This was a personal project i wanted to see to completion, though i noticed that some others had wanted this mod as well while working on this. Currently there is only one costume, and eventually i plan to make more into different colors or themes. There is an unfixable issue with the shoulders, namely that no matter how they're rigged, they simply won't stay attached to the body. This is an unfortunate issue, but it is simply one we will need to deal with until a better solution arises. For anyone inquiring about a classic Eggman mod or using a higher poly model for this idea, let me say some things. 1. i am not interested in making classic Eggman, nor did the notion come across when i thought to do Eggette. Given the size of Eggette and Bowser Jr, this makes the most sense. (also there is ALREADY an Eggman mod out, so please no more hassling me about that) And 2. i ATTEMPTED to use a higher poly model of Eggette, but there were 3 problems trying to use it. There were WAY too many polys and it would've tremendously lagged the game up. The model could be simplified to have less polys, but the various parts would then get jagged and hard to keep smoothed, even with the "smooth" modifier. And lastly, the fact that parts kept going missing when importing it meant that there was simply too much to work with.Until
a better model is made (one of higher quality, yet not too many
polygons), this is literally the very best i can make do with. With all of that aside, i would like to thank you guys for supporting this mod and hope further that you enjoy this mod as much as i have! There is a metal form and CSPs, as well as a victory theme included. Some of the weapons and textures included belong to SEGA, all rights reserved.
I'm looking forward to when the model and textures will be updated to make the texture resolution and model appeal of the other characters. Good work on making the character work over the initial rigs. The little robot enemies and the vehicle itself really make this mod stand out; it has a unique appeal to it
Looks good! Agree with the low-poly/high-poly consistency that others mentioned, but if there was one thing I'd ask to turn up it would be the texture quality, especially on the Motobug. Otherwise great mod! Very original idea.
Personally, I would prefer if the style of this model stayed consistent, with both Eggette and the ship being low or high poly, credit where credit is due. It's a very nice concept and you did the best you could with what you were given.
Hyyyyyype! I'm definitely going to enjoy using this skin. You worked really hard on this and it shows. This skin went from a fantasy into reality and that's always an amazement when I see it happen. I hope to see even more from you in the future.
In all honesty, i came up with the idea for making the mod myself after seeing some fanart of Eggette, beside of Bowser Jr. How similar they seemed, with their aircrafts and ambition to destroy the protagonist, it just felt right to put Eggette into Smash as a sort of rival to Bowser Jr. I did most of the work on my own, but it was tiring to do all alone. I asked for help plenty of times along the creation of this mod and thankfully some people helped me. Said people are, but not limited to; GucciPoochie, DSX8, TNN, seth bones and ih8ih8sn0w. It didn't hit me until later when Valhalen mentioned he wanted this that he actually requested this, and i then felt like i was unintentionally fulfilling another request. It made me feel good to do something people wanted, though some less that others. With the skin complete, i can only hope people can appreciate this as much as those who have supported me in the WIP. :)
