  • Collecting every single one to summon an SNPC Dragon(forgot his name, its been so long...) that grants a wish like this; /kill [name of player] /give [name of weapon/item] /adopt [get a mini dragon(watshisname) as battle companion] ect,ect,ect. That would rock :O

  • [QUOTE=necroblade;14838479]well all i have to say is that i (not that this matter's) HATE DRAGONBALL Z!!!!!!!!!!!! anyway back to the tremors![/QUOTE] I'm sorry, but how old are you, do you know what your name means, why do you insist on typing like an 8 year old on drugs, and I suggest you don't yell that, because no one cares. Sorry, I don't mean to flame, and I think those dragon balls look pretty epic. Be nice for just a model even... Especially with that awesome glowy texture, and the greatness they exude (even though, as Necroblade said, I'm not a huge fan of the movie, though I don't dislike it enough to follow this with twenty exclamation points). What would be really neat would be if they gave off light, like a light entity...
  • Oh you bet, I've been thinking about how they'd work. The Smokiness in the center that you see is a complex lens flare actually, easily turned into a sprite I should think. In the picture they're glowing like they do when in proximity to other Dragonballs, but when apart they're much dimmer, so the sprite would change from a dimmer one to the current one when close to others and vice versa. The tricky thing though would be the stars. In the film they're not static, they just float along the circumference like something in a snow-globe. The closest thing I can think of is giving the stars a bone in the center which will be part of a two-bone ragdoll. The stars can be free to go the full 180 degrees and be given a weight value of 0 so that they don't automatically try sinking towards the floor. The problem with that might be the collision model, but I've heard in some cases that intersecting collision models sometimes work...I dunno about collision models INSIDE collision models though... EDIT: As to DBZ, I like it obviously. The movie I thought could have and SHOULD have been infinitely better. I'll even go as far as to say the current direction the film took might have worked if it was plenty longer and shown some love. I don't personally mind the actors, I think they were fine, but they got a shitty script with shitty dialogue and were directed by a guy for who all I know only woke up every few minutes to remember where he was and then say "Good job, cut, print, next scene...Zzzzzz..."

  • couldn't you animate them just moving around the globe? would work and you could just have it constantly moving.. where as with the bone method if no one is holding it, it wouldn't move i no nothing about drangon ball so i don't no the movement or anything just going by what your saying.

  • But if you use the Dragonballs too much the the Dragon will kill you XD Yes I did watch the series when I was a kid. Looking back on it now it was quite cheesy, and some of the action scenes were overdone, and the story was... well, it was... ummm... Caught between an acid trip and a really long fight scene.... But most of the action was awesome, and that was what kept me sucked in. [b]EDIT:[/b] Oh yeah and Necroblade your That's what she said joke sucked.

  • [QUOTE=Fear57;14883718]Are any of these finished? D:[/QUOTE] Graboid is, and I think the Shrieker might be, though don't quote me on that un'.
  • Mainly I'm waiting for Stratos to show up. I still have to UVW the Grablet, and rig it, but otherwise there's not much else to do. I'd need a texture to start ragdolling the AB. I guess I could start animating soon, or focus on my other project.

That is at least a decent post right there. If you could post like that instead of "HeY thuR!!11 CuN Y0o Make a Grab monstar 4 ME right N0W??! L0l I luv ya" It's much easier on the eyes.

  • Hey J-Dude, if you're going to model a Barret M-82 (If that's what Burt Gummer used in the movie, that is), you can instead just find an M-82 skin or model on FPSB. But you'd have to give credit.

Things including but not limited to Pictures and other various info. ;) Regardless, I can wait, just knowing that sometime in the near(?) future imma have some big ass monsters the shoot at. XD

  • Oh, I remember my good ol' day of MMOs, to bad my account got deleted before I could eBay it. Now I can't image how I could play they so much...Good luck on the models though I would worry about updates as long as you don't disapear for a month without telling anyone. EDIT SHIT! I've been reskining for hours! How did I end up here and have so little finished!
  • Hey J-Dude, I absolutely can't wait for you to finish good job, I also have read your comic twisting the valve, very well done. I have my own machinima inspired by them "1337 Wars". Like I said before good work! I love how you mixed together my favorite machinima! Hope you finish strong with the highly anticipated Tremors pack!

I have confidance in your work, and from the screen shots I've seen so far and its all looking good. Also, are you going to be coding the "lua AI" or are you going to have someone else do it? Its one O' them "just wondering" things.
