The Veiled Stars is a single player mod for Mount&Blade: Warband. It is set during the War of the Ring.
Very nice, what do you use to do bumpmap or is it part of the GIMP?
Also how long did it take to model, texture and do the bump mapping?
Thank you! I use different programs for creating bump maps depending on the complexity of the model. For simple things such as swords, I use CrazyBump - a simple tool which generates normal maps from the diffuse. That's what you see in this video. I then edited the generated map in GIMP to create the finished product. For more complex items, such as armours, I use xnormal and generate normal maps from high poly meshes.
All told, it took me about 45 minutes from sitting down at my laptop to finishing the item.
Have you considered slowing it down and possibly explaining stuff so those of use that aren't as skilled yet could get better? I mean I tried some modeling but I often end up using the "long" way of doing stuff here I noticed you used shorter methods while still getting the same results.
I'll see if I can find some time in October to make some modelling tutorials. :)
This same model would be good enough for that :D
You could post it to the youtube channel you have, give us more to watch there, also outstanding job! Keep up the amazing work
i wish i could do that *_*
"the Dark Lord Jarvisimo forged in secret a Master scimitar...to control all others. And into this scimitar he poured his cruelty, his malice" Oh wait wrong weapon...
Impressive work Jarvisimo.
very nice job
Great video!! i would love some tutorials made by you!
Well, I'll consider making some in October for you.
Thanks! i will be looking forward to it!
double edged sabre seems kinda wierd but meh it still looks awesome
A bit edgy at some points, perhaps even a lack of details at the diffuse/normal map and the design seems to be a bit unpractical, but all in all clean, simple modelling and texturing. Good work.
"ÅH JÄVLAR vad snyggt!!!" is what I said - wile watching this! :O
BEST VIDEO EVER... of all time
holy **** thats nice
Amazing stuff as always Javi
You sure have a talent in giving people what they want, all we can ask for is that you dont give up with making this mod so take all the time you need.
