Arcane Epic

Submitted by Retera
This bundle is marked as pending. It has not been reviewed by a staff member yet.
This is a model that I made while playing around with the Matrix Eater software, and I combined an Arcane Tower with an Arcane Vault to create a custom model that is named the Arcane Epic.

I should also credit Spellbound for helping me with ideas for perfecting this model.

I hope that you enjoy!

This is how to make the 1st half of the Arcane Epic

    Looks a bit simple, but its nice.
    Edit: Parts of the construction of birth animation appears in stand animation, and bottom vertices of the tower aren't collapsed, also, shouldn't the runes be billboarded?

    I'm pretty sure that those problems you are describing are a bug with whatever software you are using to load it. Did you use the World Editor?
    I saw that issue in a different application, but not in the World Editor / Warcraft III game.

    Hmm... I saw it in magos, i will try to see it in game though, one minute.
    Edit: Ah, yes, sorry, it was magos, ingame its fine, still some of the vertices that are extremely close to each other should be collapsed because they look weird ingame.

    Fix the team color strap under the tower window. One side is colored, but turn 180° and that side isn't colored

    That is actually a problem with the original arcane tower model, and the reason its unfixed is probably because one isn't supposed to see a building from behind in game perspective.
    Its a problem with the Hive viewer, its fine ingame.

    A neat little model, and a creative combo of the two.

    My favorite part is that you included a Youtube video of making it (in, like, freakin' minutes xD)

    However, if you look very closely, the model created in the video and the model posted are not the same. The arcane vault box in the video was replaced with a new base using advice from Spellbound, and all of that happened off camera.
