do you ever release that canon KH elsa and anna body or its a private model ?

LordAardvark

They were released months ago, though I think that was before the outfits were built in any capacity. The Curvy Elsa/Anna on my website have Canon morphs. They will be updated once the current bout of work is done on them. They're still not finished, though, so it'll be yet another beta/work-in-progress release. It'll probably be a long time before they're properly finished.

Just saw your tweets on cancelling December plans. NGL LA I'm getting tired of this. You promise stuff and then you get burnt out. I've followed you since 2014, and every time it's the same situation. You have these plans, you make promises, and then you can't even stick to them. Why don't you just not make promises about this stuff anymore? Just do what you do but no ETA's? Because once you set a goal and you tell everyone then people get mad and disappointed. It's happened with tik and tock films. It's happened with how many short movie projects. It's happened with how many models. You promise all these things but don't deliver. You instead write how many tweets talking about mental health or change of plans like we're supposed to just accept that. How about you accept that what you're doing is not healthy and that you need a better way of doing things? I don't care if you share this or whatever, or if you think I'm being a dick. Because I'm sick, and I think we're all sick, of this happening all the time. Change it up LA. Stop promising us things if you cannot 100% guarantee.

LordAardvark

You know, you keep saying this.

And yet, every time I actually ask for you for an exhaustive list of "all the times" this has happened, you go quiet.

Maybe this time you'll actually give me an exhaustive list. And maybe you'll see that it's far, far shorter than all of the things I've actually released. You know, the 25 videos, 30 characters, 16 content dumps, and God only knows how many loops. And all of that is only counting the things on my website, to say nothing of all the models released on SFMLab before I swapped over to exclusively using my website.

I doubt you will, though. You never do. Or, phrased in a way you might recognize:

Just saw your message on how I always cancel everyything. NGL dickface I'm getting tired of this. You bitch and whine and then slink off into the shadows whenever actually called to account. I've received your bitching and whining since 2018, and every time it's the same message. You have these complaints, you say I never release anything, and then you can't even name more than 6 things I've canceled. Why don't you just not bitch about shit that isn't even an issue anymore? Just do what you do but actually have substance to your arguments? Because once you send a message and you claim I cancel everything then I ask you to actually provide a list of things I've canceled. It's happened with models. It's happened with how many short movie projects. It's happened with how many experiments. You make all these claims but don't deliver. You instead write how many messages talking about how I cancel eveyrthing or I never finish anything like I'm supposed to just accept that. How about you accept that you're an entitled cunt and skim past all of the work I constantly churn out on a regular basis to focus on the blue-moon projects that have things beyond my control result in their termination? I don't care if you reply to this or whatever, or if you think you actually came out of this looking like anything other than the fucking cunt that you are. Because I'm sick, and I think we're all sick, of this happening all the time. Change it up douchecanoe. Stop claiming I cancel things if you cannot 100% back yourself up.

I downloaded the Zelda model you had given us and imported it into Blender of all places! However when I go to load the model the eyes remain a blank white making her looked possessed. Look around the internet and couldn't find a solution. Everything else about the models works great so what gives? Do you know of any fix to this? Any help would be much appreciated, Thank you.

LordAardvark

Source uses unique shaders for eyes, as opposed to diffuse textures like most systems do.

You'll need to put the eyes together yourself.

In a previous question regarding the Dead or Alive models, you said you were planning to port EVERY single DOA lady over, citing the DOA wiki page for female characters. Two things I was wondering about: 1.) looking through the entires list on the wiki, and subtracting the 15 or so characters that you've ported already, I count roughly 20+ or so other characters that I think have actual models (most of which come from Dead or Alive Xtreme Venus Vacation). The others seem to be characters that are only alluded to, or only show up in pre-rendered cutscenes. With the characters you can't port, are you going to re-create them from scratch? 2.) Do you have a particular order in which you're going to port the models? I know Mai Shiranui (who is not technically a DOA character, but I don't think anyone wants to disqualify guest characters) is currently on the voting page, so I was wondering if it was going to be left to a vote, or if there was some other determining factor.

LordAardvark

1.) If they don't have models, then I won't build them. The link was just a shorthand to express that there's a lot to build.

2.) No strong order. I'll focus on porting the 14 previous models, plus Marie and Honoka; then I'll focus on the others. But among those 14, there is no real order. Nor is there a real order for the others beyond that.

You said in one of your latest answers "I need to figure out how to get outfits onto the Wheel of Indecision in a sane way." I hope its okay, if i suggest a solution? Why don´t add a second voting area on your website. people can suggest outfits to vote for. Every suggestion needs the information: Download-Link / Image / Character-That-Should-Wear-it. And then it can move just like model suggestions. If the wheel decides to land on Outfits and one of those is done ... send in the reaper! XD But if that´s a solution you would consider ... I would say that Voters would need a second vote right just for the Outfit. I mean 1 vote for Model and 1 vote for Outfit. Would that worK? :)

LordAardvark

It's the most obvious solution, but I've been hesitant on asking my web developer about it, between how much stress the one voting system gave him, and the fact that he's been slowly working on building a new Assets page to supplant the existing one. I don't like piling work on him, though I'm sure he'd call me a silly aardvark for having such concerns and gladly take on the task with a bounce in his step...

Hello Lordaardvark. Just a little question. Are you going to port ME scenebuildports from the remaster (Normany, Citadel Apartment anything like that.) in future like you did with "Fallout 4 - Vault Interior"? high quality scenebuilds from the remaster would be pretty useful to the community (Angel-face).

LordAardvark

Perhaps. Really depends how much of a dick in the pain it'd be to extract and assemble.

Hey, so a long while back when you were working on Sami’s and her outfit, you had all these different variants of her suit. Like the cut outs on her cleavage, arm less sleeves and all these other ones as well that I remember seeing on your Twitter page. Mainly there was one that I really wanted to use which you made her suit as a leotard. I don’t know if you ever finished it? If you did, is it in a state where you could release it or update it with the current one, not just the specific one but the others as well. If you even can.

LordAardvark

If I were to release anything model-related with Samus, I would first update her to the latest DazV5.5 structure. She was literally the prototype to DazV5.0, so she is two major revisions (DazV5.0 proper, and DazV5.5) behind.

The far bigger question is, will I release anything model-related with Samus? There is a reason I've stopped doing anything with her, which you can read in a previous blog post in the archive.

As of right now, I have no plans to do such.

Any news on on Blue star 4? I really like your work btw cheers

LordAardvark

Jack's textures are still in the shop. They're making slow and steady progress. The artist is hoping to get her done before the end of the year. We'll see if Christmas comes early.

what do you think for a orianna lawson outfit for Miranda? I mean they are twins right. Giving her a new haircut and a dress would make actually almost a new character. Any chance for her Twin?

LordAardvark

What, and make Orianna actually look like Miranda? Bioware chose to make the genetically identical clones look nothing alike for reasons unfathomable to the human mind. Who am I to disagree with that?

(I'm not opposed to putting together outfits for Miranda. I need to figure out how to get outfits onto the Wheel of Indecision in a sane way. She's far from the only character who I think could do with more outfits.)

Hello Lordaardvark. Is there any hope for suggesting a male character to the wheel for the next year? I would love to suggest a model based on your bsaa males I really have got a good use for. Any hope for that in 2022? ... Would make wheel spins more exciting, because most male characters are missing in the SFM Community. At least in our niche ;) Please gimme hope! :D

LordAardvark

You can submit them for the Wheel. Don't expect them to get a lot of votes, though.
