Very nice, as always!
I'm happy to see your WIP pictures, the TA forum was seeming a bit dead these days. Concerning the ripples on the flags of the 3rd pic, do you plan to mesh them (via cloth sim) or only do it via texturing?
Anyway, I'll be definitely looking forward to seeing your progress on these Junon scenes. Do you intend to recreate the whole town for an overhaul of the FMVs?  :D
I should make a post on my (slow) progress in the mds5_i textures in the weekend.

Here's a better different render look

we'll see, if it is not needed, I won't. because Junon is big as it is, and if I can reduce any vertices, it's worth it (especially when things have to animated).
All the streets, with all the houses, and all the details, really slows this little old CPU very much down... :|

...and indeed it seemed a bit dead here. So hopefully people get inspired.  ::)

...an other rendered shot to see more details...

Did you render the third image with Octane? The "noise" effect seems familiar...:P

I tried my hand on it as well. Nowhere as good as yours though :P

Also I don't know if I am accurate or not but based on this picture the tube on the top of the picture looks like it has another one extruding outwards and upwards again. Your reference picture begs to differ though... What do you think???

If you take a look at the original and complete field file, it's much better visible.

the shadow you see on the pipe originates from the diagonal pipe above it.

You can also have a look at the Weapon animation, where it's in view in the first few frames.

Looking good! I really like the detailed reflections on the lamps. Looks like you'll have fun with lighting and reflections  :)
Do you have plans for modelling the outdoor landscape for the FMV?

thanx, yep there are some challenges in there  ;)

Does this answer your question?

Junon by Night

Just testing out some new hardware....
Not quite the water cooled supercomputer from Timu, but at least it is portable, and also has some blue lights on it as well, but fortunately not as bright...  ::)

That's going to be epic! Although it's not surprising that you may need better hardware when you get to model everything - I just re-watched the FMVs and between all the canons, the Sister Ray itself, the cliff in the back, and probably the old town of lower Junon, it's going to be very challenging. Even more so if you have to include all the Shin-Ra soldiers for the FMVs of the Weapon attack  :o

Recompiling Blender with different compiler flags will decrease render time even on slower CPUs.

IMO its not really worth it if you use a MINGW 64 builds from buildbot.
Never tried with ICC though.

That water looks amazing, but I'm worried it'd look less good in-game if that's not an animated map. A still background need still waters, not waves. A shame, because it really is gorgeous.

Man, getting final renders of all the scenes you've made will accumulate to months of rendering limbo  :evil:
I always enjoy looking through these threads, keep up the great work!

SpooX is alive! Happy times! Hurray!

Anyway, getting a noise-free picture of a ocean will sure take ages. Do you know some good sources of (free) images for 360 degree skies for enviro lighting? cgtextures does have those for free...
