Yet again it took a while for this update. College work got a bit crazy.

Where I put red these are the places where I'm guesting the vents go. Don't know if it's right though.

Looking good, LMC! (And what a great reference, Tom!)

That looks magnificent, LMC! I think the only details you need in that floor are the three round drains/vents.

I agree the floor platform is looking great, but yeah the 4 floor drains are just needed now.

Carry on with the great work LMC

Just needs a small tweak with two of those drains to finish the floor, LMC:
24.jpg
The ones to the left of the entry walk should be more towards the edges of the large vents (see the red dotted line above, and the repositioned drains). I checked that with the Google Maps TARDIS interior and the edges of the drains line up just about with the edges of the vents. The other two drains are perfectly placed.

Also, in the render with regards to the console, it looks like your floor vents need to move in closer to the center of the floor, or the console needs to be larger:
Console-Vents.jpg
Notice how the console extends a little wider than the inner vents (shown by the yellow arrows). Again this is a grab from the Google Maps' interior imagery. I tried to grab as much of the floor as possible so you could see what I meant.

Looking at it all, I think the vents and drains are spaced the way they should be (after tweaking those two drains I mentioned above); you just need to make the floor a little larger in diameter. Then you can enlarge the main console, without it crowding the side consoles, and everything should be perfect.

You're doing such a magnificent job with this render and I hope this helps you get that high level of accuracy that you're trying to achieve. Beautiful work so far!

OK I think I've done the tweaks right. Except the vents, I'll edit them later.

Also here is what the new floor looks like with the rest of the interior.

But I still think the console needs to be a bit bigger.

Also I think I might need to shift the bottom stairs along so they will look more neat and the rails can be done more easily.

That's all for now (It's been a while since I've said that)

You definitely have the vents and drains positioned perfectly, LMC! And I think it might be a combination of tweaks that you may be looking at to make things appear more accurate.

Since the edge of the console does extend farther out than the inner floor vents, and there looks to be more space between the drains and the edge of the platform (check that Google Maps TARDIS Interior for what I mean), I think if you make the console just a bit larger (not too much; if you make it extend out farther than your inner floor vents it will look too large), make the floor vents a bit smaller (and the drains to match them), and then slide the vents and drains inward towards the center of the platform to get the spacing between them right, then everything will fall into place.

(Does that make sense?)

I have just looked at the image from google maps, and I have noticed that the drains need to be moved inwards as at the moment yours are too near the edge.

δ³Σx², that's what I meant in my post above. The drains and the vents should be tweaked so they're a bit smaller, then moved in towards the center of the platform. That would put the drains farther in from the platform's edge, and would put the inner vents under the edge of the console (tweaking the console to make it a tad larger if necessary once the drains and vents are adjusted).

Another attempt of making the floor.

This is the best I can do. Hope you like it.
