Sorry for the lack of updates guys!! My friend almost has the vader skin complete, although the arms and legs still need texure mapping. Here's some updated pics of what I have so far.

I have to admit when I heard someone was making another Vader model I wasn't all that excited, but this really wonderful work you've done here, most impressive. Just have one question, have you been able to animate the cape at all?

Good detail but the body is way too thin.

I have two questions and one was already asked but I will re-state it. My first question is are you going to add the blinking lights on his stomach. My second question (the one that was already asked) are you still going to animate the cape?

P.S. The model looks great!

You can "animate" the cape by attaching the upper parts to the chest, then the lower parts to the legs. That way the legs won't go through the cape.

yes, I still plan on adding custom animations, and animating the cape in softimage if all goes according to plan. I will also add the blinking lights to the skin, and use jk2 shaders to add the shine.

morphius_doh, I agree after seeing the model skinned I can notice things that can be rescaled/changed. I plan on optimizing it after my friend is done skinning. I've already done so on the head which he's completed.

Amazing. It will make a great alternative to Sithlord's

Sweet eye-candy =)

keep it up!

Make sure to ask the guy who is doing the scaling to make sure his is a little taler than the other people in game, I hope you get the animations working..

Exellent work. Two questions though. Does he have caps and does the helmet have the cool shine that sithlordII's did?

nls: When you absolutely positively have to have the best Vader model in the room... accept no subsitutes!

daskers: he doesn't have the caps quite yet, but I'll start that as soon as the texture mapping/skinning is complete. And yes he will have a nice shine, I'll be using jk2 shaders for that.

Great! That means I can slice him up in single player (no disrespect). Looks to be the best Vader yet! (again no disrespect).

07-01-2002, 01:37 PM
I hope he'll have bot support and sounds like the other one that Sithlord-II made.

bada$$ man, make sure and drop me a line when the final production is done. i'll be using him. thanks

Great job, it looks very nice!
I wonder if anyone will attempt to create a Darth Vader with removable helmet?

07-22-2002, 12:39 PM
GodDAMN I had to dig deep to find this thread! A MAJOR bump right here! I don't want to sound like an a*****e, but this is THE model I'm waitin' for. Any updates on this?

Puny modeller. You shall bow down to the great power of Darth Evil, for I shall be your new ruler. If you disobey me, you shall suffer the consequences by getting your head shaved, and getting a noogie for all eternity(Or until I get bored).

Actually, that's a GREAT model!

Keep up the good work!
