This is a really nice Borg cube texture, featured in a PotD, that really looks alot better then the games origonal and is good for any modder or even the end user to use to make your borg cube look better.... nice job Thumbsup


This is a texture I made for the borg cube,took me a while to make but here it is for your
enjoyment.Feel free to use it in your mods as long as you give me credit.

See I made this because there wasnt a good borg cube texture that I liked so I started to make
my own and I like how it turned out.

Install: To replace the old borg texture, place the new bbattle texture in
C:\Program Files\Activision\Star Trek Armada II\Textures\RGB and you should now have the new
borg cube texture.Enyoy!!!

Never mind, I rebooted my computer and got it now.

Are there any Mods out there to delete my 2 posts?

(don't delete this)

hmmm...interesting. It crashed my computer. So I'm with predator

Could the huge 769 memory on the file cause it?

Is it compressed or uncompressed? I forgot how to check this.

I think its uncompressed, Im still not sure why the texture would crash the computer,maby its not good on older computer,did you do exactly what I said, now if you have a mod installed then you would need to replace that cube's texture,ex if the cube texture is called borg_cube then thats what you need to name my texture then replace,I hope this makes sence ;-)

Yes, I'm a modder. I've made 6 mods from srcatch(except sods and textures) into my game. I make wireframes and build buttons. I admit sods and textures are my weak spot.

I however have done something like what you did. I cut and pasted a common picture of a cube ship into the Cube texture. I got a weird reaction. Up close it looks just like the picture (cool). but as I move away it fades. When I get far enough away, the texture fades to black leaving only the lights(also a little cool) but it is unbalanced.

That's why I downloaded yours I figured yours would fix it.

I did some experiments after this happened. I opened yours,did select all, copy, then opened mine and hit paste, but yours was much bigger then mine(mine is the normal game size). I didn't save it because I want to keep mine(I'll back it up and try again).

To continue, I open the main assimilator texture and pasted yours over it. It looks cool. it gives the ship a darker look(more real). You should try it.

I've never messed with the compressed or uncompressed files. I seen it before but don't remember how to get to that point. I have pro paint 7.

Okay,I dont have the stock borg cube anymore but maby if you resize to make it smaller,the same size as the stock cube texture then it should work, I now remember cause if your replacing a texture with another then they need to be the same size, so just resize it to the sock size then replace the texture. 8)
