For my TMP mod I am going to be removing the registries from the ships with the exception of the hero units.

Now I do not own Photoshop or Paintshop or any of those advanced programs. So is there a freeware program out there that can do this for me quickly or do I have to remove the registries by editting it pixel by pixel? Like I am currently doing.

Or is there anyone out there willing to lend a hand?

Since there are only Federation models with registries there would only be around a dozen or so to do.

I am also enquiring about adding a registry to a ship. One of the texture sets already has the correct name but the wrong number, and the other set has the wrong name and number. Plus I may have a couple more campaign hero ships that will require a removal and application of the registry.

Again anyone interested or able to help out would be great.

There are 30 day trials that you could use around.

GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/) is an open source project with photoshop like tools. Its not got all the tools that PS has but its good enough for something like this. My suggestion for a job like this would be to use the clone tool to clone an area of hull over the registry.

It depends on the models. I have the two Excelsior Class ships (I believe the same ones as which you've got), and with some work, I managed to edit over the registry for both of them (the normal and refit) - though on;y needed to do one. I've also got Porty's Ambassador (the one on A2Files) without the registry, along with Darth Spankey / Captian Fingers' Miranda, Constitution & Constellation, but I've heard (from you) that you don't like those models...

I may do the same thing for Armada 2.5... but that would be a lot of registries for me to edit... Good luck Majest, if all else fails I'll do some for you...

I may have to look into that a little more.

I don't dislike the models from Captain Fingers, they are high quality work, I said that they won't match the other models I already have.

Thanks Lord_Trekie, all my cruisers don't have registries as well as my destroyers and my corvette. That would mean only my Excelsiors, frigate and non-combat ships would require registry removal. I will attempt to do the non-combats myself as they don't seem too hard. But I may take you up on your offer about the Excelsiors and possibly the frigate at a later date.

I would be glad to help out also if you needed it. I just need to ask though, I am pretty sure that GIMP has a clone brush tool. why not just use that on the texture file, all you owuld have to do it set it to clone a clean section of the hull, and just brush over the registry. Unless you can't find a clean section on the hull, then that would be a problem.

Okay guys, I need some assistance here.

I have a blank Excelsior texture that needs a registry added to it. The original texture only had the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B on it. What I need is USS Excelsior NCC-2000 put on it for a hero unit that will be in the first mission. I can send you both the Enterprise one and the blank one.

I also have a Constitution texture that says USS Enterprise NCC-1701 but I require it to say USS Enterprise NCC-1701-A. So I either need the A added so it matches the text thats already there or the text removed and new text added.

If anyone could help me out here it would be appreicated. I can send you the files but I would require an address so PM it to me if you can help out.

Thanks.
