:: And abstract render.

It's ok, nothing really amazing though.

true but i was really just fiddling around with the reflections settings and stuff. ive got a better version in production but i have to wait until i get a better computer to render it. it looks much better larger as you can see all the details.

its alright, but im sure you can imrove the textures somewhat without decreasing the performance hit, it looks better that way.

Well, AOE is an isometric topdown real-time strategy game, so the units are pretty small. The siege tower is scaled down alot in the actual game, so any higher resolution would go to waste anyway.

yeah well you ever played empire earth? They did that but it looked crap because they forgot to increase the textures and when you zoomed in like you can do in AOE III you got a mush that was horrible, its much nicer to gamers when they can zoom in and get the textures and all in full detail, they also praise the work rather than shrugging at it.

Hey! I just got blender and it's confusing as fuck. I searched google for tuts but didn't find any good ones that would explain the basics. Seeing as a lot of these pieces are really good, I wanted to ask if someone could show me some good tuts about the basics. Thanks in advance!

www.blender.org has a few tutorials to get you started. You can also check out the Blender IRC channel #blender, it's on the freenode network

Also, that siege tower wasn't for AOE III, I clearly stated that it was for AOE II, and stated it is isometric, meaning that it is 2D with an orthographic view to simulate 3D.

yeah it is confusing, the tutorials are on www.blender.org and wikipedia although wikipedia is out of date, also look on google, here are some links:
http://www.blender.org/tutorials-help/tutoria ls/
http://www.blender.org/tutorials-help/python/

http://www.blender.org/tutorials-help/manuals -books/
http://www.blender.org/tutorials-help/video-t utorials/
http://www.blender.org/tutorials-help/
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Blender_3D:_Noob _to_Pro
http://www.tutorialized.com/tutorials/Blender -3d/1
that should be enough for any noob to find what theyre after

thanx umm yeah thestar... couldn't work out how to make it include that in the render due to the type of object it was.

and the AOE siege ram, ICREASE the textures!!! haven't you seen the detail of teh AOE II engine, they're jpgs all of them and high quality too, you have to increase the textures for that!

not bad for a twenty minute mock up, you could smoothen out the polys and adda little bit of lighting, mebe a small amount of reflection to make it nicer.

u should add more bump mapping and normals so that the textures stand out more, also it looks.... well... kinda sterile if ya kno wat i mean, add a teddy adn some odered chaos to the room and you almost have a house you could live in.

srry normals, in Blender theres a setting called nor which stands for normals, this means that you can make the texture go 3D rather than flat allowing for easier rendering of things like water etc.

not really except that this is specifically for textures whereas bump mapping is more for pictures placed on the object.
