Lately I've been working and studying like ever, so my brain is so tired of eating knowledge,
I have been programming like crazy lately, not to mention the numbers at my job....
But yeah, I am still pretty much still alive! Thanks to coffee! (Nonn, I hate coffe!)
I wanted to drop of some update for the blog as this weekend I had free time to simmie stuff :D
At first I tried finishing my last hair mesh, it's pretty solid now, but I still have to touch some things here and there.
A peek of it right now:
Don't know when I finish it, but pretty soon, if my agenda doesn't cut my free time again, that is!
Got some programming over s3sr done, let's say 50% of a sub-functionality, how great huh...
Not in a mood for C#, that's what happens.............
I removed from the grave a veryyyyy old project I had,
now that I have more experience and knowledge on this I was able to come up with something.
It's a accessory mesh for The Sims 3, more specifically an alpha-accessory that acts as a 3D "Fake Eyelash".
This was very tricky to get it to work, not only to make it alpha-enabled without Expansion requirement,
I had to clone a mesh from the base game, and edit the mesh TGIs and complates manually to get it to work right.
I couldn't use the GUI tools we have (TSRW, CTU, ...) because they always borked the mesh.
Due for being a alpha-mesh I had to replace the GEOM shader, as well specific mesh settings I can do only if I don't edit with those tools.
Not to mention the pain to get the lash shape right on the Sim face PLUS smooth vertex weights to match Sim facial movements.
I am speaking technically here, not everyone wants to know how it is done, but just know it is a lot of work. XD
The textures I just drawn mainly to test the difficulty to create a style to be applied to the mesh UV.
And, it's pretty easy, so much that I made around 13 of them.
But I would not release it like that, I want to actually take some time to make them not that rough looking of course.
LemonLeaf and WM will be working on their stencils too, in case I decide to retouch those I did maybe will be at the final product.
Just lately I heard of the CAP, man, they are the cutest things, I can't wait to get some of those kittens to ruin my sofas like in Sims2 haha!
But I am sure Skyrim will be my focus..
I can already see...
Oh, my grades....
Miss the big Apple....... what a loss.....
