Which has a great cover illustration.

Thank you! and it's already on this site! sorry I missed it. The style of the illustration is so evocative of the time, will we ever see its like again in a post AI world?

 I love that illustration @dr hue it is wonderful! Where is it from?

Maybe there's a glowing sphere in the middle of the torus, like the clapper of the bell, and when the cloister bell chimes it begins to move back and forth colliding with the torus...

Here's a nice milestone, the "building" of the Logopolis corridor cluster is now complete and I can start playing around with lighting and textures, especially for the cloister room.

This is a render of the whole map, with some experimental lighting.

I decided that the transparent roundels are electro-luminescent, so directly emit light, rather than having a light shone through them from behind like they did on set. This is another consequence of roundel walls being visible from both sides in a "real" TARDIS.

I've only done some of the roundels illuminated at the moment to see the effect, and I gave the ones in the cloister room a slight greenish tint, to go along with the green-lit corridors surrounding it (although I've only actually added green to one of them at the moment). In the screenshots from the episode, sometimes these roundels are lit-up and sometimes they aren't. Maybe their level of illumination scales to the threat level.

The white torus in the centre of the cloister room is what I imagine the cloister bell actually looks like. It doesn't sound from the noise it makes that it is an actual metal bell, so I'm interpreting it that from below, looking up at the ceiling of the cloister room you would see a ring of white, as if the rim of an actual bell was sitting on a ceiling panel, even though it's actually the visual output of whatever advanced computer is monitoring everything and makes the decision that the bell needs to ring. It's a ring that rings....

I was also thinking that the roundels in the cloister room might flash or pulse when the bell rings.

Great build, it always reminds me of this image.

I hope you can save your build.

Quote from: Rassilons Rod on May 22, 2024, 10:40 pmSorry for the delay, here are some grabs for you. :)
Some are from the episode, but I found a few interesting ones in the Photogallery too.

These are great, thanks! I had gathered a few reference images from across the internet, but it was a happy day when I discovered that the photogalleries on the DVDs often have photos of the sets and props from unseen angles, as they are usually clearer than screengrabs. I've not seen that black-and-white one before though, so that's particularly good!

QuoteAlso a few from corridors, just because I always liked Romana's room. It's a shame they simplified it so much! :)

Yes, hard to call it a room, when it only has two walls. My version has four walls and a secret en-suite bathroom, that she definitely put in when remodelling. ;) I'll do a bed too, but not all the cushions and clothes. The coatstand looks like a white version of the one from the console room, so that will be two for the price of one.
