Talking with someone they mentioned doing 'Ship in a bottle' models and how folks always ask how its done.This is a shipwreck in a cave no point asking how I got it in there.
Its at a very early stage and just sitting things in there and seeing how it might work out, daylight pours into the scene from a hole in the cave ceiling and the cave floor needs a lot more sculpted detail.
Once I port all this to FPSC I expect to use a lot of water effects.



Awesome! Its one of those threads.

I'm speechless! You are so very talented sir, the scene looks great! It inspires a lot of fascination and questions of a rich, dark history. To be completely honest, although we haven't seen it in FPSC nor with the use of water effects anywhere, I almost feel as though it works better just the way it is. Water would add a sense of life and motion, and I just can't help but love it as is - dead and forgotten about, hiding who knows what for centuries.

Life would be much easier if I had the source code.

Thanks a lot I appreciate the comments guy's
It may seem finished but it is far from it, though from the comments it appears I have the essence of the scene atmosphere, I do have further ideas for how a level like this should look and will be putting a lot more in there to keep the players interest as he walks through it, when you get down to ground level you always find you need those smaller details.
You can already see the platforms going into it for the player to jump around trying to find a way over to the wreck, that top platform in centre isn't as close to the ship as it appears in the screenshot so it wont be as easy as it looks. Rope bridges etc seem ideal too for a scene like this as I could set some to collapse beneath you forcing you to look for another route. If you should fall I will use stairs to get you back up to the start point. Its an old style of gameplay but one seldom used in FPSC.

Awesome! Its one of those threads.

Went back to the first level and changed things up a lot.
Moved and scaled the tree leaf canopies to allow more light to spill through where areas of interest will be. Added a few more models and improved some textures that were looking a bit flat.

These are Max renders.

The same way as getting the ship into a bottle. First, you need a favorable wind...

This is looking very interesting.

Well how else do you think I get the ship in the bottle? Speaking of which, I am working on a few new ones and will have to send one your way. Would you prefer plastic or glass?

The title of the thread seemed nondescriptive enough for me to stay out of this thread... but hey! I've been missing the best work I have ever seen regarding artistic design in FPSC.

This is amazing work! I wonder why there are so little comments here.

Thanks Josh

This is a quick test video of Aegul's mod in use in this map level.
I have used the old map to to do this as I still have to bake textures for the scenes shown above. I am currently doing so as all lighting was changed and introduced global illumination which takes a lot longer to render out but hopefully will look a lot better than seen in this video.

I used bond1's Grendel character for third person and as can be seen the planar shadow's work a treat, adding a great deal to 3rd person use. The shadow gets clipped on hilly or uneven terrain but I can hide this by placing vegetation in offending areas.

Rather than baking all the vegetation I have created a hemispherical lighting shader which can be tweaked to suit whether in light or shade and it works just fine for this.

The scene contains only one light for the character, since character shaders will accept an average from the nearest light source, it falls on the character from the angle its placed wherever the character is in the level no matter the range its set at.

Ambience is set to zero and lightmapping is turned off.

Till I redo all lightmapping in Max, this is as I said, more a demo of third person in Aegul's mod and shows walking on terrain both segment and entity, it also shows climbing which would add greatly to gameplay should I decide to introduce any.



I don't trip over...I do random gravity checks.

Rolfy that is pretty cool! if the character can jump and use 100% collision with entity and segments (no passing through walls and floors etc) then this would be a great leap (sorry) forward for FPSC.

A third person adventure engine rather than First person?

Great stuff!

Sorry for the double post! could not believe my eyes hahahahahaha!

Fantastic work! You are a great artist.
And this hole game is in contrast to my game! Very impressive

I just saw this. Really fantastic use of your talents. I can see where third person would go with these types of levels. You, my friend, are an artist.

THEORY - you know everything but nothing works. PRACTICE - when everything works but don't know why. For me, theory and practice are combined: nothing works and I don't know why.
