I have being working in the AAA industry for tha last 3 years and the crunch is what is forcing me to find something else to do in life even if I love 3d. Some places may be more respectful with their employees but in my experience the crunch is even calculated in advance cause they know the workers will accept that. Some people is very passionate and don´t mind to do it and that is fine but a lot of people have families and they want to build a healthy environment with them or other goals outside the working ours. Not to mention non-payed overtime and other abuses I faced. Hope this industry fixs this problem.
Those tilesets are sexy. Seeing new tilesets is like getting introduced to a new lego set.
Matthew Palaje has shared another great video on speed level design. The artist took a bright downtown environment by PolyPixel and turned it into an atmospheric night scene.
You won’t find advice on building cities in Unreal Engine 4, but it is a brilliant example of setting up an atmosphere. A right lighting setup and some tricks with materials can turn a dull scene into eye candy. So, watch this video and experiment with a prebuilt environment. Add rain, bring some lights or change the layout.
It’s the first iteration created for Round Table Studios and Matthew is going to share another video on changing the layout and other experiments, so stay tuned!
