[FF7PC] ChaOS -Character Overhaul Seven
« on: 2013-01-03 05:38:16 »

The Unshaded Model project has moved to an UM-Modeloverhaul project.
I have started with a simple recolore of the main characters to fit the models Squallff8 has made, but after some practice and the first own recreated model I realized, that I could make even better models. More then half year is gone now since I started this more and more growing project. It was intend as simple character replacement for the field models, but after a while I had learned so much, that I got now possibilities to alter a model in nearly every way I want it. Still Kimera isn't professional 3D editor, it has its limits and sometimes it's hard to work with. However lesser
options make a tool more accessible, so you can learn and master much faster the main functions.

The models I recreate are very close to the original game, however if I see a better interpretation of a model, I use this instead of the original ones (Johnny, Bugenhagen, Lady Cloud are good examples). It depends on, if the design is representing the characters character. Cloud is for example now a bit more pale to represent his sickness.

Unshaded-Models-1.66.0.7z

I'm far away from completing this project, that's why I have made a separate model overhaul made out of the PRP, Squallff8's and diverse other creators models to use it as a base mod to capture every current done model.

I've finished the Turks. I don't know how they will looking in game.  Reno was the only one I've tested.

I spot out some undone characters (EDEA, HPCE, HPIB, HDBB). If I get better in the redoing process, I will see what I could do for them.

I have released my changed models which are necessary for my German reworked project. The different Cloud models share the same p-files,
so if you change one of them, the others should change too. Same by Zack. The new models are not used by the game! They are moder recourse.
New are: Cloud without sword1,Y-Cloud, Y-Cloud holding sword, Zack (with sword on back)1, Zack holding sword.

1 I knew there not really new, but now they have their own hrc.-file.

The normal game used models are in the folders: 'Cloud' and 'ZackWithoutSword'.

The ShinRa management is ready. I put much effort to Scarlett and I'm proud to say she looks much better as before.
I have also updated Reno. His hair was not already colored.

How about some ingame-screens, Kaldarasha? :)
I know for myself that these unshaded models "frighten" people at first but look FAR better ingame.

I made a short test on the ship and found two mistakes I had done. Rufus had the wrong hrc-File and Barret's hip was replaced by the marine outfit, I hope that I fixed it.

Here are some fixed characters.


FIX.rar
I haven't done much to them (except the dolphin), only some resizing.

Also redone Cid.

New in Unshaded-Main-Characters1.2.rar.
I think he was a bit to colore full.

And here is slightly tweaked version of Aerith plus a new model from her without ribbon (done for her death scene as fix).


Aerith.rar


-There are all unshaded, I toggled only the lights on for pictures-

We all know that Aerith looks pretty odd after Sephiroth has took her life.
I will show you how to fix that and how to integrate the new model.
First thing to do: make a backup of flevel.lgp!
Now open flevel.lgp with MakouReaktor search for ancnt3 (1).
Choose Aerith(2), open the Main script and click on Field Model graphic filter... (3)
Change the value(4) that it looks like this.

Do the same for ancnt4. That was it for her eyes and mouth.
Optional: You could copy 'Field Model graphic...' and 'Field Model blink...' and paste it in ancnt1 in Aeriths main script under GameMoment.
The Model:
Back to ancnt3 open Tools, select 'Field Models...' and after the window with the Models appears create a NEW model (it is important not to replace Aerith Model directly. I think that this has made my flevel.lgp useless at the first time while I trying this). The Model we want is 'AUFX.hrc'. Now you have load the animation off Aerith in the same order(!) as in 'AUFF.hrc'. If you ready with this, shift (using the arrows) 'AUFX.hrc' to the second place and 'AUFF.hrc' to to the last place.


Do the same for ancnt4 and blue_2. I think you could delete the unneeded 'AUFF.hrc' at the end of these process. (In lost_2 was it necessary, because Aeriths spirit appears on a tongue of the shell house and watches how Cloud engulf her body in the lake.)

I hope it helps somebody.

So unshaded characters mean they are brighter? If so why would they shade it in the first place if it looks worse as it takes more time to shade it right? kinda confused on the shading aspect

Because no shading looks a bit unnatural and it was about 5-6 years before cel shading (assuming the PS1 could even do it). It was kind of a lose-lose battle if you ask me. They should have spent some time applying textures to characters rather than trying to apply gradients everywhere.

Heheh, looks like the air ship guy is taking a leak in the corner.

I'm working all of these new models into Bootleg.
I've incorporated your suggested flevel modifications as well.

You mention the lost_2 script but don't describe any changes.
Is lost_2 left unmodified?

In lost_2 only the model is changed. You can't see Aerith face anyway, so it doesn't matter if she has closed eyes or not.

If I'm ready with Tifa, I will release a new pack of the main character. Barret and RedXIII are now have there tattoos.
RedXIII legs are fixed, too. (His thighs was to short.)

Tattoos and Tribals


Barret-RedXIII.rar

Because RedXIII took much work today I will release at last the tattooed models of Barret and RedXIII.
RedXIII has now his complete hair and all legs are adjusted (again). I tested him only in the sit and walk animation,
but I'm sure that the other animations would be fine. Nearly forgotten the sit and walk animation are tweaked too.
The 'apelike' Barret model has adjusted shoulders, I hope that will fix his 'flying arms' in some animation.

Major update of the main character is ready. ;D
Contains:
- Cloud 2.0, (in blue and black) he looks now more like in the FMVs
- Tifa ,two versions: one created by me, and the one of Squallff8
- Aerith, (only some fixes)
- Barret, in normal outfit (I fixed the missing texture) and Dynesized
- Red XIII
- Cait Sith, now with legs!
- Cid
- Yuffie, brighter skin color
- Vincent, hope that I fixed a color missmatch of his cape, sometimes changing vertex color does not change the polygon color
- + the different versions of each character (except Red XIII as human and Cloud Wheelchair)
Every character has now fingers.

This has nothing to do with my project, however I got no answer from whiteraven. Until he has not given his OK to take this to his threat, I will release it here. And here is the tweaked version of
whiteraven's APZ Cloud revision.


Kaldy's WR-APZCloud.rar


I changed the head mesh so that he looks older.

Ester, two in Snow Town, one in Wutai and one in the shinra building - maybe more, but that the one I could remember.
