Art & Art Pipeline / Re: Polygon count for weapons

Depends on the way you setup your game.

Is your game an over-the-shoulder camera, a third-person camera, or a first-person camera? Will the body be visible? There's a lot of factors that influence this decision...

Developer Hero Projects / Re: Dark Relic Prelude

Finally, other people can see the things Sarrene has been showing me for months! An amazing game with great art, good optimizations, and a nice storyline in the back.

Shows what a small, but dedicated, team can do!! I am hungry for more!

I can remember vaguely that they were going to do that in the future, though for a substantial fee :)

So it's always better to document, keep track of changes, and figure it out yourself (With which you learn more).

GUI Creation / Re: GUI from .png image

Yes, you can create a GUI element from a .png image :)

You don't export the png to dds, because the image you posted is not a multiple from 2 (square image), and thus impossible.

Just upload the .png image to the repository, and select it :)

it's his mug shot is all, think i out post him about 4 to 1 daily. :) lol

With these replies?

Instead of the books I proposed with their theories, I would also check about rendering environments and how to set them up. That will give you some insights as well in the back-end :)

HE-Cooper is one of the more active forum members. I just try to help people when it comes to art, technical art, and general theories.

Usually I don't know the answers, but I know where and how to find them, which I find more important :)

The theory of area designing is a bit more complicated, as it also includes camera tricks, particle tricks, props placement, lighting, actors, item-placement and scripting.

Each major subject has its own book-series (especially lighting and scripting).

I heard that "Ultimate Game Design: Building Game Worlds" by Tom Meigs is a good read about designing worlds and areas specifically.

Yes, it requires your own server management :)

Change the physics from its exact mesh to be a cube. That fixes your issue :)

General Discussion / Re: [Resolved] Higher Resolution Texturing
« on: Jul 16, 13, 12:54:00 PM »
There is an option in the properties of the heightmap (open the Properties Window) and set the resolution to HALF or even QUARTER to save vertices :)

Won't affect textures :)

General Discussion / Re: [Request] Higher Resolution Texturing
« on: Jul 16, 13, 04:49:29 AM »
It means like the following texture sizes [resolution] :


You change the size of your texture with any decent paint program (Photoshop, GIMP, w.e).

You would want to look at the UV size (it's set to 1.0); you can drag that slider up and down to increase or decrease the resolution in HeroEngine. It's in the terrain panel.

General Discussion / Re: Change local repository directory
« on: Jul 15, 13, 03:39:23 PM »
With the operation system that you are running, the installation directory has to be in the lower levels of your primary drive.

You can mimick the HE repository however in each folder you like almost everywhere (as long as the path does not contain spaces or special characters)

What are you expecting from the next "big" update?

Art & Art Pipeline / Re: Transparent and glowing object
« on: Jul 15, 13, 09:20:34 AM »
Why not use 2 textures? One texture for the transparancy, and the other texture for the glow ?

Art & Art Pipeline / Re: 3ds 2013 Problem with Textures
« on: Jul 14, 13, 02:11:04 AM »
It will probably be resolved with keeperofstars' explanation together with properly applying HeroMaterials in 3D Studio Max (2013 does not have any issues).

Open the console window and check that when you spawn the object, an error occurs. You always want to start out in the Console and Error panel.
