      Your texture in on both sides of the label, the back should be plain. Plus the texture is overlapping and could probably be less stretcher out. You have the right idea for lighting but you need to change the values. Look up some 3 point lighting.

        not him but i get jars all the time that have transparent plastic labels instead of paper, so you can read the reverse print on the backside when the jars empty.

          A random doodle is an idea. It doesn't have any function at that point, just like thinking up a cool scenario in your head or on paper with no structure yet as to what it's for.

            a random doodle or a "cool scenario on paper" may be of little worth in the grand scheme of things, but it is a concrete physical thing that can be discussed or saved or explored
            sketches and notes and hummed melodies are infinitely more valueable than an ephemeral idea that remains bound inside your head
            these things are also not enough to actually proerly make a thing, but some "idea guys" don't even get that far

              I mean depends what your definition of idea guy is. Like someone who literally thinks up an idea and doesn't even tell someone what is in their head, then yea obviously it wont go anywhere. But script writers and even comedians are "idea guys" that only go as far as typing their thoughts out or speaking them out loud. If you were in a company or performance group and your boss asked for new concepts or ideas to be thrown out, you would be doing the work of an idea guy. I just hate this knee jerk term of "idea guy" as an insult when literally everything creative starts out that way.

                "idea guy" as an insult probably stems from people who only daydream and then have the gall to say "my idea is too valueable to post, you might steal it", or act as if they have anything to contribue as a director while having 0 practical skills, they just need artgays and code monkeys and soundcloud rappers to realize their gorillion dollar idea
                i suppose it's similar to the difference between creating art and indulging the idea of yourself as an artist -- pure wank to satisfy your ego or crippling lack of discipline
                can't comment on creative jobs, but i don't imagine brainstorming sessions are the only thing that projessional writers do, "typing out your thoughts" means giving them concrete shape, and words never sound quite as clever on paper as they do in your head

    I don’t daydream about it I don’t want to make games, I have a good career lol. If I started making games I’d probably hate them because then it becomes work. Most people daydream about making games for the same reason they daydream about winning the lottery: they hate their life and feel like they have no control over it. Additionally they feel like they shouldn’t have to work a “real job” anymore (but everyone else should have to).

          Today my day was also once again ruined by going on Ganker. If you realistically want to increase the chance of doing productive work you should block Ganker and youtube all day and not even visit Ganker on the shitter. If that is not possible you should never post on Ganker. Posting on Ganker makes you committed to the threads and makes you check if someone replied.

          I know linguistics isn't directly correlated to blender skill but god I can't take listening to these dumbasses sometimes.

      Yeah, well, it IS difficult to find quality learning material. It takes effort making it, and also the system is against you in that it pays more ad money for a longer watch time, so there are incentives for the pajeets making 10min videos for things that can be explained really well within 1min.

      my tip is to avoid any tutorials made by westerners. 90% of the time they are a grifter trying to sell you their course. you'll learn some things from them, sure, but their main goal is to make money, not to teach. they themselves are amateurs who chose a career of grifting instead of 3dcg.

      instead look up tutorials made by asians. chinese, korean, or japanese. you'll find professional artists who just want to show you how to do things. and those who are grifting will have an actual professional course to sell, not some lame ass shit on skillshare.

                Gamedev code is incredibly generic, you are not working on the cutting edge of computer science when coding inventory system #523465 or melee-hit-detection #43523634. 99% of game dev code is basically solved, it's just a question of putting it together and fine tuning stuff. Unreal and Unity could bake 90% of all gameplay features into their engines and just let you pick what to implement with tick boxes, the only reason why they don't do it is because it's more profitable to sell code on the market place.

    Used to have a lot of strange and creative ideas. Even the utterly mundane would inspire something in that felt almost surreal. I had a million ideas for everything. Then some bad shit happened in my life and I left a very creative community I was a part of and I got job after that and I could quite literally feel that creativity dying over the course of a year. It's such a strange feeling to experience. It's like something in you is being choked to death. Now I don't see anything and knowing how things used to be and comparing it to now? Horrible feeling. You think you know what emptiness feels like but trust me, it can get so much worse.

        I did. While I understand them they no longer make the same sense to me. Creativity is a lot more complex than just having ideas. You feel it as much as you think it. Without the feeling you're not really doing something coherent and connected anymore. You're just doing something strange. It makes the difference between something creative and something trying to be creative.

          That's not creativity, you're speaking about passion. Creativity is a hard to grasp concept and creativity is easily mistaken with passion because one often leads to another. When you feel you are really creative the dopamine hits and you feel really passionate. When you are passionate you become really engaged which leads to creativity.

          From your first post you are obviously describing some form of depression which completely kills any dims of passion, which leads to having no creativity. I hate depressed cucks and it's pointless to talk to depressed people.

            No, I understand the difference between the two and how they do follow each other like that. The passion died and then I could feel the creativity die.

    I spent a dozen of hours on this vertex normal problem. I got a second hidden mesh that is only the flower, so I can transfer its normals directly to the whole model. On the left is the whole model with a clear seam between the body and the flower, and on the right the seamless result I want, while the data transfer modifier exists. But no matter how I tweak it, applying the modifier will revert the mesh back to what it looks like on the left. I hate that Blender always brings new headaches to the table

      Sounds like that worked out in this situation.
      For normals you can also try to mark sharp edges and use auto smooth which let's you tweak the amount of smoothing, and angle cut off. Also the abnormal add-on is a must if you really need full control with custom normals

          Then game dev is not for your. Even when making your dream game you would have to compromise dozens of times and without fresh ideas you can't compensate with anything.

          Game dev is about a constant stream of new ideas. That system will take literally 2 years to develop? Oh I have an idea how to make something simpler that may be just as fun. Constant compromise and reinventing yourself, these are must have skills as a solo dev that actually releases shit. These people that never want to compromise and never try to reimagine their ideas? Never going to release anything, simple as.

          You are basically also just another moron that doesn't want to compromise. Neither do you want to make a shit version of your game which is not possible to begin with since video game dev is an iterative process to begin with, and neither do you want to compromise with reinventing your approach.

      1. Never assume your fate is immutable because that's a self fulfilling prophecy and it will stop your brain from thinking up solutions.
      2. Actually experiment and try new solutions. Document how well they worked. It's fine to implement only tiny adjustments. Many small improvements will quickly sum up.
      3. Meditation is a god tier habit to make your stone brain malleable. Just 10 minutes every day will do wonders. Also scientifically proven one of the very few things you can actually actively do to improve your brain.

      Just doing step 1 will do wonders for your psyche.

      the other point i wanna make is ive found that you cant get anything from having a video on while playing video games. youre essentially not even really watching the video. you have to be actively focusing on what the video is saying to absorb it, that goes for tutorials and shit.

    literally where do you start? my only programming experience is making a shitty command line calculator in college. I can't draw or paint and I've never made a 3D model. I'm tired of ignoring my feelings but I really don't know if I'm cut out for it. I give up on shit easily but I'm tired of giving up on shit and having regret constantly. I just don't know even where to begin. it's so complicated and multifaceted.

    I feel like if I had to work in games it'd probably be leveraging my strong math and algorithm skills in the technical side of things like a graphics programmer.
    no grand project ambition or artistry but reading white papers and using applied math for games seems like a rewarding challenge.

    for a long time the roughest thing was thinking up an idea that i actually cared enough about to motivate myself to commit to for longer than it took to think up. i recently finally came up with a concept, setting, characters, all of that shit like a bolt from the blue & the struggle has suddenly turned into not letting it escape while i try to grind out the basics of learning shit i don't know & it's harder than expected. even just writing down the things i came up with makes me feel like a fricking moron for some reason because it's not something most people would probably say is "worth" all the effort it'll require. how do i stop feeling like a fricking moron long enough to commit to this shit?

        you could always write a whole ass story and sell it online if you can't into vidya

        i guess you're right but atm i can only really envision it non-linearly because half of the point is to be something you can just chill out doing & only interacting with the characters you like. like I don't see how someone could novelise a game like stardew valley without it coming off as a limited, fanfictiony romance novel mainly involving a single character by necessity instead of the whole living town with the choice to get to know whoever interests you the most, you know?

      Focus super hard on one thing until it's done so you have at least one cool thing all done that's cool to look at and to build off of. Right now I'm doing my game's turn based combat system prototype in php. If I at least finish that then at least I made one thing that could have been implemented in a game.

      Really depends on how you learn best. You should start by downloading them and Visual Studio or VS Code and see if you can stomach Unity's free tutorials or read the documentation. The 10 hour Code Monkey tutorial on YouTube is really good but it's extremely dense and doesn't go over 2D but if you're only planning on using 3D it's not a problem.

    Ok, but honestly, do a game alone is fricking hard. Is a lot of different skills to master, from writting, to code, modelling, animating, art and music.

    Thats said, you can find people that have the complementary skills or you can focus in your strong point and learn just the basics of the other things. Notch are a brilliant programeer so does the most shitass graphics in a game with no music. And Toby Fox are best at music and code, so came with black and white pixel art, etc.

          Depends on what you're going for. Body tracking is for natural animations, like standing, walking, running, crouching. It's also great for interaction animations if you can't quite into inverse kinematics

    I have an idea for a game in my head. I've been adding to said idea for about a year now, and to me and every person I've shared it with it's incredibly good. Issue is though, I have zero drawing, audio, or dev skills and I've become very lazy. I started playing a game a while ago and it's taken over my entire life. Now, obviously the answer is to limit the amount of time I spend playing this game so I can actually turn the idea into a reality, but I've found a friend group around the game and they've become my only friends since I didn't have any prior to all of this. So I can't exactly stop doing this because I'm addicted to this social aspect I've never felt before. I don't know what to do. This idea for the game is something I really want to make but I'm stuck in this perpetual cycle and I don't want to miss out on my friend group, even though realistically I'm only playing the game for maybe 4-5 hours max per day.

      Problem with thinking about a game too much beforehand is endless scope-creep without any hold on reality, on what's possible with your very limited time and resources. I actively _avoid_ adding anything new to my game idea until i've finished what I've been working on this far

      unreal has those blueprint things which lets you do some basics without ever programming
      maybe you'll learn logic by using them too, who knows

      >but have zero coding knowledge? I'd love to make a 3d game with a strong focus on physics and momentum but programming is just techno sorcery to me
      Go to bluestacks or whatever forum and let the saps half do the work for you. And try to find a free template for a platformer, or buy one, and mangle that to make it close to your vision.

      it is just a bunch of commands like move this sprite to the right when this button is pressed, change this sprite for this other one when these two touch, etc.

      >I'd love to make a 3d game
      can be reasonable
      >with a strong focus on physics and momentum
      That's the part where not being able to do coding and math will frick you.
      You can "cheat" momentum based gameplay without a strong focus on physics by doing appropriate hand crafting. Look at Pizza Tower. That shit barely has any real physics and just has you switch between different speed states and yet it's fun as frick

      if you can't get your head around programming I don't see how you can even attempt a strong physics focus

    I can program, draw, make 3D models, and even make music.
    Somehow the only projects I've ever completed are management applications for work, and some small shitty games I made just for trolling.
    I usually put in a lot of effort for a week or two, then just drop everything. Any special pills I can take for this shit?

      take a huge project, break it into parts, do each part separately, keep track of your progress to not get lost, switching tasks helps alleviate the boredom of routine

      go to fiver
      find the woman with the voice you find most acceptable and hire her.
      or use AI

      First determinine all the voicelines you wanna do beforehand.
      Then just go to twitter or some shit and look for some amateur voice actress and check if they do commissions.
      Then just negotiate a price for the amount of work.
      Consider how many dudes doing Porn SFMs manage to find someone doing voice for them so you'll be fine.

        You may as well suggest he cut his own dick off and do the voice himself at that point.

      CG Fast Track has recently uploaded a new Blender course on YouTube
      This is BY FAR the best free Blender tutorial I've seen on YT

      And from the looks of it, it was made for people with ADHD so even a complete idiot should be able to understand it

      Make music for those troonys on Doomworld, they take literally anything. There's a moron called PROXY-Midi or something like that, he used to have a different name. Made the absolute most dogshit MIDIs I've ever heard in my entire life and people still accepted his crap. They have no quality standards in that shithole.

      if you work with weights a lot get the weight shaper addon, it makes everything a lot easier. it's 30 bucks (or 40, I don't remember) but it's easily worth it.

        This looks like it would fit my workflow perfectly, thanks for the tip!

        godamn make some porn man thats hot

        That's the plan.

        Word of caution - a lot of game engines hate scaling bones and can't deal with that so that tongue might look very different ingame.

        I learned that the hard way, I don't think I'll be messing with scale outside of blender tbh

    People forget that video games are made by teams who are skilled in one specific area. There's the odd solo indie dev that makes it big but that's the exception, not the rule. Trying to be a "jack of all trades" will usually lead to mediocre results that will be forgotten even if you manage to shit something out.

    i was following a really long course on ue5 but kind of stopped halfway through because for the sake of the course it was just an extremely shitty, generic, open world rpg """souls-like""" clone asset flip using quixel megascans. it was so soulcrushing to follow along knowing the end product would make me want to vomit, even if for the sake of learning how to gamedev in ue5.
    ill probably pick it back up someday, but for now im just focusing on trying to nail down an environment and artistic style.
    its a lot harder than i thought. i dont struggle with character design and modeling but the environment, like foliage and stuff, is giving me trouble. no foliage i make or use seems to fit, it all looks out of place. and its very important because theres a mimic character that needs to blend in with the foliage very well so that even the player wont notice it at first.
    sorry for the blogpost
