The Homestuck Playset is a project that was initiated some time last year when someone in the modeling forum requested models of characters and props from the webcomic Homestuck by Andrew Hussie. I love making models of characters and the ones from Homestuck seemed like they’d be especially fun, so I chose to honour the request and it turned into something much larger. I became so enthused that I learned how to use lua and ended up making a whole bunch of player models, entities, weapons and gameplay elements that me and the project’s followers have been selfishly enjoying by ourselves for almost an entire year! It’s time to get things moving again and get the add-on into the hands of the people who will enjoy it the most; the people who love Homestuck!

All of the characters have custom animations that I made from scratch and are capable of doing all the fun stuff that the regular player models do (swimming, sitting, lying in pods, etc.) Playable characters include the 4 original kids, the alpha kids, 12 original trolls, 2 pre-scratch trolls (Meenah & Aranea) and the 4 members of the midnight crew!
Weapons and Clothes:
There’s at least one weapon for every character that has one in the comic and loads of different outfits and accessories that everyone can wear.
Along the course of this project’s ongoing design, a few different gameplay features were introduced to make the player models more fun to use in the context of co-operative play and roleplaying. There are all kinds of things like these, but the ones shown below are, in my opinion, the most interesting and the most fun.
Revival with a kiss: When a player is incapacitated, they have the choice to wait for a friend to come and revive them or to respawn normally. Injured players are easy to find, because glowing heart glyphs appear above their bodies that can be seen through walls, much like the briefcase in Team Fortress. This proved to be a lot of fun in co-operative play, because it gives players more of a chance to work together to get through levels without having to restart. I think you’ll really like it.
Hugs: Hugs make everything better. This is an irrevocable fact that has proven undeniable. They basically work just like the high-fives in Team Fortress, whereby one player holds their arms out and the other presses USE on them to complete the hug. It’s fun!
Features in Summary:
• Every Kid/Troll is included, both as a playermodel and a ragdoll
