Rural 001


Info:
The theme of this addon is Rural setting, with some:
sugar canes,
grass,
house; The house has a walk-path for walking in and out of the house.
banana and coconut grove.
barn
rustic fences
floor textures
moon
external rain
fog/smoke

Many variations that you can take these props a lot further.
Simple enough (low poly) to work on all recommend systems.
compatible with Moviestorm version 1.4.x


Notes about usage:
Wind-sway has been used within some texture variations in a few props, though i recommend only be used when all the acting has been done due to it's resource overheads.
A sparse set is the ideal when building a realtime animation movie; adding a full set with all it's features is one of the last things to do. With good planning, moviestorm can look so much better and film without lag frustrations.

I hope to extend this addon a little further. Though the challenge is to keep the props simple yet looking cool.

I hope people will like and find it useful and easy to use.
If there is enough interest from users and myself, there are plans to build a few extensions.

Thanks.
Grass/sugar cane, is a tricky substance; keep it low (poly) yet still looking cool.
You're not going to find grass that has a face for each blade...
No real-time engine can work with that yet.
I hope this would be a cool compromise for low-poly vegetation within moviestorm.

I'm still wondering if making vegetation as seen within iclone4 would be practical...

Update V.1.2
Screen shots:


Shortly, An email will be sent to everybody who has purchased this addon to let them know how to update
for free.
If purchased and don't receive your update, welcome to PM me with your email address.



Notes to rural001.1 users:
This update should (has been tested) update directly over the previous version without any problems, though if you have a movie in development with assets from version 1.1 and want to update... just delete all the props from the sets in your movie (that are contained in the rural1.1 addon) before updating to 1.12..Then re-add in the new rural props. Better to be safe then sorry.





A lot of extras have been added, along with some minor adjustments (fixes):
Terrains,
a few more shacks-in good shape and bad with a few material changes,
a large snap-able (that wield together if close by ) walking surface so you can walk anywhere above ground now,
A rain prop that can be used for watching the rain from inside or moving it around the set,
more trees and vegetation

Check out the rain prop video here:



then when you're done, check out the extra props in a video here:



cars and human props not included.

can still pick up a copy for only $7US: click here

Quick update: Thanks to AngryBlack's info;
Found A small error in not including the rain prop within the rural update...sorry.

I'll be bringing out an update this weekend (a few days after the 1.4 moviestorm update) to fix the rain, along with a few extras i'm sure you all would like.
Stay tuned;

meanwhile:

little more info about some props:
snap-able- walk path


The "Terra 25M navemesh prop" any of the 4 edges can be brought within a meter of another edge to be able to easily snap together.
From the 2 pictures above you may see that walking along multiple props is possible.

Due to the 1.4.1 updates in multi-mesh multi-materials settings, I'll be updating this addon and offer people who have purchased this addon an update via their email soon.

No errors appear on normal use of moviestorm nor (on save or reload )is there any log.txt errors recorded.
So it appears to be ok.

Here is the error in the MSworkshop with a picture of my XML editor and the fixes I'm working on.


-Note:
The soon to be released update should work fine within already made movies seeing that i'm not changing any old settings- but i'd be careful all the same- always make backups manually with new file names...
A few extra props will be included too.

Finally an update to 3DTreeRural 001 addon is ready to download, compatible with MS1.4.1.
All the people who have previously purchased this addon will receive an email (with the subject line : "Download Info - 3dtree2000@gmail.com")


New users can click the to buy a copy.

THe Basics props (contains many variations not shown on the props screen):



Fixes and additions in this (14thseptember2010) version:

  • All multi-mesh, multi-texture props were edited to give unique names for alternative names.
  • Fixed External rain prop Added some extras; multi-speeds and variations.

Additions:
  • A moon
  • A Snap-able 2m squared Nav-mesh platform (invisible to camera)

Notes about Nav-mesh (walkable platforms in MS1.4.1):

Nav mesh: don't try to overlap the ground edges or it will fail to be 'walk-able'
"This will make the Nav-mesh un-walkable"

Never try to weld a nav-mesh to the outer edges of the ground or it will crash moviestorm.


Nav-mesh work fine if you take them off the ground level. The 2m squared and 25m nav mesh platforms will weld in a snap-able fashion.

Nav-mesh work fine (like my 2 sets of stairs) if attached to ground level but not on any ground edges.

Never remove a nav-mesh from set if you have already set a walk-path on the prop. It will cause problems in your set and movie.


known errors and work-arounds:
2m squared snap-able features are not perfectly positioned; so if they don't become walkable then you may have to snap to another edge of the mesh. Just use the gizmo to change the angle.

happy to help; this is a normal 'addon' file and can be installed just like any official moviestorm 'X.addon' type file by 'adding more content' (after starting moviestorm) and choosing the addon file to install.

very welcome to Send me a Private message if you would like any more help.
cheers :-)

3DTree,

There was mention in one thread that you may accept MS points.

Is that still doable?

I've got points but I've never transfered them to someone else before. Time to learn.

I want your rain, rustic and zeplin addons for sure.smile.gif

I've already downloaded your BSG addon.

I'll take what ever else you've got if I can afford it.smile.gif

You do good work!

About points, I've got more then enough MSpoints to know what to do with, sorry. ANd i don't seem to be able to buy much with them for the last few months.

Hope you like the BSG addon.

The zeplin hasn't been included; it didn't seem to suit the theme of the 3DTreeRural001 addon.

Is the zeplin included in another pack?

Or possibly by itself?
It would look really cool slowly making its way over farmland.smile.gif
