Hi Steve, I thought you might have been burning the midnight oil these past few weeks. The Momento360 site worked out great.

I don't know where to start with the compliments on your project, you have done wonders for the rest of us in being able to tour through this great room that has been a semi mystery all these years. I haven't been in a lot of engine rooms but your rendering overwhelms me with its realism and authenticity.

I find it interesting that we have gone from the clarity of some of the plumbing isometrics you made to the reality of the room being so full of pipes, gratings and machines that is actually very hard to see the organization of the systems. Even your early work that gave our first over all views of the engines in their finished form is getting obstructed with the other equipment in place. Maybe your project will have a place to show some of these features isolated from each other?

Also there are a number of petty details that we could debate here but I feel that if you create it you get to make the final choice so I don't see starting a nit-pick over them. I just trust that future viewers will appreciate that some of this is collective best guess rather than confirmed fact.

Have you considered inserting stock human figures in here? I'm thinking that having some fellows in dirty white boiler suits wearing black caps might look good leaning on the desk or tightening a bolt or oiling something might help give a sense of scale in the views.

I countered your realistic lighting for a while by turning my monitor way up, it helped me appreciate much more of the detail. That will be a conundrum of making the views authentic.

Again many thanks for treating us to such a grand show!!

Bill
