  • Number of sales
  • Style consistency
  • Poly Count
  • Overall Quality
  • Use of UV space (model’s texture maps required.)
  • Texture Distribution (model’s texture maps required.)
  • Overall Topology & Edge Flow (render of the model’s wireframe required.)

You can create a game pack for iPhone or Android developers and to clarify a pack is a library of assets based on a theme or object. They can be various assets or the same asset in different styles, shapes and design. They are a valuable resource to be used by a developer for specific game themes. Here are few examples already on 3DOcean. 

A few mobile game ideas to get you started:

  • 1st Person Shooter Game Pack
  • Fighting Game Pack 
  • Medieval Game Pack
  • Car Racing Game Pack
  • Western Game Pack
  • Sports Game Pack

Other pack types that game developers find useful are:

  • Buildings and Architecture (city blocks, skylines etc) 
  • Furnishings (eg Office interiors, Apartment, House etc)
  • Nature (sky, ground, trees, rocks etc)
  • Weapons and Armour (eg Tanks, planes, ships, soldiers etc)
  • Car Collection
  • Toys and Games (game blocks, characters etc)

How many items need to be in a pack?
5+ items is required to be accepted as a pack

Can I enter more than once?
Yes, you can enter as many times as you like with each pack accepted to the 3D Model category counting as an entry.

Where do I upload my item?
Normal 3DOcean upload instructions apply. Depending on what type of pack you decide to create, upload it to the correct category and make sure you link to your item in this forum post to be eligible to enter!

Can I include my items already on 3DOcean?
Yes, as long as you upload a new item and it includes 5+ models in the pack it will be eligible. Please make sure your items follow a similar theme to be considered.

Hi jronn,

according to the rules :

The packs must include 5+ items

So the safe answer would be to post it as soon as you’ve got a complete pack accepted.

Thanks.
