@Ben_Lind - I purposefully wanted to keep this thing as low-poly as I could, my machine doesn’t like shuffling around a ton of ploys. As a result, it’s not exactly accurate. My goal was to have it fool the eye, and even allow for some closer inspection without problems.
@krokodyl1220 - before I turned down the sub-surf, the strings put me up around 850,000 verts. I just couldn’t handle that though. As is, they are normal mapped cylinders. I think they turned out pretty good. As to the reflectivity, I think you’re probably right. After a lot of usage, things tend to get some grime. I was even thinking about adding a little wear and tear to the body.
@Atom - Yeah, I realized after that latest render that I forgot the jack facepalm. I suppose I’ll add the logo as a decal. Still a little to be done!
Classwork has prevented me from working on this much - I was completely occupied with a UDK level for my Level Design 1 class. Hopefully I’ll have some time over the coming week to finish this thing up.
Let me know if you guys want to see any wires or anything.
Edit: Almost forgot -
