This is another great shipyard (with a twist) from FahreS. This is the 'Claw' shipyard, a generic shipyard which has 5 seperate versions based on different textures. They are as follows; maroon, green, silver/grey, light brown, and black. It is up to you to designate which shipyard should be played by who. The model quality is very good and the shipyard's design is very easy on the eye. In my opinion, the black/purple (possibly Dominion) shipyard is the best but all of them are just as good as each other.

Great work Rock

@IKS_Yo_Mama, no problem i didnt even know that there is a multirace folder

@HMS_Frontier, you can change that with a Hex Editor, i just saw no reason in using the same yard multiple times.

@Achilles, thanks man, that means a lot for me, because i think that of all of your models, so im sure you know whats good and what not.

@someddrnoob, sorry but that was too much work for me

And thanks for the positive reactions.

I think this is the tool and a description to edit the sod file.

Its written for legacy m3ds but it should work with sods too.;6756322;;/fileinfo.html

The Romulan-like Textures could also be used as Borg Textures that almost fit with the Stock Game.
