She looks nice close up, I'll render a shot but it might take a short while, the model's getting kinda intensive on the renderer Smile

The model is only 1.8MB and I don't model in poly's, I model in splines/patches and the patch count is 4583

Patches aren't quite like poly's. See with Poly's, to define a smoother shape, you have to increase the density of the mesh. With splines however, it's like using vector controls, you define the cruve by editing the handles of the spline so the fewer patches/splines you have, the better quality model you have. Now obviously, some models have more patches than others. The Daedalus is currently cruising around 10,000 patches I think and a fellow by the name of Stian just recently completed his model of the Nidaros Cathedral and that model has nearly 1 000 000 patches (which is now like the record for largest density model made in AM I do believe)

there's this guy called Fracetlsponge1 or somethink, he made an ISD with 1.7 mill poly's and a custom SW themed cruiser that had about 4.8 million polyies.

Part of it's the angle of the mesh and that the decals get a bit stretched to the mesh, plus some are actual circles and not ovals. But I wouldn't say they're that bulky

Yeah, they're not quite as thin as the sovvies and whatnot, I'll agree there. I'll do up a side profile more so we can all see the windows better than at that angle there

Yeah, that's something I thought about, but right now I'm more concerned with getting the model into a complete status. Changing up textures once applied is bit trickier (not like hard though) just tedious, so it's on the last of my concerns list Smile

I haven't made any up, I got a general idea of the power of the ship though and stuff like that, but I'll make some up for kicks soon

Vedic wrote:What kind of Texture are you going for, Shiny NX class or 24Th century Gray?

Probably more on the shiny side, but not too shiny

EDIT: Well, guess it's kinda a toss up, seems more grey ATM than shiny

Ah the infamous windows of Star trek, never judge a ships size by it's windows. Take DS9 for example, the station has 200 decks but only a few hundred windows.

Indeed, especially considering it poses no real relevance to anything, just to the egos of nerds who have nothing better to do with their time than to count windows

Yep, and that's simply cause they're not done yet! And by my calculation, I been on this model for about a month and a half now, so that's half decent considering I'm still plucking away at the Daedalus and it's been over year since I started that model
