Without a doubt, 9ofNine's Ambassador is one of the most popular single ship downloads and rightly so for one of the earlier file's on the entire site (September '02) but it has been used in many mod's, kit-bashed, converted. In fact, you name it, it's likely been done to that ship. This is where one of the universal advantages comes from with this texture though; any mod that uses the original Ambassador textures will benefit from this and it's safe to say that that is quite a lot of mods!

The changes are seemingly minor, but well received. Gone is the registry that was found on the different points of the hull and edits to the deflector and nacelles, basically making it a bit sharper. The best addition though, without a doubt, has to be the new Borg textures which litter the craft upon assimilation. Perhaps adding a little too much, it shows how much improvement the vessel would take (well it'd need it, wouldn't it, being however old it is) by covering a lot of the saucer and nacelles with implants.

At the end of the day, this isn't just good if you only have the original Ambassador, as it certainly has a larger purpose, but a lot of well placed effort has gone into this tweak and it's certainly recommendable. In short, it gives a bit more life into a ship past its prime. Definitely worthy of a download.

I like the borg textures and it is a nice model but I want to see some glowing windos too.

I've always had a soft spot for this ship because it is one of the first mods I D/L'd that I could get to work right, lol. Thanks to this mod, I learned the right way to add in a ship to the game. Thanks for the upgrade, Jetfreak!

You Know its to bad that borg texturs don't work like the damage ones. Those would make a great basis for assimalating every ship and station in the fleets!!!
:borg: Rock :thumbsup:
