Just for the fun of it, I'm creating a series of costumes for policemen, both male and female, essentialy removing the talkie from the original ones by Moviestorm/Shortfuze.

 

Not sure about the lawfulness of modifying the meshes of original assets, so they won't be made publicly available until this aspect is clarified.

Hi Jam,

 

I'm guessing that you know not to remove any vertices from the MS skeleton - but just reallocate them? I  went through a painful learning curve when I created some uniforms a while back ;)

Hi Jam,

 

I'm guessing that you know not to remove any vertices from the MS skeleton - but just reallocate them? I  went through a painful learning curve when I created some uniforms a while back ;)

 

Fortunately in this case the vertices of the talkie are part of a fully separate mesh from the puppet's uniform/body, not sharing any of them, so just had to proceed selecting carefully those vertices and faces of the gadget to be removed. Well, a few times I peeked the wrong vertex/face and an ugly hole appeared on the puppet's body; good old undo command came handy to repair the damage done to the victim.

 

In other cases, messing with the mesh most probably would require moving some of the vertices or deleting them and recreating some of the zapped faces, but the latter can be quite involved and quickly become a real hell of a mess.

 

Nevertheless, in the example shown, in addition to editing the mesh of the model, I had just to doctor a bit the textures in order to remove what appeared to be the shadow of the talkie projected over the uniform.

I asked Moviestorm/ShortFuze for their permission to publish this addon, since it's heavily based on models included in one of their content packs.

 

They promptly answered they didn't have any issues but asked me to remove any component left unaltered from the original content pack, so this addon couldn't be used unless having a legit copy of the 'Law and Order' pack previously installed.

 

So I've honored their request, removing every not absolutely essential component in it, and will make this mini-addon to the public, though not on a general basis. If it happens to be of your interest, please send me a PM.

Great work jam, thank you. I'm hoping to add a few Utility Type Vehicles soon. Since I'm feeling better I like being busy.

IMPORTANT!  I guess you may like to know:

 

* A new version of the mod has been released, fixing an issue with the weighting of the mesh vertices in some of the models included, so please be sure to get the updated addon file.

 

* jm_PoliceCostumes is now released to the general public and it can be downloaded from my shared folder (see signature below). PLEASE NOTE: the requirement of a valid licence for the 'Law and Order' official package by Moviestorm still applies.
