Hi gents :smile:

The nords in M&B are my favourite faction but I think they could be improved. So I've decided to produce a viking pack that will help modders to make a better Nordic faction.

They look great. I'm looking forward to the new clothes you talk of.
The picture isn't too big, and I think it's the right place, isn't it? It is mod related afterall.

You really work fast, AD. They look really good - something tells me you're going to be making some great mods for M&B in the future (if your TW skills are anything to go by).  :smile:

Can't wait to see the next part!

Thanks gents.

Can someone help me with a couple of things:

1) Which tool allows me to edit meshes?  Specifically I want to be able to move UVW maps.

2) Which .BRF file contains the "rich tunic" mesh? It's texture is on costumes7.dds.

I cant really move forward until I've fixed these two issues.

Cheers

Wings 3d and Blender, I personally prefer blender, they're both free.

Archer,

Thanks!! Now I can crack on with those viking tunics!  :twisted:

By the way, has anyone ever tried to add a helmet that doesn't have an aventail covering the back of the neck?  :idea:

Is the skin on the back of the neck and ears rendered?

Vikings normally wore just helmets, without aventails, so I wonder if it would be possible to add hair to the helmet mesh so that it covers the back of the head and ears.

Ya, that's possible, there are already items like the Felt hat or Worn Cap that do what you mean.

That's correct, only the head mesh is rendered beneath the helmet, the hair is not. There is an option to leave the head unrendered in each helmet's item entry, but I know that is not what you're asking about. Hair is easy enough to add to a helmet mesh, although you have to be careful how it lays because you cannot make any part of it move independently of the head bone. The only way to do this, I think, is to add the hair to a body mesh and attach the upper part to the head and the rest to another bone (see spartan body in 300 mod), but this does not allow for differing hair colors. You could, however, also add a helmet to a body mesh and give the mesh head armor properties making it a package deal, but then a proper helmet must not be used.
Just throwing some ideas out there, I hope you could understand my rambling.

Totally gonna steal those...  :grin:
Same here... of course with proper acknowledgments! :razz: I think I might be able to make these work for my Saxons. If you were bored and wanted to craft out a "Irish Black Shield" I would be even more excited. :wink: Otherwise I'll have to keep that on my to do list.

Thanks again gents.

Talon,

Thanks for the suggestions. I think the first thing I'll try is simply deleting the aventail from a helmet and see how it looks in game. If it looks a bit weird without any hair then I'll probably just made short blonde and brunette wigs and attach them to the helmets so atleast the player can choose the right hair colour.

Ruthven,

No need to steal these!  :razz: Nick.Altman is helping me to get the work integrated into the game, so the shields, helmets and clothing will be available in his mod first. Once my work is complete and debugged, I'll release the full pack as open source and anyone will be able to use, modify and release as they please.

Lord shields,

I think they should work nicely for saxons.

Cheers
