Haven’t touched this project for a while, but I always wanted to keep working on it. Here’s an update of the shipyard scene I wanted to build.
There are multiple shipyards throughout the game, residing in planets that the player has conquered or in space. This is one of such shipyards concept in a conquered planet, where the player can buy upgrades and modify his/her ship. At this scene the player is supposed to be able to move the camera around freely to check out the ship.
Here are some screenshots of initial Sketchup modelling
And I just quickly threw the scene into Cryengine 3 to make sure everything works and see how the lighting worked out
