This is the update for the Niagara Class starship by Hardyous. Download if you wish!

=============Niagara class for Armada 2 version 2.0===================

Thankyou for downloading this mod,

this is a texture and odf modification of my Niagara class i released last march

it has a ghost compilation mod odf, this is becuase this is the mod i run on my computer. if you have ghost's compilation mod then you can re name the ODF to fniag and follow the normal instructions.

To install,

put the file fniag.sod into the SOD folder

put the texture files into the Textures > RGB folder

put the file fniag.odf into the ODF > ships folder

open the file fyard2.odf or fyard.odf (whitchever shipyard you want the ship
to be built from)
and put in the line: buildItemXX = "fniag"
XX being the next unused number

save that file

open tech 1 from the folder called Techtree
and add this line:

fniag.odf 1 fyard2.odf // Niagara class

OR if you want it to be made from the normal yard

fniag.odf 2 fyard.odf fresear.odf // Niagara class

then save and open Gui global.spr from the folder named Sprites

scroll down untill you reach the end of the federaton buttons

the add this line

b_fniag gbfniag 0 0 64 64

there is a wire frame just put this line into the gui global under wireframes


fniagw1 fwniag 40 0 40 40

Well, I've never been a fan of the Niagara-class.

Starting from 10:

-4 for rough saucer edges

-4 for little or no hull textures

+1 for correct registry number (a rarity amongst most mods I've seen)

+3 for nice job on the nacells

So, 6/10.

Maybe, if a variant was released that eliminated the the bottom nacell, and if the textures were touched up a little, then this could be an excellent mod.

A very good release, but I would hesitate to download it simply because of the low poly saucer. As for the registry. If the ship was a hero and therefore not mass producable then the registry is no worries but with it being mass producable it seems silly to have every one of the ships built having the same registry.

I see from the pic that this model has more hp's. The original one fired all weapons from the port side... Even torpedo's. I think this really is an improvement. only the saucer could use a little work. 9/10
#4 JamesTiberiusKirk 2005-07-05 09:04
lol phasers dont come out of thrusters! LOL it has phaserbanks for that.... -5 for low poly and hp

yeah, sorry about all the problems with it. as i dont have a working modling programmei can't do much about the hull, and i've tried t move hard points to the phaser strips using *****imveiw but all i can say is that im still a newbie when it comes to modeling, texturing i can do to a degree (although al the textures were done in this modle using cut and paste in paint). i can do something about the registry, to be honest i'd never even noticed until it was mentioned here, but thatnks for the positive (and not so positive) comments, it will help me if and when i do a version 3.0 :P
#6 Joelteon7 2005-07-05 10:17
The 3.0 should have a round saucer and possibly improved hp's and I'll certainly download it, everything about that model and textures I think are good, jsut nto the saucer.

You probably should make version 3 by kitbashing an actual Ambassador class that's what the Niagra Class is based off of...
#8 Hardyous_of_vulcan 2005-07-08 12:31
the niagara is a ship with galaxy class nacelles and it's own components, it only shares the secondary hull with the ammb*****ador class. the freedom class uses the same saucer and nacelle as the niagara only without the secondary hull

Class, Mass, Assimview, Ambassador, Class, Class, Class, Ambassador, Class, Class
