So, what are you working on right now?

The texturing is kinda flat. E.g. the eggplant is purple, but lacks that stylistic touch which made Thief's plumsies (the healing fruits in the later Pagan levels) distinct.

Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

These foods were based off of a photo realism approach. Given the recent criticisms of my art being more fantasy related to games such as World of Warcraft, I've been deviating from stylizing heavily (especially on organic substances).

 

To be fair I winced a little on that, as I was going for a look off the T2 deer leg for my deer leg color scheme. Overall I've been trying to take a very realistic approach. For instance every food here was sampling color palettes from real food to remain consistent. But we're all accustomed to our artistic differences are we knot? :P

I liked your more stylised models, so that may be the problem. :laugh: Realism is nice and fine, but a game does not necessarily benefit from full realism. I like food models like the blue cheese and the fish, because they somehow "fit" the visual world of TDM.

 

Another part is being concerned that bananas will start cropping up in TDM missions, and the tiny purist inside me is hopping up and down, screaming "THERE ARE NO BANANAS IN BRIDGEPORT!"

Hahaha, yes me and Goldwell discussed the bananas for a while. It's considerable that imports from outlying colonies would be available which is why they stayed. I mean I cut turkey, watermelon and a couple other things on the list but bananas were on heavy debate for a while. I'm kinda filling the role of making items when there's an immediate gap (like the food models) or just making exclusive gameplay related content because they'd be hella cool to see in game. We've still got more exclusives yet but we wanted a couple surprises for the release. That being said, this is our last teaser. So from here on out, I begrudgingly must make obscure posts about details I cannot convey with models I can't show you.

Our engine tends to oversaturate colours, so you might want to desaturate your textures to compensate.

Too late: check the models folder for Airship Ballet's 'The Smiling Cutpurse'. Epi is not the first to venture down this path to madness. :P

Some things I'm repeatedly thinking about...

For real, I second that. Epifire is doing A LOT of help here expanding already existing library of brushes, and models. I am enjoying this particularly because I am a fan of the Cobblestone textures as well.

After my long absence from bridgeport, TDM and DR (and some nice salute after my first post, thanks for that) i want to give you a short summary what i have done the last and what im going to do the next days.

 

In former times i created a campaign over about 5 missions in close collaboration with SevenUpMan. I have some of the maps on a good status, some are only beginnings/ patchworks.

 

Also i have plenty of maps which are more or less a study or a test. Also some of them got much bigger than i originally wanted them to get.

 

Before i will dive back into my older campaign i want to create a prequel/ mission 0.5 which will bring the storystone to roll. In the course of that i will recycle some of my older studies/maps.

 

Here is a (by far not finished) sneaky view on the first "target". Please keep in mind that im a bit rusty after three (?) years of abstinence :blush:

 

Hope this time i have some more endurance to reach more result! :ph34r:

 

Really interesting locale that presents a lot of vertical detail. Personal preference here, but it's very refreshing to see the darker sections without an over brightened ambient darkness.

We3lcome back, Johannes! If that is your rusty form, can we really complain? :laugh:

      Say, I know it's been a while since the site got overhauled from the crash. But did we ever figure out if/how to get the recent topics & replies list back? It's not a total deal breaker but it was nice for becoming a thread creeper again...

      Some of you who've been on the TDM discord know I was out of work last Winter, just putting in hrs for the developer portfolio. Currently I've been working a seasonal job to pay the bills and now I'm finally in my last week before I get bumped off. Things will be tight but I'm planning a long off period to make as much content as I can. Big plans in Unreal Engine as well as my most ambitious TDM collab yet! Never been so excited to be a stuck at home to pursue my life's work. With a lotta time and maybe some luck, I'm hoping to get enough art work done that I may start applying around to studios.

      I finally got around to play Prey and I truly loved it. It is an incredible homage to System Shock and Deus Ex. While the gameplay is not en par with those two titles, the game makes up for that with its well written lore and story. The whole "world" just feells so authentic and it features a ton of really god environmental story-telling. Recommended for every immersive sim fan, i.e., everyone on this forum.
