Ignis saves Noctis from brain drain

Noctis is about to be whacked in the head. Ignis notices and starts to take action! But he’s a little bit late…

But still Ignis manages to knock Mr. Roboto away just in time, and Noctis looks grateful. Either that or he’s saying “It’s about frakking time.” I’m not sure which.

…these are 4k-ish in size, comprised of four 1080’s. Saves posting space sometimes, is all.

Happy Halloween or something?

I know it’s early but since I haven’t been posting as often past couple months, not sure if I’d make it on time otherwise. Just a couple outfit mods with a Halloween-ish theme.

I still haven’t been in much of a FFXV or gaming mood and my physical health/stamina has been fairly weird past few months. Seeing Ignis with vampire fangs amuses me tho. heh.

Terra Wars Collaboration 1

I honestly can’t stand the color/filter palette they used for this extra mission. Certain moments are ok but overall it’s horrid at least with my PC/settings. 😛

I didn’t get very far, just to the point below, whereupon the game decided to CTD and in irritation I played something else instead. Terra Wars interests me not at all so I haven’t returned to it yet. But Noct. being jumped by the little white doll things was kinda cute.

Sidenote: I’ve been intently looking into the parts for a new dedicated “4k”/Win10 gaming PC, but I’m thinking about waiting for the new i9-9900k cpu (vs. i7-8700k). Seems like it’ll be only $150-$200 more so if benchmarks on it are good I may wait for it. Hoping to have something built by Xmas or New Year period. And then I should be able to play this game in 4k at … 40-60fps. HAHA. Who knows. But at least that should be with graphic settings up higher. $3000+ so I can play FFXV as best as one can. Ok ok, not only FXV…it’s just funny to say that.

Why I don’t post shirtless young Noctis

Someone asked elsewhere about pics of a shirtless young Noctis. I replied in the comment section but this is a longer explanation. Young Noctis is not officially available as a Comrades or Avatara face or hair option and no one has yet made any shirtless Noct. full-model or outfit mod, either.

Someone did very recently upload a Comrades face/hair option (they are two separate mods/pieces vs. a whole outfit/model), however as is often the case with non-official models, there are terrible shader/shadows/skintone issues, especially when combined with the shirtless Comrades mod.

It’s that whole neck to body seam issue. 😛
The “official” old-Noctis head doesn’t have this shader problem so it matches up with the shirtless torso mod somewhat better (most of the time, it can look terrible occasionally too). But even with ambient occlusion setting off and some different lighting situations, putting two mods together is still pretty apparent/ugly 90% of the time even from moderate distances. I have no desire to use it or spend much time trying to find the singular moment in the game where the combo might look okay for pics. Plus the hair is rather low-res for my tastes. I mean it works ok if you keep a shirt on Noct, but then what’s the point re: main game…

Perhaps someone else might create a combo of Comrades mods that works better, in the future, or maybe one day Square will actually improve their mod-tool re: this whole skintone/shader stuff.
