Well I tried using the instructions from this post but failed miserably, because first of all I kept getting an error which said "Python is not installed" (or something to that effect) and importing models into it didn't work. I'm not sure if those instructions are outdated or I just did something wrong, but I must emphasize I really know nothing about Blender, from installing to using it. :/
Have you installed needed version of Phyton first? It seems like the python error to me.

I did, that old version linked in the thread, although I installed it after the program. Does it matter which order they are installed in? For that matter, must Python be installed in a specific place for it to work? I couldn't figure that out.

Dunno for sure, but try to install python first. Mine installed on C drive and blender on E drive, so I'm not sure that installation path matters.

I will look into it, thanks!  :smile:


Meanwhile, the Dancers retexture pack is finally finished!  :clap:

I know everyone's pumped for Bloodlines 2, but we still have a year to wait so in the meantime, I've been working on a Brujah set based on Julius. I think he makes a good Brujah, and there's little enough stuff for them out there.

I just have Armor0 done for now:

One suggestion: more beard. (And maybe change the face too)

Change the face...how?

But yeah I might play with the beard some more. Frankly I am not a fan of beards, but in this case I'll try something.  :justabite:

Changing faces is a bit tricky but gives many satisfactions. On you photoediting program make a copy of the texture, cancel everything exept the nostrils, the eyes and the lips and color those of a bright color. That is the guideline for the new face. Find another face texture, place between the two textures and adapt it to the different proportions. Now line up the lineaments of the new face to the guideline ones. Cut out the area used by the hairs in the original texture and add some touches if necessary

Remember my true brujah? His face come for Zhao

Regarding the beard, was more a joke but it think if it's done good it may be enough to make him not look as Julius

No, I didn't mean the technical part, I meant how you think I should change his face apart from the beard. I do take your point he looks a bit too much like Julius, and that beard is a bit scruffy, so I will try to improve it. And maybe do something about his eyebrows too.

Pick a non-vampire face. Once paler and on different models than the original some look different (for example still that true brujah)

Maybe changing his face shape will do the trick?

I think a beard is the quickest solution, but all there are good too.

Yeah I think the beard is the best bet here (although maybe a nice subtle scar too!). I actually like his base texture, it's pretty detailed as textures in this game go, and I already modified it a bit to eliminate some seams and such. But I might add a few more things like more defined cheekbones or something. I don't want him to look exactly like Julius but I don't want to change him too much either because I like his look.

I think I'll leave the more complex 3D modelling to those who are good at that.  :razz:

Hopefully I'll have some time over the weekend to try out some of these ideas.

Brujah guy update



I changed quite a few things about his face: the beard, the eyebrows, lips, nose, undereye detail...so hopefully he looks a little less like Julius now.
