I’ve recently been working on a a project at school to launch a Danish beer into the Asian market. I decided to do a little 3D work on the project to give a better visualisation of what we were doing, so I thought I’d post it here for people to take a look at
Me brainstorming ideas for a solution on how to proceed with the project.
For quite some time now (like several years) I’ve been following the design and construction of the new Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers. There will be 2 ships in this class, HMS Queen Elizabeth (due to enter service 2016) and HMS Prince of Wales (due to enter service 2018). They are going to be the largest warships the UK has ever built and will displace about 65,000 tonnes and are 280m long. The current plan is that the ship will be built in a STOVL setup for use with the F35-B.
Anyway, I degress, the point of this post is that I will be creating a medium polygon 3D model of the ship. My intention is that I will update this post as progress is made, so that the process of creating the model can be seen from start to finish. I’m estimating that the model may take a few months to make due to real life commitments and the fact that finding referance material to build the hull form that is accurate is incredably difficult! Right now I am using photos of the hull sections to create cross sections of the hull to help me create an accurate hull form.
Well, its been quite sometime since I made any posts here, mainly due to been extremely busy with my new studies, as well as having to deal with some personal issues. That said, the last few months have been rather productive. The Most major event been that SuricataFX is now a registered company available for handling outsourced graphics and project management/web design consultation.As such this site will be recieving a makeover in the coming month to better display relevant information (the blog will remain, but not be the prominant frontpage of the site!).
As some of you may or may not be aware, for a short time I worked at a company called Tactile Entertainment who specialize in making games for mobile devices. One of the games I spent most of my time working on was Chasing Yello. I worked on the game as a system and level designer. Basically I worked on the level progression, achievement system and the rate currency was earned.
I am extremely happy to see that the game has already hit over 4,000,000 downloads and is actually topping the charts in 10 countries! If you enjoy playing mobile games, I definatly recommend trying it out
Chasing Yello on the AppStore
So I’m having quite a busy summer as I prepare some site alterations ready for the launch of my new company, which will cover several mediums, such as 3d modeling, web design and consultation in project management and marketing. One of the new features of the site will be an area featuring my 3d models that you can purchase, this requires the implementation of a model viewer so that people can view the models before purchase.
You can see an example of the viewer below
Please let me know if you have any issues with the viewer so that I can fix them
As many of you are aware I’ve been maintaining some charts to assist players of the MMO Star Trek Online. A new season went live yesterday and with it, a few new systems were added to the game. as such I’ve updated the starcharts for the game.
As you can see, I’ve updated the style of the chart to more closely match the new style of the website and forums, I’ve also added a map of the galaxy to better show where in the galaxy the actual game maps are as well. Hope you enjoy it.
