When I come to starting the bridge I will sketch it out first, but in the mean time I put some prop turrets on to see how an uber dreadnaught hybrid would look! Also started to colour code the surfaces for texture later.
When I got started with 3d modeling on my A1200 and real 3d, I tried to do a basic layout of a Star Trek ship to do some animations. I ended up with just a corridor section and a couple of rooms that took forever just to model the layout. So I stopped there and started animating, then left the good old A1200 for a month or so to render the scene! ~~~ Got about 5 people walking from room to room with doors opening and closing. Looked good but very basic, decided not to attempt it again as it stopped me from playing my fave game from the time: good old WC1.
