Title: 2001 - 2008 RM 250 (WIP)
Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on June 12, 2016, 10:25:00 pm
Edit: have updated the title as I think this shape ran from 01 to 08 at least. Either way any differences were subtle and it will be released as just RM250 with no specific year attached.

Hey all, first model in Blender. Going pretty well so far!

This has to be my favorite bike of all time, not necessarily the year but I was able to find a few good reference pictures of the 2003 and the frame also looked easier to build over the 2001.

Hope some of you out there will get some enjoyment out of this once it's released!

It's the 1st of my favourite bikes of all of time with no doubt. Thank you!

Don't you feel like the current default 2-stroke sound is not realistic for a 250? It's more like a 50cc?

Actually all it is, is that I hadn't fixed the mesh to give it sharper edges. Just spent an hour cleaning it up

Never, you know we can't! You look the kind of person that plays Fifa, Nba or whatever 1vs1 game and says: I'd never played this game...and then beats you! I know the people like you. 8) 8) ;) ;)

Have you used blender before? If your answer is no I give up with my models.For sure.

Edit: Short explaining: you look the kind of person that can get use to a program or something easily. Sometimes I don't know how understandable is my English.lol.

Haha it's OK..

Yeah I guess I pick software up pretty quickly, but always assume it's going to be harder than it actually is.

Sorry, this is my first time using Blender, only 3d experience previously was SketchUp which is a world apart, but please don't stop making models ;) I love the KX!

Dont worry, I won't stop! I'm doing it slower with the KX500 but I want to do a better model and more detailed parts.

Definitely worth it.. I've gone back (again) and cleaned up a bunch of stuff.. So many poly's I didn't need floating around, the more you do the more you learn huh..

Hows this mesh looking?

Post by: Snappe on June 14, 2016, 01:16:21 pm
The only thing I would suggest is to keep your polys a uniform size (see pic)

Looking good though! Very good for a first model!
Title: Re: 2003 RM 250 (WIP)
Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on June 14, 2016, 01:34:21 pm
Thanks Snappe! Trying my best here :D

Weirdly it's easier to work with after removing  more of the overly complicated geometry I did when I first built parts. When I made them originally I couldn't get the shapes right but after minimising its a lot easier to shape so I guess maybe less is more sometimes!
Title: Re: 2003 RM 250 (WIP)
Post by: pacopastor34 on June 14, 2016, 01:42:38 pm
Looking very good mate!! I'm agree with Snappe said. It's better to do uniform edges distance. If you want to keep a shape, try adding a new edge by knife tool.(I think that is its name in blender)
Title: Re: 2003 RM 250 (WIP)

Thanks  8)

Hands down the hardest part of this model so far the underside of the rear fender. Number plates now line up, just need to apply the mirror modifier so I can shape the right plate for the exhaust, other than that sweet as a nut  ;D

Currently sitting at a modest 13,000 tri's.

(https://i.gyazo.com/313e951e6a387846d3d86509142ce0f4.png)

\/ Below, right plate sticks out more IRL due to shape for exhaust which I've not done yet  ;)

I'm wondering why none of us hadn't seen it... :o

Guys, Do you all use the regular rightclick selection in blender or maybe do you use a different layout for selection?
Title: Re: 2003 RM 250 (WIP)
Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on June 16, 2016, 01:16:22 pm
I switched my right / left click in user preferences. Couldn't stand accidentally clicking somewhere and placing the 3d cursor.

Maybe that's not what you mean though, can you explain further / differently?

Yeah that's it! I am about give blender another opportunity but I've been using 3dmax and I'm not used to the right click. I am going to change that and give it a new try. I like blender modifiers and some more things. Maybe I use blender for modelling and 3dsmax for the unwrapping. I like 3ds max uv unwrap modifier.

Yeah great for scale.. I've had issues with reference pictures of front and back, while YouTube and eBay have been great for shape it's still hard to get the right scale.

Just spent a couple of hours putting my meshes into Snappes Blender template. Maybe someone can tell me if it looks OK or if I have something wrong?

Chassis is rear fender, frame, airbox, seat, tank, shrouds. Front suspension is fork guards (lost my lower fork for some reason). Steer is bars, front plate, front fender, top forks, rear suspension is swingarm, linkeage.

Oh, and putting my rear number plate mesh in with chassis pivot caused some weird shading..

When using the default wheels, what comes with them? Discs? Chainwheel? Front Cog? Chain?

Would be useful to know what I have to model and what I can leave off.. Thanks!

Picked up the basics pretty quickly, have a good head for spacial awareness. Thanks!

Engine needs better placement and scale so more on that later. From side pics it looks perfect but from YouTube walk arounds it needs tweaks.

Got pipe?  ;D

Can't wait to get this in game.. Planning on doing 2 or 3 versions - stock, one with handguards and disc covers, not sure on a third yet but hate to say it, it probably won't be a DRZ unless someone wants to model the engine.. Not even finished and know I'm not doing that again in a hurry!  ;D

So how we looking? Two or three engine pieces left, hoses and cables, wheel stuff (calipers, discs, axles, chainwheel).. Sure there is more  :-\

Engine finished!... Bar a few hoses and small bits, carb is finally done and in place!  8) Happy days!

Also added rear brake thingy that connects to the rear brake pedal behind the footpeg, not sure the word for it.. Is it a pressure regulator? Added brake pedal and gear shifter, front sprocket and guard, skid plate, rad hose, few more engine bolts.. Think that's all. Now just small bits, front and rear calipers.  ;D

It looks like they're connected to the fork guards, and if so do they move with the fork guards up and down the top part of the shock? Seems a little weird..

I was sat at about 14000 tri's before I started the high poly version.. Not sure what a good limit is but I know some GP bikes models are 50 - 60k. Geo is attempting to find out but would be interested to know, Damien what's the RMZ up to?

Post by: Vortex_Damien on June 22, 2016, 11:42:55 pm
the high poly version is made for bakes.. you will not see any of that in game.. it is for your normal map baking. as far as the in game model my rmz was 56k but i could have easily made the count less it if i wanted too. 14000 offers alot of room for detail that you would not normally put in the low poly but if you can do it all on your high poly things should look pretty good :)

Yup paco, the front cable top half is part of the steering and the bottom half is part of the front suspension, I've tried to make it as straight as possible so it hopefully doesn't stick out when it compresses!

Also, the throttle cable runs all the way down to the carb and again the part from the throttle to the stem is part of the steering and everything else is part of the chassis. This will be the same for the rear brake cable.

I can't wait to skin it too! Not overly fussed about making new two stroke sounds, I tried before doing some for RC and they were met with laughter haha (not from RC, I think he was grateful, but the community in general and I can't blame them too much). I actually come from a recording, sound editing and music production background and had a very hard time trying to get something to sound realistic. It was such a painful process I'd much rather use stock sounds for now in the hope that they will change over time.

Perfect. About the sounds I'm coming from the music production and sound editing. More than 10 years making music. It's quite hard to loop bike sounds and adjust them for the pitch up/down system. A lot of harder than the 4 stroke sounds. The easy one is the idle sound haha. The rest are very difficult. I can't imagine how fun should be ride with a good 2 stroke sound.

OK!.. Think the first UV template is just about finished, just gotta add cables.

I've tried to add everything that I like (and hopefully you guys will like) to be able to customise in one image rather than as it is with the stock bikes where if you're new to skinning you really have to hunt around through onboard and engine (is it engine.tga? bike.tga? something)..

So we have plastics (shrouds and fenders), fork tubes, lower fork guards, seat, number plates, swingarm, bars, bar pad, grips, exhaust, tank, airbox (can be stickered as IRL) and will add cables.

Then it's on to frame and engine.. and all the damn small fiddly bits lol  :-\

Wonder if anyone can help with some Blender advice?

I'm having trouble figuring out how to have more than one UV map for my mesh. I've joined everything together so I can see all pieces on my UV layout at once when it edit mode and somehow (don't ask me how) I've managed to create another UV image. So far I have 'livery' and 'parts'. As you can see above I've done livery (with a few additions to completely fill out the template) and I've tried unwrapping the frame to the parts UV map by selecting it as the 'active UV map' from the UV editor window.

When I view livery I see what is supposed to be there. When I view parts I see my frame, but also the entire livery UV map too..

I've searched through about an hour of tutorial videos on UV's and can only find people explaining the principals, not going into too much detail. If anyone can help that would be great, or link to a tutorial that shows how you should do it.

Am I supposed to assign a different material to the parts I want on a separate UV map?  :o

Post by: pacopastor34 on June 28, 2016, 03:05:30 pm
To have separate materials in game it should be separated .tga in order to do separate .shd. To have separate UV you have to have separate objects. I can explain you better this afternoon by steam. I can tell you what I do or what I should do but sometimes I am soooo lazy to do it.

I'll be at home in just 1 hour.

Thanks geo, yup I've done that once with the grips, same both sides and no need to texture both individually so unwrapped and copied the mesh over to the other side with damo's help.

So if I join mesh then uv's might meet rearranging but if I move a mesh into another object the unwrap should be preserved.

At least in 3D Max UV Unwrap is preserved if you detach a part of a mesh to an object.

This is what I have currently, I've selected the faces I want to be most important to paint the frame and pinned them, then unwrapped the spare which are inner:

I can't remember how I did those parts in blender. In 3D max I used a Unwrap mode named PEEL. You mark the seams on the edges you want and the software do the work. It's like if you pelt an animal.

yeah and in blender you mark seams, but nothing I do seems to give me the symmetrical result I want.. No matter what both sides are always a different shape / size because I guess the frame has a different notch on one side.

Oh I think I see, apply scale and rotation to an object that's been resized or rotated in object mode so those changes apply to the mesh directly.. I did it, not sure it made too much difference though will keep trying to figure it out.

I've been struggling with this for a while now and can't seem to find ANY tutorials..

I've baked my normal map within blender and can't figure out how to apply the damn thing to the model to test it out, right now it appears as a texture.. Any ideas? Or links to tutorials? Thanks :D

Marmoset Tool Bag 2 is a cool program to view a model in a video-game like engine without having to setup a render or using the shitty view port visuals.

That's what I used for viewing my progress on my Honda before I had it in the game engine.

Wow that's looking great! Feel free to post as many pics as you want damo, this is intended to be a very open build ;)

Last night I just about finished unwrapping the parts template as individual pieces, and stitched it together in gimp. Fixed a couple of errors but noticed a couple more when I applied it. Was too late to screenshot but aside from two or three pieces it looked perfect!

Thank you very much for streaming your workflow doing this so I was able to do the same  :)

This is probably a question for Snappe although anyone who knows! Pretty stuck.

I've split my mesh pieces, joined them with the MXB Blender template pieces as they should be, now all I need to do is move the empty parent's origins to match my objects, but I can't seem to do that without moving the object itself..

How do I move say in this case 'gear_lever', without moving 'gear_lever_pivot'?

Never mind, think I've figured it out.

If I select the mesh I want to move and copy it's global location I can then move the empty parent, rotate it how it needs to be, then edit the child mesh, rotate it back and manually type back in the coordinates.

Pain in the bum! ;D

Always check the recalculate normals option in FBX2EDF Converter.

Later in bike ed you have to place stand crosses next to the frame.

You have to put main tga to the pieces you want, another tga to the other pieces but before that you have to link your normals and your spec mac with the main texture by .shd

I don't know if it helps.

OK I am experimenting, but I'd really love to know from PiBoSo / Snappe on this one..

Using Blender, how do you have two UV layouts, and two textures working in game? It seems to be picking up the 2nd texture and the first UV map only..

Object > Snap > Cursor to Selected and then Object > Transform > Origin to 3d Cursor can be quite helpful. Except, there doesn't seem to be a way to easily align rotations.

Thanks Snappe, wouldn't have thought of checking the snap tool, saw it mentioned a few times in threads for a similar problem and dismissed it!

I think the main problem is that I don't fully understand UV maps. My guess is that I don't have two UV maps, they are just unwrapped within the same space but using different textures.

I have two textures, and my mesh is split accordingly so each object I have is designated one UV map so nothing is mixed. I've then applied each UV map to a material and selected my texture of which I'm using two, but only one texture shows up in game..

Everyone who's seen the model says it looks great but it has shading issues on the tank and the shrouds, look fine in high poly but when baking those shading issues are exaggerated big time. I've tried all settings in blender, xnormal, manually touching up the normal map, nothing seems to fix.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Nope, well, the normal I'm bringing into mxb using an shd file and have no problems doing that..

My normal also has spec in the alpha, the same as I would do for track textures.

As far as I can tell blender bakes normal artifacts to compensate for the low polys bad shading. Subsequently in blender my model looks great.

In mxb however, all that compensated shading really stands out.

I've also tried flipping the red, green, and both in the normal colour channels.

Latest progress and it's looking better.. Realised using 'auto smooth' you can set the angle. So I found the angle of 37 to work well for all plastics (roughly) and did a new bake. Then set the angle in FBX2EDF to 37 and it definitely looks like this is what I was missing.

I'd tried setting the angle before but was using default Blender angle (90, or 180 can't remember) and had no luck setting this angle in FBX2EDF. Maybe my normal just had too much work to do compensating for the bad shading.

So this is with normal map, spec map and reflection map. Not perfect but much much better.  8)

I'd love to.. But!

I either figure out a way of importing it without all these shading errors, or I completely remake all the plastics.

Number 1 I'm not sure is possible, number 2 is going to take some real time, although I could always refer back to my high poly plastics to see if I could reduce them more sensibly..
Title: Re: 2001 - 2008 RM 250 (WIP)
Post by: m121c on July 09, 2016, 01:12:28 am
There a few factors that can result in weird shading errors.

1. Base poly flow (both on the low poly model + highpoly model). If the polyflow is odd it will provide weird results all around. A clean and flowing mesh will provide good bakes and unwrapping, so if its off it can cause a huge headache.

2. When you bake to a low poly model, you want to ensure the low poly is already triangulated. Sometimes if you bake it to a quadrified mesh, and you import it into a game engine, the game will auto triangulate the model. Now it could retriangulate it differently then what you baked it too (although it displays a quad, 3D programs still form meshes in triangles even you can't see it). Now, normals are specific to a mesh face, so if the triangles are different it can look weird.

3. The bake cage. Not sure how blender works, but in 3DS Max you have a cage that contains your 2 meshes. (Low poly + High poly) The cage is like the "out of bounds" for the baking rays. It's tough to describe, but basically the tighter the cage is around the models the more accurate the bake. If part of the mesh passes through it, it will just not have normal information there which is no good. So you gotta find that happy medium of getting it as close as possible but not to close. In max you can manually adjust this cage.

4. So if the model is good, no probs, and the bake is setup correctly then it could be channels. Oh snd another thing, you cant not rotate a baked normal map. Thats a no no as well.

Normal maps are awesome, they can do amazing things. Take it from aguy who baked every single part on his bike, man its a headache if something is not looking right.

Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on July 09, 2016, 01:28:31 am
Thanks for the tips!

Poly flow is good on the whole, but a few areas that are giving me problems are now being adjusted. Fingers crossed I'll get away with not having to adjust the high poly but if I have to then so be it :(

No Blender doesn't use cages in default mode, I think you can use them in cycles render but I haven't got that far yet. I read up on it and although I can't put it into words I know why.. roughly lol..

I did try xNormal which uses cages but ended up with the same weird shading. My take on this is that I did the cage right, but my low poly plastics are just not good enough. Bit of a delay on things but shouldn't hold it up too much.

Bit confused on this one. Pivot seems perfectly lined up in Blender (this is main fsusp pivot, not meshes pivot) and slides up and down perfectly in line with the upper suspension, but in Bikeed it comes out the front of the top fork at a weird angle..

Is the location of the lower suspension dictated by the steer pivot angle?

This is already my favorite model to hit this game, hope it rides well!!

I appreciate that you like to keep it competitive to the MSM's, which is what the simulation is based around. I do think a little tweak to the power gain could be in order so you feel it engage more like the 125? If it makes it OP or something silly then nvm.

Thanks! It could do with a few tweaks to the engine I suppose, I just don't want it to go the same way as the other custom bikes where it's disproportionate. As the geometry plays a big part in the handling.. I dunno, I may see if someone wants to have a go at making an engine for it to see how it goes, but I don't have much interest in doing that myself..

I genuinely have no idea.. The texture really isn't that much smaller there, in fact some other parts are a bit smaller and the texture appears clearer. Not too bothered by it but would be nice to fix.

well... if you want to match the rider and helmet.. it works for me

No I think you're right geo.. Maybe the rate of buildup could be based on the conditions.. I didn't notice any difference between riding on a wet and dry track (riding wet hoping to increase the rate of mud buildup).. Asked the question but haven't had a reply about how it works.

I also don't think a bike gets that muddy on the front number plate unless getting roosted but guess for now it has to account for all circumstances.

The above picture is full mud btw.. many many laps in  ;)

At the very minimum you'd need a layer for:

dry solo, wet solo, dry following, wet following.

On a similar note I'd also still love the 'being roosted' sound I requested ages ago. Sounds simple to me but maybe not so easy to implement.. If you ride through particles of another bike you hear the sound of roost hitting plastic, would be so immersive! Would make following another bike more intense.

One neat thing, found a sneaky way of having with or without handguards on the same model, so will be adding a few accessories that people can pick and choose from and skin, handguards, disc cover, toying with the idea of twinwalls and fatbar but will have to see how that one goes!

.. Edit.. Never mind, scratch that. It works but has a few pitfalls that aren't good enough   :(

.. Edit.. Again.. Maybe it will work after all  :o

Does anyone know how blender and alpha works? Just using a texture with an alpha layer when exporting makes the transparent parts appear black in game.. Setting proper alpha in blender works ok but makes the textured parts of the object look like glass where the back edges / faces are see through..

For anyone who's interested, feedbacks been good from the few who have tried it out so will aim to get a v1 out sometime next week ;)

Would you guys prefer v1 with or without handguards?

Can you do the "normal" bike without - stock style, and a skin with? Or do you require 2 actual bikes and can't add 3D parts inside of a skin?

Post by: 𝖙𝖋𝖈 on August 07, 2016, 04:19:43 pm
Well I was working on a way to have 2 paints, with and without handguards. And although I have it working, they are semi transparent when you use the 'with' texture.. Sandy just may have helped out on that one though with a potential alpha fix so we shall see..

Being a woods rider I prefer it with (been watching this thread forever) but even if they end up there as an option in the long run it would be cool with me just to see this bike in game.  :D

Can anyone give me a pointer on how to get bike shadows working? I've so far:

Removed all materials from both the materials window and each individual UV mapped part (leaving the mapping in tact) for my model, it's completely white in Blender.

Updated export script to point to model_shadow.edf

Exported my bike as model_shadow.fbx

Run through FBX2EDF using both the mesh and shadow options, saving as model_shadow.edf and using the export script.

So far, I'm getting no shadows in game :(

Any hints, tips on the above? This is my job for this afternoon then I'm pretty much ready to release the first version of this bike..

You can only select one option, by that I meant I've tried both individually ;)
