I finally finished my NES!

source

I'll take any critiques you guys give me, and then I'm off to model a TV to hook it up to.

P.S. The source is just the source of the NES object. I used a seperate file to render this scene. There is nothing else in the scene right now but I plan on changing that and I wanted to make sure I had the NES in a file all by itself so I could add it to other scenes easily.

the rounded edges! i'll have a look at the source, because im really interested in how you did them!

That's pretty realistic. I think your light source is a bit bright, though, it's hard for me to see, and it seems a bit too white - wasn't it more of a light grey? Hard to remember. Good job, anyway. I too would like to see a controller. =)

Random piece of advice: don't use a PNG for displaying stuff like this, try a JPG instead.

You're right it is pretty friggin bright. It didn't look like that awhile ago I'll have to render it again. Hmm odd.

Grumble the port is just made with cylinders, a triangle shaped prism and lots of boxes to fill in the holes. I could have done the entire thing with rounded edges using that technique but I'm way to lazy to start over. And ok I'll do a controller next but THEN comes the TV.

Thanks for the replies.

It seems to be very well put together, and very realistic in shape.

The bad thing is, it has no texture whatsoever, so the acheivment gets a bit lost.

I'd recommend making the corners slightly rounded to look more....solid...and dropping it into photoshop to get some texture into it, make it look like it's been used

A great start all in all.

If you want to round the corners of your prism, I recently created a roundedprism macro here. Read the comments at the beginning of the file for an example of use. In any file you use it in, you'll have to include it as so:

#include "roundedprism.inc"

DL: You're right. It is a bit too clean to be a 15 year old system. (Wow has it been that long?!?) I'm going to rounf off the corners too (Something I had wanted to do since I started but now I can do very easily with Slime's Marco. THANKS SLIME!!!

I am having two little problems with the macro though. First off in the documentation it says:
// #declare myobject = roundedprism(mypointarray, -1, 1 .3, yes, no)
shouldn't there be a common right about... ... ... ... ... here ^
and 2ndly when I type this:
#declare nesbottom = roundedprism(nespointarray, -2, 2, .015, no, no)
I get an error that says the 2nd no wasn't expected. I'm sending it too many arguments.

For now I guess I just won't merge but tell me if you can fix or update it. Its really a great tool.

Back to work.

I just find one major error. The objects your include generates arn't accurate. I made one that should have been a rounded box, but when placed next to some real boxes you could tell that the generated one was askew. I don't know what causes this since I don't know that much about the pov scripting language yet but I hope you can figure it out. If you want I can send you some source to show you what I mean.

Oh, yup, that first thing you mentioned, there *should* be a comma there, my bad. Although, for some reason, POV-Ray seems to support it anyway, strangely.

In the second example you gave, you had two "no"s, for a grand total of six arguments. I'm not sure where your second "no" came from, but the function should only have five arguments.

Can you show me the source of the problem you found?

I thought there were 2 boolean arguments in the end. 1. is the object concave and 2. should it be merged? Thats how the docs made it sound anyway.

Try this source to see if you can find the bug.

Ah, alright, I figured it out. I also fixed the little bit of documentation in my roundedprism.inc file to reflect the way it should actually be used.

BTW, you'll have to comment out one line in your scene, I think, it's the one with the comment saying "// top"; the first box inside your NES declared object.
