Darkspear Troll Rider

Submitted by Hayate
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Tazdingo! Troll's rider, these speedy raptor troll rider mount on the raptor to scout the field.

Comes in two flavour, a more "Different Look" Troll Rider, and a "Mounted Headhunter", Since i personally really like the look of a normal headhunter on a raptor.

Darkspear never dies!

Works in-game, performs appropriately and is a good addition to the model section.

    Nice! I really hoped you'd make one with the armored raptor, but eh, you could do that with simple geoset merging.

    There are 3 variant for the raptor which is simple change, i might or might not make other raptor with different wrap

    I make them without armor cuz i dont want this one to outshine hero, and remain a “unit look”

    omgosh GAIZ srsly. Sooo many notifications.

    In a world where this (bless Lord_T's heart) was our only option for the ever-popular, ever-necessary Troll Raptor Rider, can I just say that It's About Time? And this pair of models is an obvious upgrade to the aforementioned. It's got two versions (a Headhunter version makes a "Hippogryph mounting" spell seem pretty cool; unmounted blue_raptor when?), and each version has two forms of attack (melee & ranged), as well as three kinds of Spell anims (rider & raptor-roar, then raptor-slashes)! Awexome.

    May I just say, though, that I'm a little 'eh' about it? The rider is pretty fine either way, but the Raptor's mesh just seems really; off. Stunted (tail too short, nose squared, etc) & such. Ah dannae, I just look at your earlier Raptors & I'm like "why didn't he just use that?"

    If you are worried about the armor (i.e. making sure it doesn't look like a hero), that can just be stripped off. And maybe you did use the same mesh but just rewrapped it... If so maybe it's the texture that makes the mesh look stranger to me.

    Ah dannae, I could be wrong. Still, very glad to see stuff like this in the Resource section. Mo' Trollz is mo' bettah!

    That means times do some model tinkering

    The raptor is exactly the same i use from the standalone raptor lel, so i guess i have to fix both

    Im not sure if i want to add all te raptor variation, i scare it might flood the hive man xd

    I had 30 variation for my raptor and if i do that for 2 riders its going to be 60 :O

    If it's the same, then it's not the model that needs tweaking I suppose (since I rather liked the original Raptors); something else about it has changed that makes me less excited (either the texture wrap, or the removal of armor)

    We've already PMed so I won't repeat myself here. : )

    The only reason I'd be worried about that is using up your precious modeling time. The Bundle system makes arbitrarily large stuff like this manageable (though I suppose 60 might be pushing it).

    A compromise might be this: gather a suggestions list of combinations people want, then when you have enough to justify sitting down & cranking them all out at once, do so (like 5 or 10). That way people have what they want but you don't waste your time making EVERY POSSIBLE CONFIGURATION.


    Or just go the Direfury route and say 'F'GET YOU'. xD

    The issue of variety is rather easy to solve, Creep Troll, Priest Troll and Trapper Troll, use the same skin, just mod one of the riders to use the creep skin and you have 9 different type of riders to select, between Forest/Dark/Ice. Similar with any other custom skin for the creeps, and about the raptor, people is free to mod the mount as their wishes. Magos isn't alien speak.

    Is the raptor a model you made? I was looking for one that is not mounted, but could not find one like it.
