HM3: Common female fantasy tops

I've just posted the "Tops-Female-Fantasy-Common" set to HeroMachine 3, a conversion of the previously released male items to fit the standard female body. As usual, if you don't see it on the list, clear your browser cache. Enjoy!

    Looks good, Jeff! What’s next on the agenda?

  2. Jeff Hebert says:

    Funny you should ask, Jake, as I was literally wondering the same thing as your comment appeared in my mail reader.

    I think that’s it for Top conversions, which means I need to do the Legwear ones next.

    However, I think before I dive into those (which I hate) I am instead going to catch up on contest prizes.

    Jeff the upper sleeve item on the 5th page Second Row, 3rd Column is not working, it does nothing whenever I click on it.

  4. Jeff Hebert says:

    Oops, didn’t name that one properly in the export field, thanks Kaldath. I’ve corrected and uploaded it, clear your cache and give it another run, it ought to be working now.

    Hey Jeff, since the subject of “what’s next?” popped up: I know this has to be harder than it looks or you probably would have done it already, but I see a few items in the Lordi and Zombie editions that haven’t made it to HM3 yet. Particularly the skinless female body, and some of the Lordi gloves/bracers are awesome.

    (sorry if this has already been asked five million times)

  6. Kaldath says:

    There is actually one more Tops section that needs to be converted to females Jeff. Tops: MaleTech

  7. Jeff Hebert says:

    I’m undecided on the Tech stuff. That was all just direct import from the Warrior mini for testing purposes right at the start and thus doesn’t even fit the Standard Male body. I’m basically punting on deciding if that stuff even is going to make the transition to the full release version.

    Jason (5): Those items are not on the current schedule for inclusion.

  8. Kaldath says:

    Well even if you don’t convert them to the female body, I certainly hope you keep them as they are in HM3, as I use at least a handful of those items when I do high tech characters.

    Ah 🙂 ! Great job Jeff !!

    I finally have that vest available for women (It was a pain to adapt those things for women).

  10. NEON_N64 says:

    Oh, about the Tech and Zombie stuff…

    It would be good to see them properly converted to HM3, they’re good items. Maybe not in time for launch, but sometime down the road.

  11. Tim says:

    I don’t know if my opinion will make any difference, but I would REALLY like to see the tech items not only be converted for female, but also make the final release.

    I think there’s some really awesome armor in that set that I would hate to see gone! There’s one in particular, the very first armor in the set, that I need for a line of futuristic soldiers I’m designing.

    Please keep them Jeff! I, for one, would definitely appreciate it. 🙂

    Hey Jeff,

    I’ve been following HM3 for a while (though I haven’t posted before now) but I have a few places you can do in converting male to female…
    In Order:
    Gloves: This would be a big one, since a number of the glove types are built for the bulkier male bicep and don’t resize well over the female arm. The long-gloves are the big offender here.
    Belts: Another kinda big one, since some belts dont resize well over the female hips.
    Shoulders: Some of the capes don’t resize well over the female shoulders/neck.
    Facial Features (ears, eyes, eyebrows, nose, mouth): These kinda vary from low priority (shrinking and repositioning ears to the female defaults) to medium-high (getting some feminine looking eyes beyond one set) This is mostly a convenience set though (getting them to be the correct size/position without massive tinkering) though some more feminine-looking features would really help!
    Alternate Bodies: Getting female equivalents of the male alts (brick, dragon, wolfman, fat, etc) would be kinda nice at some point. Similarly, some of the monster-types don’t link well to the female hips (the mermaid and snake bodies are the worst, ironically).

    As a side note, I wouldn’t mind (when the time comes to add new stuff) some more “female-only” items, like mid-riff length jackets (think Rogue from 90’s X-men) or armored skirts as well.

    Again, I love this program and hope for your continued success!

    There’s a juvenile “Common Female Fantasy Tops” joke waiting to be made. I just can’t quite bring myself to do it.

  14. Nick Hentschel says:

    Thank you, Jeff! I’ve been waiting for this stuff for ages, and I’m sorry I didn’t notice sooner.

  15. Rowan says:

    I love this site, it’s great! I especially love it for (role-playing) character pictures …
    One problem, though: there’s this lovely female full-body pose with her spine curved in a C-shape and her fists balled at her sides. I love it. Unfortunately, she has no clothes. The transformation widget does not allow bending the clothes into a C-shape, and therefore, none of the clothes will fit her.

  16. Jeff Hebert says:

    Rowan (15): Anything but the standard, face-on, symmetrical body (male OR female) is an extra bonus, not supported in the other items. Basically it’s a “use it if you can” to add a bit of flavor, but only the standard bodies have fully supported item sets.

    There are some tricks you can use to help, though. For instance, you can MASK on various items to the body to get spandex or energy effects. If you want to get fancy, you can add multiple instances of that body, with a different item Masked onto it and the body in question set to 0% alpha for all three colors, to get the effect of more than one item that’s contoured to it. You can use some of the half-coats or half-shirts, capes, etc.

    Your choices will be very constrained, but it is nonetheless possible (if difficult) to use it to make some non-standard characters that look different.

  17. Rowan says:

    ‘Nother question, then. Are the right hands and feet going to get “Female Standard” versions soon?
    Is there somewhere I should be reading to find the answer to this question, rather than just asking in the comments?

    Also, thank you for your reply. I will have to try your suggestion; I haven’t played with the Mask feature yet …
