Fan-art/Mod - stand-alone demo
This weekend I started to create some graphics to my "fan-art"/Mod for Xenonauts. To make sure that everyone get the same experience of the graphics, I have made a small software.
The file is 90 Mb and I have compressed it with WinRAR.
You need a screen resolution of 640x480 pixel or better. Tested for all Windows-version, not tested on Mac or Linux/Unix.
Installation: Extract the file "animation-demo.rar". Start the "demo" by running the file "animation-demo.exe".
To start the demo, press either 0 (no armour) or 1 (flak jacket). You can press 0 and 1 to change the armour at any time.
Use the numeric key's (1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9) to change the direction of the animation.
Use W for Walking
Use S for Stop
Use R for Running
Use D for Die (note: after a short period the figure will start walking)
Note: I know there are an error in flak-jacket in the animations "Walk" and "Die".
This first demo contain only male soldier, with M16.
Here are a possible female soldier, with no armour and with flack jacket.
Female soldiers - animations
After done some testing, I ended up with this femal character for Basic armour and Jackal armour:
Animation for waiting is done and I have started creating animation for walking and die.

Reason: Jackal armour - not Wolf...
Face and body looks nice, bosom could be a little smaller (at least on the second female model).
When the graphics is reduced to game-size, it look as busom should have been bigger...

And with that done, I realize that I have made a mistake. These animation should not carry any weapons.
I have to make all animation all over and the new idea is animation for Melee weapons, Pistol, Rifles, Heavy Weapons and Rocket weapons. Then add the weapons, in example pistol, laser pistol or plasma pistol. For the weapons I only have to render the weapons (maybee hands) and this should reduce the time to make the animation - I hope...

Reason: forgot a few issues
Good Lord, there was some strange music out there. Getting a soundtrack à la Battlefield Vietnam together for Xenonauts won't be an easy task. :P

I'm all for The Knack over the promo video for the game. Let Apocalypse Now keep Wagner, we have Chinooks with My Sherona.
