Subject description: Just started and ingame it looks crap
Reply with quote

Hello. I don't know what's my voxel's problem. It started to be a Mobile Gap Gen, looks nice in Voxel Viewer and Voxel SE, but ingame it has silly white pixels and looks crappy.

It's solid and I can't figure out the problem with it.

Ingame I use TurretOffset=-20.

Looks like it has no normals!

Go to tools->normals->autonormals and use the latest version.

Should look way better after that.

If that's not the case, make it a bit less cartoony, and apply a texture to it. Just export the current texture, open it in photoshop, and stick a generic metal texture set to "overlay" over the texture and re-import it into vxl editor.

I used the Influenced Auto Normals on it. Then Smooth Normals.

But I'll try that texturing, if I can find that option in GIMP.

Use Cubed Autonormals (v5.6), with a custom range of 2.5-2.8 (I use 2.6 and 2.7), click to smooth your normals, leave Build Influence Map on, and use a 3:1 smooth to contrast ratio (I use 15 Smooth, 5 Contrast). You'll see normals pretty close to what Azri_Apoc uses on his work.
