Berlin Molecule Man

The Molecule Man is a public sculpture by Jonathan Barofsky installed in the Spree river, Berlin. The 100ft (30m) tall artwork was commissioned by Allianz SE in 1999 to adorn their new Treptowers HQ.

This model consists of 12 flat planes, 4 for each man, with alpha-mapped holes and profiles, and thousands of triangles for the edges. The 2 outer planes have the texture that you see, while the two inner planes are dark grey with gradients around the holes. This technique makes the holes look a bit 3D when rotated without having to commit any triangles to the hundreds of cut-outs. The edges of each man are modeled, taking up most of the ~3k triangle weight, to match the alpha profiles. This was a fun model for me as I was able to put my Photoshop/Illustrator/Blender/C:S skills to work in harmony and crank this out in just a few days.

TRIS: 2,975
maps: 2560x2048 (diffuse, alpha, specular)
LOD tris: 80
maps: 256x128 (diffuse, alpha)
stats: same as Advanced Wind Turbine (Electricity tab)

Treptowers 1:1 with completely new textures coming soon!

Pls remember to uprate as those internet points are like fuel for us modders. ;)

This is a beautiful piece and love what you've done with the alpha maps :-)

I tend to not fuss too much about the ingame stats as users can easily change those to suit their own needs. everybody always wants different numbers :/

yes i found out about that, good idea, but as it is a nice object, how about additionally adding some recreational values? asfaik both should be possible at the same time and would support those nice areas directly at the waterside

@n3r0 because it was the easiest way for me to make it ploppable on water without bobbing, and it's nice to move the electricity across the river (which is always an issue if you don't like big towers in your river)
