The ultimate Sketchup ISD

Post by Grahf: Seeker Of Power »

I have been inspired by looking at Fractal's work to make the most detailed and moderately accurate Star Destroyer in Google Sketchup. This is my first WIP images:

That must be maxing out sketchup. Very cool though.
They say, "the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots." I suppose it never occurred to them that they are the tyrants, not the patriots. Those weapons are not being used to fight some kind of tyranny; they are bringing them to an event where people are getting together to talk. -Mike Wong

But as far as board culture in general, I do think that young male overaggression is a contributing factor to the general atmosphere of hostility. It's not SOS and the Mess throwing hand grenades all over the forum- Red

As long as I keep my poly count reasonable it is actually not too bad. I need to upgrade my ram though. I am still working on it. The greebling is making my brain hurt.

Great start. Watch that rear tower neck angle.

Does sketchup have layers or proxy/xrefs? That can really help with file performance and management.

I have my greebles, weapons, and engines on seperate layers which I can turn on or off. That seems to be helping with resources.

Do you want detail feedback on the proportions and details?
