  • Is it just the phys on the cliffs that sucks, or are there any issues with the barricades and bunkers? I'm debating whether or not to make some nice physmodels for the cliffs that curve inwards since those are the only things i can think of that really suck.

  • the cliffs should have either really nice physmodels or they should be effect props IMO.

  • Big things like rocks and cliffs and stuff should be effects. Then you can make multiple scales without having to deal with messing with the mass and whatnot in the QC.

  • I didn't know you could rescale effects, care to share the knowledge? I currently have 3 sizes of cliffs, i'll make the largest ones effects and give the others good physmodels. As for rocks, i'll keep the phys on the big boulders and any clusters of rocks i've got can just be effects. And you can make multiple scales of stuff without having to mess with the .qc by using the prop re-sizer tool on gmod.org, like so: (with me standing in the middle for scale) [IMG]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9988278/scenebuildshit/giantquariansattackmenae.jpg[/IMG] Made it in gm_construct's color room because i really didn't want to have to try lighting something huge, managed to do it with 1 lamp for the whole thing :v: Only downside of the prop resizer tool is that it doesn't always resize the physmodel properly so it's suicidically difficult to make scenebuilds with if you're using it a lot. I only pulled this off by copiously using the ignore tool. Slight update. [img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9988278/scenebuildshit/phys.jpg[/img_thumb] I'd say this is an improvement.

  • I personally don't know how to make effects bigger. I just figured that because all of Norpo's effects came in different sizes that there was some way.

  • Since I failed with the armor I decided to mess around with Umodel & Texmod trying to make batarian skins since we only have two heads. [img]http://i.cubeupload.com/vSvRhI.jpg[/img] Thoughts about them? Edit: Also, if anyone want a specific looking Batarian I'll see what I can do.

  • Avatar of Kali
  • You need the facemap, too, I'm guessing you want me to tint the faces as well. I probably will make his clothes, Basing outfits off ingame ones is quicker than trying to think up color combinations that work. Speaking of clothing: [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9988278/asariworkers/dresses.jpg[/img] 1 more dress, then i've got this outfit finished. Got a couple other dress types to do, then i'm not sure what else Haxxer has in store for me to tint.

Also it's not mass effect stylish.
