Gotta hand it to CanadianBorg on this one. Starting from yesterday's upload (that was fast) he's put together a second version of the Bajoran starbase. This one offers the option of building everything Mishkaco recently ported to supplement our Bajoran friends (although those ships have to be downloaded separately), and comes with a rather nice set of textures, considering the age of the original asteroid model. Not a bad second chance at a first mod. Worth a closer look.

Cool


Bajoran Starbase V2 by CanadianBorg

This is my second mod, so any advice or pointers are appreciated.

The Bajoran Starbase I designed is based on a retextured asteroid model converted from Starfleet Command 1 (yes, I have the original), and the rest is scratch-built.

Thanks to Mishkaco for letting me use his Bajoran ships.

Thanks to FahreS for his transparent textures tutorial. As you can (or can't, they're transparent) see, I used them in the dome. Thanks man!

Installation:

Open the archive file and extract the folder "Bajoran Starbase" somewhere outside your A2 directory.

Copy all the folders inside to your root A2 directory.

Now, open gui_global.spr in the "sprites" folder in your A2 main directory with Notepad, and scroll down to the Federation build buttons. Now enter:

b_bajbase gbbajbase 0 0 64 64
b_bajscout gbbajscout 0 0 64 64
b_bajdestroy gbbajdestroy 0 0 64 64

below the last item.

Close gui_global.spr and go to the techtree folder within the A2 directory with Notepad. Now open tech1.tt. Scroll down to the Federation stations and enter the following:

bajbase.odf 1 ftrading.odf

Now go up to Federation ships and add:

bajscout.odf 1 bajbase.odf
bajdestroy.odf 1 bajbase.odf

Now save and close tech1.tt. Open fulltech.tt with Notepad and enter the following anywhere in the list:

bajbase.odf 0
bajscout.odf 0
bajdestroy.odf 0

Now save and close the file.

Now go to the odf folder, and go "ships". Open fconst.odf with Notepad, and enter the following:

buildItemxx = "bajbase"

Where "xx" is the next number in the list (replace it with this number).

That's it! You're ready to use the Bajoran Starbase and ships in your game! I might be coming out with a V3 of this by the way, so stay tuned!

Actually, I included the Bajoran impulse fighter and destroyer, plus all requisite files. So it comes completely self-contained. I also created new Borg textures for the ships, as well as new build buttons and Admiral's Log pictures. I also have Mishkaco's full permission, so don't go bugging me about that.

P.S. Resistance is futile, eh?

Actually, this is a different asteroid than I used in the first one. It uses the same texture, though.
