Huh? Oh, yeah... I see it now.

Hey, maybe it's crewed by Caitians.

I wasn't sure about the black when you first made that change, but it's really starting to grow on me. Throw some flame decals on it, too!

I really like the black, but then I really like it on the E-E too.

Such a nice job on that lower saucer. A perfect blend of the old and the new.

I love the ship as a whole, but I am getting a slight vacuum cleaner attachment vibe from those cannons, specifically the way the opening leans forward past the saucer rim. Like the crew clips that part on to get into those tough to reach places.

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

Well, I'm tackling the underside of the primary hull in earnest now. There are about a dozen separate pieces down there, all of which need to be frozen, optimized and seamlessly stitched together before I can proceed with detailing such things as the gridlines. I've worked on it for 5 or 6 hours today and I'd say I'm somewhere between 1/3 and 1/2 of the way there. Very meticulous, very tedious work.

Should have some more WIPs posted by tomorrow night.

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

Sorry, no new posts for the weekend. I'm still working on cleaning up all those parts on the lower primary hull and there's just not much new to look at.

I'm gonna be very busy at work this week and out of town for part of it, so probably no more WIPs until next weekend.

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

So, it's been just over a month with no new updates and I thought I ought to let everyone know what's going on. A few weeks ago, the power supply on my 3D modeling rig died. I managed to replace it fairly quickly but then discovered both the motherboard and graphics card had taken a hit as well. In short, I'm having to rebuild almost the entire rig, and doing it in one shot was simply not in the budget. The good news is, the contents of the hard drive appear to be fully intact, and I hope to have things up and running again shortly.

Stay tuned.

And if your HDD had died, you had everything backed up... right?

Back your stuff up, guys. This PSA was brought to you by someone who didn't, many years ago, and learned that lesson the hard way.

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

I spent most of the weekend--and about $400--rebuilding and resurrecting my workstation. I wound up replacing both the graphics card and the power supply. It didn't want to recognize the RAID array at first and I fussed with it until the wee morning hours on Sunday until I finally discovered one of the dang SATA cables was loose.

I spent the rest of the weekend doing a thorough spring cleaning, tearing apart most of my computers and electronics to rearrange stuff, reorganize cabling, blow out dust, etc. I've got more work to do before some relatives arrive in town tomorrow and I'll probably be busy through Wednesday, but I should be able to resume work on the Grandeur by Thursday evening and deliver some new WIP images by next Sunday night.

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

Awesome news! I've had similar experiences with SATA cables. I even went so far as to start a RMA with the company I purchased my mother board from until I discovered the problem. I felt like a complete when I had to contact the company to cancel the RMA.

Can't wait for the new renders!
