In this series of tutorials we will cover how to create vegetation for games. To begin we'll start out small by creating grass. We'll discuss a workflow that will allow us to create a very specific look by using splines to shape our grass. After that we'll learn how to bake our textures and how to assemble them for use in the Unity game engine. After that we'll learn how to create a low polygon tree. We'll go through the process of modeling, sculpting, and texture our tree. We'll also look at a method used to create branches. Finally, we'll end the course by learning how to add our grass and tree into the terrain system in Unity. Software required: 3ds Max 2014, Mudbox 2014, Photoshop CS4, Unity 4.3.
Joshua is a devoted games author at Pluralsight. For years Joshua was a key author behind Digital-Tutors' (now a Pluralsight company) popular game engine training. As a kid, he had a passion for playing video games, which eventually developed into a fascination with the process of game creation. The question of "How'd they do that?" led Joshua on a quest to learn to make these games himself. Ever since then, Joshua has devoted his life to creating games, as well as teaching others to build their own fantastic video games.
