More Realistic World Map Animations
« on: 2020-11-28 06:38:44 »
More Realistic World Map Animations (catchy name, no?)
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aS0tSCN4YA5enIS9pG3zCGIcjA15LRcL/view?usp=sharing ( .iro file for use with 7th heaven mod manager )

this .iro  is  compatible with other world map mods, including ones with animation effects, just make sure this one is on top


videos of this mod here: https://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=20364.msg282723#msg282723

the exception being the end-game highwind jets, that got modified AFTER the above videos (and its actually one of the best ones)

i tried to get a video of the new highwind jets, but there is only 3 frames to the animation and for some reason my videos will consistently only show 2 of the 3.... that one is a head scratcher for me, so consider the highwind jets a bonus for installing it!



I decided to make a new thread for this because unlike the world map stuff thread, this is 100% my own work and i can release it as my own mod

the textures in the world map stuff thread will never see a release like this (they will be released as a part of reunion, you can go rip the textures yourself, still) because its not my mod to distribute, i was just trying to showcase my work to it

Great, installing it now. I'll test the animations later.

It is possible to make new animations for Sephiroth (the non battle NPC), the way he walks... well, looks weird.

3d models and animations are on my to-do list for the future, but right now i dont know how to edit those

this should be close to complete... unless the ultima weapon ancient forest animation is wonky, havent gotten that far yet

edit 12-12-20: fixed a small glitch with submarine animation, also, when i'm certain this is complete i will convert to .dds instead of .png

updated this with 2 more, i thought this was done about 5 animations ago... haha

this one is VERY subtle, it might look like there simply is no longer an animation, but its there, just a little ripple left behind, at the end of the video i walk in the shadowed part to make it a bit easier to see

pitting my new animations from MRWMA against satsuki's new syw5 pack:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tP5XyE_amnP443Dh2Ea9XfCgAPotR9DF/view?usp=sharing - highwind jets

this is my 3rd pass through the highwind jets, the beginning of the flames are no longer squared, the edges more billowy and added texture to detoon and make the flames look more real

in addition to the above 3 effects added, small glitches in the buggy and tiny bronco animations have been fixed

all the world map effects in the game have now been edited by hand with this version, this is not to say i'm done however! there is still much room for improvement

Just went through your last couple of posts and I gotta say I do tend to like the ones you've made better than remako or satsuki's.  The more transparent/subdued texture is easier on the eyes.  My one criticism would probably be the one you did for walking through the marsh, I can't see it at all.   I'm not sure how I feel about the highwind thrusters.  Seems like some orange was added in?  It almost looks like it's misfiring or something.

the marsh i absolutely got lazy on, it needs a new texture but i just left the vanilla and made it almost disappear instead of fixing it, there are a couple others i did that on that i'll work on again for sure

the diamond weapon ones are other ones i'll go over again, i really like the splashing i accomplished, but its TOO subtle now, diamond weapon is meant to make some BIG splashes there and make a scene and i took that away a bit


i really appreciate the feedback on the jets, i did indeed add orange because i wanted the tips to be orange to show the flames losing heat, but i didnt blend it well enough and i actually see the misfiring now, IMO this is the most important animation in the game so i want it to be perfect

just updated link in OP
redid from last version:
-highwind jets (overhaul in color)
-highwind over water (more subtle)
-highwind and ruby weapon force rings? (color adjusted and more subtle)
-diamond weapon splashing (more prominent)
-walking over marsh (more subtle, fixed weird animation)
-buggy breakdown (color adjusted and electric arcs emit light)
-walking on desert (no more clods of sand)
-fixed issue where this mod wouldnt work properly when ON along with SYW5+FFNx1.8.0+, is now fully compatible with ANY world map mod (both can be ON, make sure this one is on top)
-will use DDS file if you have that enabled, otherwise will use PNG


probably see a hiatus with this mod now since i'm working on other stuff

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AuVEpdJt79lsVceTt-go4I2B4dNBIn9q/view?usp=sharing - longer MRWMA highwind jets

other stuff is mostly minor adjustments
