It's 4 objects + 2 different lights that I duplicated inworld, then added the light bulbs. I was testing out if I could texture everything and then export them together, other than the bbq that I did first. I could do that and upload them, but the textures didn't apply properly so luckily I had also exported each object and texture separately as I went. So another lesson learned, until someone can show me how to do that (or if it's even possible) It could be that I 'reused' materials, so next time I will trying creating new materials for each piece even if I reuse the textures.
I could have baked them all to one uv map, but I wanted to make them separate objects so that they can be moved around if desired.
I normally do buildings in blender render as it seems to bake a more even lighting than cycles. I find in cycles I have to do the roof/ceiling separate or there is not lighting on the interior areas. Not so much with blender render, so it's good to have a choice of which render engine to use. I absolutely love cycles for smaller items and things such as jewelry & shoes lol
I will work on an actual video showing the whole process now that I know it works, but this should do for now I think. I would be happy to know if there is a more efficient way.
Basically it's the same way I do it in the Blender Render, with a couple of differences. It is quicker because it only requires one bake instead of baking each texture separately (I'm not even sure if that is necessary in Blender Render, but couldn't find a tutorial that showed exactly how to do that for Open Sim so that's how I was doing it.)
Keep in mind that I still consider myself a novice at this, so it may not be the best way. It worked for me, so this is how I will do it :) You can still change the individual textures inworld.
This is a package of building components that I am working on, mainly focusing on people that don’t really build, but want a house they can customize easily. The walls are all separate, but have window and door frames. The windows and doors will also be separate so they can be change if desired.
I ran into a few challenges with baking them in blender cycles, so these are my findings. Now I will know better next time and save time lol. Details are in the photo comments.
you are most likely right about that and I hope mine pushes me out to party sometime soon. It's been way too long lol
