I have made a beta for the Courageous Class vessel. The ship can be built from the Eraudi Yard from both Avatars. Make it to Veteran 6th rank and get shiny new quad quantum pulse weapons. 

Thanks to the original Bridge Commander authors : Queball & MayhemUK, who gave me permission for the conversion

Thanks to Tyler for the creation of the textures, buttons, and admiral's log images.

The following things work :

Installation of ship package in Mods
Construction
Combat
Levelup
Custom Weapons
Specials

The following DO NOT work, or need improvement :

Balance
Pricing for vessel ( Dirt cheap right now)
Decommission (no money back)
Weapon icons
Balance
Tech Tree (Currently freetech)
Balance

Instructions :

Download ZIP file ( http://ubuntuone.com/p/1CtA/ ) 4.3MB
Make a folder in the Fleet Ops Data directory called "Mods"
Decompress ZIP file to Mods
Load FO
Go to settings, mods, and click Courageous
Play, leave feedback

Awesome. Defintely gonna use this to pwn. Wonder if the AI will spam it though, due to its dirt-cheap price. No matter, I almost never play against Fed AI anyways.

AI doesn't have it scripted in yet. They won't build it until that is done.  ^-^

Nice work. Although I have to point it out that you did not include any credits in you release! You must give credits ot the original authors of this ship! They made the model, they made the textures, they have the right to be known as the creators of this beauty.
And it's illegal not giving proper credits to the original authors  :whistling:

:pinch: Rookie mistake? I DID put it on the website at least, but the point is made.  :blush:  The uploaded file should now be fixed. Please see the link in my first post for the updated file.

actually both uk and usa copyright law are very specific that when you create something you have assumed copyright on it. you dont have to do anything official.

of course with high value intellectual property officially registering it helps you to enforce your rights, and only a fool wouldn't do so with high value intellectual property.

but in this case, technically the law is clear that the author's have an automatic copyright on their work until many years after their death (depending on the type of intellectual property).

if someone steals your mod it's highly unlikely you are going to go to court over it, there's very little money involved.

I don't know that it is technically illegal, as somebody was able to sell mods on e-bay without real repercussions, however it is extremely bad form to release somebody else's work with out at very least crediting them.  Doing that on a differenc site such as msfc or filefront could get you banned.

it is illegal, it's copyright theft. i remember the case of the mods being sold on ebay, and that was illegal too, that was theft of multiple people's work, and more than that, the person was even profiting from that by selling it on.

if the modders were bothered to go to court they would win, but then they have to pay for a lawyer.

I'm not really concerned with the legal matters involved in distributing others' work. However, I am concerned with the moral matters involved. It is in bad taste to make someone else's work look like your own. I never intended on that.

However, as far as US law goes, if you can prove prior work (really easy on computers) than you have a de facto copyright.

Since you guys take this so seriously, I am thinking maybe I should too. I choose to put work directly attributable to me under a CC-BY-NC-SA license. A copy of the license is available here :

a similar provision applies under uk copyright law, and i suspect under most western copyright laws.

the copyright applies from the moment you create something.

It's very similar in the continental (i.e.: European) law systems as well. So if you do not include credits, you violate the law.
Of course a rookie mistake is not a problem if you fixed it  :thumbsup:
