    Default Resource Works by paleologos

    Hello to all.
    Those of you who have been following my posts in the threads and forums of Stainless Steel and it's submod Titanium are aware of my efforts in skinning and modelling.
    My latest work of 12th Century Knightly Men-at-Arms has come to fruition regarding the lod0 infantry model and the skins for the mercenaries and the French.

    This is the their presentation.


    The 1st Picture presents the caps with the gilded bands or the head bands.

    The 2nd Picture presents the faces and the face protection pieces, those would be either nose guards or face guard masks.

    The 5th Picture -and the final one- is the presentation of the leather straps, the purses and the daggers.

    Now, you may notice that in-game the troops do not have the belts as they are presented above.
    As a matter of fact some of them don't have a belt at all but they do sport a sash instead.
    They all, however, have a baldrick for their scabbard.
    I will not make a separate presentation of the sashes because I skinned them with the same textures I skinned the undergarnments.

    The 6th Picture, panoramic views of the updated shields as they are so far:

    And this is where you can download them:


    12thC_Knightly_MAA_v4
    This file contains:
    01. A lod0 model for 12th century heavily mailed West European (Catholic Faction) swordsmen,
    02. A lod0 model for 12th century heavily mailed West European (Catholic Faction) macemen,
    03. Three sets of skins for figures, French, German and Red-&-Gold for the mercenaries and the English and four sets of skins fot the attachments (Red-&-Black for the mercs), plus normal maps (of course!).
    04. Four corresponding sets of unit sprites.
    05. Four corresponding sets of unit cards.

    It is my intention to make skins for the other factions as well, make the mounted version after I bring the mounts to a comparable level and add lower lods sometime but time is sparse.
    It is open source, use it for your fun, feel free to modify it and include it to other mods but it would be obscene of anyone to sell it as their own work.
    Do not try to convert to dds as there will be introduction of a significant amount of error - if you want to process the textures contact me by PM and I will e-mail you the .tga versions of the textures.
    I also intend to make the mounted version after I bring the mounts to a comparable level.

    Also this is another piece of work from me,

    Highlanders_Rabble&Archers&Kerns

    you can view screnshots of them throughout this thread.


    I hope you download them, and try them in-game.

    Stay in touch and let me know what you think of them.

    The screenshots below are from my take at the first tier of ERE units, the levies, peasants, spearmen, javelineers and archers.

    First the Byzantines' peasant levy:

    In this post I will be presenting resource parts for models.
    1st: Barbute helmet, a very rough go of mine, no textures, no UV mapping, to rigging, just a resource for modders.
    I will probably return to it to make it complete but I don't know when.

    i just imported them , great variaty on shield textures the mask and the faces! the only think i would like to mention is that the chest of the knights looks a bit bulky and maybe over-shiny cause of the normal textures. Keep it up!!

    Everything in your remarks was intentional;
    the detail,
    the variety,
    the bulkiness of the chest -was the only way for me to simulate larger musculature without increasing too much the polygon count-
    and finally the normal maps that were modeled with intention to achieve results like those below:

    Thanks for your encouragement, I do intend to keep it up, plenty of ideas bouncing around in my head, just not enough time.

    I saw the belts now, honestly if (Or rather when) this mod will be released with all the potential it has and all this detail I can easily see it, (And I would personally recommend it) being used for history projects or in the same way the guys from the battle documentary used Rome total war as their graphic materiel.

    Anyway, I also downloaded the files and will check them out sometime soon.

    Thanks people, it's nice to be appreciated.

    Btw, I am currently working on some clothes for the French version.
    The Frenchies won't be ready too soon as I have 12 slots to fill just for the undergarnments and then I'll have to do the shields.
    For the time being, enjoy what's been completed.

    I don't think I understand what you mean by "classic" and "modern".
    Which is what?

    I modelled my 12th Century Knightly Men-at-Arms after the artistic depictions in the Osprey books for knightly troops of that period.
    I did not do any original research about them, just trusted the research of Osprey series authors.

    It seems that the closed helmet did not become a "must" for knights until the 13th century (and many of them never truly stomached the visibility limitations).
    Consequently, it was that time that they start to used heraldry decorated tunics worn over the mail.
    During the 12th century they rarely donned anything on top of their hauberks.
