The Amazing APB Reloaded 3D Render Community

Recommended Posts

960ad29b65.png

Hey! We figured we’d take this time to show off the more creative side of this community. And help those who want to do their own Renders too.
 

Thread will provide tutorials and links to programs we use in said tutorials. Resources for materials, skeleton and other bunch of stuff that will help you. And finished works for people who’ve created albums of their stuff they’ve made for people so you can see their progress as well.
 

Now start posting! Renders, ideas, projects. problems, instructions, Anything!
 

NinjaRipper now works! Download latest NinjaRipper and use d3d9!

Rules

With Little Orbit taking ownership of APB, the rendering are now being officially recognized and endorsed. This does come with a few rules, especially for posting art in general on the forums.

1. PG-13. This means no nudity especially.

2. Being payed for rendering is illegal as it breaches Little Orbit's copyright.

3. No stolen work. This is pretty self explanatory.
4. Keep it APB!

 

Tips

 


#1 - My Avatar's glasses are broken?
If you plan to remove doubles from a character that has glasses. Don't. Separate those Glasses from the character first, and then select the character and remove doubles. -Jenz/Amaka

#2 - Quick tip that works in all render engines for blender.
If you subdivide smooth your character model once or twice, it makes the model much more smoother and helps A LOT with stuff like fingers and other joints, it gives it more of a bending appearance and less of a folding one. You should do this before joining the body to the skeleton, you should also not do this to anything that isnt attached to the body (really anything thats very flat, as it will cause flat objects to puff up sometimes). -SkittyM
 
#3 - Textures are totally wrong! fingers are printed in the chest, and legs in the arms!
You have to convert .rip files in noesis to .obj with UV flip ON -Queen of Love
 
#4 - Half of face is gone!
You have to search again in the noesis folder, you need 4 pieces; hair, eyelash,half face, body and face. -Queen of Love
 
#5 - Black screen when using NinjaRipper!?
Ninja ripper has always done that from what im aware of, have to run the game in windowed or fullscreen windowed. -SkittyM
Don't forget to use -nosteam, or just disable Steam Overlay. Just make sure no other overlay software running like FRAPS etc. -Jenz/Amaka
 
#6 - I need your help with the settings for the windscreens at my car. I always have this problem Image
Try selecting the windows in edit mode and move them somewhere,more than likely that theres a z fighting issue with the glass because theres 2 sheets of it for each window. i had that problem until i figured out that i had 2 sets of glass for each window. Also, headlights/taillights may or may not have this issue, assuming they have glass on them(if they dont, then theres nothing to worry about) -SkittyM
 
#7 - My character's jaws are wide and all wrong!?
You need to rip outside of character/clothing kiosks.


Extra

APB Speculars/Vehicle Emissions

 


Now I'm about to write something that no-one will understand.
Specular.
 
When I discovered how Specular work on APB Avatars, I have to admit that the guys who made Character customization deserve more cookies.
So, people who do renders probably know that APB only has 2 or 3 character texture images. Diffuse, Normal and Hair(Unless your avatar is bald). Those who've looked at Diffuse Image probably noticed this and was wondering what the hell is this. It's Specular image.
 
hTww0.jpg
 
I always knew it and I always edited and saved it as a separate file. Not the correct way. Correct way is to do it is with Node Editor.
This is what the character looks like with simply adding Specular Image.
 
hTucs.png
 
It's obvious that it's meant for taking bits of pieces and give unique values. Using Color Ramps I could take certain value I wanted.
 
hTwwt.jpg
 
hTwwe.jpg
 
After I figured that one out. I worked on it and tried to mimic game's specular in Blender.

----------------

 

Worked on Vehicle Emission materials and I found out that the Alpha Channel is exactly like Character's specs. It's bunch of shades of gray values you can use to switch lights on or off.

This is one of my favorite renders that Jenz made for me. You've come so far in your abilities...I would love to see an updated version of it someday...maybe when they give me my gun back.

The elite of APB, damn guys you making the game looks like crayon drawings, lol

I've been always in love with these renders, could never get tired of seeing new ones.

And you guys have clearly put a huge effort on all this, not only rendering but also teaching others and sharing your knowledge!

But you can bring up things from the old forums https://forums-old.gamersfirst.com/ . I'm still figuring out how I can bring rest of the useful stuff without OP being absolute massive mess.

This will be the best topic on the whole forum! I remember I tried to do this myself, but I got lost in all the complicated steps.
Hopefully everything will get supported for rendering! Looking forward to the new creations! 🤩

It's never late to try again! Whiskey's tutorial is very thorough, and we would all be happy to help in any way 😃

Hmm, will BattleEye interfere with ripping models when it's implemented?  NinjaRipper is an injector isn't it?

It will consider ninja ripper as a third party application since apb needs to be run in the background via application selection in the options. most likely it will flag upon use since ninja ripper uses dll's to rip models sending a message for a ban or something. I'm guessing the dlls activate once you press the corresponding hotkeys to rip the files the game freezes. that's when it injects something.
