Some of you guys might remember the armour which was based on the Marksdwarf illustration I made quite a long while ago. The illustration itself was loosely inspired from an Argentinian MMOG I used to waste time in (usually by lagging). So here's the whole set based on that illustration available for your download.



DOWNLOAD LINK:

http://uploader.polorix.net//files/304/blend/model/bronze_warrior_set.zip (alt link)

Install notes:
1. Unzip the BRF file into your mod's resource folder, the DDS files into the mod's textures folder.
2. Load the BRF in the module.ini by adding this line at the bottom:
Code:
load_mod_resource = amade_bronzewarrior
3. Use the Module System to add new items that use the mesh, or replace the mesh for existing items. You may also use the itemEditor to add/replace items in compiled mods.
4. ???
5. Profit!!!

Usage terms:

None whatsoever. Just use it if you like.



In-game screenshots:

For some reason I like bronze a lot. Steel is superior of course, and probably cheaper than bronze. But this isn't a historically accurate medieval armour (somewhat semi-fantasy I suppose) so I just stuck with bronze. The full set includes:

  • 1 Bronze Breastplate + female version.
  • 1 Bbronze Winged Helm.
  • 1 pair of Bronze Gauntlets (original game mesh retextured + new cuffs).
  • 1 pair of Bronze Greaves.
  • 1 Latticed Flatbow.
  • 1 Leather Quiver w/ Bronze Arrows.
  • 1 Iron War Hatchet w/ belt clip (carry mesh, itcf_carry_quiver_right_vertical). Suggested weapon length: 45. You can make up for its small reach by giving it high damage or very fast speed.

You can call the items whatever you like, it doesn't have to be Bronze Breastplate, etc. Could also be gold although gold armor is a)expensive b)useless. All models have 2 LoDs assigned to them.

Nitpicks on the model/textures are appreciated.

Just the breastplate, it's vertex animated. So if you put it on a female character it will automatically use the female's mesh which is a roomier breastplate with wider hips, narrower shoulders. See the rightmost part of the image in the first link of screenshots.

If we could vertex animate all other parts of armour so that it corresponds to gender/race I'd definitely do that :wink:
But no, I didn't make a gender specific version of this armor, sorry.

oh well my bad then. Maybe you should do an all female version just because. *hint* lol.

beautifully done, amade, thank you very much for sharing.  i have no skills with any graphics\photo programs, so my modding relies on the graciousness of talented folks like you to improve the weapons, armor and other items available in-game.  i, too, love the bronze... some can be called gilded, rather than gold, thus allowing the imagination to call the item gilded steel, etc.  works for me anyway.
  thanks again,
  regards,
