Yes boys and girls! This has officially moved to V13.1! After dealing with uncontrollable Klingons, Gorns, and Tribbles, the hull of the Renegade is finally set in place. The saucer herself is a deck thicker, bringing it to a total of 3 decks in the saucer rim. The flow from the saucer into the secondary hull area is better in my opinion. I’m opting for maybe two shuttle bays but I have yet to decide on that. One shuttle bay would be for main shuttle operations while the other would house a large transport shuttle used to ferry down two small buggies or a large ground LMTV-type transport. I’m going to include in the future some nods to Zephrem Cochrane’s warp ship, but unfortunately Mr. Drexler did not have any high res pictures on him. Starfleet Command asks for any help in this search and it would be very much appreciated. Hopefully I can include nods to the pilot version of the Enterprise as well. Nacelle innards are still exposed but I hope to finish them up before end of next month. Overall plan is to finish this before end of next year. 😀
Made some major renovations today. Including a rebuilt Primary Hull and better looking (IMHO) secondary hull. There’s a few mesh errors but none that are to problematic.
Made some significant progress today. No where done of course but getting close. Been trying to make what I’ve seen in technical schematics about the inside of the warp nacelles while at the same time doing them a little bit differently. Mainly to get done is the walkway between the warp coil sections, some more structural support and braces, the walkway access tube that leads to the pylons which in turn lead to the secondary hull, detailing on the Main Stage Flux Tuner, and the area in the back that connects to the Space Matrix Restoration Coil.
Back, back again….
1. Disabled the rotating phaser cannon thing. Decided at this point I might just leave it like this.
2. Started the deflector area. No, it doesn’t retract and extend. Played with that idea but decided against it. There would be no point to it.
3. Front of nacelles are pretty much done and textured.
Secondary hull is still continuing to be an issue.
