a piece of pure art, i think the addition of a tail like contraption would add something to the ship, cannot wait for the colored version

Ask, and you shall receive!

Also she has a name now, I was thinking about explorers as Shawnster said, and I thought well why not name it for a "recently" deceased explorer?

Ladies and Gentlemen, and Tribbles...

I present to you

The U.S.S. Pike!

EDIT: How do I change the Thread title? She's gotta name now so U.S.S Something Something ain't going to cut it?

You might have to ask a mod, especially if the original post is too old to edit.

Gotcha, I'm thinking "The Fantastic Mr. U.S.S. Pike" or, " CJ's U.S.S Pike "

Re: My new side project! USS Something Something

absolutely fantastic, a magnificent ship in all its glory, not to sound cheeky but now we have ship lets possibly have some nice interior design, something unique for the bridge, engine room and a few new rooms i guess, also maybe a uniform would be good too...

Dude, stop reading my mind!

Well I am planning to do interiors, but that requires some research and some concept work, not to mention making a floor plan. Still gotta finish the exterior before I jump into the interior.


More wips, Got the Deflector dish 90% done, and I UV'ed the Secondary Hull.

Re: CJ1701's Current Project: U.S.S Pike

I got some more work done, all that's left for basic texturing is the nacelles, the [Shatner]"shuttle bay doors"[/Shatner], the Pylons and that thing that holds 'em together.

Once that's done I'll be putting The ship into either Mudbox or Z-brush and Sculpt the normal maps.

And I'll be designing a Bridge, a Shuttle Bay, a Shuttle, Crew chambers, and a Mess Hall.

Then take the Renders of the Interiors and use them as textures or composite into a Image to go for a film quality.

SO, here's the full to-do list:

  • Finish the Diffuse + Incandescence
  • Sculpt details
  • Tweak the Specularity/Reflections
  • Design the Bridge
  • Model the Bridge
  • Texture the Bridge
  • Design the Shuttle + Bay
  • Model the Shuttle
  • Texture the Shuttle
  • Model the Bay
  • Texture the Bay
  • Design Crew Chambers
  • Design Mess Hall
  • Model the Environments
  • Texture the Environments

Here's some WIP's


Well this will be a fun 3 months

Re: CJ1701's Current Project: U.S.S Pike

If this is supposed to be the contemporary to the Vengeance, it must be massive! It looks awesome too! Although I wonder what it would be like if it had a similar saucer section with the holes punched out.

Ooh, think you're brave enough to refit the Enterprise?

Only problem I may have is that there are a lot of impulse engines. I think only the main two may be needed.

your new mods to it looks great, cannot wait to see the complete ship, cannot wait to see the interior of the ship and the shuttle craft.
