Modeling/texturing done. Now to start making the rig.

Sorry it has shitty artifacts through the image, bayimg likes to re compress any images that are uploaded and turn them to shit.

heheh

Here's a quick update of the gun, managed to get the low poly and uv's done quickly.. so I'll start on the texture now.
This pic shows the "high" poly (I put it in quotation marks, because normally I put a lot more work into my high poly models, but I consider this weapon to be rarely used, everyone should use vwep and I'll have all nice guns made up! )

Anyway you can see how it bakes down onto the low poly. So if anyone thinks I use nvidia photoshop filter rubbish.. you're VERY mistaken. I actually don't even have that thing installed.

So as you can see, this is why things take time.
Hopefully it'll pay off!

..and before anyone realises wtf is going on... I'll sneak in the final with texture.
btw, this is a REALLY bad gun design, I hate it. It's fairly faithful though, which is what the goal is

I don't really understand any of that tech-talk, but damn, those pictures looking fucking amazing!

So does low poly mean md3? And what will happen to the high poly count models?

You could say that the low poly is the md3, it's the model that you rig and export with animations and all. The high poly is just used for baking a normal map for the low poly model, and the normal map is just a 2d texture that tells how the light should bounce of the model, makes everything look more 3dish without using more polygons.

And great work with the models Electro!

Guran, oh yeah I know that

Might not have been clear enough what I meant, but I was trying to ask if the low poly version would be md3? Normally in qw terms, low-poly is mdl and high poly is md3

And then just for kicks I wanted to know what would happen to the source files, if we need an update in the future or something.

Cheers guys.

Yep they were always thigh pads. I know that if I had thigh pads I'd go into battle thighs first.

This model won't work as an mdl, at all. It's too high poly and mdl will just cry. It's that simple.
Md3 is going to cry as well, but that's all that ezquake will be able to do (if md3 even works). It'll also have to be a single set of baked in animations.

FTE is where the real magic will happen. Full skeletal animation with blending between animations and allowing for running/firing at the same time etc.... and eventually ragdoll

Guran: yep that pretty much covers it, normalmaps RGB corresponds with XYZ direction. Except rather than with oldschool models how normals are just done per-vertex. Normalmaps can set XYZ on a per-pixel level. Light doesn't bounce off models (that'd be radiosity! - oh I wish), they just light pixels more based on a small piece of math. You know that already though just clearing it up for anyone else who's getting even more confused.

While it's in early stages? That's what someone did for ezQuake for the md3 stuff. As a result it ended up with an old broken version of FTE's md3 support. So even that will need fixing before my stuff will work.
