Kerrey: An Age I've been working on

If you feel like you're up to the challenge of building your own Ages in Blender or 3ds Max, this is the place for you!

You can open the Blendfile with: Open recent


Of course that's nonsense, because of course you don't have the same file path as me. Sorry.
You have to open it from your folder. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

The wooden bridge consists of four individual pieces because it was apparently too big! :roll:

Confirming that Dulcamara's file opens just fine in Blender 2.79b...which is the most recent version that agebuilders can export to game from, using Korman.
As she says: these are straight mesh assets that you can export to Unreal, to texture and light them appropriately there.
As you probably already know, there are plenty of tutorials available on the best ways to do that export/import.

If you intend to use Unreal, then the "photorealistic" part comes from your creation of high quality (potentially PBR) materials in Unreal Editor. It has very little to do with the ploy count of the meshes (or lack thereof).

If your objects are animated and you export them as FBX, then disable "Animation → Baked Animation" in the export window. I have noticed it makes exporting 10 times longer.

Agreed.
The material editor will not be enough though. Uru uses only color textures, whereas Unreal will also require metal/roughness maps and normal map. For this reason it's best to find a website with (potentially free) PBR textures and use those.

I'm a little confused. Why do you make your Age in Unreal? And why do you want to make it photorealistic? It's a lof of hard work :o and if you bring in scanned assets that becomes even harder because those are high quality assets, and ideally you need to have all your assets at the same level of quality.

Because it looks good. I'm a sucker for Riven level of visuals. :D Also I'm an ambitious masochist who wants perfection. :twisted:

Dulcamara, I got the files in Unreal. This is perfect. Thank you.

Here's some screenshots from the development of the beach house:

Kitchen

Unfortunately I tried texturing the fbx files you sent Dulcamara and Blender 2.49b wouldn't import them neither would the most recent version of Blender. I did however manage to get the .blend file open with the whole house however I can't seem to texture the objects for the life of me. Applying a texture to an object still results in a pink material.

I'm gonna try to work some more in Blender to get a lot of the house and objects textured. Also I'm encountering tremendous lag in the house which is possibly due to the objects or potentially the landmass size or both.

Edit: Nvm I opened the .blend file from Blender itself (newest version) and it opened fine. Now I've exported the whole scene and am placing everything in the map.

If anyone wants to help with texturing that'd be great btw.
