A2 upgrade advances on my friends with the latest addition to the largescale Multiplayer Mod. This addition being the Species 8472's turn to get the upgrade.

Curtis did very well with this mod, for several reasons. Actual canon Species 8472 shots are hard to come by, only Voyager being the real source of 8472 designs. Most of the other 8472 sources are either conceptual or indeed from Armada 2 or Mods of other games, so these upgrades are totally brand new. Initially when I saw the screenshot and the targa's in Adobe I thought this would be the most "inferior" of the A2 upgrades but after playing with them, I WAS PROVEN WRONG.. this is 8472 with a twist - the twist being an armoured-bio fleet which makes the "lined" textures more plausible.

The battleship, Frigate, and cruiser stand out as really quality retextures - With the dark grey/black textures on the Battleship and Frigate you could say both of them got "Venom-ed" stick out tongue Both are menacing looking and are the "best" of this mod imho.

The Launcher, destroyer and scout following the same colour schemes as the stock but are vastly improved, as do the non-combat ships and stations. The Mothership is now a blue texture but I honestly think the "bio-amour" texture doesn't suit it or indeed the Behemoth, but that is only my opinion.

It also includes a excellent Splash screen!

In totality, this is well worth the download and is a definate improvement on the bland stock texturing.. for pure creativity and what it brings to the table this is probably one of the best of the A2 upgrade packs. About time we got more 8472 mods around this place wink

Get's a Two Thumbs Up! from me

But IKS' initial assesment is correct, this would be the more inferior set of upgrades from curtis thus far, not that the quality of the texture is bad or anything, but I think the original stock textures suit species 8472, I would have like to see more of a refinement of the old textures than a complete overhaul and replacement. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the textures, I just don't think the whole armor look suit 8472. Nonetheless, this deserves an 8/10 for the effort, keep up the good work and I look forward to the klingon upgrade!!

I'll be the first to admit,that without much to go on from movies,shows,etc..this really was a work of fiction..of fiction..lol..but i digress and leave the opinions to you all.And who says this is the last for the 8472 set...my work is always "in progress" and always changing.im learning as i go..once it clicks with me every little curve and corner of this paticular fleets models...you'll see something special.

Well maybe as a suggestion, Straight lines could be avoided on the Organic Lifeforms/Ships/stations of 8472. Maybe something more with curves? wink

For the rest of all texture packs, great work big grin

I am thunderfoot006.
In Chiletrek's behalf I must say these are interesting. The whole texture upgrade project has been just excellent. The Romulans and Cardassians in particular no longer look like they came from Star Trek: The Animated Series(Yes, there was one.) These make a nice change from the stock 8472 texturesand I think the Mother looks wicked in her new colours. Makes me feel like Anthony Perkins when I play 8472. Thanks to all the people who have put in so much hard work on the A2 Upgrade Project.
P.S. Chiletrek has been on vacation. Now that he is back, he has not moved from his 'puter since installing these. wink

well I for one enjoyed this mod, agreed the lines on the textures look like the ship is made of bricks and mortar but the black textures are cool - think of it, if organic ships are flying through space the natural camoflauge would be black

That's a totally refreshing look to one of the most forgotten A2 race: Species 8472.
I am myself making a big 8472 mod with many new additions and I hope to get a first release ready soon but I will mostly use stock textures in most new bioships (some of them will be totally new with new texture sets. But you may change that to Curti's project without problems).
Thanks Curtis for making this, I specially like the many changes in your Fed pack, and I look forward to see the last pack: The Klingons, keep it up! Rock

I hope it gets posted soon, so I can post a proper comment about it big grin , but I can say (in the 8472 section) it has some better textures, like the one for the cocoon, the hatchlings and specially the Mothership.
