This is a Dominion Wars era (Deep Space Nine) Modification of SFC3 and PART ONE OF THE TNG Mega-Mod. Please be aware the file size is a bit over 100meg to accomodate the models. The damage textures alone are adding a lot of size to the mod.
THIS IS PART ONE OF THE SIX REQUIRED PARTS FOR THE FULL TNG MEGA MOD. YOU'LL ALSO NEED TO UPDATE TO 531.
This mod will work by itself without the other parts, but only with the original install of SFC3.. no patch. and you will be missing a lot.. GET ALL PARTS for full enjoyment..
The exe will automatically detect where on your PC SFC3 is installed. The following folders in assets\models will have changes to them. If you do not back them up you can still play the normal game, some models will be different.

Here's a synopsis of the mod.. (so far) WELCOME TO THE DOMINION WARS MOD FOR SFC: III - Put together by Chris Jones and based on the Capt. Ravenous/Chris Jones re-balancing mod released in Nov. 2002. Rebalance mod readme below... This original SFC3 re-balance mod was created solely for the purpose of bringing the look and feel of TNG Trek battles to your Starfleet Command game. Out of the box, SFC3 looks and feels like the old SFC games, but with TNG ships. This rebalancing mod brings you ships updated with actual starship data as a guide. All ships will come fully loaded already, its up to you to try different configurations. Will you sacrifice manueverability & speed for more weapons and better power? Or vice-versa? Will you take a weaker tractor for a better computer? The refit potential for ships remains endless, as before. This is how the game would have been out of the box had I been balancing the ships. This is what a TNG game should feel like. I hope you enjoy playing this as much as I do. Credit: Capt. Ravenous - main project type-guy leader, I guess Chris Jones - the guy that filled the gaps (there were a lot) Modellers - whose models made this mod more interesting, their read-me's are in their model folders. Taldren - for their great game engine and lousy ship balancing, both of which were necessary for the creation of this mod! Backup the following folders in assets\models of your game directory before install if you wish to keep original models of the ships involved. Akira BorgFrigate Excelsior Galaxy Intrepid Nebula RomulanDestroyer RomulanFrigate Sovereign Install this mod to your game directory - the exe should automatically detect that. You'll end up with some batch files in your game directory. 1. DomWars.bat 2. Orig.bat DomWars activates this mod in all its glory. Please note this mod will NOT work in the single player campaign. It is meant for single player skirmish, or multiplayer Gamespy or TCP/IP. There is not a D3 server for this mod. The Dominion Wars server online is a different mod that I helped with, and that Paladin put together. Here's a treat: The new Galaxy Class is a Knox1711 conversion/kitbash. He did several registries. One for the Enterprise D, the original USS Galaxy, the USS Odyssey that was destroyed when a Jem Hadar Fighter rammed it, and the Venture class Dominion War re-fit Galaxy. I have included batch files that will switch to which Galaxy hull you wish to play! They will be installed to your game directory.!! cool or what?... HAVE A BLAST! Some new textures will be installed. Orange smoke instead of purple is one.. Bigger and better explosion graphics - no shield graphics. (I like this one!) Orig.bat puts the game back to its original state before you intalled this. (if, of course, you backed up the models mentioned above) If you did not back up the models above, you can still play online on GSA and with your unmodded friends, and you will see new versions of the Galaxy, Nebula, Sovereign, Intrepid, and Akira while your friends will see the original game models. Eagle Eye made up a strings file that tells you the damage rating of each weapon in the refit screens of any ship. That is included here, in the both the mod and original files. I very much debated leaving the Feds, Klingons, and Roms unto themselves and just put the Dominion, Cardassians, Breen in the Borg slot; but did not like the idea of those 3 races having regenerative armour. I went with the following: Playable Race breakdown: Federation Alliance consists of: Federation Ferengi So'Na (included here only because the movie 'Insurrection' took place during the Dominion War.) Klingon and Romulan Empires are combined. Scimitar and Valdore Included. The Dominion Axis consists of: Dominion (with Maggot's Classic Battleship Model + 2 Variants) Cardassians Breen Borg are here because they come with the game. I did not use the Borg slot for the Dominion Axis as it would be unfair for them to have regenerating hulls. Although it never happened in any show, It might be interesting to see a Dominion Battleship take on a Borg Cube. New Models in this mod: USS Defiant Akira Excelsior Galaxy Intrepid (Not USS Voyager) Nebula Sovereign Steamrunner Ambassador Miranda Breen Battleship JemHadar (Fighter) DomBB (Dominion Battleship) DomHC (Dominion Heavy Cruiser - Conjectural) DomHCP (Dominion Heavy Cruiser w/ sensor pod - Conjectural) JemHadarLC (Light Cruiser Fighter - Conjectural) ((above 3 models kitbashed by Ancient Angel - readmes in the model folders)) Cardassian Galor Class Cardassian Keldon Class Cardassian Hutet Class Cardassian Starbase Cardassian Freighter DS9 (Terok Nor) So'Na Battleship Borg Assimilator Borg Tactical Cube New Audio install instructions: The Federation gets some new audio to make things seem more authentic, as well as the Dominion. There are new taunts! Gul Dukat, Legate Damar, Weyoun, Jem Hadar (Victory is Life!), and the Founder. To install the new audio... use Winzip with no compression. Open Winzip and Windows Explorer at the same time. Browse to your game directory and look for the 'Dominion Wars Audio' folder. Open up the folder inside there called SFCVoice. In Winzip open the file assets\sound\SFCVoice.zip. Drag all the sounds in the SFCVoice Folder into the zip file, making sure compression is set to none ('store' if using Winrar). Add the files. Do the same for the SFCSounds. Open up SFCSounds.zip in Winzip. This procedure will greatly enhance your Dominion Wars Experience.
