    [WIP] Hotgates WIP - What to expect in 2019!

    Welcome to our Work in Progress topic where we discuss upcoming updates and asset packs.









    What to expect in 2019:


    Free Content Updates:

    Danger Decals Series

    A third variation of the signs will be added in Danger Signs Decals vol. 2. Done
    3D models for the various signs for use with the textures and decals. These will be added to all volumes of the Danger Signs Decals series.

    Sci-Fi Decals Series

    A blueprint that will allow you to create custom words with the provided typefaces and symbols. This will be added to all volumes of the Sci-Fi Decals series.

    Puddle Decals

    An additional 10 puddle designs will be added to the Puddle Decals asset pack. Increasing the total number of puddles to 50.

    Cave Drawings Decals

    An additional 20 cave drawings will be added to the Cave Drawings Decals asset pack. Increasing the total number of Drawings to 140

    Periodic Table Decals

    Previous goals completed - see posts below.
    One new poster design will be added to the Periodic Table Decals asset pack.


    Quality of Life updates:

    Restructuring of the naming system in our asset packs as requested by many of you. Many assets will be renamed to make them unique and easier for you to find them in the Content Browser.

    Extra grunge textures will be added to all our existing asset packs to add variation.

    A new optimized material that will reduce the size of our asset packs. Currently rolling out.


    Experimental (a.k.a not sure if they will be delivered):

    Working on a new more optimized decal material and/or blueprint in order to reduce the size of our asset packs and also make it easier to apply and modify our decals. We got it, so this will be rolled out to every asset pack that contains decals and anything that uses materials. Done


    New Asset Packs:

    Low poly series (3D Assets)
    Sci-Fi Logos and Elements (Decals)
    Danger Signs (3D Assets + Decals)


    As projects and asset packs get submitted and move past the work in progress state this page will be updated accordingly.

    Need help? The main support topic is here.

    Fell free to leave us comments or requests for upcoming assets that you would like to see. As always play nice.

    Here is a small preview on some of the asset packs that I'm working on and hopefully will be released in the second half of February.

    PLAYING CARDS (3D meshes)



    Fun Fact: Playing cards are with us since the 9th century AD and may have been invented during the Tang dynasty. This was a fun project to make so I hope you will find them useful.











    SYMBOLS OF THE WORLD (Decals)




    Symbols have been around for many centuries alongside language. Like written language, symbols carry with them meaning but unlike language, many symbols also contain secret meanings. Symbols are a form of communicative visual language. A visual language is a system of communication using visual elements such as symbols.

    I love the beauty, the meanings, and significance of many of the world’s symbols so that’s why this asset pack was created. As you can see in it, there are a wide range of symbols by subject. As such you will notice some symbols appear more than once. I'm aware of that and the reason I chose this is to preserve the meaning and grouping of the symbols. For instance a symbol from the Four Elements has a different meaning in another area/era. To remove it from the Four Elements for instance would cause confusion.

    They can be used as secret messages in urban environments, as UI elements on weather equipment, as textures in spells or particles or whatever you can imagine.

    I drew inspiration from many books like Dictionary of Symbols by Carl Liungman, The Book of Symbols to name a few and as always a lot of information was sourced from Wikipedia and other websites. The designs are not mine, they belong to the people throughout history. Not everybody knows the meaning of those symbols so, alongside this asset pack you will receive a mini e-book explaining the origins and meanings of the symbols in it. I hope you will find it as educational as I have.








    MARINE SIGNS (Decals)




    Official ISO-2019 Marine Signs decals. High quality decals for use in games and in VR reconstructions of ships or boats. Although there aren't that many ship or boat assets around these signs can be used in other areas as well. There will be a lot of Exit signs included.







    Let me know what you think. Cheers.

        Danger Sign Decals Vol. 2 and Danger Sign Decals Bundle have been submitted for update.

        Both include a third variation of the decals found in volume 2 plus a new optimized material that will reduce the size of our asset packs.
