Hello fellow modders

I usually go by the name of Squire James, but i had an old account on here i used to use on BF1942 files forum so i thought i save bandwidth and carry on using it. Anyways i thought i'd share a little time with you to introduce my only two publically released mods, The Klingon Academy Total Conversion and the one still currently under construction, ELITE Encounters.

************************************************************************ The Klingon Academy Total Conversion (KATC or KA:TC) ************************************************************************ Type: Total Conversion (A1)

Basis: Star Trek Klingon Academy

Era: TMP Era

Description: This mod involves all the vessels (and more) from the Interplay Space Combat Simulator, Klingon Academy. I have got all the sounds and textures from KA and extracted the models from SFC II , given the difficulty in converting KA Models into useable Armada SODs. I have tried to make it as close to KA as possible, but also fun, and i think (repeat i think!) i have been sucessful. Give it a whirl if you get the time. Available at AFC, i reccomend only downloading the V.2 Release and the Gorn Torpedo Fix, NOT v1.4

Screenshots and Captions:

Klingon Starbase 422 is visited by the IKS Ta'Roth , a VoD'Leh Class Battlecruiser, and her escort, the IKS D'ral , a B'rel Class Escort. The Third ship is an unidentified Construction Vessel, stationed at Starbase 442

************************************* ELITE Encounters (EE or EC) ************************************* Type: Total Conversion (A2)

Basis: ELITE, a classic space trading game by David Braben and Ian Bell

Era: 2150 to 3250 (pre-ELITE to beginning of Frontier First Encounters)

Description: Based upon the classic game ELITE, this mod hopes to try and simulate the environment and atmosphere of ELITE in a modern RTS Environment. Lead the Federal Navy, Imperial Navy, Alliance Navy or the fearsome Thargoids in several wide-scope campaigns and instant action missions. Currently in production, i hope to have it ready in a demo type copy in the next month or so, and now i know what the Thargoids sound like it will be alot easier!

Screenshots and Captions: NOTE: Please, Please, bear in mind that the style of the ships is meant to capture the style that the ships from ELITE had NOT the most realistic they could be. I hate beeing flamed by people saying "your models are crap" and all this. If your still unconvinced have a look at myy other work

(Extreme Right background) Waypoint Station, a Corroliss Type Orbital Trading Post, serenly begins another high orbit of Waypoint

3 Falcon Airfighters from the 101st Airfighter Squadron (The "Fighting Falcons") engage a Civilian Cobra Mk III, proved to be carrying Nerve Gas and Narcotics. The Cobra Mk IIIs systems soon begin to fail, and the hull starts to crack.

NOTE: These are old screenshots, I will post new ones soon

So what do the people here think?

high praise! The only problem with being modest about ones mod and not going around avertising is the lack of awareness people have of it. I mean BI3 and Future Tense deserve all the credit and recognition they get but when someone else tried to compete they kinda get pushed to the sidelines. its like trying to release a new sci-fi film n the same day as the next Star Wars film, not matter how good yours is, is always going to look bad along side the well known other. Still i can't be ungrateful for what praise i have recieved, its been very good and far greater than i expected. I made this mod for me and my best friend and modding comrade, Paul, both big fans of TMP Era Films and Klingon Academy. I decided to release it purely becuase i thought others would enjoy it, and it seems my choice was a wise one.

Anyways within a month or so it should be on Armada2files for download too, a small logistcal complication has caused the delay but it will be on Armada2files eventually
