As you probably know, Savage XR 1.0 provides the possibility to replace pretty much every stock model used ingame by players, with custom/unique ones, with purely cosmetic function. Until the custom items shop is going to be implemented (at an unknown date), the way for clans to obtain such ingame items is by contacting me about it. I would love to assist with making entire outfits/uniforms but since doing that takes a lot of time, even for a professional modeler (unlike myself
), we should start small and work our way up.
1. Armor "parts" (models) that can be replaced: helmets, shoulder pads, belts, leggings, bracers, boots, shields, weapons. As for breastplates (a.k.a. body), we can only replace textures, sadly. Making and rigging new ones is A LOT of work.
2. Unit features: model, skin and a special model called "permanent", which can be used from level 1, for features like a beard, or an axe stuck in the head, or a lizard tail, stuff like that
3. Squad models: Officer flags skins, squad flags/armbands skins. These are models which cannot be replaced for others except upcoming NSL winners. Customizing the textures - possible (Flags requests HERE
have only 1 way to obtain them, at the present time: by winning competitions hosted at Newerth (like the Duel Cup).
Given the limited manpower we have (me
), for the time being, and the FPS performance and loading times issues, only NSL Clans
are currently able to obtain and use unique items ingame, as they are the best way to make sure the least amount of items is used by the highest amount of players possible. All of them are granted the use of 1 or 2 such items, for now, and I invite them to provide me with SERIOUS AND WELL DOCUMENTED model suggestions which i will try my best to produce in my free time. I reckon a combination like shield+weapon, or helmet+shield, would be the best things to start with. Unit skins are reserved as awards for competition winners!
Right. As far as specs go, not hindering the game performance is paramount. Regardless where you got them from, high poly item models and high resolution skins (like unit skins, flag cloths) will not be accepted. Obviously, racist/offensive items won't be either. I reserve the right to alter such items for them to meet the performance expectations.
However, fun clans with a good amount of members are allowed to use custom flag cloths (128x256px), as long as they have a high-quality design, most importantly, looking like a flag cloth or using such a template. I know i'll become the most hated man alive, if i'm not already there yet
, but I will not accept weirdly looking billboards or otherwise looking out of place designs (no solid color backgrounds, like black, and no green and blue backgrounds allowed).
If you can obtain such models or textures from elsewhere, all the better, if they are low poly and high quality enough, i'll assign them to you and thank you for not having to make them myself
. All i need is for you to confirm that you have the author's approval for use, as i will be removing them in case the creator files a claim of unauthorized use.
