  • Happy Birthday!

    I wanted to ask about the icons for the Estalian/Spanish unit pack. Excuse me. :)

    Thanks in advance! I will really wait! :)
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    There we go, icons added :)

    I had to rebuild the Spanish Swordsman, since after I finished his icon I found I didn't like the way he looked with a full beard

    Wow, that's great! Thank you so much! If I can do what I’m doing, I’ll share the result with you. :)
    Hey man will you make Dol Amroth Knight unit ?
    Some interesting concepts for you to like. :)
    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.
    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none of the guides were in English, the tools would regularly crash, and the guides which were in English were wildly outdated x_x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?
    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 :<

    Well, i would say you can make good models if you see some pictures for them?
    Greetings! I want to ask one thing. I need to remove guns from your models.
    Do you allow it to be done?
    Here are the models I want to remake:
    Russian and English snipers
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Go for it :)

    Good luck with your project, by the way :D

    Many thanks!
    Hey HerrDave,

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

    Thanks keep up the great work :)
    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 :(
    Hi, I just want to ask how are you there, Herrdave? You doing fine? I am reading the news about the virus and US has skyrocketing infections. Hope you're doing just fine.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Outside of some people buying up-- just about everything from the grocery stores, life has remained vastly unchanged for me

    1/8 people down here are losing their minds, the rest think the media are blowing it out of proportion

    Right now I'm having a hearty breakfast of 1 can of coca-cola :p
    Hello Dave I was curious about your resident evil models any updates you can share on them?
    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

    ah okay thanks for the update!
    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
    HeroEditor
    HeroEditor
    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.
    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?
    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
    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
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Oh yes ;-;

    (Bundle) Thanks for giving me permission to use this model's animations! ツ
    Also, I'm a Kraut, so I enjoy your WW-themed models!

    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.

    Yes, fuck the EULA indeed.
    Keep going you amazing False Kaiser, your talent is amazing and I'm really hoping to see your maps finished and you being a happi boi.

    Joining the fanboy squad! You were the person that was on my mind when I read about that new EULA. Keep fighting!
    Will you be making more models? In the near future? ( Regarding the EULA :\ )
    Hazop
    Hazop
    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?
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Me too

    I'm here to stay, just don't know what I'll be doing

    Been playing a lot of Lord of the Rings: Online lately, published a guide for the Captain class

    Ah, well okie, cya around then! Take care and things :)
    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.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    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
    darwin
    darwin
    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
    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

    I posted the screenshots on the english infantry resource comment section

    so they really kill remastered and screwed classic? the classic force me to update
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Yup.
    Now it's always online, anything we create belongs to Blizzard, and our entire B.net accounts can be banned if they don't like what we make :(
    aeman

    wow they literally turned w3 community to communist
    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!
    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)
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    Excellent work, man! :D

    I'm no good at scripting/triggering, so that's borderline magic to me
    Hi HerrDave
    could you please give me a older version of your Whitecloak that fit Heinvers's Scarlet Captain since he's not active to update the skin so I would like to get that version.
    also, could you post or share this older Whitecloak model I'm sure there're quite a number of folks who want to use Heinvers's Scarlet Captain skin
    Thank you
    SalmaHorma555
    SalmaHorma555
    well, that was unfortunate
    Anyway thank so much for quick answer XD, I'll check it out
    BTW, could I edit your Scarlet Crusader Pack skin, just wanna make a TC version for them and upload on Hive's 2D manipulation Workshop.

    and, Sorry very much if you got report from me ToT, I was mistook the Report as response to comment, greatly apologize for such mistake.
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    By all means, go for it! :D

    Don't worry about it, they haven't hung me yet :p

    Sorry for the late response, I've been moving around a bunch
    SalmaHorma555
    SalmaHorma555
    No worry, TC skin coming right up.
    BTW, the custom campaign that you suggest me is Chasing the Dawn and I only found the older Questioner which I already has but not the Whitecloak unfortunatly, thanks anyway

    (Post) Awesome model!, you are very good recreating models textures & animations from other games
    Reputation (+4):
    (Bundle) Very nice model as usual, but the hatch dude's animations are a bit floaty. Just speeding him up in some places would help a lot
    Hey HerrDave I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love your models, I was wondering though (and due to a lack of resources on hive) especially with you since you love historical stuff like I do (and I'm remaking american colonization), Idk if you do requests though sorry to bug you but if maybe you could do a native american/african pack (like workers for both, maybe bowmen and or some kind of melee unit for both), I'd love for those to be on hive, it would mean a lot for historical maps, thanks a lot!
    HerrDave
    HerrDave
    I could easily make the colonials, but I'd really struggle with natives because of the texture & wrap

    Most of my bare-chested/armed models have seams around the shoulders and neck that are usually obscured by a pauldron or monstrous feature, but with African / Native American tribesmen I'd need to flawlessly wrap a body (something I've yet to successfully do, latest attempt was the Greenskin Savage)

    I'll need time to make them, and I'll need to draw, or have someone help me draw up, a skin that can wrap around a body without seams
