New Ships

Postby heroquestelf » Sun Apr 16, 2006 8:39 pm

This is a sort of patch file for Starship Tycoon. It alters the default ships.

The four images are of a "Wolverine" from "Space: Above and Beyond", a "Narn Heavy Cruiser" from "Babylon 5", a "Constitution" class ship from "Star Trek: The Original Series" (essentially Enterprise NCC-1701), and the "Prometheus" from "Stargate: SG-1".

http://webpages.charter.net/heroquestelf/SHIPS.dds

When you click on this link, you want to save it into your ....\Starship Tycoon\bitmaps\ folder. It will overwrite your current "SHIPS.dds" file, so you may want to make yourself a backup first.

I've thoroughly tested the file, and the only problem I've found with it is that the Narn Heavy Cruiser tends to flicker a bit on the screen, but that's all. Otherwise they work perfectly.

If anyone has any trouble with the file, or has any comments, I welcome them. You can post them here, or email me at [ p k b r o (AT) c h a r t e r . n e t ](minus the spaces between the letters).

I would also be willing to take special requests--ie if someone wants a pure Bab 5 or Star Trek set, although I'm a little short on models. For example, I wanted a "White Star", but couldn't find a decent model anywhere. And while I'm a decent image editor, trying to create my own model is beyond my abilities. :roll:

The "White Star" is the official "Ranger" fighter ship from Babylon 5.
