File Description

This is the Federation Class Starship from the TOS era. It looks similiar to the canon Federation Class (its canon in most people's eyes). Defensively, it's well armed and packs a punch. Offensively, it reminds me of a beefed-up Connie so it's capable of sending a few Klingons to Sto'Vo'Kor early.... Love the design, nice mod...keep up the good work, hopefully the next version of it can have the specular mapping done!

Federation Class Starship mod For ST:Legacy		Created by: Darkblade (aka shadow51689) 3/11/07

********  -Introduction- **********
This mod installs the Federation (aka Dreadnought) Class TOS era ship to Star Trek Legacy.

This would be my first Legacy mod, and only the second Star Trek ship I've ever modeled. With the release of Moonraker's awesome .m3d exporter, I decided I'd try to model some Trek ships for Legacy...
I decided to start with a relatively simple (or so it seemed) ship, one based off of the beloved Constitution in design. I figured I'd 'learn the ropes' so to speak, first with this ship. Plus I never really cared much for the Legacy Proxima (though it does kick butt in battle!)
The ship uses Legacy's stock Constitution textures, so any changes (such as high res packs) made to it, will also be made to the Federation. As a result, the ship is complete with glows and bumpmaps.
The Federation class is a semi-canon ship first conceived long ago in the TOS Technical Manual. It's considered semi-canon as it's never seen or mentioned on screen.
Basically the ship is a more militaristic TOS era starship, based off the Constitution. It's tri-nacelled design is unique, and it boasts improved offense and defensive capabilities.

******** -Installation- **********
-Extract all files.
-Copy F_Federation.odf into your Legacy\odf\Ships directory
-Copy F_Federation.m3d into your Legacy\m3d directory
-Copy all other .dds files into your Legacy\Textures\DDS directory

It's as simple as that.

******** -Known Issues- **********

The damage model isn't completed. Will be included in next version, hopefully including break nodes.
There aren't any unique voices identifying the ships. The next version will include custom voices for each ship name.
Specular maps don't work. (Problem with exporter)

******** -Other Info- *********
I plan to continue work on this ship, and get a fully working damage model working, as well as custom voices. Also, I plan to redesign the front of the engineering hull to make it more canonical (if you can call it that as it's only semi-canon)
I may also release the next version with an auto-installer if desired.

You can expect to see more from me... I already have 2 other starship designs in the works, including an Enterprise-era Intrepid, and a to-be-named Battleship, as well as a TNG era cruiser (Yes, with my own textures this time LOL). Stay tuned!

You may use this ship in a mod, so long as you provide credit to the original author (me). You may not distribute this mod for commercial purposes.
