Unity Help with Unity 3D grass

Recommended Posts

Aneesh Mohan    116

HI.

Im starting out unity 3d and I have some questions about textures and models . 

 

1. I tried downloading models for some flowers. It had this .dds file and in one file i could see bits and pieces of the flower (leaves ,stem all seperate and not as a whole plant )  . How do I use this exactly to create the plant ?

 

 

2. To draw grass , are png files enough or should i look for some 3dsmax file or something ?

 

3.I want to draw like some good  looking grass with a waving animation so how to do this animation ?  Will it be one model file or is it like playing two model files in sequence to give animation ? 

 

Also any links to usable grass/ tree models will be helpful . I know the sites to look for them but I couldnt use anything I found so anything which you know works on unity would be helpful for me to learn the file format and usage.

1) textures are often broken up in the texture file, the models texture coordiates should sort that out for you so importing the mesh to unity and applying the texture should work.

 

2) png files and simple shapes are enough for grass, if you want more complex shapes you should look at something like blender rather than 3dsmax (3dsmax is an awfully expensive piece of software and really overkill to make a grass model, while there are free educational versions you can't use those for non educational purposes)

 

Normally you'd want a single model file with either a static animation or a rig (a rigged model can be modified using the physics engine which is far more awesome(for large amounts of grass this might get quite expensive though))

You need to read the Terrain docs, and the terrain tutorial.

 

Docs first:http://docs.unity3d.com/Documentation/Manual/Terrains.html

 

Then the tutorial: http://wiki.unity3d.com/index.php?title=Terrain_tutorial

 

All this is covered there.

      I'm looking to form a new game development team, mostly for training purposes.
      About me:
      I'm a student - Unity C# developer, who worked part-time in this industry for a couple of years already. I've been a lead developer in many "random collab groups" as well as a few companies. I specialize in creating 2D games for Android, but I'm looking forward to trying out new things - especially 3D development.
      Currently, I've got one Android game close to a release so I'd work for this team in my spare time. 
      About the project:
      I've been thinking about creating a simple tycoon-like simulation game for Android (and PC eventually), inspired by the Game Dev Story (initially released by Kairosoft in 1997) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_Dev_Story 
      I haven't done much planning though, therefore I'm looking forward to hearing out your ideas.
      Right now, I've only created a test 3D scene using placeholder models and implemented a simple pathfinding system for me to play around with:
      https://i.imgur.com/xAd0l4o.png
      https://i.imgur.com/nHZerOT.png
      I'm looking to work with people who are:
      - willing to take a position of a: 3D modeller/2D artist/Designer
      - not necessarily very experienced, but eager to learn and improve their skills
      - active - check in at least once a day
      If you'd like to apply for a different position which I didn't list here, you are welcome to contact me as well.
      While this project is created mostly for learning purposes, if we ever get to release it and generate any revenue - you will recieve a certain percentage of it.
       
      To Apply:
      Send an email to rk.softwaredev@gmail.com
      Introduce yourself and attach an example of your work (if you have any)

      Hello.

      We're a two-member team and I'd like to introduce you our game - Feudal Alloy. 
      It's a metroidvania-style action RPG with fishbowl-powered medieval robots.

      We've been working on the project for a few months. I'd be happy for any feedback.
