Guys take a look at this picture. I want to give credit to whoever made this design. I think i found it on desktopstarships.com
This is a marvelous picture...would fit in nicely in the BC universe but I suppose no one should make it unless they had permission from that person...What do you guys think of it?
Definately cool. Would be nice is someone made it for BC, but where are the weapons on this thing? I could guess there are torpedo launches hidden by the ship's angle, but I don't see any phaser banks. :confused: :rock:
Maybe it's a strictly torpedo ship, or maybe the phaser banks are hidden beneath the hull exterior...it looks pretty futuristic to me..maybe they found a way to hide the phaser system in the future. When ships scan the ship, they wont notice that they're there, and then all of a sudden, out of no where, a phaser beam cuts through the other ship's warp core..lol
That's only speculation but it would be cool..doesn't look like a big ship to me..maybe a medical ship, or a exploration vessel..I wish i could ask the one that made it but I hesitate to do so..I just won't feel comfortable..
Yeah, I'd have to agree with you that the ship is small. Doesn't look like it could support a big crew with only a few escape pods. The phaser idea was really cool. Hopefully someone will make this ship and we'll find out. :lol:
I'm sorry but that ship is WAY too ugly!
As the credits say that ship is by Hobbes(Rcick Snider), that mesh is one of many available available for download at SciFi-Meshes.com
As far as using it for BC, like already mentioned, youll have to talk to him, you can find him through the fourms at SciFi-Meshes, on the forums his name is simply Hobbes
I got permission from hobbes to find someone to rebuild some of his stuff is low poly for the games. That diligent is a few hundred thousand poly, but I agree, it's defenetly ugly. But it still kicks ass.
Well, I think it looks awesome. That's the corvette of Star Trek right there. :agreed:
Hey all :) Thanx for the feedback about the Diligent :) Positives and negatives both :)
I primarily designed it as a scout ship, somewhat smaller than a Defiant Class (easier, cheaper to construct)...not much in terms of weapons, but even though it has fewer teeth, what it does have are sharp ;) A single hybrid pulse-phaser, and quantum/photorp launcher are almost all it has.
As for preparing the Diligent for a mod, I'd inquire to a Hollis J Wood on www.taldren.com, for I know he was doing a very good job with his BC Diligent :) He might be of great help to you...and any other way I can help, I'd be most happy.
wow, ure a really nice guy.
