Hey there itchio folks,
I'm happy to announce that this asset pack is complete and ready for the itch.io store.
@blast82 thanks for your feedback and kinds words.
For starters Ive been
working in the game industry, mainly on the creative side of things - doing game art, animation, visual effects, design and currently working on player experience. I had recently picked up 3D as a medium that I wanted to master for game development, and it has been a ton of fun working on a variety of projects.
In between personal projects, I work with other game developers to make games for
ludum dare or prototypes. Now I run a garage development at the game asset section of itchio filling it up with requested content, and occasionally free content.
Based on arequest recently, I'd like to take this opportunity to document my development process and keep the community posted on this project I've been tinkering away over the last few weeks.
- 1 default green pool table
- 2 pool sticks
- 1 Billiard ball set
- 1 rack
Here are some screen shots / animated gifs of my work in development
Basic build wireframe of the table to dimension. Preemptively making sure the project can be use in a VR game with the right dimensions
Completed table with pockets. Modeling those pockets was quiet a challenge because of the poly count
Render test with a placeholder room and lighting. Everything checks out ok in this view. I might just complete the light box and add that to the pack too.
Textured the pool stick and ball set. Made sure the textures are all 2k, just in case I want to further theme the ball set. I need to work on texturing that poolstick a bit more.
UV mapping the table. This was a bit tricky because I wanted to maintain no scaling on the models textures, except for the under part of the table.
I have a few more goals I'd like to hit, and renders to post here before calling the project done.
- Level of detail (LOD) 0,1 - Pool Sticks, Ball
- 1 alternate colored table felt
- 1 themed pool ball - still need to figure this out
- Export formats for all props in 3DS Max, Collada (DAE), FBX, OBJ, C4D
- pool stick stand
