# 1 Fix The Prometheus!!!
03-02-2011, 05:47 PM
Please fix the Prometheus eyesore of hull geometry already!

50% of the entire "lower hull" looks NOTHING even REMOTELY like it should!!!

Here's how the same section looks when seperated.... and it really does not look good and becomes instantly even more noticable.

I have been fighting for this since like the Beta and Cryptic has yet to even acknowledge the error!!!
Despite having done extensive work on both the Galaxy, Sovereign, Intrepid and Defiant.

I do not think its an unreasonable demand at all given that the new MVAM console is going to cost 500 emblems as well as be a C-Store item.
The very least that can be done here is at least make the Prometheus look presentable.

I honestly still don't see an issue. The ship looks pretty epic to me.

You may not see it, but it's definitely there.

Alright, I'll admit, I see how the back end of the lower hull does not flatten out how it should.
I see how the hull/deflector part is not all that cylindrical.
And I see how the deflector part should end in kind of a "top of a silo" fashion.

I guess its the gamer in me that doesn't feel like there's an issue.

The aft ventral there is the most glaring issue of all, the gometry is nothing at all even similar to what it should be.

It does need to be tweeked.

I wish MVAM was out already so we can check to see if the geometry is the same.

Agreed. Cryptic, please take all the dollars you're going to make from the console, and reinvest it into paying somebody to pull overtime to fix the Prometheus model. Thx.

It has been nearly 40 years since the original design. In 40 years, the odds are that some things would have changed a bit

I look at it that way for most of the ships.

Changes happen... cut them some slack.

The model is in no way as bad as the Galaxy class was when it came out (shudder) or such. They will most likely get to it sometime. Captain Logan is the bomb and I have no doubt that it will be done at some time.

But, if they have to choose between flattening out the back of the ship... or making new game content.......

Please, that argument became invalid the moment they started fixing up other canon ships to painstaking detail.
To add a C-Store item to this ship without correcting serious model flaws is just unacceptable.
