[WIP] Female base model project

Recommended Posts

Can you explain the future work flow?  I've lost track on where things go from here.  Is it something like this:

- Finish refining animations and bin'ing them for in-game

- Send off "it" to Zee and then she puts her textures/models over "it"?

- We benefit

 

Is it something like that?  Just trying to understand where things go after you've solved the huge issue of new animations/skeletons.

I provide basic animation set and configs for them and improve them as much as I can. This means I probably wont go through every single one (~2000 animations not counting the cutscene ones) but I'll try to fix the most glaring issues. (Also I dont have the time to do everything)

Zee provides the first new female character -> Jenny for the project and I put her in game and pack with the rest of the addon

 

The community can then build their own characters using the same animations and also improve them with better animations when needed and those I can add into the main mod for everyones benefit.

 

Also I'll provide the skeleton and dummy mesh (the bluish one in the latest video) that can be used to make sure new characters are right size and fit the skeleton/animations.

 

Basic idea is to have everyone use the same animations and improve them as a community.

I will also be opensourcing my future models (aside from jenny as she's a mess) for people to modify and adjust as they see fit, so there is at least a base female mesh for modders to work from.

It is impressive, indeed. (the size/ dimension of the work, what the script does)

Hope this is still a thing, it looks great! Thanks for the work you're doing here! As someone who likes to build missions on the side i'm excited to see the possibility of females in Arma 3.

Dun-Dun-Dun-Dun-Dun-Dun-Dun-Dun
 

 

Tested out some stuff with a facial rig I recreated from Arma 3 samples a while ago. It needed a bit of adjustment but from the test results Im pretty confident I can convert A3 facial animations for a new female head skeleton too!

 

Also I am still kicking though have had some trouble with excessive procrastinating.

Little more refinement on weighting and the underlying rig. Lot of guesswork involved with this but it looks like it could work.

Hi, i just created an account just to answer this. Well, huh, how is it going ? i actually have ENFORCER and FEMAL3 addons... but i dont like it very much. I do pictures of altis and stratis blah blah blah but enforcer skins are weird and femal3 skins dont have long hair. I see that your skin looks good. and the topic didnt had news since may. So all of this, just to say : How is it going ?

 

patience

Well before a moderator slaps your fingers for making new posts just to ask how a mod is progressing I'll tell you its going slowly. :tounge:

Mainly because processing the thousands of animations is tedious and I've just had other things I've been concentrating on. Its not forgotten, just waiting for a right time I get back on it.

Yeah the lack of female added to Arma 3 was kinda disappointing since it is based around 2035 where females in the army is most certainly a thing. But no females is kind of lacking in life I guess you can say. Than again this game has been out for a while and I would of guessed that if they were to be added they would of been done by now but this mod is going to make things a lot more lively. Just hope that we can see a good variation of clothing for them when it is released because with the Enforcer mod it is lacking when it comes to trying to have them in something like the marines or whatever. But good work so far and it's awesome to see this still going.

Adding different skeletoned characters like smaller framed woman has technical difficulties that probably have not been cost effective to overcome on normal develepoment of Arma.  That said I have been unfortunately quite slow with this project as it is a lot of work to do.

I am still very much at it though!
