New Fallout 2 animations (sniper, wakizashi, etc)

Discussion in 'Fallout General Modding' started by Josan12, Feb 22, 2008.

Should the player use one or two hands when thrusting with the sword?

  1. One hand

    99.7%
  2. Two hands

    0.3%
  1. Touquet

    Touquet Look, Ma! Two Heads!

    Ok, here's the complete set of the new Wakizashi animations, mostly in Madmax, with swing in Leather. It still needs finishing as the headband is missing in a few frames etc:





















    The dodge (E) animations are a bit lame i know, so i will probably do something better soon. I'm not sure whether to do thrust yet - i was thinking of replacing it with throw - in line with Magnus thrown modifications. Any opinions on this? Also, please throw in any opinions on the graphics as i'm looking to be finishing up these animations soon!

    Could you drop that white trail in the swing? You are using the Sledgehammer animation, right? It looked way better without that flash. Also, the Thrust animation of the Sledgehammer would be great for a Wakizashi - perhaps better than the swing.

    Great work BTW!

    Yeah, sorry man, I don't think the blade flash works for fallout, other than that super cool.

    Although it's mainly Josan's (cool) playground, I have to react on this: the naked female-slave would certainly be a great improvement for any project. Anytime, anywhere. :lalala:

    Marital problems, lies, creepy animations with shitloads of blood disappearing in somebody's vagina... Oh my god, what a 18+ stuff.

    And I'd ban you in Australia as well.

    Yes, i have to confess i may be letting some anime / comic book style influences slip by, and i agree it's never seen elsewhere in FO. I'll make a version without to compare and you guys can decide.

    This is a good idea i hadn't considered. I'll look into it.

    So can i get some opinions on the red headband?

    Because it's preview/test animation. Blood that is spreading on the ground is added in PS... Fucking multi-pass art making :? :mrgreen:

    Personally I don't like it, reminds me kamikaze from WWII, only sake is missing ;)

    I love it. I think it plays on the humor of Fallout a bit without being too overtly intrusive. Besides, I see headbands in Post-Apoc stories all the time, so it really doesn't feel out of place to me.

    I also like the blade flash. Nice work!

    Double handed makes it more unique and appropriate to a sword-type blade.

    Definitely two-handed. A wakizashi is short enough it can be swung one-handed, but you'll never have enough force to pierce through armor that way. (Unless you were a super mutant, maybe...)
