Due to changes in the galaxy, the Klingon Empire realised a re-assessment of the fleet was in order. The Cardassian uprising has caused an urgent call for more powerful vessels. So the Klingon armada is prepared to deal with all manners of threats; several changes have occured.

Powerful new ships, fast mining and battles galore await you as the Klingons test drive the latest inventions. The only question is whether the power will stabilise the Empire or give thought to expanding the Empire once again!

Today is a good day to die!


As I was looking through the mods I have done, I realised that I had never done anything to the Klingon side.

So Chancellor Martok does not come looking to give me a session with the pain sticks! I have given his Empire a makeover!

BACK STORY:

Due to changes in the galaxy, the Klingon Empire realised a re-assessment of the fleet was in order.
The Cardassian uprising has caused an urgent call for more powerful vessels.
So the Kligon armada is prepared to deal with all manners of threats; several changes have occured.

The latest SuQ'jagh Class starships have much larger crew complements and re-inforced hulls.
They now serve as the assault ships with original special weapon removed. Only 1 officer oversees the marine deployment.
Armed with a barrage of torpedoes that is closer to the original designs, they are deadly in combat.
Plus the new changes make the vessels capable of planetary bombardments too.

Koloth Class gets an upgrade with turret torpedoes. They cost less but are balanced in being very weak.
Make very many and hold off the enemy until the bigger vessels get there!

Also included is the handy Argokna Class, the Klingon version of the Nexum Class. It builds resources as well as stations.

Just like the Starfleet Nexum Class upgrade;
Freighters can mine all resources quickly - even latinum and can warp.

Qeh'Ral, Chava'Kal Class and Chuq'Beh Class have been replaced and are omitted from the new build lists.

Now, the Empire can move into the 25th Century and beyond with new vessels:
Che'var Class - a pure Klingon gunship - this will be built at the Imperial shipyard.
A fleet of them will be enough to subdue any attempt to threaten the Empire!

Ruv'LW Class - a light destroyer - these will be built at the standard shipyard. Deadly in swarms.

and

Nuq'daj Class - a stronger frigate - available at both! A perfect aid to any armada with good weapons and shields!


These bold vessels await to use the utmost Klingon diplomacy!


Martok's base can be built to oversee the battle and ensure the Empire's victory. His station processes metal.


Special weapons and long range weapons have been thinned out as the Klingons love a good close battle!
Get deep in the action and remember - Today is a good day to die!






To bring glory to your house, install by following these instructions!


++ You will be overwriting files relating to the Klingon fleet - back up your folders first in case you wish to uninstall!++



1) FOR THE SHIPS

Copy and paste contents of ODF ship overwrites folder to odf/ships.

For each ship place odf to odf/ship
SOD to SOD folder
bitmap to bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/Ship Images

Each additonal ship is in their own folder, just follow the above for EVERY ship.
**Do not install the contents of the folder 'Resources K' inside Argokna Class folder yet**



2) FOR THE TEXTURES

!!Locate TGA folder - copy all contents to Star Trek Armada II/Textures/RGB folder - these are the texture files!!






3) FOR THE RESOURCES FOR ARGOKNA CLASS

Locate 'Resources K' folder inside Argokna Class folder.

For each resource place odf to odf/station
SOD to SOD folder
bitmap to bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/ShipImages



4) FOR THE OVERWRITES

Copy and paste contents of ODF station overwrites folder to odf/station.
Copy and paste contents of ODF ship overwrites folder to odf/ships

++This will change the build lists and make new items appear for your cargo ships to trade!++


(If you play single player missions then manually add the ships to which yard you want, without removing any existing ships!)

i.e. kyard.odf
buildItem XX = "kchev"
buildItem XX = "knuq"
buildItem XX = "kruv"

XX being the next in number on build list



**If manually adding, only copy and paste TradingStation.odf to odf/stations - to get the new items to ferry round.**


++ You will be overwriting files relating to the Klingon fleet - back up your folders first in case you wish to uninstall!++
