I needed to "Update Tangentspace", but I still have no idea why I had black textures and Chr1s0g had working textures. Issues like that drive me nuts, as no one can help as they don't see the same problem when testing.
As off now, Zilav and Ormin are exploring/working how far they can go with regards to the quests with auto tools. Cross your fingers and we will have nothing to do :)
More seriously, when they tell us this is as far they can go and they need dev to join this particular topic, I would start and lead the quest effort as I'm doing in Skywind. Glad to see I won't be alone on it :)
I'm working on facegen and I'm almost done with the letter C
Good, you have plenty of letters to go :)
Well when I want a change of pace from converting meshes, I will work on some Facegen's. I will do letter U and work backwards, according to the spreadsheet it has not been allocated. But I am not sure if its being updated regularly. So if anyone has any issues with that, please let me know.
I will assign you to U. Keep me updated on the letters you are working on :) I updated the spreadsheets whenever someone claims something so the sooner you let me know the better :)
I'll be finished with C tomorrow so put me down for D
alright! Im loving your enthusiasm :p
I might take a crack at modeling some of the weapons
I will inform you if anything good pops up.
Some weapons are already done
Also 0.2 will additionally have bows and arrows.
You can check what is still missing and convert it. And/or fix those converted weapons, for example yesterday I noticed that blood decals mesh is wrong on pirate's cutlass. There can be other issues too.
Oh. I didn't really see that thread, I'm assuming the weapons are coverts and not custom?
The basic Skyblivion is a direct port including meshes and textures, however if you are willing to model your own meshes, fell free to do so. They can be used as a mod for Skyblivion, and later be included in a one big overhaul if there will be enough contributors willing to remake Skyblivion like Skywind does.
I guess the focus should be getting the base convert to work and then work about then worry about the design of the weapons later.
Is there anything else I can contribute with?
Depends on what skills you have and want to do.
If modeling, then convert weapons that are still missing except bows and arrows. We also need our own bushes and trees looking similar to originals, replaces from nexus look fine too but not all of them are even close to Oblivion's flora.
If working with CK, then the easiest task for now is facegening NPCs.
My apologies for the lack of activity in the last month (or 2) I have and still am very busy with school and my personal life and its getting harder and harder to find time to do things that Im passionate about. I have found a few new modders for Skyblivion and I will sent them this way asap. I will also respond to all the messages that ive been getting trough steam, morroblivion priv chat etc.
If you started working on something for Skyblivion (facegen etc) and the spreadsheets dont have whatever you are working on marked as claimed by you, please tell me so I can update them :)
ENJOY YOUR WEEKEND!
I -might- be able to start working on Facegens "O" atleast some, but I've never really done it before.
give it a try and keep me updated. if you get the hang of it and start making progress AWESOME, if not thats okey you gave it a try and no hard feelings :)
Got any suggestions as to what I could use for Facegen or should I stick with construction set? ( And are the npcs already made? )
NPCs are made but I reckon wait until 0.2 so that they all have nav-mesh and and that good stuff.
I would like to help out doing facegen for npcs, where do i get started?
Do you have experience with facegen? to get started all you need to do is checkout the spreadsheet and pick a letter that no-one is working on. then do facegen for all the NPC's that start with that letter :)
I'm new to modding, but would like to try my hand at it. I have both Skyrim and Oblivion, but not Morrowind (yet), so I can't work on the Skywind project. I'm a software developer by profession, and am willing to learn to do just about anything, although I probably won't be good at modeling, and would likely prefer scripting and whatnot. I am more than happy to try my hand at anything, just point me in the right direction. Also, any instructions on things I might need to get started on this project? Feel free to email me at email@example.com.
sry for not responding sooner :/ Ive been away for a while but I'll sent you an email about what you might be able to help with
Skilled individuals in writing complex analysis / work tools are highly valued here. If you feel like doing some research - pm me
Newbie here willing to do some FaceGen. The A letter at the spreadsheet seems very lonely, so let me give it some love :P If someone is on it already or something, please let me know, I'll switch to S. I don't want to screw things up.
I have to ask, though; I only have Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine. Are the other plug-ins mandatory to work on this?
Nope, even KOTN is not required (yet).
As for facegen, you don't need Skyblivion to work on it. Just create a new plugin in CK with new NPC records and faces, but make sure that EditorID's are the same as in oblivion. In that case faces can be transferred into Skyblivion without any problems. You will also need to create facegen mesh/texture files to avoid gray faces bug and upload them too with esp.
Thanks a lot, zilav. I will claim A then and start working on it.
updated spreadsheet and A is all yours :)
I don't suppose there's any need for concept artists for this project? Skywind seems to be swamped with them.
I made some Skyblivion guard concepts on my thread (I plan on doing much more). Though it is a Skywind thread, and I'm not sure if I can make it a Skyblivion one as well. Though just note, a lot of stuff for Skyblivion shall be gracing it's face.
Just asking because I'm a concept artist myself, but still haven't found any proper ways to contribute to this wonderful project. Yep, saw your stuff Saivryn, it's looking real good!
Yixist and Saivryn
how about you 2 make a Skyblivion concept art thread? maybe you can work together to give us some concepts for armors. or make your own thread where you can keep us updated with the art you created :)
Saivryn I saw your concepts for the guards and they looked awesome!
Yixist cant w8 to see what you come up with.
I am a sound engineer, and I am currently studying to get a major in Music Media Production from Ball State University. I love the Elder Scrolls games, and would love to help with Skyblivion. I can record voiceovers, and master audio files. I can also record soundtrack and most anyother audio stuff. I play the violin as well, so I can play music too. Please let me know what I can do to help.
I have a small task for you, will PM
As a personal project of mine, I converted all weapons from Oblivion/Shivering Isles to Skyrim (except for bows, arrows and staffs)
The blood hasn't been done properly, but I don't care as it's a personal project.
If you want to merge it with this project, PM me and I'll send a link. (Or anyone who wants a link, PM me)
We have converted bows and arrows already, so yes that would be handy, would only leave us with staffs, if you could provide me the link, I could fix up the blood and pass onto Zilav.
Just posted the most relevant example of my work I could find to the CONCEPT ARTISTS UNITE thread in Skywind development. Let me know if there were any particular projects you wanted me to work on, if my skill set is up to scratch that is :)
I checked it out and that argonian looks amazing! honestly I would love to see you do some armor sets so what do you think?
also we could make a concept art thread for Skybliv for people to start posting their work on
Sure Rebelsize, I'd love to do some work on armor, but I thought most of the armor from Oblivion was going to remain unaltered apart from smoothed and enlarged meshes and textures? Would you like me to come up with some original armor sets? I came up with some kick-ass Alyied Welkynd-stone armor a while back that I wouldn't mind having another crack at.
Otherwise, what would you prefer me to do? I'm doing a bit of work for Skywind now as well, but as long as my workload stays relatively small overall I'll be happy. On University break atm so I can take on a bit.
I'll sent you a pm :)
sign me up for facegen letter E
@GrimWeeder DONE! :)
Hey do you need a sign for Skyblivion?
Hey id like to work on really anything you guys need, i want to work on a project and these are 2 games i love so if anyone could message me on anything who ever is "in charge" email me at firstname.lastname@example.org just get back to me about anything, ill be on here periodically.
Can't wait for this mod to be updated. I thought about doing Facegen; But I'm not nearly that dedicated.
im almost done with facegen letter e sign me up for half of the heavy armor helmets going to convert
If I take a letter in the facegen, does that mean doing all characters that start with that letter? Anyway, I'll watch some videos to jog my memory, and then I'll take one. Feel free to assign one but I'd prefer one with relatively few NPCs so I don't take too much at once.
Just wondering, once Skywind and Skyblivion are finished will you be able to walk freely between them?
