Hello everyone, for the last few days I've been working on a Nem style yard for the Federation, and as of right now I have the mesh completed. What do you all think?;

Poly count: 4008

I do intend to release it for public usage once done since the only one I have seen released has a No Public Usage policy attached to it.

I apologize for my mistake, but this is still going to be released...one can never have to many yards. And I would also be thankful for any advice or criticisms on it.

Here's what it looks like textured, what do you all think?

Poly count is a little on the high side, but it looks good :) - its missing the command bay on the top and the space arm though :S just a crit, aside from that it looks cool :) Well Done

Very nice
I agree with you about never having too many yards :)

Thanks everyone, yeah I noticed that after I started to do the textures...oh well, I might do another one another time, but for now this one might not be like the one in the movie, but it still has the same basic style (and might be a decent change from all of the TMP and early TNG yards out there o.o)

I did do a few things to knock the poly count down to around 3800, it's still high but hopefully no one will try to flood the map with them :)

Cabal; Right now it was made for A2 since it's the only thing I have on this PC, but there will be one with it for A1 when it's released. Which should be soon, all I need to do is put the rest of the hardpoints on it and do the buttons.

The poly eaters are in the nets holding the lights in the center of each arm

8 polies each beam (12 polies if u havent deleted the ends) multiplied by 4 for one complete section then multiply that by 3 to get one arms worth, then multiply that by 8 arms,

That is 1152 polies

My advice would be to do what I did and use an alpha map of the beams. That way u can have 4 polies for each arm, that works out at 32 polies.


Just a bit of advice if u were hoping to get the poly count lower
