Sounds good, we need butt straps and stringers....lots and lots of stringers! Then we need it to go to Alocrom, after riveting of course

Subscribing to this, interested to see how it pans out. And now I am also particularly interested in how you build it

I am currently on my first play through of Mass Effect, the beacon isn't exactly the best looking thing. But if you manage to achieve the lighting effectively then it would actually look sweet in real life.

Yeah, it actually is pretty goofy looking, but the designs should look sweet all lit up. That is the main reason I decided to do it. I am going to pretty much copy them exactly.

I am going to need to cost up all of the materials as well first before I start anything, I don't want to end up with a money pit.

You signed a blood oath to create a money pit when you started building PC's

But yea, good luck with the project

Ok, this is off-topic, but... I havent played Mass Effect yet, and that picture looks like the game has really bad graphics. Looks like something out of the PC version of Halo. Is that what it really looks like?
post #18 of 33
Imho, the graphics are great, not stunning...but great (but I suppose it is subjective).

This is going to be interesting, itll be nice and roomy.

My suggestion for the blue illuminated areas is either take large clear sheets of acrylic, or transparencies from kinko's, cover them with tape to match the designs and then paint the exposed areas black, then all you have to do is put some blue lights underneath and itll look perfect.

Have you gotten to the second beacon yet?

Because I dont think you can get up close to the first one because you end up destroying it. But I think you can get near the second one.
