    This is what happens when you use some pretty good but overpriced software that has some pretty lame video export options, then run it through a free video editor and attach some royalty-free music.

    I see you're still building ships for your own universe. Very nice. I like that animation, and the music you found for it is nice too.
  • rojrenrojren274 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,452Member
    Yeah, I've still got a bunch of old (and a few new) ideas to mine for new ships. And I still have a hard time getting into the design ethic of the established universes.

    I did do a Federation post-Antares / pre-Constitution era medical ship earlier this year.

    I like that a lot. :)

    Thank you. Here's some more views. I don't think I posted them here, just on the Discord channel and my site.

    Nice start. It has an early Apollo capsule look to it so far. :)
  • rojrenrojren274 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,452Member
    It should end up looking a bit different. Maybe. I hope.

    Added a 'drive ring', and an airlock.

    It wasn't a criticism, just what came to mind. It definitely looks different. I like the look of it so far.

    It wasn't taken as a criticism. It was more of an observation. I was just trying to come up with a response while 1/2 - 3/4 asleep on the couch.

    Truth be told, I could probably do with more than a bit of criticism if I'm going to get any better at this.

    I'm not sure how clear this is, but I've been building the inside of the control cabin. It's split down the center. The brown sausages are the acceleration couches (0.25g max).

    Nice work. I really like those cutaway renders.
  • rojrenrojren274 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,452Member
    Thanks. I wasn't going to do those, but then suddenly I was doing them.
