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

Really goes without saying, but exceptional renders and work as ever.

Is the main viewer really that small?

The set is looking good havoc92. I'm assuming that the command platform is still work-in-progress? In the reference pics I have it has black sides and carpeted top, so the reflections from it in completed form should be minimal. I think from looking at various pics of the bridge, the colored perimeter lights make little contribution in the majority of scenes and that a circular set of white ceiling lights is what does the primary lighting. Anyway, keep up the good work!
Yeah, figured I'd get the heavy detail stuff out of the way first so that the minor stuff is what I finish with. Had to mod the platform a bit for size before dealing with carpet, which will be a seperate mesh. So, there's a method.

The lighting is gonna be a tad bright for a bit while I troubleshoot problem spots where the light leaks through, etc. Then they'll be tamed even more. Probably end up dropping overall level by another 10-20 percent.

I've got shots of the upper dome area though and if there's an overhead light fixture, it isn't in the original footage. So, have to take a liberty there and build one that fits with what I can see. Was pretty certain there was one; just a matter of determining size and vertical ceiling for it. Already have spots in place; so, just a matter of building the fixture.

Thank you and yes, the main Viewscreen is actually pretty big; just looks a tad small from that angle. But it is to spec

I actually kinda like the trippy light set up.

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



Here's what's goin on.. After digging through a lot of source material, I decided to use ref images from the trek auction and just go with it. This shows the upper back of the leather portion of the chair in progress. The lower portion is next, then the front of the leather seat area will follow. Hating organics at the moment; but, warming up to them.

Whoa Organics isn't too bad, you can get away with alot of low-poly stuff and make up for it with shading selection. Nice to see you back at it!

After lots of playing about, I'm starting to like what I'm seeing a little more. Still not entirely pleased; but,
the bloody thing is progressing. Probably more updates later today yet. We'll see.

The basic geometry is cake. It's the bit where you need to make part of it look like soft, stretched leather that becomes a pain in the aft side.

Still have a lot of work to do on the buttons and lights; but, moving along nicely now.
