Belamb Class Belamb Class

Well... this is of Federation design, if not a little... different to what we are used to seeing. A rather big saucer, when compared to everything else, most likely, a design from the future. Looking at the Ent-J seen in ENT reminds me of such.

--==--Belamb Class Command Carrier--==--

The next stage of Command Carrier following the Typhon. Armed with Dual Phasers and a spread of quantum torpedoes it easily surpasses the Typhon. It also Sports a new experimental weapon called The Fleet Buster. It could easily be classified with the Excalibur.

It builds a kitbashed Colony Ship and the Valkyrie Class fighter from AFC by OMNISIGHT.(Note: I could not obatain permission as he never emailed me back but if you can mod it you can add the Valkyrie yourslf.) The Belamb is a mix between original mesh and kitbashed pieces from the Aegian and Nebula Classes.

*+*Installation Instructions*+*

Really...How odd.


Possible reasons would be you're weapon sprite file is altered and no longer has the stock sprite regsitries in them. It uses the stock Borg blue mineing beam, the ultrium burst ball sod. The only non stock texture is the shockwave.


And I think i know why it's crashing your game. I totally just had a flashback, suprised no one else has had problems, in the weapons sprite file after


@reference=128

@tmaterial=additive

That is a black texture. You might have to make one. I cant belive i forgot the out that in. I was trying to make it easy and use stock weapons but i guess i forgot i used that. Hope it fixes it and apologies to anyone else who had problems.

I tried to transfer the Fleet Buster to my Excalibur, but it won't fire the weapon. It only works with the Belamb.
