Armada II Upgrade Project
Almost a year ago, in fact as one of my first uploads, I had the honour of putting up a non-mod. Well, it's a mod and it isn't...technically, it's an upgrade project, but a fantastic one. That's
what it is in short, but in long... A project undertaken to create a better looking Armada 2, simple, you say? Perhaps, however, I haven't gone over pretty much every texture file in-game to try and make it look nicer and I'm willing to bet you haven't either. On-top of the previous 1.2.1 version, you can expect a few more ship/station textures replaced and weapons...and the background...and it still works online! Yup, the point of this modification is to be able to play a greatly enhanced, graphics-wise, version of Armada 2 to play on-line. The advantage more-so than that? Well, as it is only textures, your opponent doesn't need this (though it is recommended as it looks rather nice). It also comes in a handy .exe so you can just install it by a few clicks of your mouse. In fact, the only bad thing I can see is of the rather large download size, which is 5x larger than the previous version, of course it is all worth it, so if you're a 56ker, I'd stick with it. To point out, the quality of the 1.2.1 upgrade a year ago was really quite something, so it's going to be pretty obvious that the upgrades in this pack are going to make it even better than the previous one. So, do you want to blow up the enemy with some new phasers and quantum torpedoes, or stare at the new backgrounds? Perhaps you'd like to see the newly lit planets or observe your Defiant's blasting the enemy starbase with a flurry of pulse phasers. The choice, is, of course, yours... ... ...of course I thoroughly recommended it! Download this now, or forever be missing out!
