    What is it you don't like about it ? I thought the modern version was way better then the old series. (not talking about the movie versions)

    ---

    Alltough i'm still feeling stuck with updating my stuff, i'm allready doing some, allthough without volume/weight/CPU in mind.
    Mostly rearranging thrusters (so they are not hidden), and some redesigning in form aswell.

    Like the Dark Hopper for one has been given a new visage :
    creative 9.0.3_2019-01-06_14-23-09.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-06_14-23-19.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-06_14-23-30.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-06_14-23-43.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-06_14-23-50.png
    Normal steel warp SV for max 3 ppl, adjusted with a hatch where one has to "hop" and promptly spawn the drone out, so you can safely hand(drone)drill those rare mats. Another iteration to its name one might say, lol.

    Another visage rework i did a while ago was the Time Frogger :
    creative 9.0.3_2019-01-08_09-09-25.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-08_09-10-05.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-08_09-11-03.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-08_09-11-50.png creative 9.0.3_2019-01-08_09-12-32.png
    Armored steel trooptransport warp SV is its purpose for max 9 ppl.

    But i just know everything is going to be f****d once the full implementation of said volume/weight/CPU hits us.
    I haven't played for long since around 1 year now in a full game sense, cuz the friend i played with dropped the game.
    Not counting the couple games i dropped soon after, cuz several different reasons.
    All i can do is dabble in creative from time to time, if time to play permits me.

    We can always keep our beloved memories from the good (not so) old ST TNG, or Voyager.
    Then not make it Star Trek, but make it 'Orwell' :p *duck and covers* (edit: not the novel, but the series)

    This has to be the most epic planet in the game.

    Today i am building some more on a larger orbital base which has a landing-pad for one of my larger CV's (NSI Nidus). Spend a few days on it already. These things take some time but i love building big structures.

    Also got a boost from seeing two of my builds on the front page today :) Makes it even more fun to build when other people enjoy it as well..

    Will post pictures of the Orbital Base later... right now it's subject of some change and additions.

    What i meant was, i'm not a super fan of the newer movies and i really, really dislike ST: DIS.
    I love TNG (especially because of its humanistic mindset) and Enterprise (i'm probably the only one, lol). TOS is a classic in my mind and the movies 1-6 are great.
    Heck i really love the first one. (i know i'm weird, lol :confused:)

    DS9 had great characters but it was too much war dumming for my taste (i know people like it because of that, but to me Star Trek is about preventing wars) and too many concepts that where established with TNG (like a enlightened humanity) where thrown overboard in favour of more violence and other things.
    VOY wasn't bad, but not really good either, it had too many wasted opportunities and it reduced the borg to a villian of the week. What a waste of good ideas.


    :)

    That's what i had in mind. For all i heard "The Orwell" is regarded as the better Star Trek series these days (compared to Discovery). I'm actually waiting for it to arrive on DVD so i can finally watch it. :)

    @Neal Yes absolutly, maybe with a slightly more humoristic/sarcastic/slapstick approach than ST.

    OT:
    I made a Hangar 'today':

    Love the Style! May I say that it has a bit changed compared to your earlier Builds? Changed in a better way, of course!;):D

    Thank you, but it doesnt seem to be this case.

    It is built in creative, and it isnt my first ship.
    I'd be aware if i had set any Portal, used a wrong core, planted veggies or anything alike.

    I've just removed all railings, walkways and even shutter Windows, to no Change.
    And just to be sure regardless, i've did a third check on everything, even plants and core…

    But everything is supposed to be ok.

    Just out of …. no idea…. i tried the prefabinfo… (it didnt used to work for me during 7 or 8 - at least not without alot of hazzle).. and it worked!!
    Ramps… small ramps..?!

    At first i was thinking of those new cool rampblocks.
    But no… it's been that single old rampblock we're having for ages already and which 'used to work' without issues in this regard…

    Shock, releave... strange… :confused:o_O

    Well... since Eleon hates us builders :p (am referring to the entry/exit of cockpits) i spend this morning changing the NSI Aranean.
    With a lot less hassle than i anticipated i made both its cockpits work.
    The inner cockpit does look a little worse imo (had to use shutterdoors to seal it off), but when the developers throws eggs at you, it's best to make an omelette and not let the eggs go to waste :)

    How it looks with the shutterdoors
    20190110133205_1.jpg

    Hooked a motionsensor up with the 2 shutterdoors so they open when you stand 1 block away on the outside and also opens as soon as you leave the cockpit
    20190110133221_1.jpg

    Also set up a LCD which is connected to same the sensor and activates the LCD when you are in the cocpit (lets you know the shutterdoors are closed behind you)
    20190110133234_1.jpg

    This is the view when you leave the cockpit. Just have to make a little jump to get over the shutterdoor-frame and you are out :)

    ====CPU DISCLAIMER====
    As far as I am concerned, CPU does not exist yet.
    The current figures of 100 on all thrusters and RCS etc are placeholders.
    I will not build my ships around a feature that does not exist yet or even has solid figures set in stone.

    When CPU becomes a thing and all the usage figures have been decided and balanced out, then I will build my ships to suit that feature.

    Seems you found a fine solution for the Cockpit-Changes.
    Btw., I would not say that the Devs does not like us Builders. It is foremost the PvPers who find it necessary to EXPLOIT things to their advantage. So, when complaints are mounting the Devs have to "fix" that. For the Greater Good.

    To one of your Pictures: What difference would it have made if you would have used an open Cockpit for the 2nd One as it is on the inside?
