Hey, I am unable to post in the recruitment forums, or anywhere else for that matter so I figured I would just post here. I was looking around for X-Com related stuff and found Xenocide, after looking through the forums for a couple days I decided to see what you guys needed in terms of 3D modeling. Following are a few models that are not listed in the Assets list yet, so I figured I would just whip up a few renders at least for concept art. I can clean them up and give you the 3ds files, or just redo them with a little YafRay in a higher res if you want something shiny to look at.

The xenium crystals, I like the green the most, but the transparency on it did not work for some reaon.

I also did one of an Alien grenade, but now I see you already have a concept and model for it.

I use Blender3D and borrowed the textures from here and other random websites.

They are looking pretty good.. :)

Send me the model to upload them to the labs, we will see which one ends up in Xenocide...

Regarding recruitment, read docs.projectxenocide.com for details.

BTW, Welcome to Xenocide.

Yeeaahhhh, the application process is way too confusing, I was just planning on trolling the forums looking for what I could re-render for you guys. I was just going to do that until you either started throwing rocks or throwing projects my way.

Regardless, here the 3ds files, I do not know if they will work or not because I cannot open them in blender... I am not sure if I have to have a special plugin for that or not.

Come on, it isnt that difficult... send a mail to me and the Artwork Department leader with samples of your work (that you have provided some already)... Vaaish will review your submission and give me the Ok. I tell Stewart and you will receive a PM that you have to read on its entirely (I am serious about it) or you wont be able to get Recruit board permission (to be able to post in the departments) - we will know if you dont read it B).

It isnt difficult at all ;)

Well, to be honest, when I first read it I had been awake for about 30 hours straight with little to eat, I am sure that if I went back it would make more sense. After that I browsed the forums and started rendering whatever looked like fun.

Blender is a bit finiky with transparencies. Check the alpha value and then check to see if ray transparency is enabled undet he mirror transp tab. Finally check your render settings to see if ray is selected in the panel next to the render button.
Past that play wit hIRO or look up thevalue for the material you want.

on a side note there is an error in teh blender inport 3ds script. Check the old elysiun forums for the code fix for it.. or wait for 2.42

Hello,

I'm new here so please forgive me if I post this on the wrong forum.

Well, there's been a bomb design that I liked a lot but couldn't remember from where. Most Probably TTFD.
So next thing I need is a 3D program. I tried Blender but it says I don't have Phyton and the program crashed. (tried 3x and still crashes) I tried to look for Phyton but I am not sure what it was...

So I downloaded anim8er and build a quick one. Here's a pic of it.

Sorry if it's bad. Learning the program at the same time. (took me an hour to build this)

Supposedly the more time you punch the red button, the more turn the LED blinked.

(PRESS AND HOLD BUTTON FOR 2 SECONDS TO RESET) :P

Nice work! The design is definetly from TFTD, though not really a grenade... :) (http://www.xcomufo.c...ig/shot0049.png).
What you need for Blender is this :)
Keep smiling while dying

Of course I have gone mad with power! It would be completely ridiculous to go mad without power!
And no, this is not a quote from the Simpson's movie, I want it on paper, that I actually wrote that quite some time before the movie came out.

Thanks Mad. For some reason after a couple of restart, blender works just fine. And damn it's complicated OMG . I prefer to stay with anim8or for now :P

Haha. I see. Well they both go BOOM anyway :)

Here's another one hour work. Guess what it is :P
