true but there are some people in this forum that didn’t mind a new take on it, and even people who like ENT, VOY, DS9, and TNG. to see from every post from the same handful of people saying i hate this because it’s not TOS, it gets old, and discourages people from participating in this forum discussion, which is supposed to be all era’s of trek.

I like NG- even DS9 and some Voyager. I can accept that the NX-01 existed, but I have problems with some of the things they did.
The problem most of us have with Abrams, is that he didn’t stick to his proposed plan. He said he wanted to create an altered timeline. OKay, fine. But he changed too many things for that explanation to work.  He filmed an alternate universe and called it an altered timeline- big difference between the two.

the only Trek I don’t like is the JJ trek - watched that movie and hated the whole experience - found only one actor in it I enjoyed and that was L. Nimoy, found the visuals totally stupid, the water pipes come to mind really strongly as totally stupid as one example.

Am I the only one that has enjoyed all of the Star Trek series and movies? I thought the last Star Trek movie was different, not like the rest but the franchise needed a boost and good or bad it got it. I agree with Andrewbrian, I get that you don’t like the JJ Adams movie we heard enough of that on the old forum, please let it drop and move on.

Hay! We’re nearing the 100 page mark.

Since not everybody reads English the way I do; would a statement like this:

You may edit, kitbash or do anything with this mesh. Just have fun with it :D

include redistribution of converted mesh with textures?

I haven’t heard back yet from the original person who seems to have a very popular handle so I’m not even sure if I sent my query to the correct address.

Umm, I wasn’t preaching anything, and definetly not any hate.

I would read that as, “You can do anything with this mesh that you wish, for personal use.” I would not take the omission of an explicit restriction on redistributing it as tacit permission to do so, especially if it was purchased.

Glad I asked then, thank you. No it is a free item, .max file though.
I ran a straight conversion to .obj and then to a prop in D/S. While the programs seems to have renamed a few of the mat zones [they do weird things sometimes]; i didn’t change a thing.

So “just in case” somebody knows how to reach him, or maybe he sees this and could enable release, it’s David “KnightRider” Metlesits according to the readme. Thanks.

You can also contact him on DeviantArt: http://thefirstfleet.deviantart.com/

Mattymanx converts a lot of Dave’s starship models to Poser; I’m sure he’ll probably say, “Okey-dokey” cheese.

I don’t have an account there though. I tried once and got a migraine reading through all the hoops, no thanks.

That just happens to be on my list of ships to convert soon along with several other of Dave’s ships.  He has always been very kind about having his work converted and greateful too.  I have not yet asked him about the current batch but thats only cause I am not far along since I am busy with PA products.

I will more than likely host the conversion on my DA account since its more flexable and you dont need memebership to download it and I can easily point back to David’s account to give proper credits.

I also like converting his work cause its rather east and stress free compared to other models


EDIT:
I just sent Dave a PM on DA so we should know soon.  THough I have a feeling it will be just fine.

Yes his work was quite delightful after seeing some of the others! geez. I thought some of the issues being faced in our ‘little’ programs were simply because of conversion processes, but no. Some of the models released even for Max have some serious “overlapping” issues and whatnot. However kudos to anybody who can model with that program! Would take me way more than a month to figure it out lol ....

Many threads ago, in a forum long away ... okay, it’s late ...

We can do animations inside an animation in D/S3 at least. When it was on sale I picked this up:
http://www.daz3d.com/shop/animated-textures-plug-in-for-daz-studio

Did a test run with moving images in a picture frame with a figure changing poses in the foreground. grin

Images for the inside animation “must be” numbered sequentially. One points the browser to the 1st one ... render off the series.
It seems to bake it there or whatever the term is.
Then back to square one and various points along the way to pose the figure.
Ran the plugin’s render ‘em out feature the second time; and it worked!

If you convert a TNG era ship with a sphere instead of a disk, I’d love to hear it.
Also, whatTrek ship could be the Trek equivalent to the Millennium Falcon?  I need to locate a somewhat small vessel.
