Earlier this week I found a program that works with 3DS Max to help generate buildings to place into games and animations. It creates really custom and/or random sizes depending on what you want it to do. It can even do interiors. You can download the program from the creators website: http://tysonibele.com
It's called BG+ (Building Generator plus)
The only downside was when I tried to export it to my game engine, it gave me a huge number of errors on why it didn't like the pre-made building. I contacted the creator and he is working on fixing the program so I don't receive the errors anymore. Awesome guy!
While I waited to hear back from the building generator guy, I played around in the game engine. One of the items we need for the level are holograms that will project from skyscrapers for AD and such kinda like this:
So in turn I played around and ended up turning one of my buildings into a giant hologram:
Over the past 2 days I took a small break from the video game world and decided to create a website for Skyride Studios. Getting things prepped and ready for later in the year when the trailer for this project is done and I can use the site as it's launch. In the past two days I've had about 80 unique visitors a day which for my standards is pretty high. I'm excited and can't wait to see how this all unfolds. If you want to take a look at the site, you can view it here:
Until next time.....
