Author's Notes and Trivia:
  • Optimized models have built-in portrait animations, fixed bugs (if there were any), additional animation (if applicable). These can be used to serve as a template for alternative skins if you want to keep the original skin and model.

Useful to some, but the edits are too minor. Substandard.

    My homeboy! This was one of my favorite units from the expansion. : )

    ~~~

    Wait, so I get 'optimizing' the actual model (Portrait & all that), but what did you do to the standard projectile model??

    Also, love the Dark Troll version; looks like a cool magic potion.

    I don't know if it's just me, but the Apothecary Model isn't working ingame.
    It might be the same sort of problem Elbadruhel is encountering with the Forest Troll variation.


    EDIT: With the help of Retera's Model Studio, I was able to find that the texture path for the Textures\GenericGlow2_mip1.blp had been changed by the recent update. It is now just Textures\GenericGlow2.blp, which is what is causing the model to not work, since the game isn't recognizing the original alias.

    Thanks for the correction. Replaced it with another similar texture instead.

    Please put all replies in my Resources Discussions instead.
