    Misha: well.. some details here are pretty small, and won't be that visible ingame, unless you fly the camera around, really close. so you could remove some of them, like those metal spikes in the walls.
    second thing; with a building that feels that massive, its death should be equally massive. could you try getting each individual tower collapsing? and maybe being left there as a ruin for the decay anim?
    Birth anim feels kind-of too short, could you compare the length with, say, barracks? Also, the stand work anim has the windows lighting up like on those lill new-years lights, make those waaay slower and pulsing, instead of how it is atm. also, why is there a hammer ,whacking 'nothing' in that same anim? :xxd:

    15:15, 6th Feb 2014
    MiniMage: The birth animation should not be looping. Also, the birth animation and the death animation should be a little faster. The lit up window during the stand work animation also blinks. I don't really think they should do this; so fix this.

    Misha: lookin' cool, you just need your collapsing parts to have bottom polys under them, so they don't show as holes when death anim finishes

    05:21, 9th Feb 2014
    MiniMage: While I still don't get why the model is blinking, I say this is still worth approval. I would've liked the death animation to be a tad faster, but yeah, I guess that's more of a personal preference.

    I kinda get the feeling that the texture used for the wall is too repetitive.

    looks kinda like a greyish blob the main texture is very busy and looks like the same one for a lot of it, try using an different stone texture for the wall and turrets to help distinguish them from one and other.

    Also, this can be used as a normal castle.

    Castle of the Dark Lord!?! This does not look like Dol Guldur(Sauron's Castle/Fortress), Barad-dur(Sauron's Dark Tower), Hogwarts(conqured by Dark Lord Voldemort) or Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious's palace!!!

    Liked the castle but you could try adding some sinister or dark feeling in it because it looks like a normal castle to be honest.

    I'm sure low-level vampires live there.
