Vincent Valentine
Ready to be ported!

Merged all the textures into one. The cape isn't as high quality compared to the  old pictures in terms of lines and folds within the cape. But i rather use 1 texture file in-comparison to 6.
I did upscale the face texture and redrew the eyes however. I think this is a good compromise, the cape was too detailed compared to the other characters anyway.

So do you like the new Vincent compared to my old release? :D

And to be honest, with the model I used my own face as reference in some areas. Since i have a diamond head shape. Also to experiment what eyebrow expression I could add to the model. haha so for those who think this "Zack" looks weird in certain angles, that explains it. ha

Okay! It's ported into the game!
Only made the main field model so far. This will be an beta release. I do plan to do the rest of the main characters eventually! :)

Download includes a non shaded npc and a shaded one. Keep in mind, it's not the finished product.
Oh and he can also blink!  :-D

Nice to see ya around man  ;) I like your concept. Keep everything visually the same across the whole game experience (Nomura was obsessed with that for FFX because it bothered him on FFVII and FFVIII)


Say...

If you'd start a thread spelling out how to get the field models to blink... I'm sure you'd make allot of folks around here happy. Even if it's just a numbered text list, because I've completely forgotten... I remember finding the simple instructions somewhere here on the forum by searching but it wasn't easy. I made a proto-type APZ Cloud chibi field model and got him to blink... that that was years ago and those files are gone.

8) I understand if it's asking too much, but it'd help.
Title: Re: [WIP] Simple Cloud Model inspired by fmv Beta Release!
Post by: Shankifer on 2012-08-23 10:56:32
I think this would be the Ideal model-style to go for... I actually really like the way he pretty much fits in with the FMV Cloud.

Great idea!
Very nice model!
Title: Re: [WIP] Simple Cloud Model inspired by fmv Beta Release!
Post by: omega res novae on 2012-08-23 11:38:36
to get him to blink dont you just add a second head and texture it so eyes are closed.

great job though. i like the idea. if you need help with any grunt work let me know
Title: Re: [WIP] Simple Cloud Model inspired by fmv Beta Release!
Post by: weeemus on 2012-08-23 14:02:55
@apz

Haha, I was the same though. It's been years since I made any mods. I literally forgot how to make the model blink and port models. So I referred back to my own tutorials on this forum that I did awhile back when I was in high school. Thank god that qhimm keeps old threads. Surprisingly all my tutorials are still here, just that it's scattered everywhere. Anyway thanks!

Method 1

So from memory there was a proper way of doing this with Pcreator via texture Id. Let's use Tifa for an example.
The head model AAHB.p consists of 3 groups.

- Group 0 Is the head.p
- Group 1 is eyes plane
- Group 2 is the mouth plane

AAHA.rsd corresponds to AAHB and when you open it in notepad, you will have:

@RSD940102
PLY=AAHB.PLY
MAT=AAHB.MAT
GRP=AAHB.GRP
NTEX=2
TEX[0]=AAHC.TIM
TEX[1]=AAHE.TIM

The Ntex is the total number of textures and 0 is the eye texture. 1 is the mouth texture. So as long as you set it up the same way as the original, you will be able to blink correctly. So create a new line TEX[2]=custom.TIM name it whatever you named your tex file as and that will be the texture for the actual head.

So have your head model with eyes textured underneath and a plane overlapping it with the same texture file but umv to another area of it, ie closed eyes texture.

In Pcreator, change the field ID In relation to to the groups mentioned above.

Method 2

1. Import the plane for the eyes into kimera first and edit it's rsd properties.
Which is ntex=1 and the name of your tex file.


Found a Faster way with Kimera. Import eyes plane go to texture options > change texture

2. Add part to the bone ( So the head.p )
eg cloud is aaba.p and after attaching, a new file should be created within the folder named aaba1.p.
Edit the rsd properties.


Add Bone to part and go to texture options > add texture

Done!

I hope this helped!

Let's get this straight.  Kula didn't make ANYTHING you see in "his" AC Mod.  He took Namespoofer's AC Mod and simply redistributed it claiming it to be his own.  Later he joined a small community that had strict rules to only share imported models amongst themselves, and then stole some of those and once again claimed it to be "his" AC Mod.  He then proceeded to burn it all to a DVD (including things like Aali's driver and other mods found here at qhimm) along with an installer and SELL IT to people.


So please, let's stop this ridiculous Kula Wende worship, he has contributed NOTHING to the community other than taking other peoples work and making a profit off of it.  In most countries he would be considered a criminal.

It's nice to see someone attempting this. It'll certainly mesh well with the FMVs, and maybe can even be converted to battle.

This mod is a great idea and has me genuinely excited. I would love to have field and battle models to match the FMV's. With Omzy's field pack, DLPB's Mods, the Reanimation and FPS mods, the entire game can be upgraded and still look consistent throughout.



@weeemus - Hello @weeemus, could you please consider making a version of Cloud Strife with the Buster Sword sheathed on his back? I love @Grimmy's version of Cloud Strife field model.

You do realize this is an extremely easy thing to do right? Just open the desired sword model, in this case the buster sword in kimera, resize it down to be within reason of a field model and save as a field model, open the Cloud field model, add a part to the torso of Cloud (The resized buster sword model) and finish resizing and positioning. Done.

My only problem with those models is when he sits down or lays down the sword goes through everything, not to mention as soon as you get a new sword the buster sword doesn't make sense. I guess it's a matter of which is more believable to you, that Cloud can pull a sword out of nowhere or that he can sit, lay, roll, etc. with the buster sword on his back.

Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2012-08-29 19:47:08
That sit, lay, roll thing is why I don't use the field model with sword. It's kind of neat at the beginning of the game, but quickly loses itself. Also, you don't ever see the other main characters carrying their weapons.

Hello @StickySock,
 I would like to inform you that the first time I saw Final Fantasy VII, it was on a small screen on the back of a chair in a vehicle. Due to this, I thought Cloud's Field Model had a Buster Sword on his back. Of course, I was obviously hallucinating. However, that memory has left an impression on me ever since then. I do agree with everything you said, yet my preference is something I hold with high regard. I can't seem to get anything to work in Kimera, because I am too lazy to figure it out. @Weeemus made an excellent Buster Sword Model that looks great.

EDIT: I have always wanted to see someone make it so that the field models had their different weapons equipped at different times. I understand that this is pointless due to the fact that one would have to recreate the char.lgp for each individual weapon for each character. However, I still think it would be awesome if Cloud Strife could have the Ultima Sword on his back as Field and World Map Models.

To replace any models you only need to use ulgp 0.5 or Aalis original lgp tool (use the search and look through the results there are plenty of tutorials) if you know how to use command line. I think that in the new bootleg (0040) all of these models will be supported.

Unfortunately I do get rather busy at times, So it may take a few days or perhaps weeks for a model to be completed, Unless it happens to be a weekend and I happen to be free of my freelance jobs, I can finish a model in a day  :)

In a day? Do you have to be extremely skilled to do that for models similar to yours? I'm just curious to the amount of skills and practice actually needed.

Oh no I do it the cheap way. Let's say I made an arm and leg once. I would use that for the rest of the characters but remodel it and morph it to how i want it to look and ofcourse by adding new faces for certain areas ie sephiroths shoulder armor or Cid's jacket has a picture on the side of his arm. It get's results and done quicker!
So alot of slicing and cutting and then mesh smooth  modifier ( when necessary ) and remove the unnecessary faces/vertices by wielding the vertices together  :mrgreen:

As for the head, i would use the original battle model in the back as reference and create the head by constructing planes ontop of it if that makes sense? lol

In other words, I'm not as skilled as how you think i am. But thanks!  :)

Thanks!
Baby Fantasy was just a testy with hrc resizer at 70% with SD checked.  :D
You can change it with that after my release of the full size models. For me I think it's still not baby enough lol I would remodel it abit if i were to actually port it as a true retro chibi character.

Anyway updated the screenshot of Sephiroth! His body is complete! What's left to do is his head, hair and texture + uv mapping

Keep in mind, this is still a "WIP" thread and ontop of everything else, this is a solo task and I don't have all the time in the world. So be patient  ;)
So my priorities is to get as many models done first. Considering the porting and transferring doesn't take too long. Where as i want to be more proactive with the limited time i have.

If I may say, @EQ2Alyza, she is only disproportional in the FMVs and in fan art. The original artwork by Tetsuya Nomura shows her correctly proportioned. I think @weeemus should use Tetsuya's version as a reference.
I understand what were you were saying, and I totally agree.

@weeemus - Sephiroth by the way looks correct. Thank you for you hard work.

That is actually very easy to do is well. Since he already made a model for sephiroth, it comes down to renaming the model parts for the sephiroth he made to the model parts of those sephiroths, and replace them. It's brainless work that he doesn't need to spend his time on. He should just continue making new stuff so if (when really) his life becomes too busy or he loses interest you'll have all or as much of the assets to finish the project yourself.

For example:

He would need to complete these or we'd end up using PRP for these models instead -
Cloud - 13 Years Old (enab)
Cloud - 8 Years Old (buge)
Cloud - Soldier (ekbf)
Cloud - Soldier Helmet (eihd)
Cloud - Woman (dlfb)

But these would be easy enough to complete without him since they are identical -
Cloud - Wheel Chair (htje)
Cloud - Bike (brib)
Cloud - Parachute (afie)

Which hair?
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y106/wushuboi/comparison.jpg)

Which one is more preferable? I don't want this Zack to look like the one in CC, AC, or any of the new ff's. I can't find any references of Zack apart from the extremely blurry photograph, which isn't much help lol. At the moment, I'm feeling like i should just remodel the whole thing! Looks pretty crap through my eyes, and not to my standards >:( (Especially his face)

Post by: Wolke on 2012-09-08 13:53:02
Keep the shorter hair, it's more distinct. Longer hair makes him look like a black haired cloud.

He also needs some stubble.
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] FMV Inspired MOD, All Main Characters
Post by: obesebear on 2012-09-08 14:10:48
Yeah, the face isn't the best, but it is distinct from Cloud's, which is good.  The longer hair is much more reminiscent of how he looks in all the new FMVs like AC, but both look pretty good.

Take a look at these (https://www.google.gr/search?q=Zack+fair&hl=el&safe=off&client=firefox-a&hs=ME7&rls=org.mozilla:el:official&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=XZtLULLDF_Dc4QSGpYEQ&ved=0CAoQ_AUoAQ&biw=683&bih=333). Careful with the angles in his face. Jaw is a little more flat. It would be nice if you "sweeten" him up a little. His hair have volume and are long up to his neck as he appears in Crisis Core (https://encrypted-tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRgRY4IAWJiEljQkGgO7jw7BZvUW8nuQRqgnSMgscOa9F6RCjXodA).

Thanks for the reference pictures. In the end I decided to just base him off CC and Re-modify him to my tastes, which that will blend with the other characters.
Constructed a new face and hair! Screenshots are up. Keeping him simplistic (Explains the low poly nose, which is pretty much a triangle)

Edit: He is complete and ready to be ported!

And to be honest, with the model I used my own face as reference in some areas. Since i have a diamond head shape. Also to experiment what eyebrow expression I could add to the model. haha so for those who think this "Zack" looks weird in certain angles, that explains it. ha

you might want to talk to Omega ( I forgot the rest of his nick ) that does the Knights of Midgar KOTR mod and see if he can't use some of your models.

Hes letting me use them as he finishes them. Hes letting me use cid right now because there arent any other models. And cloud cuz he just finished the battle models.

Vincent Re-texture
(http://imageshack.us/a/img267/3840/vin2.jpg)
I decided to re-texture him. So far I've only done the cape. Ideally I wanted the extremely simplistic look, but at the same time I thought, I could add a little more detail. Considering it took 2 minutes literally to draw the texture for the old Vincent. Whilst now I'm spending 10 minutes on the texture! :D 
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] FMV Inspired MOD, All Main Characters
Post by: EQ2Alyza on 2012-09-15 03:08:21
10mins?

You need to make a tutorial for that. Share the greatness  ;)
Title: Re: [WIP/REL] FMV Inspired MOD, All Main Characters
Post by: weeemus on 2012-09-15 03:22:12
Ha sure, when I have the time, I'll make a tutorial! Keep in mind 10 minutes since it's a simplistic texture!
Usually it would take a lot longer if we were to produce quality textures  :)

But a quick summary.

Umv unwrap - cylindrical - reset - fit
Wield selected
Pack uv's - Linear packing
Render umv template
export selected part
Import as new 3d layer in photoshop cs4 extended
Add details with the brush tool! done!

I only recently discovered the 3D import since I didn't have extended version at the time. And my god It is amazing! Saves so much time compared to how I used to draw my textures.

Edit:

Rather than completing my re-texture of Vincent. I've been procrastinating and experimenting with a few things. Such as this Cell-shaded Vincent! :D

 you can make an image with all the textures parts with gimp or photoshop and make a new uv coordination into blender with the new image you made before import. Sorry for my bad english i'm french.

Post by: StickySock on 2012-09-15 17:49:17
First off, Vincent's hair looks 100x better now, just as the improvement on Zack's hair was tremendous. You genuinely excite me to look at the progress you make on this mod because of how good the idea is and the quality of execution.

My main concern is that you don't burn yourself out, so when you start looking into different higher-res textures I hope you will stay with methods that won't take a ridiculously long time for you to make. My other minor concern that you probably are even more aware of is making sure any higher-res textures still match the fmv's as best as possible. Any models that look good but don't match could always be released separately but I'm greedy and I want this mod.  ;)

I'm sure you'll do fine anyways though, but I like this mod a lot and decided to give some feedback.  8-)

Thanks for your input. That's pretty much what I do, but it still reduces the quality. It's slightly more pixelated. But thought I'd ask before I merged them into one. Ha guess this is the only way.
Then again not that it matters too much, considering the ff7 game itself is quite zoomed out and you can hardly see the details to begin with. ( which was why my old vincent textures looked good ingame and not in 3d max)

My other minor concern that you probably are even more aware of is making sure any higher-res textures still match the fmv's as best as possible

Thanks for the feedback. I only edited my Vincent due to it being "too simple" at first. But do not worry, the end result will still blend with the other characters. Furthermore lighting! Makes a huge impact on my models. So with the correct lighting, it should be all good ;)

Edit: Just to show you that they all blend :)

Hello. I'm new on this forum.Excelent work dude...but I think that Cloud hairs should be more yellow and his sword is too big,other than that excelent work!!! :) Vincent model...just wow :-)

Good eye ;)
True, that his sword should be shorter. But I prefer it slightly bigger ha you can always re-size it yourself if you'd like in kimera. Remember this is FMV "Inspired" and not 100% based upon.
As for his hair, I did see a lot of different shades such as dark yellow and more to the orange side in certain pictures. Then again it's because his in different areas with different lighting. I only stuck with his current colour, Since i believe it blends well with most of the background environment he is in.


Edit:

Completed

Merged all the textures into one. The cape isn't as high quality compared to the  old pictures in terms of lines and folds within the cape. But i rather use 1 texture file in-comparison to 6.
I did upscale the face texture and redrew the eyes however. I think this is a good compromise, the cape was too detailed compared to the other characters anyway.

So do you like the new Vincent compared to my old release? :D

im not sure what the Zack model would be used for.
Uh, you do realize Zack appears in the original game on multiple occasions, albeit through flashbacks, right?  ???

yeah, and I realize those are one-time only scenes some people never even see.
it's cool to have nonetheless. Maybe replace Cait Sith with a Zack Clone

Very good job on the models! Well done, I really like the vincent one!

"Never even see"? They're part of the story! People are forced to see them... Unless they look away from the computer screen...
But anyways he is a very important character to the story of the game and also deserves a remake just like Cloud or the other main characters

I haven't tested them in-game, But in theory I think The huge Cloud would be completely invisible in "Cloud's mind" and probably only his sword is visible (Since the sword was added to  chest bone ) if not, then nothing at all. Since I'm not using any vertex colors, the whole model is textured in group 0.

Ha good to know. Also Yes, and i know how :)
But there's no point for me since i find it more satisfying to create my own  8)
Unless i use it as reference side by side ( if i'm lazy looking at pictures as reference) But i doubt that.

If it's not much to ask for, i'll be waiting for it after this project of yours.
Vincent is my favourite character and i think he has been redone greatly in DoC.

Also, do you think you could do his Galian Beast and Chaos form from DoC? Would be awesome to have it in his limit break.

ha when i have more time, i suppose i can try.

Anyway so i was browsing through youtube and found this

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cport3zgHP0

Is this the newest dissidia? I haven't played or seen any cut scenes before, until just now. haha is it worth playing just so i can watch all the cutscenes? Also do i have to watch the first dissidia to understand the story?

I have it on my psp (dissidia 012) but never touched it before and if i were to play it, i'd use an emulator for full hd ha. Otherwise if anyone knows a hd playlist in the correct order on youtube, that'll be awesome! Since i'm abit reluctant to play just to watch the cutscenes.

If you want an emulator try JPCSP (http://buildbot.orphis.net/jpcsp/) . I also use a HDMI converter/upscaler by Lenkeng (http://www.lenkeng.net/Html/Product/PSP-to-HDMI-converter.html).

Yep, that's Duodecim. They actually have a mod where you can start a new game while keeping all the materials you obtained on your save from the first game, and go through each story with the new functions they added in, such as the world map. It's a great game.

It's been quite awhile since I've entered the forum. I can see a lot of wonderful mods and the progression is just amazing.

Unfortunately I cannot release my NPC reconstruction as of yet. I was 80% done, up until my hard drive crashed and lost all of my files. Sigh.

In any case. I assume all menu and world texture overhauls will eventually be close to 3D. I decided to re-model Cid. Rather than basing it on the FMV completely this time. I'll create my own rendition. Not too high quality as it will look out of place. Minimal but it will suffice haha

Sneak peek.

Wow, I can't believe you're back. Welcome back  :)

If possible, I'd suggest finish modeling everyone after the FMV style. Kaldarasha is the only one who has a complete set of the characters, so having a second set with a different style is good IMO. I like consistency in the designs. Just my opinion 8)

Wow. That Cid is looking awesome. I was actually thinking of making a Cid myself until I saw yours. Don't think it can get much better than that, without going too high rez for the game at least :p. Great job!

Also are you still going to release the battle model for sephiroth and the other characters? Just curious.
