Re: Storm3D Fail!

Just a hunch, check the format of your texture file, is it in TGA 24 bit format?

Re: Armada download section discussion

Sorry for the wait but I had to respond to a family emergency. Opening a discussion thread would be a fair way to allow community members to voice their opinions and ideas, but may take some time. It will allow them to comment on the quality of the mods so it will be easier to identify all high qual...

Re: NOTICE!!! Armada download section closing soon

May I suggest an alternative? Quote problem 1 I don't know Armada well enough to go tho...

Re: NOTICE!!! Armada download section closing soon

Just to clarify things for myself. You want to close the Armada 1 download section and not Armada 2 correct ?

Just asking because I am working on some new models and updating some of my older ones.

Will it be possible to send in new files for the Armada 2 section ?
Greetings shadow

Re: Planet Textures Help Please! (Armada 2)

Just assuming that you installed everything properly, I guess that it is a glitch or typo in naming. Just an example: The name of the SOD / OGF and TGA files have to be the same. The planet in this example uses 2 Textures therefore the numbers. PB_CLSSA.SOD PB_CLSSA.odf PB_CLSSA1.tga PB_CLSSA2.tga A...

Re: Why should AFC remain online?

Hi thunderchero just a few thoughts of mine. Even though that the site is not that active anymore it is still a good source of information and therefore has still its value. I am still modding Armada 2, mostly just for my own pleasure nowadays, but doing so for years I still have to look up some inf...

Re: anybody still around ?

Hi Mr Vulcan,

Now that filefront is officially dead, how do we proceed to get files on to the website?

I can send you my material via email if your account can handle large attachments.

Re: anybody still around ?

Hi Mr Vulcan, some of my late work has been published at http://armada2.filefront.com under the authors name shadow_from_afc. I would like to upload some of it here on this site so that new content keeps it interesting, but also to replace some of my old but a bit outdated work. Files in question ar...

Re: anybody still around ?

Still around occasionally, it is sad though that there is nothing new here. But well. I am still modding and playing armada2 and have created new material, but it is impossible to upload here,so it goes to filefront. Judging from my observations there are just a view hundred people still active over...

You can not install 3ds max files directly to Armada or Armada2. Files in this format are meant for modders and artists which want to use them to create their own version of these, or use them to create 3D Artwork. You need to have either one of these programs / editors: 3ds Max or Milkshape. Guessi...

As far as I have understood your post, you want to create armed planets. Correct? If so, you can find several examples of armed planets here on this site. Go to: Armada 2 Downloads/Space Bodys Look for one of these: 12 A2 armed & cloaked planets 12 A2 armed planets 12 new armed and cloaked planets f...

Just look at the lines of your coding an the mistake is obvious.

You wrote:

race10 = "sona"
race11 = “gorn”


instead it should read:

race10 = "sona.odf"
race11 = “gorn.odf”

Armada 2 stops to display your race list at race9 because the following referrals are not correct. So it stops there.

Warp Ships a possibility

What a lot of us always hoped for seems to be possible in the future. According to some article I stumbled on it is possible to create a real warp ship. Not now, but in around 400 years as is stated. Strange similarity, very strange, if you if you take a look at the Si Fi time lines. Here are the li...

Don’t get me wrong, it is a nice movie, if you like nothing more than a teenage action flick with a bad plot, useless violence and a ...
