    Another weekend, another update
    I just finished recording a "crash course" on making textures, by using a combination of Substance Designer, Photoshop and Zbrush. I start from zero and assume that you never used SD or Zbrush before, and walk through the tools I use the most. Still a lot of polish to do with these, but I'm digging how graphic they look already

    Hey everyone! Think it's time I start sharing progress on my new personal project here with the Core
    I've been working on this environment for VR, at the same time recording my process to create a tutorial (which I'm aiming to release around March 2021). I occasionally open pre-orders for a very good discount. If you want to be notified when that happens, I invite you to sign up to my mailing list (I always message people in the list earlier than everyone else): https://www.thiagoklafke.com/mailinglist/subscribe/
    Here's the latest WIP. I've been working on the back alley area and I'm finally happy with the compositions. This area posed an interesting challenge, and I learned quite a bit about what works in VR and what doesn't (tip: lots of random lines, stairs that go up and down cause instant motion sickness 🤮). I redid this area twice, but now it feels amazing in VR. No motion sickness and navigation is much better, because I have different points of interests. I'm planning to do another Dev Log video soon focusing on what I've learned in VR, for now, enjoy some screenshots 

    And here's a Dev Log where I show where I landed with the design blockout:

    So I stumbled onto this article yesterday;
    https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/who-made-fy_iceworld-a-forensic-investigation#comments
    In the comments, some dude with semi-solid proof claims to be Fantasy.
    So this means RD lied

    I just discovered this because the author was on the latest episode of the Quakecast. The project was in fact started on Quake (Darkplaces fork) but after hitting some snags it was posted to UE4. They are doing the same thing of Graven in building the maps in Trenchbroom and importing in UE.
    Fascinating that the creator is a musician by trade.
    The teaser and two gameplay tests are the footage that exists for the project at the moment

    I know that for you guys this is nothing, but for me as a beginner in 3dsmax it is something.  Trying to renovate one of my older maps (de_island) i have learned how to make my first complex unwrap. Basically i made an arch using the same texture as the wall one as you can see in the picture.

    When I was learning SD, I was put off by how long the official videos are. So I recorded a crash course introduction, where I show only the main tools you need to know to make cool textures, and also the general method that I use for most textures, so you can go from zero to this in about an hour and half

    There's a lot more I can do to this texture to make it look much better, but I wanted to keep it simple and not overwhelm the user with too many different concepts:

    No, I was curious to see if the game could handle stacking the NPCs in the house in just one area... but then I had to take a step further with a larger area. I call this The Morning After
