Don’t know if this can happen to other gigs, but I have a 3D Unwrapping gig and one of the requirements is a 3D model, that will be unwrapped. The problem is that the buyer provided me a 3d model that seemed decent, until I started working on it, there were 1000’s of garbage values, vertices, multiple planes, multiple edges that defined no shape, just a mess. Now I was busy with something else so I didn’t start working on it for like 4 days, then once I did, I started sending the buyer messages about the file being like this and was hoping he could provide a different file. He never responded, he did came online a few times but never responded nor provided a new file.
I did the best I could, I fixed most of the file, unwrapped and just finished it. It has taken me around 12 hrs, this was supposed to be a 3 hours at the most work. The underpay is not an issue, the problem is, if the model was better and if I spend another half a dozen hours on it, I might fix it, buy just re making the entire model myself. But now the UV’s aren’t that great and I am afraid the seller will give me a bad rating.
What can be done in such a situation where you have already done more then enough and more then when you were paid for but may end up with a bad review?
I had a question at the start of this message, don’t know if it was this one, am tired and will have something to eat and will take a nap. Seems more like a rant but still will love to hear your advises.
