Hi there!

You know, it's been 6 months since the big forum migration, so we'd really appreciate it, if you could take a moment to let us know how we're doing in our occasional feedback thread. :)

Not a reboot

    Nice. I like the design... it's a refreshing take from the phaser "titties" TOS and the films had.

    I just wanted to do something different.
    UPDATE...
    Not getting too much done because I’m spending most of my time cleaning the house. Soon it will time to get another dumpster to get rid of more dead people ****. I did get the textures on the front of the phaser started.

    UPDATE...
    Tried to finish off some textures of my U.S.S. Franklin type ship. It didn’t go that well. Some of the textures are squashed a bit. I may have to give it a rest and re-unwrap it at a later time. I’ll start on another part of the ship.

    UPDATE...
    Did some very minor texture work on the warp engines but mainly took care of rooms behind the windows of the secondary hull.

    UPDATE...
    I was gonna post this yesterday but I didn’t get the chance. So here is the last bit of work done for last month. It’s mostly temporary for now. Just wanted to see if i got the unwrap right.

    *whew* took me about two days to go front to back on this thread! Good work on all the ships!

    Beautiful work, Xfozzboute!
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute436 Posts: 1,550Member
    UPDATE...
    The texture on the warp engine is now finished.
    2924.jpg
    I also decided to add a little more detail to the back of the ship.

    Loving the work on the (interior) window design... going to have to steal that concept a bit... :)
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute436 Posts: 1,550Member
    Steal away my boy, steal away

    UPDATE...
    While doing textures I noticed this area had gone a bit wonky so I decided that rebuilding it would be fast than fixing it. I’ll get back to textures tomorrow.

    UPDATE...
    I textured the little thing by the nav dish. I also started on the hull.
    2927.jpg
    Another shot of the hull textures. It’s moving right along.

    UPDATE...
    Finished up the back of the ship and added textures to the impulse engine. I also finally added a name.
    2929.jpg
    I also did the textures on the bridge.

    UPDATE...
    I finished the back of the saucer.
    2932.jpg
    And I also did most the top of the saucer.

    Loving the Textures work X, as always.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute436 Posts: 1,550Member
    Thank you.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute436 Posts: 1,550Member
    UPDATE...
    Just for the hell of it I decided to do a top down view to make make sure things look right.
    2934.jpg
    I finished up the top of the saucer by adding some black squares and doing textures for the first step up on the saucer.
    2935.jpg
    I also started on the lower saucer. I also realised it should be 1706 not 1701 so I’ll have to fix a few things.

    UPDATE...
    I finished up the lower saucer and worked on the rim. I need to make a few adjustments to the saucer rim. I might change the texture on the saucer I’m not too sure about right now.

    UPDATE...
    Pretty much done with the basic textures. Just need to tweak a few things and then I can start adding a small amount dirt and grime.

    Thank you.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute436 Posts: 1,550Member
    UPDATE...
    Starting working on some grime. I kept the clean textures as well so I can mix and match if I felt like it.

    UPDATE...
    Added textures to the bridge.
    2941.jpg
    Also added to the lower saucer. Still working on the bussards. The two here are imported from two different ships but they are acting nothing like they did in the files.

    Might want to compare the exposure control settings and the image control ramp between the older files and this one. Those can affect glows and other things. Then again that is if your using Mental Ray EC vs the other choices. Wont help anything though if you upgraded max anywhere along the line as many settings change the resulting renders differently so a file mad in 2010 and tuned to render perfectly will look completely different if rendered out in 2013.

    Not sure if you work from a new template or have one preset on projects. I saved over the default.max file that it loads as a new project as I change a tonne of settings every time.

    Most of my files have the exact same setting.
    UPDATE...
    Got the secondary hull done. Only have the warp engines to do now.

    looking good.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute436 Posts: 1,550Member
    Thank you.

    UPDATE...
    Forgot, I still needed to finish the top of the saucer so that’s just what I did. Tomorrow I’ll do the warp engines and I’ll actually be done.

    Looking good.
    You know your nacelles have the reg of NCC-1706 while your saucer is NCC-1701.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute436 Posts: 1,550Member
    Damn I thought I fixed that. It's always something.
