A New Project, but Will Need Help…

Haven’t done anything in a while, but i think i know what i want to do next, but i KNOW i will need help.

I’ve recently gotten into the Metroid series. in fact, i just bought metroid prime trilogy off ebay. The one character that has been in my mind for a project is Dark Samus.
I don’t want to make just a psa for it, but i want to make it as if it were a model replacement. new animations, new psa, etc. I want a completely new character here. maybe a few attacks like samus, but a different character for the most part.
since i suck at animating, i will need some help with that for sure. i will also need ideas for the psa. here are the specials i came up with.

B-Phazon Beam (Fires a beam of phazon. will prolly replace charge cannon or missles with aura graphic)
>B- Phazon Spike (puts its hand out as if to say stop, but releases 3 spikes of phazon, each bigger then the last)
vB- Phazon Blast (Charges up power, and draws opponents in at the same time. has weak electric hitboxes around it that keep enemies sucked in. then it releases a strong blast of phazon)
^B- Need ideas…

i was thinking dark samus could have a lighter weight than samus, having weaker attacks, but also having better killing moves.
so, is anyone willing to help me with this project? i will even try a dark samus vertex hack, but i just want someone to help.

    Whoa. Now that would be something I’d like to see! But… I am no good at animating. I wish you luck!

    You should talk to Razanak7. A Dark Samus PSA was on his to-do list, so maybe you could do a collab on it?

    get with raz
    he has custom animations for DS already!
    check this out: http://www.youtube.com/user/razanak7?blend=1&ob=4#p/search/4/tN-7JiUiA3U
    maybe you can ask him to help you out 😉

    finnaly i’ve only ever seen one other dark samus psa and it waas done with codes not a file patch -.- i actually had an idea for a dark samus/metroid fusion psa.

    b an aura like shot, about the same damage as samuses normal but seeks out a target like a missile. the longer u charge the more shots r fired.

    ^b (grounded)draws opponets in side and spits them straight up. used in air spikes opponets strait down.

    >b (normal missile) ice missiles. (super missiles) become the difussion missiles from metroid fusion.

    vb (grounded) boost ball like hyper sonics spin dash, rolls quikly along the floor damaging opponets. used in air turns into morph ball in air and slams down diagonally into the ground with an explosion of phazon.

    ^a (grounded)seeker missiles. graphics r the same as samus’s normal ^a but she now shoots 5 normal missiles with her attack, (no ice effect) the airial attack is the same maybe with a mild stun.

    >a (grounded) similar to ur >b. used in air is the same as the seeker missiles.

    va (grounded) shoots up to spikes of phazon to either side of her. has reflecting properties. in air same as the original.

    i also had a dars zss to go with it i’ll have to find it.

    Zigheart, your ideas are really fucking weird to say the least. You have special attacks that are mapped as tilts, and they’re mostly insanely overpowered. What the fuck?

    I hope you also bought Super Metroid on the SNES :l, it’s really fun.

  7. 7 TheRandomGuy 04/22/2010 at 7:56 PM

    ^B hmm how about just letting her fly like lucario or that bomb drop shinespark screwatack kinda thing she did in metroid prime 2 the first 2 battles ( kinda like fox’s upb charge and on attack maybe a little bit homing like sonic’s neutral b)

    first things first however dont let this dark samus project die!!! (like the rest of those i read here that started like this -_-‘)

    Well at the very least good luck with samus in PSA, that is a scary thought, stupid file size

  9. 9 dingoberriz 04/22/2010 at 8:31 PM

    ^What he said. Hope you don’t have to cut much out of Zero Suit for this.

    You’re starting ANOTHER project? You should finish the other projects you’ve started before you take on another =p

  11. 11 JediKnightTemplar 04/22/2010 at 9:21 PM

    I didn’t even know that editing Samus’s B attacks was possible. Last I checked there was something in PSA or FitSamus.pac that prevented them from being loaded.

  12. 12 razanak7 04/22/2010 at 9:45 PM

    Yeah, DS is on my to-do list, but it’s not very near the top. Although I have a pretty complete list of possible moves.

  13. 13 Meh 04/22/2010 at 10:23 PM

    I came here just to mention that razanak7 has a wait animation/changed model (I remember seeing it in a video a long time ago. The video with the ROB computer, maybe?). Maybe you can team up with razanak7 to help with his Shadow and then you guys can work on Dark Samus afterward? It would speed up both projects, but I guess you could just get the stuff from him and work independently as well.

    the atacks were actually 2 idea put into one and they were taken straight from the games lol i figured it would be broken. i thought it would be fun to use tho.

  15. 15 zigheart 04/23/2010 at 2:11 AM

    srri for the 2x post but can anyone tell me what i need for making psa?

  16. 16 Plasmakirby 04/23/2010 at 8:05 AM


    so, you think you could do animating, and i could do most of the psa? i’d also like a list of the possible moves you have. oh, and i’ve seen the wait animations, and a few others from your youtube. they would go perfectly.


    rly, the only other thing i’m working on is rotom. i want 2 different projects because i’ll eventually lose interest, while being interested in something else, but will go back to the first interest. this way, i’ll mostly always be working on something

  17. 17 darkshadedx 04/23/2010 at 3:34 PM

    @plasmakirby: what happened to project silver?

  18. 18 Plasmakirby 04/23/2010 at 5:58 PM

    well, we don’t have an animator who will help, so i’ve given up on it for noa

  19. 19 darkshadedx 04/23/2010 at 6:05 PM

    @plasmakirby: ohhhhhh I was really looking forward to it..

  20. 20 Roo525 04/23/2010 at 6:16 PM

    I’d think Dark Samus would be heavier than samus… Although, they are EXACTLY the same person due to being a clone of eachother.

  21. 21 bakura 04/23/2010 at 10:04 PM

    good lock man have fun hacking

  22. 22 ZeroBlade77 04/25/2010 at 8:37 PM

    Ahem, ^B could be, as I stated in Brawl Vault, it could be Gravity Booster-like, except out of water. Like a jet out of her back, I dont know if SSBB Samus has that attachment, but if not theres always the boots. And by that I mean fire coming out of her boots as if she had a boot rocket.

    Plus, I think the clone in Metroid Fusion may be connected or the same as Dark Samus, but her motives for
    Helping her defeat the final boss are unknown. So far. DUHN DUHN DUHHHHHN. And I would be happy to help…if my vertex and BrawlBox n’ PSA weren’t so fked up right now.

    How about bringing in Phazon and then charging upwards like fire fox Or mabye the thing she does a bunch where she rises upwards and releses a cloud of Phazon
    And for a final smash there is her supremely awesome phazon flash attack from metroid prime 3
