<div class="IPBDescription">NURF vortex kharaa style</div>Plans on doing bile, para and a new spike as well, may then touch up the OC who knows.

The models needs compiling, the bacterium vains have been raised out of the rocket.

As you can see i managed to sort of match my crappy spray skin guide, the rocket carapace is raised in apropriate area's, if i can get it exsported from maya 7.0 then compiled, at least the low poly version, it will be game ready, then prahaps i can move on to the bile bomb

    It would require pretty big changes compared to oryginals to notice it, but on the other hand, a bit different shape and skin (most important I think) would also do the talking.

    aye its going to have a skin and shape to it that looks like it shoudl spiral thur the air i dont know if the current model sprials but the current model is nothing but a ice cream like shape

    OK the skin is done, now i have a issue with fixing up seams on the skin as you will see there are sevral that are pritty bad they are rather bold and stand out a lot

    <a href="http://img244.imageshack.us/my.php?image=messing2ga6.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img244.imageshack.us/img244/9955/messing2ga6.th.jpg" border="0" alt="IPB Image" /></a>

    ill use a few filters tho

    should look similar to this

    on the object so far we look a little like this

    <a href="http://img243.imageshack.us/my.php?image=rawsdb9.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://img243.imageshack.us/img243/504/rawsdb9.th.jpg" border="0" alt="IPB Image" /></a>

    ill try and do one more day or two on it then i am just going to have tpo release it the final day or two will be smoothing and trying to match up seams, if any one knows of a good or easy way to do this i was thinking the clone / stamp tool maybe or lassoing one seams and drag it over them bluring and so on to make a smooth transition from seam to seam

    i will require someone else to compile it Qc file and on as i have read 4 diff sets of instructions and systemoaticly tryed every possable out come to exsport this thing and compile the qc

    so i would like to requires some one show me how to do this cos with the tools i have so far its not working

    if you need the errors or programs i am useing or the exsackt steps i am takeing and or have tryed so far

    but well i wanna get started on the bile bomb

    note this is what the current acid rocket looks like

  • NEX9NEX9 Join Date: 2005-03-08 Member: 44299Members
    well its finished as such i just cant seam to exsport it out of my maya 7.0 and compile it i dotn know if the issue is with my maya smd exsporter plugin, a option i havent checked, something critical i havent done to the model, the QC is skrewed i don't know how to write, or the smd compiler has a issue

    i can uncompile a modle, i can import it into maya 7.0 perfectly fine, if i imediantly exsport it again, no matter what options i cheak, it wont recomiple, if i reimport it back into maya tehre is nothing there but the bone and a surface the same shape as the bone

    i am gathering theres a issue with the exsporter or a option i havent checked but i systematicly went thru and cheaked uncheaked each box and multiple boxes, yes about 75 dif combonations exsported what was simple stock imports with no changes and still couldnt reopen them

    prahaps someone else would with maya and a working exsporter would exsport and compile it, and or prahaps someone else has exsperianced same said issue and knows how to fix it and would be kind enough to run me thru how to fix it please

    cheers suicidal, but i am acctuly useing 2.5 as i have maya 7.0 even tho 2.5 i belive was recomended for and with the 7.0 PA personal learning edition, that could be the issue there, aparently i can also make source models with break and pychic layers and all sorts who knows i just model wit it
  • ShirohShiroh Join Date: 2003-01-27 Member: 12852Members
    maybe you can try import the .ma from Milkshape then export it as a .smd?

    dunno if the smd'll keep the texture and bones and stuffs in this way though :/
