About this mod

This is the Pulsar Class V1.2 and the Pulsar Variants V1.0. They are balanced according to stock and then have a bit of a boost. The Pulsar Class will "upgrade" to the Pulsar Weapons Variant and that will "upgrade" to the Pulsar X Class. Admirals log pics, buildbuttons and simple wireframes included. This upgrade system is a preview of what's to come in STA2: Beyond the Horizon. I swear this ship looks a lot like the Luna every time I look at it, but it isn't quite "there". Nevertheless, three advancements (well, actually two, as one is the orignal) of the Pulsar Class. Download, Upgrade & Enjoy - SSA

Armada 2: Activison & Mad-Doc



INSTALLATION:

1) Unzip the contents of the file into a temporary directory.

2) Open the folder C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2BitmapsAdmirals LogShip Images and copy fpulsar.bmp, fpulsarr.bmp, and fpulsarx.bmp there

3) Open the folder C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2ODFShips and copy fpulsar.odf, fpulsarr.odf, and fpulsarx.odf into it.

4) Open the folder C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2ODFSpecial_weapons and copy fpulsarupg.odf and fpulsarrupg.odf there.

5) Open the folder C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2SOD and place the fpulsar.sod, fpulsarr.sod, and fpulsarx.sod file there.

6) Finally open C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2TexturesRGB and paste pulsar_1.tga, pulsar_2.tga, pulsar_3.tga, pulsar_4.tga, gbfpuslar.tga, and wirePulsar.tga there.

7) Next to add the ship to your game, open C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2ODFStationsfyard.odf with a text editor, scroll down until you see:



//Construction Parameters

buildItem0 = "fscout"

buildItem1 = "fdestroy2"

buildItem2 = "fdestroy"

buildItem3 = "fcolony"

buildItem4 = "fcruise1"

buildItem5 = "fcruise3"

buildItem6 = "fassault"

buildItem7 = "fcruise2"



add buildItem8 = "fpulsar" right below buildItem7 = "fcruise2"

then buildItem9 = "fpulsarr" below that if you want the refit immediatly bulidable

and buildItem10 = "fpulsarx" below that if you want the X refit immediatly buildable



8) Next to get the buildbuttons and wireframes to appear, open C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2Spritesgui_global.spr, scroll down to the scetion titled Federation buildbuttons, add this line right below @reference=512:



b_fpulsargbfpulsar006464

b_fpulsarrgbfpulsarr006464

b_fpulsarxgbfpulsarx006464



b_fpulsarupggbfpulsarr006464

b_fpulsarrupggbfpulsarx006464





for the wireframes scroll down some more until you find # federation wire frames, with @reference=256 right below it, then add this below that line:



fpulsarw1wirePulsar256256256256

fpulsarrw1wirePulsarr256256256256

fpulsarxw1wirePulsarx256256256256



9) The final step is to add the Pulsar and variants to your techtree. Open the C:ActivisionStar Trek Armada 2techtrees folder and then open the techtree you want to add the ship too (I reccomend tech1.tt and fulltech.tt)



Anywhere in the file (tech1.tt or fulltech.tt) add these lines:



fpulsar.odf 0 //Pulsar Class

fpulsarr.odf0//Pulsar Class Weapons Refit

fpulsarx.odf0//Pulsar Class X Refit



fpulsarupg.odf0//Upgrades Pulsar to Pulsar Weapons Refit

fpulsarrupg.odf0//upgrades Pulsar Weapons Refit to Pulsar "X" Refit



10) If you followed these easy steps then you should now have the Pulsar class and it's variants in your Armada 2 game. Enjoy.
