    Tanky tank tank !

    This is a base design for a UT 2k4 tank. In 3Dmax 6.

    I will be adding a turret soonish and possibly some side turrets if someone can tell me if they could be made to work, I'm thinking have 3 seats, one main gun +driver, and then 1 on eather side gun.

    [UPDATE]

    tank comments

    The general design of the tank is good, but you might want to consider re-balancing where you are spending your polygons. 2.9K seems a bit high for what the picture is showing.

    You may want to spend fewer on making those gun barrels perfectly round, and more on beveling those edges on the main body, for example. Keep at it though, the proportions aren't bad on the tank. You might consider trying to model a new tank off of photo source, the one you've done looks just a bit too much like the standard 2k4 one for my tastes.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    That was the general idea, I want it to fit in with the rest of the game, I hope to skin it in much the same way.

    Ummmm - Do I just make the track as one ploy and then have a scrolling texture applied depending on speed? Or do I need to each track indervidualy?

    It depends how much detail you want to add I'd think, and whether you've made the tracks already. Considering the poly count you have so far then maybe just a texture would be better, but if you want it to look better than I'd do them all individually. As for animating it that way, it sounds like a long task of animating each individual tread, but when you think about it you only have to animate it to show all the treads moving one position along, from then you can just loop it and it will work nicely :) Personally I'd go for the latter option, it would look wrong I think with just a flat surface.

    Holy awesome model, dude. It's times like this where I become ravenously jealous of those with modeling abilities. That poly-count does seem a bit high, but the quality is super-tight.

    ... Maaaaybe.

    My fear is that I'm not sure what the process would be for skinning that. I mean, I'm sure I could conjur up the artwork itself, but how would I go about previewing the 3d version? Also, would I need to unwrap it? I'm totally ignorant on such things.

    But if you can hold my hand, I'm sure I could paint the thing. :D

    What's it for, anyway?
