星際農業 APEX 02 (WIP)

Hi there! Welcome to my APEX progress page. I will be posting various assets breakdowns and progress shots from the development as I make them. All asset progress shots are rendered directly from Unreal Engine 4 unless specified.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @grossbloy. Thank you!

 

Summary


APEX is a hydroponics lab set up on the distant moon of Ganymede. With more than 390 million miles between your small colony of researchers and Earth, it’s up to you to ensure that your main source of food and oxygen is operational at all times. Balance day to day tasks such as maintaining and cultivating the agriculture all while keeping a keen eye on protecting your interplanetary harvest from environmental hazards.

 

Props


 

HoloTable™

Used for displaying the various environmental hazards in the terrain surrounding your base of operations. Definitely not used for watching terrible movies.

(Software used: Maya, Substance Designer, Substance Painter, Unreal Engine 4)

 

“Steve”

People say that talking to a plant will make it grow faster. So naturally giving it a name will make it grow even faster!

Oversized Airlock Keypad

There aren’t really enough people on your moon to justify locking your lab, but you had some old parts laying around one day and felt inspired.

One of the oldest remaining agriculture units still remaining in APEX 02. It has long since been retired and now spends its days as a makeshift mascot for the settlement.
