Gliding On Air…


Delivering supplies to different areas of a ship can be a chore… so why not use this handy anti-grave pallet featured in The Motion Picture. 😀


This was pretty easy but I had put off building it for some time.  Decided I had good reason to throw one together now.  I actually like the texture of the anti-grav lifter but I have had a bit of trouble reducing the size of the bump pattern on the surface.  Reducing the scale in the bump map channel doesn’t seem to affect it at all, so I am a bit perplexed.  It is just a preset metal texture that I used from lightwave, but it reminds me of some of the metallic textures from set designs we’ve seen in other Trek producti0ns and sci-fi endeavors.

Here is one in context, but it was before I increased its color brightness, so it looks quite dark and unreflective in this shot.  Never finished any labels on those “boxes” sitting on it either, but I built them quite a while ago as part of some engineering props and greebles project.  I might get to some neat kind of label soon.
