Battle Born Series RuckSack Series

Unread post by athornforyourheart » Sat Apr 14, 2018 11:54 pm

I am creating a series of backpacks (among other projects) for the ongoing Battle Born Series.

Below are some examples of backpacks created so far. These models are near complete but not fully. Other minor details and assets will be added soon.

For my Drow and UD lovers - any thoughts on what you would like to see in this series? I am trying to take in mind what the environment down under would provide as far as a good ruck sack goes?

Open to suggestions on what you might like to see added to these packs.

I'd vote for things like two-handed swords on the back and then empty sheaths for two handed swords on the back, alongside shields carried on the back.

Aside from the fact that large weapons such as Zweihänders or halberds were simply carried on shoulder instead of any sheath (and there is suprisingly nice vanilla walking animation for that in case of swords or axes) I suppose its always nice to see more item look variety :P

Just an update to the backpacks. I’m currently gauging ideas and feedback on enhancing these packs before rolling them out. I really want these packs to shine so this will take some time. Please feel free to continue leading suggestions and feed back in the meantime. Thanks! :)

There is one plausible proposal I've seen. Rifle sling style "back carry", as in, sheath has a rifle sling and is carried over a single shoulder much like this image.

It's fairy easy to nudge the rifle off the shoulder and into one's arms for drawing. Still much slower than a proper belt-carry, but viable.

Looking good!

I'd love a kind of simple looking backpack unless you're already working on one. You know how many backpack seem to suggest a 'class'? Sometimes a character just wants a plain backpack!
