File Description

This is first of many such attempts we'll see at this ship, the ST:XI version of Kirk's Constitution Class USS Enterprise. While it's certainly a good start, it's not quite perfect. The nacelles and their supports aren't quite right, the textures are combined from three separate sources (and none of them have quite the right shading), and the parts of this ship we have yet to see in any meaningful way (notably the shuttlebay) are almost detail-free. But the as-yet-unknown modder Sin87 does a fairly good job of trying to capture the spirit of the new design.

One of the pitfalls of making this ship, at the present time, is the obvious lack of any 3D models or even high-res screencaps from which to proceed. That doesn't seem to stop several of our modders who are working on the same set of screencaps and pictures we've seen to date, and their enthusiasm for rendering every last canon design --including this one-- is admirable. Hopefully it's only a matter of time before a newer version of this, with corrections made thanks to the constructive criticism of this community and comments in the section below, is made available here for Armada.

Definitely worth a download.

:cool:

DISCRIPTION
***********
Here's the brand new version of the Constitution class that is set to appear in J.J. Abrams
re-imagined Star Trek. I wasn’t originally going to build & released as the new Enterprise,
but as her class' predecessor. When the second trailer was released last week I noticed that
my design ideas such as the secondary hull stretching out were almost identical to the new
Enterprise so I figured why make my original when I could make a few small changes & have
the new beauty. As a side bonus I can later take elements from here or a newer version &
add them to that model for continuity.

Some of the changes I made were changing the TOS nacelles to newer Trek XI versions & changing
the secondary hull from a more Daedalus class that appears to be a design super sized airlock
at the aft for docking to space stations.

Though I believe that the thrusters on the back of the saucer & the aft shuttle bay are the
same model as the TOS version. I’ve left the TOS thrusters as they were already part
of the original model, but as for the shuttle bay it's very basic curve less area as I think
it's a little smaller in the new version than the big 3-4 deck beast of TOS & TMP.

I won't be changing the aft hull until more images become available as it would be a waste of
time trying to identify small details that that for now are not seen & as such would most
likely to be wrong & ultimately end up having to be changed or even removed for a totally
new section.

I will most likely release a modified version of the original ship & an updated version of this
Enterprise when there's more reference material available to work from.

INSTALLATION
************
1. UnZip the file into your Armada 2 main directory
2. Open your gui_global.spr in the misc folder and scroll down to where is says

	# Federation buildbuttons
	@reference=128

copy this right below the "@reference=128" line

b_hf1701XI		gbYoungKirk	0	0	128	128
b_fCstit1XI		gbfCstit1XI	0	0	128	128

then find the line "@reference=256" & copy this right below it

	# Federation wireframes
	@reference=256

then right below copy & paste this right below it

hf1701XIw1		whf1701XI	0	0	256	256
hf1701XIw2		whf1701XI	0	0	256	256
hf1701XIw3		whf1701XI	0	0	256	256
hf1701XIw4		whf1701XI	0	0	256	256
hf1701XIw5		whf1701XI	0	0	256	256

fCstit1XIw1		wfCstit1XI	0	0	256	256
fCstit1XIw2		wfCstit1XI	0	0	256	256
fCstit1XIw3		wfCstit1XI	0	0	256	256
fCstit1XIw4		wfCstit1XI	0	0	256	256
fCstit1XIw5		wfCstit1XI	0	0	256	256

3. Open tech1.tt in the techtrees folder and add the line

fCstit1XI.odf	0	// Constitution Phase I Class - Star Trek XI Version
hf1701XI.odf	0	// USS Enterprise NCC-1701 - Star Trek XI Version

4. Open one of your shipyard files (fyard.odf, fyard2.odf) & add the following line to the
build section. Remember the "x" at the end of "buildItemX" should be replaced with the number
that follows the last build item in that yard build list.

buildItemX = "fCstit1XI"
buildItemX = "hf1701XI"

5. Now just play & when you go to the shipyard which you told to build her will now be able to
construct this vessel.
