File Description

This is a truly awesome preview of the Beginnings mod from dinosaurJR. As mods go, there are few I'm looking forward to more than Beginnings simply because no one else is doing what this mod promises: an exclusive focus on the time period around the original series.

These ships were designed by Jason Colbert, at the Starfleet Museum site. They're... odd by TOS standards, but they fit. The Avenger class destroyer and Predator class destroyer are here in awesome quality. And since it's from dinosaurJR, you know it's going to be good-- and complete, too. Admirals' log pics, build buttons, wireframes, and quality textures on a decent-poly .SOD file for its type.

Get these original-series beauties today.

:cool:

			dinosaurJR's TOS ship mini pack
				By dinosaurJR


Just thought I would release a little bit of my fourth coming mod, to drum up a little more interest :) In this ship pack you will find:

		The Avenger Class Destroyer
		The Predator Class Destroyer

Also included are build buttons, wireframes and admiral's log pics.
Sadly, there is no .exe to install these ships ,but dont worry, I will 
explain everything... 

		PLEASE NOTE, all text is CASE SENSITIVE!!!

1 - Use win zip (or win rar, if you have it) to extract the zipped contents to the desktop.

2 - take all 4 .sod files and put them into the folder named somthing like: 
					
	c:/programfiles/activision/startrek armadaII/sod

3 - take all of the build buttons (files with the prefix gb) wireframes and texture files and put them into: 
	
	c:/programfiles/activision/startrek armadaII/textures/rgb

4 - take the 2 .bmp files and put them into: 

         c:/programfiles/activision/startrek armadaII/bitmaps/admiralslog/shipimages

5 - take the odf file named "lrpulse" and put it in:

	c:/programfiles/activision/startrek armadaII/odf/weapons/phasers

6 - put the all odf files that remain into:

         c:/programfiles/activision/startrek armadaII/odf/ships

Now that all the files are in the right place, time to add the ships to the 

game...

7 - The following should add the build buttons to the game - add the 

following lines to the gui_global 
( found at - c:/programfiles/activision/star trekarmadaII/sprites )

b_Faven	gbFaven		0	0     64	     64

b_Fpred 	gbFpred		0	0     64	     64

		
Note that each one of these lines must be added at the correct place in the file - after the line

# ******** build buttons
@reference=128
@tmaterial=default

@reference=64

WHERE ********* = the race that each ship belongs to - hope that makes 

sense? Please note that I have 
personally assigned the Terrans to replace the Cardassians.

8 - now for the wire frames :)

again in the gui_global, enter for each ship:

Favenw1	fedwireframe_8	 0 	0	256    256
Favenw2	fedwireframe_8	 0 	0	256    256
Favenw3	fedwireframe_8     0 	0	256    256
Favenw4  fedwireframe_8     0 	0	256    256
Favenw5	fedwireframe_8     0 	0	256    256

Fpredw1	fedwireframe_9	0 	0	256	256
Fpredw2	fedwireframe_9	0 	0	256	256
Fpredw3	fedwireframe_9	0 	0	256	256
Fpredw4	fedwireframe_9	0 	0	256	256
Fpredw5	fedwireframe_9	0 	0	256	256

Again, each wireframe reference must be added after the line

#******** wireframes
@reference=256

WHERE ********* = the race that each ship belongs to.

9 - To add the ship to a shipyard, you must open the ship yards ODF file 
(found in c:/programfiles/activision/star trek armadaII/odf/stations) and 

add the line:

	
	buildItem# = "Faven"		- add this line to fyard.odf
	buildItem# = "Fpred"		- add this line to fyard.odf

note that # = the next space in the build list - so if the one above is 

buildItem7 ="" then the next must be 
buildItem8 =""  and so on...
	
10 - now that all of thats done, you need to add the ships to the tech tree:
open the folder techtree , found at 

c:/programfiles/activision/star trek armadaII/techtree

and look
for the file fulltech.tt. 

Here you will find a list of all the odf files relating to ships and 

stations etc, grouped according to race.
at the end of each race's list, you need to add the line

		Faven.odf 0   	- at the end of the federation list
		Fpred.odf 0      - at the end of the federation list  	
		
now save and exit. open the file tech1.tt, found in the same folder, and 

add in the relevant section (its pretty
self explanatory here)

Faven.odf	  1 fyard.odf				//Avenger class
		
Fpred.odf	  1 fyard.odf				// Predator class 
	
		
11 - And thats all she wrote - hope you guys enjoy?
