Slightly cooler than a n00b
27th October 2002
Hey, y'all. I'm wondering if anyone could help me. I've got a lot of ideas for some mods, but just don't have the time to make them all. These mods are basically inspired by anime, video games, etc. Here's a list:
============Anime/Other Game Starships============
-Tenchi Muyo!- Ryo-Ohki Juraian Ships GP ships GP HQ Soja Yukinojo Yagami Tsunami Dr. Clay's Ship
-Gundam Series- Wing Gundam/Wing Gundam Zero (Bird Mode) White Base Barge Taurus (flight mode) MS Carrier (GW) Tallgeese (any of the three) Various Federation/Zeonic Battleships Gau Transport Scorpio MD (Mobile Armor mode) Epyon (Mobile Armor) Aries MS (Flight mode) Neue Ziel The Apsaras (II & III) Space colonies (GW or MS Gundam) Space transports shown in the various series
-Excel Saga- The Ship thingie that Il Palazzo's base becomes (use his voice stuff, i.e. "The world is becoming rotten!") The Puchu Mothership (ep. 2) The Various Puchu ships (ep. 20-ish) (The ones farcing Gundam)
-Outlaw Star- The Outlaw Star (ship)
-Ranma 1/2- Kirin's barge thingie (make sure to have it shout "Pickles!" when you select it)
-FF VIII- Balamb Garden (toughie) Ragnarok Galbadia Garden Those Mech things the Galbadian soldiers fly in (?)
-Starcraft- Archons (Light/Dark) All the ships/mobile bases -Make sure to get sound effects from game
-Dragonball Z- Saiyan Pod Trunks' Time Machine Frieza's ships
-Chrono Trigger- Epoch/Silverado Black Omen Blackbird (or whatever that big ship from 1200 BC is called) Lavos (outer shell)
-Battleship Yamato- Yamato Any other ships from this anime
-Starfox- Arwings Great Fox All enemy ships All allied ships (i.e. Bill, Kat, Cornerian Defense Force ships, etc)
These are all overall ideas, and will require much work, but if anyone feels up to the challenge, drop me a line and I'll find some images to work off of. I'll probably come up with another list of ideas (probably not ST ideas, as I prefer making those myself) sometime in the future, and I'll make sure to post them here.

First off, Macross = Robotech...sorta
I requested Robotech and Star Fox ships at STGN a while ago, to no avail... :(
A long while ago, I'd say early summer, there used to be a forum on STGN entitled "Tenchi Armada." IIRC, the leader of the "mod" had completed quite a few ships, including Jurian and Ryo-Ohki. Haven't heard anything from him in a long tim though, and the forum has since been deleted.
But think for a moment how sweet a Robotech mod would be...harvesting Protoculture, Building millions (Hey, I can dream can't I?) of Zentraedi ships and frying ARMDs. Twould be the best think since sliced bread...

OK, that Macross/Robotech thing was a big "duh" on my part (I do know that they are pretty much the same thing, but forgot I had already added Macross to the list). Anywho, anyone who has taken any ideas from this, please note that I'll be starting up a full-scale mod based on Mobile Suit Gundam, from the beginning of Amuro's piloting of the RX-78 Gundam, probably through Char's Counterattack (though it will be quite a bit of time until I'm done). If anyone out there is interested in helping out, please LET ME KNOW. The more people helping, the sooner it can get done.
The roles I'll be needing on people are as follows. Note that all people hoping to help out should have pretty good knowledge of the universe of Mobile Suit Gundam (including the entire original TV series and its 3 movies, 08th MS Team, Z/ZZ Gundam, Gundam 0080, Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory, Gundam 0083 Last Blitz of Zeon, and Char's Counterattack).
Map maker (should have some ideas on how to do ground-based combat maps, or at least maps with a ground for the background). This person will have lots of work to do (like me).
Assistant model makers. I'll be the lead model maker, but I can't do it alone. You should go to www.gundam.com, www.gundamofficial.com, or www.mahq.net (the last one is probably your best resource) for images of the various mecha and mobile armors of MS Gundam.
Texturers. We'll all be needing your help most of all, since this person isn't too good at making textures on his own (that's me, by the way. Yeah, I suck at custom-made textures, which we'll be using a lot of). I can provide various images to go off of, but you'll be the ones to make the models come to life.
I can handle the ODF files myself.
Anyone good with physics files. We'll need you, too.
And, finally, anyone who is good at making some simple weapons. Machine guns, beam rifle blasts, etc. They won't be too complicated, but the mod will definitely not be using much in the way of phasers.
Anywho, if anyone AT ALL could help in the least bit, I'd be eternally grateful (and you'll get full credit for your contributions, no matter how small they are). I'll see about starting up a web page or something in the future.
Let me know at [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email] if you are interested, have suggestions/ideas, etc.
I didn't make it!

I have many mods that can be reconverted to base files (3ds, lw0, 3dmax, cob, .scn) So you guys can use them for your games.
I prefer FS2 cause we are trying to do the same thing you are. BUT this game is from the fighter pilots pov (like x wing Vs tie)
My name is Star Dragon and I fly Getter 1-X (a modified veritech with getter rays and protoculture combined).
In our fleet we have probably 500 ship types to choose from from the following genres:
Robotech Star Wars Babylon 5 BattleStar Galactica Main FS2 camapign
And MANY individual ships created by modelers (current total around 200) of all types from fighters to ultra huge capital ships (all ships in game are to scale meaning the veritech is close to the f-14 in size and the cap ships are between 1 - 22 KM in length!)
Here is a screenshot of the largest battle I got to work without crashing my new system. Both fleets (good and evil) have 25 capships and 200 fighters of various types from all shows. It was awesome...
We now have 3km Borg cubes and I converted the Soverign and defiant and got shields on them, also ported the photons and quantoms :cool:
I took a donated model and textured it so that is now my Gundam White Base (we still need mecha to launch from it).
I have now obtained BLACK BEAMS so we have gravity blast cannons for the Nadesico - which incidentally can be used as whitebase)...
I'm not here to push our game, but to show you what we got and what you can have to try to help you out. We have around 200 custom weapons from fighter weapons to capship beams/missiles.
Now what I am looking for is an editor to convert star trek models (either the .odf or .sod formats) to other ones I can convert like .3ds or .cob) so I can get them into the fleet!
Oh yeah I converted 8 Star wars ships (some fighters and imperial caps) and the cylon tanker recently.
Please let me know here (or email)ICQ#5256653 If you want what we have and can give us things we need like Low poly models of MECHA and other types of fighters/cap ships from tv or animation..
BTW I found someone who made the Arcadia and Yamato but they wont give it up :( So I am especially looking for Gundams and a yamato! One special request is that is anyone has a Getter Robo G (no the origianl) I need it for the game and my fan vid. I can make the planes warp out almost on top of each other and then splice in the animation combining sequence in so they form the robot and then have the model warp in so it looks like one action. CHANGE GETTER ONE!
Thank you for reading this... Pic below...

SDF-1 and the alliance is defending a ridiculously HUGE sation in orbit around Earth when a Borg Armada shows up. here is SDF-1 getting the first shot in cause of the Macross Cannon's awesome range. Note the various veritechs/battle pods illuminated by the blast. this shows you the scale of the ships.
I forgot to mention. release 2 for Robotech and Baylon 5 mods are comming within the next 2 months. Also as part of the team I played the Wing Commander Alpha and it was awesome! 20 ships so far and they plan on doing a WCIII/IV storyline with ships from ALL WC's 1 through 5!!! I felt like I was back in WCIII it was that good! Tehy plan on releasing a demo soon. ALso various user made FS2 campaings are comming out so you can take stuff from them like the Lightning beams and new missiles. My favorite ships are sharp looking fighters, Carriers, or WWII looking battleships. Pic Below.. Enjoy!
