So how does everyone feel about this? For those who like the JJVerse, it's a great chance to see how the AR ships do against other races. For those who hate it, well, what could be more fun than blowing them up? I'm thinking the JJ ships would be heavier on weapons, but maybe weaker on shielding or something like that. The same thing might be done with the mirror universe.
Just use teh star wars fleet command mod, and slap trek ships into it with SW guns, boom you have a JJverse ship.

Lol. True, very true.
Undedavenger I'm sure your around long enough to know how most of the community feels about the JJ designs. For me I never really had any problems with the ships or the concept of the movie for that matter. I've always been an open-minded kind of guy and the movie(everything in it)actually makes sense if you know what your expected to know so to better appreciate the movie, however you can expect some heads to turn away from this. It's life, not everyone sees things in the same manner sometimes. All in all though you really should'nt let that stop you from doing this if this is what you really want to do. ;)
I didn't care much for the JJ Trek, not because of what they changed, but because of what they didn't change. We still had the same lame-o plot. I personally hate the whole idea, but I'll wait and see if they do something actually ORIGINAL in the next film. If it is good, I'll stay interested. I just thought a mod featuring the various ARs would be kinda cool to play or play against. JJTrek, Mirror Universe, maybe even the 31st Century reality. The Federation sides play the same, but the focus is different, with one having more powerful weapons, another with more powerful defensive capabilities, one with more powerful specials.
Balance wise I think the Trek and Abrams differnces would be thus:
Trek Federation: more balanced, their ships can survive to get repaired more easily
Abrams Federation: focused on firepower, but more easily destroyed
Someone grab me a link (or make/upload it) for Abramsverse ships, (ready to paste into an install and play) and I'll add it to the SWFC (star wars) mod and post some SSs, and a breif .rar of the changed files.
You can use my ships if you want. Maybe I'll make some more when I got time.
