Check out 5 Megascans assets that will be helpful during the recreation of a Half-Life scene or for the production of an inspired-by environment.
For this week's digest, we decided to find assets that will help you recreate a scene from Half-Life: Alyx or to make an abandoned ruined environment inspired by the game. Check them out!
1. Damaged Square Tiles
Since the game takes place indoors pretty often, we decided that damaged tile would be a good addition to the environment. It will work nicely if you're working on a lab or a factory room. Add a bit of dust, some peeling paint, and you're ready!
2. Damaged Wall Plaster
This asset will help you create half-ruined walls inside houses or the one that creates an exit to the street. Feel free to add more bricks, maybe even some cut wires, and there you go.
3. Worn Concrete Ceiling
A very simple and plain ceiling asset will come in handy for almost any non-living room. Tweak it with some rust and scratches to make it look more realistic and diverse and suit your style.
4. Elevator Double Door
Moving to the details, worn-out elevator doors will definitely add some more creepy atmosphere to your scene. Add some text elements, graffitis, warning signs, and it's ready!
5. Shipping Container
And for the last one, the shipping container will be a nice addition to your environment since it will help you build a storyline. It will force the abandoned feeling of the place and will remind of human existence there before.
