Fireball brings us one truly awesome mod of the Constellation class. Now, it's his opinion that this work isn't his finest, and that he's capable of better, but when you see the results he gets that he ISN'T happy with, it kind of makes you wonder what'd happen if he was on his game and put together a Constellation class starship..... like, how could it be better? Nice lightmaps, detailed build button and wireframe, and best of all, a canon Federation starship that looks better than ever.

Note that you'll need to follow the instructions in the readme very carefully because there's some sprite entries you'll want to be sure you enter, otherwise you'll be crashing the game instead of playing it.

Constellation Class by Michael/Fireball

Background: I'm sure we all know of the Constellation class, it's a hard hitting, moderatley shielded destroyer. About this download though, in the coming months i'm going to be releasing
all of the ships that have become obsolete to me. By obsolete I mean that they are no longer up to the quality standards that I have set for my mod. But there is no point in letting things rot away in the hard-drive, ya
never know someone, somewhere might be inspired. Anyways all the usual is included, enjoy.

Open the ODF of a shipyard of your choice
and add the ship to build there

Go to the techtree folder in the Armada II directory.
