    Could we get permission to use the bald headed combat armor npc from Shattered Destiny for Cassidy? I was digging around and they already did extensive work on it (Idle animation, walking, drawing pistol/rifle, shooting, death animations etc...). That'd be pretty sweet, almost all the work is already done.

    Yes, you can. I have talked to Lexx(he is in my community) and its ok.

    I already PM'd Lexx for permission.
    He said it's fine.

    @ Paravel - go ahead and extract the
    FRM's from the mod folder. Check them
    over as im not sure they're all there.

    Unless someone really has the inclination
    to do cassidy in leather jacket i suggest
    we skip it, and maybe do it for stage 2
    (myron & lenny)

    I like the power armor of sulik but the shoulder is not seperate.

    I don't see any issue with the straps. It's something he's wearing, so there's no reason he can't change it when using different kinds of armor.

    I realized that metal armor has an armband on one wrist so I started altering cassidy metal to be symmetrical, what I ended up doing is giving him the leather armor arms. In the process I've given him a little personality. I really like it thus far

    Hmmm. I like your attention to detail. But
    to be honest i wouldn't bother. Apart from
    the spikes on the left shoulder the metal
    Hero should be flippable.

    Of course, if you want to do all of cassidy
    metal yourself its your call. But if so
    remember we are aiming to have this
    mod completed in approximately 1 month.

    Don't hurry guys, the more time you take the best your work will be, and you'll be even more proud of it! ;)

    Totally agree with what Makenshi said.
    Your doing some fantastic work and the wait for a quality final release will be well worth it.

    In general, projects can be done fast, cheap, or well; pick any two.
    We already have cheap (free), and the consensus is that we want it done well rather than quickly.

    Guys you do not know how much it takes to make an animation, i like the idea but josan say it already.
    (because he know how much work it is :wink: )

    I think the only thing Cassidy needs that they didn't do for the bald combat armor guy in Shattered Destiny is a spear animation. I could email their frms to whoever needs it, the whole .zip is 1.06 megs.

    Yes, this is true. But i dont mean to discourage
    Paravel from adding some quality details to cassidy
    metal: i just mean we need to balance time and
    ambition. Its true that we're doing this for
    fun, and as soon as you start using deadlines it
    seems like work. But i think its important to
    shoot for an approximate time-frame and not
    make things take too much longer than
    neccesary.

    Also, when im done with sulik leather, metal
    and combat i'll switch to help out whoever
    needs a hand.

    @ Paravel and Jotisz: in case you didnt already
    know - remember you dont need to do all the
    hero sequences for sulik and cass. Some are
    obvious such as the ladder climbing sequence.
    Others, such as the head-arm-blown off death
    sequence dont need to be done either, because
    as far as i know these characters have no script
    to call them (correct me if im wrong)

    I think that the head-arm blown off sequences could be the default ones if they are used considering the head will be gone (No need to customize if head is gone)

    Actually thats a good idea.
    ultimately we can choose
    which death sequences
    to use for these new armour
    sets.

    So, any opinions on whether
    we should do cassidy leather
    jacket?

    I think Cassidy in a Leather Jacket would be cool - bald head and black leather!
