Big ISD

Author File Description
Ykkrosh Big ISD (requires Clone Campaigns and Mod Installer v0.80 or later)

by Ykkrosh (ykkrosh@zaynar.demon.co.uk)

This mod replaces the (E) Air Cruiser with a large Star Destroyer -- it's about as large as is possible for a single unit, although it's actually slightly too large and sometimes vanishes when it's too far off the edge of the screen (but not badly enough to be particularly annoying, I hope...)

The firing animation is the same as that of the normal Air Cruisers, which doesn't fit in with the new ISD graphics; there's no currently-known way to make it use proper turbolaser weaponry, and I can't imagine how to make a Star Destroyer fire a big green ball realistically. It is therefore best as non-attacking eye-candy in space battles.

Many thanks to Topa of SciFi-3d (http://www.theforce.net/scifi3d) for creating the very nice (and low-poly) model -- your work is immensely appreciated :-)

The Big ISD Mod By Ykkrosh - Overall Score: 4.5

Graphics - 5.0

The graphics in this mod were just breathtaking. There was an incredible amount of detail put in and it looks just as realistic as any other unit in the game. Bravo to scifi 3D for this great model :)

Usefulness - 4.0

This is a fairly useful mod. It means that you can create more realistic Empire-based scenarios and have a realistic looking battle fleet. The Star Destroyer no longer looks stupidly out of scale compared to the measly TIEs, but now towers over them, and looks deadly. However, since Star Destroyers are air units, they will not be used in custom scenarios as much as other units.

Impact: RM And DM - 5.0

This is superb, and really fun to use in a RM game. The old imperial air cruisers looked stupid, and were far too small to look dominanat in space battles. Now you can have huge, epic space brawls with the biggest, baddest ship from the Star Wars saga :)

Overall - 4.5

A great mod that fulfils its purpose well, and is lots of fun, but was not needed that desperately in the first place. I say well done to Ykkrosh :)

I love it.

Additional Comments:
Graphics - stunning. they look just like any unit from the game, just a lot bigger. It fits right in.

Usefullness - very useful for multiplayer, scares the pants of any opponent tht can see it. I was playing with my brother and he saw 4 of them coming and he almost wet himself.

Overall - this is great, and i have it installed on both my computers. I would definetly suggest this to anyone.
