I’ve just finished cleaning up and uploading the final models & textures. I was going to use a custom specular map, but it doesn’t appear to add much to the overall look, so we’ll do without and save 2Mb of textures.
I still have the feeling that I’ve gone overkill on textures with this (1024×512), since most of the detailing immediately disappears unless your eyes are glued to the model.
In my eyes, it looks acceptable… now I need to get on with the scripting.
I’ve put some finishing touches to the narrow cell floor with a sort of “aged/security” variant with Japanese markings (do not enter). Maybe a little “in your face” I guess. Almost everything is ready for release, hopefully, tomorrow if I can come up with a decent product picture.
Sorry for the delayed texture update. It took me so long because I ended up unwrapping everything 3 or 4 times over the past 3 days. I kept getting distortions in my UV maps.
I am quite happy with this result so far, the grommets on the back strap need to be tightened a little but that’s an easy fix.
I really wanted to add a nose hook… I can probably still do it, but that will require some modification of the forehead strap… Unless I find a simpler way to do it…
Since I’m revisiting the fingerprint locks, I figured that I would do a little lock beauty pass at the same time. Specifically, the texture had a few glitchy spots that I’ve fixed. I also reduced the texture resolution horizontally and decided it was time to give the fingerprint reader a redo (on both lock types). It just wasn’t good.
If it doesn’t look better, it has at least the benefit of “reading” a lot better than the original. I’m also making a couple of colored variants for it.
Still working on the revised product pictures to go with it.
Since I am preparing the “official” release of the keyless padlock (okay it IS already available, I know, but not as a standalone), I figured it would be a good time to introduce a little bit of variation in the standard lock roster.
It is still a sculpted prim with quirky UVs, so there are limits to what I can realistically do with it. But I think it looks good?
There will also be a special version for my Patreon supporters too, it has been a while since I’ve thanked you all ^_^.
I’m trying something different for this one, in line with the meat market set’s decorative rings, there is a handy little button row for setting your prefered stud configuration. But you can also load presets, same as my other items that have this feature.
It’s functional, I started fresh code-wise and it took me most of the evening to get it done. The HUD texture isn’t 100% final yet and I’m sure there are issues here and there that need fixing.
