What you think about making different skins for furniture set? I purpose 3 classic varies - wood (be more yellow in wood), black, white. Maybe someone have another thoughts about it?

 

Skins are always great. The high poly looks excellent. How many polys is it

 

 

No gem version

 

I like this one better. The gems were just dying to by stolen. :)

 

I don`t know what`s happening with the normalmap. I`ve never used crazybump.

Most of our assets are 512x512 but some are 1024x1024 as I recall. Because of memory bugs, most players have to set image downsize to 512 or lower so it would

probably be best to create a high quality 512 texture than let the engine degrade a 1024 one.

diffuse and normal for something that size should be 512. The specular (if it needs one) should be 256x256 at most.

About my troubles with UV texturing - have found 2 reasons:

1st - poly's must be in only one UV map, if they are present in other, even not used, UV maps it could be crashed in engine

2nd - Problem with copy/pasting poly that's already have UVmaps (For example - I baked 1 side of comode and after baking mirrored it - in result texture has bug in engine, 2nd example - with back fo comode it was in another layer because of use the same part of image that and side polys, when after baking return it to native - same bug happend in engine)

 

I hope my english is enough and sentences above have sence for other people )))

The one on the right looks terrific.

 

There are different ways to make skins. You make two different material shaders, and then use a .skin file to swap one for the other.

 

Here's an example of a chair skin:

 

skin green_armchair [name of skin]

{

model models/darkmod/furniture/seating/armchair1.lwo [the model the skin should affect]

armchair [original material] armchair2 [replacement material]

}

This is map resolution issue, need higher - looks better, I tried 1024x1024 realy not bad, and second polycount*2 - and then I think it will be almost like high poly %)

 

Maybe will experiment with this later, want to done with one set at last ))

How a model is unwrapped is key to packing in lots of detail. You want to look for reusable parts that can share UV space. In the case of that dresser, the legs, drawers, and handles are good candidates. Of course, you may already be doing this in which case you can ignore what I've said.

What material I must link to mirror? I copy/pasting next code but doesn't understand all of it, what string is responsible to level of reflection, and is there level of reflection or not...

models/Xex_models/mirror
{
{
mirrorRenderMap	  512 512  // size of the texture to draw the mirror view in
blend blend
red	  0.5
green   0.5
blue   0.5
// opacity
alpha   0.7
// these may not be necessary when I finish the code
translate   0.5 , 0.5
scale   0.5 , 0.5
} // End mirror effect
}

I've never used a mirror texture so someone else would have to help there. I know mirrors are pretty performance-heavy, so you should provide a non-reflective version for general use.

Remove the Alpha 0.7 line. It's making the mirror transparent.

Wow these are looking great! Always wonderful to see new assets.

"No proposition Euclid wrote,

No formulae the text-books know,

Will turn the bullet from your coat,

Or ward the tulwar's downward blow

Strike hard who cares—shoot straight who can—

The odds are on the cheaper man."

 

From 'Arithmetic on the Frontier' by Rudyard Kipling

      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.
