So, what are you working on right now?

I personally wouldn't have it come "out" anywhere on the screen, but below it, so you saw only the last half of it and it was spreading out and its velocity was slowing.
Then it's going to look like your naval is on fire.
I'd guess it would have to be pretty thin to look right.

Let's not even think what it'd look like then! :laugh:

It could look good as part of a scripted sequence I think, like when he first walks outside, you get a V.O. with the breath and the particles and him sounding cold ... a bit like the V.O. in Gathering at the Inn actually. It gives you the sense that it's really cold outside. But it wouldn't have much added value after that and might be a distraction, so you might have it just for that first time. But who knows? Any interesting idea is worth running a test demo and seeing how it looks in-game, and you can be surprised what works and what doesn't.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

What, dont like the visual details? I love them, sorry. Its a good thing to, being an animator and all.

 

For clarity, I meant to not be too solid in density. Noticeable from a distance, yet subtle. If they are a stream of multiple puffs so that they will do in different directions when the head is turned, they do in different directions. I've seen good breath effects, so i know it can be done, but I unfortunately can't help you with how.

 

How about lets not keep de-railing this thread (like im doing)? Next person to talk about it creates dev thread?

 

I think i even remember my first experience with breath effects, which was Rogue Spear. You can see what they did here back in 1999

I've been working on my first mission for some time now, hopefully this will get finished one day. Trying not to get too ambitious, so just a standard "take the streets to rich man's house, loot said house" mission (unless of course I happen to come up with something great that simply _needs_ to be made). Neither of the areas below are finished, but starting to look like something anyway.

Starting to look good, and that's a lot of stuff already. I need to procrastinate less and build more; I spend altogether too much time thinking about details.

This is what I'm working on. Nothing fancy grand just yet, I'm only testing out some of the core textures I've made to see how they look inengine.

 

Also, could someone please for the love of all things holy and nice PM me my password? I've been hammering the board trying to log in, and I can't find a "forgot your password" option anywhere. :(

And added some windows and a skin

Did some work on a special loot item too but it needs some final tweaks. Might hold it until my mission is released.

 

Still need to make .def for the moveable windows.

Looking very good but consider scaling down the wallpaper texture; its default is a bit large.

 

Those hanging oil lamps; where are they casting light? Might be the perspective but they appear to be over the other lights?

 

Hmm... no it seems i have just dajusted them bad. Those oil lamps.... i dont think they fit anyway but i cant find nice hanging lights for that place

 

@ SiyahParsomen: Yeah you should do that, i want to play yours too^^

 

@Melan: thank you! :)

A nice, atmospheric shot, Sonosuke. I particularly like the staircase.

      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.
