I am very proud of the work I have done on this helmet thus far. I'll post pics of it in game once I'm in the "testing" phase, but for now, here's a peak of it in Gmax. :D

If you look at my Darth Malak Retexture (http://www.lotrrpg.com/screenshot2.jpg) (click link for picture), he was made to be rather similar to Vader. This is just an idea, but if I put the Vader head in place of Malak's head, it may look good. Though it may be out of proportion, depending on how big the Vader mask gets. If we ever discover a way to import full models, I will gladly make a full-body Vader. :)

Orsan made a better one (no offense Rivahl) of Darth Malak to Darth Vader. Link not available

Well, mine was only supposed to vaguely resemble his armor; not be Darth Vader incarnated. And if you look, it does resemble his armor due to the black/grey color patterns. ;)

I was looking at Malak in game compared to around the size the helmet will have to be to not look stupid, and Malak may be a bit too skinny, anyway. :/

We can't make models with animations, so body will not work. We'll need to retexture something

YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!! that looks so freakin sweet. i'd replay the game for Vaders helmet. are you going to make it so we find it somewhere in the game. or as a spawn item. i think you should do both for the inpatient people. like me.also make it shiny. like his was. Sweet dude, yes

Rivahl
06-24-2004, 06:19 PM
like me.also make it shiny. like his

Those pictures are 100% untextured. That's the raw model in Gmax. :) Of course, it will be shiny and won't be green and blue. >_>;

I'm having some difficulties getting the export/import to work, since I'm used to using more... advanced tools than Gmax (tools I don't have access to at home-- I use Maya at school). But Cchargin is helpin' me through it, so it should be released at most in a few days.

I just wanted to say that, in the time that I couldn't get the Vader helmet exported from Gmax or imported for KotOR, I've started and made serious progress on both a Stormtrooper and Boba Fett helmet-- which will be released later on. I intend to also do a Clone Trooper helmet and, if I don't get too board, a Royal Guard helmet (Palpatine's red-garbed guards).

Figured I'd give ya all a heads up!

Oh yeah, do you mind showing us some pics of the boba helmet and the stormtrooper helmet?

kampher
06-27-2004, 08:55 PM
I hope you figure out how to export the helmet in. I would drool over a clone trooper helmet, and a royal guard helmet. is there a way to make like a pike? Like the ones the royal guards use?

Rivahl

Stormtrooper (http://www.lotrrpg.com/stormtrooper.jpg)

Preview of the Stormtrooper Helmet.

Kampher Said:

Due Cchargin's help and his magnificient tools, I have gotten Darth Vader helmet into the game. But, I haven't textured it yet. Texturing will take some time, but once I've done it it will be released.

Oh, and I'll release an image of the Boba Fett helmet once I'm done modeling it. Right now... you wouldn't like what you saw.

Hey, it's not possible to make armour models yet, right, cause once it is i really want someone to turn the sith armours into stormtroopers.

Mav

@ Capo

I am not sure, but I think it is possible to make new armor models, all I know is that we can't make models that have animations with them i.e. lightsabers and the extending of the blade, but I don't know if armor have animations attached to them. If someone who knows more about this than me could correct me please do:D

hello all,

Armor models, clothing models, underwear models, etc.. don't have animations, BUT they do use skin mesh, and skin mesh is giving me problems right now.

Rivahl,
You are a GOD!
First an E-11 blaster, now a Stormtrooper helmet!:D :D :D

Mav

cchargin,

Thanks for clearing that up, as I didn't understand it fully, seeing as I have never taken a computer class past the basic one required to graduate from my highschool which is basically "how to type in microsoft word" ....lol

Rivahl

About the stormtrooper helmet...

It's a very complex model. The file size of the extracted ascii .mdl is six times that of the Vader helmet. Because of this, I don't know how simple it's going to be to get it in game. It might not be possible, so pray-- but don't get your hopes too high.

I felt you should be all be warned.

And as for the Vader helmet... I'm still struggling to texture it. >/

Jackel
06-29-2004, 06:39 AM
Riv : what about dropping the detail down a notch or three ?

maybe make the front solid and use textures to make it seems more detailed then it is

kampher
07-02-2004, 05:48 PM
Yea im checking everyday here to see if your helmet came out.

Any expectancies as to when you will be done?

Patience is a key word here guys, I mean you can trust most of the modders here are doing their best to create their mods and get them out for download, it really isn't helpful to just keep on posting things like "is the mod ready yet" , "how much longer till you release the mod". Please just be patient and give the guy some time.

I wonder how many of the newer members have read that ?

I mean i read it , figured it was just the same rules as everwhere else (which they pretty much are) and have been using common sense since

I know how frustratingly difficult modeling can be, and yet you managed to "sculpt" such a good vader's helmet. Props.

Quote from the book (Hybris's theries of gameing in the 21st centery and how to mod them) "Modding is like diammond it takes time to form a perfect stone but if you rush the process you will have a chunk charcoal on your ring. In this case a busted computer in which you have to rebuild from scratch!" end quote

Look out for other quotes for Master Hybris

Riv dude the helm is sweet no doubt but the poly count is beyond insane example bastila’s underwear body model has a poly count of 1678 from her feet to her neck, and fingertips. Your vader helm has a poly count of over 4000 :eek: most mask’s in game are between 100 to 230

This will kill low end systems use the optimize modifier on it to bring it way way, down then i will unwrap it for you.
