[VIDEO] Coffee Induced Dreams
« on: May 25, 2018, 09:53:04 am »
Hi everyone !

As you may know, I'm part of the RIdPEF community, a group of (mostly) french speaking enthusiasts about exploration in WoW, but also about modding in the game.

On April 25th 2010, the RIdPEF decides to start a big project : a video of about twenty minutes, in order to show the creative side of this community. A little like a machinima, a little like a technical demo, a little like Snoman or the MC-Addicts videos. In short, breaking WoW for a purely aesthetic purpose.

After eight years of work, the video is now finished. So without further ado, let me introduce Coffee Induced Dreams, which we consider as the culmination of our work on the game World of Warcraft.



We also want to thank the whole modding community around the game, for the knowledge and tools gathered over time, and more specifically : Adspartan (for his Multiconverter and work on Noggit), Alram (for the wiki hosting and his work on the minimaps), as well as Schlumpf (for his huge reversing and documenting effort over the years, his contribution to many tools and among them Noggit, and for helping everyone).

More information, bonus gallery, etc. : https://ridpef.org/en/coffee-induced-dreams

Thank you for your comments and viewings \o/

The black and white circles around 8:15 are sand storm blp swapped, weather set to (obviously) sandstorm and a fitting skybox :3

I claim that first needs to be freshly UV mapped. After that it should be straight forward. So probably using skarn’s wmo blender thing.

Hi !

The model was converted to obj (thanks to WowModelViewer export function), the mtl deleted, and the obj imported into Blender.
Then the mesh was heavily cleaned, and UV mapping was made by hand with lots of love.
The re-import was made with MirrorMachine by Gamh.

The zone landscape was made by Trèsmollo with Noggit, and Zhao made the skybox + added some more plants around.

Nice! The "Behind the scenes" video is just as cool.
