    Evening Captains.

    I grabbed several quick Vanity Shield screenies of the Nova on the tribble test server. I Apologise it is not every angle or shield. Fighting a massive headache atm so it is difficult to look at a computer screen.

    Finally!

    So, big party when?
    When it finds its way to Holodeck rather than the Test server!
    Dude.. FINALLY!

    It was really getting annoying watching other ships get their 2nd or 3rd re-texture while the Nova just wallowed in obscurity.

    The new model looks fantastic. At least they finally did it justice.

    Couldn't agree more, on both counts. I mean, its as I said a few posts back, am delighted to see it at long last (will be even more delighted when it finds its way onto Holodeck) but I can't help but have a strong sense of 'better later than never'. I realise it sounds ungrateful, but it's difficult not to think that the only reason it finally received this attention was that they have very few canon ships left that needed this treatment.

    Man, that thing looks great with the S31.

    But then again, I am a sucker for that shield. :lol:

    Thank you for the pics @foxman00

    I'm going to need that appointment at the eye infirmary on the 18th as I can't believe my eyes. A Nova model update.

    Yeah - I couldn't believe it either. It's been such a long wait, with so much false hope. Always said I wouldn't believe it until I saw it.

    Saying that, no sign of a T6 version yet and we have no idea when this might find it's way to Holodeck/the C-Store.

    ...well, I'll be damned.

    Well, that's one half of the clamoring horde appeased (hopefully). Let's see if they appease the other and show us a T6.

    Fingers crossed before that! Because to be honest, seeing/flying the new model on Tribble really highlights what an outdated, poor quality, mess the 'current' model is!

    I'm appeased - more or less. I've always said I was more concerned about the Nova having a remaster over possible stats. I just hope that it doesn't take ages for them to release it, in whatever form, onto Holodeck.

    Congrats Reyan - glad to see you'll finally be getting your ship. I'm definitely going to pick up one even if it's just to prove the ship has been wanted THIS WHOLE TIME!!!!

    Well, I'll ba damned... That IS a job well done!
    Fingers crossed it comes to the Holodeck soon - hopefully, as a T6 right from the start. But still, this face lift was long overdue!

    Not agreeing with someone doesn't give you the right to be an TRIBBLE.

    Ci sono tre tipi di giocatori:
    - quelli a cui non va mai bene niente... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che sono talmente imbesuiti da credere a qualunque cosa i dev dicano, perfino che la luna è fatta di formaggio... e vanno sul forum a trollare;
    - quelli che credono a quello a cui è giusto credere, sono d'accordo con quello con cui è giusto essere d'accordo e sono critici con quello che non va;

    Ai giocatori dei primi due tipi, gratis in omaggio un bello specchio lucente su cui arrampicarsi. E una mazzata in testa per la loro poca intelligenza e compassione verso gli altri giocatori che non la pensano come loro.
    Agli appartenenti al terzo tipo, invece, dico grazie. Anche se non sempre si riesce a mantenere la calma, siete quelli per cui vale la pena incazzarsi.

    Just to note/make it clear, these are all from the Tribble Test Server - model is not live on the main server and is likely still a WIP.

    Also, fantastic work by the ship team. I can't wait to get my hands on this baby when it goes live. Fingers crossed for a T6 scout to be the icing on this particular cake.

    Me too - I haven't really logged into Holodeck in the past 24 hours. Have been too busy gawping at the remodelled Nova!

    Yeah - daft as it sounds, it took me a little while to get my head around the fact I was finally looking at a remodelled Nova. It was wonderful, logging into Tribble and seeing the remodelled ship behind my character in the character select screen too!
    WOOT. Ya get a big, congratulatory hug from me, Reyan :)

    Appreciated! But I almost feel like I should apologise really! I mean, I didn't DO anything other than create threads (going back to 2014) and voice opinions! And I don't think those opinons really made much difference to anything, although I guess we'll have to wait to see what the possible/probable T6 version looks like - if they, for example, made it a Scout ship it might be because of the feedback and opinions expressed about the sort of ship the Nova class became (i.e. the USS Rhode Island and what we saw that ship do).

    <checks the date> It isn't April 1st is it?

    Forum activity is going to drop like a brick without the Nova Topic.
    This program, though reasonably normal at times, seems to have a strong affinity to classes belonging to the Cat 2.0 program. Questerius 2.7 will break down on occasion, resulting in garbage and nonsense messages whenever it occurs. Usually a hard reboot or pulling the plug solves the problem when that happens.

    That makes sense.
    Fireworks over ESD (or whatever else flashy things we can activate there) when it releases then?

    There is no T6 version. I guess it's possible there will be one though, and I strongly suspect it'll be a new skin choice for what would almost definitely be an 'Equinox-class' Cryptic design.
