Alien Artifact - Free Model by joseph-sweet Alien Artifact - Free Model by joseph-sweet
----Update----
Okay. Completely redid this. Thanks to :iconean-sze: for original conversion to poser format. She did a great job on the second go, but I didn't upload that one because I had completely redone the model, painted it to make some proper texture maps instead of just slapping a texture on it in poser, which didn't look so great. I did use some of the code from the pp2 file she provided in the one I made for this one to help me understand how she got the bump map to stay in place as well as a couple of other things. I learned a bit from that, so thanks. :) I did a lot of editing in text format, but man I have to get a program that edits pp2 files, cuz it's a pain in the butt. In this one, I've included the four texture maps shown above, specially made for this model, and it loads right into poser with the 2nd texture from the left fully loaded. The eyes in the scene above are all the same texture. You just need to change the ambient color on preview 2 and 3 to white, blue, green, or red (left to right) as shown above or whatever color you want to get those results. Also helps to add a UV reflection in the advanced tab. To get the effect of the translucent crystal on the left, use the crystal map included, (crystal-mask-oldoneright2.png) which unzips to runtime/textures and apply it to diffuse, highlight, and ambient. Then change the diffuse color to black, the highlight and ambient colors to white, and set the translucency to 25%. then add the texture and do the same to the teeth and it will render like the picture above. Also you will want to go to the advance tab and down to where it says reflection color and click the plugin button and go "new node/lighting/specular/anistropic. - Adds a Uv reflection. I may make more maps for it in the future. If you want something specific, let me know.
The sculptris safe .obj file is still included in the geometries folder for those of you that want to import this to sculptris and play around with it.
One last note: I did notice when I installed this a couple of times that on all occasions, poser asked me for one texture and I had to browse and point it towards runtime/textures in my content folder. This might not happen for you. It might be because my content folder is on an external drive. If it happens though, just point it to that folder and everything else works fine.

(most of last update irrelevant, so deleted.)

Just in time for the supposed imminent apocalypse (that will - I'm betting - find us all waking up to chirping birds, polluted waters, air and soil, bad politics and economy and the same old daily grind as usual tomorrow) The generic Alien Artifact!!! For that scene that needs an idol for alien worshipers or a symbol of a long lost race... Maybe just an old rusted relic to have lying amidst the clutter in the ruins of your post apocalypse scene, or something for your Indiana Jones or Lara Croft wannabe's to discover. You could use it as a mask, or even replace your character's head with it in poser, or hang it on the wall for your characters rare mask collection. Whatever the use, I'm sure you'll find something to do with it. Maybe you want to render it and worship it because you actually believe the world is coming to an end soon. If so, more power to you. You gotta have something to believe, right? In that spirit, here ya go. Something to believe in. Just for you. Enjoy. lol.

Now, I only included one texture and one bump map for the head and one texture for the eyes. They are made by me from photos that I took and photoshop work. The other textures that you see on the left-hand side are from renders done in Sculptris. It's a free 3D sculpting program like Zbrush, only simpler. Those textures are by me as well, but I wanted the download to be small. the top one is the one already included for the eyes. the bottom one is on my stock site already at joseph-sweet-stock.deviantart.com and the middle one will be up there later tonight. There's also a rust texture that I made for the head up at the top right. I may upload that one tonight as well. It's not seemless, but you could make it that way, and hey, it's free. :) The eyes are shown in different colors. that's all the same texture, I just applied the texture in the material room in poser under ambient and made the color the color that I wanted the eyes to be. It's that easy. Also, for some reason, when I saved the model, it changed all of the part names. so they're listed as preview 2 through 15 in poser and null 1 Null 1 is the head 3-15 is the teeth and 2-3 are the eyes. You will have o apply the textures when you load it if you use poser. I don't now how to make it a prop in poser 7. :shrug: If you use poser, as I did for these renders, go to file/import/wavefront obj and select the file. then apply the mats in the material room. I also included a sculptris safe version so you can play with it in there if you want. I would appreciate a link back if you use this since it was a freebie, but if you make something unique out of it in sculptris you don't have to. It would be nice to see what you guys do with it. Just don't upload this elsewhere as your own or claim you made it. Have a ball.
Also, as I haven't mentioned it, feel free to use this in any venture, commercial or otherwise. If I ended up seeing it on a book, album cover, poster or something that would be cool. :)

np. I've since fixed it up, painted it for a proper texture map and had someone fixing the poser problems but then I changed a bunch of things so I had to redo it all. If you watch for it over the next few days, I should have it up as well as another, smaller, alien mask prop. When I upload it, it will include four new texture maps made specially for it instead of just slapping a texture over it. :) The file size will be bigger though.

Just uploaded the updated version with four texture maps. Hope you like it. You can put it on your site if you put my name with it. I forgot to put a readme in the rar file and on my incredibly slow internet connection it took three hours to upload it today. lol.

Cool. I hope people get some use out of it. I'll be posting a smaller download for it when I get time. I'm working on a weapon pack now and some other stuff but I don't know if I'm going to be able to finish it right away due to some other projects going on.

You've an for the character who can use the pack? Wanna made it for V4/M4 or other characters?

Right now it's a couple of scifi rifles and handguns. Was thinking of a plasma sword too but haven't started work on that yet. I am not sure how to make them smart props for certain characters yet, but when I get them done I'll research it. I'm sure the info will be out there when I need it. I would probably do it for V4 and M4, but if it doesn't end up being a huge pain I could do it for some others. I think it just involves making a pose file that loads the prop and makes the parent for it the characters left or right hand so that when the character's hand moves the prop moves.

I faved it. I uploaded the newest version. Sorry that I didn't end up using the latest poser version that you sent me. I had completely redone it by then. I did end up using some of the code from your pp2 file in my pp2 file, though, to help me understand how you got the bumpmap and eye textures to stay. I learned quite a bit from it, so thanks. I credited you for that. The new one has four texture maps specially made for this model, though, and I had to rebuild it to paint it. If you check it out, I hope you like it and thanks for all of your help :)

I will definitely check that out. I downloaded PropViewer to convert .obj to .pp2, but that sounds very handy as well. :) Thanks.

can make smaller download file
have incorporated .obj file to .pp2 file but leave .obj file in Geometry folder as unnecessary.

glad to help :)

I thought it seemed unnecessary, but I read somewhere that the .obj file was needed for reference. I'll try it. Would have saved me time. lol. It took me three hours to upload. I live out in the middle of nowhere and the crappy dial up out here is so slow I sometimes want to gouge out my eyes with a pencil. :)

nothing in pp2 refer to it and nothing know it there so a unnecessary !
also change Textures to textures (case sensitive) and should begin to work either in .pp2 for folder.

this one can enjoy my city life here than :D

:) I'm learning new stuff every day. I found a program called mat pose edit that creates pose files and some other stuff too when I went to download that program you told me about. I think it was on a different site. I was looking around. It looks like the material room when it comes up.
It's a little outdated, but I'm hoping it works well. Haven't had time to play around with it yet.

:) Well. ten minutes to go until the apocalypse. What do you think?
No pun intended, but if it's the end of the world as we know it, I feel fine... Okay pun intended. I think the old man is crazy. But everyone knew that. It will be fun to make fun of him for the next however many years until he dies or comes up with a new prediction though. :)

I know, right... got jipped. That made me laugh. I was listening to K-rock in the background earlier and the DJ kept having this guy on taking about zombies. lol.
Nope, no zombies, earthquakes, mass flooding, meteors... nothing. But wait... How do we know nothing happened? Maybe what really happened is the dormant super black hole at the center of our galaxy finally became active and is currently sucking everything into it at a super fast rate, but because of temporal distortion caused by the massive gravitational pull, time has slowed to a crawl and it only seems like things are going on as normal. Maybe the fifteen second destruction of all that we know will seem to take ten years. Now wouldn't that suck? lol.

LOL. I have no idea who that is. Shows how much I pay attention. I guess the next crop of apocalypse nuts will come out now. The ones working with the other mathematical coefficient used to convert the Mayan calendar or whatever. I read somewhere that there were two popular mathematical codes that put the end of the calendar in two different years. One May 2011, and one December 2012. I'm sure they'll all jump on the other bandwagon now. They'll be gathering naked in the streets drinking poisoned punch, and callin for the aliens to come for them before you know it. It'll be like woodstock, only with worse drugs, crappier music, and lotsa dead people. I think I messed up my historical references. lol Jim Jones was the poisoned punch and Hail bop was poisoned pudding? I get confused... Or was that Heaven's gate? I haven't been watching the news, so I don't know for sure, but I haven't heard of any mass suicides, so guess people aren't as nuts as I thought. Score 1 for humans this round. You know, if there are aliens, and they discovered us, we gotta be the next best thing to network cable to them. They probably watch us for laughs to see what we'll do next. I ramble when I haven't slept in like twelve hours. lol. sorry. Kids just went down for a nap though. That means I get to take one... Yay.
