  • Passed of to JRocket for rigging, and setting up for game. I can't install TortoiseSVN on my apple. Would like to personally thank JRocket for his assistance with this
  • Thanks, the hardest part has always been getting everything exported out and set up for the Source engine for me never been much of a coder, the creation of the model and textures is easy in comparison
  • Hey guys, sorry, have a lot of personal errands on top of a hectic work schedule, barely found time to work on the game. Sunday and Monday I have off, will be my art days.
  • Eh, still prefer the 3 way battlefront style. And yes when one team is eliminated they can continue to play in one of the remainder teams. But have an auto balance so no one team gets all the members of the defeated team
  • How about a 3 way node conquering siege gameplay? Just because Battlefront, LOTR did a 2 party system, doesn't mean we couldn't do a 3 party version. Would be challenging because at some point two teams may set aside their differences and double t…
  • Happy Belated BIrthday Celebration Dance video (Warning, gets weird) https://vimeo.com/113091250
  • End of the month I only get a couple days for myself before starting a whole new month of classes, sorry I have been gone, needed a breather from all my projects for a day or two and be human for a little bit and watched some films lol. Will hit th…
  • @Trar Poly restraints and texture restraints go hand in hand with quality sometimes but so does skill level. I am personally still getting used to melding my knowledge of all these programs together seamlessly. Though I'm making progress, I'm s…
  • @MrMoho You're probably right. Main thing going through my mind at the time is variation in the pattern, battle damage, and grunge. Physics were worked in there as well, it's all under interpretation on the how and why he has a particular featu…
  • @Ukyo Alot of it is painted on, model is 9700 polys, 5000 polys the body alone, majority even is just an optical illusion. You would laugh at what the basic model looks like without textures or normal maps on it haha
  • @Nive & Sphynx Nive is right, I am using a different program for texturing and the camera is set to perspective, not completely straight on which causes some distortion. But I feel it makes him look more human and less Frankenstein like his …
  • Sounds good, several people thought that was a good idea too and it does look like an accessory piece. I'll keep it off the main model. Thanks Colonel
  • @Disturving Thanks for the opinions and part of me agrees. Though based on realism, it is also a game based on fantasy as seen in a lot of the content in the game. Why didn't Aragorn, Boramir, or Legolas ever wear a helmet in Lord of the Rings?…
  • @Links Thanks for the heads up, I'll check later
  • @Pache Thanks for the kind words and the advice. Though I agree that the decor on the crown would make it pop, it makes him look too regal/flamboyant for someone in battle especially since he isn't a king and just a lord. I like the thought b…
  • Why I joined the community, everyone is positive, helpful, and very eager to contribute. Also being pushed helps me finish models . So, as it stands, I believe majority vote is for the small amulet. I'll leave this an open topic till tonight…
  • @Jon Leaving it up to majority vote lol, very much value everyones' opinion. I'm very torn between no amulet or small amulet (pic 1 and 2) so leaving decision all up to you guys Thanks again to Assigir for the lion pattern and the paint over,…
  • Updated Model and texture, decision time about the amulet Amulet, small amulet, or no amulet?
  • lol, funny vid Anyways lol, here's a great vid that's not too old, but the movie is for anyone who ever watched Footloose https://www.youtube....h?v=3T2FpCDlyNg
  • Thanks for the paint over Assigir, looks great! I really like the colors on the tunic, will definitely adapt my texture to it. The emblems also on the shield and the touches of brass. I'm still on the fence about the amulet though, will do a ver…
  • Lol, thought you were gonna post "What What in the butt" or something haha. I remember that vid too. That would go into the classic category .
  • That's the thing, I had him have a crown before but was educated that a Lord isn't a "king" or "kingly" Lord is like a governor. In those days with France invasion of England, Scotland's invasion of England, even Lords fought as the city/castles we…
  • Yay or Nay on Amulet? Keep in mind not grunge treatment but, I'm wondering if the amulet is even necessary or even makes sense for someone to carry into a battle. I know it's in the concept... but... I'll let you all decide. The lion emblem hasn'…
  • @Nive - Thank you for bringing that to my notice, that got passed me. I'll be replacing the emblem with Assigir's embroidered emblem and will watch out for that this time around. Thanks buddy
  • @Disturving I plan to adjust the boots to have more wrinkles at the ankle, maybe more gold trim. I plan to put a necklace on him, that he has on his concept as well. It's close to final but would appreciate any suggestions you may have.
  • Thanks Assigir, looks great, would definitely prefer using that, very much appreciated
  • @Colonel Adding the necklace is putting me above 10k polys, how much wiggle room do I have? I can make it more like a pendant rather than a necklace, would cut down on the cost, but just wondering what room I have in the budget
  • @Links The symbol you used is different in style to the symbol I used. The one I used had a mouth area but was very tiny and between the glare of the shield, the normal map, the small mouth area got lost. Please understand it wasn't your critiq…
  • Thanks Colonel, will be sure to include those as well at next update 10am here, gonna get some shut eye before work will update again either tonight or tomorrow morn/noon. Will read any more critiques when I'm at work later, take care
