Here are some Terran-style ships I made during the last couple of weeks.
The package contains 10 ships, one for each warship hull size plus 5 for the most commonly used cargo roles. All of the ships are basic hulls with extras. No engines, weapons etc. attached. So you should see them in the ship designer after you have researched the corresponding hull size class.
They are more or less asymmetrical and very 'navy-ish' and therefore probably not for everyone's taste, but 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:
z Croc-[Cargo role]-0x
Designation is 'Cargo' or, in case of warships, the Navy-like designations:
PTR (patrol ship) - tiny,
FF (frigate) - small,
DD (destroyer) - medium,
CR (cruiser) - large,
BB (battleship) - huge.
Cargo role is only for cargo hulls and, well, the cargo role:
Colo for colony ship,
Cons for constructor,
Frei for freighter,
Trans for troop transport,
Sens for sensor ship.
You need GalCiv2 version 1.1 and the Collector's Edition stuff to use them. Please update BEFORE you unzip the files.
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.
WARNING: Their .shipcfg-files are sometimes pretty big and this WILL have an effect on your gameplay.
So use them at your own risk!
Hope you like them,
