Mod Name:  Honorverse CA Version 2.0

Hello all.  This is version 2 of my Honor Harrington Heavy Cruiser for Armada II.  I think this is a lot closer to my ideal model.  Still just using a texture from the game. 
 Don't think I'd be able to make a decent texture.  Anyway, I got rid of the extra space; it was so simple I literally slapped myself on the forehead.  Still crashes when 
it tries to load the admiral's log.  No clue why.  I've also made a LAC model, which I'm planning to release soon.  I've included the shipyard odf this time (fyard2.odf). 
 If you haven't added any other ships, then you could probably just copy it over your current one.  If you have added ships, then you know how to change it:

just add

buildItemX = "CaFinal" in the section with all the other ships the station builds

where X is the next sequential number.

Files Included:					Folder to extract to:
CaFinal.odf--------------------------------------------------------Armada II\odf\ships
fyard2.odf----------------------------------------------------------Armada II\odf\ships

CaFinal.tga--------------------------------------------------------Armada II\textures\RGB
CaFwireframe.tga-----------------------------------------------Armada II\textures\RGB

CaFinal.bmp------------------------------------------------------Armada II\bitmaps\Admiral's Log\shipImages

CaFinal.sod-------------------------------------------------------Armada II\sod

Ok, now the file editing everyone has to do (unless you have ArMod II):

Ok, open up the file "gui_global.spr" in the Sprites folder.

Next, find the section that looks like this:

b_fmining			gbfmining		0	0	64	64		
b_fsensor			gbfsensor		0	0	64	64		
b_fyard			gbfyard		0	0	64	64
b_fbase			gbfbase		0	0	64	64
b_fconst			gbfconst		0	0	64	64		
b_ffreight			gbffreight		0	0	64	64

This is the section that contains all the build buttons for the federation ships (note all the f's before names).
Somewhere in this section simply add:

b_CaFinal	CaFinal	0	0	64	64

This lets the game know that there is a build button for the ship, what the file name is, and the coordinates of the image (in the file).

Now, find the section that looks like this:


fbattlew1			fedwireframe01	0	0	48	48		
fbattlew2			fedwireframe01	48	0	48	48		
fbattlew3			fedwireframe01	96	0	48	48		
fbattlew4			fedwireframe01	144	0	48	48		
fbattlew5			fedwireframe01	192	0	48	48

fgalaxyw1			fedwireframe01	0	48	48	48		
fgalaxyw2			fedwireframe01	48	48	48	48		
fgalaxyw3			fedwireframe01	96	48	48	48		
fgalaxyw4			fedwireframe01	144	48	48	48		
fgalaxyw5			fedwireframe01	192	48	48	48	

and add this:

CaFinalw1	CaFwireframe	0	0	48	48
CaFinalw2	CaFwireframe	0	0	48	48
CaFinalw3	CaFwireframe	0	0	48	48
CaFinalw4	CaFwireframe	0	0	48	48
CaFinalw5	CaFwireframe	0	0	48	48

I must admit that I just did a simple wireframe.  It's just one picture repeated.  No individual system sections (kinda hard with this design anyway).

Anyway, this should be all you need to do, aside from changing the shipyard file if you need to.

Well, now you've got yourself a heavy cruiser from the Honor Harrington Universe.  Hope you enjoy it.
