Updated 15 hours ago

The evolution of A.I all within a tree created by a generation of A.I and Human scientists, now long extinct.
Mini Blog:
19th March
Morning: Switched everything to Unity 2018.3 HDRP. Messing around with settings, see video below.
Afternoon: Putting a rig on the MOAI so I can pose her and maybe suspend her in cables or roots, the roots will be like organic fibre optics. These cables pipe into her spine essentially acting as a central nervous system to the outside world.
Sketch:


Complete:
  • Female AI Mannequin - modelled, UV'd, texture baked. Needs some textures then to be rigged and animated
  • The Vault Entrance - Modelled, still to texture
  • Preliminary lighting and planning
  • Basic Rig for MOAI - Skin weights will need adjusted before finalising. Posed Hanging for the diorama scene.
  • Added mad Goat AA for perfect pixels, coupled with HDRP temporal AA, nicest results!
ToDo:
  • Cables
  • modular parts
  • light fixings
  • terminals
  • biomes
  • relics of the past

I want most of the things in the vault to feel perfect and alien. Futuristic and sci-fi, a slight comparison to the outside world but still thinking about how the art style will tie in with semi-realism.

I did a bit of a change in direction from the moon bunker Idea, I will come back to it but need to get on with making the actual brief.

I've yet to properly start modelling and to be honest overlooked the theme. But, I have some plans to incorporate this tree thing now, will be quite Iconic. I'll be doing a few sketches tomorrow and likely twitch streaming, although I have the flu at the moment, so bad timing, just need to balance my energy. Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/robertramsayart

Dani MaloschikWill you release it as a free asset?
I'll do a lite version with like 1 of each thing, but then a full versions with all kinds of extra stuff.

Bartosz BrodaHow does it connect to Yggdrasil ?
I was thinking of the Vault door being the bunker entrance and the tree growing out of it, but on the moon.. Like genetically we discovered how to make plants grow off the Earth. It's a very abstract theme to be honest and a bit too specific, so I'll just piggy back off what I can so that I can still make a broad range of assets.
