stuff so back up your files, it was tested on stock 1.1 a2. My File So all you can rate it.
Help your allies, retreat your ships back to your base and make a surgical strike against the enemy as you've gated off again. The concept is good, albeit slightly overpowering for the race you add it in (the install instructions are for the Federation but you could put it in any of the Alpha quadrant races really). So, what are you waiting for - it look's pretty cool with the way the wormhole fits perfectly in the mini-ring-gates. Only biggy is the lack of a builbutton, wireframe or admiral's log. Still, it's a station and if you mass produce this...well you wouldn't need to, you have mass produceable wormholes afterall!

the Enterprise-E with elements from the design of newer ships like the Nova and Intrepid. The result, designed originally for Bridge Commander, has been a vessel long-coveted for Armada II. And now, thanks to k_merse, that ship is finally ours for the modding. Be forewarned, though: The poly count is a bit high (~6800). And the textures are monstrously huge. All of which spells \"slowdown\" if you\'re not paying close attention or if you\'re running a computer older than a certain age. Scale down the textures if you need to, \'cause otherwise things might get a little choppy if you put too many of these out in space. However, in game, she handles beautifully. The understated grace of this design is all too copiously evident. It\'s like poetry with warp engines. Oh, and she\'s more than capably armed to deal with anything that gets in her way. No doubt some of you will be looking to upgrade her weapons straight away. Best of all, this is the complete package. Newer style of build button, high-resolution wireframe, a nice Admiral\'s Log pic.... all in a self-installer. I give k_merse top marks across the board here. I\'m sure you\'ll find it\'s well-deserved. The only complaint I can offer is the presence of the registry on the hull, since I know some here like their registry-free starships (for spamming purposes). For those of us with high-end machines, the bigger textures will no doubt be appreciated. But maybe a \'low\' texture variant might be a good thing to consider for those who can\'t re-size \'em.... This is as close to a centrefold as we\'re ever going to offer here at A2Files. So take a good long look at this beauty. And download it NOW. - the Kid :cool:
however. This is a nice little file, worth the download.
When fused there is a large hole in one of the sides of it that looks that is can fit a sphere in it. If you can do this and send us a screenshot we will be thankful
It\'s just a modified physics file. Nothing fancy but it never hurts to release a mod for the first time. Welcome to the A2Files community, as1. - the Kid :cool:
is a great ship to add to your Klingon armada .
one if you like a challenge :)
the playing field: The pre-TOS Federation and their Romulan counterparts. They are all cannon scaled to the other stock races, which means that you’ll be dealing with several ships the size of a shuttle. They have weapon loadouts on a cannon scale, which means that they are a match for their counterpart, but, a single ship from any of the other races can wipe out half of a fleet. I took an eight fleet armada of pre feds against the feds from Ghosts comp mod, and my armada was picked off by the star base. The shield didn’t drop below 50% on any of their ships or stations, and then I gave up. Because of their total weakness, they can be wiped out by a nebula in one to two seconds. The resource costs do compensate for this, as your largest ship costs less than a stock defiant class. Also, the AI in the demo was not complete, as the enemy sat there with a base and a construction and proceeded to do nothing until I wiped them out. Also, the new races did not include race sounds, so there are no voice-overs. The worst part was that that you needed to manually install every file by hand. This causes a lot of frustration and a large margin of error, but, if you’re skilled enough, this can make the mod compatible with other mods. Enough of the bad. Now on to the good. This mod is one of the best I’ve played in a long time. The ships were from an era never before done to any extent, and the realism I felt was very high. For those of you that ever read the novel [b]Starfleet: Year One[/b], this is a great recreation of that era. In my personal scale, I’d rate this demo just below the Borg Incursion series. I’m not going to give away too much of the game play, but this mod adjusts it from a “build strategically” to a “build lots of easily destroyed ships.” In other mods, this would be a downfall, but in this one, it properly reflects the idealism of the races. This is a great mod that I recommend to everyone that frequents this site. It takes a lot of work to install, but this is well worth the work. The worst part of this mod is that it will never be finished. If you’re going to download one mod this month, download this. Added author's upon request Description by Ch'Yu Chen: This mod is a simulation of Masao Okazaki's ideas of the romulan war.(http://www.starfleet-museum.org/) The highest priority is simulation and realism ,not fun, action or anything else. You can't compare this mod to others, this one is different and you can't play against races from other mods, because your ships are old and weak and you'll lose. Maybe I'll make an arcade-Version with increased ship-Power for playing against other races. I didn't included race sounds, but I've made some. You can download stupid german SIW-sounds ("Sinnlos im Weltraum") separately, called [file="31932"]German Voice Patch[/file]. The romulan war has nothing to do with 'Enterprise'. This mod is not planned to be finished.
redone by the ImpSPCam Team. This was developed and tested with Patch 1.1 applied along with a Single Player Officer limit of 750. Some members of the team also had the A2 Physics Project installed during testing, since all of this was supposed to be a part of that project. It is suggested, but not required, these conditions be in place for use of this mod. It may work with your personal install but it has not been tested that way. ImpSPCam contains the following things. Improved AIPs based upon the ideas and concepts of Achilles and Freyr. Bigger maps using what the stock game contains to enhance the lighting and backgrounds. Clearer, more concise Objectives screens. Improved techtrees to give the AI, and the player, access to special weapons earlier and more often. No longer do the Borg fail to use their most efficient weapons systems. Consider yourself warned. A few small surprises are also included. No, we will not tell you what they are here. That would spoil the surprise, would it not? And those in the know already best not be spoiling things for the others, either. Go play the missions and find out. ImpSPCam also includes a special set of AIPs done by that master of online play, Freyr. Most people are unaware (or have willfully chosen to ignore) that Freyr is a gamer first and modder second. He has attempted to get the AI to emulate his own style of play. He has been largely successful in this. These AIPs will be in a separate folder marked "Freyr's Extra Spicy AIPs". This Folder can be found in the Bonus Materials Section. Be warned, these have all the pity and weakness surgically removed. Team members have been known to run and hide whenever Freyr suggests we try them. The ImpSPCam Team accepts no responsibilty or liability for any permanent, irreversible brain damage caused by using Freyr's AIPs. As to play balance, this is an issue we decided early on not to concern ourselves with. A desperate battle against impossible odds with little hope of survival, let alone victory, is something all true warriors enjoy. These AIs will come for you very hard from the moment you tap the Spacebar. Freyr's AIs are even more elegantly lethal. Live free, die well, and may the bards sing of your selfless sacrifice for a thousand generations. For those of you who are not up to the challenge, the file contains backups for all ten Federation Missions. So you can restore your game to the safer, easier Stock Missions. The backups are also included to allow you to restore your A2 install, in case something goes wrong. The ImpSPCam Team are: Ameba, Chiletrek, darylukeh, delta-dids, Exodus_499, Freyr, StarFox1701, The Joelteon 7, the StarFleet Kid, thunderfoot006(Team Leader) The Team did all the hard work. The Team came up with all the good ideas. The Team members deserve all the recognition. Me? I was the Team Go-Fer. Whenever the real modders on the Team needed someone to do simple stuff, that was my job. Otherwise, I just sat there being quiet. The Team would like to extend a very large thank you to Achilles here. His gracious permission to examine and use his ideas and concepts gave this project the perfect start. The ImpSPCam Team will also re do the Klingon and Borg Campaigns as well. Release date on these two is TBA. Any problems or concerns will be answered in the Forum thread for this mod or the Comments Section below. The Team respectfully asks that the Forum thread be the place to address problems, due to the limited functionality of the Comments section of the Downloads page. We will still answer questions there, however.
Scout Cube. The save function stays disabled though. [b]- TParis[/b]
race. Do note, the poly count's do vary to some low ones to moderate-high ones however a bit of odfing by myself and SuperStarAsh has taken this into account, so you don't need to worry about that! Included are four Federation ships, one Dominion destroyer (put in the Cardassian side), one Cardassian counter-Defiant ship, one Romulan science scout and one fearsome Klingon battleship: Federation Challenger Class - A two nacelle (Akula configuration) patrol ship with a steady armament based off the Galaxy class as a possible escort. As the larger ship required no escort, the Challenger was pushed back to more remedial tasks. The ship is good as a scout ship or destroyer in game but has been equipped with cruiser weaponry. Federation Niagra Class - A prototype that was built for the possible Borg incursions into Federation territory, although badly damaged in the battle of Wolf 359, in the cleanup of the site, the ship held together better then first scanned by the Enterprise and further models were built. Designed off the Ambassador class, she has three nacelles and is equipped with frigate weaponry. A nice ship to have alongside your Challanger, the two complement each other well. Federation Cardiff Class - Based off the Akira design, the ship uses latest Federation sensor technology and Vulcan warp technology to produce a design capable of going at high speed's and tracking ships along the Romulan border. What stand's this ship out from the rest is the annular warp nacelle(s) which make it quite a sight. Equipped with frigate weaponry, she has a decent sensor range. Federation Sapphire Class - Beautiful design based off Atolm's "Eden" class. The ship has been equipped with Sovereign weaponry and should be feared. Nothing else to say, it's THAT good. Dominion Virulent Attack Cruiser - A stunning design based off of the Attack bug you see so commonly in DS9, equipped with powerful weaponry, it is best you use multiple ships to take one of these down. She is beatable though but with a ship that look's that good, you wouldn't mind losing to it. Cardassian Kondal Class - An intriging design for a new Cardassian ship whilst co-inciding with standard Cardassian design. She look's good and is designed to counter the Defiant. Whether or not this is possible I don't know, but you can always try it out and I suggest you do. Romulan Science Craft - Refit a Talon and get this slightly larger, far more useful craft. Seen in the TNG episode "The Defector", she has a sensor palette on her aft quarter used for conducting scientific studies without the need for the larger D'Deridex. A neat little design which has some interesting features and generally a good bit of fun for playing about with in-game. Klingon ChoQ'Batlh Battleship - Wowzers. What happens when you get a D7 and then make it Negh'Varish? I can happily tell you it's this beast. Comparable to the Negh'Var, she is indeed powerful, dominating and Klingon. Look's good using a high detailed 512 texture set and is a must have for any Klingon armada. [i]If you have encountered any errors while using these ships, please contact myself or Ash, [b]NOT[/b] MaP as he didn't edit the text files. Thank you.[/i]

and klingons. I have also creates a new subspace weapon. The new ships are built by their own shipyard that needs a trading station to be constructed. [/quote]
with quite a few others, the Pegasus variant of the Achilles Class Stargate Dreadnaught looked as if it had more charm, more grace and a bit more awesomeness tucked away in its textures. I can assure you, that definitely haven't changed. In fact, it seems each of those factors has been dramatically enhanced with this equal-high-quality version of the [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Achilles_Class_Milky_Way_Variant;67129"]Milky Way variant.[/url] This ship, like that one, boasts some very nice new features, including additional polys used to make the design more independent, including the "base"-flat thing on top of the design standing out more than the [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Achilles_Class_Atlantis_Retrofit;67067"]original retrofitted version.[/url] Simply, it's a texture upgrade over the other high quality design, but what a variant! Same problems as the other though, involving the lack of a wireframe, build button and admiral's pic which I assure you is the only downfall of the mod. I seriously suggest those who feel higher poly models aren't a problem get this immediately because it's just oh-so-good to look at in-game. It's real dominating sight, then again, it's a dreadnaught; it's supposed to do that! Stargate fans, there's no but to this, download this ship immediately!
than countless updates after update etc. Regardless, once again, a nice modification that (as it has been said in every release so far) should be downloaded by stargate fans. - Ash
there hasn't been that much of a change of the preferred Armada Prometheus of choice. That however may now change. Bridge Commander can bless us with some truly innovative designs, it can also provide the chance for someone to do nice looking versions of craft that you may not be able to get away with in other games (such as an RTS game...called Armada) but what if you reduced its resource want and converted it to Armada? Would that not look awesomely awesome? Well...errr, make up your mind with the pics below! Whilst not odf'd to be as strong as Deemon's version (something of a battlecruiser) this cruiser fits into stock with being quite resource heavy, but packs an almighty punch with weapons the same as the stock Sovereign. Whilst that may not sound like much (remember, stock Galaxy is superior to the Sovereign) on a cruiser, this would make it among the most powerful, if those damn Sphere's didn't regenerate! Anyhow, this is a nice full pack, looks lovely and caters for all your Prometheus needs. Definitely a worthy download.
looks Cardassian. The textures are perfect, because they have the look of the stock ships, but they are very well made. This ship made by Achilles is [b]well[/b] worth a download. It is rare when I give a mod a perfect 10, but deserves it.
the last one and the one before, then you'll be wanting this one as well. -Freyr (description from a butchered version of Ash's review on 1.2 yesterday)
The result, along with some finely done nacelle and impulse spire glows makes for a re-make of a classic and brilliant ship. As seemingly normal with Greathor\'s stuff, unfortunately there is no build button, admiral\'s pic or wireframe for this beauty of a ship re-make, so you\'ll either have to use old stuff or make some of your own. Its odf though makes it very powerful against stock stuff and includes custom weaponry which you\'ll most likely have to change to fit in with the game. I recommend reducing its build time, health and hitpoints and giving it weapons equal to that of an Akira. If you\'re adding this into the stock game, she should probably go into your advanced yard, in front of the Aegian but underneath your Galaxy class (just make sure it is a little bit stronger than the Akira). If this is going into a customised game, then I you\'ll want to put it again, alongside next your Akira (or underneath your Ambassador class if you have one). Irregardless of where it should go, I recommend downloading it, now!
chance to add some seriously fantastic looking re-texture work from A2Files' resident expert on the subject. All .ODFs (balanced to stock) and .SODs are included, along with buildbuttons and admirals' log pics. This pack includes the following ships: Aegian Class by Dan1025 Akira Class by Aad Moerman Centaur Class by SB34 Constellation Class by Fireball_IV Constitution TOS-XI Hybrid by Fahres Forerunner by Aad Moerman Luna by k_merse Renegade by SB34 Ronin by Aad Moerman The included Constitution re-texture uses the "JJPrise" textures by WileyCoyote, as you've no doubt seen in the forums. That on its own would be one of our most downloaded files-- but with the rest thrown in, you get one hell of a lot of awesomeness in one .ZIP file. Download this one right now. :cool:
have been many of the stations the Federation created in and around the orbit of planets. Now, my only fault for this file, is that it doesn't actually come with a screenshot (it has an Admirals Log picture) but that doesn't count. Looking from that however, you can see what appears to be ocean, and land on the inside of the complex. Quite extraodinary if I may say so. :) A job well done, by far ;) - Ash
revised Warzone map. This map will also only work wth Concept:Future installed, so I'm willing to bet some of these stations will be pretty damn powerful, so be fore-warned. Download if you want to defeat your enemy using ships and technology from every race!
ga's, di's and durr's. Needless to say, it's pretty lame. What isn't lame is this fantastic mod. I'm not just saying that either because I've played the worldwide phenomenon of "Halo", this truly is a great addition to the Armada 2 universe. Without going into details, the Forerunner's are a mysterious race in the Halo universe who created 'Halo's', giant ring-shaped platforms in space that had the capability to destroy all life in the galaxy of a certain level to stop the growth of the devastating enemy known only as "The Flood". What is known about the Forerunner's is that they are mysterious. Interesting or what, huh? The thing is, the mysticism portrayed of the Forerunner's in Halo 1 and 2 is carried over in this mod. Nothing about them is normal. They do not play like a normal race, to which my surprise, made them rather difficult to play as. Forget about being a master of the stock game, this is a completely different challenge. With only a few structures and a whole 3 combat ships to build (granted, build 4 of the former 2 type's and you can use them to become something considerably more powerful and the latter has absolutely no combat weapons whatsoever) the race, when observed, will make you think of playing in a completely different style. Granted I tried the mod at various stages to wok out a few kinks, it took me a couple of restarts to get my resource management in-tune. To play as this race, you need to throw away the manual and think on your feet. The basics: The race, as termed by those playing the game in multiplayer, would be called a 'late' race. It is not for some time that the Forerunner's become a threat able to easily destroy the enemy. At the start, they are obscenely easy to eliminate; their starbase is the weakest base when compared to the stock races and it takes a lot of time to build up the resources to be able to put down a few essential turrets (I'd say 3-6 depending on the importance of the location). Give this race time to bloom (I'm not kidding when I say time) and you've got a threat unlike none other seen. Use the annoying Monitor to find the enemy base and disable all weapons of defences whilst your fused Sentinel's warp in and unleash several beams of hell on the enemy. Don't give them the chance. Not to mention the ultimate super weapon: activating the Halo, but more on this later. Resource management is pivotal to getting this race anywhere. I really cannot emphasise this enough. You'll note that when first clicking on the starbase, it has resource converting capabilities. Do not pass on this. You WILL need it. Dilithium mining is done very quickly by your mining sentinel's and as I discovered, you can have 6 around one moon, but need two refineries (each complete with its own weapons for basic defence), one north-west of the moon and another to the south/south-west. You'll need this going on at least 2 moon's (infinite resources on planets and moon's isn't such a bad idea) to get your economy going, whilst in the mean-time, you'll have you construction ship building more refineries, the shipyard's and defences' while also clicking on your starbase to convert your collected dilithium to metal to build said stations. Sound's complicated? It is. It's also very fun. '1 ship for the price of 4'. As mentioned previously, your combat Sentinel's are what provides you with victory. For a considerable metal cost, you can fuse them into mighty battleship's that can easily hold their own against ships of the same classification. Do note though, whilst they might seem indestructible against solo ships, they're not at all. Granted, fewer of these 'battleships' are needed than other race's 'battleships' to take down a base, but send one in by itself and it will be eliminated. Simple as. Likewise your scout and general mischievous toy, the Monitor, isn't indestructible. A fleet's worth of concentrated fire will take it down. Building one again isn't so much a problem obviously, but do not overestimate the strength. That being said, have 16 fused Sentinel's and the enemy base will by all means go bye-bye. If you can't afford the resources for fusion, then a horde of Sentinel's by themselves will deliver a good amount of damage, but doubtful enough to take down a base. The advanced: Halo. The weapon capable of destroying life with ease is in here, granted its area 'slightly' reduced to make it not completely devastating. The Halo is actually multi-purpose though. It (what seems like finally) provides you with mining capabilities, but also unleashes hell. Any ships unfortunate to be in its ray of firing will be devoid of life. What does this mean? It means, an enemy fleet sent to take it out better take it out quickly otherwise they'll need to have some assault ships standing by to beam aboard and take control of all the ships again before the Ferrengi come by and steal them. Of course, this isn't limited to just one. So long as there is a planet, you can build a Halo and the range of effect is pretty high. If skilful enough to build a Halo in a planet orbiting the enemy's base...well, sufficed to say, it'd be like a ghost town. The Halo itself is armed with light weapons. Should a battleship venture too close, it will however have enough time to make a retreat before being destroyed. 'Research makes the ring go round'. Unfortunately, your Halo is pretty much a glorified mining station until you have researched the painfully long and costly wave weapon. In the mean time, research of the more powerful Onyx Sentinel's as a replacement for the basic combat Sentinel's can take place, along with general system upgrades, to which weapons and engines should be a priority, followed by shields. Without research, you're going nowhere. Granted this makes little difference to the other races, it's more important for the Forerunner's as they desperately need the additional power from weapons and movement from engines to speed up everything. Defence isn't always having the best offence. The Forerunner's, whilst their independent mining stations have weapons, along with the starbases, are fairly weak. They really do need substantial protection for operations to carry on. To get their resources though, they need to expand, making construction ships be needed all the time. When you've finally got your resources set-up in a way that you are finally happy with, they'll need all the weapons they can get a hold of as a shield. With no sensor stations, apart from the mobile Monitor, you'll have no warning to an attack, so preparation is needed. Don't rely on the weapons of the mining stations to save you. If a fleet wanted to, they'd easily destroy your operations and force you to drastically reconsider your resources. Likewise applies. If you're playing against the Forerunner's, disrupting their resources and taking advantage of undefended areas will cripple them. Do it at the right point and you'll have them sitting duck's. The conclusion: The mod is genuinely very fun. Whilst taking time to manage resources and build your fleet, to activating Halo(s) upon an enemy attack, there are lots of parts that make it very cool. Take for example the subtle touch of having mini-Sentinel's as the mini-builders for installations, launching from the back of the larger Sentinel construction craft. In fact, the only problem for this mod is the lack of a certain Forerunner battleship seen at the end of Halo 2. Whilst obviously its power unknown, it would've been a nice addition to make the race just a little bit more varied. That's not to say the race is boring to play as. It might seem that playing with the same ships just coloured differently would get boring, it really doesn't. It provides a worthwhile challenge to both play as and against while at the same time looking great. Halo fans will most definitely be interested in it and people looking for something a little different will seek out mod's like this to download and play. All in all, fantastic.

who want convincing, this thoroughly detailed and concise guide shows you how to easily produce the three interface features: build buttons, wireframes and then the admirals pics. Whilst possibly easy for the more knowledgeable modders, this is a sure way to get those who want help in this area, or perhaps to brush up on what they already know, to get complete ship mods. Definitely worthy of the download, it comes in an installer, which be forewarned, is in german however the rest isn't and the installer isn't actually that complicated. You'll need to use your internet broswer quite a bit for this (I recommend you set up multiple windows) and have paint open so you can look at the many refernce pics. All in all, a great help for the community, nicely put together and generally of high quality, well done!
further reduced to 2532. Previously reported mesh problems have also been solved. Furthermore, this version comes with a whole new set of textures, far more detailed than before. They look just as good as on the show, although they look better in darker maps. While they also have no speculars, but nonetheless, they are more accurate than previous textures. But aside from the model, new weapons (thanks to Ragnar) give a more authentically SG-1 performance to this ship. Missiles and railguns alike are now this vessel\'s armaments, just like you\'d expected. peanutbutter points out that \"I have made the missile contrails blue, otherwise, it is difficult to distinguish raigun fire from the missiles, and like i had mentioned in the last readme, i am a lazy guy, and can\'t be bothered to go through the sprites tutorial.\" Either way, they look pretty good to me. There\'s also a speed boost special weapon, with its speed decreased to avoid going in constant circles. It\'ll only turn the crew into chunky salsa that way. wink This one\'s a must-have for SG-1 fans out there. I know you\'re many, and so I\'d hope will be the number of downloads for this awesome looking model. :cool:
technology exchange. Warp drive and cloaking devices are already in use on these Romulan vessels.[/quote]
much of Atlantis, thus am unaware as to whether the Prometheus was ever shown on that show. Anyway, these aren't game-compatible (at least, not as of yet). They are only Meshes, and do need hardpointing and suchlike (something that I may even be tempted to do myself, given time). I can't fault the textures of these, and the poly counts are both within game limitations. - x303 Poly Count: 1300 - x304 Poly Count: 2062 As with a lot of Major Paynes models, these are poly reductions of some much higher polied models for Starfleet Command. Anyway, if your a Stargate Fan, then you'll want these two models (ok, so you have to get them into the game yourself - this proving easier for some people than others) but think of it as a unique challenge. I also took the liberty of taking some screenshots in MS3D, I know how everyone likes to see what they're getting. - Ash
the ability to distroy 1000 ships in a single seccond (so it could wipe out the entire United Federation of Planets in about, what, 3.5 or somthing? :D ) As the readme says this is [i]technicly[/i] a Station and has a shipyard classlable so it has been classified under Stations instead of ships. Its armorments are a 9 LPH Phaser of short,medium and long range, two long range disruptor torpedos class OmegaLH and Omega MH, 6 standard borg phaser of short and medium range, Omega Shields sistem, Deathstar long range phaser, Transwarp drive, Death Star Super Laser, Detect Cloak, Super Assimilator and Tetraneutron Torpedo. Damn :D check it out. It also comes in a nice and easy to use installer ;)

their way home at last, with a little help from the future, the Borg, and a neurolytic pathogen. Mmmmmm, technobabble. Part of the advanced modifications made by Admiral Janeway to Captain Janeway\'s vessel included the transphasic torpedo (already released on this site, and very nifty), but also hull armour for the Voyager. This hull armour made the difference when the Voyager cut its way through the Borg, costing Admiral Janeway her life, but thankfully not Captain Janeway nor the crew. Everyone made it home. Well, except for Neelix. He already was home. Anyway, dan1025 has gone to considerable lengths to give us MRJOHN\'s Armoured Intrepid model, originally released for Bridge Commander. There are two .SOD files available. One (which you could use for a hero-ship Voyager) stands around 4400 poly, while the other (useful for standard Intrepid class ships, with armour) about 2400. (This, of course, begs the question of why Starfleet wouldn\'t use armour on ALL Federation starships after Voyager\'s return.... which leads to awkward questions about Nemesis.... and the Enterprise-J.... and basically everything post-VOY. And nobody wants to go there yet. Not even Paramount.... though we desperately wish they would already!!!) This mod is fully and completely what we hope for here at A2Files. Along with the double-.SOD, there\'s high res textures, a full complement of .ODF files, build buttons and special weapon buttons, a wireframe and an Admiral\'s Log pic. All you need to do is install the mod, and then add the weapon to your Intrepid Class. The mod uses a fusion weapon so you can deploy and retract the armour at will. Note that the armour prevents you from having any shields. The .ODFs are balanced to make the armour fairly realistic, all things considered. (One would think, given this limitation, that the Borg would\'ve solved their Voyager problem by simply beaming a whole platoon of drones on board and having them assimilate everyone and everything on board. But never mind. Thinking too much again.) Anyway, this is a spectacular mod, worthy of your highest attentions, ESPECIALLY if you\'re a Voyager fan. Download this one now! :cool:
Units. :) - SSA
which it is when looking at all of them :D VERY nice job!
and very worthy of a closer look in-game. Download these beauties right now. :cool:
might as well post it here. Nice job competitor :rolleyes: Anyway, this is that excellent movie that I posted pics of in the news thread. It's definetly worth downloading :)
\"canon\" either. Something New we have! ;) - SSA
your probably not going to notice it to much! This is a nice addition to the growing stargate armada we have here, and I think at this point its only a matter of time before we see some stargate (TC) mods coming out.
able to stop them (hurrah!) and this ship was the common Replicator ship used. Mesh wise, for the low amount of poly\'s it is (792 for those interested) it means that you will be able to have a good horde of these and I do believe it\'s pretty accurate. The \"blue\" of the texture seems about right and the texture seems accurate bar I beleived that it was slightly darker, more of a black rather then of a grey. Generally, a very nicely done ship containing a buildbutton and admiral\'s pic, though I think the latter could be improved with a space background rather then the grey of the programme background. Other then that, a good job on what looks like to be a job well done!
screenshots, teasers and ships leading up to a full release. This had little to cause any expectations of it being released. True, there were some screenshots released... But that was in 2008. Avon says that he started this off when he was \"laid up in bed ill\" back then, and after tinkering with it occasionally he recently decided to finish it off and release it. So, what do we have? Well, you\'ve got the obligatory full set of ships and stations required to call this a race mod. The Hirogen like capturing things, and boy do they have a setup well suited to doing that. I suppose I shouldn\'t really spoil it, but the Hirogen have a special weapons outfit for capturing that puts the Klingons and the Borg combined to shame without being massively overpowered. They do balance in with the other stock races reasonably well. Also, thanks to the fact that some of the heavy warships that your likely to have with you in a battle are equipped with the tractor beam you actually do stand some prospect of keeping prizes taken from the enemy. In addition to the high quality models & textures on the ships, there is also a pretty nice GUI as you can see from the screenshots, along with music, admirals log pictures, wireframes and a pretty good AI. All in all, this is an incredibly complete full race mod of a quality that many of us aspire to. It\'s certainly well worth grabbing a copy. - Freyr
lovely ship it is! One created via Aztel/Atolm (as with many of his other designs) this one works with a stunning eye. Requested by MaP for BI:VR this ship is now one for the public eye adding a very neat ship to the Dominion. My only regret for it is the polly count which stands at about 2000, though many of you shouldn’t have too much problem with this. Additionally, the "Dominion Carrier" from DS9: Dominion Wars (the game, not the series) is also due release by Achilles, another Dominion ship that Dominion fans should keep their eyes pealed for. Nevertheless, a lovely addition to the Dominion, and a lovely job that has been made ;) - SSA
Connie, there's a couple other new ships and, best of all, all the little add-on stuff that you need to fully incorporate this one into your A2. No less than six separate Connie variants AND both a quality Saladin class and Akula-type model. Download this one today. :cool:
conventional warp drive. Like most new Federation ships built in this point in time the Proteus has the latest in Starfleet weaponry and shield geometry. Because this ship has the ability to cover large area of space in such a short period of time she is specificaly designed for multipurpose roles ranging from patroling the outer reaches of Federation space to long range tactical missions.
both sperately. ;)
nice (and imaginative) shipyards here. This comes complete with:[quote]1. Advancing option 2. Lightmaps 3. Rotated HardPoints 4. Wireframe, Build Button, Admirals Pic 5. 3D Borg Textures 6. german and english readme and odfs[/quote]- SSA
Nothing on the original federation side has been changed in this beta, but the following Section 31 vessels, and stations have been added (this list below gives also shows the current tech tree setout): STARBASE - Now builds Section 31 Construction vessel The construction vessel uses 4 worker bees, and whilst using the same construction techniques as the normal federation construction vessel, is armed and can travel at warp. It can also build some standard federation structures and the Section 31 shipyard. SECTION 31 SHIPYARD - Build the Section 31 vessels Although this shipyard can build it does not repair. I\'ve gone with a more regular feel to the shipyard and hope that it will set the actual station apart from the others. It should also, by rights, have a rotating satelite dish, for detecting purposes. VESSEL DETAILS: Valour Class - Designated as a heavy scout. Minimal build/resource time/cost. Also minimal crew designated. Tengen Class - Light Destroyer type, which bears a similair resemblance to the Miranda class. This class is actually more of a replacement. Arumaan Class - Light Cruiser. Larger than the Tengen and more heavily armed this class costs significantly more, but is somwhat faster when travelling at top speeds. Spectre Class - Destroyer. Fast and manouverable, but lighly armoured/shielded the Spectre is used primarily for hit and run attacks. Sentinel Class - Defense Cruiser. As the type suggests this class is used primarily for defending sensitive targets. It also can be used to aid turrets in a mobile defense position. Shadow Class - Advanced Cruiser. Cloakable, the Shadow class has the abilty to slip into an enemy base undetected. Dallas Class - Torpedo Cruiser. Although armed with the standard phasers of most Section 31 classes, the Dallas also carries twin Tri-cobalt, area effective, torpedos. These torpedos carry a faster recharge time than normal Tri-cobalts, and as such can create severe problems for even the largest of enemy vessels and stations. Deimos Class - Heavy Cruiser. Heavier shields and armour make this a good all round vessel. Banshee Class - Tactical Destroyer. Smaller than normal vessels this class still packs quite an impressive array of weapons, and carries much better shields than other types. Diablo Class - Heavy Battleship. Using a twin engineering hulls the Diablo is a huge vessel, with a massive amount of firepower, and is nearly always deployed as a front line vessel. Akisato Class - Dreadnought. Power, speed, impressive weaponery are what this class is about. It has the ability to cause any enemy vessel problems when in combat and should never be underestimated. Shakuras Class - BattleCruiser. A good combination of weapons and speed give this class the edge in most combat. Its speed alone is sometimes enough to keep enemy vessels at bay. Kaleb Class - Command Battleship. A recent addition to the Section 31 side, this design was taken from schematics of the \"USS Dauntless NX - 01A\" when the USS Voyager returned from the Delta Quadrant. Using alot of the similair technologies the Dauntless had, Section 31 Starship Development Centre managed to finetune the design to include a working Slipstream. This was made available due to the sleek design and inverted warp nacelles. [/quote]
screenshot) are in need of an update, for the most part this map is pretty good, without being oversized to the point of extremity. Worth a look. :cool:
stationary, huh? Well, this is a very clever idea of giving engines to a station and then disabling them, that way you can get any ship with a tractor beam (most notably your assault and construction ships) and drag them to anywhere on your map, so if you build them in a strategically bad place, or they aren't needed in that area again, you can drag them to somewhere that is. Of course, you won't need defence in that progress, because the turrets are still powered, pretty neat huh? Obviously, the game play can vary quite a bit now. It means you can easily focus your defence to points that need further defending, of course this does mean that the enemy can catch onto your plans and try and go around the turrets, so it's really quite a difficult manoeuvre to pull off successfully, still, it's a very good mod for such a small download and definitely recommendable. - Joelteon7 (17/05/07)
Regardless, I also believe these the first of this released on the site. There are others for Armada I / II but they aren\'t on any community site that I know of. All in all, an excellent job. The only thing I could fault is the stock textures, but even they don\'t look as bad as they could. ;) - Ash
Voyager Class, which will be released soon.... NOW DOWNLOAD!! :D (Voyager put that, not me :D . -Greg) so stil DOWNLOAD!!! --voyager009 this is the final: http://www.armada2files.com/file.info?ID=7171 u must have the beta for it to work!!!
(non-separating version) Voyager009\'s AVM 3.0 ACPM\'s Highlander[/quote]
powefull, somewhat realisitic cube. The new cube will cost 10000 dylithium, 10000 metal, and will take 5 minutes to build. The cube is equipped with Armor, 7 phasers, 3 photon torpedoe launchers, transwarp drive, regeneration, holding beam, technology assimilation beam, and assimilated transphasic torpedoes. Ive always been unimpressed by the A2 cube, and I think this is an admirable replacement (if imbalanced).[/quote] This might be the cube fix you've all been waiting for :)
honestly, it looks fine. Different, definitely, but fun and something interesting to look at. Given it\'s stats, being \"able to take on 4 battleships\", it throws open as to how balanced it is...but then again, it\'s Dominion with multi-targeting customised weapons, so try it out yourself. The textures are flawless as expected and the Borg textures are VERY green, perhaps too much so, but, they were done and that is something rare. Complementing that is the build button, wireframe, admiral\'s log and all necessary files (just what we want). A foreboding sight in game, as can be easily seen in the pic below, she would be a very destructive addition to your Dominion Armada...so what are you waiting for?

between this and the previous version, be sure this ship will not be weak; you can\'t take on the might of the Wraith in a little destroyer can you? This is, therefore, where this dreadnaught comes into it. She is balanced to Greathor\'s other Stargate craft but, obviously, won\'t be too balanced for much Star Trek play. If you have a particular race for Stargate ships to go into, I\'d place this in here, otherwise as you can see, she\'s with the Federation. Fortuneately, you can have both Achilles class variants in game at the same time, so you can see the texture difference...or just kick more ass. It\'s really up to you! The only negative thing is the lack of build button, wireframe and admiral\'s picture. This I find to be a great shame considering the rest of the mod is of very high quality. Download now any Stargate fans and show them Wraith the power of the Tau\'ri!
not see that as a problem. You aren\'t / shouldn\'t have the need to go filling up your map with them. I believe the scaling is a little off though, compared to a ship in one of the pictures. Though, again, you can\'t really be fussy about this. Considering the size of ships, stations and planets in Armada, this has been made big enough. I am also to understand there are three models of this Station, all different. I can\'t personally tell them apart from the screenshots, maybe they\'re different in-game? Who knows. But yeah, if you are a fan of the Federation, and are in need of a Space Dock (or a new one) then this would be a definate download. - Ash
Definetly worth a download of you\'re a canon trekkie buff :)
would ZIP em up and post them here just to keep moral up and remind us all why were here at A2Files :) I\'ve put in all the series (from TOS to Enterprise), A MIDI from the Star Trek 25th game, The fanfair, Wrath of Kahn, Insurection (a few films) and a Mega Mix of everything all wonderfully strung together. Oh, i didnt make these BTW, this is just my collection, so alot of Thanks to the authors of these wonderfull files :) Enjoy
hardpoints, the weapon textures, a build button and screenshots are all included. However, for those of you that wish to actually 'use' this in your game, you shall have to do a bit of work yourself. The actual 'stats' of the .odf file need filling in, and a Wireframe will need to be created. Likewise, as I've said, there is a weapon texture provided. There is no 'actual' weapon. I've tried a few attempts, but could never get it right, so gave up. I did have bigger hopes for this, I did have planned a rather big release, covering all of the Goa'uld System Lords, and their specific ships, along with a Goa'uld Starbase, and Shipyard to build them, but I simply haven't got the time to fulfil any more of this. Anyway, strange that I seem to have given my own file a 'fairly' negative Description, but I might as well tell the truth when I say I got lazy, and couldn't be bothered to complete it due to time restrictions and etc. Anyway, I'm sure many will have fun with this. PS: Please don't e-mail me asking how to get it working in game. I obviously haven't had the time to complete it, so e-mailing me asking for help is only going to annoy me. - Ash
enough, 3 years later it\'s back for one last run. This is a teaser pack that will update the Menu Screens of Star Wars: Fleet Command, before the last major update to the modification is made in 2006. This will make the screens, menus and other areas Star Wars: Fleet Command exclusive, removing the ST vs SW II teaser screens from the modification. For those who\'ve never heard of Star Wars: Fleet Command, you can find it by [url=http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Star_Wars_Fleet_Command;8831]clicking here[/url]! Enjoy.
a seperate ship.[/quote]
nice, the sphere you can see in the screenshots too, and the new ships and weapons are a good addition to the race. Now includes some Federation ships for balence, a new cube, some new weapons and textures for sphere, tactical sphere and Assimilator.
have more crew, hull and weapons. (it also include a new tipe of phaser & photon) The base will be able to be constructed, once you have build a shipyard, the adv shipyard, and both science and research stations. [/quote]
a bit: the lighting is better now, the planets have appropriate things surrounding them, and Starfleet HQ is now on the map, as well as several other treasures you'll have to find :) Planets on this map: Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Neptune Uranus Pluto (is it still a planet?) Qo'Nos Romulus Remus Vulcan Cardassia Prime Alpha Centari Betazed Risa Andorea Feringinar Seti-Alpha V Ba'Ku Bajor I will be working on a map of the Terran system next, hopefully laid out like it's supposed to look. And I'm also thinking about creating a "Galaxy" map that would include everything in the "Star Trek" known galaxy, such as separators between the quadrants, the Bajoran wormhole leading to the Gamma quadrant, etc... that will be a HUGE undertaking though, and it will take a while.
MOD, and for the users first to the site (I think) I'm quite impressed. Anyhow, stargate fans download, as should those people who don't like the transwarp portal ;) - Ash
sure does need it. Download now.
and ohhhhh boy, does it do it nicely! Gavin has ported the SFC3 Klingon Starbase, given it some very shiny new textures, added some Borg textures, made a wireframe, buildbutton AND admiral's pic and, of course, given it a lot of weapons. That enough for you? I'd have to say, the quality of the textures, both sets, are very good and the installation instructions are a breeze. It also comes with a clear hardpoint map, in case you want to make a few edits. My suggestion would be to really, just replace the old Starbase with this one, or, if you're not happy with that, to make this one an outpost, as it suggests, able to hold a location until the big'guns arrive onto the scene for clean up. Make no mistake, a Klingons life lives in its weapons and you can be safe to have this in-game now. For Klingon fans, this is a must have for the few stations available to them and for non-Klingon fans...well, if you want to try your hand at blowing up something very strong, here it is...just don't be too confident of your success!
just seem wrong, then again, could be me. Main fixes though include: -Fixed long \"spike\" at the front of the ship. Guess this would make asteroid piloting slightly better eh? -Improved textures (from what I can see anyhow). Not really much else to say, other then this really would be great for a re-creation or beauty shot and on the latter, this guarantees it. Good job, download now! [b]Warning, high poly model[/b]
such praise and then some. Quite possibly the most famous starship not named Enterprise, the Defiant was the star of the show throughout the Dominion War, and she'd be the weapon of choice for the majority of our fanbase here at A2Files. This is one model you're going to catch yourself starin' at, kids. I know I did. The model itself comes in at about a thousand poly, which might be a problem if you spam 'em in the stock game on a low-end machine. But the textures are incomparably clean and everything you'd want a legend to be. Unlike a few other Defiants I've seen, this one glows in all the proper places and --best of all-- it's coloured properly, too! This one is sure to become the new standard in Defiant-focused PotDs. You're not likely to find a more perfect balance between poly count and texture work anytime soon. The only downside is that you're still reliant on stock buildbuttons and wireframes, but the "tough little ship" is a pretty sure addition to any mod from Ghost's to Borg Incursion and back again. It's nothing you can't find everywhere else, including in stock, but that shouldn't keep you from trying. I have a strong suspicion that this model will become one of the most popular both in downloads and in future PotDs. It's certainly worthy of immediate download. Considerable credit to Aad Moerman for rendering a fan favourite in such exquisite detail. Download this one right now. - the Kid :cool:
sphere you can see in the screenshots too, and the new ships and weapons are a good addition to the race. Definatly a good Borg modification! Download this and give it a run ;)
attack by the Borg when i was in the Space Center Bremen in Germany... :cool: Anyway, a really great design, much different from all the other Federation stations I have seen yet. I must say that shadow has done a perfect job in recreating this station for Armada 2. :rock: Ingame it is acting as an additional armed research station. Only problem could be the high poly count of the station, at least for slower systems. If you like rare official designs: download ASAP! Check the readme for more background information... [i]- TParis[/i]
excellent so far. My favorite part is the K'Lornai's Fighter squadron; It is perfect for protecting ships. An excellent alpha of a promising mod. I am eager for the next installment :)
elements are included (at least, at a reviewer's first glance), and it seems to be pretty comprehensive. Please note that if there are any credit issues, send an e-mail to either theStarfleetKid or TParis and we'll investigate. There were none that I could see, but this mod looks like the sort of thing the community desperately needs right about now. Download this right now, and boldly go. :cool:
with, especially as a modder. There's so many things that happen all at once with a total conversion that it's often hard to see just how much work it took to make the little details come together. It took well over a year for this one to come together. Dan1025 has kept us waiting and waiting in the forums for news of this mod, and now that it's here, it's proving to be well worth the wait. New weapon textures, special weapons, fully functional ship .SODs with Borg textures and lightmaps, wireframes and buttons for everything, an all-new GUI.... even specific SOUND events for the various ships and stations! You couldn't ask for better. A download would be the.... logical choice. :cool:
breath-taking appearance in game as a result, the Century Class is probably one of maybe five ships I\'ve ever seen worthy of the name Enterprise. There is simply nothing better out there right now that so fully represents the proud heritage, and future potential, of the United Federation of Planets quite like this design. And k_merse\'s latest version does the design --and Starfleet-- just right. Get this one today. Even if you have the Century class already, get it again. :cool:
of DS9, and the freighter is intresting and origional. A nice addition is that the freighter can mine dilithium, latinum, and metal at a rate of 125%.
5+ years. Unfortunately, while these maps are firmly embedded as classics in Armada's community a lot of that has to do with planets. Without needing to gather metal and without having the warp inhibiting gravity wells some of these maps won't play anything like the originals. Regardless, these maps are amongst the best ever created for Armada and i'm sure they will play extremely well regardless of the gameplay changes found in fleet operations. Veterans of Armada multiplayer might recognise the maps more readily by the names they have carried for many years more readily. Galaxy Wars version 1, is indeed a Fleet Operations varient of the classic 8 player map "Galaxy Wars by Tomahawk". Galaxy Wars version 2 appears to be the classic "6Assualt" by Petzi Galaxy Wars version 3 looks very much like "Evolutions Tears" Galaxy Wars version 4 is probably 2vs2vs2vs2 by PrimaryDestroyer Sacrifice of the Devil looks quite similar to the classic Sacrifice of Angels map, that's been played since around '04 Choas Control and Corridors are ports of the classic maps of the same name. The venerable wassup series of maps is also represented with 2wasup. I suspect that this map will play radically differently to the original considering most of the gameplay dynamics are different. - Freyr
shockwave. The weapon exploses if the self destruction is activate or the bomb is destroyed by enemy fire. The bomb has no engines, so you have to pull it with an tractorbeam.[/quote] looks like a NICE weapon!
entries, but just one winner. FahreS nipped to the finish line first claiming the most staff votes and certainly does so in style. The Turnstile is a simply lovely station that really has everything; weapons, construction...errr....stationy...stuff. It looks different, whilst fitting in perfectly with the Federation style imbued within it. The quality is certainly not amiss looking absolutely fantastic. Content includes admirals pic, build button and wireframe along with those fabled Borg textures. The end result is something that looks great in game, can certainly hold its own and is a great starbase, able to produce essential craft (battleships and frigates and repair them) in times of need. Altogether, a fantastic download and definitely worthy of being the contest winner. [i]File also includes German readme.[/i]
I\'m telling you to download this. This is a Galaxy class and the dominion war refit by Michael Kelly, and these are superb. It uses Deemons texures for a base, but Michael managed to make them better. Also the venture refit with the necelle phaser strips adds color to the mod pack. I don\'t think that they have any other Venture refits out, but that\'s something I\'ll have to check. The weapons in the ODF file for the venture class are not stock, so you may have to change that to your own configuration settings. I highly reccomend a download, and I even made my own Storm 3D screenshot of the venture.
is a mining station for Dilithium and Latinum. You can choose between 3 build hardpoints for small, medium and big sized ships, 2 repair and 3 docking hardpoints (check the station's ODF). Damage textures, borg textures, and the first time in FahreS' mods, borg damage textures, appear depending upon the condition of your station. This is a brilliant effort and definitely worth the download. :cool:
glide in at the right moment, dispense a few bursts, then flee, not much was known about this destroyer-come-cruiser-come-whatever...doesn't stop it looking awesome though. Part of Starfleet's radical redesign of ships, the Norway really does flip up previous Starfleet design, whilst, somehow, maintaining the old designs. It's all there; the bridge, the separated nacelles etc. and that's what makes this mod great, the fact that it faithfully recreates that little seen ship that appears for under a minute. Complete with every file needed to get it working (interface and odf files etc.) this Norway holds up even now against newer models in its quality. Looking very "I'm here to get the job done" she fits in nicely just below the Akira, but somewhere around the Intrepid/Steamrunner level, so if you want to slot it in specifically into your Federation fleet, you have a bit of flexibility when it comes to the tech tree, although she is very much a first-shipyard ship. Another masterpiece by Deemon, this is an essential inclusion to any Federation fleet and, does so with one heck of a bang.
Omega Starbase, AND The Ultimate Promthesis-X class with the ability to destroy an Omega Tactical Fusion Cube and live. :) Some quality work. Download now!
Jem\'Hadar, download it anyway :p
game, so we find ourselves privilidged to be the first site to host it ;) Along with the Reptillian Cruiser, there is the Aquatic Battleship & Insectiod Destroyer that are both avaliable. The Insectiod vessel only for SFC3 (and possably Bridge Commander). The Aquatic ship can be found upon A2Files however though at a ridiculiously high set polly count - Something that could have got more attention upon conversion, but still. - An additional note however, going by the screenshots, I do think the scale is a little off, but that is easily corrected :) Nevertheless, this is a must download for any Enterprise or Xindi fans out there ;) - SSA
episodes. Unfortunately it comes without the big doomsday weapon of death that Anubis had, but I am sure that somebody will do one and send it in now a ship to stick in on is available. You must have the Goa'uld pulse found here (http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Goauld_Weapon;62423) or horrible things will happen when this tries to fire at anything.
design has never before been seen for Armada II in the fullness of its designer's intent.... until now. This mod by k_merse just might be the finest ship I've seen in a very long time. As with his previous efforts on the Century class, no bit of detail overlooked, no effort underdone, no point of potential nitpicking left for comment. She's a jaw-dropper. I can't believe I didn't like this design when I first saw it. Now.... now it's done right. And best of all, it's a part of a mod that's of the kind we like to see here at A2Files: AMAZING. Download this ship right now. Even if you're not a Titan fan, you'll love this one. :cool:
includes voice files, Admiral's Log pictures, an own space background and some nice addititions for the Tholian's GUI. Well, the only thing to complain about might be the new voices... they are... hummm... pretty unique ;) . I think that they are fitting to the race but you should check 'em out and consider yourself :) . Overall this is a must-download for the Tholian lovers out there. :thumbsup: - TParis [u][b]Note[/b][/u]: This is coming as an ZIP package, so you have to put the files and folders yourself. Check the readme for details.
appears to be nicely balanced against comparable ships.
with various versions, instructions and now many colours to choose from. So what does it actually do? Well, if installed correctly, it replaces the old colour=status shields with a one colour, hit-reactive grid. This means you could be hit on one side and have a torpedo hit you on the front and the effect will light up then dissipate. Nice huh? Of course, it requires quite a bit of gui editing, which as anyone who has tried to edit it will know, isn't exactly the friendliest of editing in-game (second I'd say to Ai). The rewards are obviously worth it and do provide some fine results, including some good picture grabbing opportunities. It's difficult to say much else, even though it is not only a breakthrough mod and fine at it, but so simple...so while you're downloading, I'll leave you with a word from the developer, "Note: No animals or people were harmed in the development of this mod. Should be handled wisely. In the case of dropping this mod by accident, there is no warrantee available. Do not bring mod close to a fire source. Do not apply magnets to it. Don’t use it to breed a new super-human species, etc. And yes, this is the blue shields mod. ;)"
as well, which is equally important and helps to root out any mistakes you've made. What is also ncie about it is the "human" feel to it. It has been written for reading and following in mind and does a good job at it. In short, for those of you having trouble installing your new ships or stations, this is a very practical and good tutorial to get.
think the borg side should have.
an understatement, as this is more like a wholly new take on the Ryan Church design. It's definitely worth a download, but be advised: any comments not related to the mod, but to the ship/movie, will be edited or deleted. :cool:
it looks like one. This ship can be insta-refitted to go from cruiser to artillery via a speical weapon. Download now.
utritrum burst weapon on the Borg diamonds. Finally, you too can have the answer to every third episode causing problem! Download now!
is a twist for the standard gunmetal grey color of the standard D7, and is is way better than the stock D7 upgrade. The ship has basically the asme armorments as the stock D7 refit, and, in my opinion, is well worth the download.
nice (and well detailed) Cylon Basestar to use in-game. - SSA
also come from the stvssw mod.
Galor\'s loadout, so it\'s balanced. I reccomend a download.
a USS Voyager hero ship that's simply spectacular. The quality of this model is as good, if not better, than any Intrepid we've yet seen-- but best of all, FahreS has included the warp-capable model of this ship with a fusion script that allows Voyager's warp nacelles to realign themselves in keeping with the original Intrepid model's design. That's something we've never really seen done quite this well before. This mod comes complete with the fusion scripts, the admiral's log pic, the buildbutton and wireframe, and specialized photons and phasers as well. Note that you can't use this to replace your stock Intrepid-- all the build names are USS Voyager because of how the re-aligning of warp engines relies upon fusion scripts. Nothing to be done about that. In theory, you could also modify this ship to launch the Delta Flyer or shuttles, use tricobalt devices or re-create the entire trip home across the Delta Quadrant. Nice quality Borg textures make alternate endings a distinct possibility, of course. But this model of the Intrepid class leaves nothing to be desired. It's that good. And it leaves us wondering where FahreS will apply his considerable modelling talents next. (If I could put a request in, I'd love to see his take on the Excelsior.) Download this one absolutely right now. :cool:
Captain Kaylenn has gone overboard at times with nebulas, wich my luck nice, and prove a good challenge, but probably completely cripple gameplay..... The shot (below) shows some of the other maps, and there are a few good ones as you can see. It is STRONGLY reccomended that Unlimited Resources be used when playing these, as several of them have no resources of their own, wich is quite a dissapointment for all you hardcore players who may not prefer easy challenges. All in all a very nice collection thats worth adding to your collection of maps. ;)
individually and this type of thing has been done before.
Multi Vector Assault Mode integrated, tanked up with some impressive armour and a bite that will cripple a Negh'Var it's shows the meaner side of Starfleet. Thanks to DocaCola and the FO team, the release of the [url="http://armada2.filefront.com/news/Star_Trek_Armada_II_Patch_Project_125_released;36976"]Patch Project 1.2.5[/url]; MVAM and fighter deployment have been realized. This mod uses Deemon's Prometheus Class which is already available here, but obviously the fact you can separate the ship into 3 sub-vessels to pull the ears off of a few Romulans means it is a significant update on the original. The Quality of the model is the same but it's new features are definitely worth the use of bandwidth. Great work :rock: - [b]IKS[/b]
people do, they don\'t replace/affect any of the existing planets, and its very easy to install. Check out the readme for a full list of planets!
well as adding a tractor beam, and increasing the special weapons energy. Just make sure to have this built from your Borg shipyard and it will automatically have Borg textures for the ship.[/quote]
before. It almost makes you want to run a Millennium Falcon along its length just to re-create the escape from Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back. It's that good. The original version was by Warlords Modding Union, and the work that's been done on it represents a fantastic improvement. Note, however, that some game tweaking is going to be in order to get this beast to work for you as starfox intends it. This was an entry in the 2008 Year End Modding Contest, and it was very difficult judging indeed. To Starfox, we can only say, "most impressive." Download this one right now. It is your DESTINY. :cool:
BorgIncursuion Mod.. its made for BI+Counterstrike Addon, but should work with BI itself, too[/quote] Nice way to support mods APCM :)
them. Those nacelles on the previous version seemed to resemble a new designed set, more so than the nacelles you\'d expect to see on a refitted Excelsior (at least, in my opinion). Likewise, and with more changes, the textures have been edited also, this time, to include light maps (alpha channels), along with the phaser arrays on the saucer moved. Those before seemed a little cramped up, especially when compared to the Excelsior of TMP / TNG. Overall, to me, this is the better design of the two, and the changes do it Justice. However, there will be those who feel the other is the better ship, and with that, the file is still avaliable to download. This one would almost feature as an Editors Choice / Directors Cut or something. Both are good, regardless ;) - Ash
system from the Wraith. The model is excellently detailed, and the textures are very good; downside is it doesn\'t have any of the finish addons like ODF files, admiral pic, ship icon button..etc but if you treat it as a blank canvas you can do wonders with it. Personally if you want to get more skill and experience with modelling - an ungrouped ms3d model such as this is the perfect chance to mess around with, you could even make a fully fledged mod from it. :cool: - [b]IKS[/b]
standards, he really exceles in one of the best known Cardassian shps. This is a great cannon ship, and I have not seen it done better. I have not seen this done any better, and I reccomend a download. Now. Stop reading, just download it.
upgrade the Goa\'uld ships these were by far the most advanced ship in the Stargate Universe. The Asgard used the most obselete ships to enforce the Protected Planets Treaty in our galaxy while more advanced ships fought in the war against the Replicators. The Beliskner has since been replaced by the more advanced O\'Neill and Daniel Jackson ships in the Asgard Fleet.

average, for most of this year.... "how DOES Jetfreak do this so well so often!?" At this point, I'm half-convinced he's on some sort of model-enhancing drugs. No, don't tell me such things don't exist. Look at the work Jetfreak's done and tell me how it's possible without some sort of artificial boost. The pics really tell you everything you need to know about this model and more, most notably that once again, the gold standard for quality mods in this community has been set, then exceeded, by our man Jetfreak. Download this one for sure. :cool:
of Armada II.
the most recent controversies over the upcoming film's version of the original (and to many, the best) starship. Some believe that starship design and everything after is simply a waste of effort 'cause the refit Constitution simply enhances the original, simple, legendary design. With the experiences of Kirk's Enterprise (both of them) in this class of starship, and the six films that chronicled those adventures, it's hard to disagree. Jetfreak's retexture of Rick Knox's previous version of this design (ported to A2 by Beginner) is simply evidence of the beauty and the power that makes the legendary Constitution the "ship of dreams" for many a Trekker. It's a bit big (over 2500 poly) for a cruiser, and doesn't come with a wireframe, but the results achieved by Jetfreak aren't to be detracted from regardless. It's good to see Jetfreak back in action, and in such fine form. This Constitution certainly commnends itself to your immediate attention. Download this fantastic starship right now. :cool:
Rake's disruptors, a special weapon, everything! This will perfectly fit in with the other Romulan ships done by Pepperman as well, so you can truly bolster your Romulan armada now with a fleet of brand new ships designed to safe-guard the Romulan territories. Obviously, as a cruiser, you'll want to make sure it's balanced to that, say of an Akira or Excelsior. I'd hazard a guess and say this was meant to be more powerful and almost as quick as an Intrepid, so if you can balance it to that, you should get some pretty decent game play out of it. All in all, it's a fantastic ship to add into your game, don't hazard a wait on the download.
Still, paper is only 2d. What Pepperman does (oh so well I should add) is make designs 3d...particularly Azel\'s Romulan designs. This is no different. In fact, sometimes I get a little sceptical when mods only have one picture to go with them. It can mean that there isn\'t anything to show, that it is lacking etc. It does, on the rarer occassion, mean that there is too much to say and so, one picture makes sense. This is also one of those occassions. The beautifully crafted Shadow Wing Warbird comes with a plethora of heavy weaponry (of which new textures are included [see: Rake\'s Weapon Texture] for her disruptors and torpedoes), good defence but a hefty bill for construction. It does however have a wireframe, stylish admiral\'s pic and similarly stylish build button. Still, a minor warning as this ship has some pretty high-res textures and a medium-high poly count. It\'s always good anyhow to see a new Romulan design and this is a reason why. So, download this sculpted bird...but don\'t get in its way.
section and realised that we didn't actually have these two ships for downloading, thus decided they deserve a place on the site. Both of these ships are suppose to be 'canon'. Along with the Whitestar, these are the only other Minbari ships we've seen if you exclude the scouts and such.[/quote]- Ash
tubes and the original test bed for quantum torpedoes) the Cheyenne (a four nacelled cruiser) and the Springfield (with a big...thing...on it...holds torpedoes?). Anyhow, I'm sure most of you have already seen these before, but for those who haven't, they were prototype designs pumped out by Starfleet in an effort to produce 'Anti-Borg' ships. Of course, considering all ships were destroyed at Wolf 359, they all failed. The ships are all cruisers based off the larger Galaxy design. They play more of a supporting role in the fleet, so don't expect them to be punching any holes in battleships, or at least not by themselves. The Cheyenne you'll want to use as a reconnaissance vessel. Its speed allows it to dart in and out with the info. before it's reacted too, but its armament will achieve little in terms of offensive punch. The Springfield, having a bit more of a punch, can support a larger class while it engages. Again, this won't be doing any one-on-one, but, it has enough power to fight and then cheese it when the enemy re-enforcements come. The New Orleans, the only ship likely to survive in a one-on-one has a large torpedo load and is small, but can be ripped apart fairly easily. She's essentially an artillery ship, so you'll want her behind the bulk of your forces, but still in range of the enemy. No doubt, she's the strongest of the lot. Graphically, they all look very nice. We do have multiple versions of each on the site, so they provide a little bit more choice to which one you get. In-game, they'll do a straight replacement of the Akira, Intrepid and Steamrunner though when you have the hp's, there is of course nothing stopping you from changing the odf's to your heart's content. All in all, it's a nice and well done pack. While technically not adding anything new to the scene, you can't fault its quality.

the ground up and it shows, this version is alot better then the previous versions. Check the readme for alot more detail on the changes made to the game because there are quite a few. Enjoy! :)
so if you have already downloaded it then your going to be wanting this. Anybody else won\'t want this because its simply a patch and it dosen\'t contain anything new. I will post a new complete download at some stage that does not suffer from the problems that the original had for everybody else. Sorry about this.
anywhere uless you are the Borg or 8472 (or Federation if you got the mod that give the Federation transwarp or someother mod). The dead Borg Transwrp gate are being grardid by Federation StarBases (Starfleet Command ones). So you most kill them or taken over them before you got the Transwarp gate. there are orso there ais some dead ship there too.[/quote] Ooooh, makes it a little bit more risky.... :p
very cool. This isn\'t any different. She can fight, she looks VERY cool armed with a close mesh to the original and some very good textures with some fine details, so it\'s a shame to some extent that they aren\'t going to be noticed as much due to its size. Most likely rigged so that a \"wing\" of these can take out a Ha\'tak, they will be powerful in numbers, but don\'t expect them to be able to do anything useful as a single unit other than harass a non-combat ship. Similarly to the 302, I recommend you get one of the Tau\'ri cruisers to build these from the hangars. The package comes with a build button (which looks as good as the 302), a wireframe and an admiral pic for both the 301 AND the recently uploaded 301. So, if you want a bit of variance with the fighters you have or merely wish for a full-house of them, download this now.
quite a good weapon, it looks very similar to the original weapon albeit a tad bit slimmer than that beam but it\'s the correct colour and position so it does look very cool ingame. It does a good bit of damage too so it doesn\'t just look pretty, it bites and boy does it bite hard - it is about 20 times stronger than normal Federation phasers, the range is similar to most phasers, it\'s damage base is 850 so it will ruffle a few feathers!

separate ones and then one that joins up the two themes) they look lovely and certainly will fill up the rank and roles of the Federation bases. High quality all around, they\'re a complete package lacking on Borg textures for total completion. The bases though are tuned to take on a \'full Dominion fleet\', so don\'t expect them to go down in a hurry (boasting strong shielding and no less than 40 weapons a piece) but are balanced on the resources side to compensate. Quiet, but deadly? Definitely. Runner up to FahreS, but still high in quality and use. Definitely worthy of a Federation build list.
sneak sniping attack on your mining ops, if you have this baby in your ranks. This advanced mining station has got impressive defence capabilities (along with it\'s Type XI Phasers); [list][*]Sensor Jammer - it may be Romulan but if you can suck in enough enemy ships to attack your mining base this weapon can render them useless in combat giving you a perfect chance to ambush them with a Fleet hiding somewhere nearby. [*]Shield Emitter - If your Fleet fails miserably in ambushing the Romulans give them a blast of this :) [*]Corbomite Reflector - The Torpedo stopper. This will ensure you last considerable and sustained attacks by superior forces. [/list] Cool mod, keep up the good work andyx100 :thumbsup: [b]- IKS[/b]
going to contribute anything positive to the universe, now is it? (Not that we play A2 to contribute anything but phaser energy and torpedoes!) This is, quite possibly, one of the finest ships I\'ve seen --and one of those I\'ve long awaited! The long-neglected Andorian warship (seen in Enterprise, the most prominent of which was Shran\'s flagship, the Kumari) is here, and fine enough to do the Imperial Guard PROUD! With permission, dan1025 turned one of Atolm\'s works from SFC into this masterpiece of Andorian design. It\'s enough to make you wonder why we don\'t see MORE of this species on the decks of Starfleet vessels. But then, with ships this nice, why waste your energies designing EXPLORER vessels? Best of all, it\'s (almost!) the complete package-- it comes with a build button, Admiral\'s Log pic, its own weapons, and truly awesome Borg textures. The only fault is a lack in wireframe. But that can come later! Please note that the updated readme is listed below-- dan1025 sent it in this evening. I\'ve had this ship in my mod for a little longer than that, and DAYUM does it ever look the part. So what are you waiting for? Go get those pinkskins! Or whoever else you want! This ship\'s ready to roll. Definitely worth a download! :cool: - the Kid

belong to the community, but when you release a mod, you WANT your stuff to be compared favourably to theirs. It's a badge of honour for A2 modders to hear, "that model looks almost as good as Major Payne's" or "I'm used to seeing stuff this good out of Achilles" or "Man, those textures are Jetfreak-level quality." The reason for that last one used in conversation can be seen clearly, abundantly, in this mod. Jet's taken a MaP version of Hawkeye's model of the Sovereign class starship, and kitted out its texture with such detail as can scarcely be imagined. Jet's done Sovereign retextures before. This one is arguably the DEFINITIVE A2 model of the definitive Starfleet starship of the post-Nemesis era. And the textures are the difference maker. Jet has been tweaking and working on this one for a long time. He refers to it in the readme as his "final" version of the Sov, and it's easy to see why. At this level of pure win, it's hard to imagine outdoing oneself. There are no less than FOUR different versions available: a standard Sov, a War Sovereign, a hero model for Captain Picard, and an imperial USS Enterprise-E, among other little bonuses I won't describe here. Not only is this a truly fantastic piece of work, it plays very well, too. I took out a formation of twelve of them up against a Romulan adversary earlier today. They're graceful and lethal all at once. You simply MUST download this. :cool:
good, but the file size is a little big, and it's been done before, just maybe not in the same way.
incorporated design features from most, if not all, of its predecessors, notably the Excelsior and Constitution class designs. Yet she stood apart. If the Excelsior was intended at the time as a sort of early model Ford Mustang, and the Galaxy class as a high-end SUV, the Sovereign made herself the Ferrari on the lot. The ambitious design made itself great with its appearances in Insurrection and Nemesis (hopefully it was insured) as the Enterprise, but also in the game Bridge Commander as the USS Sovereign. Of course, we've seen them by the thousands in Armada, sometimes in lame "Sovvy rushes". But I'd be hard-pressed to remember a time, or a model, in A2 when the best starship that the Federation has to offer looked quite THIS nice. This model is Jetfreak's conversion of the well-known CG Sovereign from BC. It offers some nice features, notably a brighter hull, full speculars, and less poly than the P81 model of old. While some parts of it might rankle the true Sov worshipers among us (for example, I swear this model has headlights coming from just below the bridge), the fact is, it's the finest model of a truly fine starship that we've yet seen. It's days like this that I love being part of this community, 'cause it's SO good to see something this beautiful come to life. I highly recommend that you download this one right now, 'cause it looks spectacular. Jetfreak has shown us some truly fantastic work in the past, mostly via PotD submissions. I think I speak for all of us when I say to Jetfreak, "shine on, you crazy diamond". :cool:
is a significant improvement on the other files we do have available.
looks very nice. It would be best used for a generic low-grade race you might have installed. Failing that, Pre-TOS/ENT era ships would probably make good use of it. You could also have it as a heavy missile special weapon for a ship. You get the idea though that it has a lot of options. The missile has a good shape to it and the textures fit it well, all in all, a good job. The next weapon, of the transporting nuke I think is fantastic. Set to travel at a fast speed with a blank sod, the weapon should penetrate the enemy hull and cause extensive/fatal damage. Again, the possibilities are wide open. You could have a Tau\'ri ship have a special weapon allowing it to transport a limited amount of Nuke\'s onboard enemy craft or have it on a ship in a different universe, say a high-tech race which has it as a devastating standard weapon. Pure carnage...we like carnage here and with this, you most certainly will to. Extended readme\'s providing the needed installation instructions are included in the dual-weapon pack, which really does make for a fantastic download. Get it now.
I released one anyway. This is just a blank sod, and will not overwrite any other mods. I tried to rate myself fairly, but If you didn\'t think I didn\'t, send your complaints to firstname.lastname@example.org. j/k :b. Enjoy!

Valkyrie. The story of a long-time Cylon PoW brought back to the Admiral's attention after quite a few years was.... interesting, if slightly implausible. Still, it's nice to see a different battlestar model, and mikemckeon007's port of this ship from the BC BSG mod pack (along with all the work he's been doing in that regard lately) captures all the details nicely. Download this one today. :cool:
droid fighter from Star Wars. This is a great addition to any Romulan collection. It also includes wireframe and a buildbutton.
She takes a very long time to build but has over 20 weapons ports (less than the other highly anticipated Klingon ship, which has somewhere in the region of 42) that prove that this goliath of a ship can hold its own. Whilst the initial design was my own, Achilles has taken it (and it was simple, very simple) and made it a shape of its own, although possibly wavering on the side of the Imperials from Star Wars, but keeping it Romulan. The stunning texture job also helps. I mean, look at the Romulan writing on the side of the wings? In short, the whole thing is great. Not to put down other designs of course because there were some very innovative, fun and downright silly (yes, I'm talking about the Klingon-cannon!) ships that all took our eye, but unfortunately some were not entered, however I'm sure we'll seem them in the future, so look out for them! Actual contents in this file are model, textures, extensive odf's (main plus weapons) complete with build button and wireframe on the end. As mentioned previously, she is balanced in cost and time (over a minute, enough time to put the kettle on or to grab a donut) but will give the enemy what-for. Expect them to be un-happy when you run one or two of these into the enemy base. Of course, that's not to say she isn't a target. She may have a cloak, but she is huge, don't forget that. Still, it's all a bit of fun and we give this winner full marks! Download now for birthday treats!
texture may come with us in time. - SSA

damage to Federation interests on its own. Yet the Borg somehow need stations and support vessels to do their worst in A2. It doesn\'t make sense. Until now. Using an often-overlooked \"mamacube\" from the stock game, adm_tyler has given us the new Borg Command Cube. Not only does it contain more powerful (and more canon) cutting beams and torpedoes, but it also includes a multi-targeting holding beam capable of doing immense damage. This one vessel on its own is sufficient to take down numbers in your fleet. And does that ever make it intimidating. Note that I say \"intimidating\" rather than \"resistance is futile\". Because resistance, in this case, is a balanced game. Sure, it\'s got the abilit y to regenerate AND the ability to initiate transwarp portals on command, but it\'s also balanced to the stock A2 fairly well. It\'s not as impossible as Wolf 359, but not over as fast as Scorpion, Part I. That\'s the best way I can describe it. It\'s powerful without being a \'god ship\'. And it\'s easy on your computer, so you don\'t have to worry about it assimilating your operating speed while it assimiliates all your base. Everything you love about the Borg, or love to blow up, is yours in this cube. And best of all, it uses a stock model to do the job! And download Curtis\' Borg texture upgrade to truly enjoy it! So until the day when someone comes up with One Very Devastatingly \"Resistance Is Futile\" Borg Cube, this one does the trick REALLLLY nicely. Download it now and find out for yourself! :borg: :rock: - the Kid
experimental carrier ship, the Typhon (which was actually pretty small when compared to a Sovereign). Both needed each other and thus, many missions ensued with you in your ever-upgrading Valkyrie jumping from task to task like it was any ordinary day; from fighting the Romulans and aiding the Klingons, to fighting two thought-to-be-extinct races, an armada of Borg ships and because it has to, a renegade Starfleet captain (of the USS Sentinel, Sovereign class). Today, we get what made that game great. And no, that isn\'t fighters with quantum torpedoes (oh, that was fun). What is in here though is the Typhon class, with enough hull to punch through the enemy lines and enough shielding to deploy into Launch Mode and let the Valkyries loose (i.e. building them). The system is pretty intuitive, as you simply build the costly Typhon and as soon as it leaves the dock, you can change from Fortress Mode (with inaccurate pulse phasers, to relate to how in Invasion turrets were manned, not automated) to the Launch Mode where you can build three types of Valkyrie that play out slightly different. Not too much, but it is certainly discernable. The Typhon it self doesn\'t pack a punch, so simply pumping these out is not going to achieve anything note-worthy. Deploy with the Valkyries though and you have something of a powerful, albeit poor defense, attack force in the manageable Valkyrie fighters. Whilst it\'s a shame that the other variations of Valkyrie were included (there were 3 types) along with any of the multiplayer fighters and enemy craft from the campaign, what is present is nicely executed and gets the feeling across of gritty warfare. Textures fit the bill, along with the models and they\'re all complete with build buttons and wireframes, which certainly look the part. To really get the use out of this though, you really need to \'micro-manage\' your forces. You can\'t just build Valkyrie and expect them to do lots of damage. They will, but if you simply order them, they\'ll lose a lot of attack power as your forces get diminished and slowly, you\'ll find a drain on your resources becoming significant. Attack, control then retreat to the safety of your deployed Fortress Typhon. All in all though, very good fun. It\'s a charming little package, definitely.
a mess of things. Yet a mess is not the result. In fact, this baseship looks every bit as terrifying and intimidating in-game as they do regularly in the reimagined series. With the impending conclusion of the show's new episode run, you'll have plenty of reason to download this. And of course, you will. I know you will, because all this has happened before, and will happen again. :cool:
few SP missions for ST VS SW. I haven\'t played them yet(Ugh@Homework...More info [URL=http://www.armada2files.com/file.news?ID=1997]Here[/URL]), but with the excellent quality of the Wolf 359 mission, I\'m sure we can expect the same :)
of New Caprica, she provided a little more awesome content for future modders of Armada II. Bridge Commander got the good stuff first, and "The Beast" appeared as part of the BSG pack for that game. Recently mikemckeon007 ported the Pegasus from that game into Armada II, and the results are as you see them here. Note that there are some serious imperfections in the mod along the centre line, with stretched textures (especially visible on the underside and in the engines, but also along the 'spine' of the vessel). However, mikemckeon007 has included the Milkshape3D file if anyone wanted to pick up where he left off. Also included is everything you need in order to get this one working in game. Download this one right now. So say we all. :cool:
federation carbonite reflector and Holo-generator from the incursion. It also never runs out of special. It comes equip with quantom torpedos and starbase weaponry. Its shields have also been substantially boosted and the crew is placed at 1200. This is a base killer!!!!!!! The best part of all there is only 1 file need to be added!
maps, but to play this one starting from scratch, you would have to download hundreds of megabytes of mods to play. I couldn\'t run it and I have about every mod on this site. (It\'s a requirement.) Second: the Idea\'s nice.but this would be a better idea for a two player map, one as dominion, the other as the federation. Other than that, I\'s very well done, if not a little crouded.
said in the last one, I really like the look of this ship, especialy the necells. It just looks really unique yet it works really well. This file comes in an installer so its easy to use for those with a clean A2 install, but those with modded versions of A2 might want to read the install instructions file that come inside the zip.
Because of that, the poly count is a little high, which is the only setback, but I'm sure everybody's upgraded for D3 or HL2 already right? Anyway, this ship is a great download, and this would be near the top of the therotical "must download" list for Armada 2.

the stock Klingon textures. It\'s design is rather interesting but still fits in with common construction ship requirements and it really is just a \"beefier\" version of the basic one bar the addition of an extra forward disruptor beam. For those who have lots of structures or would simply like to build some of the bigger Klingon ships via constructor (Bird of Death, perhaps), this would be ideal. For those who don\'t have the above, it doesn\'t matter, it certainly is worthy of an addition to the Empire. In addition to the actual ship, the mod contains all files for a complete add-on, such as a wireframe and build button (which both look very nice indeed). Anyhow, a fine creation overall, well done! Download now.
countless PotDs and Screenshots over the past year. This Excelsior is originially done by [b]Capatin Fingers[/b] but was retextured by K7A for DoW. The ship is excellent and doesn\'t disappoint. The ship plays well in game and looks very good even in stock Armada 2 so in any modified game it should fit in well. On the downside, and I\'d hate to be negative but there is no wireframe, admirals log bitmap, buildbutons or assimilation textures but I guess the modder has restricted those features to his mod and doesn\'t want to release them separately, I hope ;). A very nice ship, and should definately be downloaded if you are eagerly awaiting the release of DoW with great anticipation. Nice work K7 ;) [b]- IKS[/b]
every sense because just look at the thing! Does that not look frikkin' cool or what?! What amazes me is how Aad managed to balance this so seamlessly. It's got a lot of fire-power, a large amount of health and yet you're going to be waiting a bit for it to work and be spending a lot on it getting going, but, I would just have it to brag about saying I've built one. Com'on! That looks cool! Anyhow, content in here, as expected from Aad has this be a full-piece mod. Custom weapons (not textures) included, along with wire-frame, build-button and admiral's pic and of course the ship odf. This fits right-in at the end of the Federation tech-tree and will become a useful ship to counter the other races pure might (to which in the stock game, the Federation are sorely lacking). Think of this as a heavier alternative to the Sovereign; you won't want an entire fleet made of them because of time constraints, but you will have at least 2 or 3. All-in-all, a very good download for just 4.5mb. In fact, I'm almost inclined to say this has a Klingon-amount of weapons, which, in my case, I won't argue with. Very good take on an 'old' design. Definitely download worthy.

pictures, are how the latinum nebulae are used to make the chevrons on the Stargate and it really does work. The inside of the gate will blind you but venture and ye shall gain access to much riches! To make this better, included in the file are the theme tunes for S-G1 and Atlantis, so you can blast away your enemies, enter the gate and conquer the universe like the Goa\'uld whilst listening to some pretty decent music! This is a rather action packed map, with six players. I recommend two teams, otherwise it could get quite awkward in there. Obviously, the aim is to get your side into the stargate to get the resources, but due to the location of the wormhole and the resources contained within, you\'ll struggle with defending it. Regardless of this, it seem\'s like a great map with some great music, download now.

are not included in this update since the low res ones are smaller and that there's not that much noticable diffrence between the two while in game. Details for obtaining high res textures can be found within the install directions. I also greatly apologize for any inconvenience or frustrations this brought. The Prometheus class is one of the most well known ships from Star Trek, mainly from a new take on Starship Seperation; the Multi Vector Assault Mode. Dispite it's fame, this ship is a rather elusive one in Armada II, especially with MVAM support. While there is a version of the Prommie originally created by Deemon/Gonwee, time had not faired well with it. So here I present a new Prometheus class model with MVAM support, as well as several diffrent textures to choose from. I admit that while I tried to get it as close to the cannon design, it's not perfect. But it is of good quallity, and it brings a bit of Diversity for the class.
Minbari, that being, they deserve a place on the site as they are fine models, and have a history in Babylon 5 Again, as with the Minbari, the three of these ships are suppose to be 'canon'.[/quote]- Ash

stretching. All in all, a good improvement on a great idea.
and/or A2 Mapeditor first). The Program automaticly detects which Armada Version it used to open that .BZN File. [/quote] Here\'s some instruction on how to use it: [quote] You start the .EXE itself by double-clicking on it. A Dialog will inform you that you have no Map select and Ask you if you want to create a new Map. If you chose no the Program ends; if you say yes you will be asked for the Map Name. You will haveto enter the Full Name include the .bzn extension then the Program will start the Armada Version which is in the same Dir as the bzn.exe in editor Mode and creates a new Map. [/quote] Sounds pretty cool :). This will make map making a little bet easier. [u]NOTE: You MUST have the Armada/Armada2 map editor installed or this won\'t work![/u]
for short), this vessel comprises a new and potentially more effective strategy for Starfleet defense than the "run away! RUN AWAY!" separation model sported aboard the Galaxy class starship. You can safely rank me among the Not A Fan school of thought. Even with the numerous redundant systems present in the Prometheus class, and the apparent quality of the design (the vessel is seen three times in Trek --once as the star of the show, once at the end of Voyager, and once in the distant future battling alongside the Enterprise-J against the Sphere Builders in 'Azati Prime' [ENT] ), I don't understand the point of it. Give me a Sovereign any day, or a pack of Steamrunners, before I'll trust my security to a ship whose strength comes from its ability to fight divided from itself. Still, for completeness sake, Armada II in its limited design lacked for a properly endowed Prometheus. For a long, long time, MVAM has been the holy grail of A2 modders. The previous efforts --by Gonwee and Bombomadil, among others-- were, for their time, brilliant workarounds and expert scripting. The recent FleetOps Upgrade Patch for Armada II has given us the ability to fulfill the original intention of the writers who came up with the concept of the Prometheus class.... and here, while not the only one of its kind, is new work on this very old problem in A2. Nice MVAM mod by Thun --bringing the Prometheus class one step class to its full realization. Complete with new sounds, wireframes, and custom special weapons. Deemon's model is the one used here, with a new texture and lightmaps! This one's worth downloading just for that. Aside from Ash's model, there's none that even come close in terms of quality. You've followed the progress of this one in the forums. Get this one today. And hopefully this'll be the last word on MVAM. (If I never hear anyone rave about MVAM again, I may just die happy.) ;) :cool:
Ghost's Compilation Mod, among other sources. However, the novelty here is the inclusion of the starship Premonition in the role of Enterprise-I (which, given the incredible advancement seen in the Enterprise-J, seems highly unlikely). All credit is given for the various starships used, and if you weren't already using the models selected, they're worth a look. If anyone wants credit more specifically given or if permission was required for any of these downloads, please say so in the comments and we'll help Jabsticles get it right for next time. :cool:
all living things on a planets surface. It was used by Lore, Data\'s brother, to wipe out the colony Data was created on and to attempt to destroy the Enterprise. Now you can play the game as a wide range of Crystalline life forms.

a base, he's added on the required parts, edited the odd few things and you then have what I really think is the best Galaxy X class available to download and my favourite ship. The textures are flawless along with a seemless model that contains the battering "Assault Phaser" along with your traditional All Good Things Federation cloaking device. Re-placed hit points and additional nacelle phaser arrays plus visible bridge addons, this truly is THE Galaxy X to get... so what are you waiting for?
kicked off a war that would eventually last fourteen years, and require the very real threat of annihilation from an ancient race that did a credible job of wiping both the Terran Alliance and the Vasudan Imperium out. Countless races had been wiped out by this race, dubbed the "Shivans" by the Terran Alliance. The alliance of the Terrans and the Vasudans and the huge navies built up during the war barely allowed them to survive with the help of records left by a previous civilization wiped out by the Shivans thousands of years before. After fighting off the Shivans in what would later be called "The great war" the two governments put aside their differences and worked towards peaceful coexistence. By the time of the second Shivan incursion thirty three years later the two great powers, once enemies had become firm allies. This race includes the ships of both the GTA and the GVN, now unified under the single command structure put in place previously. This also includes the GTVA Colossus, the largest space faring warship ever constructed and a monument to the ongoing power of the alliance.

use-- and, of course, wind up in the Unfortunate Situation Of the Week because of. Still, k_merse captures what's good about this craft in an excellent model. Download this one and get flyin'. :cool:
ever made for A2, although it's a bit higher poly than some may care for. Still, the attention to details and quality which are hallmarks of k_merse's work (see also: the Luna class starship model) are all on display here. They elegantly demonstrate that nothing is impossible for the dedicated A2 modder. k_merse has done a fantastic job. [quote] The general idea was to have the most details as possible on the model (like all of the torpedo launchers and a detailed narcelle), but still have a playable, mass-producible model with medium polycount. This one uses only about 2100 polygons, a good compromise between quality and usefulness - at least I think and hope :)[/quote] Follow the installation instructions closely (there's no auto-installer) and enjoy this beauty. :cool:
here is a recreation of the city of Atlantis, which albeit seems slightly weird that it is "flying" about in space, this station is capable of being able to build the Puddle Jumpers. I do hope that more versions of this are released in the future as it does appear to have pretty mediocre textures especially in points where it looks almost "bold". This being said, the mesh has been very well re-created for a low poly job, so definite kudo's for that one. All round, another good CDP job, but I think there's been better, still, I'm sure some people will enjoy this a lot and you'll be able to re-create memorable parts from the series now. Download if you want.
and a DefiantNX class ship has been added to the starting units in Instant Action mode.

basic modding. And to top it all, this one even looks like a Construction Ship ;) - SSA
Why? Nobody knows and its unlikely anybody will ever know at this stage. The Shivans do posses a scary technological advantage over the GTVA. When the GTVA thought that they had technological superiority over the Shivans in the last shivan war the Shivans responded with a hundred juggernaughts, each capable of near total annihilation of the GTVA. They shattered the GTVA fleet and punched through to a populated world which was being franticially being evacuated by the alliance. As the alliance was busy collapsing the subspace nodes out of the system the Shivans then collapsed the star, causing a supernova which decimated everything in the system. The GTVA survived, at a cost of most of their fleet and an inhabited system. And now, you have full control of the Shivans devastating arsenal. On the matter of balance, the ships of the FS universe are possibly a tad overpowered for a stock game so they are probably better paired off with either a custom race you have modified to match the sort of firepower the FS universe throws around or the GTVA, which is the other FS race available for download.

via Fleet Operations of Future Wars. For me, whilst uncanon, it looks quite nice. Has the reminence of an Intrepid Class, along with some fancy other bits and pieces scattered around. Can\'t say I\'m too fond of the \'Weapons Pod\' - I find too many ships have that, when not suited, regardless, this is a fine addition to the Federation Fleet. - Ash
stock look, so it is good for those of you that don't have high res models for the cardies, thus it doesn't stand out. On a side note, it includes a HP map of the ship to better modify it. :thumbsup:
editor. Excellent Idea Night Link!
hard unless you do not go near the Borg, but you to to get the transwarp Gate. Unless you are the 8472,Borg or Federation with tranwarp drive.[/quote] Yet another map by Trevor...this one looks difficult ;) .
Freyr From the author:- To withstand the formidable ships of the Dominion, Starfleet decided to improve units of the Excelsior Class Refit. The result was the Excelsior II, ouyfitted with a new stardrive, new nacelles and stronger shields. These ships performed very well and were more than a match for enemy ships. Starfleet Command, however, opted for the Akira Class, as these were easier and cheaper to build. The Excelsior II units were widely used in all kind of actions.
Galaxy re-texture, wow-wee!) and glorious weapons. To quote, \"it does include the Defiant pulses\". Should I stop writing then? This mod does simply enhance looks of the game and does it so very very well. Whilst not everyone may have the ships for textures, many of you will and those who don\'t, the ships used are listed. A lot of the changes, including weapons will affect stock though. You will need to make a couple of very small odf changes to get everything to work properly though, so do just make sure that you have everything ready and good to go before you unleash hell with your new Defiant pulses. The question to ask though, is what is next from EM? Hopefully more of the very stunning same. Besides, the pictures should definitely convince you, even if this review doesn\'t. Of course, there are only so many ways I can say it looks breath-taking and amazing. Take my word for it, the goods inside are very shiny indeed.
called the Beliskner) was seen in Stargate SG-1 & used by our good friend, Thor. Anyway, one to download if your a fan of the Asgard :) - There is an additional readme by wraith shadow in the actual download. The one providing here is by Greathor.[quote]Yeah, both of those are from me which I gave to wraith to write a readme for. You can submit them under my name, sure[/quote] - Ash
which is guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and this does it fantastically! Giving a stunning re-texture to my favourite stock science ship, the Romulan Shadow, it makes it darker, sleeker and generally more fearsome to look at. With an odf that has been re-balanced for the ship to compensate for it\'s additional power (it takes a long time to build and a lot of resources, but it\'s worth it), it\'s brilliance simply comes down into it\'s stunning textures. Try this out now and have a piece of the upcoming Dogs of War mod too. In retrospect. the quality of this I think far excels that of the Sabre released a short while ago, but both are still very good. Nice work here, definitely a download.
I am to believe that this one is around the 1700 mark which is a significant improvement. - SSA
naturally, packs that bit more of a punch. Whilst not seen too often in SG-1, these were dis-continued old fighters that were about a century old and coming to the end of their use for the Goa'uld. Of course, don't expect to take on any capital ships with this...as you'll most likely die. Instead, take a swarm of these and flood the enemy defences with them while the larger and more powerful Ha'tak's can take down the target. In terms of the mod itself, it's up to usual Greathor and co. standard. Comes with very nice admirals pic, build button and wireframe along with one set of textures (which I must say, do look a little 'washy' on the close ups) and a very-close-to-canon mesh, this will be ideal for anyone wishing to expand their Goa'uld side, albeit on the more miniature side of things. Stargate fans, this would be a fun download for you. Non-Stargate fans...want a good looking fighter?
of Prey, sporting some nice textures and a confusing amount of weapons and wings that make it an exciting addition to the empire\'s defence force. Who can candidly turn down the offer of a Klingon ship with tons of weapons, hmm? My only gripe with execution of this was that clearly, the standard BoP odf was modified which in itself is fine, but not when the system hardpoints are weak. You\'ll find though, that this is quite an expensive ship for all it\'s worth and whilst it might boast offence, it sorely lacks defence. In a fleet formation though, this ship would be ideal for hit and run situations, getting the larger and more defended battleships to absorb the weapons whilst these ships fly in and blast the enemy. She comes with an admiral\'s pic, build button and wireframe along with odf\'s for weapons as well as the ship. As well as that, a nice hardpoint map, so you can change them around to your own needs. I think though she would look far better firing a barrage of pulse disruptors over beam disruptors, but to each his own. Still, she\'s a sting in the empire\'s already potent battleforce and will make a worthy addition to the fleet. Q\'apla warriors!
in terms of poly count and overall model size. Plus they're a little unusual while still retaining the classic Starfleet elements-- in the case of Avalon Station, it's partially embedded in an asteroid. R5D5 also includes lightmaps, wireframes, buildbuttons and Admiral's Log pics for his stuff. All in all, this is some seriously awesome mod content, at a time when there isn't much else coming out. A great mod from everyone's favourite modding astromech. :cool:
Excelsior Refit model around, it is a low poly one, and with that, shouldn\'t be any problem for those of you with lower spec machines. - Ash
limit of 4. A set of alternate textures are included with regitration numbers included.
Hawk Light Cruiser - 3 nacelles, 2 on each side and 1 held together on a \"rollbar\". The front is extended out and has the standard Romulan ship-head. She\'s fast. Very fast. Send these in only for recon. Firehawk Medium Cruiser (personal favourite) - 2 nacelles supported by struts on each side with 2 on the dorsal face of the hull at the rear. She\'s bigger and much more powerful than the Sparrow Hawk. One of these can take on a Federation cruiser with ease. Osprey Medium Cruiser - She has a broad hull with a nacelle on each side. She doesn\'t look much like a medium cruiser, but she has speed and attack force. A strike force of these could easily take on a minor enemy fortification. Predator Heavy Cruiser - What she lacks in speed this beast more than makes up for in weapon power. She\'s the ship with 4 nacelles all on the ventral face, an aft section with an impulse drive and the define wings. She makes the Akira look like a support ship. Extras: New interface - This sleek and dark Romulan interface replaces the old boring one with something much more fitting for that of the Romulan Empire. The resource bar at the top has also been re-arranged. Interface features - Buttons and wireframes for EVERY ship AND variant. Admirals pic - Again, for every ship and its variant. Custom weapons - Specially made custom weapons with nice new shiny textures, including plasma torpedoes and beam and pulse disruptors. Shipyard - You can build all 12 ships from the BI:VR shipyard employed for this task. So, what exactly are these variants? Each ship comes with a TMP version (light textures) which is balanced with lighter weaponry and weaker defences in terms of shields and armour. There is an Imperial Fleet TNG version with darker textures, heavier weaponry and defences and a Tal Shiar variant with some dark textures and...well, find out for yourself ;) No stone has been left un-turned for what is essentially, a perfect mod. ALL should download this addon for use in their most likely small Romulan armada and watch as the Romulans bite back. Steamrunners, Norways, Sovereigns...they\'re nothing now! [b]A definite must have.[/b]
launcher with forward and aft tubes. In addition, the Valiant is equipped with three short-ranged defensive phaser array. This weaponry and it's extreme maneuverability makes the ship deadly opponent for any enemy of the Federation.[/quote] This beautiful port from BC is one of those starships I've been secretly hoping and praying someone would render for A2-- and today k_merse makes my wish come true. The Valiant class comes with its own installer, inside of which is everything you need right down to the techtrees. A beautiful contribution from k_merse to the burgeoning numbers of near-future Starfleet vessels I'm ever so happy to see here at A2Files. Download this one right this minute. :cool:
four wormholes all lead to the center of the map. In the center, you will encounter alot of rift makers and battleships, with a few motherships. You have to get through them inorder to get to the other player's maze which intern leads to their base. The trick is that while you navigate through your maze, you will encounter rift makers along the way. The main bases have a planet and two dilithium moons (non infinate) each. While you navigate the maze, you will find nooks with latinum nebulas, 4 infinate moons. You can get these without trouble with the first two nooks, but the rest will have rift makers gaurding the extra resources.[/quote]
as two sets of minable space debris. There are also derelict ships as all of the starting positions.

[quote]Having seen most of their prime action between 2260 and 2345, the Miranda has since been demoted to patrol supply lines throughout the Federation borders. Whilst these vessels are able to survive a fire fight with pirates, they are in no technological order to join combat fleets.[/quote] Another beautiful 'reject' from the Zero Hour mod team. :cool:
fix your problems :) good stuff.
and it seemed like we were witnessing something epic coming to life. Sure enough, the Churchill is every bit as good as we'd hoped, and it's for that reason that we award it the title as 2008 Modding Contest Winner in the category of Best New Ship. We hope you'll agree. :cool:
a good idea and adds a little more power to Species 8472.
Cloaking Device, Phase Cloak Device and Cloak Enhancer Device! Also equiped with Quantum Torpedoes. She don\'t have crew: she is a ghost. If I add crew to she, she can be assimilated... A ghost can be assimilated? I think not. [\\quote]
think the Romulans richly deserve and they really have been given it to them through this model. As a warbird, expect it to be slow, cumbersome and take a lot of resources to build...but expect it to completely balance that by throwing disruptors and plasma torpedoes across space towards the enemy fleets. It's been placed in the "High Poly" section though, as it does have a fairly large poly count, coupled with some high textures (1024 resolution) whilst this ship will look beautiful in game, it might tax some of the lower end systems, so do be warned of that. However, can you REALLY resist the looks (to kill) of the ship below? I know I can't. Romulan fans download now. Non-Romulan fans, here's some target practice...download now!
Fans will be wanting this. - Ash
since that region was just open space this map is not cannon and not intended to be. each player has a starting point which is accessable via 1 entrance only. the rest of the map has ships and stations which are either abandoned or have little health. these ships consist of romulan, klingon, cardassian, borg and federation. Info on Wolf359 Aftermath Assault: the map is based on the battle of the borg at wolf 359. since that region was just open space this map is not cannon and not intended to be. each player has a starting point which is accessable via 1 entrance only. and has a number of stations and ships already completed. this will speed up gameplay and make it more interesting quicker. the rest of the map has ships and stations which are either abandoned or have little health. these ships consist of romulan, klingon,cardassian, borg and federation.
better in my A2 install. Also included are three ships which Mike has not done. The Astral Queen, the Gemenon Trans container ship, and the Olympic Carriers passenger liner.
ship comes with a little yacht, and the mod includes everything you need. They don't come much better than this. Download it right now. :cool:
between the Klingons and Federation in the TOS era, specifically September 2266 (and of course the Romulans are involved). This mod isn't part of the Mod Centre, yet, but it has been on the forums for quite sometime now so if you want to acquire more detailed info about this mod then[url="http://forums.filefront.com/st-a2-modding-editing/302451-4-day-war-mod.html"] click here[/url]. This pack contains 4 vessels from the four main combatant races; [list][*][b]Paris Class Heavy Destroyer [/b](Federation) The Paris Class is a strange but excellent TOS design. It appears on many of the Starfleet charts on the net and detailed information can be found [url="http://www.starfleet-museum.org/paris.htm"]here[/url]. This mod is pretty close to the concept designs and looks great in A2, although it's shape is a bit blocky but it is still a very cool ship. :) [*][b]Constitution Class Heavy Cruiser [/b](Terran Empire) Well this ship is quite impressive, it is definately the best ship in this pack. The level of detail in the ship's design is remarkable and also boasts a very nice textured hull. [*][b] E12 Class Bird of Prey[/b] (Klingons) This bird of prey is a very cool ship. It appears to be a ship that is a bridge between the original D-7's and the TNG BoPs, thus it looks like a D-7/B'rel Kitbash. The textures are a bit monotone but then again the TOS Klingons did like their grey. :) [*][b]Centurion Class BoP[/b] (Romulan Star Empire) Many of you will remember this from Balance of Terror. This is original Romulan BoP and it looks great. This one is very like the canon version, even down to the textures and wing markings. This is a fantastic ship. [/list] Great work from [b]dinosaurJR[/b], can't wait for more releases from this mod, going on what I have seen in the forums and this teaser pack this mod should be one hell of a mod. I suggest looking at the forum to see some truly amazing TOS ships. [b]- IKS[/b]
symetrical maps that can be worked out after you have played a quater of it. Nice work.
by the Zero Hour team (the readme for this set indicates they\'re ALSO formerly of ZH lineage), and while the saucers aren\'t quite as rounded, the ships themselves are every bit as nice. This also includes Milkshape files, admiral\'s log pics, wireframes, build buttons, and pretty standard .ODF files. Nothing flashy here, really. But also nothing that really sets them apart from the aforementioned ZH set. It\'s strange to see two sets of these ships within six months of each other when we\'re just screaming for new content here. I mean, we always need new models for both those with high-end anti-aliasing juggernaut computers as well as barely-running-stock low-end computers. I just really hope that people start turning in new ships (even kitbashes) soon. It\'s all we can hope for, really. :cool:
the newbie staff completely outdid himself in muffing the original review.) All your favourite details of the Excelsior class are here, and it's nice to see the "elder statesman" of Starfleet so nicely represented. Speaking of details, a brief note: Jetfreak went so far as to include two textures --one a "standard configuration" Excelsior and the other a "Dominion War Refit". You may think this means two .SODs, one for the Excelsior / Repulse style of Excelsior, and another for the Enterprise-B / Lakota style of Excelsior refit. This is not the case. The only evidence of a 'refit' comes in the form of some slight colour differences in the warp nacelle. If there were a difference present in the form of the .ODF then it might be justifiably so, but the difference in texture took me the better part of ten minutes to find. I could've found Waldo in that time, faster. (He's on deck 12, hydroponics bay.) :p It's on the nacelles, however, that the .SOD lets these textures down. Hugely. Notably glaring are the intercooler 'fins' on the Excelsior's warp nacelles (they're right on the back)--- they stick OUT of the warp grille!! The blue strip on the Dominion War Refit makes this particularly pronounced. Not Jetfreak's fault, of course. There's only so much you can do with a .SOD that old. But it stands out. Which, really, is where I'd have to ask Jetfreak: we've all seen your PotDs and the high caliber of graphics to which you've modded your A2, and we're all super-impressed. But surely there must be a higher-quality Excelsior model out there SOMEWHERE that'd be more deserving of such a beautiful refit. The octagonal not-quite-rounded low-poly saucer section is probably even more obvious on higher end computers than mine.... I realize Excelsiors are largely cannon-fodder by the DS9/VOY, so a low-poly well-textured Excelsior model is a welcome sight. Maybe a corrected .SOD to match Jetfreak's awesome textures is the next step. Worthy of a look, especially if you're still using 9of9's Excelsior. The original textures have NOT aged well, and Jetfreak's work here gives an old .SOD new lease on life. :cool: - the Kid
base and fleet, so beware! [/quote]
this version and Cylon's, but the designs to seem slightly different, so I'm guessing it's just a popular class name chosen. Anyhow, this ship sports some rather nice textures which I believe to be better than the Atlantis/Pegasus version, but that is open for debate. Regardless, they are nice and do make it look good, the armour effect in particular. It does however lack that of a buildbutton, wireframe and admiral's pic, which I do take to be a shame as it's those nice little touches which really give a mod it's fullness. Still, a dreadnaught is a dreadnaught and except this to "kick some serious ass". Failing that, it just does look good to stare at for a bit. Download now any Stargate fans!

provided, large map. The map has plenty of resources, so don\'t worry about being starved of those. It also has quite a nice varied feeling. It\'s not symmetrical which probably will add a bit more fun to it. The only problem I have with this map, a personal thing though, is that there are derelict construction ships in the centre (guarded by Species 8472 ships). Obviously, as the title suggests, salvage is the name, salvaging is the game but I never really liked doing that. Still, putting it aside, it\'s not too bad a map and defintely worth a try out. Besides, I\'m betting it would make for some great online play.
it remencent of an Armada 1 model. On the good side, the model is balanced, and there are reccomendations for better weapon loadouts, probablly origionally done for Armada 2.5.

Jetfreak released a second ship re-texture pack that included P81's Galaxy. The model was undoubtedly incredible, but it had one little nitpick of a texture bug on a nacelle pylon. Several months ago, the Starbase 34 Compliation Mod debuted on Armada II Filefront. Two of the hero ships were the USS Galaxy and the USS Venture. The Galaxy herself used a model that did not have the little texture bug, and the model mesh itself was a bit more detailed. The Venture model was a slightly modified version of the Galaxy's model, with phaser banks on the nacelles. Thanks to generous help from various members at MSFC, I now present the second release of my Galaxy-Class pack. I've taken a leaf out of Jetfreak's book in terms of organization of content and installation instructions. Hope you don't mind too much JF :D Features and Updates: - Revision of some minor texture issues - Seperate SOD's for each variant - Includes production Galaxy without registries - Hero Picard USS Enterprise-D version is included as well, with custom registries - Also features a Galaxy-Venture refit - ISS Enterprise-D is also included, featuring new, more menacing-looking darkened textures - Various Bonus Content added - Unfortunately, buildbuttons and admirals log pics aren't included, since I don't have enough skill to make them. I might get around to doing it in the not-too-distant future if I get the right help. Stay tuned.... - Ships have been balanced to stock A2 - Thanks to help from Jetfreak and TheStarfleetKid, I've been able to hex-edit the models so that there are now seperate SODs for each variant included in this pack - As another bonus, I have included a hero version of the pathfinder, the USS Galaxy herself, and a set of alternate textures for the Enterprise-D. These alternate textures for both the Galaxy and the Enterprise are 1024x1024, as opposed to the standard files, which are 512x512. Use these only if your computer can handle it; I don't want to hear complaints of computer lag because of the textures. That's why I included the low-res ones in the first place.

taken part in its production. Anyhow, if your looking for a quick fighter that fits in nicely between the Peregrine & Defiant, then this little fighter is for you ;) - Ash [/quote] This is a fix for the Gryphon fighter that should prevent any forms of crashes on it. On a personal level, whilst I do like this fighter, I prefer the Valkyrie fighter as it just seems a bit more full (even though the two designs differ only slightly). That being said, this is a very well done mod which compliments any of the Federation capitals well. Not only that, but it has all the files for a full mod (build button, wireframe, etc.) and gets a thumbs up there. Definitely a worthy download.

port" from Bridge Commander. That is to say, the conversion from BC happened without any attempt at poly reduction. The model is over 10,000 poly-- for a small-scale fast-attack vessel, that's murder for some computers. Although if your computer can handle that many, she's a thing of beauty. You might want to consider making this the "hero ship" equivalent and using the lesser-poly models of the Courageous available as the standard build-and-kill model in your game. Either way, everything is included --the buildbuttons, wireframes and so forth-- so if you can get a single model which has more poly than most stock races do in their entire set of ships and stations combined.... it's definitely worth it. :cool:

not familar with this: Sigma is a FO-based TC that throws pretty much everything we\'re used to out of the window. It completely replaces the trek-based content of the original FO with a universe thought up and created by TUN himself. It makes full use of all the features offered by the enhanced FO engine to the point that sometimes you don\'t even fully realize that you\'re playing A2. It brings fascinating and mysterious NPCs and space wildlife (something we haven\'t seen before) into the game. Oh, and the soundtrack is just fantastic. If you haven\'t played this before, I would recommend to DL this right now. [i]Note: We\'ve been having some trouble with uploading this file.

spelled right) Rabb. There is one infinate moons at each base surrounded by metron nebulas. The bases and the center are also surrounded by metron nebulas. Center has five class 3 asteroids and four y-class planets. I also added wormholes at the bases that lead to the center for easier access to the other bases.

model, as usual :). I highly recomend a download, although you do have to make your own odf.
So why, with a good mod, am I finding it hard to give full marks? It does everything right; give me stunning backgrounds, planetary textures (guys, he's only put on frikkin' clouds that move!) and a few new features above the previous package, but there are just a few things niggling away at me that just make me scream 'patch'! So, lets get the bad stuff out of the way first. The introduction of planetary clouds and rotation is phenomenal, but those who played stock Bridge Commander will remember that planets had those weird 'blocks' of textures because that's how they were done and that appears here. Yes, the planets look lovely, but they also can look quite garing as well. The further back you are though, the better they appear to be, so hold that in mind (and it also seems as if zoom-out has been increased, so for those with a slightly more powerful PC can hold to zoom out and observe more of the battle). The Latinum nebulae, even though changed in the previous version as well still bug me, being basically a yellow rock with slightly darker yellow spots on them. That, but very small too. It just seems inconsistent that miners would dart back and forth to a rock that is the size of a freighter bridge. I've heard of density, but a size increase couldn't harm. A fix of planetary atmospheres (as seen in Legacy) seems to have rendered them...well, non-existent. Did Q not like them? As you can see, there are just these little points that collect up to be quite frustrating and I hope are addressed in a future, but not too future, patch. That said, there's still lots of great stuff in here. The mod nicely splits game-play with graphics, with new asteroids both being stunning to look at and dangerous, as dust damages your shields (hiding place, but not for too long). As mentioned previously, the man has put in clouds that rotate on planets that should have them. Okay, so they're a little quick, but I didn't think you could build a Galaxy class starship in 30 or so seconds. The replaced textures are generally a notch above their previous incarnations, with the detail on dilithium moons being simply phenomenal and the best for them I have ever seen (and I've seen a LOT of dilithium moons). The hues for everything just right and the backgrounds fitting in seamlessly. All-in-all, it's very decent, but I'm afraid only decent and not fantastic. Perhaps I was expecting a bit more from this (and as such, believes it warrants a patch, especially to fix seeming non-features) and perhaps it's not quite as exciting because its been done before, in 1.0. It remains to be seen though for a mod to break the graphical barrier (and hint of game-play changing elements) that Yacuzza has done and for this reason, I still salute him with this piece of work. [Note, .exe for installation included]
\"mod\", if you will, in the Star Fleet Technical Manual, gave us variants like the Surya and the Federation class. When the Phase II designs were turned down, modders then witnessed, in the Motion Picture era, both a major refit to the Constitution, and had a variant handed to them, the equally ubiquitous Miranda class. With TNG came the Constellation class, and by then, other designs like the Akyazi, Akula, Abbe, the Ark Royal, and other such designs had become widely known. Even some of the \"frankenships\" of Wolf 359 had Constitution parts. In fact, by DS9, the torch for the Constitution class --er, that is to say, the warp nacelles-- continued to be carried in such designs as the Curry / Shelley class and the implausibly hideous Elkins variant. Not content to stop there, the mod community assumed that the United Federation of Planets, despite considerable evidence to the contrary, would maintain the very same passion for this design as we do. The results have been given to us in the form of the USS Shaandra elsewhere, and here, in this refit \"24th Century\" version, from VenerableDread. Considering this is one of VenerableDread\'s first released models, the efforts he\'s gone to in order to bring another new lease on life to the Constitution class are greatly appreciated. Fans of the original --and to many, best-- starship that Star Trek has ever had will want to call this model their own. Others may simply download this one because, hey, it\'s a new ship. Bottom line: download this one today. - the Kid :cool:
medafusion. Should be placed in High Poly Models scetion (9000+ polys).[/quote]From long glance at this vessel, you can tell she is a kitbash from Queballs' well known Premonition Model. This is the Luna Class Exploration Vessel - What many may know as the USS Titan (Rikers Ship). Though there have been many sceptics about the class of the Titan, there have also been many designs. I'm sure many people know of infamous Dreadnought-sized Titan Class - It has been incorporated into various MOD's here on A2Files, personally, I had the Titan down as an Akira Class, however we were all wrong. This design (though not 100% accurate) is what the now named Luna Class is. - This is an official design, and recognised by Paramount. The only problem with this model is (yes, you've already read it) the 9000+ polly count. - It still amazes me how people submit stuff like this knowing that they won’t be able to get the full enjoyment out of it, but still. If anyone feels like having a crack to polly reduce this, then feel free. Additionally, if someone does think to do that, may I advise an attempt with Major Payne’s Premonition model before hand - could save you a lot of work. - SSA
some interesting gaming.
more than a simple removal of the conflicting files from this download. I\'ve said it before, I\'ll say it again. \"No wireframes, no buildbuttons, but admiral\'s log pics and new weapons\". There, now I feel better. Worth a download, if you didn\'t have it already. :cool:
quality alternative for those who think the original was just mildy lacking and and can run it. This does seem slightly closer though to the more canon Stargate design. The "base" type thing on top of the ship fits in with the BC-304 line (or the Deadalus Class) and the added radar and spike things give it more of an individiual feel. I say this as it seems to stand out more than on the original version. That is something else particularly interesting about this version, in that it still fits in with the rest of the Tau'ri space fleet, yet is it's own ship, with it's own devastating array of weaponry and funky extra parts. As with the older design, be sure that this will kick some serious ass and to give other Stargate ships a run for their money, bar maybe the Ori ships. Well, regardless, now you have a chance to try it out! Fantastic work and a job well done. Stargate fans, this is simply a must have for your collection.
there is also there is the pathway inside the bajoran wormole which leads to the alternate reality universe, as seen in the Deep Space Nine Series on several occasions. there are several nebulas, 1 planet (either bajor or the Vorta homeworld kareel prime), and 1 dilithium moon. there is an abandoned cardassian outpost at the wormhole entrance in the alpha quadrant.
its own as a concept until the Galaxy class was seen in action during "Encounter at Farpoint". The Galaxy EVO mod was one of those developments that came out of the events of "Generations" and the debut of the Prometheus class design. Suddenly people realized that having the civilian-filled saucer section limping away at impulse probably wasn't going to guarantee anyone's survival. And LC Amaral designed the Galaxy EVO in order to have warp in both sections of the ship, making the whole concept a little more easy to live with. Dan1025 has done a remarkably good job with the original Bridge Commander model, porting it and reducing the poly count significantly while not taking anything away from the overall design. However, this mod requires the FleetOps patch version 1.2.5, which means that if you have any intentions of using this straight into stock, you'll have to figure out a few work-arounds. Moreover, despite the Titan class' eventual change in design to a ship more reminiscent of the Akira class than the Galaxy class (and its re-naming as the Luna class), this ship is referred to as the Titan class in the .ODF files. Simple enough to switch, if you care one way or another. Everything you could want --a full set of build and weapons buttons, textures with and without registry, wireframes and admirals' log pics-- it's all here. Dan1025 has shown the importance of paying attention to the little details with this mod. The final product demonstrates that sort of quality through and through. Although I'm not a fan of the design, I do appreciate the work that went into this mod, and hopefully, a download will mean that you will, too. :cool:

While it is still possible to build multiple stardrive sections, this at least limits it by the number of crew you have. A nice alternative to Gonwee\'s.
found[url="http://bridgecommander.filefront.com/file/Olympic_Class;2074"]here[/url]. Standing at roughly 2500 polys it is a quality vessel. The model itself, being from Bridge Commander looks well in Armada 2 and the retextures done by [b]Tycoon[/b] are of decent quality, similar to the quality you see in his Zero Hour models which is quite crisp and sleak. Personally I am not a fan of the Olympic Class but the ship does look good alongside your fleet in game. Features that will provide useful ingame is a complement of Federation Repair Crew which makes this a vital ship on the field. A solid mod - good quality - and plays well in game. ;) - [b]IKS[/b]

she can use her Romulan stealth to sneak up on one, deliver her payload then disable the target. Still, the design does not vary too much from the original Bird of Prey (Romulans) which keeps this in touch with what it is supposed to be. The textures have been darkened a little bit and Romulan-green added, making it a very stylish TMP Romulan cruiser. As she's TMP era, don't expect her to be going toe-to-toe with a Sovereign class anytime soon, unless you decide she should get a "refit". Still, the ships are powerful and they can easily take out other cruisers equivalent of other races so expect these to leave debris in space. Romulan fans, I recommend this a lot, download now.
there\'s a lot to be said for the approach taken by Wrath of Achilles. This guy turns out truly ASTOUNDING quality models. And he does \'em one at a time. Don\'t believe me? Go check the single ship releases he\'s done for the Cardassians. He\'s done more for them than Enabran Tain himself! ....wait, what? What d\'you mean, Achilles is working on a total conversion too??? *sigh!* It\'s so BORING waiting for new files to come in. Surely y\'all can send SOMETHING for me to upload? A ship! A station! A piece of space debris! A great bleedin\' asteroid in space! Picard\'s head! SOMETHING! You must understand how underutilized I feel as a moderator right now. It\'s not very good for self-esteem. Why, I believe I hear Freyr just sobbing away from here--- and I just KNOW it\'s not because he feels sorry for the people who tried to beat him in multiplayer! My emotional needs aside.... this little (and I emphasize LITTLE, as in \"not a total conversion\", as in \"something at LAST, thank the GODS I can do something\") ---- ---as I was saying, this little project of Achilles\', reproducing an old design of Deemon\'s from A1\'s venerable Millennium Project, give the Klingons a new toy to play with. The Bat\'leth class (not to be confused with the Sword of Kahless class) battlecruiser is a formidable weapon for the Empire. There is a lot in the plus column, to be sure, but there are a few drawbacks. No wireframe or Admiral\'s Log pic are included. Sure, it takes the average modder no time to do such things.... the same could be said to the author of the file. Further, a few on the forums have mentioned that they\'re not exactly keen on the two neck design. I don\'t know, I\'m really more taken aback by the giant symbol of the Klingon Empire on the underside. Perhaps this is why the ship is not armed with a cloaking device, hmm? The power requirements to hide a symbol that big would make the engines useless! ;) Still, with a few tweaks and bits here and there, this ship\'s sure to give a few nightmares to the enemies of the Empire, and bring further glory and honour to all warriors who use her guns to conquer. Honour the Wrath of Achilles.... with a download. :cool:

However, I suppose that he's simply assumed that by now everyone has the finer details of the Federation (build button, wireframe, admiral's log pic) because not only does this lack for those, but the readme has no sprite / techtree entries to show you how if you don't know. If you didn't know, you better find somebody who does. And fast. Nice ship. Nice textures. No details. I've come to believe that we at A2Files have a right to expect it ALL to be done right. And that's really the only fault I can find. Download this one as soon as you can. :cool:
random places, and is well done. Well worth a download.
the Federation a real kick with one of these in the fleet; think of it as a more agile and slightly toned down Sovereign and that's basically what this is. History aside, I've got to say that personally the Ronin is a great looking ship that doesn't go against the Federation philosophy whilst still having weapons. With that in mind that, I can confidently say that Aad has faithfully re-created the ship for spangley A2 use. And a use from it thou shall recieveth. You get the choice of two pretty well balanced ships to put in; the powerful explorer type vessel (stronger than the stock Sovereign and Galaxy) or the more powerful battleship version, which boasts a couple of extra weapons. Either way, you're looking at something that is pretty powerful and not to be underestimated. Balance is as expected with Aad, as is the quality of model and textures which from the screenshots is pretty easy to see as being high quality. As expected again, the mod package is complete, with build buttons and Borg textures to mention just some of the stuff looked for in a single file. There isn't really much else to say about this one. Generally very high quality, will fit snuggly in in-game, both as a powerhouse and a looker and will certainly quench any thirst you had of needing a new ship to defend the Federation.

the tools necessary for creating ODFs, TTs and Sprite files, and with that in mind I set forth on my mission. I would like to thank Starbase34.net for the extensive research they did into the ODFs for making ships/stations and weapons, as that was a big help in writing all the coding in for the ODFs. I do not have any blank templates for you to use, its build as you go, and that is, in my opinion, all you need.

e-mail. We spoke recently and their web site is included in the readme. If you want, you should be able to contact them no problem.[/quote]And with that, going by the screenshots, this is a very neat addition to Armada II. As with all \"main\" Tholian vessels, they share the same shape (I know two I am using for ZH use the same shape) though as you can see, the textures make all the difference. I am however curious as to the Tholians using Torpedoes? - Maybe I didn\'t pay enough attention to the Ent-Mirror Universe :p Nevertheless, a lovely ship here, and for any Enterprise or Tholian fan, this is (without question) a MUST! ;) - However, the \"only\" fault with this is the polly size which stands at a whooping 2000 (for the role of the ship) this is slightly high, however one can learn to cope. Good going Slider ;) - SSA
wireframe, weapon ODFs, texes and sound FX and much more! I even wrote a Point Defense Laser special weapon so it could fire on torpedos like in the movie. As Wiley Coyotes textures were made for a highly detailed ship, I had to draw one or two things myself using paint. If you examine each TGA you might find some details I left out, but in general it should be to everybodys satisfaction. The screenshots were made by Jetfreak, except the first five, as Jet\'s version differs a little from my final model. Anyway, the important thing is: If you like the ship: DOWNLOAD! And fly around with it, marveling at its beauty. If you dislike the ship: DOWNLOAD! And BLOW IT UP!!! Let your anger run free! Have fun! ;) Merough
are spectacular. This design is a community favourite and the results in this version of it speak for themselves. Honestly, there were so many fantastic entries in this year's modding contest it was hard to choose only one. With work of this quality, we're hoping that maybe next year will be Icewolf's turn to win it. Check this one out even if you have the original. :cool:
Gate. But you not that Transwarp Gate is the only way in so if it got kill you will not be able to get into the Shipyard Haven. But if it got kill than you are inside the Shipyard Haven there a way out anther Transwarp Gate.
and look much smoother. This mod is worth the download for any Romulan fan!

vessel was known as the Serenity, back when a science fiction called Firefly was still on the air. Nowadays that show is widely available for cheap on DVD, as is the follow-up film "Serenity". The sudden, unnecessary death of this show, and its treatment by FOX during its run, compose one of the cruelest stories in the history of science fiction on television. Produced and created by Joss Whedon, the man behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its universe, Firefly married together two genres --the western, essentially, in space-- with spectacular and greatly underrated results. Star Trek promised us "Gunsmoke in Space". Firefly took it to the next step. And with an ensemble cast of talented actors and a solid premise, this was one show that was taken from us too soon, with a legacy worthy of legend. Now you can bring that Firefly-class transport into the Armada universe AT LAST. And this one's a worthy model. It even includes the "crybaby" noise beacon that was used in the pilot episode. And it comes with all the bells and whistles --buildbutton, wireframe, admiral's log pic-- but that's where the appreciable contribution ends. For some reason, the .ODF has Serenity equipped with limited armaments, something the ship never had ---after all, why keep Jayne around otherwise? :D Also unfortunate is the lack of the ability to launch the shuttles (the vessel has two such shuttles) nor any .SOD for the tiny craft. It's too bad because really that's all that's missing. Oh, and the possibility for improvement also would include sound files compatible just with this ship, taken from the show. (One other thing-- the vessel's a bit more..... brown? than I remember. I seem to recall Serenity being a tin and silver colour, not the brown of this vessel. But far be it from me to complain at the sight of a brown coat of paint. Get it-- brown coat?) :lol: And no "ragtag Colonial Fleet" is complete without this vessel-- the SFX guys on the new Battlestar Galactica also worked on Serenity, and they included at least one Firefly-class transport in the miniseries! (They also included a Constitution class starship that may or may not be named Enterprise....) So, if you're a fan of Firefly, get this now. If you're not a fan of Firefly, get the DVDs and you will be downloading this little gem of a ship in no time. If only it came with a readme file.....

ships, saves putting them in the \"Others\" category. - SSA
personal build of A2 went to hell, and I couldn\'t get it to load. Unfortunately, no mention of required mods etc. was included so I don\'t know if it\'s my install of A2 or this map that\'s the reason it won\'t load. (I also don\'t know if it\'s responsible for the crash-death of my A2 install. Scary thought. Probably not true.) Anyway, my problems aside, here y\'go. And as a note to thewhitewizard, please, in future, advise us if we need to add something in order to make your map work with a stock A2 build in the \'requirements\' box. This map promises quite a bit (the Swarm, for instance) and I\'d hate for it not to deliver. - the Kid :cool:
point though that this game doesn't only support Star Trek play, but more on this later. What we have is a ship of the Imperial, from the hit-game Battlefleet Gothic, a spawn from the table-top game Warhammer 40K. The Imperial (of men) is one of the many races vying for planetary conquest along with the expansion of their empire in the futuristic universe. Call this a sample then of the game. It's a powerful one at that. Don't be deceived however by the large amount of weapons that this ship has and believe me, it has a lot, however they've been fire-arc'd meaning wherever you attack this beast, it will fire 'something' at you at the very least (which, for note, I recommend attacking from the back, it's not quite as painful). The brilliance is, it's not all beams and cannons in one direction. The devastating forward rails will grill you if you wonder in front, whilst the barrage of pulses from the sides will get at your fleet. In short, this is a fleet buster. The ship it self does look really quite good, especially for a first attempt. Whilst not being fully in-the-know of BFG, I DO know this is pretty damn close to the original design, so a particular well done for that (as well as using advanced techniques with the weapons). Complete with wireframe and build button, this is a download for all your curious people out there and anybody else who likes to dabble a bit in the 40K universe. Sufficed to say, I recommend it.
damagetextures. This file contains 3 versions: the oiginal Galaxy with the possibility of saucer and stardrive section sepeation, the Venture . The Galaxy Class Venture variant is an upgrade of the original class. Starfleet needed a stronger battleship in the Dominion war. These ships performed very well and played a major role in combat. the Galaxy refit The Galaxy Class, outdated by the new Sovereign class, needed an upgrade and was therefore refitted extensively. Armament and defense systems were upgraded and the class was equipped with a third nacelle allowing higher warp speeds. Armed with new devastating plasmacannons, this class can fight off any enemy ship." ************************************************************************************************************** Important Note: You need to install the Star Trek Armada II Patch Project 1.2.5 first, otherwise the special weapons won't work.

this looks fantastic! Look at the pictures for a mo, just look at them. The basic version is not what I'd call the Venator, but a new class, but that's by the by. It looks very nice and sports all that is needed for the Romulan battleship. In terms of balance, it fits completely in, replacing the old Venator class from stock and will have no adverse effect on gaming. It's the Vulture you have to watch out for. Being a variant, you expect it to have a bit of a difference and it certainly does. The Romulan-tweaked Poleron cannon (from the Vor'Cha in stock) has been given to the Vulture (as visible by the red hangar on the lower side of the ship) which acts the same but also does a lot of damage to the enemy, making it very useful when out-matched by a larger foe, or for taking down larger installations in fewer hits. Of course, the subtle differences in cost mean that it's still kept balanced. Contained within though are build-buttons, wireframes and admiral pics for both along with further instructions for installation. Heck, it also comes with Borg textures! Altogether, this is a very good pair of warbirds, definitely for the collection.
what it is in short, but in long... A project undertaken to create a better looking Armada 2, simple, you say? Perhaps, however, I haven't gone over pretty much every texture file in-game to try and make it look nicer and I'm willing to bet you haven't either. On-top of the previous 1.2.1 version, you can expect a few more ship/station textures replaced and weapons...and the background...and it still works online! Yup, the point of this modification is to be able to play a greatly enhanced, graphics-wise, version of Armada 2 to play on-line. The advantage more-so than that? Well, as it is only textures, your opponent doesn't need this (though it is recommended as it looks rather nice). It also comes in a handy .exe so you can just install it by a few clicks of your mouse. In fact, the only bad thing I can see is of the rather large download size, which is 5x larger than the previous version, of course it is all worth it, so if you're a 56ker, I'd stick with it. To point out, the quality of the 1.2.1 upgrade a year ago was really quite something, so it's going to be pretty obvious that the upgrades in this pack are going to make it even better than the previous one. So, do you want to blow up the enemy with some new phasers and quantum torpedoes, or stare at the new backgrounds? Perhaps you'd like to see the newly lit planets or observe your Defiant's blasting the enemy starbase with a flurry of pulse phasers. The choice, is, of course, yours... ... ...of course I thoroughly recommended it! Download this now, or forever be missing out!
actions will have to be made, as well as careful defending of yur wormhole which lies literally right on the other side of the opposite wormhole, so be careful. It does seem though as if some starting places are blessed with more resources, so you\'ll wanna watch that. Other then that, good job, well done. Download for a tightly-pitched battle.
stock cubes, and this texture is a nice addition. ;) - SSA
who has been very busy this week! At 2800 poly it\'s not a bad size for a flagship, although the texture sizes might be a problem for some. While this model might be a bit more underwhelming at first glance, due to its apparent lack of lighting and/or glows, at least it gives the community something new. Download this one today! :cool: - the Kid
mod. (I realize it doesn't *say* it's from the Project ACOM team, but trust me, it is.) - the Kid :cool:
which the Federation has encoutered a highly advanced species called the Zyclan, and the Federation has been put on the defensive. This is the first chapter of the first novel. It is well written and i cant wait to read the next chapter!
longer neck but built up main hull make it a dominating sight in-game, where you should put this very quickly. This ship has lot's of nice points and I can see few, if any, flaws to it. Obviously, the long neck will be a weakness but it's a Klingon ship, it's bound to be able to make up for this with it's sheer amount of weapons! At a low-ish poly count, you can expect to have quite a few of these TOS ships on screen, recommended for guarding your poorly armed mining ships or resource stations as these ship's look as if they could hold out long enough for your big'uns to arrive and thwart the enemy, Klingon style. The aft section, as mentioned above, has quite a bit of style to it and particularly from behind, it doesn't look like your traditional Klingon ship, however it's nothing bad, so enjoy it. An old, but very nice design. Kudo's to you Terradhyne...download now!
