This update for the stock Federation cargo class gives it some nice new touches. For example, the odf has been edited and the ship now has a class name, which is the "Marco Polo" (similar in to effect of giving the Aerie class to a colony ship). She also comes with enhanced textures, featuring some very nice windows which light it up, but don't detract from its role of moving cargo from A to B. These changes have also been made for Borg textures so in actual fact, you could just do the textures as an upgrade, if you wanted to.
Anyhow, for those of you who wish to upgrade the stock game but can't find any decent cargo models, or simply just want to make this good one look a bit better, this is ideal for you. Moving cargo about has never looked so nice.
Marco Polo Class - Federation Cargo Ship: Hello: I am Chiletrek and this mod contains an ODF and texture update for the Federation's Cargo Ship (fcargo), with both normal and Borg assimilated files (all with new illuminations and windows) and a new Class name. Changes I made: 1) New ODF, changed the unitname and the scale to make it a bit bigger to better see the details (it fits in all trading stations so don't worry ;) ). 2) New textures with new windows, fixed existing ones, added Bussard Collectors and Federation Logos. 3) Since there is no changes in the model, there is no need for alterations in the gui_global, making this mod easier to install and un-install. Installation Instructions: 0) Check the files in this folder and compare with the same files existing in your ArmadaII folder, make a backup of your files because you'll need to overwrite existing files. 1) Make a backup of: fcargo.tga, fcargo_b.tga & fcargo.odf 2) Unzip the contents of this folder in a temporary location. 3) Copy the files: fcargo.tga and fcargo_b.tga and paste them to your Textures\RGB folder 4) Search and erase (previous you make a back-up) from the same folder: fcargo_1.tga, fcargo_2.tga, fcargo_b_1.tga & fcargo_b_2.tga This step is optional, if you do not replace the ODF, you should be able to keep playing online games (hopefully :-D ). 5) Finally, go to your odf\ships folder and copy from here to there the new fcargo.odf with an update of the ship with the new name Class. 6) You are ready to go, turn on your game and play as the Federation or against them and see the new cargo ship Marco Polo class with all its new details and have fun!!
