Hi there!
I'm working on Lunar Mining Stations addon. It's nearly finished, although I wanted a nice DG skin for it.

See here for detais:

Hey shedalier :)

I love the idea. Personally I prefer to use Mars for bases and stuff like that though, but I'd love to give it a go with
the skin...

Do you have any idea, wish, request about the design. A sample, scanned drawing? It would help me, to narrow
down the options.. I've done a few skins, so once I nail a the design it should be done fast :)

Cheers,

Hi Doc!

I don't have any idea for now. I'll be thinking about it some more.
I gave a few propositions on main forum.
I thought about something simple, metalish.
Maybe take a look at this for inspiration: http://www.istockphoto.com/file_closeup.php?id=313429

Also, I thought about the logo. Here is a propostion (simple paint sketch):

Oh yeah. I think I get it.. Something like this then:



And then you can always make a more stylized version of it, for a metallic plate look :)

like this (with a bit more cleaning of course):



Cheers :)

I should have some more time over the weekend. Maybe I can come up with a LMC version of this.. It's from my
unfinished Mars base, heh

I saw you were doing some ground base meshes as well :) maybe you could use a "welcome" sign :)

Yep. The addon is mainly a set of bases. Maybe I could use the sign on mining units too? ;)

You should yes :) But I can only do the skin for the DG3.. I never did textures for anything else.

Not really. I had to resize it a bit to fit 2^n dxt format, and also made it smaller.
Is there any progress with DG skin?

Thanks for the logo. The bases are done, but if you have something nice to add, please tell me :badsmile:
I'll be now preparing a nice readme.

Well, I haven't started yet. If you don't mind waiting, give me time over the weekend, as I'm working two jobs and
can't really afford the time during the week.. :)

I have a basic idea for the skin (gray, with some "burn marks"), plus I will try to make the logo stylized.. Sort of like a
steel plate with engraved text and pictures.

Cheers,
Janez

Okay, the logo plate is finished, unless you have some suggestions. I will use the text and similar colors for the DG3
skin.

Here you go:



PRIZE question: Who can read what it says in the lower right corner of the plaque? :)

Thanks Doc!
I was a bit too hurry with the skin, sorry :wall:
I'm going to change the texture of the plate.
I'm looking forward to any news.

Yes, NEWS :)

I finally had time last night and the right inspiration to finish your skins. I took the liberty of making actually two of
them, so LMC now has two registered DG3s.
The 001 (Galileo) and 002 (Tycho)

Here is a screenshot:


get the pack here:
http://orbiter.vidmar.org/LMC-DG3-skins.zip

I hope you'll feel it was worth the wait and enjoy :)

Cheers,
Janez

PS: I also made a circular text around the top hatch saying "Emergency Hatch - Explosive Bolts".. Just thought it fit
there nicely :)
