Here is the third version of the Stargate Pack which includes new ships, stations and even hyperspace. Before you read the readme and description, it should be noted that there are spoilers contained for Season 10 of Stargate SG1 and Season 3 of Stargate Atlantis included in this file.
Of the ships and stations included there are a total of 50+ (including Variants), there are ships for the Asgard, Ancients / Alterans, Humans / Tau'ri, Replicators / Asurans, Ori, Wraith and some of the other less known races. All of the ships have been well made and are highly detailed, highly recommended for any stargate fan. It should also be mentioned that this newer version of the Stargate Ship Pack is NOT compatable with the previous versions of the stargate packs.
There are many new features included in this pack, including the hyperspace where the stargate ships will enter into hyperspace instead of warp and have a completely different entry scene as well as a completely new hyperspace effect. The only down side to this is that the stargate ships won't be able to intercept in normal space at high speeds (since that uses warp). A Replicator Weapon that fires replicators into another ship, causing them to switch to the opposing side in the game. Also included are an Anti Replicator weapon and an emp pulse weapon.
Asgard Ships / Stations
The Asgard Ships include, the Mothership (Beliskner), Mothership Refit, Science Vessel (Daniel Jackson), Prototype Warship (O'Neill) and the Standard Warship
Beliskner - This is the first asgard vessel seen in stargate SG - 1, as seen in the Season 2 episode "Thor's Chariot". This ship is fairly powerful as a Cruiser level ship as it will easily destroy the early ha'taks while taking minor damage. However against more powerful ha'taks such as Anubis's upgraded versions the Beliskner will in all probability lose fairly quickly. There is also a replicator version of this ship which is capable of taking on at least 5 standard versions of this ship. This ship has been well made and is highly detailed.
Beliskner Refit - This ship is similar to that of the Beliskner, but this ship has a slightly different model to match the ship that was seen in the Stargate SG - 1 episode "Revelations" in season 5. The hardpoints are identical to that of the previous version, this ship is more blueish that that of the original. This ship has been well made and is highly detailed.
Daniel Jackson - This ship has had a an addition weapon added to its Arsenal, which is an Anti Replicator Weapon, this will disable any Replicator controlled vessels and destroy any of the ships that are made entirely from Replicator blocks (within 20km). This ship was first seen in the SG-1 episode "New Order". However since this ship is only a science vessel, it won't be as powerful as the main warships within the Asgard Fleet. Saying that this ship is still more than a match for the Goa'uld Ha'tak vessels, although may lose against Anubis's Ha'tak or anything Higher.
O'Neill Class Warship - This ship was seen in several Stargate SG - 1 episodes and named after Colonel / Brigadier General / Major General Jack O'Neill (depending on which season of SG - 1 you watch). This ship is armed with numerous pulse weapons and several ion cannons which can do heavy damage to almost all ships.
This is a very powerful ship that can easily destroy ha'taks, daedalus classes (X304 / BC 304) and many other ships. This ship can also easily take out most star trek vessels, although may struggle against a borg cube or the heavy ships such as a dominion battleship or the excalibur (although this is a tough one to call as both ships won and lost). The O'Neill may struggle against the Replicator Ha'tak as this is slightly too powerful for it.
There is only one ship included from the wraith which is the wraith dart although there haven't been any changes since the last version.
Dart - This ship is fast and is capable of taking on either the F-302 or the Puddle Jumper but this does not mean that it will win. If the Dart gets the first shot then it may have a chance against a F - 302.
Human / Tau'ri Ships / Stations
There are four different types of Earth ship including in the ship pack, the X301, F302 Fighter, X303 (Prometheus), and the BC304. All of these ships are highly detailed and well made with realistic sounds to the series. The X303 and X304 have the ability to Launch F302's giving you the choice of flying the Capital ship or a fighter. There is also one station included, the Midway Station.
X301 - There hasn't been any changes made to this model but is still fun to fly in the game.
F302 - The amount of cannons has been reduced to just one, but has had an increase in its amount of ammunition. Highly recommended in dog fights against the Wraith Dart or Death Gliders. Just to note this ship is very vulnerable to NanoFX explosions and will probably not survive a close explosion.
X303 - Prometheus - This ship has had some minor alterations and hp tweaks to be more look more like it did in the Stargate SG-1 episode "Ethon", the ship is armed with numerous rail guns and missles (standard). This ship is more realistic and detailed than that of the previous version, and also has realistic sounds when compared to the Stargate SG-1 show. There are two addtional versions included, including a Refit Version where it has the ability to transport nuclear weapons and an upgrade version where the fighters launch from underneath.
BC - 304 - This ship has been an improved model and more detailed textures that make the ship look highly detailed and very well made, the ship looks a lot more closer to the version as seen in both SG-1 and Atlantis. There are six (three new ones) different versions included, the Daedalus, Odyssey, Korolev, Apollo, Odyssey Upgrade and Odyssey Refit. Each ship has similar weapons with a few exeptions, such as the Daedalus being able to dual rail guns while the Odyseey and Korlev can only fore single rail guns. The Korolev is a weaker ship due to it being rushed into battle.
-- The newer versions include a more accurate shield colour, slightly more accurate weapons and the addition of a newer weapon. The Odyssey Refit includes the standard weapons, but has a stronger shields and a faster engine because of the Ancient ZPM, while the Odyssey Upgrade has all of the technology included from the Asgard and is powered by the ZPM (Asgard weapons, stronger shields, faster hyperdrive and more).
The Apollo is similar to the unupgraded Odyssey but has one additional weapon, the horizon weapons platform that can be launched via the shuttle launching system. This carries six mark nine warheads and four decoy missiles.
Midway Station - This station doesn't really have any function, it just sits in space and does nothing, so it is relatively easy to destroy but the explosion may cause some damage as there are two stargates in this station which may cause a bigger bang.
Goa'uld Ships / Stations
The Goa'uld ships and stations include the Death Glider, Needle Threader, Al'Kesh, Al'kesh Transport (space train), five different variants of Ha'tak, Anubis Flagship, Apophis's Flagship, Osiris's Personal Cruiser, Pyramid Ship, Tel'Tak Cargo Ship and a Goa'uld Starbase. All of the variant of the Ha'tak with the execption of the replicator version can all launch Death Gliders via MVAM, giving you the choice of flying the Ha'tak or the Death Glider.
Death Glider - This is the orginal model created by ScottPKeene, a ship that can be launched from the Ha'tak. This ship is now balanced towards the F-302. It is highly recommended and very fun to use this in a fight against the F302s, although you may not win all of the time as it depends on who gets the first shot.
Al'kesh Mid Range Bomber - The model and textures have been vastly improved over the previous version and is more detailed. This ship is armed with 2 staff weapons (which can fire in multiple directions) and 2 downward firing bomb launchers. This ship is relatively fast and relatively weak compared to the other stargate vessels. This ship can easily beat F302's, Death Gliders or Wraith Darts one on one (not always though), although against those fighters in numbers this ship would not stand a chance. The Al'Kesh does not stand a chance against any of the capital ships, and mayl do some damage to the either the ha'tak or bc 303.
Needle Threader - a ship that was seen in Stargate SG - 1, Season 3 episode "In To The Fire". This ship is similar to that of a Ancient / Alterran puddle jumper (although very different shape), where it was designed to go through the stargate. The Needle Threader is more manuverable than that of a standard death glider and just as powerful. This ship is more than a match for the wraith dart and possibly the F302, although the latter is more difficult to fight against (depending on who gets the first shot). There is a slight improvement to the cockpit, but other than that this ship is still the same.
Ha'tak (all versions) - Since the last stargate pack, this ship has been given some new hardpoints and a new variant, a new, including more realistic textures that make the ha'tak look more like the shows version . The Replicator version of this ship has been made more powerful than before as it was too easy to take damage. There are four versions included in this mod, the Standard Goa'uld Ha'tak, a refit Ha'tak, Anubis' Ha'tak (The one that destroyed an Asgard Beliskner in "Revelations" (Season 5) and a Replicator controlled Ha'tak as seen in "The Reckoning Parts I and II" (Season 8 - SG - 1). All three of the ships are identical other than their weapons and shields. There is also a version of the early Ha'tak with a cloaking device.
The first type of ha'tak is the standard early Goa'uld version, this one is weaker than that of the X303 and BC 303. This ship can also destroy several small Star Trek vessels but against more manuverable ships such as a bird of prey or defiant it might not be able to hit it a long range. The second type of Ha'tak is a refit version that might have been used within the later seasons of SG-1 under the ranks of the Free Jaffa, this ship would be more powerful than the first but in a one on one fight with the earth ships it may very well struggle.
The third type of Ha'tak, Anubis Ha'tak is more powerful than the first and can take on the X303 or BC 303 although will take damage from it and can possibly take on multiple "heavy" star trek ships (i.e, Galaxies, Sovereigns, etc). Anubis' Hat'ak has been balanced against the Asgard Beliskner meaning it should be able to take it out. The forth type of Ha'tak is the Replicator Controlled Ha'tak, this ship is a lot more powerful and can easily destroy most ships fairly quickly. This ship can possibly take on 4 - 7 standard Ha'taks or more and win. This ship would also easily destroy most Star Trek ships with the exception of a Borg Cube which will more than likely destroy the Ha'tak.
Goa'uld Starbase - Here is the starbase of the Goa'uld as seen in Stargate SG -1 Season 5 episodes "Summit" and "Last Stand", this base is very powerful, this ship can easily take on a medium - large fleet of Ha'taks and even a couple of Asgard ships. This base is highly detailed and well made, however just as a note on slower computers when taking damage this may cause some slow downs to occur in game. This has been retextured for the second stargate pack and adds some improvements to the outsite (i.e. looks a bit better
Apophis's Flagship - Here is the powerful flagship of Apophis stole from Sokar, this ship is far more powerful than that of the ha'taks, the Asgard Beliskner and possibly the earth ships (BC304s). This ship is more than a match for multiple Ha'tak vessels (with the exception of the replicator version), multiple Tau'ri ships, but will struggle against Anubis mothership for firepower. This ship is no match for any of the ships that are far more powerful.
Tel'Tak Cargo ship - This is one of the newer ships to be added to the stargate packs, there are five variants included. The first version includes weak shields and no weapons, so only really good for target practice. The upgrade version includes a cloaking device, good for hide and seak. The modified version is based upon the one seen in the Stargate SG - 1 season 7 final - "The Lost City" where it has a faster hyperdrive, stronger shields and a beam that fires from its underside (not very strong though). The Refit version includes an EMP pulse (as seen in "The Ties That Bind" SG1 episode), which will disable all ships within 20km (even friendlies). The final version from the episode "Bounty" also includes two pulse cannons at the front which might make it worth something in a fight.
Al'Kesh Transport - This is another ship that was seen in "bounty", this is essentially an Al'kesh attached to a transport, the Al'kesh with also has the ability to separate from the transport to move on its own using the MVAM scripts.
Pyramid Ship - This was the first ship to be seen in stargate, this ship has the ability to launch gliders (MVAM) and is only avaliable in the closed up configuration as it was not seen opened out in space. This is the ship that RA had during the original Stargate Movie.
Osiris' Personal Cruiser - Here is another ship as seen in the Stargate SG - 1 episode "The Curse" which is unarmed and only has weak shielding, which makes it only useful for target practice or perhaps RP where you could try to escape from a ship.
Alteran / Ancient ships / Stations
There are two Alteran vessels present in this pack, one is an update to the Puddle Jumper and the other is an Aurora class warship (including a fully powered one and an "orion" version)
Puddle Jumper - This ship is the ship as seen in Stargate Atlantis and three episodes of SG - 1 in Season 8. This ship is highly manuverable (in fact very similar to the show) and can easily avoid shots from the Ha'taks weapons at longer ranges but will get hit close up. The puddle jumper is only armed with 36 Drones which are all very powerful (even more so if you have Future Technologies). The drone weapons have been weakened due to the drones being too powerful. With this upgrade the puddle jumper can now fire three drones at a time (as seen in the very first episode of SGA).
The Puddle Jumper is more than a match for the wraith dart or even six. Although this may seem an uber ship, it is far from it as its hull is very weak in comparison to its weapons as any ship armed with phasers or a few unlucky hits from pulse phasers, distruptors or staff weapons can easily damage its hull. This ship also includes a MVAM mode where the weapons and engines pods are either inside or outside the ship. The weapons can only be fired when they are outside of the Puddle Jumper itself. This ship has also been rescaled and made more accurate to the show.
Aurora Class Warship - Fully Operational - A completely new model since the last version of the stargate pack, which looks more accurate in game when compared to the show. Here is prossibly one of the most powerful ships in the stargate universe (after the Alteran City Ship - Atlantis, and possibly the ori cruiser). This ship can fire lots of drones in rapid succesion, destroying most vessels relatively quickly including an ori cruiser. This ship has been seen in Stargate Atlantis although the "Fully Operational" version has not been seen yet. This ship also includes energy weapons which add more realism to the ship, (as seen in Progeny - SG Atlantis S3). The Ori Cruiser may be able to destroy this ship with its "Main Weapon", although its really dependant on who gets the first shot.
Aurora Class Warship - "Orion" - Here is the Aurora Class warship as seen in SG - Atlantis Season 2 episodes "Inferno" and "Allies" as well as Season 3 episode "No Mans Land". This ship is a damaged version of the Aurora class and does not have enough power to power both the weapons and the shields at the same time (although its possible to have both, just not at full levels). The "Orion" as named by Lt. Colonel John Sheppard, is capable of firing the same weapons as the fully powered version but depending on who it is facing against it may not have a chance to fire a second batch.
Cruiser - This is a ship that was seen in the Stargate Atlantis Season 3 episode "Progeny" - This ship is not completely accurate mainly because it is only seen briefly, it is armed with both drones and energy weapons which are fairly powerful and is capable of taking on an ori ship but may not necessary win against the ori (although the drones will do a lot of damage if used against say the sensors of the ori). This ship is not as strong as the Warship but is more manuverable and adds more ships to Ancients side.
La-Grangia point Defence Satellite - As seen in "The Siege, Pt1", Stargate Atlantis Season 1. There are two versions included, a damaged version (from the episode) which can only fire one shot before going offline and the fully functional version (Ancient version) which can possibly take out fleets of ships which includes shields and a weapon that can fire more than once.
Ori Ships / Stations
Ori Supergate - There are two versions of this one active and one in-active. These do not do much, although it does have MVAM capability to activate the gate. The supergate now with the shuttle launching script is capable of launching upto four ori cruisers that have to be launched individually (as launching all four would cause them to crash into one another). The supergate has been rescaled compared to the last version to make it more to scale with the Ori Warship, the bug where ther game would crash when it took heavy damage has been fixed.
Ori Warship - This ship has been completely remodeled, the textures have been redone, and the hardpoints have been fixed so that the weapons have been realigned and the AI will fire the main weapon more often. This is the true Uber ship, as seen in the Stargate SG - 1 episode camelot (the season 9 finale). This ship is practically a god ship. The Ori main weapon can easily destroy a ha'tak vessel in one shot most of the time and tau'ri vessels in two or three shots. To even have a chance against this god ship you will need a Very large fleet of ships as this ship will destroy most of them with one shot. The secondary weapons although not as powerful as the main cannon can easily destroy mainly types of ships fairly easily with a few shots (maybe 3-10). The only ship that is capable of even having a chance against this ship is the Fully powered Alteran / Ancient Aurora Class warship (not the orion though) and the Asgard refitted Odyssey.
Another addition is the ability for the Ori ship to launch upto 30 fighters and an improved glow in the centre where it isn't as bright as it was before.
Fighter - This is another new ship that has been added to the stargate pack, this ship is possibly slightly more powerful than that of the F302, Death Glider, Puddle Jumper and the Wraith Dart but would make a very interesting dog fight against any of those opponents.
Replicator / Asuran Ships
Command Cruiser - This is the ship that was first seen in the beginning of the Season 8 opening episode "New Order", this ship is essentially made only of replicator blocks but has a fairly powerful weapon which can potentially take over enemy starships simply by firing replicator blocks into an enemy ship causing it to constantly switch sides. This ship may cause some lag issues on slower computers due to its complex design.
Spider Ship - Another brand new addition made for this pack. This ship is in its flight configuration rather than the folded up version on the surface. This ship is similar to that of the command cruiser where it has the replicator weapon.
Stolen Vessel - This is the ship that was seen beating the hell out of Apophis's Flagship in "Enemies". It has a modified version of the point defence script that will allow it to shoot down incoming pulses and missiles.
Asuran Satellite - Here is the satelite that was used to attack atlantis in the episode first strike. It has two modes (unpowered and powered), the unpowered version it has a weak shield and no weapons. In its powered mode (MVAM) it has a very strong shield which can stand up to almost anything (even drones). It also has a very powerful beam weapon that can destroy almost anything.
Modified Beliskner - There is no change from the previous version, it is still a very power opponent to face, there are minor changes to its firing arcs to make it slightly more powerful.
Modified Ha'tak - There are no changes since the last version of the stargate pack, however this ship is a lot more powerful than a standard ha'tak and can easily destroy most ships fairly quickly. This ship can possibly take on 4 - 7 standard Ha'taks or more and win. This ship would also easily destroy most Star Trek ships with the exception of a Borg Cube which will more than likely destroy the Ha'tak.
"Grace Ship" - This is the ship that attacked the prometheus in the SG1 episode "Grace", this ship has powerful weapons and has a MVAM mode to deploy or retract the wings, in order to fire the weapons you need to keep the wings deployed. Other than that there is nothing known about the race who own this ship.
Martin Lloyd's Ship - The ship seen in the episode "Wormhole X-treme". It's balanced somewhere between an Al'kesh and a Ha'tak. It also has an Mvam mode similar to the "Grace" ship that powers it down. This limits the weapons capability, shield strength, speed and manoeuverability.
Pegasus Stargate - This version of the stargate has the ability to launch either one puddle jumper, or three wraith darts, however for this stargate to launch the fighters it needs to be activated via the MVAM.
Milky Way Stargate - Just like the Pegasus gate, only it launches a Needle Threader instead.
All of these ships can be used to re-inact scenes against within Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. This modification pack is highly recommended to any Stargate Fan as it will add a new part to bridge commander.
