— Joint Venture Nibor – Projects: Robin # 12: UU Room 3b —

Robin # 12: UU Room 3b

v00: Horo

Initiated by: Horo. Date: 29 January 2006.
Motto (by David): Due to the high levels of background magic in the vicinity, a typical map of UU vaguely resembles an exploding chrysanthemum and is usually only valid for a day or so. Some rooms contain other rooms which contain the room you started with (especially problematic for a conga line).
    One of the most notable rooms in UU is Room 3b. This room is not believed to exist, but a surprising number of classes are scheduled there. In fact, at times of great celebration in the city of Ankh-Morpork it is not uncommon for the entire faculty to be teaching there.
    Since the contents of all magic libraries are in L-Space, it is possible to enter a Library in one city and exit in another.

Horo created two L-shaped rooms with a square room in the center and a door in each corner.

Alternatively, the scene was rendered as a panorama with the same settings otherwise.


v01: David

The curious effect with the ceiling grittyness was a bug induced, being due to the fact that two surfaces were intersecting exactly. It took David a while to track that one down but he did and lowered the ceiling slight to prevent the collision and show things in a more correct and predictable light. Due to this change he seperated the uppermost light to a different group and increased it. The pillars were modelled in wings, David went for something baroque. He applied a mottled stone effect materal and put in a bit of carpet. He moved the camera to take advatage of this effect of semi transparent walls in the way it «processes» the repeated images of the pillars.
