Weapons, weapons, weapons. Can you get enough weapons in a game? Especially a futuristic one? No, I think not. And Armada 2 modders have only just scratched the surface in the variety of trek-authentic weapons they could have made. So I'm going to attempt (I emphasise that word) to make some new ones, starting with a mega-powerful torpedo as seen in Voyager, but not modded (to my knowledge) in A2. I ain't tellin what it is, just in case somebody quicker decides to do it, but if I can get it to work... oh boy it'll be ace. While I'm not (yet) a pro modder, I know there's a few out there who don't have a clue at all... so... ask me! I'm doin weapons right now, so if theres any you'd like to see me attempt, gimme a bell. I need the practise, and they might turn out to be good! I won't be using any custom animations yet, mainly coz I dont know how (suggestions would be nice), so don't expect anything totally revolutionary from me yet, just some nice add-ons.
Oh you mean the Transphasic torpedo as seen in the Season 7 final of Voyager, which HAS been done. I'm not sure if its been released mind you.
Not that one... keep guessing...
Well the torpedo you describe IS the one thats in voyager.
all I said was mega-powerful... theres loadsa new weapons introduced in Voyager. Transphasic gets done by loads of people, in Bridge Commander as well. No-ones done this one yet...
OMG!!! It's that chroniton torp isnt it?!? You know, the Krenim one that had Kes goin back in time that time. An then the same 1 hit Voyager again but this time Kes wasn't there. An it can pass through shields because its out of phase with our time thingy right? An I know you said you aren't doin custom animations, but if you're ever able to do that, or if any modders who are are readin this, how about that beam weapon thing the Aeon used on Voyager?
;) Hehe. The beam weapon thingy from the Aeon shouldn't be too hard to do without additional animations, a few special weapons quite closely resemble it, just need the thickness rescaling. I was thinking about that. And, while I'm on the subject, the torpedo has been temporarily put on hold. I'm a ;ittle busy with this 'real life' thing I just discovered, so I'm afraid it'll be a couple of weeks yet. And as you're the second person to guess, I'll just say: yeah, its the Chroniton Torpedo. I'm not sure whether to make it a special weapon (i.e. like the Negh'var Ion Cannon) or a standard weapon with a slow firing rate (i.e. like quantums and photons). It'll probably be a special, but I'll see what people think.
