Our first Venice /Northern Italy Asset Pack with 3D-Scanned Content is ready to hit the Marketplace. If you need to create a scenario set in Italy or Venice, it will never have been easier than with this pack.
So, we went to Italy – Venice, Florence, Milan and Pisa. What we came home with, is
this... (Demo from 0.05 - 1.10, Snow Shader instructions - 1.12 - 1.52, Material Shader instructions 1.52 - End)
We brought our 3D-Scanning equipment, returned with 12.000+ images and when we got back home, set to work. Eventually, we finished a total of 30 3D-Scans, retopologized them, added another 76 hand-made models and thought long and hard about how to give you the most effective technology to put those models to use.
What we came up with is a system we consider to be very useful.
Wall segments with openings for windows and doors, which can be easily edited with additional skins and a vector-based material system that will enable you to change colors almost instantly, and create a great amount of variation.
Also, we have included beautiful smoke particles for the chimnes and a full-grown snow shader - the fluffiest so far, in our opinion!
All models are heavily optimized, so no high-end hardware is needed to run this pack properly.
Along with all the other bells and whistles, we provide you with a gondola, a canal water surface, a moon-mesh and illuminated skins for windows and doors.
We are aware that there is still work left to be done, so we will keep improving this pack with your feedback.
