 Xmas surprise

By moomoo on December the 24th, 2009 under Ekaiyo project

First of all, hello. It's been a while since anyone posted, and about forever since I posted. To make up for this, I present the following:

The Pokedex has been updated with over 25 new Pokemon. Gamefreak2kx (also known as Dr Freak) was bugging me to get my material settings so I did, and he thought it would be a nice Christmas surprise for you all to get a big Dex update.

There are a few more models in the waiting list so check back tomorrow(or later today, depending on when you're reading this). Until then, enjoy such marvels as Troive's Blastoise and Tyler's Aerodactyl IN MIND-BLOWING 3D! (<-- text can't echo, but imagine that bit echoing)

Now I'm gonna catch some sleep. Let me conclude by saying I'll do my best to get a bit more active on the project again(for those who don't know, I moved out of my parents' house over a year ago and have been without an Internet connection since). And let's throw in a good old 'Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!' while I'm at it.

Laroon has joined the Pokémodeling team and sent in his Hitmonlee model. Nice work man.


 Model list update

By moomoo on August the 19th, 2007 under Ekaiyo project

For the past few days I've been working with the rest of the 3D graphics guys (the ones that were present anyway) to make a detailed list of Pokémon models that are completed or in the works. We have posts for this on the forums but I didn't update them for the longest time, and the format sn't very handy either. We now have an online document where the modelers can easily see exactly what models are needed, and what stage each model is in. It's just a spreadsheet but at least we can sort by things like priority, original modeler, level of completion, etc.

This doc itself isn't public, however I will regularly export it and put it on the website - I will replace the two topics in the forum with just a link to the page.

I haven't started on any new models myself since finishing the Gyarados. I'll be focusing on working through the list of models that have been sent to me that I haven't checked yet.

Here is the list. As I said it's exported from the actual spreadsheet so it will not be updated automatically but rather only when I do it manually. I will probably only update it when models are completed or new ones claimed.


 Thank God, it's not a LiveJournal!

So, the new website is up, and we finally got to reveal that animation we held from you for two weeks.

I already said it in the comments there but I'll repeat it here: the video does not use ingame graphics, it's pre-rendered. It does show what we hope Ekaiyo will look like (at least!), and the Pokémon models are just the game models. They haven't been smoothened or given extra detail, so graphics like these are not outside the realm of possibility.

Wow, sure is long since my last blog entry.
