I have been looking for this particular design, made popular in Star Trek DS9, but this particular one does not work. I believe that the problem is the ODF which does not specify a numerical hardpoint for the photon torpedoes but it could be that the sod file does not have a proper hard point for this weapon. In any case, I do not have any tools for editing or even viewing the 3D files and need someones help to make this work. The file download is at: http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Danube_Class;5672 Additionally does anyone know how to get a hold of Redragon? I am interested in seeing if he or another user with the proper editing tools would be willing to convert this file to Armada. I am willing to pay for the services (not the files of course, but the time and expertise of the modder) in converting it.
Anyone can convert that to Armada I. Ok, maybe not anyone, but there are a lot of people who can. Myself included, though I don't know the joint-tree setup for Armada I SOD's. Nevertheless, for the Photons for this ship, use "h_photon" as the hardpoint. This also belongs in the Help Section :)
Thank you SupaStarAsh. So will the alteration of the harrpoint for the photons to "h_photon" correct the problem. I simply cannot get it to launch in instant action or multiplayer without crashing so I was assuming that that was the problem, i.e. the lack of a hardpoint ("hpXX"). As to converting the file, I am a newbie at best. I am trying to learn all of this but do not have the funds to invest at present in all the software nor am I familair enough with it it use it. So, if you are willing to convert it that would be great. I appreciate you speedy reply, I expected to wait a while for someone to respond.
:) The "h_photon" will sort out your torpedo trouble. No doubt about that. As for converting it to Armada I, you'd be best off asking someone else. Though I can convert it to Armada I .SOD, I don't know if there is anything else I need to do in order for it to work.
I am not sure if anything but the sod is required for Armada 1 either. However, if you are willing to do even that much I would be stoked. If not, is there anyone else out there willing to convert the Danube Class to Armada?
I will try it. Should be easy enough. Does anything besides the ODF need changing?
Uhm. I think I found your problem. where the photon torpedo launchers are in the ODF, the hardpoint is simply marked as "photon". I don't think that's right. I will begin testing with my modified version shortly.
