i opened this thread here because baobobafet's attempt on github failed 😉

and i haven't seen this as a entry here

(if you won't care, i will, where all say NO, go and say YES, where all run after one like wolfes, go stand aside and leave them alone, where all duck, stand up and fight) in memoriam ((°J°))

so i opened this thread here, because it belongs here! (whatever that might mean)

Here is a short albeit breif vid on the design of the Prometheus. Very reminiscent of the ship from Serenity, but very much amped up. I think this ship will be one of my all time favourites for a very long time to come. Extremely well thought out.

Anyways here is the link:

http://www.tomorrows-news.com/2012/05/p ... pace-ship/

check it out and utter your thoughts

if you find one you like, feel free to post it here, here is the right place for your thoughts players, friends.

trolls, punks, social outcasts, mad scientists and other weird headed.


[/hr]

and now for something complete different,

if one likes to play god, he should go and play a round of good old populous, there he can play god!

never forget, the game lives from the players, we play it, without us "people" it's a nothing, use the power you have.

dear allies you have bombed germany to the ground to get rid of the nazis, but they have become stronger as ever!

worldwide!

we could need some superfortresses again,

filled to the rim with N2O 😆

it's true it has become a dry place here, let's get soakin' wet. 😈

make jokes please, hijack threads as you like and troll around until heaven starts to cry (laughs).

i was for a brief moment on frontier forums, that's a community! i nearly forgot.

but post some stuff at least, serious or not, i welcome all.

but of course, please all within the limits of british descency. 🙄

have phun,

under THIS sign be victorious!

ollobrain, i didn't always complain with you,

BUT, yeah you're right!

fresh or other ideas have not a single chance, what do you think that comes from?

it seems only one is allowed to have ideas for pioneer...

yeah, i rant, i rumble, i'm upraging, i will shook the ground until the dark gets beaten by the light.

if i hate one thing to the dead then it's dictatorship, in which mantle it comes along ever.

to sad you folks don't speak swiss...

john and babs they played a game so nice you could cry,

first babs went on the table and john slipped under.

babs stomps on the table, 'til john doubled back from underneath:

"stop it mary, stop it!"

and then they changed positions,

john went up and babs slipped under.

and the game goes forth from different sides.

"stop it mary, stop it!"

and then they start to laugh.

now i think the world would be quite better,

if more would shout: "stop it mary, stop it!"

means, if ever comes one along and orders you to bow, or tramples on your head.

stand up and fight back!

Sometimes your posts are really hard to understand Gernot!

However, if you looking for things about ship design then I always find things at http://conceptships.blogspot.co.uk/ to be really inspirational.

They're not the site owners designs, he just goes around the web finding them of they get submitted too him. So there's everything from Sparth to DeviantArt-doodles 🙂

A real variety of stuff.

a selection of my flavor from above link

tuomas_k_01.jpg

looks somehow reasonable, reminds me of SW somehow.

manchu_05.jpg

reminds me of 2001, nice one, looks reasonable, something you can imagine in reality.

i like spheric ships, that makes sense to me.

calum_00.jpg

cool, classic sci-fi art, my favorite, even when it's only a shuttle, but style is great, less is more, if you know what i mean.

that's really great in my opinion. color (only 2!), style, all fits. foremost no anime style, i don't like.

prometheus_04.jpg

i guess most will like this, but i have to say, not my flavor. besides such will never run in pioneer, i guess in no game, except you strip it completely of all the greebles.

call me old fashioned, i like this one,

Bit obvious these ones!

bit eyebotty!

It seems Solar sails aren't favoured here impractical? manoeuvring etc.

My favourite...

the big boiler, ah spoiler

spazeman,

even the swiss have often problems to follow my train, jumping from one track to the other.

i found out it works best in german forums, it seems it's the way of thinking and the shared past we have, which makes the difference.

reason might be also my colorful language.

it's a different tribe, i can feel it most every day.

they are a little celtic and foremost allemans don't mix it with the french word for germans, that's different, germans are no allemans. while actually they interprete the roots as celtic but that's not quite true, the celtic part of switzerland is very very small and limited to the central alps, this would be the axe from wallis over the bernese alps to glarus alps resp. better known as grisun the part of switzerland which still speaks partwisely a ancient form of latin in three different dialects. such a small country and so many languages, already in grisun they speak 3 languages (officially), allemannic, ladin, italian. never, tell me something about a language barrier ).

the cultural "border" is somewhere in germany.

in fact the swiss are foremost that what they have been told me i am, a habsburger, but i aint a habsburger, habsburg is switzerland not germany.

this because "the sons of tell" faught against habsburg to get free from a doubled obulus, to pay tribute to the diocese and habsburg.

because that little patch of land has belonged to a nunnery and they have cared good for them.

so that's the reason why this guy (besides he never lived by the name of william tell, that's romantic and schiller wrote only down the legends he heard on his travels) didn't like to bow in front of a hat put on stick (a standard).

you could also say they was a eleven. (in the meaning of partisan, you don't find this shit in wiki, but "the eleven" are partisans or irregulars. hello you deadheads.

i guess youn need to open the webster's to find the proper explanation).

typical swiss or alleman, is to say, "sweep in front of your own door", while they are the ones who argue steady about the behave of the neighbour.

i guess typical german is to say, "that's not my business", while they steady want to teach and dictate all.

the ones the romans feared most (apart from the scots), a unorganized bunch of wildered, barbarians, even that didn't fits exactly.

perhaps they feared the jungle more as the inhabitants. jungle doesn't means rainforest, rainforest aren't the only jungles, canadas forests are jungle as well as the brasilian rainforest. ah, see he teaches already again 😉 , a swiss wouldn't do that, he would already answer completely different. no explanations and perhaps straight answer to the topic, very dry in my opinion, what i do isn't descent enough in their eyes. i get personal with everybody as if erybody would be my brother.

i have a lot of problems due to that and even my divorced wife never understood, arabs neither do that. and when i hug, i mean really hug them, they look at me very suspicous 😆 i see no distance between humans, like it or not.

all of this might on first look contradict to what i wrote about what a real swiss is, rigid and free, but hmm, (lynch me again) them was no real swiss, no, no, milking cows and making cheese (sennerei, dairy) is a import from hungaria (also the people, who had the knowledge how it's done), if you go back a quite little more from persia. so "william tell" was with a high chance a hungarian and not a swiss (i said they will lynch me).

however, the temper is different.

2000 years are between that and you can still feel it.

back to topic - what was it? - aha, ship design, not continental history

yep, that's no spaceship, it looks like a airport mixed with a spaceship, it has the 30's style which i like much, but we could make one of it, i like the shape of it.

(giant spoiler, little sense 😆 )
