Sanguine's PT Showcase.

Post by Sanguine » Sun Oct 20, 2019 8:45 pm

I've been working on this showcase for a few weeks now, My island is located to the north of Morrowind and the island in question is the large island to the east, the other islands should be ignored. I'm aware that there might be some floaters but I tried my hardest to check and fix them, please give some constructive criticism and if my showcase isn't up to standard then I would appreciate it if I'm directed how to improve my work.

Welcome, let's get right into this.
First thing, the file is not clean, learn about cleaning here: https://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org/content ... e-tutorial many items are dirtied:
Image
and cells without landscape data can be cleaned out in files like this or exterior claims,
Image
You should also clean out the islands that aren't for review.

I noticed that you are using a LOT of different regional rocks, rocks only get mixed like this in region transitions, and even then its 2 or 3 regions at most.
Image

Next issue I noticed is how the ice chunks are all evenly spread and uniform in a lot of places,
Image
but you had the right idea keeping them closer together and not going as far out into the ocean here:
Image

Your island has default land texture showing, this shouldn't be seen so close to completed areas.
Image

Very steep terrain should be covered with large rocks to cover stretched terrain textures.
Image Image

I can't see very much vertex shading on the island, you need to have a dark shading under statics and a lighter shading between landscape textures and between ground and water.
The terrain on the whole island is rough and jagged, smooth it with this:
Image

There are a LOT of landscape texture seams:
Image Image Image
Seams happen when more than 2 textures are touching, cover them with statics.

This looks weird
Image

The rocks underwater are very evenly spaced, and very repetitive, you also don't need this many rocks underwater, when you decide on a single region rock type to use, make sure too many of the same number aren't too close together.

We need some more buildings and walls in this fort to show you can work with grid/angle snap
Image

The roads and hills should be less straight and square to be more interesting
Image

Roads need to be sunk into the ground to look traveled on, as seen here https://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org/content ... ding-guide

Ice sheets like this are meant to be tiled with gridsnap with other, similar pieces
Image

You have statics hidden under terrain:
Image

A lot of work still needs to be done, but I can tell you made a good effort.
