The past week or so I’ve been digging in trying to learn all the new ways to do things in Lightwave 2019. I used LW2019s node graph and new sphere primitive to model our homeworld, using new high-resolution satellite imagery.
After I got the planet model looking decent I was feeling frisky so I modeled an orbital installation using Plant Factory. The green cells house solar collectors and an algae concentrate which reacts with the sunlight to generate limitless energy.
It also works for St. Patty’s day!
