Report RSS Matched combat animations preview - Part 1

Mae govannen!

From over month I didn't post any article, so I decided to break this silence and show you new features which we have added to mod.

One of the most important problems that modders who want create mod in other place than Japan on Shogun 2 have to face are animations. Many people told me: "You can't make LotR mod on Shogun, samurai didn't use shield, so you can't create units with shields, Gondor army without shields will be hilarious!".

Of course, in vanilla Shogun 2 we don't have shields, and any mod before didn't add this in 100%. But, currently we can easlly export Shogun 2 animations file, edit this, and import again. Thanks to Empire, we have special unit stats for shields.

So, I'm glad to show you new combat animations. They were made by CherJair (who joined to team month ago) and in videos below you can see part of his work:

There are not all of them, besides the combat animations, CherJair is working also on non combat ones (like walk, stealthy steps etc.) ;)

In the same time, I'm still working on a new models, in images section you can find some screenshots ;)

Numenorear Spearmen

That's all for the moment, soon I will publish more preview ;)

Maer gwair!

This is a beautiful and unique, but I have a question. Will these specific animations apply to all factions and units? The style looked pretty elite, and I just don't see an orc being able to use a sword like that. You guys are doing great on the mod and I can't wait for its eventual release.

Not at this moment. Preparation of animation it's many work. Curently we have 100 matched combat animations... and this is only spear shield vs 2h sword and spear shield vs spear shield. So, on first we want to prepare working mod, and maybe in future we will add more animation variantions ;)

Cool Sara cool!! You just realize my dreams,, you can create not only an amazing mod but also a new LOTR game based on S2,, keep up the way,, you can also import Warhammer skeletons for beasts and other units such chariots and animations instead of create them from scratch the vitue of them is Dynamic Joint which is missing from the S2 skeletons,, I'm glad to join the team if you want maybe I can give you some help and enjoy the development.

I forgot to mention something about the swordman, I feel the guard style he uses is too much similar to Samurai guard style(Plug) however this syle was used in Medieval period in Europe but I feel using German tryle (Vom Tag) is better for this longsword,, and also I feel using one hand in some strikes and defences is better, however I know it's hard and accurate work, looking forward to an epic mod, Well Done!

On this moment CherJair use vanilla Shogun 2 animations as a base, so this will be looks similar to vanilla fight. Maybe in future we will try add completly new animations or from other TW (RII/Attila)
