Took a break from 3d modeling work for the past few days, decided to play around with lighting and other effects in 3ds max to get a general sense of what types of environment/moods can be created.
I made a material with some emissive maps and applied it to my simple cube scene, thought I would post it since it turned out pretty cool (3ds max rendering):
More to come later on...
As of just now, I have finished creating all of the individual color ID maps for the floor textures, seen below in my progress tracker.
Next steps which I plan on carrying out (bolded are the ones I intend to focus on in the next month or so):
Finish modeling wall textures (30 ish to go).
Finish modeling a few detail textures.
Create material ID maps for all wall/detail textures (60+ to go).
Paint all diffuse maps using a common substance painter project file(s)
Testing 3D displacement mapping on planar objects using my upcoming scifi PBR materials. The results looked really good, however this can only be used for a still render (note the polygon count on the top right of the below screenshot). All textures created in substance painter and exported at 2K resolution.
More information here on displacement mapping is available on Autodesk's 3DS Max Knowledge Base: https://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/3ds-max/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp
Work is continuing on my upcoming scifi mega pack that is inching closer and closer to being released - today I decided to compile a few PBR materials that I created as some more tests in substance painter. The below images show a simple 3ds max scene that I blocked out in a few minutes as well as some renders from substance painter.
Materials available in uncompressed PNG format and are 2k textures. They are also perfectly seamless and will tile in all directions.
