I've made a bunch of tools to help me make various screens. Pretty much all of them are for handling scaling, which I spend a lot of time on that the makers of the show don't have to (they make a screen specifically for 1 resolution. Anything before Enterprise was 640x480, Enterprise was when they got higher res LCDs and 1080p HDTVs)

There's a documentary that came with Lunar for PS1, and they mentioned for artists typically have an easier time learning to program, than programmers have learning to use graphics tools. Cause to artists, programming is just another tool. As someone who was an artist before I was a programmer, I'm forced to agree.

I'm skipping the text for performance reasons. Automatic scaling is mathematically expensive. To emphasize, the big dividers in the launcher originally used automatic scaling, and the framerate suffered significantly until I cached the size. Caching here, would be pointless as the size would be different every frame. Okuda forgive me.

Received via Trek Tropes:

Ensign SMOKEY: too participate in a morality test would be to agree that morality is something that is dictated by a outside source rather than an inherit understanding and guidance from what resonates as what is right andv true. by refusing the. test I make the statement that as far as morality is concerned you have no power to judge me i

heh.

I got a ton of work on the Temporal Prime Directive editor done. It makes a copy of the data when I click Play and restores it when I click Stop. It can also convert all the data to and from plain text (which is required for saving and loading). All that's left is actually making it save/load as simple INI files.

I'm going to have to download Fraps or something so I can show you guys the editor running.

Got a ton of work on the Temporal Prime Directive animation editor. It's neat watching my work in motion so quickly.

I just have to get it so I can set the start and end positions separately. Not too hard. Then get saving and loading done.

Then the hard part... Making the animations and drawing all the bits.

So this is the panel I'm working on. I have everything drawn except for the center circle. I am putting it off, but it will be "easy"

Each anchor in Temporal Prime Directive has a vector image ID which tells it which shape to draw. Since the list of shapes starts at 0, I use negative numbers to tell it to draw circles. No sense wasting the vector engine on a simple shape. The only hard parts are the circles with connections between them.

I never noticed before, but those interlinked circles in the centre look very similar to Borg interface panels.

The Enterprise one was what reminded me of my age-old question, which I think I came up with the first time I saw the TOS one you mentioned.

A quick demo.

-The reason it didn't match the desired position is cause I left the distance transition speed at 0, so it couldn't reach the end position
-The reason it didn't show me changing the orientation desired angle is apparently I didn't code that yet :/

Stardate 1601.28: After a year of extensive research, conservation work on the original studio model of the USS Enterprise is now underway in the Museum’s spacedock. Our goal is to stabilize the model and return it to its appearance from August of 1967, during the filming of the episode The Trouble with Tribbles, which marked the last ...Continue Reading

I've ported the engine which I'm calling the Temporal Prime Directive, to VB6 which will let me make animations on PC, much faster than compiling the app. It took less time than porting VB6 code to B4A

A page for my LCARS UI clone for Android
Introduction
A clone of Mike Okuda's famous LCARS graphical user interface

Gene Roddenberry's contract includes a clause allowing any company able to create functioning technology to use the name. As such, I have created a functioning LCARS UI.

I have included a few layouts, and intend to do more. Some I can't take a screenshot of, cause screenshots are taken too slow and mix frames together since the program supports animations.

Feel free to contact me with suggestions
