Closer Inspection

Greeble growth persists

space_office_transp_rm_019A few more minor details added upon closer inspection.

Continuing to add details at a snail’s pace. It seems mold grows faster than greebles on my current schedule. Seriously, I could probably do this faster in a Petri dish. Continue reading ‘Closer Inspection’

A Tad More Detail

Greeble Sprinkles

space_office_transp_rm_018bNearly viable docking ports.

Got some more details in place. I’ve put in more lighting boxes and equipment detailing, such as the recessed EVA hand grips and emergency rescue levers. Continue reading ‘A Tad More Detail’

Texture Testing

A minor test before greebling kicks into high gear (or putters out)

space_office_transp_rm_017dDocking ring not quite ready for travel pod.

I decided to test some UV bump maps on those large greeble panels, visible most prominently in the office module’s closeups from The Motion Picture. Upon inspection, they appear to be little more than flattened panels of plastic grating, formed as a uniform lattice of square grids. Continue reading ‘Texture Testing’

Rings Demand Details

Adding some greebles and features to the exterior hull and docking ports

space_office_transp_rm_017bLatest image. Greeble beginnings.

Decided to do some detail work on the exterior hull and outer docking ports this weekend. I began adding some elements from the previous Office Station model, and also began crafting a few fresh yet simple greebles from scratch. I modeled the red markings around the docking collar as well.

It was funny that I got the scene loaded last night right before heading to bed, and decided to do a quick render from this outside perspective. Continue reading ‘Rings Demand Details’

The Unseen Perspective?

Looking Towards Airlock 5…

space_office_transp_rm_012eSpace voyeurism… in reverse? Gazing back in that direction from which our cinema views first peeked into the orbital office world.

Finally got my first hint of what could be hiding just out of view in that office module from The Motion Picture.

With that much of the docking structure visible outside the viewport, I should probably also do a render (eventually) with my travel pod model there, docked in place.

While ripe with speculation about the unseen, I’d argue this is all based on some fairly basic principles evident in the film’s screen shots: Basic shape, size limitations, and overall symmetry. Continue reading ‘The Unseen Perspective?’

Six Fix

Amongst others

space_office_transp_rm_010abAirlock 6 label corrected, along with a few other touch ups.

Finally got all the “Starfleet Special” fonts moved from my old computer to my new one, and was able to create a new, albeit simple, version of the airlock label featuring number 6 rather than 5.

I played around with the deck textures after I saw how well the fuzzy blurred reflections looked on the metal casings of the large computer monitors. I was so impressed with the decking results, that I decided to employ similar settings on several other bulkhead and frame members to juice up the surfaces. Continue reading ‘Six Fix’
