    This one looks much better and the blood pools are fine, all it needs now is a splash of blood when the head gets blown off.

    I have a somewhat related question; are new death animations possible? or are you going to overwrite one of the default ones with this custom one for this particular critter?

    that depends if timeslip is able to add additional death anim numbers/letters for the numbers,if she can then i wont over-write,if she cant i will have to and it will be a specific critter(metzger),hoping she can,i added it to the wiki

    thanks,i think this is o.k. too,going to try to make the splash in a 3d editor,don't know if i can,never tried 3d before

    cheers

    edit : is the box in this file the size of FO2 critters?

    Depends, i used 3/4 size of a human mesh. I also upgraded the template with additional cameras.

    ^The splash is perfect, but the body animation stops for a second in the middle and that looks weird, maybe remove an extra frame there and re-position the splash throughout the sequence.

    EDIT: you could extend the animation a little by adding the first frame of the AA animation as the first in the sequence and then re-positioning the splash as i mentioned above after removing the extra frame.

    There was a head explosion animation in Fallout 2. There is much less blood, and the effect was more convincing...just saying.

    No keep your design...I was just pointing out there was a nice head popper amongst the animations, its a shame there isn't one for every critter in the game. :wink:

    These look pretty good. My only comment would be that the blood pool developing after the body has fallen should progress away from the head and not pool around it like a low flow venous bleed might look (some of the side views make it look as if the blood is running along the shoulders, which looks quite weird to me). The carotid arteries would be projecting blood directly away from the body under pressure. Another idea would be to have bits of brain fly away. There are cases out there of the brain being lifted out of the skull and thrown several feet by a self-inflicted shotgun wound.

    Regarding decapitation, you would have to come up with different animations for head blown off (as is case here) and head chopped off. (and possibly head bludgeoned off.)

    Hey all. I'm glad to see critter remakes are up and running.

    I too have revived my years old dream to have a Vault 13 redhead as the hero character. Things are moving slowly as I only have enough to time to do a single set of sequences a day. But perhaps in a few years it'll get done.

    Leather jacket comes first:

    Good job, Aqui! I hope you are aware that Ghouly89 is also working on the redhead hero character? Check up with him so you don't do double work! Maybe a separate "redhead female dude" thread should be set up...?

    Hey Ghouly when we start Mr. Blackie I was hoping we can put a little team together, that way we can finish the dude quickly. I will have the PS actions ready, so that should help reduce that amount of work required, are you interested in being involved - it will mean Miss Red Head will have to be put on the back burner for a while. I figure we should all work on one armor type at a time - Vault - Max - Leather - Metal - it feels more satisfying to complete one set, before starting the next. All up there will be about 50,000+ frames, so its not for the faint hearted. After Mr. Blackie's done there will be 4 player characters to choose from, and the people can't ask for more than that.... :wink:

    Alright, I'm game :look:

    Just hate to see Mrs. Red head sitting on my computer with barely anything done for her :shrug:

    How about a different FEMALE critter? :wink:

    I am aware someone was making a redhead critter based on the original blackhead.

    If ghouly's making a vault13 based redead we should team up.
