Buildings...

I've been working on some buildings today, I need them for another animation project, so I thought I better finally get around to making them.

Anyway, the first attempt, more of a test than anything, is a potential factory. I think I've got the right array of parts, they just need to be more simple, or better planned. Next one will be better.

Here's the preview;

It looks pretty, but it's getting close to 3500 triangles here, so I'd like to see how far I can cut that down. Probably I can cut it in half with some better planning....

The point is that the work flow for buildings is now at least partly in place so future building models will be very quick to make.

I want to make sure that each object is made up of individual blocks, each of which is a closed convex hull. That way you won't need to make new collision boxes, you can just duplicate and separate the original shapes.

Using the list on the "locations list" on this site, I've sketched all the objects I might need. I've got some extra ones too, to makes some apartment buildings and platforms.

I could make some raised roads too, but I don't know if they can be implemented.

a quick preview of the nearly completed modular buildings project. should give you some high quality buildings to create a military base of any kind. Also going to include some worker housing later and of course the main factory template...
