i said i was gonna make a civilian model
it is (mostly) done
he doesn't have his bobblehead face, I wanted him to fit alongside the other classes. hopefully it works okay like this.
Just want to work out the physics model a bit then I'll get a download up.
Effing SWEET. Rebbacus, he looks freaking awesome. And neurotic. Those things are not mutually exclusive.
I am eagerly awaiting the chance to torment him.
I also ask, could you please throw up a link to your earlier models? Specifically the nude ones. I had to do a complete nuke of my hard drive and I don't have a copy anymore.
i set up a blogspot to store my model download links
if you can't find a particular model there, it's probably because an update broke it somewhere down the line and I haven't fixed it yet.
Once I figure out why my Gmod hates your models I'm going to pose pictures like crazy. I love this model so much! Great work!
HOLLA HOLLA GET $
I wish I knew how to help you. Have you tried renaming your addons folder and making a new one to see if something you downloaded is interfering?
Awesome. Thanks, Rebb. <3
I'll try that once I have the nerve for it. Thanks for the idea!
Rebb, you will be awesome even beyond death.
Now you need to make him naked.
If she does, then she has to make the Announcer nekkid, too. :U
And Rebb, why you made the civilan handsome?
Why would we want to see a chubby old man and a skinny old lady getting it on. That's just sick. It's like watching your parents screw.(because we like it)
That would be worth it just for trolling purposes.
lol double standards. How bout that fat man Heavy and old man Medic that everyone around here loves?
Medic isnt that old..and Heavy is cute.
you have made my day. he looks enough like the TFC civilian that there's a legit resemblance but he also looks like an actual character
now you gotta make him an umbrella
Woohoo! Thank you SO much! And yay! Civillian to torment! Most awesome!
Great, now I'm picturing him as her long-suffering trophy husband.
I blame Announcer's Day Off for that photo. :P
Someone should rig this over the Engineer so we could have a Hunted mod, or at very least, make it over a Payload cart and put it in a custom Hunted Map.
Very awesome work, OP.
That reminds me, are there any ports of hunted to TF2 worth playing?
Civilian's looking a bit too movie-star handsome and strong-jawed at the moment, almost Soldiery. Based on his TFC model and bobblehead he should be more wimpy-looking, maybe make the jowls droopier and the eyes sadder.
It's jaw fortress man, it's kind of hard to avoid.
>he should be more wimpy-looking, maybe make the jowls droopier and the eyes sadder.
Kind of understand this, while the face is done from scratch save the teeth and ears pulled off engineer, it's still pretty squared off. I tried to round it out while keeping the angularity of the faces common in all the classes. It's a hit or miss deal. /Everyone/ in TFC has got the sunken-eyed gaunt appearance, while in TF2, it's more brightened faces with JAWS of INDUSTRY/SCIENCE/WAR/SO ON. The most I could do was get the general idea down and hope people are open to my attempt at the transition. As for the eyes, on the models they're wide-open as default so eyelid flexes could be done... mostly correctly.
>a bit too movie-star handsome
BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER and that's a dumb excuse from me.
Now I don't know what more I can say other than my headcanon for this guy is that at one point he was a weatherman. Steamchat just had to give me the idea of the emblem being an umbrella, and everyone else just had to go "lol he looks like a weatherman, lol umbrella emblem, hey hunted guy, does the forecast call for chances of RAIN OF BLOOD?" but i haven't thought out why a weatherguy would have so many assassins after him.
>but i haven't thought out why a weatherguy would have so many assassins after him.
Maybe he gave the wrong weather prediction? v('<')v
"I am Civilian, and I'm here to ask you a question.
Is a man not entiled to the drops of his idling? No, says the man at TF Industries, it belongs to the people who actually play. No, says the man in Mann Co., it belongs to Saxon Hale. NO, says the player in the forums, they don't belong at all.
I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something different. I chose something classic. I chose...2FORT.
A map where the hurper would not be derped, where the cheater would not bound by petty mods, where the winfags would not overpower the weak.
And 2fort can be YOUR map, as well..."
In TFC and FF he's supposed to be a fat cat full of money with big political influence (Well, the political influence part works only for FF, though, it's not mentioned in TFC), I guess saving him would greatly improve research and help from governments, as well as killing him would stop the other team from getting access to all of this
i dig the new changes!
and yeah, his class emblem /has/ to be an umbrella. it's TFC nostalgia law.
He could still use more pudge in his body and expression/body language of perpetual woe, IMHO.
Ah, I was on the wiki and it didn't say anything about that. Fantastic to know.
I knew his only weapon was an umbrella, that's why I went along with it.
Alright, more bullcrap from me-
What, man, there's a like a spare tire right there. It's hidden a bit by the suit, but there's pudge there.
As far as expression and body language of perpetual fear and woe, this is something that is displayed through face posing and animations, which we're not going to get a lot of out of a T-pose.
Yes he was. He was short, and fugly like everyone else in TFC. Now he's... almost shorter than most everyone, and silly-looking, like everyone else. I'm not even going to get worried over how a number of people say he looks like soldier in a suit, hell, I was getting a lot of "scout's mom is scout in drag" (this was hilarious as well)
He was spur of the moment, and if I knew I was going to finish this guy in less than a month, I wouldn't have hidden his progress on tumblr to avoid teasing people, and gotten feedback. As it is, I'm not going back and changing anything.
Why people be hating on this, it fits perfectly with the style and everything
Nice job, Reb. Hope to see more from you, it's all I can say
>He was a short fugly politician unable to defend for himself
Keep in mind, the only real difference between Superman and Clark Kent is posture. How you animate and display the character gives them much more personality than just their looks alone. But yeah, could use some unexercised pudge to boot.
make him look fat will not make him look better, just diferent.
I always says, if you dont like something that you didn't payd anything, DO BETTER THEN.
Andrew Ryan? Is that you?
You're a pretty stubborn/shit poster, maybe you don't belong here either.
Hey Rebb, sorry if this is a request you get a lot, but is there anywhere where you've got your Nazi Medic models up? I've been scouring the internet and come up with nothing.
I do think that some of the changes people have suggested still make sense in spite of the defense, and I hope Rebb incorporates some of them into her model.
She said she had to fix a few things with it, the only hope we have of getting it now is finding someone with the files and begging.
It starts to get really awkward when there's different versions of models floating around in the community.
Now, I admit, first problem was hiding the progress from everyone and not looking for feedback.
What I did with announcer was tease with gmod poses, watched people's reactions, and make adjustments from common criticisms I saw. Once I got around to releasing her, I didn't have make any changes since most everyone was pleased. As for why I didn't interact with anyone regarding her... Well, it's obvious I can never say the right things, can I? :V
I am listening to you guys, really. I know it's a bit of a dick move to say I can't make any more changes to civilian. If it means anything, any future models will get similar treatment announcer got. Actually, since I'm planning on Miss Pauling next, I'll look around to get much more feedback since her appearance can be quite different from eye to eye.
I have to apply the newest skeleton and make some changes to the nazi medic model, so you're gonna have to wait a bit. There's still that concept scout I haven't even released that needs fixing, he's been sitting here for over a year.
Well I can't say I can complain about an improved model in the works. I shall do my best to be patient.
>Miss Pauling next
I am excite.
I can't wait to see this one! Although I can understand the eye to eye differences. I had any trouble finding references of her other than the (near full) body shot in the WAR comic when I cosplayed her.
She has two different appearences anyhow. She has a purple and green assented shirt when she aproaches the Demo in WAR! and there's the other one (green and red, I believe) in The Administrator.
I always thought the purple looked better due to it being the obvious mix of red and blue.
Shortly before the release of the nude models I saw something about an unmasked Spy model, I swore I saved the picture but I can't find it in my files, was that mod yours Reb? And if so could you post the picture again and a progress report, if there's any to report?
Now we can have some office lovin between miss pauling and the administrator!
I was going to throw in Pauling's purple and green outfits along with red and blue. Keeping with the team and administrator colours and all.
This spy? I'm not sure what I'm doing with him yet. I wanna fix the hair colour by his temples to be smoother, and tone down the stubble.
also have a concept scoot
i need to fix clipping issues.
Fuck, that spy looks like my dad.
Not a criticism at all, since I always imagined him that way under the mask. But that was still only in my head.
Reb, you're in my dreams, because when ever I dream of the spy, he looks just like that. Man he is hot as hell.
Marvelous, you should totally combine it with the Stylish Spy mod I did awhile back :P
Her expression isn't really sad, it's more expressionless. Plus, she seems fine with working with The Administrator, she even stated it, so she has little to be sad about.
Models have to be expressionless by default so face flexes work correctly. ahhhhh
We shall see. I keep forgetting about these models I have sitting away. :<
I do believe Pauling likes her job, probably has a small sense of twisted evil hiding there. I did find a logical way for her hair to be done up like it is, so now my brain isn't going "arglbarglfrgr" when I think about it. (Attempted with my own hair, needs practice, ahhhhgod)
Yeeeeaaah, that one. Though I could've sworn the picture was a RED Spy, I'm pretty sure that is the same model though. Looks really nice, good work Reb.
Keep up the good work! I think the civilian looks fine... after all, it makes sense that he would be revisioned for TF2.
I know you don't like being pestered about models, but will you be fixing the eyepatchless Demoman soon? As of right now, any misc item not bound to his head (the badges, in other words) just kinda hover around the crotch area, clipping through the model. Also, though not a big issue, his ref. position is laying down instead of upright.
By all means though, finish up your other stuff before worrying about that... these are all much cooler anyway. :P
Hope that works!
When you figure out the hair thing, could you share please? When I cosplayed as her I tried a TON of hairspray and twisting and such... nothing. Yeah... attached picture shows how well that worked. Next time I'm experimenting with hairnets.
Also, I didn't realize she had a logo on her arm.
Pauling doesn't have a logo, I threw that on there for filler. I don't know if I'll even have that on the model.
As for her hair, since it's all ONE GIANT BUN ABOUT TO EAT HER HEAD, and shapes itself in the most weirdest way to make it awkward to translate well to 3D, I went looking around for the next closest thing.
The entirety of the site is aimed to those with long hair. I dunno how well these things can be pulled off with shorter.
As far as I can tell, chances are, for cosplay, as long as hair is up in a bun of some kind, you're pretty much set.
Oh! That helps even more. I thought it was two buns or something idek.
Thanks for that link, that should help a LOT.
Also, I think the logo is nifty, maybe have it as an addable armband if that's even possible.
I kinda want to paint it on the front of my clipboard now. It's a pen and a squiggle line, right?
why hello there, Clark Gable!
sniper wearing just his vest, no shirt, hang on, did you mention something about shirtless models in an older thread?
Oh god, that would be awsome. And vice versa, vestless Sniper with just his shirt?
Also, I am loving that maskless Spy, and Miss Pauling is adorable.
at least one of those commas was supposed to be a full stop :V
brb working out animation export
Ooh, nice! Is that for a custom taunt?
"But it's the pelvic thrust...that really drives you insaya-yay-yain!"
This with the nude models and I will die laughing.
I'll die laughing if it's for the kill taunt he does with the Ubersaw. Death by pelvic thrust LOL
....We need this.
Give him a saxophone and white sunglasses then the awesome level of this animation would skyrocket!
Yar. The glasses shall be weighted to a bone for animation as well.
then i bring this back up again http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4wUqHR6tVps
and now for engiebee eggs.
Loving dem Engy-eggs, Reb. Can't wait to see the WIP shots of Ms. Pauling.
Speaking of WIP, how's maskless Spy going?
Haven't worked on him. Whoops. That mass of hair on his head loves to clip through hats.
Flailing around aimlessly while i try to figure out what I'm going to do. ahhhhhhh
I am working on Pauling though. It'll still be a while. It helps I bring what I have done in-game to see more clearly how I'm majestically crapping things up. Proportion goof-ups need to be addressed and I could see her having more hair on her head. As for the face, it's gonna be a tug-and-pinch deal until I can settle on a result.
(yeah, it's a bit "yikes" at the moment)
...and she's gonna be smaller than a scoutma. i was wondering "why did i make her so small" then i remembered she's really small compared to demo in the comic. hurp.
Very nice, just a suggestion, add some curves to her hips, because in the pic to the left she has some, *ahem*, "curvy" hips.
She's actually looking pretty cool at the moment.
If I hadn't known any better, I'd say Pauling's face looks similar to Chell from Portal but TF2-fied.
Say, that's a cool shot. I have no idea what her hair is supposed to do by any of the drawings, so I can't even imagine trying to figure that out properly. The space between the lenses in her glasses looks a bit wide at this stage, that's the only thing that really stands out to me.
I'd like to see some more screenshots and wip shots of Pauling.
My goodness... Gordan freeman!
kleiner's sister aside, i'm glad to see that pauling is coming together, i can't wait until she's finished
I always got the impression that Pauling was shorter and had a more petite build than that.
The head/hair/hips/tits need to be scaled up a bit more. Still, great job!
so i herp'd and durp'd and I made a concept scout download!
Trying it out in-game. Eyes seem to be acting a little odd though. He seems to like to look to the left a lot.
None of the team fortress 2 models have useable eyelids.
They're like lizards.
inb4 somebody draws Lizard Fortress 2/Engibee war
What you up to Rebb
Yeah, sorry about the eyelids, eyes flexes become broken when the model is decompiled.
I've been busy helping someone out. Sorry for having no updates.
Ah yes, the improvising of the female scout. Carry on.
my goodness medic why did you take a bath in vaseline
(no phong mask hurp)
i has good idea
make a saxton hale model
then a naked saxton hale model
That's right,NO CHEFS HERE
Topless models. SO looking forward to them.
if you're working with the fem scoot, can we get a nude of her too?
I was working on femscoot because Max wanted a few changes on the model. I'm not modding girlscout nude unless Ayesdyef comes up to me and is all "yo put some naked tittays on dat ho"
Have another medic.
Looking forward to all this! I suppose no progress yet on pauling?
Whoops, no progress on Pauling. My bad.
also i think this is Pauling's hair http://homotography.blogspot.com/2011/01/loewe-ss11-by-mert-marcus.html but i wish to know how it's pulled off. someone halp :(
