Dacorum Space Exploration Vessel by eRe4s3r Dacorum Space Exploration Vessel by eRe4s3r
So finally its done, took long enough..

Not really sure i feel like a scene for this.. figured I might as well present the ship properly regardless

Made with Cinema 4D , contrast/brightness/sharpness tuning in photoshop
Too many polygons ;p

For some more description regarding the ship...
This Vessel is a pure space vessel. No landing on planets or some such nonsense. For that it has 6 shuttles with guns ;p

Bridge is in the core section (the middle of the whole thing) and has no solid connection in any way to the outside or ship hull - Bridge core floats in shock dampening gel and is spherical, supports full surface visualization for 360 view around the ship from inside the ship. Once sealed no crew can enter or exit the core until seal is broken. Core Gel can also harden in the event of a hit or boarding attempt. Bridge core can be used as escape pod.

For long range flight all crew enters stasis - important crew stasis pods are inside the bridge core assembly. For "unimportant" crew the stasis pods are in the gravitational torus

in dynamic flight mode ship uses 2 acceleration thrusters and 2 breaking thrusters for optimal maneuver performance.

2 Docking ports (left and right side, apr 12m in front of the breaking nozzle) require extension tunnel to connect with other ships and stations


Comments and Criticism welcome.

Very nice, there's a good blend of the chunky kind of design like B5 but the curves soften it up without looking out of place. Great work.

183x65x51 meters is, IMO, too small space to contain SIX! corvettes or shuttles.

Sorry: SIX! corvette/shuttle hybrids. How long these units are, anyway?

Cool design. -the shapes flow together excellently. I especially like where the elliptical section meets the hull.

I just love something about all your work. I think it's either the texture or shading just looks really nice and crisp.
