Hmmm, little work today, those windows and doors took some time making. The one visible is a shop with it's window sill. and there's a similar doorway opposite to this one, with a small window - that's a ticket office for the dirigible that will be docked to one of those piers. I also wondered what to do to not make the doors a cliché, so there won't be any knobs only levers.

Nonsense you have created a level of high game esk apearence i thought it looked like final fantasy style ruins myself. of course im sure that style looks like several games, higgens and alucard both remind me of certain game styles.

I my self am actually going for a model that could fit in with a Dawn of War (Warhammer 40k) map as i want to replicate a feel while still producing my own stlye/feel

anyway ***UPDATE BABY*** still am only half way through texturing and making the specular, normal, ambient occusion and light maps BUT i am very pleased with my prgress so far






warning i cant spell

I'll actually probably bail out of this compo, as I have too many projects going on. And Jasiek, I love it.

Shame dude, your WIP is looking good, as is Jasiek's there.

I've not been working on mine this week, I've been looking at mine and think...it could be a lot better, though I've done very little architectural modelling I think I should aim for a better standard than I've given...whether I achieve it or not is a different matter. Of course we'll all know when I pwn the lot of you. (Just kidding. )

multi talented little bugger arent you jaisk?

if i dare be prudent (my posh day) the model its self is basic but the texture brings it to life i really do hope yuo use that in a game it would own

-alucard_ if you have time why not simply put a texture on your wip progress and enter it because at the moment it looks great

I would, but as I am working on some well "projects" I'm keeping rather secret at the moment (OMG! Now everyone wants to know what it is! Because I'm so awesome! ... Okay maybe not ) which are eating up all of my time.
Oh and @Phosphoer:
Damn I love your style man Great looking! I feel almost forced to vote for you now haha =)

Thanks Aaagreen ^^. Not sure if you were serious or not, but it is not in fact, based on that rather excellent book. It's also an orange xD.

Plus...just to drive this point home, I've made some additions to the model:



I bet he gets good reception :p
As you can tell by the duct tape, the missiles were a bit of an afterthought, but I think they compliment the general theme of the model nicely.

I've started work on mine own.(updated screenshot)
...
It's the inside of a church with a four small windows and one big window, with a touch of bloom and HDRI added.
...
edit: I forgot to say that the scene is game ready,
shown in the 2nd screenshot.
all the objects have a little cube (which is usually invisible) at the back, which is the centre of rotation.

The other models look very good
good luck to all of you that entered

*Cries* My favorite type of modelling and my PC just happens to be screwed up. Coincedence? I think not.

Loving it Higgins. What about having a door to get on that small bit of roof space above the barred windows? Then maybe a gantry gonig out from it and going around the chimney?

Well,to a VERY amateur 3D modeller (under a month of experimental learning) the examples in this thread show just what can be acheived if you know how! But just out of curiosity I'll enter a model I made this week. Its just a simple church model, nothing too exciting but hopefully its a worthwhile entry.

You appear to have used normalmaps for the windows and water, but that is a nice model.

3D Studio Max comes with all the reference guides and tutorials you need to fix your problems, so why haven't you read them ?

No point in buying tutorials when you already have enough to learn Max with.

F9 for a quick render
F10 to setup your render options
8 to change background colours and effects

Try using a skylight, which is in the lighting tab. You only need one and they give a nice clay render.

its not that,
since i thought it would be esayier to build and texture in a seperate modeler one i am more famillir with and then import to 3ds max to add effects and flesh it out more

but i uvmapped it then brought it in to 3ds max and certin areas lost there diffuse maps and uv coordinates, i have included them in the same folder and shorted there names to 3 numbers

i understood the tutorials you get with it but most of it has yet to sink in lol

anyways to stop clutterng up this thread with my problem i started a new one,

',me thinks i need so help,'



oh yeah great models so far ppl
phospher is one of my favourites so far

hope no-one else runs into a snag

dam i hate this new keyboard its one of those flexy silicone ones' still gotta wear it in

Looking through this thread, im seeing some very good examples of architectural modelling.

I suspect that this competition will be a clincher.

I'm not going to texture it as I don't have the time to do it in (I do, but I really don't want to spend all of my weekend making textures )

I might texture it later on in the year, if I fix up it up so I can UV map it better.
