    Thanks for the poses HK. I might just use the runing one. Some transparent character duplicates and speed lines behind it for a finished pic would be very cool.

    Off topic. Sorry to post this here. I’m working on a personal power list of sorts, and I’m just curious as to whether agility, dexterity, and reflexes should be classafied seperately or can they be considered the same?
    They all intertwine, but have differences, so? I’m thinking agility and reflexes can be one, not sure though?

    Some basic defenitions

    Good job as usual HK.

    @MartianBlue, I think they should be classified on their own. They all have different meanings.
    @CPrime, thanks.

    Excellent work, as usual, Hammerknight. Unfortunately the screen shots of the menu items look a little blurry on my screen. I have to blow them up to about 300% sometimes to see which items are selected.

    I started experimenting with characters in nonstandard poses last night and it seems the trick is to use a shape to represent something other than what it is–to use something to represent something else, in other words. For example, in the running pose, HK uses a flesh colored circle to represent the lower half of character’s right leg. He can arrange the circle to create the impression one leg is off the ground and simulate a running figure. Nice work!

    I have to reduce the screen shots of the items to keep the recipe card small. I could make the pages bigger if it would help every one. Let me know.

    Blue, really, it depends on what you want…
    Keeping track of three different stats is going to make each record longer, and a lot of the time, it’s not going to matter very much.
    How badly do you want the extra detail, and how easy are you trying to make the whole thing to read quickly?

  7. MartianBlue says:

    Thanks for your help friends. I made agility and reflexes one, and dexterity another.

    My only problem with trying non traditional poses is clothing. To make the clothing fit, a lot of times it involves a lot of masking and I’ve found the less masking you do (although its awesome) the less glitchy HM3 gets.

    Hammerkight, could you please show me how to make a jester hat. I keep trying do it on my own but it always come out really bad.

    thank you
