Can anyone convert this model of a Dominion Hor'da Class Fighter to SOD format (with textures and with hardpoints included)?

Okay. So a few things to note here:

1) Where did this model come from originally as you've not provided credit to the original author. 2) The model has embedded textures (no seperate texture files or any sort). 3) The model is also 42280 polys, so it would be reckless to convert it to Armada format.

Now why on earth didnt' you check these things before?? This model would require a much lower poly version to be created AND a set of fresh textures. Do everyone a favour and please check your sources BEFORE making this kind of a request.

Always bare in mind that www.scifi-meshes.com and www.startrekaustralia.com are classified as being "high poly CGI mesh" based sites. Therefore all the models are likely to be 10,000 polys and above with the highest being around 1.5 million polys.

I do believe I've seen a low-poly version in a homeworld mod somewhere, which could be converted to sod with minimal effort.

Yes, my model is from www.startrekaustralia.com and it is high-poly, and I suggest you might have to make your own texture that is similar to the picture. You could make it low-poly so it works in Armada 2, and what does that low-poly version of the Hor'da Class Fighter from that Homeworld mod look like?

It's basically the same, but with less detail of course. The textures aren't quite as good, so you might consider making another set. I think if you look into on a search engine, you should find a star trek mod for the original homeworld that has it. It's a dominion war mod (no surprise there), so it won't be hard to spot.

DS. Can you please provide a link?? I've had a look with google and I cant' find it, or at least those I've come across don't seem to be the correct one.

If you can then I'm sure that a low poly version wouldn't be difficult to retexture with renders of the CGI version.

I found the link: http://www.trekmods.com/homeworld/soa.php I'm going to download it myself, as it has several nice ships in it.

Draconis, I went through all the pics of the dominion ships and what not from that mod, but the Horde isnt in there. Unless they just dont have a picture of it, I dont think it is in there.
