Does anyone have a life size statue of Neptune?

Heyo All,

 

JUST TO BE CLEAR! I'm looking for a game model, not a real statue.

 

I'm looking for a life size statue of Neptune [Game Asset], preferably with Trident and snake coiling around his lower half. Anyone

have anything similar to that? Doesn't have to have the snake.

Are you talking about a game asset or an actual statue? If the latter, this probably belongs in off-topic.

Without knowing you, if you have one of the Ancient Gods statues at home that you can stand near roughly the same height - you're evil.

 

Seriously though you can buy a cheap Chinese copy off of Aliexpress or some such thing. But the shipping costs for the weight...

 

Or if you have any museums nearby take a Wax made copy of it if you can find one. Looks just like the real thing, but not sure if they made wax figures out of sculptures.

Basically, isn't it easier to go to/travel to wherever (probably museum) there is a copy of that statue and make photos off of it?

I mean AI sized model for the game. I wanted a Neptune (man pointing out to sea holding a Trident with a snake coiled around his legs and hips). Definitely

don't want the real thing lol It's for my level.

Definitely excuse to go for a museum than! Or rent from some art collectors. Search for announcements wherever you live. They usually gather old chairs, clocks and things like that. Might have the statue too.

This is completely new to me. I know nothing about this, or making models. How do I use these scan .obj files?

Its not that that easy, actually. You import it to blender and from there you can resize it and, most importantly, duplicate it so you can decimate to a reasonable tris count. That will be the model you will be exporting in game. By keeping the high poly copy in blender, you can use that to "bake" a detailed normal map. I havent had much luck with this process, as 3d scans and decimating in general do not really create very good meshes, and the normal maps and vertex smoothing that result from it are not perfect.

 

Seen anything you liked? I might be able to take a look for you.

There isn't anything like Neptune there. What I wanted was a neptunian statue pointing out to sea. The place I'm working on is very decrepid, so I think since I can't find

that, maybe this might suit? This isn't from that site though. Failing that, I guess the other one would do, though it doesn't have the same feel. I've been searching for

a model of a neptune statue, but knowing zero about modelling, I have no idea what I can use and what I can't. lol

At 200K, you'll never get this into TDM in a way that won't affect performance unless it's in a closet where that's the only thing in the scene.

That's why I recommend looking into MeshLab, because you stand a chance of performing decimation (which is much better than anything Blender can do) and bring it down to a reasonable polycount for real-time rendering, then bake all the details back into it from the original high-poly mesh.

As I said, I know nothing about models. I only know how to use them. I guess this is why our statue models are such low poly.

I don't really mind on the poly count, it's cause the level I'm working on is a fishing village, and it would really benefit from

an icon of the sea in the main part of the town.

The unprocessed scale model of my barque ship comes in at 120k tris currently and runs fine with a shadowcasting light casting the silhouette in all its details on the wall behind. FPS-wise you notice it's there, but a plain room with this ship casting 1 shadow gives me the same FPS as a normal TDM scene. I'm using a generic, newer pc with integrated graphics.

 

the level I'm working on is a fishing village, and it would really benefit from an icon of the sea in the main part of the town.

This called back to mind this particular scene from a game I liked quite much. Here you are in the old harbour of Nostria.

I can only recommend this step-by-step guide to making a tea cup, which is what allowed me to get a foothold in Blender. Especially if you're interested in making use of special custom assets unique to your mission, it'd very much pay off to have some basic modelling literacy.

If you are still thinking about this, you could make a stone block and apply a normal mapped or even better parallax occlusion mapped image of a neptune into it, it will not look has good has a real 3D statue but at least you will have some kind of "sculpture" of him there. It has the potential to look bad tho if the normal map is not of suficient quality.

 

Something like this:

      Anyone here played Inscryption? At first, I was like "no, I am not going to play a stupid card game", but this game is so much more than that. It is so meta, full of 4th wall breaks, and feels so damn spooky and weird because of it. Absolutely recommended, if you can stand the visuals. I recommend not reading up too much on it, as that could easily spoil half the incredible surprises. Just know that what you see in the beginning is by far not everything.

      Tried to make a tdm advertisement commentpost at one of civvie11 youtube videos about T2. Post got marked as spam. His problem (to not discover TDM for himself),..not my problem.
      But some help of some fellow TDM yt-videocomment posters would be nice. To ask him and others, to play TDM. To get more players/creators.

      Currently Profile Information has 3 fields, these are shown in forum posts under your avatar:

      2. Location
      3. Interests
      I think that it could be useful to have an extra field called "Operating system" (under location). It can be useful for tech support and to see what people use.
      Alternatively it could be a more general term, like PC system, so that you can for example state that you use an AMD gpu.
