Second Stargate Pack [b]More Information about the Modification[/b] [b]Please note that the following Review / Description contains spoilers for Stargate SG - 1 Season 9 and 10, and Stargate Atlantis Season 2 and 3.[/b] [u][b]Tau'ri[/b][/u] There is one ship included in this pack, but however also includes hardpoints for the other earth ships from the first stargate pack. [b]F302[/b] - The textures have been replaced with newer versions that are lighter and more detailed. There appear to be two different versions of the F-302 one that has been seen defending earth in SG-1 Season 7 episode Lost City Part 2 and another one that has been launched from the capital vessels. Highly recommended in dog fights against the Wraith Dart or Death Gliders. Just to note this ship is very vulnerable to NanoFX explosions and will probably not survive a close explosion. [u][b]Goa'uld[/b][/u] The second stargate pack contains retextures of the Needle Treader, Ha'tak and Goa'uld starbase. This pack also includes one more new vessel Apophis's Flagship. [b]Needle Threader[/b] - a ship that was seen in Stargate SG - 1, Season 3 episode "In To The Fire". This ship is similar to that of a Ancient / Alterran puddle jumper (although very different shape), where it was designed to go through the stargate. The Needle Threader is more manuverable than that of a standard death glider and just as powerful. This ship is more than a match for the wraith dart and possibly the F302, although the latter is more difficult to fight against (depending on who gets the first shot). There is a slight improvement to the cockpit, but other than that this ship is still the same. [b]Ha'tak (all versions)[/b] - Since the last stargate pack, this ship has been given a brand new texture, including ore realistic textures that make the ha'tak look more like the shows version . The Replicator version of this ship has been made more powerful than before as it was too easy to take damage. There are four versions included in this mod, the Standard Goa'uld Ha'tak, a refit Ha'tak, Anubis' Ha'tak (The one that destroyed an Asgard Beliskner in "Revelations" (Season 5) and a Replicator controlled Ha'tak as seen in "The Reckoning Parts I and II" (Season 8 - SG - 1). All three of the ships are identical other than their weapons and shields. The first type of ha'tak is the standard early Goa'uld version, this one is weaker than that of the X303 and BC 303. This ship can also destroy several small Star Trek vessels but against more manuverable ships such as a bird of prey or defiant it might not be able to hit it a long range. The second type of Ha'tak is a refit version that might have been used within the later seasons of SG-1 under the ranks of the Free Jaffa, this ship would be more powerful than the first but in a one on one fight with the earth ships it may very well struggle. The third type of Ha'tak, Anubis Ha'tak is more powerful than the first and can take on the X303 or BC 303 although will take damage from it and can possibly take on multiple "heavy" star trek ships (i.e, Galaxies, Sovereigns, etc). Anubis' Hat'ak has been balanced against the Asgard Beliskner meaning it should be able to take it out. The forth type of Ha'tak is the Replicator Controlled Ha'tak, this ship is a lot more powerful and can easily destroy most ships fairly quickly. This ship can possibly take on 4 - 7 standard Ha'taks or more and win. This ship would also easily destroy most Star Trek ships with the exception of a Borg Cube which will more than likely destroy the Ha'tak. [b]Goa'uld Starbase[/b] - Here is the starbase of the Goa'uld as seen in Stargate SG -1 Season 5 episodes "Summit" and "Last Stand", this base is very powerful, this ship can easily take on a medium - large fleet of Ha'taks and even a couple of Asgard ships. This base is highly detailed and well made, however just as a note on slower computers when taking damage this may cause some slow downs to occur in game. This has been retextured for the second stargate pack and adds some improvements to the outsite (i.e. looks a bit better [b]Apophis's Flagship[/b] - Here is the powerful flagship of Apophis stole from Sokar, this ship is far more powerful than that of the ha'taks, the Asgard Beliskner and possibly the earth ships (BC304s). This ship is more than a match for multiple Ha'tak vessels (with the exception of the replicator version), multiple Tau'ri ships, but will struggle against Anubis mothership for firepower. This ship is no match for any of the ships that are far more powerful. [b][u]Asgard[/u][/b] Here is the Asgard ships including two ships, a retexture of the Daniel Jackson (Science Vessel) and the Beliskner (including refit). Both of these ships now include a cloaking device as this has been mentioned in the Stargate SG-1 show. [b]Beliskner[/b] - This is the first asgard vessel seen in stargate SG - 1, as seen in the Season 2 episode "Thor's Chariot". This ship is fairly powerful as a Cruiser level ship as it will easily destroy the early ha'taks while taking minor damage. However against more powerful ha'taks such as Anubis's upgraded versions the Beliskner will in all probability lose fairly quickly. There is also a replicator version of this ship which is capable of taking on at least 5 standard versions of this ship. This ship has been well made and is highly detailed. [b]Beliskner Refit[/b] - This ship is similar to that of the Beliskner, but this ship has a slightly different model to match the ship that was seen in the Stargate SG - 1 episode "Revelations" in season 5. The hardpoints are identical to that of the previous version, this ship is more blueish that that of the original. This ship has been well made and is highly detailed. [b]Daniel Jackson[/b] - This ship has had a slight retexture since the first stargate pack to improve its appearance to make it more like the show itself. This ship was first seen in the SG-1 episode "New Order". However since this ship is only a science vessel, it won't be as powerful as the main warships within the Asgard Fleet. Saying that this ship is still more than a match for the Goa'uld Ha'tak vessels, although may lose against Anubis's Ha'tak or anything Higher. [u][b]Alteran / Ancient[/b][/u] There are two Alteran vessels present in this pack, one is an update to the Puddle Jumper and the other is an Aurora class warship (including a fully powered one and an "orion" version) [b]Puddle Jumper[/b] - This ship is the ship as seen in Stargate Atlantis and three episodes of SG - 1 in Season 8. This ship is highly manuverable (in fact very similar to the show) and can easily avoid shots from the Ha'taks weapons at longer ranges but will get hit close up. The puddle jumper is only armed with 36 Drones which are all very powerful (even more so if you have Future Technologies). The drone weapons have been weakened due to the drones being too powerful. With this upgrade the puddle jumper can now fire three drones at a time (as seen in the very first episode of SGA). The Puddle Jumper is more than a match for the wraith dart or even six. Although this may seem an uber ship, it is far from it as its hull is very weak in comparison to its weapons as any ship armed with phasers or a few unlucky hits from pulse phasers, distruptors or staff weapons can easily damage its hull. This ship also includes a MVAM mode where the weapons and engines pods are either inside or outside the ship. The weapons can only be fired when they are outside of the Puddle Jumper itself. This ship has also been rescaled and made more accurate to the show. [b]Aurora Class Warship - Fully Operational[/b] - Here is prossibly one of the most powerful ships in the stargate universe (after the Alteran City Ship - Atlantis, and possibly the ori cruiser). This ship can fire lots of drones in rapid succesion, destroying most vessels relatively quickly including an ori cruiser. This ship has been seen in Stargate Atlantis although the "Fully Operational" version has not been seen yet. The Ori Cruiser may be able to destroy this ship with its "Main Weapon", although its really dependant on who gets the first shot. [b]Aurora Class Warship - "Orion"[/b] - Here is the Aurora Class warship as seen in SG - Atlantis Season 2 episodes "Inferno" and "Allies" as well as Season 3 episode "No Mans Land". This ship is a damaged version of the Aurora class and does not have enough power to power both the weapons and the shields at the same time (although its possible to have both, just not at full levels). The "Orion" as named by Lt. Colonel John Sheppard, is capable of firing the same weapons as the fully powered version but depending on who it is facing against it may not have a chance to fire a second batch. [u][b]Wraith[/b][/u] [b]Wraith Dart[/b] - This ship has been retextured completely and now also includes the sound of the wraith dart which will add something to make it more like the show itself. This ship is fast and is capable of taking on either the F-302 or the Puddle Jumper but this does not mean that it will win. If the Dart gets the first shot then it may have a chance against a F - 302. [u][b]Ori[/b][/u] There is one ship and one supergate included within this pack. [b]Ori Supergate[/b] - There are two versions of this one active and one in-active. These do not do much, although it does have MVAM capability to activate the gate. The supergate now with the shuttle launching script is capable of launching upto four ori cruisers that have to be launched individually (as launching all four would cause them to crash into one another) [b]Ori Warship[/b] - This is the true Uber ship, as seen in the Stargate SG - 1 episode camelot (the season 9 finale). This ship is practically a god ship. The Ori main weapon can easily destroy a ha'tak vessel in one shot most of the time and tau'ri vessels in two or three shots. To even have a chance against this god ship you will need a [b]Very[/b] large fleet of ships as this ship will destroy most of them with one shot. The secondary weapons although not as powerful as the main cannon can easily destroy mainly types of ships fairly easily with a few shots (maybe 3-10). The only ship that is capable of even having a chance against this ship is the Fully powered Alteran / Ancient Aurora Class warship (not the orion though). All of these ships can be used to re-inact scenes against within Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. This modification pack is highly recommended to any Stargate Fan as it will add a new part to bridge commander.
