  • Newbie needs to create a bunch of shingles fast

    I am coming up on a deadline for which I got over my head. I’m modelling a facility to do a basic fly-around with a camera, and I need to create shingles for the roof. Just standard shingles are fine. I’m thinking a texture, bump-map, or some kind of material must be available for the roof of this thing without having to model a whole bunch of shingles.

    I cannot find Paul Everett’s plug-in, so am hoping for a little direction on how to create shingles. The shingles don’t have to be perfect… something that looks like shingles would be good enough.

    If anyone wants to point me to creating a grass texture, that would be cool too. The grass will never be seen real up close.

    I got it… just had my settings so small I couldn’t see it until I zoomed way in… Bump map of a brick pattern worked like a charm.
