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
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
for Armada 2.5.
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!
the saucer section, and the necels are just intreguing and that gives it its quality value, and what make this ship so great. It looks excelent and is another great ship to have in your game ;) Download!
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
in the README, if there are any problems contact: email@example.com[/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
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
screenie, this is a smart looking ship. See the readme for more information. Enjoy It!!!
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!
other Enterprise. This file also includes other Textures for my first Enterprise to make it to the uss constellation.[/quote]So, we\'ve the USS Enterprise, and if preferred, the USS Constellation (where the Constitution has gone, I\'m not sure) :lol: Still one for TOS fans here, a definite download. Note, there is a German (I think) ReadMe included within the download. - Ash
commander, and the same goes for A2. A very nice, detailed ship this is.
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.
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
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:
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.
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!
some wonderful stuff yet again. Here is what the package includes:[quote]1. 6 Ships, 1 Station 2. Lightmaps 3. 3D-Borg-Textures 4. Rotated HardPoints 5. Wireframe, Build Button, Admirals Pic 6. New weapons: Phaser & Pulse Phaser & Torpedos 7. Animated construction ship 8. Installer for Entries 9. detailed installation-instructions in english and german 10. english and german odf files Featured ships: Freighter Construction ship with workerbee Surya Coventry Saladin Akula San Francisco Yard[/quote]I think you can all agree with me, that this is a must download for TOS fans ;) - Ash
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:

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.

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:
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:
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.
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.
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:
appears to be nicely balanced against comparable ships.
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:
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:
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]
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
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:
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.
addressed time and time again) - though I guess some people can\'t read instructions. Nevertheless, this is a nice addition, and best of all, comes without a registry. All we need now is an Excelsior Refit with this look, and we are settled. - SSA
that, this comes with Kirk Sounds, I presume from the TOS shows, though some movie quotes may be included. Regardless of all that, this would be a sure download for each and every TOS & Kirk fan. ;) - Ash
Note that it is high poly, so make sure youve got the system power to run this. Thanks to Michael Kelly for converting this ship to Armada 2. DOWNLOAD!!!
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.
naccels being blue Download? : if you want description: great little texture of the nemisis sovereign At least this one works!!! But the installiation instructions leave a lot to be desired !
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.
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.
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.

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.

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).

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?

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:

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
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.
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

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:

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

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.

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:

model, as usual :). I highly recomend a download, although you do have to make your own odf.
\"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
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:
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]
Build button, wireframe and Admirals Log pic are all included. Worth a look. :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:
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.
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:

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.

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.

rather than build it. Nicely done, but a bit too weird for me...
points rather than the standerd one.
in the fleet (slower only to the Prometheus) being able to hold its own in conflict (\"she\'s no Galaxy\" but she held out against the Borg) and to house all of its crew comfortably (yes, even Neelix). Even though she\'s a bright design and a loved ship, we only have had two versions of it on the site (Deemon\'s and P81\'s)...until now! Think of this as the mid-way version. It\'s generally better quality than Deemon\'s but not as high as P81\'s. Its poly count is in between the two. It can run on mid-range PC\'s, but it\'s more than just \'the middle\'. Do we like it though? Well, I think the model is great and so to are the textures, but I can\'t help but think that there\'s just that \'something\' off with them. They\'re off a high standard, especially for a conversion, but something doesn\'t sit well with me about them. This doesn\'t mean to say though that I don\'t like it, as I do, definitely. However, when does my opinion out-do all of yours? I\'m sure many people will love this and they\'ll say to me \"how can this NOT be your favourite?\" but, to each their own. Included are low and high resolution textures allowing you to pick for your computer accordingly and necessary files to run it. Other than the model and textures, an odf is included to account for all hard-point changes, but it\'s the same Intrepid, stats wise, that you\'ve been using since the game came out. A recommended download and worthy replacement (and new option) for the bright Intrepid class. Definitely worthy.
Due to their age however, these ships are no longer at their best, and have such been reduced to more casual vessels, complimenting the fleet.[/quote] Nice work from Ash and his Zero Hour crew. :cool:
(IIRC). Best Regards R5D5
they just look better! [quote]This zip file contains a construction ship a heavy construction ship and a worker bee, a High res textures with alpha channel.[/quote]
seen in "Hope and Fear" (VOY). Technically not a Federation starship, but rather an elaborate ruse perpetrated by the alien named Arturis, the Dauntless design apparently so impressed Starfleet that they rushed a non-slipstreaming version into immediate production. Whether or not you believe the story, you won't believe the quality of this mesh. Dan poly-reduced this one considerably, but it still sits at well over 4000 poly. That's less than half of the original mesh, and it makes this little ship look fantastic. As always, the included details --build button, wireframe, Admirals Log pic, even new torpedoes based on stock-- are exemplary. You won't be disappointed with this one. Download it today. :cool:
And by "Starfleet's", I mean "your". Best of all, this one comes fully loaded. Wireframe, buildbutton, Admiral's Log, and a new pulse phaser (not a new texture, just a new weapon) as well! Download this one right now.
Peregrine class fighters. To that point, fighter combat in Trek was conjectural, but sources all over the Trek community figured that the Federation would eventually have to work its way up to carriers of some kind. It made sense-- naval combat here on Earth went from ships ramming and boarding each other, to ships gunning for each other, to ships shelling each other, to ships launching smaller craft to drop bombs and torpedoes and things against each other. Why not the same thing in Starfleet? The Peregrine fighter design you see here is a wonderful example of that design. With its twin-boom tail and distinctive diamond shape, the Peregrine is reminiscent of WWII-era fighters like the P-38 Lighting and P-61 Black Widow. This mod by Dan1025 (one of many this week from that incredible modder) includes everything you need to add the Peregrine to your game, right down to the weapons and wireframe, the buildbutton and the Borg textures. (Actually, the Borg version looks particularly menacing, although why or how the Collective would assimilate a simple fighter when they could grab a whole carrier is a good question.) Definitely worthy of a download. :cool:

rotated hardpoints; new weapons and multiple languages for the .ODFs; wireframes, build buttons and admiral's log pics.

strange at certain angles, but that might just be me. Good work.
get stuff from modders who don't frequently submit stuff and come out with absolute wonders. Needless to say from that, this is definitely the latter. Contained within are no less then 6 completely new (and one revised) non-canon ships...they all look great. Ranging from your fighters and shuttles to your large test-bed's and heavy cruisers, this pack almost looks as if it's segments within Starfleet. By this, I refer to the insignia's and designs, almost as if they belong to a group (think of Red Squadron and Valiant). Whilst this immediately caught my eye, I realised that it does make a lot of sense. Don't think that these craft are the pleasantries of the Galaxy and Excelsior, these are the Defiant's and Sovereign's of Starfleet and once again, they look great. Obviously it'd take a long time to individually review 8 ships, but there are general things that definitely should be pointed out. From what I've noticed, they do seem to be relatively balanced with stock. To the degree that the shuttle would get destroyed by a Bird of Prey in no time, whilst the largest craft would handle wtih severeal BoP's at once. Content is all there too. Build button's and wireframes for every craft and admirals pic's (very actiony, you'll see what I mean when you download this, which you will) which is a nice feature and displayed, the poly counts are not very high whatsoever, as in they stick well within stock counts. What does this mean? Well it means that you could, if you wanted to, build hundreds of fighters and shuttles with no loss of quality of gaming, likewise if you wanted fleets of the big cruisers, that'd be no problem. No stone has been left unturned. In fact the only thing I've noticed wrong with this pack is the fact that there isn't a lovely shipyard to go with these, which I think would be utterly appropriate. To focus on a few of the ships, my personal favourites are the Metropolitan class, labelled as something of a stepping stone before the Ambassador whilst looking very cool and maintaining the fact of being before the better Ambassador class, the Starchaser class is big and bulky and still looks utterly awesome, whilst the Stormrider, the nifty fighter, looks to fit the bill well. Heck, they all look good, no faults with any. This pack also contains instructions as to how to create small variants (eg. carriers) and some new textures for weapons. This is an absolutely brilliant pack and without a doubt worthy of your download. Excellent work on this one.
details about armament, windows etc. are left to the imagination. I read somewhere, the Norway is about the same size as the Intrepid class. Therefor I made details, as phaserarrays and windows, of the same size as with this class. The Norway is classified as a medium cruiser.

as many of you will already know, this is the "MVAM" Intrepid. I've never myself been able to work out why all these moving parts (the Intrepid nacelles, the Bird of Prey wings) etc are thought of as MVAM, but still. This is a darn good idea, though the ship poly count lets it down (as it is quite high) so for a hero ship. The only other problem I can think of, would be having this in fleets (for those with powerful PC's). Loads of ships, and having to get them all to change may get annoying. - SSA
stuff we've received since we got back in April. The 2009 film version of Star Trek gave us the new, revamped take on the Enterprise. It's looked okay before, a little too shiny (better to reflect the lens flares off of, don'tcha know), but in-game in A2, it looks spectacular. Beginner / Amateur has always given us top-grade stuff before. This is an exception-- it's even better than usual. Download this right now. :cool:

In assault mode, the alpha unit activates 2 forward tubes, the same as on the beta unit. All 3 sections in assault mode have now 8 tubes.

dish in front, a pair of quad torpedo launchers on the underside of the saucer, and a sort of graceful design which actually used its low-poly saucer as a design feature. R5D5's mod pack proved that low-poly and brand-new designs can be the same thing, and can look good doing it. This new variant of the Starchaser goes in an altogether different direction. It carries a "hangar-pod" on the back of its engineering-hull and can build a scout-probe and four variants of fighters/scouts. Some of these birds were part of the original ship pack. Others are brand new and look the part. New work from R5D5 is always a welcome thing. It might take a little time to get used to, since it looks awkward (it's not a through-deck carrier, for instance), but it works fairly well in stock A2 and just might be what your A2 mod has been looking for. :cool:
Both Worlds' Part 2. You could see 3 of them for few seconds while the Borg Cube was passing Mars (but the big boy took care of the missiles very quickly :D ). Additionally you are getting a new armed production structure for the missiles. Both models have a high poly count. - TParis
effects, and all the other stuff you'd expect. It's already been ported to other games, and now it's finally available for A2. It seems that the Planck class starship is the bridesmaid of this A2 modding contest, and it's unfortunate. Indeed, if we had models of this quality for every starship in the game, think of how fantastic this game would look. Ultimately, and unfortunately, it was the judges' decision not to award either of the prizes to the Planck. That doesn't mean she's been overlooked, however. Far to the contrary-- this is quality work and fully deserving of praise. :cool:
now there\'s this. Same drill as earlier this week: If you love the Connie, get this one today. If not, you\'ll want it anyway, because she\'s never looked better. Well, unless you really liked the look of her in one of the movies. Then I dunno what you\'re going to do. Download this file, perhaps.

ship itself is a fairly nice one, good textures are used, and the model appears to be fairly smooth. This one would probably serve as the 'middle' of the three ships, being the medium strength. Again, I may be wrong, that is just my take on it. :) - Ash One of Three: [file="80784"]http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Sunna_Class;80784[/file] Three of Three: [file="80786"]http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Woden_Class;80786[/file]
the Sabre is a bare-bones design meant to simply get in the way, to my mind the Steamrunner has a sort of cavalry-unit fast-attack feel to it. Why they made THIS ship the artillery bucket for the stock Feds is beyond me. But this model by K7A for the upcoming Dogs of War mod (\'upcoming\' as it\'s been for some time now) looks truly spectacular. Now maybe everyone else will see what I see in the Steamrunner: grace, speed and power. Either that or you\'ll use it to replace your stock artillery bucket and that\'ll be the end of that. - the Kid :cool:
- The \"catamaran\" holders that connect the aft and saucer hulls along with the nacelle pylons and the aft platform module are the same as the Akira. The nacelles themselves are a cool oval shape and the saucer is a nicely designed hull design. I like the way the saucer is divided into little sections, reminds me of the Antithesis Fleet, as it gives it the impression of heavy armour. The saucer also has the Sovereign\'s escape pods (the small gold hexagons on the hull). The one nitpick I have is the textures. I think they are good but I think a darker hull would suit the vessel better, a hull colour-scheme similar to the canon Sabre or canon Steamrunner Classes or even just some hi-res textures. This mod contains two variations of this vessel, the Forerunner and a replacement for the Akira. If you intend to keep the Akira that you already have ingame then just add the Forerunner Class, if you wish to replace the Akira with this vessel then add the files in the \"fbattle2\" folder. I thoroughly give this ship a :thumbsup:. It\'s great to see new ships especially ones that are brand new designs ;) [b]- IKS -[/b]

designs available, with an interesting setup bearing a more-than-passing similarity to that mighty class of vessel. Dan1025 has put some time and effort into this conversion, and does it ever show. The level of quality of the textures is matched (as always) by the thorough details: admirals' log pic, build button and wireframe along with separate .ODF entries for the weapons. In short, as Federation battleships go, you couldn't ask for much better than the Victory class. Download this one right now. :cool:
Technology, which allows it to look like any enemy ship targeted. Like cloaking, it can not attack while masked, but it cannot be detected as an enemy ship by the Tachyon Detection Grid. The only way it is possible to tell it apart from a normal ship is that it will not obey to commands. The Computer cannot tell the differance.[/quote] Well that sums it up! If you want to build an Incursion class, download this ship.
been hard to please these two sections of the community..... but today Aad Moerman gives us his latest design, the Nimrod, which promises to have something for both. Combining no less than a full quartet of Sovereign nacelles into a modified Akira frame intended to hold 'em, and with a little story to explain the situation, the Nimrod class looks and plays with the combination of beauty and power that one expects of any good Starfleet vessel. She's a proper lioness in that she's got teeth as well, including new weapons .ODFs based on stock and included by Aad Moerman for your modding enjoyment. There's also a full set of in-game details to suit. The Nimrod class gives a new meaning to the term "best of both worlds" and commends itself to be downloaded, by you, as soon as possible. :cool:
seen (having only appeared once due to a loss of the CGI model). [quote]Designed as an alternative to the Achilles Class. The Norway is specifically used for quick assault runs, and whilst not as heavily armoured, nor as durable as the Achilles, the Norway is considerably cheaper to build, requiring less resources and production time.[/quote] Whether you're looking for a replacement for an older Norway, or just something else to add to the canon ranks, your wishbone has come true.

between should look like, whenever it came into the scene. However, the Apollo class --in addition to the appropriate sensor dome, or weapons pod, depending on your version of the ship-- really suits an already beautiful design, the Ambassador class. Dan1025 gives us a really gorgeous version of the Apollo class, by way of Zero Hour. This one comes complete with all the necessaries-- a wireframe, a buildbutton, an admiral's log pic and really nice Borg textures. This one's worth a download simply because of the pedigree-- between Ash and Dan, I don't know who's the better modder, I just know they're both among the best we've ever had in this community.

good news is that this mod contains everything you'd hope for-- build button, wireframe and admirals' log pic --but the overall quality of the textures isn't as good as you'd probably hope, althouh the .SOD reduction puts this one around 1500 poly. Hopefully some of these kinks will be worked out in the 2.0 version, as the original (from Bridge Commander) is truly awesome and an equally detailed port (with alpha channel) will follow. Worth a look for all you future-Federation lovers. :cool:
section rather fiercely shredded and blown out in the trailer. However, the very fact that it's been seen and mentioned means that someone is going to try to build her. That someone is Sin87, whom you may remember from the recent version of the USS Enterprise released here, intended rather audaciously to match the new design, based solely on the scant visual evidence we've received to date. These models use stock Legacy textures, and perhaps it's to the author's credit that those textures be used since they look pretty nice. Not only that, but this justifies the inclusion of the Proxima class, converted by Sin87 from Legacy into Armada II because he got tired of waiting. When you want something done.... do it yourself.

of the class include T'Kumbra and Sutherland [*] [b]Bonchune[/b]: Similar to the Nebula design with minor alterations. Similar versions of this ship appeared prominently in the latter stages of DS9 and while it actually appeared in "Message in a Bottle" [*] [b]Phoenix[/b]: in this pack as [i]fnebulasr[/i] this appeared in TNG: The Wounded. It's main features are the rounded AWACs Pod. [*] [b]Melbourne[/b]: This is the famous Wolf 359 Nebula Class, it has two smaller nacelles mounted aft above the saucer. [*] [b]Prototype II[/b]: The "original" Melbourne Class, this has the two minor nacelles protracted away from the main hull at aft while it's main nacelles are connected to a nacelle-holder that is basically the Galaxy nacelle-holder upside down. [*] [b]Prototype III[/b]: This is a variation on the Prototype I (which is not here in this pack) but has elements of the original Nebula and Bonchune variants, basically the same AWACs Pod. As Shadow stated it appears in Sisko's office but was built as a predecessor to the Melbourne model for BoBW [/list] This mod really is the essential Nebula pack for Armada 2, granted it's missing the Nebula Prototype I and the DS9 model which took part in the Battle to retake Chin'toka (Changing face of Evil). The quality is really good, almost perfect. Standing between 2280-2840 polys the models with their excellent but higher Res (512 x 512)textures might be too much for some but if you have a good PC then these are a definite download. Great work! :thumbsup:
SPECTACULAR. The enhanced details and fine little improvements may only be detectable to the eyes of Dawnstar fans (like me), but they make all the difference and they're well worth a download. Note that you'll require the original Dawnstar model, not the recently refurbished version with new nacelles. Definitely something you'll want to add to your fleet, Dawnstar fans. :cool:

is something I rather like. What makes this different to the other version is that this is now in SOD format, meaning it can go straight into game. Whilst the textures are stock (which might cause a pain to some of you but I personally don\'t mind as the Galaxy class textures were some of the best from the stock game), the model is definitely refreshing and most certainly worthy of adding to your many Federation shipyards, or perhaps even to the graveyard scene in a Wolf 359 map? Whatever, the options with this ship are varied, so make good use of it!

the obsolete Akula class warships. The Araxes carried considerably more firepower than destroyers had done to date, thanks to new heavy photon tubes and a new class of phaser. In fact, when they were introduced if one of these ships were to engage a Heavy Cruiser in single combat it would almost certainly defeat it decisively. This ship is balanced to Miranda's personal mod so it might need some ODF editing to fit into your installation.

up there with fan favourites the Galaxy, the Prometheus, and the Akira). And there's no abundance of reasons why, although the most prominent reason is the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E, along with her sister ship USS Sovereign, as seen in Bridge Commander. It was the look of the original NCC-1701-E model in-game that got me into modding Armada II in the first place. The fact that the texture was clearly identical, with the registry stamped on in MSPaint, truly irked me. After all, the Sovereign class Enterprise has such a sweeping impression to its registry, both above and below the saucer, and those kinds of details screamed for me to do something, or look for some way to make the ship work better. It's why Admirals Sovereign was the first mod I downloaded, and one I still use (albeit with retextures) to this day. These models are replacements for the stock Sovereign, re-done (and nicely!) by Aad Moerman, who always does top-rate stuff. The .ODF content is duplicated from there, as are (one can assume) the hardpoints. The models themselves look really nice, but my one issue, as you can see in a screencap, is the same one that brought me here in the first place. Fortunately the registry doesn't look as awful as the stock -E once did.... but it's not quite right, is it. Still, that's hardly something to complain about with such wondrous and truly awesome Sov models to work with here. It might be time to reconsider my use of Admirals' Sovereign.... Download this one today. You can never have enough Sovs. :cool:
Pizza the Hut said in the e-mail and I\'m finding it very difficult to argue with it. It mops the floor entirely with the stock repair ship which although good, this one is just far superior. It also fits in with the idea that the useful TMP era ships remained in service into the TNG era (Excelsior, albeit with refits), Miranda (same principle) and of course the Oberth from which this is based. It is generally very good and for a kitbash very nice but my only gripe, could be yours too, is the third nacelle, or what looks like one. Regardless of this, a very nice piece of work and definitely a worthy replacement. If you don\'t have a good replacement already, this is definitely the one for you.

the TOS one), though with a deflector dish, and the pod at the back raised. Again, this is a nice little ship that fits in quite well. The only two problems I can see with these are as follows: Firstly their poly count (not that its up in the 5000), but 1500(ish) for a ship of this type and era may cause some issues. Additionally, they both read “NX-01 – Enterprise” – something that shouldn’t take two minutes to correct, though is there anyway. Nevertheless, a very nice looking Ent-era ship for our collection!
and a new scout which looks one hell of a lot better than your stock Venture class. One of the unfortunate oversights in this mod was a question of reference to the unofficial 1.2.5 patch available for download and whether or not it's required in order to use this mod. Given that there's a reference to "a total of 12 fighters", it might seem confusing. However, the carrier builds the fighters, and it's suggested that you only build twelve of them maximum. Using the honour system never really works in a war but in this case, you'll just have to make an exception. But the good news is that you do NOT require anything but stock A2 in order to use this ship and its fighters. The new version of the Venture scout is particularly well-done, upgraded to a crew of nine and more in keeping with the scouts of other races in stock. And the fighter looks pretty awesome, too. It looks like a baby Defiant, just waiting to grow up and kick some serious butt. Note that this model includes absolutely everything you need to work-- build buttons, wireframes, admirals' log pics, and nice textures-- for all three of the ships included. This looks like the kind of mod we've all been looking forward to: a true carrier available without relying on the 1.2.5 content. Definitely download worthy. :cool:
wich does look a little strange, i would like to have seen that been a dark blue maybe, or just slightly lighter, it seams to stand out, however it does look pretty cool with this new colour and the overall mod is pretty neat.

finest traditions of the Empire... and soon afterwards desperately trying to run away while cloaked for some badly needed repairs after the Yamato blew through your shields like holograms and left your Dreadnought (Dread-being-in-front-of-the-Yamato more accurately, perhaps?) a crippled wreck. I once described this ship to a friend as a StarBase on thrusters, which I think was a reasonably accurate description. One of these ships is certainly capable of trashing a squadron of heavy cruisers. In her era. (ie, TMP) However, if you are deploying her in the TNG era then after a hundred years of weapons development she is no longer the rampaging monster that she once was. Armed with her original weapons, she\'ll still easily see off Destroyers in some numbers. She might survive against a couple of cruisers simply by blowing one apart with assault phasers and then pounding it out with the second, but that\'s about it. She certainly doesn\'t want to be taking on a 24th century battleship. While she might manage to use her assault phasers to even things out enough to pound things out the odds of her winning aren\'t something most people would give you odds on, and if she did survive it then she\'s likely to need rather more than cosmetic attention by a shipyard afterwards.

program is already underway with more Constitution Class star ships completed and under construction. We are now working on a production of a general purpose medium cruiser. It will be light enough to act as a quick response cruiser, armed well enough to act as a destroyer if needed, and versatile enough to transport supplies and personnel to the front lines, study and research points of interests, and go on extended exploration missions. It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Miranda class. It is our expectation that this versatility will allow this ship to surpass the lifespan of star ships with more limited roles. -End Transmission-
rollbar has been replaced by one that is more elegant and so have so pylons that connect the nacelles to the rest of the ship. The torpedo launchers were scaled down, because I found them to be out of proportion. The textures of the back part have been changed to be more crisp and clear and the shuttle bay in the back is now clearly visible. The greatest change was removing the engineering section. I think this makes the ship more look like its precedessor, the Miranda Class. I decided to put the deflecor dish into the pod on the rollbar, first because I didn't want to get rid of it, second because I had scaled down the torpedo launchers and the pod looked too small, and third because I saw other ships of similar designs. I also added three more strobelights.The wireframe now has a transparent background. There are lightmaps and the borg textures have also been improved. Also corrected a typo in the readme file.[/quote] Definitely worth a download if you have a previous version, or even if you're just discovering this one for the first time. :cool:
there's an equal need for a "workhorse" design, beyond the tried-and-true Miranda class and the more advanced "mustang" ships such as the Akira class. In other words, the New Orleans class fills a gap that, for some reason, the DS9 producers preferred to give to the Miranda class. (Which actually makes sense if you think about it-- concentrated wings of exclusively New Orleans class ships would probably have made these 'tough little ships' prime targets for the Dominion.) At any rate, our very own Cyberash has put together a very well done model of the New Orleans class starship for your use in Armada II. While some details (such as the forward-facing-only torpedo launchers) aren't echoed in other models, others (like the lighting, especially on the lower saucer-- some fine work there) actually give this class a more stately bearing and a finer appearance than one might think it worth. However, if you want the "continuing mission", the price is eternal vigilance. And Ash's New Orleans class model looks more than capable in that regard. The only disappointment to be had here is that the .ODF and .SOD files, along with the textures, are all that's included. It's unfortunate that, in a ship with so many of the fine details included, the mod doesn't follow suit. You'll need to find your own build button, wireframe and admiral's log pic for this one, unfortunately. Of course, the other side of it is that you've probably already got this ship in your game (I know I do-- lots of fun to use in attack walls), but if you don't, you have some digging into other mods to do in order to find those important components. Love this class or hate it..... but download this model of it and enjoy. :cool:
It seems like they needed to include some new and nifty design just to appeal to the fans who weren't going to buy the game anyway-- a new Federation starship!? GOTTA HAVE THIS GAME! Yeah, well, seven years on, the Aegian has aged terribly in stock, and even attempts at retexturing have only reinforced the silliness of this design. Dan1025 gives us what's probably the best Aegian attempt we've seen to date --and as usual, it's sophisticated in how it improves the original while including everything you could possibly want. While the design hasn't improved any, that's hardly Dan's fault. This takes making the best of a bad situation to a new level of quality. Download this one today. :cool:
Still, a nice little ship we have here, if not a little dark (though that may just be the game situation). - SSA
making the existing shape work. Aad has modified and enlarged the saucer section, changed the look of the vessel, and just generally done the best that can be done with the sad little design. Perhaps best of all, the crew complement has increased to 200, since as Aad points out, there's no reason a frigate has a crew complement on par with a destroyer. It's gotta have more crew or it doesn't make sense. This is a nice alternative design for the Aegian class, and hopefully you'll like it WAAAY better than the original. Download it today! :cool:
Starfinder class. The nacelle configuration is different, yes, but not really significantly. It even has similar weaponry. However, it's not my place to detract from a fine looking ship. If anything, this version is closer to the "Pathfiner" design seen on USSMiranda than the Starfinder (if that was the intention) and I think she generally looks a little better than the Starfinder. She sports mesh and textures from SSA's recent Akira mesh upload, which gives it a real kick and is nice to see they're being made use of. In addition, she comes with the new "Quantum Chain Reaction Pulsar", though unfortunately, this comes without a button. All in all, she's a decent download, but perhaps next time, it would be nice to see a slightly different design with seemingly more than just a nacelle change.
than some purpose built models I believe. The sheer amount of pics sent to us really emphasise the beauty of the ship and achieved in a seemingly low poly count, it is bordering on the fantastically excellent side of ship making. As an F.Y.I, this ship, as you may be able to tell, is a sort of "future" envision of the ever dependable Miranda class, a popular design among many as I'm aware. The high's? Well, it uses P81's Sovereign (included in this pack as poly reduced, just to add) to full extent and pulls off a beautifully done design. Whilst I struggle to see the "slightly flawed wireframe", everything is there including concise installation instructions and an admiral's log picture. The low's? You've got to download it before you get it! So, what are you waiting for....get it!!

not borne out by the registry, about which the author unfortunately claims to "have absolutely no flapping idea who made it". Looks like Deemon's to me. And the mod itself doesn't include MVAM capabilities. It appears to be a straight-up .ODF modification, with a new .SOD to match. The actual speculation surrounding which ship would become the Enterprise-F after the decommissioning / destruction of Enterprise-E has been one of my pet peeves in the Trek modding universe. After all, nobody asked after Enterprise-B and its class until the advent of The Next Generation. It seems kind of presumptuous to assume that a certain class of starship recommends itself as the Enterprise. The speculators' best guesses seem to indicate that Enterprise-A's decommissioning led directly to the construction of Enterprise-B, which had a lengthy, if comparatively undistinguished, career before Enterprise-C was launched, then destroyed at Narendra III some time into its first mission. Enterprise-D was purpose-built from the keel up as an Enterprise, as it appears the Enterprise-C was so intended. And Enterprise-E was probably renamed after Enterprise-D's unfortunate loss at the hands of the Duras sisters. Each Enterprise has represented a major leap in the available technology aboard, more powerful than its predecessor. The unfortunate choice in the series Star Trek: Enterprise, to both tack on a predecessor (NX-01) and an eventual descendant (1701-J) bearing the name Enterprise, simply bears out that tendency. But that, so far as we know, is where the tendency comes to an end. Unless Picard's good ship is lost imminently after Nemesis, it seems unlikely that the Prometheus class starship would ever carry a ship named Enterprise. What's more, traditionally Starfleet has honoured the "typical" setup-- two nacelles, an underslung stardrive and a connected saucer. Despite the undisputed improvements in tactical and power systems, the Prometheus remains an unlikely choice for 1701-F even if the Enterprise-E were destroyed the day after the events of Nemesis. Community tradition holds either the Century or the Soulwolf designs to be the likely bearers of the name into the next "next generation". This particular mod gives the Prometheus better phasers, a cloaking device, and three plasma weapons. And the shields absorb all the damage the vessel takes. Seems like overkill on an already powerful vessel, but since this is the Enterprise-F, or supposed to be, that seems to justify it. As a first mod, it seems to be pretty well done. As an Enterprise, though? Your mileage may vary. Worth a look. :cool:
like to play as Borg. If you've already gotten it, upgrade to this new model right now. :cool:
\"electro distributional\" shielding and all! What does the Federation need with all the other ships in the fleet when they\'ve got this!? Well, to be honest, you\'re going to want everything else. Because this one needs a lot of work just to get it functional. Most obvious of the errors (which haven\'t yet corrected in the .zip but which I or one of the other mods here might correct for HMS_Frontier to save a second \"corrected\" upload) is the multiple spellings of \"millennium\" in the various files. Also needing attention ---less as an error and more of a \"wtf?\" moment--- are the textures. I\'m not positive that these textures are entirely fitting to this vessel. You\'re going to want to use the \"noregistry\" textures included-- the ship\'s ventral registry is some other ship\'s, reversed, while the dorsal registry looks like it\'s done in block letters rather than standard Starfleet-style scripting. This isn\'t HMS_Frontier\'s first mod, and his progress, and his potential, as a modder is certainly evident. Like many of his other projects, it looks like it\'ll need a couple rounds of beta-testing (something that should\'ve been done with the MOD prior to its being sent to A2Files anyway) in order to fully flesh out everything that could go wrong. The workmanship put into this mod is good, but not quite worthy of being called \"great\". Even the smallest detail out of place with Armada II --as we\'ve all learned the hard way from time to time-- means the difference between an awesome Star Trek gaming experience and a frustrating evening of black-screen-of-death error hunting. (And I\'m not saying this to be cruel to you, HMS_Frontier. You\'re trying-- that counts for one hell of a lot with me. Don\'t stop modding on my account or anyone else\'s. She could be one truly awesome ship. I want to see it happen as much as you do. And I hope you can make it so.) Worth a download if you\'re willing to help HMS_Frontier turn a good single-ship MOD into a great one. :cool: - the Kid

nice ship overall :)
follows: Phoenix Variant (this being the USS Phoenix from TNG). Bonchune / Farragut / Sutherland Variant (this being the "General Nebula") - such as those seen in DS9 & Message In A Bottle. Melbourne Variant (though not the official name, this is often what it is refurred to as). Anyway, with the addition of an extra Variant created by EO himself, the other two have been seen and are to make a nice addition to the game. This also comes with a handy auto-installer. - SSA *Note: Some screenshots borrowed from Forum Images due to better quality. Hope you don't mind EO ;)

steamrunner, iwo jima, sabre, constuction ship and ventures for scouting ahead). Its equipped with strong phasers and a corbomite reflector witch makes this ship godlike. (sorry if my english is bad)
in my opinion. It\'s majestic design yet brutal yield make\'s it a prominent destroyer, easily capable of destroying bigger ships, providing they work in a similar style to the Galor \"wolf-packs\" of three ships. Of course, this power does not make it a God ship for it has many draw-backs: it\'s built out of the first shipyard (providing you don\'t edit it) as part of some late research, it has a weak hull and moderate shielding. But as mentioned above, it\'s yield of four photon torpedoes and a cruiser phaser array, coupled with the swooping movements of it\'s fast speed\'s and cloaking device will make it a force to be reckoned-with. As mentioned in the readme, the Jagged-Edge class ship was born from the success of the Defiant project, which we all know worked to a great success. In fact, my only gripe with this ship is that it need\'s it\'s Crimson Fleet sisters to make it whole, otherwise it stands out, but let your enemy worry about that as they will have to contend with it, not you! Finally, as a ship to add to your masses of Federation shipyards, I say so. It has somthing that unfortuenately, quite a few designs (including canon ones) lack, and that is originality. However, one must get formal. These changes were made to the file after I recieved it from Capt_Syf: -After being instructed to test it by Syf and not finding the problem, Kel took it and had a look, giving back to me the mod in folders, so you can now extract-and-play with little hassle. This means the gui_global entry in the readme is incorrect, but I shall leave this as it is as the gui_global with the entries is already in there, along with the fyard and some tech tree files. -I added an Admiral\'s Pic while testing it myself, so that has also been included for your use. -Please note, the material\'s included are otherwise all Syf\'s, so please take this into account. If you want to gain permission for this, go to him, this work was done as extra.
in "A Time To Stand" (DS9), the ship consisted of a mostly-Excelsior design (I've referred to it in the past as "an Excelsior with its head up its butt") sporting a pair of Miranda/Constitution style nacelles on the side. Things weren't helped any by a second addition of this ship, in a subsequent scene, with the nacelles in a different position, and a third appearance with the hull re-positioned to be "tucked in" a little better. I've seen this ship, in Armada II, at least, being put to a series of uses that make it clear that nobody knows precisely what the heck this thing is for. Its long-body design, perhaps due to its reminiscence of a Great Lakes freighter, has seen it used as a cargo ship. Still others have used it as an assault transport. Also I've seen it employed as an artillery ship, apparently its overall redesign intended to mount some tricobalt or other long-range launchers. But the most prevalent idea for this ship's employment is as a through-deck carrier of the simple, kitbash variety. Something along the lines of an escort carrier, in modern naval terms. Pizza the Hutt has done some really intensive thinking about the issue (if the readme is any indication) and given us ALL THREE variants of the vessel. That's right-- three different kitbashes in a single package deal. One of these ships, the USS Shelley ---how appropriate that one of many "Frankenstein ships" out there is named for that novel's author-- is designed as a carrier, and Pizza the Hutt supplies an old Hornet fighter from SFC days for its exclusive use. There's also the unfortunately named USS Raging Queen (its name derived from a Saturday Night Live skit that, like so much of SNL, is otherwise long forgotten), which launches Type 4 shuttlecraft (a kitbash of Pizza the Hutt's own design) and serves as an assault transport. The USS Curry that's included, well, it just fits the bill. As with the rest of Pizza the Hutt's work, there's no lightmaps, but there are build buttons, wireframes, and other important details. This is a nice little package, and for the Starfleet completist who needs every canon or semi-canon or should-be-canon vessel out there in the mod community ---such as myself--- this mod is a must-have. Worth a look. :cool:
This is my take on that starship. I've done my best to try make it playable for all through LOD's and also provided 2 distinct texture sets.
seems more like an Excelsior III. This ship (the Excelsior II) is just what I'd expect to see from Starfleet, should they ever decide to work on the Excelsior Class oncemore. I'll admit, the model and textures alike could do with some work, but the idea is certiantly there, and I can only hope for an updated release of this. With a few changes here and there, I'd even go as far as to say I'd use it over my other two Excelsiors' in Zero Hour :p But yeah, this is a wonderful design, makes good use of herself, and is resonable on the poly count. You can see the standard Excelsior design in her, along with a 24th century feel. ;) - Ash
a repair ship\'s survivability, tactical usefulness and overall importance when launching Fleet Movements against enemy positions. This variant is armed with a Type X Phaser (from the Sovereign) and is retrofitted with the Aegian Fleet Defence weapon, the Shield Emitter which aids in the replenishment of shields quicker. Looks like you won\'t have to build the Aegian Class Defence Frigate anymore if you have some of these little miracle workers buzzing around in your fleet. Nice work :) [b] - IKS[/b]

pod. The texturing job on it could have been better. There\'s always room for improvment, right?
look like the perfect strike cruiser but that one is up to you to decide. No mesh changes over the other Monarch subtypes but as the name suggests, it\'s the refit and the third in the line of the ships (note that, the J version is the standard Monarch class with some upgrades). Just be forewarned, this has a large build time. 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 the J 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 and this would, on a pinch, be the most powerful. It can easily defeat the standard Monarch with it\'s extra torpedo and increased hit points but would find a match in the J. That fight I strongly believe would go down to the \"first hit rule\", meaning that whoever gets the first shot will win, but not but just. The disadvantage this has over the J is the lower hit points for systems, which I can see as being the only way this would lose to the sister version. Up to you though, I suggest all three to be in your game.
as if an Akira class starship mated with a Fek\'lhr class starship.... and maaaaan, this baby\'s UGLY. The design actually reminds me a fair bit of the Terran Dominion / Confederacy Behemoth-class battlecruiser from Blizzard\'s StarCraft. But other\'n that, if you want one, now\'s your chance. - the Kid :cool:
article revolving around it. From what I know, this is also known as the Excelsior four-nacelled prototype model. It was suppose to have been a kitbash for the Wolf 359 battle. Also, the class name isn't quite what it may appear. If it had two d's, then I'd be at a loss for words ;) The ship itself is a fairly nice one, good textures are used, and the model appears to be fairly smooth. This one would probably serve as the 'most advanced' of the three ships, being the most powerful. Once again, I may be wrong, that is just my take on it. :) - Ash One of Three: [file="80784"]http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Sunna_Class;80784[/file] Two of Three: [file="80785"]http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Columbia_Class;80785[/file]

thrash your opponent without any problems whatsoever, this one is for you.

anything new, the Hollywood and television producers are either throwing their cameras' attention at completely terrible subjects ('reality' TV, anyone?) or taking the stuff that we knew as kids, and giving us an allegedly improved version now that we're all just that little bit older. It truly sucks. One of the few bright spots has been the JJ Abrams "Star Trek" film released earlier this year. Whether or not you liked the film, you gotta admit that it's nice to see Star Trek actually getting attention again --and new fans, too! We've all expressed our feelings on Ryan Church's design over the past couple months, maybe not in the forums or in a comment, but somewhere. Love it or hate it, unless they make another re-do of the Enterprise in the next movie (and there'll be at least two more), we're going to have to see that version of "the Big E" on screen again. Jetfreak, however, has applied a rather novel thinking to the entire debate between classic vs old-movies vs new-movie 1701. He's created a unique "AR-Prime" hybrid that uses the frame of the alternate reality created in the 2009 film with a new set of textures largely inspired by the original 1966 "prime" Constitution class. As proof of concept.... it works. As a beautiful ship in its own right.... it sure is. You're going to want to download this one right now. But after a couple of rather hostile events recently on this very subject, consider this a warning to anyone who comments: discuss Jet's work ONLY in the comments below. Anything else gets edited or deleted in short order. :cool:

magnificent ship for the role. This design already existed in the Trek modelling community, being derived from the old FASA fleets.... back when "my fleet" referred to blister packs full of pewter and detailed information taken from rule books, rather than textures and meshes working from source code. Fireball_IV does not disappoint here. I've been watching the development of this ship in the forums, and now that I can see the final product, my verdict is simple applause. The glowing lightmaps, the detailed textures (although the shuttlebay looks slightly wonky), the brand new canon-based weapons with textures and sounds---- simply put, if this is the sort of quality work we can look forward to in Fireball_IV's upcoming Dawn of War total conversion, then anything else set in the TOS/TMP era will simply be put to shame. I've had no less than three occasions this month where I've been totally astounded at the work we're seeing in this community-- first Aad Moerman's Defiant, then FahreS' Intrepid, now the Ticonderoga. It's times like these when being able to watch the continued work being done with the admittedly unworthy Armada II engine makes me very, very proud to be an active member in a community many years removed from first release of this product. The fact that we're still getting stuff like this, regularly, is proof enough that we're not going anywhere for a long, long time. I highly recommend you download this one. :cool:
believe it's a minor vessel, the level of detail in this mod will surely persuade you otherwise. Some awesome effort and a whole, complete mod make this one a sure download. Get this one today. :cool:
itself is a fairly nice one, good textures are used, and the model appears to be fairly smooth. This one would probably serve as the 'earlier' of the three ships, being the weakest in strength.

freighters. Freighters can now warp and gather quicker - even with a full load of latinum. The new Nexum Mark Three is handy in single player missions, especially Borg mission 10, set in Fluidic Space. Now you mine in environments that don\'t have any moons, planets or latinum nebuale.
also uses animated bussard collector textures. The vessel includes TOS weaponry in the form of twin phasers and photon torpedoes all with new sounds and textures. Wireframes and a build button is also included.
allow you to still use the older models of Constitution class starship with no problem. :cool:

(this version has pulse phasers, so I\'m saying its a TNG upgrade of the old canon shuttle.[/quote] I myself like it. Good job :)
version is the one that will be featured in Dawn of War, and Fireball_IV has spared no detail-- even new plasma and damage emitters! Download this one right now. It looks good and plays even better. :cool:
slight mesh changes), there has been an edit on the lighting effects on the craft, so it will react to different lighting now rather than not doing so beforehand. 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 the J 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 is the least powerful of the lot. For note, she has two stock Sovereign phasers and her quantum torpedo. She also has a strong hull, lots of crew but makes up for this in the balance department with its build time and resources required.
with it, nor released it, at least, not until now. Therefore, I present you with a new Aegean model for use as that little frigate, that always gets destroyed ;) Quite easy on the poly count too, I\'d suggest a download for all fans. - Ash
Pizza the Hutt has brought it into the game wonderfully. This is a really well done design and it fits perfectly in that TOS fleet we all have kicking around somewhere. Note that this uses FahreS' parts in a kitbash configuration, so you don't have to worry about whether or not it matches FahreS' Constitution class starship. Take a look at the predecessors of one of the future's most long-serving starships. :cool:
are 3 fighters flying in unison. Well, that\'s because this mod as the Sparrow Class\' fighting as a squad. Pretty cool, huh? Whilst obviously one gets picked off rather easily, the three of them together can put in a little bit more of a punch before being toasted, which, they will. There\'s also a good bit of balance here as well. If you take a look at the ship odf then you\'ll see you could build an unlimited amount of them, due to the non-existent officer count. Don\'t fear though. They\'re relatively expensive for what they\'re worth and truly will only be powerful against ships, especially in swarms. With a damage base of 2 (in scale, a Sovereign stock has roughly 90) you\'re only going to be doing damage in a group, whilst being picked off by larger capital\'s. It\'s a nice set too. All content is there and looking clean and refined whilst the textures make the very low poly ships look pretty nice. Don\'t expect them to look fantastic at zoomed-in angle\'s, but they get the job done and do that well. All in all, a pretty nifty little set. My only irk is that a Sparrow Class wasn\'t available to use separately, meaning you have to use the combined 3, but it\'s hardly a big problem. At least this way, you won\'t lose your small fighters in a pitched battle. I\'d say these were best used early on when ships are weak and later on as cannon fodder against defended installations, allowing you to take out defences providing a much easier (and safer) job for your capital\'s to sort out.
their function (see readme). This is a really nice ship, and it fits the Lost Era perfectly. If there's any era we need new Starfleet ships for (and there aren't many, are there?) it's the Lost Era. Beautiful port from Thermal Nuclear Chicken. :cool:
like. Usually it's because the model is poorly done, but in this case, I can't fault that. It's a very well done model of a very poorly considered design. This three-nacelled Excelsior variant is another one of those speculative designs. It is sometimes listed as Trident class and sometimes as Medusa class. It was at first unclear what was the top and what was the bottom of the ship. Pizza the Hutt used Ex Astris Scientia as a reference for this model. Needless to say, the accuracy speaks for itself. But so does the overall appearance of this ship. "Medusa" indeed. Where exactly they put the warp core is open to interpretation, to say the least. That's implying, of course, that thought went into the design. More than likely it was a case of "hang some warp nacelles on it and throw it on screen" kitbashing. Download this one if you can bear the sight of it. Pizza the Hutt made a really pretty model of a really silly vessel. Can't fault him for doing his bit as a modder, to give us all those canon Starfleet vessels. :cool:
a modest recreation of it, but it lacks fine tuning. Good job, but with a little tweaking, this could look excellent! ***ATTENTION***ATTENTION***ATTENTION*** In order for this mod to work tyou must move two files. After extracting the .exe, lok for the two files inside Armada 2/odf/weapons, and place them inside the Phasers folder. Thanks to Steven Hale for the tip :)
This one includes all the fixings you'd expect (build button, wireframe, stock weapons, admirals' log) and a pretty little model to go along with it. Worth a look. :cool:
the Enterprise-era (the Challenger) overall, that isn’t a problem, just a small nitpick. If the nacelles on this little beauty were flipped to be on the under hull, she could almost pass as an Ent-era Miranda variant. The only two problems I can see with these are as follows: Firstly their poly count (not that its up in the 5000), but 1500(ish) for a ship of this type and era may cause some issues. Additionally, they both read “NX-01 – Enterprise” – something that shouldn’t take two minutes to correct, though is there anyway. Nevertheless, a very nice looking Ent-era ship for our collection!
Well, you can have it in Armada II as a replacement to your freighter. I highly reccomend a download. It\'s much better than stock and can fit well in an alomst stock and a highly modified game. As for the screenshot, It\'s a recreation of the first conquest mission I did for the Borg (Minus unity starbase)
Download if you like :) - SSA
at the Ent-J seen in ENT reminds me of such. - Ash
However, it also looks less like the Sovereign class USS Enterprise as a result than the lighter version, which may be the intended effect. Both models are equally based upon the P81 Sov model which is a well known model, but Ash has poly-reduced her by about a thousand poly. Please be advised that there are instructions in the readme about the method of installation used. Each of these ships are intended to be installed as the 'fbattle' replacement; there are no buildbuttons or wireframes as a result. Also, if you try to install one, it will override the other, as they will need a little modding finesse in order to appear together as they do in the screenshots. A very nice contribution to your A2 build. :cool:
with the missing textures included, Jetfreak approached me and offered me some better textures that he had made. So, this is basically the same ship as Version 2.0, but with cleaner and crisper textures made by Jetfreak.

details, please look at that link.
Eagle class from vt1032[/url], this one\'s a beauty. From Ex Astris Scientia, from which this class design originates: \"Most of the Eagle-class ships are currently equipped with a combined photon torpedo and long-range sensor pod. The original operation area was mainly well inside Federation space. During the Dominion War, almost all ships of the fast but moderately armed class were ordered to the Tholian and Talarian borders, where they successfully prevented incursions, largely without the support of other ships. Considering the recently necessary rearmament of Starfleet, it is expected that Akira-class starships will be the preferred design in the future, although Eagle-class starships fulfill all requirements.\" Only downfall for this one is that it has no wireframe. Atlantis also points out that he \"just took the ODF from the stock Sabre class and beefed it up a bit, to about 200% (give or take) for everything.\" So a little work to get it just right in the balance will be required. Unless you wanna make it a godship. But then most of us who play the game have no time for you anyway. Godships. Bah. :r Download this lovely new design today and make Starfleet proud. :cool: - the Kid
hardpoints are named according to their function (see readme). This is a really nice ship, and it fits the Lost Era perfectly. If there's any era we need new Starfleet ships for (and there aren't many, are there?) it's the Lost Era. Beautiful port from Thermal Nuclear Chicken. cool
latest mod from Pepperman proves exactly why. This mod makes the USS Enterprise-E mod from trekmods available to the A2 community. The ship has been equipped with multiple phaser arrays, photon and quantum torpedoes. In addition, she has been armed with a compliment of Transphasic torpedoes to aide in the fight against the Borg. The Transphasic torpedoes has been setup to only be effective against the Borg and their technology remains in TOP SECRET channels. Please note that this mod has not undergone extensive testing so some minor tweaking to the torpedoes may be required (i.e., side of the torpedo and the strength of the Transphasic torpedoes in particular may need to be adjusted). This mod also uses the stock Enterprise-E wireframe and Admiral's pictures so no changes are required there. Still, this one is an absolute must-download. :cool:
Scout,Light Cruiser and Heavy cruiser models are made by me, i used the SFB models as a base for the designs
kitbash from pizza, and I\'m sure we can look foward to many more to come ;) - SSA
and faithful to the original model :)
hardpoints are named according to their function (see readme for more details). Looks like a predecessor to the Akira class, and handles very nicely in-game. Definitely worth a look. :cool:
Premonition class, although no longer capable of timetravel, now has a new special weapon: a Temporal Stasis Field generator that can be used on a starship. Important Note: Make a backup of your existing files, because files in this folder will overwrite stock files!
before (see: http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Arcadia_Class;105721) though with updated hardpoints. The ship should now fire her phasers from the correct points, along with those points on her nacelles struts.[/quote] If you liked the original, you'll really appreciate this upgrade. If you missed downloading the original.... now's your chance. Get it now. :cool:
and that will \"upgrade\" to the Pulsar X Class. Admirals log pics, buildbuttons and simple wireframes included. This upgrade system is a preview of what\'s to come in STA2: Beyond the Horizon.[/quote]I swear this ship looks a lot like the Luna every time I look at it, but it isn\'t quite \"there\". Nevertheless, three advancements (well, actually two, as one is the orignal) of the Pulsar Class. Download, Upgrade & Enjoy ;) - SSA
be built from the advanced shipyard. This defiant will be like the original prototype on DS9, designed as a military heavy destroyer with plenty of durability and power. Due to the new textures, I have eliminated the antimatter mine weapon, because it wasnt working (I probably need to import the A1 version), although it has sovreign quantum torps and a cloaking device. I also added a improved sovreingn odf and the old Enterprise textures from A1. For some reason both of these models look better to me than the A2 versions.[/quote] Sounds good!
there are several improved phaser sprites included in this pack. Now I list another model pack, the Constitution pack, as a requierment for this pack. Due to problems with the upload system that pack is not currently up on the sight. However I will include a link in the comments section for you until the system is fixed. Assuming the download problem will still remain a link for the Excelsior pack will also be in the commentsection untill the system is fixed. I\'ll get both links up as quickly as I can but there may be a small period of time between the staff posting the page and my getting back to put up the links so please be patient.
promises: an exclusive focus on the time period around the original series. These ships were designed by Jason Colbert, at the Starfleet Museum site. They\'re... odd by TOS standards, but they fit. The Avenger class destroyer and Predator class destroyer are here in awesome quality. And since it\'s from dinosaurJR, you know it\'s going to be good-- and complete, too. Admirals\' log pics, build buttons, wireframes, and quality textures on a decent-poly .SOD file for its type. Get these original-series beauties today. :cool:
original-series era designs to be first seen in recent years. The NX influence is clear, as is the similarities in hybrid saucer/stardrive designs to pre-existing descendants (and THAT only makes sense in Star Trek) like the Akira and Norway. Worth a download. :cool:
cost of the ship is very low it would appear that this ship class is designed for suicide attacks on larger ships and stations. Given the power of the self destruct versus how many of these you can build for the cost of a single destroyer I would imagine that this could be quite painful to anybody on the receiving end of a suicide charge. I am not quite sure if this really suits the federation though, this seems more like a Klingon weapon (and even then I would have expected SOME weapons onboard apart from a bit bomb)
Excelsior had minor tweaking to the nacelles.
nacelle field grille that is more in line with the ships of that period. It can be seen on screen shots of DS9 episodes.

the Sovereign design. Some might say too true to the original, but I think it stands apart just fine. Your mileage may vary. New ships from Aad are quality mods every time. This is no exception. :cool:
(unless your the klingons, have stolen the design, and plan a mass-suicide run) :p Still, it is a nice little thing to have. Brings a piece of Trek History to the game. :) - Ash
(and why wouldn't you be? chunky saucers and white-grey hull colours not your thing?). It also comes with a complete collection of detail bits-- new weapons, a buildbutton and wireframe, and an admiral's log pic. Terradyhne really adds to the effect with the available ship names. I'm particularly fond of the USS Vercingetorix. The guy doesn't get enough attention nowadays-- seriously, look 'im up. :D Download this one today. :cool:

the original, the one that started it all. LOD's, damage and even a Captain Kirk voiceover are included. This version has alternate, more detailed textures along with spot lights. * Please note that this version includes all the files necessary to get the Enterprise in game, you do not need to download both the original USS Enterprise and then the alternate pack to get the alternate textures or vice versa. *
your complete surprise, is shaped a lot like a big pointy arrow. However, the ship is very well put together and Thermal Nuclear Chicken has done a great job porting and hardpointing it for A2. Worth a look. :cool:
Dominion attack ship. She's surely a lot more ugly than the standard Starfleet design, but not nearly as ugly as the "bug". She's fairly well armed and won't let you down, but is probably best used either in numbers or in a support role. This is a collaborative effort between apoclaydon and Jetfreak, re-texturing and fixing some areas of the mesh from the original Copernicus, with new emitters, build button, wireframe, and just about everything you could ask for in a new ship. Some of you who already use this ship in-game will be happy to see the update. For those of you who don't, it's certainly an interesting concept, and well worth a look. Download this one today. :cool:

choice of some new nifty Federation vessels, along with a brand spanking new shipyard. All these models (to my knowlege) are from the game (just put together, or edited whichever) - The point is that this guyh as taken the time to go through them all, think up ideas, and then put them into practise. ;) Now, whilst most of them aren't to my personal liking, I urge you to download and try them out. ;)

era. I came across the Conelly class for Starfleet Command, but it had too many poly to port it into ArmadaII and I also found the weapons pod too tiny. So I decided to design my own ship by kitbashing various of P81's TMP era ships. I was very satisfied with the result and all I needed was a name for it. I got plenty of suggestions from the community and finally choose Hyperion class.[/quote] Congratulations to CanadianBorg for coming up with the winning name. Download this one now. :cool:
the 1.0 version then you will appreciate this even more, pretty good ship .:) [b]- IKS[/b]
there was Enterprise (the series), there was the Starfleet Museum, the pre-original-series designs of many fans, but perhaps most memorably, Franz Joseph Schnaubelt's original --and, to many, canon-- Star Fleet Technical Manual, the book that really started it all in starship design. The SFTM led to the creation of the Star Fleet Battles games; they in turn continued to spawn new expressions of fandom back and forth through the timelines after the Motion Picture and the Wrath of Khan came out. All of this took place before the Next Generation, before DS9, before the Internet.... before some of us were even born. One of the best sources on the Internet is Bernd Schneider's incomparable Ex Astris Scientia. Among the hundreds and hundreds of fan-designed starships hosted there is the Ajax class destroyer, which we've previously seen in A2 in a model made by Terradyhne. Now, it's Fireball's turn to make this model for A2, and his effort looks absolutely fantastic. The design fits in between the Daedalus and the Constitution class starships, as a sort of forerunner to the Miranda class design. The mod includes everything you'd expect --all the nitpicks and more-- in stunning detail. There's even new weapons sounds based on (and modified from) recordings from the original series, and new emitters for damage etc., so be sure to follow the readme closely. Note for those with smaller computers: while the poly count is okay for this model, the problem you'll most likely experience with this model will stem from the massive texture sizes. They look truly brilliant if you've got a top-end computer. They'll give you massive lag and horrible gameplay if you build more than a few while playing A2 on just about anything else. Definitely worth a download. :cool:
to the Akula, named Akula refit in honour of the Akula we all knew and loved in the SFC series and KA. Hope everyone enjoys! I also included a new Freedom class odf, there were no bugs in the previous one but I did make a mistake. I had the shield target hardpoints under the hull target hardpoints! It's not a big deal but I suppose if I made specific HP's for shields, might as well use them for shields! Not really optional or required, but if you have the Freedom already, you might aswell enjoy this!
wonders. So, as to why there is a sod of a Federation colony ship without it's team colour part is beyond me, but hey, there you go! This very nicely done upgrade changes an un-used Federation colony ship (same mesh) bar the team colour and utilises some nicely done upgraded textures that really highlight a good few details. Not only this, but upgrades were additionally done to the Borg set as well. Everything else about the Federation colony ship remains the same mind you. Though, the class name makes sense. As accurately pointed out by the developer, Raven sounds more combat-ship then colony. Overall,it's a decent download. Do note, this modification will most likely interfere with online play. So if you still have the stock model and play on-line, this probably won't be for you. Never mind if you don't, because this genuinely is a good addition.
Starfleet's newest designs. What exactly a 'battle frigate' is, I'm not sure. Somewhere between a battlecruiser and a frigate. Which would make it a cruiser, would it not? These naval designations applied to Starfleet never really work, do they. Either way, the Fabrux class frigate looks like a guitar pick with warp engines. And it'll either become one of your favourites in a hurry (it's VERY well armed, perhaps a little too well armed) or you'll dislike the design from the outset and refrain from commenting about it. And that's fine, but it's worth a look. :cool:
bigger guns in to get the job finished. Download if you like.
texture is lightmapped, and there are hardpoints for Strobes, Steam Emitters and Plasma emitters. Install instructions make the fighter buildable from your base. Please remember that you cannot redistribute this for any kind of profit, and that you use this mod at your own risk.[/quote]Now, this ship has been in and around various forums, both at GF and I believe AFC for quite some time. Finally, it has been finished, and (as you can see by the ReadMe) a few people have 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
yours in-game as well. The textures look perfect, the 1.2.5 enabled MVAM works perfectly, and the Borg textures are terrifyingly perfect. Not to mention all the usual add-ons you've come to expect in good mods (build button and wireframe for all parts and fusion weapons, admirals' log pics). Please note that due to a technical issue (also known as 'the Kid being technically inept'), the low-res textures referred to in the readme can be found here: http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Prometheus_Class_lowres_textures;97030 Seriously awesome work on a canon Starfleet vessel-- who could ask for more? Download this one right now! :cool:
makes this one worthy of commending to your immediate technology. Note that the hardpoints are specifically named for their function, at least for the weapons, making this a noteworthy innovation in and of itself. Hope it works for everyone. Also, the ship has some pretty powerful weapons (quantum torps, Galaxy phasers AND a corbomite device) that some may consider overkill. Not like you don't know how to change the weapons loadout if it's too much for you. Indeed, the only point of fault on this model would be the registry on the saucer section, but then, that's easy enough to correct, if you've got the skill and the right programs. Everything you need is included --the .ODFs, the build button, the wireframe, and the Admirals' Log pic. Download it now and you'll be doing the Charleston at the big dance tonight. :cool:

Class retrofit. It shares the same sort of design, though visible changes can be seen. The nacelles for example aren\'t as close to the saucer as they are \'suppose\' to be, and the saucer itself has changed from a circular shape, to more of a eight sided object? Still, whilst not the Sabre as we know it, this is an interesting take on the model, and I\'m sure it\'ll take. - Ash --------------------- Yes, this version does allow you to actually play it :p Whilst I\'m putting up this working version, just thought I\'d put my own views on it. I personally really like the texture and model job. Whilst it\'s not Sabre, you can clearly see what it was and see it still, pretty much, is. It has a sharp edge to it, but the odf will tell you otherwise. It does exactly the same in exactly the same way, just look slightly more kick ass then before. By slightly, I mean a lot. The pictures I don\'t think really do it justice. Content is the standard AM includes, that of a new admiral\'s pic and Borg textures to go with the new ship/textures respectively. As a stand-alone download, I\'d say this was very good, but I get the distinct impression that this is just the first (figuratively, we\'ve already had the Qeh\'Ral, Negh\'Var and Venator) of many stock-model re-do\'s, in which case, I say that I simply can\'t wait for them.
across as... \'cartoonish\' (this being because of the textures) and I don\'t believe it posesses lightmaps. Still, a fairly nice design, and its easily seen that a fair bit of work has gone into this. I\'d say download ;) - SSA
has 4 tt, all in the gamma section. In assault mode, the alpha unit activates 2 forward tubes, the same as on the beta unit. All 3 sections in assault mode have now 8 tubes.

If so, please contact me at: email@example.com The fusion weapon works fine. Make a backup of your existing files, just to be on the safe side! *************************************** Important Note: You need to install the Star Trek Armada II Patch Project 1.2.5 first, otherwise the special weapons won\'t work.

NX-class model with smaller-scale Sovereign nacelles. Obviously these Sov nacelles are not to scale because if they were the ship would have a cartoonishly small saucer section relative to its warp nacelles, as the standard-length Sovvy nacelle is roughly one and a half times the length of the NX with its nacelles (which are tiny by comparison) still attached.... Anyway, it's a "retro" concept of sorts but I can't help but think that Starfleet can do better. ;) Download this one if you want. :cool:
hope everyone enjoys this, and wait just a little longer for AVM v5 now the patch is released!! (it stops it from looking like an NX) [url]http://www.armada2files.com/file.info?ID=7135[/url]
considering the .SOD is borrowed from stock. The stock Incursion has never looked better. Worth a download. :cool:
Imagine there\'s a ship that looks like the NX-01 only with parts from the galaxy class, or you could just look at the screenshot. It\'s a pretty mutlipurpose vessel so it\'s good for any fleet.[/quote] He removerd the regrestry, added a deflector screen, and re-worked the necelle plyons.
Vulcan transport like the ones seen in various TNG, DS9 and other episodes commonly referred to as the T\'Pau type (or occasionally mislabeled as the Apollo class). The ship itself looks good, at least as drab Vulcan ships go. Its only real fault is that, well, it doesn\'t come with a buildbutton or a wireframe. Admirals\' log pic is included, along with about seven textures about 200KB each, and a .SOD file. mishkaco went so far as to put together two .ODF files --one configured as an assault transport, the other a colony ship. Either way you want to use it, this is a welcome addition to the standard non-Starfleet UFP ships. :cool:
filling the hole a bit...
ship itself and the functions it can perform (now including an assault capability) have improved somewhat. Still wish it came as a full mod instead of just a ship with .ODF content, but no readme. :cool:
told) took quite a while to create ;) A nice addition to the TMP-era this is. - SSA
scenes and episodes which show one of these majestic Starfleet cruisers, there's a school of thought in Trek fandom that says that every ship can separate its saucer section. How a Sabre or Steamrunner would be able to pull this off is beyond me, and the Norway would be at a particular disadvantage, well, this just might be the mod for you. As mentioned above, you need to use the "replaceweapon" ability conferred by the 1.2.5 patch, and without it, you'll have a hard time getting this to work. Saucer separation is notoriously impossible to get to work due to the Galaxy class being hardcoded, but the 1.2.5 patch is thankfully capable of working around that little issue. It's not for everyone, of course, but it makes neat mods like this one possible. Worth a look. :cool:
perfect to what you'll see in May of 2009 in theatres. The improvements to this model (the nacelles and stardrive have come a LONG way since 1.0) speak for themselves, and considering that all that there's been to proceed from here has been a still photograph of a fleeting shot in the trailer of the film, this is a really noteworthy effort and one worthy of your download. Take a close look at this one, and keep your hopes up for this new movie. And once again, keep your comments about the download, not about the design of the ship or the movie or anything beyond the way this model looks and behaves in-game, please and thank you. :cool:
but oh well - one or ten more won\'t hurt. Download if you want :-)
realized that they have the wrong size.[/quote] As you can see, this updates the textures. It also now includes an ODF, for those of you that dont have the knowlage or are too lazy. Or something. Anyway, this is a great ship for the futuristic federation fan.
the Romulan Draconarius Class, maybe S31 are involved). This unique ship has potential but the model is a bit choppy and blocky (which really isn\'t the main drawback). The textures are a bit inconsistent and are very wishy-washy. The textures do not complement the model (the main drawback imho), for example I would like to see more darker carbon-like textures to suit the shape and design of the vessel. Also the textures seem to have different specular lighting which detracts from the textures even more. As for the vessel\'s concept. It\'s unique Romulan appearance, which is by design, does seem to fit it\'s bill as a Neutral-Zone patrol cruiser - for instance, if the Romulans would come across this vessel it would throw them off for a while (provided this vessel had a way of masking it\'s Federation signature) It definitely needs more work to be honest [b]- IKS[/b]
less officers, faster to build and cheaper.) This version now has borg textures as well. As suggested, I now used the ZIP format. files included: ODFs, SOD, TGA, BMP and JPEGS.
two of the most elegant Starfleet ships, the Excelsior and the Miranda class (using excellent meshes/textures by P81 of both ships) into something that would be an Excelsior-style successor to the Miranda class.
guess the engineers who designed it were all under the influence of the PSI2000 virus. [/quote] So Pizza the Hutt says in this ship's outline-- and he's right. This is one truly ugly looking, truly silly looking vessel. The Rigel class is, by anyone's calculation, a joke taken too far. Ex Astris Scientia describes it as follows: "A Galaxy-class saucer, attached directly to a Constitution engineering section (no connecting dorsal). Three Galaxy-style warp nacelles; the first two are about where you'd expect, the third is attached directly below the shuttlecraft bay." Like most three-nacelled ships, this one's strictly for the "wtf?" factor. Pizza the Hutt also included some political commentary. Just ignore it and mod over it if you don't like it. Worth a look. Just not a long look or you might go blind. :cool:
what the cooly named USS Blackhole does. Under the guise of a freighter (more precisely, the data miner from a Federation campaign mission) it disables all required systems of a nearby enemy rendering it completely useless. Apart from transporting and unless you're playing a game of 'how quickly can I transport people', I doubt you'll be able to get a lot out of your craft, should this be used against you. The ship has no new model or textures, just sports its revised weapons and hull. It should be noted though, whilst it takes a long time to build and is moderately expensive, making it something of a mini-super-weapon, its hull is incredibly weak. Honestly, a battleship with enough range will destroy it before it has time to be disabled. Recommended use would be to have one in each of your fleet's, allowing you to maximise its effectiveness and not throw it open waiting to be shot down by anything with a decent range. Pushing this away though, it doesn't change the fact that this is a very powerful weapon, in the right hands. You could almost say it has similar effects to that of a black hole (well, not quite). Definitely a download.
make it larger or smaller by editing the file stated in the readme below. Now take the defiant, and fight the dominion! Definitly download worthy for DS9 Fans like myself

of these ships could take out any threat in its time. Many years after these ships had started being built, Starfleet stoped constructing this class along with many other class's as new ships were being designed and constructed. Few Araxes still exist but the ones that do were refited with the latest technology.
incase you want to add something.
side note, the author also followed all the submission instructions to the letter, which is so helpful (and unusual, unfortunately) that I think this deserves special recognition and an elevated rating. -Freyr
based off the same texture (which is a nice one I should add) and adds a very classy admiral's pic. As it says in the readme this simply finishes the ship off. There will be a future upgrade of nacelles as well, so look out for that one.
course is ready for stock gameplay. And is pre-balanced for Stock accomedations. If you are putting this in your own mod some editing of the odfs may be necessary. But it is definitely worth a Download.[/quote]
ship uses the textures (normal and assimilated) of the stock Galaxy Class.
attempt. I'm assuming this is the reason why no credits are offered, and I hope I'm right. In addition to not sending a readme or credits, the build button, the wireframe, and the admiral's log pic are all absent. So some modding experience will be required. As to the model itself.... ignore the registry and accept that the textures look a little.... angular for a Starfleet vessel, and the design itself isn't that bad. The author compared it in the description (which I've copied AS the readme below) to "great ships like the Century and Valiant". This makes a lot of sense, especially considering the Sabre itself filled some other obsolete vessel's role in the fleet, so it too would eventually need an upgrade. The author promises a full 1.0 version in a couple weeks' time. Perhaps someone from the community might want to give captainmacgyver a few tips and pointers about what to do next with this promising work in progress. Worth a look. :cool:
vessels that used the phaser strips that are so common in TNG. Starfleet wanted a small ship that would be able to test a knew style of warpengine and these new phaser strips. Equiping all of this (at the time) experimental technology on a large, expensive battle cruiser was seen as inefficient and careless. If the project were to fail it would be a large waste of resources, so the McMillan was drawn up to serve as a small frigate that would serve as a test bed to these new technologies. Now in the TNG era, the McMillan still serves as a frigate, but a lightly armed one. This ship is fast and has full phaser coverage, but it can't be expected to hang with the cruisers of today. The ship has a crew compliment of 112 and has 10 phaser strips that provide protection all around the ship. This ship has the speed and manueverability of a scout which can allow it to hang in a fire fight longer than most frigates. Included in this mod is all of the usual, odf, build button, wireframe, admirals log, borg texture and damage mesh/textures. :cool:
notable vessels of this class would be the USS Polaris, a prominent member of the United Earth first fleet. Thanks to his inspirational and the epic CG rendering skills of Dave Metlesits from DeviantArt, I was inspired to do a rendition of one of his original vessels. Which was the Pallada Class USS Polaris. It is a destroyer vessel featured in his numerous fan fictions currently hosted on DeviantArt. After securing permission from Dave to create an Armada 2 version of his craft, I immediately proceeded to start work on this rendition. Of course, with the help of Fahres for the original model and Majestic, for the kitbashing. Team effort for the win! Overall, this makes a fine addition to your TOS fleets, makes a nice change from the usual destroyers of the era. =p[/quote] A new mod from the master of graphics! And. indeed, an awesome addition to any TOS era fleet. If you\'re a TOS fan, then get this ASAP. Why should you wait? It\'s Jetfreak quality!
worthy designs that I've seen lately. But there's method to Pizza the Hutt's madness: he's borrowing the overall starship design forms from the recently-depicted USS Kelvin, as it will be seen (and apparently destroyed) in the upcoming Star Trek film. This is a possible successor to that design, and it's so intended. As always with Pizza the Hutt's work, the quality of the overall design (this one seems to use P81 textures) is assured, and all the things you'd want to have --build buttons, wireframes and Admirals Log pics-- are included. Best of all, it's done in the spirit of the upcoming Trek film, and like it or hate it, all our hopes for the franchise to continue are pinned to the success of that film. Worth a look. :cool:

one's a misfire: the textures --especially the registry-- just look sloppy. It's not the kind of quality work we're accustomed to, although the design itself is a good one. Note you will require the TOS Weapons Pack by FahreS in order to get this model fully functional. :cool:
intresting idea. :)
everything you'll need to have it work in-game, and modifed the weapons load to better suit the role of the vessel as an advanced starship in the Federation ranks. Worth a look. Some good .ODF work here. :cool:
http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Constitution_Class;107871 http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Miranda_Class;107873 for the originals). ################################################## Constitution: The Constitution is an old design, having served the Federation well from as early as 2245. Those vessels still in service are commonly used for convoy or escort duty, as due to their age, they aren\'t known to fare all that well in fleet combat, nor against mainline vessels of other races. Miranda: Having seen most of their prime action between 2260 and 2345, the Miranda has since been demoted to patrol supply lines throughout the Federation boarders. Whilst these vessels are able to survive a fire fight with pirates, they are in no technological order to join combat fleets.
However, from memory and a quick look in the ships archive I don't think we actually have a TOS construction ship at all. This therefore is actually quite significant, as it allows you to finish off a TOS fleet. Of course, we can't actually produce a contemporary fleet for the TOS federation to face off against, but that's hardly this ships fault. The ship looks similar to a Miranda with the nacelles mounted sideways instead of vertically and fits in with TOS designs very nicely, managing to tread the fine line between being nicely detailed and not looking to advanced for it's time. All in all, this is an excellent ship well worth downloading if you have a TOS side. - Freyr From the author:- Pelham Class Construction Ship I've often wondered about construction ships for the TOS era, and what they may look like in the Armada II world. Out of all the designs for cannon ships out there, I decided on a retro Oberth type hull, with the nacelles connected directly to the primary hull, engineering conducted in a secondary hull and a large enough saucer-type section to hold not only the impulse drive but hangars large enough to hold not only shuttlecraft but workbees and materials therein to construct stations, yards and the like. Unfortunately the working copy of Armada that I had on this laptop is gone. I thought I had a boot sector virus which caused my DVD drive to pop open and not operate, so I did a back up and a OS restore, and I cannot install another copy nor play one because I am now without a DVD drive and dont have a spare external drive. So no screenies :-( . All I have is a Storm Viewer shot. I was watching 'The Taking of Pelham One Two Three', and the name and numbers rolled around in my head, which is where I got the name and the registry from (NCC-123). For all you serious Trek enthusiasts out there, the registry may belong to another vessel, just keep in mind this is not a canon vessel, nor a canon world, just made for fun! Although there is mention of Type 1 Shuttles onboard, this model does not include any, just noteworthy information to suggest the size of the vessel and its mission.
that things look better. This looks like a big improvement over the original textures. If you've already got the Crusader class, this one's an easy overwrite of the old texture and you're on your way. :cool:
to all viewers, and is considered a powerhouse throughout the Federation.
accompanying a task force of Constitutions and Suryas against Klingon installations. The conversion was a team effort by mikemckeon007 and Tain_Enabran, based on a mesh from SFC2 by Atrahasis. Tain_Enabran has really put together a wonderful mod here, complete with old-school weapons and everything you'll need to add this beauty to your A2 collection. It's a different design by the standards of the era, but it's one that fits the timeline very, very well. Worth a look. :cool:
Borg textures. [- Pizza the Hutt][/quote] Well, actually it was 2005. :P Never mind, I appreciate it when authors still take care of their mods after so many years, no matter how small they are. Here is the description of the old version: [quote]This is the Soyuz Class made for Armada II by Pizza the Hutt. It is seen in the TNG episode \"Cause and Effects\", when the Enterprise is stuck in a time loop, after the U.S.S. Bozeman 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.[/quote] [b]- TParis[/b]
domination, add a few of these to your fleet ;) .
the first things I modded into my game was to give the assault type of ship a worthy class of vessel to call its own-- the Akira class. No sense in them travelling in separate troop transports. Especially when that transport barely seems capable of bearing the Marines' spare phasers into combat, let alone an actual complement of troops. Either way, there are numerous perfectly good uses for the warp sled. And these new hardpoints from adm_tyler should make it easier to take Interstellar Machine's beautiful re-texture of this otherwise unremarkable vessel and go into combat and glory one way or another. (Even as a cargo ship. Or a tug. Or maybe a repair vessel.) Note that you WILL require this original file in order to get these hardpoints working. http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Iwo_Jima_Refit;12430 :cool:
based on the Prometheus, Intrepid, and Akira class star ships. It takes longer to build than the Sovereign-class but it\'s also stronger and has one more torpedo than the Sovereign. Hardpoints for weapons and special weapons are named according to their function (see readme for details)
secondary hull to speak of. This single-nacelled design isn't a common one, and Gene Roddenberry and the original series' production crew definitely preferred even-numbered nacelle groups, but the Larson class design came along a while thereafter. This kitbash by Pizza the Hutt is made from FahreS' TOS era ships. Note that you will require FahreS' TOS weapons pack in order to get this working. Worth a look. :cool:
Defiant built for them if they'd been able to get their hands on this beauty! Omega_Mod_God points out that the Terran symbols were a little overdone, but I disagree. If anything, this is an understated re-texture. And it won't overwrite any other Achilles you're using. Note that there is no buildbutton, wireframe or admirals' log pic included. And next time, Omega, if you could please include some screenshots? Nice work. :cool:
special weapon: a Temporal Stasis Field generator that can be used on a starship. Important Note: Make a backup of your existing files, because files in this folder will overwrite stock files!
mining freighter! Not a bad looking kitbash, although the textures on the 'tub' could probably use some more attention. Either way, it's great news to see a new submission from Pizza the Hutt. :cool:
look like and here you have it. The regular ship is armed with a mega phaser and some light phasers, the refit adds a photon torpedo bay and 2 more nacelles make it very deadly on the offensive side of things.[/quote] Couldn't have said it better myself. Nice work from Fireball here. Worth a download. :cool:
good looking ones. - SSA
of photon torpedoes as well as other secondary equipment. The Yonkman is a compact design relative to other ships of the era.

chance to test it) [quote]Whats New? 1. Retexture 2. Smaller than original Achilles 3. Enhancements like shields taking all the damage until there gone and regenerative hull. Description: An extremely advanced experimental ship. With quad phasors, 4 quantum torpedo launchers, regenerative hull, and very fast repair rate. The regenerative material used on the hull is strong but economical, making the total cost much less.[/quote]
that rips down the targets shields as long as power lasts. While not on par with TNG era ships the QCB give her a resonable chance of killing a TNG BB in a one on one. Slow to turn however which can make her vulnerable to lighter faster ships. I made it you rate it.:D
effect of giving the Aerie class to a colony ship). She also comes with enhanced textures, featuring some very nice windows which light it up, but don\'t detract from its role of moving cargo from A to B. These changes have also been made for Borg textures so in actual fact, you could just do the textures as an upgrade, if you wanted to. Anyhow, for those of you who wish to upgrade the stock game but can\'t find any decent cargo models, or simply just want to make this good one look a bit better, this is ideal for you. Moving cargo about has never looked so nice.
ship armed with 2 cruiser phasers, and two cruiser torps, totalling about double the damage than the stock Sovereign class can inflict, while having shields a little bit stronger. And it's got a Chain Reaction Pulsar. In my opinion, this could possibly be a little excessive for a cruiser in this price range. Still, that's easy to adjust to your preference. This file only contains the model, ODF's and textures, it's lacking a wireframe, build button and admirals log picture. - Freyr
the Prometheus, Intrepid, and Akira designs. It is slightly stronger than the Sovereign class, takes longer to build, costs more resources, and has an additional torpedo. The weapons hardpoints are named according to their function (see readme)
appear to be the Halley\'s Comet. The weapon is set to be used with the Brandy Class starship.When the ship is in hologram mode,it will look and act as a Comet.[/quote] VERY creative! I tried it, and it works! Definetly worth a download if you are looking for something different these days :)
MS3d. The new model ( this means that this cannot be used in Multiplayer games ), has several missing sections on the original model, like the Aft Observation Lounge under the Main Shuttlebay and I also fixed the nacelles, now they will more canon. I hope you like this revamp, I tried to make this ship as cool as it should have been.[/quote]- SSA
it look any different. I think what really makes this good is the fact that it's the old Akula design but better...not that the Akula was bad, it's just this is very good. Fans of the old design won't see anything different, so don't worry about that, this will simply just make it a little prettier to look at. Remember also, it has all the standard stuff, including a nice admiral's pic (I personally think stations or ship submits without these is a little bit upsetting). Download now people!

Bouns models include and alternet blank in First Contact colors and a First Contact USS Enterprise. Textures are High res but the whole setup has full LODS for both Meshes and Textures. Enjoy!

It works in-game, and looks cool. After installation the ship is built at the Starbase. Note the requirement please. DOWNLOAD! Sod and Texture by Captain fingers Everything else by Ted H *Update*: The errors reported should be fixed, I replaced the old file with a new one.
their supports aren't quite right, the textures are combined from three separate sources (and none of them have quite the right shading), and the parts of this ship we have yet to see in any meaningful way (notably the shuttlebay) are almost detail-free. But the as-yet-unknown modder Sin87 does a fairly good job of trying to capture the spirit of the new design. One of the pitfalls of making this ship, at the present time, is the obvious lack of any 3D models or even high-res screencaps from which to proceed. That doesn't seem to stop several of our modders who are working on the same set of screencaps and pictures we've seen to date, and their enthusiasm for rendering every last canon design --including this one-- is admirable. Hopefully it's only a matter of time before a newer version of this, with corrections made thanks to the constructive criticism of this community and comments in the section below, is made available here for Armada. Definitely worth a download. :cool:

Empire/mirror universe ship because the Federation looks weak!! This will replace your Incursion which is a dumb but now it is a battle ship, not a destroy ship 17 ships not enough for Terran Empire, but count!! Long lived the Empire!!
textures? Given that they've all been replaced by mods like the Upgrade Project's Vanilla Ultimate Armada II, I'd have to venture a guess and say, no. It's honestly not that hard to ask for permission or to give credit where it's due, and that moreso than any other aspect of this mod (which is a stock Intrepid which the .ODFs make a slightly stronger hero-ship equivalent) is a shame. Most of the people I know in this community are surprisingly cool, and I count a number of them as my friends. Asking them for permission --especially since most of these new mods from Jabsticles are really just .ODF mods after all-- shouldn't be that much of a challenging. Jabsticles tells us to "expect big stuff!" in the future. That's something to look forward to, and hopefully this beginning modder can learn from the community --in the forums, for example!-- so that we see more new content down the road. :cool:
these low-res textures are definitely for you. Download these even if you like your textures super-mega-high-res. :cool:
from the beginning wanted to bring her to Armada 2. Now that I have a few models under my belt I felt it was time. Knowing full well that the era was all wrong for her, I decided to build her as a TMP era assault cruiser. I took away her tractors and gave her torps but, everything else is still the same as the original assault ship. ================================================================================================================= Background Info: Built at the Utopia Shipyards from 2283 to 2338, The Strider Class was designed with a multitude of roles in mind. Primarily used for fleet support and small resupply missions, it was not intended for deep space missions without an accompanying cruiser. In times of conflict, the Strider was also used to ferry Marines to planets needing their services. The Marines were also used to board and subdue (if possible) or destroy (if necessary) enemy vessels.
Seraphim Classes also use the class as shuttlecrafts. The Arrow Class is equipped with phaser cannons and dual micro-quantum torpedo launchers. This is a fixed version of the ship, it should be absolutely bugfree now. Weapon ODF error and AIP errors are fixed.
Terran Empire/mirror universe ship because the Federation looks weak!! Long lived the Empire!!
engineering hull of the Constitution class with a connector at the base of the \"neck\" to haul up to three cargo containers of various types and sizes. This model comes with one Starfleet standard container.
TNG: The Wounded. - The second version is the weapons-pod Variant seen as the USS Sutherland (and sisters) throughout TNG and DS9. - The third version is the dual-nacelled Variant seen as a model of the apparent USS Melbourne. - The final version, is, quite simply, one without a pod. ################################################## ------------------------- Description ------------------------- Often referred to as the younger sister of the Vaunted Galaxy Class, these compact vessels serve more of a supporting role compared with their sister ship. Outfitted with a specialist interchangeable pod easily allow these ships to stand head to head with rivals during combat. ##################################################
saying that - the same effect could have been achieved by a simple ODF change which is why I think a retexture would have suited this mod alot especially since the SODs are hex edited to have differently named texture files. Another suggestion to give them the real effect of a fighter is they should have their own physics file that has the maxRoll, turnRadius, pitchRotationSpeed,etc...modified to behave as a fighter does. Also I think they are a bit big to be considered fighters so a change to the ScaleSOD. Maybe this could be done for a 1.1 release? Anyways as I said in the opening, it\'s not a bad mod for someone new...keep up the work :thumbsup: [b]- IKS[/b]
quality of the model is very good and the concept of this type of vessel is commendable. The textures are better this time , the ship now has uniform textures all over the hull - well just about It does actually look like a feasible replacement to the Nebula (and the Nebula's role as a cheaper Galaxy variant) although it probably wouldn't be as cost effective as the Nebula in relation to the Galaxy as it does have most of the Galaxy's ship features and shape. [i]Tips/Hints[/i]: Because the mod doesn't contain any odf for the ship itself, I would suggest duplicating the Galaxy's ODF and renaming it neutron.odf. After doing that, I would suggest tweaking down the ship values to be a bit more balanced.. Good ship, better than the last version ;) [b]- IKS[/b]

the multiple border confrontations throughout 2347 and 2355.

specifications. Includes build button, wireframes, and Admirals Log picture. It does use stock textures and borg textures though, from the Galaxy class.
team colour stripes have obviously been removed from the Sod and the hardpoints have been enhanced along with the textures and ODF. To me it is an improvement as it matches the colour and style of the Sabre Class rather than the stock textures which aren't really. I guess everything is selective and relative to what you see as improvement but even though this texture job has the correct colouring and style, it is for me missing something......windows! and obvious markings of separate hull platings, and maybe the red paint stripe with the gold starfleet badge running along the broadside of the hull. Other than a few nit picks I'd say it's definitely worth checking out, but maybe the full 1.0 version will have the windows fitted. :) - [b]IKS[/b]
that claims to be from the 27th century. Note that there are comprehensive install files, but there's a lot of work that needs to be done to this mod before it's what we're used to seeing. Here's hoping that this isn't the last we've seen from mash1971. :cool:
Insurrection, but it is actualy based on a ship seen in First Contact attacking the borg cube near the start of the movie. This is a fast and manouverable search and scout vessel, and comes with its own installer to make it easyer for you to install.
class itself is used mostly as a Multi-Purpose Vehicle for Starbases and Planetary Installations, but certain starships, like the Excalibur or Seraphim Classes also use the class as shuttlecrafts. The Arrow Class is equipped with phaser cannons and dual micro-quantum torpedo launchers.
challenger class was created by starfleet as a prototype heavy fighter. but because of the lack of shielding and the fact that the war with the dominion was over starfleet scraped the idea. now due to a leak in security the plans have been released. [/quote]
Galaxy's ODF and make the sufficient changes, so in that respect this mod is unfinished as it needs you to modify it to play it. The model quality is good and the concept is very cool, it even looks like it was a ship from the series itself but the textures are incomplete - the ventral side of the hull has two different shaded hull textures and the engineering section is not textured correctly. To be fair this ship has potential but the author released this way too soon, screenshots weren't even added (I did that myself while testing the ship). I would give it 8 for concept, 9 for potential but only 5 for implementation/execution.. hopefully the author will release a complete version of this vessel :| [b] - IKS[/b]

screenshots that this vessel replaces the Saucer Seperation too. Though strange, it is creative ;) - The one part reminds me of Micro Machines of Trek with the Saucer & Neck section ripped off the galaxy Class. - SSA

Ambassador Class. Her purpose was intended to replace the ageing Miranda class, Built to replace the aging Miranda Class. The Arcadia saw most of her action during 2343 and 2350, and has still proven her worth in other roles. Slowly being replaced by the New Orleans and Akira, these vessels continue to offer their multi-role support to custom Federation fleets.[/quote] Definitely worth a download. :cool:
version, and nicely. Download this one, along with one of the Incursion .ODFs from elsewhere on the site, and get this model working for you in-game today. :cool:
of the way, I can say that a ship with 5 necelles is a little on overkill. Four is bad enough. The ship is a modified BC conversion. The tooltip is a little long: Quote: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Prometheus-X Class - Prototype Long Range Advanced Tactical vessel (Prometheus Variant). In 2381 Star Fleet found a derilict Borg Diamond on the edge of Federation space. They towed the vessel back to starbase 926 for full disassembly, and study. While examining the outer hull they discovered that the entire atomic structure of the Vessel had been compromised they downloaded the entire database hoping to find what happened. They discovered the borg had discovered, not encountered a race called the Zarlad. The Zarlad had biogenic technology that was capable of completely Ionizing a Species 8472 Battleship with one shot. The last entry was that they were atemting to assimilate one of there ships... with this discovery Starfleet rushed as many prototype vessels into production as they had. Eight months later the Prometheus-X Plans were brought to the drawing table, four months later they discovered a borg Tactical Fusion cube with the same damage. long range scans have detected less and less borg ships in the Delta Quadrant... The most advanced technology available has been fitted to the prometheus-X, including Ablative Armor, burst fire quantuam torpedo tubes (multi Target) Multi target XX phasers, an implanted Borg Regeneration System, Slipstream Drive, three Rapid Fire Torpedo Turrets below the saucer (like on the soveriegn Class), Corbomite Reflector, and an Iconian Disruptor capable of generating a Type 18 Supernova -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- That was the tooltip. On the positive, the ship comes with a plethora of new weapons, and includes buttons and wireframes. It may debalance the game a little, but hey, when you've got five necelles, do you really diserve to be second to anyone? I think not.[/quote] Well, the tooltip is still that long, and this time, the engineers at Starbase 12 put a type 18 supernova weapon on purpose. The biggest improvement is in the models. It now is seperable, and each section is a formidable opponent. Now it really is second to none.
.SOD is as well. I understand that Jabsticles must be pretty keen on getting involved in the modding community-- both of the mods today are only based on stock for now, but with the level of enthusiasm seen here, hopefully better is yet to come. :cool:

mohawk classes, so credit to Terradyhne and Interstellar Machine, the original creators of these textures. The ship only uses the root hardpoint, so the physics of the ship may be slighty crooked. I have only included the standard tech file, so if you want the ship in free tech you need to make your own modifications.
TOS, where they did feature this ship. They even made it in cinemas with their parody, but this ship was only seen in the TV series. Something very different here from FahreS. Nice to see those completely random submissions still make it in. :cool:
[b] TNG Kelvin class [/b] Mid 2012 I was asked to model a TNG-Variant of the Kelvin class, based on the USS Kelvin as shown in the 2009 Star Trek Movie. Being fond of the idea, I did it... and never released it to A2Files. But now here it is to your amusement. :) [b] For those who are still struggling with the download system, here\'s a link: [/b] http://dl.dropbox.com/u/65791889/pTNGkelvin.zip
an essential part of Starfleet. It originally appeared for the first time in the Star Fleet Technical Manual, published in the 1970s, as a fan design. It, along with the Saladin, Hermes, and Ptolemy designs, became part of canon (sort of) when they were used as screen images in both the first two motion pictures. The Federation class (although differently named-- I think it was the Star League class) was also featured in a novel based in the original series era. Naturally, it only seems right that the upgraded Constitution as seen in the Motion Picture give rise to a more TMP-themed version of the Federation class dreadnought, although other non-canon ships (notably the Ulysses class, Akula class, Akyazi class and Ark Royal class) give this design some competition in the "best non-canon TMP ship". Anyway. That's the story behind the ship. The model of the ship is quite nice, although you should be advised that the texture set name used (fca_##) is already in use among models widely used in A2 to represent the Constitution class and its kitbash descendents. These textures ARE NOT COMPATIBLE, and thus this set will cause your existing Connies and the like to look a little distorted. This is only true of older TMP-era Constitution class models, and their like. But since I keep everything and look for these sorts of things, as a public service, I thought I would mention the potential for conflict here. Furthermore, the model itself, while perfectly accurate, looks a little strange from a distance. There's no lightmaps, and the nacelles and external saucer look much brighter than the stardrive. This looks like one of those simple errors easily correctable by a 2.0 release, but this is one model I'd love to see all shiny and lightmapped properly. Worth a look. :cool:
not finished yet so expect another version soon. Credits: All Odfs done by simie Model, wireframe, textures part of the readme done by pizza the hut[/quote]
names aside, the ship itself uses stock Federation weapons, and it's not exactly clear how a stock assault ship would take over a donut. The silliness surrounding donuts is fairly well known but the mod you're seeing here, aside from a single new .SOD, offers little else to commend itself to the casual gamer's attention. Simply putting a "donut" theme on a poor effort doesn't explain away this design's deficiencies. Perhaps worst of all, the mod includes absolutely no help in the traditional form, what we call a "readme". Including a readme is intended for the benefit of the newcoming modder and the experienced gamer alike. It simplifies the addition of the ship to a game by making it a process of following the steps. Even just for the cut-and-paste factors it comes in handy. It's very disappointing to see mods being submitted without so much as a faint attempt at offering more detailed assistance with the mod's installation, especially when the instructions ("just unzip and copy") could cause other mods in the game to stop working. The A2 community expects better at this point in the continued development of mods for this game. :cool:
The Taurus class is a late replacement of the Miranda class, used to fill its sizable shoes in post war operations. This is a kitbash of Aad\'s Miranda and Excelcior 2(or Centaur) models done by request. Everything should be ready to go for stock a2, button, wireframe, log pic, everything.

They discovered the borg had discovered, not encountered a race called the Zarlad. The Zarlad had biogenic technology that was capable of completely Ionizing a Species 8472 Battleship with one shot. The last entry was that they were atemting to assimilate one of there ships... with this discovery Starfleet rushed as many prototype vessels into production as they had. Eight months later the Prometheus-X Plans were brought to the drawing table, four months later they discovered a borg Tactical Fusion cube with the same damage. long range scans have detected less and less borg ships in the Delta Quadrant... The most advanced technology available has been fitted to the prometheus-X, including Ablative Armor, burst fire quantuam torpedo tubes (multi Target) Multi target XX phasers, an implanted Borg Regeneration System, Slipstream Drive, three Rapid Fire Torpedo Turrets below the saucer (like on the soveriegn Class), Corbomite Reflector, and an Iconian Disruptor capable of generating a Type 18 Supernova[/quote] That was the tooltip. On the positive, the ship comes with a plethora of new weapons, and includes buttons and wireframes. It may debalance the game a little, but hey, when you've got five necelles, do you really diserve to be second to anyone? I think not. Also, the author messed with the hue on one of the shots, so the necelle colors are messed up. They are standard red and blue.

class, or you could just look at the screenshot. :D It's a pretty mutlipurpose vessel so it's good for any fleet.
know how should to refer to a better read-me. The ship itself is a little "old." I heard that the origonal author, Terradyhne, is making a newer version of the ship, but this is the best until then. Full team colors included.
This is a Federation escort I designed to practice texturing. It is armed with phasers, torpedoes, and pulse phasers. All hardpoints, including hardpoints for system targeting, are named for their intended purpose (see the readme for more).
close to the breif shot on the Enterprise episode, the textures are a bit of a put off (for me anyhow, don't know about the rest of you). Anyhow, included is the ship and textures, odf's and an admiral's log pic but does lack a buildbutton or wireframe. Perhaps the best course of action with this ship is to make it a map unit, it has that uniqueness to make it that. Otherwise, it's pretty free choice where you add it with the lack of any other install instructions (as a warning to those who rely on them). Recommend you put it as an advanced battleship, buildable in the second shipyard after all level 2 upgrades are researched. Still, the shape is all there, so, you should be able to get quite a bit of fun out of this.
