This Zorak looks great! Brago, Moltar and Tansit would be easy to skinning. (I would like to learn how export meshes)

Thanks Dean! Good to hear about another Blue Falcon coming too!

I'll post a screen shot of some of the choices for blip and you can pcik the one you want to skin.

The Zorak will be a little difficult to work with due to the pose - especially depending on if the hands can separate easily or not.

For Moltar, I though Human Bomb 69 would be a good choice for the skinners to work with.

Dr R - I did a very thorough walkthru on importing years ago. It's still on site, but not as useful since the screenshots are missing. Luckily, Sick Alice is hosting it on his site intact. Take a look and see if it will help you. I also did a part 2 not to long ago, and its on site, and should help with some of the more uncommon problems with importing.

Dean,

I had difficulties with finding some good monkey meshes, and then some of them wouldn't export, so I wound up with 2 for now.

I was able to get a third one working, not sure about the skinning, but its more cartoonish.

Yes for Moltar I had in mind the Humanbomb. Brago and Tansit are similar.

Figured out the UV problem for the 3rd Monkey - I had to go thru Daz 3d to Milkshape to Blender to Nif to get the proper export.

Dean - Sending these over - they are unrigged as in the PM, and at present are all for FF while you mess with them, but conversion to FFvt3R should be simple. Some of the textures are high res so you may want to knock them down.

DR R - importing isn't bad once you get the hang off it. The hardest part is posing to match the mesh, and setting up the vertexes to the armature so it will animate. A high poly mesh can take a while.

Benton - I'll look at the Ant, but I'm going to look at the Pan mesh to see if his legs configure to Zorak's. I'm also thinking of giving him some weapons, so maybe a male_basic_gun, a taskmaster variant, or Tommyboy's trek_t since I've worked with it before with my Star Trek imports, and it has a hidden pistol and rifle animation.

Suggestions for the monkeys? I'm thinking either 1)just male_basic  2) A gorilla or Grodd set, 3) a Nightcrawler, or 4) a Toad since he has a hopping motion.

Below is the corrected Monkey 3. He's still a bit blocky, but as smooth as I can get him

I have those, but completely forget about them. Ill' take a look.

Your Igoo doesn't look to bad in that respect either (and great overall, of course.)


Also, I just, finally, got around to checking Daglob's Jan. It looks very good for an 'incomplete". Besides putting a jetpack on the back, not sure what else it needs.

I also found a Jonny Quest on a male_teen 14 mesh. No readme on it. Maybe Daglob?

Thunderbirds are go!  I had talked about doing Gerry Anderson imports way back on the first page, and was motivated to finally start on them. Thunderbirds was one of my favorite shows back when I was a kid.

All these need work, resizing and being rigged. They were all a lot more difficult to get into nifs than I thought they would be. To do, there's still a Thunderbird 2 without a pod, the pod itself, the Mole, and FAB 1. I also have meshes for Lady Penelope, Scott and Virgil to try to import. The original mesher talked about doing all the characters, but they never appeared.

After that, among other projects, the other Anderson shows.

FAB!

Sometimes its the simple things..... I was wondering why some of the textures on the imports were showing up, but not the others. I had forgotten that, while other formats aren't limited like nifs, nifs ARE limited to textures in a res of multiples of 2. Changing some of the textures to 512 x 512 from odd shaped ones enabled some of the missing textures to show up - not all, depending on the uv, but some, and they already look a little better.

So a few few people have mentioned some alternate skins for the monkey if it get done and animated. Besides Blip, there's Beppo from Superman, Nkima from Tarzan, and Gleek from the Superfriends,  that might be good additional skins. I've done the super powered version of Monkey from Dexter's lab, but the normal version might be a choice. Any other monkeys out there?

I've tried doing them, but never gotten them to where I felt I could release them. I should get my desktop running in the next week, though, so maybe...

Dean - I had forgotten about Mojo, thinking mainly of Silver/ Bronze age. Mojo, Gleek and Beppo, thinking about it, all have a cape, so I would probably rig the 3rd monkey to something like male_cape, and then skope out the cape for Blip if needed. Mojo would need his helmet added, and Blip his jetpack. Probably a few different skopes instead of a one size fits all solution.

For the first 2 monkeys, I'm going to look at some Nightcrawler meshes to see their kfs - it one of the few I can think of with a moving tail. If not, I lke the way the Igoo moves and I might try that.


DG - It will be good to see you skinning/ skoping again. If you can't get it to where you're happy, I'm thinking of buying them to see if I can import them.

This site, has all 3 plus the Impossicar for less than 5 dollars - a much better deal than the first.

https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/miniatures/figurines/the-impossibles-collection

Blender is supposed to be able to work with stl files - the files used for 3d printing. Trying to get them imported in and exported out is something I haven't done, so I might try with a random free file first.

That might be down the road a bit though.

Started work on the monkeys...hopefully done this weekend. For Monkey 1 (and probably Monkey2) I picked Texas Jack's Toad from the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Its got a crouch, some leaping, a walk, and a flying with the arms in not too bad of a position; most of the animations I'm looking for.

For Monkey 3 I picked Gren's Martian Jonn Jonzz. It's got a walk animation and a fly with the arms back. If Dean wants  to use Monkey 3 for Blip, the cape can be skoped out I assume. I also might do a version with a helmet on top for Mojo Dojo.

The Nightcrawlers and hero_with_tail didn't seem to fit, nor did the Beasts or the Venoms/

If anyone has some better suggestions, I'm listening. The kfs need to have a walk and a fly with the arms in a "non- superhero" position like the two above.

I thought I was working on Monkey 1, but it turns out I mistakenly was editing Monkey 2. Not that important but a little unexpected.

Turning a four legged mesh into a two legged mesh was more difficult than I thought it would be...six hours later I think its about as good as its going to get.

Edited the body shape a little, and rotated the tail up and curled it a bit. The neck, chest and hip areas are a little off (and were a lot worse before major editing), but it animates well on TJ's Toad kfs with no issues. Wouldn't export properly for FF, so FFvt3R only.

Thanks to TJ if he's anywhere out there for the base mesh/armature and the kfs.

4 poses - Idle 1, Idle 2, Fly and Melee Idle 2.

Thanks Dean,

Truth to tell, I'm not entirely happy with it, but after tinkering with it for hours and not seeing much improvement, decided to say 'that's it."

I'm working on Zorak at the moment and its going along a bit better. Because of the weird legs, everything is tied to the left and right thigh bones to keep the bend in place. The long neck, forward head and wings throws things off a well. The hands being crossed will require some tinkering as well.

With Tommyboy's trek_t it animates well with most actions, but for some, it freaks out in a pyschodelic show for some reason. He should be able to pull a pistol okay, but the rifle kfs are part of the freakshow.

Hopefully a working release tomorrow.
