    Hi everyone, the Terran Carrier is finished, animation, effects and in-game helpers are all done here.

    The model is included in our assets mod, we'll release it as soon as we finish the new version of BLZ Enforcement.

    (If you need it now, please reply and I'll attach the assets below.)

    Yesterday I made a balloon, quite similar to the original design from the Metal Gear.

    posted a message on [Tutorial] The ruler of attachment points in Starcraft II

    Attachment points have special and strict protocols in Starcraft II, if you doesn't use them correctly, the model will have weird issues. This tutorial is a summary of the ruler of attachment points. I hope it can help you when you are using Blender or 3dsmax.

     

    1) You can only use the name in the list, custom names are illegal. (the list is attached at the end of this tutorial.)

    Example: Pos_Hill  is legal, Pos_DustinBrowder is illegal;

    You can't use custom names.

    Example: Ref_Attacher 01~19 is legal, but Ref_Attacher 20 is illegal;

    Example: Ref_Head is legal, but Ref_Head 01 is is illegal.

    Example: Ref_Weapon Left is legal, but Ref_Weapon Left 01 is is illegal.

    You can't add numbers at the end of the Attachment points unlimited, each kind of Attachment points has its own upper limit.

     

    2) Avoid duplicate names.

    When you added an Attachment volume, the relevant Attachment point will be created automatically.

    Example: If you add Vol_Target to the model, you shouldn't create Ref_Target, for the art tool will create Ref_Target itself at the center of Vol_Target.

    The Ref_XXX is equal to Ref_XXX 00.

    Example: If you have Ref_Head, you shouldn't add Ref_Head 00 at the same time.

     

    3) Special names should be used only at the specified situation:

    Ref_Attacher, this attachment point is used for taking control of the parent bone. For example, the tail of Viper, actor system needs Ref_Attacher to control the movements of the tail.

    (Btw In the beam models, at the end of each beam, there is a helper called "Attacher", Helpers with special names in SC2 can cover the original animations.)

    Ref_Turret, Ref_TurretY Ref_TurretZ, these attachment points are used for standard turret behavior in SC2. A standard turret unit likes siege tank has only one turret. At this situation, using these attachment points can conveniently build your own turret unit.

    If you want more than one turret, you can't use these attachment points. Instead, you can use other attachment points/Bones, and set their turret behaviors in behavior editor, each attachment point/Bone can be a turret point if you correctly set their behaviors.

    Vol_Shield (Ref_Shield), Vol_Shield is used to define the area of shield for Protoss units, it should be a sphere with Scale on X, Y, Z directions. Once Vol_Shield is added, the Ref_Shield will be created at the center of the sphere.

    Ref_StatusBar, Ref_StatusBar is used to define the health bar location of the model (if this attachment exist.)

    Vol_Target (Ref_Target), Used for defining the location that the missiles should hit and the impact effects should be played, usually it's not a point but an area, so Vol_Target is much convenient and common than Ref_Target when you are making a model.

    Ref_Weapon, used for weapon launch.

    Ref_Damage, used for damage effects, like the fire on the damaged buildings.

    Ref_Origin, located at the original point, used as the reference of a lot of events in SC2.
    Ref_Center, located at the middle part of the model, used as the reference of a lot of events in SC2, such as the Buff effects around the body.

    Ref_Overhead, located at over head location of the model, used as the reference of a lot of events in SC2, such as the Buff effects like stun.

    Ref_Hardpoint, used to attach other models, likes medivac carries the Thor. Ref_Hardpoint is the reference location that Thor attaches to the medivac. 

     

     

    4) Attachment Volume can only be special geometries, usually Sphere, cylinder, box and capsule, these geometries are scalable, you can check the art tool help documents for more details.

     

    The list of all legal attachment points in starcraft II (305 in total. This list was summarized in 2013 by Renee, so maybe some new attachment points were added later, but I still suggest that use the names in the list, don't use custom names only if you know they are legal in Starcraft II.)

    Hi, everyone,

     

    I just finished all stuffs of the real life. The last month was just both excited and hurry-scurry to me.

    My partner and I was terrible ill last month, we speculated that it maybe food poisoning. About two weeks we were suffering in low fever and diarrhea. That was really a terrible feeling.

    Meanwhile, My dream company gave me an opportunity of interview of being a 3D artist. The interviewers were very kind and it more liked a participation meeting rather than a serious interview. It's my first time of having an English interview, so I am not sure if I was good enough during it (and I am pretty sure there are many other skilled candidates). But it'll be so excellent if I can get this job.

     

    Anyway, I am now one piece again, and back to sc2mapster (and waiting for the final result.)

    I now start to do all the delayed works from the community. My apologize that it cost me so much time.

     

     

     

    I am going to finish this ship later. Hope you'll like it. :)

     Hi TaylorMouse, please take your time, I don't use this tools quite often. Please focus on your own plans if it needs too much of your time. And bring us cool model works.

    It's a simple key animation, not real dynamic effect.

    Love the sculpt, It's very cool already!

    Maybe you can add a gloss texture or more special strength to make the weapon more "metal".

     

    And I got some errors when using your m2 tool, the newest m2 files and skin files sometime can't work.

    In reply to Veratai:

     Yeah, I am a bit lazy on effects these days, too many other works have to do so I just used my death animation templates. It's cool but just as same as I showed before. (I know lazy is bad, but I just got too many things @[email protected])
    Here is the Rubber Duck, everyone loves it~
    You can download it from here: (Or the next version of Delphinium_Model_Patch_1.0.SC2mod maybe a week or two.)

    My team always releases our model assets. But we have a terrible internet link to America, So usually we don't upload them to sc2maspter or dropbox. Instead You can download our mods directly from Battle.net:

    Delphinium_Model_1.0.SC2mod

    Delphinium_Model_Patch_1.0.SC2mod

    All new assets will be added to Delphinium_Model_Patch_1.0.SC2mod once we make sure they work. All my previously assets are in the Delphinium_Model_1.0.SC2mod.

     

    But if you want to see/use it ASAP, here it is:

    I have spent too much time on designing rather than making models last 2 months, now it's time to embrace 3dsmax and art tools.

     

    But I still want to show one of my design here (which is failed...)

    Hi everyone, long time no see, we are working on a new game since May, but till now the process is quite slow...Maybe my team needs a break and shift the way of thinking.

     

    Today I just finished a new SC2 unit model, I am trying to imitate some Blizzard color and structure ideas (You can see some parts of it are similar to archangel.)
