EDIT:
I have a question. Would you perfer this as a maze, as open tunnels, or something else? It is intended as a space station type structure. (eg. hanging in open space.)

Very nice! I'm guessing this is some kind of giant base or something...
Dang why didn't I think of that, it's so simple, but so awesome! :D Good job. :)

I did something similar to this at one point, but never finished it. Nice job. :)

Nice. As for the question, Will^H^H^H^HFriend, I'd rather have this as a maze, because I'm a person that likes mazes.

Very nice! This world has a lot of potential! It could become anything, but it could also be lots of things simultaneously!

that looks quite snazzylicious (I made it up, don't bother looking it up in the dictionary). Open tunnels would be ideal, however, they can be hard to create. Closed tunnels would also be very cool, but that makes it much much easier to get lost. The honeycomb feel is very industrious, I like it. You could also consider filling some of the spaces with rooms or something like that as well. Nice job!

Good background for a puppet show.

Very cool! As has already been mentioned, rooms in some of the honey comb spaces would be very neatcoolfun. (Don't bother looking that up, either)  [;-)
 
Good luck!!

"Beauty in simplicity" has been moved from (Fai) / (Forge)'s original post to this one.
 
Is it a new puppeteering club?

*coughcough* I thought you said you wouldn't use that phrase anymore *cough*
 
Thank you.
 
But I agree with Kruncher, in that I think Friend is a puppet.

They aren't me, I'll tell you that. I was thinking the same thing, actually.

Whoa!  Nice! :D It's a maze of tunnels, right?  It looks amazing.
This would be the perfect place for hiding around... :D Can't wait to try it out!  Good job! :D

As others have said, I also really like this design. Personally, I think that a mix of open/closed would be interesting. Like, have it mostly closed, but a gap in the ceiling to allow for flying out of if one desires.

Thank you all for the kind words and advice. I will be sure to incorporate most of it in my final design. This being my first project, I appreciate the positive response. Hopefully, once I figure out how to get it into Unity, I can have a demonstration for all of you to test!

I can put it into a Unity project for you if you'd like... I can also give you step-by-step instructions. Depending on what you're using to make this, you may or may not need Blender (another design tool)
yours helpfully,

OK, thanks for the offer. I've managed to get it into Unity. I looked up colliders and materials, and I should be good to go. One thing: Do you know why some polygons don't appear in the model once I've imported from SketchUp to Unity? It's really strange.
 
Thanks!

Puppet show. Afriend account was created after gamehackernoob used "A-Friend"

Not a friend, a gamehackernoob eavesdropper punk.

Who do you think you are, anyway? I've read all of your comments on my post here, and all you do is talk about 'puppets' and denounce me. You act all macho and mighty, and yet, from what I've seen in recent posts, your contibution is miniscule. I joined the forum a few days ago to post this, and all you've done is speak about some irrelevant topic I do not understand, and speak about me in seemingly derogatory terms. It's rude and disrespectful, and I would now like you to stop.
 
I've tried to get constructive criticism, and here you are disrupting the aforementioned process.
 
Thank you for your understanding.

I believe Ffroggy only has Unity 3, which means if he does put this into Unity for you the world will not be compatible with Mars Explorer. :/

I have Unity 2, which is compatible with Mars, so if you don't manage to get it into Unity yourself, or you only have Unity 3 as well, I'll be happy to put it into Unity for you :)

this is true, I do only have Unity 3.4, however, I can bundle a whirld for you and send it to someone for export into syn3h

There's nothing bad with it Ender. It's not even annoying.
