File Description

After a considerable testing phase followed by further development of the mod concept, Dan1025's Vulcan full race mod returns to us in the same detailed and awesome fashion it came originally. The new version promises new levels of thoroughness, logically.

Major changes from the version 1.0 release include the following:

- Readme now includes an instruction step detailing how to avoid the race number/instantActionSlot problem. - Freighters will now mine latinum. - Shipyard and Advanced Shipyard now have different build costs. - A cargo ship has been added. - A trading station has been added. - An upgrade research station has been added. - A colony ship (with pod) has been added. - Research station(s) will no longer have the spider box in is centre. - Pulse phaser texture now included. - Hardpoint error causing ships to be built outside of yards now fixed. - Special weapons now assigned to ships.

Download this one even if you have yet to discover the awesomeness of this mod.

:cool:

Installation Instructions - Due to the scale of this mod these are quite extensive, however they have been tested and they work, so I urge you to please follow them VERY carefully, if you install the mod by following these instructions you will have no problems. If you encounter a problem after installation I ask that you go through the instructions again before posting on the comments section of the mod, or the forum e.t.c. If, after you are sure you've followed the instructions you still encounter problems, feel free to contact me and I will do what I can to help :)

1. Place the sod files into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/SOD folder.

2. Place the AIP files into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/AI/AIPs folder.

3. Place all files found in the RGB folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/Textures/RGB folder.

4. Place the file in the misc folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/misc folder.

5. Place the file in the sprites folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/sprites folder.

6. Place the bitmap images found in the ShipImages folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/ShipImages folder.

7. Place the files found in the sounds/voiceover/ingame folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/sounds/voiceover/ingame folder. Before you ask no there are not a load of sound files missing, there are so few in the folder because the majority of the Vulcan units use various stock sounds that work well as Vulcan voices, so they should already be in your game.

8. Place the ODF files found in the odf/ships folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/ships folder.

9. Place the ODF files found in the odf/stations folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/stations folder.

10. Place the ODF files found in the phasers folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/weapons/phasers folder.

11. Place the ODF files found in the photons folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/weapons/photons folder.

12. Place the ODF files found in the pulse folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/weapons/pulse folder.

13. Place the ODF files found in the special_weapons folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/special_weapons folder.

14. Place the ODF files found in the other folder into the Activision/Star Trek Armada II/odf/other folder. - Note that if you have already modded other races into your game you will need to open the "races.odf" file from this mod and paste the vulcan line into your own version, ensuring to adjust the race numbers accordingly.

NB - Depending on where in your "races.odf" file the vulcans are, will need to open the "vulcan.odf" file (odf/others folder) and change the "instantActionSlot" value to one less than the vulcans race number in your "races.odf" file (odf/others folder). E.g if the vulcans are race8 in your races.odf file change the "instantActionSlot" value to 7. 

Note that if you have not altered your "races.odf" file at any time (you have not added or removed any races compared to the stock version of the game) you can disregard this, as the "instantActionSlot" value is already set to the right value for your game.

15. Place the "events" file in the mods main directory into your game directory Activision/Star Trek Armada II, ensuring to click yes when the computer asks you to replace the original file - Note that this will override the events file already in your game directory, if you have made any changes to the file that you do not wish to loose you will need to open the version included in the mod (using notepad) and copy/cut and paste all of the entries containing the word "vulcan" (can be found via the "find" function in notepad) into thier corresponding locations in your "events" file.

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

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:

# Vulcan Photon torpedo
wvphot 	wvphot 		0 	0 	32 	32	@anim=tex4x4

# Vulcan hunter torpedo
wvhuntorp 	wvhuntorp 	0 	0 	32 	32	 @anim=tex4x4

# Vulcan Probe
vprobe		vprobe		0	0	64	64	@anim=tex2x2

# Vulcan Phaser Flare
vflare		Xflarev		0	0	64	64	@anim=tex2x2

Now search for where it says:

"@reference= 256
@tmaterial=additive"

And underneath that add:

# Vulcan Phaser
vphaser		wvulphas		0	0	256	64	@anim=tex1x4

# Vulcan Pulse phaser
vpulse	wvpul			0	0	256	64	@anim=tex1x1

Save and close the file.

That should be all you need to get the Vulcans to work in your game :)

Thanks:

To all those who posted advice, support and comments on the mods forum thread (http://forums.filefront.com/st-a2-modding-editing/340724-vulcan-mod.html) - I cannot thank you all enough! Without all of you the mod would never have gotten this far :)

A special thanks to ameba/DarkEnergy, for being the only person to post a detailed bug list in the error thread. Without him testing the mod and reporting bugs along the way, there would be no 1.1 version at all.

A special thanks to the members of Starbase34 that took the time to test the mod even with the various projects they're working on.

A big thanks to Activision for releasing this game and giving us all something fun to mod and improve upon.

If you'd like to use the Vulcan race or a part of it in something you'd like to release, please check the credit section above to know who you need to contact or credit for whatever you want to use. For more details you can always email me at:

dan_ocean@hotmail.co.uk

Hope you enjoy the mod! :)
