The place to discuss all things Lugaru.

Will you make models for Lugaru at some point in time?

Bridge, lamp, sign and house are done. The other models have been discarded; reasons for this are in the first post.

I will model weapons for this pack as well.

Once that is done (weapons are rather hard because UV mapping is a tough job), I will upload everything, post instructions et cetera.

I've added a poll to this topic, please take part :)

It's done!

The first group of models is available at http://lugaruspace.50megs.com/modelpacks/

It's divided into infrastructure and weaponry.
Filenames:
ModelPack.Infrastructure.01.zip and
ModelPack.Weaponry.01.zip

The respective .blend files can be found in the blends/ folder at the above URL.

All models are specifically structured into folders.

There are instructions included in each zip in a file called README.txt.

This is its layout:

Code: Select all

INSTRUCTIONS

 Make a copy of your Lugaru/Data folder,
  name the copy Data.ORIGINAL

 In the folders X_becomes_Y, there are
  Data folders. Copy them to Lugaru/
  to overwrite respective models and
  textures in the Lugaru/Data folder

 If you want to play the map demo, copy
  it to Lugaru/Data/Maps, make sure you have
  copied [the needed models] and
  load the map in debug mode
  Command:
  map demo

 If you want to get your original models
  back, please delete or rename the
  modified Lugaru/Data folder, then
  rename the folder Data.ORIGINAL back to Data

 If you build maps or campaigns based on these
  models, remember to include instructions

 The .blend scenes are available as a separate
  download
  URL: http://lugaruspace.50megs.com/modelpacks/blends
  
Here are images of the models:
Image
The bridge - the bigger the better!
Image
The house - modular and collision-friendly (to a certain extent)!
Image
The lamp - well-suited for fires!
Image
The sign - tell 'em where they're supposed to go!
Image
The sword - your hand is well-protected!
Image
The ninja star - very gory when thrown!
Image
The staff - words cannot describe it!

As you probably have already read above, there's a map included called demo.
In that map, all models are put to good use. Worth a try ;)

Here's an overview pic:

Feedback is very welcome! Don't hold back.

Obviously, these models do not go well with maps that aren't built with them in mind.

What's really awesome is when a wolf runs around with a bloody ninja star in its chest.

Read the wiki-entry, that should explain a lot.

And don't post in year old threads unless you have something relevant to add to it.

Blender's awesome. You can even make games inside it.

But those games are severely limited.

You can realize any game you want in Blender. The limitations lie mostly in script performance. The question is how creative you are as a creator - how smart you are in designing your game to leverage what the suite does right.

I'd always recommend a more dedicated tool for game making though if you're into suites that do part of the job for you; something like http://www.yoyogames.com/gamemaker (free), http://unity3d.com/ (free for noncommercial use) or http://www.udk.com/ (also free for noncommercial use).

Thansk for the links. I checked out Unity, I *kind of* made a race course with it. (lol).
