Centaur Time Lapse

Ever wonder what it looks like when we model a new ship for Fleet Ops?  Ever wonder what it would be like to stand over our shoulder and see a ship come from nothing?  Well wonder no longer!

I have recorded the modeling process of the Centaur class.  This is the first time I've ever attempted something like this, so the video is a little rough and there are one or two parts missing.  But the bulk of the process is there. I would have liked to do a little narration, but it proved harder than I expected.  So enjoy the show. 


Here is the alternate version of the movie that should be playable in Germany.  The video is available at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DFba7hsOjk

The Centaur will be a new Warp-in ship that is the first of the rare Warp-ins.  The rare Warp-ins have a reduced chance of responding to your distress call. She will be available in the next patch.  As an additional treat, I've taken some nice renders of the Centaur. 


Additionally the Centaur gets her own texture upgrade when she hits veteran.  I wanted to take the centaur and give her some more modernity with the veteran upgrade.  So she gets some modern style plating along the nacells and on top of the saucer.
