More or less everything in the video you linked is 0.8 content. He rewrote most of ghostTown and the new upcoming 0.8 version features tons of new stuff showed in the video. One important thing is automatically setting material IDs. Also the whole node based building thing he shows in the video is new as far as I know. He have outlined new features in his forum.
Hey, sorry to revive such old thread, but I’m looking into creating cities for Unreal, and right now don’t have the budget to buy the items from the marketplace here.
I’m trying out ghostTown Lite 0.320, but as of right now I haven’t had any luck exporting/importing from Max into Unreal.
I love the look of this tool but I was wondering if anyone has any first-hand knowledge of how efficient the program is when it comes to poly counts when working in LARGE environments. As good as everything looks, if it kills realtime playthrough when loaded with realtime lighting, NPC’s walking around, AI controlled enemies, and the mai hero character I would probably not want to use it.
When using what looks like a populate tool and fills the city with doodads and cars and such it seems like it would have a really high polycount. What would a scene that is roughly 10km x 10km cost in terms of polycount?
