Week 3 Journal

What I made:

Concepts for the Aftermath project, for the lanterns.

Models for the aftermath project, none of the pieces are connected because there are some scale issues and some different options for things such as legs/ feet of stuff. As well as ensuring that they are connected properly.

Map layouts for the Aftermath project.

What I learnt:

I learnt about environment and asset production workflow and I have learnt some little details from the links I gathered for the aftermath project, particularly interesting in the wood material that turns into its burnt version. Least that trigger boxes still work in VR, and my friend Jordan brought up the issue that you don’t really have a player in VR, which I found interesting to think about how events would be triggered, cause I found that there would be flaws in using timers to set off events.

Resources:

This week I didn’t do too many tutorials instead, I gathered tutorials for my specialisation project and for the aftermath project.
