Budapest Tram Line 59-REAL

  • Thank you for sharing your work :)

    But I think your building needs some rework in the texture area - there are some cutted vehicles in front of them ;)

    Tomorrow, I will make some texture photos, so I will retexture some objects :)

    In the end I went to take texture photos, so I want to show that:



    Anyway, I had a space lesson in my gymnasium, so took a photo from the FUTÁR display..., Which it didn't work :D It's will be god texture base for modell :)


    Anyway, I saw the Márton Áron squere and I recognised the lot of differences between this state and 2014's year google maps pictures,

    In last month the XII. district painted and renovated some buildings



    In your opinions this pictures will be good texture base models or I should try again with better lights?

    In this holiday I want to modeling the Kiss János altáboragy utca tram stop's place, but i am incredibly laisy :D

  • I think, the lighting is good (the last shot maybe is a little too dark, but that should be fixable in photo retouching software).


    But you can use photos like this only as a base ... you don't put the whole photo on your 3D model of the house. It's more like you take parts of the photo and rearrange them to make a good texture. All the parts of the house which are hidden behind trees, light poles, cars and so on must be replaced by other parts of the house, who look identically.


    As an example: In your first picture, there is this big tree on the right which hides the third row of windows (amongst other things) - here you would copy and paste one of the other two rows of windows instead.

    Unfortunately impossible to remove the tree from the picture, beacause it hides the buildings text's end (hided text is "hivatal") and I can't draw it. So I will try again in January and I will test my new mobile phone, and I will test Camscanner app for buildings texture :D

  • Of course it's possible to remove the tree over the text. All you need to do is make another photo from a different angle, about the text. Then in Photoshop (or sg. else) you cut them into a new picture. There're tools in PS which you can remove stuff like this with (stamp tool, etc).


    The last picture is a bit too dark, it may be harder to make it look good (maybe it'll look like too exposed), the other ones are perfect from the suspect of lighting.

  • This project is living.. :)

    In this month I will publicate some pictures of roads... :)

    Today, I finished the spline creating to the map, so I can build the Farkasréti temető-Apor Vilmos tér part of the map :)

  • The project is active, but I always have massive lack of time, which will reduce in the middle of June, when I finished with my Final Exam /Matura Examination / Érettségi . I always have 10-14 hours of activity per day, include the weekend.(!).

    My main project is: Finish the Fok-Gyem font packs. The old version is done at the moment, you can download from this link:

    And if I will have enough time, I will finish the FUTÁR version fonts, and I will publish the original bitmaps files in open source, so you can use it for make displays or what you want.


    In this time, I updated my Budapest's IBIS Codes pack, which include all Budapest's routes(include: buses, trolleys, tram, metros, ships and HÉVs):

    The next project will be a road sign pack, which will contain all Hungarian's road sign. The project's goal is to learn Blender's texturing and UV mapping, because I recognised the Blender is better then SketchUp in modelling, because Blender can do better smooths. I learned the modelling tools, but I have got some difficulties with texturing, but I hope, I can solve my problem... :)


    If I finished with this projects, I will return the map building...

  • Lotus can only use 1 LOD model. And for such a simple pole I would just use the generate LOD function of the content tool. Or no LOD object at all. The basic objecte and texture for this pole should be simple enough already, and by the time the time lotus switches to the LOD model the thing probably isn't even visible on screen. (afaik LOD isn't fully implemented in lotus anyway)

    They look e bit too high poly indeed, something like 12 or 18 side cilinder would probably be more then enough for the pole.


    To make the main object a little less poly heavy you maybe also able to use the modifier form the video you linked, although just quickly making it from scratch might cause less issues and be faster.
