Bad Peanut sometimes makes things: [RELEASED] Sotunder Sunken Station

95 posts in this topic

That looks like a lot of modeling work.

I checked out some pics of the irl station.

I think it could be a little darker and less vibrant, and maybe accentuate all the little details, because I can see they are there just not very visible so it makes it looks flatter.

And the roof has more rust or whatever that brown thing is on the copper roof, it's not that clean green.

Also the entrance corner looks a bit weird and broken where it connects to the ground but I assume that's wip.

Needs more nopes. 

Like spiders, snakes, human sized bats and etc. 

 

But so far it looks freaking fantastic.

I should say that everything but the heritage looking part have no normal maps as of that picture haha so hopefully they're the only flat looking parts (yellow and red brick buildings do have all their maps)

and I'm still playing around with the ground connection bits

With the roof -  it uses one texture coordinate for all 8 sides of the dome, if i add a browning affect it could look a bit too repetitive? do you think i still should? - I was trying to save on space in the diffuse by only mapping one face and repeating them.

In terms of darkness - it could go darker (and I agree) but i'm thinking that it does get that bright in direct sunlight but most of the time melbourne is overcast like the european map theme (which it looks much better in) - what do you think? make it darker and risk it being too dark in other themes?

Also just a a general query: the road that's on the short end (the tram road in the pictures) should i embed that in the model (because it's actually 2m higher than the terrain) or let the player figure it out - first means i would set it to be a tram road and the asset would need snowfall to work, the second option would mean a bit of confusion for subscribers but more choice in terms of road placement... I'm torn

Holy crap - that is awesome! I remember walking past it when I was in Melbourne once - such a beautiful building.

It would be good if more facades could be added to the station.

what do you mean? It's got all the facade of flinder's street station - there's no more to add??

I like big stations and I cannot lie.

 

 

Can we use it like a through-station like the real thing, or is this a stub-ended terminal? 

it's through :) the tracks turn into tunnels at the swanston bridge end so you can continue the tracks and bring them back up to surface whenever

I always think that is an unfinished station without a canopy due to budget constraint.

Moreover, the owner of the station can take advantage of the air rights attached to the station.

hahahah I'm just recreating what's current - i was debating doing the original design but it makes more sense for people to have what's there at the moment if they want to try and recreate melbs a bit.

Magga cammara, that looks good! I love that mesh roof. I think this could make a really good main metro station as well.

Excellent stuff. This is exactly the kind of model that we need more of in the workshop. Looking forward to it!

 

What inspired your roof structure, or the whole station in general?

Looks awesome! I'm amazed that to date no one has attempted to create any of the iconic London stations- St Pancras would be amazing

i think it's the effort that goes into it haha - a little daunting - flinders was hard enough

How can the elevated track would be the cross point to about midway of the station, Mr. BadPeanut is what measures?

Hey guys, just a quick screenshot of the trains I'm working on now, this is my first vehicle asset and by god they are a hell of a lot more difficult to do - what a learning curve. Still I think they'll turn out ok :) they'll be released in 3 car set and 2x 3 car set (6 car set). These are the B Class trains in Perth, WA. Still working on getting the UV mapping ok and making the textures.

Here's a reference picture:

and here's my WIP model:

      I will be sharing my next assets in this topic, you can check my previous assets here in my workshop page . I finished my old bridge asset and this will be the first asset in this topic  I hope you like it. Detailed information is provided in asset page.

      As I gazed at the peeks of MrMiyagi's Paradise Reef green mountains, I said to myself, it would be nice if we could have clouds that brushed against the mountains like we see in the Caribbean and many tropical locations where some clouds hang low. Or even look down through clouds at our cities and regions. Or how about taking a first person flight through them in a plane or helicopter. Then @RonyX69 provides us with a script for the rotor shader so we can have semi-transparency and eventually it hit me to try and make 3D cloud billboards just to see what would happen. I also took inspiration from the cloud billboards in Flight Simulator X.
      I have mixed feelings about the results so far and I'm not sure if this will go all the way to a workshop item. But I think it's worth a try.
      Starting the billboard method:
      First thing is to make a plane and map it with the desired cloud texture. Then it's important to duplicate the plane, flip it so the normals are facing opposite directions, offset it a bit so no z-fighting, and then mirror the UV in both X and Y (in Blender). At this point there is a lot more experimenting to do in order to get an good billboard orientation to see a seamless cloud when rotating the best we can so we don't see too many edges from the sides. I will be studying cloud billboard methods and share any interesting info I find. There are many possibilities with all kinds of cloud formations.
      How the game renders them...so far:
      The clouds do not have a smooth transition between the closeup intended look and the LODs. At LOD distance, they develop hard edges and lose the fluffiness.They also disappear off and on I think when in LOD transition. I don't know if this is a permanent limitation with the rotor shader or if we can overcome it. If not, the best this kind of asset can be is screenshot candy. Also it would be a good idea to make some kind of anchor like a rock so when you want to bulldoze the clouds, you know where the base is since it's high above.
      Current challenge: To make better cloud billboards and see if the LOD transition can be improved.
      Below are some screenshots of my experiment so far. I did the mesh as a quick test model so please excuse the shape.

       

       
      The rest are shots I took forcing good angles with the camera

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
      Next I will make better billboard formations. Maybe some can be simple flat meshes for shots right under or over them. All thoughts and suggestions are welcome.

      UPDATE: This thread is no longer being maintained.
      Information within may be incomplete or obsolete, and is kept here for legacy purposes.
       
      CITIES : SKYLINES ASSEMBLIES REFERENCE
      What is an assembly? In C#, the language Cities : Skylines is written in,
      " An assembly is a file that is automatically generated by the compiler upon successful compilation of every .NET application. It can be either a Dynamic Link Library or an executable file. " - From CodeGuru.com
      In this case, I'm talking about Dynamic Link Libraries, also known as DLL files. More specifically, I'm talking about the libraries of code the game uses.
      They can be found inside the game installation directory, usually in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Cities_Skylines\Cities_Data\Managed".
      If you look in this folder, you'll find 18 files, only three (for now) of which we will be dealing with in this thread. They are:
      Assembly-CSharp.dll ColossalManaged.dll ICities.dll
      NOTICE:
      Publishing decompiled code is illegal and would get me in serious trouble, so I will be limited in what I can show you on here. In order to better understand this topic, you will need to examine these assemblies yourself. There is plenty of information on how to do this online. One good way is to get ILSpy.
      This topic will just be about what the classes, fields and methods are and do, and an attempt to bring light into the way the game works internally.
      I won't actually be showing you any of the actually code.
      Also, at some point this topic will get too large, so I will probably just move the entire thing to the official documentation site, if possible, and link to it from here.

      SM2 Abandoned Train Stop.
      This train stop has been sitting in my hard drive for too long. Time to release it!.
      Best plopped in those seedy parts of town....or industrial areas perhaps.
      Plop cost 3000
      Bulldoze cost 300
      Power req 44
      Capacity 7500
      It still acts as a passenger station plus it will let freight trains go through it.
      No dependencies and as a bonus it is also Maxis vanilla rail compatible.
      Works like a charm!
      Enjoy.
