Swordsman

Submitted by Elenai
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Updated Swordsman model.

Created from the HighElf Peasant Model.

Me and General Frank edited and revised the model to make it alot better.

Credits to Elenai/me for: editing/creating the original model, wraping the chest, arms, sword, and pelvic armour, and other tweaks such as adding the pelvic armour and sword.

Credits to General Frank for: wraping the robe, adding the shoulder pads, fixing the decay animation, changing the head/helmet, and all around giving good support.

Give credits to the both of us if you use this in your projects. And ask us first for permission to edit.

    this is the meaning about diference...., not excellent, but it is better than nothing i will tell you the true: 7/10 ( the helm is repetitive, and knigts are too monotone, a robed one is impressive, and this one looks like a templair knight, so, i can tell u: "well done")

    I raised the neck...but i wont lower the shoulder pads. Because the neck and head are perfectly proportioned already and I like the shoulderpads as they are.

    I updated the pic and the model...though it was a small update.

    The polycount is not bad. I tested a battalion of these models ingame and it ran fine so it shouldnt lag you.

    A shield might be considered in the future, but I do not know. A cape however will probably not happen, as I cannot find a bone set on the High Elf peasant that this model is based on to simulate/support a cape. To be honest though this model reminds me of a Gondor captain or Elendil.

    Its not really visible ingame however I had difficulty wraping the orbs. The silly captain skin had no jeweled orbs to wrap with. :D

    The 'orbs' should be billboarded planes and you know it.

    RDZ: show me where the bones for the orbs are on the High Elf peasant model and how to attach the orbs to them and i'll gladly make the orb spheres billboards.

    However the intent was not to make the sword like the footman's, it was to make it look nice.

    I havent improved the sword as of yet.

    But I often go back and update my old models so its plausible that a new sword will be made in the future.

    For now...its hardly noticable ingame.

    No Ghost. If you want a proper cape that waves in the wind and all that, I would need to attach a cape to animated cape bones, those are non-existant on the high elf peasant
