Ok, I'll just have this thread for the discussion of our (Me and X-Bro) energy blades, and to keep yous updated on what progress we make.

I'll start with reposting the pictures.
My PlasEdge:
[br][img width=478 height=865]../../files/public/1164926527_164_FT0_plas_sword.jpg[/img][br][img width=123 height=562]../../files/public/1164926591_164_FT0_plas_sword5.jpg[/img][br][img width=231 height=726]../../files/public/1164926619_164_FT0_plas_sword4.jpg[/img]

And Ganome's energy blade (name is still being considered):
[br][img width=800 height=568]../../files/public/1164926701_164_FT0_1164828711_240_ft20043_pic_1_.jpg[/img][br][img width=800 height=568]../../files/public/1164926733_164_FT0_1164828711_240_ft20043_pic_2_.jpg[/img]

Again, his model will not have those materials in game, they are just there to help show the model better.


Discuss.

Thanks. Ganome's working the sounds for his energy blade as I type. :)

Unfortunately, I'm toiling away at other projects for people right now, so I'm not going to be working on my PlasEdge for a couple days (or weeks) !sad
But I'll get this done in due time, so don't worry. :)

Man, can't wait to get it done... imagine a dual, one with a PlasEdge, the other with an energy sword... man, that could make for some awesome battles... !amazed

Although thats not to say they were made with dualing in mind, it'd just be cool to see. ;)

yeah, but first RS needs to add a deeper melee combat system, one with block animations, that you really see and other things, but that for a TC. Oh man for UT2k7, PA should have a swarm gametype in which you hold your ground against tons of Kraos and other guys, and because UT2k7 will be much better for the models, you could litterally have it so when you hack at a krao drone, you see the axehead (or other weapon) inside the thing, or you could just shoot at it from 1 side to the other, making it fall in half. :p

Or you could do it the dead rising way and make dozens of scandaliously low-poly Krao that still look good.

I'm sure my bro will appreciate that, DuexHero. :)
(He's a fan of those games as well :D )

Yeah, with what there is now, the dual wouldn't look very spectacular, but still, it could make for some cool looking duels, at least in theory. :)

Looks like my Bro's gonna be doing the sounds for his blade, and so far they sound pretty cool. I can't garuantee it'll be sounding the same as what I described earlier, but I got a solution to that.

More on that at a later date.

Thanks Deuxhero, I nearly finished making this blade for JA except for the UV maps.
Then you might be able to give a fair comparison. :D

krao hordes in gametype.. looks like someone has been sneaking around our idea pit !mistrust

Hey, from what you guys said in the Project Archon thread about lots and lots of krao used to invade, it just seemed like the natural thing to expect would be some srt of invasion game mode with lots of the buggers. ;)

that looks like saber hilt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! please make for JW !!! thank you ;) !heart

Author:  Captain Xavious [ Mon Dec 11, 2006 5:31 am ]
Post subject:  Development on Energy Swords

Yep, its supposed to look like one. ;)

It's going to move away from the light saber appearance once we get things figured out, like emitters and and sound effects, plus he's going to make different hilts too, not all going to look as fancy as Star Wars ones. :P :)

We're working on getting it done for JW, but my bro is the one who's going to be doing the light saber, I'm doing the other one. :)

*pokes the thread with a stick* Are you still alive Xavious?

Author:  Captain Xavious [ Mon Dec 25, 2006 10:52 pm ]
Post subject:  Development on Energy Swords

Well, I am, but my computer took a crap a week or two ago and I didn't have any of my models backed up in Maya format (the modeling program I was most familiar with).

Fortunately they are backed up in 3DS max format and I was planning on eventually learning how to use it anyways... guess this would be a great time to learn. :D

I appreciate your concern, knowing that someone is still interested, gives me more determination to get it done. :)

I've always been interested, just didn't want to bother you by asking too often.

Author:  Captain Xavious [ Wed Dec 27, 2006 9:22 pm ]
Post subject:  Development on Energy Swords

Oh, thats good to hear! :)

Don't worry about asking too often, I could probably use it. :D

Check your PM box, too. ;)

Not yet, been trying to get my modem to work still, and it seems I have made some progress, as my ISP does detect it now...

Hey X, you get any further on this? You did say to ask often, so... yeah...

Post subject:  Development on Energy Swords

From what i remember, X said something a while ago that he lost alot of the Energy sword stuff, though this is just my bad memory, it may be right, or is totally wrong.
