Pizza the Hutt returns with a further refit and refinement of an old design of his: the Saratoga class battlecruiser. From Pizza:
This is the third release of the Saratoga class. The rollbar has been replaced by one that is more elegant and so have so pylons that connect the nacelles to the rest of the ship. The torpedo launchers were scaled down, because I found them to be out of proportion. The textures of the back part have been changed to be more crisp and clear and the shuttle bay in the back is now clearly visible. The greatest change was removing the engineering section. I think this makes the ship more look like its precedessor, the Miranda Class. I decided to put the deflecor dish into the pod on the rollbar, first because I didn't want to get rid of it, second because I had scaled down the torpedo launchers and the pod looked too small, and third because I saw other ships of similar designs. I also added three more strobelights.The wireframe now has a transparent background. There are lightmaps and the borg textures have also been improved. Also corrected a typo in the readme file.
Definitely worth a download if you have a previous version, or even if you're just discovering this one for the first time.
