Hey there all you pirates, Vikings, and/or Knights!

I'm Kanine, and right now I'm working on making SUPER EXCITING HIGH DEF ENHANCED HD GRAPHICS for the weapons in PVK2.

Here's some pictures of what I'm working on!

Also, here's a timelapse video of me constructing the high poly model for the big crossbow!

    Just a quick update: I'm consolidating all the axes materials into one texture sheet just because it seems to make more sense that way. Plus having one material for all the axes saves on memory even if it's a small amount.

    When I finish the materials for the axes I will be moving on to the two viking shield high poly models.

    Which axes are these, exactly? There's only three axes currently in the game, and unless the Zerker's big axe is being significantly redesigned, two of these models are completely new.
    Is the Huscarl getting a one-handed axe to replace his sword or something?
  • KanineKanine PVKII Team, Beta Tester
    edited 1:53PM
    I thought both the Huscarl and Berserker each carried two axe variants respectively?

    Oh yeah wow, I forgot about the Zerker's axe-sword combo.

    The Berserker and the Huscarl both carry a big axe as their primary weapon, but I can only see one large axe in the picture above.

    The wiki might not always be up-to-date, so it would be best to have PVKII installed.

    The long thin axe is the huscarls while the stouter thicker axe is the berserker axe. the smallest axe is the throwing axe while the one between is the sword/axe combo

    If you ask me, the Berserker's 2H axe should look a little more beat up and scratched, more in line with his current one.

    Yeah I'm thinking I'm going to add leather wrappings to the other 2 non-throwing axes.

    Funny since i had no idea what was going on in the video but i ended up watching it all and enjoyed it alot, found it very interesting and kinda looks like fun to do! nice music choice aswell very relaxing!

    The Berserker's primary axe should be a lot bigger than the one in his sword-axe-combo. And, as Ukyo Kuonji already pointed out: it should look a bit 'used'. Of course, this only applies if you want to remake the weapons rather than replacing them.

    Are you going for a higher historical accuracy?

    I'm putting the axes aside while I work on the two shields at the moment. I'm going for a mix of replacing the weapons, vaguely using historical reference, and just making cool looking stuff.

    Btw thanks for all the kind words and constructive crits everybody! :icon_viking2:

    Some bigger dents would do the trick, probably.

    That sort of wear and tear is something I would associate with just carrying the shield and wearing it's edges from all it bumps into, not actual combat wear.

    The metal on the shield was specifically placed in places where a complete wooden shield would most likely crack, so one would assume at least some heavy dent.

    Making a few dents on the rim along the direction of the lines of the wood would make sense to me.

    Also dents are more prone to rust, not that it have to have rust pending on how the wearer stored/maintained it, just saying.

    This has been rewritten.

    I've got a few questions about the shield design. Is it meant to be a Viking shield? It's got some perculiar features. What was the thinking behind giving the shield no cloth or hide covering, and a metal rim, and a handle raised so far above the centre?
    The reason why my writing here is so formal is that people inevitably get annoyed at my writing, so sticking to the rules of formal writing is my attempt to avoid people taking me the wrong way and getting annoyed.
    Complaining and expressing disagreement and arguing are very good things to do.
    If something written by me here does not look formal, it may be because I tried to make it look better than it could were it formal, or it might be that it seems all right to me without it being formal.
