    I agree. Without all that lens distortion, it looks good. :)

    Houston... We have a problem...

    I keep getting error messages on this RAR like...
    "Unexpected end of file."

    All I can open is the Read Me TXT...

    Try it now. I just downloaded it, and it extracted fine.

    That's odd.

    I'm having problems with your downloads page as the most I seem to be able to get is only 500 kb compelted, though I did get luckly with 3.8 meg once.

    You may try to put this up at Sci-fi meshes as I did get the Kelvin you converted from there with no problems.

    On a side note I noticed by the filenames of the pics you seem to have jumped version 4 & gone straight from v3 to v5. I haven't had access to the web for the last month, but after back tracking I still can't find this version.

    Yeah, I put in a request at tech support, but they said everything was o.k.

    I was able to download it all without a problem, this morning.

    V4 didn't last long. It was my previous "Final" version, but then I decided to actually finish it up.

    I'll go ahead and release this on SciFi-Meshes, today. :)

    OOPS...

    Sorry about that Chief...

    It looks really nice, MadMan - I like it. I'm going to have to check out your gallery some more, too.

    Thanks. :) I just built a Render-Farm, so I'll be able to render more videos, soon. I've got 4 boxes , running yadra, that I am using. They all are about 2ghz, with with 512mb of RAM, at least. It did pretty well last night during a test, but I screwed up the animation. :)

    No problem. I was having issues, too. I can see that if it fails once, normally it works fine the next time. Tech support swears nothing is wrong. :)

    Thought everyone might like this....

    It's from an animation that I am fixing to send over to the "Render Farm" :).

    The Klingon Ship is not mine... Prologic9 built it. It'll be properly credited in the video. :)

    It should take about 8 hours to render 550 frames, for this one.

    "Turn, Sulu! Turn! TURN!" :D

    Looks great, but I believe you've got the moon behind Saturn when it's supposed to be in front. And...... which moon is that? It looks a bit like Callisto, but that's a Jovian moon.

    Really not sure. :) It's just some planet maps I had floating around my HD.

    I meant for it to be behind the planet. :) Even so, I now realize if it was real, that close moon would destroy the rings. I'll update it:)

    also, I meant for it to not actually be Saturn, but named it Saturn anyway. :)

    Very nice, MadMan. Your lighting is becoming more realistic.

    OK, I thought I would bump this image up to the top, to ask for some input/advice.

    My problem is this... I've learned so much in the process of making this ship, as well as the new klingon cruiser, that I am considering building this again, from scratch. :) This will be version 4...

    I guess what I am asking is if you guys think I am spinning my wheels, or should I continue on and try to build the "definitive" close to screen accurate as possible version for Blender? I intend to spend quite a lot of time getting the small details right, and keeping the Mesh clean...
