So I've been re-inspired to update my blog site. I've also been enthralled with a program I've discovered during my prototyping on this project: Shader FX - such an awesome tool. Allows you to create Shader's and preview them in the 3ds Max view port in real-time. I've also been looking at a way of using that to enhance the cloth realism. Also happy to say I'm getting some really good results. Although it still remains to be seen as to whether it'll be worth the cost at putting such a Shader in the game.
So I'm going to try and keep this site moving now, get some momentum and post some of my newer work up. I'm thinking samples of work in progress might be a good start.
