reworked the hull, fixed a truck load of defects.



And got it in world, along with the RCS plates and lightning rod.



Also, this weeks class homework is to make a table with a logo carved into it. This will be the table in the crew commons when I am finished. The Harriman is operated by the "Black Lion Starfreight" company, whose logo is a black heraldic lion over the Imperial Starburst.

Looking good! I love seeing WIP stuff like this.

Default A plethora of Gilberts

Something I would like to clear up. There are 3 Gilbert Buchanans in the virtual worlds.



The snazzy dresser on the left is Gilbert Buchanan in Second Life. He is the one who flies the D.D. Harriman out of Fergus IV, a small planet between the Imperium and the Principality of Caledon. It's 1119 and everyone in the galaxy has gone quite nuts.

The Gilbert on the far right is on Open Sim. He is at present not involved in any role play.

The young Gilbert in the middle owns a sim on the Discovery Grid. A grid is a collection of sims that are joined and managed as a group. OpenSim and Discovery Grid use the same software and travel between the two grids . Second Life is a separate grid, runs a proprietary version of the sim software, (technically this is backwards. OpenSim is an open source version of the sim software, as well as the name of a collection, or "grid" of sim.)

Anyway, Discovery Grid Gilbert allows me to build it and work out the bugs as uploads are free there. Second life wants money to bring mesh bits in world and I am cheap.

Engine room in world


Okay there is a bit missing at the top of the bulkhead. Which is why I am building it here.

A bit empty, needs some apparatus.

Progress report:
All 'chunks' of the ship are in world at Mare Drakonis Airfield. That means the Outer Hull, the Lower Deck, Bridge, Middeck, Engine Room and Passenger deck are all rezzed, in world. I can walk through, and on the ship.






That is the outside

Lower Deck


Engine Room


Captain's Cabin

Needed to take a bit of a break, but am back to work now, and learned how to do the back cushions for the settees.




Also homework in Blender class was to make a table with a logo carved into it. It has a glass top over the carving, but still. The logo is for "Black Lion Starfreight",

Guess I've been too long out in the Cloud, but it just occurs to me that any large jolt or loss of inertial compensation or artificial gravity is going to disable all your food/waste/cleaning systems and turn all those loose chairs and other objects into 1G+ projectiles.


So I don't know that I buy into the 1950s yacht vibe, from aesthetics maybe but I don't think I would be letting this ship retain it's passenger certification.


OTOH I DO like the oxygen tanks on the bridge chairs. That's a basic that should be there, although probably more in it's back, light armor protected and pointed down, don't need kinetic impacts causing a minor explosion on your left side.

Perhaps its the nature of these systems to not outright fail, especially if you don't tend to frequent combat.

Sea going boats are filled with things that can be hurled off of shelves and slid down decks particularly in rough weather, yet still they remain. Most of these vessels outright avoid very rough weather in the first place.

Star ships may simply not have that problem in practice.

Because all of that logic relating to turning cushions in to projectiles applies to the crew as well.
