heres an idea :)

how about you take some of the galak mech model to make him as he looks alot like em just wider thats all.

in thier directory (gamedata/base/models/players/galak_mech) there are two picture files of the skin which are the one already and a greyscaled one. i just replaced the ones that the model use with the greyscaled ones and replaced them with stormtroopers.

Also there is the same thing for protocol (c-3po)

erm... i havent got a models folder in base directory :(

if u got tutorial 4 gmax the making charector tutorial , u reckon i could use that as a base model and slowly change that, cause its a close looking model ( in the torso area) then add a new head and legs and arms ?

if i could do i have to ask permission from the ppl who made it?

to get the models directory you have to open the assest0.pk3 up and extract it into gamedata/base then you can look around

sorry but i aint got a tutorial for modeling as i dont know how to do it

and it would be a good idea to ask the modellers permission as then you wont be in trouble from them for nicking their stuff

if it's possible, make him not hold weapons, but rather have the weapon fire tagged to his arm mounted blaster.

ok tnx 4 the piccys ppl :D

i was thinking about the blaster outta the arm but (very big but) im gonna;
1. need to see if the models any good (like i said its my first so its gonna suck i think) :(
2.if the model works gonna need help with skinning, animation, and the arm blaster/lightsaber.Ill ask 4 ppl when models ready just in case its not as good as u think
3.alot of time so dont expect it too soon (still attempting to get the models to start it with) <---- the extract assets0.pk3 doesnt work theres a file(cfg) in the base folder so god knows whats happened there :confused: )

so im gonna start from scratch :(

ill try and keep ya posted

I don't like to be a drag, but ppl will get angry when you say your going to a particualr model and then they find out that you haven't even started or don't seem to really know what your doing yet.

Don't get me wrong Good Luck and all the best with your model.

But be warned some ppl get very nasty in this forum at times.

Check out all the modelling tutorials you can get your hands on.

Start with the sticky on page 1 of this forum and then head over here - jk2models.cjb.net (http://www.jk2models.cjb.net) and check out the tutorial links in there.

Don't forget the game modelling temple - www.polycount.com

ok bad news ppl :(

the s*** has hit the fan and everythings gone wrong,(including my m8 who was hopefully helping but no longer can) my pc screwed up and lost my model of the torso(which took me ages to do)
i fear by the time ive finished what i would start(again) jedi 3 would be out :( so i would be happy to hand over the job of this model to anyone whos willing to take it on..... its harder than i first anticipated i admit so i think ill leave it to u guys like kinja,sithlord II and bobafett101 ect...ect....once again i appologise to u ppl who hoped 4 this model. :(

FATTEH

p.s u can use this thread if u gonna make the model if not DELETE this thread plz......
