VMK fans on here?
I've had a lot of fun scripting with Alice an mentoring students, but haven't got into making our own models yet.

Are their any VMK (a game which is unfortunately ending tomorrow) fans on here? I was wondering if anyone has made/seen a model like a VMK character. Is it terribly complicated making a basic humanoid character then changing hair/clothing/etc.?

What is VMK?

Interesting that you should ask. I had never heard of it either. Then today, I was waiting in the dentist office. I picked up a Wall Street Journal and there was a big article on it.

But, I'll let the author of the original post explain what it is and how it is being shut down against the wishes of many thousands of fans.

VMK is/was Virtual Magic Kingdom
Virtual Magic Kingdom is a basic massively muliplayer online game (MMO) based in Disneland with virtual attractions. Since the game is going away and a lot of people will miss it, it would be interesting to create some basic characters with same funny looks for Alice storytelling, etc. I don't think I ready to help mentor students creating a lot of 3D models if I haven't done it before.

By the way, Disney unexpected reneged on several "promised" updates to the game but to their credit did give almost 2 months notice before they pulled it. The article you mentioned mentioned obsessed Disney fans... pretty accurate actually :) :eek:

PS: the keyword BestLester on youtube will show some of the game where we made mini music videos and the like.
