Rebel Commando
 
Well, it's been a good three months (atleast) since Monsoontide first sent me his Rebel Commando model ... to which I got sidetracked with various other things such as Clone Ultima. So I got back onto working on the textures for the model, I figure the poor guy probably lost hope.

So after examining the face, it turns out it was just a modified Kyle/Luke head-mesh ... and the mapping for it was the same as Raven's. This would not do!

I went about making the new texture, to my own dimensions and proportions... and then went and fit the new UV-Map to my texture.

The result thus far?

Like a majority of my screenshots, the old one is on the left... my re-mapped, re-textured Rebel is on the right :).

I just saw you post this on the void, its looking really great at the moment, like most of your projects i cant wait to see it finished

Zappa_0 02-12-2006 10:01 AM

If people are looking for the default model, its in MST's endor siege. Just wanted to point that out. And should this go into the skinning forum?

Ruku 02-12-2006 10:04 AM

No, because I was given it with Monsoontide's intention to release it to PCGM and JK3Files.com as a new model. I'm simply reskinning it for him - like I did with Clone Ultima. Team effort :).

Exactly. :smash:

Ruku 02-12-2006 10:32 AM

Reskinning his model, as the ones he sent were *his* attempt at the textures - and asked me to have stab at mine. Just like how NeoMarz sent everyone *his* textures for Clone Ultima, and people used them as base - I made my own.

Let's not get too pedantic about this, it's classed as a model and a model it shall stay - get off my back over the sub-section of a topic. If a moderator has a different opinion, they can move it to what they deem the appropriate section.

Zappa_0 02-12-2006 10:35 AM

you dont give up do ya?

Ruku 02-12-2006 10:38 AM

Give up what??

Stop hi-jacking my thread. It's a freakin' sub-category, stop being petty.

Zappa_0 02-12-2006 10:41 AM

A friend on MSN told me that the commandos face looks like Wrestling Superstar Edge.

Ruku 02-12-2006 10:43 AM

Mine? or the original..?

If it's mine he's refering to... he needs his eyes checked. However I can see a vague similarity to him on the left-hand version. However, the original is simply the Luke Skywalker texture with a beard added over the top...

Zappa_0 02-12-2006 11:06 AM

Yes I know it is, since you said that in your post up there.

Mono_Giganto 02-12-2006 11:48 AM

Looks good. :)

_PlasmA_ 02-12-2006 12:14 PM

Looking great Ruku really come along since you showed the pics on msn and Zappa please stop with this petty argument it just shows how immature you are.

Mono_Giganto 02-12-2006 12:21 PM

It's over, just leave it alone. Last thing either of them needs is for it to start up again. ;)

Zappa_0 02-12-2006 12:35 PM

Nothing is going on here, so just drop it now.

RevanSithLord 02-12-2006 12:46 PM

O....K. So I see there's a big argument going on here on whether it's in the right thread or not. Well, I'd have to agree with Zappa, on the account that IT IS A SKIN. Im not the one to argue, but he is right. I dont wanna go on your badside, Ruku. I love your work and all, but this is a skin in a modeling forum. Though there are good points on both sides, the one on Zappa's side would hold to be the winner. I'm sorry, it's true.

That is all.

Mono_Giganto 02-12-2006 12:56 PM

You saw the big argument? Did you also see the last two posts above yours? :)

RevanSithLord 02-12-2006 01:08 PM

I see mono lol :P

Ruku 02-12-2006 10:42 PM

If this is in the wrong section, than so is Omeewan's Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. However as you saw, Zappa is working with him on that... so he kept his "constructive" argument to himself. This is classed as a model as I was given it personally by Monsoontide, with the intention of having me texture it, then hand it back to him for final additions and release.I have completely remapped this model... once finished, I then need to completely re-weight the model.

I can't possibly make it any clearer, now drop it.

As for the Commando, I should have some shots of the the whole head (not just the face) up within a couple of hours :).

Zappa_0 02-13-2006 07:43 AM

Ive already said omee's threads are in the worng place. Dont get too flustered when you see your thread has been moved later. And thats all I have to say about that.

Ruku 02-13-2006 07:58 AM

I swear to god, it's like talking to a thick, retarded brick wall. The model has to be re-weighted, a skin does not interfere with a model's weighting.... any modeller, skinner or weighter (IB or ]|V|[ for example) can tell you that. Stop coming into threads and putting your feathered foot "down" like it has some weight to it.

You are not a moderator - get that through your head.

One more dubious post from you regarding the model's sub-category, and I will report you to the real moderators.

Let me work in peace, I don't come to my threads to see your pointless, bias, unknowledgable excrement all over it.

Zappa_0 02-13-2006 08:24 AM

Wheres the pics??? you said you was gonna post some pics next time you posted! We want pics!

Ive been around here long enough to know what goes where and what is what. Do what you want I dont really give a crap. And all these skins threads will be moved sooner or later, whenever someone gets around to it. So lets see some pics of your skins and stop your bitching.

RevanSithLord 02-13-2006 08:36 AM

Ok, no more cookies for both of you! lol ;)

Keep up the great work, Ruku.

Off-topic: Ruku, your Avatar, who is that? Im just making sure, cause I have an idea of who it is, but I cant think of the damned name! lol Im sure you'll be like ":o You dont know who that is?!?!?" lol

Anyway ya, keep up the great work. :P

Zappa_0 02-13-2006 08:38 AM

Jennifer Alba I believe it is revan.

Ruku 02-13-2006 08:39 AM

Jessica Alba.

Screens are on their way...

RevanSithLord 02-13-2006 08:49 AM

Oh ok. Thanks. Just got curious. She's so hawt..... lol ;) Anyway ya. :) Keep it up! :D

Tesla(DF) 02-13-2006 10:40 AM

wowie Ruku, great work, re-rigging a model is a pain in the tush eh?

...So basically you threaten to report him to the mods while you spew equally distasteful crap in your own posts. I'm absolutely sure the likes of Kurgan will NOT laugh at you and NOT punish you as well. *Snicker*

---

Well, nice skin as it is. The mouth looks really blurry to me though.

Ruku 02-13-2006 12:39 PM

The quarrels between myself and Zappa are not limited to this thread OR this forum... so excuse me if I've lost my patience and the hold on my tongue along the way, but for god's sake let the issue die. He's not talking about it anymore and neither am I ... as far as I'm concerned, it's all over now.

So you sit and "*Snicker*" all you want about whatever Kurgan will think .... I'm sure re-igniting a presumably extinguished flamewar doesn't go too well in your favour either :). I am here to showcase a model in the Showcase Forum.

If you want to throw in your two cents about what happened... send me a PM. It's what it's there for. Personally addressing something I said to someone (who wasn't you) I consider a private issue... so keep it to Private Messages.

Don't bring this up again.

Ruku 02-13-2006 12:39 PM

Now, as for the point of the damn topic. :P

I didn't notice the mouth looked a little blurry, however since then I've optimised the UV-map, so it should be all sorted out.

I've also started on the helmet too :)

Zappa_0 02-13-2006 01:10 PM

Valtiel and Kurgan are pretty good friends here Ruku. I would be careful of what you do here this isnt haps forums. I would hate to see yourself banned for running your mouth to much. So I would suggest you to calm down. The skin is looking alright.

RevanSithLord 02-13-2006 01:15 PM

Lol Damn, just chill guys. Just leave it. Nice on the model skin whatever the hell you want to call it! :D lol Pretty cool though. Would love to use this new and improved one when released. And then of course I'll reskin it lol. I dunno to what though. A Black Sun Merc maybe? :P

Pahricida 02-13-2006 01:34 PM

you seriously need to ignore a few people, Ruku...

ontop of the helmet .. are those lines not straight intentionally or are those disortions?.
Keep it going!

Ruku 02-13-2006 01:36 PM

Distortions I'm still working out :)

Ruku 02-13-2006 01:40 PM

As much as I'd like to ignore people Pahricida, it's rather hard when they follow you everywhere.

Zappa... I am sick to death of you and your freakin' ego. Don't "suggest" how I handle a situation. Don't give me directions/orders/threats/useless information. I don't "run my mouth" .. I react to you running yours.

What I can't understand is... why, after an agreement we BOTH made with each other... do you then go against the very deal? The deal was you keep your opinions about me and my opinions ... to yourself, and I would do likewise. That and to just not address each other. I kept to my side, but you had to come in here, my thread, with your "I wish a was a moderator" t-shirt glaring, and point out a useless technicality (to which you are wrong on) to solve what?

What were you wanting to achieve? "Wow Zappa, you were right... man I am so silly for posting it in this thread.... now I'll have to continue with the topic until a moderator appropriately decides where it will go." ....

Sometimes your "contributions" to these forums aren't exactly needed - the moderators are big boys, they can run this forum just fine without you prattling in their ears and tugging on their shirts.

Let me guess though, right now you are cooking up another big reply with your various "I don't care about this and that" statements and "You need to ______" crap... guess what buddy boy? I'm saving you the trouble!

I'm leaving LucasForums :) - I can't possibly maintain a healthy topic here when you are trying to trod all over me.

If anyone else would like to stay up to date on this project or many others... please, come visit myself and other great people at Hapslash's Void.

Whilst I'm sure that like as usual, Zappa will make sure he has the last word ... from the thread starter - This topic is closed.

Lathain Valtiel 02-13-2006 01:47 PM

Extinguished!? You made that post I quoted this morning! What a crock.

And I'm sorry, but for that post you DO deserve to be snickered at. LF isn't England, where you can shoot someone who is burglarizing your house and be successfully sued (or at least I hope not). There is absolutely no way you could report Zappa to, say, Kurgan, and hope to come out unscathed.

I have no quarrel with you, you just said something extremely idiotic by all counts and I called you on it. That is all.

Zappa_0 02-13-2006 02:07 PM

Ruku you have serious major problems. I have done nothing wrong here ruku and you damn well know it. I was merely suggesting not to get on the mods bad side, or you could end up like TFP. If you wanna run off crying to haps forums so be it. Do as you wish. I am in the right here, and I have done nothing to you. You just cant get over yourself and cant take nothing people says to you. I suggest you go out and seek yourself some help. And yes you are running your mouth to me over what? Me saying to you nicely that you should watch what you say to them. If you cant take that then you need to get off of all forums and whatever since you cant handle what people says to you. You bring all this on yourself, no one forces you to react like this or nor you should. I say your old enough to not to cry over spilled milk. With the whole model/skin thing, I have been here longer then you to know what a model is and a reskin is, which is what basically started you off. You came here in July 2005 and ive been here ever since May 2002. So dont tell me what I dont know and what I know. Dont let me stop you from posting here, which you probally wont because you like to whine over what ever I have to say. So all I have to say is grow up. Its time you let go of that im the reason your doing all this and accept that it is you, not me. And stop making excuses for yourself. Good Day!
