does anyone have hardpoint maps they'd be willing to share for p81's sovereign that got ported from bc/sfcIII to armada 2??:confused:
personal use only... i can't make models or textures so i don't bother bringing any of my mods to the table...i'm not as good as you all are...:bows:
and if no one has the maps...can someone tell me what i need to find them and where i can get it? your help is greatly appreciated...:borg:

One method (although a slow one) is to create a few test phasers and have them fire out of the first few hardpoints, say 01 through 04. Draw a picture of the ship, marking the locations the phasers fire out of the ship. Repeat with the next hardpoints until there are no more, making sure you don't miss one. Oh, if you have the Storm 3D viewer, you can find out how many HPs the model has, so you know how many hp locations you need to test.

Easiest way, there is a program out there that allows you to open a model to view hardpoints, however I can't for the life of me remember the name.
Don't quote me here but assimviewer or something could be the name of it.
well that's a start...and the phaser way i thought of but wanna use as a last resort ya know? lol i used to have storm 3d on my old pc, but i hadn't bothered downloading it again because i didn't till just recently start playing this again...weird how my laptop handles p81's sovereign a lot better than my old pc did...lol
well, i have a couple of jobs to do for other people tomorrow. If you like, you can send me the version you are using (as i'm sure it's been hardpointed more than once by different people), and i'll draw you one up ;)
well i just tried assimveiw, assimsoft...those web sites seem to be gone now...i tried downloading milkshape 3d off of the a2filefront site but when i try to run the program it comes up and says it has stopped working like the program is corrupted or something to that effect...any ideas on that?

well dam...if you can pull it up on the screen and it'll show em all just take a screenshot and i can use that....i'm not picky...lol honestly i'd like to be able to do this myself because i don't have a single stock fed ship left except the mining freighter...lol a lot of ships and i wanna update just about all of em...lol
and the one i have is the p81 sovereign 1.0 off of a2filefront absolutely love that ship...awesome textures...and i just grabbed the excalibur class off of there that has transmission as the developer...instant classic that ship is...starts out a little bit big though...lol
progress is always a good thing...
got the newest (albeit) trial milkshape software, along with the plugins for armada 2 from...
however, it says it can only import stock models...if there is a way around this, trust me, i'm not remodeling anyones ships for 2 reasons, i've never done it before and i'd be wasting my time, and 2, who can improve upon perfection?
that's not to mention the time it would take to find out who's stuff i have contact em, let em know i'm not making a release mod just a personal one, yeah sounds selfish i know...but nobody wants to play an overpowered federation fanboy mod (unless of course i let you in to know that the borg are twice as powerful to make it fun)...besides i've barely touched the klinks and rommys...mostly because there isn't a lot out there, i don't know how to mod the weapons and i don't have enough experience or knowledge of those races stuff... n e ways, long story short...anybody know how to import non stock models? lol
there is no easy way to import non-stock models. Probably best to not bring the subject up either. If you need info about the subject, just do a forum search on the subject as it has come up many times. This will also show you what a controversial subject it is. That's why i offered to do it for you.
gotchya...will check it out... much appreciated...
[Edit]well...if the offer is still good i'll go back thru and look up what i've got and whenever you're not busy we can go from there? lol[/Edit]
Just to be clear, the offer was for your original request of a hp map for p81's sovereign.
sure absolutely, that's what I'm really after. i'd have settled on the unmentionable topic from above, but your help is greatly appreciated. lol and it is p81_s_sovereign that i have that was made by Rick Knox "pneumonic81" and converted to A2 by Micheal Kelly (that should clear any qualms)
but just in case anyone else is reading so there's no concerns...
i have gone thru the readme's of everything i've downloaded, gotten all the names for everyone who's worked on them and compiled them into one huge readme.
again i'll say i'm not using these for any release mods, but I've checked all the other forums including the permissions forum and I believe i've taken the steps necessary to not cause a fuss or stir. though i'm sure if someone wants to make a drama out of it they will. lol thanx to any and all who've assisted.
