A Rare Request by DJ
« on: October 12, 2018, 08:28:57 PM »
Okay, we all know I rarely do this and when I do it's always a bit harder than normal so bear with me.  I'm wondering if anyone can convert the following mesh (just the one pictured, not the "tentacle form") and rig it to Syn's AOA_Morph or Texas Jack's Plastic_Man keyframes?  I don't know if that's possible but if so I think this might be an answer to a skin/mesh idea I've been contemplating for Herr Gummiband.  Not expecting it to happen, though, so if it doesn't that's okay too.

Mesh (Hyde Bohr) is here on dA!

So this mesh was fairly simple to import. it's pretty low-poly, and I had to alpha enable it.  The problem is all of these 'stretchy' meshes,  Tommyboy's Mister Fantastic included, don't actually 'stretch' the mesh, they are usually scaling in and out static meshes, or meshes with deformed properties.
Texas Jack's Plastic man looks like it will be the easiest, since it has a dodge_right static mesh, a dodge_left static mesh, and an elongated mesh on a different biped.
There are also extras like the big head, big fists, rocket for area attack, and puddle for another dodge I think.

You don't have to include the rocket for area or the puddle. And the biggest section I'm looking for are the hand size change, a few streched body melees, and maybe a streched out of way dodge - if possibie. The melee idle, run, and everything else can be normal male basic setups if you want - or something that fits with the idea of a scientist who rarely leaves his lab. Whatever you feel works and is doable, I'm cool with!

Must say, really wasn't expecting anyone to give it a try. So MAJOR THANKS already to you, DM!

Got to thinking a bit, the puddle might be easier to do as the dodges than the strecth ones. If my thought is right, you could probably skope the puddle piece from Plas and just remap it. That might be easier than trying to finagle the mesh to the strecthed setup.

If that's possible and makes things easier for you DM, go for it! I'm cool with what ever you choose.

Tell ya what,
I propose a trade, I'll re-rig and adjust the mesh 3 more times to get the appropriate animations for the Plastic Man mesh if you make a skin for this concept of Cable I saw on Reddit.
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
I was thinking it would work well on Renegade's Ultimate Captain America mesh in civilian clothes,  I would just skope on a new gun and change out the shield for a psymitar.
In the meantime, here's a male_basic version of Hyde Bohr: Hyde Bohr

Works for me. I'll pull up my Cap_Am_3_with_gun and get to work on it...might take a few days but I'll make sure it's good!

Edit: And as usual, once I get Herr Gummiband skinned, you'll get a copy of him too.
