Hello:

This is something I'm slowly working on with the help of my friend "Lordtaim"

Dragoon style! The big gun clearly improves the design. 8)

It's a low poly model I did as a portfolio piece, originally intended for Mechcommander 2, but the limitations of the engine prevented that and I ended up here looking for a substitute.

yeah but that's literally a poly-for-poly duplicate of the Mechwarrior Online Locust in 1V configuration

What part of "It's a low poly model I did as a portfolio piece, originally intended for Mechcommander 2" did you miss exactly? I used the concept art to create the piece. Of course it's based off the 1V model, as that was the original variant or "Prime" from the 3025 Technical Readout?

First post on this forum and it's a series of renders for my models. Opinions are welcome, perhaps it could use some improvements.

Looks like you are using many polygons where fewer will do (e.g. barrels & text on tank, missile cones on the jet) and too few where more would lend a sleeker look (turret, cockpit & wings)

That tank has a long barrel, meaning it is designed for high muzzle velocity long-range precise projectiles => anti-tank warfare. Yet the front armor does not have a very low slope to deflect energy from incoming projectiles. The same goes for the turret. Also there is no ERA to be seen anywhere.

The jet's missile tubes are silly. Not only do they add unnecessary weight, but the missile itself already has a body designed to whitstand 10 times the stress and velocity of the jet, yet each is contained in its own tube?!

When it comes to military weapons I'm not the best at making it realistic. As long as "it makes sense" aka possible, I'm fine with it. Thanks for pointing out though.

The plane missiles would look ok if we assume they are missile pods. Like that: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%A1-8# ... le:B-8.jpg

I'm looking for some feedbacks here.

Here's a render of each faction's MBTs. Ideally I want to make them distinct from one another, so I came up with visualisation of each tanks.

Image

From the left, the first tank has a pointy turret, signifying the faction's superior mobility.

The second has a big turret, supposedly to indicate firepower and strength.

The third has a rigid, blocky turret to tell you it's a descendant of a nokia 3310.

The fourth is a small tank, which informs you that it sucks at all 3 factors but has other areas made up for it e.g. nationalism and gadgets.

Disclaimer: I'm totally not qualified to give high quality fedback, so I'll keep it simple.

Imo it looks more of a sniper-style tank, because of its long turret and the squareness/stability/balance of the body. The turret is also placed very far forward, maybe move it back a bit?

I like this tank, and I think it conveys that feeling well. The only thing is that the cannons look weakly attatched and may fall off. (Is this the colour, though?)

I love this tank; it looks the most powerful and reasonably mobile. I am missing the flag/whatever on it, though, but apart from that it looks great!

This may be my favorite tank out of the three – the gadget looks terribly out of place but this one looks especially mobile, partially because its somewhat? shorter turret, and how lightweight it appears.

I love how similar but different all these tanks are. Are you planning on having multiple classes of tanks per faction?

Do keep in mind that even metal has a texture, these models look cool but with the relative (attempted) realism of the average SpringRTS map, these units may look out of place. Of course, custom made maps may make that not be an issue. I'd suggest testing in game and providing some images. Also keep in mind that Dark gray generally looks better than black and works better with shadows (Black can't get any darker, while 70% grey looks almost black but can.) That especially pertains to model #2, but also model #1.

Alright, this is probably the first public concept with arts and what not. Just to clarify, this set of units belongs to a branch of a faction that literally gives a middle finger to the realism, so any criticisms about it will likely be irrelevant.

Now anyway, the tank in the center is Brood Mother, basically the "Mother" of the family. It has a rather pathetic damage when compared to other units, but has a decent armour and for speed, well forget about it.

The smaller tank of the left is what it spawns when it dies. 4 of them will appear upon its death. These "Hatchlings" will have even weaker damage output and armour, but will likely be faster compared to its mother.

The smallest tank/wheeled IFV is what it spawns when a hatchling dies. 2 of these will appear upon death. Now these "Parasites" won't be an issue to anyone, but if left for too long, particularly with its fellow parasites, it could still make some dents to your fleets.

And yes, I haven't adjusted the colour scheme yet. I'm not sure if it's really necessary to do so, considering all factions have a rather similar colours in some ways.

Is there anything I should make a change about this?

I notice the smaller two are missing the red arrows adn that makes me sad :(
(they do look a tad plain but that's very okay on the smallest given its size. As for the models themselves I love them!)

Those models look pretty good, NeverLoseGuy. I would add a couple of more red parts on the smaller models. Just to look a bit more like the bigger one, even though you did a good job with that. You can tell it's a similar design and it makes sense for those vehicles to belong to the same faction.

Because I always wanted this little beauty in my game! :twisted:

The Think Tank Spiderdemon! There will be no plasma or vulcan gun attached. I am rather thinking about a mid-randed semi-artillery mindblast-styled weapon. This could make a nice support unit out of that little guy.
