Day in the life of a voxel
Posted 20 September 2007 - 01:54 PM
Here is a list of references I’ll used while I’m making the vxl:
A list of the programs I’ll be using:
Will’s Voxel Editor
The first thing I would do is convert a diagram of the plane into voxel format to use as a template. This process is complicated so I wont go into details here & just skip to the finished product.
Next step is to create a grid of the fuselage using the template as a ruff guide. I use the pink colour BTW as it stands out more, so I can see what I’m doing. I wont apply the actual colours until the shape of the plane is done.
Using the grid I just full in the gaps in-between the grid…
Until the whole fuselage is done.
Using another bright colour I mark out the wing & tail.
Fill in the Wings & make a grid for the engine nacelle.
Now with the shape of the plane done it’s time to colour it in & do all the details.
The base colour is applied using seven different shades of grey & the cockpit is marked out.
Darken edges around the wing & tail, panel lines & cockpit detailed.
Added Remap, markings & finally removed the template & mirrored the whole thing.
Now comes the fun part, using VXLSE’s skinning too with Photoshop to add some life to the vxl.
A lot of layers & shading later if now has a nice metallic look to it.
For the normals I use a custom script I made for VXLSE II.
It looks bad but after some touch-ups it looks better then the VXLSE III auto-normal IMO.

In spite of that, I still prefer making a 3D model, converting and later fixing.
Anyway, does the size of the voxel have striking influence on the speed of the game after resizing?

Nice idea but it would be like a 3 hour long video o.0
I was thinking about that to, but i would only watch beginning, middle and end and some special sceenes that big changes happend.

Google won't work. Google doesn't work like that, all Google does is link you to a page.
according to our determinedly dopey Prime Minister Mr Brown, Obama also has a beach in Normandy named after him. If that can't win you an election, what can?
