- update 23.03.2010 22:32 GMT:
added a portrait and a (proper?) death animation, reduced the polycount a little, but the filesize reduced unproportionally (more than polycount).
- update 24.03.2010 22:11 GMT:
made 2 different models with different ingame textures. reduced the polycount. made the pot more round, more fat.

    ahh, very nice for a second scratch one, but you should try to lower the polycount and find a better texture for the pot. but it's deffintly good :)

    The poly count is much to big :(
    I would use this rusty texture of "Textures\LordSNatural.blp"

    Maybe make the cauldron rounder?, just a little so it looks more like a Cauldron instead of a pot

    Nice

    exactly what i needed thx and + rep (when i can again) :)
    but - if there are a lot of these placed on the map the poly count has to be smaller, doesn't matter with such a small model anyways :) perhaps reduce number of logs and make them and the cauldron less round etc

    update1: added a portrait (thx chilla_killa) and a (proper?) death animation.
    reduced the polycount a little and reduced the filesize more.

    i think portrait was necessary if it was to be used as an item, right?

    the only way i could greatly reduce the polycount would be to remove all what is inside the pot. the logs dont give much polys at all.

    so should i make the pot hollow from the inside (should use 2sided texture?).

    thx for help and feedback ^^

    well about the polycount look at my post before this one.

    and i dont like that rusty texture. thats what the "cauldron with heads" uses and it doesnt quite look like what i had in mind (homm resource). i tryed several different textures before setting with this one (this one looked the least bad when i tryed to wrap it -.-). but i do agree that i should suddenly learn how to make better UV. atm i pretty much just projected it on to the texture.
