      Will you add the icon to the model?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Sorry man, but I'm going to pass on the icon :(

      Since you are making things from War of the Ring, can you make/upload the Dwarven Hall*? I need it as a teir 2 keep for my Dawi from the Warhammer map.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        When I get around to finishing the model, it (alongside all of the other assets in my map) will be uploaded at roughly the same time. :)

      Greetings, Agent of Making. Is there a chance you craft that 'Wolf's Head, the mighty Grond?'
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I intend to, otherwise I won't be able to finish my map.

        Only trick is finding a design that isn't from the movie.

        Gladdened I will be when your map sets its foothold on hive. However, in case non-movie based models you want to craft, perhaps you may be interested in Lovecraftian universe references.

      Sorry for being a pain but you can just use your Warcraft crusader animations, I already mentioned what they did etc with the help of Sniper of Darkness. I would like this to be done before the 29th but if you can't do it when you are free.
      Sorry for Brothering you.

      Sorry for bothering you,but what 3d programs do you use as a modeler ?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Mdlvis - For animating and editing models

        Magos' Model Editor - for importing and extracting geosets or textures to the model

        BLP Lab - for compressing textures

        Gimp 2.0 - for texturing

      Hows the mounted druzhina?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I'm getting befuddled with the design once again - will you be so kind as to send me an exact description or picture of what you want? (I've got conflicting designs to work with)
        Jul 21, 2017
      2. Hazop
        Hazop
        Use the image I sent, just replace the cape thingy with the armor of the druzhina you made. Use the same shield as the druzhina and instead of sword, spear. You can use the same animations u used in your villager cavalier.

        Ah yes.

        The reason I don't have Hook's arm going all the way back like in the original animations is because it's a crippled limb, and Hook generally kept his arm close to his chest.

        The only times he broke the habit was when he was fighting or using his hook to make a point while talking.

      HerrDave when you can, can you modify the druzhina animations to not be that peasantish? He is kinda clumsy, when druzhina were trained soldiers like knights. If you can I want him to have the Gondor Swordsman animations or something.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I'll need more details about the Druzhina, what they did, how they did it, how skilled they were and what weapons they used - high reason being is I'm going to have to change the Gondorian Swordsman's animations :(
        Jul 16, 2017
      2. Hazop
        Hazop
        SNIper of DARKness" For reference the Druzhina was a group of men in early Rus who helped the prince administering his principalit. The individual member of druzhina was known as druzhinniki and the first members of druzhina were actually Norse warriors (varangians), they were eventually joined by members of the local Slavic aristocracy and adventurers . The weapons they used varied from Swords and Axes to Maces. They were trained warriors but not quite on par with the Feudal Knights which trained from a young age and almost constantly.
        In summary Druzhina is a group of warriors in service to a lord. Boyars on the other hand were not necessarily all warriors but if they were they were mostly better equipped and way better trained."

        You can give him (if direfury permits) direfurys footman animations or animations for units you did before the current (no Gondor) Warcraft Crusader!! animations fit well with this, I just want anything but the peasantry militia style animations, doesn't seem realistic. You can do this now or later your choice

      I Love ur models but there is a proplem with ur captain hook . his walking animation is wired , when he walks , the action of same-side limbs towards the same direction .
      wish u could fix this .
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I'm not entirely sure what you mean, could you show me?
        Jul 13, 2017
      2. paladinjst
        paladinjst
        when he walks , the left arm and left leg towards the same direction at the same time , so are the right arm and leg .
        Jul 14, 2017
      3. paladinjst
        paladinjst
        The correct way is that when the left arm in front of body then the left leg behind the body , the same as right side

      It's been long, so pardon me for being too direct, but you told me you would be making a Crossbowman model any news on that or is it all dead on the western front?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        All dead on the western front ;n;

        Can you send me a picture of what you'd like him to look like?

      Came here from the LV/DV model, you can probably teamcolor the lightsaber... oh wait, it'd be a pain to work with because you'd need both transparency and teamcolor.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I could probably do it, but I also need to keep in mind that the model needs to work well alongside stormtroopers using the same teamcolor, which won't always be red :[

      By the way, is there a particular reason why you're not using unit textures from WoTR?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I can open and view the skins, but I can't save them.

        The one skin I got out of the game was in .tga format and outside the unit folder - specifically the Sauron skin.

        It's resolution was pathetically small (128x128), so I've updated the hell out of it for my upload here on the Hive.
        Jul 2, 2017
      2. A Void
        A Void
        I'm actually looking into the archives of WoTR and the textures are easily accessible, but I can't access model files .lmd, it's some sort of closed source format. However there is a way to rip these models, the brute forced way, I will try something and report back.

        Most unit textures are in 128x128, I could uspscale them to 512x512 if it would make things easier for you. Converting and manipulating textures is a piece of cake.

        Edit: I found a way to rip models from the game!

        Cool! I like how it looks similar in style compared to Warcraft 3. I'm also working on a BFME map. :)
