Pretty Picture

Postby cgeyl » Wed Jan 21, 2015 9:40 pm

So to triumphantly demonstrate my return to Desktop computing I rendered out a picture of the kingdom of the seven stars using a third party render program called Chunky.

It's a pretty cool program which loads world files and resourcepacks straight from your minecraft saves, really good for loading a heap of chunks at once. It can also render light sources in minecraft as emitters but the problem is that it renders every possible diffusive light path from torches and glowstone individually so it literally takes days of processing time to get an image with the emitters turned on which isn't really grainy.

Pretty good for large landscape shots with emitters turned off though, here's an unfinished castle I'm building

I'm planning on dusting off the old season 2 map as a subject for some massive landscape shots after my computer's done rendering another castle shot with emitters on.

I pulled out the old season 2 map but I can't really think of anything to take photos of. At the moment I'm just using all my stuff as wallpapers

first picture is just the courtyard of that castle I built. I put emitters on though so I made it run for like 7 hours; you can see the grainyness of the lit windows.

I had a go at doing one of the empire, but i must have moved the camera somewhere stupid when I left for work so it came out awful.

Where's Argentifex? I don't know that one by name but I'm guessing it's silver?

That map made me miss my lonely town.

But I sure have some fond memories of those argentinese
