Hey, I'd definitely buy a copy off you now for $100 (Paypal right now) haha

(I'm totally serious) I can also do some high quality renders for you if you still wanted. Vray is a magical thing :)

Looks like these were cropped to fit, but you can see all at:

If anyones still interested I could post updates of my progress, so I could get tips/help/critics.

Cheers!

kingku,
I know it has been nearly two years, but do you still need someone who can render out the whole scene for you? I'm pretty certain I can help you out with that.

;-) Fabulous work.

Well, I'm fairly certain there are few people following this project anymore, especially since it has been two years since the last update, but finally I've decided to put up the entire Hogwarts model online for free! Thanks to everyone who supported me with their interest in the project and all the amazing reference pictures that helped me so much :). The scene can be updated and changed to fit your need, and all that I would ask for is credit if it is used in a game/movie/whatever. The only thing that I ask is for it not to simply be sold without permission from myself first.

Of course if anyone finds it useful and wants to donate to my cause of creating more models, I would not object! After all, creating the castle was done all on my own time without any compensation :lol:

I hope that releasing my work will allow others to spread my love for Harry Potter and especially the amazing Hogwarts Castle! Maybe it'll even inspire some to take a stab at recreating the castle themselves.

Here it is, the Hogwarts Castle along with the Quidditch Pitch! Enjoy!

And if the link ever goes down, just let me know and I'll re-upload it.

PS: I still have never seen a fully rendered version of my castle so if anyone would like to send a few high-resolution images my way I would be very thankful! ;) (So yes astetson, it would be amazing if you could render out the scene for me!)

PPS: It is a 3ds Max file, so sorry for those of you who use other programs. If someone would like to convert it to other formats, I would be extremely thankful. It would be cool if it wasn't simply exclusive to one (expensive) modeling program.

Hey guys, sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I believe the files that are missing were some texture files that I was messing around with earlier, but they aren't important. They aren't even connected to anything in the scene anymore, so they can be ignored!

I'm glad you're enjoying it! :)

Kingku-
Hi! I know this thread has been inactive for a while, and if you're not checking it, I guess I'll just go without, but anyways...I tried opening this in 3ds Max 2013, and got an error. The specific error is "An error has occurred and this application will now close." I realize that the message is not very helpful, and you may not know why this is happening, but I was just wondering which version of Max you made this in, so that perhaps I can figure out why I'm getting this error.
