    Its weird how the connie is huge but also kinda small at the same time, but the galaxy is just incomprehensibly ginormous. The trees really give a sense of scale.

    Thanks mylex :)

    Bottom of the saucer aztecs done, also sorted out the UDIM workflow so we're back on that. Some self illum lighting added too

    Really appreciate you posting your texturing technique. Does the mask control anisotropy as well as reflection intensity and glossiness?

    No problem! So I'm using the greyscale masks purely to drive gradient maps and such like in Substance Designer to actually generate the textures. I'm using Blenders Principled BSDF material and PBR outputs from substance, so there's only actually 2 maps being generated, a Base Colour and Roughness.

    Anisotropy is something I always leave alone, and reflection intensity/glossiness aren't variables in PBR materials, or at least this implementation of them.

    So for the saucer aztecs, here's the mask I baked out:

    Then this is the exported result from substance:
    eowg1p2k1gly.png

    I'm deliberately leaving the small markings (the red triangles and the little lines) off the roughness map so that those details only resolve up close, stops it looking too busy I think.

    As you can see, the roughness map is doing pretty much all the work. :)

    Thanks, sounds like I should keep this in mind when moving over to Corona's new Corona Physical Material.

    Stunning work. I echo that statement about this being one of the best builds of this ship - ever!

    Just a word, a masterpiece. The close-ups are brilliant.

    I would like to see some animations with this model.

    Keep it up

    I absolutely love how well it holds up when you get up in close.

    Thanks, I'll definitely be rendering some animations....when I get a new GPU!

    Thanks, I wanted to do something texture wise that would really bare close up scrutiny. It does mean that so far I'm on 12 4k texture maps but nevermind :p

    If you are doing this in blender and you are not leaning too hard cycles specific features, this might produce a good Eevee animation render, especially for space flybys where lack of global illumination might not be that big a deal.

    I always loved Aridas Sophia’s Balson secondary hull…but I thought it could use a wider saucer to balance it out:
    https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/publiusrs-starship-designs-large-images.260404/
    With Raan type nacelles…maybe that could be a good 1701-A for you…
  • lewisnivenlewisniven2439 UKPosts: 456Member
    Pylons textured, plus added details to the nacelles. Some slight tweaks of the overall hull material. Interiors added, plus a bunch of geo cleanup done. Not far to go now

    Very impressive. I admire the time and effort. Truly a work befitting the Constitution Refit.

    She looks amazing! Love all the detail you've into it in the mesh and up close. The texture work absolutely pays off.
