Strange mutant skin in SOC files

Postby Hangman on 21 Sep 2010 23:02

You want strange? here we are. this turned up while I was going through the skins for SoC, and I'm about as sure as to what it is as I am the psuedogiant, human, but not much past that.
taken from the skin, it's name is "karlik". I don't speak much russian at all, so I don't know what it means.

it's halfsized to fit on the forum, but the fulll, original can be found here

Yes it's interesting. Looks like a corpse skin type, but I could be wrong, just guessing; needs more checking up. It's PNG file...also. Could be a work in progress.

PNG? sorry man, I saved it as that when I found it in paint.net as a .DDS.
The emblem on the overalls(?) intrigues me, perhaps it's a test subject of some faction like "the group"?
He's not a corpse so far as I know, all the dead bodies are in their own texture folder, this ugly SOB was alongside mutants and stalkers... It's skin format doesn't fit the zombie either, so I'm stumped.

Yes, then, if the original is DDS file, then it's rather a finished product; at least to some degree that the author was happy enough to post it. And, on link that you provided, there's an entry referring to a "Astral Shape Shifter." Might've been intended for a new mutant, maybe; but overall, not a bad work at all.

That's my wikia username, I uploaded the image to show the community what I'd found, hehe.
What does "Karlik" mean, anywho? It might give us a hint as to what it is.

It's either the old cut out NPP Zombie, or the Dark Stalker Doctor that was cut if I recall, I believe it's the former rather than the latter. But what do I know. XD

LOL, :D :D

No idea about what Karlik means, if I were offered a guess, I'd say that it might be the name of the intended creature. Just guessing.

Yeah, both possibilities (zombie, and the Dark Doctor -interesting point- ) seem quite probable :mozilla_smile:

The zombie skins are in an entirely different format, so that's not too likely, unless the model changed along with the skin.
This dark doctor thing intrigues me, what was it exactly? I've never heard of it.

I was looking at the zombie picture(also cut) in the looting window, and it seems to be the skin I found, little eye pattern on chest and all, this zombie has a different appearance and even a different stance(round shouldered and bulkier, unlike the square shouldered and emaciated flesh-eaters we love to re-add in mods). So I'm inclined to agree with ket, but it's more than an old skin, it's an old skin of an even old model.

btw, Karlik in Russian means "Dwarf".

Its a different skin for a burer/dwarf.
It was the first burer or a additional one without a coat.
Look at this pic, heres the dwarf without a coat

:salute: Righto, nice find there! It seems there are a heap of cut creatures in there! what the hell are the things between the Poltergeist and the Izlom? it looks like they took that thing, gave it a bandit coat, and called it a Burer.

Just looking back at it, what in the zone is overhead of the stalker and the dwarf? Jesus it's ugly.

(Also, old Sidorovitch in the center?)
