Stormie's new/ported models

4 posts in this topic

Hey everyone!

Back in late summer I made this thread as I needed help porting Toshi's Luke Jedi Robes model from Jedi Academy. Well, I kind of dropped the project for a while because of school but I really want to get this done soon, preferably before Christmas. The mod is actually near completion, but I wanted to make this seriously and so I took it a step further.

Here's the progress so far :

The original model has been scaled and reshaped where needed be, I used the hands from the PMBAM model as that method would make it easier for the skinning process. Speaking of which, skinning is done, or at least to at satisfactory level: there seems to be a fine line between looking good and OHMYGODWHYWOULDITBENDLIKETHAT. So there's still a bit of stretching going on in certain animations, but overall I think I wouldn't be able to make it much better.

I also created an alternative robe item using textures from another mod (but I do think it needs some tweaks)

Naturally, I used the only unoccupied spot for the item (PMBJM) and created two quick items with descriptions. Those are, however, kind of uninspired so if you have any ideas, feel free to throw them in.

Here's the cool part. I wanted this mod to feel complete and that couldn't be possible if there was no female version for this. So I went ahead and completely remodeled the robes to fit the base female body model from TSL in Blender. It was finicky, tedious and frustrating, because I suck. But I came through, as you can see:

I haven't finished the skinning process for the female model yet.

So that's it for now. I still don't quite know how to put these items into the world though, so I might need a bit of help on that matter further down the line.

This is my very first attempt at modding and there has been a steeeep learning curve to get here.

I should add that I have complete permissions from the original authors of those files, I can provide screenshots if requested.

Oh and as the title suggests, I have a few other ideas for models once this will be done, but I prefer to focus on the task at hand for now.
