The plan of the external look of the design is more or less complete save some minor detail on the main body and some additional details in the engine section.
Getting close to finishing the external look, now I have to think about the texture maps and later the internal sets, this will be available for sale in the future and I am going to try to make it available for DAZ 3d users, also on the cards for this design is land-craft of some description and perhaps a small flying craft for planetary surveys..
Once again I am having to change the Blog settings and at the same time making the sections easier to navigate, namely the Star Trek section, Constitution Class, Jefferies Space-tug, etc get their own sections.. I possibly revise that a little more.
Such as the Registry work I did may go into their own subsection,.
The biggest nuisance for me that the multi images I post as collage rather than single images don’t open as I want and I hope you want to see, I render image large to fit the larger screens we enjoy these days.
So alas you will be seeing more changes to the look of the blog and I hope its for the better and quicker to navigate.
First design I done in a while, an early Pathfinder design or perhaps the original (going back to my other design now called the ranger and posted a while ago, This does not have artificial gravity but in this it has the power to keep a consent thrust at 1-G. Fusion rocket perhaps for long-term acceleration in space.. can land on Earth type gravity wells but no much more, inter-system design, not interstellar, I am playing with some ideas of my own, inspired by the recent discoveries over the last few years, I like to try my had at a story and this design could be featured.. perhaps I am being overly optimistic having this design launch in 2045 AD .. but there is hope that we (humanity) will do these things in the future.
The ship is quite tall and multi levelled,, but a small crew,, perhaps 12 or 20 crew personal, but I am given that some thoughts as the design develops
I updated the engines
The main engines are outboard and they have landing struts connect there, clearing the lower section to (maybe has smaller lander pads but also a large hatch and cargo area, landing craft to explore beyond the LZ and to build long term habitats etc ..
changed the engine struts
