Yea my sentiments actually. Of course I liked what the citizen did with the slightly older Blackfoot but now that we have a dedicated CGI modeler working on the New and very much improved Blackfoot it has taken on a very cool distinctive life of it own.

If you want to follow it further check out the Blackfoot portion of the Grandeur Forum here: http://com4.runboard.com/bussgrandeu...17%7Coffset=10

that should start you on page 2 of that area where it starts to get interesting. We are working on updating the actual Blackfoot website as well.

Hello everyone
Just a reminder that we are still looking for someone else to take over the 3D bridge drawings. The last gentleman had to much on his plate to really get started from where Nightshadow left off. So if you know of anybody that would like to fill this area, please let myself or "The Citizen" Know. We would love to have you on the Grandeur Project.

We already have someone doing the various consoles and screens for the bridge stations we just need the bridge herself completed that will eventually fit inside Vektor's model of Grandeur.

Okay... I just had to post this! And it IS worthy of posting!!

David Kleist, Deif on Okudagrams.com, has joined the project and is working on the LCARS screens for the Bridge. He does great work and, although there will be some minor changes... (drum-roll please...) here is his MSD for Grandeur-A...

Looks cool!

But there's something screwed up with the URL. Here's one that's not broken.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

I've been reviewing this thread, and I have a question: has anyone thought about doing TOS-style glowing domes for the topside and belly of the saucer? They don't have to be pure white like TOS, nor do they have to be solid light. I think it would be great if they domes were semi-translucent, with radial arrays of glowing sensor/scanner lights inside. To add a really unusual touch, the light arrays could spin like the TOS front nacelle caps, as if they hose rotating radar transceivers.

Just my 2¢.

Hmmm... that's an interresting idea, Wingsley. Thanks for the imput!

See, I like "out of the box" thinking like that! Grandeur-A is definatly "out of the box".

Great work on everything to both Vektor and the_citizen! It's been said a zillion times, but this is what the Sovereign should have been.

Well, there are more involved now with the Grandeur-A Project. Many talented artists/designers/writers... it has turned into something pretty staggering to me, actually.

David is a perfect example with his LCARs work.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

One thing Icy_Penguigo has done with a couple Federation starship 3D project (I think Stingray and the new X-cruiser) is to distort the front nacelle domes into a semi-egg shape. Maybe this technique could be used for the saucer domes for a little added effect. It would add a little room to the dome if you decide to try the rotating lights thing I suggested earlier.

Have fun!

I'd love to see animation of this baby when it's finished.
