The Platinum Paladin

UPDATE: 05-29-2015
I'm trying a different approach with a new variant having an asymmetrical design. I decided to change the pauldron on the shield side so it is clearly separate and came up with this. Tell me what you think of it.

Platinum Paladin (https://www.dropbox.com/s/z06mkorxk9htyfw/Platinum%20Paladin.zip?dl=0) Original
Platinum Paladin Variant (https://www.dropbox.com/s/m03jcximmxremfx/Platinum%20Paladin%20Variant.zip?dl=0) Single Gem Pauldron

-Lore-

The Paladins of Trove are warriors and true believers of the Goddess of Light. They believe that the goddess is not dead and do justice in her name, hoping that one day she will rise once again and reclaim the realms.

Until then, the Platinum Paladins and those who follow them will venture into the shadows and slay all that dwell in the darkness, maintaining the light in all the realms.


-The Platinum Plate Armor-
Unlike the Elysian armor which represent the realm of light itself, this armor represents the brilliance and pureness of the goddess. It protects the wearer as well as emboldens those who band with the knight while intimidating those who stand against them. Anyone who proves their worth may acquire this brilliant set from the lead Platinum Paladin or may fulfill the quest of justice and light.

This set has a solid mantle. Left handed buckler. One large shield fixed on the back. A rainbow finish under the large plates of armor. And an optional helm to complete the set.


Note: the pauldrons are meant to be big.
Unless a dev says to shrink them down, they are staying the way they are.

I thought I would try my hand at making a costume for the Knight. This replaces the Level 10 Costume.

Its the first version since I'm still working on the helmet. I'd like to know what you all think so far. Sorry for the low quality images. Try it out and tell me what you think in game.

What kind of effects do you think would look best for attacking?

I won't lie. I really like it, I'm always for more Knight skins. But there are issues you should think about addressing.

The pauldrons are HUGE. You need to stay within the dimensions of the original model. I don't know if this is a true rule, but it's definitely looking that way at the moment. I understand that it could be difficult to manage that, but it's what has to be done. Unless of course a dev comes in here and says otherwise.

Well the pauldrons are meant to be huge and they are surprisingly well within the right dimensions. I just want to push the limits to get the most out of costumes. Though if a dev says they need to be adjusted I'll shrink them down.

Awesome mod! I'm a big fan of knight skin mods as well, and may I suggest using the trove topper or infinidome as base for the helm? A basic recolor would be enough already but I think you can add much more than that :D

Knight was my first class and I loved it and its still one of my favourites even though it isn't the most powerful, Love this costume and think it looks amazing GOOD LUCK! =)

There's a helmet now which you will have to load separately like testing a style with "/hatpreview platinumpaladinhelmet"

I drew it myself. The costume is based on his armor.

Thanks for spotting that! I added a new version (0.11) in the OP.

I'll be working on those soon after figuring out how they work and how to make my own. People have suggested silver in the swinging attacks.

Saw you mention this in-game, decided to check it out. I'm glad I did too, it looks awesome imo.. Better then all the other Knight costumes, my Brother loves it a lot too... It's the green... I'd support this being put into the game.

Is the helmet zip file not what is shown in the preview? I'll fix that.

Download the Zip file from here for now since I can't edit the primary post for some reason.

I agree it does seem a bit too futuristic but it does seem to match the armor as a whole. I'll work on more variants. Who knows, if this gets accepted maybe they'll let it have more than one helmet.


Oooh I like it, love that you're not adhering to the base knight ;D

Yeah, the knight is supposed to be intimidating and bold, am I right?

the shoulders are very big and different from the base model, not sure if the devs like that. other than that, nice design!!

03-08-2015, 09:21 AM
It's a pretty cool skin. And, like everyone else said, those pauldrons are indeed huge. The default Knight does have some pretty big pauldrons on its own though. I dig the helmet, since it reminds me of some sort of space engineer in the future, because of the visor.

I simplified the helmet. You can still download the older version if you want.

I also added a buckler strapped to the left hand!

All versions are still downloadable if you want to try, the latest being in the costume file itself. So tell me what you think between the versions?

I really like the huge pauldrons, I would keep them, unless they go out of the requirements of in game costumes.

Eloc Freidon
03-16-2015, 09:14 AM
They were designed within the dimensions the default knight has. All I know is that as long as they don't obviously clip through weapons, mounts or itself then its alright.

I'll stick with the pauldrons unless I manage to make a more compact version that looks better than the full size or the devs ask for them to be shrunk down.

The one on the right is the best one out of the 3. The middle is in last and the left is in second.

Eloc Freidon
03-16-2015, 09:22 AM
Yeah the middle one was definitely lacking. The left one I'll likely use for a different costume.

Kind of a bump, but I want to know what you all think I should go for in the Ultimate's effect. Since I hear that the ult will effect other players I'll change it from the boring box into a shield shape when I figure out Popcorn FX.

Any ideas or concepts you all can think of I'll later doodle them out. Then we'll pick one that I'll flesh out in the program.

Thanks for the compliments.

I added lore and have decided to retouch the costume a bit for more color variation and maybe change the weapon into a morning star.

I'll hold off figuring out VFX since the devs don't want knight costumes now and when they do again they might have changed the Knight's Ult to work on other players by then. That is when I'll work on the VFX to take advantage of that ability.

Two versions! See which shield position you prefer!

Platinum Paladin Rotated Shield (https://www.dropbox.com/s/z06mkorxk9htyfw/Platinum%20Paladin.zip?dl=0) Matched arm position (far right)
Upright Shield Version (https://www.dropbox.com/s/m48m8lix30yh1op/Platinum%20Paladin%20Upright.zip?dl=0) (older left and middle)

I updated it a bit more making the smaller shield into a full sized duplicate of the one on the back. Play around with it some and capture some animated GIFs of it in motion. See if you think I should keep the shield upright or rotate it.

Thanks for your support and suggestions so far!

Okay, let me say that this is a fantastic mod, and makes me want to use knight. Such a complex skin for the knight seems out of place, seeing as knight is a fairly simple class, but you made it work. I like it. One little thing though. The helmet still doesnt look much like a paladin helmet. If i can get some images to show, i have some things i would like to request as a helm design. Also, could you make a silver and gold battle axe for this guy? Just a little prefrence.

Thanks!

I'm going to give this costume ONE more update before I say its finalized. For now, I need to remember how the heck modding works. I'll try to make it look like it has more outlines and details but try to not look like the Scion costume from Revenant, which looks oddly like how I was trying to make this costume.
