Packt recently published its second book on SketchUp titled, “Google SketchUp for Game Design: Beginner’s Guide“. Through this book and ebook, author Robin De Jongh focuses on creating realistic 3D game worlds complete with textures, levels and props. The book shows its readers techniques on importing game art to game engines such as Unity 3D, skills to sell low polygon 3D objects in game asset stores, and also guidance on photo-texturing models for ultra realism.
SketchUp is a 3D modeling program marketed by Google and designed for architectural, civil, and mechanical engineers as well as filmmakers, game developers. On April 27, 2006, Google announced Google SketchUp, a freely-downloadable version of SketchUp. The program, which is designed for ease of use, allows placement of models within Google Earth. Google’s 3D Warehouse enables SketchUp users to search for, download and contribute free models.
