Does anybody wanna help me do some? There are a few that can be updated like Malcolm, Brock and Lauren and some who would be easy to skin on the existing models (e.g. the Gen Mo'Kai and Skaarj). I'd like to make a skin pack based on UC2 but I think it would be cool to have lots of skinners working on the pack since there is a lot of talent here :)

If you fancy helping then reply here and I'll PM you with some more details :D

Cheers,

hmm an interesting idea, but the UC2 models are quite different than their UT2k4 counterparts. I'm not sure I see how just skins will do anything for them. I mean sure make brock a Necris.. eh anyway I am interested to hear/see what you have in mind

Yeh, that's a problem I saw from the start. Obviously the skins aren't gonna match their UC2 models EXACTLY, but I've done some research/forward planning and I think the characters I've chosen will transfer quite well to the UT2004 models with a bit of imagination and some minor adjustments. I'll be showing off my first skin tonight at somepoint which will be the Liandri robot "Raptor" using a Gen Mo' Kai model, this will hopefully give you a better idea of the style I'm trying to achieve.

im mad, u forgot ANUBIS...he pwned all in he demo :D

I know, but I've already got 2 Nakhti in the pack: Selket and Apophis. I think 3 would be a bit overkill :p

old_man_funk
5th Apr 2005, 05:04 PM
I had a feeling thats what model you would use for raptor.
I'll be interested to see how it comes out.

And ya know we could just go and annoy epic by remaking their UC2 models for UT2k4 before UC2 gets released. ;)

The Raptor skin is going well, but I may scrap it :\
I'm revising my character choices and will have to decide who can be skinned to a high quality. Some of the characters in UC2 just aren't suited for UT2004 models. The skins that are DEFINATLEY being done are Arclite, Malcolm and Brock.

If you wanna help though, a skin or two would help me A LOT :D

Started work on both Arclite and Malcolm, I'll make a start on Brock soon as well. Both are WIP, Arclite's head is the only bit done and Malcolm's body is about 30% complete. If you want to see what I'm using as references then just ask and I'll post them here too :D

6th Apr 2005, 11:49 PM
heh ok I'm in, now that I found where you were getting those refs.

I'll take Brock and Lauren. :chuckle:
Lauren is going on "ophelia" and brock is going on the necris model from the ECE bonus pack. I figure since its an "official" download more people will have it, so compatability shouldn't be much of an issue.

One more thing: are the wireframe flats available for the ophelia and the ECE bonus pack or am I just going to have to paint over the originals? Either way is fine, I just like having the wires.

Sounds good! I had thought about doing Brock on the Remus model, but that model has been skinned sooooo many times :rolleyes:

I can give you some UV maps for the Ophelia model if you want (the model has been mapped extremley badly though, kudos to you if you can get a good skin onto it), but you I can't get you the Necris one, sorry.

hmm there are way more distortions on this model than I had though. Eh nothing like a challange to improve one's skills.

Anyway Lauren's head is basically done. I'll revisit a few areas before publishing time but I really want to get this body done, and its looking like it might take a while to find and workaround all the distored areas

10th Apr 2005, 09:29 AM

I'll be making a start on Arclite sometime this week as well, I also think we need to talk about how these skins will be released... Do we want a skin pack or does each skinner want to release theirs seperatley?

10th Apr 2005, 05:13 PM
Woo NICE job you guys! Hope they come with good instructions cuz I've never gotten a skin to work in UT2k4 yet lol...

To help you on where your skin files and other files go in unreal tournament 2003/2004 or any unreal engine 2 game.
U.Up.Int files- System folder
Ukx files- Animation folder
Utx files- Textures folder
Uax files- Sound folder
Usx files- Static Meshes folder
Ut2 files- Maps folder
ogg files- Music folder (ogg playable on winamp and when looking at them will come up as a winamp media file)

On topic. Keep up with the good work on the skins. Malcolms skin is impressive and very well organized so far

Very nice idea guys good job, I never searched any info on the characters on UC2 how many are there? the models on the pics you guys display are pretty high poly, skinning them isnt enough cos they are very different from their old ones. Btw can anyone post a pic of all of them? who knows I might give it a shot at one of the characters, at the moment i am making a model and some skins but if you guys need the help oh yeah Ill give it a shot.

Most of the detail can be recreated in the skin, it's only in a few rare cases that new models would be required and even then we could get around it by using our imagination a little (since none of the skins are going to perfect recreations of their UC2 counterparts anyway). As for posting a picture of all the models, there are too many to do that here. You can find all of them in Gamespot's image gallery for the game though. If you want to do one then feel free, but Malcolm, Arclite, Gorge, Sapphire, Brock and Lauren are already being worked on (I think :rolleyes: ).

I have an idea that would work for brock but it would require some model hacking talent, I was thinking take Romulus or Remus's head off the normal model they are on and put it onto the new necris model from the bonus pack then reskin it and boom you have brock

old_man_funk
21st Apr 2005, 12:15 PM
True. But creating your content for a game that's an exact copy of something isn't always worth it. It's uncreative, and you'll never get it EXACTLY the same. A bit of imagination make things a lot easier and adds a bit of originality :D

Miko
21st Apr 2005, 12:18 PM
But i never said you got it exactly. but you do have it closer and it would be easier to get it close and knowing you were able to do such work with two completely different things to get a result of another different thing is sattifing.

Vailias
21st Apr 2005, 02:04 PM
It really depends on if all the little ammo boxes and crap can be taken off of remus via alpha without making holes in the mesh.
I stil like the new necris mesh a bit better. ;)

Edit: Just checked the Remus Mesh, and all the assorted accesories are removeable. :) looks like a winner for brock to me.

Yeh I think so, dunno about the others but I'm still working on it. I've completley finished Malcolm and I'm gonna start Devastation after I do some more non-UC2 skins. Dunno when it'll be released though, since it's just a side-project for most of us...

I'll release it seperatley if none of the other skinners mind not releasing all the skins at once.

I don't know about the others, but Malcolm does ;) :D

old_man_funk
26th Apr 2005, 02:18 PM
This looks extremely excellent, dudes. The malcolm is great and the gorge should be awesome. Not much of a fan of necris but lauren should appeal to necris fans. Looking great but being a skaarj fan I gotta say... were's da love?

I was thinking of doing the Skaarj Torgr, I'm really stuck for what I'll skin next. There are so many cool characters to choose from :D
Here's another screen of Malcolms finished skin btw.

I found some references to the alternate characters in UC2, this means we can have some new characters like Judas (Brock's alt) and Calypso (Sapphire's alt). Some of them will only require new head skins on the main character's body, but some will require the body being edited as well (e.g. Sapphire's alt is a Necris). I'll post my findings when I've got as much as I can, so expect a big update that will add a (hopefully) wide number of choices for more skins.

old_man_funk
2nd May 2005, 10:54 AM
Ok, after a bit of research I've come up with ALL (I think) the alternate characters in UC2. Here are Brock and Sapphire's alt characters:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0803/oldmanfunk/judas.jpg

Judas; Brock's alt. Easy to do, so probably worth including. Only thing that needs done here is skinning the head.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/0803/oldmanfunk/calypso.jpg

Calypso; Sapphire's alt. Not as easy as Judas, but hopefully all that would need to be done is recolouring of the clothing and making the flesh Necris-style with a few tatoos.

Other alternate characters are:

Arclite - Jackhammer (a new head, no body changes)
Szalor - Kraag (a LOT of work involved here, not worth it imho)
Raptor - Syzygy (a LOT of work involved here, not worth it imho)
Torgr - Garek (a new head, no body changes)
Sobek - Apophis (a LOT of work involved here, not worth it imho)
Anubis - Merc Anubis (a LOT of work involved here, but possible)
Lauren - Lilith (not very different from the other female Necris)
Selket - Necris Selket (not very different from the other female Necris)

That's them all, if anybody wants some screens of the alt charatcers then just ask and I'll TRY and get them.

Also:

Vailias if you want a gmail invite I can give you one - this will allow you to post on the Atari boards.

Does anybody think it's worth posting on the official UC2 forum? Maybe for a bit of publicity/the opinions of people who actually play the game?

heh I was going to use Thanni from the ECE bonus pack, but actually Romulus works better.

BTW I think Im going to try my hand at apophis for this pack as well.

oh also if you can could you post, or send me, pics of the alternates? I think it might be cool to have at least for referance. We might be able to do a dual skinpack. Originals and alternates.

He has all those cans and stuff on his chest, plus Thannis already had the clothes design and the body structure. But hey, you're the artist ;)

Just want to let everyone know that I started up the plans to remake Selket. I have her pretty much drawn out on a printed wire mesh of the Diva/Memphis model. Although because the model looks young, Selket might look a little younger, say before the part where Anubis chickens out of the tournament.

A suggestion to Slaughter about Gorge:

I know you've modified some of the original models.
And what I'm trying to say is; put Outlaws hair on Gorge, that way he'll look more like the UC2 Gorge. :)

That is, if any model modifications are allowed in this project.

haven't seen the other ref's have you mutt. :P

By the same token Im not really feeling the anubis vibe achro. Good skin, interesting edit job, but just doesn't feel like the same character. There are too many differences and not enough similarities to te them together. Even the color schemes are different. Grab the anubis wallpaper from LiandriConflict.com and use it as at least a general ref.

Kirin: Not a bad start. Yes the eyes are too big and cartoony. Also There are a lot of referances for selket, see what you can do about her neck decor to bring it closer to the uc2 version. There is a lot of gold inlay.

:) Look forward to seeing all your progress.

Thanks OMF. I'm actually going for more of a stylized look instead of a direct-copy sort of thing. I'm obviously going to have to work around the shape of the model but I'll try to obtain some kind of similarity of the two ...hence the reason why I added "remix" to the filenames of my images. It's more like a remixed version of Selket.

Not much but it's something. I kindda gets confused by her eyes. Should I make her some blue eyes or make the "mask" in one complete piece of purple metal? Or like it is now(looks really bad IMO)?

Brock doesn't have a beard.

~Death Dream~

Actually, in UC2 he does, but it's hardly visible.
I've been silently monitoring these works, and now I feel like saying something. They look great!
Brock is my fav. so far. I wanna see gorge finished, and anubis touched up. Selket looks nice too, besides the hair. I do think you should make the eyes a teeny bit smaller.
On a side note, I do have the game, so if it's possible I can take some pictures of characters in-game if you'd like.

KirinRiotCrash
16th May 2005, 03:50 AM
i believe someone is working on a UC2 weapon pack Miko ;) They have already realeased the Ripjack as a free taste, and damn is it good.

About the Selket, it looks a bit cartoony and out of all the skins in this topic it is the only one I don't like(sorry). The armor is looking good, but the face looks to cartoonish, I know your going for a stylized version, but it still needs to be improved more.
Thanks for pointing that out.

I actually intend to fix up her face before she ships out the door ... I'm not liking her face either. :lol:

EDIT: In addition to fixing up her face, I've been debating wether her hair should be blue like in the promo render (http://www.beyondunreal.com/gallery/albums/uc2art/selket.jpg) or black like in this UE3 render of her: http://www.epicgames.com/index_uc2.html ... what do you guys think? Blue or black? Which ink works the best?

I think it's awesome, but I duno about that other color on the body, where it's supposed to be black. Face is off the hook, and yeah there's also tatoos on his arm

I tried it as all black originally, but then it's juts an unattractive black lump running around on screen... so I added some colour to give it contrast. As for the tattoos, they make his arms look messy and complicated. I might add some simple tattoos later, but I like it as it is just now.

Just want to let you know that I started on Arclite ... nothing worth showing yet but I'm starting on his body instead of his head this time.

Personally, I don't like playing as Arclite ... I'm more of a Gorge person myself but I think this one is going to be fun to skin ... except I can't help but think that the UC2 Arclite is more buff-looking than the UT2003/4 Arclite.

Did you get that email I sent you btw?

24th May 2005, 05:07 PM
Yeah. I did! I'll get you those portraits done as soon as I can. If possible, I'd like the other skinners in the project to send me their skins as well so I could make more presentable portraits. The colour background of the UC2 base portrait will be based on the colour in the promo render unless you say otherwise.

Sobek is a really cool character...anyway, let's see who else may be possible...Raptor would be nice, and Gorge and Arclite are in production, I see.
If I could learn to skin like you all do, I would make sobek. >.<

You know what? I just realized that Raptor is a female robot?

Nah, raptor is a he/she. It says her, but the upper part of the body is maleish. The hips and feet are clearly female.
It was designed to be both, so...:/

Progress on Devastation. I'm slowly moving forward.
I know the head and body is kindda off in it's tones but I'll fix that when I come to that part.

I need some feedback on her stomach. I personally think it turned out nicely afterall and fits ok compared to the UC2 version.

It's a good idea, but I don't like the fact that his skin is photo-sourced...

Well the armor part is from a ref pic i have yes, but if you guys want Ill make one myself, i just want him to be the closest possible to the original, I dont like it being photo sourced eihter but I think it looks nice and thats my objective. :rolleyes:

Ive been out for some days and for what i see the skin from old_man_funk is very good, anyway im gonna keep skinning mine and the photo sourced armor will come off if you guys dont like it the tats and drawings on his armor are a bit hard to copy so this will obviously become a hard task.

Some wips of how it looks now, the head is finished and the body is about 45%.

*kidnaps death child and does some random things to him for making such an exelent skin* I think i like this one better

old_man_funk
25th May 2005, 02:07 PM
I like it DC... but as I said before, there are a lot of distortions in the skin because it's photosourced. The front view highlights this: the 3D model is facing forward but the 2D texture is at a completley different angle. I would suggest trying to skin it yourself, even if you use this skin as a reference and all you're doing is fixing the perspective. It has the potential to be a great skin, but the copy-and-pasted texture really lets it down.

D3@thChild
25th May 2005, 02:20 PM
I distorted it to fit properly but if you dont like it then Ill make my own then ;) .

Wr4ith

Well, do both. I personally think the photo-sourced one will look better-his face and armor look very nice.

Nines
25th May 2005, 03:39 PM
I like DC's face more that OMF's, however, I like OMF's body more, except it's too bright.
The best thing would be to combine them;
Take DC's head and put it on a darkened version of OMF's body.

:)

EDIT: Oh, and OMF's body needs tattoes. It's a must-have!

I've always wanted to know how to pose characters for portraits. Do u have to use maya or some other 3D modelling program? Like on the character in my avatar (I made it myself. like it?) I just used the UnrealEd animations tool and froze an animation, and then printscreened and edited it so on...

I don't but I think you and OMF could collaborate on Brock ... you know! Pick the best of both worlds!

Vailias
25th May 2005, 11:59 PM
Personally I think the armor looks great, ecept for a few distortions on it, it looks good, and closer to the UC2 model anyway. As much as I support the "inspired by" idea, I 'm of the opinion that the skins should be as close to the UC2 types as possible.

KirinRiotCrash

But sure, why not put in all comers who get even close to the mark. I'd like to have the diversity of effort and names in this pack as much as the closeness of the skins to their X-Box counterparts. Its more a community thing that way.

yes the mask was white, as I only have a single referance pic of apophis (as I mentioned), hence why these are all Work In Progress posts.
