hey, something I just noticed during play, and I'm not sure if its been noted in this thread, but the defiant bridge ship status panel is skewed.

Apologies, this thread is for ship model issues only. The reasons: The interior designers are not the same group as the exterior designers, who are the ones who (hopefully still) check this thread. It's better to focus on just one aspect per thread (hence why I created an entirely separate thread for uniforms). There is no room left for non-ship-model issues on the front page, where you would look to see if anything was mentioned.

guess i should add more to the refit then :p
couple of things really.

1. the back of the bridge is missing its docking port in game, instead this is an oddly angled piece and offsets the look of the entire area on the model

2. on the deflector dish area there are only 2 of the bumps (where the fed flags are on the sides) the bottom one is MIA on the game model.

3. lower planetary sensor dome is inaccurate to the movie model.

4. forward part of the nacelles is missing the "T" bar across the upper front end, and the light on the back of that stretch.

http://www.mutara.net/Christies/deta...A/IMG_1813.JPG (light can seen here, its the bump on the top there)

5. the flux grills(? i think) have a big wall in front of them on the game model, this wall should be almost smooth with the nacelle. the color is also more of a burnt copper on the filming model, and a solid black on the in game.

6. this one can be debated, but in reality, and it can be seen, the outboard of the nacelles aren't only not lit, they're actually silver in color. Apparently camera's like to make it pretty dark and appear greyish, and for the movies they used filters that altered the colors further (hence the grey strongbacks instead of engineering green (TMP-ST3) or blue (ST4-6)

7. its (game model) also missing a LOT of detail around the shuttle bay area among it is the ship name.

8. the lower part of the saucer comes up and sits level, on the studio is came up a little more then flared at the outside.
http://www.mutara.net/Christies/deta...A/IMG_1983.JPG



its also missing a host of other details (maneuvering thrusters on the outter edges of the saucer and on the deflector housing) but i'm gonna shutup now

i prob wouldn't know this stuff tbh if i haven't been lurking an ST modeling forum for some time :p
i LOVE the work those guys do, and pale by far with my own. but the Refit was/is a major topic of discussion, especially in the way of corrections for accurateness.

tbh there a LOT of things on these ships i could prob point out if i weren't to lazy and really went at it due to that :p
the Galaxy is prob the only one i just haven't bothered to study much. that and the sov have 2 known configurations that really stick out (aside from the NX excel and the production NCC excel)

This probably does not belong here but I noticed something new on the underside of some of my ships. Might be an issue with my graphics card but in the second picture you will notice the striations on the underside of the saucer are missing from the galaxy next door.

Funny thing is the striations always run the same way no matter the rotation of the ship. Even on that other old school ship where the striations are faintly visible on the underside of the hull.

I noticed it on the Intrepid as well but failed to load a screenie to Photobucket.

.
i think your right saying its the vid card, that looks like a lighting/shadow error.
is it there when you turn off the shadows?

It's a HD5830 card and no all the goodies, including the shadow effects, are on. It's weird because it does not happen on all my ships and only seems to happen near stars in sector space. Only started to happen after a recent patch too.

IDK if its been mentioned yet, but the Galaxy refit, one with saucer separation, on the monarch neck piece the saucer attachment point is off centered slightly to the right. It's more noticeable with the monarch saucer with the monarch neck, the line that goes all the way down the back of the ship is "broken" where it attaches the saucer with the neck. And because its off centered a bit there is a slight gap where saucer attaches to the neck on the far right (circled).

Sorry for the small picture and lousy description, I'm tired lol

@AngelSilhouette

I've got one more for ya... I apologize if you've already covered them (as I really dont want to go through all 106 pages, lol)

Warp Pylons on Galaxy Class (retrofit, not sure if it's on the Tier 3 ship). There is more definition at the support structure of the warp nacelle at the top of the warp pylon. In game. Cannon.

Great list, btw and keen eye!

I read that the Arts Forum is incoming. It will be nice to see this topic and others akin to it have a formal home.
