I really wish that the OHM administrators would do something about whatever it is that's preventing add-on creators such as Trekkie from successfully uploading their work.

Interesting design!
It's something I'd fly for solar system exploration, perhaps with a more "current tech" skin.
Suggestion - add shuttle craft for planetary landings. Perhaps have a small cargo dock at the back for that.

The Ocean class has a large two deck shuttle bay in its astern.





And using it for colony building makes absolutely sense in its context...

Could you put some fictive "lashing" points around the inner surface of the three huge bulk storage bays? Could look nicer instead of some flat texture there and give a better orientation when moving cargo into the places.



Maybe I can resume doing a generic DLL for such Starfleet Museum vessels. I am now placed on 50% reduced working hours for at least the next two months because of Corona and finally have a new notebook to play Orbiter again. :)

Yes a .dll would be great, but Fred's Vessel Builder would also work for this kind of ship.
It allows for multiple cameras, lights, some logic, etc.
And is fully Orbiter 2016 compatible.

Please do. It's like Spacecraft4 (same type of parameters), but you define things from inside orbiter, using a dialog.

It's not prefect, and the autosave system is problematic (at least for me).
If orbiter crashes your vessel reverts to an older backup, but the scenario definitions might not match anymore. When that happens you are stuck, because orbiter CTDs at launch due to the mismatch.

But since it still uses text files to store configs, so you can hack things manually if needed ;)

For simple vessels such as these, there should be no problems tough.
It's perfect to add blinky lights, spotlights, etc.

And you can have logic - let's say trigger an animation when you apply thrust or when you dock.

Can you be more specific ?
Are you starting from zero ?
to be honest i dont know where to start with it.. i tried the Template one and to put my Classname and then the Vesselbuilder Module but i think im missing something:lol:

From memory, but should get you started:

- Rename template to "Enterprise" ;)
- Open a basic scenario (just the DG on orbit).
- Using the scenario editor add a new ship - it will be "Enterprise", under VesselBuilder.
- Press "space" to start adding parameters (the vessel is empty, adding a mesh is a good thing to do first).
- When you save the scenario and exit the editor, it will save the changes made to your vessel.
- To work further, just press "space" with the "Enterprise" vessel selected. It opens edit mode.

Trekkie, did you get my last response? I asked if you had plans to update your Github account any time soon.
