Hows it going :smile:

Here's a minimod ready for download. This is my first properly attempted project (either than blacking the entire female skin to make ninja armor in my first mod heh). I hope to see my armor in some of these great mods.

(For M&B version 7.51)*
*Capatible version for v8.0 coming soon... next year :wink:
Merry christmas everyone!

Feedback welcome but please read the readme first :wink:

NOTE: (Fair skin females capatible only so far (for uncovered armors)
- This minimod is fully focused on use for fantasy mods, it is not focused on medieval realism in ne way. Though the covered armors have a 'realism' factor to them.
- This isnt a porn mod, its for applying some sensuality into female combat fighters. So that you can look across the battlefield and go 'ok, that aint a man who's killing everyone, its a woman', etc.

EDIT: Updated 16/11/06

=========================

Models:

FANTASY

1) Female light plate
Heres one light breastplate armor for female fantasy characters - resembles armor from Athena or Artemis (greek goddesses). Due to the limitations of gmax I've been unable to successfully implement all the features I wanted but it still looks quite good (I've also included sandals to go with it:

------------------------

2) Female armoured bikini (from lack of a better name), the first model of this project. It's not included in the scripts in the mod but it's sitting in the brf file if you want to use it.

Taking aim:

3) Female plate armor (covered / uncovered versions)

This model took longer then expected as the native black armor had glitches that I had to work around, thanks to Stefano - I find a temp solution by skinning (I didnt even know what envelopes or uv maps were until a few days ago lol). For some reason the armor I just made reminds me of Callisto in Xena...

Final results:

SEMI-REALISM

4) Female leather jerkin - feminine version of the leather jerkin.

5) Female lamellar cuirass - feminine version of the lamellar cuirass. I've successfully allowed the armor to blend in with helmets.

it'd be cool to have female versions of all the normal armors, especially the cloth clothing, because every time a chick wears a linen shirt or leather jacket, etc. they look like a man, and that just bothers me.

That is a good start.  Any chance og some female chain armor that has some coverage but also some curves?

Heh thanks, yeah it's my first modelling/skinning task (and I'm editing skins on photoshop only  :shock: )
gmax has been kind though, with tutorials and the like.

But heck, I'm encountering serious glitches now - on the shoulder pads :S
It seems that although it looks beaut on brfedit, the model goes awkward during certain animations. I'm quite inexperienced in fixing the mesh bugs, if ne one can help me, pm me. Before I release (and play this) I need to figure out how to fix it.

Current Known Bugs:
- two-handed sword animations
- horse charging animations

EDIT: Pics removed (Old)

What happens on the animations? It sounds like a rigging problem.
Do you have the latest version of BRFEdit? Some previous versions imported wrong all vertexes weights.
HINT: all shoulder pads vertexes should be marked as "rigid" and attributed to only one bone.

Why is she not wearing armor on her stomach, thighs, chest, and arms?  :neutral:

lmao!

Yeah it's a rigging prob. I have the last version, but as for editing bones in gmax I have no idea. I've been playing around for 12 hrs straight (day off  :mrgreen: ) but no luck and it seems to be a problem with the black armor itself - I tested it. It works ok, I kinda just lifted the shoulder pad. I did edit the vertexes to narrow the shoulders a bit.

The bugs seem to 'bury' the left shoulder pad into the skin when charging the horse (sorta fixed now, minor glitches cant be helped), and swinging a two-handed sword really narrows down the width of the arms. It's a glitch in the native black armor but it seems the native black armor managed to cover it up with the black texture :razz:

Since you are a pro though if you can polish it up it'll be great :wink:
PM me if you want an early copy (I'm still waiting on Aleanne since the bikini plate is her texture)

So when are we going to have a nekkid mod?

Well it aint gonna be done by me  :roll:

I wrote about this on my Ogre topic. What makes looking at virtual boobies worse that chopping a virtual head off? I don't think there's much problems in both cases, except if you're under 10 or a psychotic, that can't tell what's real and what's virtual. The nakedness stuff seems to cause much more havock than the assassination one. What a silly taboo. I think nakedness is less of a problem than blood, if you ask me.
I'll do a bare-skin model sometime. Male too...

Subotai,
Thanks for the "pro" bit.
Ah, yes... I had noticed that glitch but I though no one else did. It's pretty well covered up, indeed... maybe if instead of lifting/narrowing her shoulders, you opened the curve of the shoulder pad just a bit? Makes sense to you?
I'll PM you.

I can use naked skins, given male mesh will have legs instead of trousers... Gee, think of it you loose a battle and you don't only loose your inventory, you also loose your clothes, that would justify the huge perk bonuses in my mod.

I think it's a great idea! I just think the whole "show us some skin" female armor can have it's use in fantasy mods.
I had though about this myself, since all armor on M&B (except for the dresses) basicaly just make all women look like man. Broad shoulder, flat chest and all.
And there's the female armor (does not show lots of skin) I've made for Dionisia (for those who didn't see it).

Nice job! I'll make a few myself, sometime.

Stefano, you know are officially king modeller/texturer on this forum now that raptor has left. The king is dead, long live the king.

Yeah I've opened the curve, and it's mostly fixed except for the damn arm-thinning :S

I'll send u what I have at the moment, I'm sure u can make an amatuer's work professional lol

Yeah, it puzzles me, too.  I think I might go for a 'sigil of protection' spell where your character gets a temporary armor that has high protection and no weight, but you can't wear any clothes!
