Re: 2019 Holiday Challenge - Comments

If I get an idea for something easy to do I'll enter. So far when I try to think of a moon base my mind goes to the movie Iron Sky with nazis from the moon and their space zeppelins. Think Santa, think Santa ....

Re: Christmas Card 2019

Thanks Draise. This won't be done before Christmas. I'd rather deliver it by then but I'll try to finish by the end of January. I've added several set dressing pieces and some furniture. Next are few lamps, some pictures on the walls, Christmas decorations, and presents. I need to arrange the furnit...

Re: 2019 Holiday Challenge - Comments

Good challenge theme! Another option is to have it go until the the middle of January or later. That allows for more extensive moon bases or scenes. The current deadline is good too since it is like the old speed modeling challenge. Setting an achievable goal and working efficiently become part of it.

Re: Christmas Card 2019

Collecting free models for furniture and set dressing. Still working on textures but they are ok. Made a fireplace plus free log and container models. Fire simulation takes a while to render so I might not have fire in the finished animation. Will have more dramatic lighting. Dark scenes were noisy ...

Re: Christmas Card 2019

I made the main room octagonal and added a dining room to the side. I'll add a closed door based on a bookshelf arch. If there is time there can be a fireplace. The textures could use some fine tuning but too much else to do. Next is furniture, toy train, and decorations. The tree has 300 particle i...

Re: Christmas Card 2019

Thanks Draise! @Bitkar Maybe something is wrong with the scene file. It loaded one scene but with the main library scene it complained about missing textures (same for the loadable one) then crashed when I clicked OK or whatever on the last texture complaint screen. Bryce could load it but it triang...

Re: Christmas Card 2019

Thanks Mikom. I never found a design that let the original building to "flow" to create a harmonious whole. That last one was promising though. I'll post the story after some improvements. Thanks Dragneye for suggesting heavenly glows. Among other things the train will carry an angel decoration. Whe...

Re: Christmas Card 2019

Successes and mistakes. Images follow in the next post. In 2000 I started a project in trueSpace to create a library building. I was never satisfied with the architecture so I didn't finish it. Although that building is a bit grand for a home, I decided to use its style and elements from it for the ...
