<p>Hey all,</p><p>These got accepted and should be coming to Everquest 1 soon. Sadly EQ2 does not support weapons (yet) so these can only be obtained for EQ1.</p><p>Feedback appreciated, and if enough people like them i will do my best to make more upon request!</p><p><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86490068/Everquest2/EQ_2HS.jpg" /></p><p><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86490068/Everquest2/EQ_1HS.jpg" /></p><p><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86490068/Everquest2/EQ_axe.jpg" /></p><p><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86490068/Everquest2/EQ_bow.jpg" /></p><p><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86490068/Everquest2/EQ_shield.jpg" /></p><p><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86490068/Everquest2/EQ_1hb.jpg" /></p><p><img src="https://dl.dropbox.com/u/86490068/Everquest2/EQ_2HB.jpg" /></p>

<p>Glad you were able to get the poly count to the point they would accept the items, they look great as always!</p>

<p>Those look awesome.  Weapons will be allowed in EQ2 really soon.  We are finalizing up the new web layout.  You make these for EQ2 I will almost definately pass them through.</p><p>Dave B.</p>

<p>Woot! I'm glad these got approved and can't wait to see them in EQ2. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Is there an ETA to these going live in EQ? Please =)</p>

<p>Very dramatic. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>A note regarding EQ2 weapons: I don't believe we will be able to do bows, at least initially. Please keep that in mind.</p><p>Shields will be treated as a separate category and arrive the same day as weapons.</p>

<p>that stuff looks sick dude. well done.</p><p>someone bring fortune and glory to eq2 in the form of a katana so my bruiser can duel weild after 8 years!</p><p>the original Rebellion from eq1 give this a <img src="/station/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>Some of these items exceed 500 triangles. Most hover around 600 triangles. Im having concerns about spending the time to polish these up and add a few more edge loops to smooth out things such as the axe blade and create a fresnel map as well. only to have the item be declined.</p><p>The items are very optimized, but they all share 1 texture (minus shield) so it was a huge challenge getting them all done using this method. If i were to delete some edge loops, it would cause uv artifacts.</p><p>Can a dev tell me if I were to delete edge loops and polygons to reach the 500 triangle LOD limit, would having these uv texture artifacts and/or missing polygons be a deal breaker for getting accepted. From a distance i dont think players will notice, but it will be impossible for me to reach below a 500 triangle count without creating texture artifacts.</p>

<p>How did you get them accepted at over 500 polys when we are supposed to be at 400 or lower?</p>
