    Bald dude player model.

    I always thought it would be kind of cool to have the bald haired character model as your player character. I obviously know next to nothing about fallout modding. I just thought it would be kind of neat and i'm throwing it out there. Maybe you could expand on the Cassidy models from the armour mod in the restoration pack?

    So, i think now i have enough time to make this!

    But i need some help from the community. First of all meybe Josan can make like he do with the long hair dude a wiki post, where users can check the status of this project.

    And i need also to know what is finish yet. So lets think a bit together:

    Primitive Hero Set: In my opinion its already done by this crazy scripting polish guy for his mod. Anyway we need just the basics, cause you will get the suit after the trial of the arroyo temple. So let us say its done. SO I NEED THIS PACK!

    Vault Suit Set: Hm, nothing done yet. So it's my work. I will do an "own" style like some seen already (not only bold also armless suit. Looks really cool in my mind.) SO DON'T METER Mr.Wolna will do that!

    Leather Jacket Set:
    Oh with help of the amazing x'il its nearly finish. Just some animation left. So i hope x'il will be so nice and bring his work to end The animations which already finish i have already from him.

    Leather Armor Set: Nothing. So my Work!

    Metal Armor Set:
    No idea! About it. I think some critters are done in the NPC ARMOR MOD. Tell my what finish, and what not and send the pack if necessary.

    Combat Armor Set:
    I know my fellow from FON Lexx do some for his mod Shattered Destiny. But i didn't know is there more finished and what is still to do! So please tell me if you can and send me the pack if necessary.

    i thinks the other we do not need. but maybe i will make some experiments with it, for a own look, but thats not important at this time.

    So you see, i need your help guys and when i have all the thinks i need to know then i can finally get back to my modding roots XD

    Because on Friday is my last workday and i will stay home without job for a long time ^^

    So thanks for your patience and support and sorry for my horrible English.

    With kind regards,

    OK, Mr. Wolna, you're on :ok:

    I was already thinking about finishing up the bald dude in leather jacket...he's missing 3 melee weapon animation sets plus the climbing and the throwing i will finish them. :wink:

    I have the bald head primitive made by ArekBalcerzac, it's the complete A set, but it requires a lot of fixing because it's kinda messy...but i can fix that :)

    Now, regarding the metal armor...i see some problems there...same problems i have encountered while making the long hair dude: the shoulder plates are bigger than in the other armors and they would get "overwritten" with the new head...specially the metal spikes on one of the i think that armor would require a different work method...

    Good thinking Mr Wolna - much of the bald dude (i would guestimate about 35%) is alreday done which is great!

    In fact - i will suggest to the long hair dude team that we make the bald dude while we are making the long hair FRM's. It would save a little time to

    1) paste in the long hair head and minimize the frames as you work
    2) when they're all done, create the new HMHIPxxx FRM
    3) then bring up the frames again, restore the original image and paste in the bald head
    4) make the HMBALxxx FRMs???

    So maybe you can also use this process, Mr Wolna, and help us make the long hair dude and the bald dude at the same time?

    ..... No-one likes the female dude?? :(

    I guess it might be because they only have experience with modifying the male sprites. But there are alterations that could be made. As there are the Bald Dude and the Long Hair Dude, you have the Red-Head Chick and the Punk Hair Chick.

    Think of the variety, people!

    Why not finish one first? What next, someone wants to start one-armed dude next week?

    :P That's actually not a bad idea: your character has an already crippled arm and it gets a critical hit on that same arm...BAM!! you loose the arm completely...your character then starts loosing HP on a regular basis (like when being heavily radiated) until you or an NPC performs a succesful skill check with first aid or doctor on the "bleeding" wound were the arm used to stop loosing hp, of course, but you still have only one arm... until finally you pay a lot of money to a doctor NPC to perform a limb re-attachment surgery, you would need to have the severed arm in your possesion of course, or else you would need to go and "hunt" for one from a about that? :mrgreen:

    ok so what we have:

    x'il is making the leather jacket and the primitive set. I think you need also the spear animations and of course fix the basics.

    the leather armor and the vaults suit its my work.

    whats about metal and combat? i mean the already finished frms? from lexx and the NPC mod. Can some one send me the finished work?

    @josan maybe a wiki post? :) about the lonh hair dude, is the wiki post actual so i can see whats already done and what not ,right?



    and do not worry when i finish the bald one nad i keep the source (psd) i can easily put the long hair dude. I think the method i am using si very fast and flexibel.

    Lexx does have a point here, i think. I was about to say the same thing. I would never suggest that some very well intentioned mods fail (:o ;) !!), but - maybe we should all focus on doing the long-hair dude and make sure it gets 100% finished before adding another massive project?

    Having said that - why not use x'il's leather pants tribal for the bald tribal dude? I think it could work, and more FRM's are done. ....

    Mr. wolna, regarding the long hair dude, yes, what you can see on the wiki is what's actually either finished or being worked on. If you are gonna help us with that you can work on the v13 jumpsuit...

    As for the bald head dude, i don't see the need to make combat armor (i like the combat helmet look) and the metal armor like i said above is going to require some special treatment...

    I finished the climbing and throwing animations for the leather jacket bald dude, here:


    and Throwing:

    ... who, me? :)

    Nah, it would look strange for the player character to be wearing leather pants and gloves on Arroyo when the rest of the tribals aren't (unless he's "evil")... :P

    I think the leather pants bald guy tribal looks absoloutely fine. I think it looks better personally.
