Riddick skin for S-Low'd Vin Diesel Model

I requested this skin a while ago, but after nobody did it, I decided to stop being lazy and do it myself.

:siren: NOTE: This is an early version, so there are still a lot of things I want to fix or change before releasing it. :siren:




Ingame screenshots:

To do:
Fix texture alignment
Make various things look less “painted-on” (wrist tape, arm holes on his shirt, etc) and add details
Figure out how to make that holster thing on his back invisible (apparently $translucent doesn’t work with phong)
Create alternate versions - one without goggles, and one wearing the goggles, but not covering his eyes (like in this picture.)
Fix goggle lenses

As you can see in the screenshots, the lenses look messed up where his eyes would normally be. That’s because I don’t know how to edit the model, so the goggles are just part of the texture. You can still see where the face texture meets his eyes, and there are 2 solutions to this. I could ask someone else to edit the model since I can’t, or make the lenses completely black (without phong) so you can’t see the seam. Alternatively, I could leave it how it is now, and make it so you have to edit it in screenshots.

Post any comments or ideas you have on how I can improve the model.

EDIT: and of course, as soon as I post this, I notice the typo in the thread title. Can a mod change that D to an S?


Woah, nice work!

Whoa thats one nice reskin, the outfit matchs almost perfectly.

It’s nice, but shit model the goggles on not just texture them on.

Did you read my original post? I can’t edit the model.

Ehhh. Fine but atleast try to use normal maps to make it not so painted looking.

And yes I did read the OP.

It’s on my to-do list.

So you can’t just model some goggles then hack them on his face?

Pretty good for a skin.

The main problem comes from compiling, which I’ve never been able to get to work. I guess I could try editing it, and then asking someone else to compile it for me. I don’t know how to do UV mapping or anything like that though.

you might want to put some more effort into this. Ridick doesnt have brown little small leather things glued on his arm. try and make it 3D http://conventionfans.today.com/files/2009/05/riddick.jpg also the goggles are really not the same imo.

Its a good start, just got to work your ass on it, than alot of people will be wanting this.
Good luck in your futur stuff

why not just port the riddick model from the game?

Last i heard they couldnt be exported. thou if you get the texture couldnt you just copy the skin and face details from it

I’ve never been able to get 3D Ripper DX to work. I’ve tried literally everything I could possibly do, so I’m convinced it just doesn’t work with Dark Athena.

the goggles look so bad that you might just want to scrap them altogether

sorry man, i’m really just being honest

Urr, then use it on EFBB.

I don’t have the original version, just the remake that came with Dark Athena.
