UCGO is almost dead. But today at the event I noticed a good number of players logged in. So there’s still hope for this game.
I don’t have time to work on UCGO anymore and without more updates UCGO will definitely die soon. But if some of the players would take over updating the game adding new MS and weapons and possibly other things too, UCGO might exist for a few more years.
Anyone who wants to do this post a comment so I can see who’s willing to do something to keep this game alive.
What it takes to add new MS/Weapons to UCGO.
Someone with basic knowledge of 3DS Max or Blender or Maya or other 3D modelling application.
You must be able to load a 3D model and then split it into different parts. Take a look at the pictures below. It’s the RX-178 and then it has been split into several parts. Every moving part such as head, chest, upper arm, lower arm etc… must be seperated from each other.
And then each of these parts should be split into smaller parts based on their color. For example the chest is split into the yellow, red and blue parts. This is not really required but if you want to make use of UCGO’s own coloring system it must be done.
Someone who can texture MS and Weapons.
Most MS and weapon models already comes with textures but needs adjustments to make them look OK in UCGO.
If you want to make use of UCGO’s own coloring system textures can be automatically created in 3DS Max. You will however need to do some adjustments to contrast and brightness, and possibly other things.
Someone who will import the new MS and weapons into UCGO.
Here you will use a command line tool for importing the various parts of a model into UCGO. And then you have to make adjustments to their postion so that e.g the head appears in the right spot, arms are where they should be and so on.
It’s easy. You only need to type in some text commands and then launch UCGO to check the results. But it’s time consuming.
Someone who will go through 2-3000 models
Then we need someone who’s willing to look at 2-3000 3D models from Gundam Breaker 2 and pick out all the MS and weapons which belongs in UC.
