Why does this conflict exist here, instead of two fans who coexist producing two different projects with similar goals?
I think we all want the same or similar things here, don't we?

I hope that at some point very soon, we can stop rehashing the same discussions and argumentations and drop the idea of the Leviathan in any way being relevant to the Nostromo along with the idea ...

Yes, I know, it sounds weird, but I read (a looooonnnnggg time ago) about the physics of sail ships in space (if they would build such ship).
I distinctively remember the NASA scientist saying that a ...

If memory serves, there were a few distinct explosions during the Nostromo's death throes...that to me would indicate that more than one vessel's core was involved...perhaps in a daisy-chain effect. ...

The screen cap I took of my WIP should still be in the forms somewhere.
I'll take a look when I get a moment.

Veeeery nicely done :-]

I was a little surprised to see you didn't use components to cut down on file size though.

With the ship sharing so many similarities from port to starboard, it's ripe f ...

Nicely done.

Thanks, joberg. I think some time spent redoing the images with a focus toward an attempt at a 3D model, would be
a worthwhile project. I don't have close to the drafting skills that SJ has, but I' ...

Glad to share.

I think the only other part of that particular Nostromo map is the part of the engine room where Ripley scuttles the ship. There IS also a "server room", but was never sh ...
