This project is a quite important one to me. First, I’m a trekkie and was proud of flying a danube runabout, second, this mod was technically far ahead from other projects this time. I already used ambient occlusion maps, baked indirect illumination into the textures which could be activated via “light on” switch and so on. Even though the geometry and the texture resolution are outdated I still love it. I would really do a revival for this ship in the Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

I already remodeled the runabout years ago with higher polycount but the famous hdd headcrash took this completely into death, too. Only 2 renderings have been survived. There was no time for mapping and texturing but the test renderings are still good enough to get shown.
