File Description

Now these are interesting ships, these are the Imperial Courier and Trader from the old DOS game Frontier Elite II.SquireJames was going to release these in our Christmas Contest but since it's only for stations, he has kindly released them for general use. These ships remind me of some of the fighters from Star Wars (Shows you how much I know about Star Wars :p) with the Courier reminding my of the Naboo Fighter a bit.

The Quality of these ships is very very good and they look excellent, and look alot better than their original counterparts in the original game :). These ships are accompanied by their own Beam Weapons, Sound effects and physics file so you are getting quite a package with these ships.. A very good mod, I would definitely recommend these!

:D

Imperial Heavy Fighters
************************

In the ELITE/Frontier Elite II Universe, these are the two premier ships of the Imperial Navy, the Imperial Courier and the larger Imperial Trader. I have included weaponry for both ships, fitting what they would carry in military service rather than the civilian models in Frontier. The Courier mounts a 20 MegaWatt Beam Laser, and the larger Trader carries the formidable 100 MegaWatt Beam Laser.

To Install, copy all files from their respective folders into the same folders in your armada 2 directory. Then, add the following lines to the indicated .spr files. You can then add Icourier.odf and Itrader.odf to whatever edit menu, shipyard etc you wish, and any techtree you see fit.

To use the alternative textures for the two ships, simply rename one of the alternates to simply ImpCourier.tga or ImpTrader.tga . 

Texture Descriptions:-

ImpCourier.tga - default - Unmarked Heavy Fighter Model of the 13th Imperial Household Dragoons "The Four Leaf Clovers"
ImpCourierB.tga - alternative - ELINT Model Imperial Courier of the 88th Imperial Carabiners "The Desert Rats" 
ImpTrader.tga - default - Unmarked Heavy Fighter Model of the 7th Imperial Household Dragoons "The Lucky Seventh"

Permissions:-

All work included has been made by me, with the exception of the Beam Laser sound which is from Frontier First Encounters (a game long since made shareware, and the sound was extracted and hosted by George Hooper). In order to use these ships in your mod, in whole or in part, email me at squirejames_5@hotmail.com, and we can discuss the matter.
