    Nice find! Thanks, Terror Grin!

    Here's my reference sheet (minus the one Terror Grin just found) for anyone interested, comprised of the best images I could find. Some were adjusted for brightness and contrast so the details are more visible.

    I'm not sure if you checked out The Battle for reference shots, but there's a nice low shot of the base of the chair here, and a closeup of the metal strip on the blue TVH chair here. Another nice one here showing that the left-hand control panel survived, even if it didn't look too exciting. Certainly no lights.

    If you ever do a Star Trek IV paint job, The Battle is arguably better for reference material than the snippet we saw in the film! Though obviously it was repainted to serve as the Battle Bridge in between.

    I never thought about that! I'll remember that if I ever do a TVH version...

    Anyway, whipped up the controls. You can't tell from the screenshot, but like the rest of the bridge controls, they cycle through a blink pattern. I'll try and get a video uploaded after the bridge is completely done so everyone can see the animations...

    Looks very good, given the scanty reference material.

    Hey, with all of this research into more accurate button layouts for the consoles and chair etc, you could easily make a revised Bridge Manual.

    As promised, here is a short video so you can see everything in motion, particularly the animated consoles and viewing screens. I've still got more viewing screens to create, but I wanted to take some time to go ahead and show you guys what's up. Enjoy!

    Got some of the more complicated viewing screens completed tonight. All are based on actual view screens seen around the bridge in The Wrath of Khan.

    Fantastic! Love the sound effects too, it totally sells it.

    Com-pic for you on the hyperchannel...

    Thanks. The sound effect is unfortunately more correct for use on The Reliant instead of The Enterprise, but it will have to do. It's the only clean sound effect file I could find that is period-correct.

    Oh, how I wish "comm-pic" would've been used further than this one movie...

    [EDIT] As a side note, most of these animations (all except for the second viewing screen in the video above) are implemented by having actual live particle effects or other graphics elsewhere in the map file, with a camera object positioned near them. The camera object feeds a live view to these viewing screens.

    ^That's really cool. Sometime when I have a computer that isn't as old as the hills, I'd be interested in taking a crack at learning how to do this sort of thing.

    So what game would one need for to run this when you release it?

    Re: Donny's TOS Enterprise Interiors

    None. It's not a mod. It'll be a standalone program. A hefty one at that, as it will have to contain the core Unreal 4 engine files. Also, a beefy computer will be needed, as Unreal 4 is a next-gen engine. Or is it now current gen? ;)

    What Paramount's licence says about fan made games?
