A few new shots to bridge the gap until the new trailer:
Nifty. Now gimme!

Time for a monthly update ManShooter--or we're callin' the cops.
ManShooter already got pulled over:
Kitty cops. So cute.
See what happens when you don't post regularly ManShooter? Hurry, save your thread!
There, thread updated.
what, no more teasers?
Hey...at least we know he's alive.
Gentlemen, creating professional quality teaser videos requires time. Time I occasionally spend actually working on the mod, hence the delays.
Yay, the cops let ManShooter go!
But we're all watching you ManShooter...oh yes...we are watching you.
That would explain why all my watches keep disappearing ...
Wrapping up the last of the static structures this week. Can't believe I'm pretty much done with graphic assets...
Here's a few shots of the Masticator, the Xin analog of the extractor units. This is how the model looks when sculpted, before it is retopologized for the game.
And this is how it looks as an (unoptimized) retopo mesh as it will be used in the game:
Second breakfast anybody ... ?
Man, those things actually make my stomach queasy. They're like a cross between a tick and a black widow spider.
Except the one in the top center has that cute, Huey, Dewey and Louie duck-face.
What the heck is, "repotologized"!?
Retopologized. I think ManSh00ter is saying it will be resurfaced into a low-poly game model.
Retopology is a process where you take a high-poly model (in this case, the sculpted model is about 300 000 polygons) and retrace its surface topology so that you end up with a generally same shape but with much lower polygon count (the retopo mesh has about 12 000 polys), which is more suitable for game engines, and pretty much anything else, like render scenes.
