I see that this type of shape looks like something you could "easily" do with geometry. But even then models can be very useful. Imagine you want to get some rotated versions, that's super tedious with geometry, and the reason for models like grates and wooden palettes.FaTony wrote:Are these models?

Im not really sure if there's any map that could use it at the moment, but here it is, if someone feels like using it. ~400 verts.

If you can get me some reference photos of a particular design and post it in this thread, yes, i believe it can be made.

SniperGoth wrote:Something like this, or should i make it have more details (the sphere thing in the bottom is the origin of the model, so it will be easier to spin)?
It sits at around 250 verts at the moment.

For example, let's take Mikeplus64's goop jar, it has some nice color gradient patches with some weird shaders that make it look cool no matter how you scale it. I'd love to see something similar, without the alpha stuff around, and with a simple shape that matches its bounding box. Is that an easy thing for you to do? Could be pretty cool for mode-specific blockers, like a force field.
