Freaking out about Sci-fi & Moives

Akira Class, Part 19. More Catamarans Windows, Hanger doors & odd’s and Ends.

Finally finsiehd of all the windows on the cat, not has many to do so I managed to get in done in a day.
I have also added a sensor suit to the top on the saucer just in front of the bridge. By the looks form the concept art and plans, looks like the area is a door, but given that the main hanger is just a few decks below this. I have decied to go with a sensor.

I also added the hanger door. For the forward one. I was thinking they where holographic. As there is already a forcefeild in place, it would be hard to have holo emitter there as well. This would save having to open the door when in battle. Ships can still fly out but nothing can get in. so if the area was was hit a attack. You would just have to refesh the area that was damage and you would have a new door good to go. (the emiter would be in the ship so they would be less likely to be damaged.

Anyway on to the pic.

Cat inner windows.


Hanger Doors

I have also done some lighting test, though I am not fully happy with this, so it needs a bit more work.

It was also mentioned that the RCS where too chuncky, so I have rebuilt these.

Finally here are two render of the full ship. One is a clat render.

  1. You’ve been busy. 🙂 Nice work on everything, bro. That’s an interesting idea, having the front hanger doors be holographic. It would only suck (or perhaps blow) if the holo emitters went offline, but I guess that’s what the forcefields are for.

  2. Thanks.

    Yeah you would have the standard forcefields, but also the emitters. They would also have there own power generators so if the ship lost power, they would still operate. just like the containment feild for the antimater tanks.

    as the hanger gose right the way though the ship. you could also have emergancy bulkheads that could drop or slid into place if the forcefeilds and holoemitter ever went off line.

    Hello, “freak89”.
    I am called “Gisteron” and am developing a modification archive for the space sim game “Freelancer”, from Microsoft.
    One of my main concepts was the introduction of a couple of ships based on famous series designs. Those shall have a special power and a special beauty. First their beauty was given by maps, now by detail of the meshes themselves. and one of these ships initially has the shape of the Akira class starship from Star Trek.
    I had to rebuild the shape using different meshes due to that I couldn’t find a proper model of it. The reason I write here is, that I wanted to ask, whether I could use your pretty good model of the spaceship for the game. I would at least mention you in the credits.
    I’d appreciate, if you contact me, please for this topic.
