RulesExampleClarification
4
5
Simple models should have a polygon count of under 1,000 triangles.http://i.imgur.com/nJ3OHaL.pngI can't use a model that has tens of thousands of polygons.
6
Handheld props must have their pivot point located where the character will be holding it.http://i.imgur.com/0uRG18g.pngIf a prop is meant to be held by a character, its pivot point must be located at the spot where the character will be holding it.
7
Every model that is not meant to be held in a character's hands should have its pivot point at the bottom-center of the object.http://i.imgur.com/8RFMFlH.pngI can't use a model if its pivot point is floating somewhere in space.
8
Every model should have its transformations frozen.http://i.imgur.com/QjAPLH7.pngI can't use a model that is scaled, rotated, or not in the center of the scene.
9
Handheld props must be pointing "Forward" in the scene.http://i.imgur.com/90J3ATQ.pngIf a prop is meant to be held by a character, it must be pointing Forward in world-space.
10
Before modelling a room, ask me for the dimensions that the room is supposed to have.http://i.imgur.com/VRKDlp9.pngYandere Simulator's high school is designed so that every door, hallway, and room snaps to a grid. Every room modelled for Yandere Simulator must be modelled to exact dimensions in order to fit into that grid.
11
If part of a model is meant to be transparent, the transparent part needs to use a different material than the rest of the object.http://i.imgur.com/r4G4xFy.pngThe "cartoon outline" shader in Yandere Simulator does not support transparency. If an object is meant to have some transparent polygons, those polygons must use a seperate material than the rest of the object.
12
If you are exporting from Blender, you must use the following export settings:http://puu.sh/kn93D/61fc4326d6.pngIf you don't use these settings, your model's rotation / orientation will be incorrect when I import your model into Unity.
13
Whenever you are delivering an asset to me, deliver a screenshot of the asset in addition to the model and the texture.Self-explanitoryIt takes time to load my 3D modelling program, import your model, and apply your texture in order to find out if everything looks okay. It would save me a lot of time if I could simply look at a screenshot instead.
14
Textures should be either 512x512 or 1024x1024Self-explanitorySelf-explanitory
15
3D models should be delivered in FBX format, textures should be delivered in PNG format.Self-explanitorySelf-explanitory

Naming ConventionsExampleClarification
18
19
When naming a mesh, use the following naming convention:A knife's mesh should be named KnifeMesh.Meshes should not be named "Cube" or "Object" or "Default".
20
When naming a material, use the following naming convention:A knife's material should be named KnifeMaterial.Materials should not be named "Material" or "Default".
21
When naming a texture, use the following naming convention:A knife's texture should be named KnifeTexture.Textures should not be named "Diffuse" or "Texture".
22
When delivering an FBX, use the following naming convention:A knife's FBX should be named Knife.FBX
23
If you create multiple textures for one object, use the following naming convention:BookTexture1, BookTexture2, BookTexture3If you model one book mesh and then create multiple textures for variety, append a number to the end of the texture name.
24
25
Units of MeasurementExampleClarification
26
27
Yandere Sim uses meters as units of measurement.When creating models for Yandere Simulator, make sure that your modelling program is using meters or centimeters for scale.
28
A single "space" on the Yandere Sim "grid" is 4 meters wide, 4 meters tall, and 4 meters deep. The distance between the floor and the ceiling is 3 meters. The thickness of a wall is .1 meters.http://i.imgur.com/d2lCc0S.png
29
A corridor is one "space" wide. A classroom or clubroom is 3 spaces wide and 2 spaces deep.
30
A door is 2.25 meters tall. This might seem too tall, but if it's any shorter, then teacher NPCs have collision problems with doorways.
31
A staircase should begin at ground level and end 2 meters higher than where it began. To reach a higher floor, two staircases would be necessary.
32
Every chair in Yandere Simulator - from desk chairs to benches - should be .5 meters tall.
33
Every table in Yandere Simulator should be .77 meters tall.

Texture Art StyleExampleClarification
36
37
Yandere Simulator has a cel-shaded anime art style.http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/276/c/b/mmd_stage_39_by_mmd3dcgparts-d81egts.pngTextures should be somewhat flat, with a slight smooth gradient, and few details.

The following image gallery demonstrates the "look and feel" that I wish to pursue for Yandere Simulator:https://imgur.com/a/kk59t
43
44
All textures used in Yandere Simulator must be original, not downloaded from Google Image Search.You can get into serious legal trouble for using non-licensed textures in a commercial product.
45
Yandere Simulator's models do not use normal maps or specular maps; only diffuse maps.To achieve the anime art style that I'm aiming for, I don't need normals or speculars in the textures.
46
Hair textures should be greyscale.http://i.imgur.com/SNgOxEp.pngThe reason for this is so that I can apply a color to them within the game engine.
