    My western map. what do you think?

    Hi everyone!


    I am just showing you a map I have been working on for about 2 days now, and I will be updating every day until its finished.

    I am trying to achieve an old west atmosphere, and this is a real learning process for me, because this is the first time I am learning how to unwrap/UVW mapping.

    please tell me what you think, and right now my main focus is landscape.

    The cacti need to be taller and have a more uniform diameter, other than those two things all seem to be in order.

      The cactus in that image is HUGE or the utility pole are just too small, and the grass is too green but I don't really like the brown, bottom line those are small details that can be fixed in no time.

        It looks pretty good. Try adding some light fog. It will really spruce up the atmosphere.

            I think you are missing the contrast that a real desert has. a much more saturated sky, desaturate the cactus, and once you add some shrubs and rocks you should be in a better spot

              thanks Myrkr I am going to try and achieve that feel using the post process effects. The shrubs I am working on, as well as some buildings.

                Ok everyone, I didn't have much time today but I managed to finish the church, and railroad track.

                This is just a pic of what the map looks overall.

                  looking better, did you scale it by using a bot? that's your reference, but anyway now looks better, keep going and let's see the end of this level.

                    Its looks better. The sky should be a dark more rich blue at the top. It looks too pale. See if you can get a different skybox texture, or make your own.

                      I took a long break, but I am back in the game!

                      So yesterday I made this hand painted sky using Photoshop. It wasn't hard at all to make, sense it just has one white cloud.

                      I have alot more modeling to do, the first house took me a while to make, and I am having difficulty with the UV mapping, but Its a learning process right.

                      I realized that textures are just as important,as the models.


                      thank you for your time. It wasn't a huge update but feedback on the sky would help
