With my Xeelee Nightfightercomplete, I now have enough components to begin assembling an epic scene from from one of Stephen Baxter’s many, many novels. 20,000 years in the future, humans are engaged in a millenial struggle agains the Xeelee near the center of the galaxy. Humans use asteroids as weapons platforms. Soldiers on the asteroids dig trenches to hide in, rushing out to man weapon emplacements when the asteroids are hurled toward the Xeelee. Asteroids are accompanied by Spline battleshipswith Greenshipfighter escorts.
Soo… here’s the environment so far. I’m doing this as a Quicktime VR; I think this is the only way I’ll be able to properly depict the scene (you may want to download this here to view it fullscreen). For some reason there are ugly seams, maybe a camera lens setting of 16 is not quite correct ?
Comments welcome, everything subject to change at this point… I have some more asteroid models ready, I just haven’t bothered to put them in yet.
