    Ill take a other look at the anims, but will wait until they are in game. In game can change a lot of things. Thanks for the feedback!

    Filmore had actually fixed this a few weeks ago, but due to how busy I was with the updates and some technical issues on my side, it took until now to get it installed.

    Thank you, Filmore!

  14. Thread: Ember EXE demo in General Ember Discussion

    Hi, glad to answer that. The exe won't be available except to backers, but they can stream it or upload videos and screenshots.

    Future milestones are coming and will have new exes that will have better versions as we improve the game and build more features. We always want to feature the latest we have. Each milestone is a separate exe reward.

    lol. I never "yelled" at you for being "overly critical". I stated that this contest is designed to welcome multiple points of view. For example, some folks see a name suggestion like "Sneazers" and think it's pretty great, other folks may think it's absolutely terrible. Both opinions are totally fine. Critical is allowed as long as no one insults another person just for having a preference that is different than theirs.

    Hopefully the end result falls onto one of the names you feel would work really well.

  18. Thread: Update: Geesuit/Character Concept Art Poster. 3D Prints in Production in Ember Art & Design Updates

  19. Grummz

    Grummz Administrator Ember Dev

    Most of you know I'm not into politically correct culture. The art is pin-up for pin-ups sake. The details we're taking into 3D modeling will be her geesuit, which is normally zipped up. Also, I like navel. Expect cheesecake here and there. Guys will get equal exposure. And, before you try, this isn't something you'll ever change my mind on :) For the navel!

    BTW, to work in 3D, expect a different face and different body shape. We are stylizing the male and female characters. You can chalk it up to the differences growing up on a different planet.

    Glad you like the suit. Yes, she's unzipped it for this, but it's usually zipped up to the neck.

    As for her expression, wouldn't you be thrilled riding in a THMPR's hand on a new planet? But don't worry, it's not the game's tone. This is more of a pinup poster.

  32. Thread: 3D Printing Tests and THMPR Rigging for Animation in Ember Art & Design Updates

  33. Grummz

    Grummz Administrator Ember Dev

    I've had the Zortrax m200 printer for a year now. It's a great printer. The real issue is that the THMPR is a very complicated object to print with all of its overlapping and nested panels.

    Plus, the game model of the THMPR doesn't actually need to connect those panels to anything. So when you try to print it as a physical object, it just falls apart.

    The good news is that I've complete the remodeling of the THMPR and have completed a production ready print. Took about 3 days straight working in zBrush to add keys (think Tab A, Slot B) and lots of test prints.

    Yep, the THMPR has a lot of tris because its a very large object on screen. There is some inefficiency with internal mesh that we can probably optimize down the road.

    As for the extra rigging, the plates do not unfold. They may move or we may remove those bones if they don't add much to the expressiveness of the MEK/A.

    Also yes, we need to fix the drill so it rotates independently!
