The wooden structure worked well for erecting and servicing Zavora's multistage rocket, and it launched successfully, but... the engine flame was incompatible with the wood gantry. The structural elements close to the engine exhaust have caught fire. The launch crew having retreated a ways from the rocket for launch, it will take a few minutes for them to return. It's uncertain that they could have safely controlled the fire even if they stayed close. Zavora has components for a second rocket if necessary, but a new launch tower may be needed.
In the distance at left, the beamflash tower is now reports the fire.
Thanks to mazzam whose comment prompted this image.
The wooden launch gantry was constructed of parts from Medieval Construction Props from DAZ. The tank on the right and the beamflash tower are from Walden Mill, also from DAZ. The building behind the gantry is Dryjack's Old Shack freebie. The track and train cars are from the Wind Train with parts of the GWR Cordon Gas Tank Wagon atop the car chasses. The buffer at the end of the track is Dryjack's. The fires are from Jepe's FlameZ (DAZ).
The environment is the Australian Outback from DAZ, with a modified skydome texture using Flinks Sky Stars.
The scene, inspired by the Greatwinter trilogy, was composed and rendered in Poser 11 Pro and post-processed in Corel Photo Paint for some lighting effects.
