This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
When the clip runs out, you need to reload fast end effectively. If you fail to do so, you're dead. Easy as that.

You might aswell use it for changing attack types or I dunno.

_-=ICON REVIEW=-_


Name (Item/Ability):
Reload: To replace an empty (or inferior) clip of ammunition in order to fire off more rounds.


Usefulness [8/10]:
If it weren't for the elaborate imagination of the modding community in Warcraft 3, this icon would be completely useless. But, due to the amount of Zombie and Modern Warfare maps, this is quite useful. -8/10 Good job


Quality of Look [6.5/10]:
The icon itself is occasionally out of proportion. The clip is oddly darker than the rest of the weapon, the shading isn't quite right. The red arrow isn't as smooth as it should be, which detracts from the overall look of the icon, and the color of the arrow doesn't fit very well either. The back of the gun doesn't fit well at all either, it's too large and looks as though it should be made of wood
(Apparently it's an M-16, in which case I retract the wooden rifle-back suggestion)


Overall [7/10]

Scyth-Master, good review, but I'd like to point out some minor mistakes in it:

lol wut? From that perspective, there would be no point in modding any game.

The icon itself is occasionally out of focus.

How can it be occasionally out of focus? It's not an animation. It doesn't go out of focus then comes back again.

The clip is oddly darker than the rest of the weapon

Ever heard of shading, differences between light reflections?

The red arrow isn't as smooth as it should be

It was a request from the moderation to remove details from the arrow.

and the color of the arrow doesn't fit very well either.

I had to find a way to make it different from the rest of the icon. Imagine it with a grey or black arrow.

The back of the gun doesn't fit well at all [...] it's too large

Explain that to the inventor of the M-16 assault rifles. Yes, it fits if the magazine is placed.

and looks as though it should be made of wood.

Why wood? Imo, it looks like everything but wood.

Thank you in advance...

I mean for the most parts most maps don't use an ability to reload weapons, they do it automatically (even when modded to be futuristic).

I meant some bits of it are out of proportion, I'll edit that.

Yes, but it seems a little off (also a little bit too 2-dimensional shading-wise).

It was a request from the moderation to remove details from the arrow.

Strange, but okay.

I had to find a way to make it different from the rest of the icon. Imagine it with a grey or black arrow.

I was thinking yellow or green actually... black or gray wouldn't make any sense, be realistic.

Explain that to the inventor of the M-16 assault rifles. Yes, it fits if the magazine is placed.

Well, if it is a M-16 Assault Rifle, it isn't dark enough than. I've fired quite a few at the police firing range, and they're not gray by a long shot.

Why wood? Imo, it looks like everything but wood.

Because the overwhelming rustic look of the icon detracts from the quality imo, but it's your decision. I do like it, don't get me wrong.
