I'm working on an FM and could use some help in the form of some models for the project. I have in mind a puzzle in which the player encounters a statue, one arm holding an open book, the other arm upraised and the hand formed to grip a handle of something that is not there. On the ground are four objects, all made from stone matching the statue - a sword, a hammer, a shepherd's crook, and a caduceus. Through environmental clues the player is meant to determine the correct object and place it in the statue's hand. I would need models for the four objects and the statue, and ideally four additional versions of the statue, each holding one of the objects. The statue should be a man wearing a robe; I can give additional information via PM to avoid publicly spoiling the puzzle. If anybody is available to take the time for this it would be greatly appreciated.

You don't need four additional versions of the statue model, you can just place the corresponding object at the proper position. In regards to the objects we already have hammers and swords, so those could easely be reskinned. I am not sure about the shepherds' crook and caduceus, though. Regarding the statue itself we have quiet some of them, so it may be worthwhile to take a look at them if you haven't already. Statue_torch_left or statue_torch_right might be fitting models, although the hand that could 'hold' the book looks the wrong way. However, it might be easier to change the orientation of that hand then to create a whole new model, and depending on lighting etc. it may not even be noticeable. In addition it is possible to keep an ai model in a static pose and reskin it either.


On a gameplay note:


FM's: Builder Roads, Old Habits, Old Habits Rebuild
WIP's: Several. Although after playing Thief 4 I really wanna make a city mission.
Mapping and Scripting: Apples and Peaches
Sculptris Models and Tutorials: Obsttortes Models
My wiki articles: Obstipedia
Let's Map TDM YouTube playlist: ObstlerTube
Texture Blending in DR: DR ASE Blend Exporter

End of shameless self promotion.

I was thinking that too, or maybe even having 6 objects and 4 statues. Of course, there will be consequences if the player places the wrong object...

The shepards crook could be made from a thin dense patch cylinder, then exported as an ASE model. The Caduceus might be able to be done

the same way if you can't get someone to make it as a model. It won't be as refined, but it's better than nothing. :)


Here's a shepards crook made from patches converted to func_static. Just export it as ASE model in script menu n use it

as a model, at least until you can get a model made. :)
