If Date Ariane were redone with the new model, this is what it would look like.

As I have mentioned numerous times before, the “sequel” to Date Ariane, known as Something’s In The Air features an updated model of Ariane, that took quite a bit of work to get right.  Redoing over 1000 pictures from Date Ariane is out of the question for the foreseeable future (but I’m not saying never).  But if I ever got around to it, this is what it would look like.  The old hairstyle was not designed to work with V4 models, so I found something close.

I now have a decent sized wardrobe I could use, but the reason I am doing these pictures is because there is a “flashback” scene in the sequel where I used around 20 old pics.  The problem is that the old model and new model are too different and the flashback is a little disconcerting.  But if I make it too different from the original, that would be too disconcerting for those who are very familiar with the old model.  So I found V4 wardrobe that is a close approximation to the wardrobe used in Date Ariane to recreate the scenes I am flashing back to.  It is not perfect, the black dress in the original is strapless.  But it is a good stand in and it looks great.  The restaurant in the sequel has a different decor than the first game (they now use table cloths!), the pic at the top is sort of a hybrid of the two decors.

“Replacing” the old V3 model with the new V4 model is sometimes as easy as a few clicks, but the pose that the V3 was using will get messed up every time.  Many pictures it is not important, I can just load another pose that is comparable, but many others where Ariane is interacting with other objects, that gets messy.

Sometimes it is not just a new model.  There is new technology.  I posted once about my work around for water issues, but I have found others that have solved it.  Water can now be manipulated, and renders can both refract underwater items, and reflect above water items.  Water turbulence is also controllable.

Ok, I have shown you new Ariane in a red shirt, in a black dress, in a blue bikini.  What’s left?  Oh yeah…

    You could also throw into the story that she went to the salon as part of the upcoming second date.

    I discovered that using a bump-map on the water-surface fets that little extra detail that makes it look way better.

    Hi Ariane! Sorry if the question is repetitive, but I’m a fan of his work and would like to know how you will deliver the second game, and if we can contribute in some way (perhaps sponsored), after all this wonderful work you do!

      I still don’t know for sure. I’m about two thirds done with the first draft. It will probably come in at around 200 MB when its done. The easiest mode of distribution would probably be “donationware”, where I put a small donate button on the front page of the game. Then I could post it on a few different download sites and set up a torrent, and not care about piracy. and what not.

        Good Idea! So everyone is happy! I do not see the time you finish this masterpiece! rs

        I’m a fan of donationware. In this case, I’d be a supporter for sure.

    Hey I love the scenes where there’s public nudity, just curious if there’s gonna be any more of that?
