A little Bad Astronomy

I'm guilty of not posting anything for a lack of anything interesting to post. I'm pretty sure visitors to Permian Playground are not interested in my muddling through Nifscope, Blender and rigging 3d models for animation. Lots of mundane stuff. However, I guess if I don't post something, you might think I've gone Duke Nukem Forever.

So, just for fun I added in someone you may or may not have heard of--Dr. Phil Plait: Author, Skeptic, Astronomer, Sci-Fi fan and now a 3d version of himself wandering around teaching science to those wandering the wastes of the Fallout game universe :)

If you're curious, check out his Bad Astronomy blog at Discovery Magazine.

Morrow Clothing Development

I've been taking a break from populating the island with features, trees etc to go work on designing the clothing the Morrow Project characters that the player will encounter. This one is my first variation for a Recon Team member. I'm working on the beret, I'm no expert at Blender, so the hat's becoming an interesting challenge.

The weapon is an M16 created by Einherjrar. He's got some great US military weapon designs available for download at the Fallout 3 Nexus. Morrow Team members won't be using the M16 series of weapons (someone else on the island will...), I'm currently working on creating their more traditonal set of Stoner weapon systems.
