FIREBALL_IV, 2011-02-02

The D-7 would become one of the most famous and heavily used vessels in the Empire. It was a ship that would strike fear into foes.
It possessed powerful weaponry and defences while being manueverable. This made it ideal for almost any combat scenario. The D-7 would see duty for
a long period of time including a future refit to the K'tinga class.

This includes all of the usual goodies such as build button, wireframe and damage.
Enjoy!

the
#texture definitions,
# sprite_node definitions
and the actual emitters.

now, for the first part.
under
#texture definitions and also under @refrence=128
add these lines:

gplasma xgrplas 0 0 32 32 @anim=tex4x4_smoke

Okay, next under *sprite_node definitions

This must be the best D-7 ever. Thanks for this, Mike, you've done an amazing job.
#2 Jetfreak 2011-02-02 15:57
Ooh, a great rendition! Thumbs up!
#3 LowRider1990 2011-02-02 16:39
Nice! When can we expect a refit? As in K'tinga?
#4 Limebarker 2011-02-02 21:38
I never seen them before, are you going to upload them later?
#5 Terra_Inc 2011-02-03 01:24
@#4 & everybody else - this comes from Mike's Dawn of War TOS/TMP mod. More info about this mod can be found at the forums. 8)

Thank you for all of the comments folks!

As for a K'tinga, it is planned in the future, however nothing immediate.


As for the stations, as my friend Terra suggested they're a part of my mod.

The Klingon side is due for release as a full race mod in the coming weeks.
