If you dont mind me asking, what was the very first A2 mod that you installed? - Mine was Porty's Ambassador Class.:) She was the very first ship that I succesfully installed and I was so happy to see it ingame, that kickstarted my modding carrer as well.
I think it was probably Admiral's Sovereign, although it was over 18 months ago so I can't be sure lol
Well for Medafusion it was a long long time ago. However Medafusion thinks it may have been Concept Future either that or maybe a Prometheus who knows.
my first mod was the dominion ultimate version 1 which came out way back when. that is the mod that started it all for me from there i have been going nuts modding everything i can
My first mod was BI2, then short time later i uninstalled it. To many bugs and it was unbalanced. It will always have a special place, since it gave me hope for better a2.
Mine was the millenium project, and I still play it. My first manual install was the scimitar:naughty:
It was this one
I can still recall how surprised I was at how much better this Defiant looked than the stock one.
Ghost's compalation mod was my first install. but Id already been messing withe the odf coding of the stock game for about 8 months at that point=p
BI:2 and unlike Dontai I didn't notice any bugs at the time, lol
It got me interested so I looked up tutorials, found the BBOM, 3 and a half years later, here I am.
Dontai has this belief that 'good' mods are 100% bug free, even though the stock game isn't 100% bug free. As for balance, depends how you look at it. If your idea of balance is everything has to be exactly the same, then, I guess it is unbalanced. If you idea of balance is everything is different, but has its own strengths and weaknesses, then, it isn't unbalanced. The first mod I installed for A1 was a small mod that added tractor beams to all ships and a buildable galaxy class and such. I was inspired, and I made my first ODF ships soon after. For Armada 2, the first big mod I installed was Birth of the Federation. I enjoyed it but, the scaling of objects and the choice of vessels wasn't exactly what I wanted. But, thats why we make our own mods :)
