View Full Version : Airship Construction

03-10-2004, 01:27 AM
Hey everyone. After my last robot project, I decided to try something likewise inorganic- an airship! I hope it turns out to be just as detailed (and mind bending to create). The robot turned out to be 50 mb file with...how many polys? (goes to check) 1815277. Almost two million polys! Whew!

Anyway, this is the first part, I've already done the flying ship assembly from a scrapped WWII transport ship. From there I've added the tanks of gas to keep it afloat. My first post for this is the stablizing fan assembly. The fans keep the ship properly oriented. I haven't put the cables in yet, but pistons will push it 'up' toward a 180 degree angle, while the cable will pull it 'up' to being a 90 degree angle. See my smartness? lol, that way no matter the crossbreeze Captain Nefastis of the Spicy Barnical will be able to handle it.


Anyhow, comments welcome, I'll be sure to update often!

Here's a shot of the ship assembly so far. I'm still thinking about what to do with stuff like crew's quarters. Any ideas? Maybe underneith? Maybe no crew at all...

Nice work, bit of an insane poly count, looking forward to seeing it finished !
