File Description

Once again, a set of Cardassian ship ports done by CanadianBorg, this time with the questionable content replaced with a "heavily modified" version. Hopefully that'll be sufficient to get around the copyright breach of the previous version.

As said in the previous review, it'd be nice to see some original content from CanadianBorg that wasn't a ported model. Still, as ports go, these aren't bad. And most of the comprehensive modding required to get them to fully work in-game --with new weapons sprites and buildbuttons (but no wireframes).

:cool:

Cardassian Ship Pack by KMA_Kane and Deemon, Converted to A2 by CanadianBorg

Any pointers or advice would be appreciated.

This is a set of Cardassian ships ships for A2. It features 13 new Cardassian ships, from an advanced scout to a dreadnaught capable of taking on a whole fleet at once. All the ships were created by KMA_Kane (thanks for letting me use these!) for SFC3, and the yard was made by Deemon (whom I was unable to contact prior to release due to a dead e-mail) for BC. Textures by Zorg, whom I was unable to contact due to a dead e-mail. The weapon sprites (apart from the arc weapon on the dreadnaught) are by AnunC8 (originally for Legacy, thanks for letting the community use these), and the arc weapon is from the computer game "Sins of a Solar Empire" by Ironclad Games and Stardock Entertainment, heavily modified by apoclaydon (thanks for that, man!).

Installation:

Open the archive file and extract the folder "Cardassian Pack" somewhere outside your A2 directory.

Copy all the folders inside to your root A2 directory. If it asks to overwrite, say yes.

Now, open gui_global.spr in the "sprites" folder in your A2 main directory with Notepad, and scroll down to the Cardassian build buttons. Now enter:

b_cyard3			gbcyard3		0	0	64	64
b_caldara			gbcaldara		0	0	64	64
b_cboknor			gbcboknor		0	0	64	64
b_cbralek			gbcbralek		0	0	64	64
b_cetam				gbcetam			0	0	64	64
b_cgroumall			gbcgroumall		0	0	64	64
b_chutes			gbchutes		0	0	64	64
b_ckoranak			gbckoranak		0	0	64	64
b_ckraxon			gbckraxon		0	0	64	64
b_cprakesh			gbcprakesh		0	0	64	64
b_crabol			gbcrabol		0	0	64	64

b_ctrager			gbctrager		0	0	64	64
b_cvetar			gbcvetar		0	0	64	64

below the last item.

Now go down to special weapon buttons and enter the following:

b_gtragergate			gbionstm00		0	0	64	64

below the last item.

Now save and close gui_global.spr and open weapon.spr.

Find this entry:

Now scroll down to the Cardassian special weapons and enter the following:

gtragergate.odf 2 cyard3.odf cupgrade.odf

Now save and close tech1.tt. Open fulltech.tt with Notepad and enter the following anywhere in the list:

cboknor.odf 0
cbralek.odf 0

cprakesh.odf 0
crabol.odf 0
cravinok.odf 0
ctrager.odf 0
cvetar.odf 0
gtragergate.odf 0

Now save and close the file.

Now Go to the odf folder, and go to "stations". Open cconst.odf with Notepad, and enter the following:

buildItemxx = "cyard3"

Where "xx" is the next number in the list (replace it with this number).

Save and close cconst.odf.

That's it! You're ready to use the Cardassian pack in your game! I might be coming out with more A3 leftovers by the way, so stay tuned!
