The Federation found a derelict 8472 Defender and took it back to Starfleet HQ. They decided to have it made into one of thier own ships. The Troop Class was born and now they have a more powerful marine carrier to charge the enemy!


This is for a modification to the Species 8472 defender.

The Federation found a derelict 8472 Defender and took it back to Starfleet HQ. They decided to have it made into one of
thier own ships. Troop Class was born and now they have a more powerful marine carrier to charge the enemy!

It carries more marines and had stronger shields and because it can attack planets it is more flexible.

The Troop Class supports the assault.odf so it will be able to warp and attack transport! The defender cannot build
anything as it is no longer a construction vessel.

In groups they are a force to be reckoned with!!


Install instructions:

For the ship place all the files in the right folder.
TGAs into ArmadaII/Textures/RGB
SOD file into ArmadaII/Sod
ODF file into ArmadaII/odf/ships
bitmap picture into ArmadaII/bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/ShipImages



Find which shipyard you want to build the ship at and add:

XX = next number in sequence

buildItemXX = "fwar"



Tech Trees now, first full tech add:

fwar.odf 0


Then tech1: fill XXX with what base or yard you wish to build them from!

fwar.odf 1 fXXX.odf // Troop Class



Open up sprites and find gui_global and under the last Fed ships add:

b_fwar gbfwar 0 0 64 64

Then scroll down for the wireframes:

fwarw1 8472wireframe02 0 144 48 48
fwarw2 8472wireframe02 48 144 48 48
fminw3 8472wireframe02 96 144 48 48
fminw4 8472wireframe02 144 144 48 48
fminw5 8472wireframe02 192 144 48 48


Wireframes will be the 8472 ship layout. Build button will appear blank on the build list!


Full credit to the original creators of the 8472 defender at Activision.
I've simply allowed the Federation to use them in their own way! Viva Federation!

It looks pretty good(for a common ship). Nice job for a FIRST attempt moddng(if this is what it suppose to be). :P

I doubt the Fed's could recreate the bioships.

Never underestimate what Starfleet engineers can copy! Troop Class are based on what was found in the bioship - not exactly copied. They are a new breed of starship. :-)


They can take on enemy bases and armadas and should take quite a beating before being all destroyed.


Yes it is my first true ship attempt and I love marines and taking over ships and planets!! 8)

Note to creater: Use baseName = "8472_defender" this will eliminate the need to include sod, or sprite modifications, and textures, unless you edited the model in which case, nvm

Nice Job :thumbsup:
