This is a new mod from Archer Scott which makes several changes/additions to the Cardassians.
FOR CARDASSIA. In an attempt to orchestrate another bid to take over the galaxy, the Cardassian Union decide to make some choices about their current armada. Largely in part because there is a new leader Gul Skullard who wants Cardassia to be an Alpha Quadrant power. He'll stop at nothing to get his people back to power. The uprising he led was shortly after 8472 agents stole plans to their torpedo turrets and used the stolen designs to destroy several Cardassian colony worlds. With the government in disarray, Skullard swept to power and the fleet has been altered to his specifications with his quick mind and like of chess. He has disbanded the Detapa Council and elected a new ruling body - his close friends! The first casualty was the Sartan Class, to be replaced by a new fighter class. Skullard wanted to keep the Damar/Galor thing going on with the newer designs and so Fort Class is a mini-Keldon. His like of the Keldon Class is obvious - one is his flagship but this is bigger than standard Keldons, with upgrades. Plus the Keldons will be the only staple battleship apart from his own cruiser. Secondly the Galor Class is relegated to serve as the assault ship, replacing Janissary Class. Skullard, like most Cardassians, loves the Galor but it is getting older so it will continue to have an active role for now. Galors will be built from the normal shipyard. Vasad Class is upgraded with Shield Inversion Beams and require only a single officer as they are weak and merely meant to engage the hostiles until the Keldons arrive. Gul Vystan become the new tough cruiser, it is no longer used for secret meetings and so the cloak has been removed. Brinok Class is the staple covert ship and as such is slightly downgraded as a result - you don't want to loose your good ships if they get caught!!. Orbital miners are now quicker. And new items to trade are included too! The Dreadnought Missile is built out of the Advanced Shipyard but you need Level 3 Weapons Upgrade to get them. You do not need the super station. This saves on officers/resources - a cunning move by a leader who knows seconds count in getting your armada ready. To upgrade your Cardassian fleet please see below: You will be overwriting files so remember to back up your existing files or use the new names if you want old and new! 1) ODF - OVERWRITES. Place the ships folder into ArmadaII/odf/ships and say yes to all overwrites. Golden rule: Say yes! Place the stations folder into ArmadaII/odf/stations and say yes. **The overwritten stations will build all the new vessels and omit any unused ships/stations!** Special note: Janissary Class and the super station are not replaced they are simply omitted. 2) FORT CLASS.(TO REPLACE SARTAN CLASS) Simply place the files to overwrite the current cdestroy2. odf - odf/ships SOD - SOD folder bitmap - Bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/ShipImages 3) FORT CLASS (AS A SEPERATE SHIP) rename all files cdestroy3 and do as above. Locate a starbase or shipyard and place the following: buildItemXX = "cdestroy3" XX = next number in line. 3) GUL SKULLARD'S FLAGSHIP. odf - odf/ships SOD - SOD folder bitmap - Bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/ShipImages. 4) WIREFRAMES for all ships: Gul Skullard cskullw1 cardwireframe04 0 96 48 48 cskullw2 cardwireframe04 48 96 48 48 cskullw3 cardwireframe04 96 96 48 48 cskullw4 cardwireframe04 144 96 48 48 cskullw5 cardwireframe04 192 96 48 48 *** Fort Class (replacing Sartan Class) cdestroy2w1 cardwireframe04 0 96 48 48 cdestroy2w2 cardwireframe04 48 96 48 48 cdestroy2w3 cardwireframe04 96 96 48 48 cdestroy2w4 cardwireframe04 144 96 48 48 cdestroy2w5 cardwireframe04 192 96 48 48 Fort Class (as a seperate ship) cdestroy3w1 cardwireframe04 0 96 48 48 cdestroy3w2 cardwireframe04 48 96 48 48 cdestroy3w3 cardwireframe04 96 96 48 48 cdestroy3w4 cardwireframe04 144 96 48 48 cdestroy3w5 cardwireframe04 192 96 48 48 *** 5) TECH ENTRIES - Locate techtree folder, open tech1.tt: To replace Sartan Class copy and paste the following over the existing entry: cdestroy2.odf 1 cyard.odf // destroyer (fort class) To replace Dreadnought Missile requirements copy and paste this over the existing entry: csuper.odf 2 cupgrade.odf carpod21.odf // super (dreadnought missile) To have Fort Class as a seperate ship, add after last Cardie ship: cdestroy3.odf 1 cyard.odf // destroyer (fort class) Now add after the last cardie ship: cskull.odf 1 cturret.odf // battleship (keldon upgrade class) Save and close, now open full tech.tt and add after last Cardie ship cskull.odf 0 And if keeping Sartan Class add: cdestroy3.odf 0 That's it - now the galaxy could be yours under the rule of a new powerful leader! For the union!! CREDITS: Archerscott - all odf changes. Activision - all stock models and textures. I have simply tweaked what was in-game to give the Union a makeover!! There's a lot of overwrites but I thought newbies might like a practice of this - you can change the game so much!! **ATTENTION (mostly to newbies and those people who don't think!)** Although the stock models are not mine, please refrain from using any names/weapons I make up in your own mods. Ask if you wish to do this. Please do not create addons that you intend to post without asking me first too. Thank you. Manners make an amazing community!
