    • Attercap Buildings
      By Shroomblaze · Posted
      Yea the Clone Stamp Tool in Photoshop is my friend. Attercap, are you planning on releasing all these buildings at once? I'm just speaking from my own personal experience, I have a found that if you post multiple things at once you get far less potential for subs. You see the featured system is partly based on ratings as well as subs. So you could get a lot of subs but never really reach the featured page in some cases, but if you get a bunch of ratings with those subs the system somehow calculates that and increases your popularity more and bumps you up closer to featured. Once you reach the featured page it can and most likely will snowball into a massive amount of subs.  I personally have found that if you post a lot of something at once that people tend to not rate your stuff or will only rate one of your things. So what happens is your ratings get spread out because someone will rate one of the items and someone will rate the other etc basically watering down your ratings and nothing ever really surfaces to the featured page. I'm not saying this is always the case though. A lot depends on the time of day you post, your following etc.  After many asset releases though I have come to realize that I'm no longer going to many items at once, maybe 2 or 3 at a time max.

      Yeap obviously I will add some trees ! I agree, it's quite odd. The shop is too flat, the green 2D-owning is quite strange. Need some work. These two new buildings are game-friendly with around 700 triangles (not polys) so I can add some details. Indeed it's Sketchup. It's enough for small buildings. Should I do a complete tutorial to motivate others people ? What do you think ? Clone tool ? The clone Stamp tool in Photoshop ? Could be an idea, yeap.
