    Quick update: The modelling has been pretty much finalized, and I've uvw unwrapped most of it. I'm starting to create bump maps to outline where the hull panel diffuse maps will go. I've also downloaded a program called CrazyBump which creates Normal maps from a standard bump map, something I haven't tried on the previous ships I've made.

    I like this design very much, and this is coming from someone who overall dislikes the Danube-Class. This has far better proportions. :D

    Thanks Santaman. If you're getting blingy space limousine vibes from it then the design is doing its job. :)
    Thanks. I'm glad the Danube class DNA is still coming through. I personally quite like the Danube as I have a soft spot for utilitarian looking things, but keeping all of the Danube's blocky proportions wouldn't really work for this ship.

    Edit: I've also been continuing to play around with procedural displacement and getting to grips with Corona's volume material, which I'm sure will have lots of uses when I create some environments for this ships. Right now I'm concentrating on experimenting with ground textures and surface fog:

    So I assume it has a well stocked mini bar and possibly stripper poles... :biggrin::p

    Minibar? Sure! I definitely draw the line at stripper poles though; how unbecoming! These Federation politicians are a very respectable sort, don't you know!? :lol:

    I'd like to see that as well--good for PICARD era ships.

    Cynical? What would you expect when you have Romulan and Vulcan intelligence officers working together, covertly, to undermine the Federation?

    I've been rethinking the texturing, going for more of a two-tone look rather than the standard starfleet grey:
