Very cool review of the making of Spellbreak. Would be even more cool to see some videos inside UE4 showing how they do a few very specific things unique to them.
This was so helpful for me. I'm hoping to adapt your tutorial to pull off something similar comparing modern satellite imagery with historical maps. No topo, so my steps should be simpler, but I'm a novice with Blender and you've really helped. Thanks!
Even Top Notch Artists will be replaced by AI. You have no idea what you are talking about. If you do, only very superficial. At the end you are only an employee. You dont have any contact or experience to the High End Echelons we worked on. In 20 years, 40% of workforce working today will be out of jobs. First we will get worldwide financial crash, then AI takes over. Admin will remember my words in not distance future.
Lucie Lescuyer showed her new procedural island built with Houdini and and Substance Designer. The artist uploaded a video on Vimeo with some details on the production process that might be of interest for you.
This is one of my first finished Houdini projects.
I wanted to create an island generated procedurally. First, I made a blockout in Houdini with all the type of assets I needed and their placement in comparision to each others .
Then I began creating the house platform, walls, stairs, and railings and then placed it on the island. I added all kind of details around to give it more life (rocks, palmtrees, plants…).
When the blockout was finished I replaced all the boxes by real 3d assets, exported it in Unity and created various shaders to give it a cartoony look, especially for the water.
I also needed to create in Houdini special meshes for fx : the ones around the poles and island, and the caustics.
I made all the textures in Substance Designer.
