HM3: Fantasy armor 3

I’ve just updated the Tops-MaleFantasyArmor set for HeroMachine 3, to include the following sixteen new items:

Let me know if you see any weirdness. These are all from user-submitted suggestions, which I am still working my way through. These were just the ones that started with a number, I haven’t even gotten to the “A”s yet :-/

    Pretty darm fantastic if you ask me!

  3. Awesome !!!

    I love these items. One of my favorite updates :)

    The only “weird” thing I noticed was this:

    I don’t think that yellow belt was supposed to be yellow.

  4. Cool, thanks Neon — patch applied and uploaded, that errant belt color should be fixed now.

  5. Excellent! Mech Pilots and Road Warriors forthcoming.

  6. I think those need to be used in a Sketch of the Day.

  7. Wow, that was fast.

    But I think there’s still a section of of color 2 out of place.

  8. I don’t see them up there

  9. Thanks Neon, check it now, extra bit should be removed.

    John, don’t make me come over there …

    Kyle, as usual, you probably need to flush the cache in your browser to see the new stuff. If that doesn’t work then you’ll have to wait a bit for your ISP to flush its server cache, then it should show up.

  10. WTF!?

    That was even faster!

  11. That’s what she said!

    Sorry, couldn’t resist, I am under the influence of “The Office”. You just happened to catch me as I was at the computer with the file up, Neon, so it was super easy.

  12. Yesss!

    That one made of belts looks like it could use some pouches…

  13. I’m excited to see some lamellar armor included. I was going to suggest some but I didn’t want to be presumptuous.

  14. i can see them now,thanks Jeff

  15. Looks good Jeff. I was a bit surprised you didn’t do what you did with the other ones in regards to pattern. I rather liked that the pattern for the armor only applied to one color. It made it look more realistic.

  16. Good point Jake, check it now — new items should have punch-outs in the patterns for color2.

  17. Looks great as always Jeff. I do have an armor related question while everyone’s on the subject. In HM2, there is this great set of armor:

    (the pole weapon and ‘underarmor’ at the pants level not included)

    While a lot of these items have made it over to HM3, there’s still a few missing:

    What’s missing is the helmet, leg armor and the bottom part of the gloves. Hardly a major problem of much concern at this stage in the game, but it brings up a couple of things I noticed.

    First off, I noticed that while the feet options include complete footwear as well as the individual pieces, but with gloves one only has the upper arm piece and then has to add the hand piece. It might be nice at some point to add a few complete glove options for characters where hand customization isn’t a must.

    Secondly, if you’re looking for any ideas to expand I think footware could use some more. A few options that go above the knee would be particularly welcome due to the fact that medieval soldiers often liked going into battle with a metal skirt for some reason.

    What started out as a comment turned into a wall of text, I apologize. Overall the progress has been exemplary and I look forward to whatever is coming around the bend. In the meantime, I’m curious to know what other people think about ‘sets’ of clothing and/or items.

  18. Thanks for the feedback, Saturn830. There are lots of sets still to be done, and lots of missed items I’ll need to bring over at some point. The amount of work to do is truly daunting. I can’t make any promises beyond the general “It’ll get done some day!” The specific armor you’re talking about is definitely one I want to complete.

    As far as having the gloves and hands combined, that’s something I struggled with at the beginning. The bottom line is, if you want to have items that can be put into hands, you have to have gloves separate. There’s just no other way around it. At the same time, separating “Feet” and “Shins” into two separate slots didn’t make a persuasive case, from the standpoint of having so many different slots it’s irritating. But, I might have to rethink that, because it’s ALSO irritating to have to choose Multiples on the feet to mix and match the feet, and to look at all these separate pieces.

    I don’t know the best way to go on that score.

    Fantastic!!!! THANKS JEFF!!!

  20. Love them all, but the patched-together sets are a special type of awesome.

  21. Oh my god! Jeff you have so much win :D

    Killer armor!!!

  22. Much better Jeff. I noticed that one of the pieces of armor patterns over where it shouldn’t.

    These are absolutely fantastic Jeff!!

    Fantasy Armour has been my most anticipated addition yet, and it is great to have these updates!!

    Keep up the amazing work.

  24. Awesome Jeff… just awesome!

    Can’t wait for the rest. ;-)

    Really nice! Just some stuff I want to ask.
    -As a lefthanded person, can you make some more stuff for the left hand category?
    -Could you please make some kind of bazooka/antitank missile for the backplane?
    -How do I upload my rendition of C….
    (you’ll have to wait and see who when I upload!)

  26. Crab, since all the left items are just duplicates of the Right items, I am doing all the Rights first. When they’re set in stone, more or less, I’ll swap them all out to the Left. In the meantime, just use the Flip button to put whatever it is you want on the left side.

    You can upload your image using any one of a number of free online image hosting services like ImageShack.com, PhotoBucket.com, the UGO Forums, Facebook, whatever.

  27. Great stuff, thanks Jeff!

  28. These all look great, though I’d love to see them altered for females to wear as well.

  29. I love it. Do you think you’ll add more?
