The reskin, the reskin, what what, the reskin
After doing some scouting through Inferno's tech database, I realized that the maps for the GVC Sai are hideously ugly, and don't match at all. Usually when one textures a ship, one sticks to a certain palette... Typhon style, Hat/Sobek style, Bes style, Setekh style, etc. The Sai is an awful mish mash. I took it upon myself to reskin it in a much more consistent fashion.

I hope you guys don't mind... but here it is.

much better but, the darker olive still doesn't seem quite perfect to my eye.

It's been beaten with an ugly stick, yes, but at least it's better than it was. It the UV mapping was better, some custom textures might do it justice.

Don't suppose you can do a re-texture job on the Tanen? I really hate those 100-metre long hexagonal tiles. THAT is one ship that could do with a reskin - I quite like the Sai as it is, although your version is a little nicer. :p

I like it, consistency's a difficult thing. :)

Since the Sai isn't popular, and we needed a heavier cruiser anyway, presenting a new cruiser based off Darks GVC Selket.
it's not exact to Darks original, but I'd rather have it that way :)

Well it is the fenris mk II.
Also if your wondering I do have permission to use it as I obtained permission when I first mapped it with the fenris maps to use it when I wanted to :)

This Vasudan cruiser is of the same class as the ticonderoga will be.

From who?  Solatar/Hades?  I never heard about that.  And anyway, shouldn't such permitted use have to be in the context of the first use of the mod?  The Tico was a turn-of-the-century frigate that was scaled down to create the Fenris - not the other way around. :(

No?
Your using stuff from this campaign, they shouldn't exist in your timeline then :D (the titan node blockade device for example)
Also it would have to be twice it's current size to be classed as a frigate for this campaign :)

Let me use an example.  For some reason the TVWP had the GVCa Tanen on track to become one of our Vasudan carriers.  When I realized it was already an Inferno model, I shelved it and marked it as not usable for our campaign.

We're not using that - we have it, but like the Tanen, it's not going to be used.

Which is why I asked you to resize it before.

Gah - this should really be moved to an instant messaging environment.  Do you have AIM?
