Nightmare Moon Final For Gmod and SFM by BlackArmsGeneral Nightmare Moon Final For Gmod and SFM by BlackArmsGeneral
This is the final version of Nightmare Moon I will make. Includes a version for gmod and for Source Filmmaker

New in this Release:

Fixed: Shadows for gmod and Source Filmmaker
Fixed: Ambiant Occlusion for Source Filmmaker
Fixed: Miss-colored shoes in Gmod

Working on this model was the most fun I have ever had in 3d modeling. It was my dream to have a show accurate Nightmare Moon in Gmod. I learns, I laughed, I cried and I hated. It is time for me to let go and move on to other things.

Her source will be released later on when I am certain that it is cleaned and ready for anybody to tinker with.

Hey I named the folder that was called "For Gmod" to "Nightmare Moon" either way I added the folder to my addons and she is not even on my spawn list. I even search her and she is not there. I know I sound like a tard. But please do tell me where to put it. Much thanks to those who help.

First, this is not the newest version that I made, a quick look at my gallery would have revield this: blackarmsgeneral.deviantart.co…

Second, you don't rename the "For GMod" folder, you take the "mlppack" folder out of the "For GMod" folder, drop it into your addons and merge it with the other mlppack folder you should alreayd have (if you don't have it this addon will not work)

And finnaly my versions of this model are outdated and the project was taken over by BeardedDoomGuy, you can find his version here: sfm-ponies.deviantart.com/art/…

I con't help you with the discord model, but try useing this version of Nightmare, it's newer and fixes most problems I;ve heard of: blackarmsgeneral.deviantart.co…

Make absolutely sure that you delete EVERY SINGLE FILE from the older version  or it WILL NOT WORK.

The SFM Model seems fine, but the helmet and neck brace have the purple and black checkerboard color. I placed the folder 'nightmaremoon' in materials like all the others. And the 6 model files in models like all the pony models. Everything else is the right color. I don't know what I'm doing wrong and could very much use some help.

Ah, found it. go under materials, then models, then mlp, then nightmaremoon

find the dark_collar VMT (not VTF) and open it with notepad. you'll see this

"models\mlp\dark_collar"

change it to this

"models/mlp/nightmaremoon/dark_collar"

save, then find the helm VMT and open it with notepad and change

"models\mlp\nmm_helm"

to

"models/mlp/nightmaremoon/nmm_helm"

and save.

Thanks, that did help. The helmet is great, but now the collar is a solid grey color.
These are the specs with the first change:
"VertexLitGeneric"
{
\ "$baseTexture" "models/mlp/nightmaremoon/dark_collar"
"$envmap" "env_cubemap"
"$envmaptint" "[.05 .05 .05]"
"$phong" "1"
"$phongboost" "3"
"$phongfresnelranges" "[0.05 0.5 1]"
"$phongexponent" "20"

}

Could you tell me what's wrong. I have no idea when it comes to software programming

Thats exactly the same as whats in mine. the collar SHOULD be the same color as the rest of the armor. try redownloading and reinstalling (making the previous fixes ofcourse) and you are testing them on a new map/session right? not one where you've already done lighting, cameras, and models, etc?

here's how I installed mine. a extracted the zip as is onto my desktop. opened the usermod folder, then I opened the nightmaremoon folder. went to sfm version. then usermod, then dragged the materials and models folder into my sfm usermod folder. it asked to merge then, a said yes.

then later i opened the files mentioned for the fixes.

If that doesn't work I'm afraid I don't know what to do from there. there were times previous were a model would be a bit off at first, but reinstalling seemed to fix it.

Followed the procedure and the entire model is corrected. For every test, I did create a new session every time. So no lighting or camera work. But the re-download and fixes have made it work. Thanks.

No problem. :)

SFM is a great tool, but can be very quirky at times.

Same here. Just got the model now. merged the folders like I did with all my other models (including the CMC and Male pony models here) and Helm and collar have the checkerboard pattern of a texture not loading. Everything else is fine though. and all the models look great.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention BUT maybe this is just my end.

For some reason there is not enough body groups to remove all of her armor in SFM.

But once again maybe that's SFM on my end and maybe there's another way around this, I have yet to figure it out though it seems.


I thank you a second time for providing this.



PS: although I can't do it via paypel AND I have yet to look and see if you're open for commissions, but I gotta get my hands on a 3D pony of MicSet for both Gmod and SFM.
I've been looking around in many areas including Second Life and I have had no luck.
If I ever did get paypel or find another way around this, will this be possible?

Thank you (third time) and take care, looking forward to tinkering and getting the more of a grip of SFM. ^.=.^

it's actually a problem with SFM it self. It is possible to remove it all, but you need to muck about in the element viewer. It's another thing I'm thinking of making a tutorial (SFM only shows about 5 body groups when in reality NMM has a total of about 22 combinations)

Also, although I am open for commissions, I do not do commissions for pony models, especially not for any source game. It is copyright infringement to use the Source SDK for any kind of profit. Do not let anybody charge you for Gmod or SFM models. Also, I usually don't do requests ether... but this isn't the place to talk about it. If you are really interested still, send me a note with some pictures and we can discus this in private.

I actually have a lot of videos I want to make, but I suck at lipsynching her manually. and due to a lack of good maps for sfm in general, I'm stuck making things like this [link]

Hey man, I'm wondering. Will you ever release a Discord model? Or perhaps one for Chrysalis and a changeling?

BlackArmsGeneral Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
there are already 3 WIP Discord, if one doesn't get made, it was never meant to be. As for The changelings, it all depends. I'm really losing interest in modeling in general and, frankly, it cuts into my money making time.
