File Description

This is an updated version of my vision of the USS Monitor, which I released on BCFiles a few years ago. I originally created my ship to have lighter textures than the one in the Shatner novels (which Keab42 actually created & released). However, after a closer examination of Keab42's textures, I realized that his are truly amazing textures! As such, with his permission, I am re-releasing my version of the USS Monitor with a modified version of Keab42's textures. Now, the front of the warp nacelles have a slight violet glow to match that of the deflector array. I think you will find this ship to be the most canon [if a ship from a Star Trek novel can be even considered canon ;-) ] version of the USS Monitor to date. This is the one I will use from now on in my own personal installation of BC, and I hope you will too. :-)

Credits: Same as in my below original readme file, except with the addition of textures by Keab42, which were modified by me - Mod_Mongerer.

USS Monitor - Defiant Class Starship

............................

Description:

The Defiant class USS Monitor, from the Shatner Star Trek novels.  This Uss Monitor is a combination of a number of mods, including 9 of 9's Defiant, BlackRook32/Elminster's Defiant class USS Avenger, and Scott P. Keene's excellent USS Monitor textures.  Scott posted his textures on BCU a few years ago, but no mod was ever released using them.  After Keab42's recent USS Monitor release, it put me in the mood to release my own version of the USS Monitor, using the great mods listed in this readme.  Basically, I edited Scott's textures a little, combined them with the USS Avenger, did some renaming, added a cloaking device, and wallah - you have the USS Monitor!

Let me say that this mod was in no way created to downplay Keab42's excellent version of the USS Monitor.  Keab42's is actually more canon to the book than this release, with the fact that his textures are REALLY REALLY dark.  I've been using this USS Monitor that I compiled from other mods for a while now, mainly because I like the slightly brighter textures.  This ship is definitely darker than your typical Defiant class ship, and the ship's hull can still get REALLY dark with the correct lighting angles (as the included pics show), but it also includes some more glows, lighter textures (thus it's easier to see, and admire, during gameplay), and a bit more texture detail.
