Meteor shower LED icicle lights. I plan to open them up after Easter and see if I can modify the chip. Maybe maybe not but it will have to wait.

The lights I bought

I have made some wall enclosures and wanted to update everyone on the status of the bridge refit/redesign. The stations are getting more sturdy and the walls are being changed from foam board to plywood and 2x4s. This really ups the feel of the bridge. Here are some work in progress shots of the bridge walls and other stuff I worked on recently.

Lifted front station seats, they were too low and now are just the right height.

3d rendering of what the ship will look like, essentially.

One of the 4ft wide by nearly 8 feet tall wall sections as shown in the rendering as well as how the top bolts to the bottom for storage/transportation needs. These pictures were taken before we adjusted the bolt to have a nut on top and on bottom to allow easier tightening and to act as a cable management option.

Looking good!

It is hard to tell from the photo -- is the wall painted OSB, or is there another surface treatment on top of the OSB before the paint?

Just grey painted OSB. I had intended to put drywall spackle on before painting but I decided not to because most of the wall will be covered by greebles anyway.

Moving those car seats around must be no joke!
The wall paneling really adds another dimension of immersion, great job!

Thanks, everything is incredibly heavy. The Con provided lots of help in getting the stuff from my house to the Con and back.

Larger panels are 6ft by 4ft, smaller panels are 2 ft by 4 ft all made from 2x4s and 1/2 inch plywood

The sides are designed to be pinned together and bolted in some places.

The top is made to add extra stability and prevent injury in the event of a heavy duty bump aka someone falling into the wall.

I'll post the 3d rendering later as well as a more in depth guide regarding the build process. Revisions are being made based on lessons learned but overall it was a great experience.

Did give a look at 1/4" ply for reduced weight?

Looked at it but the strength was needed for the next part of the process where I cut holes and add screens to the panels.

Your greeble game is next level!

And you got female officers, which is no joke... nice job, my wife's official line is that she likes the "idea" of the game and is glad that I have "something to do with my time". 

On game day she shows up for a couple drinks and whatever I made for the crew mess and then leaves!

This was at Conglomeration SciFi Con in Louisville. It was a blast and I highly recommend coming if you're not busy on Easter next year.

It is a laid back style of convention with lots of people in cosplay, the special guests mingle they don't just sign autographs for hours and they have snacks and drinks included, and many people who have played Artemis but only at the convention last year so they were a bit rusty but they knew the general concept.

We ran quite a few games through the ship, played mostly siege and a few instances of Border war. Next year we will have scheduling a bit more lined out. This year we set the timer for 25 minutes and had enough time to explain to new players and walk them through some of the concepts of the game in the 30 min timespan. Several repeat players. Lots of kids, lots of adults. I found it to be problematic when mixing some kids and some adults that were not their parents as each group approached the game differently, with the adults treating it more serious and the kids just wanting to blow stuff up or rock back in the car seats and hang out. I'm planning on having a word with the person in charge of scheduling and setting aside times for 16 and pl or something similar. The game isn't adult themed or anything like that, I just think the experience for some of the players is better when all the players approach the game from a similar mindset.

Thanks for posting the photos! I love the décor! It's giving me a very attack-submarine-meets-Nostromo-kind of impression.

Also, the instruction cards are a great idea.

That's sort of the look I was going for, like a non federation ship, love trek but their ships are too polished on the inside. The nostromo is more of a working class ship, something that feels lived in rather than like an office.

This year the decor will be upgraded to make it more purposeful. The frame/walls being together was my focus for 2019, now I can revise the look to make it better and if I do it right, interchangeable so I can give the ship a makeover and turn it into a Klingon themed ship or a pirate, or a submarine.

This is a project that will never be finished

Here was my hasty server and streaming PC station
