Name's Almighty Nick, though very soon you will start calling me Aeri or senpai.

I am the former SFM-Ponies RU Chief Admin, animator and modeler, now working for my own profit. I use Source Filmmaker in most of my artworks. Other artists call SFM some easily-mastered crap. I make efforts to prove the different.

Have fun here.

Do-Or-Die December

Fri Dec 1, 2017, 7:51 PM
Okay I'm back. And I failed no nut November. Ugh.

So I've read the last new year journal I had and realized that I accomplished almost no goals out of it. I think it's time I actually did something. Some real self-made challenge of sorts.
One of the things on my list was completion of all my commissions. So...

On this December I solemnly swear to get ALL my shit done or die trying.

Since I'm not taking orders no more (thanks to Patreon and my NSFW side project) I'll be finishing my commissions this month. After the whole list is clear, my prices will escalate twice to battle the order quantity. Yes, 30$ for a horse. 10$ for a prop. Why so much? I'm a fucking star, these aren't just models, these are models from Me! Ego intensifies, you know.

Also check out some models I did not bother to post here cause of depression.





Aaaand the queen of the stage, which is special snowflake because it's not a commission:


This bat enhanced reference, wings and eye coloring template will soon be included in my Patreon's SFW Mate tier. So if you feel like supporting an egomaniac bastard like myself in this time of desperation and unstoppable modeling, feel free to tip your 5$ into the jar of Cyberbullying.
There are also porn tiers but I never told you that.

Cheers.

I'm taking a break

Mon Oct 23, 2017, 7:36 AM
Let's put this straight - I'm depressed.
Not cus of lack of credit or something, no.

My desktop, sourcefiles and finished projects folder are fucking mess.
Each time I start a new project, more stuff piles up at desktop because I tend to work at several models at once.
My sourcefiles are crammed with temporary shit that I let stay there for too long and now can't even figure what's important and what is not.
And since I'm starting patreon, I need to refine my canon sourcefiles and ready them for use.

Long story short, all of this disturbs me heavily when I work, so..

I'm taking a week off.
Don't REEEEE here, it's my final decision.
Thanks for possible understanding.

To those who wondered if I'll make any more The Movie characters - no, I won't.
Besides, all those that you asked have already been taken by other community modelers.
Don't ask me to do them please. I already owe a bunch of commissions, let me finish these first.
[DL/Sourcefiles] Enhanced Mares DMX Kit
BATS ARE HERE!
Normal bats I mean, not mine.
As seen at this pic:  SableSymphony [SFM Download] by Warhorse26
I've made ears hipolier and tweaked their topology to exclude lighting issues.
There was no spare flexspace so I made fangs physical. They will always show up.
Thanks to :iconwarhorse26: for poking me to get them done.

Another thing, :iconargodaemon: allowed me to include his organizing script into the download (yea, mine is a mess really).
It should work perfect with both old ad DMX enhanced models, including custom ones, like Tempest Shadow.

-------

HUGE UPDATE! Presets are back.
Yea, those presets that allow you to make a pose or funny face with one slider, instead of setting up the thing for hours or months. A panacea for the lazy.
 
Recently :iconjdash42: messaged me to tell me that presets don't work on my horses. He also had a hint to a solution and shared it with me.
It turned out that .pre files of presets are a kind of dmx file. Yea, no shit. I even made a meme:
 -1 by AeridicCore 

Now guess whom did win.
JDash shared info with me on how to convert them to dmx. Not just dmx, but a readable code dmx that can be edited. I know how to deal with that so it was pretty easy.
And now we have working presets. Beat that, Source Engine.

This update includes the new preset folder in ponies_source directory. Inside there are preset files, both decoded and encoded, and a readme with instructions on how to get them running.
I've also included .bat files, but dA's antihack or whatever script refused to upload the archive with executables in it, so I replaced all dots in extensions with commas. If you wanna tackle the insides of .pre files, change all commas into dots again.

Other changes:
- LipUp/Down flexes have been made into stereoflexes.
- Stereobalance has been changed from 98% into 96% for smoother transition.
- A duplicated "MAXIMUM Strength" flex has been removed from Fluttershy base.
- Advanced flex info file has been renamed from "flex_reference_rd_enh.txt" into "flex_reference_enh.txt". For Blender users I really recommend to delete the old txt not to confuse it with the new one. They are different, believe me.

Again, big thanks to :iconjdash42: for making this update possible.

-------

Before I explain myself, a history lesson.
A while ago, a guy named :iconjuicedane: released a pack of ponies that had some better (and more) facial features than the v4 ones. All was cool, except for one thing - for us Blender dwellers, he refused to release sourcefiles, said we could decompile stuff ourselves. 
Yea, of course we can, but tell me please how do we manage triangles and broken VTAs? Kinda dick move, eh? Makes it hard for the creation of custom bases. I said "meh" and forgot these existed.
For a while being, all the models I made for my customers were v4. Simply because a while ago I composited some DMX files for these and utilised them fully. The main difference between conventional SMD and DMX is that the latter is capable of having flexes inbound, has original geometry and overall compiles faster. Two reasons why I haven't converted enhanced ponies to DMX were stereoflexes and the fact that the base was assymetrical (more or less skillful blender users will understand me here). Gladly, I've managed to deal with these issues, and here we are.

Introducing Enhanced DMX sourcefiles. 99% close to the original ones that JuiceDane had. Or 97%. Or 60%. Or even better.  I dunno, I always had C- at math.
WARNING! This sourcepack is an addon to :iconponinnahka:'s v4 ponies sourcepack. Before downloading it, make sure this is installed: Overhaul Pony Source Files by Poninnahka 

Also be sure to use Source Filmmaker's studiomdl.exe when compiling. Other compilers cannot adequately interprete advanced DMX, which are these bases.


So how are these better than the  existing enhanced sourcepack  by :iconstefano96:?
Since I migrated to Blender totally, in my sourcefiles I've been mindful of other modelers. My goal was to simplify life for everyone who uses them, myself included. With mesh detriangulated and symmetry finally there, one can make a custom pony base out of these almost as easy as of a v4.
Actually, even easier, since there are no detriangulated v4's in public... yet.
Also, it's way easier to manipulate flexes. You can change whatever - remove some of these, replace them with your own, make edits - and you don't have to fear that something will break. DMX files are devoid of common VTA problems, and since the mesh is absolutely symmetrical, left/right flexes will always have equal proportions if you enable X Mirror in edit mode. No need for that pesky mirror modifier now!

As for benefits for the common folk - the compilation now got faster and the qc template file has been unified. That means that if you change your mind about the base and want try something new, you won't need to grab a proper qc with proper VTA info and copy paste all bodygroups and whatever from your older qc. Instead, you change the body line - it won't affect flexes, they will still work. Also, this qc contains uncommented hints that will help novice modelers to get along with source pony compiling.

Another WARNING! Garry's Mod support has been halted. I wanted to preserve these models at their original. So please, if you want a simplified enhanced version of your pony that works in GMod, I suggest that you use Stefano's sourcepack for it. Mine and his don't conflict in any way.
Also, there's a sfm_defaultanimationgroups file that systematizes controls in SFM. Since most flexes have been renamed (mostly because of underscores issues with DMX), I suggest that you install that too. It won't break the one JuiceDane made, more like add to it.

:iconjuicedane: - the one who actually made the enhanced thing
:iconstefano96: - the one whose sourcepack materials I used to create this thing.
:iconfillerartist: - thanks for testing it for me.

Preview picture by me, obviously. It's horrible. No, horsible.

[DL] Batponies Source Pack
Hey lads, have a bite of this. The Batpony Sourcepack comes in hot as a Day 6's release of the Weel Of 3Dgy Stuff.

7days by AeridicCore 

Update 1: Fixed the teeth material mirror bug, thanks to :iconmonmonstar: for pointing it out.

Update 2: Fixed the missing Chest2 bone (how the flying fuck did it disappear?), thanks to :iconwonderlandmmd: for telling me about that.
Really people, a year passed and only then you started sending helpful feedback?

This is a result of several batpony commishes I have received. I wondered "what if I make a unified base for these and ease it for myself?" - and here it comes.

These models have alternate ears, but if you don't like them, you can try removing them in Blender or wherever - the mesh is full-quads, so it will be much easier to select loops and such. Also DMX has all the flexes written into it, speaking of which - you won't have any problems with compiling them anymore. There is a unified QC included which will help you turn any female pony into a bat.

SVG file included to help you recolor it lossless. If you don't use Inkscape or Illustrator, there's also a TGA file for you.

I also made custom razor sharp killer teeth that are fully responsible to flexes. And they look hella good too.

To all haters/whoever loves to poke their nose and state that this is not a canon bat look, reminder - yes, this is not canon. This is a custom set of bat bases I made for myself of comission parts and own ideas and decided to share. If you don't like it, just don't fav it and be about your business, no need to make your statement in the comment section. If you like it - then fav it. Fair, right? And watch me. Cause I'm cool.

 And by the way, there's a cool set of eyes made special for the occasion, and it looks badass with this base. Go grab a Season Pass now, it's youir last chance until tomorrow, because they will be gone for a very long time.

I'm not asking for a commission here, but I'm really looking forward to see Trouble Shoes, Capper, and the parrot pirates as Gmod models.

Is that alright?
