Description

Please test and report back - unless a major flaw is found this is what will be included in the 1.0 release of the mod. (Hopefully first half of this year)


Orbital Weapons Platform
AUS_Doug
Buildable at the fith Tech Level on:
Mon Calimari, Kuat, Fondor, Sullust, Hypori, Mandalore, Coruscant and Bothawui.
Featuring 4 AA guns on the top, and a Turbolaser battery on each corner of the structure, it can, as part of a well-managed defense, pose a big threat to any attacking force.
The platforms shield generator is not targetable for attack.

There are some people I would like to thank, for help making this possible.
Firstly, Ironclad Games; Those who have played the games will recognise this as the TEC starbase from the Sins Of A Solar Empire games.

Secondly, EvilleJedi; The rotating turrets for this structure, and my decision to use them, came from his wonderful Venator model.

And, last but not least, Warb_Null and Sidious Invader of the EAW Gamefront Forums; Sidious for his link to a tutorial that helped a great deal, and Warb for his in depth explanation that got me over the line when it came to getting the Turbolasers working.

Included in this package:
The Models, Textures, and the Code necessary for the platform to work in game.
Some additional coding is required to get it available in game. (Making entries in the 'Hardpoint data files' and 'Game Object files' XMLs)

Credits:
Original Starbase Model and Textures: Ironclad Games (Rigged for Empire At War by me.) Turret Models and Texture: EvilleJedi
XML Coding by me.
And Warb_Null and Sidious Invader for all their help

Just fixed the poor formatting of the description.
I didn't realise that this site so disagreed with copy and pasting from Notepad++.
Sorry about that.

Also, something I forgot to mention: Permissions.
Basically, do whatever you want with this model.
Re-code it so that its a movable ship that can barrel roll for all I care;
JUST AS LONG AS YOU GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE IF YOU INCLUDE IT IN YOUR OWN PUBLIC RELEASE.

Perhaps it looks identical because it IS the Starbase from Sins.
I just rigged it for EAW, using rotating turrets.
