LOL Suckrip!

One thing wrong with that though........if partciels are attracted INTO the impulse engines form the back, they'd be tranferring their momentum forwards, which would actually give the ship forward thrust and not reverse thrust. For reverse thrust to happen you have to have thrust exhaust going to the front of the ship.  

But that is a novel idea.....

Actually, I don't see why our two ideas couldn't be COMBINED........that the impulse engines can suck as well as spew with re-directed exhaust, but just not at the same time.

Sorry for hijacking your thread, A.

Hi Anduril
    Nice to see you get back in the swing of things looking forward to the release of both types carriers. This is too good
to be on page 2.

A number of things have transpired to keep progress on this ship at a snails pace.  Not the least of which being I finally rolled up my sleeves and did a format and rebuild of my drive.  I'd like to meet up with the person who thought it funny to make the idgsearch/searchV homepage hijack.

Drive needed a reload anyways since the box has been slowing down but one day I'll run into one of the little pieces of trash who spend their lives in mommies basement doing things like that.



So, not much new to report other than some basic detail going on.

   


   





No problemo on the Hijack A.  I'm more frustrated at the fact I spent 8 years living in a world of Acronyms, considered myself one of the kings of them and I can't come up with one even remotely humorous to add to this discussion....

Two things...

First, that looks marvelous. You have a few fans here, of whom, I am one. Undoubtably it will be the new reference model for this class.

Secondly, that hompepage hijack thingy... fixed that for a friend of mine that I had given my old computer. It was accomplished with a little script that instals itself in the windows folder and executes upon every boot. I changed the name of the extension to test it and all was well again. That little script was deleted immediately after. If it crops up again look for a visual basic file under C: or Windows and you may have found the offending script.

 Just playing around with various shuttle area configurations.  Nothing very substantial yet.

I hadn't considered the doors at all other than putting some gray boxes with a gradient as place keepers...

I changed the above pic to take a look with some quickie Miranda doors.

By the way A, the Impulse Engines are supposed to be back of that ledge that sticks up, back of the saucer......it has great potential to scorch the hull, imo, but hey that's they way it is.

Already dealt with the impulse deck.  Raised the height of the deck by a few meters to fit the engines on the back of it.  So now it's almost even with the top of the B deck but it still works I think.
Progress is slow but not quite snails pace.  But at least it's all mapped out except for the inevitable pushing, pulling, and repositioning of the mesh.
Had to throw on some of Lord Schtupp's most excellent phaser textures too.

I never did send my condolences for the the loss of your cousin.  Lily was a unique and gifted woman and is missed by all.

Wowee that's sweet. Did they ever explain what that teardrop-shaped thing on the back is? Some kind of sensor?

Are you gonna stick that sesnor dish on it or come up with somethng a bit more advanced looking?
