GoblinRubberDuck

Submitted by MiniMage, Pvt.Toma, Red
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Oh dear, gentlemen. Our ship has gone done, but have no fear, we have our trusty rubber duckies! It'll surely keep us afloat!

Made to go together with my other model that I am making. When that naval vehicle gets destroyed and sinks, this little guy shortly pops up. Is meant to be able to rescue.

Although it has a walk animation because I used the orc transportship as a base.
If anyone would be in the mood to animate a makeshift swim animation, that would be awesome.

Anyhow, here it is, enjoy.

Edit: Red helped out with a cool skin for the rubber ducky.
Edit x2: Pvt.Toma helped out with a swim animation.
Edit x3: Preparing for expanding this bundle. See the last post for more information.
Edit x4:

Done:
- Item version of the rubber duck
- Attachment version of the rubber duck.
- The goblin have proper beach attire. (Re-animated the model myself after remaking the mesh.)
- Parasol
- Beach chair
- Barbecue Grill

To do:
- Non-swimming animations for the goblin.
- Freezebox
- Suntan lotion bottle
- Snorkel
- Diver's Air tank
- Goblin Diver
- Beach Volleyball
- Beach Volleyball Net
- Lifeguard Post
- Inflatable Rubber Pool (Also done, will also need some tweaks.)
- Mobile Hotdog vendor
- Mobile Ice cream vendor

Ideas that will be easy to do that I might as well do.
- Bathtub with duck toys
- Souvenir Shop
- Souvenir Shop Circular rack (With fast food. I've already made those models.)
- Souvenir Shop Cooled box (With soft drinks, also already made those models.)

    As stated, my purpose was to make hive better, therefore my uploads, therefore the credits to the authors, so they could get credited if the uploaded models would be used. Simply filling gaps here and giving something back as much a puppy can do. Don't request things you could do yourself.

    And I don't see me loosing the civil tone, since I still have great respekt for everyone here doing their job and I think I have stated that many times.
    My above questions were honest ones.
    If I would have made these models from scratch, perhaps even improve them, while comparing them to the original mesh (that would have been in my capabilities now, even as puppy ^^) and would have uploaded them, well, that would feel like a rip-off even following the rules of this site, wouldn't it?
    But I tried, as stated, everything to give credit where credit is due.

    And if someone gets pissed because of this while speaking of high moral, then I try to give him a comparison for beeing able to understand his counterpart and for beeing able to treat each other with the respect they deserve.
    And I still think, if the above comparison would have occured, he would be pissed, wouldn't you, too?

    Yeah, but you should have asked first. By not doing that you do not deserve the same rights on this case.

    I don't really see why, but I will answer them.

    Naturally, knowing your own limitations. You ask the person if he'd be able to help you. You explain what you'd like and give some background information about your project to raise some interest from the person in question. Proper etiquette, in a word. You know you desire something. If you do, you ask.

    Yet, you didn't ask. It was an afterthought. The bundle you uploaded had been up for two days before you even thought about asking.

    You've already stated that you don't care about credit, therefore by that logic, you shouldn't care. Be happy that usefulness is being added to the community.

    Imagine you want to light up a christmas tree. It's in the past and a lightbulb has just been invented. So you break into an inventors house and hang all the lights over the tree. Now, the tree is a fire hazard, the flaws of the work in progress lightbulb is clear as day. You didn't ask if you could borrow the lightbulbs, or if the inventor could make better bulbs more suited to your needs. When your tree bursts into flames, you assume that by not asking, you've done a service to mankind and that you deserve to be rewarded. Your thought process is like that of a spoiled child. Please go to your room and rethink your actions.

    Yes, sry for my part on this... at least the civil tone is now back in, that is a foundation for further work here on hive. I appreciate it.

    Only some notes.
    Asking was no afterthought, it was a proposal of a member here. I would have never thought that someone could be against his models beeing spread under his name. That seems to me one of the core motivations to post them here in the first place. There aren't even download-counts lost, cause of the different uses. And as stated it is much better than encountering a "copy" which would have followed the rules.

    If I wouldn't have been able to teach/tutorial me the modeling skills for the needed tweaks (it wasn't as easy ^^), I would have made a proper request to an active modeler, but I try to do as much as I can myself before asking someone.

    Your christmas comparison has some flaws, too. With the already invented lightbulbs I enlighted my christmas tree quite well, without asking the inventor, but hanging a big sign in front of my window with the inventors name, so everyone could see that his lightbulbs could even be used for christmas trees. Now the inventor is angry, cause he could have made a better chain of lights (nobody hindered him) and branded the "thief".

    Most things are based on iteration and inspiration of other things, but using someone else work is still in the right of the original author not yours.
    Your statement is understandable, but asking before editing and uploading someone else's model shows that you have respect for the work and for the rules and most importantly for the feelings of said person. By not doing so, you fail to show respect and compassion.

    Your wish and right to upload and share resources is not on the same level as the rights of the original authors and the site rules. Personal rights of the original author go hand in hand with site rules and are much stronger. You should respect that.

    Again this is a heads-up for you and not meant in any way offensive. This is for you NOT to do the same mistakes over and over again and spare us and you the nerves and time to show you that you did wrong.

    Sure. Since "I would have never thought that someone could be against..." there is only a one time reminder needed. Minimage could have even done that himself, cause he was linked to his new model upload from the beginning.

    €dit: and as long as we are into it: I don't find a dustbin shield attachment on hive and could need one. You know, the lid. Would be a great addition and fitting to the rubbish armor already here :)

    Made some minor progress. The swim animation still annoys me, but trying to fix it at this time is making me tired as hell. Here's a picture though. The trunks are TC. The wrap of the body is decent. It's not flawless, but it's at least better than before.

    I'm just about finished with the rubber duck 2.0,

    What do you mean by other variants btw? Do you mean like other races?
    @Daffa the Mage

    I've been thinking, should I add some animations to the rubber ducky and smash it together with the model I use for my goblin workers? Technically if I grant the workers a snazzy swim morph animation, I can make my goblins go from work to play with a quick skip into a lake. Might take a while longer for me to upload though.

    I thought you were going to name multiple races. But alright. Might be a little tricky though because I'd have to construct an additional custom mesh to enable the swimming. Still tinkering with the to-do list.

    That's the barbecue thing in action.

    Actually, I like this one. This looks like a gag model, but there are Blizzard models that are gags as well.
