Pirate Fortress - Medic by BradersVal Pirate Fortress - Medic by BradersVal
Sorry i havnt posted any progress in a while, iv'e been struggling to find any time for myself recently

The Medic was a bit of a pain in the arse to get right. The model seems like its either from a previous range of character models that didnt need updating or it could have something to do with the extra polys in the backpack possibly blowing the budget for older spec machines. The textures have considerably more detail painted in as opposed to modelled creases that the lighting engine can pick out.

This lead me to keep revising the contrast of the detail in the textures to the point where it was driving me nuts. The final gather has washed it out a bit in the renders but hopefully it will look ok once its in the game engine.

I decided in the end (after countless models) to go with a barreled rum dispenser for a piratey medipack

EDIT; Inspiration for this remodel is from Fenomena's amazing Pirate Fortress 2 pic [link]
sorry Fen i thought i had covered it in this wall of text somewhere :)

The spy will be one of the last ones i do as there is a problem with the sourceSDK Maya file for the original. It nothing major, i just cant be bothered to sort it out just yet :P

this looks really awesome! is it all diffuse maps or do you have bits of bump/normals?

They're just diffuse maps. From the models i got from source sdk; it looks like they only use diffuse with occlusion baked straight onto the texture, and any specular is done within the shader. if i come accross any specular/bump/normal maps when importing them into the engine i'll create some for the models ^^

aye, theres a few places, especially with the ideas for the weapon models, where i want to add aditional particle effects. If its anything like our engine then stuff like that will be done within Hammer. I'll have to cross that bridge when i come to it ^^

LOVING the idea for the medpack and how close you kept things like the unkempt hair and his darker beard!

Could you please add a link to my picture in your description? Thank you!

sorry about that, fixed it now :D

i'll see about getting his maniacal grin as the default expression but it might give him a death's-head smile when other blendshapes are used for speech... which would add even more awesomesauce!!

haha oh god that would look so creepy! I like that idea though, I bet it would be funny to see him talk like that.

and no problem!

btw, will the mod use a default hud? Just curious

Love it, love it, LOVE IT! Looking forwards to seeing the finished result, but will we be able to download this and perhaps use it as our playermodels?
