      and im happy you are adressing the front as it could use it
      good stuff.
      any chance of more angles? like front/bottom?
      Thanks.

      Yeah the front looked okay to me until i added the armor paneling to the flight pods. It was the sides, the slope wasn't steep enough and it make it look awkward with the pods.

        thanx fr the suggestion; not sure how to do that, but I'm gonna instead try re-exporting n reattaching it now

        I think that what you describes are called Dyson trees : - Wikipedia
        wasn't aiming for that concept specifically; read the article tho;. Freenman Dyson is an absolute genius of a scientist; known bout him fr long time but never delved much into Dyson Trees; knew he was talented in not just physics but other natural sciences like biology; one of the greatest physicists n in general scientists of all time--really too bad he didn't get the Nobel Physics Prize

        u r the master modeller of Atlantis; curious--do u ever intend to utilise your Atlantis mods in say, a fan-made CGI movie or cartoon? usin this different medium from what the show to illustrate Atlantis allows us to visualize it better--wickedly cool



        They are in one of my favorite books "space" by stephen baxter, which include large ring shaped objects that break you down and transmit you as energy to a corresponding ring at you destination, but its constrained by the speed of light. its referenced on that wiki page about dyson trees
        kind o like the stargate concept, eh? xcept with a slighly lower capacity
        cool, thanx for sharing!

            OK guys, I've finally managed to upload n attach my primitive sketch.
            It's not finished, as I ran into some user-caused-problems with the paintbucket; I was trying to "splash" the paint onto the craft's one unpainted surface but failed probably because I need to somehow "select" that particular facet to paint.

            I apologize in advance if this fighter drawing makes anyone begin to dread the possibility of OS created to a similar degree of lousiness.

                thank you.
                well of course id like to use em for cartoony movies etc but im afraid the rendering times are ludicrus and im not that patient but if i stumble over a renderfarm in the future there will def be some animations.

                  Thanks I already changed some more of it because I disliked it. Now I'm content. And no time for fancy renders, here is one straight from SketchUp

                      Its my little pet peeve really, but it make sense in the long run. If you want to do something to your model and the geometry is messed up then it's going to mess up what you want to do. When i'm going to add ribs to the front I need all of those lines perfect or it's going to be a pain in the ass to make them look good.

                        Hey Stargate watcher, this is my quick design for what i was thinking, added a crystal dome like structure to the top aswell, its oni at 15 mins quick sketch but its the sort of basic shape-ish i was thinking for the furling equivalent of an alkesh or maybe a midsized cruiser.

                        I do stress, these are extremely primitive, there are no weapons, textures, windows, basic structures only. and not a finalised design, plus the gold wont be as in your face on final

                            Looking pretty good, you should start to add some more to the weapons and window so you can get some character!

                              Before I turn in for the night I added some guns and finished to new body of the bottom of the nose. 45,000 polygons.

                                elegant, Furling-elf looking design, NN

                                thanx very much for takin all that time to brainstorm this up
                                I'm gonna start tryin to fit this vessel into my ff. Will let u know how what I come up with. Cruiser-size seems to be just about right. I'm imagining this might be one of the ships the Ga'uld copied some of their designs from, as it looks remotely like an al'kesh from behind. O course, as the ship designer, we on OSDT will consider ur background explanation to be the definitive one. Can't wait to see the added design details!
