Hi adi,

btw I have no idea where this model is from. I could not find it in galaxy mod.
you may need to create a ship pack of model



the Achilles needs a lot of work, but slowly progressing.

I'll have to look it up; the klingon battle cruiser; i haven't used that "custom" mod in a while; it was before the MPR++ .
i'll find it, create a ship pack and upload it somewhere;
can we do attachments to PM?

Ok, searching for the klingon battlecruiser, i installed 5-6 moods but nothing; i ended up finding it in one of the ship packs from the download section: ShipPackVoltron.zip; model name T07

I added all your new ships to my MPR++ UDML3.0.dc; they show great in demo mode and in the ship list. Most made it into high tech tiers. I'll test them in game soon but there should be no issues.

Awesome work, thank you!

And thanks to Flocke for the MPR++!

quick question scale of klingon battlecruiser nose to tail in meter?

the only problem I could foresee would be the normal problem "scale"

I was thinking of adding the "flt" file for proper scaling of the placeholders. They are easy to create if you have flt.

How to create hob placeholders

Here is a great little tool QD created for me. flt2hob folder just extract to a location with no spaces (C:\) is what I use.
flt2hob.rar
(185.22 KiB) Downloaded 44 times
copy the flt to flt2hob folder. Then open a command prompt. Next drag and drop "FLTtoHOB.bat" into command prompt, then hit space bar, then drag and drop your flt into command prompt, then hit space bar again, next just type the scale you want for your model in meters (in this case the model is 165 meters so enter 165.0) then press enter. A new .hot and .hob files will be created.

Note; on scale the value used should be the largest part of the model so if model is wider than it is longer use width and so on.

Image

this tool creates copies of hobs for you (hh4_a.hob, hh4_b.hob, hh4_c.hob) to add to stbof.res.

btw no other changes are needed to palette or setting of texture.

Now you have a 14 polygon placeholder/phaser slot hobs.

Well, it's almost been a year since anyone posted here, but still.

As the colony ship and troop transport are quite important during most of the game, I was wondering if anyone had made a new model for these two types of ships for the federation. It sort of feels weird to colonize planets with the curry class ship and the troop transport available so far doesn't fit very well with any early type of ships for the feds.
