First I wanted to say to everyone who has faved or commented on my Star Trek and other sci-fi CG models, a very big THANK YOU. It means a lot to this very amateurish model maker.
A couple of folks have rightly pointed out that the lighting on my Enterprise refit might be a bit too bright, and they're correct. I toned down the lighting in those areas that I could, but unfortunately, some of the textures I applied already had some reflective light on them. I tried to PhotoShop that incumbent light out, but it wasn't easy, so some hull lighting may still appear just a wee bit too bright.
Right now, I am experimenting with a way to have lockable phasers/disruptors/torpedoes permanently attached to my ships, so that space battles are far easier to set up. I've done several beam weapon techniques in the past, but there just wasn't really any easy way to fully set them up. Hopefully that will change soon by making the weapons fire an actual part of the ship, to be commanded on or off, and where to target. We'll see how it turns out.
More Trek and sci-fi stuff is on the way folks. Thank you so much for your viewing, faving, and watching. I'll try not to let y'all down.
