The title sums it up, has anyone thought of doing a full race mod for the Ferengi? I've been thinking recently that they could offer a unique twist on gameplay, using underhanded tactics and trickery over the brute force of most stock races. I'd work on it myself, but since I lack the capability to do modeling, skinning or HP mapping, I'd need some help doing it. Anyone interested?

There already are two or three Ferengi full race mods around. Were you thinking of doing another?

:cool:

So you cant do any of the modeling, but you can do the coding part, eh? Why not make a compilation mod of the best bits of the other ferengi full races? Im sure getting permission wouldnt be too hard, and the community would end up with another uber race mod (to go with the SB34 Comp mod for the feds, and Dan1025's Vulcans and Cardassians... Just a thought? Maybe you will learn a wee bit about Hp adding and such while you do it? I dont think you will find a modeler with the time and motivation to help on this man, sorry, but they are pretty thin on the ground at the moment.

This sounds like an excellent opportunity to learn how to do all the things you stated you currently do not know how to do. Modelers are indeed thin around here at the mo'. I will try to help out where I can if you ask but I am still learning the finer points of MS3D myself. Texturing currently has me tied up in knots. Plus, I have a few things I am play testing or starting on myself.

And to go along with my upcoming mod. It takes lots of the community stuff.

Not to brag but I did the first Ferengi Mod, then it was followed by someone who liked mine, so he did his version of it. Both mods have a mixture of other races

There is also plenty of Ferengi designs in other communities that can easily be ported if you're eager enough for a new full race mod. Even some re-texture of stock or third-party stations would be acceptable for the Ferengi considering their society and their values.

Porting and re-texturing is pretty easy to learn, they are the first things I learnt. ;)

Alright, thanks to everyone for support, I think I'll take Professor Farnworth's dinosaurJR's suggestion and look into a compilation mod as soon as I figure out why A2 refuses to launch (NEVER leave your girlfriend's brother alone with editing tools and your A2 install:banghead:)....

So, did you kill him slowly or just set phasers on "Obliterate"? :lol: Can we have a link to the YouTube vid? You did tape this, right? So we can show others why this was necessary? And prevent prevent damage to other A2 players before this happens again? Kidding. At least you hope I'm kidding. I am unsure at the present moment.

Can you describe exactly what the install is doing when it tries to launch? This is a pretty common problem around here which has about two or three things which cause it. Someone may be able to help.

It's fixed, he was fracking around with the Read-Only attributes, I set things straight again. Why do the beautiful ones always have idiots for siblings?
