has anybody thought of adding ships from the Star Trek universe?

Myself, I would love to have a Klingon Bird of Prey to fly around in....

A long time ago, Shipbuilder did make a [EliteWiki] Constitution-Class Heavy Cruiser - it's still available to download but it is very old …

What next? Babylon 5? Or BSG, perhaps? <grins>

No. Just no. This is its own universe.

Well, there is still the Romulan Bird Of Prey, not Klingon but close enough I hope :wink:

As much as I know we got several ships from Star Wars, including the Falcon. Furthermore there are Cylons from Battlestar Galactica and a lot ships from less known movies / stories, as mentioned before you are free to create your personal universe, if you dislike ships just don't download them. :lol:

I never said I disliked any...

but you made the comment that Star Trek ships shouldn't be allowed because Oolite is it's own universe... which kind of sounds like you want it both ways. Don't allow the ships YOU don't like, but if anyone else dislikes something they are free to NOT download it.

And I believe I already mentioned that I do not know how to create ships for this game.

Instead of rep[eating what was already said, why don't you point me to a tutorial on creating ships?

(It should be pointed out that the board's quote-attribution system is currently broken, so it can be a bit tricky to see who said what and who replied to whom.)

I dont really have a problem with people creating whichever OXPs they want, but I think the critisism is valid. The Elite universe has its own style of ships, and at least for me it makes it very weird to see the Enterprise, star fighters or whatever else flying about. As you say, for that reason I just dont install them.

For me those things only make sense in a full conversion, I no more want to see cobras flying around in starwars than I want to see a tie fighter attacking a romulan bird of prey. But thats just me.

using Blender isn't the issue. While I'm no pro at it, I can and have used it to convert models on occasion (I normally use Bryce for actually working on a model, as it's a little more intuitive, if much less powerful)

The issue is that I have no idea how to take a model made in any 3D program and turn it into an OXP.

Is there any beginners tutorial or maybe a thread here on the forum that discusses the basics of making OXPs and specifically ones to add new models to the universe?

And just to quell any outrage, I'm not looking to import the entire Star Trek Universe, or make a full conversion like Vega Trek did with Vega Strike... I just want ONE SHIP. Because I love the looks of that ship.

I was under the impression this thread was a "Suggestion Box" (wondering where I got that idea from) and figured maybe somebody that makes ships for the game would like the challenge. I guess not.

If I can find the info on how to do it myself, then perhaps I will. But it's not making the model that I need info about, it's how to make that model into an OXP that the game can use...
