About this mod

The Victory class starship design, originally by Queball, has been brought to A2 before, but never quite like this. The design is itself one of the more sophisticated Sovereign what-if alternate designs available, with an interesting setup bearing a more-than-passing similarity to that mighty class of vessel. Dan1025 has put some time and effort into this conversion, and does it ever show. The level of quality of the textures is matched (as always) by the thorough details: admirals' log pic, build button and wireframe along with separate .ODF entries for the weapons. In short, as Federation battleships go, you couldn't ask for much better than the Victory class. Download this one right now.

Readme:
This is a conversion of the Victory Class made and released by Queball on BCFiles. The model has 4 textures (512x512) and a poly count of 6600. The poly count may seem a little high but I've had many of them onscreen at once during the course of testing them and there's little to no lag.



Included in this mod are:



SOD file

Ship textures

Borg textures

Ship ODF

Weapon ODFs

AdmiralsLog picture

Buildbutton

Wireframe
