Maya copy paste skin weights

So for those who didn`t know about this shortcut - there is very useful function for Copy Pasting skinCluster weights. It needs one vertex selection to read skin weights, then press Ctrl + Alt + c.
Then select other vertices (ideally on the same mesh, but it can be other mesh, just make sure you have the same influence on it) and press Ctrl + Alt + v.

Pretty usefull for putting your desired influence weight mix to other vertex selection, which would otherwise be quite difficult. It is also a way of making certain part of the skin look rigid. Like big scales of the dragon or to maintain clothes edges together.

This website contains this shortcut and also many others you might find useful:

If you are interested further, it is using a function in a script MAYA_FOLDER/scripts/others/findSkinClusterFromSelectedComponent.mel

Wolfenstein screenshots until Moon Mission

So after long break I have played some Wolfenstein New Order again and posting a lot of new screenshots. I am always impressed how well the graphics were done in this game. Attention to detail, colors, proportions and quality level. Plus the whole game has its unified style, it was really well planned and then made with high quality.
So far the best Single Person shooter I have played recently.

Link to all screenshots:
