    Awesome... If you're taking suggestions, I'd love to see some intricate plate armor that looks slightly more fantasy and less historical.

    Do you plan to make extra LOD for mobile game? I.E. Unity iPhone

    Support mobile gaming can broaden your market. I think.

    Comon, this is Steve, he never fulfilled any term :) He is notorious for almost 1 years delays, so just wait and some day it will be. I trust Steve, that he will deliver it, but I dont trust any term he gives :)

    Unfortunately, Steve also gets other projects thrown at him as well that affect timelines. I threw him some additional work to him a couple weeks ago that are probably affecting the schedule for this project.

    Sanpats,

    Please be a little more patient. Im working very very hard on the projects, but you have to understand that in order to provide my users with the best product, time will unfortunatally spill over the release date.
    I also had illness last week, that put the development on cycle on hold all week.

    Sci Fi Project will be released Saturday 3rd December

    I'm wondering about that Scifi pack. :) If it's not ready for release, can you at least give us a teaser?

    The sci fi pack is being exported as we speak. IT will launch with 5 unique armour suits, 5 heads, 5 hairstyles, additonal boots, armour/tech pieces, 5 helmets.
    Of course.. each of these can be mixed and matched providing no end of design.

    The exports are what is taking the time today!!, hence why im a few days over my latest release date - exporting as one FBX with all separate groups, so you can hde and show, plus as other customers suggested - each body part exported with its own rig as a separate file, and advanced users can sew at run time

    THis will be on everyones character account tomorrow afternoon, althogh if the exports go well, could be much much sooner.

    There have been previous delays, but im finally on the home run!

    I will also launch a part of arteria that is dedicated to these projects, and each base character style will have its own prop shop.

    Fantasy one will be released early next week, possibly the weekend.
    Also going to do a version for modern day, and cartoon too

    Are there inverse kinematics or motion capture data in the base character packs animations, or they are the same as the animations of the other characters ?

    Can't wait for the medieval version btw!

    Steve, I'm wondering. Are you going to go primarily into character development or are you going to do buildings and environments, like you did before the character site? I know you're only one person and doing both can be overwhelming.

    RoyS, yes.. lots of environnments, thats my key area. Actually these characters have been planned for so so long, but because ive been doing all the environments, never got around to put the time into them.
    ONce i have these base character for scifi and medieval released, im releasing the backlog i started previously, which includes a new cave pack, Moat and Castle Pack, plus the new medieval series of city packs.
    Also sci fi environments too

    Cant wait for the sifi packs. Are you planning space ships also in the future? And space objects like space staions and asteroids? Will your sifi char pack have male and female?

    HI

    I have a few space shis on the site already, and ive been working on some sci fi environments too - one a large sci fi base, plus a construction kit ship, plus corridor/room pack.

    I cant believe how long these exports are taking me!!!!.. I think my hand will need sewing on by the time ive finished, never mind the character meshes!

    Currently preparing a video where i talk about this project, and show the many meshes that are available in the sci fi pack - and how easy to swap meshes. Lots of starts and stops due to complexity of project, but its good to go today.

    I believe congratulations are in order, Steve. Numerous people have tried this before and all have failed to deliver. This is the first actual pack to make it to distribution level. Congratulations. Not only that, but when I started the second video the first thing I thought was "This is probably his best looking model, yet".

    Real impressive stuff, Steve. Truly, congratulations.
    Real curious to see what your other packs look like :)

    Really excited... yep a good idea to post on your own forum too because I don't normally use this forum but I found this thread by googling "arteria base character" as I knew you were making it :)

    The fantasy base character is what I am really hoping for but if its anywhere near this good I can't wait!!! :):):)
