Update (29 Sept, 2011)
I think we can label this experiment a success
! Thanks largely to SixShotOverdrives work on new mesh pieces for his base playable-Zealot mesh, we have been able to piece together 11 complete armor sets for a Zealot chracter! All hail mesh-master SixShot!
Ive placed the complete wardrobe into a simple new-class character which Ive called the Spiritist (the backstory, based heavily on Jupiahs excellent idea for it, is that the Spiritists are a race that was corrupted by the ember to transform them into the Zealots). you can download the Spiritist from RGF.
Pls remember right now the Spiritist is just a showcase for the Zealots new wardrobe. She has no class-specific skills, only the shared passive skills. And the wardrobe textures are NOT final (a lot of them are still my crappy work) since I felt it was more important to get the wardrobe-able Zealot out quickly. Arkham has already started re-working some of the textures and Im going to try re-texturing as well (time permitting), but Im sure theres a lot of other very capable artists in the community and Im still hoping some of them will do some of the re-texturing as well
I really hope we all have fun with this baby and please fee free to take the Spiritist mod and use it as a base for your own class-mods!Original-original Post, Sept. 17, 2011
I decided to move this topic out from its previous thread
onto its own.
In this project I am trying to make a complete wardrobe for SixShotOverdrives Zealot mesh. Historically, SixShot made this mesh to fix the Zealots skeleton to work with the existing animations of the regular TL classes. It works wonderfully in that regard, but it was not yet wardrobe-able.
I cannot thank SixShot enough for making additional mesh-pieces for the Zealot, which Im now mashing-up to produce the armor-set meshes. Im naming the sets the same as the 12 Vanquisher sets, only so that they can work with the units/items already existing in the game.Anyone is welcome to take these wardrobe sets and make textures for them!
Im only able to push out 1 or 2 of these new armor-sets a week due to time constraints
and thats without any texturing. So I thought itd be better to just make the sets available immediately for other artists to texture and share with the community more quickly
So below are the sets Ive been able to make so far. Theyve been tested in Dushos mesh viewer
tool but not yet in-game.1. Zealot Valkyrie Set2. Zealot Assassin Set3. Zealot Spiked Set4. Zealot Plate Set5. Zealot Heavy Plate Set6. Zealot Chain Set7. Zealot Buckled Set8. Zealot Shadow Set9. Zealot Leather Set10. Zealot Heavy Leather Set11. Zealot Gunslinger SetEDIT (25 SEP 2011)
Okidokey, thats all the armor sets for the Zealot
I am now going to try to get all of these to work properly with the games wardrobing system, so that shell equip all armors like a regular character. Check back peeps!
