It would be cool to see a Griff-ified version of it. :)

I too am eager to see what hides below the tarp.

"We tried looking under a corner of the tarp, but it was just too dark to make anything out. However, the contours beneath the tarp, certainly didn't match the profile of any other ship I could think of."

Just a quick render (about an hour to remember how to do cloth simulations...), as a test. I am contemplating illustrations...

Thoughts?

Ooo... I know that shape! Took a minute to decide between two possible contenders, but yes, I'm pretty confident I've nailed it! :wink:

And yes, I like the idea of some illustrations.

Yup.. must be one hell of a droid, too.. that tarp's about as big as all the courses of the Preußen combined! :shock:

The ship is almost certainly a Death To Triangles production...

Hehe!

The only problem with illustrations, will come down to time. I will have to keep them as simple and basic as possible, as modeling actual docking bays, ship interiors etc.. would take an enormous amount of time.

But, I am still pondering... }:]

:lol: Perhaps a bit of a spoiler hunh? };] That was another worry and consideration about doing illustrations.

Less is more. A small vignette every now and again just to add a tiny dash of 'colour'.

Should the writing slow down a Q-Bomb will be dropped :wink:

At first, it was to be Old Tom on a tractor type thingy, just pulling it off, but I have to keep reminding myself... technology!

I have a vague-ish idea of what I think the droid might look like. Maybe I will do a follow up... But that would delay the story... I wish we could re-arrange posts! };]

:twisted: Indeed it is, my favorite so far (but I am really liking the War Lance now too!). However, I just couldn't justify him getting one of those (at least not this early in the game! };])!
