Okay I see it, yeah you are right pretty much similar ... That is a miss on my part. Maybe one day I would go back and play Star Control. Man! I am so looking forward to Elite Dangerous. That will be an epic over again.
Right on , thank you . When I build / model a ship ( you know they are all real in some part of the multiverse ) I focus on the general , right out of assembly line look . I try not to focus on the Epic one , like, out of thousands of YT 1300 , there is that one, falcon ! So since you call one an octopus , I shall build that epic one nick named octopus !
