** Welcome to the SuperGenius Modular Home Megathread! **
We felt it best to create a single, comprehensive thread that hopefully answers any questions that you might have about our pack. It’s best to have an open conversation about our products so we can continue to create high-quality content with the best support. With that, we encourage everyone that purchases our packs to give us feedback; whether it’s a feature request, bug report or a general use inquiry.
To start things off, we put together a helpful Modular Home FAQ!
- Can I build unique homes with this?
Indeed! This pack is completely modular. It’s broken down into logical pieces so you can arrange them yourself and build unique homes; think “The Sims” or “Legos”.
- What about neighborhoods?
Absolutely. I would recommend building a few homes in a separate scene, group them up and bring them into your neighborhood scene afterwards. Also, some of the meshes are pretty dense and currently without LODs. So, I wouldn’t fill out full interiors for every home in the scene unless absolutely necessary.
- Can I use custom textures? Substance?
We do provide a material that supports custom textures! Both tileable and unique. Just keep in mind that all meshes use UV Set 0 for tileable textures (lots of UV stacking) and UV Set 1 for unique textures (no stacking). I explain this further towards the end of the breakdown video (linked below).
- Can I make multi-story homes?
Yes and no. In the current version, We don’t provide stairs, banisters, vaulted ceilings or custom walls that would support some stair styles. That said, the pack is designed in a way to work well with your art. Implementing your own stairs and ceilings should be pretty easy. There is multi-story supported exterior pieces however, so multi-level facades can be created.
- Any plans to update the pack with more content?
We are definitely looking into future support for the pack. We want to provide the best content and support we can to our customers. If there is something specific you’d like to see in the pack, let us know!
- Is there a handy video tutorial that describes the pack in more depth and demonstrates the materials?
Yes! The video breakdown is located here: SuperGenius - Unreal Marketplace - Modular Home on Vimeo
As we receive more feedback, I will update this original post with additional FAQs, in progress updates and bug fixes.
In the mean time, if you haven’t checked out our packs yet, please head on over to the Marketplace and take a gander. We’re just getting started and have some great stuff planned for the future. Thank you everyone for your interest and we look forward to starting this conversation.
