Decided to get some more texture practice by making this headset which has many different material types.
The design is based on Razor's Man O' Wars.
Had fun making it and learnt a lot on the way.
Feeedback is most welcome.
Textures made on one 4K map and headset is 6450 tris
In my first and previous post in this game dev log entry, I had written that I wanted to do a game which was a collection of simple retro games. Unity released a new major release (2019.3) while I was putting the initial project together, and I was curious to see if one of my prototypes from 4 years ago could easily be upgraded from it. Well, it couldn't, not easily. It was a 2D platformer that implemented some useful but old scripts that were now causing errors because of deprecated code. Some…
Well, I'm making a game . I'm spending the next few weeks on making a small game to showcase the gamedev log feature on tsumea where any member can create a game entry and other members can post journal posts with art, music or just development updates.

The game I'm making itself is a pretty simple…

Forum fatigue and life priorities for our regulars (can you imagine constantly posting for 8 or 9 years?), the global financial crisis and massive studio closures which saw many of our regulars and local developers moving to other industries or overseas. And then…
For the last couple of years, we've been on auto-pilot (development wise) on tsumea, settling on a smaller focus for the site. A bunch of the features that we've had since the site began (news, articles, events, media, and games listing) were removed and others were cut back (the developers listing). The main focus was put on jobs and social features like following members and favouriting their works.
The jobs section on tsumea is great, it's without a doubt still the most useful part of the…
