    Yep! I've yet again moved on to a bigger and better gaming engine. I abandoned the ancient Quake III engine and have gotten the hang of Unreal 3, which is one of the most commonly used engines in the industry. I trained myself in 3ds Max, which is what I use to build the 3D meshes.

    For those that may have seen my previous work, you may know I dabbled with the TOS Enterprise and the Enterprise-D. This time around I'm taking a shot at the Refit Enterprise. I've been going at this project for about 2 months now, but wanted to wait until I finished up enough to showcase some images.

    I'm drawing both from TMP and TWOK as far as detailing goes, mixing and matching various elements. I want to balance the clean feel of TMP with the functional militaristic feel of TWOK. Less hotel, less submarine, more starship.

    OH, and before I forget. Follow my new blog if you wish to keep up with progress: http://rigel7studios.blogspot.com/

    Anyway, here are some images. Enjoy! Comments and criticisms welcome. (Enterprise 3d Mesh seen in the "Officer's Lounge" images below was graciously provided by WileyCoyote)

    Thank you, wildstar and blssdwlf!

    Here's a video I took of a short walkthrough Engineering. It came out very dark (not sure why), but it'll show you the textures in motion.

    EDIT: Well, I don't seem to know how to embed youtube files. Anyone help me out?

    here's a link instead:

    You put [ yt ] and the [ /yt] around the YouTube address (minus the spaces), but it needs to be a full address (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLqU2lsILBA) and not one of those youtu.be ones.

    Oops...I think I just fainted.

    Outstanding, marvellous, impressive, breath taking, passionate, detailed and apparently 100% accurate. :techman::techman::techman::techman::techman:

    I think I'm in TMP heaven...wait until Andrew Probert sees this. ;)

    Fascinating video Donny :) Quick question - are those guard rails around the shaft modeled or are they a texture? They look sweet.

    Sweet! I love the accuracy you've put into these models, but the blinking lights and warp core "swirl" you put in the video put it way over the top! :techman:

    Absolutely gorgeous! Wish we could budget a physical set like that!

    They are modeled. In an older game engine I would have had to just use textures, but Unreal 3 is way friendlier with high poly counts.

    I'm curious:

    Will these be isolated sections and pieces or do you intend to bring these together (e.g. a walk through the original studio set)?

    You also mentioned some work you did on the TOS Enterprise.
    I'd love to see that, could you please provide a link? Thanx!

    Holy cannoli... That is massively impressive. Will this be available publicly when finished?
