what would be the fastest way (for you) to create a simple geometry ot of quads for this complex structure? structure

The simple geometry of quads is for the hitbox in the engine where i want to use the structure. The engine want all shapes to be square. So it only needs to have the open door, i dont realy need the windows open.

  • $\begingroup$ What engine are you using, what kind of game will it be? What will the object be colliding against? Is the player supposed to go inside? I need more background information to help. Always good to upload blend file as well: blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com $\endgroup$ – AzulShiva Feb 23 '19 at 17:33

I would probably first create the outer wall collision surfaces then go in and add the inner walls afterwards something like this :

Make a copy of the building model and move it to a different layer. This copy will become the Collision model.

1: Select all the inner walls and the box room on the roof. Assign these their own vertex group.

2:Hide this geometry.

The building appears to have two ground levels......

3:In Edge select mode select the outer lower edges of "ground level 1" and assign these a vertex group.

4: Select the lower outer edges of "ground level 2" and assign these a different vertex group.

We will be extruding these ground level vertex groups up along the Z axis to be level with the top of the walls so need to keep a reference hight.......

5: Select one of the walls top most faces and assign it its own vertex group.

enter image description here

With the inner walls hidden and the 3 vertex groups selected, invert the selection then delete what is selected.

6: Select vertex group "ground level 1" and with snapping enabled extrude up to the hight of the Upper wall face.

7: Repeat for "ground level 2" vertex group.

We can now delete the vertices of the wall upper face vertex group.

enter image description here

8: For the outer walls inner surfaces we can use a solidify modifier.

enter image description here

Unhide the Inner walls and box room and manually create collision surfaces for them.
