Everyone please get back on topic.  Do not start a flame war on this forum, it's disrespectful to the thread starter, and childish as well.

Back on topic, I hope you can get the saloon file working with your computer.  It had good potential.

I got my computer to work *YAY*  Well here is the latest version of my saloon and like I said I will take c & c on it so have at it ;D
Also what is the easiest way to make a chain link so I have something to hold up the signs and I also dont like how the barrel turned out so i will fix it any ideas on how to do that and to top it all off I forgot to add windows :-[  one more thing, this render uses scaline and when I tried ART I got these unnecessary shadows how do I get rid of them?    So what do you think


ENJOY ;D

RnDr FOX, nice progress there on the saloon.  It'd be nice to see more than just a front view though, perhaps a perspective view?  The door looks better, but the roof still needs to be raised up a good deal.  The building size needs to be increased as well.  Think about walking in there, right now, one person could fit through the door, then one person on the right and one on the left.  That's not much room considering there's probably a bar inside.  That would be a pretty cramped saloon!  So I'd advise you increase the wall sizes by a lot.  Remember you want to keep this realistically sized to a human.

Now, as for your question about chain links, I'd go about it by just copy/pasting and rotating.  So you can create a single simple chain link, then rotate it 90 degrees around the y-axis.  Then move it down to where it would rest on the previous link.  You can then copy/paste this double link, and drag it down again, you can continue this until you have a length you want.  That would by my method.

As for the ART renderer, shadows are default right now, Steve forgot to turn them off.  So, in the next Anim8or update they shouldn't be automatically on.  But, sadly right now, the shadows will stay.

For a chain you can use the torus-plugin at the scripts link left. When using the method hihosilver suggested it will give you a nice chain, a bit high poly maybe. A good transmap will do too if it isnt to much at the foreground.
The saloon look fine, but the proportions seem a bit of. Take a good look at reference images of saloon like this one: http://www.jolly-jumper.nl/saloon3.gif .

a good way to make individual chain links is to use the torus script and the non-uniform scale tool to make kind of a hollow elipse then use hihosilvers method.
if you don't have the torus script then click Build>primitives>N-gon enter a value of 30-60 then draw out the circle of how large you want the diameter of the chain link to be. now draw another N-gon using the same method make this one as large as you want the chain link to be click Build>extrude then select path in the "axis" box then click ok and click the larger circle. your chain like should appear if you cant figure out how to do this i can make and post a small chain.

Good Saloon there! The textures are good, like the title! The black behind the doors is my only crit, you could change that for an image or something showing the interior of the building. :)

Nice saloon and name you got there FOXY. Here is a chain I made a while back I will mail it to you.
It may be a bit on the large side but it should scale down ok.


Just an idea: If you've got a Wii check out Rayman Raving Rabbids it has a mini game where you shoot plungers in a western style town and has some great cowboy towns, buildings and scenes.
May help, may not, may be worth a look, If I can get some screen shots I'll post them.

Ok I am real sorry that I have not been updating my highly anticipated saloon :P I haven't had a whole lot of time to work on it since it is almost the end of the school year and a lot has been going on so here is just a real quick work that I have done on it. I will post more pics like from different angles and wire frame and much more. I just did this real quick to see if I got the proportions right so don't worry this weekend I will post much more pics with much more progress, so tell me if I finally got the proportions right this time since that is the only thing i am really aiming for in this post. Also are the windows ok or do they need some work?
 


ENJOY ;D

It's looking better every time.
For the windows I would suggest to make them 3 panes wide and narrow the space in between.
Also the windows texture, which is really nice, should be shifted so as to show a frame around the panes and moved upwards to avoid the little bits at the top and show a full pane at the bottom..

i agree with lynn22 about the windows, maybe also make them semi-transparent (might want to make a trans map to keep the frames opaque)?  also the roof still looks quite low.

looking forward to seeing more angles :)

Good progress but still what about the black behind the door, I think it would look wads better with an image behind it. It gives a sense of atmosphere so to say, makes it look more real

Yes onespirit5777, but to make it in the world, also to make it in any business you need to come off professionally.  Nobody will consider hiring you if "u strt tlking lyke this."  Neither will people respect you.  Speaking that way you sound younger and less experienced.  If you put on a professional image, people will treat you more professionally and with more respect.  That's a reason to not blow off English class as well.  Perhaps you wont be writing full fledged essays in the future, but the class teaches you to write professionally for when you're in the business world even if all you're doing is writing up your portfolio or sending an email to a potential client.

Nice progress Foxy

You could maybe add an interior to give the model added depth and make it visable through the saloon doors.

Looking good  ;D
