Just want to give any of you xenophobic UT players a sneak peek at what I am getting into the game soon. Just gotta learn a few more material fx and details on what a custom character needs to work properly(sockets etc) and then I will unleash this beasty onto you guys to play with.
nice, its kinda creepy that his tounge is sticking out all the time though :P
im definatly looking forward to this
Its sticking out to show what it looks like. Its animated, and will only come out when in certain animations. The jaw closes and the tongue slides into the mouth. The tongue also has its own set of jaws too, so they snap at ya. One thing I may remodel though is making the head slightly transparent and making a brain model(like in the Hot Toys model) so you can look inside its head.
The skaarj is being remodelled, it just wasn't working visually as I expected.
The alien has a completely unique skeleton and animations. I just need to find out what animations the game looks for to operate correctly.
As for Invasion, man do I wish we had that gametype... I am waiting for some coder to create it for us to play again then I add this guy right in. As for a player model, it will probably look a little wierd playing as an alien, so that isn't my first choice.
I originally was going to use Gears for this alien becuase it has really nice AI, but the editor is brittle and crashes alot.
Thanks for those pix Phoenix, I can tell you really like the alien too
I'm actually using my Hot Toy models as reference on this one , but maybe you guys could make custom skins for this guy too.
Heres what the Alien model looks like: http://www.mwctoys.com/REVIEW_112906b.htm
