OSJC q2 weapon skins even newer update

so the ssg, gl, railgun and bfg have had even further tweaks in this mod:
the pack!
here are previews of the weapons to show you the kinda things that have been improved:







this pack also includes some skins that aren't mine but they're in the pack cos they have minor alterations (glows, extra wartornness etc) and its what I'm using and I think they're nice and should be shared LOL note that the green bfg is indeed intentional... n64 style version (have very fond memories of n64 q2 dm...)
please let me know what you think folks!

enjoy!

Looks good osjclatchford.

But now you should turn towards Quake 1 assets instead of Quake 2
This forum will not give you too much Quake 2 feedback, as it is called quakeone.com.

Anyhow, keep up the good work !

Beautiful work osj, about feedback, yesterday on a Facebook group me and some guys talked about quake2 source ports and stuff, can I post a link to this thread so more people can enjoy your works? Anyway osk, I've made a version of you weapons edits for Quake2XP, only changed the name to .pak2 so it will overwrite the old .pak2 to enable the weapons in Q2XP, here's the link https://www.dropbox.com/s/w0gxe22v2k...ke2XP.zip?dl=0

thanks muchly to you. how lovely everyone is here on quakeone!

as for the facebook idea, that would be outstanding of you! I am not on facebook and as such would not be able to share it there. also thanks for the quakexp version. will help less-technical potential users get more use from it. I imagine q2evolved is somewhat outdated nowadays?

Yes, is outdated unfortunately. Most used source ports are KMQuake2, Quake2xp and berserker, since i have all of them installed, I try to make it compatible for every one of them.

prox... for new grenadelauncher model

proxlauncher




intended for the rogue mission pack... couldn't get this to work on q2evolved. perhaps you'll have better luck with one of the other engines?

Hi, new guy here. Not new to Quake2 though. I've been pretty much the holy terror of the forums over at Tastyspleen.net for many years. Dunno if anyone's ever heard of it, but Tastyspleen's Q2 community is basically the #1 destination for playing Quake2 in North America.

Anyway, as far as simply finding a PAK file that will add hi-res skins for the stock weapon models... none really exist, at least as far as anyone in the Tastyspleen community knows of. A reasonably skilled person maybe could simply make larger hi-res textures for the stock weapon models, but I don't know how much success they'd have with it. I'm somewhat of a half-assed Q2 "modder" myself, and I've done lots of work with weapon and item skins. The problem would probably come in how some of the stock models are texture mapped. Many of them have skewed looking texture images because the mapping onto the models is skewed as well. At one point, I took a few of the stock powerup models and attempted to completely redo the skins from scratch to make them hi-res whilst retaining the look of the original. Here's some shots of a few things I did...









I play quite a bit of Q2 multiplayer, so the client I'm using in all these screens is R1Q2, which isn't as fancy with lighting and blood effects as EGL, but it runs nice and fast. Anyway, these are the only stock models I've attempted to competently reskin as hi-res. It was NOT easy. It involved completely remapping the entire models texture to a new layout and then saving it. So it's the exact same wireframe model, just with a completely different texture mapping.

HOWEVER...

There might be a few high res model PAK's floating around out there in internet land. Indeed, I've located one in particular, and I've used parts of it in my own personal player PAK's that I make and post up from time to time. But just so no one possibly makes the same mistake that I did... maybe check with someone before you decide to repost any hi-res weapon/item/ammo PAK you might've found. There's a set of models floating around out there which were unintentionally leaked into public circulation and are the property of Wirehead Studios who has been working on a project called Generations Arena. It's some project that's supposed to combine several of the original id games all into one game... or something. Anyway, the story is that some of the leaked content is what got them in trouble at one point for copyright issues because they took parts of it directly from other games rather than using new original content. A few of my personal player paks featured some of the original content portions of said leaked pak. Eventually the main guy at Wirehead stumbled upon my personal homepage where the items are posted, and he sent me a "Dude,... WTF!?!" email. We worked it out, he liked my work, he let me keep it up with a disclaimer and permission, the end.

Anyway, just be warned. If you happen upon a hi-res model pak for Q2 out there, do a little investigating before reposting it. Getting sued sucks.
