Exploring 2

I decided the ship was too dark. So, I went in and changed some material settings. I made the hull a lighter color, though I also increased the reflectivity of it and tweaked a few other settings. Then I increased the light strength and re-rendered the ship. I think this looks a lot better.

  1. Hi EG, I like this, it reminds me of a cross between Star Trek and Gerry Anderson’s Supercar! The planet looks great by the way – much better than the globe creator ones I make in GIMP!
    You might have seen I am having issues with my new laptop but I aim to soldier on with another that I have been able to “borrow” for a while. Might not be able to create anything as nice as this but I’ll do my best! Keep safe and well while you explore the galaxy!

    • Thanks For. Yeah, the ship came out of my mind, but it was inspired by old Sci-Fi novel covers. Originally, I was going to do a retro styled rocket, ala Flash Gordon, etc. but I decided not to go that route. I’ve never seen Gerry Anderson’s Supercar. The only Gerry Anderson stuff I’ve seen is UFO, Space: 1999 and Space Precinct. My favorite of those is UFO.

      That sucks about the laptop. Hardware issues are the worst thing to deal with doing this kind of stuff.

      • Hi EG, yes Supercar is very old (like me!) so you may not be aware of it! If you’re as old as me you get to see a lot of things and make a lot of mistakes. A bit like my laptop situation. I wouldn’t have done what I did if I hadn’t feared my laptop would damage it’s hard drive, it was running so hard and fast it was vibrating so I uninstalled the update and BANG that was it!. Anyhoo I have a slightly lower spec machine I can fall back on and I hope the store I bought the machine from can restore it for me under warranty as/when the situation allows. Thanks for the support and posting something nice for me to look at!
