    Trying to get 'swoop-ey' hulls in Cosmographer. I think I made the bridge to round (and big), less beach ball and more football. That may have just confused a lot of people... More 'American' football.

    Agreed. Nicely done. Thanks for sharing. I really like the engine/thrust effects!

    Very pretty, but I think you forgot to place the car playing the Bowie song :)

    On a more serious note, this ship seems to be only for short missions (no living quarters, not even some toilets), but I'm wondering, how do people get in and out of the ship?
    Was is just done with cosmographer symbols, or did you add some of your own?

    Awesome!

    Thanks! It’s two additional created sheets with blur and transparency added. The ‘main engine thrust’ (white)is lower than the symbol sheet and the ‘secondary thrust’ (blue) is above it.

    Crew comfort?!? You’re very thoughtful:) Yes, I may have forgotten a detail, or two... But, that’s nothing a little narrative creativity can’t fix (so, here goes):
    The crew enter through the front; the domed cockpit clamshells open, and the two consoles pivot to make room for entry. No amenities, as this is a short duration ship (space fleet defense), big engine burns lots of fuel to get round quickly - 4-6 hours mission endurance.

    Yup, plain vanilla Cos3 - I like to stack/combine symbols, the engines and core are made up of 15.

    It looks pretty FANTASTIC to me :)

    I am looking around since I basically want to do pretty much the same thing (i.e. make a few space craft that don't look like flying boxes). Were there instructions you used as a guideline, or were you just winging it?

    Thanks!

    Hi Top,
    Just winging it. I created new hull and bulkhead tools to draw the ellipsis and circles (and there was a lot of drawing/trimming/deleting/redrawing). A few years ago I drew a completely asymmetrical ship (I’ll post that link below).

    This looks awesome! I can't wait to get Cosmographer. This weekend is the first time I am going to have extra cash in quite some time. Cosmographer is likely what I am going to spend part of it on.
