This is the Bandein class from Star Ocean 3. The Bandein class is the most used ship in the Veendeni fleet and the only Veendeni Ship ever seen in Star Ocean 3. It packs quite a punch and should make for some heated battles with the Pangalactic Federation's Battleship.
/*/ Bandein Class Battleship /*/ ------------------------------------ --=Introduction=-- I am happy to present, after a very long time of working on this, the Bandein. For those who have played Star Ocean Till the End of Time this is the Veendeni battleship that appears on a regular basis to blow stuff up. As such the only ship ever seen to take one on was the Pangalactic Federation's Battleships. So, this little beauty is designed specifically to go head to head with that ship that I released a while ago. I do hope you all enjoy this ship as much as I enjoyed making it! --=Armada 1 Installation=-- I can’t possibly leave my A1 fans hanging, so in this little pack is a replacement for the original ship released in the first version. Install is very easy. 1. Copy and paste the rbattle.sod into the Armada 1 SOD folder. 2. Copy and paste the bandein.tga and banengine.tga into the Armada 1 texture/rgb folder. 3. copy and paste the rbattle.odf into the Armada 1 addon folder. And you're done. Now this doesn't do anything for the build button or wireframe, but when Star Ocean 2.0 is released it will. Until then enjoy flying around in this much nicer version of the Bandein. --=Armada 2 Installation=-- This installation takes a bit more work, but no worries; here are the step by step instructions to get her ingame. 1. Moving the Files a. Copy and paste everything in the textures folder found in the A2 folder into your Armada 2 textures/rgb folder. b. Copy and paste the vbattle.sod file into your Armada 2 SOD folder. c. Copy and paste vbattle.odf into the odf/ships folder d. copy and paste everything from the special weapons folder into the odf/special_weapons folder in your Armada 2 directory. e. Copy and paste vdrphot.odf and vdrphotono.odf into the Armada 2 ODF/weapons/photons folder. f. Copy and paste vdrpulse.odf and vdrpulseo.odf into the Armada 2 ODF/weapons/pulse folder. 2. Editing Sprite Files a. First go into the sprites folder of your Armada 2 Directory and locate the gui_global.spr file and the weapon.spr file. Open them both. b. The first file we will edit is the weapons.spr file. Locate the following line: @reference=128 @tmaterial=additive and after it, add the following: vphoton vphot 0 0 32 32 @anim=tex4x4 vpphaser pfpulse1 0 32 128 32 Now locate the following line: @reference=256 # Species 8472 phaser (bio pulse) spphaser spphaser 0 0 150 64 @anim=spphaser_u @anim=spphaser_v @tile_u and after it, add the following: pylon pylon 0 0 256 64 @anim=tex1x4 c. Save and close the weapons.spr file. d. Now we move on to the gui_global.spr file. find the following line: # Federation build buttons @reference=128 @tmaterial=default and add the following after it: b_vbattle bandeinbb 0 0 128 128 Now find this line: # Special weapon buttons @reference=64 @tmaterial=interface and add the following after it: b_pylon gbpylon 0 0 64 64 Now find this line: # Ship Wireframes @reference=128 @tmaterial=interface and add the following after it: vbattlew1 vbattlewf 0 0 128 128 e. Save and close the gui_global.spr file. 3. Editing ODF Files. a. Look in the ODF/stations folder for a suitable shipyard to build the Bandein from. (fyard.odf, fyard2.odf, kyard.odf, etc.) Open it up and look for the following: //Construction Parameters Below this will be a list like this: buildItem0 = "fscout" buildItem1 = "fdestroy2" buildItem2 = "fdestroy" buildItem3 = "fcolony" buildItem4 = "fcruise1" at the end of this list add the following: buildItemX = "vbattle" (X is the next number in the list.) Save and close the shipyard file you used. 4. Editing the tech tree. a. Open up the techtree folder in your Armada 2 Directory and find the tech1.tt file. Open this file and locate the following line: // ***[ FEDERATION SHIPS ]************************ after it, add the following: vbattle.odf 0 pylon.odf 0 save and close the tech1.tt file. --=End of Instructions!=-- You have now completed installation of the Bandein class ship. Now all that's left to do is cause some destruction with it. Have fun! --=Credits=-- The Mesh, textures and odf were all created by me, Adam_Atlantian. Star Ocean is owned by Square-Enix.
