[Skin]Colt Grim Reaper Skin V1.0
10-23-2006, 06:21 PM
This is my first attempt at skinning because of an awesome idea given to me by my dad. Years ago, we saw grim reaper grips for a .45 and so i finally decided to make one for DOD:S and to put stuff on the gun itself. The result is this bad boy. Please leave any comments you would like to share as i need suggestions for V2.0!!

::CREDITS:: Model: Valve
Recolor, design: AGENT 47
Please don't "steal"/modify my ideas/creations, if you do make a skin which you made from my idea/creation just put that in the credits.

This is Iono's newer model which has been slightly hacked with
a longer & taller body & grip. This was created with the original
file to retain the model consistency that has been mangled in many
of its' previous hack attempts. Three skin variations have been
produced with original interchangeable grips to complete the release.
Compile - Yamantaka
Body - Iono & Wannabe & Yamantaka
Mag - Iono & Foxmike & Yamantaka
Grips - Yamantaka
Round - Stoke & Yamantaka
Animations - Quad & Stoke

You didn't credit ANY of the original authors and then you say "Don't steal from me"... The model isn't even Valves...it's Iono's.
In short your credits are a joke, not to mention the fact that you have axis sleeves on an allied-only weapon and the hands are messed up something horrible.

he is right agent. Blatant disregard for the work. Someone should write a Custom release edicate thread....

Ok, lets have everyone calm down for a minute, i think i have traced the problem. I downloaded the base skin from filefront, the black MESH1 MESH2 MESH3 and MESH4 and grips with animation sequences. I then recolored the MESH's with photoshop to make it appear stainless steel, not knowing that there was already one in existence. When i downloaded that file from filefront, the only thing in the readme was credits to the modeler, VALVE, (but i guess thats not true:( )
I AM TERRIBLY SORRY IF I STEPPED ON ANYONE'S TOES AND DISINCLUDED THEM IN THE CREDITS THAT RIGHTFULLY BELONG TO THEM!!!!!!!!!I WILL CHANGE THE CREDITS IMMEDIATLEY TO THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY DESIGNED THE BASE SKIN!!!!!
Now, that this is cleared up, lets try to put this all behind us and continue on with life. I hope that everyone that i accidentily disincluded in the credits will forgive me for this seemingly unforgivable error. This whole thing was a big misunderstanding and i am again sorry.
(as for the sleeves, when i downloaded those from "strategyinformer" i put them in the wrong file, the hands are messed up in the screenshot because i took it when i was reloading to show the slide ;) )

I think most everybody accepts that you sincerely did not intentionally exclude credit to anyone after you gave your explanation.
That said, I hope you realize that Guyver wasn't giving you a hard time at all. Almost anyone in these forums, me included, would have written a similar response if we had recognized the original work.
While it is true I think it's hilarious to bother to "credit Valve" (like, just who doesn't know where the default materials were created?) crediting work done other third parties is extremely important. For instance, since I had NOT seen the original works that used, I would have completely assumed all of this was your work since there is no external credits provided. In the cases that you do not know who the original author is (which happens now and then), at least put in a disclaimer stating what parts are not yours and that you will be happy to credit the original author when it is made known to you. I had to do this with my own soundpack. But never, for any reason, include work that is not your own and not bother to mention it. On almost any skinning/modification website or forum people (like me) will flay someone alive doing that.
Anyway, hope this hasn't soured you too much and it'll just be filed under "live and learn" ;)

Thank you very much Wile E. Coyote, for your insight and instruction with this matter. I dont think that Guyver was giving me a hard time, because if is saw someone taking credit for someone else's work, I'd be pretty pissed off too. But again, i am sorry for this error, and I pray that something like this will never happen again with someone else. I've learned my lesson and I look forward to more posts from this wonderful community!:)
