hiya.  glad to find yoos awake. 

2am snack time?  smile  reheated pizza?

*waves* home from work early, and only three more sleeps until no work at all for the rest of the year yay smile


Life’s a beach. lol, or pool smile

really wants a couple of weeks of beach and bay, is up to the weather now we’ll have to see. I’m resigned to working flat out through February *sigh* But it feels like one of those classic Aussie hot endless summer coming. A bit more anxious about fires this year is the only downside, more so than the past couple of years.


i think, we’re closer to the sun right now, on spaceship mother earth.  and you have the longer daylight hours, iz double jeopardy.

All the emergency fire warning alerts on radio and TV aren’t very helpful either smile  Is getting near the anniversary of the big fire, I’m a lot more jumpy and miserable about it than I was on the first few anniversaries, think that’s strange.

Straighten out the straps (To make it easier to put logos / writing along them)... also straighten out the seam of the pants (again, to make it easier to align things down them).  Align the pocket sides to be “up-down” (ditto).

Or ignore me wink.

Okay, I had a play…

Reduced the curves as much as I could… Relax seems to want it slightly curved in areas… But overall, it’s some what reduced.

I cant straighten the seam on the pants any more because it is actually curved in the geometry with the fabric flow. If I do, ‘relax’ distorts the pants heaps with rippling distortions all over the place. It’s as straightened as I can get it at this stage I’m afraid.

Here’s the reduction of the straps smile

Straps look good now (^_^)d… could you rotate the pockets in the lower-right to be more “up-down”, and straighten up the seven tabs underneath them as well.  (wow thread is moving along…)

...just about to head to bed.  Workday tomorrow.  My vacation request was approved so after this week have nine days to kick back, relax and finish setting everything up on the new workstation. Then it’s render city baby.

Packers won. Now in sole possession of the NFC “Norris” div with three games left in the season.

Stopped off and got some of my favourite Korma Curry Chicken on the way home.  Tad expensive but oh so good and the prefect preventive medicine for all the viruses that are going around.

Had a little hot cocoa to close out the evening and now ready for a good night’s sleep.

...nity nite all.

...it’s five minutes to midnight…

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

<(^_^)... you always say the nicest things Ps1… I must learn from the Master m(_._)m…

Back to Spyro - here’s a suggestion of the parts I’m talking about - straightening up the pieces in the lower-right corner…  I’m surprised you can’t “straighten” the thick white lines (which I’m assuming are the seams on the outer edge of the pants) to be closer to the red ones, without affecting the geometry.  You’re not permitted to adjust the UV-map independent of the mesh?

(my $0.022, now with added GST wink

I can, but there will be distortion. The white line (The seam) is actually curled like that in the mesh. The UV is flat, that part (Main pants surface) of the UV was flattered cylindrically (The only way I could get it to work with minimal distortion). Here is a rotation of it in perspective view. - While the UV is slightly exaggerating the curve, there is actually a curve.

I dont really have the skill to straighten the seam beyond the current. I cant relax the UV of the pants, as it distorts the bulk of it with jagged zig zags (I dont know why, and I dont know how to fix it either). Mr UV does not play nice with me at all lol.

The pockets - More so the sides are also angled in the design. It follows the pattern of common ski pants smile

I keep researching so I can learn how to fix these things lol tongue laugh

Hmmm… I see.  I must admit I’m not too familiar with “soft” object mapping (nor ski pants, for that matter wink - I should step aside and let someone else make suggestions as to what would be easiest to texture <(^_^).

G’night (~_~)n

Thanks for all your help and encouragement MFM! smile

I think my skill is whats holding me back… Max is huge and very much advanced lol Most tutorials only cover low poly objects… beyond low poly things seem so much more mind boggling lol

I just so glad I was even able to unwrap it all in the first place haha!

Oh no! It’s Monday morning! Wait…I’m retired. (shrug) Just another morning. Off to the local Hardees for breakfast with the other old retired guys and a nice session of griping about how ungrateful the younger generation is and stuff.
Ah…good times.
