Flag model update

Yes, I've finally found a way to animate those stupid flags. After weeks and weeks of trail and error I finally found a way.
Of course I'm talking about the flags for the open source game Nexuiz. The animations are pretty much done, there's still a bit more things to be done but overall the hardest part is over. Now there's just a 'semi'-hard part left. But before I talk about that I need to know if that will be done or even can be done.
However, I don't believe it will be long now until I release these flags for everyone to see and enjoy. So till then I'm just going to keep you guys in suspense about the animations. Of course, you can still download the static flags and follow the thread I have over at Nexuiz forums but I'm not going to upload these half-done animated flags just yet. You'd have to settle for the static.

Portals model done.

I believe at least. Unless someone has any comments regarding the texturing the models are done. I've put them up on the Nexuiz official forums. So now I'll just have to wait.

More textures

That's right. Even more textures, these are a set. Btw, you can use them anyway you like, for commercial work, personal or even in GPL game or whatever. Consider these textures I make here as GPL. If they weren't GPL i wouldn't post such rather high resolution :P
I have these available as 2048x2048 as well. :)


That's right. I'm posting some textures that I made. These are 1024x1024 including normal maps of course. It's good to have textures as you never know when you'll need them.

EDIT: I changed the normal map, the one with circles. I saw it was incorrect and so I fixed it so that the normal map really defines what's in the texture.

Nexuiz Portals model and DAC

Hi there people.
Long time no talk here. At least if feels like that for me, and I bet it is. Will have to check the last date I posted something here after this.
But anyway, just to fill you guys in whats been happening. I've started to model a Nexuiz portals model. What this actually is is the following: Nexuiz has a gun which created two portals, one 'start' and one 'end' portal. I even think 'teleporters' are a better word but they are called portals in Nexuiz. You step into the 'start' portal and you're teleported to the 'end' portal. Now this works only one way, so you cannot step into the 'end' portal and come out from the 'start' portal.

Now that's the actual description. But be sure to check that portal gun out in game. It's actually called 'Port-O-Launch' that gun.

Aside from that, I also have updated the 3D Buzz competition scene, unfortunately Maya kept crashing when I was only halfdone with my entry due to insufficient memory. So I wasn't able to submit anything as I wasn't even finished with my entry. This latest image shows how far I actually got into the competition. But I will still finish this piece in my spare time. I don't want to give up on this yet :)

That's it for today guys. Hope my next post won't be so far along into the future.
