Long shot, but was a CR-20 model like the one AceMastermind was working on in this thread or the one MandeRek mentioned in this thread ever released? Both posts are way old but I figured I'd ask anyway :)

Ok so I was messing with my side mod and implemented ggctuk's DC15A Blaster Rifle and used it to replace the standard clone blaster rifle, the only problem is that it is off center and doesn't fit in the clone's hands properly in 1st or third person.
I was hoping someone with some spare time or the knowledge could fix that or direct me towards a means of doing so myself.
(No the -scale option doesn't fix it either)

Odd since the mesh was made to the stock rifle's scale. Can you send a screenshot of the issue?

Sure thing, now what you should notice is that the issue is not very apparent in 3rd person:

However in 1st person it makes me sad because the model looks so nice:

The same thing happens with the other gun variants too, my theory is that its just positioned too far forwards and slightly too high up, maybe the origin on the stock rifle and this mod are slightly off from each other.

It's possible, but TBH I think there's a bit of an issue with stock animations for the rifles anyway when it comes to the FPM views. That seems to be more of a need for an animation change than anything else.

That may be the case, but it seems a bit much to make custom animations, maybe moving the origin further towards the rear end of the gun would be a quick fix.

Hello everyone,

I need some help. My insistent little brother keeps asking me on Discord if I can make a mod to make the battle droids black and red for him. I haven't the slightest as to how to create side mods, so I thought I'd turn to you guys. If it's not too much trouble, could someone quickly put together a CIS side mod based on these example images I've made with him? If this would be a particularly time-consuming thing, I'd be willing to compensate someone a bit for helping me out. I'm kind of a sucker for this kid. As far as I can tell the designs aren't very complicated, but again, I'm not knowledgeable on modding.

He wants all droid models to have a black base, with the Super Battle Droid and Assassin Droid to have red accents as pictured. He wants the regular accent colors to remain on the other droid models, just with a black base, so for example the Assault Droid with the red shoulder highlight or the Engineer with the yellow highlight, but the body itself is black. He wants to be able to play with them in space, too, so the pilot and marine are also requested.

Here are the example images the two of us came up with together: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iK2RO ... EmJ2Z0dI9b

Any help would be greatly appreciated. With as many Battlefront II things as he requests of me these days, I'm considering learning how to do it myself.

Thanks so much guys.

Commission - SWBF2 Halo Mod - Space Battle Needed

Postby mstrduff » Fri Nov 01, 2019 12:16 am

I am working on a project with JimmyAngler to update his Battlefront: Halation mod. It is a mod that incorporates the Halo universe into SWBF2 game play.

I have no mod experience and am handling planning, including outsourcing things to move the project along.

While JimmyAngler works on the main maps, weapons, and unit models, we are looking for someone to join the team and work on space battles for the mod.

Your name would be credited in the mod, but JimmyAngler would have full rights to the finished product and full control of its public release.

This is a commission based project so you would be paid for your work.

I would need to see an example of a space battle mod that you have done (or a vehicle mod in general) and if approved we can establish your responsibilities and your pay for achieving the assigned tasks. If the process goes well we may ask to work with you again on more space battles or other vehicle based additions to the mod.

Thanks

Can't do a paid mod, that breaks about 100 rules here, game EULAs, etc. Property owners will absolutely shut that down.

The mod is free to play. Why would I not be able to compensate someone for using there time to make me something? I didn't see anything about that on the rules page. If you could please point out where it talks about it, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Because it's an owned IP. You'll find difficulty finding any major sites that will support paid modders unless it's a totally original idea. It's very much a point of contention with businesses, so I will say that even if we haven't written it so succinctly in the rules that Gametoast doesn't support it.

Fair use state copyright material can be used if it is trans-formative, non-profit, and doesn't cause harm to the marketability of the original product which is why Microsoft was okay with the mod community using their models in GTA 4 & GTA 5. All of our models are from scratch. I doubt EULA would have an issue with us modding their concepts into a 14 year old game. As for payment, if the site doesn't support that, that's fine. I also accepting volunteers with modding experience who would be interested in working on a space battle project.

Thanks

To be clear, I'm just trying to protect the site from any possible harm. I don't have anything against it personally, and really publishers have become more relaxed with it in recent years, but I don't own the site, just help run it. So I have to err on the side of caution.
