Thanks once again and sorry :s. I have a screenshot of one of my objects I'm working on the moment: pasteries.

I'm having however a problem to make the texture looking right on the brown parts. I suspect is because of the size of the imagem but I'm not sure.

Heh, those would be good if Christine ever decides to make a TDM FM. (She loves putting pastries in her FMs.)

Cool to see more new models, but you would still have to make this one quite low poly (if you want to have a bunch of them spread over a table), and small objects are quite hard to see inside TDM, so you would probably be better off eliminating tiny details and perhaps focusing on a more generic mesh with several different types of textures, so you could have variety.

Glad someone like pastories :).

Glad you like to see my exemple, I'll keep in mind your advice :).

I write this in sections to be more easy Once again opinions everyone :). If you want me to do more with other testures I can try to find more, or if you wish I do more with other forms just say I'll be glad to make :). Meanwhile I'll do other things of the list.

To be honest, I think the C model would work the best - its such a small model, the other ones would just be too ambiguous (you wont be able to tell what it is). They are still far to high poly from the look of them, things like some of the almonds could just be placed in the texture with a bump map giving it "volume", instead of a mesh of itself. I would take a look a "low poly models for games" tutorials in order to get a good feel of how simplified they have to be in general and how a lot of the work can be done through textures.

Thanks for your response :), I'll look up a solution for the textures and post here.

Hello,
I'm back with something that The Dark Mod doesn't have, hospital stuff. The frist thing I'll post here I call it cleaner table, is a table where the doctors and nurses study the corpses and clean them after to put them in the morgue. Probably isn't the right name so if one of you knows it please tell me to correct.

Please also tell me your opinions.

Looks good and is really something what is missing in TDM! (Make sure to make it fit to an AI character in length.)
What is this green thing? Is it a flexible tube? - Don't know if rubber would fit to the steam punk scenario, but hell, why not.

Btw.: Have you began mapping your hospital map as well?

It certainly wouldn't look out of place in Shalebridge Cradle or the morgue section in Rose Cottage. I like it :smile:

@ Radiant - no it doesn't look very steampunk but I think that hospital sections might be the exception to the rule. When I think of hospitals I think of silver tables for autopsies and operations and silver scalpels as opposed to the typical brass and bronze associated with steampunk. I also think of light colours such as blue, green and grey as opposed to darker shades such as brown and yellow that are again associated with steampunk.

Keep up the good work Loa

Hello Radiant :),
thank for your fedback and the flexible green something similiar of you said. it's used in gardens as well to water flowers for exemple. No I'm not working in my map yet, I'm with fllood right now helping with some models.

@ Sir Taffsalot- Thank also for your opinion I really apreciate :).

Also guys I start to make some cirugial objects, I will make these ones:

I've got some pointers that could help improve your models:
- Do try to bake some ambient occlusion to your models preferably from a high-poly model along with other maps (such as normals, cavity, curvature, etc), but if not at least bake some directly from the lowpoly as that'll give your models a lot more depth.
- If you have to use photo-textures try to use some that are as flat as possible where you'd preferably get the bigger shapes from a highpoly bake.
- Do use smoothing groups/split polys to make sharper edges where you've got sharp angles (i.e every angle greater than maybe 70 or 80 degrees).
- Do try to add more logical details such as scratches along exposed edges

I'd recommend you take a look at xNormal and try to incorporate that into your workflow. Even if it takes a lot longer to make highpolys the resulting models will often be well worth the extra time invested.

Hello Nosslak,
thank you for your response, sorry however if I'm answering just now.

I'll see what I can do in my models to improve them, about the details I can make examples of the same object. I had in mind making three: one more clean, dirty (which is the case I post) and rusted. Details I can add later in other example of the same object.

Hello again and sorry for my non-existence presence for a while but I've been busy. Today I will show you a hospital bed without textures, so you can give me your opinion as usual :). I must warn you the bed is in this position so you can see better.

First time I saw the thread but i'll try and give pointers to important object details for TDM.

Polycount (more importantly Tri count) is pretty important. Doom3 can handle quite a bit more than Thief 2, but still, everything counts.

You haven't posted the counts but they look pretty high. The wireframes you show are mostly bounding boxes, maybe sub division? Things like those pastries should probably be somewhere around 100 tris max per object. You can still get a pretty rounded square at that size/shape.
And you can make a shadowmesh that is around 24 tris.

The whip cream swirl shows the tris and it is VERY high poly.

------
You should be able to find more info on the forums, I've typed it up in detail quite a few times.

You can also look in DR at objects that are similar to compare tri counts. You can also look at the wire frames to see how they were built.

Did you base this on any kind of reference? It looks awfully modern to me.

Yes I did :

I thought this beds were from this time but guess I'm wrong.

Don't worry Obsttorte despite the picture doesn't show in detail I can understand it, and thanks for posting it.

Thanks Baddcog for the observation, will keep that in mind.
