    Those transluscent skin shots are incredible, I honestly can't decide on a favourite! It looks like the nervous system of a giant (space) creature.

    Awesome stuff!

    I guess it now has to be asked...

    So...

    Where's the bowling alley?

    :D

    As this is based so closely on FJ's blueprints, I'd expect to find it on Deck 21, just under the shuttlecraft maintainence workshops

    Awesome! :techman:

    In all seriousness, though, this is amazing. Hope to see something like this fully interactive one day.

    Took a few days off and went to Kentucky. But, I've otherwise been working on deck 7.. trying to figure out what to do with it in terms of seperating the parts of it. It's been a very long process. I'm not done yet; but, here's where that stands:

    [​IMG]

    Decks 6 & 7 are the two largest in the ship; so, this may yet take a while; but, there isn't far left to go after this. The inner walls and outer skins once again have been seperated (huge headache where this deck is concerned esp.), the floor and ceiling sections have been seperated as well. The engineering section is being chopped free as this section has already been worked. The poly count for this deck increased. I expected that; but, I'm not done.

    More to come.

    I'm currently working on Deck 6. The work on 7 was quite a bit more tedious than I'd imagined; but, the outer and inner hull skins weren't spun up on the same number of segments; so, that made it more .. interesting. Nearly bald now. lol. Been taking breaks doing some C coding work to keep my sanity. Still moving.

    Slogging along...

    [​IMG]

    This shows the cutting down of deck 6 underway. The floor has been cut free, then seperated into the actual deck 6 floor and deck 7 ceiling. The outer skin wall has been removed and will be seperated into outer/inner skins. The walls are seperated out as well and the turbolifts are a seperate item still. All have been trimmed further as the process continues and the polycount
    thusly continues to fall even with the addition of new items into the mix. :)

    Deck 6 is at this point about 50 percent completed. The image doesn't show a lot, thus the reason I haven't been posting very much of late. The work right now as I've said before is just
    sheer tedium. There isn't a real change in any of the geometry other than getting rid of geometry that isn't needed. The structure remains largely unchanged.

    More to come. ;)

    ..almost forgot, this is an image I'd intended to post a while back and didn't get posted. Just some more eye candy ;)

    Cool, x-ray specs!

    This is an amazing project. Thanks for sharing.

    I can't tell you how spectacular this is to me.

    Actually, I possibly COULD tell you, but it would get very boring and repetitive after about five hours. :)

    Probably would be a tad more exciting than working deck 6 right at the moment; but,.. I take the point rofl. Thank you.

    I get dizzy just imaging doing something like this. Great stuff.
    Is there any way to get an estimation of the square footage for the ship? It must me staggering.
