Hello everyone! I've finished my Japanese Street environment rendered in Unity HDRP. It's modular and I made nearly everything from scratch. I used metal, wood, and plastic trim sheets along with tiling textures and edge decals. The texel density is 2048px/3m. Side note: I'm not sure what the Japanese means in this scene, so don't read it meaningfully.

    Nice job. I feel like some of the edge decals are a bit too obvious, like in the third shot. Can you show the trim sheets you made?

    Really nice stuff.  Would also love to see a breakdown if you have the time.

    Yeah, looking back, I definitely could've masked them. I'll show the trimsheets in the breakdown I'm working on. Thanks for the feedback

    Thanks! I'm currently working on a breakdown. I'd like for it to be pretty extensive with every step of the way covered, so it might take some more time

    love the images. Had a question about the buildings. I see that you have modular pieces. Did you create basic shapes for the buildings and then use modular pieces on top of that, for example there is the triangle rooftop. Just curious how much of the modular pieces make up the buildings and how much of the buildings are unique.

    Everything is made modularly, so there are no underlying unique shapes for the buildings. These are all my roof pieces

    The base layer is just paper-thin wall pieces (I even rotated the half wall by 90 degrees to get an in-between wall height). Then, I added roof and extension pieces. And lastly, I added windows and some other details.

    I know it might feel really picky but as a small note about the japanese writings and so on: might be worth trying to get a nice translation for you pannel; feels kinda weird to have a random english pannel explaining that they are closed in fluent english. I would suggest to give a go to this kind of app: https://hinative.com/en-US where you can get some answer from native people.
    For the rest I can just + what @pixelpatron said: that 3 wheels bike would be marvelous!

    Yeah, I ran into exactly that problem! It's tricky doing a Japanese scene when you don't know the language. I appreciate the translation tool, I'll definitely check that out! And unfortunately, I have very little experience with modeling vehicles so that might be a challenge for me.

    Bravo! This is super well done! Love all the polishing you did on each of the props and how it contributes to the overall scene!

    Thanks so much! This project took sooo long for me but I learned a lot along the way. For instance, I specifically focused a lot on the histogram in Photoshop. I noticed how certain scenes I liked had really nice, sloped values in the histogram. For some reason in Unity, I had a lot of trouble trying to replicate that curve. Even in the end, it's not perfectly smooth but I'm happy with it.
