Lotus have you ever thought about combining OG alpha textures with Lugaru's? That would be awesome!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

I find it more awesome if he makes original stuff :)

True to that. Though he could make some more armor

Interesting you should say that about armor, I've been developing a technique for making armor textures in Blender. We should be seeing some nice results soon.

Here's something nice for y'all.
Stiletto

Here's the proof that we can now use non-cube objects in weapons, this was made entirely from a torus. Looks nice, eh?

Yeah, with the new Im-/Exporter, the sky's the limit. Good weapon!

I have a weapon idea that would look awsome. It is called a warglaive and is used in Warcraft 3 by someone called Illidan. Here is a picture for you Lotus

Looks good! But I don't think one would hold a stiletto like Turner does....

No, one would not properly hold one as Turner does, however, soon I can fix this! :wink: *Looks over at rudel*

Well, hopefully that's completely embedded into skeleton / animation data, but I'm not sure yet.
Made some progress on skeletons, far from done though. I now know for certain that a solid's vertices are tied to skeleton parts via vertex indices. So when a skeleton part moves, the associated vertices move along with it. But there's still mysterious parts to it.
For example, let's look at 'Basic Figurelow'.
After all skeleton vertices have been defined, I've got sequences like

Code: Select all

3F E2 39 C7 . # FLOAT
3F E2 39 C7 . # FLOAT
00 00 00 00 . # FLOAT
41 20 00 00 . # FLOAT
3F 80 00 00 . # FLOAT
00 00 00 00 . # FLOAT
After that follow the associated vertex indices, obviously. I don't know what the floats mean exactly though. Yeah, they seem to be xyz components, but what for? Still trying to figure that out.
41 20 00 00 and 3F 80 00 00 also could be some kind of delimiters. Weird stuff!
The byte order after the vertex indices is also puzzling.
I've got something like

Code: Select all

00 00 00 0C . # LAST VERTEX INDEX
01 00 00 00 . # ??
00 00 00 00 . # ??
00 00 00 12 . # NO. OF ASSOC VERTS?
The 01 00 00 00 part is just weird; if it'd be two shorts, it would be 00 01 00 00 instead, if it was a 4b int, it would be 00 00 00 01 instead.

So yeah, good times. Might take some time until I've got this figured out.

If I wasn't completely inept at such things, I would totally make one of those Klingon blade things. Not sure how that would turn out looking in-game, though...
