HM3: Pants!

I’ve just uploaded the “Legwear-Male-Pants” set to HeroMachine 3. It’s broken out like the Spandex I put up the other day, with the complete item, just the hips, the right thigh, and the right lower leg. Here’s a sample:

Let me know what you think. I’ve got room for probably another 4-5 complete items (to be then broken down) if there’s something egregious missing.

    I must be to quick, it’s not there.

  2. Jeff, I absolutely LOOOOOOVE this new set. Have just one little question:

    What happened to the crotch/upper leg/lower leg breakdown of this pant?

    I know it’s “similar” to the previous one, but that pattern is so unique….

  3. AWESOME !!!

    Those items are pretty cool :)

    And I was wondering the same thing as Worf at #2.

  4. WHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
    FANTASY ARMOR LEGWEAR!!!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you Jeff

  5. I don’t want to get all technical with you guys, so if my advanced coding terminology is confusing, I apologize, but basically with regards to that item I “screwed up” as we say in the industry.

    I drew it, then got up from the computer to do something, and when I came back I forgot I hadn’t broken it down yet. Oops. I didn’t notice till the end when I went to add all the preview items. The numbering sequence is screwed up now too, I had wanted all the same items to be grouped on the same rows.

    I’ll fix it tonight.

  6. Captain Kicktar, you’ll probably have to flush your browser’s cache for it to show.

  7. Glad you’re excited about the updates :-)

    I tried to do some matching fantasy armor for the Tops already there, like the peaked set with the secondary color inscription on it. If there’s a big one missing you were hoping for, let me know.

  8. Jeff, you’re talking with a computer engineer here. So trust me, I’m VERY familiarized with that particular terminology.

  9. The Hebster scores another one! Great work Jeff!

  10. OK, here’s a little suggestion for you to considerate Jeff.

    About that leg armor that you mentioned in your las post (the one with the inscriptions). How about deleting the part of the tights, leaving only the inscriptions on the second color?

    The idea is to color the legs or a leg spandex in one color and then place this armor on top of them. This way we could have the tights in one color, the armor in another and the inscription in another.

  11. Love the new sets, no doubt. I know it’s probably a pita, but any chance of breaking it down a bit further? Specifically, give knees their own slot separate from the lower leg.

    I try not to ask for the world, but it comes so naturally.

  12. Jason, we went through that discussion a couple of weeks ago when deciding how to do these, and overall the consensus was to do a 4x breakdown. Throwing in yet another one, for the knees, would throw off the layout and lower the number of unique items I could have. Four seemed to be the popular breakdown.

  13. A few of the knee designs on these new leg armor are already in the Legwear – Kneepad section already BTW. For the ones that are not already there when Jeff gets around to updating that set he can always add them then.

  14. Ooh, mummy wrapping-type stuff!

  15. Great set Jeff!! A lot of this will come in handy. May I request the Dimmu Borgir and Behemoth (Seth) spiked boots? I’d really like those. Thanks again.

  16. Badass Legwear Jeff!!

  17. Kaldath is right, I could use these in the Knees set.

    FANTASTIC. Love it all Legwear is looking awesome. great work Jeff, I’m guessing we will see some Tech legwear next?

  19. Doubtful, Watson. This will probably do it for pants-type stuff for the near future. I’ll likely add a bunch of “briefs” to the spandex set before moving on to something else.

    According to my spreadsheet, the following sets from 2.x have yet to be converted over (not including Expansion1 sets):

    Coat-FantasyCommon
    Coat-ModernCasual
    Companion-BigWeapons (Mark’s working on this)
    Headgear-Fantasy
    Insignia-Tattoos
    Leggings-Socks
    Neckwear-Collars
    Overshirt-Bustiers
    Pants-Monsters

    I think we’ve got a pretty good spread of tops at this point so I will wait on those. I do want to do the briefs (not listed, but mentioned earlier), and a couple of people commented that we need more capes in the Backplane set that match up with the CapeFronts, so I’ll likely do that after Briefs get added to Spandex.

    After that, probably Neckwear needs the most help, followed by Headgear-Fantasy.

    However, I have a lot of Headgear and Insignia already, and Tops as I said are pretty complete. So in the near future, I bet I’ll stop adding more items, and start working on converting over the exclusively male items to the female body where necessary. I also need to start thinking about the next major code rewrite sometime soon.

    Anyway, that’s where my thinking is as of tonight, though it might all change in the morning.

  20. Do watcha gotta do Jeff.
    The new set is awesome beyond awesome.

  21. УРАААААААААААААААААА!!!!!!!!!!
    Cool!!!
    Jeff, thanks!!!

  22. what about some female legwear (and tops).
    my heros are looking kinda gay with out more
    females.

  23. Omg soo cool!But the thing that i am waiting for are the mech parts!When they come out i’m gonna make some serious mechs!

  24. what erez said.

  25. Well done. All the experimenting, testing and preparation was worth it. I haven’t had time to play around too much yet, but at first look, everything seems good.

  26. Watson Bradshaw

    Jeff it looks like you gotta lot of work on your plate! I appreciate getting to see the run down of what may be next. great job so far with all the additions and its not even a Beta model!!!!

  27. Amazing work, Jeff!! A lot of these will really come in handy for future characters.

    I don’t know if they count as Legwear really, but what about my suggestion for spiked boots?

    Like the ones Dimmu Borgir and Behemoth wear? I tihnk they’d be a good edition plus we can use them for anything. I tried making some spiked boots from scratch but they look terrible.

    Here are some pics.

    I really, REALLY want/need these, Jeff. Please?

  28. Me, Myself & I

    @erez (23)

    The female versions of these will likely come in later once the main male sets are all finished. That is of course if I recall the correctly.

  29. Jeff,
    How about some camouflage Army fatigue pants like the ones from HM 2.5? I realize the patterns may be meant for that sort of thing, but I think two-colored camo pattern pants may be nice, and wanted often enough, to have without dealing with the patterns all the time.
