Okay, I've been working on this small river barge. Is this tarp kind of lame? Should I not bother with it? What do you think? The barge is pretty much complete, I could post the three pieces I have now (ship, cabin top, & cargo rafters) and the the tarp after I do some more work on it. Or, I could just leave it off....

Without reading your words, I wasn't sure what the tarp was, but I figured it out quick enough. I think it's fine like that.

Very nice.

Perhaps you could also do a version without the crossbeams, you could post this as an individual piece, so that everyone can create his own individually loaded version by just using the ship and the cabin top. This would probably be the most useful transports I have seen until now, usable for any harbor or small village

Beautiful! And in a pinch you can use it in a Lewis & Clark adventure.

I second the request for modular pieces.

No, those are great. Very useful.
Remember that for Dundjinni, they need to be in PNG format - these are JPGs. But definitely post them, in whole or in parts... or both.

Okay, here are the completed versions...

I made two different barges, one with interior design and one without. In both I left out the cargo. The files are too large and are below the images.



Barge #1
Barge #2

Here is the top.


Rafters.


Going to try and change the tarp before I post.

Okay, I fixed the file on Barge #1. Don't know if anyone noticed but there was a funky line around it where I tried to define the edge of it after I had already added the shadow. I fixed that and added cleats alomg the sides. The cleats are on both ships even though the jpg only shows it on one.

Ok, this should be the final version! I have completed the tarp and I think it looks much better then my first attempt since I did some shape editting and came around on the shading a little better.



The tarp, along with all other components are now in this zip file (almost 3MB). I will most likely replace the component links on the front page with this zip as well since I have limited web space for now. All of the seperate components are:

Barge
Barge w/interior furnishings
Crossbeams
Tarp
Cabin Ceiling

Hope you like it, happy mapping! Now what to do next....

The tarp is much improved. Great job!

Wish I knew how you got that effect.

Okay, I have a quick question....

I think I read in a post a while back to use about 200 pixels for 5'. I didn't think about that while making my river barge, but actually, using that scale works out about right for it when I look at it. Makes it around 12ish' x 50-60ish'. Now what resolution do you guys use as a standard - 96? Or do you set your image by inches and then set your resolution to whatever you want (according to file size)?

These barges are great! I also love the new tarp, it is infinitely better.

Futureboy, I also have this question, and have re-posted it in the tips section of the forum in an attempt to get a discussion going about it there.

Please see the new post

Heruca, if you are really interested, I can try to give an example of how I did it this weekend when I get a chance. It was really pretty simple once I figured it out.

I am interested, if you can spare the time. And I'm sure a lot of others could
benefit from it. Thanks.

Some great objects. Here's some tarp variants to create some contrast...

Excellent! Handy for customizing/differentiating multiple boats.

Great job Halebop! I was looking at the barge last night in that murky river water thinking it looked a little... well, brown.

Heruca, I thought I would try to do a quick walk-through
of how I made it. First here is a picture I made:



Okay, for the tarp I just found a "tarpy" texture and made a basic rectangle over my barge to fit over the
cross beams. I then made it transparent so I could see the beams through it and get all my modifications in the
right spot. I then added editing points where the crossbeams met the edge of the tarp. I added curves
between the points to get the shape of the tarp.

From there I made the shadows (I waited until the end to remove the transperancy).
1-created black rectangle cover almost half the space between the cross beams.
2-Edited points to fit in curved portion of tarp.
3-Applied fade-out
4-Added transparency (94% on long rectangle/74 & 89 on side "squares")
5-For the thin shadow along the edge, I made a triangle and only did the inside out fade. I may have adjusted
the fade settings, but you could just add transperancy there as well.

I know that is a really quick version of it. Let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thanks for the tutorial, Futureboy. I'll have to try that technique soon. Looks
very useful.
