    Kimberly: Hey Amp, love the detail on the carapace, works great ingame. However I have some issues:
    *Can you change the yellow to something more natural? Atm its much like a waxy, sick/vomit plastic and I feel it ruins the feel for the rest of the skin as it just doesnt seem to fit the theme and feel.

    *Can you also make the teamcolour not as pale, its quite pale atm and looks quite odd ingame, make sure your alpha channels are correct and are using black as the base and not white bases.

    thanks


    26/8/10 Kimberly: Goodjob, much better. Yeah, that colour scheme seems much better now. The teamcolour has been improved and it works ingame, approved :)

    one of the hardest models to texture because of the lack of options you can really do for this skin,
    but i love the rocky texture on the abdomen


    one thing i would like you to change however, is that flat carapace over his two front quadrupedal legs with the very monotonic tealish color

    also if you darkened everything

    I still think he could use just a few dashes of teamcolor.. it is not like it's going to completely ruin it, is it not?

    This is exactly what the Zal'gons look like in my map, Faction Wars. But in the background story there were already extinct, so I am not thinking bringing them in the game.
