What I've Been Up ToFirst of, good day to all of you. Tis been a long while since I posted anything here, so I wanted to kinda give you all an idea of what I've been up to, and what's gonna come in the future.
To be honest, things have been quite... awkward in the last months, specially since I got into college three months ago. But, of course, things started to get weird way before that. In my last entry -september 2012-, I mentioned a charity trip... well, it didn't go as planned. Let's just say I had to do something disgusting. Dear lord...
That aside, I've been getting more and more into modding lately, specially in Mount and Blade: Napoleonic Wars. I've left the BG2 dev team and started working freelance for various mods, such as La Belle Alliance and the War of 1812. That, and I've got myself my own little modding corner in the Flying Squirrel Entertainment forums, called "Mr. Kochi's Skin Warehouse" (http://www.fsegames.eu/forum/index.php?topic=3563.0). I've uploaded quite a few British reski
Charity Trip and More BG2 Fun!Next week I'll be leaving with my class mates for a charity trip to Tuclame, Provincia de Córdoba.
Basically, Tuclame is an isolated town in the north of the province, where most people suffer from hypothyroid due to the lack of iodine ingested in their daily diet. Water there has very little iodine, thus turning iodized salt in the only way to ingest the mineral.
The idea behind this year's trip is installing a somewhat good network of working computers in the town school. Last year I went with another group of lads to help with a new water pump, which became one of the few real water sources in town (Ever since a dam was built up north, the drought it caused meant a huge damage to the environment in this region. There's little to no grass, dead trees and dust everywhere), so now we want to give some importance to the kids' education, making sure they receive the best education available to them... though looking at the school desertion percentage, few will actually finish primar
Warband Revolution dead and lots of homework. Fuk.Well, shite. Warband Revolution mod died miserably due to a lack of communication and cooperation between the main mod developers, thus me not having any models to work with, and the whole mod falling apart.
And here I thought I would be able to upload better Revolutionary War videogame stuff. Oh well... BG2 and Gmod will have to do.... when I'm done with a huge pile of work, that is.
Apologies, lads, but no uploads for a while. I'll have to get this done first. Wish me luck.
A New Modding TeamDue to BG2 development being stuck due to the lack of coders, and the fact that I have nothing better to do, I decided to start modding for other games, specially Mount and Blade Warband.
About three weeks ago some guy came out with the idea of making a Revolutionary War mod for Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars. However, at the time I was a bit busy working on the 47th Lancashire skins. Now, they asked for my help. How can I say no to such a great proposal?
So, as of now, I'll be working on a Revolutionary War mod for Napoleonic Wars. This, however, will be quite a challenge, since I am truly not used to doing everything from scratch... but I can manage xP.
So what does this mean? Well, first of all, I'll upload stuff in here much more often. I was put in charge of uniforms, so expect interesting designs coming in.
Second: I will have less time for other things, so GMOD screencaps will have to wait...
Lastly: :iconTRRplz::iconsaysplz: Heh...
47th (Lancashire) Regiment of Foot, 2nd BattalionAfter a week of trial and error, plus a patch that basically broke Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars, I finally managed to get the 47th Regiment's skins done. The whole pack includes the King's and Regimental Colours, remade Ranker, Ensign, Officer and Drums, new shako and a small tweak in the code.
I must admit, these skins were quite a challenge to make. BG2 and Napoleonic Wars are quite different regarding their models' UV templates and texture arrangement. I had to edit about 6 files to make the whole texture pack, some even including new bump maps.
Truly, I am quite impressed with the final results. This skin pack looks way better than expected, and I even managed to add a few extra details to make it even better (Belgic Shako and code tweaking).
Overall, one of my best retexturing projects.
Napoleonic Wars...As I continue my twisted foray into the world of BG2 development, I figured it would be a good idea to also try my hand in other games, with different engines. Therefore, I've began playing around with Mount and Blade Warband: Napoleonic Wars.
To my surprise, this game is, as the devs said, quite easy to mod and play around with, so I took the initiative and began making a few skins for the British 33rd Regiment.
This project is way more ambitious than the previous ones, as it also includes twisting around a few scripts and editing 8 files + normal maps. These skins, however, are way tougher to edit than BG2's... mainly because this is a commercial game and not a mod...
I'll keep you posted on my progress in this new adventure. Hopefully ye'll see something interesting within this week.
Also, my birthday's on Tuesday, and hopefully I'll get enough money to buy myself a new PC. That and finally get a driver license...
BG2 Development: My work submittedI just finished submitting all my new textures to BGmod SVN. All the new uniforms I posted have been uploaded to BG2's 2.2 update directories.
Now onwards to something else: making flesh, skin and detail sprites.

Loyalists TO ME!Got news!
First of, regarding BG2 development, I'm finally in possession of things to show! Starting off with The Stand of the East Norfolk:
That picture right there shows about 70% of all my work within the last month. A full new Redcoat pack for the British side, based on the 9th East Norfolk Regiment of Foot.
Then, (this pic's been here for ages) the Point Blanking Bastard, the Light Infantry unit, based on the 23rd Royal Welsh Fusiliers:
This one has been drastically improved, with way better textures and overall look. Expect to see more of this soon.
Lastly, The Redcoats, a full preview to all 3 new skins in detail:
Changing topic, I was promoted to Guardsman in 47th Foot, and elected as commander of a squad! I am now the head of the Loyalist component of the unit, a group exclusive for American members. We'll be holding late night public events in BG2 for the American population on Saturdays at around 11 pm EST, so if you're inte

SECOND GATCHA TRADING CENTERHere we go again folks! It's the same drill as last time. If you're looking to swap or resell your roll(s), comment here!
Event can be found here:
!!! When you trade or resell a gatcha, please comment who you traded/sold them to on the gatcha's stash file !!!
The only things you can change about the design of a gatcha you get are the patterns and/or the saturation of the colors. NOTHING ELSE. As always, you can buy extra items for them in the cham shop like horns or more colors.
EDIT: Please don't bump your trade offer more than 2-3 times. It spams the comment section. Or at least hide your old comment so it doesn't clutter up the comments! I might go through and hide deals that have already been finalized.
