Art Dev. Task tracking


Recommended Posts

Last updated 08/03/2018

This thread is to keep track of the Art tasks that needs to be done and who is working on which one. Keep it clean, post only when you are going to start a task and when it has been finished and approved or commited by someone of the team.
- Do not post suggestions. Create a new topic or use any suggestion thread.
- Do not post Wips. Create a ===[TASK]=== thread on the Art forum for this matter.
- Do not post references. Use the relevant task thread.
- LEGAL WAIVER: Please read this before contributing and abide by it.

*We can't assure that your models will be used for the final game, and we n 're also looking for a certain quality level, don't get upset if your model doesn't make it into the game, practice is the best way to improve.

Tips & requirements of the engine:

- Approx triangle count for buildings: small 2k-5k, mid 4k-6k, big 6k-8k, wonders 8k-12k.
- The engine uses .DAE (Collada) format for models and animations.
- The engine does not render double-faced polys, so if you want a polygon with both faces rendered, you need to duplicate it and flip the normals.
- The engine does not tile the textures like blender does, so when UV mapping, keep the UV islands within the texture space.
- We use two UV coordinates, one with overlapping UVs for diffuse, normal/parallax and specularity and another non-overlapping for AO maps.

- Building models need to extend below the ground (-Z axis) because it can be visible when the building is constructed in uneven terrain.
- To get the correct scale it is very useful to import a building from the game into blender as a reference.

        You're referring to the fact that units sometimes glide at the very end of their movement? If so yes it's a bug, and it's fixed/it will be fixed in my ongoing UnitMotion rewrite which will land whenev

        Can I have the model of the elephant and soldiers?

        You can take the task that you want. However, there's no elephant model needed, just the turret model for the elphant and its texture. There's also no soldiers needed to model, just their texures.

        Hi, I was going through the list of task but I notice that some of the buildings that are supposed to be waiting for modeling are already model o are already been taken. Do you have a list of task more updated? Or if you give me a task I am fine with it.

        Thank you

        Can someone update it ?

        About the Gaul rotatory mill, why is it briton in the editor, and what do you see instead ? The model look really fine, and i wasn't able to find references for it.

        Updated. The rotatory mill model is really old, and that structure is not ideal, the only reason that it has no roof is to show the animals I think. Something similar but looking better would do the trick.
