Default The Emerald Monarch - 400dton Frontier Merchant

Since this forum has been opened, I thought I would post a shot from my work in progress Traveller movie. The ship is a Lightning Class 400dton Frontier Merchant, from the GURPS Traveller: Interstellar Wars.

I've also added a little bit of history to the ship in the description.



I want to say thanks to Jesse DeGraff who gave me the information to get the ships proportions correct.

Stay tuned for the completed movie.

Thanks, I'm really looking forward to having it finished as I've been working on it for a while now. The modelling for the movie is complete, and I'm now working on setting up the shots, so it's not too far away.

It's just a hobby project, but I hope people will like it.

Looks as good as Jesse's!

(The planet needs work, though).

Good luck with the movie - you're gonna need it!

Mostly, the bump scale - those mountains look 1000km high!

For those interested in following the progress of my Traveller movie, below are links to the opening shot and a spin render of the Emerald Monarch herself.

The opening shot.

I'm interested to get people's feedback, both good and bad.

Those interested in Traveller astro-geography.

The planet is Nusku, which orbits the star 61 Cygni A, and seen in the distance is the binary systems secondary star, 61 Cygni B.
