Really cool character design!

1) Is this a (scripted) spring model? what phase is it in?
2) if I'm not mistaken, 7 visible pieces ingame?
3) Is this model a 'stand alone', or do you have a game idea brewing/in development?

(oh, and i think i would make the eyes a bit bigger, to not make seem dots on the neck in combination with the outline shader, witch i think you mentioned.)

Those statements seem a bit contradictive.
Although i do understand some of the trails that is making a game, and its not always wise to get everybody's hopes up (to soon).

In any case, i like it very much and i'm curious what your other models look like.

I like it, I just need to change the wait command color and make the wait icon the right color and I think shit will be cash.
I think that's the way to go, looks very good.

Kind of goofy, but looks great and I'm anxious to see what this goes with, lol.

I think its very good now smoth.
Knorke there is significant difference:

Smoth, you could now actually put the icon you used for repeat off for stop. I think it fits for that best...

Also, I'd try to move the text a bit down so that they wouldnt cover the icons behind them. Now the text breaks up the icon in parts that makes the icon dissolve.

Is it possible to add a new line so we can have repeat 'orders'? It'd look tiny otherwise

I don't know if I can or cannot add a line, good question. I will add it on my list here.
something like:

Repeat
Orders
off/on

?

Possibly, even just as it is now with a newline after repeat would be better if it meant the font size became more consistent.

Finally done modelling this structure. now to animate it.
Its a (very cartoony) Solar Chimney :-)

As for knobhead's gun. I would leave it as it is.
So looks like a baseball bat, (so does a lot of other stuff)... I'd take it as a compliment (as i suspect it is intended.)
That could work in a game: When you run out of E to shoot, the unit can switch to melee using his gun as a bat. :-)

Firestorm, like the great Zaphod said: "I would steal that!" and he did so, and it nearly earned him a suncrash at a disaster area concert.

Lucky me, my "greenhouse" is already there. But i like yours, maybee i should steel some parts, but then how to look into the mirror every morning....

"I would steal that!"
left or right head?

Its a fine line (or no line at all) between stealing and being inspired by.
I try to be original, and I definitely think you do too, so steal or be inspired all you want.

I once saw some display screen thingy on a Journeyman model that i liked, and might use it as reference if i model something similar in the future. sue me :-)

I think some one will have to prove you stole something before they can sue you for all your mirrors. :-)
(its not you couldn't look in them because of your conscience, because then you should have already stopped looking because of something like your forum name, assuming you adopted it.)

Besides, to be clear, solar chimneys are real, not my idea.
