LC #38 Urban Decay

Please enjoy reading through this thread as an archive, but it is closed to new posts. You can still download the old models and also post your entry in order to ask for feedback here

Hello to all, so this will be probably the last (for this year) Lighting Challenge as you know it (before good news )and so it's time to rock !

There's the fbx remodelled using a real urban-plant from autodesk plant I've done some tweak and also Ciro Cardoso helped me a lot !
you will find the fbx file and also the max 2015 files. If you can donate the scene also in other format pls donate


The files were checked but if you find anything wrong pls try to fix it and share
Also to keep the dimension low I didn't apply smoothing or b-leveling to the scene, again if you would like to share a bigger version let me know

Also this will be a great chance to import the model in a real time engine. Also from now on we will have a winner ! and also a badge for the best work. This will still be a workshop and a place top work together so don't get too serious with the prizes and winners

as always

Hello, I tried to import the fbx in maya, but there are various problems. First problem is the lack of grouping for selections, and many objects are locked (Selecting windows is a nightmare). Second problem are the normals along the pipes, wich are inverted on the bending joints. Third problem, the biggest one, is the lack of UV. Fourth problem, some pieces are probably missing or moved away from their origin.
I found pieces moved away (had to set up far clip on camera up to 2bilion units to see em).

I don't know if these problems are also present on the 3dsmax version of the scene.
I can try fix those issues and output a file for Maya users, but given the scene complexity it will take some time
it would be great if someone with 3dmax can export an OBJ version of the scene

Hello thanks for the feedback
I had checked the maya file but it seems still to have some problem, many thanks in advance if anyone can share a fixed version
there's the link for max file
"please be gentle I'm still learning.."

I would appreciate it if anyone could upload a max 2014 scene file.
  10 October 2014

can someone post a picture from the max-file, how the scene should look like?
Also had problems with the FBX.

Hello to All ! So what's going ? I've tested the obj and everything seems to work. Can anyone share also other format. If you have problem with fbx Please try obj.
@Prestonplatt where are you ?
"please be gentle I'm still learning.."
  10 October 2014
Where can I find the .obj file? I see links only for .fbx and .max
