PostSubject: Making a custom-ish model to use with the CE   Fri Oct 12, 2012 12:28 pm

I'd like to change the default model for male tremere in the following way:
model of NPC brian with vampire teeth and eyes, and possibly vampire skin. working animations would be a plus.
I already know how to edit the txt clan file (in fact, I already did it) but I think some animations are a bit wonky, and I wonder if there was a more intelligent way to do it Smile

any suggetsions?

Not unless you're a Blender-wizard. The npc models just don't have the same animations as the pc ones.

I expected that. no way to attach the model to the existing bones/animations. right?
-even if SOME work, even spellcasting does (tremere). it's only afterwards that it gets a little wonky, and in the Nines in the Park cutscene.

I guess I will have to do with wonky anims. what about that? what am I missing?

People have tried to do something about the Nines cutscene for years. No result as yet. Unless of course they are kept secret in Vienna's vaults...

Sorry, not without looking it up myself. And I'm absolutely not in modding mood right now.

aw I hope you'll remember my thread when you are back in the mood, hopefully soon.
anyway I tried to open the mdl with the VPK file but it's inside an archive, so I have to extract it.
ad after that I need to alter the paths to the various textures, I wonder if VPK tool can do that.

I am starting to think there is no "vampire skin" texture, just a custom texture for the whole body. I guess hands will look different in lockpick then, ah well.

Altering skin paths and filenames is possible with the vpk tools. But you can't add or remove texture files.

so with VPK tool I can set vampire eyes and teeth, since the model has already a texture path for it.
but no new stuff?

so, I extracted the model folder with .mdl and .vtx files. now what do I have to do in order to "make another model" that uses the custom textures I want?

Try this:
http://planet-vampire.net/forum/index.php?topic=6036.msg113287#msg113287
Don't forget this too:
http://planet-vampire.net/forum/index.php?topic=6036.msg113292#msg113292

It at least covers making the model/textures custom, and different from the NPC model. Feel free to ask questions.

However, it does not cover adding fangs, since that requires Blender(though it is do-able, though I wouldn't be one to ask). You would not have to change the teeth texture, since most of the teeth textures in the game are textured with fangs, but it isn't obvious unless the model has them.

Depends. Sometimes I use Suckhead, because that is the logon name on the haven computer. Sometimes it's a reminder of the type of character I intend to play, and sometimes it is just something like test or player.

You may have gone to the old Planet Vampire site. The new one is here.
