    Hi!
    We are developing a new series - Chibi Series! Currently work in progress.

    In this series, the characters will be in Chibi style ( Big head and smaller body) with hand painted textures. We know it's difficult to find characters with hand painted textures that are customizable. So it's finally here! Chibi Series will also be customizable in many ways. We will be revealing more images and information in this thread. Below is the first preview image of the series!

    Caption: When you are level 1 and no gold for haircut, clothes and weapons ;D

    Let us know what ideas you have for this series. Your feedback is valuable to us.

    Level up! He has chosen to become a Knight! What do you think?

    Characters are customizable. Just drag and drop the prefabs to the attach points to add accessories and change the material to change costumes.

    We have submitted to asset store for approval!


    CHIBI SERIES - MALE PACK 01
    Chibi - Male Pack 01 is a customizable fantasy themed Chibi style character with hand painted textures. The term chibi has mostly been conflated with the "super deformed" style of drawing characters with over-sized heads. Chibi Series - Male Pack 01 is a perfect asset for your medieval fantasy themed game development. The customizable feature allows you to create interesting game play, game progression and unique character look.

    They are humanoid mecanim ready, so you can use these characters with the humanoid animations you have. We have included a set of basic animations in this package.

    Textures are in PSD format. You can edit them easily with Photoshop! The characters are using Unity's FREE Toon shader in the preview images.

    @Meshtint Lets say i have a 3D modell of trousers and i want to equip those on my character ... will that be possible ? The trousers should also move and transform with the animation as if it were a part of his body.

    And about adding new skins / textures to the players body ? Will that be possible ?

    -- Edit --

    Basically i just need acess to the characters rig to use the same rig with my selfmade trousers for example. I really would aprecciate if you could take a look at this here to tell me if that would be possible with your package and the fbx files it contains :
    https://forum.unity.com/threads/tutorial-how-to-make-clothes-animate-along-with-character.475253/

    If thats the case and its possible to animate my self made trousers with your character, im gonna buy that package ^^

    Thanks a lot :)

    Hi!

    Currently all the clothes are skinned to the bones. You can turn it on and off in the game to give your characters different clothings. I am not sure how you can add your our trouser mesh. I have checked out the link you sent and we have not tried anything like that before. Maybe you should try that on your own character first and see if it actually works.

    Textures are definitely possible. All the textures provided are in PSD format. UV layout are provided too. So you can easily texture the clothing the way you want it.

    We are using 3D MAX cat rig for the characters.

    Thanks for your answer :) ! Well it works when i have atleast acess to the original character source files. Heres a tutorial i found regarding this type of adding new "cloth" :


    Do you guys only ship the rigged characters fbx files within this package ? Is there possible a way to gain acess to the original 3D Max files ? I wouldnt sell / give away those files. Im also already searching for another way to add 3D mesh clothes to the character... but if there arent any it would be great if we could make some kind of agreement.

    -- EDIT --

    Alright, i just took a deeper look into this scenario. I noticed that i just basically need a rigged mesh of the character to animate the cloth along the rig.

    What he did here is to use a 3D software to skin the clothing. So similarly to what he did, you need to skin the trouser on to the CAT rig in 3d max. Do you know how to use 3d max and cat rig?
    We can provide the source file at a fee :) You can email us for more info.
    How does your trouser look like? The bottom mesh of the chibi character has a generic shape. It should fit most pants design. Have you consider just re-texturing it without adding new mesh?
    Note that we will be out for office for a week starting from tomorrow. So our response will be slow!

    I think it would be awesome if you released a version with a smaller head, too, for those of us who like the style but not so much looking for Chibi. Though I suppose it would be a lot of work having to adjust the hair and headgear to fit.

    That would be a great idea ! I love the style of characters but the big head... well it could be a bit smaller (as well as the hands ) :)

    Actually I think there's a cheat to it. Create an empty game object and resize it to your liking, then child it under the head bone. from there on, just customize characters as usual, drag the head and head dress, hairs to the the game object that you have created instead of the game object we created for you.

    It's a little tricky to say if an asset is mobile ready. For eg, it works well if you have 10 characters in one mobile screen but it probably doesn't if there are 1000 characters in one mobile screen. There are so many factors that will affect performance. The environment, drawcalls, codes etc. So i suggest you test it out when you are working on the game.

    The characters are pretty low poly. Using only diffuse map. So I would say it's optimized and the assets can be used for mobile. Characters are using a few materials depending on which accessories/costumes they are wearing. Batching will help to reduce draw calls.

    1 Character is about 2000 tris.
