Here's a WiP of the first asteroid model for LPS. (click to enlarge)

High poly model has been created in 3dsmax via 3 displacement maps out of a sperified cube. I used Poly Cruncher 9 to get a decent low poly model and made some manual adjustments afterwards. UV unwrapping as well as smoothing groups / hard eges were done with Blender. Normal map baked in mudbox...

I was wondering if you where still  working on those awesome mesh ?

I would like this kind on mesh in a CTF map which I saw a concept on devianArt so I thought I may ask if you plan to release them ?

BTW, I add your new concrete barrier in my Mégane map & I must say it's top quality work m8 ! :D

zahnrad05.gif*thinking*

SQRT(16) + 128... + asteroids + concept... *8 - 256... devided by 4... + deviantART... =... nah, impossible... or yes?? _suspect_.gif

Does it have anything to do with what I uploaded when I came back from my snowboarding trip?

Just curious. lol

LOL

And where did you found those "smilies" !!!!!!! :p

Nope bro :p

In fact, it's a pic I've saw while browsing one of my favorites members that I just didn't notice before, dunno why I just overlooked the pic & I think it could be an awesome CTF map. It could be done with the stock rock meshes but Malk meshes are much better looking hihi :D

I'll try to find it once more lol

 Hi, still have it on my hd. The normal map is a bit messy and it's not yet textured but its there. Also the workflow for such asteroids relatively fast.

 

Steve, perhaps you need another version of the concrete barrier? I was going to make one without the bullet holes and one without any damage at all - just for more variation.

So, if it's not to much work left for ya & you have the time, it will be very helpful in the upcoming months :)

For the barrier, variation is always welcomed :D But the way I place them, it doesn't look repetitive at least. Ho and very good job on the UV's too :D

Since you will end up with 3 models, a concrete barrier pack would be awesome !?

The models itself won't be too much work but I don't have a suitable texture for now... perhaps anyone of you guys will find something that might fit. smile

Here's the blog post for the updated concrete barrier model: http://oliverm-h.blogspot.de/2012/04/update-free-3d-model-concrete-barrier.html

Here's a new small tut: http://oliverm-h.blogspot.de/2012/06/distance-based-texture-blending-ue3udk.html

It describes a method to get rid of repetitive patterns of tileable textures like on terrains/landscapes. As usually UT3 receives a special treatment :p

Very complex & clever method !

Will advertise your new tut asap & add it to the UDK/UT3 tut list. Really well made & THX for sharing :)

New mini tut available: http://oliverm-h.blogspot.de/2012/09/how-to-create-self-shadowing-materials.html
It shows an easy way to add self shadows to materials. The setup is quite simple and should work with all versions of UE3.

superb mate, what size is this? (not sure if it s a bot that i see standing on one of the rocks....lol....might be one of my old eyes trap though)
u really succeded to give a nice feeling of "survivance" to thoses "stones"...all thoses impacts/craterias do their job, i wish i had something like that under the hands when ve ve build phobos moon remake

did u try to apply this texture on UT3 stock cliffs?
good job

Yupp, I added the bots for size comparison, and that cube in the middle measures 256³ UU.

The texture is model specific, so it won't work with anything else.

Awesome mesh Malk :D

I'm curious to see them with the proper material !

If you release them, I can make a good looking space map with those meshes & the previous rocks you release hihi :)

Damn !

Sorry, since the mesh color is greyish + based on the previous pics in Blender, I didn't thought that a material was applied ! But yep, the material is really detailed, well done :D

Would you mind to make a more brownish material with a bit less details, something like the UDK stock rock meshes ?

I would love to use them in another natural type map :o

hey Malk.....imo if u can it would "complete" the pack to add a big sized sphere and semi-sphere with this kind of texturing (craters and co)
it could be very handy for asteroid themed maps....just an idea

....and the sphere for same functions but with animation options (rotation on itself or around a planet)

Here's a new tutorial, Texture Atlases for tileable textures without seams: http://oliverm-h.blogspot.de/2013/04/how-to-create-ue3udk-texture-atlases.html

Unfourtanetely you need HLSL (custom nodes) to make all seams go away, so it's probably not that useful for the UT3 guys...

I agree it's somewhat technical.
If you ever tried to create a huge terrain whose material(s) should have had more than 12 texture samples (at least LPS should know :)) you'll find this is a nice way to bypass the limit.

Here's a new quick tutorial about saving texture memory/samples Normal Maps: Replacing The Blue Channel

I haven't tried this for UT3 yet but it should be feasible somehow.

Lol this is cool way of thinking, i have used a normal for noise before and done many other things, but never thought of the benefits until the laid them out clearly - :)
Thanks for this clear thought process.

2 new tutorials...

The first one is specifically for UDK:
Foliage Tool Lightmaps


Second one does work for UT3 as well and describes a different/better method of parallax / bumpoffset mapping:
Iterative Parallax Mapping
