        Currently no - it has basic events which spawn and move small armies, but once those've triggered - it stops :<

        Do you mean, unit blobbing effect? You could want to use a variable of a unit group to add the spawned / last created unit and clear & destroy the group after you order them. :)

        You mean you can no longer make cliffs using height tool instead of default cliff? if so, have you made sure that you got a folder called UI which contains MiscData.txt?

        I've actually been reworking them to have in-game textures, though I'm still undecided about the face.

        I want to keep the original texture of the face, but the body and armour need to use in-game ones-- HNNG

        I'd say keeping the texture of the face is a must, they look very evil and unique

      Hey, HerrDave, I need some help.
      I really like your Dieselpunk troops but one thing is really standing in my way. You see, a map of mine is a fantasy-steampunk mashup and I need some sort of melee Diselpunk troops.
      So I decided to use Attachments, but however, I had ran into many problems and require just a simple aid.

      I would like the parts of the Dieselpunk troops to be used as attachments ingame. What I need is
      -Diselpunk Helmet(All variants welcome, especially that SICK Officer hlemet)
      -Diselpunk Armor(All variants would be welcome)
      -Diselpunk Guns(except the Machinegun)
      -Diselpunk Boots(All variants would be welcome)
      -Diselpunk Backpack(All varaints would be welcome)

        Hmm.. head to the models section and type in "attachment" and look for the most active attachment modeler - he/she might be able to help you out there.

        I've had nothing but trouble working with attachments, so I gave it up to learn how to animate better :\

      Hmm.. have you thought about making a bus? not super-modern, but kinda modern one. Or maybe an APC, or a tank, or a spitfire plane
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        Not really, I don't really like modern things :\

        Well-- technology is nice, but the aesthetics of modern stuff I mean

      2. Misha
        Misha
        well.. some are both 'modern' and oldtimers already.. like Cadillac or such

      Question: Are you completely on WotR and WWI/WWII atm or would you be interested in creating more models like the Questioner or the Whitecloak? An "Army of Faith" so to speak.
      1. Shar Dundred
      2. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        My Whitecloaks were based off of a faction from a book series called the Wheel of Time - while zealous and faithful to their creed, they aren't heavily based on any IRL crusaders :<

        Right now, my focus is indeed on WotK and WotR, until those projects get wrapped up, I won't be able to move onto other ones :\
        Nov 24, 2018
      3. Shar Dundred
        Shar Dundred
        Well, I did not really mean like IRL crusaders, more like a inquisitorial faction, in a fanatical direction.

        Ah, what a shame. But I understand. :)
        Maybe we can talk about this again when your other projects are done - if you want.

        Good luck with your projects and have a nice day!

      Greetings HerrDave, allow me to introduce myself. I'm Darkgatorade1st - developer that is working on a remaster/remake of LotR: War of the Ring, you might have heard or seen one of my posts on subreddit RTS - https://old.reddit.com/r/RealTimeStrategy/comments/8b1v4z/lord_of_the_rings_war_of_the_ring_fan/

      I have found your 3D models through a wc3 map and I would like to know how did you managed to obtain these WotR 3D models such as - Barracks or the Dwarven Forge, Orc Slasher etc. Is there any way I could contact in DM ? Discord, perhaps ? :)

      Thanks for your time, if you are intrigued by my WotR Remake project you can send me PMs on Reddit

      Darkgatorade1st

        HerrDave
        Though I won't be able to converse/contact you on Reddit, I will be able to chat/exchange files on Discord

        I make the units by hand, a fellow from the Hive makes WotR building bases in Blender(?) and sends them to me to be polished, optimized, and animated.

        If you'd like to chat sometime, here is my Discord contact info: HerrDave

      Greetings HerrDave, do I want to ask if in the future I would create Italian, Finnish or other infantry models?

      PS: I like your infantry tanks and armored models are incredible.
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I'm not sure if I understand your question

        I don't intend to make Italian or Finnish infantry models

        But

        If you'd like to, you can use any of my models as a base :)

      Hey, will you make WWI snipers or snipers are just for WWII?(there were snipers in WWI though)
      if you are gonna make WWI snipers, for the german sniper, id recommend using these masks and wearing trench coat

      could you check the following models:
      Panzer (III and IV)and M4 sherman, they dont have attack sound when doing attack anims
      German Panzerschreck, mortar attack sound doesnt fit it and comes late after attacking
      Knight's Cross Holder(STG guy), when he attacks, rifleman sound and gyrocopter sound comes simultaneously
    14. SonsOfSami
      SonsOfSami
      Hello sir, its been some time since you uploaded a model :)
      i just wanted to know the progress on the following WWI models:
      French soldiers
      Renault FT
      British soldiers(MG, trench fighter, sniper etc)
      and will you make WWI military buildings or just use the vanilla human buildings?
      1. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        - I've been playing SwtoR and avoiding modeling, only very recently have I modeled anything - namely Legolas from WotR

        - I have some WWI buildings, but they were rejected

        - I'm waiting on concept art from a friend on the French Soldiers
        The Renault FT was already made by somebody else, though I might be able to WotK-ify it

        - I'm waiting on concept art for more WWI/II British soldiers, namely I need the Trench Fighter and Sniper to look unique.

        Nevermind, MdlVis just crashed and corrupted my model...

        I love Russian programming >:C
        Nov 14, 2018
      3. SonsOfSami
        SonsOfSami
        can you you send me the buildings if you cant upload them when they are rejected? i'll be extremely happy if you do!

        shouldn't be the french soldiers just wear blue uniforms with caps and adrian helmets like your old models, i ,mean why need a concept art?
        do you mean the uncompleted renault FT model that i sent you?

        about the trench fighter, like i told you before, you could make a guy with a brodie and gas mask with revolver and spiked club, with the pistol anims with the old officer anims as base(crouch and shoot), and alternate anims which fights with spiked club(though that may sound time consuming :(

        the ww2 english sniper could use the usual military sniper grass/tree uniform(i dont know what it is called in english), and ww1 sniper would be just british rifleman with sniper anims

        Which model was corrupted?! dammit mdlvis...

        Thats sad to hear : (, i guess ill have to use fingolfin's mortar teams then but the problem is they dont look warcraft-ish like your models
        but why not make the field gun a generic(not faction specific) unmanned defensive building like your AA cannon or the Naval Cannon? just a suggestion if you decide to change your opinion
        Nov 6, 2018
      3. HerrDave
        HerrDave
        I genuinely don't like working on these models anymore, it went from a fun little project and turned into a sprawling pack spanning both world wars..

        For one guy, unpaid, that's a ton of actual work that has no return

        A remarkable amount of research and creativity goes into conceptualizing and stylizing each model, and then it gets buried under requests for variants when I upload it. :\

      are you going to make ww1 airplanes?
      you said before that they are hard to animate, maybe you can get hayate's permission and use his dwarf bi-plane as animation base?

      btw a small suggestion what about making the anti aircraft cannon model a single shot attack anim with cannon sound? you know the real qf 1 pounder had a rate of fire of 300

      What do you think about War3: Reforged?

      I hope the editor will stay similar to the current one
      the sc2 editor is convaluded and crappy and I hope the same wont happen to the new war3 editor
      1. HerrDave

        Pretty neat concept

        I won't be migrating my work to the new warcraft III though, far too HD for me to work with :<
