Also to Hugo, currently changing the models are not possible. There's several things in the way of that, not the least of which being that they're a proprietary 3D format in a compressed proprietary archive. The archive is the smaller problem, though.
Really cool look on the Aurora.
What early development gun models are you talking about? Can you find any pictures/video of what you're talking about?
That was super odd, I looked at the document before reading this comment, and I noticed immediately that was my document. Glad people are still finding that, though it should be updated.
Thanks a bunch for taking the time to make this, it should be quite useful! Looking forward to see what people come up with with it.
I have not installed anything, I am running on a fresh install with this mod and the patch that was released.
I chose Stalker at the beginning. The whole area was up in arms for about an hour and a number of stalkers died.
I hope if nothing else this helps. I'm really quite enjoying the mod otherwise, thanks guys!
I think this mod is absolutely fascinating and great work, I really appreciate you guys making this and I really can't wait to get into it.
I was just curious as I played a little bit last night, and I was a little confused. Is it normal for the game to start out an all out war zone? Immediately there were gunshots, all the Stalkers in the first 3 towns bundled together to fight a helicopter all the while mutants and bandits were attacking as well, people just dying left and right. I know the game is built to have these kinds of interactions, but is that normal for the first 10 minutes?
Everything starts small, and with concepts, images, and ideas. But that is not the quality level which it is put on ModDB.
There is no game, there is no mod yet. Therefore no page should be made yet.
Looks fun! Really enjoy seeing more of the game!
It's really nice seeing this game come together. When it was first being shown I was concerned about about a quality inconsistency with the art, but as you guys push closer and closer to the end, it just keeps improving and improving and the polish looks great.
I'm really happy to see you guys REALLY do know what you're doing. :)
Oh okay, so everything is just covered in dirt because it's in an apocalypse. Kool.
I realize it seems to make sense to make it look old and dirty because it's from all the way back during the Civil War, but I can imagine that during the Civil War, it probably wasn't all that old and dirty at the time.
"i fixed it"
It's technically better at least.
I'd have to say this one is still my personal favorite.
I don't have huge high hopes at all either, but I feel that if they were going just for money they would have bought it a few years ago.
I honestly like the first one better, but I have to admit this one is kind of cute. But the first one really sells the Pikmin feel.
Nice work on it anyhow, though. Others might like this one more, but personally I think the first one just fits the most.
Under the hypothetical that you wanted to improve this, honestly the background picture would definitely be the main problem. I like the floating on water idea, but I think it wouldn't be too hard to find something more 'foresty' with a hint of mysticality with a little pond.
Otherwise I don't really give a **** anyways.
Well honestly,I like the subtle ones a lot more than the one with thick edges, I think it looks a lot better. Personally I would prefer the frames that aren't edited, honestly.
I think it looks great too, though the first/final frame when it looks is a bit odd, why is it different from the rest of the frames with the thick outlines?
Either way I think you did a great job for sure! Keep it up!
Hate to say it but Meatbox stole these tiles too.
If you've removed the other tiles because of blatant art theft then it'd probably best to remove this too.
Sorry man, hope you can get back up on your feet with art content soon. If you're lucky the artist might give you the consent to use his work. Good luck!
Personally, I think you should just hold on and see what the artist says, you should message him directly yourself too, as the team leader. It will help you represent yourself.
If he's alright with it and you'd still like to use the art then you can do it just fine. But if he's not okay with it, of course you should remove all of his work and start from scratch with your own style separate from his.
I think for now you should emphasize that this is his work and that you do not have the rights to use it. It's obvious you mean well and I appreciate that.
Overall you're best off making the art from scratch and scrapping the stolen art, but if you get direct permission from him fantastic.
It's obvious that you should have his permission before making a public announcement about you using all the art he did.
And don't pretend like making the numbers are of the same artistic caliber and ability of the guy who made the rest of the art, let alone the fact that you wouldn't be making those numbers had you been able to get more than the '3' from the original picture. You just needed to finish the set.
Every single thing that you made that wasn't from the picture was a product of the work that was already stolen. There's no pride or integrity in theft.
Further, you went ahead and slapped your name on the whole sprite sheet which directly implies it was all done by you. No credit to the actual artist who made the majority of it. I'm not at all impressed and I find it shameful.
Jesus, man, that's way far from cool. It would be one thing if the majority of important things were done from scratch, but so many things I just blatantly stolen from someone elses project, and everything that isn't just stolen is a modified version of something that was stolen.
I mean,I'm all for you enlisting some help from Meatbox, I'm all for you going 2D, and I'm glad you've got a base of art to work from for your new version of the project..but all the art is stolen. It's all directly from that picture you showed in the news article, all of it.
I made the pictures larger so you can see better.
That's the picture in the article, and here's the art Meatbox 'made':
If you get permission from the person who created it to use in your project, fantastic, but don't credit Meatbox as your spriter if he's just giving you stolen material. Please consider reviewing the art you've been given so far and decide what you should do about it.
"No more updates until REAL progress."
Then posts this video with no progress at all, in fact, shows a picture of a Unity project that's irrelevant to BTL completely.
This is actually one of my favorite things I've seen so far, which actually says quite a bit! Great work, keep it up! I can't wait to see more and eventually try it out!
The English is a little poor, but it's certainly way better than no English and I definitely appreciate the effort! I think it would be fairly easy for someone who is fluent in English to go over the lines of dialogue and correct it, though they may to communicate with others to understand the full intentions and meanings behind the words.
Anyhow, glad to see the update! Seeing some English translation for the dialogue makes me happy!
You know, it's funny, at first it hurt looking at the third one, I feel the new curvature changed the personality of the sword, possibly the one that you felt best about. It seemed wrong to have suggested such a thing, but looking back, it just makes the sword look more natural, more real. Number two has character, and it's got a nice fantasy style, while number three is just a nice sword that could be used. It's hard to pick a favorite. I really do like them both. It's kinda funny, I think you did a great job and both are really nice swords!
I do hope to see your future work as well! Nice edits and nice work so far! You've gotten much better since you began, I'd love to see where it takes you. Great work!
Hey, you should make some nice renders for presentation and show some work here on your own page. I think it would be nice, I'm gonna follow you on here in case you decide to, then I'll get updated with pictures you post if you do.
Good luck with your future projects! Hope to see your work.
Eh, that's the fun of criticism! You don't have to agree with it. I just hope to see more models in the future! Good luck, hope the go well.
It's impossible to deny how adorable this is. I've always had quite a fondness for it.
