Minish Cap, sh** just got real!

Err, not quite. No super-advanced model importing from other games, only my first vertice hack with an acceptable result: Vaati.

The original texture for him was made by Chicken Chaser, I only did a few minor edits such as the eye shape to it.

So, I made his hair longer, made it cover his right eye, and changed the form of his sword, to make it look less like the Master Sword. The only part which still doesn’t quite satisfy me are the hair, but it already looked worse in earlier versions, and was the best result I could achieve. So there.


Oh and

…or at last something close to one. Whatever.

    My two favorite games are meeting.

  11. 11 Chicken Chaser 02/27/2010 at 6:10 PM

    That Vaati texture is incredible, I’m sure whoever made it must be an intelligent, handsome, charismatic, witty, charming, polite, respectable, intellectual and fragrant individual.

  12. 12 razanak7 02/27/2010 at 6:13 PM


    Also, sword = WANT.

  13. 13 calamitasx 02/27/2010 at 6:18 PM

    @Chicken Chaser:
    Yeah, but I guess he is nowhere near as great as the guy who gave the texture the final touch.

    If it means so much to you, I can as well make download links for just the .pac or .pcs file. Whatever you prefer.
    And, err, which sword do you mean? Link’s katana, or Vaati’s sword?

  14. 14 hallowvortex 02/27/2010 at 6:18 PM

    lol @ chicken chaser.

    This is awesome, but is it possible for you to make his hair look less, glitchy?

  15. 15 calamitasx 02/27/2010 at 6:21 PM

    Yeah, I can try that, but it really won’t be that easy.

    I hate to say something unrelated to the post, But you are one of the admins on Brawlsnapshots right?

  17. 17 Garrett223 02/27/2010 at 10:44 PM

    Swwet jesus this song is epic: But also nice vertex hack.

    @grindystump: He’s a snapshot mod. He puts stuff on the front page. He’s not a forum mod.
    Yay good job. Now post that Zelda too. You know what I’m talking about Calamitas. ;D

    Yay good job. Now post that Zelda texture. You know what I’m talking about, Calamitas. ;D

  20. 20 BigSharkZ 02/27/2010 at 11:43 PM


    Way off-topic, and that had to be the worst freaking song I have ever heard in my life. It made my ears bleed cow shit.

  21. 21 roo525 02/27/2010 at 11:49 PM


    Well that seems kinda rash doesn’t it?

    *Watches video*

    Please return to BigSharkZ’s comment…

  22. 22 BigSharkZ 02/28/2010 at 12:08 AM


    Now you understand, and I’m not in a good mood anyway. I don’t mean to offend him, but the song was actually crap.

  23. 23 Nuke 02/28/2010 at 2:26 AM

    @fat kirby
    Hell no.

  24. 24 jioplip 02/28/2010 at 3:52 AM


    THIS is an epic song:

    Sweet texture! Vaati deserves too be the main villain in the next Wii Zelda, and in his humanoid form. I hate that Nintendo has been playing him off continually as the ‘monster’ steriotype, when he could be the most badass villain EVER!

    Aaanyway, nice katana, a little rough looking but, seeing as you made it out the Master Sword…yeah.

  25. 25 Anh-T. 02/28/2010 at 10:05 AM

    Rather cool.

  26. 26 SouledgeLink 02/28/2010 at 1:17 PM

    Katana hack plus friendly nature of hack teams with one another equals faster deadpool? I mean that would be kickass for a three part collaberation instead of just two hack teams, right?

  27. 27 razanak7 02/28/2010 at 1:38 PM


    Yes, that would be very nice. 🙂

    And I do mean the katana. It would work PERFECTLY with a character I plan to make.

  28. 28 Calamitas 02/28/2010 at 2:58 PM

    OK, here is the .pac file for Vaati:

    And as for the hacked Link model with the katana, that would be this one.

    It goes with a rather mediocre texture that is supposed to represent me. I was just to lazy to extract the model. Oh, and he has somewhat longer hair, but I can as well make a version with the original hair length, if you want it like that.

    (Oh, and when talking about me in the future, please let out the “x”. I only added it because the version without it was already taken.)

  29. 29 The Right Honorable Judge Wallace P. Grindstump 02/28/2010 at 5:35 PM


    Can you help me? I can’t log into my Brawl Snapshots account and the reset password link I got isn’t working.

  30. 30 Calamitas 02/28/2010 at 5:51 PM

    Sorry, but I can’t. This isn’t really the sort of stuff snapshot mods take care of, sorry.

  31. 31 Colaya 02/28/2010 at 6:00 PM

    To be honest… I like the Vaati texture hack that DWorld made A LOT better… D:

    Still kinda cool vertex hack, though…

  32. 32 razanak7 03/01/2010 at 9:30 AM


    Sweet, this is perfect! And the longer hair works too.

  33. 33 Inferneon 03/01/2010 at 9:49 AM

    Katana ?

    Maybe you can make a Ninja Link ! 😀

  34. 34 calamitasx 03/01/2010 at 3:07 PM

    No problem. Oh, and if you have some other ideas for vertice hacks, feel free to tell me, I have kinda nothing to do at the moment.

  35. 35 Zurashii 03/01/2010 at 8:25 PM

    Someone should vertex hack the bird onto Toon Link’s hat.

  36. 36 razanak7 03/04/2010 at 9:57 PM


    o rly? I have a few… but they all would require some pretty extensive editing. But, if you’re up to that, then I’m sure we could work something out.

  37. 37 Calamitas 03/05/2010 at 1:44 PM

    ^Well, I am still not that good, but I am improving. At last I think so. I could at last give your ideas a try, and see what I can do.

  38. 38 razanak7 03/05/2010 at 5:00 PM


    It’s not really that it’s complicated, there’s just a good number of things I want changed.

    Do you have MSN? It would be easier to discuss there.

  39. 39 calamitasx 03/05/2010 at 7:30 PM

    Yes, I do.

    Just look for

  40. 40 The Right Honorable Judge Wallace P. Grindstump 03/05/2010 at 7:38 PM


    I apologize for asking about Brawlsnapshots again, But is It possible for me to upload a snapshots anonymously and then you transfer the snapshot I uploaded over to my account?

  41. 41 Rialdospaldacht 03/05/2010 at 9:12 PM

    You should hack his shield permanently onto his back and into a cape.

    Problem is it’d always be stiff…

  42. 42 Calamitas 03/06/2010 at 8:22 AM

    Not to my knowledge.

    I don’t think that will work.
