Gotcha Gotcha Games shared new details regarding RPG Maker Unite and the powerful 3D Character Converter mini app.
The 3D Character Converter mini app allows RPG Maker Unite users to easily convert VRM format 3D character models into 2D animation asset images. In addition, the app is going to be available for free to all RPG Maker Unite users and available as a separate purchase for developers.
All the latest details are available below:
■Make Character Walking Animation and Battle Animation with Just a Few Clicks!
Since the Character Animation Data has changed drastically in RPG Maker Unite, RPG Maker Unite will not have a default Character Generator like in previous titles. However, due to Unity having great compatibility with VRM, a very popular 3D character format, we too, adopted VRM models and converted them into our default character’s animation images!
Due to this reason, we are developing the 3D Character Converter to enable all users doing something similar, through just a few mouse clicks!
■Free for RPG Maker Unite users! Also Available as a Separate Purchase!
Since the 3D Character Converter is an external app outside of RPG Maker Unite, it could be purchased separately. However, all RPG Maker Unite users are able to download it for free!
Also it is worth noting that despite the converter being made with RPG Maker Unite in mind, it is possible to select other resolutions too! It is totally fine for users using the 3D Character Converter for other purposes as well.
Since the recent advent of VR games and VTubers, VRM character models have become extremely popular within the game creation community, and countless extraordinary 3D models have been born. Users can either use existing VRM models available on the internet, or convert their own custom VRM models for 2D game uses! Let’s make good use of available VRM models or your own characters and make the most unique RPG adventure for them!
