You may remember - some seven month ago I got a little overambitous (see here). And though I stopped the project due to talent, reallife and site issues, I still have it on my laptop. Fahres, who created the ship for me, was so friendly not to nag about it, but the project is still working in the back of my head. And I know that at least the idea grabbed hold in some private installs and the SB34 mod.
Well, what is the status of the Dandelion Class? The ship is ingame, it's normal weapons and mine working perfectly. No wonder - the ship is quality work, if not mine.
But the real uber-feature , it's "special" mines, still don't work. I failed. I know there is a way to make them work like I want them to, but I seem to have too limited skills or there is a brick wall I don't see. Still, I would like to finish it somehow and share it with the community.
If any experienced member who knows its way around special weapons is willing to help, it should not be too much work to get the Federation Minelayer "Dandelion Class" out of Spacedock.

finally a news post! just hoped to see it done some when.
errr ok intresting why is it called blowball class in the pics?
because it was named blowball class in the beginning - but our native english around here convinced me that the name had some "side-effects"... read the original thread for the whole story :)
DE: if you send the whole thing along to my SB34 e-mail address, I can take a look at it for you. I set up the McMillan class in the compilation mod as a poor man's dandelion, and I'd love to bring the Dandelion to the game. :cool:
you profile just shows an msn adress, kid. and I am not a SB34 member.
The model looks quite nice (more for a cargo / colony ship that much else), but the classname... hardly going to strike fear into a Klingon Warship. =p
please be aware the name comes from the french language - you are invited to translate it:). and believe me, this little ugly ship with the not-really- quite-cosy name will be remembered by any klingon captain once it has left the docks.
Nice to know this ship still exists somewhere, hopefully someone will be able to get it finished and released :)
Anyone know whatever happened to this one?
I remember it being looked forward to by a number of people, if anyone knows its current state/resting place i'd love to know. I'm disappointed we havent seen it on the site yet!
