Cannons

Submitted by paulH
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A Cannon, using the Steam Tank as a base model. Thought it would be useful for any Kul Tiras armies, or Pirate maps. Two versions available, one using the mortar team texture and one using the human battleship texture.

No new textures required.

07:53, 4th Feb 2009 General Frank: Hmm, reduce the polygon amount of the wheels and fix the wrapping on the middle chassis. 5th Feb 2009 Pyritie: Looks decent and works ingame. By the way my rating is 3/5 but Mr. Bob's is 4/5.

    on behalf of battleship mapmakers i thank you for a great model, its better than the straight cannon. Mainly due to the reason that its arced, making its firing anim look better

    wheel size is fine but the wheels have too much bits and pieces on them. Take off the metal straps.
    Make the cannon barrel one and a half time larger then it is now.
    Maybe use a wooden stand that is part of the cart to hold the cannon up.

    Overall pretty good i'd give it a 3.99999 out of 5 :)

    i think it's pretty good. i especially like the wheels. however, in the death animation, the cannon just disappears. other than that, great! 4/5

    This is fairly decent and useful model. But here are my qualms:

    -The wheels are too complex. Their size is fine, but they have too many polies, and the texture's detail contrasts too much with the cannons simple, cartoony texture.
    -How is this thing moving?
    -The steam tank death doesn't really fit. A metal cannon on a wooden frame would not die in a fiery implosion like that. I'd think it would just fall apart. What you could do is change the particles to dust and smoke so it looks like it is breaking apart instead of lighting on fire.

    This is a pretty good model, it has many uses, and is executed pretty well. 3/5.
    This could get a higher rating if it is tweaked and improved a bit, but it is acceptable as is. Good job.

    - Wheels may be complex, but would look godawful using Wc3's usual standard of wheels, its about time we had some which are more than just cylinders (and plus, the details show nicely ingame).
    - How is the Ballista/Glaivethrower/Catapult/Demolisher moving?
    - I'll look into the dust when I come to look back over the model, which might be awhile.

    The wheels look just fine. The model isn't even 500 polygons, so talking about overpolying it makes no sense.

    "Guns don't kill people. THIS DO!!!" great model, looks like an actual historical early 1800 century mortar. useful as a warcraftish cannon.

    Keep it up. 4/5

    Thank you!

    I may be making a new cannon sometime soon for my mod, it'll look less like a mortar.

    Looks less like a conventional cannon and more like the longer ranged Howitizer. A good alternative to the other cannon model we have which seems more like for ship combat then actual long range ground combat.

    The one that is like 10kbs or something, I would have to look it up, but it's just a mdx file and pretty small file size.

    Edit: It's the one you made :p

    Ah, I hoped that is hidden a better cannon somewhere. :p But that is just a simple model I created long time. I created also another one (which is lies somewhere in the forum), but is not that good either. But it seems the best one is on xgm by Klarnetist (unless he ripped it from some game again xd)

    Perfect, smooth animations, but makes an orc catapult firing noise! 4/5

    Looks more like a MORTAR not a howitzer.

    And a mortar it is. And very useful it is.

    Nice one

    This is nice model, wheels are fine. Only thing i found was that for some reason its portait plays death animation if i move. Could you try to fix it, or did i something wrong??? :vw_wtf:
