About New Feature "3D Character Editor"

The most requests from the users were "Enrich the Number of 3D Models." There were a limited number of 3D models in SMILE GAME BUILDER, so the visual contents of the games were in the range. However, the users can create original 3D models with this new feature “3D Character Editor” easily.

Usually, in order to create 3D models, you need to have some knowledge and high-grade modeling software. However, with this new feature, you can make new characters by just choosing preset parts and coloring the textures. Of course, the new 3D models can be added into your games right away. The range of expressions will be remarkable and unique.

We’re planning to distribute "3D Character Editor" soon. The information will be announced on our official website.

◎How to Make 3D Characters

There are four parts for character making: hair, head, body and legs. Use the painting program in the system to color the textures for faces and clothes. You can make 3,570,000 ways of 3D character models just combining presets parts, even more, if you paint the parts as you like, there will be almost infinite number of 3D characters you can use. There is no need to edit vertices of polygon models; all you have to do is just choose and paint.

You can change its skin tone, hair color and the color of clothes with the sliders or numbers.

The texture will be applied right away on the 3D model of the preview window, so you can check the final look with the real-time processing.

With this 3D Character Editor, you can create unique characters like them. These finished models will be added on the material lists simultaneously with the saving process, and use it immediately for your game development.

These are example models which were made by 3D Character Editor.
