  1. Needs some work. Better Scenery with detailing. Smoother animations would also make this almost professional tier. P good otherwise
  2. Imperialism 8/10
  3. These are the tools I use. This -> http://www.planetminecraft.com/mod/mcskin3d/ It is an application that lets you edit your skin in 3d offering tools catering specifically for skin making. I specifically use this for detailing and shading. The darken and lighten tools are perfect for it. Also This -> http://www.getpaint.net/index.html Paint.net is great for rearranging skin parts, changing overall saturation, contrasts, hues, recolor, and brightness. I suggest getting familiar with what that stuff is. Typically when I start making a skin, I do some research of my idea and look for similar skins to check out techniques and how to approach making a depiction of something such as a photo reference. Then I start going to town by laying out base colors and outlines. I switch between paint.net and mcskinedit 3d frequently, using the 3d visual as a good representation of what it would look like in game while also being able to draw on it for accurate placement with ease of toggling various layers. When I am unsatisfied with a color of a clothing piece on the skin or something of the like, I head into paint.net, make my selection of the piece with the selection tool and then mix up the brightness and contrast. Normally when I lower the brightness I raise some contrast or lower some contrast depending if I want distinct value ranges or even to dull down the shadows. I more than often lower the saturation as you don't want to typically have really saturated colors. I also utilize the Sepia filter when creating plain gray scales for armor. It turns the selection into a dull neutral brown from which I unsaturate it to create grays and mess with the brightness and contrast for the values I want. When I want to do some shading, I hop into the 3d skin editing application and use the darken and lighten tool setting the value to the desired value change, clicking various times in shapes of where shadows would realistically be. I also use it to break up the straight entirely one solid color values. Most skins avoid having solid colors without slight variations everywhere in the color value. It generally looks better. I also save my progress along the way in case I ever wish to revert to a previous rendition of the skin. Typically I enjoy the more 'busy' skins which utilize the layers heavily to create depth.
  4. Square up. Bring the fight to the frontier and defend Axios from the ever growing undead menace. *After the nationalistic propaganda is posted before you, another flier directs you to the Westerlands.*
  5. zhulik doesnt even rp anymore. how would he ever arrange a meeting? let alone leave the westerlands to go to a meeting at that? people come to the westerlands if they want to talk, not vice versa. also judging by the screenshots there isnt a single person from the westerlands present in any of them. neither do we really care for global ooc politics, we just simply stick to our rp and it turns out were probably one of, if not, the most active playerbase rp wise currently. but you know, rp fraud is rp i guess. also, i am 100% certain that it isn't someone in the westerlands trying to get you banned either. I have not heard your name uttered once since this event, and a few of the top ranks dont even know who you are. idk what else to say tbh. theres nothing here. -Exit-
  6. "Still more active than the rest of Axios, defending it from the vile necrotics... Where's your contribution to the world?" asks a devout Westerlands Company man who fights to preserve the future greater good as he reads the pamphlet sitting in the local Tavern booth. "Who even is this writer? I don't believe anyone has even seen them before. It's like they don't exist? Fiction!" He then asks to a tavern goer at Death's End who also gives a shrug and spews, "No idea, must be another nobody necrotic. Honestly I am not sure why they even bother. The Company of the Westerlands has better conflicts to fight than some petty squabbles with those who defend degeneracy," the tavern goer states. "I hadn't even seen any assaults on the Westerlands or even raid parties during my stay here either. It's like they knew they couldn't breach the walls with their petty pitchforks." The Westerlands Company man-at-arms grunts as he tosses the horribly written weak show of propaganda into the hearth fire, "So nice of them to deliver more heating for our homes though. It's almost like they care for our stay out here in the cold even when we ignore them anyway."
  7. Hey man it's the playerbase's decision to rp. If they don't their rp dies and so does their group. Other groups will continue to rp even with an oocly funded war going. I personally lead up to 4 events in the westerlands weekly. We make it a goal to not do anything oocly either. Purely rp.
  8. "Zis propaganda ist poor. Try harder," claims Romane Letus Niwarsay II as he posts his own propaganda over the Rebel's.
  9. "Bah, poor propaganda. Zis ist some real scheisse!" states Ser Romane Letus Niwarsay II 'the unburned' as he posts superior westerlands propaganda over top of the lesser scribbles.
  10. i like green beans, wby?
