Arcadia Class
Thank you for downloading the Arcadia CLASS ship for Armada 2.This ship is rather special because it uses a special Torpedo texture made by me.Look for it.To install it just extract it to your Armada2 Directory.

WARNING!!!!-If you have a mod installed now chances are this will ruin your current copy of Armada2 and you will have to reinstall.If you want to install it with a mod scroll down.

Installing over a current mod.
How do I do it?

Well if you want to use this ship in a mod that you have it is alittle difficult.
0.[Yes zero is infact a number :-) ] to edit the files I list below you will have to right click on the file then open up the properties window and uncheck "read only".

1.Put the sods into the sod folder

2.Put the Textures into the texture/rgb folder

3.Put the farcaidia ODF file (NOT THE SHIPYARD!!!) into the ODF/ships directory.Then put the "aphot and aphoto" odf file into the "odf\weapons\Photons" directory. Now here comes the hard part.

4.Go into the sprites folder in your root Armada2 directory.Then open up the GUI Global file.Scroll down to "# Federation build buttons @reference=64
@tmaterial=default" and copy and paste this line in.
b_farcaidia		garcaidia		0	0	64	64

Then at the 
# Federation wireframes


Paste this in.
farcaidiaw1			ArcadiaWire	0	0	48	48		
farcaidiaw2			ArcadiaWire	48	0	48	48		
farcaidiaw3			ArcadiaWire	96	0	48	48		
farcaidiaw4			ArcadiaWire	144	0	48	48		
farcaidiaw5			ArcadiaWire	192	0	48	48

5.Open up the Techtree folder and you will find some files called "fulltech" and "tech1" go into those and copy and paste the following lines (the beginning is fine)
farcaidia.odf 0

6.(almost done!!)Now go into the ODF file then into the stations file intil you find a file called "fyard2".Open it then go down intil you see something LIKE (it might not be exactly the same!!)
//Construction Parameters
buildItem0 = "ffrigate"
buildItem1 = "fgalaxy"
buildItem2 = "fspecial"
buildItem3 = "fbattle"
at the end add buildItem* = "farcaidia" Be sure to replace the * at the end of Item with the number you are on.In my case 4.So it will look like

//Construction Parameters
buildItem0 = "ffrigate"
buildItem1 = "fgalaxy"
buildItem2 = "fspecial"
buildItem3 = "fbattle"
buildItem4 = "farcaidia"

7.(this is to get the custom torpedo working.Note that this step is not optional)Open the file called "weapon" in the sprites folder.Now go down to the section called "@reference=256
@tmaterial=additive" (note that it MUST be there) and copy and paste this in.

# Chakotay Torpedo by Chakotay of STAmods
btorp             btorpedo	      0	0	64	64	@anim=tex4x4
