anjel's VESTA CLASS ship pack

Post by anjel »

Hello fellows !!!!
I´m glad to show you a new model i´ve been working for the last month, The VESTA CLASS. I took it from the Destiny books, it´s an interesting novel, i fully recommend it. The most important info about this vessel it`s the quantum slipstream drive, it Mark XII phasers cannons and it was designed basically for deep multi-mission exploring and more.
Here you can watch some pictures:

And to thunderchero for the suggestions and final conversion.

Live long and prosper

Looks good.Seems kind of like a mixture of a Sovereign class and an Intrepid class.

Very cool, anjel! As someone who's also a big fan of the Destiny/Lost Souls trilogy, I'm quite appreciative of this. :)


I do have to ask, though: With the Vesta possessing the slipstream drive, shouldn't she have a faster speed than 1? I'd have thought you'd want to give her a speed of at least 3 to reflect how much quicker she is than most conventional ships.

Martok, -1 allows you to cover any distance within range in 1 turn, so if you have range to the other side of the galaxy, you can be there in 1 turn with the Vesta ;)

Thank you Martok, you are correct, as said Tethys, you must put a speed of -1, so the ship can travel between range in one turn at any distances.

I agree, those screenshots don't do your ship justice. I downloaded it and added it to my game and found that it was far more beautiful than i had previousely thought.

Just brilliant :lol:

well, i´ve been slowly working on the vesta reffiting, there are more images around the web, so i can make a more accurate texture, use common shared texture and modify the mesh to make it more realistic.
Here are some pics, so i don´t know when i´ll release it, but the progress goes smooth... :D


Maybe you won´t notice any changes :lol: but they´re there 8O
Live long and propser
