I was talking with a student yesterday about current AAA character technical budgets, so here's a quick thread for those of you struggling to yank your instructors out of 2007 and into the modern world.

On #SpiderManPS4, spider suits had anywhere from 80,000 to over 150,000 triangles, and a minimum of 4 materials at anywhere from 1024 to 4096 res textures.

Additionally, almost every material would have tiling detail maps in the shader for things like cloth and leather.
For civilians, head models had about 6000 triangles and a set of 2048 textures for the head.

On top of that, there were materials for the eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, hair, teeth/tongue, and a material each for the different clothing pieces.

Most textures were authored at 2048.

Disheartened to read a bunch of KFGD questions thinking the #SpiderManPS4 Rami suit is because of the people who were being jerks on the Internet. That's not what happened. I have no inside knowledge, but I think it's pretty clear we have a sad, repugnant situation here...
If I've learned one thing covering games for 12 years, it's that nothing's simple. Creating the suit wasn't simple. Getting it to work wasn't simple. Making sure it didn't break the game wasn't simple. Getting Sony/Marvel/etc. approvals wasn't simple. This took forever.
So, now, put yourself in Insom's shoes. You're working on this thing you know people want, you're excited to give it to them, but contracts and red tape keep you from even being able to TEASE that you're doing it. You're close, but you still can't say anything. Excitement!

Hot take: The best "Spider-Man" game is still Persona 3.
Here's why that is and what I'd change. #spidermanps4 (1/14)
One thing that always sets spider man apart from other heroes is his dual life. Other heroes fight and joke and emote, but Spider-Man also has to juggle school, work, and family. Ordinary stuff. (2/14)
I love this about Static Shock and other superheroes in the same boat as well. In addition to making them more human and realistic, it also makes them way more heroic! They're not mega-rich or totally above mortal concerns, they gotta pay the rent! (3/14)

#PlayStationE3 à froid.

C'était nul. Désolé Sony mais là vous avez merdé votre présentation.

En 2016 vous étiez parfaits, vous avez fait ce qu'on attendait d'une conférence. Des jeux, des trailers, des annonces, des bombes, des souvenirs, du spectacle, ce qu'on attend de l'E3.
En 2017 vous avez un peu répété le même truc, mais la surprise en moins, on était pas surpris, on restait sur notre faim - mais la conf' restait quand même solide et était au-dessus du lot. On pensait que c'était juste une année "filler" le temps que les jeux sortent.
Et qu'est-ce que vous nous avez foutu cette année putain. 🙄

Une idée de "génie" de faire la conf' dans 2 salles pour donner une ambiance intimiste à #TheLastofUs2 mais qui se révèle être un foirage complet avec cet entracte interminable de 15 minutes chiant à mourir.
