This is my Orbital Defence Platforms mod for the Cardassians,
Klingons, Federation, and Romulans in the stock Armada 2.

Have you ever been frustrated by enemies constantly raiding 
outlying Orbital Processing Facilities (lets call them OPFs 
from now on, okay?) and Colonies? Well, it bothered the hell 
out of me so I created this mod. It replaces the OPF with what 
I call Orbital Defence Platforms that both collect metal and 
are well armed/shielded for self defence. They also can detect
cloaked ships and bombard planets (just in case you're feeling
particularly vindictive).

The odfs, SODs, buildbuttons, and Admiral's Log pics use the 
names of the original OPFs so when you install the mod, they 
will be overwritten. BACK THEM UP BEFORE INSTALLATION. This 
was done so that the AI can use them ingame without me editing
the AI files (a messy process for me, I can assure you).

now, the fun part, installation ;)

to install:
--put the contents of the odf folder into your odf/stations 
--put the contents of the SOD folder into the SOD folder.
--put the gui_global file into the sprites folder.
--put the contents of the textures folder into textures/RGB 
--put the contents of the bitmaps folder into the bitmaps/
Admiral's Log/shipImages folder.

overwrite files as neccessary AFTER backing the originals up 
(in case you missed it above)

Well, you're done. Reading after this section is up to you as
it contains credits, bug info (none by the way), my email,
and the legal stuff/warnings section. It is not essential to
the installation of this mod--it would merely be polite to 
read it as I went through the trouble to write it.

********************** Misc. Information *********************
This mod has been tested in Armada with the 1.1 with no bugs. 
The only 'bug' is the lack of a wireframe for the Regula class
model so I used the original OPF wireframe for it.

--Me (Captain Steve)- edited odfs and gui_global files. 
Compiled necessary files.
--Major A Payne for kitbashing the Romulan and Cardassian models, 
making the wireframes, and Admiral's Log pics.(All sourced 
from his mod Borg Incursion 2)
--Cardassian starbase originally done by Deemon as Deep Space 9.
--Captain Fingers for his excellent Regula class outpost model 
 found at AFC.
--Original idea..hmm...I really think about this one...I guess
the original inspiration would be the Orbital Starbase that 
takes the Federation Stardock and does the same thing that 
I've done in this mod to it. That's by Michael Raab so I guess
the credit goes to him (even though this mod is in no related 
to his).

The Legal Stuff and Misc. Warnings
This mod is in no way affiliated with Activision or Paramount, 
so don't call them for support if this screws up your computer.
After all, if you missed the BACKUP ALL FILES notice TWICE 
above it's not my problem or theirs, just yours.

If you don't like it or have any suggestions, complaints, etc.
contact me at SAFNJ@aol.com as I'm always open to them. If 
you'd like to use this in your mod, let me know, credit me and
the creators of the models. They are listed above.
