Hey guys! So I've been planning this for a while, but I lately am feeling the strong urge to finally go through with it. My goal is to create a full SC2 Cinematic-style series of videos (that maybe later can be compiled into a fan-made SC1 Film, if Blizzard allows), using audio and dialogue from the original 1998 game! Basically the videos would recreate the game's story through cinematics using character models and things like that.
I'm gonna need help with this. Firstly, I need help with getting my hands on models and assets, particularly with ripping the models, bones and all, into Blender, and if you can, into XPS/XNALARA, as those models I do know how to convert. I personally use a Japanese animation program called MikuMikuDance, however I am only using it because it is the easiest way for me to edit models and view them up close.
I'll also need help just in general for recreating models for units and things like that. For example, I'd love for somebody to help make an SC1 variant of the cinematic SC2 Marine, and so on.
This is gonna be a big BIG project, and I've already put a lot of work into it before I even announced it today.
Models I need ripped from SC2:
Zergling (WarCraft III Remake model)
Hydralisk (WarCraft III Remake model)
Probe (Maybe use an SC1 Probe portrait somebody made on here)
Interceptor (I think somebody did a fan-made SC1 model of this on here)
LOTV Protoss guards, warriors, and civilians
Convert Ops sets
All other available Cinematic SC2 sets
Miles Lewis (Heroes of the Storm model)
Michael Liberty (I may need help giving him legs and a back lol)
Zasz, Daggoth, and other Cerebrates
Urun (I think somebody on here made a custom model for him)
Models I need created or edited using existing models:
NOTE: YOU CAN MAYBE FIND SOME EXISING CUSTOM MODELS FROM THIS SITE. IF YOU GET PERMISSION, YOU CAN PORT THEIR STUFF FOR THIS, OR HAVE THEM CONTACT ME THEMSELVES.
SC2 Medic portrait model
SC1-style spider-mine (Or just port the SC2 widow-mine and I can edit it)
SC1-style Siege Tank
SC1-style Science Vessel
SC1-style Infested Terrans
SC1-style High Templar
SC1-style Dark Templar
SC1-style Dark Archon
Episode 1 "Magistrate" (Plenty of battlecrusier and officer portraits you can use for a base)
Episode 5 "UED Captain" (Plenty of battlecrusier and officer portraits you can use for a base)
Praetor Fenix (Zealot)
Praetor Fenix (Dragoon)
Executor Artanis (SC1 look, but obviously with fully grown hair cords)
Praetor Artanis (maybe use WOL model?)
And of course, EVERY BUILDING FROM SC1.
Anyway, I'm doing a lot of work too, so don't think I'm trying to make everybody do all the work or anything. i just would love some help! I'll be posting images of my progress in the comments! Just PM me and lemme know if you know how to port to blender or XPS, and if you are willing to help me make custom models! Thanks!
