  • What kind of Quake player model do you want?

    As the topic reads

    I struck a deal with Solecord not too long ago to make a new player model for Qauke. I'm nearly finished doing the dog model for Mother, so it's time to start thinking about this. Any suggestions?

    I'm looking for:

    - poly count
    - texture size
    - skin ideas
    - animations
    etc, etc

    Also, I think it would be best just todo the basic texture map, because normal mapping takes a lot of time and my PC isnt exactly up to it. Let me know what you guys want!

      I'd prefer one that looks nothing like the original Quake guy at all but looks like he could exist in a Quake-like universe.

      In my humble opinion, I believe there have been too many faithful remakes and not enough imagination. People like engines like Qrack and DarkPlaces and, say, Rygel's texture pack not because they look like original Quake but because they don't!

      Just one opinion. I think diversity is a lot more interesting than sameness.

      Animations: hmmm. The usual plus a duck animation would be nice. Maybe a sitting one so he could be put in a chair reading the Quake guy manual (or for use in a vehicle someday somehow)

      Quakeone.com - Being exactly one-half good and one-half evil has advantages. When a portal opens to the antimatter universe, my opposite is just me with a goatee.

      So while you guys all have to fight your anti-matter counterparts, me and my evil twin will be drinking a beer laughing at you guys ...

        Like Baker said, "more diversity."

        I'd like to see Ragdoll physics

        Maybe a more futuristic looking Quake guy but still annoyingly gritty and obvious use of steroids.

          I agree with Baker. Imagine another standard male model. Maybe a set without the weapons, for vwep support later on. Both md3 and an MDL format if possible. Or something that looks like a robot

            Ok, so like this:

            - needs to be original and diverse
            - needs to be both md3 and .mdl
            - needs to have an additional "duck", "read" and "poop" animations (strike the last one)
            - needs to have inverse-kinetmatic based rag doll animations

            yeah, shouldnt be too hard. I'm gonna get sketching on some ideas soon.

                      that looks cool. I've been gathering a lot of inspirational sources for the model.

                        Sweet, dont make a robot, we need a new humanoid male 1st.One that can become a standard. Then if you wanted you could make an army of robots

                          I have a really well done chick mod. She looks fantastic but the accompaning sounds are some of the most annoying I have ever heard. I had to stop using the skin because I couldn't stand to hear the sounds of her screaming and grunting. I am glad the creator (forgot who sorry) thought to change the sounds so the female skin was more realistic, but I just wish that hadn't used such an annoying voice to do it.

                          So, my vote goes for a chick skin that doesn't make me want to jab white-hot pokers into my ears.
