What a shame EA! Fuck off, i go to steam :-)
Since you are open to discussion and critics i would suggest you to use less aggressive language when you are on the internet. I would try something like, "Hey Cem, this is great material and thanks for the article. As far as i know from 80lvl Facebook group you can improve the performance or you may consider dropping the price. Keep up the good job." It doesn't have to be the same words but this kind of attitude would lead to a softer conversation because your intention will be clear.
@email@example.com Is there any link or video for the cheaper solutions that you mentioned before? Please share them. I haven't seen any cheaper, faster, HD, loopable and adjustable "normal map" flipbook video that you said in your first post. I would be happy to compare the results in realism.
Take a look at a pack of 50 custom brushes from Pablo Munoz Gomez for the creation of rocks in ZBrush. These brushes are not just simple alphas, they allow you to sculpt like you would with a Standard brush or clay buildup brush, whilst creating interesting rock patterns with plenty of details.
The pack also features bonus materials that include 55 high-resolution photos of rocks for references and 15 (4K) textures of interesting rock formations, including base colour, normal map, a height map and AO.
Level: Intermediate and expert.
You’ll get 3 ‘.RAR’ files and the user guide as a PDF:
- 50_Rock_Brushes_Pack.rar – This compressed file includes all the custom brushes
- Rock_PBR_Textures.rar. This file has the 15 textures for PBR workflow (15 x 5maps)
- Rock_References.rar – This file has the 55 high-res images for reference
- Rocks_Advanced_brushes_quick_guide.pdf – the user guide with a short description of each brush and how to use them.
Here are some of the possible results:
