Re: Generator
WOW....
awesome model, especially getting all details in and making it in about 2000 tris :o.

Re: Generator
Thanks, round objects are especially complicated.
Giving an rounded object 2 or 4 more section can give you 200 more Polys in the end if you don't take care.

On my earlier models i usually combined the parts with boolean unifiy because i like a closed mesh without intersecting polygons.
But for our mod this isn't really necessary and just adding the parts toegether keeps the count low.

Re: Generator
Shouldn't be too difficult to texture, since it's mostly just different shades of metal. Smile

Re: Generator
Hehe, this one was actually fun to map.  Big Grin

I've tried to take advantage of the symmetry, so that as much polys as possible could use the same uv-space.

The texture is also much less distorted than in my earlier works.
Nearly all squares of the checkerboard are still squares and not something with more corners than the actual model . Smile

Very true...I face a similar problem with large storage tanks 1 as the square bounding take up as many sections as the large cylinders do..but as the main model is about the cylinders, can't go low poly on that Smile

In Sketchup there is a similar tool: intersect, which intersects the selected geometry and one can delete the unwanted geometry. Would UV mapping get difficult when boolean unify/intersect is not done?.

Re: Generator
actually it will be more difficult, when it's done Wink

Re: Generator
Just found this between my files. Seems i started texturing and never uploaded the results.
I'm not satisfied with the color, but that depends on the illumination.

Any suggestions on how to improve on this?

Re: Generator
well there are plenty of ways to improve it. The best is to create texture with a lot of small details on it. Like metal plates, so it will look more bulky and technological.

However this all depends on how we can draw texturers Wink And so far we lack the one, who can create such textures.
