Presenting Scharfshutze Gunther

09-23-2007, 09:03 AM
Hi all,
thought i'd share some of the latest updates for my improved german player model.

Textures are not complete yet & but the model is finished.

This is the sharfshutze, his rank is going to be unteroffizer

As you can see in the screenshots, the uv map is fairly different from the default & ive unmirrored the collar tabs so that others may choose to reskin him realisticly. Ive not bothered unmirroring the arm markings because there isnt enough space on the vtf & id like to keep it about the same size.

obviously ive redone the collar, but ive also changed the shoulder pads by symmetrizing one of them so that they both use the same part of the uv. Ive also modelled the tunic buttons because texturing them looks crap.

I dont know much about weighing etc or if i need to do so, so any advice is welcome.

ok, lod 1 & 2 are done, i have only got to do 2 more because i think i can just use the same model for lod 4 & 5.

Then im onto the m43 field cap which i will probably alter slightly & retexture to match the uniform textures i am using currently.

Any suggestions or hints welcome!

no prob, ive not finished the textures yet anyway, thought id leave tweaks until last.

I also encountered a weird problem, as you know there are model hacks available which allow you to have different skins for each class. The problem is, the german sniper has for some reason been replaced by the rifleman model, so he has loads of packs & utilities strapped to his back.

I have removed a lot of this stuff & left only the spade, the drinks canteen & the lunch box, plus i need to add the pistol holster, which is for some stupid reason, is the luger holster instead of the walter one????????
