Some more work on the back of the bridge, plus the bridge has been reshaped now.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
It's strange, but I get a sense of scale from those shots that's far greater than any FS model has given me.  When I look at those engines, I think to myself, "Holy crap...those are huge."  No idea why, but it's an awesome feeling. :)

Looks great! It's always nice to see modders pushing the engine's features to new heights.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Brand, any idea what kind of FOV is in that render?  Trying to match that with the engine might maintain the same feel.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Wouldn't be too hard to hue/saturation the texture for that.
Lets wait for it to be finished first :P

Don't you think that'd be sort of an errant venture?

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
Hehe

Anyways chief, I can't really give the FOV for ya at the moment as the model itself isn't scaled properly, I'm working at 1/10 scale to keep the numbers down a bit for calculations.  Once it's finished I can scale it up to proper size and then we can work that out

If you scale up the camera distance as well, then the field of view requires no changes. :nervous:

Oh yeah... well if that's the case Mr. Smarty Pants, why don't you figure it out then?  =P

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
There we go, bridge shape totally fixed and some re-angling of the front panels, plus a couple extra greebles:

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
It's the power of the greebles. The camera has nothing to do with its sense of scale. By having all those small elements on the surface of the ship, our mind interprets the object as being very large. That's why small ships rarely have greebles. Mind you, they usually have larger windows which also acts as a scale cue.

If you want things to seem big because of the FOV, keep the FOV fairly big.

Re: Imperial II-class Star Destroyer Reborn
It's nice an all but I seems like part of the superstructure is missing.  My memory is foggy but if I recall correctly there was something vaguely hamburger shaped as part of the bridge tower.  I tried to rough sketch it in paint...
