Hands and stuff

Postby Ghostface on Mon May 16, 2005 11:02 pm

We (especially I) were a little busy with real life last week, so sorry for the lack of an update last week (if you want to know why check my .plan).
Anyway on to the news, lets start with our brand new handmodel done by TheFrog4u. Furthermore a very nice map model by Jerome, who joined the team as an all-round talent.
This map model will be featured in some upcoming (new) map shots of my desert map (which quite changed alot).

I also did a nice new fake-advertisment for the billboard also featured in my map. I hope nobody is offended by it, however you shouldn't be interested in vampire games anyway if you are.

Also the guys at game-overdrive.com interviewed azelito and me, the 3 pages long interview can be found here.
In other news six joined the team as mapper, and of course a new track from the Nosferatu Soundtrack by Parapraxis.

Hands look great, and that caterpillar model is awesome. And as always a great track, gives a cold dark feeling.

Keep it up guys.

First I have to comment that beautiful Jesus (isn't it Jesus?) picture. It looks that good so you could think it was published by a sect. Really cool!

Now to the caterpillar. I think it looks very ordinary. Where are the lots of blood? I want more blood! And maybe you change the color or differ it ingame (maybe you should make a green and a blue one).

Now to the hands. If I compare them to the hands in Counter Strike, they look really nice. But having better-looking hands than CS should NOT be the goal of this game. By the way, this goal is almost reached :wink: . I don't know how the arms look, if they are skinned and used in the game, but if I see them as they are here, I don't agree with them. I think they look unnatural, especially the fingers. I think you should plan a workaround with the polygons or make some good skin to cover one or another ugliness!

I hope for further good progress!

uhoh dont make any comments regarding frogs ugly hands lol. Well believe me they are fine and better than most handmodels from other games/mods (you wont believe what bad handmodels some games have, you dont notice it ingame tho).

Oh and btw. afaik are all cat - catterpillars yellow :)

wtf.. these are MY hands.. and I don´t mean the model: I used this one as ref: http://mitglied.lycos.de/centaurimappin ... Haende.jpg -so stopp saying the fingers are too short.. ok, may my fingers are too short but already make them a bit longer on the model -he.. btw: ghost is right: most handmodels look very wired as model itself but very good ingame -thats a hell of differece -don´t know why?.. w´ll see how they look like..
btw: prepare for the vampire-hands. Model is finished, and me things its better then the human once -we may have had released them before -hehe..

The hands have steadily improved with each tweaking and I think they are fine now (I'm withholding any further compliments 'till I see them animated... :wink: ).

BTW, I just got eatme's joke.

I'm slow.
