Re: OMG! Design the next USS ENTERPRISE (Offical Contest)

My website is still being flakey, so I'm hosting this on Facebook. Let me know when you start seeing my previously posted images again please. Thanks.

I could see all the others, it was just that last one was missing for me. Everything else was showing fine on my computer.

Probably cached.

I appreciate the link. Perusing now...

[edit] How is it that the deflector dish doesn't deflect the particles that the bussard collector collects?

I've been silently watching this thread for a while, because I didn't have much to offer in the way of advice. I just have to say, however, FM, that I'm seriously impressed with your design skills. Good luck with the competition!

As you can see, my hand drawing ability is rather poor, and hasn't really evolved since after high school, when I effectively switched mediums to the computer.

I have tablet now though, so hopefully I can improve seamlessly.

I restrict my artistic effots to slapping paint on canvas or pointing my camera.... oh and designing the odd stamp.

Re: OMG! Design the next USS ENTERPRISE (Offical Contest)

Thats pretty cool, don't think we get those over here.

I went to stay with a mate a few months ago and he has the ipad, i'd always been anti Apple untill he let me have a play with it. Really really good. Now my back is messed up i'm gonna have to sell my motorbike, i'm thinking of investing in one. He says its a good tool for musicians, so i'm going to investigate that claim

I only just spotted your edit.
I'm not sure, i'm guessing that when the ramscoop system is running (i've only ever seen them use the collectors at low impulse) the deflector is off.

* Deflector Dish and Science Consoles explained... - Page 2 - Star Trek Online Forums

Some stuff here about the dish uses.

Practicing targeted smoothing. This is just a dry run. You'll notice some deformed polys.
