You should get the LightWave 7.5 Character animation book by Timothy Albee…it’s the best book for character animation and Character rigging…


#102

:wink: cheers ‘proton’

i’ve built a Knight with Armor to sit on a horse, my problem is I don’t how to set him with weight maps… the result I keep getting is that the armor intersects other armor (I always get the same result with Clothes), and it looks messy :thumbsdow


#103

maybe use rotational limits on the plates of armor…that way they can’t cut into other parts of trhe armor…


#104

Thanks I’ll give it a try, I’ve ordered that book, I’m going back to basics.

I think I really need to sit down and try out some good tutorials instead of trying to figure it out myself
u’ll always end up missing the simply way of doing thinks that way :hmm:

Hehe thats very true. But the coop community is there. I can sometimes see over 30 coop servers worldwide on AllSeeingEye.

Maybe, but with one or two players

If you can find one server with four or more players you are lucky
