Fun with sizes

Post by Diilicious » Wed Jul 12, 2017 5:10 pm

So i made a thread wondering how tall the model of the human was in the game and it turns out its 1.85m tall. based on that I was able to make a funny screenshot in the editor of how tall a few example people would really be if they were scaled correctly. :D

Great pic!

I often thought about the same. Could be fun if it were actually possible to scale the avatars. So thanks for showing!

exactly 4'0 (if assume he has no hair)

[EDIT]
shanna (in the above pic) is about 5-8cm shorter than 5'0 in this image, but from what i know i can only scale the models in 10% increments, so thats why the gap between her and the hin, and her and duncan looks a little off, incase people were wondering.

shes closer to her actual height being shorter than it, than taller than it.

Keep in mind that NWN did the elf sizes wrong. Elves in FR are roughly the same hight as humans, with exception to drow, who go by base DnD hieghts

it would be so cool if if/when we get haks, if they could give the option of changing your character height between a set range on char creation

4'0" is really tall for hin
Halfling males range from 2'10" - 3'4"
Halfling females are 2 inches shorter

This can be done with a dialogue in the entry area. I don't even think it needs haks. You scale character sizes by assigning a certain character model and tail, and a script could do that.
Some builds I've worked on (not recommended):
Charisma Battlecleric
"E-Dodge Brycer"

without haks though from what i understand, you can only have a preset character model whos appearance can not be changed.

so even if you wear armour, or a helmet, etc.. it wont show these things.

Yes - scaling doesn't work for dynamic models in the base game. So for monster races we could scale size (something I almost did a while back) but for anything that shows clothing changes it wouldn't work.

Haks could change that, if anyone has built scaling dynamic models.

Agreeing with what Crag said, halflings are around three feet tall, give or take a few inches.

Also scaling models exists with haks. Even scaling individual parts. Doesn't need multiple models or anything.

I think they are aiming for making the Gnomes significantly different from "small humans" therefore they made them so that they would not be scaled "correctly" in human standards.
