    Thanks for the update.

    This is small beer compared to the fiasco of Biblical proportions that was Aliens: Colonial Marines. This shit happens in the industry all the time. Look at what happened to Human Head and Prey 2. Money does NOT equal intelligence or responsibility.

    If you actually read it, it's not an apology, so much as admitting that it was a trainwreck and trying to explain how it came about. What he seems to be saying is that somebody decided to use 'out of the box' options and auto-everything for the facial animations. As every digital artist knows, default settings are something to use as a base, and not to be relied on for any kind of final work.

    One thing he says is that they had a 5 year dev cycle for the game. So, in 5 years, nobody spotted that the animations were a train wreck and went in and fixed it?

    Targeting game devs personally is really bad as it won't be criticism, but people will - guaranteed - fly off the handle and behave like assholes. We've all had enough of gamers looking like overly-entitled, angry, basement-dwelling, woman hating, 14 year old psycopaths. Saying that, the blame for this should lie with the animators art director and the company director, who should have seen what was going on over the span of half a decade and stepped in to put the ship back on course.

    At the end of the day, though you guys all seem to be on this gamergate thing, I think it's much more likely that the whole thing is the result of incompetence and stupidity, not any SJW/gay/lesbian/feminist agenda.

    im sure itll come out awesome if you do!
    your skills are amazing and you shouldnt let yourself get demotivated by people wanting a 1-1 copy.
    imo something doesnt have to be at all, as long as it looks goods and the changes you made make sense and make the item as a whole look even better then it originally did :D

    ... i also havent done this at all a couple times. few times i just threw away the original design and completely re-designed an item from scratch inspired by references from real-life equivalents of the items.
    and i too noticed people didnt reply as much to those items as to the 1-1copy items i did.
    hope though you'll some day make another quake monster,
    im sure itll b...

    yeah i get what you mean, about people wanting something that is 1-1 copy of original item. people dun seem to get very excited at all if someone makes something and it isnt 100% authentic, and they will nag quickly if someone makes something and it isnt exactly the same as the original.
    i personally dun mind it though if something isnt 100% exact copy, and with the items for drake-m...

    ... like the original models, but just with more polys. He's even got one of them to share the UV map of the original mesh!
    So basically you have to hobble your own work so that you are spending a lot of time 'creating' something that is completely en thrall to someone elses stuff, stuff that was produced 10 or more years ago.
    That is really not what I want to ...

    It was Psionic who offered to do the Hell Knight. I think he had a commercial project on suddenly, but I'm not sure of the whole story.
    The problem with any of these things is that most people just want a straight 1-1 copy of the sprite/original model, but just in either 3D or more polys. Look at Capnbubs models. They have really set the community on QuakeOne on fire. They loo...
