    Lit windows really makes it come together, looking forward to seeing the hull and textures get that final polish!

    I know I’m late, but beautiful ship. The Sovereign-class is my favorite starship! Great job! 🖖🏾

    I really like this. Any thought to rendering the glass, or would that just kill performance too hard? When I eventually do this, I am thinking of varying the light color temperature and brightness subtly to make the lighting less perfectly uniform.

    There is actually a glass material over the windows, but it's difficult to see it when the rooms are lit. It is set to "Thin Walled" so there is no refraction. This keeps the interiors from distorting and speeds up render times. Varying color and brightness sounds like a cool way to add visual interest and realism. :)

    Since creating the textures for the Sovereign is a real bear and not too much fun to watch I'm starting another simultaneous project for my videos. This will be the Federation Class dreadnought (no way am I abandoning the Sovvy; I put too much work into it and I really want to see it complete).

    Starting the saucer:

    I imported the nacelles from my TOS Enterprise build.

    I hope you retcon the dreadnought design a little bit, I _hate_ that the top and bottom of hte saucer are mirrored in profile, the design works so much better with a Connie-Classic saucer profile :)

    I agree that the Connie saucer is a nicer design, but for the most part I want to be true to the plans, and I added some details to the lower saucer to help break up the symmetry a bit. :)

    Meanwhile I made an animation test for my TOS Enterprise's nacelles:

    The flashing is perhaps a bit too strong. But otherwise OK.
    Make everything a bit softer. 😎
