    There comes a moment when you have to make the harsh decision to stop iterating and just release something. At first endless iteration seems like a virtue and a sign of refined taste, but then you end up actually NEVER arriving to the point of release, always adding more tasks to do, because it's ALWAYS a work in progress, it ALWAYS can be better, oh you just want to add one more dog animation because it would make the village seem more alive or whatever and then it just will never end.

    IMO.

    Yep, that is very much true, but keep in mind I just do this for fun, not to sell it. ;) Also, what else am I gonna do if I am in the mood to work on something while I have to wait for other stuff? As said, these are crucial animations for the basic "hero" critter, so... ;)

    Amazing looking (and sounding) stuff, SS; can't wait to play the demo. Only thing I don't like is the full party control, but I'm really looking forward to soloing my way through thick-ass snowstorms and knee-high water environments. :salute:

    As my signature says, I am currently not working on the game. Sorry bros. :/ There will also be some more delays I think, since the departure of the FOnline:2238 server and the lack of people showing up in the 3d board there (which I need for my game as well)

    You know that you just can PM me whenever you need something, as been told numerous times. :P

    Anyway, I've been itching to do something for the game and did some modelling work again. I also tried out a different render technique, the lighting is a lot smoother now.

    Also, a friend is working on some portrait art for the characters and makes it so that they can be layered, meaning it's easy to customize an existing face with details, skin colour etc etc.

    Thank you. :) I actually started this session because I've read tutorials on how to improve area lighting and make it look smoother etc. I also wanted to learn how to do real light beams in the software I use, but still to no prevail. :(

    Thank you, but it really was just a test render. Ofcourse the assets are there and done, but in the actual maps the objects won't be so dense that you can only actually walk 1/4 of the map you see. I like eye candy ofcourse, but I also want the player to be able to explore the map. :) As said, I am doing a lot of test renders/scenes lately to just practise texturing and lighting.
    Here is a failed test to do "light rays" and some basic modelling for a snake. (the Vault Dweller is obviously shopped in)

    If anyone has any experience with Vue pioneer and how to do light beams/rays, please drop me a PM. :)

    Fumbled around with some generic desert scrubs/bushes/plants and tiles to help out the former FOnline:2238 team.

    [​IMG]

    I took the screenshot during a bad "time" in the mapper (you can adjust the time of the day) but I like the variation of plants you can place as scenery objects. There is also a rock with custom textures on the left and the tree. The dunes on the tiles are handpainted with photoshop.
