    Thanks Dave, L_M, Zoo and Pix for your comments.

    L_M I checked the poly count in max and it told me 194,463 ...but i'm not sure.....that seems like so many...lol....i don't feel like i've done that many..lol..but i guess its right

    Zoo Yeh the link thing is a bit odd..lol.. as for that last render it might have been around 10 minutes but I'm not sure...I'll do another and let you know

    Pix about the low-rez-y-ness of thew pillars and floor this is only my first pass...i haven't gone through and detailled/tidied things up yet

    EDIT: Okay Zoo the render took 13:40 with a skylight and 2 omnis but on the other side it took 0:15 with just the default lighting...lol

    okay....so its been a while....and i have a good reason...lol

    went into hospital on the 30th for surgery and spent 7 days in there....am out now and can only do limited amounts of sitting.....so i don't know how well i'm going to go finishing this model....but i'll try....

    i was experimenting before with baking textures so that the renders are faster but its a long process (well for my model it is....lol)

    gunna try and start working on the model again in the next few days

    We could extend the deadline... Feb. 31... March 1st... etc. but what's the point in that. Some of these projects might take people till summer. But we'll judge it based on quality not completedness. If that's a word? So to get any quality done it has to be complete to some degree... so it all works out. But I'd like to see a project as good as this one finished some day. If not by Jan. 31st then another month or so later.

    well i couldn't help myself so i started doing the walls around the sides

    although i'm a little dissapointed because i did it all out of order so it hasn't turned out how i had originally planned but its getting there.... still needs details and the lower section of the wall...but it gives the general idea and looks good enough....

    EDIT: and i thought i'd do a complete render fo the model...this took 19 minutes..lol...and it was only after it had finished i realised i left in my backup copy of one of the front pillars so it blovks part of it out...but oh well

    okay here's a sneak peak...basically cos i've been working on the elevator door section for about 3-4 hours straight now and i wanted to show something...lol

    just the wall and the doorway...it took forever to work out a logical sequence to do the cutting and boolean'ing so it came out neat but i got there in the end....

    [image=http://img33.imageshack.us/img33/5172/0361vr.jpg]

    still have the door, the button panels to either side of the door, the doodads up above the door and the inside of the actual elevator (still working out whether i should do that...what do you all think?)

    ok..well i must say even i was shocked by how cool this looked...lol...

    here's the finished (well theres no doors...but there will be) elevator wall. which means that practically the model is finished.....depending on whether i add some extras

    just a small written update on where i am with the competition...

    i don't plan on doing any more new bits of modelling (ie elevator and such) but instead i'm just going to spend the next few days going over everything i've done so far and make it look as good as i can....

    that's not to say i wont do the elevator...i will....just not for the competition
