Chain Element

Submitted by Infrisios
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
A basic chain element I created for "Rizzrak, the Goblin Shredder", a DotA hero introduced in v6.73.

Best used as multiple dummy units with about 50 distance from each other.

Uses a part of the Goblin Shredder texture, UV-Wrapped with VertexModify. Everything else has been completely hand-made in notepad.

    I dunno, feels more comfortable. I get the values i want more easily and if it's a plain square it's really not difficult to write. Animations are better done in notepad than anything else, anyway. Maybe I am just too lazy to learn to use other tools.

    Well, I "fixed" both Ymir's frost orb and the Ancient Apparition model (which I compressed to about half the size, plus improving animation rarities).
    Almost every model is somehow improved to take less space and require less resources, most are stripped basically everything that isn't needed.
