    Only a few significant details left now, plus a load of micro greebling, then windows, materials... and maybe some kind of moving pictures.

    Cheers guys. Starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel now! Hopefully not a train.

    I haven't completely decided yet. Tempted to try some procedural windows to see if I can get a good look. Not relishing the idea of modelling them all, but we'll see.

    He lives! Good to see you around, man! :) You should swing by the SFM Discord and say hi some time.

    Looking great, @Martocticvs. Those looks like an absolute nightmare to get right but she's looking sensational. B)

    Lots of greebling has been done. I don't enjoy this kind of thing much, so it's slowed me down more than normal :) Done with it now though - only the windows left to do now! (and materials, obviously)

    I applaud your use of harsh lighting for space stuff. I think it makes the Warbird look really good.

    You can really see the scale with this model, well done!

    Agreed.
    Nicely done thus far.
    Which modeling software are you using?
    Cinema4D or something else?

    Looking GREAT. Mr. Probert designed some beautiful ships and you're doing this one justice.

    Yes, C4D. Rendered in Redshift.


    I have now placed all the windows - now to add in some variety and turn lots of them off :)

    I'm trying to imagine wiring the studio model up with its fiberoptic lights and wondering how much SAN was lost in the process.

    I'd hate to be the guy at the ship wash that has to wash all those windows...

    She looks wonderfull Paul!
    Windows were cut in the hull, or made with textures?
    Martocticvs
  • MartocticvsMartocticvs410 Posts: 521Member
    Neither! Since the original had all the fibres sticking out a small amount, I decided to have mine set in a slightly-protruding frame. Completely avoids the need for any cutting, and looks more authentic to the original miniatures too.

    The windows make use of a window box shader to fake a room behind. I made 11 different room sets, and close-up using EXRs they look pretty good...:

    but from a distance they read terribly badly, so I opted for PNGs instead, and sadly the effect is largely lost:

    but honestly, it will do. You don't want to get any closer to the ship than this anyway really.


    I spent the last couple of days walking around the ship turning off lots of lights. These Romulans have a habit of leaving them on when they're not at home.

    So I'm basically done with modelling now. Just a few things to tidy up before I move on to maps and materials and wrapping it all up.

    I've looked closely at the original model and your model and you've really done a great job of making it virtually identical. You owe humanity a set of reference orthos. B) Just saying.

    Very amazing. I like that Box Shader idea, I think that's how they did the implied interior on the default aircraft in FS2020. :D I recently switched to Redshift and I was blown away at the performance increase even using effects like reflections and refractions that would tank my old CPU-based renderer. lol
