Object packs for use in your 3D projects
Iron Sky Model and Scene Pack Vol. Three, features two very special ships from the feature film "Iron Sky".
First up, the Russian "Mir" which is a proverbial kit bash if there ever was one in science fiction, the "Mir" from Iron Sky is it. A reflection of the horrific (if not always fully of surprises) state of Soviet and later Russian Federation space programs this ship combines what was supposed to the "burn up and splashdown" re-entry disposed of space station of Taco Bell publicity stunt fame fa few years back. That and spare parts of just about anything the Soviets and later the Russian Federation space programs shot into orbit. Meticulously detailed in many places, while head scratching in a few others where details could have been really been driven towards, the "Mir" in Iron Sky is a border line capital ship and the direct opposite of the USS George W. Bush scene in the film. It's primary weapon is in effect, a Particle Projection Cannon with its power source said to be re-purposed nuclear material from failed Mars missions, or orbital nuclear weapons platforms. Take your pick. With the "Mir" you probably would be right with both. "It came in pieces" so to speak, and the primary weapon system is a frontal assault type, more than likely intended to strike at ground based targets such as ICBM silos, power plants, critical infrastructure or ocean faring weapons platforms such as American Aircraft Carriers and their support ships.
Fully rigged, this model and scene set up for LightWave 2015.3 (and previous versions going back to 10.1) has been checked and ready for you to play around with and study. It includes the original engine system and PPC weapon rig used in the feature film. Please note, the final effect was treated heavily in post and color corrected to the final result one sees in the picture.
Next up is the controversial, almost lost to several hard drive crashes and idiots with lawyers and market courts with no concept of reality... the Japanese "Banzai" Ship. This ship has seen work in 4 different 3D packages. Originally built in 3DSMax, then modified and cleaned up in Modo, before being completely overhauled again in LightWave3D in order to get it it to hero level as picture ready requirements needed to be upped to the best level possible after several shots were added to the feature film shot list with close ups of this ship being called for (because its that's cool). This meant final work completed including the volumetric engine system and laser bank weapons rigging by Kat himself who also prepared it for destruction/ramming duties in shots found at the end of the picture. A combination of LightWave3D Modeler (mostly Modeler working on the fly during shot set ups) and 3D-Coat was used to produce the damage morphs needed to finish the job. 3 highly skilled VFX artists contributed to the design, construction, and "flight" of this model and it was produced completely independent of the "Production Designer" on the show who interfered constantly, with the VFX process. Maybe that's why it's so cool? Yes, because it's an absolutely original design.
Seb, Tuomas and Kat say "banzai!" mofos!
"The Commonwealth Ships"
Three "Earth Fleet" ships, specifically those from the British Common Wealth as we referred to them on the show are included in Iron Sky Model and Scene Pack Volume 2. You get some really awesome craft in this one!
The British "SpitFire", the Australia "Rooketer" (roo as in kangaroo) and the Canadian "CanadArm3". Each of which includes their appropriate volumetric engine set-ups and feature animated moving parts with the exception of the CanadArm3 ship which didn't have any moving parts. These are all "Hero" models, meaning they were the ones used for close up shots and later the base for downres or proxy objects used for shots where they appear in the distance or for previs. These models are an essential starting point to the series of packs being released later where entire shots will be made available to LightWave3D users with the goal of pretty much the entire work done in LightWave3D for the original film, being released. 4K, 6K and even 10K resolution texture maps are included where applicable, matching exactly the way they were used on the show.
After 7 long years, Liberty3D.com is proud to announce the availability of the Iron Sky LightWave3D assets library. Kat has opened up the “vault” and begun to prep each of the main Earth and Moon NAZI ships featured in the first film. These are not baked down, neutered versions of the originals. They ARE the originals! Used in the show!
Initially produced using LightWave 10.1 and early beta versions of LighWave 11, all of the scenes have been pulled forward to LightWave 2015.3 for maximum compatibility. LightWave users from LightWave3D 9.6 to LightWave3D 2015.3 can load these scene files up along with the objects almost by default. Only two 3rd party plug-ins are required; DP Kit and DP Light which are both free to download and use. DB&W’s Material Booster Node may be required for some scenes to load correctly but is not required should you not have it. It is optional but we encourage you to support DB&W by picking up their tools.
LightWave3D 2018 Compatibility is not entirely possible (at least out of the box) due to the massive changes in the rendering, shading and lighting systems in the new versions of LightWave3D. However, Kat is working on that. Most of the basic surfacing will come in with some adjustments using the emulated “layer” system but really it should be rebuit for the new PBR technology in LightWave3D 2018 and beyond. The lighting on the ships, specifically the volumetric lighting systems such as those for the engines of most craft will also have to be adapted to the new render and volumetric technology in Lightwave3D 2018.
These incredibly rare and detailed assets represent thousands of hours of effort to produce and we are offering them exclusively to the LightWave3D community in their original form as an educational initiative. LightWave3D users new and old can study them and learn while also adapting them to their own scenes or making use of them as they see fit for their own reasons. Kat is granting a limited license for use by individual users of LightWave3D and options for commercial use as well.
Several packs are planned and in the works. First up is Iron Sky Model and Scene Pack Volume 1.
Iron Sky Model and Scene Pack Volume 1.
Three iconic ships are included in Iron Sky Model and Scene Pack Volume 1. The USA’s George W. Bush, the Moon NAZI “Tanhauser” Zeppelin and the Moon NAZI Valkyrie. Each of which includes their appropriate volumetric engine set-ups an in the case of the Valkyrie the volumetric gun system which are able to be animated and aimed for firing. These are all “Hero” models, meaning they were the ones used for close up shots and later the base for downres or proxy objects used for shots where they appear in the distance or for previs. These models are an essential starting point to the series of packs being released later where entire shots will be made available to LighWave3D users with the goal of pretty much the entire work done in LightWave3D for the original film, being released. 4K, 6K and even 10K resolution texture maps are included where applicable, matching exactly the way they were used on the show.
This is a set of High Quality Traffic signs objects for LightWave 3D version 11.
