Large High School

One of the simplistic models that I've created. I'm currently using the realistic population mod in game and need a bigger high school to host a much bigger number of students. So, here it comes!

Model info:
Diffuse/Specular/Normal/Illumination textures added
Texture size 4096 *4096 with lod texture 1024 * 1024
Original model about 2500 polys with the lod one around 800 polys (cannot remember exactly)

In-game info:
Size 12 * 8
3000 students
Construction and maintanence costs around the vanilla one * 3
Education accumulation 130

Other in-game stats I cannot really remember
Just feel free to edit the stats to fit your city

Thanks for subscribing!

You can send it here: :steamhappy:
Actually my process is almost the same with you, except that I use Blender for 3d modelling and Normalmaponline for normal mapping. :)

@Vexcarius I saw your asset and it looks very cool! Suprised you can make it within 10m! The method I used to make this one is quite dumb as I actually know little of using 3ds Max in making models. I used Sketchup make the model first, colour the faces with different colours (for me to identify which texture to put on which face), the imported the model to 3ds Max, unwrap the UV, render the diffuse map, and used PS to edit the diffuse map. The texture is almost made by my hands. the normal map is baked by using Nvidia normal map filter. Would you mind to leave your email address then I can send through the files? Then you may check and better understand what I said if you don't mind. Afterall, thanks heaps for your comment!

don't be afraid to use 1024 x 1024 textures. Before UV mapping. Decide which part of your building grabs attention / which needed texture space. Minute details like fences, pillars, and small walls can occupy less texture space. I made this 16x8 asset only using 1024x2048 texture.

Great building! I guess you just need to downsize your texture to 1024x1024 or 2048x1024 so that the file size will play around 3mb - 6mb for this size of building. Don't worry, my first asset in the workshop weighs 20 mb. I re-edited the textures and I was able to turn it down to 6 mb. You can also merge some triangles to lessen the tricount.

@No Dread absolutely right bringing that point!

The trick most use to get the file size down is called UV mapping. There are also tutorials around for it. Basically, you can use the same texture in repeating or different places. Image format likely won't change anything, as rendering engines typically use their own format. But who knows.

Thanks guys for the comments! Hmm....It actually has a much bigger file size than I expected. The FBX plus all the texture images is only around 7m. Don't really know why it becomes so big after being composited. I'm not actually a good modeler. I used sketcup to make the model and then 3DS max to convert it to FBX. The textures were made by using PS. Will try to convert the texture into a different format (currently png) and see whether it helps. But this can only be done no earlier than this weekend as I've got a really tight schedule. I did try to make the image size smaller before - like 2048 * 2048 - and it looked pretty rough. Sorry that I'm quite obsessed to perfection. See what I can get. Or if someone experienced in 3d modeling, it would be much appreciated if you can give me some advices. Cheers!

Nice school!!!
SonOfNitrous Aug 23, 2016 @ 7:04am 
and I suggest using .dds format for textures

nice, but 38mb is way too much. if every subscribed asset was that big, it would take an hour to load the game.1024x1024 & 128x128 should be possible for such an asset.
