The top picture shows the scene without the effect of 'Diffuse light'. The bottom one - with.

Texturing the Windows

Let's take a look at some of the Shaders I used for the scene. Most of it is basic stuff but maybe of use for someone.

For the window I used a Phong Shader set to 100% transparency and with a small highlight. To immitate a room behind the window I placed polycube behind all the windows to give some depth. This effect is mostly visible in animations.

The "room/window" map was connected to the color and ambient color. The diffuse was set to 0.000 and the glow to 0.430. For the map itself I used a pictue of a reflective window.

Texturing a Ventilation Tube

This is a part of the SpaceCity scene. Here we used a "3D Total Texture " without altering in Photoshop. This part of the scene is completely modeled using Nurbs.

I used a "2D placement node" for the tube so that the texture conforms to the shape of the tube.The same map was used for color and bump.

This is what I have so far a simple looking metal shader, next we work on the highlight.

Hi Daniel, I'm working right now in my modeling reel and it is a project very similar to this one. Could you please show a little bit more on how you did the images that go behind the windows? Thanks It's looking great by the way.
