Pete,
your cathedral is so typical for armenian ones that it might be used also for other cities there, such as f.e. Stepanakert in Nagorny Karabagh, which  I am working  on just now:


Yes, there are many similarities with all Armenian churches and Cathedrals, hopefully once I finish mapping this one it will combined with the earlier monastery give us a good selection of parts I can mix and match to make others, even if not identical certainly something generic that will look near enough. ;)

I can separate and scale certain sections and attach to others, maybe even just make you a set of the basics to assemble yourself and once you have something to your liking then I can assemble those parts for you into a complete building with the shadows and such, unfortunately, there will obviously be variations in size between the previous set and this Cathedral but it should give you an idea of what your particular building would look like and once I have it clear what you need then I can put some thing together.

Right now progress is slow because my mother is ill and I need to spend a lot of time at the hospital but the Cathedral just needs to be mapped and at least it is built so you should be able to see what parts of that could be useful for any later project.

Just leave a space in each city on the map and we will slowly try to fill in the holes by making something for it.


Take care.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

Family issues are to the fore at the moment but I managed to finish the arched doorways. ;)

Certainly no great work of art but it will have to do. :D

If I keep the mapping for the parts to the same scale as the rest the detail from the texture is quite poor:




To increase the detail means using a large area of the texture for a more detailed image and it is not
a perfect fit, here the arches and centre doorway:




So, is it worth losing the area that could be used to accommodate further parts of the structure just
to include some extra detail to a few parts?

Should the entrance be given priority as a focal point that leads us into the building or is it better to
keep everything the same in regard to texture detail?

Any thoughts guys please on my dilemma?


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D

That looks FABULOUS  8)

As for your question,
I think if the skin is sized 1024x1024 and there is space for the detailed entrance arch-doors on the skin,
go ahead and use it.
Even if the skin is sized 512x512 , there is still ways to make the little details noticeable.

Hello Max, I agree with you on that as anything that adds more detail to a object has to be welcome but for the moment the idea is on the back burner, however, I thought it important to at least test the possibilities and if the opportunity presents itself I will go ahead with it. ;)

Looking at what I still need to map I will certainly have to make a second texture to put all the parts on, once that is done I will see what space is left over, if any, and decide then.

The building as it is I think will be good to go as a single object, although I need to alter the side doors as they actually have arched doors and I made normal ones as per the front so I will need to test the poly limit then, however, there is also the option to make those doors and their arches as a separate object with their own texture, so I have a number of options I can use if needs be.


Wishing you all the very best, Pete. ;D
