Re: VTMB RESKIN WANTED! (need help)
« on: December 27, 2008, 10:39:00 am »
                Hello ALL VTMB FANS, hugs  
 Perhaps some of you can remember me.
 Im the guy who did the mod with the golden weapons
 but unfortunatelly it didnt turn out so well  shame_on_you  
 
 I got now a new project in my mind.
 I want to make a reskinning for the most important parts in Vampire: The Masuqerad Bloodlines.
 I know that here at the forum are soooo many great designers and people
 who can make almost everything possible.
 So want to ask for help in this project.
 
 THE PROJECT:
 - New skins for all pc characters (i mean the vampires here xD)
 - Bug fixing and more quests
 - better skins for npcs and civiliced and so on..
 - a nicer gui menu
 - perhaps some artwork in the game instead of a loading bar
 - enhanced lights for better gloss maps and hightmaps and normal_maps
 and here i got my question to the more skilled modders:
 Is that possible ? i made some normalmaps with cratybump but i couldnt get them into
 the game.
 HERE IS A TUTORIAL for all who are interested now=) :
 http://www.newerth.com/smf/index.php/topic,5824.0.html
 
 well, i mean the people who know about these normalmaps and .mat files know that they
 got a great visual effect:
 http://www.newerth.com/?id=gallery&op=displayImage&image=az3.jpg
 
 and so my question was: is it possible to get those in or not?
 anyways, i go on with my project dream.
 I KNOW THAT HERE AT THIS FORUM ARE THE MOST SKILLED modders Vampire: the masuerade bloodlines
 has every seen. I know what you guys can do and i also know that you love the game as much as I do
 
 Ok, so i started without my lovely glossmaps and here i give you a small preview of what im thinking:
 BRUJAH NORMAL:
 
 |
 BRUJAH AFTER(1):
 
 - added a cross
 - added scars
 - new t-shirt colour
 |
 BRUJAH FINAL (2):
 
 - added bumpmap
 - new lighting
 - added highlights
 |
 ok, i think you all saw that i need more training in it but i think im going into the right direction =)
 I want now to apply to your guys heart and your love to the game:
 Pls help me to get a squad toghter and be in it ofc grin
 and ask if you need help or answer my questions.
 If the normal map thing and the enhanced light isnt possible, then its also no prob.
 would just be a bit sad =((
 Ok here my plan:
 -Get the squad toghter
 -get a work plate
 -fixing bugs (the still existing ones)
 -making the skins and the whole stuff
 -releasing it as the newest patch
 -perhaps it is possible to make something like a bit more quests
 -IM OPEN FOR EVERY IDEA AND IMPROVMENT ADN CRITIK
 
 so, i hope on your help VTMB fans and modders and everybody i welcome from my site
 to help making this become true!
 CU ALL,
 Urs faithfully,
 $hacaR

                Your Project Sounds Absolutely Great I Had the same Idea Some While ago but I Was always Rejected by the forum Members . . . but now I Will Help you as much as i can , right now i am in my midterms but after that im less busy and after February is my summer time which means 100% free . . . Right now wanted to say im 1000% with you ! something is telling me that you and i are going to be best friends in this forum . . . !
 
 do yo use blender for editing the models and photoshop for the textures ?
 im pretty weak in blender but i guess i can help you in the texturing !
 i guess we should change some of the pc models completely !

                ow . . . in my own modifications i change all discipline sounds . . . . to cooler ones . . .! and also some hub sounds, like downtown and Santa Monica !
 
 and the main menu is just too dark + also the saving system is so lame . . . ! the redemption one was 100 times better !

                Well Good luck to both of you and hopefully you get more modders etc interested to make the project smoother and a little quicker.  Will look forward to the release whenever that will be, good luck.

                I had a look at your site, I have also taken the opportunity to download the 2 available downloads, I havent tested them yet however the site looks good and I hope you and alan moraal get some more members to join since no-one else has answered this post yet.  I must say however after looking at your posts here and then your website that I admit you are serious about making some productive changes to the game, we have our unofficial patches to fix the non stop bugs that continue on and on and we have several skins to enjoy and also a closer version to the pen and paper edition of the game, so I'm glad that considering this game is getting old now with no sequel, more and more ppl are showing interest in it, good for you, I wish I could help you out but appart from the obvious text mods and once i added a custom clan to the drop down menu several years ago (dont ask how, now offkorn already tried that and i cant remember) I had a screenshot but after all these years cant remember the post or if i posted it....
 Anyway good luck again with the project and hopefully modders read this and get involved. applause

                yeah, there are some but when you are good with photoshop
 also GIMP2 wont be a prob for you then.
 and for me a big reason was that i dont need a license or
 anything since im just 17yo.
 BTW: ALL WHO WANT TO GO TO MY "SITE" DONT NEED TO BE REGISTERED ANYMORE.

                I can't answer your bumpmap question as I have never saved a texture that included bumpmap info. I will say that VPKTool has a ton of options when you go to convert your files to tth\ttz. Id be very surprised if this game didn't support bumpmaps, but I can't say for certain.
 
 My 2 cents:
 
 1) Stick to skins, textures and sounds. Don't worry about bugs or quests. There are other people working on that already.
 
 2)  Bumpmaps enhance textures. The problem is that if the texture is crap... then you enhance crap. happy  I think upgrading the character model textures is a great idea, but I think you need to take smaller steps. Start by focusing on better textures. ie: Replace the hand drawn blue jean texture with a picture of real blue jeans. Etc... Bumpmaps should be a second priority.
