I've just started modding for sfc3 and have made my first ship, it's an ambassador class, converted and modified from bridge commander. See what you think. for some screenshots, check the AmbassadorBS, VL and TI bitmaps in the rar file. (PS. There is a slight problem. In the small picture in the lower left of the hud, the weapon pictures are in incorrect places. Help with this problem would be a[color=black]ppreciated. You'll see what I mean if you test it ingame.)[/color]
[color=black]Installation instructions:[/color] [color=black]1.) Extract the 'Ambassador' folder from the rar file to the Assets/models directory of Sfc3[/color] [color=black]2.) Add this to your Assets/Specs Customloadout.txt file: (without the quotes) [/color]

It should show up in the game as a variant of the galaxy. [/color]
It's actually one of the prettier Ambassador models I've ever seen. The blue add a nice touch to the ship. I've downloaded it, and will add it to the game. A word of advice: try to upload it to SFC3files.com( that would be starfleetcommand3.filefront.com Because if you just post it to the forums, hardly anyone will d/l it. I know, I tried that with my Terran Empire Lexington, and it got a whole 5 downloads last time I checked :rolleyes:
Moved to appropriate forum...
I know what your problem is with the hardpoint placement on the HUD. You need a file named "Ambassador.gf" that contains the coordinates for all of the hardpoints on the VL and TI image. This file also contains glow group information, but I never mess with glow groups. The ships look good without them. Here's a .gf file I created to use with another Ambassador Class that I downloaded last month. It didn't contain a .gf file either. Just change the name to "Ambassador" and .txt to .gf.
Proton, I like your work. We need good modelers for Unity. You interested? Huge prroject coming soon.
If so, PM me.
