First - let me preface this by saying I know NOTHING - ZILCH - NADA about writing add ons, so I apologize if what I'm requesting/suggesting is either A- Impossible or B- too difficult to make it worth it.
There are a few 3D animated mods available, ZMC and ADAPT probably being the 2 most common. ADAPT is limiting in that it only replaces the default portraits and is dependent upon your unit frames. Zuxana Model Citizen works independent from your Unit Frames and provides nice customization (you can scale to portrait or full figure) and when combined with ZMD you can save your model settings - but only on a model-by-model basis - thus you literally have to adjust things for just about every mob and boss in the game (tedious to say the least).
My suggestion is thus - I would love to see an ACE2 based 3D model add on that could be used independently with ANY unit frame mod. The basic options I'd love to see are:
--A config screen (or FuBar plugin!) to setup the addon
--Player, Target, and Party models with ability to show, hide, and hide in Raid
--Change the Width & Height of the model box
--Toggle "full" or "portrait" views - full 3d figure or just 3d portrait view
--Ability to drag and drop the model boxes
--A "lock" feature to keep the model boxes in the spot/place you left them
--A feature that shows the model box outline when unlocked so that it can be aligned with whatever other elements easily
Basically - this would be like a combo of ADAPT and ZMC, but ACE'd with a very easy to use config screen with only basic options. If someone is interested in working on something like this, I'd love to help in any way I can. Also - if anyone else is interested in something like this, please /sign or /bump this post!
ModelMagic seems to have everything I could want, but it's no longer being developed and the one hacked version i found was bugtastic. If someone is interested in developing this kind of mod, this might be a good mod to start with.
Oh, how I wish I knew how to create add ons, but I'm a moron when it comes to coding.
Yes - I use AGUF, but the portraits can't be moved/resized independantly. I actually posted to the bugs/suggestions google site with that as a suggestion as well. I'm going to check out Rumil's 3D, but from the site it doesn't look as if they can be resized - just moved around. Maybe I can contact the author to see how to resize them within the code. Either way, though, I think an ACE version of a 3D model/portrait mod would be suh-weet.
