[WIP/RELz] Silt Strider

Hi guys :)

I`m a guy that made silt strider for Skyrim. It isnt released yet and I still havent animated it.

It is my first complete model for a game (tho at first I didnt build it for importing) and was to be my first mod called Spine of the East (about Morrowind encampment in Skyrim).

 

in-game:

hi-poly render:

 

Anyway I didnt play Morrowblivion since I dont like it. I hate Oblivion and its render... ways...

But when I saw your work on Skywind I was literaly trapped in a part of outer space where I had unlimited time and visions of beauty = I was in awe :O

So I decided to join forums and let you know that when you finish or make a playable sublimation of these two games, I would gladly let you import my model (if you want/need it).

Good luck with your progress!

Nandi

OMG YES

I was expecting a simple port of the old silt strider, but this is AMAZING! Did you model it yourself???

You know, maybe we could use them like the carriage system in Skyrim, you know, with the mod that makes it possible to actually ride them instead of paying for fast travel. That would be awesome.

That is an awesome Silt

That is an awesome Silt Strider!

Assuming we don't get one that looks even more awesome (which I don't think we will), I'm sure we'd be glad to use yours in Skywind. :)

Whoah, yeah sorry for the misunderstanding.  I was saying that we probably won't ever have anything as good as yours, so we would be happy to use your Silt Strider in Skywind. :)

ok

If it was really misunderstanding then I am sorry also.

I`ve updated top render with a higher res (wallpaper resolution)

- note shining eyes are not in game at the moment since I cant achive effect I want.

Salute.

I agree with andynev, you

I agree with andynev, you seem to be very good at it, maybe if you want you can do some more modeling? There's always some stuff that can use new models. The original Morrowind meshes seem to be pretty ugly here and there these days.

Hi

I dont know, cant promise anything. I moved recently to new place and started to work on my portfolio.

Made a dwarf sketch today. Maybe when I finish portfolio I put it into Skywind as Yagrum Bagarn replacer.

Cheers

Well, all the help we can get is a blessing to us. Don't spend your time on this if you can't afford it though. But I must say, you're really good at modelling.

I'm speechless.  That isn't made of polygons is it?  It has so much lifelike detail that I would swear it is made of point-cloud (voxels, atoms, or whatever else you want to call it) data. :D

wow your a great artist,

wow your a great artist, excellent work :D

if you find time could you try to remake the

plants/flowers of skywind?(stoneflowers, gold kanet, heather etc), they look so horrible

that they dont fit the game no matter what texture i use for them :(

I hate to drop a request but I gotta ask, as that stilt strider is AMAZING.

Would you consider remodelling the Cliffracer? They really didn't improve much in the transition from Morrowind>Morroblivion.

It brings up good points

It brings up good points though, the only place you ever saw striders was at the (docking areas?) where you hired one from. There were no wild striders on vvardenfell. Ashlander camps had the strider shells which they used for houses etc but where did they come from? Also caravans. Those would be possible once navmeshing is done (i think). What would be a better sight than crossing the ashlands and seeing a strider carrying market goods to another town?

This kagouti remake looks good, think you can make something similar sometime in the future? And have it animated? :)

elothYes I can, but not any

Yes I can, but not any time soon. Got a lot of personal things I want/need to do/finish first.

Oh and I do only basic animation, so you need an animator.

check this out

this blew my mind off, there is a mod on skyrim nexus that adds volumetric fog, mod is called: 

Supreme and Volumetric Fog

this feels so much like Morrowind :)))

ps, spot an npc near bottom right corner, for proportion with strider lol

good news

Hey guys, I`ve updated normal maps

however there is a leaked picture of Dragonborn`s official silt-strider dlc, so it makes mine obsolete.

I had a great time making this one but it never reached phase with full colision and animation, so this is great news!

Cant wait to get my hands on Dragonborn :)

btw. pics in page are messed up

Cheers

sorry to bring this old topic back

I just wanted to share this posed render in Marmoset. These are all from maps I used in Skyrim, but here it looks a lot better.

Happy holidays everyone, sincere best wishes in 2013 for entire Skywind team.

Hope we all have a productive year.
