Here are some replacement textures for stock Armada 2 planets. And if you keep in mind how ugly stock planets are these should be a welcome package. Smile
Please note that these textures are pretty heavy for Armada 2 standards, they need quite some memory (which could cause some trouble for older graphic cards).

Referred to the fact, that my school english is a little dusty you have to excuse potential mistakes in grammer and spelling....
But i think you will know what i mean;)

soooo.... it tooks a while, but now its complete.
These are the complete 6 planets I made for the original singleplayer campaign of Armada 2.

new:
- two additional planets to complete the stock ensemble

fixed:
- visible seams problem is now fixed, you will not or very hardly see any seams

known problems:
- the stock colonisation textures will not consort with the new M class earth texture, but if you ask me...who cares?;)
...and if you care you have to modifie these textures for your own.....


You can replace the original files or use these for what ever you want.
These are ultra high resolution textures.They will replace the original textures of class M, D, H, L, J, K planets in the game.

Content:
CLass M -Earth texture
Class D -Moon texture
Class H -Venus texture
Class L -Mars texture
Class K -Pluto texture
Class J -Jupiter texture

(all textures original NASA stuff)

There are two verions, an original and a downscaled. The difference is marginal. The downscaled textures looks just a little bit more washy.

Instal notes:
1. Just unrar (winrar required) the files in a new folder.
2. Every one of the 6 subfolders contains 2 textures in .tga (except the j class one with only one .tga file).
3. You should make an backup of the orinial files in the Star Trek Armada II/textures/RGB folder.
4. Replace the original .tga textures in the Star Trek Armada II/textures/RGB folder with these ones. Press Yes if asked to overwrite existing files.
5. Start the game and look if you like it.

Hello:

The pack looks very good, I think that the Class-K planets never looked better

Nice job Rock

excellent. a must add to Midnight universe and stock. What eve you did to hide the seems, it worked. Now we just need a fix or revise of MAP's cloud textures.

I think the clouds from midnight universe for the stock planets are the same as these from the upgrade project. They look much better than the stock clouds, but the guys did not pay any attention to the seams. I fixed this problem by modifie the clouds .tga with photoshop. I would upload them if requestet?
