    [WIP] Dinosaurs and other extinct animals.. The Hulpen library.

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Nils, I live in Brussels and I am (re)creating extinct animals..

    -

    Captivated by the past, I studied early humans and their natural habitat at the university.
    That being said, I am amazed by aaaalll the amazing animal and plant species that have inhabited the planet Earth in the past.

    Spending days imagining the nature and landscapes of the past, I wanted to recreate them virtually.
    Leaving my reveries, I quickly realized that imagining, sculpting, texturing and animating extinct animals in a credible way required patience.

    Thus, because I think it might be helpful, I came up with the idea of ​​creating a unified UE4 library of (extinct) animals, highly customizable and ready to be included in a game. A library that I named Hulpen.

    -

    Having spent a year since late 2016 to do some research and preliminary work, I made a list of animals that I wanted to recreate first : I decided to recreate animals from the late Cretaceous (because we "all" grew up with Jurassic park !) and the late Eocene (because, yes, BBC - Walking with Beasts).

    I will submit an animal each week. (First submit: december 1st).
    • Each animal is visually adaptable (gender and age, health, skin details, scars, dust and mud, feathers, ..).
    • Each animal is animated.
    • Each animal has an artificial intelligence capable of interacting with each Hulpen animal and plant.
    • Each animal has an exact skeleton, viscera and a vascular system. Yes .

    The price will stay attractive and accessible.


    - Stay tuned, Dr Sattler and Dr Grant ...and encourage me if you have the kindness and the time !


    Nils

      I think this is great... the dinossaur theme is of great use in gaming industry and since there is a game (ARK:Survival Evolved) which accepts mods you could create a high poly and low poly version for gaming as sell them as mod content for that game. Just make sure to provide the animations aswell.
