Well, I don't know what happened to my thread, couldn't find it anywhere. Oh well.

Added new update.

Just in case you don't know, I am not basing this on any particular version of Samus, but I am doing my own rendition using a compilation of all the different versions. I am going to make her a little more gritty, but not too the point where she is covered in junk.

Let's see. I haven't posted in here much, but I think I'm going to start doing it more. I traveled fromt the far land of HL models so it's kind of a new learning experience jk2/q3. I like it. Anyway my general knowledge still holds some validity so here goes:

Samus is looking good don't get me wrong, but maybe the head showing through the helm isn't the best way to go. Hear me out...how many polys is here head? That number could easily be distributed all over the rest of the mesh making for some KICK ASS detail in the armor. And from the looks of it, the armor is what inspired you in the first place. Most people that look at samus as a cool character jump to the armor. And seeing is how you chose the suit she obtains in Super Metroid (SNES) you may need those extra polys in certain areas.

This is just a suggestion. Even if you don't think about it, do me one favor? Don't mess up the boots. They're my favorite part of the suit. From the pointed knee cap down. :)

Man this is awesome. I can't wait to play as Samus Aran. Will you have a version that you won't be able to see through the mask? I like the character for the armor suit, not the girl inside. But its cool either way. Good job.

This model is looking great, it's gonna kick @$$ when it comes out. Could you make Case, the Marine from the game Doom, next? Here is a reference pic:

http://www.planetquake.com/polycount/cottages/supergirl/

Just go here and scroll down until you see the "Case" pic, you can click on it for a bigger image. It's the third picture down i believe.

07-29-2002, 01:15 AM
Looking good. I like the new skin better.

Ok, I want you to keep the see through visor. I think it was cool and something that people never do. Also the girl inside the suit is very much part of the character, so don't complain. She could kick your ass anyday anyway. :D

I would still like to know what you are ganna do about the gun arm.

Also how are you ganna do the team skins? I'm thinking that the teamskins should look radically different from the standard. Sure it is a lot more work but it adds a lot to the model to have a choice of multiple cool skins (at least in FFA/Duel).


BTW, I think that the other topic got erased for some reason, cause I know I had some posts on it but it says that i only have 1 post.

It's lookin great Kman. I have to say, at first I was thinkin, what the heck is he doing, but now I will have to say that this is really quite accurate from what I see. Plus I have always been a huge Metroid Fan. And hopefully you won't be as slow as the Yoda team was. I have faith that you won't dissapoint us on Samus.

hmm clever, disguising a request as flattery

i dont think its gonna get you anywhere tho

i expect kmans still gonna point you in the direction of the request thread:)

I guess it was answered in this models previous thread but ive looked through this one and cant find how you are gonna deal with the gun arm?

Yikes! Sweetness! Man, I clicked the link, then watched TV for a few seconds. When I looked back at the sceen, the amazing detail of the model shocked of the model shocked me half to death. I wish I had 1% of your skill, Kman.

lol its funny because everyone is like WOW THIS AMAZING NOW GO MAKE SOMETHING ELSE LIKE LINK OR GTA3 GUY!!!1!1

but on another note, it realy is fantastic kman, and i love ur attention to detail. Question. Are you going to make it so the helmet is removable like the cloack and stuff.

And if i may ask what happened to absath and bloodriot?

08-22-2002, 03:29 PM
I still like my "strap it on her back" idea. If you did that you could say you included it without it getting in the way. The only problem is that it would eat up a lot of poly's....

Well one thing you could do is make the gun arm really big and place the weapon inside it by doing stuff to the skeleton so it looks like the gun arm is shooting, but if you used the light saber it would look messed up. Their also could be a few problems with the weapon inside the arm. Anyway, great job on the model Kman!

If he has anymore updates he'll post them. Until then just sit tight and wait. I don't think he's waiting for someone to ask. He'll post em when he posts em.

Still working on her. School stared for me this week, and I've got a pretty full load. However none of them are modeling classes, so I will be able to make time for her. I've modeled down to her knees now.

<JOTD>Jedi Hunter
09-15-2002, 03:13 AM
Curious, Kman have you compiled any sounds for her? If so aer they custom? I would find that to be quite intresting. Anyway, good luck in school man. ;)

About the sounds- I'll get to them when I get the rest of her sorted out. And I have a pretty good idea of what I'm going to do.

Just for the conversational value, what are you planning to do with them? Ganna try to rip them from the Gamecube game that's coming out?

icepool
09-16-2002, 04:39 PM
Kman the model looks great. As for everyone that cant wait to see this model finished well no one realizes how much homework you get in college compared to high school. Seriously high school is a joke. And most people believe if your going to an art college like the art institute or something that the homework is a joke because its not a real college. Wrong the homework is worse and is more time consuming. So I imaging that most of the models in these forums are gonna take a long time to complete.

*tss tss tss* Where's her @$$? Seriously, there's no butt plate. The jet pack doesn't look like it could even blow dry someones hair. The boots need some tweaking too. I'm pretty sure I remember pictures of a molded calf muscle on them. The ridges on the shoulders should be raised a bit. If her head is still under her helmet, you should just can it. I don't care if its "COOOOOOooooooool!". You won't really see it that much in multiplayer and those polys could be better spent on more detail on the suit, which is what the character is really all about anyway.

Matt-Liell
09-18-2002, 07:45 PM
keep up the awsome modelling kman! u r one of the best modellers ive ever seen! that model is better than the samus in super smash bros melee! i only ask 1 question, what program(s) did u use?

KMan
09-18-2002, 08:06 PM
Thanks for the imput. I've added a little more room where her buns would be, and tweaked a few more areas. I've split her up and I'm going to finish unwrapping her.

Yadu- I'm using 3ds Max 4

Matt-Liell
09-18-2002, 08:15 PM
thats why it looks awsome!:) youve got mad skill there kman, one last question. did you buy 3dsm or did u download it. if u downloaded it can u tell me where, but i doubt u did. i dont think u can get it anywhere! i just wanted to know cause i am a skinner but i want to start modelling too!

KMan
09-18-2002, 09:08 PM
I didn't download it, and I didn't buy it. I didn't have the cash for it, and downloads are usually corrupt or incomplete. I used a copy of the actual install disc.

CheshireKat
09-19-2002, 12:12 AM
Lookin Sweet Kman! Funco had a teaser box out for this I picked up the other day, and the first thing I thought of was you. hehe.

Cant wait to see her done.

09-19-2002, 12:22 AM
I tought you dropped this, glad you didn't. Apart from minor glitches that have already been mentioned, very good job! The only thing that bothers me a tiny bit are her arm; impossibly too far away from her body:).

BTW what happened to your Rocketeer?

Considering what I saw in Super Metroid, see has to have room for it. Otherwise it would be a very tight squeeze.

KMan
09-20-2002, 12:02 PM
Well, something happened to my max file of samus that has completely pooped it out. I can't render it, can't edit uvw map, can't export it to something I can import back clean, and probably a number of other problems. I'm gonna continue messing around with it, and see if there is anything else to do. May have to go back to a very early version and start over.

TheWhiteRaider
09-20-2002, 03:55 PM
Ouch..

Psynex
09-20-2002, 04:57 PM
you can try an import export game. Import it into another 3d editor like gmax, then export it as an MD3 from gmax to re-import it into max. Something of that nature.

KMan
09-20-2002, 05:03 PM
What other programs, other than Max5, can open/load a .max file from 3ds max4? That's where my problem is. I already had one of my buds that has v5 load it up, ,and they were also not able to export it as a .3ds or any other format without it crashing.

This happened after I broke up the model into pieces to begin unwrapping. I may have to try re-attaching everything, then see if it will export. I can't see how it is too complex for max to work with... oh well. I may see if I can find any progs that convert max - maya and vice/versa. Like Polytrans, or something like that. I am still going to try using the max vers at my school (vers 4.3) and see if I can work it over from there.

FluxHavoc

As a lesson next time for modeling, always make backups.

My method is this:

I work on a file, say... my elf model. My naming scheme would be nightelf01.max. About every 30-60 minutes I increment the number and save-as to another file. So later I would have nightelf02.max, nightelf03.max, so on and so forth.

I've gone up to 40s and 50s doing this. Eventually you can delete them all and just keep the latest copy. This method doesn't hog TOO much drive space (max files are generally 1-2megs large). This method really REALLY saved my arse so many times, especially when the stuff I'm working on starts becoming corrupt... I can easily backtrack to an older file and keep working. I'd lose something like 30 minutes of work, but no biggie.

KMan
09-21-2002, 04:57 PM
Yeah, I make backups as well (including the max autobaks) but I do them in shorter increments, and I usualy keep it between 5-10. So it didn't take long for me to go too far. I haven't tried to fix the model yet, been busy with schoolwork (NWN mod development). But not to worry. If I can't get it to work right, I could always start over. Not like I'd wan't to but it would be better than what Ive got now. I just wanted to be able to have it done by the time Metroid Prime is released.

Chris4sox
09-21-2002, 10:54 PM
Thats quite a problem you have there.
I know what it feels like to lose a lot of work, its a pain.
I have been watching the progress on this project for some time now and must say I am quite impressed. your model has turned out better than I first anticipated.
I myself made a model of Samus(non game model), in fact 2 different models, and many other Metroid related models.
You can see my second Samus model here,(and yours is also on that page I see)with some of my other stuff.(The Chris Chicoine ones.)

http://www.classicgaming.com/mdb/fanart03.htm

Anywho, if you cant correct the problem you are having I would be willing to help, as a different version of Max may do the trick, I have versions, R2.5, R3.1, and 4.2. And could try to re-save it/export it there if you like, cause I love SW and I love Metroid, and I wanna see this model a success.

Shamless advertising= www.metroidclassic.com its not my project, but I worked on it a bit, now go.

my email is chris4sox@yahoo/hotmail.com

09-22-2002, 04:45 PM
the model was the best ive seen of kmans yet too.....oh man, come on it has to work, he must finish it, it IS his DESTANY!

KMan
09-23-2002, 04:47 PM
Ok, good news. I figured out what the problem was.
When I was separating the model into separate objects to unwrap, there was one object (part of the left side of her foot) that was causing the error. So I deleted that, and I can now go back and start the unwrapping process again. Yay.

TheWhiteRaider
09-23-2002, 11:54 PM
Thanks for the good news. Had me worried there.

09-24-2002, 12:17 PM
Just Wondering Kman when you finish it is there going to be more than the original color skin (a black version would be awesome)

KMan
09-24-2002, 09:50 PM
Ninja- Most likely I will make recolors of all of them so there is no time spent waiting for other people to do that. I'll also do some variants to the recolors so they have a little different character. This will be a pretty big d/l when I do finish it. All the textures are going to be large and in charge, with lots of details.

_NinjaGaiden_

I plan on having it done by the time Metroid Prime is released for Gamecube.

KMan
10-03-2002, 11:00 PM
Yes it is coming out in November. Most likely the 24th (just a guess). Anyway, I have finished unwrapping the model, and I'm segmenting her now.
This will be my first attempt at getting her in game, so I'm bound to run in to problems.

Matt-Liell
10-04-2002, 09:47 PM

There is not going to be a head on the inside of this model. If everything goes well getting the model working in game, and I have the time, maybe. That's a very slim maybe. The polycount with the head goes over 3k. Right now she is at about 2800.

Lay off a bit. Your last 3 posts have been asking the exact same thing. KMan's been crystal clear about when there'll be updates and pictures, so just be patient and stop nagging him about something he's already answered.

KMan
11-11-2002, 02:31 AM
Update- buzy as all get out, so I haven't been able to get the model rigged. I may need to call in some assistance to get her ready by the time I need it done.

Psynex
11-11-2002, 10:36 AM
Was that a hint at a series-hype release (releasing Samus for JK2 the same day that Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion)? That's a good idea, but you'd need to hury; I think the games are coming next week!

On a side note, and slightly off topic...Kman I read a post on Polycount in the Invader Zim thread where you mentioned some sort of dual-lighting/environ-map(?) shader to give it a more cartoony look. If you don't mind could you explain that a bit more, maybe show some code because it could be very useful to me. I didn't want to put this here but didn't really know how else to ask other then siging for a n00b account at polycount.

No, that was just a bit of code to help out psynex. I might use that, if I have time.

I did however talk Toonces into helping me out with getting her in game.

Psynex
11-12-2002, 02:16 PM
Didn't mean to confuse the others in this thread. Thank you Kman for posting that info there for me. I did end up coming across a small tut on that by pure coincidence about an hour after I posted that question. Your approach is sliiiiiiiightly different so I'll have to experiment. Thanks again.

The model is looking great. I'm a fan of Metriod but can't buy it when Prime comes out, simply because I have been converted to the side of the Xbox, but yeah, model looks great. Can't wait till it's out.

DrakkenVII
11-13-2002, 03:56 PM
Im not a fan of game cube..
Or nintendo as a whole for that matter..
I'm not buying a gamecube just for one game
(which would be metroid prime XD)

IMHO MEtroid and Zelda are the only on-going reasons nintendo still makes any money.. The majority of their other games can be bought on other systems or are just plain childish..

Sorry a little off topic on my part there Kman.

KMan
11-14-2002, 03:09 AM
Another update as the deadline approaches:
Toonces has gotten a working version of her in-game, and I have gotten the shaders all set up. I just need to finish the skins, get the sounds in there, and set up the bots, and she'll be out the door (unless I forgot about something).

Thanks for the update.

Nintendo makes just as much as the rest of the companies. Though Metroid and Zelda are some of their bigger sellers. One thing is also Nintendo bought out the rights for the next 5 Resident Evil games from Capcom I think. Anyways we should get back on topic.

KMan
11-14-2002, 10:38 PM
Actually, you should have stayed on topic, and not replied to his out of topic comment. If you want to talk about Nintendo start a thread in the General forums, or better yet, browse through the ign forums and if you think what they are all talking about is rational, and has any sort of semblance to being serious, by all means commit yourself to a sanitarium.

It will be released the week of November 18th, 2002. Is that good enough? Heh.

On a side note, (I can actually talk about this, now) Jedi Outcast for the XBox and Gamecube will be featuring extra MP models that can be unlocked. One of them is going to be Count Dooku/Darth Tyrannus, which I had a great time working on. Just wanted to 'pimp' that out as well. There are some other good community models that are going to be in there as well.

In case you noticed the same camera angle as the last one,

Hey I have been sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for this model. Metriod is one of the first games I ever played and I have played almost all of the games(And beat them with in the best time. A.K.A. Samus out side of her suit.) And besides if you want to go on about me do PM me so we do not fill up Kman's thread.

Holy crap... thats perfection!

I 2nd, 3rd, and 4th that. :D

skiner: stop with the off-topic posts, please. As far as I have seen, 99% of your posts have been either offtopic or repeating themselves over and over. Enough.

All others: as for closing this thread....well, it's KMan's thread, so there no point in doing it. I will leave it to his judgement.

Evertime someone posted one off topic post you are always there to say "Lets stay on topic guys" like your a fag. And Kman post stuff about the Metroid games and you never say "Lets stay on topic guys".

And I love the model Kman and Metroid Fusion!!!! :p

Relax. If there's been no news posted, that usually means there's no news to post.

Seeing as how the model is just about at the release state, I don't imagine there would be much news between now and then other than, "It's been released."

So chill. Have a drink. :drink3: :cheers:
And wait patiently like the rest of us.

Yeah i totally agree with that. I am, like pretty much everyone else here, a big Metroid fan. The skining is awesome but the head should be smaller and the shoulder pads and stuff bigger. Other then that its great. I know i could never do as good of a job as him. I think some good reference pics could be found at www.metroid.com or if you buy Metroid Prime, there are some good shots of Samus. :) BUT GREAT MODEL. CAN'T WAIT!!!! :D :D :D :D

I do not need reference pics for the model, it is finished.
As for the size of the head and shoulders, they were scaled to fit with the skeleton, and not clip into themselves during animation.

same here but i think Kman is tired of hearing it from us!:rolleyes: he will release it when he is ready guys! if he isnt posting updates its cause there is nothing to update which means its almost done! be patient my young padawans!

I'm really sorry for the long wait. I'm just struggleing mightly with the deformations on the arms. I'm attempting a very progressive weighting rig right now that giving me confidence we'll be finished soon. I'll have a new glm out to KMan tonight for testing :)

Not too much longer guys, bear with me

It's come a long way and since I saw a screen on the polycount forums of the shaders in a low-lit area of the map, I can't wait to rip open the pak to learn from it. ;) Kman, please don't take offense to that. I'll definately use it in game, but there is so much more for me to awe at.
Toonces, you're a busy bee. I saw that JK2 was released for gamecube not too long ago; what happened to the post you were going to put up about the community models in the console version? I'd go rent it to find out, but it's too much work to unlock characters for which I could just go download. I'd rather just read a write-up. Sorry to go off topic sllightly, but it stears away from the...."I want this now or my legs will fall off!" posts.

12-02-2002, 02:33 PM
I'm still going to do it, I just have to compile a list of everybody from here who has stuff in the game. The short list I have right now is KMan, Arco, Myself, Spacemonkey, Sithlord-II, Cheshire, Garik, Luuke, and Grafox. Those are the names I reconise from the credits, but there are a few names I'm not sure on and I didn't want to leave anybody out so I held off a bit. It'll be on the front page within a day or so :)
