Research Driving Simulator featured on the BBC News

A Research Driving Simulator that I worked on creating the 3D graphics, was recently featured on the BBC News promoting road safety. You can see the report below,

The Driving Simulator was created for Nottingham University by XPI Simulation. A further video showing the comparison between the 3D graphics and the real world can be seen in my earlier blog post  University Of Nottingham Driving Simulator

rFactor Track Re-branding

I have just completed some work for TripleWidescreen who required me to change the advertising on a circuit which could be used inside the game engine rFactor.

I believe this was then used to show to one of their clients. The track shown is the Silverstone F1 circuit.

This is just another example of the work that I can produce, How would your logo look on a track side advert?

Low Poly Billboard - Game Asset

Here is a little object that I have been working on recently. It is a billboard that contains an advert to my website www.markshires.com and will be used as a way of trying to promote myself.

The Model shown is a real-time model that is displayed in-game. I hope to include this model in most of the work that I produce as a kind of watermark.

The model has been created and textured in one texture containing a colour, diffuse and a specular map, and could be used in most game engines such as Unity.

See if you can spot the billboard in my future work!

Robotic Arm Rig - 3Ds Max

Here is a recent rig that I have set up using 3Ds Max. I have created a Robotic Arm which will eventually be used for my Herring Factory game level. (More details to follow soon)

I have set up the rig and tested the animation and it works well so far.

I still have to unwrap the model and then texture it, but hopefully I should be able to integrate it into Unity and get it working in my game level. Check back soon for further details.

Toronto Motorsport Park (Cayuga) - rFactor Track

A project that I am currently working on is to reproduce the Toronto Motorsport Park race track, for use in the rFactor game.

The Track layout is shown above which shows the three different configurations for the track.

A short video clip of what my track should look like when it is complete.
I will keep you updated as and when I have anything to share with you.

For information regarding the track please visit there website www.torontomotorsportspark.com
