HM3: Sleeveless tops

At the urging of the much-better-than-me-at-matching-things Mark Shute, I have added about a dozen variations to the items in the TopsMaleStandard set that consist of vests with the sleeves removed. I need to add a TopsMaleSleeves set to complement this, allowing you to swap various sleeve configurations in and out.

  2. The Icedaemon

    Purely out of interest, what are the chances of there being a Venetian masquerade set of items (or at least masks/headgear) installed in the near-ish future?

  3. I don’t even know what that is, so the odds are pretty low :-/ Post a link to some images and I’ll see what I can do.

  4. I guess Icedaemon means something like this:

    And I just thought of something, Doomsday spikes/bones. Fist spikes, elbow spikes, knee spikes, chest spikes, back spikes, eyes spikes, chin spikes… that guy has spikes everywhere

    I don’t know where would they fit though, maybe in the “Bits and pieces” category or each one in a different category.

    Jeff, do you think you could add more gloves for the different arm types. All ther current gloves will only work for one arm type.

    By the way, I won the Modern Warrior contest everyone. I just found out recently. I turns out the congratulations you won message got put in my spam folder.

    My character was will graves.

  7. I have also come across the same bug hofter pointed out, I’ve also seen that happen on weapons too i.e. katana.

    I’ve discovered a bug myself. It’s difficult to describe so here’s an image of it.

    http://www.freeimagehosting.net/image.php?d60ae41180.jpg

    As you can see, an item has be chosen, but it says “0″ for the amount of items. I noticed that the item cannot be deleted (sometimes) and no other customizing can be done with the specific item. The only option is to refresh the browser.

    I’m not sure if you’re aware of this bug Jeff, but I think I can recreate it if it helps.

    For instance:
    - I choose a head and color it.
    - I turn on multiples and add any face and color it as well.
    - I click on the existing head and add a different head.
    - When I try to delete the first head, it wont let me.

    I discovered that I cannot edit/delete any other item within the same set (i.e. heads). I can return to faces and add/delete/edit as normal.

    This bug does not always occur, but I felt I should bring it to your attention Jeff. I hope this helps.

  8. i was useing alpher today and i was useing 3 patterns items and when i added the 3rd itewm it unmasked the items i already had. also the tech headgear is not in the slot boxes its above them slightly in the above boxes

  9. Jeff,

    This off the shirt topic but would it be possible to add more of a variety of Swords to choose from? Say perhaps the beast master sword?

  10. I have a problem masking 2 different items with the same pattern. I can get the second to mask only 1 out of 20 times…very frustrating at times. But overall I love HM3!

  11. Paul, eventually there will be sets of items like swords you can load up that will have tons of options.

    I haven’t had any trouble using the same pattern on multiple items. Anyone else seeing that?

    Now, you can only have one Pattern or Mask at a time on any one given item. So if you have the first Body loaded it can only have ONE pattern on it at a time. That’s normal.

  12. What I was trying to do was mask the star pattern onto the Flak vest in the modern tops and a helmet in the headgear. I can do one or the other but not both. I would click on the vest andn it would allow me to do it. Then I would pick multiple pattern and add another star pattern and click on mask and then on the helmet and it would undo the vest masking and I would have to erase both and start over.

  13. Are you using the star pattern that’s just a pale white in the “Patterns” tab? Or the star pattern you load from the dropdown list along with Headgear and Body and such?

  14. from the drop down list.

    Also one more issue I am having. After I am done designing my picture I strecth him out to look beefer. However when I save to JPEG he looks like the default size. I even tried locking the resize button butit still saves back to default size. the same thign happens if I click on the head shot button.

  15. I’ll have to check into that Paul.

    Hey Jeff, I have gotten a lot better with Heromachine 3. I started off kinda rough with Modern Warrior. The new features with heromachine 3 help especially the transform features and I am happy you put in a large varity of greyscale colors.

    Heres my winning entry for the Modern Warrior.

    Now heres my updated character using HM3.

    http://i648.photobucket.com/albums/uu205/LoneWolf6155/ScreenHunter_14Apr032227.jpg

    as you can see big improvement

    here are a few close ups

    The biggest problem I still run into is messing with the layers. It’s time consuming and easy to make a mistake. I don’t know how it’s possible to change that though. Please add more insignias, what you can accomplish using the transform tools with them is absolutely amazing.

  17. Hi Jeff, Here’s another picture of the error described by Tim above.

    http://picasaweb.google.com/ricardo.m.almeida/Stuff#5320741012607707858

    I’ve run into it a couple of times too, but I can never duplicate it exactly. Notice that here the interface doesn’t even put the controls for the body anymore it’s as if it became a permanent fixture in the background.

  18. Jeff,

    While we are talking about bugs I also noticed that once and a while objects will get stuck where you can’t delete them. Next time it happens I will try to take a screen shot of it.

  19. TigerGuy786

    Hey Jeff,
    Do you think you could make a wrist computer kind of thing? Even something as simple as a few random buttons and something that is obviously a screen would be great. Thanks for the application and all your hard work!

  20. I’ll add wrist computer to the list, TigerGuy.

    Thanks for teh bug report, guys, I’ve added that to the bug list.

  21. One more request. Would it be possible to ad more Star WArs type armor? Like maybe a boba fett style helmet? Or will there be copyright infringement issues?

  22. @Paul: Yeah, copyright issues preclude a lot of that kind of stuff.

  23. I was just curious since you have Storm trooper armor and a wookie head in HM2.5.

  24. Those are items which might LOOK like Storm Trooper armor and a wookie head but that’s just a similar coincidence. Ape-like dog-man crosses aren’t that uncommon and hey, armor’s armor. But Boba Fett’s helmet is pretty unique. Copyright laws are finicky, you can get sort of close with a generic but not TOO close.

  25. There is an open leather jacket in HM 2 and a jumpsuit in Modern Soldier and you don’t taken in HM 3.

  26. LoneWolf6155

    I have an idea. When I was working on my character, I used modified square and circle insignias to create a mini tactical scope for my rifle. What if you added scopes and laser sights that you could add to any gun?

  27. LoneWolf6155

    Oh and maybe silencers. In my first post I’ll show you what I’am talking about.

  28. LoneWolf6155

    I mean second post sorry.

  29. LoneWolf6155

    Wait my post is missing sorry to bother you. shutting up now.
