    So I've decided to jump into the Props with the intention of commercial props and I've decided that 'Packs' might be an interesting way to go about it. So I have decided that my first creation will be 'The Distinguished Gentleman' Pack which will include variants of a top hat, Bowler hat, Monocle, Moustaches, simple goatees (as anything complicated will need blending on the bones), pipes and possibly a cane or two (for if and when full body avatars become more commonplace.

    I might even go so far as to add a few Steampunk variants.

    Here is my work so far just to get the ball rolling :

    I'll be bouncing between this pack and Version 2.0 of my self avatar that I need to redo from the retopology stage.

    These look amazing. Cannot wait until they're done. Good luck and looking forward to seeing more updates.

    Bit of a slowdown due to visitors in town, then being very sick all this week and now having some 3D work to do for a client...I did manage to start the low poly/ unwrapping stages though...even hada quick go at trying to import it but it didn't work...but I didn't have time to explore it further.

    Should be able to get back on it during teh next couple of weeks.

    Does anyone know when the option for paid material will go live?

    SO Finally got a tophat into facerig. Of course it was a simple naming mistake that slowed everything down an hour or two.

    I think I have completely underestimated what polycount I should have for the hats, therefore I might double it up to get the quality a bit better on the silhouette.

    I found out there is no paid option in workshop like I thought there was going to be...so I dunno if there is going to be a Facerig marketplace that they set up or all items for sale will have to be doen on our own.

    There is a paid option on this site, so if you'd like to use that you can be more than happy to do so. Making a post on the workshop and having it linked here for a payment is more than an option.

    Oooo, didn't realise that. Will have to look into it! Thanks for the heads up.

    Here is the TopHat as a prop. Glad I upped the poly resolution. Although Maybe I should make it more shiny...or a shinier version. If I'm going to make a paid pack I'd like to have a number of options for each type of object to make it worthwhile.

    And the Bowler Hat...I think I like this darker version, so I'll probably make the Top Hat follow the same texture information.

    I personally like the tophat color more. It has a more fancy look to it.

    As in..the top hat is better than the bowler hat? Or the texture is better...or something.

    I'll be including both in the pack either way. :) I have two variations coming too that have a band around the base of them that I'm hoping will be customiseable...although I am finding the props are more limited in texturing options than avatars (skins for one).

    And another update. I'm going to have to make the string longer for the monocle I think.

    Having some serious issues with alpha and the metallic/specular setting on textures...they don't seem to make any difference at all! So Hopefully I can get help on that someehere...posted on the steam forums for now and see how that goes.

    Hello Discmage,

    That looks really promising :D
    I noticed you've also been posting on our Steam community boards. I have to admit I'm pretty hyped about the props you are making!
    Make sure you email our artists at artsupport[at]holotech[dot]eu with any questions you have when you run into issues :)

    Updated the last picture to include the fact I have Alpha on the monocle now...note you need to have _blend1 in your shader if you want to use the alpha...I missed that part even though it's in the Docs. I'll update my tutorial to reflect this note.

    An example would be : monocle_sht_metalcloth_glasses_blend1

    And a variation on the bowler hat. Onto the pipes I think...I'm still deciding which way to go with the moustaches...using Alphas to make it look like hair, or a solid black mesh to get that clean look.

    Can only get a 'little' more distinguished than this! I don't think I'll worry about the long pipe...thats more a wizards thing than a gentlemans thing.

    And the final piece of the Distinguished puzzle...although I'm not so happy with the results on this one, the Alpha seems to be a bit weird. I'll have to look into that. Does anyone know a better way to do alpha?

    At the moment it has the blend1 extension, I am also using the sht_prelit shader type (art support recommended that one for the monocle), I also tried the sht_metalcloth but it had a similar effect.

    From what I understand the alpha is basically overiding the objects behind it that also have alpha...so it goes right through the object, rather than just the polygon it is applied to.

    I'm currently trying to get the skins element working for the hats so that I con optimise the pack some more. Once that is done I will figure out how to release the pack. I'd LIKE to have it as paid, but I don't know about the viability of that really.

    You can always upload a few free, and then have a paid (FULL) pack with them all in there. That way you get traffic for people viewing the free ones, and seeing that you have more on your free version, with a link to the paid version. This way people who only want free stuff win, and those who want the whole thing have that as well.
