Hey everybody. The exports are currently limited with DOTA and other similar games. .blx is not limited, for instance the asset in the tutorial at high res is around 9 million polys. Overkill I admit ;) but that's how I like to work. As I mentioned to CG Vitamins on the Steam forums, we want this feedback. Your opinions will help shape the future of this product. I do want to let you know that as an artist I did fight for a lot of things for you guys but that doesn't mean everything is set in stone. We do need to take into account Modo 701 in many ways but that also can't be at the consequence of providing something that people aren't happy with. So keep the thoughts, opinions, and ideas coming in whatever way you feel appropriate. We will listen and we are actively discussing it. "Muahahahaha we are talking about you ;)"
Anyway, there are a lot of plans from a lot of people here regarding what else we can do to improve Modo Steam Edition and in general Modo for game workflows. You may be able to guess what some of these things are from the videos. Shader authoring workflows, 32 bit texture compositing for high level control, and baking refinements for example. For me this project has been a series of "ooooh we could do x, y and z." Many of these things will also benefit full Modo in the long run. I see a bright future in games for Modo and this could really help push that forward. For that to happen we need to be honest with ourselves regarding this feedback so keep it coming.
Now back to working on my lighting, shading and texturing workflows for DOTA. More stuff to come I hope you'll like.
Also I've been asked to do some videos after the Halloween contest ended, haven't had time because of the DOTA stuff and some other cool things you'll be seeing in the future. For those who haven't seen the new videos that are up, they are available to everyone, not just users of Modo Steam Edition. I hope some of these are useful to users of full Modo as well. 2.5 hr's of video split into 12 vids: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=202604023#190724
