Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Thank you. And, yeah, the shadowplay is pretty amazing. Not always what I expect; but, nice to look at. Definitely gives a sense of realism to the images.






This is the latest. You can see here the work has now been done in crafting the basis for the sides of the watertanks.. essentially bulkheads that will have a pressure door access
once finished. It's not on the plans; but, I don't know how you have a storage space that large with no access to do
inspections or cleaning as needed.

The first of the support structural frames can be seen between bulkheads in view as well. This will wind up being much added to and tweaked; but, the base is there now to work from. Both took quite a bit of time to derive; but, happy so far with the outcome. The last image shows a set of water towers in place. These look small to the space; but, combined with small pumps on the other decks, they'll serve to move water quite well throughout the ship. They need some work yet as the material broke on import and needs reapplied; but, very happy with this as well. Next will be work to the floors in this section. Haven't decided exactly how to do them yet; but, have some really good ideas brewing.

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP












Been working on finishing the plumbing for the water storage section of deck 4. You can see in the first
few images some thinking going on as to how I was going to handle floor bracing in the exposed area.
Didn't like the first approach, dumped it and went for something similar to what I did with the framing on
the Bridge deck. Overall, seems to be coming along well, so.. back to work. Enjoy!

Brilliant stuff! Will you be including access points for personnel? Small crawl ways and such? Or do you think it would be more of a remove ceiling and wall panels for accessing any points of issue? That actually seems to make the most sense with TOS ships.

But ya- good work. I'm really enjoying this.

Thank you. There will be access point(s); but, I haven't made a decision yet as whether to Go deck 5 corridor access or deck 4 crawl space. There are advantages to both; but, I think I'm liking deck 5 access better. Neither is on the floorplans; so, ..

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP







Thanks again

This is the latest. Still working on cleanup of the deck 4 framing. Big job; but, had to be done in order
to have a base mounting point for the deck 2 & 3 framing. The Blue necklace shaped spar will be the
central mount point for the framing on the upper decks. Since that is now in place, I've already derived
a base model to make the framing supports from for the upper decks. I also split the deck 4 walls for
inner and outer hull sections. The last image shows this as well as work done to the deck 4 flooring.
Been a very long and busy day of editing. Very pleased with the result though there's still a long way
to go to complete this section of the ship. Plowing forward.

And, Blssdwlf, yeah, the polycount passed batSh*tnuts a long time ago. I don't even want to know where it is at the moment myself lol

Outer ribbing has all been trimmed and cleaned. They were booleaned to mate up with the "necklace"
ring I spoke of earlier. A few more mods will be needed to allow for the PWT feed through the aft
of the deck; but, no sweat. The last images show the buildup of the ribbing for decks 2 and 3 in
progress. Back to work

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Ok, still working the superstructure for decks 2-4; but, nearing completion.



This was in dozens of pieces as of the time this render was done. After a week worth of eyeballing,
measuring and stitching bits together, this is now largely in two pieces and I may have another update
yet tonight. I rechecked position on the windows and resultantly dropped the height of the window
placement on deck 2. The outer and inner hull sections have been cut to match the new placement.
Will have to mod the lowpolly skins as well; but, such is life.. Still workin it tonight; so, back at it.

Nice!

The window placements do offer a challenge though!

Re: NCC-1701 USS Enterprise Deck by Deck - WIP

Still workin; but, here's another update in place..


Still have a number of things to do; but, everything has been combined at this point. Now I have to
mod it for the bridge deck floor, gangway and the turbolift passthrough/support. Framing for the
observatory door is already done.
