File Description

An intresting mod by Twich, this is the Dominion Deathstar. This was made at request for those of you who are Dominion fanatics. (you know who you are)

This mod requires the Dominion Ultmate mod to properly run, but that can be changed with .odf editing.

"I felt a disturbance in the force, as if thousands of Bajorans were all secreaming but instantly silenced."

Dominion Deathstar

With all the small-scale ships in A2 I thought it was a good idea to make something large for 
each race. This is a more advanced mod in that some file editing is needed.  To include the 
needed files is pointless since most folks have other stuff in these files that they've modded 
already. They can be edited as below using Notepad or Wordpad.

I have already done Deathstars for the 6 standard races and this is a request for Dom fans. 

The Deathstars have Borg battleship physics and can attack planets. Being that a sphere is the
perfect shape for space- always having the same frontal area no matter which way it faces- I
chose it keeping in mind the old Star Wars concept. Planetoid-sized ships are easy to find in 
the game and don't get lost in the clutter.

Being "shipyard//constructionrig" class they will not accept repair commands and will usually 
become uncontrollable going in circles. In the previous version you had to beam aboard more crew.
In this version I made them "facilities" so they can simply recrew like stations with a button 
when used by the player. If the AI takes one over they attempt to tell it to repair and it will 
usually just go in circles but will still defend itself.  Unfortunately the AI is not smart 
enough to simply recrew. The ability to construct a repair ship helps things but repair ships 
can't remove mines.

The Deathstar keeps the ships it builds close via the alwaysrecomputerallypoint command 
instead of them returning to base.

The Dominion Deathstar has weapons and a build list keeping with the Dominion Ultimate mod by
STGamerNew2002/STgamer2003. The Deathstar's build list has a repair vessel, assault ship, 
battleship2, construction ship, scout and cruiser. The AI will build the battleship mostly.

Technically you need the Dominion Ultimate mod for the Dom Deathstar to work.  If you
edit the odf with standard in-game weapons and other build items you can use the sod and tga 
and have the thing built by any race.  I'm including the weapons+ one special weapon- so go 
from there.

Here's what the files are.  Odfs to odf/ships, weapons-phaser-photon-pulse, special weapons, 
sod to /sod, tga to textures/rgb.

ODF/ships
domstar.odf

ODF/special weapons
dgpolerond.odf
dpolerond.odf

ODF/weapons/phasers
zbphas.odf
zbphaso.odf

ODF/weapons/photons
zbphot.odf
zphotono.odf

ODF/weapons/pulse
zdpulse.odf
zdpulseo.odf

SOD
domstar.sod

TEXTURES/RGB
ddeaths.tga - 512 x 256 size

Bitmaps/admiralslog/shipimages
domstar.bmp

To make it build you'll have to add it to the Dom yard2 build list as the next build item with
the next sequential number.

The ship's build button is that of the Borg Sphere. To make the build button work open 
gui_global.spr in the Sprites folder and edit with Notepad or Wordpad at trhe end of the Dominion
section.

@reference=64
@tmaterial=default

b_domstar                        gbbcruise1              0       0       64      64

For the wireframe to show the Borg Sphere as the Deathstar's you must edit the giu_global.spr 
files in the Sprites folder.  Below is an example to use the sphere wireframe for the Domstar.  
Just put it at the end of the Dom ships.    

bdomstarw1			borgwireframe01	0	96	48	48		
bdomstarw2			borgwireframe01	48	96	48	48		
bdomstarw3			borgwireframe01	96	96	48	48		
bdomstarw4			borgwireframe01	144	96	48	48		
bdomstarw5			borgwireframe01	192	96	48	48

Open your tech1.tt and any other .tt files like earlytech.tt and so on and add the ship at the 
end of the race's ships:

dweyoun.odf 2 dyard2.odf dresear2.odf             // hero ship(weyoun's battleship)
domstar.odf 2 dyard.odf dyard2.odf

If you want the AI to build the ship you must edit the 5 .AIP files like:
Dominion_build_list.aip, Dominion_defensive_list.aip, Dominion_endgame_list.aip, 
Dominion_instant_action_build_list.aip & Dominion_offensive_list.aip.

// Phase III. Advanced Shipyard
	//

	"dyard2",	1,0, -1,  3,	// advanced shipyard
	"dcruise1",	2,0, -1, -3,	// 
	"dcruise2", 2,0, -1, -3,	// 
	"dbattle",	3,0, -1, -3,	// 
	"dbattle",	3,0, -1, -4,	//  
	"dorbital",	1,0,  2,  0,	// third orbital processing facility
	"dmining",	1,3,  2,  0,	// third mining station
	"dompod2",  1,0, -1,  0,    // 
	"dbattle",	3,0, -1, -4,	// 
        "domstar",      1,0, -1,  0,	// Deathstar (Battleship)

Be sure to back up any files you edit 1st!!  Remove the above files to delete the mod.
Make any changes you want and use them in any way you want- I don't care about credit- just 
have fun!
