Volunteer needed

Hi guys,

I am in need of a little help here trying to complete the sound engine part of the game.
What I would need is to find out all sounds that are associated to the animations of any LBA1 models.

I have created a small tool which can link a sound to a keyframe of an animation and listen to the result. (See attached image)

So I would need is someone with some free time who would be willing to manually go over all models and associate all needed sounds using the tool.
This could be quite some work since there is many model and one would have to replay part of LBA1 to make sure which sound are played in the original game.
But it would be really helpful to me to be able to deliver the same sound atmosphere as the original game. + you would get your name as a contributor in the Lbanet team

Thanks in advance to any volunteer. But please post only if you are really willing to achieve the task from the beginning to the end

Here is a second task I would need help for:

I am looking for a simple 3D model of Twinsun for the holomap for LBANet. I only could get the texture of the original game (attached)
but I was not able to extract the original model.

I have seen in this thread: http://forum.magicball.net/showthrea...=holomap+model that long time ago people have made a quick model of the planet.
I would need something like this. Nothing complicated, not high quality, basically, same as LBA1 original game.

I would be very happy and thankful if somebody could help me there as I am not at all a modeler

Darkflame made an animation a long time ago, it was to show how Twinsun rotates (in theory), I'm pretty sure Twinsun was modelled in it.

edit : found it, you'll still need to contact him for the model itself though.

I just used a sphere for that expanded in the middle a bit.

I could knock up a model really quick geometry wise (any res)if someone wanted to make a heightmap for it :P

I think expanded sphere would actually be enough. I really don't need high res stuff.

Any 3d format would do, obj would be the most simple one.

In a bit of a hurry, but I fixed DF's model, had some holes in it. Tweaked the UV seams (spheres always tricky) and tweaked the texture a bit.

change .zip directly to .obj and it should work.

yes, I guess my exporter isnt too good at obj.
Suprised it had seems though - default spherical uvmapping texture on a geosphere should be seamless. (allthough distorted,naturaly)

There's always seams when you unwrap I mean there's always edges of UV pieces (in this case one big piece), and those edges reconnect somewhere so there will be a seam. Spheres are particularly hard to unwrap without visible distortion.

I don't know what happened with the mesh though. Some kind of poly count reducer/weld? Some parts have way more mesh density. Maybe that's where the weld failed on some parts

Yeeh I used a displacement system thats supposed to put more detail where needed. Guess that makes it harder to export.

Regarding seams, yes, your right, but I meant the left/right texture should be the same. (unless the LBA texture itself wasnt correct?). I made the heightmap I used seamless anyway.

Ah I get your point. However the UV sides weren't straight/vertical, so that caused the tiling problems. Laid out like a rectangle it would work indeed, this had a more elaborate shape, makes the tiling a bit harder. I'll try and see if I can fix it.

Looks great thanks a lot!
Just one little detail left: I found one hole left on the sphere, see screenshot.
