my attempt to re-create OTA Urban stuff..

Post by DOT » Tue Sep 22, 2009 2:52 pm

At the moment i got one nearly done .. more Screenshots and Models will come soon..


http://img5.imagebanana.com/view/eztm9k ... gedons.JPG Some Tower.

Do you want more? here you get more,

http://img5.imagebanana.com/view/36azyvg5/urban.JPG some Building (Penthouse?) and some other Tower.. (future Acid Rain protection?).

The Tower is Work In progress so it doesn't really looks that great because it is difficulty to recreate it..

I've been looking at those renders again and I think 3DMEditor 2 ambient occlusion calculator could give great results on such models :wink:

Sounds familiar, unfortunately time is always limited.

Maybe you can continue later or you can send me what you have done so I can put it on the website/SVN and maybe someone will be willing to continue.

Indeed, we can't rely on OTA IP that's the reason why we're making this free set of resources :).

And soon we'll have an even better ambient occlusion map algorithm :P as I am rewriting it to use the power of the GPU instead of doing raytracing on the CPU. Performance boost is HUGE.

Spam fest? :D



by the way i am juist goot at modelling stuff because Wings 3D isnt that hard too learn like Blender

of course Blender is at some point better

but in my option Wings 3D is enough to make models for TA3D and so on..

New algorythm is already implemented in 3DMeditor. Also someone has made a Gasbag model :P Yay!

I made a few gasbag models yesterday with wings3d. I like its UV mapping tools, it's easy to avoid too much distortion.

Blender is a more complete tool but TA3D requires simple models (you don't imagine having billion triangles in a model) to run at descent frame rates so I don't think Blender is a better choice than Wings3D for our 3D models needs (but it can be used to produce nice images like the ones used by the modern theme).

PS: I made a few screen shots of those gasbags :) : http://www.ta3d.org/show-en.php?i=113

If you head over to this site you can find all the textures you need for models like this.

http://www.filterforge.com/filters/ if you click by category it makes things easier, and there's thousands of good stuff there. All tile able.

Are you sure they are PD or any other GNU license friendly?

the Program is not Free so i doubt that those Textures are GNU etc friendly or whatever TA3D got for an license
and i need the Program to get the textures.. no?

Bump:

I can now texture stuff!

due to being busy with Other projects for spring i have not much time for that Urban recreation set (sadly that urban/snow themed stuff is getting often short on common RTS games)

Proof:

Image

maybe tommorow i have time to texture one
and somehow setting it all up

Sorry I thought some parts of the texture were still blank because of the colors.

It's just the Lazy adjustment of the UV-Coords and the Lights effect of course :D

Well, did i mentioned that i am back on work on summer holiday? No? Well then so do i now then, yes i know its a pain to wait that long but i dont got other choices :(

and finally i learned to do some cheap textures on it... with uv-mapping! (auto for the win)

Until there is a new map format to play with, Urban is a lost cause on perspective mode in TA3D
