Idear Man

My version of the idea lamp. I know there are a lot of good ones already, just wanted to get this out of my system. (made 7 months ago, skyrim+depression kept me from uploading it) Here you go:

Workshop link here


-Only used 998 polys (limit is 1000)
-The rungs used up 144 but it can be optimized. If I just make a dodecagon, it'll only cost 24 polys, and I'd do a transparent/twosided texture on it, faking the rungs.
 -If there is any interest in this, I'll do a blue skin (with black spots for the hamster)
-The wires need to be more prominent, I had "curled wires" in my concept, but didn't go w/that due to poly count limit.
-additional styles could be 1. Robot Hamster (re-skin) 2. Zombie Hamster (re-skin) 3. Hovering balloonicorn (takes you to pyroland)
-Thought about a transparent light bulb, poly count limit kept me from doing anything with it. But I think a glowing filament w/clear glass would look much better.
-also the whole thing could be a bit bigger I guess...
-oh and I should be shot for only using 6 bones for the hamster, haven't found any guidelines for bones/bone limit.
-again, didn't bother w/lods much, read below;

-Valve please make a nice chart showing recommended lods (ex. each lod should be X% of the lod before it)
-Texture size limits and poly limit say 800 and 256 on one page, and 1000 and 512 on another page, yet there are items in game that break these rules.


Not dead, just re-evaluating my life.

Just bought a Pops plush (regular show) from Amazon. Holding Pops in my hand made me rethink my whole life.

Thinking about growing up...if I go into what other people my age are doing, it's gonna be a very long post, so I won't. Just know that the words portfolio diversification, marriage, house, kids and responsibilities would've been used. (I'm gonna continue dreaming for a bit longer)

Also, I've had an item ready to go for several months now. Depression+Skyrim kept me from uploading it. Anywho, happy almost Friday...
