Description: 

This is the first released Excalibur modification with WORKING specular textures. All previous versions 
had incorrect pathways, even if the specular textures were included. 

I created this mod because the Excalibur is my favourite ship and I wanted to create my own take on it. 
Whilst Bridge Commander handicapped my wants with its limitations a little when it came to the 
hardpoint, I think I got this ship how I want it or as close to it as possible, hope you enjoy using it.
I have improved the ships phaser arcs, firing strings and added some side-mounted pulse-phasers on two
of the varaints (they are huge ships) as well as new photons & quantums.

If you have any performance issues then try lowering your settings. If it still stutters then its
probably your PC being too old. If you want half the size of the textures and you may gain some performance.
When lowering your settings, remember if you choose anything other than -high- texture quality there isn't
a folder named -Medium- or -Low- in -data/models/ships/Excalibur Atlantic- so you should copy all the 
textures in the -High- folder to a -Medium- or -Low- folder depending on what setting you choose. 

Unfortunately, for the speculates to work correctly for all variants of this ship, I needed to include three 
sets of textures, and so making a large file size. If people ask I may release the variants separately
at a later date.

Requirements:
Its a safe bet to have all these before you try my mod:

NanoFX2.0B, Mleos Skinning and damaging tool (SDT), Mleos submenu mod, NanoFX2.0B, 
Elminsters Common Weapons Pack v.3.0, BC 1.1 patch.

over at BCC- cheers guys).

Also thanks to Intrepid90 over at BCC who tested it before release!

And thanks to all the modders that made this mod possible with their own invaluable mods.

Installation Instructions:

1. Extract the scripts, data, ShipTGLs and sfx folders to your BC directory

2. You may have to disable the -fix bright glow bug- in the NanoFX -Explosions- options (in-game) 
   to see the speculars.

3. If the ships names show up in the menu and in-game as -???- then open up the 
   -scripts/Custom/Ships/SBExcaliburName- files and then change -...hasTGLName = 1- to -...hasTGLName = 0-
   and it should work thereafter.
