Rover Latest!
The landing crew upon arrival fits the rear platform, it is packaged aboard the cargo Lander that arrived a year earlier and is fitted using the roof-mounted hoist, (still in my head’s hard drive).
Having a play with Imagine’s ‘cloud’ texture as a better, subtler way to dirty an object than ‘dirt’! Just turn off the textures filters and colour the cloud and you’re away!
Those hated, by me, dust-busters, (mudguards or fenders) are being damaged already! I used a fuzzy-mountain profile brushmap as a stencil to cut the edges away. The beauty of this technique is that you can cut holes without loosing an objects attributes or its numerous subgroups and brushes. The meshes seen on the platform are formed using this method, where a flat render of Imagine’s ‘tritile’ texture was captured and the black areas became stencils to produce a two-faced fence effect!
The chassis has been dirtied and re-detailed, which hardly shows from most angles, but I know its there and raised to operating height.
I even found my old track brushmaps and left tracks in the Martial regolith!
