(Sword)New Texturing Style
2 Attachment(s)
I have been messing around with blender and gimp a lot lately. I found out I could export the UV layout of my models, which I figured I could use this in gimp to do my texturing instead of doing it all in blender. Well, it worked, and I believe i'll start doing all my objects like this. It allows a more crisp texture and allows more freedom to edit the texture. So here is a new sword I modeled using a few new techniques I found out about.

Not bad. Could use some optimization, though. 1.2 megs is kind if high for a single model.

[B][FONT=Courier New]There wasn't much wrong with this model. I didn't want to give it a 100, because it just didn't feel that easy to rotate and manipulate. It's very good, but it just quite wasn't there. [/FONT][/B]

A sword needs subparts? I don't think so. By the way, you gettin' to this stage yet?

If you mean to the game engine and physics, sadly no. I only get to spend a few minutes here and there since I work full time and normally lots of over time on top of that, I rarely get to spend the time on my hobbies

EDIT: and Mr. K, Since you are the model connoisseur, have you thought about making tutorials on how to increase model quality in a well structured and well thought out written or documented series?

Mr Kidnapper 02-16-2012 10:12 AM

In terms of modeling there are thousands of tutorials for this out there on the interwebs somewhere. If you mean specifically to suit Alice, then I haven't but I could.
Problem is, if it's teaching how to make objects I can only do it in 3ds Max, Maya, and Hexagon.

How about to optimize models for the use of Alice? Such as creating proper origins, converting/creating "good" (opinionated of course) looking low poly models, splicing(splitting, parenting etc..) a model to make for easier use in Alice in general?

Mr Kidnapper 02-16-2012 11:04 AM

Oh, well sure then.

You guys made a good point. What was I thinking. I edited my review. Now everyone is happy.
