RaritySpy Update by BigDub RaritySpy Update by BigDub
This is more just to let everyone know I am still working on this than to show any significant progress. Since the Steam Summer Sale progress has all but stopped. >.<
I've spent an unsightly amount of money on new video games in the last week and I've yet to even start all of them up.
Between Ingress, Mass Effect 2, Starcraft 2, and Skyrim I have been very occupied of late.

Anyway, the big changes since the last picture I uploaded. I changed the front mane to try and follow the feedback I have been getting. I also changed the shape of her jaw. There is now minimal clipping with the mask. I have made a few changes to the back mane, but not enough that I feel comfortable showing it off.

An unfinished version of the mod is available here: drive.google.com/folderview?id…

Yes, I had explicitly said that I did not want my prerelease Rarity Spy to be put into a pack because it was not finished. My thought here would be to completely ignore this person. He posted it to a community of tf2 mlp fans. Most of these people have probably already heard of Kassgrein and if they were unaware of my work, might discover it through his post. I am pleased to see that the very first reply was someone griefing him for posting multiple times and not attributing the authors.
I find it annoying that he does not even know what he is doing. When I am finished with modding tf2 I plan to release a pack like this, however it will be condensed into a single vpk. It seems all he has done is put all the vpks into a single zip file.
I am, in summary, annoyed by his actions. I wish to draw as little attention to his post as is possible.

Just saw this, and thought I should explain. I DID include a list of all the authors. "Engineer model, Heavy model, Rarity model belong to BigDub." straight from the source text file. (I appear to have changed naming conventions during this...) And I put all the mods into one vpk at first, but the compiler flipped out, I believe it had a size max. I made multiple to accommodate the compiler. If there is a better way, I would appreciate knowing how to do this. Anyways, if I have offended you, I apologize. I appreciate your modeling, and did not mean to do anything unjust.

There is a better way, I am just not certain how to do it. Valve creates massive vpks that contain all the game's vanilla resources. They are packed into multiple vpks, but accessed by one main vpk. I am not certain how they do it, but I bet the functionality is built into the VPK program.
I have no problem with people making packs of other people's work (so long as they give the credit that is due). It is just that I had requested that no one distribute the Rarity Spy mod because it was not finished. When people download a package they usually don't know where all the individual elements came from, so if they have a Rarity Spy in there they might just assume that is the finished product and never look for an update.
It is easy for me to understand if you never saw my request that the Rarity Spy not be redistributed. I have trouble keeping up with everything I've said. >.<

I'm sorry for the confusion. If you want, I can remove it, or add a link to your profile, or make it clear that it's not finished. Your call.

I suppose it is really not a problem that the model be more public, but I would appreciate it if you would do something to distinguish it as a "work in progress".

I wonder when people're gonna realize that the MLP TF2 is far from done? I mean, we've still got the Shining Armor Soldier, a DECENT Fluttershy Medic, and a whole truckload of updates necessary for Kassgrein's models, so they look DECENT when you wear hats and certain misc?

Im using that model as well and it need to be remade. If we are going to have a Shining Armor model istead of Spike, then he got to have Shining Armor in user interface and HUD (beside health), just like Spike there:

A comment someone posted elsewhere on your profile just gave me a brilliant idea - why not make Rarity's Voodoo-Cursed Soul form change her into a changeling? It makes sense, does it not?

I can see it as well, it is off somehow. I just need to know how so I can fix it.

I just went on TF2 to look at the previous models, from Kassgrein's Rainbow Scout to your Applejack Engineer. Your engineer's muzzle is actually different from the sniper and scout, but of course you and Kassgrein are two different people so this is to be expected. The engineer's muzzle is fine though.

 

The problem I'm having with this is it looks like you've pushed Rarity's muzzle upward, which to me looks unnatural and pushed in. Also I'm not going to lie, but this current muzzle to me just makes it look... masculine.

 

I understand if there are issues with the mask, and you may not want to go back to what it looked like before if the clipping is going to keep happening. If I were you, I'd take a look at Kassgrein's scout and sniper models, as those muzzles are very precise with the MLP:FIM show. Who knows, maybe those muzzles may work out with the masks?
