I just tried the "Alliance" Mod for Armada 1 today, it wasn't bad. What really caught my eye right off the bat was the shield texture, it's great. The texture itself, and how it replaces that stupid blue pulse or w/e it's supposed to be (when the shields fail) with a grey one so you can still tell the shields are down, but it doesn't look so .. wierd. I'm really not all that crazy about the mod itself though, so i was going to just take out the shield texture- (FOR MY OWN PERSONAL USE.. I'm not going to be distributing them or anything so don't worry about the permissions.. unless i need permission to use them outside the alliance mod..) it's just too bad i have absolutely no idea where the shield textures are, or what they're called. (I'd assume they're in textures/rgb.. but i cant find them) surely someone one there knows about shield textures, and I'd appreciate it if that someone could tell me the file names and where to find them. :lookaround: if it's possible, I'd also like to use these textures for armada 2 as well.

Not sure with A1, but in A2 it's the Xshlddie.tga I think you're looking for, when the shields go down. Qapla

thanks, and it is your mod. probably the only reasons that i dont really like it are because i have armada 2, so the whole cardassian and dominion wars thing isnt very new to me, and also because my graphics card is a lame nvidia with like 120 mb, so it cant handle too many ships on the map at once, and i dont sacrifice graphics quality for speed. anyway, i just wanted to make sure i dont end up getting hanged by the a2 forum staff er something because i took someone else's totally awsome shield textures :D

ill add em if u want, or achilles can- they're his shields. it doesnt matter if they're nothing special, they still ROCK in my opinion. iono, if it's as simple as u say it is, it might just be so awsome to me because i know absolulitly nothing about texturing and SODing. i just started making my own mods like a week ago.
