Still lots of improvements to be made... but it is definitely getting better.

Procedural Spacecraft

I applied the greeble system to another spacecraft shell, trying to make some kind of freighter.

This highlighted a few issues. Greebles need to tile, rather than stretch. They also need to take collisions into account when determining placement.

More greebles...

Greebles - Before and After



I've also made a Mesh Combiner script, which combines meshes which share materials into single sub-meshes, and also works with the 74k vertices per mesh limit. This also works nice with a LOD system, so you can enable and disable layers of greebles as required.

Being able to script the Unity editor in this way makes it an extremely powerful game dev tool.

Greeble Tool for Unity

As part of my quest to create amazing procedural spacecraft, I made a greebling tool for Unity. Here are the before and after screengrabs.



If you want to be really crazy you can even add greebles to your greebles.

Greebles Upon Greebles!
