Request for custom model

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has the time and desire to create a rather simple custom model for me. I've seen it plenty of times playing Thief 2 FMs and it looks to be a foot rest/small seat for noble areas. If possible it would be great to have multiple skins for different colors to go with it as well and I can't speak on behalf of the TDM team but I think it would make a great addition to the core mod as well.

 

Here's a picture of the item below.

Thanks!

I can do it. Apparently it's called an "ottoman". I'm thinking about making it openable.

 

Oh that would be cool an openable version, I suppose we could have opened and closed versions. Also an Ottoman.. huh that's a word i've never heard before.

 

Thanks for helping out man you're awesome! :)

getting characters to use the ottomans will be harder trick.

 

The way it would be integrated would be the same as all current seats. Currently to tell an AI to sit you just click a check box in DR and then it's simply a matter of lining it up which is the same thing mappers do for all AIs that need to sit on a chair/object.

For what it's worth, here's cushion textures from the EP +a tasseled bottom I just threw together. If you want it as Thiefy as possible.

Awesome! I've been making some decorative pillows and had little to go one, but this is perfect. :)

Since you had stated you had not heard the name Ottoman for the object, I assume you did not realize it is just a fancy name for a foot rest. ie Place ottoman in front of Comfy Chair™; Sit in Chair normally, then elevate feet onto Ottoman. This might require trying to combine the sitting action with the lay in bed action...I dunno.

@Springs, do you want to commit these to SVN or shall I..?

 

I'll handle that batch.

An ottoman can be a stool as well as a footstool, according to definitions at http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Ottoman

 

Back when I was in primary school, an educational broadcast included a song about an auction house, which featured the couplet 'What am I bid for this fine silk ottoman? / Wide enough to fit the stoutest bottom on.'

 

Edit: maybe it's one of those trans-Atlantic things? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Ottoman_%28furniture%29#Not_an_Ottoman_in_the_UK

Oh wow, this expanded quickly. U'm I think I messaged you about it Goldman, but I'm already modeling out a chair and ottoman.

 

Just giving this as a shout out so others know, but I'm getting to work on a high poly for a set. I'll be able to likely put in the most time this Wednesday/Thursday (since I'm working a lot till then).

 

But I'm working on something very close to this... http://office-turn.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Chesterfield-Queen-Anne-Oxblood-High-Back-Armchair-Leather-with-Footstool.jpg

Modeler galore & co-authors literally everything

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
