[Open Source] Cloud 3D Mesh Optimization System Installation Guide

So you are ready to start implementing your own cloud mesh optimization solution, well you’re in luck since this guide will show you how to do that exactly.

Before we start you are going to need couple of dependencies, make sure you have the following installed and configured,

To keep this guide simple i wont go into the details of installing each of these solutions, you can find many tutorials around the web to help you install and configure them correctly.

Now once you have all the services installed start by downloading / cloning the application from GitHub repository.

Kitbashing Spaceship Modeling Guide – Tips and Tricks Part-1

Kitbashing Spaceship : Final Results 01

Kitbashing is a modeling tech that allows you to use different model parts to make something totally new,

it works really great for scifi and mechanical models , through this article we will provide with everything you need to start building mind blowing spaceships.

Use this method to Improve your modeling techniques by integrating kitbashing in your pipeline , in this article we are going to guide you through the process of modeling , optimizing , texturing , and rendering the final model .

Being familiar with the following tools would be great ,

  • Blender  (3d Modeling Application)
  • Substance Painter (3D Texturing Application)
  • Unity Engine (A Fully Optimized Game Engine)
  • Keyhshot (High End Rendering Application)

Your first step to kitbash modeling is to collect models from different sources and use you imagination to combine them into your final peace of art ,

Unity Attach Weapon to Character

UnityTagUnity Attach Weapon to Character

In the following tutorial i will guide you through the process of attaching a weapon to a character using unity engine with a little bit of c# coding.

Ready to start , lets go , fire up unity and make sure you have a basic character with the desired weapon to attach make sure both of them are visible in the scene

In this tutorial we assume that your character is already rigged and has a valid bone structure , we need that to specify where the weapon is going to be attached , for more information regarding character bones and rigging .

Regardless if your not using a humanoid character you can just attach the weapon to any sub-mesh or even the original mesh itself,

WeaponAttachment

Once you get everything setup you need to create a small script to attach the weapon to the character , the script will have 3 states ,

  • Idle Position
  • Handheld Position
  • Shooting Position

You can add as many states as you wish but for this tutorial we are going to cover the three above , so lets get started

Openstack Nova Dashboard And Console Commands Not Executed

Openstack Post Tag

Generally this issue is caused by the Qppid or rabbitmq not synchronizing messages across the cluster , it can be debugged by looking into the Qppid messages stack , also you may try the simple fix below .

Make sure all compute services are up and running

Check the compute services are running on horizon dashboard

or you may execute the following command on the controller node

if all the compute services are up and running try restarting the Qppid service on the controller node , keep in mind that restarting Qppid would only reset the service and not flush the Qppid stack .
