Hi guys long time no see, this is teamhalo - known on the store as Valuable Assets

I've recently acquired equipment that will let me produce basic models and media for Game Guru.
Its been about 5 years since I been fluent in developing content for the store, but I will try my best.






I need some feedback on things you would like me to create, its been a long long time since I've made models. Right now I'm building a bunch of derelict buildings for scenery. I'll post updates in this thread. Thanks!

Hello and Welcome back.... Looking forward to the new models.

Derelict buildings are great.

For ideas maybe some clutter objects, old bins, rubbish piles, old bits of wall etc, etc, maybe also have a few buildings enterable too.

Definite purchase from me when they are done.

Welcome back mate. Not much has changed really when it comes to static models apart from the addition of PBR, I haven't got access to a link ATM, but if you go to the GG community on steam and look in the guides section you will find a guide on the PBR naming conventions that I wrote when it was implemented

@TeamHalo

Couple of ideas, hope you don't mind.

*The blue awning on the bottom 2 pics looks a little "clean" for a derelict.
*Maybe have some buildings without the graffiti, but just dirty and grimy only.

Looking forward to some more screens.....

@Tarkus1971 it is great to see you old friend thanks for commenting on my thread and I very much welcome your suggestions!!

also @Tarkus1971 great suggestion for the texture! I plan on improving it soon. And good idea - I will produce multiple texture variations for each building, some without grafitti, some with, etc. Stay tuned

@3com thank you!!

@Belidos thanks so much!! What is PBR? Is it a new tech for Game Guru? I noticed in my tests this weekend that the graphics look so good! It actually puts my machine quite to work when I max everything out. I will search for your guide.

@Tarkus1971 here is another screen; I will definitely dirty up the blue awning.

PBR is Physically Based Rendering, instead of the basic defuse, normal, specular, and illumination, you can now use color, metalness, gloss (it's actually roughness named gloss in GG), normal, detail, and illumination (can also be called emission) for more detail.

@Belidos do you know of any software that can be used to generate these maps? Is it fairly easy to implement in the entities' .FPE file? Thanks

More updates! Here is another building I made today. Slightly larger.




I must say Lee has been hard at work on the engine because the rendering in game looks fantastic! I can tell that Game Guru has improved a lot since I've last been active.

Here are ingame shots with the new building:




And lastly @Tarkus1971 I improved the canvas awning per your suggestion, see below:


Thanks for the suggestions I appreciate them! Once I finish more buildings I will get started on those.

Teamhalo , welcome back , and nice to meet you.

if you are finished with your current buildings then , If i may suggest something, .... how about making some enterable every day houses something like this.

would rely be nice to have some extra Valuable Assets in the form of houses

PBR textures can be made in multitude of programs, from simple paint programs to complicated 3D model painting programs like substance painter, quixel, or armour paint. It depends on how much you're willing to spend or learn. Even blender can bake PBR textures, you just need to learn to use nodes.

They're quite simple really, mist of them are simple gray scale images like specular maps, for example a metalness map is a gray scale map where areas that are pure white are fully metalic and areas that are full black are completely non-metalic, with the grays in-between being varying degrees at metalness.

@PCS nice to meet you too!! Great suggestions. I may have some time to build a house, those can be tricky.

@Belidos thanks this is really good to know! I use photoshop so I will have a go at creating some of these manually. Really interesting stuff!

@Tarkus1971 thanks Tarkus!! I may or may not do enterable buildings this time around I did so many of them with my older packs haha

Here is a new large scale industrial building. You can see it dwarfs in size the buildings I have made so far!! This guy is HUGE



Here you can see the scale of the model in comparison:


Renders:




I've since added doors to this one that is not shown on the screenshots. Thanks for all the feedback guys!!

@Tarkus1971 yes yes I promise for you i will do some enterable buildings. Those are a ton of fun, they take a long amount of time to make - once I have a dozen or so unique 'scenery buildings' I will definitely put together some enterable structures
I think i will start with single-story buildings for enterable ones. In due time

@JC LEON Thanks so much!! I greatly appreciate your support, and I'm so happy you are satisfied with my previous model packs. Enterable buildings are coming


New updates today!! I here is an apartment building. There are three versions: short, medium, and tall.







And here is the render for this one:

New Update

Today's model I hope you like


Render:


Another variation:


And a corner piece:


And the render:


I had a fun idea. Since many would like to see enterable buildings, once I finish maybe ten or twelve of these scenery buildings, it would be an interesting challenge to "convert" them into enterable versions, so that you have the option in your levels to explore them, OR, just as scenery! It would be a very fun challenge since the texture maps were not designed with enterable in mind but I will give it a go

Yes, I can tell you! Do you want to know what the Store does NOT have?
It does not have much clean, modern sci-fi (or not sci-fi) items. Sure there are
a few hallways, corridors and a handful of random clean and tidy things,
but derelict is so 80's/90's and Zombie-vill is also so last generation.

A new generation is upon us. A new engine is in front of us, and I would
hope that all things shooting zombies in grungy apocalyptic alleys is going
behind us. IMHO!

Also ahead; you might want to chat with some dedicated scripters. I find that
so often objects in the store could really use some re-orienting, some finesse
related to scripting dynamics that would make them much more Valuable Assets!
I can't get into the details here, but some of the "tricks" modelers use in order
to supposedly make them more easy to insert (like default raising them above
Zero (0)) Y, removing textures on one side, and creating a rotation point far away
from the object-- those sort of things, makes scripting them impossible.

Clean and tidy-- modern and sci-fi-- game ready, I can't find too much. Those who have
put that out-- Thanks!

Thought I'd just drop a note to help out in this regard.

Gubby, I get where you're coming from, placing the origin at the center of mass can be useful for scripting, however it depends on the object, a ball or a wheel, yes definitely, but a house or building? Absolutely no need, and will make placement nightmare.

@Tarkus1971 Thank you! I have attached a gift for you and everyone to the bottom of this post.

@GubbyBlips I appreciate your comments. You know it's funny, I kinda have a genre that I'm really only good at modeling: dirty apocalyptic scenery haha. For the last ten years my models are all the same style. I think it's just that I'm only good at this style. Attempting to do sci-fi I've tried and my models do not come out good sadly. Anyways your feedback is appreciated thank you!

@Belidos yes I agree, placement for buildings I try to keep center that way it is easiest for the user. For a custom use case as described above the scripter could simply edit the meshes placement in a 3d modeling program.

NEW UPDATES

I have a new building



And the render:




AND I wanted to share a gift to you all for the support you have given me. I was, fortunately, able to recover ALL of my entitybank files from 2014-2016 from my old computer!! Thankfully it is not lost. Unfortunately, my massive repository of textures that I used to use on my old external hard drive is still missing. Starting over with all new textures can be challenging.

However! I have saved so many old prototypes I had created back then, they are simply sitting here without use, not good enough for me to spend the time selling on the store so this one Large Brick Wall and Gate I am attaching to this post It was originally planned for Guru Buildings volume 3 but it was scrapped due to it's not fitting well with the theme of the pack. Enjoy this gift for all your creations!

It is four entity pieces kit to build a brick wall. An open and closed version of the gate are included.




Enjoy! I'll share more stuff soon too

EDIT2: Working now

@JC LEON Thank you for the link!! I will jump on that soon.

@Tarkus Thanks so much! I appreciate your support.

New Update

Here is a simple one for today, this one will lend itself to texture variations quite easily:


And the render:


Just one more building to go and I will start making some of these enterable. I am very excited to make these enterable!

Another side note: I honestly forgot how to prepare media for the store. Does everything have to be PBR now to get approved? Or can we still submit with just _D, _N, and _S?
Is it still a .zip file with "
entitybank \
.....................\ entity.fpe
.....................\ entity.bmp
.....................\ entity.x
.....................\ entity_texture_d.dds
.....................\ entity_texture_n.dds

@Tarkus and @Belidos thank you so much! That is good to know. Right now, I have no way to generate additional maps so for now, I've been strickly working with diffuse/color maps. Hopefully, soon I will have a working program that can help me generate these.


The next steps for this pack, I have much to do still under the hood.

1. Each entity needs a .bmp screenshot created

2. Each model needs to be properly scaled to fit Guru Doors, my old door pack. Currently, my scale is off in my 3D program so these 14 models will need to be re-exported

3. I need proper texture maps generated. Right now I have just a _D. I would love to get PBR working, however I think it would be best to do D, S, N, maps for now and include at a later date downloadable PBR materials for the sake of this pack.

4. Materials, screenshots, descriptions, .zip files, store icons, all need to be generated for each entity for placement on the store - I may start on this next week to break it up, as I anticipate there be numerous entities in this pack once you factor in texture variation.

5. I would love to create texture variations for each building model. Assuming 10 build models, 2 texture variations each brings the model count to 20, counting symmetry variations, 3 per model, we're now at 60, now assume each has an enterable version, that's another 30, nearly 100 models for just buildings. I am going to be busy!

Today I have a new, presumably final building for scenery before I started converting them to enterable.


And the render



Thanks for sticking with me so far! I hope to share more updates soon, I may or may not have one tomorrow so if not I will see you next week!

Yup, i agree with Tarkus, looks fab. Only thing i would have done a little different is the grunge on the top edge of the walls, it's a little contrasting and uniform, a little more blending and maybe more streaking would look better, but overall still the high standard i've always found your work to be.

Great stuff as always. If you can keep the file names short and folder names short it will export easier to standalone.

Here is a free program that can assist you in generating PBR maps.
http://www.boundingboxsoftware.com/materialize/getkey.php

GG specific info for maps.

Metalness - black is dialectric, White is metal

Gloss - Black is shiney, white is rough. We use roughness map and call it gloss. Use roughness colors.

Specular - Mostly grey scale except for metalic objects, then the reflectence color of the metal is used for the specular color. Not used in PBR.

Roughness - Black is Rough, White is shiny. We use this map and call it gloss.

Displacement - White is height, black is lows

Normal direction +X -Y +Z

Quote: "
--- #define RealisticVsCool (0.60) ---
Allows you to control some of the PBR light and light extractions from the environment , if you want it to look more like UE try to set it around 0.90 , if you want a Unity PBR look try to set it around 0.40. I made it like this , as i expect people will have different expectations for PBR.

--- #define AmountExtractLight (0.50) ---
This allow you to control the extraction of light , this is actually the sun from your skybox that you see on your car , so what you see is light extraction. to lower the intensity of the sun you can just lower this value.

Forgot to move those to settings.fx , so currently there are inside "apbr_core.fx"."

Axis direction in GG
Pos y - up
Neg Y - Down
Pos X - Right
Neg X - Left
Pos z - Forward
Neg Z - Back

Many cups of coffee but also many hours to enjoy modeling, and new things to discover, I think it is a good plan.

@Tarkus thanks so much for your comments!

@Belidos A very fair crituque! I respect your opinions and I assure you this feedback will be addressed in a furthur texture variation for this model in particular, thank you as always for your beneficial comment

@Pirate Myke good to see you old friend I greatly appreciate your comment here, this is very helpful and the program referal will be used ! Great stuff to know, your PBR comments and Belidos' steam tutorial will be used to assist my PBR texture generation.

@3com so true!! Many coffees and water (mainly water LOL go into these models! ) I appreciate your feedback and comments, thank you


NEW UPDATE

Today I bring the first building, as an enterable structure. Door frames fit all doors provided in my old Guru Doors model pack.





More to come soon!!!

New update

The second building now has an enterable version


Here is a quick scene I put together with some GG stock media and older VA assets.
I bumped up the camera FOV to capture this image:

NEW UPDATE AND BAD NEWS, PLUS FREE THING!

Todays progress on converting the 4th building to an enterbable unfortunately ended in a tradegy. As I was UVW Unwraping the object, the file became corrupted and I did not save So the model was not able to be completed. Here are the screenshots of the building, which I have attached here for you all to have. All that is wrong with it is a few faces were not unwrapped. If you can finish the unwrap job you will have a working building

All in all I had a lot planned for this building, I was going to add multiple floors and stairs but losing the file has been a huge bummer. Oh well!

Shame about the loss of that buildings interior, any ETA on the pack and price... can't wait to get re-started on my project "Urban Histories" and these buildings will fit in very, very nicely.

@Tarkus thank you! Pack is coming soon. so much to do at this time Slowly I will add these to the store one by one. I have 10 building finished, 3 enterable versions, hopefully 6-7 more enterable. Then texture variations. I will hope its complete and released by July. Price will be either $19.99 or $24.99, depends how much material I end up producing for it to complement the buildings. I want to give this pack my all!

@everyone - please if anyone is a modeler, you have my FULL permission to share the fixed entity if you go an fix the UVW map on the building Please someone feel free to share it here so other non-modelers can use the building


@granada thank you sir! your comment is appreciated
