Well, in the wake of Vincent fever, and considering the player model is done, Marshall and I have decided to give a Vincent weapons pack a go. This will include the claw saber, Death Penalty, Cerberus Rifle, Cerberus Machine Gun, Cerberus Saber, and anything else we can dig up. I may also be tempted to actually weigh the face on the old Vincent so he talks, but we'll have to see about that. Anywho, I figured I'd get this started and Marshall and I will post our progress on those weapons here. If anyone has any ideas or requests for Vincent weapons, please post them here as well and we will take them under advisement.

Here's the claw saber so far: clawsabertx2.th.jpg The difference between this shot and the one in the Vincent forum is that this one has the normals flipped (thanks for that little tidbit Marshall). I'm using the gold textures from the Cerberus as a base and the gold_spec as well. I just have to futz around with the tags a bit and it should be good to go. I'll post some screenshots in game once I have it all set. Comments and suggestions welcome.

P.S. - I do like the Cerberus heads you made for the saber Marshall (from the Vincent thread), they look on point! Looking foward to seeing what else you've got in store. Once I get this done, I'll start on the rifle.

I hate the texture on that, but I do like the model... mostly... The thumb seems off somehow... I cant quite name it at the moment, but it just seems odd.

Two words...Stunning...wait that's one. That's pretty much what I had envisioned as well, Marshall! Excellent Work! Its really coming along nicely and it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I was actually thinking about putting the Cerberus detailing on the blades, but I dunno if that would play out right with the heads being at the hilt. They should probably go on the handle instead, like Noen suggested. Let me know if you need any texture support on that one. As far as the Claw, I it seems fine to me, maybe its just the shots I put up...but I think its in pretty good shape, and I think Marshall did a good job on it. I'll get it in game and see if that makes a difference.

It's prolly just the positioning of the shots, yeah.

My complaints as always are almost everyone's work "It needs smoothing and better skinning" However, I'll take your word for it that the shots aren't giving it it's full glory. Otherwise, I might cry. As is it looks like a gold\white texture with noise added with a motion blur, while a solid technique.. doesn't quite work with things that are meant to be next to chrome.

Points taken Ryo...maybe I should take a different approach. I'll dig up the Vincent left arm file and see what I can do with it. Maybe with the added shaders we can make it look similar to the one he has at least shine.

Well, Marshall's a little busy these days, so he's allowed me to attempt to finish the Cerberus Saber, and the Death Penalty. Here's what I've done so far with the saber. cerbsaberbladesnp4.th.jpg I would like some suggestions with regards to what the thought about the saber should be. Are we thinking katanas in a straight line like Kadaj's sword? Or like the one you see here? Or maybe 2 slanted and one at a 90 degree angle? longer blades? Anyway, let me know what you all think we should do from here.
