  1. y u do dis 2 me. You've come an extremely long way, fantastic work.
  2. View File Gaithersburg Fair Ground Model Someone asked for this so I figured I'd throw it up. All textures should be packed into the .blend file but I also included all textures of the model in the zip file. The ground texture is the texture from the 2019 track so make sure you re texture once you model and bake. New crowd texture on here also so feel free to tinker with that!

    Title says it all. Track layout is a Vegas style J-hook. Credits: Me, Klayton .4 and .3 compatible. If any issues comment below and I'll see what I can do to fix them. Enjoy!
  4. Oh you thought I made that RV for no reason?
  5. For one low price of 617 verticies you can get this 30 ft 1994 Winnebago Brave with only 570 faces driven! With the higher detail cars and other vehicles I thought we needed a better RV model. Then I found myself deciding which carpet went best with the tile and what fabric swatches to use with the seat leather
  6. View File El Paso Sun Bowl 2020 (MaxDMan) 2020 El Paso Sun Bowl model. The .blend file comes with three sky boxes, one for day, one for sun set, and one for night. There are also two mountain textures in the .blend, one lighter colored one for day, and a darker one for night. The idea here was to give the option for a day show (deleted light flare from the light poles, day time sky box, and lighter texture mountain backdrop) and a sun setting/night time show (light flares on light poles, sun set sky box or night sky box, and darker colored mountain backdrop). Since all 3 sky boxes and 2 mountain backdrops are in the same .blend, just move over the appropriate ones to surround the stadium and delete the ones you don't need. Simple. Also when exporting, make sure you change the properties of the transparent textures in the .material file. The .png image files that need a transparent code are as follows: AmericanFlagStill.png CrowdThingy3DbackNEW.png CrowdThingy3DNEW.png ElPasoBGMountain.png ElPasoBGMountainNight.png SBlightflare.png TexasFlag.png AmericanFlagStill.png WhiteMetalRailing.png The size and scale of the model may be slightly off since I didn't model a track to help with a size reference so a slight scale change may be necessary.

  7. @AaronLurie Tomato, tomato? Will be up in the scrapyard section later for anyone who wants to use it. These are in-game screenshots (.37, I'm old school with an old computer) to make sure all the textures worked properly and see what it all looked like out of blender. There are 3 sky boxes, and two mountain textures to use for a day, sunset, and night time feel. All are included in the same .blend file. Just drag over the sky box and mountain texture you want to use and delete or keep the light flare from the stadium lighting. Scaling might be a tad off so re-adjustment might be necessary I usually eyeball scale based off the track but didn't make one in this blend.
  8. I've always liked Houston 2008 with the table top in the middle, if that wins that may be a contender. That track was awesome but I think theres enough Throwdown tracks. Other promoters need a little love too
  9. You all get to help me decide what my next project will be! Since we're all presumably stuck inside, this will help me pass the time and hopefully bring some joy to everyone else doing the same. Help me decide! The poll is in no particular order, and voting ends one week from tonight on 3/30 at 11:59 PM EST.
  10. No need to have two of the same tracks! I'll finish my model and get it up in the scrapyard for you and anyone else who wants it. Modeling and texturing is really all I wanted to do. Getting it in-game is way less fun lol
  11. Not bad for picking up blender after months and beginning this a little over 48 hours ago
  12. Looks really good so far. I echo what Chris said. Export with a basic texture on the entire track and just drive around for a bit hitting all jumps at different speeds and angles and take note of what ramps need adjusting, then make the adjustment in Blender and re-export and repeat until you're 100% happy. Glad to see some really good stuff on here still. Does that mean I can retire form content creation?
  13. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU MEAN A PETER PAN PEANUT BUTTER ALERT!? Won't download it bc my computer is poo but the stadium model and textures looks top notch, really great job
  14. To further Klayton's point, don't even waste time baking. I throw on a stock dirt texture, sometimes a different texture for the ramps versus the ground just so its easier for me to visualize what each jump looks like when I'm testing, then get it in game. Baking and texturing before you're 100% done modeling testing can cause real headaches. Just some more info for you as your stuff is improving.
  15. Not going to lie I didn't even read more than the first two sections of this post because of your attitude. No one is required to listen to you, give their feedback or agree with your ideas. We don't owe you anything so don't act like people don't care or are being dismissive as if you have something everyone MUST read, agree with, respond to or care about. Stop sounding so self-entitled with just ideas, if you're trying to get your ideas into action you won't get farther than a stones throw with your current attitude. No one has to be nice, and in most businesses people are cut throat in order to make it. Get used to it. With that being said, I applaud your ideas and efforts to try and bring something new to the industry . I personally don't see it feasible with the way the entire culture towards motorsports is in this country anymore. It's dying. The age of gear-heads simply doesn't exist anymore. If you want to try it, go ahead, literally no one is stopping you, I just don't see it being successful. After all, we all call this the monster truck INDUSTRY, because that's simply what it is and what I think it always will be, even if you disagree with the reasons why it's an industry. The way it is now is successful (whether you like or agree with it or not) and until something better comes along theres no reason the people up top will change it. If you want to be that force to stir change, go for it.
