This is something unexpected, which looks rather awesome. From the only episode where Harry Kim gets any female attention (y'know what I'm saying), "The Disease" (VOY), here's the Varro. Avon's done a pretty awesome job with this mod. Here's how it works out:

Quote:
This mod will allow you to build the Varro habitat pods from a shipyard.
Build 8 of these pods and you can merge them to form a larger transport ship.
Get 3 transport ships together, and you can create the large Generational ship.


No idea if the ship itself will break apart and everyone goes their own separate ways, or what. Only one way to find out.

Worth a look!

Cool

Varro Ships - FOR ARMADA 2

***********************************************
Introduction.

The Varro are a Xenophobic humanoid species from the Delta Quadrant, who live for many generations in the depths of space.

This mod will allow you to build the Varro habitat pods from a shipyard.
Build 8 of these pods and you can merge them to form a larger transport ship.
Get 3 transport ships together, and you can create the large Generational ship.

***********************************************
Note.

This mod requires the Fleet Ops Patch Project 1.2.5

(alternatively I guess you could just remove the special weapons and make the 3 ships buildable from a yard)

***********************************************
***********************************************

INSTALLATION --------------

Add the sod files to your sod folder

Add the odf files into the relevent odf folders. (ships, weapons, and special weapons)

Add all the bitmap files to your bitmaps/AdmiralsLog/ShipImages folder.

Add all the TGA files to your textures/RGB folder.

Milkshape files included as usual for anyone wanting to tinker with them.
-----------------------

Locate a suitable yard to build from (eg fyard2) from within your odf/stations folder.
Add the following in your construction parameters:

buildItem4 = "varro1"

-----------------------
-----------------------

Locate your gui_global file from within your sprite folder.
Add the following at the end of the federation build buttons:

b_varro1 gbvarro 0 0 64 64

Next scroll down to the bottom of the build buttons (just before the wireframes begin) and add the following:

b_gvarro1 gbgvarro1 0 0 64 64
b_gvarro2 gbgvarro2 0 0 64 64
b_gvarro3 gbgvarro3 0 0 64 64

Finally scroll down till you see the following:

## SPRITE DATA ##

# Ship Wireframes

Underneath this add the following:


@reference=256
@tmaterial=interface

varro1w1 varrowf 0 0 128 128
varro2w1 varrowf 128 0 128 128
varro3w1 varrowf 0 128 128 128

Save all your cahnges in this file and exit.

-----------------------

Lastly, locate your fulltech file from within your techtree folder.
Add the following:

varro1.odf 0
varro2.odf 0
varro3.odf 0
gvarro1.odf 0
gvarro2.odf 0

Oh yes, she does break apart ;-)

Avon, why did you not put this into the years-end-contest? all this whimpering in the forums - and then you present something like this off the cuff. ;-)
#3 Freyr 2009-01-03 04:36
Because he's demonstrating that he has something far better for the contest. :D
#4 dan1025 2009-01-03 08:16
Very very nice work here Avon, though why not keep this one for your DQ mod?


Still 10/10 :-)

@ ameba - This ship uses the patch project. I beleive that is not allowed for the contest. And whimpering is what I do best ;-)


@Freyr - actaully, I'm emarassed to say I have nothing for the contest....


@dan - mod on hold indefinately. Lots of other things going on, no time to work on it at the moment.
