Heyas,

I am currently working on too many things at the same time, so I am trying to get some order into the clusterfuck πŸ™‚

Β 

I got severely sidetracked by starting to learn the basics of blender, which is eating most of my time recently. But I think the results are okay enough to move on to bigger projects.

I do have a sequence I am working on, but atm just barely. Most of the time I spend on creating toys I know some content creators would need and hopefully love. That gives me the practice and background knowledge for my next big project. (EDIT: main reason I switched to making stuff in blender was an irreversible accident while animating a pose, which made me bite my table in frustration. So I took a break from animating). I also still have a house to finish.

Next project:

A series of assets based on the Vietnam war era. More specifically timelined around / shortly after the Tet offensive. Nam-69, if you will πŸ˜„

I have started work on a military camp room, and have plans to expand on that with other appropriate rooms, like Hanoi street / bar scenes, etc. Of course over time that will also include appropriate clothing assets, but that's far enough in the future still. Clothes still scare the living shit out of me. I guess I spent a good hundred bucks today on assets.Β πŸ˜…

Before that, I do need to get the Hook5 basics straight, though, which also takes a bit of time. I use my toys to practice for that.

Why Vietnam war era? I think it's the perfect backdrop for all things sex, drugs and rock'n roll, and it is rather timeless with its very own aesthetics. It was wild and lawless.

Please! Refrain from recreating real characters and events of the war. We are an international community. What is normal in one country may be traumatic in another. Therefore, we are out of politics here. We do not want to incite hostility and split the community for historical or military-political reasons. If you want to create something with a historical theme, then please choose the style of parody, fictional history, etc. Thanks for understanding!Β πŸ™

I understand. I am not intent on recreating events, just the gist of the era.

Is that okay? I mean, if not, then all WW2 vehicles would have to be removed, too (and I am saying this as a German, mind ye!). I don't see much fictional or cartoonish about a SdKfz or a Tiger Tank. Or any specifically historically tied weapon. Doesn't seem to be traumatic to anyone. But Vietnam is where we draw a line, it seems. Why? Too many Americans here? Might replace all weapons with a cartoon gun that shoots a flag reading "Bang!".

Sorry for the sarcasm, by the way. I mean it. I just cannot make sense of it.

I think my position needs more clarification. The text below does not apply to you, but to all users of the site who read this.
Creating assets, rooms, models, vehicles, weapons, clothes is completely normal and can only offend idiots who take offense at anything.
Creating the entourage of the era (music, background events, etc.) is also not something immoral.
Creating scenes of pronounced violence and humiliation, presenting the point of view of one of the warring parties, can explode the community like a bomb.
Just imagine:
1. A scene of torture by American soldiers of a captured Vietnamese soldier (BDSM) or mockery of civilians (rape) - how will users from Vietnam, China and Southeast Asia react?
2. The scene of torture by the Viet Cong of a captured American Air Force pilot, where he is strapon (BDSM) or the scene of an American soldier falling into a trap of the Viet Cong - how will the Americans react?
This is something that is best avoided. The events of the 20th and 21st centuries carry a traumatic connotation. alive or participants in the events or their children and grandchildren. In many countries, these events are still alive in the memory of people and are a trauma (personal or public).
We live in different countries, where there is a completely different point of view on the events that have taken place. Each of us has his own view of history and his own political position.
If someone wants to tell me about freedom of speech, then I would like to remind you that the rights and freedoms of one person end where the rights and freedoms of another person begin. This is the fundamental principle of a free society.
They will ask me: "What does this mean? Nothing is possible?"
Answer: no, much is possible.
For example, war, revolution, civil unrest, or any historical event can be a backdrop for immersing yourself in a historical era. For example, American soldiers are flying in a helicopter to the music of Credence Clearwater "Fortunate Son".
Against the background of this entourage, you can come up with and shoot many scenes of a neutral nature, for example:
1. An American soldier and a nurse in a hospital;
2. Journalists on vacation;
3. Scenes of relaxation in the bar;
4. Vietnamese guy and girl in the village or the jungle.
There are many ways to show the characteristics of the era, love, sex without humiliating anyone. It can be shown that life goes on even in war, people meet each other and fall in love, make friends, communicate, etc.
In my opinion, you can even show the war without shocking scenes. For example, there is a shootout, but the dead are not shown. Or the movement of a column of armored vehicles, accompanied by infantry.
It is not necessary to create shock content with scenes of cutting off limbs or raping prisoners.
If someone makes a parody of the movie Predator in the Jungle, there will hardly be any problems. I doubt there are Yautja users on the site.Β πŸ‘½
If someone shoots a video about how the brave American soldiers rape the captured Viet Cong, then we will get the indignation of the Vietnamese and Americans at the same time. And here it should not matter whether some countries are represented on our site or not. It doesn't matter who else is here. We are an international community and we must be above this, that is, outside of politics. To justify and exalt one side and humiliate the other side is not a worthy behavior for any person.

Yeah - in general, just avoiding content that is showing humiliating scenery, or too overly violent or degrading, or something that could be truly put as crime or war crime. KOYOT put some good examples above.

But the content as mod addons itself, were not censoring them and never will ... there are still mods of all types, like Nazi and Soviet uniforms, equipment, etc ... it would be dumb to censor, as then everything would be censored that is along the lines of ideology, religion or politics. Ofc, our rule is specifically relating to discussions on forums, not on mod addons / content. That way, we can have all content, but it should be presented in more neutral ways.

What I mentioned to McKeu also ... TK17 is such a game where you dont have too large environments. The scenes for something like battle or war arent exactly too good ... particle effects are fairly limited, too. So, the scenes are smaller, and relatively constrained. Some close interiors, like bunkers and similar could always be interesting ... but imagine something like Vietnamese jungle ... uhh ... that would bog down performance quickly, sadly. It would require a TON of optimization and clever workarounds.

@KOYOT909Β & @x17

Yeah, I do not really plan on such things. What people do with it afterwards is not really up to me, though. πŸ˜„

EDIT:

The "rooms" are mere backdrops and are not focused on anything fight related. The Hanoi scenes would be more nightlife related than anything else, for example.

Yes, I understood from the description of your project that you intend to create assets, not scenes.Β πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

We wrote all this for those who, including your content, can use it for any bad purposes. Our words are a clarification of the community's position to prevent incitement of hatred and propaganda of any ideologies on the site. I hope people will listen to us.

Yeah, I am fed up with animations for the moment, since I ruined one and lost my nerve over it πŸ˜„

Maybe in a couple of days or weeks I might start again.

Yes, you need to give yourself a rest. This is a hobby, not a job. Otherwise burnout will occur.
