There is a challenge to the theory of time, called The truth about time.

Welcome to the internet.
From GmT+12:00 to GmT-12:00, Plus the 24 hr day...
... Meaning there is technically 48hrs in any one day of the calender.

Caveats: GmT is sometimes called UTC.

Something few people know.
Let alone can understand.

Welcome to the internet.

Oh damn! I forgot the world is still flat... :P

Shhhh.... Be wery, wery quiet.
....I'm Hunting Paraphilic Disorders. :P

Report abuse Enabling forums on personal profiles.

How to enable forums on personal profiles, anyone know?

As the images section is a bit long and tedious and some times I dont get the ability to reply to everyone. :)
Because I dont get notified.

So If I dont reply I am sorry.
But it seems to be a flaw of ModDB, :(

I have babbled about forums for a long time so things get sectioned well and you get intel on comment. :)
It really helps a developer, and not this images section spam which we are used too. :)

What is done with the praetorian mod forums, is something I would like to do with my own profile and as a retard developer, it would make all the mods I develop with easier model development wise. :)

This type of catalog of assets, where notification of idea in the thread would make life so much easier for developers of models and some other assets. :)

So if you think I ignored you in the past I apologize, as development tracking and the amount of media I have thrown though is not the easiest to track.

Report abuse Summary of the gigantic long list....

The blogged out notepad journal was roughly how it started with lots of Max 6 work and trials and failures.

Remembering that there is no easy fix until you get to understand how things go together. and that always takes time. No matter how you approach it.

For a long time even going through Max 7, I couldn't burn back into the game...

So hex work was all I could do with some Graphical work.

Then I started up Max 8 on another machine and it could burn, I also started using Photoshop for DDS work and that allowed me to get load screens.

FFE came along and I started bumbling around in it with lots of grumbling people about how things worked.

I figured out how to burn through multiple versions of DOW tools, and that made life even easier.

The more FFE exploration and With the introduction of DXTBMP, textures got so easy it was unbelievable.

Gimp came into play again to give me translucent textures and actually save true 32bit tga's.

In the first weeks you feel lost and confused and no one seem to be able to give you knowledge.
It is the usual feeling as you pick up the procedure and how to work in it.....

So be patient and hang and you can pick it all up also. :)

Week 16, Hmmmm....
More time into the turrets/LP.
Time to consider outsourcing some of my meshes.
Like the nids to the nid modders.
It would allow me to gain more knowledge and different perspectives on modding since I have hit a barrier. It might also make the models available to the apocalypse mod faster.
with over 200 models in concept combined with a couple of hundred more mentioned in scribbling I has corresponded and my inability to be able to sgm stage it might be a way to be assured they are able to be used by the apocalypse mod.
I am quite sure that if I keep hitting that sgm barrier that the dawn of coalescence team and the apocalypse team couldn't keep up with the number of models I have spat out or will spit out in future. Also specialist skills in race based application of models would make them more unique.
If you have a list of modders and what races they like to mod. I am sure I could communicate with them and get the "concepts" models I have done game ready faster.
Whats your thoughts?

Or at least that would be how I would diversify my 40k army with different miniatures, :)

Wrack ratling attempted.
I was thinking the formation could be an arc with the haemonculi leader as the point of origin.
Anyway there is a blurb in the zip i sent.

Wrack human could be the tortured slave squaded up, with the haemonculi as the point of origin in an arc formation again. On leashes.

Grotesque Genestealer. Mesh up. :p
Um in case you didn't know, short blurb in zip. :P
it would be good if an etheral leash would go between the stealer harness and the hamonculi hand. But we will see. :)
I am not sure if the stealer skin needs recolouring.

Grotesque ogryn is what I tried for,
Did I succeed, I dont know, but I tried to make it look overly dangerous and be able to scare the mortal alien scum into doing what you wanted them to do, either run or die. :p Blurb in zip. :)

Grotesque ork, I think.
There is a blurb in the zip as usual in case you like to read engrish. :p
double line formation that has the haemonculi at the rear of the formation.
Blurb in zip says more so you dont have to read so much here. :p

Like the pdf om the forum.
Well there is my rendition of one.
I am not over the moon about it, but with a good tex'ing it would serve the marines well.
How to get it into the game you ask?
Well thats easy, a second buildable machine cult. Taking all of the landraiders out of the current machine cult and giving it a terminator crux on the top of the machine cult. To symbolize 1st company vehicles.
Example tex provided to be able to be imported into the mesh. Or alternately it could be renamed and used with the old machine cult, the hexed into the machAdvcult.

Should I be sending the malenthrope and the Tervigon to the Nids mod, to see if it stimulates them into doing more models?
Also should I send the updated listening posts and meiotic spores to them and discussing with them the usage of aforementioned units.
Also they might be able to give me more feedback on my inabilities.
Or at the least make better versions of what I tried to do as they are the original creators. :)

I found the smart way to resize in skin by using the bip01 then resizing the bone and everything else scales.

As that is why some weapons are bone converted.

I seem to have hit a wall with not being able to burn back into sgm for DOW and it is rather demoralizing with the PC I am going to purchase, needing to be delayed for a few weeks as the person I care for needing larger amounts of money to survive. :(
I am not giving up though. :p

# Chaos Daemons

In the insanity of doing all listening posts up astronomically.
I had a sane thought about the daemons LP.
About using the lesser daemon statues as listening posts.
#1 Khorne LP. Bones included.
Used for the 1st tier of LP as a melee LP.
With the slash attack being used fro defense of the LP.
#2 Nurgle LP. Bones included.
with plague spray used as a defense from sword of the Plague bearer. Possibly along the ground to the target or through the air to the target?
#3 Slaneesh LP. Bones included.
using some magics of slaneesh for the defensive capacity of the LP.
with the animated pose I have her in for firing a pink lash could come out of her stomach area but slightly forward as it looks to me like she is building up energy in that location with her pose.
#4 Tzeentch LP, Bones included.
Using the fireballs that tzeentch has as magics coming out of the mouths of the horror.
Just some things a bit livelier then a burning spore chimney?

Alternately these could be buildings that spawn units with and the building has some defensive capacity?

Or the Greater daemon statues being used as spawn points for the daemon alignments.

Minion daemons
Lesser daemons
fast attack daemons
Mount daemons
Mounted daemons
Greater daemons

blood skulls?
There is a great image at the imperial palace where a winged skull is chasing down a cherub trying to get some object during the end of the horus heresy.
I found it in Codex Imperialis, but it is a bat with a skull head chasing down a cherub with a skull.

Blue horrors?
You have the mesh unanimated, it is the minions of tzeentch that are much smaller then the pink horrors or commonly known as horrors these days.
It would be about the quarter the size of a pink horror/horror.
It is a minion horror that was used in many editions and phased out in 4th I believe.
small as a nurgling hence the minion daemon status.
All melee. no magic casting. but i left the casting in there because it looks like a melee attack. :)
Icons provided
Lua resize?

Harpies?
They seems to obviously fit with slaneesh to me, as they are the only one that I can think of as having naked winged freaks that are daemons. They are used in the fantasy codex/army book and fit well into 40k.

daemon Plague rats?
They would be the fast attack choice for the nurgle. I cant remember where it comes from, but I remember seeing it several times through out the years and in different renditions. They are roughly the size of a hound, and as fast as them if some what chubbier.

Pleasurelings are small female shaped minions that are a babies size but the shape of a real adult woman. with a tail similar to the ones i sent in on the models.
I was just thinking i could rip and resize virtual valerie. :p

I am sending through a nurgling I have been working on for a while. It looks rough but it can handle the animation set of the grotz.
my first multi boned skin I got to work successfully, I can understand if you think its bad, as I dont think much of it. :p
but I had to share after a week of mainly turrets

# Dark Eldar

Turrets/Listening posts:
Tier 8? :p
Or would it be that because they are raiders they only get a small selection of upgrades as they raent interested in much else then getting prey for commoraugh.

Dark Eldar Titan? even if some what uncanny for the dark eldar as a raiding force. :)

I can generate a lot of vehicles. from VDR. finding more that have been generated in a similar way online.

One thing that I couldnt generate was troops. Until I read further into the Haemonculus.

It seems that every Haemonculus seems to have its favored prey for grotesques. So while taking a break from turrets to let the bleeding stop.
I mewled over the idea of multiple types of grotesques. One for each of the race types was my first inclination.
in precedence.
ratling
squat
termagants
eldar
tau
human
sisters
marines
ork
genestealers
ogryn
All with differing degrees of toughness.
no weapons because they are untrustworthy xenos. But the capacity for melee combat unarmed. :p

but there was an issue as more then one haemonculus would need to be deployed to have his grotesques under control and monitor their worthiness. This could be bypassed using multiple weaker haemonculus as training, under the study of the master haemonculus. Testing out their grotesques to gain the favor of the haemonculi ancient. Like inquisitors do under an inquisitor lord.
Having each of the grotesques squads upgradable with a haemonculus.

Another idea was to break them down into grotesques and wracks as listed in the 5th ed codex.
units,
--Wracks--
ratling
squat
termagants
eldar
tau
human
sisters
--Grotesques--
marines
ork
genestealers
ogryn

Hive mind issues can be gotten past with psycho-surgery. :p Rogue trader knowledge comes in handy. :p

Nids as they are known now seems insane to be using as wracks, but I am assured that there would be insane enough Haemonculi to go to such extremes to impress ancient haemonculi.
I am even sure there would be Haemonculi that would be insane enough to experiment on patriachs/broodlords.

My further dark eldar mumbling are based around mounts for the warriors. warp mounts? mutated warp beasts.
Like the dark elves use cold ones.
I have no particular mount design in mind. Other then either re-tex'd horses from the steel legion making it look more like a warp beast.
or some type of ether mount the shape of a cold one.

Harlequins yes......
It is apparent from the 5th ed dark eldar that these cherished wonders need to be included in the dark eldar as well as the eldar. At the moment I believe it is just code that needs to include the soulstorm harlequins.
Obviously I would be rambling on about using them like the eldar do in soulstorm legions, but I have rambled on about that enough before today. :p
Harlequin portal has been provided already to you. and I can send it again if necessary.
ramble, ramble, ramble, used as a superstructure like it was intended for the eldar so they are a mid to late game addition to the Eldanesh armies. :)

# Textures

Yep the bmp trick seemed to work by converting the dds dxt3 extracted tga into a bmp then back into a tga. Through Photoshop.
File export *,sgm was giving me trouble and wouldn't export. After doing the above trick it exported. still no WHM Model exporter yet. Damn it. :(

# Turrets

LoL, LoL, LoL... I am being lazy with these turrets and trying to directly merge the extra guns into the animations. :P Just like you can get away with characters. :p
But to my surprise it is loading in extra bones for the either vert/horiz bone. LoL. POS Max.
Do you know of a way to load in objects that are skinned and have the bone stay separate to the merge or not be merged?
I started off feeling very dumb and acting dumb and attaching the gunz to the horiz bone. To my surprise in certain turret animations they dont use the horiz bone but the vert bone. :p
Okay so I tried the vert bone, but not every turret has a vert bone and the eldar use the bright lance as their vert. :p
I thought I was smart by reskinning the merged guns, deleting the old bone. and it worked for some turrets. :p
... Then I thought I was smarter with other turrets by not deleting the imported bone and just adding the bone that was in the mesh to the skin, then re enveloping the skin. :p
Every turret animation set was surely created by different persons as they are all very different in structure... so different that I think the one person couldn't of worked on more then one turret.
I may stumble on a way, later on, but for now it is almost putting me in a mental health institute as everything else is going smooth and clean.
I wont lie and say this is as easy as doing animated characters, because it is more frustrating. at least with animated characters they stay the same and the merg works well. :p and when you do a character they usually have the same bone/object structure, not many different structures with missing animations in certain listening posts all with different names. LoL.
I am enjoying a "bitching" break from caving in the front of my skull on this CRT monitor. :P LoL, LoL, LoL... :p
It is a rather enticing challenge and as I learn more about all the turrets, I am sure they will pose new questions to me and make me go back over what I have already done and redo it. LoL. LoL. LoL... :p
LoL, LoL, LoL. I just found the dark eldar one and it is not aim vert but lp_ring wtf LoL. :p
LoL, I cant read the skin information of the guns after they are imported so I cant find the idle bones that make the guns move vertical in aim. :p
Chaos is stumping me as it only has vis animations. So it must be getting the animations from the marines somehow. LoL. :p I am not an OE master, but I would be assuming in OE that the chaos is calling on the marine turret horiz and vert aims and idles/vis/die. using the chaos vis mesh.
LoL Tau has two vert aims, one for the small guns and one for the big gunz. :p
Sisters I like as it was the easiest one. :P weapons 1 and 3 use the same barrel. :p This is fun, but slow. :p

I just need to get my head around the vis level. Whether or not like I did with the necrons, If I can only put in the objects which are needed.
what I am hoping is that it will use the animation sequences from the aims/idle with the correct objects in the vis level, so I can reduce the size of the vis anims.
Either that or get my head around how the vis animation section works.
LoL, Orks now have a 2nd vert aim as i needed to put one in for the shock attak gun.
I also needed to get funky with the skin so it didn't screw with the snotling loader.
I use the skin to work with the dark eldar destructors so the tubing didnt move with the guns. I dont think its perfect but it works. :p
I am going to have to find a way to do it with the marine turret and possible the chaos turret on the vert aim. :)
I have gone with the lazy vis way and put in what is needed in the vis level. It will probably blow up in my face if i ever get to burn sgms but i can merge in everything else if needed. :p
I need lots of tips around marker as that seems to also be one of my failing with getting models animated and in game.
Because I am still a noob I need to focus on important things like markers to be a better modeller.
Lol, It seems to be getting easier or I am royally screwing it up. :p
Most conflicts are easily resolved except this clone attached to the original as I need to re make the components of the mesh.
I borrowed the idea of the multiple vert bones for the guard so the new weapons didn't crash into the base object.
This $12.50 pc is sure earning its monies worth, :p

# crashing exporter.

bugger me if I know, I will just rebuild the meshes. :p

I thought it might of been clones attached to the original, but it doesn't let you do that.
It could be the button that makes objects unique. :p
