I've created a low poly viking Longship dancing on the waves. It's still a ghost ship for now, but of course mighty viking warriors will be added. And who knows what kind of danger they will have to face.

The 50k poly limint will be a hard one to keep, but that is part of the challenge :wink:

Stay tuned for more.




If you want to see my progress, i'm streaming here on twitch. Follow me there and see me work on the contest:

Loved watching this on twitch today! Looks great!

Blog: One thing that is going to be a challenge for the scene I choose, is how to get as much useful assets in as possible. SInce everything happens at the water, there is less space to put assets and interesting things that increase the usability for the Mozilla community. One thing I can do is make parts of the ship modular so the community can use them to create their own ship shapes.

And here are the first warriors. I managed to keep them under the 1000 tris per character, which is awesome. I'm aiming at about 12 characters in the scene, of course with all different clothing and accessoires.

Every sword is made in it's own way. Creating a wide variety of weapons for the warriors to use.


(Matthijs de Rijk) #9

As I enjoy making weapons, I've tried to make as many variations as I can to add to the detail in the scene. Different Bearded axes, Dane axes, shields and Nordic swords all gathered for an awesome display of battle.

The mighty son of Odin is thundering in the sky...

Some better overview shots of todays work. I created a cliffside with a cave inside, dressed it with grass and a pair of trees. Also added the pretty new shields to the ship.

This is ridiculously good! Impressed to the core..

I have seen something like that in unity store, are you the author of that pack?


(Matthijs de Rijk) #13

I could have been, but no. Curious to what pack you saw... Maybe i'll release the Vikings on the asset store anyway after this project.

Thanks for the compliment!

You're welcome!

(the pack is by polygon, check them out and beat their price :wink: good luck!

Now, with Thor screening in cinemas this could be a very precious toy if 3D printed :slight_smile:

Testing out the scene in sketchfab. This is super awesome in VR!!!
