adding new weapons to TMW.

Post by 1234 » Mon Aug 09, 2010 2:03 am

as i said earlier in another forum topic, there need to be more weapons. whats with all the knifes? why no axe or crossbow or normal sword? :? if you looked up "midevial weapons" on google you would find another 15 new weapons for the game. its just an idea, im not the dev. hope an update comes out with some awesome new weapons. keep up the good work you guys! ;)

Again, the reason why we haven't got any weapons except knives and bows is because the playerset hasn't got the animations for it. We are searching for an artist to add a swing and a trust animation to it for years.

Then all equipment sprites have to be edited to include said new animations.

I am sorry, but I posted a two handed swing in the graphics department, which was ignored for like 2 weeks, except for len.

Then i was directed to a post, http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopi ... e&start=75

Only to release that it has already been done. So why waste effort in something that has already been fixed. And since there was zero feedback, except for you len, I dropped the subject.

But given all that, the player set in the above topic is horribly broken.

If you would care to specifically tell me what you specifically need, I can try to get make it for you. Just understand that changing the perspective is not an option, for reasons that are very clear.

The problem is that a dozend of people started a two handed swing animation but noone bothered to actually finish one.

Either shading and details are missing or there aren't all directions.

are the playerset in the above post good enough to finish. I am willing to help you out of this, but you need to tell me specifically what you want done.

Below is the most completed player set expansion.

Problems with it: Female expanded set needs the white removed, needs to be properly aligned and polearm attack frames added. Female needs to have its side animations mirrored. Both need to have the magic casting frames fixed to where the arms are consistent (either up or down). The pole in the polearm attack needs to be removed. Both need shading consistent with the current player-set.

Others have also voiced what they don't like about it: The one and two handed attack frames might not have the feet positioned in a way that is desired, the magic casting frames themselves might not be ideal. There might be more criticisms that might cause one to pause on completing it, which is why it never gets done.

I was going to put time into this starting next week, but if you are volunteering yourself to fix, I could put my time elsewhere. I could also collaborate with you on completing it, depending on if and how you would like to work on it.

Player set discussion has moved to graphics development.
