how does the esthar's gun shoot? same as a gunblade or like cervantes' from soul caliber?
Once I download Poser, I was planning on making a balck mage (just got FF 1&2 for GBA).
does this look anything like an esthar soldier? its just a lightly modified version of the dude i'm making over on the 40k thread.
Yeah, that's pretty good there Quinzy! Maybe make is arms and legs a little thicker, though.... As for how the gun is incorporated, if you look closely at the preview, you'll see that right above the handle of the Pick-axe thinky is what looks like a square think with three or four tubes in it. That is the gun part. Basically, when they shoot the gun, they hold the pick handle vertically (so that the pickaxe blades are facing fore and aft), and shoot it like that... A truly bizarre weapon, however some Japanese Officer had such a configuration with his Nanbu Pistol forming the hilt of his samurai sword, so that he held the pistol grip and shot the pistol the, without changing his grip would be able to slash and stab with the blade (I saw this in one of my Guns of the World books under combined arms/oddities).
Odin, Glad to hear that... If you register at Renderosity.com (which is free, BTW), then go to their free stuff section, they have a pointy witch/wizard hat in their free stuff section, IIRC....
thank you hikaro, i'll thicken him up a bit soon.
so the blade isn't like leon's gunblade, its like cervante's blade? cool, i'll get on it tomorrow
Thanks for the Help, Quinn!
Hey, I've been trying to make that black mage, but Poser just pisses me off. Anyhoo, I would like to have a poofy shirt prop for the paperdoll, since Kinboat's shirt and Utah's shirts are in .cr2 format (I hate .cr2, it doesn't even work right how come all props can't be .pp2, .) and as I just complained, I HATE .cr2 format, as it is unusable. I made a kind of crappy hat, but if you have anything similar I could use/modify I would be really grateful. Hell, I'd be grateful for any props/advice you could share, . (maybe a rope belt?)
search on turbosquid for "hat" and you'll find some free mage hats.
Regitster (free) at Renderosity.com and search their free pages.... THey have at least two or three witch/wizard hats there... One of which has morphs and two material zones (so that it could be used for other things as well).
I looked at turbosquid, and I found a pointy hat. I tried making it more old and not so plastic and pointy, but it came weird. I downloaded a hat for Aiko on renderosity... I'll try modifying that.
I`d be totally sweet if Quinzy converted a BM like he did with his fighter (sword-chucks! YO!) unit. I know I`d use that one, cos of the sentimental value. I hope I`ll be reading that comic when I`m 70
Sorry Odin, not trying to bash your efforts, I`d have a use for a less cartoonish version too
Yeah, I'm making it more realistic and evilish, based off of this picture:
Knew it! I think it will turn out to be a cool unit, but he`s not the fat, stinky BM I know and love!
there IS a chance i'll do a BM i suppose. i'll see if i can find sprites etc
Storm, I have a Fighter with Sword-Chucks, YO! UU planned for the Light warriors... THing is I've got a ton of flavor and other units to do before I get to him, and not near enough time to get this stuff done anytime soon.
Yeah, Hikaro, I know, and I bet it`ll be cool. I`m not saying I`ll use the Fighter Sprite unit, or a Fighter Fanta unit for that matter , but I think I`d use BM. He is the Lord & Master, right after Foamy
Okay, ladies and gentlemen, I've started adding pics of all the buildings (by category) to the first post in the thread. The buildings come with helpful icons and other notes. I'll only show 1 era of multi-era buildings,but all versions of a multi-CG building.
Posted the Happiness improvements as well as updated the Scientific list to show that Alchemist's Shops require Hot Springs and Saltpeter.
I can't wait for this to come out!
neither can I.
I can see you guys have done quite alot sinnce last I looked at this site.
Keep up the good work!
Alas, I have already moved on to Civ 4, and this mod is actually the ONLY thing that would make me reinstall Civ 3, so I hope it will be done sometime soon (but take your time, I do prefer quality instead of speed. )
