Predator/Yaut'ja

Come onnnnn, just look at that Skarjj model, it screams to have a Predator skin. Or for that matter, someone tweak it and make a predator model! I'm a huge fan and I always used the old Pred model in the origonal UT, including voicepack... and I have been on the tips of my toes waiting for someone to make the new pred skin/model. And with the new movie soon to come out, you had better belive its going to be popular. Someone please do me, and everyone else the huge favor of taking this project on... I love 2k4 but I miss my old Predator. o_O!

I looked all over the web, at all the UTk4 Model/Skin sites and by far I think the people here are the most talented and creative. I would want no one else to work on it.

Sincerly,
Yaut'ja

I might be willing to give this a go when my new pack is done. Can you post some quality pics?

I'm totally game for that. Never had the chance to skin anything from scratch before.

Awsome news! Man, its great to know some of the hardcores out there are looking into this. I don't want to flood the thread with images, so I will just link the pages to a few decent pics, and even a great movie clip or two from the up-comming movie that may or may not be publicly assecible. (I'm a dork and I've been keeping up with the movie progress since they started, and got acess to alot of promo's .)

Small, but nicely detailed picture.
http://www.vvinyl.com/toys/mm6/predator.jpg

Kinda shabby on the detail, but a pretty staight up body shot.
http://www.oohyeahzone.com/collectio...y-predator.jpg

A look at the armor styles of different castes... or in our case different skins.
http://home.earthlink.net/~lsiuwai/i...s/predator.jpg

Too small to get much detail out of, but cool none the less.
http://darkstar-sifi.co.uk/images/ac...6/predator.jpg

Head looks silly.. but the details on the gloves, bracers, and ecspecialy the feet is very nice.
http://www.onlyinternet.net/dscreations/PREDATOR.jpg

This is the Heavy (Assault Class) Predator,
Hands are a tad tiny in the picture due to an odd camera angle.. but great quality.
http://www.avp-movie.com/us/flash/wa...vp02/1024.html

Nice image of shoulder armor and sheathed handblades. (Though unrealistic, you should leave them out in the model ~_^. They just look too cool to hide.)
http://www.avp-movie.com/us/flash/wa...vp06/1024.html

GREAT look at the texture of the Mask and the Dreads.
http://www.avp-movie.com/us/flash/wa...vp01/1280.html

Click on English and go to the Trailers and Video's section. The clips withen are a host of Grade A examples and idea's. I very much recomend.
http://www.avp-movie.com/
(70% Chance that site might be down, I think they are changing something.)

Another close up on the Mask, even better quality (ecspecialy on the Dreads)
http://www.killermovies.com/gallery/.../0_poster.html

I'll post more later if I can, a storm is raging outside and if the power flickers after looking for all of this, something is going to get broken. Monitor to Boot action.

Thanks for the intrest, I can't wait to see the results!

Hrmm... The Skaarj models are just so terribly one-way. I suppose it may be possible to work something out, but I'm not sure how convincing it would be. It may end up just looking like a fruity Skaarj. Take the tusks, for instance, they can't be transparent because it leaves holes in the neck. How dumb is that?

Or at least that was my experience. Someone let me know if I'm incorrect.

Oh.. quick few notes on some things for anyone not too familier with them apart from those pictures.

1. The dreads are not usualy flailing in the air like in 90% of those images. Those are action shots and they tend to always do that. Might want to include them bobbing/swaying on the model if you can.

2. Please... Please if your a fan of the upcomming movie, do not use the wierd skullface pred mask for the model. Its .. uhh interesting.. but I and most people I think will prefer the oldschool ones. (Which are also in the movie anyways.)

And a few questions...

1. Is it at all possible to make more than one place a weapon slot? I was thinking the Shock Gun firing from the shoulder mounted cannon would be beyond wicked... but the other weapons firing from that location would seem a bit silly. Can weapon specific slots be made?

2. Is there any way to mod a special invisibility adrenalin so that it looks more pred esq?

Silly, and unimportant questions I know.. but I don't know the limitations of UT2k4 ED and I'm pretty excited.

Ok, thats all again, my friends thunder and lighting outside are telling my its time to powerdown my computer. Later all.. see you tommarow.

Like i said, ive been working on a complete new model....slowly, and its only about 15% done. Its a masked Yaut'ja, with the original style mask. Im not gonna be putting the plasma caster on this model myself, but if and when its finished, ill release the model for people to add and change what they like. But again, its taking a while, so dont hold your breaths lol.
If there are any seasoned modellors out there willing to take on the challenge, please please do, you'll probably do a better job in half the time, and there are plenty of Yaut'ja fans who will be willing to help the skinning etc

Yup.. you can even tell someone in Epic is a fan.. I mean come on.. The Skarrj? Dreadlocks..Giant Wristblades.. splotchy quasi-reptilian skin...tusks... Toss a mask on and lop off the tail and Bwammo... you've got yourself a Pred. Not that I'm denouncig thier creativity... just noting a few resemblances that may or may not be fandom. Either way I think their both great. And rock on Spectre.. I'm lookng foward to it, even if someone else starts another model (the more the merrier) don't drop yours... a clan made entirly of assorted Preds is a wicked scary thought.. and its one I like.

Agreed, i too have definatly noticed the skaarj/yautja resemblance. I remember first playing the original UT ans noticing the resemblance then.
I do think a new model is required tho, and not just a reskinned skaarj, it just wouldnt go right i think. And for those interested there is an AvP mod released for UT04 with Yautja and Xenomorph models, but the Yautja were just a little skrawny for my taste

If your reeeaallyy a dork.. like some of us ^_~ You have read one or all of the three paperback novels on the subject.. Great reads.... I suggest. (Except the second one.. bad writter) It goes into alot of detail about thier culture we never see.. and one of the things they explain is that like we call ourselves Humans, they call themselves Yaut'ja.
