art to go with the model requirements


I'm willing to make some icons as I've had experience with that in Revelade Revolution.

Awesome! Did you see the ones I linked? What do you think about those? Perhaps they could serve as a base? It'd save some time :D

Yeah I think those would work good. I'm also thinking about the damage screen as well.

But about the icons. They seem rather small (I don't know for sure, haven't dl'd them). I'm concerned about resolution if they are too small and need to be enlarged. They might end up a bit more pixelated than we'd like. But I'm sure that thought has crossed your mind :)

I did actually already make a damage screen that I kinda like though I haven't tested it beyond shooting rockets at the ground point blank. For the icons there already is a default one in the /hud folder for you to take a look at to give you an idea of the image sizes, they aren't that large. Take care.

EDIT - I'm thinking about doing a coop/gameplay session on Thursday night, probably 8pm EST or so according to people's schedules. Anyone interested in joining?

@Arc: if you actually looked at the image on the site, you can download it as an .svg, which is a vector file. Vector files can be resized as needed without quality loss. You can use Inkscape to open them, then export them at a size you want. Here they are, resized by me. Look good?

@Mike: I like the co-op idea, but I may have cross country practice then, so I don't know if I could make it, would it be possible to record the video and post it somewhere so I can see what you guys did?

@stealthpanda: don't forget, you could possibly do single player bot matches as well. Also, for mapping in general, Quadropolis and the cube 2 wiki can't tell anyone enough about proper map flow and stuff, so I'd check around and grab a few tips on mapping for fps games.

EDIT: I've been trying to work on some models, but I found some characters on Blendswap that I think kind of reflect what we're going for. http://www.blendswap.com/blends/characters/cartoon-character-pack-1/. While we don't necessarily need to use those, I feel that they have the right kind of atmosphere for characters.

@CP: Gotcha. I never work with svg files so I wouldn't know that :P I learned something new today!

And yeah, they look good resized.

Thanks Mr. Pie for the model link, that's a cool site!! I was thinking these might work out a little better since they are low poly:
http://www.blendswap.com/blends/characters/boy-3/
http://www.blendswap.com/blends/characters/little-girl/

I'm not 100% sold on them but I'm going to keep looking :)

EDIT I kinda like this guy too, looks like he'd be fun to blast even though he's high poly it might work just fine!

Another EDIT:
http://www.blendswap.com/blends/characters/bge-2/

Haha we gotta make use of this somewhere:
http://www.blendswap.com/blends/animals/rubber-duck/

I think this could pass as a water gun, perhaps the sniper:
http://www.blendswap.com/blends/weapons ... nk-raygun/

Also chaingun, and an extra (for a waterthrower eventually?)
http://opengameart.org/content/steampunk-flamethrower
http://opengameart.org/content/steampunk-quad-shotgun

Another chaingun (obviously would need to have the bullets removed and maybe a watertank somewhere on it)
