Is it the hardpointing your having difficulty with or just the actual conversion from SFC/SFC II? If its just the conversion I can convert them very easily for you. If its hardpoints, I can stick a few Hps on them for you to move about manually in the A1 SOD Viewer, if you like.

also about the name. i was thinking some thing with the tholians because this is like the first mod with tholians for A1. if i got the time i might make a new main menu screen for it but i will need some help if u can.if u want because ur giving those ships and permission in the read me i could put some thing like "this mod would not have been possible with out the help of squire james"

Well, KATC did have the Tholians, admittedly as campaign only, so it isn't strictly the first but.

The Mirak Star League are the race that was known in SFC as the Kzinti Hegemony. Sort of "dogs" to the Lyran "cats". They use drones/missiles as their main secondary weapon, rather than photon or plasma torpedoes.

I can send all the vessels you need from SFC II provided you can convert from A2 to A1 format. Its not hard, just open the tga files, remove the lightmap, open the SOD files, resave as A1 Sod. Tada, done. I'm afraid I haven't the time to convert all my converted SFC II A2 Lightmapped models to A1 Unlightmapped models for you, but your welcome to the A2 versions if you can convert them to A1 yourself.

Mirak CA (picturefrom Battleclinic, but this same model is in KA2 as the Wolf Class Cruiser)

Open the tga in photoshop or PSP, then find the channels (in photoshop, theres a small tab to the bottom right) and you will see Red, Green, Blue and Alpha. Simply delete this alpha layer.

i dont care how u do it. what ever orders fine. oh and for ur hydran tholian orion and lyrans. would u happen to have voices for them if u do could i borrow them. also i was wondering if i could incoprerate ur tholians ships into my mod. also if u have better voices for the heros of any race i would like to have some.

Well I recorded the Tholian ones myself, and I have no voices for the Hydrans, Lyrans and Orion Pirates as they don't feature as playable races. The only voices they do have are for when they launch fighters. (other players can hear the subspace radio transmissions)
