Hey everyone,

 

I will post some pics from time to time here. Any criticism is appreciated, as well as improvement suggestions :)

 

The first one is a statue of a worker sitting on a stone. Well, it looked far better with more tris. Now it has less then 5000.

It doesn't look very TDMish.

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

It's not meant to be used for TDM. I'm just playing around. Maybe, after I've improved my skills, I'll do something I'm going to use in a mission. We'll see.

Nope.

 

Bloody, never had that idea. Will test that on my next model.

 

Thanks for the tip.

Yeah, the procedure is roughly:

 

Model a high poly model that will be used for normal map baking and also as base for creating the low poly version (either by decimating it or by retopology);

 

Make/produce the low poly version (by low poly I mean manageable poly count for a game, depending on what type of object it is, and its function),using the methods above;

 

Once the working model is completed, UV Map it and use the highpoly one to create the normals and all derivatives for the texturing process (whole thing varies from app to app), in my limited experience, it works best if both versions closely relate to each other;

 

Then its all about the texturing work, lots of photoshop/gimp hours. Since Doom changes how things look in game quite a lot, there's a lot of testing to make it look right.

 

You obviously already know how to get them in the game, so no problems there.

Sculptris Tutorial, part 1:

 

 

The audio qualtity is not optimal and there is a little delay between sound and video towards the end.

 

I hope this is useful. :)

Here is the ase exporter for Blender 2.6

 

Note that this is buggy. As described in the video, the output ase is missing a "}" in the Material block.

Awesome stuff my friend, gotta check it out in detail later to see if there's anything I might be missing. There should be more people into putting their own assets in their missions, instead of relying solely on the stock assets.

Awesome! Thanks for the tutorial! I just tried it and it worked nicely - custom stuff for the win! ... Now to get those 60.000 polys down to something reasonable ... :P

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
