Universal Model
Right first off, ima ask for a withness, dont take me wrong that im idle or something but i just wanna make sure that this idea doesnt get stolen, i had this idea some time now,
what im doing right now is; im creating a jka model, wich is fully customizable, not via the create a jedi screen but by editing the .skin files, meaning that ppl will no longer have to try to create theyre own models or make skins were everything seems flat
i made this forum for a few reasons,
-So ppl can tell me theyre suggestions of what i should add
-So this idea doesnt get stolen :p
-So i can keep u updated

neways so far i have
-a model
-a cape
-a hood (reborn hood)
-a mask (spider man style)
-a normal face

don be shy now and gimme your suggestions :)

Interesting. You do know that there's a sort of universal female model, "Leela"? Kind of the same idea. Good luck on this though. :)

Shady-D 09-28-2004 08:22 AM

hmm now that you mention it, i totally forgot, to make things clear this isnt an attempt to re-enact the leela model,

LightNinja 09-28-2004 09:23 AM

i think many ppl has had that idea, i had it too but it would be much polys for weighting :xp:

Shady-D 09-28-2004 09:50 AM

not really hard to weigh... just a few extra parts to weigh

Miko Reglia 09-28-2004 02:26 PM

All I'd want to see are Jedi robes...:cool:

keshire 09-28-2004 08:15 PM

Might as well do a custom saber along the same lines.

If you would like I can contibute something I was working on. But never finished. (All the jedi council saber designs within one glm, many buttons, shafts, and grips) :)

Shady-D 09-29-2004 07:47 AM

posting pics soon, btw okay jedi robes? can be done, also i had this thing in my head about the a medievil armour kinda torso, you know.. uhm how to explain uhhh Think Sauron. gonna post pics soon just not on my own pc ATM

Btw Keshire dunno but would be nice to release both at the same time you know, so ppl will have full custom skins, with theyre own custom saber to go with it ;) dunno think about it

Kain 09-29-2004 12:22 PM

Trenchcoats - both the kind that fall about half-way down the shin and the 'Neo' style that brush across the floor.

Lei Hng Wei 09-29-2004 03:59 PM

Must have trench coats! Then I can try and make a Lei Hng Wei skin. :D

Are you going to include multiple heads and hairstyles?

good idea, btw trenchcoats your right :D See? I knew the lucasforums could help me think of more customizability (dang thats the hardest word i used today :p) neways here are the pics of what ive got so far, its not really much yet but just to let you know that im really doing this

Teh Guy With The mask Over His Head

Teh Super Pimp Him Self

Caped Version of all 3

For the hairstyles, I think there should be multiple parts for the hair. For example, there should be something like hair_fringe, left_bang, right_bang, hair_back, hair_long_back or something along those lines. That way people can customize the hair a bit more intricately with alpha mapping, and they can just turn off the bits they don't want.

For more ideas with hairstyles, just copy some wacky FF hairstyles. :D

NIGGA PLEASE!!!!! (not meant discriminating!) i weighed jimesu's samurai and lemme tell you that aint fun lolololol, he had like 6 headparts, roflmao oh well guess its gonna be released soon, so i think i can handle this :)

Ninja you remind me of my alter ego NinjaX :p j/k yeah i was planning on doing this gold armour with well a kinda saiyan look but still sauron style so it will be all pointy (sauron) and at the same time be some sort of triangle around the torso (saiyan) :D
btw didnt got a chance to do anything at all today :/ oh well
btw jimesu that was kinda what i was planning but since not many ppl know how to Alpha map, i think ill trow in some solid hairstyles as well

Shady-D 10-07-2004 09:20 AM

Today i have brought you 3 new add-ons
1- WINGS! W00t! :p mwauhahah

Next on the list is Headband (not really much)

ZBomber 10-10-2004 05:31 AM

MarcusLeCoy 10-23-2004 08:12 AM

Shady-D 10-25-2004 10:39 AM

saw it on pcgm yeah sure you can skin the model actually, see the thread named "chance of a lifetime" in JA skinning...

MarcusLeCoy 10-29-2004 11:47 AM

but the one on pcgm was rushed....
the v2 will be a lot better..

Shady-D 11-03-2004 10:02 AM

time for updates ! moddeled trenchcoat and the whole thing is weighed, now a friend of mine skinned half the stuff now i need another (or ill ask him if he wants to skin the rest as well) btw was inactive due to Fable :D cool game but a bit childish if u ask me

Shady-D 11-04-2004 10:43 AM

awwwww great, just fu****g great! :swear: teh model crashes, i already thought it was all going way to smoothly :( :firemad: if anyone would like to know the error is crashing jka than says :" MAX_INDEX_SHADERS hit" or something though i can play with it in-game after a while it crashes 3 to 5 mins

CaladienJedi 11-04-2004 11:42 AM

try removing all models/maps but that one and see if it works

Shady-D 11-04-2004 11:47 AM

no not really my main tester has this prob too so....

90SK 11-04-2004 05:13 PM

Ach, I hope you fix this. It sounds like it will be a very good model. My condolences about your troubles, but I am unable to assist.:(

Shady-D 11-04-2004 09:21 PM

its okay, i mean somone on this forum must know whats wrong right? or else ill try other forums for help

Shady-D 11-21-2004 11:57 PM

well hmm. guess no one really have had this problem, guess ill just have to reweigh, this will also give a me a chance to re-model the trenchcoat cuz it deformed really poor.

90SK 11-23-2004 01:02 PM

Perhapse (if its not too much trouble) you could also add on a flat face? That way f someone wanted to have their skin have a mask on, it wouldn't look all screwish. Either way, this will be a great model. Fabulous job!:D

Shady-D 11-24-2004 02:28 AM

dont quite understand what u mean, but i got this spiderman head included

90SK 11-25-2004 09:38 AM

Thats good enough.:D What I ment was something like the face of the Darth Revan model: flat, so if someone wanted to have, say, Revan's mask on the model, it wouldn't look screwey (no, I'm not planning on skinning Darth Revan from your model:p )
