I'm very happy to have you back for Volume 3, where we will finish procedural placement of our modules. This time we will focus on roof set dressing as well as placing windows and doors. We will face new challenges and learn how to solve them by procedurally assigning the correct scale to ensure that all of our modules can fit to the desired area perfectly as well as dealing with more complex combinations of modules.

All the assets are included with the course material, and I just can't wait to start! So, I’ll hopefully see you soon and we will continue making our building generator more awesome.

Volume 3 - Chapter 2B (Total Length: 3 hours 30 minutes)

In Volume 3, we will finish procedural placement of our modules, which includes roof set dressing, door & window placement, as well as the tower set. We will solve new challenges by making the scale of our modules procedural to ensure they can fit perfectly onto the dimensions of our base, and we will look at more complex sets of modules when dealing with roofs.

Part 1 – Roof Extensions

In Part 1, we will come back to our roof base and make sure that it doesn’t end abruptly when meeting the body. We will extend its area by taking into account the roof’s surroundings.

Part 2 A&B – Roof Rims Set

In Part 2, we will be dealing with the Roof Rims Set, which features more complex assembly logic. We will take into account special cases as well as take care of the procedural scaling to ensure that our modules fit perfectly onto the desired area.

Part 3 – Roof Set Dressing

In Part 2, we will move on to the roof set dressing, which includes roof windows and chimneys. We will define the constraints those elements have and incorporate them into our system.

Part 4 – Clean Up

In Part 4, we will perform a quick clean-up of our system and make sure everything works the way we intend.

Part 5 – Tower Set

In Part 5, we will place tower modules and take into account new constraints it will introduce for our building elements.

Part 6 A&B – Doors and Windows Placement

In Part 6, we will write the rules for placing doors and windows and teach our system to automatically “cut” the geometry to fit our doors and windows frames perfectly.
