Okay this is just an idea I've been going through my head so I'll spit it out. Map objects can really make a new NS map look nicer... and let's face it... there aren't that many nice map objects free for the public to use in their maps. What is there... that one chair that came with NS? That's fine and dandy but perhaps a few of us modellers could join together and pump out a set of things that mappers could make use of. This isn't player models or weapon models... it's more of map objects, like chairs, cieling cameras, coffee makers, robotic arms. Things that mappers can use to spruce up their levels. The other part of this idea is in the mappers forum, where mappers can suggest things that they would appreciate to be made.
So if your a modeller wanting some practice or just a modeller who wants to help out those mappers feel free to offer your help here. This idea will only go forward if I get at least a few people who volunteer. Map objects are often quick and easy little things which don't need a ton of animations or anything. I will be working alongside any team made using my own modelling skills... and will try to keep things organized. Skinners may also be welcomed as often modellers don't want to bother or don't have the skills to properly skin their work. This will be very open ended so modellers can model what they want to from ideas posted. This won't be about deadlines or forcement to model something you don't feel like doing. The only thing I will try to emphasize is I don't want to see map objects or anything converted from other games/mods. I want modellers to volunteer not converters. No offense to any converters.... I'd just rather see original content than stuff a mapper can easily attain at their own effort.
Modellers unite!... okay that sounded lame.. but you get the idea
If you have a suggestion for a map object stop by the mappers forum... there should be a separate thread in there which I made for you to post those suggestions.
