Ranger 1 (Interstellar)

28.0k Mattangi2  1.9 years ago
Auto Credit Based on Mattangi2's Ranger 1.5 2 big

The first of my Interstellar Series that I will probably finish within the next 2 years cause my build speed is like that.

The Ranger was utilized by the crews of the Lazarus Missions, and then by the 4 man crew of the final stage of the Lazarus, called the Endurance. The crew, lead by Dr. Brand, consisted of Pilot Joseph Cooper, Mission Physicist Romilly, and Team Dead Boy Seneca Crane.

I’m sorry, that was a terrible description but if you haven’t watched Interstellar yet, then most of this description is not going to make sense to you, and if you haven’t watched the Hunger Games, then that last part of the vehicle description is not going to make sense either.

Some Pics

Miller’s Planet at Sunset


Miller’s Planet (These two Pictures Taken using a Custom Map I Threw Together)


Ranger Flying Through Miller’s Clouds


Ranger Flying Around Miller’s Planet

This movie is a good movie.

And there, I present the most accurate Ranger on this site.

And though part count is high, most parts are set to "calculateDrag = false" so it should be fine.

here i've posted a link to the map that I threw together in 10 minutes that I used to take the two Miller's Planet landed in-water pictures. It's literally just terrain 1.5 meters under the water. And there's also a giant iceberg shaped thing that I tried to use as a giant wave but it didnt work out. So yeah, just kind of ignore that i guess.

    You should build a working TARS, or perhaps The Endurance

    @1342791782 nah its a movie screenshot that I increased the contrast so that it fit more with SP graphics

    @Prolex917 ye, according to nolan, the launch vehicle was designed to mimic the look of the saturn v cause viewers would be familiar with it, but it was not the saturn v.

    @Mattangi2 I'm pretty sure that the launch vehicles in Interstellar were derived from the Saturn rockets, but not an exact copy

    @Starmang10 The rocket used in Interstellar is some sort of SLS, so its definetally not the saturn v

    @Tessemi my coulds look fine when i run it in unity as a shader, but the two problems im facing in SP is how the light gets through (it looks so weird, idk how to explan it, like a white turd maybe? idk, it does not follow the lighting of its surroundings at all), how it looks when youre viewing it from inside the cloud, and yes, 0.5 fps lag.
    I know i said a couple hours, i meant couple days, im away and my laptop is therefore also away, i will send you a copy then. sorry about that.
    and i didnt even think to contact them, i will do. Thanks!

    @Tessemi I would have just used your cloud mod, it's really good, but I just needed like 10x more clouds lmao

    @Tessemi yep, you got most everything right. With the noise and all.
    What I'm actually trying to do is set the clouds as a shader.
    The shader works perfectly. My problem and where I lack coding skills is implementing the shader into SP.
    I'll send you a copy of the shader code once I get home in a couple hours.

    @Tessemi its a little bit of both i guess
    Its a screenshot of a cloud mod im working on (that i wanted to release before i release this plane but turns out im trash at using unity and C#, and at this point, i dont think ill ever release it, it just is so bad and buggy) that i green screened behind the ranger.
    And also thanks!
