3dsmax - Unity Project Website

So well now I present you the website that should be showing my Unity project (it's a school project).

Note that the project is not yet finished. There are many things that need to be fixed and that need to be done. (some materials got messed up after conversion, collisions are not really working the best they could..I did not even start working on light/shadow maps)

Here is the link. Enjoy. Hopefully one day it might actually be worth something^^

3dsmax - 3dsmax and unity

So well...I have problems with collisions in the Unity game engine. I spent two days figuring out which model is making the game crash. I found it out but I did not really know what to do with that. Anyway I set it to convex collisions and now it more or less works. It's slow around 12-30 fps which is not what I should be getting. There has to be another problem somewhere.

Anyway everything gets converted and compressed and sometimes it generates errors on the textures for some unknown reason (at least to me).

So here you van have a look on what I have so far....not sure if I'm going to continue working on another rooms. I haven't even done the lightmaps/shadowmaps yet and this is going to take ages.

3ds max

At school I had basic animation techniques and 3dsmax modeling class. For it I spent ages staring into 3dsmax creating a model of a woman. Now with the more advanced class I should be creating an environment that would be later imported into a gaming engine.
I did not come with a brilliant idea or anything but I decided to learn a bit about 3d modeling by creating objects I can see and measure. I started with creating 3 different types of chair (normal wooden one modeled out of blocks, metal one modeled using splines and creating an armchair using chamferbox). Later I created other models to learn some basics ... well the following image shows what I do right now.

I'm no expert in doing this but I think that I can actually improve and start to like it once again.

Anyway the scene shows some objects from game store outpost. I don't spent ages on making it look 100% the same but I at least try to make it look similar (more or less, depends on the object some made me angry soon so I did not really care much about them... I don't plan doing anything with those stairs! Door is fine in the end, but it needs a handle...argh).

Anyway whatever here's my work in progress.

EDH Korlash, heir to Blackblade

Just wanted to update my earlier Korlash decklist. This is the more or less final version. I've played many games with it and had lots of fun with it.

It is a deck for fun not for competitive play or anything as I probably stated in the earlier post. You can check it here (at tcg player)

Korlash, Heir to Blackblade

Valakut for fun (Standard)

A friend of mine bought Valakut Ramp deck for the upcoming PTQ so I decided to build a let's say budget version of the deck as well. This might be good for the less experienced players here. They will discover a new deck type (it might get pretty frustrating too though, so we will see). I'm tired of playing Vampires, Mono White Lifegain and Tempered Steel artifact aggro against them. So now some will have to suffer against my Valakut Ramp^_~.

Valakut Ramp
4x Valakut, the molten Pinnacle
4x Evolving Wilds
2x Misty Rainforest
12 Mountains
5 Forests

4x Expedition's Map
4x Khalni Heart Expedition
4x Harrow
3x Cultivate
4x Explore
2x Pyroclasm
2x Comet Storm
2x Lightning Bolt
3x Steel Hellkite
