View Full Version : Interior Sets

March 4th, 2011, 07:18 AM
I thought I would ask this now.

we need to have some internal set built.

I can build them but can someone please look at the series (good part) and if possible create a plan drawing of it, with possible images that you consider useful for detail.

I need these for the project.

we donīt need the hanger or launch decks or bays
nor do we need the bridge

places like the life station, pilots quarters etc is needed or whatever you can think off. we can work in stages

its quite possible that the Techmanual will come out in stages or volumes. so that none of use lose steam and wish to see the rewards of the work.

when all can be done is do we can create a revise edition.

I have noticed that most of those sets all use the same vaccuform panels on the walls, just arranged in different configurations. The most obvious one to me being the one that is used repeatedly along the sides of launch platform. that shape can be found in almost every room, including the bridge and Tribunal chamber (court room).

There are several different ones, and they occasionally have variations of the main type. With a small library of panels you can build the majority of the walls and such of any room or corridor.

Right now I only have worked on one of these vaccuform panels.
The hardest thing about the galactica interior parts is the heavy use of rivets. If you model nice rivets your polycount goes through the roof. I was using this model to learn some "normal mapping" techniques. I achieved some promising early results.
It takes a lot of extra time to set up the model this way, but if you use it a lot it could reduce render times quite a bit.

nice work ,,,,,,

so perhaps someone can design some floor plan of some rooms and we can experiment on it.

simple 3d sample to get the idea flowing .

I would do it .. but it will cut in to my modelling time .

I forgot that one.....

some of the sections would not be in the fan film I am writing but they could be in future project by other member

Quite a few pieces can be re-used or slightly modified for use elsewhere. For example the book shelves behind Adama's desk can be made from the wall of diagonal support columns that separate the launching bays.

As I build stuff I'll try to export some parts that are likely to be re-usable elsewhere and make them available.

great idea ...

March 5th, 2011, 08:01 PM
Were there any plans to get a Basestar bay modeled?
I am talking about the one that was pictured in Starlog magazine years ago.
Lit properly it would make for beautiful visuals.

March 6th, 2011, 01:50 AM
Do you have a pic?

March 6th, 2011, 01:50 AM
Yes I hope to include one this.. this is the only image I can find

March 6th, 2011, 02:36 AM
Nicer version of that shot than the one I had.

March 6th, 2011, 03:16 AM
I looking every where I can to find the best .....luckily most of the best and most informed is right here

March 6th, 2011, 09:47 AM
Yup that be her!

March 6th, 2011, 09:55 AM
it will be done then ......

As I was thinking that the Colonial Fleet manual can be tackled first as we already have most of the material needed already or in advanced build up.

Cylons manual can come next, it has less to fill as far as I can see

the final manual will be the system

planets and such .... we will all have to think about that.

there is even a possibility that when all is done we can revise things later and reissue it to the community ...

I'll dig out my old Starlog magazine and get you guys a better scan.

March 6th, 2011, 11:37 AM
great ....

There are some grabs of the Rejuvenation Centre here:

thatīs great . I like this set and it has both Boomerīs and Boxys stunts

Lifestation/medical facility:


March 7th, 2011, 11:57 AM
I will start some work on these soon . thanks this make things a lot easier

March 7th, 2011, 12:28 PM
I have bitmaps of the face plates for those oscilloscopes in the background. I'll make those available. I gathered a decent library of them last week, and you should be able to match up the same types used in each scene if you want to go that detailed.

March 7th, 2011, 12:36 PM
cool news every thing helps :)

The Lifestation layout seems not to be set in stone, these are from a cut scene from LPOTG:


March 7th, 2011, 01:32 PM
good point ..... I will create the basic layout and then we can decide how to move forward ...

thanks...... Punishers pre-made models should speed this up mightily :)

thanks for all this research. it save our time for modelling. and I know its a lot of time going into this.....


March 10th, 2011, 05:47 AM
I will try to download these images later today .... to design the basic shape ......

its also possible that there are a number of these life stations around the Galactica ..... and broken into compartments etc.

March 10th, 2011, 07:35 AM
The Life station is likely to be a groups of several large rooms like the one in the link as well as operating rooms, exam rooms, recovery rooms and labs. Like a small hospital. It should have several large group rooms like the one in the link to accommodate large numbers of wounded personnel.

March 10th, 2011, 07:37 AM
Yes I am thinking along the same lines

peter noble
March 10th, 2011, 12:31 PM
I think you see a recovery room (small part of it) in G80, the room that Cassiopeia performs the test to see if Starbuck and Chameleon are related, and the room Serina dies in must be near by.

March 10th, 2011, 02:47 PM
I will do a set of rough plans before I comment to follow through. thanks for the feed back on that

Who's modeling the bathrooms?

March 12th, 2011, 10:29 AM
You don't know how to use the 3 shells?
Sorry wrong movie......

Darrell Lawrence
March 12th, 2011, 10:58 AM
Guess I'll use the window.

March 12th, 2011, 10:59 AM
Watch out for that vacuum :)

Darrell Lawrence
March 12th, 2011, 11:25 AM
Be no diff than a vacuu-toilet, no? :LOL:

March 12th, 2011, 12:13 PM
Zero shut off valve......:eek:

March 12th, 2011, 12:54 PM
lol .. I will do as much as I can .... but I will focus on key locations....
and do some floor plans.
The life station and such will not be in the fanfilm anyway ...

Darrell Lawrence
March 12th, 2011, 02:57 PM
A bathroom IS a key location, unless you want the crap to fly! :LOL:

Finally, a few grabs from the cut scene from the pilot. This appears to be the interior of the room that Cassie comes out of after her arm has been fixed.


March 13th, 2011, 04:34 PM
thanks ,, you have added much to the project taking the time to get these images peter.

March 14th, 2011, 06:27 AM
got all the images ....

I will going looking today for the Council Chamber and the Warriors quarters .
