Romulan BC from SFC1 and SFC2/OP
« on: January 09, 2014, 02:48:57 am »
I posted this question in the model area, but also thought I'd ask in here.  Couldn't hurt.

Does anyone remember the Rom BC in the stock games?  I think it was called the Shadow Class?  Does anyone know if anyone ever made a higher poly version?  Trying to track one down.
The pen is truly mightier than the sword.  And considerably easier to write with.

There is no "Shadow Class" for Romulans in the game, at least not in their classification system.  Since the Romulans have three main designs to choose from and several of their CA's can be classed as "Battle Cruisers" you will have to be a little more specific. The only ships listed as "Battle Cruisers" in the shiplist for the Roms are the K7R, K7RB and the KCR (Heavy Battle Cruiser). All of these are the standard Klingon D6/7 design.

I still have the stock models, yes. I never got into the whole model thing.

Actually I think Corbomite is at least partially correct.  All of those games used the Klingon designs for the Romulans as a reflection of the time when the Klingon design was the ship of choice for that race.
There are some higher poly designs out there.  But I cannot for the life of me remember who they were.  Sorry, but I have been out of the loop for a while.

Did P-81's work include up-scaled Klingons?  (sorry ..... having a senior moment here!)

You talking about the Romulan vessel with the D'Deridex Warbird head and triangular rear?

If I am reading you right you are talking about the KCN model for the Rom BB. I always wished I'd asked someone to put that head on the new Rom dreds. That pointy beak they have just looks awful, but with the KCN head on them they would look a lot like the D'Deridex we know from the show.

You mentioned the models being redone. I don't think they were done over but I do believe the model you asking about was retextured a little better than the stock textures.

Something like that, yeah.  It does that the warbird head.  Here's a link to an Armada converted model.  I should have posted it before.  I can't think like a modeler anymore these days.  Been out of the loop too long.

Undeniably someone's model added to the ship list.  Sorry but I cannot remember whose.

Just from the shape and configuration I'd say that is a Firehawk hull which was used for many different configurations including the pocket dreds.

If someone has some more picts I will give it a shot !  the finished product will be 3DS that you can reformat as you desire.

Why not just DL it from that site, then you can see it in 3D if you have the right program.

If you're looking for the native-hull Heavy Battlecruiser (C7/BCF equivalent), what you want is the "heavy hawk" series: NovaHawk, Killerhawk, RoyalHawk. See if that does it for you?

The NovaHawk and RoyalHawk are CCH's. The only reason they are that high in BPV is the cloak cost. The KillerHawk is a pocket Dred or "Super Heavy Cruiser" as they call it. The C7/BCF equivalent is the KCR. He's looking for the Battle Cruiser equivalent, which would be the one of the several FireHawk, RegalHawk or FlameHawk series. With that said, all of these ships (except the KCR) are on the FireHawk hull.

Slightly different nacell placement, but I still think that it is a sleeker version of this:
























Adam's top one looks a lot like the scout ship from The Defector, or am I remembering wrong?
