What do you think, should the transports be a bit wider maybe? I mean just take the same model, and stretch the non-thruster part a bit. Just a thought, can't be sure if it'd be better when I haven't seen it like that.
Models are awesome Mr Bob. The amount of team color on them is cool. One of the problems with the current models is it's really hard to quickly tell the team unless you look at the minimap or use a widget like team platter.
Also making distinctive shapes on the top of the units would be optimum for instant recognition to help the mind process the screen. So for example a stumpy would have a team coloured cross like shape, while a janus might be circlular. Done with a mix of both the model and texture so it looks natural, but still there. You probably do this already maybe subconciously, but would be cool for when there are clusterfucks of units in one place.
One question - should krow be smaller than the T2 transport? I know that the T2 transport should be able to lift stuff like gollies and can take quite a beating (about one screamer shot), but then again the krow can take around 10 screamer shots, and the transport moves a lot faster than the krow - so shouldn't the krow be larger?

Well I figured the ultimate size is not the only factor. For instance, the T2 transport while bigger overall, is actually flimsyer as the middle is basically nonexistent to make room for whatever it's carrying. And, it goes faster because the boosters are greatly larger than that of the krow. The krow does however have a very bulky middle mass which in my mind would make it look more armored. Same way the transports in supcom (though I hate the models) are bigger than those in supcom 2, but the transports in supcom 2 look far less flimsy. (For uef that is.)
Also, with the advent of larger / higher quality plane models, I hope gunships dying doesn't just make a white ball and poof away the model. I mean, do you have any plans as for how a dying gunship thing should look? Like will the krow dying just explode into tiny little parts, or drop down with a train of smoke like a fighter? Or just disappear as an explosion covers it? (which would be dumb)
Same goes for the T2 transports, which would be much bigger and it would be more obvious the death sequence is sloppy like in the current BA.
That would proly work, I guess. I just don't want the krow death and stuff to be as shitty as in original model - it just explodes into a few pieces which drift off - doesn't make sense for such a heavily armored unit.
