Title: Sweettooth & Sweetbot [PS3]
Post by DJ Normality on 04/21/18 at 15:19:27
Does anyone know of a way to find the geometry in the data file .psarc ? I know they have textures because I was able to extract using BMS. But what about the model ? I did some research and found that everyone was talking about the models being in the .ngp files. Well after looking closely at the resources i see that ngp is for the "Next Generation Portable" meaning this file is only for NGP devices. It must pick up this sector somehow or its somehow encoded to the game so it can work cross-platform. But that still dont solve my problem. I honestly feel like the .vram has something in it. File size is really big to just be several pictures. Any help on this topic would be appreciated.

vram...Video Ram?

It would honestly be easier to remake it your self. Just take some screen caps of the game for reference and bobs your aunty.

yeah vram. its some kind of video ram but it does have textures embedded and geometry. i wish i worked for sony or a company who specializes in coding because i just dont get it. even compressing files can be challenging i did start to remake my own version with the textures i got from the vram file. still messing around with the UV's its hard to know what goes where exactly but im just kinda making it my own and trying to keep it original as possible. the head i think is going to the the hardest part. as you can see i attempted it but im not liking how the UV's came out or the detail of it. but ill keep posting what i do and maybe someone reading this topic could shed some techniques or tips.

That model is pretty fucking cool because for some reason it reminds me of what Sweet Tooth would look like if Small Brawl got a reboot.

Thanks bro. It's actually from twisted metal 2012 for PS3. Yeah I'm going to attempt to reconfigure mesh so i can make him the robot. Also going to put some barbed wire around it and along top and still need all the interior but I appreciate that. I'll update as I progress with it.

Yeah I know, the wheels from Rocket League just gave me RC car vibes. Good luck on the rest of the project.

ha yeah thats actually where i got the concept but i honestly dont like them plus poly count is ridiculous will more than likely go back and redo that. that is a car i made for GTA tho got alot of hits on it.

OK everyone here's the final render of my version. The head took me forever and i felt like if i kept going id drive myself insane with the UV's so its not 100% perfect but it will work for any kind of rendering. I also included all the textures I used. The head was completely custom This was a really cool project but now that I have everything I wanted for the vehicle i can now make the sweetbot I wanted to have from the beginning. I'll post more pictures here once I start that project which is looking like next week. Just have a few things to finish up on the TMNT truck. Enjoy

Redoing the sweetbot. Heres what i was able to get done tonight. Pretty much the whole forearm. Still need to put the hydrolics and stuff on and maybe change hose texture but so far its not looking half bad. Decided to go with the black on purple for this bot. Just gives it that feel i think. More to come.
