    Yes. As Tallguy indicates, please see the first 30 (well, more like 40) pages of this thread. In fact, that's why the thread is called "Donny's TOS Enterprise Interiors."

    Argh. I'm just gonna rename the thread again. This time to "Donny's Kirk-Era Enterprise Interiors". Or something like that.

    You should add "No bloody A, B, C or D!" for extra clarification. :)

    None of the Enterprises in this thread have that suffix.

    Started on laying out some of the console panels tonight. Just this one was more work than I thought, because I had originally built the entire console too small and had to rebuild it from scratch before I started on the panels. This means I have to rebuild ALL the bridge consoles from scratch, unfortunately, since they were all based on the size of the same one :(

    Getting just the right colors and animating these things takes a while as well, but I'm liking how they're turning out so far. Here's the finished communications console.

    If you do that, you'll just get inquiries as to when you're going to render some JJ-prise interiors. :p

    Not that I would have noticed the console was the wrong length anyway, but this is awesome. All that's missing is a certain communications officer with her big silver earpiece.

    I don't have to tell you how tired I am this evening...

    Loving the way it's looking though. I know I'm just building up the anticipation when I say the animations are coming along nicely...

    The accordion-style buttons have a nice glow effect to them.

    Those accordion switches are gorgeous, I could almost reach out and touch them!

    Each new update is even more eye-poppingly incredible than the previous one. And let me add my voice to the chorus of love for your accordion buttons.

    Donny:

    Really LOVING your work on the interiors. I have a couple of questions ....

    Have you ever tried using UNREAL4 engine to model exteriors of the ship? Build your own Connie? I'm wondering what it would make the Enterprise look like. The interiors are damn near photo real, I'm curious what you could do with the ship itself...

    Re: Donny's TOS Enterprise Interiors

    I haven't tried yet, and I'm not sure if I really want to. There are so many great CG models of the Refit Connie out there, better than I could probably make, and I could simply use one of those and covert it for use in Unreal 4.

    We'll see.

    Yeah, best to focus upon a an area that others have not considered. That way, you establish the "benchmark".

    Sincerely,

    Re: Donny's TOS Enterprise Interiors

    Based on what has been shown here so far, "benchmark" and "gold standard" are synonymous. :)

    Just an FYI, while gathering more references on the weapon's console displays, found a clearer view of the location of the manual photon firing joystick cover today:

    Finished up the weapon's console tonight.

    I know things are a little dark, but you get the picture. Trying to maintain that TWOK feel.
