This mod adds a Dilithium Nebula to Armada II. Each nebula has 40,000 units of dilithium, and so they would be preferable over the traditional Dilithium Moon that is in the game. See the readme for more details on this cool mod.
Resources tight? Running out of dilithium? Has your opponent got all the goodies on the map leaving you with a moon soon to be expired? Or need to ambush your enemy? Then put the nebula nearby and watch the frieghters come, attack and the enemy should send reinforcements! There is much strategic value to where you place it and your own fleet. Section 31 are the builders using thier planet and nebula building technology. They have cooked up a dilithium nebula packed with 40,000 units of dilithium. (AI should favour this over standard moons) If it is the nearest resource then frieghters will automatically go there otherwise direct them. To balance the game this nebula can be targetted and destroyed - so guard it! So get some extra fuel to build up your fleet or set a honey trap! The nebula will glow blue inside which will fade as the dilithium is mined. (Freighters should automatically go to the next available resource once the nebula is depleted. Then you can decommission it (recycles in place) and rebuild elsewhere. To install: odf to odf/stations folder sod to SOD tgas to Textures/RGB bitmap pic to bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/Ship Images Decide which construction ship will build it and add: buildItemXX = "fdith" XX = next number in sequence. Now save and close, find techtree file, open tech 1 and add under last Fed station: fdith.odf 1 fresear.odf // dilithium nebula Save and close and find fulltech.tt and add under last Fed ship: fdith.odf 0 Save and close and find the Sprite file, locate gui_global and add under last Fed ship: b_fdith gbfdith 0 0 64 64 (align if needed) and then scroll to wireframes and add under last Fed entry: fdithw1 podwireframe02 0 48 48 48 fdithw2 podwireframe02 0 48 48 48 fdithw3 podwireframe02 0 48 48 48 fdithw4 podwireframe02 0 48 48 48 fdithw5 podwireframe02 0 48 48 48 Now you are ready to build the nebula! The buildbutton is the Borg sphere (I do not know how to do buttons) The wireframes will be that of one of the pods. The bitmap is one I took during the game. NOTE: Even though the readout says empty it will be packed with dilithium, it's using the cargo ship as the key label as that was the only way I could get the resource bar 2 show rather than the building bar. ("There is no present construction") If you put moons and planets as the key label,the button disappears from the building list so it must use a station or ship as a label! You can still tell how much is left in the nebula (see screenshots). --0-- Full credits to Activision I have merely tweaked what is already there to mine dilithium from a nebula!
