Hey srry i missed your message yesterday... im not sure i understand your question...
I have done a renault ft 17 lets see if we can use it i'll post it now
well this may help you with rigging , is for maya so you may be interested
it's for free it helps if you have a rapidshare acount , if not it helps to be really patient
thanks for my tanks review I had done some othe models i'll send you some renderings of them there are some 15 models I have done but in the light of some later tutorials i have done I'll have to change some things or to trow them do to mistakes so i have to recheck all my models then i'll post them again in the mean time I started to work on Lebedev Tzar tank ( http://www.gizmowatch.com/entry/meet...nk-ever-built/ ) , and Max E railway gun ( Paris gun evolved from it ) hope to show them soon
untill then maybe we will find out how to use them in the game.
hey man... well im pretty much at the same spot you are i dont even know how to rig the model properly, im hoping theyre release the file converter/ mod tools soon so well be able to mess around with is to get the model functioning correctly.
I think it might be possible to use some of the rigging thats already in the game aswell.... like how the puckle guns are, how the guns rotate and move on the battle map.
I had actually started on an A7V but then i saw your models and theyre excellent so i figured theyre in good hands.
Unfortunately i dont know how to do normal maps in Max but theyre so much of a help, for ex you could make the panels on the side of the A7V, the ones that dont have guns that come out of them, a normal map and save some polys the A7V is a normal mapping dream, with all those hard edge sides.
Keep up the good work!!
nice job o that tank
BTW thanks for advice ,
i wanted to ask you if know about model itegration ingame , I know I should create sprites . but I dont know things like : where should be the pivot be placed , and how i'll make the tank folow the terrain , how it will use the gun and machine guns side an back facing ones also the mg s should rotate whit the turret etc
plese pm me if you know about these things if not maybe we should look for tutorials ( hard to come by for this level )
cheers and hope to hear from you soon
