unnamed plasma gun

Postby Unnamed » 07 Feb 2014 20:33

I made some new player animations for my plasma weapon model.
plasma_anim.zip
still no animations for the hud-hands

I soved the problems I had by using a specific combination of iqm exporter and blender version. Well, I don't know how to make blender less user-friendly.
But there is a seperate model for the hud-hands using the md5 format. Great, I have also to export it to md5 now :(

Here is the link for the weapon model:

Could you explain a bit better what issues you had with iqm and md5? Why do you need md5 at all? It should be possible to use iqm for everything, that there are still md5 models in Red Eclipse is just a left over from previous times.

For some reason the HUD hands are using MD5. I have no idea why. They can be converted to IQM if possible, I'm not concerned about the format so long as it works.

I really hope you can work it out. You did an awesome job on the plasma gun and a new animation set for hands and reloading would finish your work.

Great work on this model.
I'll try to help with reload if I ever get time and motivation

Could you apply an anti-aliasing filter to that please? Looks fine otherwise :)
Edit: oops, its probably not aliasing actually... the edges still look grainy though, ill try to find what it is.
Alright, its probably that the shadow is too small and fades out too quickly compared to other models, together with that your edges have more contrast and less blur than the other icons... I hope its not too hard to fix, a bit of blurring along the edges might already do the job...

Yes, looks much better already, even though you probably just reduced the shadow
It still has some ragged edges, but not enough for me to mind. :P

I increased blur.

It took a half hour, but now the edges should be smooth and not ragged.
