Preparation:

Please download this zip file (Download link) and unzip the same on your local computer. This zip file contains the following: 

  • Roadsign_city.unitypackage
  • TS_SED_005.unitypackage
  • TODO_REFERENCE.PNG
  • TO_ASSESS_REFERENCE.PNG

Prerequisites:

Prior knowledge of Unity3D, Unity Scenes, Art Optimization, 3DSMax/Maya or any other equivalent 3D Software. 

Game engine: Unity 2018.4.16f1

Create an empty project and import “Roadsign_city.unitypackage” and “TS_SED_005.unitypackage” in Unity.

Assignment Deliverables:

The objective of this assignment is optimization of the 3D environment for MOBILE devices, keeping in mind not to degrade the visual quality of the environment.

  1. There is a 3D environment in the “Roadsign_city” scene. The 3D environment is split in two parts.
    1. Given reference image TODO_REFERENCE.PNG, indicates the part of the 3D environment that requires optimization. You will have to optimize the 3D model in terms of poly-count, structuring the environment, modifying shaders if possible, reducing the number of materials, etc. All possible optimization techniques must be applied on the 3D part of the scene.
    2. Given reference image TO_ASSES_REFERENCE.PNG, indicated the part of the 3D environment that is required only to be assessed and NOT worked upon. After assessment, note your findings and ways to optimize them in a document.
  2. Bonus point: Assess the “TS_SED_005” Car model, note your findings and ways to optimize them in a document.

Submission: Optimised Roadsign_city and a Document of assessment.

Please send your response to the above assignment along with your updated Resume and Portfolio link to hr@games2win.com
