Gangrel Wolf-like Beast Form
« on: November 17, 2010, 07:19:43 AM »
This is my first time posting here ( I posted a couple times back on planet vampire), but I've lurked around here considerably lol.

I don't know if anyone has done this before, don't recall ever seeing it, though I know I've seen others ask about it.... I discovered the 3ds max script that came with vampEd the other day and decided tonight to whip up a more werewolf-like beast form for the gangrel. Now it's not perfect as we can only edit vertices as many of you probably know, added to that, the model itself seems to have a few defects.. I just used pieces of the werewolf texture to skin this as well, as I am currently slaving over a raptor model for my hl2 mod and therefore don't have time to do a really in-depth skin currently, but.. here it is.

(I uploaded it under the name of Illyria since my usual username was too long)

To install it, just extract the 2 folders in the rar to your "Vampire - Bloodlines\Vampire" folder. Hope people enjoy this.

Ho-ly Crap. Actually, I could see the term, "Holy Shit" being far more fitting. Not to mention a ton of people that will not hesitate to get this.

 Really cool!

 I never play as Gangrel, but just getting to use this model is worth giving it a try. :)

Thank you all for such positive feedback!

Once I've finished my other obligation for another game, I plan to investigate if custom UV maps are possible for Bloodlines, and if they are (and I am currently assuming they are), I plan to make the texture from scratch.. so it all blends together more nicely. If not, I plan to redo the texture anyways lol.

This is quite frankly, pure awesomesauce. Good work! Totally playing as a Gangrel next time I go through Bloodlines now.

Awesome, now i want to continue my remake of the disciplines. This is going to be a perfect "Shape of the Beast" Protean 4 model.

I think it's really good. Here's my criticism:

You should remove the claws at the ends of the fingers. They clip the claw effect given by activation of Protean.

The eyes should be recolored to match with the "red eye" effect given by earlier levels of Protean. The annoying part of the "hunter of night" model is that it doesn't have a separate eye model like the other monsters do.

Other than that it looks very good given the limits of the vertices.

My personal thought: the ears should be bigger and more bat-like.
Let's face it, Humans Are Bastards, and the only reason the Crapsack World we live in has a semblance of civility and law is fear of reprisal.

The eyes is definitely a good idea, I wasn't even thinking of that when I made it. If/when I redo the skin, that will be the first thing changed lol.

The fingers/claws.. I actually left the fingers the same as the original protean form.. I only fattened up the fingers a touch so that wouldn't have affected the protean claws.. I could try to make the finger ends more.. finger shaped and pull them back a bit though.. I will try that either tonight or tomorrow and see how it turns out.

About the ears though, I purposefully made them as most wolf-like and un-bat-like as I could as I didn't care for bats so much lol. If there is interest though, I could try to make another version. Maybe some other ideas for editing the form into something else too... =)

The ears look good to me; keep them wolfy.  In my opinion, the further we get away from that 'Batboy' form the better.  Maybe now I'll actually raise Protean above 4, and not be embarrassed to run around in warform.   :vampsmile:
An honorable man will still do the right thing, even when he knows there is no chance that he will be caught and punished for doing wrong... and even if it costs him dearly.

Do you think I could include your model as part of the next release of Clan Quest Mod? Either way, looks great; good job!

Have you thought of making a werewolf version of the Warform +1 mod? https://www.planetvampire.com/modules/files/view.php?id=469

Sure! Go right ahead, and thanks =)

Hmm well what's the difference in that one? All I can see is someone made a few of the shoulder/back vertices into spikes? I suppose I could make a version of a spiky wolf if that's all that was changed if you want lol.

RaptorRed,

I like the ears the way you have them ALOT better than the bat-like ones, you did excellent work on this model and I wouldn't change a thing on it. The eyes could be red sure, but you already said you were changing those in the re-texture. As far as the Protean 5 claws go, you can remove them in the item_w_claw.txt file so that no models will show and then you won't even see the claws from the Protean effect, which means you can leave his claws just how they are. Of course you would want a second pair of claws for Protean 2-4 so that they will still show up Pre-Warform.

Mind if I use this model for TFN as well?
