Now, I realize a lot of you out there are working on your own personal total conversion projects, and I'm sure it'll be the absolute last word in Armada II modding, and so on and so forth, but there's a lot to be said for the approach taken by Wrath of Achilles. This guy turns out truly ASTOUNDING quality models. And he does 'em one at a time. Don't believe me? Go check the single ship releases he's done for the Cardassians. He's done more for them than Enabran Tain himself!

....wait, what? What d'you mean, Achilles is working on a total conversion too???

*sigh!*

It's so BORING waiting for new files to come in. Surely y'all can send SOMETHING for me to upload? A ship! A station! A piece of space debris! A great bleedin' asteroid in space! Picard's head! SOMETHING! You must understand how underutilized I feel as a moderator right now. It's not very good for self-esteem. Why, I believe I hear Freyr just sobbing away from here--- and I just KNOW it's not because he feels sorry for the people who tried to beat him in multiplayer!

My emotional needs aside.... this little (and I emphasize LITTLE, as in "not a total conversion", as in "something at LAST, thank the GODS I can do something") ----

---as I was saying, this little project of Achilles', reproducing an old design of Deemon's from A1's venerable Millennium Project, give the Klingons a new toy to play with. The Bat'leth class (not to be confused with the Sword of Kahless class) battlecruiser is a formidable weapon for the Empire.

There is a lot in the plus column, to be sure, but there are a few drawbacks. No wireframe or Admiral's Log pic are included. Sure, it takes the average modder no time to do such things.... the same could be said to the author of the file. Further, a few on the forums have mentioned that they're not exactly keen on the two neck design. I don't know, I'm really more taken aback by the giant symbol of the Klingon Empire on the underside. Perhaps this is why the ship is not armed with a cloaking device, hmm? The power requirements to hide a symbol that big would make the engines useless! Wink

Still, with a few tweaks and bits here and there, this ship's sure to give a few nightmares to the enemies of the Empire, and bring further glory and honour to all warriors who use her guns to conquer.

Honour the Wrath of Achilles.... with a download.

Cool


Klingon dreadnought Bat'Leth by Wrath of Achilles

This was originally designed by the renowned Deemon for the Millenium
Project, I always liked it and, with a nudge from Tycoon, rebuilt it.
It stands at only 1614 polies so go ahead and mass build.


Installation**

Move all folders (Textures, odf, SOD) to your Star trek armada 2 directory

Open gui_global.SPR and scroll down to the klingon build buttons.
add this line

b_kdread2 gbkdread2 0 0 64 64


Open tech1.TT and add this line anywhere (for neatness sake you can place with
other klingon listings)

kdread2.odf 2 kyard2.odf kupgrade.odf


Open kyard2.odf and scroll down to the build list then add this line at the bottom.

buildItem4 = "kdread2"

(number 4 is the next number in sequence in the unedited kyard2.odf)



Credits**

Original design by Deemon
Mesh and Texture by WrathofAchilles
Inspired by Tycoon

still enjoys destroying something with a Klingon ship.

I love this ship, best klingon ship I've seen in a long time. As for the twin necks (bridging beams), they make it look much better in my opinion, simply because they make it look sturdier and to be fair twin necks are much more structurally sound than one neck/bridging beam. Also the textures are really nice, authentic Klingon hull colour. Great work!

Yeah, this was my review. I don't know how my name got left off.

kudos to you Achilles!

This is a well made ship, very high quality(as usual). I actually have the original model, I forget where I got it, but the textures are nowhere near as high quality as this. I personally have no problem with this design, as for the big klingon insignia, there's nothing preventing us from arming the ship with a cloaking device ourselves, which I did. In point of fact, I think the head of the ship is a little big, and I think it would look much better if made smaller, think Griffin class except it's a dreadnought battleship. But regardless, this ship will make those Romulan weasels cower before the might of the Empire!!! 910

Very nice! Since this ship has apparently been done before, are there any wireframes to go with it?
