The walk cycle and the movement of the unit are not synced accurately enough, the unit is moving too fast and thus it looks like the feet are sliding forward when they're on the ground

Otherwise impressive

Yes, it's rendering on top of existing units so the idea is to just use an empty model and this will render instead. The animations are not synced yet since I couldn't find a simple blender tool to change the speed without doing a lot of stuff, although I think it's possible.

Just go into the keyframe viewer, select all and scale.

I've started to texture one of the hovercraft model I showed you some times ago. My goal is to learn how to include colors on a texture. For a start I took the Mr.D general color scheme :-)
The Texture is far from being done but that's a start ^^

I think this one is quite obvious(cockroach):
It still needs some tweaks 'n stuff.

Second try. Team color need more works and the metal texture is maybe a bit over pre-shaded ^^

Team colours need abit of shading.

Makes the model loose abit of the 3d affect..

Otherwise it looks awesome..

I like the colour on the front of it.. like that jade green or some sort of aqua?

I think the biggest problem with your texture job is that there is no clear 'design'. You need to approach your texturing the same way as you approach your modelling. There should be a cohesive design that you are laying down on top of your model.

The general grey range of the texture, compined with what appears to be reasonably random placement of teamcolour makes the texture seem a hodge-podge, and while it is technically pulled off nicely in areas on close inspection, if you pull back and consider the unit as a whole, it doesn't have a cohesiveness in it's design.

Hope I'm making sense...

Just my opinion... it isn't so much an element of design, in the sense of the order of the objects, or greebles to give us the illusion of purpose, but mainly it's about color values. The grays and blue-greens are really noisy, and without different color hues to pick out the turret from the body, or more especially the rear cannon from the front turret, it's a very noisy model from a distance. That, and the design doesn't have a very clear "front" and "back", which is an important visual cue.

Just as an experiment, I'd suggest taking the body and doing some radical alteration of the hues there- make it yellow or red, something strong, brighter and warmer. See the difference it makes in terms of what details catch your eye, especially when you zoom out. The result will probably be horrible at first glance, but it'll demonstrate some things about how to keep a model from turning into noise at a distance.

The turrets just look like theyre textures with transparency draw on flat quads, a little change might give them more substance and reflect them as they truly are

It'd be very cool if you make a seperate topic, with all the units shown up close, and explain what your game is about 8)
