Im sitting here, and contemplate. I mean, i dont have to do anything, and awesome just happens. Its a freaking miracle, its beautifull, its bringing back memorys of some walks in the bavarian forrest, there were schachten with grass like that, were you wish you could layyourself into it and forget about the world for a second.

Bravo jK, the applaus of the arena is yours for this month, and well earned it is. I bow my head, and retreat in silence.

wow. jk that is an amazing improvement. But will that affect all maps or can it be map defined?

texture/heightmap editing in toolbox
Height map editing got slightly faster and now supports save/load*.
Texture map editing is mostly based on pako's map editor, although it has fewer features currently, it should be easier to use and is smoother (faster and blends)**.

*You need to use spring-git for save/load to work.
** Texture map editing doesn't support save/load nor is it using the command pattern (undo/redo, multiplayer, etc.) yet. I also broke detail map by porting to ToolBox so textures are a bit repetitive.

Nice stuff gajop, but it would be nice to have a little procedurality, like the ability to define ramps.
Also, those s44 houses are designed so they can be seamlessly tiled every 48 elmos.

wip of a small, versatile emp-unit. The idea is, that with the sphere wheels the whole unit acts as the "turret" while moving.

The wheels ( bigger? ) and their suspension plus the front still need some work.

for a small unit I see a lot of stuff that could be trimmed down but I think it is very nice looking.

Nice!
Perhaps make the supports for the "wheels" one thick beam instead of multiple small ones. Looks a bit more stable and also saves polys.

I like how the supspension non-solid looks frail- this transports the scifi feeling way more then all those "Yes we still built with steel, even this far in the future, thus massive" w40k tanks..

I use this "make the players physic sense tingeling slightly" myself

Its basically the psychologicall subtile way of showing off advance technology..

Look at 4:10 - massive window shuts, almost cartoonish small window angles.. everything in your brain screams that it must break, that it should break, hell you even post how unrealistic it is.
And yet, in the future- it could hold.

The place on the Skeeter where the pipes meet the deck needs work. You have painted on details that conflict with the perception the pipes connect.

I like the sharks teeth, neat idea!

You are totally right. For some reason I though I could away with it, but the effort is worth the improvement. Thanks :-).

Now here is the next issue. Look at how sharp the lines are on the turret and core piece of the ship? Now see how pixelated the deck looks?

Your resolution is inconsistent. The deck is a piece most people will ALWAYS see. It must be the same pixel resolution or higher. If not it looks out of place and blurry.

ARM Decade

For this one I tried to get the differing resolutions closer together, but I feel limited by the atlas. I am noticing that I'm getting to know it though, and more freedom seems to gradually unlock itself :-).

If I do another one I'll definitely mind the resolution-consistency, but with the current ARM atlas (and it's somewhat reversed-direction-work-flow) I'm sure I'll have to make (possibly less pretty) concessions.
In any case, thanks again smoth.

I'm starting to doubt very much if uv-mapping/texturing is the best thing for me to work on. I'm gonna prioritise making new models again :-)

Seriously thinking about developing a Modular or 'Lego style' space-bugs faction/units (aka chickens or monsters). Working title of this model: Buggy :-)
