Form: leveraging on 3d models

From showing the cardboard layers of components, to creating the subtle effect of linen finish, these small details really help elevate the look of the game and engages players visually.

Custom models also usually pave the way for more interesting functionality within TTS.

For the mod of Oros from AESC Games, I really wanted to level up the look of the 3D components to convince them that creating a mod in Tabletop Simulator is worth it.

I ended up adding a linen finish to all cardboard components in the game, which was only possible because each component was painstakingly modeled in 3D. While the effect is subtle, it really helps make the mod feel that much closer to its physical counterpart.
