SciFi Tank

A Sci-Fi tank with a shield that I built for a senior project. The videos show my progress from making the blueprints work to final completion. An interesting piece of feedback I had was to make the shield drag as the tank moved. I have a blog post explaining how the shield drags on the ground using world position offset.

The completed tank showing all particles and effects.

The full shield material. Opacity is controlled through a single node.

The Start of the project, the first test was to make sure the code was working before working on the particle effects.

Once the code was working, I added textures to the tank and started working on the particles.

Refining the particles and look of everything.
