Hello all, I have a quick question for you, the community. For the past month or so i have been working on a Federation fleet that uses the stock models and textures(unedited ones) to make all the models, so far I have only a few that are complete, and I will show them to you in a second, but I want to ask if you think that i should release this little minimod. So what sayith the community?
Now for the pictures with the ships names and what parts they are using to follow it: Bottom Left Corner: Durdam Class, Sovy Saucer, Akira Extension and pylons, with an Akira Deflector array, and Sovy Nacelles. Next Ship from there: Seelholf Class, Sovy Saucer, Galaxy Engineering Hull, and Akira Nacelles. Next one going upwards: Viselli Class, Intrepid Saucer, Nebula Secondary Hull (with pylons flipped up), and Sovy Nacelles. Continuing Upwards: Tolus Class, Defiant (rather Serpent) Hull, akira Deflector Array, Sovy Pylons, and Galaxy Nacelles. under the Viselli Class: Akra Class, Akira Saucer and Deflector Dish, sovy secondary hull and Galaxy Nacelles. Last ship: Rapier Fighter, Venture hull, Defiant Nacelles, and Akira Torpedo Launcher.
This is only part of the fleet, I still need to work on my other ships, which include varients of the Sabre and Steamrunner, so stay tuned to this thread.
erm... Well, what to say really!! In all honesty, there is only one that I like, and that the Pathfinder look-alike! - Sorry! Although these are nice, and well thought up kitbashes, they just look ugly! :(
Edit: The Pathfinder look-alike could do with a wider / longer Saucer section too... Edit: Pathfinder look-alike = Durdam Class
Please PM me as I think I could put these modles to good use in my Dark Reflections MOD, if you are willing to let me ..... NB I think they are great, my point would be lower the neck on the galaxy glass one, otherwise great.
as soon as the entire fleet is completed, I will be putting it up for download, also I will PM you at that time asking for an email addy to send them to.
@SSA, Dont worry about saying that, you arent the first one... I understand that some of them are extremely ugly, but Im just giving the community something to play with while waiting for the big mods to come out, like FT and BI:VR to only name two.
Just remember everyone, I that I am using the stock textures and models for all these ships, this is because it will take up less memory to download for you 56kers out there, and again, to fill in some time for people that are waiting for the big stuff.
The cake is a lie.There is no cake.

The Durdam class look's good. I like it, probabaly because the Trafalgar is almost the same :P No worries, that look's cool.
The Viselli I like and the Rapier I especially like, I would put that in a bigger mod, besides, the textures on high res will make it look better!
EO, i've just had a second look, and there is another ship that *could* be slightly improved, that being the Viselli Class, I think (given a more sleak saucer) would look good. I see it with a more Sovereign / Intrepid saucer than I do Akira...
Not bad considering you used stock textures. Good job.

SSA, the Viselli is the ship with the Intrepid Saucer, Nebula hull and nacelle supports flipped with the sensor/weapons pod on top, and the Sovy nacelles. thats what i like about that ship.
I like Viselli...
Well, I don't usually like kitbashes, but these do look pretty good. The only thing that detracts from it is they're all Fed. Do you have any other races kitbashed? I mean, yeah, the Feds are cool but I think there're enough of 'em. You could put your (obvious) talent to creating ones for the other races. Still, I would use these models in my game.
