corrugated metal iswrong

Post by cdoublejj »

EDIT:before you post know that this ties in to, http://wasteland.inxile-entertainment.c ... f=7&t=3363

the scale/proportions on the corrugated metal is waayyy of the each wave is size of an NPC/character's head, with most corrugated metal each wave should be a little bigger than the size of a human thumb or about 1inch. :P

what makes it really weird is how few "waves" there are as compare to the width.

see ^

it's not really "wrong" but, it does looks weird and catches my eye every time.

It's the bottom type. You get even wider ones but they tend to be non standard or angular.

EDIT: Actually looking closer it might actually be the angular type:

Although I couldn't care less about the corrugated things, the devil is in the details.

it's definitely not the bottom type look how angular it is it also beads running down the center, and the bottom one, on the first pic you posted is not symmetric so it can't be that one either, each side of the "hump" is a different length and angle.

Yes it is.

It's definately the angular sheets. I can tell, because I looked at it.

wow damn I thought those were wooden fence portions. They clearly are not. And yes, there isn't enough humps. Probably related to wanting to keep poly counts low for some god awful reason.

Could still be wood. Wood tends to come from cylindrical sources.

Yeah. Can't imagine why they'd do that...

If you look around at all products you will, eventually, find something that looks like this in the real world.

Here: http://www.duchesne.ca/english/gamme/acier.php

Enjoy the different options. At least one of those options is very similar.

When I saw the stuff in the screenshot it looked good to me. :) I'm totally fine with how it is and wouldn't bother wasting resources into "fixing" it since I don't think it is broken. Plus, I found real world equivalencies that look extremely similar and who knows how things were built in the mid-80s of Arizona or California.

So, if it bugs you enough I give you this guideline to live by: Because alternate reality.

while i agree, it's not all the common. also it catches the eye for some reason, glaring at me, mocking me. :lol:

This is the biggest i could find. as you can see each hump/wave is not muhc bigger than the door handle.

Larger corrugated metal sheets were a secret coldwar project in the Wasteland setting.

i haven't the slightest clue. perhaps they don't want any body to see this thread and are trying to cover it up by hiding it in another section. :lol:

Awesome thread. :D It's definitely wood, not metal - just look at the colour! Either made of long, vertical sticks of wood, or some kind of weird bended planks.

So what? Corrugated metal can't be stylized?

it could also be rusty and dirty metal. if it was wood it more than likely be way thicker.

can you elaborate what you said, to me, given the way i understand things, sounds vague.

Though normally I agree with details.
In the case of resolution this might be a necessary evil.

The lines essentially would be so small it wouldn't be recognizable at that point.
Infact it might just end up a single solid color

It's not that thin, actually, in scale to the rangers' heads. ;-) It's not noticeably thinner than the grey fence in front of it, which is definitely wood. There are also vertical, dark lines on the surface, which could be gaps between different pieces of wood, or just the natural grain the wood has. In either case, that's not a charasteristic that would appear on a tin fence. It doesn't look like rust or dirt to me at all; there are some rusted metal things in the bottom-left corner of the same screenshot, and those look totally different.

Nevermind, the fact it's wavy like that is bothersome anyway. I tried googling for similar applications of wood, but I couldn't find anything really alike. Very mysterial...
