    Telvin shakes his head sadly as Luse runs by with a bar of soap, seemingly on his way to the "exercise room"

    Anyway. Hello from one more of the loonies. Stick around for a while. Have some Grog. And don't feed the animals.

    hmm im not sure ive been modelin various things for many a half-life mod and im working with an hl2 mod team right now so... either a lightwave tutorials topic, or possibly a thread where people can come and ask for models to be made. Or if you think of a topic within 3d modelling that you would like to see addressed then let me know.

    Very nice! that dragon is just awesome.. if you ever need an extra pair of hands to help then im just a PM away. Im head modeller there and since our mod is based in the world of hl2 we dont need any humanoid models so im concentrating on weapons atm. I have worked for 2 mods and one defunct retail game, Gohans Hidden Powers- HL1 mod, Extermination-HL2 mod and Legacy 3d space sim for pc.

    hm... i'm currently not looking for members but once i get my engine over to rendering the models (i'm currently on the terrain part of the engine and the script language inclusion) i could need somebody with better skills than me.

    say... what's your moddb name if you are there too? (mine is the same as here)

    well i think you should. i'm a hard-coder and not a modeller thus i should be worse than somebody doing models in the first place. also the dragon is a sub-division mesh thus it looks kinda high-poly but in fact the mesh sceleton is damn low-poly... [​IMG]

    have a look at this once. i would like to here the opinion of somebody knowing about animations. i just quickly slammed this together (do not look at the picture. i tried a first skinning but it went horrible [​IMG]).

    well they look great so far but one thing on the shoot_reload, once the bolt is released you could speed up the drawing back of the bow wire (unless you like it like that) but thats just my opinion [​IMG] apart from that "its all gravy" as they say!

    that the bow is slowly moving back has it's sense. the key principle of the game is not using fire-power to achieve your goals but using your brains. that's why the small number of available 'weapons' (let's call them devices for the moment) are tweaked in a way you can't use them just like this. in this case you can put asleep a guard with one tranquilizer dart but you can't fire them quickly so you have to think if you want to use it if there is more than one or if you wanna try something else to get passed them.

    and what's "it's all gravy"? never heard of that expression.

    ahh i see now it makes much more sense I see your point and having that pace is a good idea for a stealthy game. the phrase "its all gravy" means "everythings great!"

    don't make me go redish... the crossbow still seems a bit strange and the animation sequence of the dragon breaks if you overshoot the leg... and lot-a-things are missing... he has no ears and no tongue... although teeth he has [​IMG]
