• [MMD] Touhou Model Port
    707 replies, posted
  • As much as i know that not everyone likes the thought of anime models or anything of the sort being worked on or moved, but along the way here I just had an idea of porting the MMD Models (Miku Miku Dance) into Garry's mod for use. Now these have already been rendered in MMD and i have found some plug-ins for Misc 3-D programs if necessary to have them worked on. The link of the Models and the site are below.

But also recently xenoaisam or whoever ported the Touhou Fortress models into Garry's mod, for use. But the MMD models contain much more detail of each character then the TF2 ones, which brings me here asking anyone out there to see if they can help port these models into Garry's mod. Thanks in advance.

  • I'd personally would love to see Flandre and Remilia, but i dunno if Source can even handle those models, considering that their detail comes from almost entirely from their unreasonable polycount.

  • Yeah it's possible, but you're gonna have to find someone who will put in the effort to do it without making it look like crap.
  • I figured that you could lower the Poly count in 3Ds and still keep a fair amount of detail without disrupting it, plus there's alot of bone points cause of the bullet physics engine that MMD uses.
  • From what i've heard, the polycount for MMD models are roughly around the 18k-25k range.
  • Took me a while but i finally been able to port them to Max files, the PMD's need to be converted to .x files via PMD Editor.

Ill upload the .zip file online and thrown in the readme + info on how i converted the models and include the textures/meshes.
  • Only worry I have about this is that MikuMikuDance model creators are usually extremely protective about their work, and will get extremely pissed off for redistribution or modification of their models. Also for some reason, they hate when their models are used in media that depicts violence or mature content. They retaliate by taking the models down from their sites and start hating at us all as Americans. Other than that, I highly approve of this project. I have a few MMD models and I already got as far as to import them in 3DS Max, but I don't know how to do anything with them after that.

  • Worst that would really happen is that the model makers take down and stop distributing their models, get mad at us all, and all their fans (English and Japanese) will come to this forum and thread, and proceed to spam and shit on it. Dunno if we'll get in trouble for that or not. But you just know the anime haters on Facepunch will get a kick out of it.
  • [QUOTE=HeadInjuryGames;23208134]Why not reskin the TF2 models?[/QUOTE] Because the TF2 models are of specific characters. One thing i would like to ask is why don't we use some of the better GTA:SA models?

  • I'm on board for porting more GTASA anime characters. I wonder why Boroko stopped at such few characters. Besides, I have plans for Patricia Martin... Blowtorch-related plans... :smug: [editline]06:21AM[/editline] Might also be good to use stuff like CGtextures.com to mix in a tad of realism. Just a suggestion...
  • I have found a model of Flandre in Blender's format. I dunno if it's any use though. [url]http://dgreater1.webs.com/Touhou/Flandre%20Scarlet%20Fiinal.rar[/url]

  • I agree with using the GTA models, it's much easier. People like Boroko may be able to port more advanced stuff, but he hasn't done anything in a year so don't expect anything new. I was planning on porting more Touhou characters from GTA myself, I have only done Yuka so far. However I'm not pleased with how it looks as a player model and I could never fix it so I never bothered with any more characters. Too bad we don't have more people willing to help.
  • Hopefully i will get further on getting the GTA Touhou Models done since they look pretty well fit already then the MMD ones, if anyone's got any plug-ins or references, it'd be helpful.
  • I have plugins for 3ds Max 9 that allow you to import straight from GTA SA's .dff format, as well as apply the textures from the .txd files. I've ported bits and pieces of the Touhou models as accessories in Oblivion\Fallout, but I lack any real rigging skill and failed miserably at porting to Source. I guess I can upload the plugins and tools that I have if anyone wants to take a shot at the GTA models. I'm pretty sure I still have a bunch of the models themselves lying around as well.

  • Here you go. [url]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3194623/Package%20for%20FP.rar[/url] Included are the importing tools, the texture viewer and a few models to test them on. I'll post a more complete set sometime soon, going to bed.

  • Yes, I know I'm necroing a 2 month thread. I do so cause I'm curious how one can do this as I'm interested in doing this among other projects I'm working on. If so, please let me know.

  • Ah I see. I might do that. I'm just more concerned at the moment of converting to just be able to do something with them any type of modeling program before attempting anything else.
  • Please don't bother me about it. I don't know how to rig or anything (and I have given up on my multiple attempts to do so). As much as I want this to happen, it just isn't going to happen (from me, at least).
  • It's ok, it's not that I was hoping you would rig for me. I just wanted to first try and get the models converted so that they can work in 3D Max and other modeling programs. I believe my answer is in the above posts (I need to learn to read better). If I'm wrong and someone knows how to, please tell me. I'm not saying I'll be making ragdolls or anything of the sort cause I have some other projects to work on, mainly my KOS-MOS models. I am interested in these models none the less. If only I could find that larger/bigger Flandre model. Really bugging me now.
  • Found a model of Flandre in Blender's format, though i'm unsure if serviceable. [url]http://dgreater1.webs.com/Touhou/Flandre%20Scarlet%20Fiinal.rar[/url]
