The year is 2390, the dominion have regrouped and have made a another lunge for the alpha quadrant. The federation this time are losing and with few ships, they have decided to call up some derelict golden-oldies! The Yorktown class has been refitted with a basic shield, improved weapons but a weaker hull. The primative systems have limited any real major improvements to the ship and the Federation lacks the time and resources into properly refitting the ship. The hull has rusted and decayed slightly weaking it. However, the federation are desperate and are willing to call up any ship possible in a desperate attempt to fight off the dominion.
Upon selecting this ship for battle I though it would be another slightly underpowered over worked rust bucket, with great textures from acid. But instead it seems that the losses in the latest dominion war have given the federation the inspiration to give this ship the ability to destroy a chris jones refit galaxy (using upgrades of course). Which is what has surprised me the most.
The ship comes with acidfluxxbass's latest attempts at refitting ships, the weapons are a good improvement, phasers and torpedoes pack a good punch on the enemy ships, which is more inline with the battlecruiser status he has given it.
There is a fade in the bump mapping on this relic, however that does not hurt the look of the ship, so all in all another good ship from Acid, keep them coming.
<--------------- Yorkman Class TNG Relic Refit ---------------> This mod will not overwrite any files. It is a series of files that when put in their espective folders, will make the ship playable as well as the stock Yorkman The Yorktown TNG Relic Refit has a long story. Since being decommissioned in the early years of the Federation, the Yorktown class ships have simply rusted up and decayed. However, due to the federations ship numbers being low in the second dominion war (non-canon), the federation have made a desperate attempt at replenishing some of the ships and giving them a quick refit before throwing them back into action. Due to the primitive systems on the old ships, the shields are very basic, the weapons have been improved slightly with the installation of the tng scout phasers which were compatible with the banks onboard. The engines have been tweaked to go faster and they have better sensors. The hull however, due to years of sitting in space and museums, has become slightly weaker. The Yorktown has been completely kitted out and has the ability to take on and defeat the best TOS ships. The ship has a nice bump map with new textures which give a detailed 'decayed' look. The ship has been tested on Aftermath and UU and should work on TB and the stock game. Installation: Copy files from folders to Legacy. Copy all *.dds in folder to: Legacy>Textures>DDS* Copy all *.m3d files in folder to: Legacy>m3d Copy all *.odf ships in folder to: Legacy>odf>ships The mod has been tested successfully on aftermath, trek battles and ultimate universe. demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E3eyFvtZ4RQ delete/rename the file db.pak in your game directory, unless you have Trek Battles/UUmod The retexture was done by myself (acidfluxxbass) using a stock Yorktown class starship.
