Eight Animated TSM Wardrobes

Eight Animated TSM Wardrobes

Category: Misc. -> Dressers
EPs Required: None – base game compatible
Cost: Varies
Poly Count: Low poly to Medium poly

I have some more TSM conversions for ya. Today I come bringing wardrobes – eight of them, to be specific. As always with conversions, I’m sure at least some of these have been done before, but I’m not quite so sure they have been done like this because it’s a real pain to do. All of them are animated, you see. πŸ˜€

All eight wardrobes have nineteen Pooklet recols (the naturals + Time Bomb) – and this time, I actually haven’t been boring and done all the meshes in Volatile, but have instead used the colours I thought suited the wardrobes’ personalities the best. (Yes, I just said “the wardrobes’ personalities.” I’ve thought about this waaay too much.) Note that the pictures are taken outdoors, so the bump mapping appears sharper than it does indoors.

With one exception all the meshes are >1,010 polys/tile, so they are low-ish in poly.

On with the show! Our first contestant is the Kruxenkram Studded Wardrobe, for $600.

Sir Jeffrey is helping us with the demonstration today; you’ve actually met him before, even though he was a bit younger then.
As you will see, he is quite the dutiful young knight who takes his task as wardrobe-demonstrator very seriously.

The mesh is in Depth Charge; the other eighteen recols look as follows:

Next is the Wardrobe with Fleur De Lys Motif for $625 (no, it doesn’t get a more imaginative name than that, poor thing). Same recols as above (so you won’t get to see them again), but this mesh is in Pyrotechnic.

Then we have the Timberbumff Concarvenite Wardrobe (yeah, that’s more like it) for $650, in Incendiary.

Which is followed by the Burdley Revival Wardrobe, a Safety Fuse fellow for $670.

Yes, the outfit does indeed look quite… Swedish. πŸ˜›

After that we have the Fission Ante-bellum Advortonian Wardrobe for $790. This one also has door insets in eight ACYL colours, to be mixed and matched with the wardrobe recols.

Next in line is the Floral Carved Wardrobe in Immoderate Style, for $815 and in Volatile. I really like this one, I think it’s so cute and chubby. πŸ™‚

Then we have the Clovenform ‘Pinacello’ Arched Wardrobe of title pic fame, for $985. This is the poly-count exception I talked about earlier; it has just over 2,300 polys, so 1,150/tile.

With the darker recolours, the lattice is lighter than the frame, but with the lighter ones it’s the other way around, like so:

The mesh, on the left, is Brisance; the recol on the right is Grenade And yes, I could have made the lattice a different subset,
but unfortunately I didn’t think of it until after I’d made all the recols (and I was too lazy to start over).

And last but not least we have the Graffenschaft Lacquer Reindeer Wardrobe for $1,005. Personally, I think this one looks best in light(ish) colours, at least if you want to see the buck clearly. This mesh, too, is in Pyrotechnic.

…and this is why I’m not a knight, I’d never have dared to wear that colour combination. πŸ˜›

Now. All 159 files have been compressorized, but since the textures are fairly large (and I really didn’t want to scale them down) and also have bump maps, they files are still between 400 and 600 kB each. As you can probably guess, this makes for a pretty hefty .zip file – 78 MB. 😯 So, if you’re on a slower Internet connection, or just don’t want to download all 78 MB at once, you have the option to download it in two parts (where Part 1 is the four cheapest wardrobes) – but you can also download everything in one file if you and your connection are so inclined. The choice is yours.

    • Glad you like them! πŸ˜€ Fixing the skeletons was a pain in the rear (not really difficult, but mind-numbingly boring), but I’m really happy with how they came out in the end. πŸ™‚

  1. Johanna, your talent and skill just keeps evolving. Fantastic and First Class. I think my favorites of all the wonderful wardrobes would be the 1st one and the last one. Thank you for these gifts.

    • Awww, thank you, Nonni! These days when I make things, most of the time I don’t “just” want to make something that I want in game (and think/hope others might like as well), but something that challenges me as well. With these, it would have been easy enough to just make them look pretty and leave it at that, but I’m just not geared that way, I like to push myself and see what I can do. I’m not happy unless I get to struggle for my bread and butter (well, in this case, anyway). πŸ˜‰

      I really like the first one, too! The last one I must admit I got a little fed up with, it took a bit of tweaking to make the texture work with all of Pooklet’s actions, but it did clean up nice in the end. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! Glad you like, I’m quite proud of how they turned out. πŸ˜€ (I could do without importing another CRES skeleton into Milkshape for a while, though.) Yeah, I have a feeling quite a few Downloads folders will hate me for this, my own included. πŸ˜‰

    • Wawa?! 😯 Goodness! What can I say, I’m beyond thrilled that you like my humble offerings. I always geek out completely when I learn that people whose creations I have in my Downloads folder might have some of my creations in their Downloads folders. πŸ˜€

    • Morgaine! Aren’t you a sight for sore eyes! πŸ˜€ Welcome back!

      And glad you like! πŸ™‚ I’m really happy with how these turned out. I got quite a bit for free, though; the TSM meshes were already rigged for animation, so I just had to reanimate them… and that sounded a bit more Frankensteinish than I intended. πŸ˜›

  2. I have been enjoying your downloads for a long time. I wanted to specifically thank you for taking such well-lit screenshots. Just because items are medieval doesn’t mean that it has to be dark πŸ™‚

    • Very glad to hear you like my downloads! I have lots of fun making them – and I’m absolutely thrilled when somebody comments. πŸ˜€

      I’m also glad to hear you think my screenshots are well-lit, because that is something I strive for. The title pictures might not always be all that brightly lit, but that’s because I consider them “mood shots” more often than not, that set the tone of the download (if that makes sense). But the screenshots that are meant to show how the object and its recolours look, I always take outdoors and with shadows turned off (which means there might occasionally be a bit of bloom, but I prefer bloom to gloom πŸ˜‰ ), so the downloader (hopefully) can see clearly what he or she is getting before deciding whether or not he/she wants to download it.

      One thing I really dislike personally as a downloader, is when the screenshots of an object are too dark or taken from an odd angle, or when there are things obstructing the view, so I can’t really tell what the item looks like without downloading it and looking at it in game. 😑 So my own downloaders shouldn’t have to do that.
