File Description

This is a full race for the Federation that covers only the Motion Picture era. It's put together as a compilation of mod content from across the site, and it looks really good. All the necessary elements are included (at least, at a reviewer's first glance), and it seems to be pretty comprehensive.

Please note that if there are any credit issues, send an e-mail to either theStarfleetKid or TParis and we'll investigate. There were none that I could see, but this mod looks like the sort of thing the community desperately needs right about now.

Download this right now, and boldly go.

:cool:

Readme
I created this mod for several different reasons.  First, as a tribute to the Armada 2 community.  Without all of your work, this mod would never have been created in the first place.  Second, in remembrance of Ricardo Montalban (KHAAAAAN!!!!), and third, I think the TMP era was one of the greatest in the history of Star Trek.  I also made it in anticipation of the new Star Trek movie.  The goal of this mod was to take the best TMP work from the community and combine it to create the ultimate TMP race mod which I have called Starfleet.  I have created this mod in the exact image of the pre-existing federation, so I know the mod is balanced.  I have also tried to stick to canon material as much as possible, so all of the ships should be recognizable.  This is my first mod, and hopefully is the first of many more.  Once again, thank you to the Armada 2 community, this is for you!

19. Locate the file named "weapon.spr" found in the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/Sprites folder and open it (use notepad).

Search for where it says:

"@reference=128
@tmaterial=additive"

And underneath that add:

# Starfleet Phaser
tmpphaser	tmpphaser	0	0	32	32	@anim=tex4x4

# Starfleet Torpedo
tmptorp		tmptorp		0	0	32	32	@anim=tex4x4

# Probe
probe		probe		0	0	64	64	@anim=tex2x2


20. Open the file named "starfleet" and "races" found in the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/other folder and open them (use notepad).

At the bottom of races add

racex = "starfleet.odf" where x is the next consecutive number.  At the top, increase numberOfRaces by 1

Note: this next step is only necesarry if you have additional races added into your game

Change the instant action slot number in starfleet to the number it will be after your other races.  Be carefull, the game starts counting slots at 0 so it's probably 1 less than what you think it is.

That should do it!  You should now have Starfleet working in your game and you can now enjoy all the ships from the TMP era.


Final note: I have included the shelley and thufir class within the mod, but they are not usable in the mod as it is.  I intend to turn the Shelly into a carrier and the Thufir into an interdictor in further mods.  If, however, you still want to use them, open upt the tmpyard2.odf and delete the // infront of them (they have not been balanced)


Credits:

All SODs and associated textures are the work of the community:

Pizza the Hut for the oberth class, shelly class, federation class, centaur class, soyuz class, hyperion class, and construction ship

Terradyhne for the thufir class

Captain Fingers for the constellation class, sensor station,  remmlar array mining station, and k7 trading station.

Interstellar Machine for his tmp steamrunner which I renamed to armageddon class

Sherman2 for the cargo ship

Willsk8forfood15 for his construction ship which I turned into a freightor

shadow_from_afc for copernicus station, outposts pack, and columbia class (which is the repair ship)

Thermal_Nuclear_Chicken for polaris starbase ( I retextured so it would fit in)

icewolf132 for his turret pack

Almirant Alan for the base

Beginner for the tmp ship pack (where I pulled the excelsior, miranda, akula, and hermes)

ragnar603 for his orbital mining station

FahreS for the advanced shipyard

Transmission for the shipyard

Jetfreak for his phasers

KaBoom1701 for his genesis device

I have links and readmes for all this amazing work in the readme folder

Special Thanks to:

All who helped out my AIP problem on the forum thread (http://forums.filefront.com/st-a2-modding-editing/393824-aip-files-crashing.html)

The Armada 2 Community, without you, I would never have become interested in modding, and would never have compiled your amazing work into this mod.  Thanks!
