File Description
This is the Pulsar Class V1.2 and the Pulsar Variants V1.0. They are balanced according to stock and then have a bit of a boost. The Pulsar Class will "upgrade" to the Pulsar Weapons Variant and that will "upgrade" to the Pulsar X Class. Admirals log pics, buildbuttons and simple wireframes included. This upgrade system is a preview of what's to come in STA2: Beyond the Horizon.

I swear this ship looks a lot like the Luna every time I look at it, but it isn't quite "there".

Nevertheless, three advancements (well, actually two, as one is the orignal) of the Pulsar Class. Download, Upgrade & Enjoy ;)

Armada 2: Activison & Mad-Doc

INSTALLATION:
1) Unzip the contents of the file into a temporary directory.
2) Open the folder C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\Bitmaps\Admirals Log\Ship Images and copy fpulsar.bmp, fpulsarr.bmp, and fpulsarx.bmp there
3) Open the folder C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\ODF\Ships and copy fpulsar.odf, fpulsarr.odf, and fpulsarx.odf into it.
4) Open the folder C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\ODF\Special_weapons and copy fpulsarupg.odf and fpulsarrupg.odf there.
5) Open the folder C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\SOD and place the fpulsar.sod, fpulsarr.sod, and fpulsarx.sod file there.
6) Finally open C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\Textures\RGB and paste pulsar_1.tga, pulsar_2.tga, pulsar_3.tga, pulsar_4.tga, gbfpuslar.tga, and wirePulsar.tga there.
7) Next to add the ship to your game, open C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\ODF\Stations\fyard.odf with a text editor, scroll down until you see:

//Construction Parameters
buildItem0 = "fscout"
buildItem1 = "fdestroy2"
buildItem2 = "fdestroy"
buildItem3 = "fcolony"
buildItem4 = "fcruise1"
buildItem5 = "fcruise3"
buildItem6 = "fassault"
buildItem7 = "fcruise2"

add buildItem8 = "fpulsar" right below buildItem7 = "fcruise2"
then buildItem9 = "fpulsarr" below that if you want the refit immediatly bulidable
and buildItem10 = "fpulsarx" below that if you want the X refit immediatly buildable

8) Next to get the buildbuttons and wireframes to appear, open C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\Sprites\gui_global.spr, scroll down to the scetion titled Federation buildbuttons, add this line right below @reference=512:

b_fpulsar	gbfpulsar	0	0	64	64
b_fpulsarr	gbfpulsarr	0	0	64	64
b_fpulsarx	gbfpulsarx	0	0	64	64

b_fpulsarupg	gbfpulsarr	0	0	64	64
b_fpulsarrupg	gbfpulsarx	0	0	64	64


for the wireframes scroll down some more until you find # federation wire frames, with @reference=256 right below it, then add this below that line:

fpulsarw1			wirePulsar	256	256	256	256
fpulsarrw1			wirePulsarr	256	256	256	256
fpulsarxw1			wirePulsarx	256	256	256	256

9) The final step is to add the Pulsar and variants to your techtree. Open the C:\Activision\Star Trek Armada 2\techtrees\ folder and then open the techtree you want to add the ship too (I reccomend tech1.tt and fulltech.tt)

Anywhere in the file (tech1.tt or fulltech.tt) add these lines:

fpulsar.odf 	0 	//Pulsar Class
fpulsarr.odf	0	//Pulsar Class Weapons Refit
fpulsarx.odf	0	//Pulsar Class X Refit

fpulsarupg.odf	0	//Upgrades Pulsar to Pulsar Weapons Refit
fpulsarrupg.odf	0	//upgrades Pulsar Weapons Refit to Pulsar "X" Refit

10) If you followed these easy steps then you should now have the Pulsar class and it's variants in your Armada 2 game. Enjoy.
