Lets face it, Virus is starting to look a little long in the tooth. I tried reskinning him myself but Upaint keeps throwing a hissy-fit and I don't have photoshop. So I'm sending out a request to tech him up a bit.

Cheers!

I was actually thinking something more along the lines of the Xan Kriegor style plating (bored cooling holes, clean lines, generally less steampunk look)

Send a word to Klasnic, he may have something for ya. Though he is busy on another project so youre request will be waiting a while.

I already skinned him in EVILution, that's here (http://skincity.beyondunreal.com/?section=skins&action=show_infos&id=1769)

And four times previously in TeamEx Pt.2 which I never released cause it wasn't good enough... If the EVILution one isn't good enough / isn't what you want, I can take the best of the TeamEx ones and re-skin it if you want (should only take 30mins or so) but it'll take a while to upload to SaD... :)

Almost what I'm after (proabably download that pack tomorrow. Nice work by the way!). See if you take a look at our buddy Xan, you see he has this really sweet modern look to him which I was hoping to replicate onto virus only in a different manner (I was thinking sort of a matt grey with this eerie green glow coming from the armour seams and that big lightish looking thing on his head and chest). Generally he'd probably end up looking less like an old locomotive and more like a bullet train (that was a terrible comparison on my part).

Umm... Well if you wanna' wait 'til I'm finished my new pack I'll see what I can do. Meanwhile, here's something else - Nothing special just a very fast skin :lol:

I'll have him off to SaD in a while.

:lol: Cantar it's not up to my usual standards as I literally threw it together but I expect to get started on a new one later (separate from the XL pack). I wanna' experiment with something so what better way to do it than make a skin :D

Shadowdevil can you post more pics of exactly what you're looking for. Close ups of the bits on Xan that you want on Virus so that I can get him close to what you're looking for. I'm guessing you want a chrome kettle rather than a tea pot (joke to myself)

Klasnic, I'm sorry to do this but I got a mountain of stuff to do. I'll probably get around to getting those images up later in the week.

klasnic

Klasnic, I think you are always busy.

16th Aug 2004, 01:31 PM
Sometimes I'm skinning like mad and other times I just need a break to actually play the game and look at what I've done... Right now it's a skinning phase so hopefully I'll put out a few good ones hehe

Darth_Chaos
16th Aug 2004, 01:41 PM
Hopefully, yeah right, they'll be good.

Matt grey with this sort of evil green glow coming from the armour seams. well thats what I was thinking anyway.

klasnic
19th Aug 2004, 07:13 AM
Okay that's all I need I'll get started in a day or two and let you know what I've come up with ;) A radioactive Virus with boreholes and panels!

BIG thankyou! BTW if you need an avatar I'll be more than happy to give it a shot

klasnic
19th Aug 2004, 07:20 AM
:lol: thanks I have a load of them here but can't be bothered to change it - I'm just lazy! Actually I must change it later - yours is nice mind you :)

[EDIT] The reason I use a robot is because I've given birth to so many of them in 2k4. I feel like their father figure now :lol:

Shadowdevil
19th Aug 2004, 07:27 AM
well thanks!

Edit: Yeah I got heaps of avatars too. I get bored at times and make them.

I think know of the perfect file name for this one.... Swiss Cheese Virus(the holes 'n' all). This should be interesting.

Thanks guys... I wasn't gonna' make it publically available but it did turn out cool I guess...

SaD if you wanna take a look by all means do... But I may do more work on it once I've finished the one I've started now and then submit. I didn't even include a screenshot or anything. Let me know anyways ;)

Aah you never know when your luck might be in - The difference mightn't be noticeable at first but look at his belly and you'll see then I just re-done a bit here and there so it's a bit cleaner looking :)

Darth_Chaos
27th Aug 2004, 12:17 PM
On the subject of bellies... have you noticed that some xan/axon skins have this box in the abdomen that sticks out, its black with wires all over it.

klasnic
28th Aug 2004, 10:33 AM
Yeah I think someone asked me before why it didn't change when he skinned it. Answer? You'd need to put a new animation file with the skin as the wire texture is not part of the actual head/body ;)

Darth_Chaos
28th Aug 2004, 02:48 PM
OH!!! That always annoys me when that happens. Wish people would fix it... oh well.
