I’ve got a big school project coming up, for which I’ve an idea but I’m not sure is realistic. Me and my partner are planning to recreate our school entirely in blender, it isn’t a small school either :p. Furthermore our is plan is to make it possible to “float” our the school in 1st-person, kinda like in Unreal tournament.
The question is, is this something we can do or are we in over our heads? The deadline is february.
Does your teacher know anything about Blender? If so, then this is probably possible. If not, then you might want to consider some more intermediate steps like modeling a chair or desk, then add a room to put the desk in, then expand to multiple rooms. There is a huge amount of stuff to learn if you want this to look anything close to UT level.
I can say that you will be able to spend that length of time studying Blender. It all depends on your instructor though.
My teacher doesn’t know anything of blender, so that’s a bit of a problem. I didn’t mean the modelling quality as a comparison to UT, only the camera when you’re dead, free floating. I was already planning to do multiple tests, even if it only means to get the hang of it. It does have quite a bit of repeating elements and It doesn’t have to be really really pretty. If it were something like this, I would be super proud.
I’ll be sure to take some pictures tomorrow.
This sounds like it is setup as an independent study if the instructor does not know Blender. My experience with independent study classes is to set some goals and try to get there but to keep the teacher in the loop and expect to run into problems (aka learning opportunities). In my opinion one of the main purposes of doing these types of classes is learning how to learn about things without a knowledgeable mentor. In the end, you might not have a finished model of the school but if you didn’t get there then you should still be able to show what you learned that you didn’t even know it was there.
i’m willing to follow lots and lots of tutorials, because I acctually want to become a game devolper when I start my study. So effort isn’t a problem. I’m following tutorials right now and this is my first creation,
I think i’m up for the task, because I really want to
