I always loved the TOS corridors better. These make sense higher on a saucer.
I did too when I was a kid, until I realized they were way to big to be on a ship that size and were better suited to a Galaxy class than a Constitution. The corridors found on the refit, IMO, were a much more efficient and realistic use of internal space.

Re: Refit Enterprise Interiors (WIP) - Unreal 3 Engine

I'm a little late to the party, but great work as usual!

I'm curious though, about your officer’s lounge,

I know from reading through http://rigel7studios.blogspot.com/ of the compromise you had to make between onscreen visuals and Shane Johnson’s and Andrew Probert’s blueprint versions of this area. I know you’ve done a ton of work and probably don’t won’t to redo anything, but I may have a (hopefully) helpful suggestion.

Are you familiar with Shane Johnson's revised blueprints he was working on a few years back? Although I unfortunately do not have any samples to show, I remember seeing some on the BBS a ways back (perhaps someone reading this can oblige?). I seem to recall that in this new version, he had essentially turned the O/L around so that the "view screens" backed up against the turbo shafts, leaving the opposite wall more or less open as in Probert’s original concept.

This, IMHO, seemed to be a clever stroke of genius; as this neatly ties everything together? Since we cannot tell from what we saw onscreen which way the O/L is oriented within the ship, either way is “Cann” and the O/L fits within the available space limitations much better. Also we saw very little of the (mostly) invisible fourth wall of the O/L set in ST: TMP anyway, and what was visible (as in your superbly accurate rendition) was what appeared to be a series of smoky translucent panels suggesting the possibility that they might, in-universe, be fold-away or slide-away “privacy partitions” which can either remain closed when necessary or opened up to allow the full view of the lower lounge area with the windows overlooking the aft of the ship?

This all makes much more sense, to me at least, as I never (from an in-universe point of view) understood the logic of having view screens blocking such a spectacular view directly into space, as with the traditionaly assumed orientation of the officers lounge.

Anywho, just food for thought, do what you will with it, use it or ignore it, it’s all good.

Very nice suggestion! Unfortunately, at the moment I do not wish to go through the required painstaking process of making those changes, but if I ever decide to revisit the area, I most certainly will see how it turns out.

It took me a minute to mentally visualize the concept you described, but it does sound like it would work. I especially like the idea of the privacy partition.

Thanks for the suggestion, TIN_MAN!

Btw, it looks like I've yet again switched Enterprises and started a TOS Enterprise build with the Unreal3 engine. Will be posting a thread soon. I wish I didn't like to have multiple projects going on at once and would just focus on one, but it keeps me from getting bored.

I'm outrageously curious. I liked your first TOS 3D graphics very much but with this Unreal3 engine tool they'll probably be even more realistic.

Hey, just glad to help in any small way. And like everyone else, I'm looking forward to your new TOS build.

Re: Refit Enterprise Interiors (WIP) - Unreal 3 Engine

This is amazing work! I'm very very impressed! If there were any way just to walk through the ship, visit the bridge, the lounge, engineering, sickbay, and maybe even crew quarters, and just walk around, that would be amazing! That's all I've ever wanted to do is just be able to walk around the entire Enterprise, and this is the best I've seen towards that.
