Terran fighter pack
Something for you fighter freaks out there:
The pack contains tiny (fighters) and small (corvettes - or call them heavy fighters or whatever...) ships, 10 each, for the human ship style.
All of the ships are basic hulls with extras. No engines, weapons etc. attached. Note that you will have to research Advanced Hulls to get access to fighters 07 - 10. The reason is simply that I wanted to use the second human tiny hull (cockpit) for some of the fighters and it becomes available only then. All the others you should see in the ship designer right after you start a new game.
Be warned that some of them (especially the fighters) more or less look like aircraft (wings and stuff), but hey, that's what they do in pretty much any SF-movie, right? Anyway, you can look at the pics I included before extracting the files.
I stole the naming convention from Rabid_Monkey that he used in his great Imperial ship-pack:
FGT (fighter) - tiny or
CRV (corvette) - small.
You need GalCiv2 version 1.2 (might work with 1.1 but I couldn't check) and the Collector's Edition stuff to use them. Please update BEFORE you unzip the files.
Their .shipcfg-files are all less than 20 KB so they should not effect your gameplay too much.
INSTALLATION: Unzip the .xml and .shipcfg files into your ...\My Games\GalCiv2 or ...\My Games\GalCiv2\ships directory, depending on if you use folder names when unzipping or not.
Hope you like them,

Ultimate Design Freedom Mod v1.1 by Rasori
Rel. July 1, 2006
+ Nearly all functional components are now replaced with a blank model (invisible) and one hardpoint facing the same direction as the original hardpoint. (Exceptions are the currently impossible: Colony, Troop, and Advanced Troop Module)
+ All weapons/defense/etc graphics still work
+ All components except Colony Modules, Troop Modules, and Advanced Troop Modules work as intended
+ The AI will use the Blank Modules, allowing for cleaner ships on their part (I have found this to be exclusive, tell me if you find a time other than the excepted modules where they don't)
+ Blank components separated into their own tabs for ease of browsing
+ One can make an entire jewelry ship (with the help of KHSM) and not mar it with components
+ One can install a ship from another work (Star Wars, Star Trek, etc) and not mar it with components
+ Works with all races and bug-free (AFAIK)
+ (V1.1) Now includes thumbnails for all blank components.
