Ziggy's Dumpster

Post by Ziggy72 »

Hi everybody. It used to be easy to share Muvizu assets back in the day but, with the demise of Digimania and the continued wonkiness of the Muvizu.com website under Meshmellow, we have to rely on other means. I am going to make a website for all my stuff eventually, but in the meantime here are all the links to all my Muvizu content (that is currently on my OneDrive account) dumped into one place. Some are mine, some are not - please take note (for the sake of credits or what have you). I will add other bits to the Dumpster over time. The images open up bigger images, the 1drv.ms links are the actual files (zipped).

If any of the models have trouble with textures, you have to either copy the textures into the same folder as the model file and load the file again, or manually assign the correct texture in Muvizu once the object is loaded.



BJ Ninja - AK47


A textured Sketchup model (originally made by BJ Ninja) made to work with a standard Muvizu character by myself. It is a low collision ASE model and works double or single sided, which is important when attaching models to characters.


Dylly - Bed Topper


Neat prop by Dylly that you put on top of a standard bed prop to make it look like the character is under the covers. In ASE format with textures.


Ziggy72 - Binocs


Standard Binoculars scaled to fit Muvizu characters (as attachment). In FBX format with textures - please read the notes before use.


Ziggy72 - Hands Holding Mobile Phone


3 models to pose or edit - an open left hand, a pointing right hand, and a mobile phone. All made with easy to change textures (check the Source folder) and available in FBX and OBJ formats.


Ziggy72 - Teddy Bear


Just a quick prop I made based on a sketchup model shape. FBX format with textures.


Teddy Bear Burned

A variant of Teddy but with fire damage.


Ziggy72 - Bike Helmet for Muvizu


A bike helmet I made for someone. Comes in a normal and 'small' size to fit Beefy, since he has biker style clothes. In FBX format with textures, with and without visor. If Muvizu can't see the textures, move them into the same folder as the FBX file and try again.


Ziggy72 - Handcuffs

Pair : https://1drv.ms/u/s!ALlUfF5OI9dJgVc
Single : https://1drv.ms/u/s!ALlUfF5OI9dJgVg

Old looking handcuffs intended to be attached to the character's tail attachment point or wrist, whichever is easier, when in the Law > Handcuffed Loop action. Tough to align, but they look good. You can get the 'clean' texture here : http://anizu.uk/?page=viewasset&assetid=27


Ziggy72 - Hands for Man


A test set of FBX hand models in common poses (some are also in OBJ format, for some reason). All are based on the standard Muvizu Man character and scaled appropriately. They are textured a standard colour which you then alter (in Photoshop or whatever) to match your character's costume and skin colour. Base textures and UV maps (PSDs) are supplied in the Source folders.


Ziggy72 - Terrain Block 01


A quick way to lay an uneven, natural looking ground layer by copy/pasting this FBX section (which is scaled as big as you can go in Muvizu). Please note that each block is low collision, so characters can't stand on them. The way I used them was to cover most of it, especially the seams, with ferns, trees and grass, then made walkways with non visible ground planes to create something for the characters to interact with.


Ziggy72 - Glass Panes


Easy to use, low collision panes of glass in ASE format. See the 'usage' image for the notes.


Digimania - Filling Station


A set of Filling Station props in ASE format - Billboard, Diner, Forecourt, Gas Pump and Sign. The Billboard has issues, as in not being able to select it, so don't try to use that. You have to manually assign the TGA to the texture slots for the Diner and Gas Pump, and even then they are shaded but not fully textured. You can colour the TGAs yourself of course, but it looks like Digimania never got round to actually finishing this set.


Digimania - Industrial


A set of rather cool grimy Industrial themed props. Includes a Conveyor Belt, Metal Stairs, Pipes, etc. All in ASE format, and these do all work 100% :)



Digimania - Extracted Costumes


These are the raw TGA files for the standard Costumes for Man, Woman, Boy, Dog, Fat Man/Woman and Girl extracted from Muvizu (using Umodel) so that we can edit the clothes. The icons (used in Muvizu to show them) are also included so you can identify them easier. Note that originally the Man and Woman characters were called Blob and Blobette, so they are still called that internally. I think the actual Blob is called Beastie internally.


Ziggy72 - Body UV Templates


My own version of most of the UV templates for the base characters made into PSDs for my own convenience. There are handy layers for things like the belly button, toenails, fingernails, etc. There are also Brow layers that you can use to create custom skins to allow you to animate the character's face better (see the "UV Maps with Brows" download for instructions on how you do that).


Ziggy72 - UV Maps with Brows


UVs I made to animate the brows of characters by switching skin layers. See notes.

72 Sets Archive


I made a back up of sets I liked as Muvizu developed, and it's a shame that it's so hard to find them. So, I put them all into one archive (along with a lot of my own) for others to enjoy. The file is 1.27Gb, so might take a while to download.

The archive is split into 7 sections, and they include :

War Room by DannyNW23.

If anyone, who's name is mentioned here, does not want their sets posted in this way then please let me know and I will remove them from the archive.

Tip - before loading a large or complex set, turn OFF the lighting and close any camera windows to help it load faster.

Please remember that these sets go way back, and the lighting was very different back then and you will have to tweak things. Also, some of the sets are very large and complex - check the file size of the .set file before you load it. Sets over 25mb tend to need a gaming PC. For example Muvopolis, a city set I made, is 46mb and will give your system a good workout :) Nice set actually, be good to see it get used. The idea is that it's a basic city layout/backdrop/set all in one depending on how you want to shoot it, and from where. You can just replace/add in buildings, or resize things, to get the look you want. As long as your PC can take it.

(And yes, there is a girl apparently contemplating suicide from the top of one of the buildings in the Muvopolis set - it was a setup for a shot from the last movie I made with it and I forgot to remove her before uploading. Don't be alarmed - she got help).
