Well, the Q-Forcer has proven to be a great success. Frankly, I think it really is an enjoyably Quakish model. So, I decided it was time for another for the series..



This time, it's a Stroggish endeavour. I'll probably give him a (somewhat) normal right hand for the Q3 player version, but otherwise it will look quite like the original..

(As with the Q-Forcer, this will not be an official part of Generations, unless we get a green light on it by all the (foxing) parties.)

And we get the 3 classic skins for him - light guard, shotgun guard, and machinegun guard?  I already think I know what taunt animation that you have in the works.  Slipgate - Laugh

Yup, I'm modelling him in such a way that all 3 versions will be skinnable. :]

To be honest, I hadn't thought about animation details yet, but come to think of it, there's lots of material to work with.. :]

Oh good, another player model I won't see flying around on Central. Slipgate - Wink

All kidding aside, this should turn out interesting. Keep it up, Tab! Slipgate - Thumbs up!

We ever get that drowning noise fixed and Qforcer will pay a visit to Central.

Q-Forcer:
I've adapted OoPpEe's soundpack, adding that drown sound. The 'official' combination of files that, concerning the model author Thumbs up!, should be distributed, are these:
removed

Btw, I've also made this: installation 'overview', which might come in handy for those who have a hard time keeping track of all my unofficial additions to Generations.. ;]


Light Guard:
Have made some progress, but nothing worth a screenshot. I'm really looking forward to skinning this one. :]

He's going to be a bit beefier than the Q2 version, otherwise he'll look downright out of place amongst the Q3 characters. That said, he'll take quite a bit of tweaking 'till I'm happy yet..

And some comparison-shots showing the original:

The Q-Forcer has been updated.
Because of the swimming bug, this one and the mess of pk3s that was starting to grow, here's a complete pack. Credits are inside, but it's all you need. Consider this an official release.

Complete Q-Forcer Pack
Edit: Down until all bugs are fixed.

Hehe, no prob - credit where due. :]

I think I'm done setting up the model. All edges made visible and turned correctly, aside from a wee bit of tweakage, this baby is now ready for unwrapping..

Finally.. a Q2 model/skin worth using! ..tho I haven't seen the skin yet.. but given Tab's long line of success in that department, I have no reason to worry about that.


Side note about the ol' Q-Forcer... the swim animation seems to be fixed..somewhat. Just that now he walks instead of swims when in water. Slipgate - Smile

Nice work on the Strogg guard!  I really like this guy so far.  I'll see about uploading old Qforcer to the Central server shortly as well.

Thanks.
I'm pretty happy with his shape, next on my worries list is 'have I correctly anticipated rigging and animation?' :]

Spawn: the waterwalking is intentional. This is why I referred to it as 'very QuakeWorldish' solution to the problem. ;]

I just tried out the Qforcer model, and I can't get it to show up in any menu at all, not even default Q3 if I put it in baseq3.  I'm not sure what's going on with that, it showed up before...

Heuuu... blast. I should have tested that, too. I just used the exact set of files you handed me in the fix, trusting that it would work if I simply re-packed those.

More news on the Q-Forcer will follow later.

The Guard has been unwrapped.




If anyone is interested in skinning this model, let me know and I'll release an SDK for it.

Well, I had to make some minor adjustments (a pain in the neck, but that's animation (that's animation.. life.. get it? Slipgate - Smile). Anyway.

It's rigged!



Now all it needs is a small bunch of skins and a big bunch of animation frames ...
