Much as I do have some respect for Mini's work, I must agree with Hirman.
I agree with Hirman, if he says he made it himself then he made it himself, I see no reason for him to lie about it, and if I was him I definitely wouldn't appreciate you accusing him of doing something that, for some reason say he did, it does no harm at all anyways.
Nobody says Haps didn't edit base models. Thing is many meshes were made from scratch and some had nicely reworked uvws (I liked how he remapped legs for example).
This model seems mostly from scratch but ahsoka (or however you spell it) definitely wasn't. Never said I was an expert, it's just annoying when I used to see so many people go apeshit over models the person didn't even make when people like almighty, me and a few others would make something starting out from scratch people would pick it apart and bash it for it not being 100% perfect.
[offtopic]Schro, I really like what you did with Jerec and I have a few player models that need good textures made...[/offtopic]
Oh and to add crits, the feet are jacked, strangely shaped. His legs are oblong rather than being round and it still looks like his ass is in the front, the way it protrudes out. There also seemed to be an awful lot of polygons just doing nothing to contribute to the shape of the model overall. You should post wireframes from now on so that you can fix these things, renders in max are a bad way to show a game model.
Hirman;4983137mini, really, what am I denying? it is the simple fact that YOU could import the thing and look at it yourself. but, no, you just come on to these forums and slam modelers who actually, make their own models. just because you prop yourself up as some kind of "expert" , using the term loosely, on what is edited and what is from scratch. the more you keep bringing it up the more people think you dont know a damn thing because you dont back it up with anything. and the closer to a troll you become.
Mini, I've seen Hirman work 1st hand and hes good at what he does. Everybody is entltled to their opinion and I'm sure Hirman, like other modelers on these forums, appreciates any advice & info somebody may have as long as it conveyed here in a constructive manner. As the co-creator of the new Forcemod III series called FM3Av2 (www.PHRGEmpire.com) I've evaluated hundreds of models released over the years. Keep in mind that even the best rated models (by different authors) I can always find something that I don't particularly like. I was sorry to hear that others were picking apart your creations that you had put your time and efforts into when you were trying to contribute (some people don't have any class anymore). Hirmans models will play a starring role in the latest installment of our latest release version (FM3A2.4) that shows we respect his modeling skills and look forward to future releases from him. Hirman keep up the good work! Venomous Heart
overall the model looks great ^.^ tho there is alot of streching on the head and along the sides of the model which makes the skin on it look rather bad in some places as well as some oddities here and there also photosourceing is genrally not the best policy when it comes to skinning just my 2 cents lol =)
lol I get the feeling that minilogoguy's bashing hirman because hirman's models' defects weren't that bashed as minilogoguy's models' defects... if that made any sense... so he is kinda picking on hirman on revenge because he wasn't very apreciated even though he did pretty good models...
life's a bitch minilogoguy, if you wanna be popular you must do popular stuff ( model popular chars in our case lol )
on another note, all of hirman's models are from scratch and nice looking.
^Sorry but I stopped making stuff for JA years ago, I just try to give people who are trying to get stuff in game advice. But like I said, he shoulda posted wireframes cause the model sucks, flat out, now I know why Lee made that bad anatomy thread.
I don't know why in the world you stopped making stuff for JKA, because let's face it. Your vehicles are some of the ones with the best quality. I still think that your V-wing was your best job ever. Mini, you could do so much more, but you refuse because you claim that JKA sucks... But don't you realize it's people like Hirman, you, Almighty_who, Angelmapper and Ockniel, who bring life into JKA? Just mere examples of people dedicated to their work, to make it a better product, to get what we -really- paid for. To get the good stuff! Don't you realize that if you got back into modding, re-ported all those amazing models of yours, and contributed to a few projects here and there, how much more of a respected member you would become? The guys working on Taris Refueling Hanger T-31 could really use your sith fighter model, you know. Whatabout that AT-RT of yours? There's alot you can do, but refuse to share. Why? Why did you give up?
