Started working on designs for a capital ship bridge.  No pictures yet as i am still working out the layout of the bridge

Once i have a better idea of the bridge layout to be i might start a stream. ( Either tonight or tomorrow. )

(( Also, i am still working on the artillery/support vehicle, I am just adding a new project. )

Stream results:

Have not slept in a day ( approximately ), But here is my first shot at a very rough draft of an ammo support vehicle for the main artillery unit. ( This would be the base model i start with to refine into something less . . shapeless and dull. )

This time around i included some interior design concepts early. Anyway..;

The support vehicle has three treads per side, can store up to 240 rounds, and may or may not have it’s own defenses.

Shells are stored in multiple racks. Each shell is brought into the vehicle via either of four cranes. Exterior loading cranes place shells onto one of two track mounted ( Forward/back ) pallet/cargo trays.

From there a gantry crane mounted on a mobile track ( Left/right movement this time) collects the ammo from the cargo loading tray/pallet and places it in the appropriate storage rack.

When the artillery needs ammo the overhead gantry crane retrieve shells from the storage racks and places it in a receiving station for one of two hydraulic powered cradle arms, which  pulls the shell outward towards the rear hatch of the artillery. ( You already saw how that one works. )

So i am considering moving to small starship designs, some where around small corvette class ships for my new focus for models. Such models would include interior and exterior of said ships.  I do not want to move into any preexisting series, So it might take a bit of time to get the momentum going.

If you have any art related to this topic that you would like to see in 3d model form feel free to submit such art to me and i will see what i can come up with. 

Pardon the quick stream, Regardless here are the results.Tinkered with some ideas for the design of the rear of the vehicle. Two hatches in the rear are used for loading ammo into the vehicles ammo storage compartments. The vehicle has two cranes, one for each hatch. ( Just a first draft of the system, So expect changes. )The crane lowers ammo to be loaded into the vehicle via hinged holding clamps( one set on each side of the shell ) while a hydraulic cradle arm extends from the interior storage track. The crane clamps are loosed a bit after the shell is lowered to the cradle arm, which then retracts while the crane bears the majority of the shell weight until it is pulled into the vehicle by the cradle arm.

So i seem to be stuck with several kittens..

At first i thought i had a squirrel in an attic vent, went to set a catch & release trap in said vent only to have two kittens fall on me. After the two ran for the food and water and had their fill i returned them to the vent so the mother could recollect them.( with the intent to patch up the exterior vent after to prevent further feline raids )

The next afternoon they ended up leading two more kittens into the vent and knocked the cover off so all four could go for my indoor cats food/water. Not entirely sure what to do at this point as they keep sneaking back into the house.

Sooo, The thing is that I (mod) am gonna make a t-shirt with the Trixie drawing (that you can see above) on it! This will be the prize for the winner. I have a tight budget so the it will only be a plain white t-shirt and I will only buy from basics, which means the size is limited. (They should have at least size S to XL though) I will also buy the male model even if you’re a girl, because designs like this just looks better on them.

All of my art programs, tools and accessories have been installed ( plus a few new ones ). While i still lack my own art files ( The HDD replacement PCB has not yet arrived ) i am up and running again, So expect more streams soon.

That said, as i currently do not have any of my old art files, I am now accepting requests and apologize for not being able to finish any in the past i had previously agreed to. ( At least until my PCB arrives )


Also note; I am willing to add some new people to play the following with ( Just send me an ask with your ingame contact info )

League of legends, EU West.
Planet side 2, Emerald, Terran Republic ( Formerly New conglomerate )
Awesomenaughts ( Steam game )

Wow that is pretty different. My new MSI motherboard bios has a built in web browser and mouse support. ( Also, My parts arrive early, Re-installing all my art programs, minus art saves. )

So it seems after more then five years of service ( seven for my PSU ) i have decided to replace my PC after yet another part caught fire. ( This time the OS drive. ) 

Yet more new parts (motherboard, CPU, PSU ) have been order and i have decided it was time to move up to windows 8. ( I hope i do not regret this. )

Luckily i had a backup of most my art programs on a thumb drive, Ashame it did not have much of my art files on it.

( I will be MIA all weekend from skype/steam until i rebuild my main machine when the parts arrive monday.  )
