#OneHourGameDev has started, it’s a very nice concept started which we joined last year, well, we won’t be worse this year, just look at me! My face and eyebrows have been updated by way of substance!
Isn’t technology wonderful?
J I threw the first days of this week into the last post, so if you want some Ambrosia, check it out!
For me the most important thing about this recap is December 1st, this means the start of the one hour game development initiative and while one hour doesn’t sound like a lot, it is if you count it as one additional hour of game dev!
That’s how I’ve chosen to interpret it and this one hour I’m spending on things which will be easy to show off and hopefully started and finished within a single hour!
First up a window substance, I’m thinking it’s probably too photo-realistic for Eco but some minor tweaking should fix that, just the albedo with a normal map, alpha and no roughness should work well!
Second is this roof tile substance loosely based upon this tutorial, because, learning from your seniors is the way to go!
Another few hours of work on the roof tiles, most of them spent on trying to make the sbsar work inside of Unity and while the substance can’t be used currently (it looks horrid despite the CPU engine looking good in Substance Designer), I’m still very happy with the ease of bitmap export. I’ve left a post on Allegorithmic’s forum but if you know why, please leave a message on Facebook!
Here’s the old texture as compared to my final substance, it will be viewed from the ground so I think this will be more than good enough!
I’ve also finally found the Gradient (Dynamic) node, amazing node which allows me to easily change skin colors of the Eco characters. The names are liable to change but for now we’ve got Elvira, Dortmund, Lech and Triarii.
