[WIP] More Saddle Options 5c
"So I have been busy in RL and havent had a chance to post any more pictures of my up coming dino saddle mod, but I got a break today and am posting a few of the Raptor saddle options.

This is the "Hunter" saddle for my mod, it has a dead juvenile Megaloceros (it has horns just starting to grow and is thinner/smaller the a adult), dead Dodo and a dead Mesopithecus. I still need to add the ropes to hold everything on the saddle. I am overall pleased with how it came out.

I have made up a new bridle for the Raptors its more like the one on the boxart/coverart, it also had a real working metal bit now too the old one was leather and it went through the jaw instead of the mouth.... :\

One thing to note the black spots on the bridle is a built in shadow from the texture, I will be removing that when I do my texture pass next. I also plan on making the trap alittle more metal shiny like the stuff found on the dino saddles.

Check my artwork tab for more saddle WIP shots.

This is the last chance you all get to make comments or suggestions before my final release! Also remeber comments and thumbs up help me know if I am going in the right direction or not. :)"

I've seen a horse muzzle designed to keep horses from biting, but I've only seen one once. An old friend of the family had a horse that people could ride, just as sweet as can be, but loved biting people's hair.
But yeah, I guess I can see why a muzzle wouldn't work ingame as just a cosmetic.

Not sure about that, because in my modding experinace people will expect it to work and get upset when its just for cosmetic. Gonna admit never seen a horse muzzle that was for anything but grazeing restrictions lol.

Actually, I have a suggestion. Purely for aesthetics-sake, do you think you could design a muzzle of sorts for the raptor? Sort of like how certain horses have to have a muzzle to keep them from biting people. It could be interesting to see, and great for RP servers.

Yes actually! I have some ideas for the dinos from SE and some for the vanilla dinos too. But it will prolly be later on, so many ideas so little time lol. I but I really do love SE so really want to do some saddles for it.

Omg, I am absolutely in love with these! One question/suggestion though; any plans on making SE themed saddles? You have no idea how excited I am for the release of your mod! Keep up the amazing work! <3
