Alliance Cavalry

Submitted by wingednosering
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A cavalry team, consisting of a Human Pikeman and a Night Elf mage. As usual, I've supplied a rather low quality picture, but the model quality is decent, I assure you.

Works well in-game and the file size isn't very large considering it's two heroes in one (plus a horse).

Uses only default Warcraft III skins. Made using Magos' Model Editor, Oinkerwinkle's tools and Notepad.

Version 2: Reduced the poly count quite a bit and changed the footman's weapon.

Version 3: I've listened to most of your suggestions and changed the following:

- The attack animation is now much less busy and magical
- The Night Elf is now closer to the Footman
- I've varied most of the animations, so that they are only synced for death and dissipate
- The spell animation only involves the Night Elf, the footman will not attack as well

Version 4: Reduced the poly count more. It has now been reduced almost 900 polies total!! Hopefully you won't notice too many of the changes, but the following stand out quite a bit:

- Shorter legs on the Night Elf
- Footman's plume was made simpler
- Night Elf's upper armour was remade
- Night Elf's eyebrows were removed

!Updated! Version 5: Reduced the poly count to the acceptable level and desynced the Stand - 2 animation.

I hope this helps everybody enjoy the model a little more :)

10:03, 17th Dec 2008 Cavman: Ok, I like how this is set up, with two people and the difernt bones and animations. Good work there, but there are way to many pollies. You need to drasticaly reduce those. 4th Jan 2009 Pyritie: Changes made,...

    Yes, the elf needs to be closer. If you see couples riding, you will see that the riders are very close together, not because they are in love, but because of limited ridable horse back space .

    Still to many pollies. The average hero model, even a mounted one, has around 1,000 polies. this thing has double that.

    well thats cause theres another unit riding the horse. anyways, i still think you should make a knight based on the Wc3 Campaign Screen footmans armor, and make the horse have matching armor.

    Cavman: How low do you want me to make it? I'm pretty sure it'd be impossible for me to reach 1000 with two units and a horse, without completely redoing it. There are some models on this site that have over 1500 polies for a single warrior. I'm willing to try to lower it some more, but could you give me some guidelines or help me find some polies that can be easily removed?

    NeoGaiden: I have had two footmen that look like this one on the site for some time :). Search for pikeman or longbowman or simply search for models made by me.

    Under 2000, probably close to 1,500 would be acceptable. To close or over 2000 would probably have gotten igrnored right away by any other mod.

    It's alot easier on the eyes with the desynchs and particle reductions.

    To kill more polies, i think you could get rid of their legs.... like just weld them to hell, they don't need that much detail.

    Wanna know honestly what i don't like most?
    Here ya go:
    2 Awersome Models, made awersome, looking awersome, smelling and tasting awersome, are mounten on a crappy horse, i'm not sure it can even carry them both, so if you make a hight quality skin or replace the horse it will be fully AWERSOME!

    CeDiL: Lol, I know what you mean about the low-res horse being annoying, but to get a better looking horse, I'd need to make a custom skin. That would increase file size and look crummy, because I suck at texture editing :p.


    Model has now been updated and the polies have been significantly reduced again. The total number of polies removed is almost 900 now! I'm hoping that it's low enough now?

    Obviously you've never seen 2 persons on 1 horse.
