Well as I plan on making a B5 mod because its simply too good a series and subject to not have a Legends mod. Also,it happens to be the mod I really want to play. In any event please let me know if you see any reasonable B5 ship images,if it would make your cut it will be good. The main problem that I see regarding ship images comes with there being so few top down views,is there a reasonable program where you can generate a 3D image from an oblique reference image? Then grab a top down view off the 3D image?

You should try B5 mod for Star Trek Armada 2
I am fairly certain the ships there were decent. Also you might check out other games like Sins of Solar Empire for similar mods. You'll need to spend some time on converting the ships to DW but you can do it with cutting from screenshots, without using any 'complicated' software.

Hi kalt,
Even if I don't post here, I look regulary at works of the community for my own mod, yours is especially good, but not everything is available right now, your race images (gamefront link is dead, and if there a new one, pls show me, I must've missed this one), can you reupload this pls ? You also should edit your dedicated thread by updating the link. thanks

Sorry for doing it after so much delay, but I've found, ordered and uploaded the old ships from this thread. I've posted the link in the download section of my shipyards thread (link). :]

Hey Kalthaniell (any other modders), I've used your mods in DW and I wanted to know if you'd be interested in providing your ship art to a digital version of a space 4x boardgame that is being developed by GMT (other thread: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=3283559).

Sorry this is kind of a repost but I wanted to see if you specifically could help us out. Feel free to PM me thanks in advance!

It would be a slow process, but, if you also own "Galactic Civilizations 2" you could use it's custom ship builder to make your ships and rotate them to take a picture (screen capture) of them from the top down view-point that DW uses. Then you'd need the art software to scale down your screen capture and crop the pic to the right sizes (photoshop should work).

It would be a slow pain in the rear to do but in theory it should work just fine.

I just came across these and it appears the links no longer work. Would it be possible to upload these to a new location? Thank you!
