    Sounds good! If we need to trim down and reattach the cover strip, we can.
    If this costume is good for approval, make sure the GMLs give it to Holley Barker and not me, as she is the one wearing the kit. I'll PM you with her email address and 501NEG screen name.

    Right. Duh me. I'll go make myself another cup of coffee ASAP. When the CRL is complete and green she'll need to fill out the application for membership so she's in the database. Then the LMOses will work with the GMLses to get her approved. 

     

    The trimming of cover strips is totally up to FISD. 

     

    Another note: The CRL text in the first post probably needs mention of the squared of thigh pack if FISD wants to make that a L1 requirement.

  2. Thanks Mike. The photos look good enough to me even if some bits are out focus here and there.  

     

    The cover strip on the one thigh goes over the ridge. I'm ok with it but I'll leave that, and a no/no go on rest of the photos, up to Sarah and team. 

     

    Below is a wee test. I was a little worried that they'd be too dark but after a little bit of fiddling they're easy enough to brighten up. Someone with better photoshop skills will be able to deal with the red color bleed through hue onto the white parts. 

     

    I suggest  this costume be called The Force Unleashed Stormtrooper in the CRL. 

     

    Once FISD is happy and the CRL is green we'll tell your (our) GML to approve you.

    Yeah, that's the right game. The models are directly extracted from the game's files. The amount of weathering on the models is what was intended to be in game... although it's sometimes hard to see in game play because of the lighting and environment. 

     

    I booted up my Xbox and took these pictures of my TV screen. On Felucia, in certain lighting, it's easier to see that this costume is actually pretty dirty. 

     

     

    Darth Aloha is right about the black stripe on the ear. Since it's seen in game, it ought to be seen on the real life costume. 

    Thanks Mike. That's really helpful. I'm sort of a dummy when it comes to video games. It looks like you're right on track weathering wise.

     

    Please make sure your photos are as high resolution as possible for each view of the parts.

  4. The question on my mind is how heavily we should weight the models vs game play. It would be my preference to use as much game play as possible.

     

    I downloaded this youtube video and tool some screen shots in final cut. Hopefully I got the right video game :icon_eek:

     

     

    Ear paint evident.

    Flat thermal det panel for upper level?

    Also evidence of slight weathering and scuff marks.

    More ear paint.

    Scuffing/weathering.

    I'm open to this costume being heavily weathered but I'm not sure it looks as grimy in the game.

     

    Does anyone have a clue about the provenance of the model views? I really don't know how that stuff works.

    "Ok, unfortunately that seems to be the largest it would print since the shirt size is an XL, the model mock up is showing on a size Medium item. We can process a store credit for the item or refund."

     

    This is what they said. So if you want you can get a refund or store credit...

    Oh? That's the largest it could print? I'll keep it. It's still really cool.

  6. So... what is this FizzDee thing? How does it work exactly?

     

    It's good to be back, yo.

    Hey Dawn, thank you for the detailed update and your teams Bio's.

    We know Mr Brager well :salute:

    Looking forward to seeing your CRL improvements and guides over the next few months.

    He just likes me because I bought him a beer.

  7. Not sure if this is the correct thread to post this in, but it is the only one I found covering issues with the server move, so I give it a try:
     
    Is anybody aware of issues with notifications from FISD via email? Since the server move, I don't get any emails for incoming PMs and other things.
     
    Just me?



    I wouldn’t be surprised if some folks aren’t getting email. We did change the to way mail is sent. We’ll take a peek soon.

    Anyone else seeing problems with email notifications?

  8. Thank you Eric and Mathias for getting us over to the new server, pages definitely load quicker , all threads and forums appear to be in tact and we are back to business as usual
     


    Whew.

    What’s also nice about the new server is that the legion web team have pretty good monitoring on memory, CPU. database connections etc.... If we find that we are outgrowing the server we can add resources on the fly.

    Or the next time there is a racing shirt run or some sort of (more) plastic spaceman drama erupts and the forum gets really busy :)

  9. I've had some back and forth with support... but I made the dumb mistake of not making the ticket as "site down" I think. That means they're being kinda slow about it.

     

    For those that care... the problem is in how we display forum URLs. I don't know how it got F'd during the upgrade but it is indeed F'd up... .and I don't know how to fix it. 

     

    Hopefully they'll fix it soon. 

     

    Thanks for your continued patience.
