Howdy guys!  I'm getting back to work on the DCUG, so watch this space for questions and requests if you're willing to help out!

First off, I'm toying with my options for Atlantean troops.  CB has some really lovely versions, but they're limited to the land because they aren't compatible with swimming keys.  I've also got Kssaints' really lovely swimming versions, but I'm looking at tweaking their keys to add some more options and flexibility. 

Are there any male_basic compatible keys that have rifle anims, sword anims, or spear anims?  I feel certain that there are and that I'm just blanking because I'm rusty.  Can anyone refresh my memory?

Okay, I decided to stop being a goofball and think a bit more out of the box.  I realized I was going about this wrong.  I was thinking of entire sets of keys rather than individual anims from the various male_basic sets.  So, I've found a pretty good ranged anim that works as a 'rifle' anim.  Now I just need to find good options for the others.

:EDIT: I think I've got good stuff for my swimming Atlantean troops!  So, now I need something else.  Is anyone willing to try to track down a good, clean-ish image of an Atlantean soldier (N52 or newer) and an Atlantean officer type?  I need some images for portraits, and Google is failing me.  I'd rather not spend my modding time paging through my comics, and someone could save me that time if they're willing to help.  :)

Well, I just saw that you found a bit of a solution for your keyframe issue, I was actually going to suggest using the "flying" and "hover" animations to replace the regular animations.

Howdy gents!  Can anyone give me a simple Green Lantern flavored green texture for an FX or two?  I've decided what I'm going to with the various alien Lanterns I'm adding is to give them the standard suite of powers and one or two unique, character-specific one apiece.  That way they'll have a little flavor without me having to reinvent the wheel each time.  For example, Medphyll, the plant guy, will get a green 'tree throw' projectile, while the aquatic lantern will get a green whirlpool. 

Also, am I imagining this, or was there a nice, 3D tree-throw FX somewhere?  I found a 2D one, but I swear I remember a 3D one someplace.

Is there something that could be used for a tentacles/vines effect on the ground for a stasis attack from Medphyll?  I feel like there's something that can be used (purple darkman, green bachite, or maybe the traps from the Pan episodes?), but I haven't looked at things in a while.

Howdy PG, thanks for the response!  Yeah, there's actually Eve's Entangling Vines direct.  He's got an 'Emerald Cage' crystalize swap power like the other GLs, but I have been thinking about something like that.  The FX seems like a natural fit, but I'm not sure what to do with it yet.  Maybe I should just turn it into the end nif for his emerald cage...

Ohh, has anyone skoped Kilowog to summon green melee weapons for attacks?  That seems like the kind of thing that might exist.

Thanks SA!

Hey guys, are there any meshes of baseball bats around?  I'm going to replace Hal's Plasma Sculptor summoned weapon (defaults to the green streetlight) with a giant baseball bat.  Same for any big warhammers, which I want to use for Kilowog.

My Nintendo Princesse's and Harley Quinn have baseball bats, hammers on the latter as well. Should skope from a make to female mesh just fine, at least the Harley one should, Princess has a specific body.

Thanks SA!  That sounds like it might have some potential.  I would love to see some of the GLs skoped to pull up weapons during anims, but I am actually looking for 'loose' meshes.  I imagine that someone with more skoping know-how than me could take the weapons off of those meshes and put them into new files, but I'm afraid that's beyond me. :)

CB, if you've got some loose ones lying around, that would be perfect.  Or, if someone can tell me how to create a stand-alone mesh out of an object like that, I can do it myself if necessary.

Also, I remember someone did some skopes of GLs some years back that had them summoning different weapons during animations.  I remember a John Stewart summoning a rifle in partiular.  Anyone know whose those were and where they are?
Found it!  Sick Alice's work, and quite great!

I'm still looking for stand-alone bats, swords, and hammers.

If no one else gets it I haven't done that in awhile but do know how, just need to know what specific objects I'm working with. If it helps you can pretty much dig a comparable object out of the game and skope the weapon into it, like a light pole for example which most in game characters can already pick up and wield. I also thought of this and probably late but the ingame thug has a baseball bat as well.

Or for an alternative and maybe easier to skope scroll down and download the Polearms pack by Val.

I found a few Baseball Bats, and I should have plenty of swords and Hammers to choose from.

Do you want traditional Hammers, like the kind you would use with nails, or are you looking for more of a weapon type Hammer, like Harley Quinn would use?

As always, you guys are just freaking awesome.

I had completely forgotten about the old NPI weapon-pack, and it is EXACTLY what I was after (thanks SA!).  Everything is all nice and bounding-boxed and set up for me.  That covers the hammer (I was after a warhammer type thing for Kilowog, and this is perfect) and some various other weapons (I'll give each GL a different one!), and now I can use a sword and a baseball bat.  Thanks to SA reminding me that I can just copy an object from one mesh onto a stand-alone object mesh, like the streetlight, I should be able to create those on my own.  Sheesh, I should have thought of that!  Ha, I guess I'm rustier than I thought.

Ohh, CB, I remember those weapon packs you did.  Where are they now?  Have they vanished into the Yahoo Group void?

:EDIT: Well, I spoke too soon.  I cannot for the life of me get the darn baseball bat to line up with the streetlight properly.  Anyone willing to give this a shot for me?

I'll send you a PM with a Link for them. It will also include some (maybe a lot of) unreleased stuff.

You can send it my way, but I can't make any promises right now. Between work and school, I am drowning. But if I can squeeze it in, I'd be glad to give it a try.

Thanks CB!  What a fantastic set of resources! 

Don't put yourself to any trouble, man.  I'll send it your way, but no worries if you can't get to it, my friend.

I figured it out!  I tried a different bat, and with some finagiling, I managed to get it to work.  Now Hal summons a giant baseball bat with which to whale on enemies!  PG has agreed to green-ify the textures, so I should be all set.  Thanks guys!

Alright guys, here's something different.  Apparently my computer somehow ate the python script that is necessary for the ghosting mesh fix.  Can anyone send it my way? It's the ffvt3rskinpartition.py file, I believe.  Weirdly, I have the exe, but not the py file.  I have no idea what could have happened to it. :wacko:

Urg....so, I found that I had saved the install files, but I get errors when I try to install them.  I get notes saying that certain key values can't be created when installing the partition section.  This is getting quite frustrating. 

So, I've tried reinstalling all the different stuff that comes with the fix.  The first two seem to go okay, (repairing Python itself as the first step) but when I get to pywin32-217.win32-py2.7, I get this error message at the end of it:

Quote
close failed in file object destructor:
sys.excepthook is missing
lost sys.stderr

And when I try to run the script, it chokes right away.  Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

Also, anyone willing to field some ghosting fixes for me in the meantime?  I've only got one at the moment, but I'm sure others will eventually show up.

Still no improvement on the ghosting fix, which is really annoying. 

Anyway, I've got a new one for y'all.  Has anyone made a football player?  I'm thinking I might make a GL construct for Guy Gardner to summon, and that seems rather fitting....
