Re: Texture size affecting game framerates?

I think a 512x512 is sill but he can do what he wants. 2048 is safe, in a few years 4096 will be safe if it isn't already. You can go smaller. As far as unit textures, these 2 aircraft from grts, they had 256x256 and panel line details because aircraft are closer to the camera.. Of course he can do...

http://i.imgur.com/XdIozgf.png ingame: http://i.imgur.com/WEbWZWj.jpg damn I like the assimp support, much less hassle compared with upspring, hm I guess it could use on it some animation , some smoothing fixed it by checking the apply modifiers option and unchecking edge angle and a bit better UV ...

Re: Texture size affecting game framerates?

Well, part of your flow NEEDS to be doing a well planned texture UVmap. Lazy uv maps waste a lot of space, when you are worried about performance you need to spend the time to really craft all your UV maps. In before blurry.. Those are nice screenshot, ok I get it now - when all units should get a ...

Re: Texture size affecting game framerates?

Not trying to come off like I am being mean, but what about your work justifies a 1024 texture for most units? I don't understand. If you cannot do it in 512 x 512, you may be wasting a majority of uv space. Also do you mean average or MEAN size? meh, I wasted anyway alot of UV spaces just alone fo...

Re: Texture size affecting game framerates?

Evo units use lego, which is a giant 2048x2048 atlas that is used across all the units. The cool part is, the more units you have, the more efficient it becomes. I did the math one time and I think at about 21 units an atlas that size starts paying for itself. My game uses so far 50+ units, like yo...

Re: Texture size affecting game framerates?

Use dds. Most S44 textures are 512x512 and that is plenty if you are an efficient UV mapper. hm right but I used different approach for texturing my models, I admit it is not the best one to use. An alternative approach is the BAR path where you use one huge texture for all units, and judging from ...

Texture size affecting game framerates?

so uh currently my mod uses like 47 files on average 1024x1024px scaling and it takes 41,4 mb in total they're all in PNG format. And my question is if that would have large impact on game performance, because currently my workflow is that each unit gets 1024x1024 sized texture per default and somet...

Re: PzSl Development Thread

oy, I toyed around with Krita and seems to be a kinda nice, but it seems to lack plugins/brushes stuffs? oh well. What I really like about it that it has a wrap around feature which means it is possible to make seamless texture on it directly, and not having to fiddle around with various techniques ...

Re: PzSl Development Thread

that is a long range directional radar not a radius based one isn't it? radius based one my game isn't going to use any sort of gadget for now. realistically speaking most of the radar is actually directional based but it also depends how it got constructed like multiple radars or just fixed one in...

Re: PzSl Development Thread

why do several renders when 1 perspective, front, side and rear image will do. hm I do it in the next time then also what is the dish? Why not a radar dome? That looks like a satcom trailer Because it is supposed to be a radar trailer + you cannot watch 10 hours on a radar dome spinning its radars ...
