Hello. I was wondering if someone could make these ships for me? I would like to add them to my B5 mod am making called Era of Destruction. I have the permission to do these ships from the creator. IF no one can; can you please tell me whats the standered sod polycount? cause he said he would when he had time but hes currently doing his mod for x3? or does someone have a Narn G'Qon sod and minbari Sharlin Sod i could modify with Milkshape 1.7.0. when ever i try to modify sods it gives me an error saying stock sods only. If someone did this i could mod game files for you. since that's where my talent is.
well thanks for you time guys.
here are the ships

Hmm, I like the look of that G'Quon Cruiser. Though I suck at textures so I could only do the model. Something to do when I get bored of doing BFG. I may give it a blast. Oh yea, high poly or low?
i would like both, question whats the standered poly for a2 and whats the high for a2?

Erm max poly count I'd say for a cruiser would be 2500 max, or if its gonna be churned out quite a lot maybe 2000. Though if you have a high-end system you can go pretty much as high as you want.
ok sweet cause the person that made the pics is modding X3 and he says that games poly cont is like 30000 per ship. my system is some what hi. my spec are
current system 2.0 ghz amd semperon 1066 fbs L2 128kb 1.5gigs of ddr 7600gs 512mb pci-e os xp
new system being build P4 3.4ghz 800fbs 2m Lc 2.5gigs of ddr 7600gs 512mb pci-e os xp
also i am looking for experienced modders. if ur interested give me a email at [email]email@example.com[/email]
oh ok. heres a question is there any way to get sod files that i could edit? I can't make a ship for the life of me but i can edit them to look like the ships i posted. my modding talent lays in editing and making files, buttons stuff like that. so if its not to much trouble could i get a sharlin and g qon sod to edit on milk 3d 1.7.0? just a thought
Could some one tell me how i can change the texture of a sod to a different one? I want to see what a ship would look like with different skins. I know the A1 storm program could do that but i haven't found a program for a2 yet any thoughts.
I have been trying to figure it out if i can set how many ship yard can be built?
Am also looking for ships/stations builders to help with my mod. If anyone is interested send me a message. the mod is called Era of Destruction. its been in the making for a while now at least 2 years, and i find that am at a wall. except for a few ships and stations and some pics needed the mod is done.
This is an update mod for the current A2 B5 out there, I do have permission from A2files to release this when am ready and if they approve.
what i have done in this mod
I have redone the combat to be similar to the show.
Shadow and Vorlon ships/stations will destroy any ship in one hit (except for their dreadnoughts which are pure death machines which require 10 hits from other Shadow and Vorlon ships and around 20 hits from the other races)
Minbari ships/stations will destroy being the strongest of the other younger will be able to destroy any other ships besides the Shadows and Vorlons in 4 direct hits
All other races ships/stations will need 5 direct hits to destroy any ship except Shadow and Vorlons which require 10 direct hits to be destroyed
Direct hit chance for all races except the Shadows and Vorlons is to .35 each ship weapon has a 3 out of 6 chance of hitting a its target damage given per ship is number of weapons / 5 main hits Shadows and Vorlons is set to 1.0 1 hit kill weapon
note if target is moving harder to hit. stationary easier to hit
Note heavy class ships such as battle cruisers and dreadnoughts can take more of a beating
have redone the build times.
ships and stations take a while to build. so no more super big fleets in the first 10 min of the game. the quickest build time for non fighter class ship is no less 80.0 the heavier the class of ship the longer the build. all fighters build at 30.0 and require no officers but 1 crew
defense stations build around 140.0 and no officers but heavy crew all other stations build around 210.0 with mixed officers and heavy crew
all ships require a lot of metal except for Vorlons, Shadows and Minbari
the Minbari need a lot of Q40
all races except the Vorlons and Shadows need a lot of crew
Officers For all officer Low Med and High is set to 500 for the Vorlons and Shadows and 1000 for everyone else
AI is very brutal so be careful when playing
yes you could play it with unlimited resources, but that takes the fun out of it. for best game experience play with resources
i have made this a totally tactical game. Thanks for you time guys

I posted my responce over in your thread on my site. As for the poly range, a cruiser is a high produced vessel so I wouldn't go over 2000. Regardless of your systems, as not everyone has the same specs. For a battleship 2500 max, for the same reason.
