I decided to revise the CG model for Bibble's Bar. It still isn't done, but I figured I'd at least post pictures of the current work-in-progress.
Here are before-and-after pictures comparing the previous version of Bibble's Bar with the new version:
Of course, the main difference is the removal of the stadium seating that used to surround the room. The original Jedi Temple Briefing Room model had that distinctive stadium seating and I think removing it makes it less obvious that we used that model to create Bibble's Bar.
Here's a comparison of the original Jedi Temple Briefing Room model and our remodeled version of Bibble's Bar:
Hopefully, aside from the stairs, it's hard to tell it's the same model...
In addition to removing the stadium seating, I also changed the texture mapping on the walls, added a bar, and added tables. Here are some random close-ups of the bar:
And here's a close-up of one of the tables (NOT in its final position -- this was a test picture from when I was testing different texture maps on the table):
In fact, you can tell it's a test picture because not only is the table not in its final position, but the white/glowing tabletop panel is also too low (which is why it has that weird look rather than being a solid off-white).
Overall, I think we're moving in the right direction. The new version looks more like a bar to me, although it still needs finishing touches (set dressing, etc.). I'll post more pictures when the model is further along...
