View Full Version : Tron and Transformer ONS TC's are a wet dream of mine

yes, i posted once b4, but with this nice new layout i wanna let more ppl see it and be the first to post here :D
Tron would relatively simple model/texture wise as it would need to like the original IMO. not the fancied up tron fps.
transformers would totally kick a$$ and it definitly seems possible as the laviathan shows. although im unsure if they should be vehicles, or every player *is* the vehicle and can choose what to be. perhaps from a 'class' selection window before joining the game like BF.
anyway, i love the design aspect, but i dont have the skills to do it all myself, but i had to get the idea out :D.
(and yes, there are the copyright issues, but sometimes the modders get left alone, sometimes they dont. i think these are worth considering, maybe some simple name changes could make it possible)

Hasbro closes down any mods based on their licnese unfortuantly. I started penciling out a transformers .plan but it got kinda complicated.
But tron...... man that would be super sweet.
I'm a big tron fanboy.

I've allready started on an optimus prime figure, and in fact some one else has allready done one... Mine is based on the toy from the 1980's. And it is possible to get them to transformer two and from vehicles/robots BUT not entirely sure on how or what to do. I have allready asked epic about this concept and they told me but I have slept since then. Do a search for Transformers in the skinning/mod/script help section. You would have to design two models.....the character in robot form and then the vehicle form. You would have to start with the player pawn first, Then when the player pressed a special key to transform you would have the script show the tranformation animation. Then you would have to switch the player pawn with a vehicle pawn in the script for the vehicle form so the movement properties change. They said that they dont think it would be possible to have a player figure DRIVE just like a vehicle. Dont work the same way. But its possible just will take a while!

I truly do think they should be vechicle not a char. Choosing who you want to be is no fun if you ask me. I would rather play run to the Transformer and enter it.

If someone else can do a good job of modeling a couple of Transformers, I could lend my skills to the coding side of it.

Ya know, now that i think of it, maybe it would be easier to just make it an entire vehicle all together and when it transforms into the robot, its basically like driving a mech. That sounds better, but i think i will do both and see how they go...if i ever get that damn maya male skeleton from 3dbuzz!

And once again we arise from the dead. I put my model on pause. I still have it....finished...just havent done the animations for it....UGH! I have done several vehicles. So I am partially there. Maybe if I ever figure out how to switch animations when the robot changes modes I will do a full vehicle of him. Since I allready have the model.

LOL...i have the remake of him here on my desk! He is sweet...But you cant deny OPTIMUS PRIME IS DA BOMB DIGGITY!

I a 4 pack...Hot Shot, Optimus, Starscream, and Megatron, and a transformers themed map...I can see the mayhem now!..:D

If you can do the map I can do the models....but we have to use some sence on it cuz megatron you cant really use cuz he changes to a gun....who wants to try and code that....so he is usable as a weapon for other players and a vehicle????
