Nice to see you active again, hopefully the modeling bug will bite as well.

Some random upper panel details. I should make all those panels unique UVWs so the texture flow is not continuous across all those panels.



It is mostly going to be this sort of thing all over the ship it seems. I might do some work on the saucer rim but I think the bulk of the modeling is done, unless I forgot something somewhere.

Small update, those panels are now all uniquely mapped. One thing I am finding is max keeps copying materials instead of the proper instancing of them so for example the spine that contains the aft torps have no AO on the B state hull material.







some vs renders.

Again more small changes all round. Here it is some markings and little decals all over, then merging in all the unique sided stuff back into the neck object. I also added registry decals to the docking ring vs greeked shapes.







Been thinking maybe I should add a slight frosting to the ship windows as they often appear as not being there unless the scene light causes any glare.

Small teaser as I go about seeing if there is anything I need to fix or needs doing. Almost lost this mesh as it was erroring out and causing crashes at one point.

Bit of something I am mucking around with. Might alter it and go with some other config.
First one which was too big.



A bit smaller but still a bit large vs a ship. 100X130ft


BTW it is a unmanned relay. Attempting to make it airtight accessible for when someone DOES need to do work on it.

I think I have something worth while blocked out now. There are some more elements I will want to add in over time but I will probably spend the next session detailing it out. The central disc space has enough room for a few crewman to access and do any upgrades repairs etc as well as ladder ways to the reactor and the upper transceiver the half ring is large enough to have a laddered crawl space as well. It would mostly be a conduit path to any add ons that might be placed on that "hoop" It is about 86X96ft now. I could probably make it smaller but I think this will do.

Girder bits to add some visual detail to the subspace antenna array. I think I have the bracing pattern of opposites right. Guess I coulda done all cyl for it and used some of the mental ray rounder cheats on it all. It really ups render times but I think overall it should create some more visual fun to something that could just be a armored box with bits stuck on.





Hrm maybe I wont use the MR mat rounder, looks a bit naff. '



I plan to try to get less of the armagosa look as I had forgotten that the model was reused as a Cardassian coms array for DS9.

This is a nice little project. I like the design so far.

Moving things about and adding little things.


Added some of those smaller antenne arrays like what is on the STD array for the heck of it. It wont be seen in my use of this thing. Original plan was to have a directional dish in this spot or a array of coils.

Not much work as I got a case of gut rot this last few days. . . .

here is a update from yesterday morning before the cats went in to be removed of their life's purpose. . . . . The kits seem to think they have to make up for a lost day. Anyhow I am now about 3 or 4 days behind on this now.

Worked in details on the shaft to the fusion reactor and the piping to and fro. Then skeletonized the outer frame. I think I just need to work on the TX array (the doughnut thing) and work on the central bit some more and this should be near done.

Big ol gold dish thingy.
Still a bit rough but it should convey the idea.


Also refined the microwave dome farms.

Mess of small changes.

Working in a mess of small detail stuff as I go over the ship. Added some interior elements on parts of the ship that show in common views such as the ceilings in the cargo ops rooms and the upper gangway in the arboretum. Also added some textured planes in side the arboretum to add some greenery and create some light bounce of the right color on the walls. I dunno yet if I will position a real layout in there as it would need a tight shot at a specific angle to really see in and define what your looking at. I also added photometric lighting gizmos to light that area vs the lum materials as that large space causes slow down and odd effects with the lum materials.





Also decided to use the car shader to add glittery paint on the pennant. I realized that some of the pennants are metallic silver so to mimic it I figured the glitter shader when rendered out at reasonable distances would work out and stand out more than just a "silver paint" material.
