This vessel has very smooth and sleek lines. It fits in the timeline post intrepid, obviously inspired by the design as well as dominion technology as apparent with the nacelles. The textures are large and well detailed, with fine details such as hull lines, markings, thrusters, life pods, and other essentials in crystal clear quality only 2048 maps and 10000+ poly can give. I'm sure you will enjoy this ship.
Title : Vivace Class Filename : Vivace.zip Version : 1.0 Date : 10/29/06 Author : DJ Curtis Contact : PM at Bridge Commander Universe or Bridge Commander Central Requirements : NanoFX 2.0B, Elminster's Common Weapons Pack v.3, BC 1.1 patch Additional : Blank Registry Textures are Included Description ------------ This mod includes three ships... USS Vivace---> Prototype ship. Slightly more slugish and slower to accelerate. Weaker shields. Has only photon torpedoes. NX-91809 She is also somewhat underpowered as "not all the bugs have been worked out." Phasers also recharge a bit slower. USS Schumann-> First production ship of the Vivace Class. Very manueverable for a ship of its size. In combat, Schumann NCC-91810 is a bit more than a match for a Galaxy Class starship, and can even give Supremus a bloody nose, though ultimately it lacks the overall firepower to be considered one of Starfleet's top contenders in a fight. USS Chopin---> Second production ship of the Vivace Class. it's capabilities are comparable to the Schumann, though it is NCC-91815 just slightly more manueverable, and can fire it's phasers 10km further in range. *****Commissioned in 2387, the first three Vivace Class starships represent a return to the explorative roots of Starfleet. At a size of roughly 400 meters, they are multi-mission starships that fill the roles once served by Excelsior and Constellation Class ships. The Vivace Class's exploration mandate is visually evident from the ship's large sensor panels. The Vivace Class has a respectable compliment of weapons and other defensive systems. With phasers on par with its more powerful cousin, Supremus, as well quantum torpedo launchers fitted on producion run versions of the ship, Vivace Class is a product of the lessons learned in the Dominion War.***** I worked hard on this mod and I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I do. I decided that by now, many people will have graphics cards capable of efficiently running 2048 textures, so I have set them as the default, however if you have trouble with these, 1024 and 512 textures are also included. Alternatively you can use a photo editor like Paint Shop or Photoshop to resize the "High" folder textures to 1024 x 1024. Though I have to say that playing at at 2048 will really bring out the details on the ship.
