    Yeah an Odyssey shot seems like a no brainer. :). All the windows are position now and I've started cutting them. Then I got bored and did a render, as usual...

    Damn!! That's very, very nearly photorealistic. Awesome job.

    Thanks, I used a studio HDRI for the lighting on that one and really like the look.

    Engineering hull windows all in, well, top side anyway.

    Thanks very much! Let's just hope no one needs to get off the ship in a hurry, someone forgot to turn the escape pod layer on, doh!

    Now she's looking real. Those refinements worked great. Incredibly looking model.

    I guess the escape pods don't arrive until Tuesday? :p

    So once I started mapping the panel lines out it became clear that the secondary hull shape wasn't quite right. So yeah, had to re-work that, and re-cut all the windows. Great. Anyway, here we are again, top windows all back in place.

    never been a fan of tha Galaxy but holy shit this is by far the best ive ever seen and having sifted thru the pages you have made me a fan! truly inspiring!

    A question about your windows and a general one for modeling trek ships are you just cutting/Boolean/Stenceling the windows into a froozen subD hull?
    (nvm i found the page where you showed some examples ;) )

    Haha thanks! Yeah there's a video a few pages back I think. But in essence; knife project (or stencil) the window on. Inset a bit to get the geo to support a bevel, then extrude in to get the glass. Then I seperate the glass to a new object and delete the 'frame'. The frame is coming from a solidify modifier, and there's a bevel modifier on the mesh too with an angle limit so it auto bevels all the window frames.

    yes i was mostly curious as to how you epic trek modelers go about it when it comes to the windows but i saw it was a freeze then stenciling and dealing with potential geometry issues after ;)

    For anything with more than a handful of windows it's not practical to do it in the subd cage. I suspect there's a way to do it with decals (like mesh machine decals) but I was keen to do mine in full geo. It's a lot of cleanup and its tedious but it gives the best results imo.

    Noted ty! and indeed i considered a textured aproach with my mesh and sure i can make it look good but it will allways look like somewhat of a miniture/subdivided game asset rather then something physical like yours.

    Looking absolutely amazing, I was placed on page 10 when I clicked the thread, scrolling through coming across all the progression images and just jaw dropping every time. lol

    Well call me Micky D, cause I'm lovin it! I could see this used to remaster the series, especially the chonky one from later in the series

    Perfect. Are the panel line cut or texture mapped?
  • lewisnivenlewisniven2167 UKPosts: 415Member
    Thanks @nightfever , everything is proper geometry.

    Got a good chunk of the secondary hull aztecs done, the bits inside the panel lines anyway. Still some more tweaks and details to add but the gist is there.

    So after some back and forth on the discord it became apparent the dirt layer on the roughness map was far too prominent, and was kinda killing the scale of the ship as well as masking the aztecs, so I've taken that down a fair bit;

    Weird little greeble pits, not idea what they are but I took a quick pass. No need to go hyper detailed on these I don't think.
