I've been having a ton of interesting conversations on dA and AIM and various forums lately, so let me recap:YES
, I am
making custom DLC modules for the Project Diva 2nd and Project Diva Extend PSP games.YES
, I am
spending hours upon hours
making sure that I get these textures just right
, as in, seamless.
I've been spending a lot
of time and effort to make these modules of mine every bit as high-quality
as the ones Sega made and have in the game already. This is why I use Photoshop CS and about 40 layers for each body texture, to separate each UV'd area, shade it, highlight it, etc etc. (You think I'm joking? Because I'm not.) Therefore...NO
, you may not
extract my textures to use in MMD or anywhere else, nor do I want you to ask me to do that for you. You may not redistribute them, so don't re-upload my DLC files anywhere else (just point people to their download pages on my gallery, jeez. No trading, no selling, no edits, you know the drill, people! I put this sort of stuff in the readme files already, anyway.) See, I have a philosophy: If I'm going to post it, I'm going to make sure it's good enough that I won't mind
having my name on it. The logical extension of this is, if I post something good, I want my name on it.
If you're into Vocaloids and MMD as it is, you're probably already used to these sorts of terms. It's common sense and respect!YES,
you may ask me for tips on doing your own textures, and help with them. Just because I won't give you the PSD source files for the ones I've already done doesn't mean I'm a heartless bitch or something.
seeing that others are improving. I want to improve too. I'd like to see more high quality
custom DLC modules available! You don't have Photoshop? Then why not get Gimp? It's free, and it's a lot like Photoshop; I'm sure it can do a fine job too. I may even work with you on a module or two, offer some feedback... ask you for crits on my work-in-progress modules...? You know, that sort of thing. It'd be fun, don't you think?
(I can't promise I'll have a lot of time
for helping others, but it doesn't hurt to ask!
, I am
open to suggestions as to what characters to make next, especially
if they're ones not already in the game (ie, a non-Crypton 'loid. Costume ideas for Gakupo or Gumi? VY1? You want to see an attempt at Yuzuki Yukari or IA? Cool!
I can't promise
I'll do them, or even get to them right away if I do
intend to work on them, but I'd like to hear what you're looking for!) Keep in mind that all I currently have the ability to do is edit textures
on the in-game character models, and not the models' physical geometry, though I can swap heads/hair and bodies, and assign them to different 'loids entirely, so while I can try for a look-alike, I probably won't be able to get them 100%.NO
, I'm not likely to work on making Miku some outfit or other. Yes, I like Vocaloids, but I find Miku neither "KAWAII" nor "DESU". Great for you if she's your thing, but she's not mine.
Yes, I know that Project Diva is about like, 90% Miku-centric... why do you think I'm working so hard to put non-Crypton characters into the game like this?
You know you can use DLC modules in Edit games, right...?YES
, I like feedback on my DLC modules. Please don't fave/download and run, leave me a comment!
So, thanks for understanding, and I hope everyone has fun!
