    Just browsed through the .frms, and hey, this is truly amazing! Do you plan to make it with different armors too? (LJ, LA, MA, CA...)

    This new type of critters is very impressive. I'm curious about the way you did it? I noticed the Big Guns animation is not similar to the original critters' one, and I thought you may be making your critter with 3D before turning it into 2D...?

    I'm planning to make LJ, LA and MA armors for Ms. Blondie and Mr.Black Long-Hair, it will enough to get two new most interesting heroes. In case of, I'll make CA for Mr.Black...

    Answer is "yes, I use Blender to get 2D sprites from 3D models", you can find more in this thread.

    My bad - new playable characters don't need new combat armor sprites, of course.

    Good news - Soifran already made the male black CA (here.)

    Keep up your great work!

    Very good stuff! The poses are almost the same as the originals. :ok:

    You must make the other armors (including LA mk2)!

    On a side note, blondie girl seems to wear a much bigger brassiere than her regular black hair equivalent isn't she?... If you decide to make the other armors perhaps it would be a good idea to reduce that area a couple of sizes, eh? :wink:

    Wow Rain man, good job on the blonde girl. Though I have to agree with x'il's comment above, and I have one critque of my own. It seems like the colors she is rendered in are darker than the standard male / female hero NPCs.

    Ok, I made a comparison picture:



    Maybe it's just the skin tone making her look darker overall? The colors on the suits look almost the same. Either way, great job!

    Rain man, superb work on the blond girl. :clap:
    I have one request though :)
    Are there any chances to get her without the yellow 13 sign on the back of her jumpsuit? I would like to use her in my module but in another Vault so 13 wouldn't kind of fit.

    to Fallout1FTW:
    I have it's 3D model, of course it's not a problem to take off the number 13 from her back, but it'll take some time...

    to all:
    All of promised Blondie's armor types are done (corrected vault suit, leather jacket, leather armor and metal armor + a bonus - leather armor MKII)! Tomorrow I'll post here a download link. Hope you will be nice surprised :-)

    Finally a new playable female character! Honestly can't wait :D

    (And I'd also appreciate the one without "13" on the back :p)

    Ok guys, you can download full set of Blondie Animations from here. You can post any questions/suggestion at our "Olympus" forum or, maybe, here...

    Next new hero will be... Long-hair Black Dude! :wink:

    After-next new hero - Red-head Girl :D

    ---EDIT---

    Oh yes, you must understand, that I can't recreate all blondy's armors because "color is too green"/"LA MKII must have black glows"/"MA is not enough shiny" or any else matter... Sorry, I can't spend my time for 1000 tests to recreate 100% Fallout's armors ore movements...

    Thanks .Pixote. In fact all of site arts (as well as game arts) are created by our artist of genius, not by me. Hey, you know him! His name is Ursa :D

    Even moar ? Dude, you are realy insatiable ! :D I will make Blondie_Vault_Suit_Without_13, Mr_Long-hair_Black_Dude and Red-head_Girl, but it will not be done today (you understand what I mean).

    Of course Mutants Rising can use this animation set, I'm waiting for your project for long-long time...
    Megamod also can use it [updating allowed project's list :deal: ]

    That's some excellent work Rain Man, but I can't really get it to work myself. Don't have much experience with modding FO2 so I just made a HFR00S01 folder and dumped all the .frm files inside it, but it seems to give the standard buckethead model ingame even though the new style is selectable. Do I have to rename all the .frm files or something? :(

    Hello again guys,

    It's been a while (you know what a bitch life can be :P ). Anyway, Rain man, I've recently tested the blondie girl in game a I must take my hat off again to the amazing work you have done. The girl in all her armors is perfect, Fallout-y and awesome. There's two issues I'd like to comment, though:

    -Due to the first part of the game (the Temple of Trials), another animation set of the girl is needed: the tribal outfit. I feel somewhat bad for pointing out this, since you have done all this work freely for us, and now by saying this I'm kind of making you feel forced to make still more. Sady, the the tribal outfit is necessary to become a full usable Fallout 2 playable character, just because of that small part of the game. The good part is that, for Fallout 2, she only need the weapon animations corresponding to the spear. Anyway, make it only if you really want and feel like to. Please, don't feel forced to it.

    -For some odd reason, the animations corresponding to the girl falling knocked down or death (in both directions) displayed in the game are those from the default darkhaired heroine. I've tested those animations from the Blondie set in Frameanimator and they are perfect, both themselves and their animation names, so I presume there could be a problem with the Hero Appearance Mod itself regarding female PCs.

    In any case, your astonishing Blondie girl comes to confirm what I presumed about you technique being one of the best sources of new Fallout critters, and I want to both congratulate and thank you again for your selfless, awesome work :clap: (oh, and I've also seen your other work for Olympus 2207, and I'm really looking forward to it)

    -----------------------------------------

    By the way, guys, I'd also like to tell you I've actualized the first post of this thread with some new Vault Boy (Girls in this case) pics:

    Hope you like them.

    By the way, is the black dude officially started by someone?

    I wanted to make Vic a black dude, but it's a lot of work, perhaps someone else is already doing this.

    It was long ago, but it's postponed by now. No clue how many frames have been done so far. Lisac should know.

    You start from scratch? Because I am pretty sure that at least some frames have been done already.


    But anyway, I personally would like it more to see a new female hero than black dude. :>

    Mr. Black Dude will basically be the last of the male hero critters - after him there's only girls left. :P
