  1. We are migrating the Unity Forums to Unity Discussions. On July 12, the Unity Forums will become read-only.

    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.

    been sort - of worried it'd be difficult to give a custom mesh a collider, however it was also simple, add the ' mesh collider ', and a bit simple terrain made in Blender now also is ' ground ', or could now make a basic video - game, tell important stories, or work over perhaps an effects - based setting, etc etc . . .

    image # 002 -- the character now has an interactive environment, or retro - style level, etc etc . . .

    this is very nice progress, and perhaps in the days to follow 1. add more terrain, 2. think over how to add lighting, 3. effects, or perhaps 4. add plants, or relevant props, details . . . .

    added simple alpha - grass to the prototype . . .

    image ref # 002 -- made alpha texture in ' Paint 3D '

    and, there's also grass in the prototype, or hot stuff, only problem was had to set the shader - type to ' particles ' to disable cull mode // might not have been the best way, going to add also other stuff . . . :) :cool:

    so, not sure what to make, decided to make bit over the ' fates ', or blind // twisted ' sisters of fate ', it's just various old greek myths, and legends, not sure idea is to make them into villains, or perhaps at best ' oracles ', that could help the heroes that way // perhaps they have various useful items, or could then barter a few things, information, or ideas . . .

    image ref # 001 -- first edition, trying to get the idea right, what the ' sisters of fate ' are, etc etc

    overall, there are various definitions of ' fate ', some also call the sisters ' mistresses of luck ', they're called the ' coven of good fortune ', and perhaps that they oversee the ' court of destiny ', overall it's very early lore // pre - viz, and not sure how to even put this stuff in any content, or what stories to tell, or how . . .

    upload_2023-4-1_9-6-56.png

    image ref # 002 -- after thinking the stuff bit over, added a sixth sister

    these are early pre - viz boards // design - quality references, and don't have any impact on the story, or what specifically could happen, it's more been thinking over if they'd make good ' bosses ', semi - good support, enemies, or perhaps a place where one barters for information, or risks one's life, or fortune in a gamble against the ' sisters ', however there's also a chance of winning, it's overall a fascinating idea to work from // early reference, and also that most people see ' fate ' as something either positive, or also helpful, and maybe it's not the case, idea was to make something similar to the also famous serious Darksiders, where it's the ' Riders of the Apocalypse ', and also the charred council that's the primus motor, or also main protagonists, as it is got no ideas, or any writing over these things, it's more an early reference - board // pre - viz standard, and now the goal is to find how, if, or at all to use these design, it could be interesting villains, or barter-for-information ' bosses ', however think overall it's a bit of a ' dead - end ', and might not use them, it's also slightly ' random ', or rule-by-chance villains, and not sure they're 100 % evil, or even make sense as characters, enemies, or anything . . . .

    no matter what, destiny, luck, happenstance, or ' fate ' is an interesting topic, however have no ideas what to make over the topic, or idea, think overall want to make something like Darksiders, and perhaps there could be a few side - villains, that also work as ' oracles ', or barter-for-hints, or bribe-for-support, not sure it makes sense to tell that serious stories over these ' villains ', as they're rather simple, also boring, and perhaps so ' trope ' - defined it's almost pointless, no matter what bit early work over ' fate ', or one way of talking about the topic, or classic also myths . . . . :) :eek:

    anyway, the idea was to try and make something like this, perhaps more in Unity, not sure the ' sisters of fate ' could be something that's similar to these ' fate - titans ', or powers-that-govern, over whatever the ' charred council ' is, etc etc . . .

    upload_2023-4-1_9-43-56.png

    image ref # 001 -- the charred council, sort - of the governing-lords, or titan-council of the Darksiders series

    also think the character - design, or overall graphics // production - quality is rather cool in the Darksiders series, and hope to make something like that, however atm only have ( very ) early ideas, a few references, and that's it . . .

    upload_2023-4-1_9-49-58.png

    image ref # 002 -- fan of the Darksiders setting, very cool // iconic design, references, and themes

    anyway, looking to make a tribute // Tomb Raider - series over something like that, think it looks quite cool, and the art - direction makes sense, also ' sells ' the idea, and it was a fun, perhaps iconic, and quality writing, sort - of a modern classic if you ask me // opinions differ, also are my own (TM), think overall the seris has a ton of good stuff, and perhaps making a tribute, or more over at least the art - style makes sense, not sure it'd look good in Unity, or one could make a stylized version of RTX // effects, art, etc etc . . . . :) :D
