|Dominion Carrier - File Description
| Balance: 8 |
Size vs. Usefulness: 9
Overall Rating: 8.8
This is from the hit Star Trek game, "Dominion Wars" and, as per request, has been made by Achilles (and help from STGamer). All in all, I can't see what is wrong with the design, as quite honestly, it looks fine. Different, definitely, but fun and something interesting to look at.
Given it's stats, being "able to take on 4 battleships", it throws open as to how balanced it is...but then again, it's Dominion with multi-targeting customised weapons, so try it out yourself. The textures are flawless as expected and the Borg textures are VERY green, perhaps too much so, but, they were done and that is something rare. Complementing that is the build button, wireframe, admiral's log and all necessary files (just what we want). A foreboding sight in game, as can be easily seen in the pic below, she would be a very destructive addition to your Dominion Armada...so what are you waiting for?

Dominion Carrier from Dominion Wars Class for ST:Armada 2 by Wrath of Achilles & STGamer2002
This is the Dominion Carrier as seen in the Dominion wars games, I personally don't like the design but I've had enough requests that this thing should just be done. I've armed it will with multi-targeting phasers, it should match up to four battleships.
Move all folders (Textures, odf, SOD, bitmaps) to your Star trek armada 2 directory
Open gui_global.SPR in your sprites directory and scroll down to the cardassian build
buttons. Add this line amongst the ships.
b_dcarrier gbdcarrier 0 0 64 64
Then in the wireframe section at the bottom add these lines.
dcarrierw1 dccwireframe 0 0 256 256
dcarrierw2 dccwireframe 0 0 256 256
dcarrierw3 dccwireframe 0 0 256 256
dcarrierw4 dccwireframe 0 0 256 256
dcarrierw5 dccwireframe 0 0 256 256
Open tech1.TT in your techtree folder and add this line.
(for neatness sake you can place with other Cardassian listings)
dcarrier.odf 2 cyard2.odf cresear2.odf
Open cyard2.odf in your odf/stations directory and scroll down to the build list and add
this after buildItem7
buildItem4 = "dcarrier"
or, to put it in it's correct place alter the list so this ship is under the ccruise1.
remember to keep the build list in ascending sequence.
All is done, enjoy.
at 1496 polies this ship is fine for a heavy battleship/dreadnought and should not present any problems for low end machine users.
The sod and textures will work not work in armada 1, Email me for help on this
Feel free to use this in any mod so long as credit is given to me for the model
and textures and STGamer2002 for button, odf and borg textures.
Feel free to edit the odfs in any way so long as credit is given, please contact me

|Ugly ships tend to be the meanest f*ckers in space so I downloaded it a few minutes ago to clean up a few feds lying around.. |
as for the quality of the ship I cannot stress enough the mod ability that Achilles has. Without Achilles we would have very very little quality cardassian and Dominion ships.. Brilliant Ship, but I prefer your Cruiser that you released a while back.
As for the Borg Textures, I don't think the Borg will be able to assimilate this beast!

|I prefer the cruiser aswell, it was Azel's deign and I'll take those over a game designers any day. |
The borg textures look fine to me, I'm not too familiar with the A2 stock ones so I can't make a comparrison, also I sent STGammer2002 much lighter versions of these textures to work with.

Finally, the Dominion Carrier, the only thing now is to make it carry Dominion Bugs as it says in the Dominion Wars game.
Great work Achilles, keep it up!
P.S.: I do like those Borg textures aswell

|wow! good going achilles |
Makes the rest of us look like mere mortals...
just a little side note though... i find that the best borg textures go a little somthing like this...
Replace any glows on the model with borg coloured green ones, add some damage (like the ship put up a fight before assimilation) and have some panels on the ship kind of "cut out" and replaced with borgified ones (as if the borg have repaired enough of the damage for the ship to be usable and replaced some of the ships inferior tech with their own) rather than just changing the hue of the texture towards the green end of the spectrum.
that said, the textures are awsome and achillies' skills are well in advance of mine
good work achillies

|I kinda done the best way to see the Borg texture for the ship. The regular texture for the mod was abit light, but I done it to make it just 'borg green' enough and not 'Romulan Green'. Also, your sidenote dinosaurJR was already taken when I made it. I added some 'Borg Hull' implants to them to get it more a 'assimulation' look. So it's not just a 'green hull color' texture. |

|UGLY? The earlier comments claim that this is ugly? This has to be one of my favorite dominion designs ever--- it's very different from the rest, yet still so dominion. Thank you Achilles! |

|To Achilles, should you ever read this again, I wondered if you might convert this to Armada 1 Sod format, as I really can't seem to get A2 to work, and as I said before I love this ship. I would appreciate it greatly! |
