[RELz] New Sheogorad Rocks by Ravanna

Will be working closely with Nahlo on his landscaping, eloth is the master of textures, with some additions by me, and I use zbrush to dynamesh many layers of slate into one object, then use a specific pro-optimisation method for ingame use.

None of these have AO vert colour, or detail overlays (ie, barnacles, moss)

the polycounts may be a bit high in palces, even with good use of LODing, so it needs testing.

Sheogorad consists of metamorphic slate pushed back up through the mantle, in the west, its more sharp, and as u go west the layers become thicker and turn to towers and menhirs of slate.

very much WIP.

 

 

 

 

Final image are unique slate sheogorad entrances for mines/caves.
Will be getting some other artists to help with the sheogorad velothi tomb entrance and other stuff.

watch this space

ok its been a while.

ok its been a while.

I'm currently finishing BC assets with scumpunx and felix, BC has about 150 new assets in total once all done and dusted. 
BC should then be our 1st main area where all environments/textures are entirely original content.

Meanwhile. back in sheo....

Nahlo and Squally should be having a bash at this area, Nahlo being the main landscaper for the west.

This is the geo map with slate directions and best assets to use.



I made a quick mock up of ald redaynia island using the western sheo assets and came up with this:



Being such a rocky area, The main formations begin with using the 2 mountain peaks of skyrim retextured, then we add hill tops, and mostly shard/menhirs, and seems to be the most efficient way of getting a very rocky land without mesh overkill.

This looks gorgeous and

This looks gorgeous and definitely sets it far apart visually from Azura's Coast. This is amazing work Ravanna, as always. I think some landscapers will be positively ecstatic to see the new assets :)
