    it kinda needs better animations.. and that's really just for the wheels and the chasis. war3 vehicles always jitter in some way, to show they're, well, functional. take the steam tank for an example. maybe it could be a good base for the custom animations

    The animations are a joke, the wrapping is horrible and the used textures in some spots are very bad.
    1600 are way too much for such model.

    You might want to start making your own meshes and no always rely on using some cheap free 3d models, as I will grow very tired of you using other people's stuff.

    - The animations are wooden and/or too wobbly and need lot's of work. You especially need to set those to non-looping that should not loop e.g 'death'.

    -Some of the wrapping is horrible and streched and mostly does not even fit. The wheels look especially bad.

    - The particle effects are really undefined and I have a feeling that you might want to look up some tutorials on that.

    A nice model that can be used as patrol and anti-infantry attack car.

    Some animations are still looping that should not loop.
    The model should disappear at the end of the death animation.

    hey, nice improvements :)

    however, there is a gap/hole on the front-side of the car chasis (its left), and i'm not sure if that's just inverted face normals, or actual faces missing.. you might wanna look into that.

    and also, the main cannon is just wimpily thin.. double its thickness to, well, still have a pretty thin cannon, but a bit beefier

    hm.. if you added 'decay bone' anim, then you'd need to rename it to 'decay flesh', and then add an empty 1000-frame animation that hides everything, and is called 'decay bone'

    otherwise, this current 'decay bone' animation needs to be a whole minute long and be called 'decay', and the unit needs to be 'mechanical' in object editor, to work.. if i remember correctly.. oO above-said 1000 frames are one second.. i think

    Please remove the unused textures from this model.
    Also, set the TC's upmost texture layer to blend.

    A little update on the model. I have removed the unused textures and I have set the TC's upmost texture layer to blend. Also I added an icon to the model.
