PBR Material Values Last updated 01 Apr 2016 15:58 by Areloch
This page is basically intended as a list of various materials and their rough PBR material values, such as albedo color, roughness and metalness. Obviously, there are variances and permutations on actual materials(different colors of steel or wood, for example), but these should act as good starting points for material types that can then be refined as necessary.

Built-in PostEffects Last updated 01 Jun 2015 17:50 by LukasPJ
Torque 3D's stock templates come with a number of PostEffects included. A PostEffect is a shader that is applied to the whole screen during/after rendering, and is typically used to implement effects like colour changes, motion blur, and antialiasing.

The editors Last updated 22 Apr 2015 18:39 by Areloch
Torque comes with a bunch of built-in editors you can run from directly within your game.

Named colors Last updated 22 Oct 2014 05:48 by buckmaster
Torque allows you to pass a name instead of an RGB value when you need to specify a colour. The allowed names, and the colours they represent, are described in color.cpp. They are shown below. Also, when choosing colours for your game, consider following a palette, which you could create online or browse here.

WorldCreator to Torque3D Last updated 17 Oct 2014 23:34 by LukasPJ
First create the terrain you want to export in WorldCreator… Done? Good! Now, the next step.
You should have something like this:


First we want to make sure the "height" and "width" of the terrain matches something we can work with.
In WC set width to match the terrain size (that is match the size of the image), and scale down the height proportionally so that it matches.
E.g. if the width was 12000 and height 2500, and you are exporting a terrain with a resolution of 2048 then it would be:

Shader Overview Last updated 17 Oct 2014 00:19 by LukasPJ
Shader support is handled two different ways in the T3D. The first way is for the engine itself to procedurally generate shaders from base Material properties. The second way is for programmers to specify their own shaders by using CustomMaterials and ShaderData structures.
