Having conclusively rewritten the book on the Cardassians, Dan1025 seems to be turning his attention to other races now, notably the Romulans. One of the fighters has been previously released but now re-textured by Dan; the other is a new design to A2. Both look fantastic, quintessentially Romulan. And of course, both of them are just waiting for the chance to make an appearance in your A2 build. After all, you've already got Dan's Cardassian fighters, and Dan's Javelin fighter for Starfleet, don't you?

As usual, all the fine details (build buttons, wireframes etc) are present and accounted for, the installation instructions are thorough, and Dan's work on these is of his usual excellent quality.

Download this one today.

Cool


This mod contains 2 Romulan fighters, one is already available for A2, the other one isn't, and I've altered the textures to make them look more like Post-Nemesis designs.

Included in this mod are:

SOD files
Ship textures
Borg textures
Buildbuttons
Ship ODFs
Weapon ODF's
Wireframes
AdmiralsLog pictures

Personally, I never liked this fighter design. It just didn't seem... Romulan enough to me. But Dan's done a great job with these, I have to admit.

P.S. Resistance is futile, eh?
