This (without any screenshots) is a special weapon for worker bee's which is capable of destroying smaller vessels, mining stations and probably freighters. Though nothing "spectacular" this is a neat little MOD that one would think to bring a little more fun to the battlefield.


Worker Bees Special Weapon
By: Wolf01

Hi all! It's been a while since I last produced a Special Weapon,
and when I did, it was under the name Wraith166. However, I hope
you will enjoy this Special Weapon, as it should make your game
more... interesting. This special weapon enables the Construction
Ships of all races (And the Defender for Species 8472.) to launch
all of their Worker Bees to attack an enemy ship, Cardassian Drone
style. While this only does minor damage-VERY minor-it still gives
the old Fleet workhorse a bit of a sting to defend itself, and in
a group, this weapon can disable and even destroy Destroyer Class
vessels, and destroy mining stations too.

I have included a series of pre-made ODFs for any new modders out
there, to save them some work, or for those of you who are just
plain lazy (^_^). If you wish to use this weapon in a mod of your
own, feel free to do so, but please give credit where credit is due.

P.S.: No, sadly, I haven't included any buttons, as I don't know how
to make them. I probably won't include buttons in any of my mods,
unless it is one that has been done and I renamed it, or I learn how
to make them.

NOTE: The Construction Ship ODF files WILL replace your current
ones, so unless you are willing to sacrifice your old Construction
Ship(s), I suggest backing up your current Construction Ship ODFs
in another file in your PC.

Extract all the files to the specified places in the
Armada II Directory, then add all of the following
lines to the specified locations in the fulltech and
tech1 techtree folders.

Extract the following files to the specified locations

8472bees.odf = odf\special_weapons
bbees.odf = odf\special_weapons
cbees.odf = oodf\special_weapons
fbees.odf = odf\special_weapons
kbees.odf = oodf\special_weapons
rbees.odf = odf\special_weapons
8472_defender.odf = odf\ships
bconst.odf = odf\ships
cconst.odf = odf\ships
fconst.odf = odf\ships
kconst.odf = odf\ships
rconst.odf = odf\ships

Place these lines in the fulltech and tech1 techtree folders
under the Federation, Klingon, Borg, Romulan, Cardassian, and
Species 8472 Ships section

fconst.odf 0
kconst.odf 0
bconst.odf 0
rconst.odf 0
cconst.odf 0
8472_defender.odf 0

Next, place these lines in the fulltech and tech1 techtree folders
under the Federation, Klingon, Borg, Romulan, Cardassian, and
Species 8472 Special Weapons section

fbees.odf 0
kbees.odf 0
bbees.odf 0
rbees.odf 0
cbees.odf 0
8472bees.odf 0

Finally, place these lines in the gui_global Sprites folder, under the line
where it says: b_ghologen. This is the Special Weapons section.

I think this is quite an original mod!. No one ever think in arm the work bees, they can make things, so they can help un-make enemy stuff :-)

Keep it up! ( I was trying to make something like this for 8472, but I wanted a new ship :-D :D ). I'm looking forward to see more of this!

Thanks. I seem to enjoy doing Special Weapons more than ships, as it is less work, and results in more fun. Hey all, please do post responses on how much you like (Or dislike) this one. I didn't get any feedback on my last few mods, and it sorta left me hanging for a while. BTW, I apologize for the lack of screenshots, but I never did get a very angle and all. I like screenshots that really show off the weapon, and I couldn't get any good ones. However, if you guys can get a couple, then feel free to submit them.

Could the Filefront staff do me on little tiny favour? Could you PLEASE get my name RIGHT? it is NOT Wrath_166, it is WRAITH_166. W-R-A-I-T-H, not

W-R-A-T-H, though I do see the similarity. Thank you.

Ok, seeing as you've got yourself a new name here, I changed the developer name to that also ;-) - All files you've submitted (along with files you are to submit) will now be addressed under "Wolf01"

Thank you kindly mate. *elaborate little bow*

great mod, have been working on someting simmilar for a while using various fighter models and the cardassian drone weapon - biggest problem is turning off the damage nodes!

really good idea though and well put together :-)

Thanks. I got the idea from watching Gundam SEED, believe it or not. Personally, arming the unarmed ships with a little 'surprise' always makes me smile while I'm working on that sort of mod. I try and picture all of the opponent's faces as they suddenly realize their Destroyer was just crippled by a Construction ship or Cargo vessel. lol. I apologize if I ended up stealing anyone's thunder by doing this mod, as that was not my intention. Feel free to use it as a basis for your mod, and then improve upon it, if you like; all I ask is that you give credit where it is due.
