Well, another Concorde for Armada II, along with what looks to be a structure (don't know for sure if this is just in the screenshots or actually within the download). Still, it's nice to see something not related to Trek every once in a while, even if it is a plane from the 21st century Wink

2. Choose a construction ship, building the Hangar.
The Stock construction ship of the federation is fconst.odf. You can find it here:
"...\Activision\Star Trek Armada II\odf\ships"

-Open fconst.odf with your Windows Texteditor (Notepad) or another Programm like this.
Look for the text:

buildItem10 = "forbital"
buildItem11 = "ftrading"
buildItem12 = "fupgrade"

-Write under the text: buildItem13 = "hangar". Then it looks like this:


buildItem10 = "forbital"
buildItem11 = "ftrading"
buildItem12 = "fupgrade"
buildItem13 = "hangar"

-Attention: If you have already an entry with buildItem13,
you have to choose an other construction ship because
construction ships can only build 14 stations.

-Save the file and close it.
==========

3.-Choose the directory: "...\Activision\Star Trek Armada II\techtree".
Open the file "fulltech.tt" with the Windows Texteditor and search "fbattle.odf 0".
Write under this entry:

concorde.odf 0
concordeaf.odf 0
hangar.odf 0

Then it looks like this:

fbattle.odf 0
concorde.odf 0
concordeaf.odf 0
hangar.odf 0


-Save the file and close it.

-Do not change the directory but open the file "tech1.tt" with the Texteditor.
Search following Entry:

fbanshee.odf 1 fyard2.odf // frigate (banshee class)
fspecial.odf 2 fyard2.odf fresear2.odf // special (nebula class)

-Write under this entry:

concorde.odf 0
concordeaf.odf 0

Then it looks like this:

fbanshee.odf 1 fyard2.odf // frigate (banshee class)
fspecial.odf 2 fyard2.odf fresear2.odf // special (nebula class)
concorde.odf 0
concordeaf.odf 0

-Search in the same file the entry:

fedpod24.odf 1 fedpod14.odf // research pod (engine upgrade level 3)
fedpod25.odf 1 fedpod15.odf // research pod (life support upgrade level 3)

-Write under this entry:

hangar.odf 0

Then it looks like this:

fedpod24.odf 1 fedpod14.odf // research pod (engine upgrade level 3)
fedpod25.odf 1 fedpod15.odf // research pod (life support upgrade level 3)
hangar.odf 0


-Save the file and close it.

thats the reason why I want joelteon to load the file up again
#12 Freyr 2006-06-14 13:04
If you can email the original file to either the A2files team email address or my personal email address () then I will be happy to upload another copy for you.
#13 FahreS 2006-06-14 14:27
I sent the file to you and wish you luck ;-)

Thanks for your effort.
#14 Freyr 2006-06-15 13:43
I have just discovered I can't replace existing files (I don't have permissions to do that) so I have explained the situation to Jolt via IM and passed him the file. He is looking into it but he wasen't sure if he could replace it either. If he can't do it then he did say he would get a network admin to sort it out for you.


I like the assimilated one, Borg Air :D
#15 FahreS 2006-06-19 09:02

I hope that you can change the file soon :-)
