Release 1.1 of 23-January-2006
Four open-source centaur figures based on geometry derived from the woman and horse models from Zygote Media. This package consists of four figures and two clothing props. Two of the figures (the "generic" female and male) are shown in the image. The other two figures are based on the centaur-like species described by the science fiction author John Varley in his "Gaean" trilogy.
This package is quite large -- over 13 MB, so it is available in two forms: "centaurs for broadband" (the whole thing in one ZIP file) and "centaurs for dial-up" (which splits the package into five ZIP files, the largest being just over 4 MB). The "dial-up" package is reccommended for those with a slow internet connection or for anyone who only wants one or two of the four figures, as four of the five pieces will consist of one complete figure each while the fifth (also the smallest at only 517 KB) will be the clothes.
Version 1.1 corrects some errors in the readme file and adjusts the placement of the wrist joint to improve hand poses. If you have already downloaded one or more of the version 1.0 figures, you need only download the update file (585 KB).
