Returning Survey Mission by Arcas-Art Returning Survey Mission by Arcas-Art
I could write some kind of story here, but really it was just an excuse to roll out James Murphy's lab eagle (w/ booster) model. Thanks to archangel72367 for supplying the needed materials for final OBJ conversion (and thanks to Karanua for giving his best shot). Eagles by James Muprhy, background image by Moonschilde_Stock [link] .

The lab eagle was always my uber favorite pod variant, so you WILL see more of it ;)

Very neat! I imagine this is how the end of the first Season 2 episode "The Metamorph" might have looked had the Alphans been able to retrieve BOTH of their Eagles before the planet Psychon exploded. (Ooops... SPOILER ALER--oh nevermind, it's been out for over 30 years!)

 

Of course, the planet looks better than some of the 'inkblot' planets did in the actual series, but in all honesty, some of those 'inkblots' actually worked pretty well, or would have if they had been surveying gas giants during an episode or two. Anyway, regarding this particular piece, I like that the planet looks BARELY able to sustain a survey crew and/or mining expedition, but does not look inviting enough to actually consider evacuating Alpha.

Yeah, 1999's planets were... "colorful". But they all tended to look psychedelic watercolor paintings :lol:

One feels that a detailed cockpit interior would add so much to this.

Yeah... I think it's something that I could pull off easier now than when I did this piece. But definitely - a good call.

Those windows look like eyes. You are drawn to them.

Is there some sort of noise around the windows on the pod? I'm have problems with this model and bogus junk appearing on the module area. Sigh.

I think I had Archangel do the conversion for me, exporting an OBJ from Lightwave, as I recall. You could try batting your eyelashes at him? I probably have the installer somewhere... but digging it up might be a major bit of archeology. I have 17 DVD-Rs full of archived Poser content installers.

I'll hold off a bit until GWolf rolls his out. Looks AMAZING.
