Pseudo-Zeus
Version 1.2
__________________________________________________

About
This will swap Thunderbringer's current model of a monkey to a re-textured version of Blacksmith with lightning effects, as-seen-on-DotA! It includes all of the sounds from Zeus in DotA, including taunting, and icons (semi-low quality, sorry!)

This is my first contribution to the Customizations forum!! Yay!! Also, The idea was taken from: http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/showthread.php?t=76896. MaxGhost's grayscaled texture was used as a base aswell.

Very very nice, im using now :D
I'm also trying to change ultimate effect, that when he does it he creates a lightning vortex around him (like in star wars:force unleashed)

Yeah, you can get the temporary file there, without the resource number. Just waiting for one of the mods to grant me 2022.

Only thing we need now is a blacksmith monkey so the swap is complete.

I'm getting a very interesting problem when using this. If you've ever lagged and seen your character move without walking then you will know what i'm talking about. Zeus refuses to take steps, just sliding to his destination of choice. This is what happens constantly in normal games when using this addon (for me); however, when I'm in a Practice game Zeus will walk normally. I'm not sure if this is a "me" issue or the addon issue. Good skin though, I really like it.

I'll try asap and tell u my experience.

Edit:
Yep it's true Zeus won't move his legs in real games.

I didn't really test in real games, but I remeber this occuring with my old model swaps of S2 models by BlacRyu. So I'm not sure if this was an error in my edits or if it's common in all customizations.

Use the model.mdf from the original hero (TB) and just modify the clip and fps attributes to get it to use the new animations.

Not sure why you have to do it this way, I think maybe the animations have to be listed in the same order as they were originally or it gets them confused.

This does indeed usually fix it, you can check replays to simulate a real game.

He went and stole Devourers cleaver. :D
So should I leave it like that or try and make it more like Wc3 Zeus cleaver?

Edit:
Added link to download the model if anyone is interested.
Cleaver uses Devourers texture.
Also there is no low or med quality model yet.
If anyone wants I could make them.

"He"? You mean "I".

I didnt steal anything! He did it! By he I meant Zeus :P

BlacRyu

I compressed those textures for the cleaver to about 1/100th of the size since most of it wasn't needed.

Also I changed his projectile effects to a hammer:

Oh wow BlacRyu, that looks very well done! I wonder though, would Zeus look better without the cape? Just a thought, it may be fun to mess around with that :P

02-14-2010, 06:05 PM
Two hammers looks better imo. Btw legs moves normal in real game? Or still not-moving?

BlacRyu
02-14-2010, 06:27 PM
I didn't fix it, Kesh can handle that.

Made a quick edit to the cleaver to get rid of the pointy part:

Its nice to see this evolving :)
Nice hammer projectile btw.
Totally forgot that the original Zeus had that.

Edit:
I could just turn the cleaver around if you want it that way.
Edit2:
The pointy part is facing other direction now.

Updated with BlacRyu's projectile, wasn't able to get the cleaver to work though... Walking SHOULD be fixed, working on my end when I watch replays now.

Just replace all the xxx.models in the top of the mdf file with zeus.model

You cant give Zeus Devourer stolen cleaver because he will break it while casting - he smashes his hammers now when casting. That would be so uncool...

When i put the folder in there is only a blue version from him with 2 hammers in practice mode is that intended ??

Keshoon
02-15-2010, 01:19 PM
He should be silver with 2 hammers and lightning effects around him. There shouldnt be a folder either, so don't extract the s2z.

Daaadom
02-15-2010, 01:45 PM
?? But it is still a ZIP file, so how to use it when not extract ??

Keshoon
02-15-2010, 01:55 PM
Keep it as a s2z file, then just place in your game folder, where resources0.s2z is.

Daaadom
02-15-2010, 02:00 PM
Sorry dude, maybe i am to dumb ... but it doesnt work, can u just post the
s2z file ... so i can DL this ...

Keshoon
02-15-2010, 02:33 PM
The s2z file is on the first post, where you download it. If it's giving you a zip file by default, go here: http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/showthread.php?t=62707

Look at FAQ #1.

I know people don't go SoTM for TB (i do :/), but SoTM removes the lightning around your model. Can you fix that?
And can you let SoTM make his hammer/cleaver glow? :)

Keshoon

If anyone wants to fix it, let me know and I'll upload it. I have no access to the stuff on my computer other than basic stuff.
