Project Pulse Rifle: UVs, Texturing & More

In this third installment of Project Pulse Rifle, we’ll cover the rest of the creation process of the scifi weapon. The first part we go in depth to look at the UV tools in Modo, and how to UV unwrap and layout for hard surfaces and semi-organic hard surfaces. We’ll also discuss lots of other UV related topics, such as PTEX vs UDIMs vs traditional UV layouts. Join me on the Vimeo page, for rent or buy, right HERE!

Humble Indie Bundle

You can for a limited time, pick up some of the best indie games to have been released (One of which is one of my personal favourites – Aquaria!) together, for an insane price: Whatever you want to pay!

Yes it’s true, you can pay what you want and get FIVE different games. Don’t be a chump of course, the money goes right to the developers, and you can also specify how much to donate, if any.

Here’s the official blurb:

The Humble Indie Bundle is a unique kind of bundle that we are trying out.

Pay what you want. If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $80 but we’re letting you set the price!

All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux. We didn’t want to leave anyone out.

There is no middle-man. You can rest assured that 100% of your purchase goes directly to the developers and non-profits as you specify (minus credit card fees).

We don’t use DRM. When you buy these games, they are yours. Feel free to play them without an internet connection, back them up, and install them on all of your Macs and PCs freely.

Your contribution supports the amazing Child’s Play charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation. By default, the amount is split equally between the seven participants (including Child’s Play and EFF), but you can tweak the split any way you’d like.

DRM free, PC, mac & Linux support, AND you can name your own price? You just can’t beat that. Head over to http://www.wolfire.com/humble, and support independent game developers and charities at the same time. 🙂
