Well. . . You've all seen Her and for those of you how frequent [BCC]? Have been drooling over her for the last eight months. Well here she is in "All Her Glory"! The Century Class U.S.S. Enterprise by DJ Curtis!
This is one of the most detailed concept designs, I've seen to date! This is a single ship, not a SDT Ship Pack. But keep in mind, the original textures will "smoke" a low-end PC. And push the limits of even the latest high-end rigs out there. This was the purpose of the Author. The Author has suggestions in the readme to address this.
The Enterprise-F handles very well in game. Having tested her against the Klingons, Romulans, Cardassians. The fight was in the 1701-F's favor. But the Jem'Hadar and the Borg Collective is more than a match for this concept design. Though she gave as good as she got! lasting 15 minuets with c2x's BOBW Borg Cube?! She's not a God ship- But well balanced for in game play.
Armed with custom torpedoes, and excellent phaser arcs. The Enterprise-F will be a welcome addition to any one's Federation inventory. I "HIGHLY" recommend this exceptional concept of the 1701-F! Paramount Art Department & Producers take notice!
Definitely Download Worthy!!
Title: Century Class Filename: Century.zip Version: 1.0 Date: 9/9/07 Author: DJ Curtis Contact: PM at Bridge Commander Universe or Bridge Commander Central Requirements: NanoFX2.0B, Elminster's Common Weapons Pack v.3.0, BC 1.1 patch, KM 1.0 (recommended) Additional: Blank Registry textures coming soon. Description ----------------- This mod includes one ship: USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-F. Originally, there was to be three ships in a pack, however, because it would have greatly increased the download size, I have instead decided on releasing the ships separately. The USS Century and USS ________, As it is, this ship is very high end. It is a high polygon mesh, with very large textures. I basically designed it in such a way as to capitalize on the capabilities of my own hardware, which is in the upper mid-range. In the beta tests, no performance issues were raised unless there was numerous Century Class ships in the battle arena. if you encounter significant performance issues when using the ship, do the following: COPY THE .tga FILES IN THE 'MEDIUM' Folder in '/DATA/MODELS/SHIPS/ENTERPRISEF' TO THE HIGH FOLDER This will change the primary textures to 1024x1024 instead of 2048x2048, meaning that your graphics card will only have to process 20mb of texture data instead of 80mb. This will be very important for those of you running120mb or 64mb graphics cards out there. Please don't contact me regarding performance issues with the ship. I am aware that it won't be smooth on older rigs. The ship is built to exploit the most modern hardware. Though some other suggestions I have if you have high performance problems would be to reduce AA and AF levels. That will help a lot. Included in the .zip package is a file called 'Enterprise F Technical and Historical Documentation'. I encourage you to read it. It cites all the ship's canon specification and capabilities. It also has some great submissions on the ship's technology from some dedicated members of BCC. I've spent the better part of seven months developing this mod in my free time. My Children have forgotten who I am because of it ;) Please, if you don't like it, don't publicly bash it. If you do like it, please say so.
