    Still working on this slowly but surely... how I wish I had the real thing so I could measure some bits. Might not end up perfect but hopefully close enough! So many greebles left to do!

    Actually the Galactica shot made me smile.

    Even without the Galactica, that's awesome.

    Nice. Though, I have the whole series on DVD or Blu-Ray. (I think Blu-Ray)

    Well well what have we here...haven't touched the Galatica yet, needs some material and a bit of modeling love...but so excited to see her in the shot!!

    Conversion complete...enough polys for distant shots at least...

    I'm curious - Having not examined the model, what did you feel needed improving? Where were the poly's deficient?

    When comparing with photos, the smaller greebles that are there are not the correct ones, there's just more "essence" of what is there, probably due to lack of reference. Also it's only around 2 million polys, very lightweight for the Galactica, so if I get in too much farther, you will definitely start seeing polys. However it's probably just fine for my shot, in my video, but wouldn't hold up to some close flybys

    Lack of reference on the Galactica? Ah, no. ;-)

    2M is larger than the one built for the modern remake. If someone were smart they could up-res variations for camera angles and maybe come away with 4 med-res ships at ~1.5, and a few for close-ups depending on the shots needed.

    It's more of the rounded and cylindrical greebles are like 8 sided, so that would stand out to me..thankfully these days with round edge shaders it can simulate more detail like chamfers so doesnt need to be quite so high poly.

    Animation also allows you to get by with more than still shots do. If something is in motion, it's harder to pick out low poly bits than if you have a nice freeze frame where you can pick out every bit.

    Back onto this guy, slowly but surely!! Also rerendering and improving some shots in my video, I hope to be done with my animtion this week or next....finish it up for the year!

    Hallmark has a Galactica ornament coming (TOS).

    I always liked the Galactica shuttle. It's the first shuttle I remember seeing that could actually carry a worthwhile amount of people and/or cargo.

    Tangentially related, I've been working on some planets...fully procedural with no bitmaps. Pretty pleased with what I can do now. It's generally base on noise warps of various typesn5y177vlfq9v.jpg

    That looks great. Procedural planets for the win. :)

    Finished most of the top greebles of the shuttle! And an image dump of some wireframes and more procedural planet tests!

    Somehow, I could see the Landmaster driving off a forward ramp of that thing…Ark II and Seeker the same anyway

    About as far as I'm gonna get this year, but very close to finishing! Mostly just greebles in the bottom rear to finish! Man what a slog!

    Well I'm calling this video done!! I fixed and tweaked a ton of stuff since last you guys probably saw (maybe only I will notice), but will continue on with my shuttle as well! Just wanted to get this out the door since it's a new year. Enjoy! The Galactica and Basestar models are by FolkLM
