Sketchup Object/Xpack requests????

Discussion in 'Bob's Track Builder' started by Chris Mackenzie, Jul 2, 2010.

  1. Seeing as most other BTB things seem to have a "requests" thread I thought it only fair that we start a "SKETCHUP OBJECTS REQUEST"

    List things you would like to see made and Xpacked for use in BTB -hopefully some of the very skilled Sketchup users will take on the challenge of making the requests....

  2. I need Eiffel Tower... No, just kiddin' :D
    But the thread is good one!
     
  3. Buildings, buildings, buildings..... :D
     
  4. We could do with things like race control towers, varying from very advanced (similar to air traffic control towers) to simple, like a raised platform with a simple roof. Marshal posts would also be useful. Things like that.
     
  5. Excellent idea for a thread. Maybe some Bridge/Overpass type structures, similar to oran park, suzuka ect.
     
  6. Wasn't the Eiffel Tower in the Paris track that was up for download about a year ago? So, with permission, you could probably have it!!!
     
  7. I was kiddin' really about the Eiffel :) I like Sketchup enough, if you attach some photos of buildings etc., I could try to make them (if I have some free time, I'm quite busy lately). I guess the most wanted are low poly objects?

  9. I can't promise now, maybe I'll try some day that church. I also found Sketchup not very friendly for making cars ;)

    Ok thanks a lot!
     
  11. LOL:D
     
  12. That's quite easy to do actually^^ , you could make each part a separate object and create a complex object in Xpacker to join them all into one. What would be fun is to try it with a brick wall :D But make it those big cement bricks, not little ones.

    A brick wall would be pretty easy for me to do. Just tell me the dimensions of the brick, and how to make it a complex object or whatever.
     
  14. would anyone like to have a crack at this?
    would be hugely appreciated if you could. anything other than models i can help with (not sure what that could be! gps? photoshop? textures) hit me up!

    Managed an easy brick, and I piled them up into a wall on a test track in BTB. I set the bricks to Collideable and Moveable. I can drive into them in rFactor and the wall falls down brick by brick (can't think of another way of saying it). However, what used to be 50FPS (on my terrible PC) became about 8-9. Then the framerate stabilised once the wall had finished collapsing. The texture for the bricks is the default white from Google SketchUp. Any ideas?
     
  16. no idea if i can help, but x-packer defines 2 diffrent kinds of movable (sign and cone) are there other options that govern the objects collide behaviour that you could edit?

    i accidentally made a pile of haybales moveable with 'cone' option, man, that was hillarious. kind of wish i made a video of it! was like a super energetic chain reaction of exploding, spinning, leaping (100m) haybales ...! lol

    cheers

  17. Textures and dimensions. I had a go at making the first one, but I only roughly set the proportions, and I only guessed as to how many arches there are. 10 or 12?

    The required dimensions are as shown here:
    dims.jpg

    How close are the objects to the track? If they're only really in the background we can take a few liberties, but if they are quite close then some detail may be needed.
     
  18. hmmm, dimensions eh!?

    12 arches, id say 7m overall dia, perhaps 5m high (h1) and 3m to the eve (h2). arch height ballpark 2.5m (h3) and w1 around 1.0-1.2m. w2 would be a guess??

    ill make up some textures today :)

    this object is close to the track, but is off to the side as you approach a difficult corner apex, so you wont be looking 'at' it

  20. Could someone make a temporary wall and fence SObject? I'm making a street circuit and don't want to use walls for the barriers, because it would be easier to use SObjects (Don't have to cap every wall or copy/paste cross sections all the time).

    If someone wants to try it, I'd like it to be similar to the ones used at Australian street circuits, I don't know the dimensions and can't find any with Google, so other rFactor tracks could be used as a guide. It would be great if the vertical poles in the debris fencing were 3D, as well.

    Anyone want to help me?
