Quote of today:
"If TODAY is all we see,- Zero 7
then TOMORROW seems to me
is just an ILLUSION we believe."
A delight to be listening to this English pop band (see http://www.zero7.co.uk/) for their album 'The Garden'.
Speaking of gardens, today I have been designing the SPARES ROOM of our Space station. Below you see a quick sketch of what it will look like in the game.

And to model it in our 3D environment I created a 'pattern' much like chicken wire... the ones you find in your garden ;o)

For instructions on how to do this, see this tutorial.
Which I then gave a little edge by adding shadows on it (hardly noticable, I know).

Next is for me to model this room in our Space station SPACEPORT, where it is used to store spare parts... and food, hopefully.
Because I have become very hungry after yet another long day in our Game room.
Here you will see the Spares Room I modelled in our 3D program (called Maya):

And after import into our Game engine (called Ogre), this is the result:

No worries, this is going to look much nicer still when we have painted the interior ;o)
