pimped out, chromed out, truck mobile

let's try centered text!
started work on the truckboat a couple of days ago for the london 2111 game.
hmm, I really need to think of a name for the 'truckboat'..

the air is ionised, so electronics don't work anymore!
only these patched up '70 and earlier cars still run.

the wheels adjust in height, and the fenders will be capped off
and thus serve as air bubbles to keep it up!

here's the progress =D

 also, oil isn't a usable resource for this one, so I went
with a propane tank!

peace out!

Guns Guns Guns

here's an update.
I finished my normalmap yesterday.
for those of you who don't know what it is: a normalmap creates the illusion that there is more geometry than there actually is. by talling the specular where to go (speculars are calculated by the shader using the normals of an object.
it's possible to store the normals of a smooth opbject into textures for a chunky low poly object. this is done by calculating the difference between the chunky low and the smooth high poly, and storing that in a normalmap, which is applies like a texture.

here I've 'baked' the way the blue highpoly looks onto the chunky red and it makes the bottom chunky one look as smooth as the top most!
