[WIP] Hi Res Sheath

10-16-2003, 12:47 AM
I have been busy with RO recently, and am waiting for 1.1 before I reinstall DoD. But still plan on doing skins when I get some free time.

Saw a release of someone's K98 with a sheath, and decided I'd work on a hi-res version of the sheath. Here's what I've got so far.

JUST THE SHEATH SKIN IS MINE. The wood isn't mine.

isnt the sheath supposed to go over the muzzle to hide the flash? O yah, nice work.

Maybe you missed the point. This isn't a reskin of the K98. It's just a reskin of the sheath. The wood's not mine, nor is the model.

That texture looks too busy to me. I think it's the high contrast, but I'm not crazy about it. I suggest you lighten up the dark parts of the texture a bit.

Edit: Let me clarify a bit, the weave of that cloth is far too wide, you need to tighten it up and remove all the gaps that are now filled with black.

i'm not a big fan of these things to begin with, but this does look pretty good.

..i just state an opinion where i said i think the wood u make would look better than the wood that it have on right now....

Oh. :D

As for the gaps in the cloth, I was thinking of making those transparent to see how that would look.

Nice :)
Some transparent holes would be nice imo, but not loads :O

When the new transparent feature became available i tried to make a transparent sheath, but it looked crap, mind you i made loads of holes in it, so maybe try what [SLHR]Gen says, it will probably look better.

looks good upto now though.

i personally dont like the sheath with patterns in it. it makes the sheath look too busy.

Yea, just where it might have got holes poked in it or ripped :P

Keep up the good work :cool:

imo best looking kar w/scope + sheath i've seen so far, using default atm!
