The trunk will have varying segment widths, so the radius denotes the absolute maximum. Once this is created, add an Edit Mesh modifier and select the central vertex on the top set of polygons. Pull this up a little to match Fig. 9. 9 40 Adapting a Concept Finally, go into polygon mode (4 on the keyboard), select all of the polygons (CTRL + A) and set the Material ID to 1. The model is now prepared for UV mapping. Add a UVW Map modifier to the stack and select cylindrical as the mapping type. Click the Fit button and the gizmo should match the dimensions of the model (Fig.
After completion, name the objects as Machine ref, Palm ref, and Fronds ref; and hide them. 5 The first model we create will be the palm tree. First we will make the trunk. Before we build the model, we will create the texture map in Photoshop. As the model will be based around a cylinder, the UV mapping will be cylindrical. Knowing this beforehand affects how we look at texture creation and a little forethought and planning will yield better results. Mirroring the aspect of the target, the texture will be taller than it is wide.
I also follow this concept of texture-sharing through on the smaller models shown on the bottom right image. This consists of a variety of grasses and small plants, which will be used as a cheap solution that we will use to fill our environment full of vegetation. The texture on the bottom left will be used as the foliage for a tree. The leaves run diagonally across the texture sheet so that the space is used more efficiently. If we were to have it vertical as we have with the bushes, this would result in a top heavy texture with a lot of wasted, empty space at the bottom.
