    Welcome back bro! How you doing?

    Hello Starship, how are ya? Long time...
    I am doing great, good to be back, going to be here in moderation of course. I just got burned out on LW and life seemed to turn up the volume so things just kept me away from 3d. Plus it didn't help I found World of Tanks which took up all my spare time... that game is addictive...lol
    How are you doing Brother?

    Welcome back gpdesigner. (First thought was someone necroposted.) Yes DS9 LIVES!
    Yep, .. going to finally finish this Space Station off, I think the new found interest in nodes has re-engaged me in 3d again... going to see if I can complete the texturing in nodes where possible, wish me luck.
    Glad to hear you are back on her.
    Yes, So far I have textured the Pylons and the docks on the Pylons now I am wrapping up the outer docking ring, here are a few shots of completed progress...

    Thank you all for the warm welcome home...

    Hello all,
    I'm back...lol
    I hope everyone is doing well... I put down Lightwave for a while as I was getting burned out big time... lots of unfinished models floating around in my hard drive and computer time was becoming premium
    I am getting a twitch to get back into this but it will be slow going untilI get back into the swing of Lightwave again..
    I chose this DS9 to finish first, The Mesh is done and I remember starting on the image maps... going to chip away at it slowly until it is finished...
    Only took 12 years to do... but hey who's counting...

    Been working on my maps for the habitat Ring, but life seems to be keeping me from doing 3D.
    This is what I have been up to for the last 2 weeks, Home projects out the wazoo..

    Outer ring is done, now to move onto the inner ring... have to start that from scratch, now image maps, no textures not even sure I did the poly optimization on it yet...lol
    Here is a before and after shot of the small docking stations on the outer ring

    Oh and one more thing... I saw a bit of detail in the series photo's that I may want to model... unfortunately the detail envolves the windows of the ship... all of the windows... I may remodel them, I don't know, I have to see how I feel
    Here is what I have:

    I had some for thought and added the oval bits in, but left them flat... here is the series:

    All I need to do is bevel them out a bit and round the edges... but all over the outer portion of the ship....

    and then I spotted this:

    this is what I have

    Anyway this is the inner ring and I haven't gotten there yet so my options are open...
    personally, I think I am going to change them... :)

    Welcome back, look forward to your progress!

    Thanks Starrigger, I can't say I will devote as much time as I use to when I was doing this 24/7, but I have some free time now and want to get back into finishing this.
    I added some detail to the main dock on the outer ring, moved around a few details and added a few more just to make it look more full.
    I am afraid that I will be modelling and tweaking while doing textures... hope I can remember how to put this station back together.

    Pluto station is still going. And going. And going.

    I wonder how big it is now... but you have to admit it is awesome... maybe someone will want to use it in a film as green screen backdrop... that would be great to see.

    This morning I was laying on the first set of uv images and I ran into the lift elevator for the Runabout. The outer hull is solid, there is no interiors to my DS9, but I do want to do an animation and I may need the lift elevators to be functional, which means there needs to be some sort of interior.
    a while back I downloaded a Runabout from Thomas Slanitz and thatnk goodness he built it somewhat to scale... I loaded it into my DS9 section and the universe made total sense.... things built to scale are beautiful below are the 2 images, followed by screen shots of the TV Runabout Hangar, the versions are so damn close it was almost like I knew what I was doing... So the question is do I build a low res cavity for the hangar or just have a small elevator shaft type deal seeing how you wont see the interior that much anyway. = save on poly's
    What do you think?
