While I like the reflections on the shiny floor, it does seem a bit incongruous with the sprites not being included and or blocking the reflections. The only thing that I can think of off hand is a 2nd view upside down and flipped with a dithered transparent color to create a reflection that follows the ego view, but that sounds needlessly complicated. You could always ignore it or tone down the reflection to not be so noticeable.

Eliminating the reflections was already considered, along with more goofy shit on the walls. Thanks for the opinion, though. And the thing about remaking the Gmod-based screens?

I definitely think this scene looks a little better than the GMod stuff. They can both work though. Your call.

It's super easy to do with Companion though :-) (flipping a view and applying a transparent dither). And just one small script on the reflection View to match the ego's x/y. Might not look good though.

The scene looks better than the GMod ones. And I like the more saturated colors better.

Forget reflections, I just removed them altogether :)



Tomorrow, I'll try to redo the Country Road scene.

Nice fan animation!

KQ1SCI pulled it off nicely I think. And that was EGA. Course, it was water.

Trees and car look really great. Road maybe needs a better texture?

Asphalt texture got stretched along with the road segments. I'd have to increase the tiling to compensate. Perhaps I'll render two passes, one of them painted white, so I can mask in lines.

Okay, how's this?

Road lines look too long.  Maybe half the length?

Well, that's the beauty of masks. I could make them wobble if I wanted to :)

Thanks. There's just one problem: Noxico won the "what shall I work on" poll on Twitter so I'm honorbound to work on that until next Friday, instead of this.

Note to self for afterwards: mask out shorter lines, look into alternatives for car, look into credits slowdown, fix exiting from closeup.
