    I'm just using bevels and solid colours tbh. There's no advanced texturing or materials going on.

    Straight corridor sections are 24,580 tris, 3-way junction is 14,882, 4-way junction is 5,088. But there's only one model of each of them. Every other use of those models are instances so I don't think they count towards the total.

    Same with the Jefferies tubes. An actual tube is 31,524, but there's just one. Bio beds are only 2,500, The two L-shape quarters are about 10,439 each but then repeated. The most detailed small object is probably the office chair, there's 4,048 in that.

    That's a great use of your memory with instances. Thanks for sharing those stats :techman:

    Hellooooooo again. Another month gone. Built an actual garden wall. Fiddled with trek-nessing Endless Sky. It was fun. Needed the distraction and a fresh perspective.

    So, re-built the doors because they were just solid red. And it was a tough call between voy-style and ent-e-style. But it came down to I just don't like the gold on the ent-e doors.

    Also been doing the windows for deck 4 to 6, which are all quarters. It was becoming too uniform and looked like there were too many windows, so I build two surface panels for each deck, one blank and one with a window, and instance them around the centre point.

    Wasn't too pleased with how the transporter room was laid out first time, so I rebuilt it focussing on the symmetry, and especially the structure of the ceiling (I'm a big fan of those TNG/VOY deep lighting hole-things, and I've put some plasma tubey things in the floor. Not sold on them yet, but we'll see how it goes.

    I did try it in green, which I do like but I just don't quite think it fits.

    I always wondered what was off to the side of a transporter room. A room full of computer banks? The loo? So...I've done both.

    Think I need a computer terminal on the end of those racks, and a desk in there somewhere.

    *the man was borrowed from here.

    And it's going to cover three decks, so they'll be lab/engineering rooms to work on the equipment above and below.

    A few shots of the supporting structure around the transporter platform. I want to show the technology behind it so I'll be adding top, bottom and side "tech", as well as the ability to access it via walkways and ladders etc.

    I always assumed that beside the transporter rooms were equipment stores for tricorders, EVA suits, phasers, etc, all the stuff that an away team might need.

    This is truly astounding work.
