Any chance for a version with K' tinga warps? The Klingon Fleet needs upgrades too, LOL.

Here's a quick mock-up to give an impression of what they'll look like in-game. It might take a while, but I hope to develop a fleet of like-textured ships and I'll be happy to share, so long as all of the original author's are in agreement.

I am well known for not wanting my ships textured in garish TMP clownpanels.

But.. you can use anything of mine.  Your textures are muted, nicely done, do not have an abundance of garish greens and yellows.  Take anything of mine that you can use.  Nice work.

a Klingon Science Vessel...

*Snerk*

I like the idea that it could be an auxillary carrier / Galactic survey type cruiser too.

I agree..


The Northern Star: I may have asked you this before, but would you mind if I, too, retextured this ship for my own fleet? I don't want to inadvertently step on toes by redoing a ship that you are also redoing, you know?

Thanks very much, I may take you up on that!  ;)

I wasn't intending on that for myself but I don't see why I couldn't whip up a MKII version when I'm done.

Go for it! I'm not possessive of "my work" as it depends heavily on the work of others. Besides, why are we all here if not to share and have a little fun.

Lets not turn this into a contest to see who can drag out the delivery of a ship for their respective Imperial Navy. I don't want to lose to the flatheads with their really PRETTY ships that take so long to build that you can't scratch the paint on them...

I think it's the either the clear or glittery FINGERNAIL POLISH the flatheads use in their paint that takes them so long to produce their pretty ships ;) Snicker...

Most of the upper details are done. The underside will be a bit of a challenge as some of the textures appear in more than one location.

I've corrected the shading on the wing, got rid of the red marks on the back of the command deck, finished the shading on the command deck and the base of the neck, and I re-sized the cargo hatches to be more to scale.

 >:( FOUR standard days and no progress report!

I hope you aren't taking lessons in ship construction from the flatheads using their PRETTY anti-scratch painting techniques....

 :'( Sadly I've been too busy at work to get very much accomplished but all is not lost. I've been given a week's reprive and after I return from Ottawa with the family I intend to get this guy launched and hopefully the Ktinga as well. I've also started a 3rd and have been given consent for Terra's ships so I'm likely going to start the first tug this week.  :)

Thanks for the update. Don't let my role play misrepresent my enthusiasm for your work on these ships. Time with family is more important.

It would appear that the underside details are going to be severely limited, as I suspected. Many of the areas on these textures are repeated elsewhere. Such as the shadow and hull plating at the forward surface of the wing also being on the rear edge and the front edge.  :-[

I also have a couple of lightmps that I'd love to experiment with ( I suspect the one is too stark and the other too subtle ).

I'm sorry if it seems to be taking forever, I have been chipping-away at it though! I've done the inner pylons, and finished the aft greeblies. I have a few more details to add to the command pod then the underside should fly along!
