I like that one.  It looks pretty much finished to me, but if you can improve on it, then by all means do so.

Its mainly the textureing and cutting up the mesh for mapping thats holding it up. Ive showed this over at Atras forum for a while now and I have received some good suggestions over there.

That Aurora is looking slick.  Have you considered re-redoing your Connie in light of the new(er) version seen on ENT with the aft weapons?

No dammit I havnt seen it (i dont get UPN), but I sure would like to see some good screencaps of that. I have been working on my Connie V2.0, all new mesh based on the casimiro plans seen here mapped to the hull. The warp engines here are the old ones but they will be all new as well. I'll try to do a full set of regs + blanks as i usually do. I havnt forgot about the Hornet ;D

I assume the hull is slightly modifed from the plans, as well as the B/C deck, so account for their slightly inaccurate shapes? I rmember you giving a long dictation on "Conny Blueprint Quality" back when TSP made his.

Hey Schtupp, would you mind a (small, large, depends on your view of things) critique about the Aurora?

I doubt you've convered things as nitpickily as I have, but why not?

BTW, if it's about the bussards on the second pic, ignore them. The most recent WIP is the one with IaMD style bussards, which I suggested. :)

No not really (a bit perhaps). TSP was more right than I was it turns out. After much further study of new pics of the model I decided that the casimiro plans are pretty much right on the money. The only spot that I feel is inaccurate is the primary intermix/intercooler on casimiros warp engine. Im sure that it is closer to parallel to the centerline of the nacelle than he has it, but thats about all. THis mesh isnt final either. One things for sure its a LOT more accurate than my V1.0, built using the handdrawn everhart plans, the most accurate available at the time (2002)

In my comparison, I overlayed the sinclair plans with the casimiro plans in photoshop (all views), then studied the differences and compared those with new pics of the studio model that TSP sent me links to.

Geez THATS for sure lol!

Mariner class has helped make it a better ship, that much is certain. Note that the diiferent pics are at different stages of development, the top one is most current.

Meh, forget the Hornet.  I've recently developed a fondness for the Yorktown.

Man! I keep saying "enough FEDS" Then without hesitation d/l anything schtupp and wz make. It figures...just as i gave up on the Antares... this thead shows up. I just (yesterday) finished bashing one of your fed transports into a tos frigate to fill the slot. Guess thats why we have a recycle bin.

No not at all. Whats on your mind?

[Uncovers garbage can and stands up]

First off, I really like the way it looks... and that's kind of the problem!  It doesn't quite smell TOS; it has more the aroma of TNG.  Allow me to clarify- my first impression was that it reminded quite a lot of the post-TNG Sovereign (Ent-E).  Now, I'd d/l it and play it as is just because it's pretty to look at.  But I'd also be thinking of finding a Borg cube to kick the crap out of in a TOS mod... I guess I'd never finish any missions!

[/Bends back down and pulls lid back on]

[Pops out temporarily]

Uh, anyone else with that perception??

You know, E, maybe it's just the chair that got smashed into my head talking, but now that you mention it, it does vaguely look like the Sovereign.  Vaguely, mind you; might not look that way when my brain's no longer concussed.

Oh, and Schtupp, one question: what's the difference between Connie 1.0 and 2.0, for those of us who don't have comparison pics handy?  And would somebody hook this man up with some HDTV screencaps of the ship from ENT?
