File Description

Next on the menu, Tain_Enabran (heavycruiser1701) brings us a texture pack for the Borg. The new textures replace the textures for the Assimilator, Cube, Colony Ship, Sphere, Fusion Cube, Tactical Cube and Tactical Fusion Cube. Some scripting changes are also included in the mod, the changes are to the odfs of the Assimilator and the Cubes. The Assimilator now has a transwarp device and it has more special weapon energy, also the auto-assimilator weapon has been fitted on all versions of Cubes (normal, fusion and tactical).

In order to get these to work you must remove some of the original .tga files (consult readme for guidelines on how to do so), however the original files are included in rar format in this mod in case you have a change of heart and wish to revert to them.

As for the textures themselves, they are not bad. The Cube is a much better improvement over the stock although at times it is hard to distinguish the shape of the cube due to the textures. The Tactical Cube is probably the best of the bunch, the tactical armour is reminiscent of Starfleet hull armour but it looks good nonetheless. The Sphere and Assimilator are good, with the Sphere appearing more :borg:-ish while the Assimilator doesn't look any bit like a Borg hull composition but whatever floats your boat I guess ;)

In it's entirety it is good, a lot better than the stock but not as good as some Borg retextures out there. Still gets a :thumbsup:

				NEW BORG SHIPS TEXTURE FOR ARMADA 2
	         		___________________________________

These are new textures for Borg sphere, Borg colony ship, Borg assimilator, Borg cube, Borg tactical cube,
Borg fusion cube and Borg tactical fusion cube. The assimilator is now equiped with a transwarp device and
her special energy is increased. Auto-assimilator is now added on all cubes. These are more realistic than
the originals.



<<<Textures>>>

IMPORTANT!!! You must remove a lot of .tga files: it's the most difficult and boring thing to do in
this mod but it's necessary to see this working!

-> search for the following files and remove them from your RGB folder:

Bcruise1_1.tga
Bcruise1_2.tga
bcruise1bump.tga

-> remove the following files from your ShipImages folder:

-> put the new files in the correct folder:

bbattle2.bmp--> ShipImages
bbattle3.bmp--> ShipImages

-> replace older files by these:

bbattle4.odf--> Ships


IMPORTANT!!! I have made a back up of the original files so do not delete this mod before saving the
these files!!!
