Title: Portable Spec KABAR
Post by: Infallible on October 11, 2009, 01:39:36 AM
Hi, I'm new here. Thought I'd post something, since I plan on applying for some mod space and figure it might be useful to get to know the community around here first.

Infallible Portable Spec KABAR

Meant for systems like PSP or DS, or games like Unreal and Quake.

I could give it out to anyone who wants to compile it for CS or CZ but I pretty much did it as a portfolio piece. It's done unless I notice something that I can significantly improve on it.

Welcome to the forum!

It's very well made considering the poly limit and the resolution of the texture.  For a PSP/DS model that would be really good, in fact it would probably look pretty good in Opposing Force too.

One thing to consider for future modelling is cutting off unseen faces, so that you can increase the poly count on the side of the model which is seen in game.

With a weapon model, it isn't usually worth expending too much detail on a grip/pistol grip, since this will most likely be completely obscured by the hands.  Basically you want the part of the model which is most visible to the player to be the most detailed part - this goes for textures and polygons.

In the case of textures you would want the texture covering the most visible part of the weapon to be relatively larger than those textures which cover obscured areas.

*phew* hope all that makes sense!

I remember you and your CDG antics. Hello.

I think the leather grip could be improved by making the stripes less prominent and by setting the highlight to soft light or something.

I couldn't really care less about what anyone thinks of me on the internet. Just want to chill.

Also the highlight is already on soft light. I agree about the stripes.

I don't have that game but if you want I could send the files. It's already getting a 1.6 or CZ compile, not sure which.

Here's an idea. Compile it for -both-. I'll do it for HL if you want.

Also, quick edit

IMO, but it's a matter of texturing style.

Blood groove might be textured too high on the blade, haven't checked it against refs though.

I set up the reference in photoshop before I textured. Also your edit would look horrible on a 128x128 map tbh, cleaner things look much better, and if I wanted it to look worn it's possible but not like that.

I'll PM you the files. Compile it for whatever you want, anything would be appreciated.

Dude my CS:S team started playing Assault-Cube competitively, so that would be amazing.
