    Default Ripped Wings

    I'm surprised no one's actually requested this yet! At least that I know of. I also don't know of any mod that adds ripped wings either. (I searched "ripped wings" in the forum and only found RPs.)

    Either way.. introducing, ripped wings for dragons! It's currently a WIP, and I'm trying to figure out how to make the rips much more realistic. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


    No download link up yet, due to the fact that that is the only texture that is currently compatible. Just a teaser.

    Why thank you! ^^ I hit a lot of bumps in the road with the fact markings hate transparency... but I'm just about done. Only a few more things to do and I can release it. ^^ I'll make sure to remember that if I hit into something hard, though!

    I never noticed you wrote that post, actually! xD But I like the idea you mentioned. ^^

    Btw, update:

    Just need to figure out where that black is coming from.

    PS: Markings don't like transparency.


    Racktor's texture (file "..._sk01_...") is a painful one. Not only does it have 2 texture files (muscle & base), but it also has differing texture files.. I.E. that smooth plate one for the muscle, but the small rough bumpy scale one for the base.

    Not bad, Racktor. A little more aggressive than I would have done it but they look pretty good. You did a nice job with them. I had given thought to making something like that a while back but never did anything towards it.

    You are giving me a bit of inspiration to finish something that I was working on with intent for it to become a creation option. I'll have to dig out my notes now....

    Thanks very much Solitaire! ^^ I made it really ripped because generally when someone draws a character with ripped wings, it's riddled with holes and breaks.

    But as Agua says.. go Sol go!!

    P.S.

    Like Solitaire, I'd thought about doing something like this too, but I am notorious for never getting around to my mod ideas. >.> I would have gone more for tattered edges than tearing so many holes that it looks like the Prime Winds are the only reason that dragon can stay airborne, but it looks good! I imagine that this would look really good on blighted dragons, perhaps even be a bit of an explanation for why they can't fly. :P

    Did you have to fix the decal problem by putting the "rips" into the decal files too?

    Thank you, and that's generally the look I was going for - blighted and barely airborn. =P I'm thinking about doing a version with a less tattered look, but still worn down, but that's another day's work... *12:26am*
    All blighted dragons seem to have their wings tattered at least, so maybe!

    Yup. Surprisingly, there weren't as many decal files as I thought. I ended up having to modify 37 files, but I used a sort of "cookie cutter" to get through it. (Since all files are identical in size, one cutter fits all.)

    I can add, that preaty natural rip on zomby texture. you can use it as base for experiment with shape.
    I wan't be rude, but we must be fair - at now it looks preaty unnatural

    Stating your opinion is not being rude.

    I think Racktor said it was rushed into release.

    If more time were taken and a bit more work put on them I think it would be a great addition to the dragon look. Solitaire and possibly others are/were working on this idea as well. I look forward to seeing what others come up with.

    It works fine for me.. I'd upload it on a mirror site, but I don't know any. (I think it's too big for an attachment)
    Edit 2: Okay, try this one: http://www.4shared.com/zip/dZDwroMl/Ripped_Wings.html? MediaFire doesn't like the file apparently.

    I don't mind anyone being rude, any feedback I accept - plus, you're not being rude as Mimir said, you're just stating your opinion.

    But yes, it does look really unnatural. Generally this is a first draft and I'm thinking of doing another more natural looking one today while my sister's bridal shower is being set up.

    It wasn't rushed; I was throwing ideas at the wall to see what sticks, and that's what I came up with. I went for a more "cool", I guess, look than natural.
    But then again, I'm known for going overboard on rips and tears.. lol :P
    Edit: But yes, I'd love to see what others come up with

    Hopefully this looks more natural. =P


    Some of the tears are a little too big, but oh well.

    Do the right and left wings have to be mirrored images? It is looking better but...

    Yeah, they do. If they didn't I'd make the two sides different. The bottom and top can be different but that wouldn't make sense.

    OK, LOL I really don't know your work ethic, you mentioned above that it was a huge number of files to edit.

    So if you only needed to edit 1/2 the number of files (30 something) to get both wings done, it makes sense to me.

    I was just asking. A yes or no would have been fine.

    I really like the idea of tattered wings but think that the exact same wounds on both wings detracts from it a bit. That said I think they look good(ish).
