Hahahahaha! :lol:

Actually that was spot on. All my painted and 3D assets (originals) that I did for the DFU ---PUF gone... :(

Im still not too keen doing the realistic approach, like what Ive done in this research video. I want to do stylized painted aesthetics, but that is much harder it seems. Not because of that you need to paint all your textures, but because I want to do a lot of unusual stunts with the shaders and other FX. It is actually quite ease to do realistic stuff in Unity, simply because it is set up this way right out of the box. What I want (envisioned) needs some serous shader programming so that stylized look could be pulled out correctly (like what you would see on the oil paintings). Shaders needs to have at least three different texture distance dissolve points, as well secondary UV sets for the detail textures (normal and albedo). :P

I guess something like what this game does?

Hmm, not like that. I mean its neat effect for the story Ardman wanted to present. They used overall oil brush screen effect, however what I had in mind is -painted in- effect (in textures and models alone).

My goal is to create LOD -layering effect-, closest things to the camera would have more details in (using detail maps and secondary UV sets), but the further you go it desolves gradually into just painted textures and models at the farthest point became more rustic so to say. Thus everything altogether giving the illusion of the plane (view) progression and keeping what is closest to the player (and important), more detailed.

While oil painting overall FX is quite interesting, you cant play that for hours, since we are talking about RPG game, you're eyes will get tired fairly quickly looking at that. You have to give them focus. But the natural, layered, one.

The painting effect transfer inspirations (as well look and feel)

And considering more visual explanation, here take a look at this. Model/texture setup similar to this, just not this much cartoony -imagine the painting styles from the images above on the model. This would be like an mid-close LOD distance layer.

This would be the far distance LOD layer (texture and model vise).

These would be the closest LOD layer modeling approach (just with painted in textures instead of this photogrametry ones) (the soft organic modeling)

Lol I hope this makes any sense.....aside in my own mind. :lol:

Was testing some of the DF models (house) enhancements. To see how much can I push it. It is still modest modeling work, with original textures.

The power of the PBR and new 2018.3 Unity is really awesome. The model of the house is really basic one, just one step from the original DF house mesh and it makes it looks really great. :)
