Anyone Thought Of Adding A Cloak To The Defiant Class Or Anyone Know If It's Been Done I Personal Think It Would Make It A Far More Useful Class For Things Like Scouting And Defence Along Boarders. What Are Your Thoughts
It's not a bad idea, and not that hard either. Just add the following to your fdestroy.odf file under the weapons entries.
// Cloaking Device weapon7 = "grcloak" weaponHardpoints7 = "root"
yup, has been done several times as part of a defiant mod. if you look up the download section you will find that there are a lot of defiant mods out there - from better textures up to almost silly godships.
UchihaSasuke02, please send me your email address via the Private Message system and I will send you a copy of the Defiant-class I use. I think it has what you are looking for.
My "Valiant Class" mod (not the new ship the Defiant refit ODF-MOD) has given the Defiant the cloak ability aswell as phasers and more torps. We (Modders) Are One.
When I add a cloak, I always stick it on or near the hp governing shields. Makes sense. I mean, you saw in Nemesis that if a cloaked vessel takes a hit that is not on the cloaking device it shimmers and stays invisible. That way, if you set a specific hard point the opponent has to hit, it's harder for him to knock out your cloak, even if he detects you.
