Resilience Satelle | r.i.c.e

Hello guys!

Today I was laying the tiles at Moget’s house.
It will be a longer process because of the shape of the roof, I have to fix one by one as I have not found another easier and more effective way to do it.

Hope you like it!
Best regards,
Rute Perdiz

Hello guys!

Today I finished Moget’s house.
I’ve placed the tiles one by one and finally reached the end.
Tomorrow I start a new house.

Hope you like it!

I remember that there was a Ivy request/mention :slight_smile:

It’s on the way :wink: Still needs fixing both in shading and amount.

…The cat lady house may be a possibility too… for Moget town :yum:

Ho! Forgot to mention that I’ve also been darkening the top of the chimneys using Vertex Paint:

Smoke from the chimneys is also planed for eventually.

Are you planning to age the wood on the houses? The roofs look old, the walls look rather new in my humble opinion.

Hey Meshmonkey, Thanks for your comment!

Noam Town is supposed to be a new town, ranging from a 3 to 6 years old town.
Moget town is the one supposed to look much older (30 to 50 years old). I’m adding Ivy on many houses, because this plant grows very fast in a moist zone, like this. The same goes for the moss in the roofs. Wood however takes more time to get more stains :nerd_face:

Hello guys!

I started making the entire wood walkway to make it easier to put the houses in the right place.
For now, I just started putting the boards and later I will put all the support.

Hope you like it!

Awesome work @Rute_Perdiz! :wink:
… And on my end I’ve finished placing the Ivy and also adjusted the Ivy material to fuse the best possible with the roofs moss:

There are just 5 Ivy objects in scene (wall, wall corner, roof, roof corner and roof ridge) all the other 95 Ivy objects are instances.
I’ve just learned that the Ivy in the Fall has a fruit… I may add that up also… later :face_with_raised_eyebrow: …no promises do :zipper_mouth_face:

Have a great Sunday friends! See you on Monday!

One trick that I use often on my paintings is color splatter to give some random variation.
Therefore, I’ve been making tests in adding it to the far far away terrain and also for the Mushroom island terrain:

The color splatter is a bitmap texture that tiles in a very noticeable way, so I’ve mixed it with a procedural texture to make it more light in some places than others and thus breaking the tiling :thinking: :face_with_raised_eyebrow: …or just messing it all up :roll_eyes: Hoo well… :joy:

@Rute_Perdiz is still working on the catwalks / walkways for the Moget town and although they are progressing nicelly, on a screenshot the difference ain’t much noticeable. Tomorrow there should be some visual progress :slight_smile:

Hello guys!

Today I bring you one more evolution on the wooden walkway of Moget’s city.
I already put all the boards in and now I started to make the access stairs.
Once I finish them, I will do all the support.

Hope you like it!
Best regards,

Hello guys!

Today I finished all the access stairs and the railing of the village’s wooden walkway.
Tomorrow I will start the support and then start in the houses.

Hope you like it!

Hello friends!
This week I’ve been working on nothing that can be seen :disappointed: I’ve mostly have been dueling with the low light condition shots, trying to simulate many lamps… without using any :face_with_monocle:


At this moment this is just emission glass on the lamps, but still without any light baking GI. I’ve attempted to use just a few lamps to light the scene, which did work to a point, but as soon I activated all objects the memory must have rise to the PC limits and all I get was crashes. Hopefully the Baked GI will bring this up to the desire look. But even so some emission textures seem to not light up :scream: something needs fixing…
On the other things I’ve been making a spot were Shar will seat:

The rock is actually from Textures(dot)com, instanced many times in diferent scales and rotations and the mushrooms were made by my self back in 2009.
I’ve also improved the cliff texture a bit:

But it ain’t premium yet :confused:

@Rute_Perdiz is still working on the wooden walkway for the Moget town and is progressing nicely.


Have a great Sunday, see you on Monday! :smile:

I wish I could be a part of it

Hey opusgeo!
Thanks, by commenting alone you are already being part of it :slightly_smiling_face:

I had seen your work featured here on Blender artists previously, and just now I’ve checked some of the others that I hadn’t seen. I’ve loved your work! Awesome style! :smiley:

For Resilience Satelle there are many things were low poly characters would be awesome to have:

  • boat drivers
  • fisherman
  • people to fill in both towns
  • balloon passengers

Unfortunately, at this moment, we don’t have any budget for freelancing work, but, if we eventually find some, I’ll find you to ask if you still have interest… although I’m only good at working, I am not good at finding budgets, so… :sweat_smile:

Best regards
Rogério

Hey you. Thank you for your kind words. I am trying :slight_smile: I admire what you do. My wife is really into 3D. I hope I can find time and chance to do what your doing with my wife. We also have cool ideas :slight_smile: keep it going man!

@opusgeo:
Awesome! When you start your project please pm me the link that I would like to follow it :grinning:

Right, “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” … :face_with_monocle: No…:rofl: but these do have Stars on it:

They are from Nasa, so I guess they are accurate :grin:

Does anyone know a way, old or new, in any software to add light to a scene without lamps or emission shaders? :thinking: … I just seem to need some king of spherical object with a shader that makes the textures it touches bright up… is that even possible!?

image based lighting. thats one of the big things with eevee.

an hdri is used to generate main scene lighting, and various probes are used to create area approximated reflections and light bounces to simulate a raytraced global illumination. (also known as PBR)

Hey Daedalus_MDW,
Thanks for your help! Yup, that is what I’m doing now (except I’m using Real-Sky instead of a HDRi but works the same), but baking of the light has to be done in the end of everything is made, you can’t change the lights and the resulting file, once saved with the baked light, has more than 1Gb.

Well… In my quest for a lights without lights… I’ve made an Halo material :rofl:


The damn thing actually kind of works :confused:

But looks very funny on the solid shading:

But it’s undeniable that kind of improves the default bloom appearance :thinking:

I’ve attempted to bake the lighting, but it makes the file open using 31 Gb of Ram… I only have 32 lol
…anyway… if they improved the Sonic in the Hollywood movie I’m sure I can solve this too :cowboy_hat_face:

Ok… once you start thinking more like an Hollywood technician and less like a civil engineer you actually start getting reasonable results and only with 20 lamps + fake halos + Eevee Bloom:


All was looking just pretty nice:

…Until :roll_eyes: :pensive: you notice that the Halo Spheres become noticeable when they are in front of Volumetric clouds. Now you don’t see them:

Now you do:

Nothing like a good puzzle :cowboy_hat_face: …for tomorrow, see you then!

Edit:
Humm! :face_with_monocle:


…Actually may not be a bad thing at all… at least not from all angles…

:astonished: Ladies and Gentleman… I trust that :face_with_monocle: I’ve achieved… The Night :triumph:


The stars now twinkle, are in high defenition, there is a moon (it’s a real moon, a sphere, for fine tuning of it position), that somehow it actually reflects on the water and with an halo and everything (now that I’ve discovered the halos I want to put them in every object :rofl: )
