EDIT: okay, its practically done for the 'important' people, with some texture fixes.

EDIT 2: download link.
http://www.filefront.com/14272801/Final-fantasy-7-Chibi-reconstruction-Project-initial-release.rar/



Okay, i was just going through the char.lgp as i was working on some models, then on the ID list I have, i noticed the fancy train model cloud model.

so, i whipped this up in about 5-10 mins, and i have to say, i think its a lot better and looks like it belong even if it makes the other people look bad when compared to him! XD

here's some screens showing him compared to the original, normal model and sword model.




(note, both models are the same size and all animations work, its just hard getting them the same size in kimera)

decided on a list of people to redo currently.

Avalanche <the main 9 people <including variant outfits> + biggs, wedge, jesse and Marlene>

Shinra <people in the shinra building in the suits/dresses, Rufus, the president, palmer, Scarlet, hedigar, hojo, the MP grunts, the red guards, Zack, etc>

Nibleheim <Zangan, Tifa's father, Cloud's mother>

Gold Saucer <Dio, people who manage the place>

His eye  :-o

Well it's certainly an improvement (and it's impressive that you did this so quickly). But isn't Apz making a chibi Cloud right now?

Hmmm, if you can do this so quickly, perhaps you could edit all of the field models given a week or so  :-P

I hate to be a bother..
the only version of the hand patch that i can find is

 FF7PC Hand Patch mod v01.6

Is there a more up to date version.. or is this the last of them?
Cause i do prefer the chibi models over the tall ones.

Thanks,
Makubex

For some reason his eye messed up and his mouth seemed to disappear, i kept the head model the precise same as the original.

@ Kudistos
Apz is making a chibi style field model of his custom cloud, and this is just a improvement to the original model, but i just literally used clgd.hrc (which is the model that plays during the train scene) and resize its body parts over the original cloud.

However, in essence we could completely remove any shading from the battle models then move them over the original field files with the precise colours to make them have the same feel to them.

(which i happen to do to cheat when making new people as i just steal the chest from the battle model)

that itself <to do the main party> could take me about a hour. :P


@drfeelgud
I did not install the hand patch, i put hands on it myself.


@Makubex666
No bother, but I do believe thats the latest version of the hand patch, and I do so prefer the original style of models better than the NPC RP styl myself.
<they just look too 'tall'>


@covarr
I didn;t get rid of his mouth, I left the head completely intact when i changed the models, but for some reason, the eye and mouth texture seemed to corrupt or something.


@Hellbringer
Thanks.

the other hand patch looks a little out of place, but they did change several animations so they better suit actual hands, so thats good.


oh, i decided to see how it would look if i did that to Vincent.

<time taken: 12 minutes 37 seconds.>



after i made the pics, i moved the cape against his back, but i am lazy when it comes to making screens.

W-o-W

i love the original Chibis... i just wished they had hands..
and the hand patch i use.. looks really.. bad...
but yours are well made
:D

i really hope you decide to do more...
or show me where you get these hands/ parts (do you make them)
so i can do it myself
xD

there is absolutely no secret as to where I got these, in fact, i explained the entire process needed a few posts ago.

quote...
'Apz is making a chibi style field model of his custom cloud, and this is just a improvement to the original model, but i just literally used clgd.hrc (which is the model that plays during the train scene) and resize its body parts over the original cloud.

that itself <to do the main party> could take me about a hour.'

so these are the exact same models everyone else has, I just resized the battle model over the original chibi model, then recoloured it the colour of the original field file.

and i wager i COULD do the rest of the team considering i did 2/?. :P
(i'll probably do the main people; the playable team, Sephiroth, Rufus, the president, the turks, etc)

No worries, you probably just skimmed my post for what i said back to you. :P

and I most certainly do good work XD

as for zack and the young variants, of course i will! the main people will look postively absurd if their young version was lego and the adult ones weren't! XD

(and that includes the dresses)

Did a take at Aeris.

(i do not accept the 'th')

ignore the lack of hair on the original model, i happened to not have a clean copy of the original model without extracting the char.lgp.




decided on a list of people to redo currently.

Avalanche <the main 9 people <including variant outfits> + biggs, wedge, jesse and Marlene>

Shinra <people in the shinra building in the suits/dresses, Rufus, the president, palmer, Scarlet, hedigar, hojo, the MP grunts, the red guards, Zack, etc>

Nibleheim <Zangan, Tifa's father, Cloud's mother>

Gold Saucer <Dio, people who manage the place>

and some others, it depends on my free time.

For now, I'll just do the MAIN people (just the 9 players, sephy and main shinra members) as i have a few personal mods going.

after i make some mroe progress on the Malachi and Crystal mod, i'll do some more NPCs.

I did however do the MP grunt. <no screens as i'm not at my home comp.> the time it took me was 7 minutes and 51 seconds.  8-)

<it was a simple design, i didn't even need to change the lower legs>

although my only complaint is that the forearms are naturally longer than the triceps, so i had to keep it the same basic sizes to save having to mess around with the HRC structure.

I like the 'vortex pain' it saves me from having to mess around with textures. :P

after all, me and textures go together like a old man and a midget.

<scene of proof>

setting: a old man is sitting on a park bench, staring at a midget sitting a few feet from him.

midget: umm, could you not stare please?

old man: WHERE'S THE REST OF YOU!?

Those are actually quite an improvement over the default ones. I'll be keeping an eye on this, that's for sure  :-)

I'll release when i do the main people and their variant designs so i don't get any people saying 'h3y d00d, you mezzed up teh fazzillious mod, when aye git ta a certain place, they is blocky they are!'

If i 'focus' on the mod, i could have it ready to be released for the playable chars and shinra (and misc people like zack and sephy) tomorrow as when i was testing it, some of the models were slightly messed up on the size of the parts and i want 'fluid' animations and for it to not look like a botch job.

<not to mention fixing the cloud texture bug>

I prefer the Chibis in fact. I don't use PRP (NPC RP)... because quite frankly the models are just too "tall" for the world... its made for Chibi,
and the animations are out of whack... they are realistic bodies with chibi animations... it doesn't look quite right..

When i get good enough at 3D rendering I may make "up to date" Chibis... or try to at least... maybe timu simisu will get to it before me  :wink:
:P

But for now, i am just going to re-learn the basics of modding... my first time through, i skipped to many steps.. and now nothing makes sense..
hahahah.

BTW, if you do release this.. I WILL use it..
so i hope you release it
 :wink:

Because it really is some good work..
 :lol:


I think i should cut back on the smileys... perhaps.. *looks up*
its quite a daunting sight..

Have no fear, these shall be released.

buuuuut, i dont want to spoil your experience for when you first load your game and see the fancy models, so i'll only show the ones with a considerable difference.

such as Tifa!

time taken - 38 minutes and 6 seconds as I happened to do it when talking on msn.
