This is something I’m hoping to finish before the 2.66 splash screen contest is over. I’d say I’m about 60% done with the mechanical parts. After that it’s the wires and finally - the FX.
I am looking forward to seeing what the final product will look like. This looks very promising so far. Are you basing the design off of a real reactor or are you letting your creative juices flow?
It’s all fictional. I don’t think I have enough time to model a real reactor; though that sounds pretty cool. Maybe next time.
I’m gonna have to stop with the mechanical parts and begin the rest. I wish I could detail it a bit more but I have to move onto something else.
Nice detail in the model. I look forward to seeing how it looks with textures.
I really don’t have the time to unwrap and texture it. I was thinking I could use sort of a car paint shader with subtle matte flakes covered by a clear glossy coating; you know, to give it that textured look.
