Just over a year ago, a 16 year old boy from England stumbled across a website called Armada 2 filefront (or something like like) and he immediately started downloading various ships and stations. Then it came to adding them and he was stumped, but he working through thanks to a certain BBOM and said website and its forums. Three guesses who that was.

For the last few months I have been working on my own gui's and buildbuttons and my own two races, Section 31 and the Tal Shiar, locked in a hidden war fought by their secret armies. Space is very big, and very easy to hide in when you have to. So far, I have been concentrating on Section 31 and "balancing" it out compared to stock. It's (hopefully) not too strong nor too weak. However, while this sounds all well and good, since it was not intended to be released, its as just a cobbling together of mods that I personally loved, and as such the ships and stations' models are not my own.

However I have *just* started to model and will hopefully be able to add some hopefully decent models of my own. The thing is, the models I hope to create will be inspired by the ones I have downloaded. These "inspired models" are just that, inspired by. I have not edited anybody's models because

  1. I don't have the unlocked importer and I don't intend to open up that can of worms again, and
  2. I don't intend AT ALL to try to pass over somebody elses work as my own.

I have made a list of the models and textures that I have used, and for some of the textures I have edited, but only so far as registry removal and I hope I don't offend or infuriate anybody because that has never been my intention because I never planned on releasing the race. So here is the list as it stands, as I said I intend to replace some models with my own provided I can get up to the level that these models are, because I think that they are truly amazing which is why I have them in the first place.

I will attach the list in a seconds post, it doesnt seem to want to add a large one.

I have already asked several people for permission and I will get back to them ASAP. This post is I think just a let-you-know and I will ask properly for permissions when I have a final list.

So the questions I have to ask are:

Should I release my Section 31 mod? Screenshots to follow.

Does anybody see any problems with me using the models and textures indicated here once I have permission?

I am trying to be open so as not to offend or infuriate anybody, I am simply trying to give something back to the community which has started and supported my modding, because I am now looking at computer game design at university and a career hopefully in this field.

Many thanks, Delta_Dids

Permission granted for usage and editing. Just make sure that the texture editings are perfect to the originals as I didnt make the textures. The Nemesis style spacedock requires the following credits:

- Original high poly CGI based 3d model and texture files created by S-Stephen and released through Scifi-Meshes.com (no other contact details available). - This intermediate poly version created using the above model as complete reference and also aided in the texture creation process (high detailed renderings used), as done by Major A Payne.
