Subject: [227] Unreal HD Weapons (v0.6 Released!)

Post Posted: 30 Jul 2012, 20:53

ABOUT:

Quick Description: HD Weapons for 227 is a mod I am developing utilizing 227 specific features in order to bring the stock weapons of Unreal more up-to-date with today's graphics. The mod will feature new skins, new emitters and projectiles, and various things to come. This is STRICTLY an eye-candy mod. I am not changing anything else but visual looks only, and only for the stock weapons. So to be clear, this is not an ear-candy mod...there will be no new sounds...no changes to how the weapons originally work...or any such thing like changing monsters weapons / projectiles around. If it ever comes to that, it will be far from now, and probably in a separate mod.

Umm, are you going to include new models and textures? If so, I was thinking (and even made some steps to it) about doing so, so I might be of a help here.

UPDATE:

July 30th, 2012:

Currently as it stands, I have the Stinger and Eightball re-made. Stinger is pretty much 100% complete while the Eightball is fairly close. Both have been re-skinned (to an extent) with glow / lighting effects added (screenies coming soon). Both also have new projectile and particle effects, all of which will be described below.

STINGER:

click for hi-rez





added:

-new skin (plus glow)
-projectile glow
-projectile shards

changed:

-projectile lighting (brighter)

EIGHTBALL:

click for hi-rez





added:

-new skin (plus glow)
-new rocket trail effect (velocity dependant smoke)
-new explosion effect / glow / lighting

changed:

-smoke darker/greyer to look more like smoke and not steam (this has always bugged me for a while)
-emitters optimized to be more fps friendly
-explosion sound

KNOWN ISSUES/BUGS: (so far)

-particle effects are unlit
-weapon glow overlay texture does not work on first person or third person mesh, only on pickup mesh so far
-firing many rockets may cause a severe drop in fps...needs (more) optimization


Also, just to be clear about the skins, I simply took the originals and sharpened them up a little (now at 512x512) and added the lighting and glow effects, so they are not complete re-made skins (yet anyway). I don't know whether this is permanent or temporary. If someone would like to help me completely re-skin the old models, speak up! ;)

When I beta tested Zephon the server I played on was using a mutator that swapped all the Unreal weapon skins with highly detailed S3TC variants. I never asked Whirl Wind Wabbit where those skins originated and I haven't seen them since. They certainly left an impression and I very much like the idea of things like this being available. I've seen some very impressive things on the OldUnreal forums concerning redoing the HUD in Hi Res and even some improvements on Unreal pickups. You should join forces :o

I haven't seen anyone tackle the projectiles yet, so that's certainly pretty cool to see. The stinger skin with the lights reminds me of the one UA made for RD.

@Qtit: Models no. Textures yes. My texturing however is limited and cannot model...your help would be greatly appreciated =)

@Prophet and/or UBerserker: If you can find those high res textures and if I am allowed to use them, I'd gladly implement them into HD Weps...as I dont think I have the time nor skill to re-do the textures from scratch...which is really what needs to be done...not just a quick polish up like I am...but its the most I can do right now.

@Everyone else: I'm contemplating whether or not I should release a pre-alpha version and so on (continue to release test versions with every update or so) in order to get feedback and testers...and also because I just want to get this out there asap =P. What do you guys think? alpha and beta test versions or wait for final release? Perhaps I will start a poll...

Awesome UB, thanks. Do you know who made them? Maybe Shivaxi can contact them.

EDIT:
Depending on how this develops (I've seen other HD projects build momentum and then...stop) I'd be willing to lend the RD Stinger skin to the heap, as I am not currently using it.

Thankyou UBerserker...any help is much appreciated.

EDIT:

Small Update:

-added new flame emitter particle effect with lensflare
-added spark explosion effect
-added sparks to the flame effect

click for hi-rez





Also fixed a ton of bugs regarding rockets not exploding under water and smoke trail dissapearing as it entered water or another zone due to the way emitters render in different zones...had to disable bstasis and bnoupdateoninvis...works fine now...and fixed smoke and sparks showing up in water zones...acts much more realistic now...

Oh and on a further note...seeing how the poll is going and just from my own desires...an alpha test version will probably be released tonight or tomorrow sometime this week. Keep a look out and please be sure to report any bugs or whatnot! I'll take ideas, criticism, bug reports, compliments, insults, flowers or fruit...and most of all pie...

EDIT 2: I'm not sure whether I should do a video or not first before releasing a test version
