Re: Random WIP

Could you post a wireframe Smoth? I'm curious as to how you did the hands.

(and all the rest of it because holy wow but mostly the hands)

Re: Random WIP

That tank is ludicrously awesome.

That said how on Earth are you going to animate that coat?

Re: S3O Import/Export plugin for 3DS Max

Found no absolutely use-killing bugs, but there's a few quirks people should be aware of: All the pieces need to be Editable Meshes You MUST Reset XForm on each piece before exporting or they won't be in the right place (their origins will be; pieces less so). Also be aware that, annoyingly, Reset X...

HUZZAH!

So apparently ZK needs new superweapons.

How's this look?

Unfinished, of course.
Obviously it is a catapult for launching rabid badgers.

Re: Random WIP

The inner cylinder could work with less segments and the fans would be better as an alpha masked plane, but otherwise I kinda like the chubby retro look! I'd also advise either collapsing the nose poly or by cutting down the verts in your cylinders where they get smaller (if you've used a a side-cou...

Re: Handling weapon arcs on rotating turrets

The idea is that: The unit acquires a 'primary target' - this is what it decides is the biggest threat for whatever reason, or is the location/unit the player has ordered it to attack. Unit evaluates the target and picks the most appropriate weapon.* Unit then aims with this weapon, rotating stuff a...

Handling weapon arcs on rotating turrets

I've run into a slight snag when scripting mechs. By and large, most have weapons on either side of their body, which can only aim 180-ish degrees left/right respectively. The problem arises in that the body of the mech - which these weapons are attached to - can rotate independent of the legs, whic...

Re: RTS Design Theory Thread

Ironically it may be the zoom that does that. TA has 'epic scale' and insanely long ranged artillery, but a fixed zoom, so the ants issue never comes up.

Having a single / fixed amount of zooming solves a lot of problems, when you think about it.

Re: Random WIP

Set all the legs to point in the same direction (ie forwards) in the s3o, rotate in Create function. Then you reuse the animation over all three legs.

Or just use the final pose after it's fallen down as the corpse. Also you can hide the unit/corpse swap with particles and dust etc.
