  • I like the shape of those engines but it does look kinda weird, like how they are attached to the wing, maybe extend the wings on the outside of the engines?
  • I decided to stop being lazy, so here's a textured rock prop with a small normal map problem and a LOD version. 1024 polys, 2048 diffuse & normal for the hp version 256 polys, 512 diffuse & normal for the LOD version [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/eEayK.jpg[/thumb] [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/eqGyQ.jpg[/thumb] [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/Ee0aP.jpg[/thumb] [thumb]http://i.imgur.com/ycSGu.jpg[/thumb]

( I know you overlayed with the grey texture) You should see if you can go over it with black. I dunno, may be just me.

  • I couldn't find a question megathread, so I'm just requesting information here. Where can I find a decent tutorial on working with bones in Source? I have no idea what I need to put in the QCs and all the searches I do pull up the basics on exporting to Source rather than how I'm supposed to work with bones.

Another way could be checking Valve's decompiled models in your steam/username/sourcesdk_content/ folder.

If you have any more info, I'd be happy to help.

  • When I export an object so I can sculpt it a little, is there a way to get it back into Max for baking without having a crazy amount of polys slowing down my machine, basically looking for a way to control the iterations like turbosmooth so I can keep working.
  • Avatar of Fewes
  • Not sure what you're looking for. If you want to bake it I'm assuming you want final quality, but if you want to keep working on it in Max after doing detailed sculpting that's going to be hard. If you've finished sculpting and want to bring it into Max (and if you're using Zbrush) there's Decimation Master which will do some crazy optimization while still retaining high quality normals. You can also export individual subd levels from Zbrush, rework them in Max, bring them back into Zbrush and transfer the sculpt details IIRC, though I've never done this myself so I have no clue as to how well it works.
