Thank you guys, it worked.
I'm feeling a little lost being done after working for a long time on this image...

I can imagine that! Make another one!  ;)
It's the best therapy!

Fantastic job, Hannes. Well worth all your efforts, and I can imagine you're feeling a bit like people who stop working when they're 65. They drop in a black hole. Best therapy is indeed starting a new one.
I don't want to be picky, but there's one tiny thing that struck me; the hind rotor of the front helicopter. Did you use a water shader to blur it? It looks like a gray disc, and I would imagine seeing 2-4 blurred fans.

Thank you all!
Dune, I know that the shading of the rotors doesn't really look good, but as I already wrote, it's the closest I could get. It's a water shader.
I'd love to make it look like in the picture you posted, but unfortunately TG doesn't support image map greyscale falloffs, so I have no idea how to make it look correct.

the thing about the rotor may indeed be a bit picky ;-)

There is a method, Hannes. Try this.... (small fix-up in an army tent object) no waves of course, reflection set to 0. Image map shader to UV

Its great Hannes. The road is as crisp as I have seen. The lights work well at this quality level.


If you need something to do, do an animation of this scene!  :o

Holy shit, it works!!!
Thanks so much, Ulco! I have no idea why this works, but now I need to rework at least the part where the helis are.
Dear NWDA-guys, am I allowed to update my entry? I'll send the new image to you as soon as it's ready.
