I’m a code-centric Game Dev with a small budget and no Art Dept. I purchase assets from the Marketplace and I have no shame. However, I desire Entities in my game to appear unique in someway. I believe high quality Assets designed to be customized can achieve this. Thus, I only purchase modular asset packs. Modular Architecture & Environmental assets are a life saver. However, I’ve been patiently waiting for 3D Asset Authors to release customization-ready 3D Entities such as Characters, Weapons, Vehicles, etc.
For over a decade, I’ve been advocating for high quality, modular, interchangeable, extensible Assets in Marketplaces that sell content to the masses. FINALLY… Content Authors are hearing my pleads. Content Author’s like Ironbelly Studios is setting the bar high with assets like this. We’re also starting to see new collaborations between Artist and Programmers like (RBrown & Nightasy) and (Almighty_ gir & Kashaar) Teaming-up to create Modular 3D Assets and Blueprint-based Assembly Systems for complete plug & play Content Management Systems.
I predict other Content Artist producing supplemental Parts Packs compatible with pre-existing assets for such systems. Even if its a specialized/stylized asset, supplemental add-ons would help Devs like me. Modular Entities + Supplemental Parts Packs + Embedded-able Assembly Applications = A Paradigm Shift in what and how content is produced for the Marketplace.
I truly appreciate Content Authors who understand Game Developers like me. So Please take my money. Thank you.
