Oooo... two versions. One with the standard dish on a bracket. The other with a WADE array! How hard could that be? Perhaps take from Atrahasis's Siva. I'd like it.  

Edit: Hey! check it out. I'm a commander now. More like space cadet.

I'm not really sure what it is supposed to be but I'm considering it an array.  Maybe an AWAC's type to allow the CVA to seriously take charge of what is going on.  That and the fact they wanted it painted copper suggests a system other than power.

Right now the standard dish is below.  I've been playing with the textures a bit.  Right now it has copper around the outside and a blue center that is textured similar to the TMP ships dishes.  If I go with a hybrid I will probably remove the antenna.  I have also considered one in the front of the saucer itself.  It will probably be the last thing I do.

Nooo anything but putting a dish at the front of the saucer!

I like that idea of the standard dish-on-a-stick, but make it more stylin', like giving it a TMP glow in the center.....

I agree with Atra, a dish on the front ptobably isn't the way to go. The WADE units like on Atra's Siva model might look good, but otherwise I'd go for the dish hanging down underneath the saucer on a mount.

I think the "dangeling dish" with anduril's enhancements is the way to go as per the original design.

Dish Dangle or Wade Units.....

If you go for the dish though, dont make it too big... It doesn't need to be any bigger than standard....

If memory serves isnt there a crosshatch or grid pattern on this bit? If its a sensor array then maybe it should glow inside the grid lines... hmm doesnt seem right though - shrug....

You do know that the ship has a balcony and trac system correct?
So im just kinda wondering if your going to show it.

And it looks good so far.

Take a look at the leading edge of the saucer on Atra's Siva class model - those are WADE units.

Ok did that, thanks. So is a wade unit a sensor, scannor, nav deflector, or all of the above?

 Its a updated sensor scanner  type thing, basicly replaces the dish unit.

Yes, I'm interested to see what you do with the fighter balconies as well.

Well technically the balconies are already there.  It's more down to me coming up with a cool texture for the pad areas.

If you are looking for real balconies you'll get moist when a certain unnamed source gets around to finishing up his CVA variant......

Hey thanks for using my phaser textures btw that was awesome...

I started a new job a little while back, six months into it and I'm already infamous lol. Myself and  partner (decent chap, likes rush deep purple judas preist etc.)  run the prepress dept at a printing company. Anyway we had been keeping a close tab on your carrier, so it was kinda neat to see that.

yay

When you're good you're good and you're good so people like to borrow from you!

I've tried numerous designs on the dish, most came out a bit on the gaudy side.  Here's where I'm at now.  Ideas?
