New Sabre class
Apparently this is a new Sabre class. This is NOT the same model as the existing class, so don't expect it to look the same. Also, the complete absence of a readme seems to indicate this is a first attempt. I'm assuming this is the reason why no credits are offered, and I hope I'm right. In addition to not sending a readme or credits, the build button, the wireframe, and the admiral's log pic are all absent. So some modding experience will be required.
As to the model itself.... ignore the registry and accept that the textures look a little.... angular for a Starfleet vessel, and the design itself isn't that bad. The author compared it in the description (which I've copied AS the readme below) to "great ships like the Century and Valiant". This makes a lot of sense, especially considering the Sabre itself filled some other obsolete vessel's role in the fleet, so it too would eventually need an upgrade.
The author promises a full 1.0 version in a couple weeks' time. Perhaps someone from the community might want to give captainmacgyver a few tips and pointers about what to do next with this promising work in progress.
Worth a look.
I decided the good ol' saber class needed to be updated...you know, with the release of great ships like the century and valiant. I figure I'd try to give the saber a fighting shot.
this is the 0.9 release. I'm waiting a week to wrap up anything i may have missed and not noticed right away. Soon youll have the full 1.0 finished. Use it in whatever mod you like, but i would suggest waiting the week for the full 1.0, and to give credit.
TEH'S, OT'S, AND JSUT'S !
also, the odf is unbalanced. rebalance as you deem fit ppl!
hardpoints 1-10 are each individual phaserbanks (there are 10. you dont have to use em all, but its set to use 2 at a time as is)
11 and 12 are the 2 foward torps, and 13 is the spare located in the dish.
all weapons already incorporated in the ship's odf are all saber class weapons, except the point defense lazer.
