Hiya, I’m a budding 3D modeller/programmer who is obsessed with Morrowind. My wife and I have just started our own game development company, and I’m cranking out 3D models. Since I have a lot of time to do that, I want to crank out some NIFs for TR.

I really know my way around TES:CS so I can make exteriors/interiors for TR, and write scripts, but 3D modelling is something I just looooove to do, so basically, does TR need any 3D models for… well, exterior statics, items, weapons, whatever. Pots and plates and nicknacks is fine. I can do usable armour and weapons as well. I’m learning my way around sculpting so soon hopefully I can do some more organic shapes (like creatures and so forth) soon. Naturally I can texture them too, and do icons for items. Also, I know my lore resonably well, as I’ve played Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim to death and have read pretty much all of the Imperial Library website.

Yea so… how can I help and what can I make to showcase this?

For models, you don’t need to make a showcase or be promoted, you can just start contributing. A promotion might follow based on your contributions, but doesn’t really serve a practical purpose.

 

Models are very much in high demand right now, though due to a low number of concept artists we can’t really show you everything that needs creating. We have managed to build up a small selection, though, mostly of environmental concepts though I’m trying to work on some architectural concepts as well:

Flora:

Salt formations (model relatively simple, texture more complex):

Rocks:

You’ll find more information about those concepts in the pages I linked as well as these threads. I may have some creature concepts up before long, and there was some talk about statues here, but I’m not sure if you’ll want to bog yourself down with complex stuff right away.

Hey, welcome! You’re in luck, as right now we need modelers and artists moreso than CS people.

If you’re modeling, you will not need to go through a formal showcase process, as model submissions will be reviewed on a case-by-case, a process that is more subjective. If you contribute enough on a regular basis, you’ll be given Developer status.

So you can start contributing right away. We need all sorts of things, particularly landscape and architecture assets. Right now we’re working on making statics for House Dres’ architecture, as well as landscape assets for the Deshaan plains region.

Be sure to also check the Concept Art and Planning forums for additional inspiration. We also could use original concepts if you got any! Really glad to have you around, looking forward to seeing your work! :)

Okay! Thanks for the warm welcome and info. I did a test rock for the deshaan plains, so I guess I’ll make a new forum thingy for that in the correct place :)

Edit: rock is here: http://tamriel-rebuilt.org/forum/exterior-deshaan-plains-rocks

Hiya, I’m still alive and back to work after brief period of being unwell. Sorry for the delay :)
