US soldiers - First look at player models

Recommended Posts

The textures need to be redone, but as for AO, that would be done via graphic settings. Texture wise, for PBR in UE4, there should be no lighting detail in the albedo, roughness or metallic texture maps, however you can add a AO map in the materials, but it would show when the model is not under a direct ambient light, only in dark areas where lighting isn't shown. If you get what I mean.

 

Any chance of some player models getting sunglasses or safety glasses or would that be too complex?

For now, it is not a priority.

 

When at some point we do switch out these soldier models with realistic ones - we will strongly consider adding it.

Yeah I just figured that at some point down the line it would be a good idea, as I've seen a lot of soldiers wear them, especially in Iraq/Afghanistan.

I know they have some rigid standards in the USMC regarding facial hair, but I'm not familiar with the Army's stance on it. Either way, the squad leader model should totally have a big 'ol moustache.

it does, like there is something wrong with the colors

I see it looks shiny, kind of like plastic or something, but the colors look fine.

It has to do with the Roughness values. I'll look into them later.

Is the plan to let us customize our dudes to the same degrees as you would be allowed in the army? Because that would be kind of cool, wearing a scarf or not, balaclava, goggles, drop the backpack so you get a lower profile against the ground etc. etc.

Would be a cool feature to have. Sort of making the characters modular.

I dont' know if it's issue for normal grunts, but what about combat shirts? At least for desert/"hot-atmosphere" maps.

Yes, combat shirts are standard for overseas usage, but OCP FR is just as common place in the field. Here's a nice reference shoot taken this year from Operation Resolute Support:

Looking awesome! This game looks super cool and I can't wait tell I can get my hands on it. :D

 

Also: obviously it would hardly be impotent but would it be possible to be able to make miner changes to your characters appearance (ie. rolled up sleeves, un-tucked pants, sunglasses, knee-pads etc.) ???
