    Thanks guys!

    It's rather colorful, than dirty ;)

    Also, he's not a mechanic/tech type of guy to me. He's rather fast speaking hustler/small-ish thief, traveling between the towns and doing good deals (for him, of course).

    Anyway, when he ever gets done I'll replace that retarded Myron's TH with this one (and I'll get rid off his retarded critter too), as a part of "Lulz sucks" Fallout 2 small-ish mods. What else I'm planning to do:

    - replace retarded Mobsters with re-painted Combat Armour,
    - replace retarded NCR police man with blue Combat Armour,
    - get rid off ALL retarded special encounters (no more fucking armoured robes, or holy grenades :wall:),
    - get rid off retarded ghost in Den,
    - get rid off retarded talking plant,
    - use NPC Mod to get rid off retarded Vic and Myron critters,
    - get rid off of most new, shitty weapons added to Fallout 2.

    And stuff which is beyond my uber haxzorz skills:

    - change New <s>Vegas</s> Reno into something moar fitting,
    - get rid off of retarded kung-fu-shi freaks with their retarded Emperor (heavy changes in San Francisco),
    - get rid off retarded talking animals.

    Enough, otherwise I'd need to change most of the game! :D

    It's time to start fixing shitty design, Let the Holy Crusade begin! :revolution: Now I'll only find a spare time for it :roll:

    Quite a long list...
    About the th, he looks good his goggles remind me of those old ones that were used with those leather caps/helmets.

    Oh, that does sound good! As a hustler, he looks quite suitable :) Still, the lenses in the goggles look too pristine IMO.

    Sounds like nice crusade against retards! :clap: Down with the feeble-minded, I say!

    Indeed. Fallout 2 needs a lot of fixing to bring the Fallout atmosphere back.





    Anyway, what about this color of Lara's face?

    How do you have so many versions readily available? I guess you really are prepared for the revolution :revolution:

    The retards are coming, the retards are coming! hehehe...

    I likes it like that :V

    Mass production of them is a very fast task, in opposite to mass TH production :ugly:

    Are you talking about normal or green version of the princess? :D

    I am not sure about this eye covering stuff. But this also can be, because I don't like such stuff at all. Never. In the face of nobody.

    The emo "hair pulled out over one eye thing" really bugs me too, but if it fits the character it is portraying, it'll have to do :shrug:

    This also reminds me of something else with the hair. I wondered all the time why it looks how it looks... now I got it. :P Is it possible to make the hair look more dirty / broken? Right now it looks like she is washing and cleaning her hair every day.

    I agree. She looks very pale and clean and with the hair like that it stands out even more, so as Lexx said, perhaps making the hair a little dirtier, less straight and a bit more 'messy'?

    Never…Myron is my favorite, to replace him will bring the wrath of the Fallout Gods…as for the rest of the changes – I will like to see what you come up with. :ugly:

    She's like Laura, the only young female aryan head in Fallout. I'm a graphics racist obviously :dance:

    Anyway, I made cracks/scratches/dirt on the Rake's goggles. Yankee lost his tattoos (I must only familiarize myself with it) and I've changed Lara's hair into less emo type (and I thought that emos are very popular these days :shrug:). In the mean time Rake wants to say something: "Hello, I'm alive!"



    Maybe I'll create 3 x talk, 2 x transition and 3 x blink only. And I'll skip shake/nod thingy (I even have no idea when exactly they're used), which means ~60 frames less, which is half of the work. IIRC, they aren't required :wiggle:

    I thought I already pissed them off (that Gods) :scratch: Also, I'll replace* Myron's TH for my own purposes only - I'm not planning to release this kind of mod.

    Anyway, if "Lulz sucks" mods will ever be done - they're going to be modular, so you may pick up the stuff you like.

    * if I'll replace ;) I'm always killing this fucker at sight, which is also a good solution to eliminate him from game without modifying any files :D

    They appear randomly in either head idle mode or on a new node. I think if you don't add them, the game skips them, but I don't know if this can cause some problems.

    Sometimes they help to add more variety to the head, but in most cases you don't recognize them, if you don't watch for it. (Still it's kind of subliminal. Hurr durr.)


    I personally didn't took Myron with me since long time. In most cases, I skip nearly everything of New Reno quests and just do very minor stuff here and there.

    Heh. But that's not what i said. I think the TH looks too "pretty" to be a rough wastelander clad in metal armor, but that's just an opinion obviously, so :shrug: :wink:

    Also, your image link seem to be down.

    I often don't go there at all. Most of my Fallout 2 playthroughs is looking like this:

    Suckroyo --> Klamath --> Den --> Modoc --> Vault City/Gecko --> Redding --> uninstalling the game.

    I only finished Fallout 2 once, at the very first time, just before I started to play Fallout. Isn't this strange? :D

    Sorry for misunderstand.

    Maybe I'll add tattoos around the neck - I don't want to rape her very cool face with them. Here you can see new hair style/colors:



    I want her as party member! :obsessed:

    Yeah, I deleted it by accident. Yesterday there were some problems with imageshack (and my uber cool account there :dance:): 504 errors and multiple uploads of the same image on different servers. I've deleted wrong one. Here it is:



    I've changed position of the camera (zoom out to fit whole head into the window + rotation) + lighting. I don't know why, but on some of the frames he reminds me of Michael Biehn, to be more specified: a cartoon-ish version of him. Looks like I've found a reference! Yay! :dance:

    Hey conti / Lexx / anyone overly familiar with Fallout 2... Where does Marcus get the background for his talking head? I've been looking through Fallout 2's master.dat for a while now, and I just can't find it. :confused:

    I looked in the art / background folder, but no luck. Does anyone know where the tricky little Fallout devs hid that FRM? It's driving me nuts :wall:

    BTW conti, I love both of those TH's. The emo one looks perfect, and the Rake guy looks as sneaky and deceptive as he'll possibly get. :wink: Please make those animations, I must have that redhead in my party! (Maybe she'll get a unique red-head critter too :wiggle:)
