I'd love to see some bits and bobs lying on the deck and on the sides, and is there going to be a railing along the sides at the back there?

But no railing there. :) [editline]11th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Red Katana;35517177]What material is that? looks super sexy.[/QUOTE] [url]http://wiki.polycount.com/Model%20Presentation[/url]
  • Picked this up again. Looking forward to texturing the low poly but christ high poly modeling is a chore sometimes. [IMG]http://i30.photobucket.com/albums/c327/link_master_92/sp12-1.jpg[/IMG]
  • Are you going to test your texturing from that racer445 link, fewes? [editline]11th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Juniez;35520021][img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1157653/hk1911.png[/img][/QUOTE] Where's the butter?
  • Low poly progress, taking ages on this because I'm home from Uni and spending time with friends at the moment. I'm doing a pass to remove the control edges and other stuff at the moment, I'll do another to remove/give detail depending on how far it is from the player. Oh, and float your rails kids, good way to save polys. [img]http://img685.imageshack.us/img685/9558/hurrs.jpg[/img]
  • [QUOTE=A big fat ass;35530601]Are you going to test your texturing from that racer445 link, fewes? [/QUOTE] Some, yeah. I'm mostly excited because I'll get to use my noise/dirt/scratch library I've been creating.

  • Some progress but I sadly lack the time to do any more detailing. Does anyone have any tips on how I would go on with the baking? Explode the mesh to separate bits and make the lowpolies separately and then put it back together? [img]http://www.leet.cc/airtug_004.png[/img]
  • Working on a Hunter Chopper skin.

[img]http://www.leet.cc/airtug_004.png[/img][/QUOTE] I like to make the lowpoly when it's together, then you can see which faces can be removed and stuff, as for baking it's best to seperate the model first because then you can clearly see each area. Make a save when it's together and when it's seperated, then you can jump between the two states and save loads of time or go back easily and tweak the bake.

  • yeah it's pretty sweet, I've used that to change the transparency of a mesh's texture (like when I'm making a low poly on top of the high poly), works like maya's Xray vision but with controllable transparency.

  • For a game someone suggested to make a toy mouse: [img_thumb]http://localhostr.com/files/x5z6lMT/capture.png[/img_thumb] It didn't seem dead enough so I went another step forward: [img_thumb]http://localhostr.com/files/RKpUiyk/DeadMouse.PNG[/img_thumb] I'm happy with them as my second and third completed model. I've just got to continue upping the detail I guess.

  • [QUOTE=~ZOMG;35560394]The smoothing could use some work, but that looks great.[/QUOTE] Hah yeah. Another friend just pointed that out to me and I had no idea I could even do that. Now I can have far less vertices and it look smoother! [img_thumb]http://localhostr.com/files/km8Fz26/capture.png[/img_thumb] The sad thing is how much one push of a button can fix that and I missed it. Also was able to add more detail. Give it an actual hole for the nose and make the spine more jagged.
  • Made futher progress with the Hunter Chopper today. Still got a lot of work to do, but I feel it is coming along nicely.

  • You know, I never really thought about how fucking awesome the Combine helicopter design is before. Skin looks good, although I really think you should redo the rotors as well.
  • [QUOTE=fewes;35561848]You know, I never really thought about how fucking awesome the Combine helicopter design is before. Skin looks good, although I really think you should redo the rotors as well.[/QUOTE] Can't do anything about the rotars. Sorry. :( The skin is designed to look like that on the rotars. However, I do have this model: [url]http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=115210[/url] The rotar blades on it are visable and not just blurred. I could reskin those rotar blades, and upload both the materails on the models. Credits would have to go to the person who made the model.
