      Hello dude! How are you and your health?

      I just have one ask. Could you tell me how was your storyline and learning in modeling art? You style is very unique and damn good! Can you share a bit of you history/inspiration?

      Greetings from Brazil.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Greeings from Florida!

        I caught and shook off the Coronavirus, so I'm alright :)

        I decided to pick up modeling since I couldn't find anyone making what I needed for my projects.
        Unfortunately none of the guides were in English, the tools would regularly crash, and the guides which were in English were wildly outdated x_x

        It took me around 4 years to self-teach myself everything I needed to know to produce models with MdlVis, Magos' model editor, and Gimp 2 (my entire roster of tools)

        I love cartoony, colourful, simple graphics, and I sort of developed a style by combining a number of teachings from my favorite games

        Wheel of Time - taught me Lighting and World Building
        The Hobbit (2003) - taught me Proportions, Colours, and Effects
        Ruins of Myth Drannor - taught me how to make nice animations
        War of the Ring - taught me about Scaling and many collision tricks

        A lot of my scaling/exaggerated designs are also inspired by Warhammer miniatures

        Interesting! I really love you works, especially LOTR and WotK. Every project of you is very promising for me, i just love it.

        God bless you, comrade! You are very good at what you do! I hope that the recurring updates do not burry your projects!

        Good Afternoon

      Hello HerrDave,

      Tell me, after all of these great units, why don't you go for Ottoman units? Great Cannons, Janissaries, and Sipahis and such?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Mainly because I'm not very studied when it comes to the Ottomans; I know they had the most advanced gunpowder weapons during the renaissance, but that's about all I know x_x

        Recently I've been making things for Starbound, since Blizzard sprouted devil horns :<

      Do you allow it to be done?
      Here are the models I want to remake:
      Russian and English snipers

      Just wondering if I'm missing something or can't find your French Infantry models!

      Thanks keep up the great work :)
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        The old French models were taken down during the revamp

        They're on the top of the list for WotK pack reworks, but things have been wickedly busy over here, so don't expect them soon :(

      Hello Dave I was curious about your resident evil models any updates you can share on them?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        - Started working on the female zombie the same day I saw the comment about them, then I got sidetracked hard

        - Month or so later I started working on a revamp of "G"

        - Got sidetracked again until after Reforged, made a cop model with a bunch of base animations for the survivors, and I'll probably be updating the zombies to have more warcrafty proportions (and to match the new cop model)

        - currently scratching my head over the new EULA

      Herr Dave, I'd like to support your hiveworkshop modeling work by donating some money to you. Is there a way I can do that?

      I'm using your WWI and WWII models and I'm enjoying a lot using them. Great Job! Come on and finish more models for those packs! :D

        You'd written on some of the WW2 packs that more models is coming for those packs! Have you meant in all your WW2 packs(French, Russian, English, etc), or just few more nations? I don't get it, sorry.
        Mar 26, 2020
      4. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Ah, pardon the confusion

        Specifically, there's only going to be 3 new packs, but where the skin has space, there will be units from other nations in it.

        Like how the German pack has Austrian Infantry, and how the Russian pack has both Imperial and Bolshevik units.

      you use mdlvis for animating, right?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Yup

        Used it long enough to know that if it smells fear, it will crash and corrupt your model

        Aaaand I can give you tips for getting around some of it's bugs if you'd like
        Mar 25, 2020
      2. tillinghast
        tillinghast
        nah, used it since like 2008
        1.39 for animating and optimization, 1.40 for meshes
        it's just become incredibly frustrating with how limited the animation editor is

      Yo HerrDave, I wouldn't put salt to Blizzard's words. You always have this option: to go against them.
      You've made good, no, great models, and I've been glad to use your resources. So what if Blizz owns your old models and character names once you publish content?
      You're a creative person, no doubt. Change the names. Tweak the design. You can do better in the future than with these lower poly creations.
      Hell, I wouldn't put it past you to create a new way to make high resolution models with insanely low file sizes.

      I'd say finish your projects. Use it for your profile. They can't deny you that. This is just a stepping stone for you.
      After this, leave Blizz where they're at: in the past. You're the future now.

        Damn, quite a shame, Well I guess I'll have to improvise with TCW and KOA. I really hope Blizzard repeals this, or rewords it as in what they actually meant by it.

        You're a damn good modeller, could definitely put that too good use. Will you stick around on HIVE as a community member?

      Hi Dave! I saw in your post a reference to a Star Wars map you were developing that had space combat in it. I made one earlier (Battle for Tatooine) that made use of some star wars models and combat. I was wondering if you have publicized anything about your map? I'd love to get a look at someone else's space combat mechanisms.

      Anyway, sorry about this copyright nonsense! I'm pretty sure all my maps are screwed too. Some of it is custom music that I've taken from bands that probably have copyrights...so those might be gone. And obviously the Star Wars map is a bit dicey now.

        Interesting. I did the reverse; the capital ships stayed still and the players controlled the fighters. Anyway, if you want a bunch of Star Wars models I have a ton saved in my Battle for Tatooine map. Let me know; I can get you an unprotected version.

        Oh, thanks for the offer! :D

        Hey, maybe if Blizzard backs off on the EULA in the future, want to consider working together on a Star Wars project?
        Most of my assets are ground-troops based on Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2

        I'd certainly consider it. I'm also looking at jumping to Unity though; especially given all the bugs. My campaign is being play tested on 1.31 or whatever, but I can't imagine the bugs I'll have to deal with when I update to Reforged.

      Hi! I'm having a problem with 3 of the models from english infantry and officer: the belgian infantry, the commando and the ww2 officer. they show up full white in the editor and i dont understand why. I deleted them and downloaded again... still doesnt work
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        1 - Are you viewing them through a model editor, or the world editor?
        2 - If the world editor, could you show me a screenshot of them in it? (This'll help me work out what's going on)
        3 - Can you also show me a screenshot of your Imports/Assets window for the map? Sometimes there is a skin path error, but I've never heard of them going flat-white before

      Dave, i saw your post here https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/dont-make-mods-boycott-reforged-eula-update.321836/page-2
      and it really made me feel bad, i'm really sorry man , but you are a great artist/mapper and i encourage you to continue, let's wait a little, maybe the classic community will have to switch to an outdated client or something?, but it would really suck to lose modders like you, i also really like the tryndamere model you made and i will make use of it, even if i have to shove it alongside the HQ crap they are forcing us to use lol, it's just too good to be left unused, just like the rest of your models!
    20. Teitan
      Teitan
      Hey Dave, i wanted to thank you again for making the tryndamere model, it's very high quality (and nostalgic) , i have been working on the spells and i got a playable test map, check it out to see your creation in action!

      https://www.hiveworkshop.com/pastebin/d5f7782fe73edb87112bfd9f3c2047eb20286/

      I honestly don't know how i managed to make all the triggers work, i'm sure everything is very inefficient and full of leaks but the abilities work and it doesn't crash the game lololol (i tested it a lot)
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Excellent work, man! :D

        I'm no good at scripting/triggering, so that's borderline magic to me
