Materials, Decals and Painting - Dev Blog #5
Updated: Apr 14
In Techblox we will be implementing several tools which can be used by the player (These may be shown as tools which are held by the in game character). There are three so far:
- The Colour Paint Tool - The Decal Paint Tool - The Material Paint Tool.
Today we’re going to go into a little more detail into the ‘Material Paint Tool’. Now, this is one of the more powerful tools at your disposal because using it can affect not only the visual look of the blocks, but also its physics properties. The material, bounciness and density are all defined by materials that you paint on your vehicles. Doing it this way will allow us to support a large array of shapes and materials, even subtle variants of materials like ‘Steel and ‘Rusty Steel’ or ‘Aluminium’ and ‘Brushed Aluminium’
