I am looking for someone to create a weapon to appear in the playerstudio's for EQ2. The weapon I am requesting to be made is a smallsword. Here is a link to what I am talking about for visual aid. http://www.armor.com/view.html?rapier069a.jpg

Very elegant.  I'll bet that would look good on my character.

I was holding off on making a rapier for EQ because there is a really nice one for the bard only weapon from Tacvi, but EQ2 I might have to make one.....

Here is a prototype rapier I made from your picture in about 30 mins. I am not happy with it, but it should get the point (get it?) across.

The prototype is 394 Tris and almost all of them are on the handle/hilt so there is not really much room for improvment besides lining up some polys to get a more rounded look. I can get the hand guard a little more round and the grip texture better.  Would that be enough for you? Is there any design work you would like to see in the texture? Runes? Emblems? Or is just plain rapier what you want?

Nice start, if you get a chance take a look when your in game at epee when your at the broker, the hilt is exactly the same as what the smallsword is.

I only have a lvl 11 necro in EQ2. I am an EQ player so not sure what you are talking about. Just a note: When modeling it's the really cury parts that use up a lot of polys.The blade I made is about 10 polys and the hilt is 480+....

I will try and get one done by the weekend......

Redid it this afternoon. I am not completely done yet as I would like some feedback. I can make it all silver if you prefer.

392 TRIs

What I meant was when your in game if you go to a market broker and do a search to buy epee, when you preview the item, you'll see the hilt is exactly the same as the smallsword your making so you can see what it looks like. While I have your attention would you be up to making a cup hilt rapier as well?

For a cup hilt I would have to make a more plain handle.

This is 144 Tris by itself. http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/...on/HiltOnly.jpg A decent looking hilt bar is another 92.

An Epee like this?

In all honesty the hilt of a rapier is 99% of the weapon. I do not really want to make a duplicate of what is in game already.

Yeah i'm ok with a plain handle, I'd rather have a cup hilt then the smallsword anyways, I'll link you to a picture of one: http://www.armor.com/view.html?rapier127a.jpg & http://www.armor.com/view.html?rapier127b.jpg
