Haha i know i've tried myself and am still currently customizing Altis for a post-apoc look and is coming along well as i do alot of map design! Would be happy to help if you needed any! anything to help you get this out quickly for everyone waiting! I am amazed by the screenshots you have left, looks amazing, guessing that is some sort of trader city? love how you did the lights aswell. Yeah i feel that the overgrown look plays a big part in the post-apoc feeling and atmosphere... Also maybe look at the new map with is in the new Arma 3 dlc think its called Tonoa, looks like a tropical map with dense jungles and ancient ruins but probs won't fit the post-apoc feeling, well depends? I noticed the Rest bar on the bottom left of the screenshots which is interesting, never seen it anywhere but you thinking of having a sleeping bag or finding a random bed in a house? Anyways if you need any help with map development or even custom models i could see if i could help! Again keep up with the great work dude!
Some of the work i have done on Altis.. Im not as good for the Ai setting up of things but would say im okay at making a overgrown, apocalypse look :) anyways thanks!
Morning,. I like the screen mate they look good. I am 100% going to give terrain building a miss as thats a huge time consumption and I just dont have that time. As for the screens i posted above its a settlement on a mountain top its not a traders town specificity its more multi purpose.
All the settlements will have shop/stores to buy and trade along with everything else needed to form an imersive world. The light started as just a test idea but it worked well so I have left it and will impliment similar effects throughout the game world.
Yes atmosphere is well.. essential. I feel it makes or brakes a game/mod it is so important .
Th rest bar
Yes this basically means sleep / energy it decreases over time while your awake
it decrease more if your running or fighting
it has sub effects so if your tired the vanilla fatigue system starts to kick in meaning you cant sprint for ever
and as the rest decreases more youll see screen effects (blur/shaking) representing extreme levels of tiredness.
to increase/replenish your rest you can
1. Find sleeping bags and set them up and select how long to sleep for,
This has its own problems as you can be robbed in your sleep
2. Buy sleeping bags from traders/shops
3. sleep in beds in the game world
4. or sleep on the ground (replenishes much slower and you get cold (hot cold system in development))
If you let the rest drop to Exhausted you will pass out and again may be robbed.
Custom models you say... How about some buildings? or small items like food? Think you could do something like that ?
