3D Week 02 Minecraft-ish Level

For this assignment we took our UE4 blocks and pushed them to the next level. We took a block and used Maya and Photoshop and gave the blocks a MineCraft-like texture. We then took the block and imported it into UE4 along with the textures we made. From there we made meshes and materials in UE4 and used these custom "MineCraft-ish" blocks to make a level that resembled a creation from MineCraft.

The different textures I made
This project took me around 6 hours total, approximately 2.5 hours to build the level. I had to re-do parts of the project involving the UVs due to me not saving the Maya project the first time.

  1. I like what you have made, I wish my grass brick wasn't in there, I bet you could make a texture that fit your needs way better than the one that I made! :)
