Nihydron Warship Nihydron Warship

dan1025, 2008-12-01

The Nihydron were among the coalition of allies brought together by the terror of the Krenim timeship in "Year of Hell" (VOY). Not a pretty ship, but certainly distinct, this Nihydron warship is one of many such designs first seen in the Delta Quadrant. Dan1025 has done a wonderful job bringing this ship over from Bridge Commander, in poly-reduced and fully detailed form.

This mod includes all the usuals, including Borg textures, a new phaser texture, and the buildbuttons, wireframes, and admirals' log pic.

Just one more essential for the serious A2 modder brought to you by Dan1025. Definitely download worthy.

Cool


I've been given permission by Queball to convert and poly reduce the Nihydron Warship that he released on BCFiles and release it here on a2files, so here we are :)

Included in this mod are:

SOD file
Ship textures
Borg textures
Phaser texture
Buildbutton
Ship ODF
Weapon ODF's
AdmiralsLog picture
Wireframe

Nice job Dan. I see you knocked it down by about 1500 polies.


I was just playing with this ship myself, and contemplating reducing it. I'm guessing, knowing you, you've done the other 2 as well? (Zahl and Mawasi)


Long story short, I'm making a Delta Quadrant TC, and looks like you've just saved me some work :-)


I'll speak to you (and Queball) soon regarding permissions, as I have a small list to ask of you, but in the meantime, excellent work ;-)

Back in full modding mode then are you lol?


I have the Mawasi ship reduced, and I plan to get it hardpointed and released at some point today/this week. I havn't got around to reducing the Zahl ship yet, but it's on my list and I should have it done soon :-)
