Hey everybody, lets start this one with my own video update:
Well! now that, that out of the way lets get right to it, Alexjb666 has been working hard recently to bring his tripod model up to maximum spec and has indeed done so - He's been literally throwing new stuff at me all week about it so I fell obliged to throw it at you guys too enjoy:
That not enough eh? Well then! check these videos out:
That's about it for now, that is for videos, pictures and all that kinda crazy stuff but I have got some more things to mention - One of which being that I will be on holiday for Easter so well.. expect another possibly large update if we don't get another done for this Saturday coming.
On a different note everybody on the team is working hard on different things, for instance MrCupCake is currently modeling a 'horse and cart' as well as some of the ye'oldie cars of that time and Salsa_Shark is working on more weapons for you to use on those gosh darn martians. we are yet to reveal what will be the 'Common Enemy' as such... oh the suspense..... We will tell you next time ^_^' you probably hate us now.
Ok! well now I have two more great things to mention, We have a new member to ThunderChild Developments and I'd like you all to give him a warm welcome ^_^ He's called Rogue74 and he will be our Concept Artist & Texture Artist, his work is fantastic too so yeah... that helps! the next thing I'd like to mention is that I've set up a... well not so finished forum for the WotW Game page on Moddb its actually rather nifty and works great - feel free to drop in as I intended a 'Grand opening' for this update, See ya on there I guess.
Thanks for reading...erm watching... ah! you get what I mean....
I love it, its incredible! very good job guys.
The animations/model are exelent
that's really cool. Love the tripod model, never thought it would look like that. Great design!
could someone PM me (or not) and explain what this is ? free open soruce game? mod? .... what? i R confused
Ok dude, I pm'd you a this but if anybody else was confused here we are:
War Of the Worlds: The Game (Or WotW the game) is a game based on H.G wells book and also has elements of the musical and more - The game ORIGINALLY was going to be a Mod for Half Life 2 made using Source however very early on this idea was scrapped because the Source engine apparently holds a lot of restrictions of coding (which will be a big part in this project) so thats why you may have thought it to be a mod.
Whilst we scrapped the idea of it being made on Source somebody also mentioned the UDK Engine (Unreal Engine) to me telling me it was free and of high standard, I decided to change the project into a full on Game that runs off the UDK Engine and is being built essentially from the ground up (apart from the engine of course) so well, thats our current situation.
In short, Its a stand-alone game that will be made using the UDK Engine and will be free to download when released.
Wow, love the animations, I'm pleasantly surprised!
Looking great! Glad to see you are making some progress, and can't wait to see some of that new concept art ;)
this is really great idea! i mean as far as the models go its just like in the book! (not like the ones for that tom cruise movie ((which was really cool btw as far as the tripods)) )
My only concern with the animation is there are several times that two of the feet are off the ground... I do believe it would fall over if that happened...
the walking with joints looks awful, but the first one only need some refineryments. I know it's hard to make a tripod with stiff legs walk, and make it look good but you can, there are a couple of good animations on youtube ^^
