    The only non-procedural texture that I didn't include in the model is the bump map for the arc shaped cracks. Everything else is just blender mats with procedurals. I know, materials are NOT my strong suit. I do have an event horizon that I'm quite pleased with, but it is a separate file.

    [Edit] Yay, I got my star back! (For the moment...)

    If there's one concept I've learned making this model, it's that it is better to learn by giving yourself a project you cannot accomplish and learning the skills as you need them than to try to learn all of the skills beforehand and then try to apply them to a project. Also, make the project something you love and/or are passionate about, otherwise you won't have the patience to stick with it.

    Gah...for some reason the codec I used the other day to render the animation went bad cuz the animation was all weird and too short. Well whatever it's rendering at the moment, it should work this time.

    Oh and is there a way to render an animation in wireframe? that would look exactly like what you see when pressing Shift+Alt+A (when the 3d screen is set to wireframe)

    Wow! It's in the gallery! Now all you need is a good-looking kawoosh to live up to the detail of this model!

    Very impressive! makes me feel bad for not finishing mine! Congratulations on making it to the Gallery! Perhaps, if you texture it, you can get it to be a banner on Blenderartists, or get featured on Blendernation!

    Congrats lord of the rings junkie

    I'm glad for you man... I think this is the new benchmark for detail...
    And hence, for processor speed. Well done. I'm amazed that you stuck by this thing for sooooo long. Good job.

    The only thing that was really tricky to model was the design on the back, everything else was relatively simple, just very time consuming and tedious. Hopefully I can improve some of my organic modeling skills now, those aren't so hot. :P I should write an e-mail to thank the person who made a LW model I downloaded, it was invaluable for generating references when web photos fell short.

    I also need to correct an earlier statement, my GFX card is a 7300 GT, not 7600 GT. Goes to show how processor dependent Blender's 3d view is...

    Wow, its been awhile from when you first started this project, the completed model is incredible you did an awesome job!!! And thanks for the model too!
    Also, I would like to confess that I used one of your earlier ambient occlusion renders of the gate, back a few month ago I think, as a terrain displacement map in Bryce6.1 to render a stargate under water. Here is the link to the last version: http://www.bryce5.com/details.php?im...28&mode=search

    Sweet image! Inspired by this episode, I imagine?

    @darkscar888: Anybody can use and edit the model however they please, provided the use doesn't infringe MGM copyright. In other words, if you would make money off of it, don't use it. I hereby cover my butt legally in saying that any legal trouble anybody gets into as a result of selling a product using this model is their own fault.
