File Description

Even though saucer separation was discussed as early as in the original series (Kirk tells Scotty at one point to separate the saucer and head for home if the warp engines fail), it didn't come into its own as a concept until the Galaxy class was seen in action during "Encounter at Farpoint". The Galaxy EVO mod was one of those developments that came out of the events of "Generations" and the debut of the Prometheus class design. Suddenly people realized that having the civilian-filled saucer section limping away at impulse probably wasn't going to guarantee anyone's survival. And LC Amaral designed the Galaxy EVO in order to have warp in both sections of the ship, making the whole concept a little more easy to live with.

Dan1025 has done a remarkably good job with the original Bridge Commander model, porting it and reducing the poly count significantly while not taking anything away from the overall design. However, this mod requires the FleetOps patch version 1.2.5, which means that if you have any intentions of using this straight into stock, you'll have to figure out a few work-arounds. Moreover, despite the Titan class' eventual change in design to a ship more reminiscent of the Akira class than the Galaxy class (and its re-naming as the Luna class), this ship is referred to as the Titan class in the .ODF files. Simple enough to switch, if you care one way or another.

Everything you could want --a full set of build and weapons buttons, textures with and without registry, wireframes and admirals' log pics-- it's all here. Dan1025 has shown the importance of paying attention to the little details with this mod. The final product demonstrates that sort of quality through and through. Although I'm not a fan of the design, I do appreciate the work that went into this mod, and hopefully, a download will mean that you will, too.

:cool:

This is a poly reduced version of LC Amaral's Galaxy EVO mod that he released for Bridge Commander, I've lowered the poly count by about 3000 on all 3 sections, and I've resized the textures so they don't slow the game down. I've used the patch project to create the saucer seperation weapon for the ship, so there's no need to replace the stock galaxy seperation weapon. I've given the ship the class name of the Titan Class, since that was the name used on the original BC mod, it's easily changed in the ODF files if you want to call it something else.

Included in this mod are:

SOD files
Ship textures (with and without the registry)
Borg textures (with and without the registry)
Build buttons (for all 3 sections)
Special weapon buttons
Ship ODFs
Weapon ODFs
Special Weapon ODFs
Wireframes
Admirals Log pictures

10. Find the file named "fulltech.tt" in the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/techtree folder and open it (use notepad).

At the top of the file add:

fed_galevo.odf 0
fed_galevo_saucer.odf 0
fed_galevo_stardrv.odf 0
fgesep.odf 0
fgeint.odf 0

Save and close the file.

11. Open the name of whatever station you want to add the ships to as buildable units (if any).

Add at the bottom of the list of buildable items:

buildItemXX = "fed_galevo" (where XX is the number after the last one on the list).

If you also want to make the saucer and stardrive sections buildable, add at the bottom of the list of buildable items:

buildItemXX = "fed_galevo_saucer" (where XX is the number after the last one on the list).
buildItemXX = "fed_galevo_stardrv" (where XX is the number after the last one on the list).

Save and close the file.

That should be all you need to get the ship to work in your game :)
