Exurbanite posted a topic in Cities: Skylines Modding - Open DiscussionHey all, this is my first time posting on the C:S forum. Being an architecture student and urban design enthusiast, I have come to love this game and the fruits of its massive modding community. I've decided to dive into asset creation myself a couple weeks ago by learning Blender and model importation into C:S with the ultimate goal of creating a collection of "Main Street"-style American storefront assets. After a frustrating week and a half, I successfully uploaded a test model with a diffuse texture a couple days ago into the asset editor. Following tutorials on YouTube and elsewhere, I created a diffuse map via baking, but as you all can see (and I have later found out) this method should only be used for making LODs as the quality in game is pretty bad. Ideally, the model should be textured like this. Right now I'm kind of at a loss of what to do next in order to create an acceptable texture map for my first building. My question is how would I make a quality textured UV map in Blender that can be exported directly into the game? Another way to phrase this question is what is the procedure for creating finished UV maps such as these from the author Avanya? Or am I forced to export the UV layouts to gimp/photoshop and texture them there? I know there are many skilled authors with knowledge of Blender modeling and texturing that frequent here, so I ask if at least one could guide me through this rough patch; it would be massively appreciated. Here's a pic of my model's untextured uv map in Blender. What should be my next move? Thanks in advance, If I can figure out how to remedy this issue I look forward to contributing to the C:S community.
Welcome to Mt. Sterling, Missouri! I will be adding photos of the 'Sim' City in the near future... but in the meantime, here are some teasers I created for this magical forgotten town of yesteryear. Please note: My FICTIONAL Mt. Sterling is not in any way affiliated to the real Mt. Sterling in Missouri in geography or scope. No actual representation beyond the name is intentional. Enjoy!
