Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
:lol:

Oh god, I know what that's from too.
I remember a certain fanfic about a certain somewhat hapless trouble-seeking commisar, which starts with him making a bra-raid on a Adepta Sororitas compound, blaming said raid on fellow commandos, later in life being put in charge of a penal regiment, blowing up a huge ork compound with said penal regimen, witnessing the death of the penal regiment after running away from the ensuing waaaagh that was chasing them, meeting the warboss 1 on 1, killing him with a melta or krak grenade which he put in said warboss's mouth, with his hand, with predictable results, and befriending a space marine chapter (was it salamanders or something?) and getting what basically amounts to "avoid-inquisitorial-questioning-for-free" card (later he became an inquisitor himself if memory serves?).I think his name started with M or something, i'm not sure.

The "DRIVE ME CLOSER I WANT TO HIT THEM WITH MY SWORD!" part was somewhere around.. dunno, the raid on the ork compound, before it blew to all hell?


if somebody has a link to that fanfic, i'd be grateful.

It sounds like someone took the Cain novels and made them even more ridiculous.

No, thats derived from the meme that the fic spawned.

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
Hey mjn.mixael

Fantastic work on the cutscenes so far! Incredibly impressed with what you've been able to achieve, given the time and resource constraints (no talent constraints obviously!).

Blessings man!

btw... would love to be able to contribute to the project, but my skills lie squarely in the realm of software engineering (Delphi, .NET, C++, PHP), so very little experience with modelling. Can anyone point me through to a "Modelling for dummies" site, or possibly even a beginners thread on HLP?

Thanks guys!

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
Depends on what you want to start learning.

Just making models/texturing or maybe rendering and image editing? (maybe you could check on the modding section, there are a few tuts already started there).

Also, if you are actually gifted with c++ you could consider giving the modders like Mjn a hand by developing the different modifications they ask to the source code project, I know Mjn was waiting for a better cbanim format IIRC.

It's a good start, yes. You may be interested also in FSF's new! shipbuilding tutorial here: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=74591.0 and the whole FreeSpace Modding board.

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
Thanks for the tips guys!

Mjn, I can't promise much on your 2 coding requirements, but would like to take a look at utilities / their source code and at least familiarize myself with them a bit.

Will PM you...

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
Cory is still tweaking the Vasudan mesh, however he has started to try some various textures. I'm guessing he hasn't really UVed it yet because this looks box mapped, but here you go.

I know he was trying several things to try to get the right scale type look. This looks pretty close to me. Thoughts?

Feedback much much appreciated.

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters
Lookin' good! Especially the back end drawings... How do the barrels end?

The arm-like thingy in the concept art, on top of the barrel, looks kinda flimsy to mount on a weapon. It'll also be in the way of the visor.

Re: MjnMixael Makes Characters





The back part is unfinished as of now.


FSF, sorry for not responding earlier, i've made these three to show off the whole mesh.

As for the side handle, i've got a different way of dealing with that one in particular. you'll see once i get to it.
