Hello, Brains here and I got an interesting discussion for this week's/months post as this being April (And April Fool's just past). But here it is..
First off all, there are a lot of good models out there . Don't get me wrong. Sure some are made in different Languages (Chinese/Russian/Serbian) and sure sometimes the models are rigged right , and sometimes they aren't and it's the latter ones I am going to focus on..
And what I'm referring to is in fact how modelers rig their bones inside their models.. as it seems that some models have no set rules for rigging and since PMXEditor sometimes isn't very helpful, it takes a lot of times to hunt down an issue if there is a problem with the rigging. I mean right now a model is only as good as the model maker who made it , right?
Like right now I'm working on trying to fix up a model that I found on MMD Booru which can be found here: https://mmda.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=1486
(And yes it's the Ladybug Model).
Now here's the problem. The model has a mother bone, it also have a groove bone, but I noted that there is no real attaching points to certain bones (Most notably the mother and groove bones. I mean I've looked at other models and have seen how they have been hooked up, and they work perfectly. But sometimes the model makers either get lazy or are in a rush to finish a model up (Sort of like a bulk run)
So this causes the models to really fail rather than work properly..
In some ways I wish ther ewas a way you could check out if all the bones were connected properly in PMXEditor, or that there was a way that if a bone was improperly attached to another bone, it would give us a warning that the model would not work properly and suggest how to ramify the issue.
And that's where we come to the issue that I made in my 13 Years later post.. The Lack of standardization..
There's no set pattern or rules here, and yes, each model maker has their own way, but if model A works an it' set up properly, and B doesn't work, then why is it that B Fails? That's the point I'm trying to understand here..
Anyway I would like to get ome feedback a to "Why Models fail sometimes to properly work. Is it a matter of balance, or is it an issue of no real "Sum Checking" to seem if the model will work properly..
Your thoughts on this? Le tthe discussion begin!
