It turns the whole desert into shiny gold dirt!
whoa! :shock: Could its brightness be lowered 2x or even 4x to get more nice picture?

The new artifact picture is awesome. @MaNGusT
Campaign 1 Main structures will almost be finished by 2020. :D
I've also noticed the mantis body is almost finished.

The current result is far superior. It turns the whole desert into shiny gold dirt! With "fog" enabled it turns into a real blocky mess, but at least this looks cool.
:lol2: We urgently need a map "Sk-GoldRush2".

Srsly tho, it's a cool effect to have on a custom map.

Oil barrel :-) I currently work with cam1 models only, if anyone interested.

I'm working on this 3 cars and before I'll finish color textures for them, I want to know, should I save their color scheme (very clear and contrast) or make them dirty, rusty and decolorized ?

I'd suggest dirty/rusty.

I think in the original texpage, they were about as dirty as the number of pixels allowed. You can still make them more colourful than the photo ref, since the warzone style is fairly high contrast

Good stuff, don't go overboard with the details though :wink:
Remember that the scale is very zoomed out, so it might rather be worth exaggerating some of the smaller details so that they show up at all.
Why not do the lowpoly at this stage and check which details show up well

Hi
Looking great :) I finally downloaded the experimental branch and there is some work to be done with the shaders still. Also it seems that the values passed to the shader for Scenecolor, ambient, diffuse and specular are totally arbitrary and wrong. Do you know where to change these? I hope they are not hardcoded into warzone

Hello)
they are hardcoded, but I don't agree that they are wrong. Ambient is 0,5, diffuse and specular are 1.0. I could agree to lower ambient light, but do we really need such contrast lightning model? Also classic models require ambient light to be 1.0 without using of diffuse light.

I remember that we had already discussed this theme. You have your own vision about these values that results in very contrast final coloring, darkened diffuse texture and almost black(conrast) specular texture. While I just took default values from standard ogl lessons, In result we can work with regular "middle-gray" textures that have more flexibility in adjusting.

Anyway, I use a lot of tools and all of them prepare regular textures with middle brightness which suit wz without any changes. So... I think that everything is right and friendly for new artists. Well, ok, not everything, but almost everything. We can discuss i.e. why I put minus to half angle formula in vertex shader and got the right result while the right sing is plus. My thoughts are that wz's coords system is messed up and I don't want to bother myself with searching what exactly is wrong while I can just change a sign or invert the axis, as I've done for Y channel of normal map to fit Blender's defaults x+ y+ z+ .

May be you have wrong shaders or build? vulkan branch already includes optional vertex normals and all necessary shaders. Try this one.
I've made some fixes to wmit shaders recently to synchronize results with wz, but they can't be used in wz, bcoz wmit still has wrong values for diffuse light. :)

I'm fine with current changes and how they work. Everything works and looks just standard. I mean standard as I see from ogl lessons on the internet. And I suggest to focus on recreating models. It has gone on long enough. Now we have a big chance to finish the mod. :-)

P.S. if you want, you can play with your own values anytime (see line 55 in wmit frag).
